Anne Hathaway Talks Dark Knight Rises

As 2012 creeps ever closer and we become more and more excited about finally getting to see Chris Nolan’s third – and, assuming Warner Bros. doesn’t find some way to make him stay – final trip to Gotham City with The Dark Knight Rises, Anne Hathaway has been chatting to the LA Times’ Hero Complex blog about the way she’s playing Selina Kyle, AKA Catwoman.

Turns out, she’s taking her inspiration from the world Nolan, Christian Bale, Tom Hardy and the rest have created this time. “What’s come before doesn’t limit or even affect this new version,” Hathaway says. “It doesn’t affect me because each Catwoman – and this is true in the comics as well – she is defined by the context of the Gotham City created around her. Catwoman is so influenced by Gotham and whoever is creating Gotham at the time. Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman was informed by Tim Burton’s Gotham and Eartha Kitt was informed by Adam West’s Gotham. You have to live in whatever the reality of the world is and whatever Gotham is.”

So what is the world this time, then? “Gotham City is full of grace. You look at Heath’s performance as the Joker, there was a lot of madness there but there was also a grace and he had a code there. There’s a lot of belief and codes of behaviour in Gotham and my character has one, too. A lot of the way she moves and interacts with people is informed by her worldview. Chris has given us all such complex, defined, sophisticated worldviews that it’s just a matter of doing your homework and getting underneath the character’s skin.”

Part of that approach saw the actress drawing inspiration from a sexy siren of the past, in the shape of Heddy Lamar. Particularly her performance in 1933’s Ecstasy. “I know this sounds odd, but her breathing is extraordinary,” Hathaway says. “She takes these long, deep, languid breaths and exhales slowly. There’s a shot of her exhaling a cigarette and I took probably five breaths during her one exhale. So I started working on my breathing a lot.”

We’ll see the results on July 20. For more from Hathaway – including a small, but relevant spoiler about a major scene in The Dark Knight Riseshead over to the Hero Complex site.

Paperboy Poster Delivered

Paperboy Poster Delivered

While his civil rights march drama Selma remains stuck in development hell, Precious director Lee Daniels has ploughed ahead shooting sultry thriller The Paperboy. And now the first poster for the film has arrived online, and is sitting below for your perusal.

Matthew McConaughey and Zac Efron lead the cast in the film, which novelist Pete Dexter has adapted from his own 1995 book.

McConaughey is a reporter investigating the possible wrongful conviction of a man sitting on death row (John Cusack). The newspaperman ropes in his wayward brother (Efron) to help with the job, but the younger man ends up falling for a beautiful woman (Nicole Kidman), who has been courting danger by writing passionate letters to Cusack. Suffice to say, it all becomes tangled up in a twisty mystery of sex, violence and bad decisions.


To see the poster full size at The Film Stage, click the pic above.

The poster’s a nice change from the usual floaty head style – patterned after a novel itself, it’s evocative and shoves the cast front and centre. We’re hoping that this could be something better than your run-of-the-mill thriller.

There’s no set release date either here or in the States yet, but we can expect this one sometime in 2012.

2012 Oscar Poster Hits The Web

Much like taking down the tree and realising that you’ve still got far too much turkey left over, there are a few traditions that always seem to arrive from Hollywood between Christmas and New Year. One is the arrival of the poster for the Academy Awards Ceremony, which you can slide your eyes over below.

It’s not exactly the most exciting Oscar image to ever strike the world, but the Academy is clearly looking to play up the themes of movies as a celebration and honour/tradition, which, as we all know, is the way to attract young audiences. The tagline "celebrate the movies in all of us" is also a little odd, unless the target audience is toddlers who have somehow swallowed a Blu-Ray.

Sticking in strictly safe territory with a bunch of past Best Picture winners (and one Best Director anomaly), the poster features the usual gold statuette alongside images from Forrest Gump, The Sound Of Music, Gone With The Wind, Driving Miss Daisy, Giant (the aforementioned anomaly), Gladiator and Casablanca.

The awards will be handed out at the 84th ceremony on February 26, with Billy Crystal overseeing the event.

