'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' Review: DC Movies' Grim Self-Importance

'Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice': 'Grim and ponderous' DC Comics adaptation starring Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck. 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' review: Self-important 'hip and affected pessimism' According to no less an expert then director Zack Snyder, when saying the title of his relentlessly grave, monochromatic, and humorless superhero epic, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, do not say “versus.” Just say the letter “v.” And savor the thought because it's the only instance of economy in a film that otherwise revels in its unholy excess of words, sounds, pixels, edits, explosions, and regard for its own importance. Make no mistake: to those tasked with guiding the fortunes of corporate behemoths (in this instance, Warner Bros., the […]

Christopher Nolan: 'Batman' trilogy director's next movie has release date. Next Christopher Nolan movie release date Warner Bros. will release the first post-Interstellar Christopher Nolan movie on July 21, '17. The film has yet to be baptized. Warners, which began its days as the Rin Tin Tin studio, also released Nolan's Batman trilogy movies, which collected $2.463 billion worldwide. Besides, the studio handled the sorta sci-fier Inception (2010), which took in $825.53 million, in addition to earning a Best Picture Academy Award nomination. The outright sci-fier Interstellar, which received mixed-to-unenthusiastic reviews in North America, opened in Nov. 2014. The film went on to gross $675.02 million worldwide, $188.02 million of which in the U.S. and Canada. Paramount handled the domestic […]

'The Dark Knight Rises' logo. 'The Dark Knight Rises' lone terrorist gets life in prison The man who killed 12 people and injured 70 others at a July 2012 screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, in the Greater Denver area, has been sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole. The sentence was announced today, Aug. 7, '15. Some were expecting that 27-year-old James Holmes was going to get the death penalty. According to Mother Jones, the jury deliberated for less than seven hours. The Aurora tragedy is one of the worst mass shootings in U.S. history. As of Feb. '15, pre-trial expenses in the case against the TDKR mass murderer cost state taxpayers $5.5 million. The […]

'Interstellar' Movie Review: Whole Less Than Sum of Ravishing Parts

interstellar-movie-anne-hathaway

'Interstellar' movie with Anne Hathaway. 'Interstellar' movie review: 'Ravishing, but overextended mind-bender' There are many intriguing questions raised in director Christopher Nolan's ravishing, overextended mind-bender Interstellar. One of the first: has a theoretical physicist ever received an executive producer credit on a nine-figure, studio movie? Probably not, but if 74-year old Caltech professor Kip Thorne were to find any director willing to tap his intellect for an above-the-line credit, it would be Nolan. His movies are puzzle boxes of plot and theme that have become grander in scope as they've become more opaque in effect. At this point, every Nolan film contains the moment when we ask ourselves if the director himself has completely thought everything through. That's certainly true […]

MAN OF STEEL Review: Superman Movie Sensory Enhanced, Heart Deprived

MAN OF STEEL

Man of Steel review: Zack Snyder's sensory-bludgeoning Superman movie lacks humor, charm, wonder (image: Henry Cavill in Man of Steel) Two hundred and twenty-five million dollars buys a lot when you're making a superhero blockbuster. In Zack Snyder's 143-minute sensory bludgeoning, Man of Steel, the director spends almost a quarter of a billion smackers on planetary vistas, collapsing buildings, flying bodies, and a sound mix so aggressive you'll go blind as well as deaf. But seemingly, there's nary a line in the bloated budget for humor, charm, wonder, or even the slightest acknowledgment that we're supposed to be having fun. Any justification for such a self-serious take on Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster's iconic creation is financial, not creative. Maybe […]

'The Dark Knight Rises' New Posters Online

The Dark Knight Rises: Three new posters surface online The Dark Knight Rises had several other posters that never made it to billboards and computer screensavers around the globe. Now, Trailer Park, the marketing company that created the posters for TDKR distributor Warner Bros., has posted on their website three of those. The most striking – and the most different from the posters used during the Dark Knight Rises marketing blitz – is the one picture above. Another poster features Bane in his trademark “Come and Get It” pose, while another yet has the word FEAR printed on it. (Above, The Dark Knight Rises previously unseen poster.) A major worldwide box office hit, The Dark Knight Rises turned out to […]

'The Dark Knight Rises' Box Office: Surpasses 'The Dark Knight' Worldwide?

the-dark-knight-rises-batman

The Dark Knight Rises box office: TDKR passes $900 million milestone worldwide First of all, there are no official figures as yet. That's because Warner Bros. hasn't released international box office data for Monday, August 20. But considering that The Dark Knight Rises' Monday cume stood at $899.76 million (as found at Box Office Mojo), it's not mere speculation to assert that Christopher Nolan's third and final Batman movie passed the $900 million milestone yesterday. That is, unless international weekend estimates released Sunday were way off. But if those estimates are indeed on target, something else equally momentous has taken place as well: The Dark Knight Rises has surpassed The Dark Knight at the international box office. TDKR had a […]

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Box Office: No Four-peat

The Dark Knight Rises box office: Unlike The Dark Knight, No 'four-peat' The Dark Knight Rises, Christopher Nolan's third movie in his Batman trilogy, is down two spots on the North American box office chart this weekend, Aug. 10-12. After three weekends on top, TDKR's fell behind two new releases: Tony Gilroy / Jeremy Renner's thriller The Bourne Legacy and Jay Roach / Will Ferrell / Zach Galifianakis' satirical comedy The Campaign. (Picture: The Dark Knight Rises Batman Christian Bale.) According to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo, on its fourth weekend out, The Dark Knight Rises earned $19.54 million (down 45 percent) vs. The Bourne Legacy's $40.26 million and The Campaign's $27.44 million. For comparison's sake: The Dark […]
