Christian Bale talks the origins of his bat-voice; reveals his wife's hilarious reaction

Perhaps one of the most controversial things about Christopher Nolan 's THE DARK KNIGHT trilogy was actor Christian Bale 's voice, which was a low, gravelly growl that has become a bit of a parody since the trilogy closed its doors after THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Bale, who we reported commenting on "batkid" and giving his advice for Ben Affleck as the caped crusader...

Cool Videos: The Dark Knight legacy fan film with Red Hood and Nightwing!

The conclusion of Christopher Nolan's THE DARK KNIGHT trilogy may have meant to wrap things up in a neat little bow, but with the ambitious final moments of the the last film, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, opened the doors for a lot of possibility, most notably with Joseph Gordon-Levitt's John Blake/Robin. With that, some filmmaking fans have taken the reins to explore those possibilities...

Cool Videos: Ashton Kutcher's uplifting and inspirational speech from the Teen Choice Awards

I was going to start by talking about how Ashton Kutcher tends to get slapped around on movie sites (although he has earned it at times), but really I want to focus on the positive here and on this awesome speech he gave at the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday. Kutcher was there to accept the Ultimate Choice Award and he delivered a powerful and motivational speech to the teen audience....

Review: Jobs

PLOT: The story of Steve Jobs, the difficult genius who founded Apple, had it taken away from him, then won it back. REVIEW: JOBS is a moderately engaging but unenlightening biopic done in broad strokes; a by-the-numbers look at a man who was anything but. Sometimes it feels as if the film is reaching for THE SOCIAL NETWORK’s heights of stylishly dramatizing a technological...

New "American legend" trailer for Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher

Another new trailer for the Steve Jobs biopic JOBS has gone online, touting the tagline of an "American Legend," which I don't disagree with, especially since I'm typing this on a Mac and carry an iPhone everywhere I go. I'd say he's had a profound influence on many of us. However, translating that on film can be a tricky task, especially with Ashton Kutcher...

First trailer for Steve Jobs biopic Jobs starring Ashton Kutcher and Josh Gad plugs in

The first trailer for the Steve Jobs biopic, JOBS, has arrived. Following the life of the innovative mastermind behind the exact computer I'm typing on at this very moment, amongst other Apple products that now serve as the lifeblood of the existence of millions (myself included), the film stars Ashton Kutcher as JOBS with Josh Gad playing fellow innovator Steve Wozniak, with a solid...

Comics: Batman loses another Robin as writer Grant Morrison closes his run on the Bat-books at DC

For those keeping up with the current Bat-family of books, which just wrapped an epic Joker-themed storyline called "Death of the Family," the biggest shake up to happen since Bruce Wayne's death a few years back during Final Crisis is upon us.  It may not involve Bruce Wayne, but it certainly affects his offsprint. Damian Wayne, the current Robin, is a precocious, violent, and...

Cool Videos: Christian Bale calls 8-year-old boy with Leukemia to talk Batman

I toiled with posting this, but it's already made the rounds in many venues, and ultimately I felt if it was something I was happy to see, then it would likely be the same for you.  Christian Bale , who has shown both a heated temper and sympathetic resolve, has once again proven his integrity, heart, and good nature by chatting on the phone with an 8-year-old boy named Zach, who is...

Christopher Nolan shares his Top 10 Criterion movies

Love him or hate him, Christopher Nolan is a skilled director. Whether you think he is adept at what he does story wise is one thing, but you cannot argue the man has a flair for visuals. He has been inducted into the rarified company of contemporary directors whose work has been released via a Criterion Blu-ray. His first film, FOLLOWING, received that honor. With Criterion...

Review: Jobs (Sundance 2013)

PLOT: The life and career of Steve Jobs ( Ashton Kutcher )- founder of Apple Computers, from his early days with Steve Wozniak ( Josh Gad ), through his battles with Apple CEO John Sculley ( Matthew Modine ) in the eighties, to his eventual return to Apple and introduction of the iPod. REVIEW: The life of Steve Jobs is a natural for the big screen treatment. How...

Ashton Kutcher's biopic, jOBS, gets a release date and a clip

Since he was announced as the star of JOBS, I was laughing at the casting of Ashton Kutcher as the revered Apple founder. Even though the images of Kutcher in character were strikingly similar to his real life counterpart, I still could not get past the fact this was the guy from DUDE, WHERE'S MY CAR?. Now that the film has premiered at Sundance and has picked up distribution...
