Guillermo del Toro Directing The Shape of Water

Awards season is already in full swing with the HFPA having awarded the Golden Globes this past weekend, and the LAOFCS announcing their winners last month. Often times, they are an indicator of who will end up being nominated or winning an Academy Award. However, actors, writers, producers, and directors in respective guilds and societies have their own awards that recognize its members. We’ve already seen nominations from SAG, WGA, and PGA, and now the Directors Guild of America have released their own nominees for film and TV.

Among those honored are Guillermo del Toro for The Shape of Water, Greta Gerwig for Lady Bird, Jordan Peele for Get Out, and Aaron Sorkin for Molly’s Game. There’s also Christopher Nolan for Dunkirk and Martin McDonagh for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Check out the full list below.

Batman v Superman: Ultimate Edition

Cloverfield and Let Me In director Matt Reeves recently talked about the latest Batman standalone movie, currently known as The Batman. Reeves came on board to direct after Ben Affleck, who also stars, opted out of his directorial duties.

Reeves, who also helmed this month’s War for the Planet of the Apes and its predecessor Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, says he wants to tell an emotional Batman story. He also compared the legendary comic book character to Caesar in the Apes movies (played by Andy Serkis), and talked about what he liked about Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises director Christopher Nolan’s work.

Dunkirk trailer header

While Christopher Nolan has stepped away from the superhero genre for quite some time, he’s still in the business of large-scale epic films. The Interstellar director will be taking audiences to the past by revisiting one of the most critical events in World War II. Dunkirk is based on the real-life aftermath of the Battle of Dunkirk, which saw the Allied Forces (Britain, Belgium, Canada, and France) suffering a major blow to their military force and then stranded on the French coast. With the German army surrounding them, the Allied Forces execute Operation Dynamo, which helped evacuate the stranded soldiers in what is considered one of the most successful rescue missions of the war.

Check out the newest trailer for the film here below.

Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk

Warner Brothers has released the first full trailer for Dunkirk, the World War II drama from the Dark Knight trilogy, Inception, and Interstellar director Christopher Nolan. We saw a brief teaser trailer for the movie back in August.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt in The Dark Knight Rises

There is always one weak film in a trilogy, and for Christopher Nolan‘s Dark Knight trilogy that film was The Dark Knight Rises. Of course, no film is perfect, and while it was ambitious and had great action, it was bloated and clunky.

Still, if the trilogy had to end one way, no one could really have done it any better than what Nolan had to offer. And it seems that Joseph Gordon-Levitt believes that it was the perfect ending. More on the story below.

Heath Ledger as Joker in The Dark Knight

I don’t know if people will be talking about Zack Snyder’s and Ben Affleck’s Batman when the year 2026 or so rolls around or not. What I do know is that people are still talking about Christopher Nolan‘s and Christian Bale‘s Batman, especially 2008’s The Dark Knight, which featured the late Heath Ledger‘s unforgettable Oscar-winning performance as the Joker.

An excellent new YouTube channel (only a couple of months old) called Lessons from the Screenplay takes a closer look at Ledger’s Joker in a recently released video, and what truly made him the perfect villain to face off with the Batman.

You can check it out below.

Dunkirk trailer header

In the past few years, Christopher Nolan has given us a taste for superhero theatrics in the Dark Knight trilogy, taken us to the various levels of dreams in Inception, and traveled through space and time in Interstellar. But his next feature is a bit more grounded in reality; in fact, it draws a bit from history.

Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for Dunkirk, a film that follows the events of the British military operation that helped save the lives of 330,000 soldiers while on the shores of French seaport of Dunkirk. Check out the trailer below.

Superhero films can be a dime a dozen, especially since a lot of them come out every other if not every month of the year. So it would be hard for one to make an everlasting impression on anyone, let alone someone like Steven Spielberg.

Now, the legendary filmmaker, who is at the Cannes Film Festival to help promote is upcoming film, The BFG – check out the new trailer here – is talking about which superhero films are his favorite. And don’t worry, he is not a part of the conspiracy, as his list is a pretty nice mix from Marvel and DC. Check out which of the superhero films are his favorite below.

Christopher Nolan’s Next Film To Be Based On World War II’s Operation Dynamo

Christopher Nolan

Back in September, there was a report that Christopher Nolan would be releasing another film in the middle of the summer blockbuster season. Most recently, Quentin Tarantino and Paul Thomas Anderson talked about the importance of 70mm film, and Tarantino credited Nolan for creating a new interest in the format. During that conversation, Tarantino then said that Nolan’s next project would be using 70mm. All of this happening right after The Weinstein Company had helped retrofit 100 theaters to fit the 70mm presentation that Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight was shot in.

It only makes sense. Filmmakers like Tarantino, Anderson, Nolan, and J.J. Abrams have put an emphasis on using stock film to shoot their movies as opposed to using digital. And using the wider screen format creates a more immersive experience. Nolan shot The Dark Knight, Inception, The Dark Knight Rises, and Intersteller in IMAX. But what could Nolan’s next IMAX film be? Well, a new report says that it will center on World War II’s Operation Dynamo, which helped see the evacuation of Allied Troops. More on the new project here below.
