A couple of weeks ago we learned that the script for the upcoming Justice League movie had been totally trashed and needed to be rewritten from the ground up. With early press on the Man of Steel looking super positive, the latest rumor out of H’wood totally changes what Warner Bros. could be bringing to the table in 2015.
We’ve intentionally not talked about the theater shootings in Aurora, Colorado for a number of reason, but mainly because there has been nothing positive to come from the “news” and speculation/pundits outlets to provide anything of real meaning. However, when someone does something positive, not for their own image, but to make those suffering feel better, it does deserve some attention.
That’s why we are giving Christian Bale the Major Spoilers Hero Award. Mr. Bale took it upon himself to visit the hospital where survivors of the shooting are recovering. According to reports, the actor spent time with each of the patients, and also spent time with those that were the first responders to the crime scene. According to Warner Bros., “Mr. Bale is there as himself, not representing Warner Brothers.”
Regardless of what you think of the actor or the movie, it is Christian Bale’s actions that speak volumes. This is yet another example of someone who didn’t have to do anything, but did it for the right reason.
Sit down and watch the latest trailer for the Dark Knight Rises, that puts a lot of attention on Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s character.
I’m still putting money that there will be another Dark Knight that rises by the end of the movie.
Many of you have already picked up on the subtle, or maybe not so subtle wording in the latest issue of Empire Magazine where David Goyer hints that Batman may die in The Dark Knight Rises.
“The final scene of The Dark Knight Rises is exactly that scene we talked about then,” says Goyer, speaking to Empire from his LA office almost four years later. “It remained completely unchanged. We both knew in our hearts that we were onto something special. I have to tell you, having finally seen everything strung together a little while ago and seeing that scene, I got a complete lump in my throat.”
The MS-QotD wants you to step up with an answer: Is this carefully worded statement simply stunt marketing to get audiences into theaters on opening weekend, or is there someone waiting in the wings to rise when the Dark Knight falls?
Warner Bros. is really amping up the promotions for The Dark Knight Rises, the final film in the Christopher Nolan trilogy, as the studio released another commercial spot for the movie.
There’s a brand new poster for The Dark Knight Rises, and it doesn’t feature the monotone blue/gray scene we’ve seen before.
With production going hot and heavy in Pittsburgh, and fans swarming all over the place, it didn’t take long for someone to post via Twitter a brand new vehicle spotted in the wild.
If only this were a real movie.
Unfortunately, the new trailer for the upcoming Terminator Salvation trailer only features Christian Bale yelling at cyborgs and robots.
Guess the company really doesn’t want to work with Bale on any future projects. Still funny though.
In January, IDW Publishing debuts the comic book prequel to the next Terminator movie, Terminator: Salvation.Â The movie is the fourth installment in the big screen contingent of the action series, starring Christian Bale as John Connor and directed by McG.Â The movie opens in May 2009.
We’ve only seen previews of the upcoming Terminator Salvation flick, and while it looks good, the fifth film is already in the works.
When Anderson and Kubicek acquired the rights the lucrative “Terminator” franchise last year from previous owners C2, the former ad exec and banker envisaged the re-booted series as a trilogy. Christian Bale has signed on in the role of John Connor for all three roles. Newest pic is tentatively skedded for a 2011 release.
The duo had originally planned to wait until the release of “Terminator Salvation” next summer before deciding on whether to proceed with the next chapter, but the positive studio, fan and media reaction to footage from the current pic has encouraged them to move forward ahead of schedule.
The announcement was made at the Dubai International Film Festival, and it was hinted the movie migh take place in the Middle East.
It’s interesting that the exec producers are giving the go ahead to a movie based on positive response to trailers and such.Â I’ve seen some really awesome trailers in my day, but when the film is released it stinks to high heaven. Considering Bale has signed for all three movies, it’s a pretty good sign the film is actually good.
