Warner Bros. Pictures recently announced that the self-contained world of Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight’ trilogy will be left behind, and Zack Snyder’s Superman movie, ‘Man of Steel,’ will begin to open up a DC Movie Universe. Today Christian Bale has reiterated to EW that he won’t be playing Bruce Wayne/Batman in the upcoming ‘Justice League’ movie. “We were incredibly fortunate to get to make three [Batman films]. That’s enough. Let’s not get greedy,” says Bale. “Chris [Nolan] always said he wanted to make it one film at a time. And we ended up sitting there looking at each other, saying ‘We’re about to make the third.’ We never really knew if we were going to get to be there, but if that was how it was going to be, this was where it should end as well.”
The Oscar-winning actor says he hasn’t even been involved in official talks about a ‘Justice League’ movie. ”I have no information, no knowledge about anything. I’ve literally not had a conversation with a living soul. I understand that they may be making a Justice League movie, that’s it.” But he says he’s not sad to pass Batman’s cowl into new hands: “It’s a torch that should be handed from one actor to another. So I enjoy looking forward to what somebody else will come up with.”

Closely following the posters centering on Gipsy Danger and Otachi, Legendary Pictures has debuted two more posters for Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming action-adventure movie, ‘Pacific Rim.’ Set for a July 12th 2D and 3D release, ’Pacific Rim’ is set in 2025, the 12th year of a war against giant malevolent alien creatures who reside in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. To combat its annihilation, the planet must band together and use highly advanced weapons technology to eradicate the growing threat. Undoubtedly one of my most anticipated movies of 2013, ‘Pacific Rim’ boasts a stellar cast of Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, Rob Kazinsky, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman and Max Martini.

Excellent New TV Spot For Neill Blomkamp’s ‘Elysium’ – Starring Matt Damon, Jodie Foster & Sharlto Copley
TriStar Pictures has let out the hatch new TV spot for Neill Blomkamp’s sci-fi thriller, ‘Elysium.’ As a huge fan of Blomkamp’s ‘District 9’ – that film had style and substance in abundance – ‘Elysium’ is without a doubt one of my most anticipated of 2013. Further adding to my excitement is the top-notch cast the filmmaker assembled for the film in Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Wagner Moura, Sharlto Copley, William Fichtner, Alice Braga, and Diego Luna. Look out for ‘Elysium’ on August 9th in the US and September 20th in the UK.

That doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky Max (Matt Damon) is backed into a corner, he agrees to take on a daunting mission that if successful will not only save his life, but could bring equality to these polarized worlds.
