Director Zhang Yimou, the man behind China’s opening ceremonies at the 2008 Olympic Games and Hero starring Jet Li, cast Bale after he was impressed with the actor’s knowledge of the so-called “Rape of Nanjing.”
If that’s not enough, you also get to see Peter Travers pantomime a BJ twenty seconds into the clip. Way to use both hands, Pete.
Director Spike Jonze really seriously for reals wants you to see his friend David O. Russell’s The Fighter. He saw it and loved it, and doesn’t think that the original studio trailer does it justice.
The Fighter is the story of how boxer Irish Mickey Ward overcame his family problems to be a champion. The drama could have started all over again for the filmmakers when they got the Ward family involved with the story.
We didn’t expect big Batman news from Christian Bale while he’s promoting his new drama, The Fighter. He doesn’t shoot until next year, but I thought at least I could get his reaction to the title Christopher Nolan announced. Bale doesn’t even believe it’s going to be called The Dark Knight Rises.
We can either call this a confirmation or the inane ramblings of a British madman, but Michael Caine has told Empire that The Dark Knight Rises will beginning shooting in May 2011.
Director: David O. Russell Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Melissa Leo, Jack McGee Synopsis: A look at the early years of boxer “Irish” Micky Ward and his brother…
The secret screening at AFI Film Festival was the long awaited boxing drama The Fighter. Mark Wahlberg waited four years to make this movie and it was a lot for me to take. I mean, I can handle death and despair. That’s a good time at the movies. You give me an abusive family and that’s just hopeless.
Paramount aired a new trailer for David O. Russell’s The Fighter last night during the season finale of”Mad Men.” It’s for all dem high brow smarts peoples out there who…
Win by Technical Derp-out. The trailer has dropped for David O. Russell‘s The Fighter starring Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, Amy Adams. Holy crap does this movie look like Oscar bait,…
Mel Gibson vs. Christian Bale – Watch more Funny VideosThe audio mashup you've all been waiting for is finally here. The second we all heard Mel Gibson go apesh*t on his girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, Christian Bale popped up in the back of our minds ripping the DP on Terminator Salvation a new asshole. Neither you nor I wanted to put them together in one phone conversation because that involves time and effort, so we waited a few days until someone else did it. We should get these two actors in one sealed-off room and they can really battle it out. Place your bets on who's going to end up in a rose garden. Probably Oksana since both Bale and Gibson have no qualms with hitting women. (FilmDrunk)
John Hillcoat (The Road, The Proposition) is attached to direct The Revenant with Christian Bale (The Dark Knight, How to Berate a Cinematographer) in talks to star. Bale's character would be a 19th century frontiersman who is left to die by his friends after being mauled by a bear, and eventually sets out to take his revenge on them. Um, is it just me, or shouldn't he be taking his revenge out on the bear and its family? Sorry your friends didn't fight off a bear for you, dude. Chances are they quickly assessed the situation and came to the the conclusion that IT'S A BEAR. Now you're going to make them pay for using their God-given natural instincts? Whatever, this concept had me at "mauled by bear." (BloodyDisgusting)
You see that, Batman? That's a release date for your next film. How does July 20, 2012 sound? (Warner Bros. forcefully shakes his head yes)Batman 3 hasn't even gone into production yet, as Christopher Nolan just completed Inception and wants to close his eyes for a minute, but little bro Jonathan Nolan is diligently working away on the script based off a story by himself and David Goyer. Since the film is going to be in 3D I hope they add a lot of "Bats fly at the screen!" in the action. You can never get enough bats flying at the screen. It's like they're gonna get caught in your hair! Eeeeeeee! (Deadline)
Production start on this film slipped right past my radar. Kristen Bell and Christian Bale seem like perfect casting in this taut thriller. No release date yet, but it just moved to the top of my "must see" list.

Halloween is just around the corner, as if you didn't know and… Ah screw it. We don't need to justify this post. I mean, look at them! Gah! Adorable!
Not since the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' "Coming Out of Their Shells" Tour has Pizza Hut delivered such a powerhouse promotional tie in. Today, on the 'Hut's website, those bros at Warners posted a new 5-minute Terminator Salvation featurette that shows you the anatomy of a scene in which Kyle Reese (Anton Yelchin) and Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington) blow the ever loving crap out of a combo 7-Eleven/Gas Station (and probably all the Terminator Salvation promotional Slurpee crazy straws within it). The best part is the interview with Special Effects Supervisor Michael Meinardus, who's supporting himself on crutches. The dude looks like he injured himself jumping off his Harley to punch a T-800 in its exo-skull. Check out the insightful and ass-kicking sequence – brought to you by Pizza Hut – after the jump.

Recently, IESB.Net posted 10 – count 'em – 10 new clips from McG's Terminator Salvation. Not a ton of spoilers, but a little extra context into a lot of stuff we've seen in the trailers already. 'Nuff said. Watch with me if you want to live. #1 – "What are you doing here?"
