With the fate of the worlds at stake, good and evil will collide in the ultimate battle as only Roland can defend the Tower from the Man in Black.” —IMDB

You know, I went into seeing this film knowing all the bad reviews that others had given it and I can 100% say this: they are wrong.

Hans Zimmer Confirms He’s Scoring Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar

By: Nick Venable
image Strange as it is, Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel is finally going to be released in less than two weeks, after what feels like decades of waiting. While Snyder’s take on Superman has some people in doubt, Hans Zimmer’s inspirational scoring is bound to leave audiences moved regardless of how they felt about the movie as a whole. The man has a way of elevating every project he’s involved with. Even Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides , for the most part.

The Christopher Nolan-shaped elephant in the room has been whether Zimmer would eventually reteam with his frequent collaborator – they’ve worked together on Inception and the Dark Knight trilogy – for Nolan’s upcoming giant sci-fi film Interstellar . And even though the film isn’t set to be released for another year and a half, Zimmer announced to Colliderthat he will indeed be composing the film’s score. Take a few seconds to say, “I knew it!” while you pump your fist up and down.

Though veteran composers often work with the directors throughout the film’s production, this star-studded affair is still getting set up. As such, it’s even more shocking that Zimmer also mentions that he’s already begun work on the music. “I wrote something…and I’m writing that. So, yes, we have started,” he said. Perhaps Nolan will use these early musical pieces as inspiration for his direction. It would be wild if Zimmer’s creations were as spacey as the film is. Fingers crossed that he gets a theremin involved. Interstellar willtackle the theories of Kip Thorne and will take its characters to the farthest reaches of…space and time maybe? It’s all a bit fuzzy, but it stars Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain,Michael Caine and Matthew McConaughey, and is set to open in theaters on November 7, 2014.

Anne Hathaway Reuniting With Christopher Nolan For Interstellar

By: Katey Rich

Interstellar_36860Anne Hathaway, a newly minted Oscar winner who also stole nearly every scene in last summer’s The Dark Knight Rises, is now set to reunite with Christopher Nolan for the director’s upcoming super-secret sci-fi adventure. Deadline reports that she’s about to close a deal to star in Interstellar, the project that already has Matthew McConaughey on board as the lead.

We know almost nothing else about the story, other than the vague promise that it will “depict a heroic interstellar voyage to the farthest borders of our scientific understanding.” We don’t even know what role Hathaway might play, but given that she’s only the second person to join and that she’s a major star, it’s safe to assume it’s a pretty big role. When she was walking the Oscars red carpet she said she had no plans for the rest of the year, starting a lot of rumors that she was ready to start a family with her new husband. But when a role in a big, secret Nolan movie comes along, it’s gotta be hard to say no.

Interstellar has been in development at Warner Bros. since 2007 as a script from Nolan’s brother Jonathan, and in January the elder Nolan signed on to rewrite the script, add in his own story elements, and make it his first film since the Batman trilogy concluded. Given his track record, the details are likely to stay murky for quite a while… but as casting heats up, a few more details are likely to emerge too. Stay tuned.

Nicole Kidman Flirts With Zac Efron In New Clip From The Paperboy

By: Kristy Puchko


Nicole Kidman has had some major ups and down the past few years. Following her Academy Award-nominated performance in John Cameron Mitchell’s heartbreaking indie drama Rabbit Hole, she appeared in the critically reviled Adam Sandler comedy Just Go With It then the senseless Joel Schumacher thriller Trespass, which was not only loathed by critics but made a paltry $24,000 in its domestic release. Let me say that again:Trespass made only $24,000 in US theaters.

However, there’s some deeply intriguing films on the horizon for the Aussie star, from Park Chan-wook’s creepy thriller Stoker, to the recently wrapped war drama Railway Man, and the Olivier Dahan-directed Grace Kelly biopic Grace of Monaco. But before any of these promising pictures make their way to theaters, Kidman will traipse across the big screen playing shameless white trash in Lee Daniel’s already controversial follow-up to Precious, the sultry Southern thriller The Paperboy. Will it be a hit or miss for Kidman? Take a look at the latest clip, which features her languid femme fatale flirting with Zac Efron’s titular paperboy, then sound off in comments.

Inspired by Peter Dexter’s crime novel, The Paperboy centers on the quest of two brothers, one an investigative journalist (Matthew McConaughey) the other a naïve paperboy (Efron), to seek the truth in a strange murder case, urged on by the accused’s wannabe bride (Kidman). David Oyelowo and John Cusack co-star as McConaughey’s colleague and the jailbird object of Kidman’s affections, respectively.

The Paperboy with make its US premiere October 3rd at the New York Film Festival as part of the Gala Tribute to Nicole Kidman; a limited theatrical release will follow on October 5th.