New Image From Brave Arrives

And there's a new look at Frankenweenie

New Image From Brave Arrives

The run of post-Christmas picture previews continues today with Disney releasing new looks of two of its biggest animated projects for 2012. Throw your eyes down to the gallery for new looks at both Pixar’s Brave and Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie, courtesy of Collider.

Neither of the pictures offers much in the way of truly revelatory content – after all, we know what the main characters in the films look like already, but it’s always nice to see some extra imagery.

Brave, of course, is the Emeryville gang’s big release for the year, and what we hope will wipe the unpleasant memories of Cars 2 from our collective brains. The studio’s first full-on mythical tale, it finds headstrong Princess Merida (Kelly Macdonald) chafing against tradition and custom and desperate to prove that she’s more than just the future wife for some annoying lord’s son. But her actions end up unleashing chaos and fury in the kingdom, and soon she’ll have to face a huge challenge and an ancient curse to save her family and the entire kingdom.

We’ll finally get to see Brave on August 17. But we’ll have to wait until October 5 for Frankenweenie, Burton’s new stop-motion effort based the 1984 short that helped make his name in Hollywood.

It’s the typically twisted (yet utterly charming) tale of young Victor, who harnesses his scientific know-how to resurrect best pal and pet Sparky when the pooch is killed. While he initially tries to hide his creation, Sparky gets out and causes trouble for the town…

Silence Of The Lambs Will Be Preserved

Silence Of The Lambs Will Be Preserved
National Film Registry list announced

Silence Of The Lambs Will Be Preserved

Hannibal Lecter will be opening a celebratory bottle of Chianti and finding someone to have for dinner at the news that Jonathan Demme’s 1991 thriller The Silence Of The Lambs is part of the National Film Registry’s typically eclectic list of films to be Preserved For All Time.*

Announced by the Library of Congress across the pond, the list is always made public around this time of year and movies make the cut because, according to Librarian of Congress James H Billington, they are “selected because of their enduring significance to American culture. Our film heritage must be protected because these cinematic treasures document our history and culture and reflect our hopes and dreams."

So what other “treasures” are on there besides the psychopathic slitherings of Doctor Lecter? Robert Zemeckis’ still-divisive, Oscar-scooping Forrest Gump for one, and Charlie Chaplin’s 1921 classic The Kid for another.

Also on the list? Disney's Bambi (1942), Billy Wilder’s drinking drama The Lost Weekend (1945), George Pal’s 1953 take on HG Wells’ The War Of The Worlds and John Ford’s Western epic The Iron Horse (1924).

And it’s not just big, well known titles, either: more obscure work such as 1971 documentary Growing Up Female and child labour drama The Cry Of Children from 1912 is also on there. We’re especially happy to see that Ed Catmull’s ground-breaking work, A Computer Animated Hand is also present, which, while it might be only a minute long, showcases a technique that is one of the roots of today’s effects technology and part of the DNA for Pixar.

To check out the full list, take a look at the LA Times’ report on the announcement.

*Mayan apocalypse not withstanding, of course.

Latest Amazing Spider-Man Pics Online

Latest Amazing Spider-Man Pics Online
Get a close-up of the web shooters

Source: Facebook

Update: Two extra pics have now shown up, one a tribute to a classic Spidey pose, the other a shot of Garfield and Stone at school. You can see them in the gallery.

Looking to keep The Amazing Spider-Man in our festively blurred noggins over this quiet period between Christmas and New Year, Sony has shoved out a few new pictures from the film on to the web.

Focusing mostly on Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield)’s early days as the web-shooting hero, the new images feature him discovering his new found powers and going a little bit Teen Wolf on the high school basketball court. There is also a nice, close look at the mechanical web system he’ll be using, a switch back to the character’s roots before more recent comic runs – and Sam Raimi’s cinematic version – had them as organic developments.

Also pictured is Emma Stone’s Gwen Stacey looking academic and her father, police chief George Stacey (Denis Leary).

