A diary created by the late actor Heath Ledger is part of a new German documentary that details the Academy Award winner’s life, Time reports
It has been said when the late Heath Ledger got into roles he really got into them. And when he portrayed Batman’s arch-villain The Joker in The Dark Knight, for which he won a posthumous Oscar for, Ledger went even deeper, including keeping a “Joker diary.”
Premium Rush aside, Joseph Gordon-Levitt appears in two of the best-rated action films of 2012, The Dark Knight Rises and Looper, and also stars in the likely Oscar-contending drama Lincoln due out in November. In an interview with New York magazine, Gordon-Levitt talks about the makeup he had to wear to portray a younger version of Bruce Willis in Looper and what inspired him to direct his first film, which is due out next year.
The Dark Knight’s Christian Bale: “It was very bittersweet when I took off the cowl for last time, because it’s meant so much to me personally to play this character”
It’s hard to accept that The Dark Knight Rises will likely be the last time we’ll see Christian Bale as Batman (though as Sean Connery would say, “Never say never”). On that note, Bale took the time to express his thoughts on the last chapter of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy and the series as a whole, as well as speaking about his feelings about leaving the character behind after three films.
Tom Hardy: “There is nothing ambiguous about Bane. He is clearly a villain…just a horrible piece of work”
Bane might not rank among the “classic” Batman villains (the hulking back-breaker was introduced in the comics in 1993), but the character is a perfect fit for the Batman world created by Christopher Nolan in his Dark Knight trilogy. To play the villain in The Dark Knight Rises, Nolan turned to Tom Hardy, who appeared in Nolan’s previous film, Inception.
Anne Hathaway certainly has faced some challenges playing the iconic Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s latest The Dark Knight Rises.
At last, it’s here: the long-awaited follow-up to 2008’s The Dark Knight, generally considered the best comic book superhero movie ever made (and until this year’s The Avengers, the highest-grossing). The Dark Knight Rises is also director Christopher Nolan’s farewell to the Batman franchise, and the nearly three-hour film was perhaps the most challenging of his career.
Matthew Modine has worked with top-tier directors Stanley Kubrick, Jonathan Demme, Oliver Stone, and Robert Altman, so when he praises Christopher Nolan (he appears in Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises) on his filmmaking in a new interview, it’s coming from an actor who knows what it takes to be one of all-time great directors.
