Even in our brave new world, where gratitude and humility and generosity of spirit often seem to be in short supply, at the mercy of greed, abuse of power, disregard for the rule of law, and megalomaniac self-interest cynically masquerading as an aggressive strain of nationalist, populist passion, there are good, everyday reasons to look around and take stock of blessings in one’s immediate surroundings.
And speaking specifically as one who has the privilege and opportunity to occasionally write about matters concerning the movies, and even a (very
“4K Ultra HD with Hdr is an incredibly exciting new home video format that allows a much closer recreation of viewing the original film print,” said Christopher Nolan. “The deeper colour palette comes closer to matching the analogue colours of film and we’ve restored the original theatrical mixes for this release. If you can’t rewatch these films in the theater, this is the best experience you can have in your own home.”
“Batman Begins” explores the origins of the Batman legend and the Dark Knight’s emergence as a force for good in Gotham. In the wake of his parents’ murder, disillusioned
On December 1, 2017, the film will be re-released in a select limited engagement in 50 IMAX® and 70mm locations in 34 domestic markets, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Dallas, Atlanta, and Toronto, among others.
Following, on January 24, the film’s re-release will be expanded to include more than 250 additional locations. Sue Kroll, President Worldwide Marketing and Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures stated, “With ‘Dunkirk,’ Christopher Nolan broke new ground in the use of large-format cameras to create a theatrical event that demands to be seen on the largest possible canvas. As we head into the holiday season, we are excited to offer audiences another opportunity to be swept up in this truly immersive moviegoing experience…whether for the first time or again.”

And yet, there are some things that remain as extraordinary as when they were invented. Sunglasses. In N Out. Game 7. Star Wars.
Of all the reasons to keep watching Star Wars movies, one is often overlooked: there are lots of secrets stashed in that galaxy far,
The British actor, 59, has played real people before, from Sid Vicious (Sid and Nancy) to Lee Harvey Oswald (JFK). But his Churchill is something different.
Of course, much of the credit goes to the man who oversaw the whole thing, that being director Christopher Nolan. Sure, there are probably other auteurs in Hollywood who are also fans of the Caped Crusader, but it took the right filmmaker at the right time to breathe new life into the genre.

Roberts is set to play Sam, a soldier who serves with Tolkien during The Great War. He joins a cast that also includes Lily Collins (To the Bone), Colm Meaney (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) and Tom Glynn-Carney (Dunkirk), while Dome Karukoski (Tom of Finland) directs.
Tolkien will explore the legendary author’s formative years at school as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a fellow group of outcasts prior to the outbreak of World War I, which threatens to tear their ‘fellowship’ apart.
Roberts is currently starring in the third and final season of Amazon’s Red Oaks, and will next be seen in the historical drama The Current War.
Vying for their first nods are Danish Dan Laustsen for Guillermo del Toro’s lush ’60s romantic fantasy-thriller, “The Shape of Water,” Swiss Hoyt Van Hoytema (BAFTA-nominated for “Interstellar” and “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”) for his 65 mm photography on Christopher Nolan’s World War II
epic “Dunkirk,” and Rachel Morrison, who could become the first woman to break into the ranks of nominated directors of photography for Dee Rees’ southern epic “Mudbound.”

Three Fox films offer stunning VFX: “War for the Planet of the Apes,” which advances its visual effects technology over the last Matt Reeves installment featuring Weta Digital’s astonishing array of digital apes led by performance capture master Andy Serkis as Caesar, could win Weta’s Joe Letteri (“Avatar,” “King Kong,” “The Lord of the Rings”) his fifth Oscar. Another visually sumptuous sequel is Denis Villeneuve’s “Blade Runner 2049.” And Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water” is also impressive.
Two Warner Bros. blockbusters, Christopher Nolan’s World War II epic “Dunkirk” and Patty Jenkins’ World War I superhero origin myth “Wonder Woman,
One of the most striking images from Get Out is a closeup of British actor Daniel Kaluuya wide-eyed in shock as tears stream down his face. As the $4.5m indie horror evolved this year from buzzed-about Sundance hit to $250m-grossing global phenomenon, this image increasingly became the go-to visual to accompany admiring features and reviews, because it effectively communicates something of the movie’s unsettling nature. (Spoiler: Kaluuya’s tears are not a byproduct of mirth.) Which makes it all the stranger that much of this week has been given over to a wide-ranging discussion as to whether Jordan Peele’s high-tension satirical horror should be classified as a comedy.
It is all because of the
Variety reports that Paulson, after finishing up her work on American Horror Story for the season, will be looking to keep her busy schedule going by joining the cast of The Goldfinch.
The acclaimed book by Donna Tartt is being adapted by Warner Bros. and Amazon Studios with Ansel Elgort (Baby Driver) on board to play Theo, Aneurin Barnard (Dunkirk) to play Boris, and with John Crowley directing.
The Goldfinch tells the story of Theodore Decker who, after surviving a terrorist bombing at an art museum, with his mother being killed, goes on an adventure that sees him involved in art forgeries and living with his deadbeat father in Las Vegas.
Paulson will play the character Xandra, who is the girlfriend of Theo’s father.
The Goldfinch is set to go into production at the beginning of 2018 with