But if you were hoping for new images of Rhys Ifans as Dr Curt Connors – whose scientific tinkering leads him to become this movie’s big bad, The Lizard, – you’ll have to look elsewhere. We’d suggest the latest issue of Empire, which is in stores now, and features not just Spidey, but also The Avengers, Dredd, The Hobbit, The Hunger Games and loads more...

The film will be out on July 4, 2012.

First Argo Image Arrives

First Argo Image Arrives
Ben Affleck goes bearded

Source: Warner Bros. (Via The Playlist)

With the New Year almost upon us and the news streams largely quiet, this is the one of the few annual times the studios choose to bombard us with preview pictures from their upcoming output. Warners has shoved a raft of new pictures online, with one of particular interest – the first official image from Ben Affleck’s Argo.

Affleck passed on the chance to make the new Superman for this one, an intriguing ripped-from-real-life tale of six American hostages and the audacious plan to evacuate them safely from Iran.

Adapted from Joshuah Berman’s article about the incident by writer Chris Terrio Argo follows CIA ‘exfiltration’ specialist Tony Mendez (Affleck) in November 1974 as he’s informed of the situation. You see, militants have stormed the US embassy and taken 52 Americans hostage. Six have escaped and are finding refuge with the Canadian ambassador, but they need to leave the country pronto. So Mendez cooks up an idea to have them listed as members of a location scouting team for a sci-fi movie. Which will require the US government to create a fictional production…

As he did with The Town, Affleck has recruited a solid cast to bring the quirky story to life, with such talented folk as Alan Arkin, Bryan Cranston, John Goodman, Kerry Bishé, Kyle Chandler, Rory Cochrane, Christopher Denham, Tate Donovan, Clea DuVall, Victor Garber, Zeljko Ivanek, Richard Kind, Scoot McNairy, Chris Messina and Michael Parks all aboard.

Argo will hit our cinemas on October 5, 2012.

New Hobbit Production Video Online

New Hobbit Production Video Online
Jackson and co go on location...

In case you missed us tweeting about it on Christmas Eve because you were too busy being excited about Santa delivering pressies, another bearded man brought a treat for us all. Yes, Peter Jackson released the latest production diary video for The Hobbit, and you can take a look below.



The new footage examines the massive logistical challenge that is location shooting on the new films, and showcases how the crew deals with it. If you thought family camping holidays required a bit of organising, that’s a piece of lembas bread compared to what’s needed when hundreds of people unite to make a movie in remote chunks of New Zealand.

But there’s also a chance to appreciate the beautiful countryside once more being used to help bring JRR Tolkien’s tales to life. Clearly intent on bringing the same scope to the Hobbit movies as he did to the Lord Of The Rings trilogy, Jackson has sought out some amazing vistas.

There’s also a chance to re-visit an old favourite place, with a segment of the vid dedicated to how the team has re-created Hobbiton on the same farmland as before, this time crafting the Hobbit homes in stone and wood so they can stand for years to come.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will arrive on December 14, 2012. There And Back Again will follow on December 13, 2013. For more on the movies, check out the latest issue of Empire, which is available right now.

Alan Taylor Will Direct Thor 2

Alan Taylor Will Direct Thor 2

Given the sense of Norse (via alien Asgard) pomp and circumstance Kenneth Branagh and Marvel brought to Thor, we’re frankly surprised the quest to find a director for the sequel hasn’t turned into some sort of legendry competition, with applicants forced to remove a sword from a stone in a myth-mixing show of power. But no, it’s actually just been the usual old set of Hollywood swings and roundabouts, with Alan Taylor now the chosen one.

Who he? Well, it would seem that Marvel is committed to finding someone with Game Of Thrones experience as Taylor is credited with some of the show’s best episodes, including the first season finale. He’s also worked on other shows, including The Sopranos, Lost, Deadwood and The West Wing.

And Taylor’s not even the first name from Thrones to be linked to the Thor Job – fellow show director Brian Kirk was rumoured back when Branagh decided not to return for the second outing. According to the Heat Vision blog, Taylor won the chance over another Thrones man, Daniel Minahan.

