During a recent chat with the Huffington Post for ‘Rush,’ Hans Zimmer commented about both Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar’ and the upcoming ‘Batman Vs. Superman/’Man of Steel’ sequel. Asked what’s next on his slate, the Oscar-winning replied, “I’ve just started on “Interstellar,” Christopher Nolan’s movie, in bits and pieces. I started it in January, but now I really have to go and pay attention. Then I have another little something coming up, but they don’t want me to talk about it yet. Then, you know, comes that pesky question. I thought I was done with Batman. I have to think about that. I have to think about how that fits into what I want to do next.”
The outlet then asked if he has open invitation from Warner Bros. to return for the 2015 ‘Man of Steel’ follow-up, “It’s not really like that. I think it’s really important for everybody to always take a deep breath and have a think about it. “Do we really want to embark on this journey?” Because the question really is: Do I have anything new to say? Is there anything I could add that I haven’t done already? When we did “Batman Begins,” we saw that as an autonomous movie. We never knew we were going to do two and three. Everybody thinks, “Oh, of course you did!” If you think about it, though, we never knew. Like, in “Lord of the Rings,” everyone knew that the little guy was going to throw the ring in the volcano. We never had that. At the same time, of course, my mandate was treat each one as an autonomous movie, but you can’t shift stylistically quite that much. The fun thing is if you can shift stylistically, that’s what you want to do. For better or for worse, you want to reinvent yourself every time. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.”
Speaking to SFX, ‘Thor: The Dark World’ director Alan Taylor explains why his version of Asgard is less “shiny and clean”. The man taking the baton from Kenneth Branagh for the ‘Thor’ sequel is taking a different approach to visual style for the film. “I love doing period stuff, and I was immersed in Game Of Thrones. “I was lucky that Marvel seemed to have an appetite for that this time. They’d consciously steered away from that kind of thing in the first one. Because they wanted to make sure they were distinguishing themselves from Lord Of The Rings. They didn’t want to be mistaken for that. But by the time I came along it seemed like they were ready to embrace a slightly more historical attitude towards it.”
That explains why, despite their advance technology, you’ll be seeing Thor on horseback in the new movie, “In my mind this is an ancient, ancient culture that highly reveres the horse and the culture of the horse. We still use fountain pens because we think they’re really cool – it’s not like we all use laser pens. So I think there’s a living culture that keeps these things. To me the defining thing was that Thor is a superhero amongst many superheroes, but the thing that makes him different is the thing that should be featured in the movie. And that is that he’s also a warrior prince from ancient culture.”
Warner Bros. Pictures has released this latest TV spot for Alfonso Cuarón’s (Children Of Men, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) ’Gravity.’ The sci-fi thriller, which stars George Clooney and Sandra Bullock as astronauts stranded in space after their shuttle is caught in a meteor shower, is pencilled in for a October 4th bow in 2D, 3D and IMAX.
‘Gravity’ is written by Alfonso Cuarón and his son, Jonás Cuarón. In the film, Sandra Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring. But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone–tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth…and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.
Paramount Pictures has unleashed this new poster for Jeff Tremaine’s ’Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.’ Set for a October 23rd release, the comedy blends Jackass-style pranks with a narrative involving Johnny Knoxville’s 86-year-old Irving Zisman and his 8-year-old grandson Billy (Jackson Nicoll).
86-year-old Irving Zisman is on a journey across America with the most unlikely companions, his 8 year-old Grandson Billy in “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa”. This October, the signature Jackass character Irving Zisman (Johnny Knoxville) and Billy (Jackson Nicholl) will take movie audiences along for the most insane hidden camera road trip ever captured on camera.