But most recently, it appeared that Monster director Patty Jenkins would be guiding the hero’s future, before either ditching the gig over “creative differences” or being shown the door thanks to Marvel’s concerns about the need to hit the pre-ordained release date of 15 November 2013.

So while Taylor is sitting in the chair right now, we’ll wait and see if he’s still there when the likes of Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins and Natalie Portman return to the set and the cameras roll…

Baz Luhrmann Hurt On Great Gatsby Set

Baz Luhrmann Hurt On Great Gatsby Set

Baz Luhrmann is known for his high-energy cinematic output, a product of his equally peppy directing style. But after getting a head injury for Christmas on the set of his latest, The Great Gatsby, the filmmaker might want to consider watching where he walks in future.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald (via The Hollywood Reporter), Luhrmann hurt himself while working on a small chunk of the shoot. “We were on quite a cramped set and he was ducking under the crane," he says. "He struck his head on the weights on the end of the camera crane. He split open his head, and we had to get the doctor," co-producer/music supervisor Anton Monsted apparently told the Herald.

With three stitches in place and Luhrmann otherwise fine, the injury delivered a small Christmas present to the cast and crew, with the film shutting down a day early for the holiday break. They’ll pick up the remaining shots when the cameras crank once more in January.

That group, of course, includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Isla Fisher, Jason Clarke and Elizabeth Debicki in a new version of F Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel. The film is scheduled to arrive a year from now in the US, though there’s no set date for the UK yet.

Ghost Protocol Alive At US Box Office

Despite this weekend boasting Christmas day opportunities for US filmgoers to hit the multiplexes, there was little cheer to go around the box office once the big man in the red suit had been down the chimney and the estimates calculated. But there was good news for another man obsessed with climbing down high objects, as Tom Cruise and his Mission: Impossible team at least claimed the top of the charts, with Ghost Protocol riding the success of last week’s IMAX sneak peeks to snatch $26.5 million over the weekend for a $58.9 running total so far.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows held on well, seeing off the other new competition and falling to second place with $17.8 million, while Alvin And The Chipmunks: Chipwrecked also stayed strong with $13.3 million in third.

As mentioned, Cruise’s new release competition didn’t fare quite as well. David Fincher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo managed fourth with $13 million but Tintin saw US audiences much more reluctant to embrace it than those over here, earning $9.1 million for a fifth place launch. Still, the movie’s overseas success should help it keep the cash registers ringing.

Sadly for Cameron Crowe, his big return to filmmaking with We Bought A Zoo appears extinct on arrival. Despite boasting the likes of Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson and a pack of heart-warming animals, the emotional comedy drama could only manage sixth place, taking $7.8 million.

New Year’s Eve was seventh with $3 million, Arthur Christmas fell to eighth with $2.7 million, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn was down to ninth with $2.1 million and, rounding out the top 10, Hugo made $2 million this weekend.

To break into the full charts from outside the server room, head to Box Office Mojo.

Spider-Man Pics Shoot Onto Web

Spider-Man Pics Shoot Onto Web
Rhys Ifans gets his bad guy on


No-one is calling Marc Webb's Spidey reboot 'The Amazing Lizard', but it's worth remembering that there's not one, but two origin stories at play in the blockbuster. Say hello, then, to The Amazing Spider-Man's resident evil, Dr. Curt Connors. So far we've only glimped him in passing in the trailer, but he has this new picture from the movie all to himself and takes the chance to engage in some kind of watery mayhem.

Rhys Ifans plays the doomed scientist, Spider-Man's mentor-turned-nemesis, whose efforts to regenerate his missing arm lead him deep into the realm of body horror. It has all the hallmarks of being an object lesson in not drinking the Kool Aid.

"The Lizard is the embodiment of the movie's theme - that we all have a missing piece," explains director Webb. "Curt is not as strong as Spider-Man on the inside, but he wants to get this arm and fill that void, and essentially he becomes a big bully."

July 4 is the date to mark for The Amazing Spider-Man's theatrical release on this side of the pond. As you may know by now, the movie leads off Empire's super-massive 2012 preview, available in magazine form from all good newsagents.
