Christopher Nolan Is In Talks to Direct a Movie About Space Exploration, Time Travel. And It’s Not Even My Birthday!
DO WANTLooks like Christopher Nolan might have another movie to be secretive at us about. According to The Hollywood Reporter he's in talks to produce and direct Interstellar, a sci-fi flick involving "time travel and alternate dimensions" in which "a group of explorers travel through a wormhole."

Dammit Jim!I can imagine nothing instills fear in actors quite like losing the script to a top-secret Hollywood blockbuster. Not to mention an upcoming Batman blockbuster. But that's exactly what happened recently to actor Gary Oldman, who plays Comissioner Jim Gordon in the recent films.
Things We Saw TodaySo, Darth Vader was cruising around on his vespa one sunny afternoon, when all of a sudden, a bus pulled up. Does the Sith Lord: a) Ask the bus driver for directions before strangling him with the Force, b) Board the bus and use the Force to propel the vespa into a safe parking spot, or c) Continue calmly to the nearest Red Mango? Choose your own adventure, everyone! (via Blastr)
Be prepared, everything about this parody is perfect. I love The Lion King and I love Batman but I never imagined I'd see them together and certainly not like this. I don't even know how or why YouTube user MovieMaestroTen (Brad Hansen) thought combine the two but we are so, so glad he did. I'm not ashamed to say Michael Caine doing the voice of Zazu almost made me lose it. Watch and be amazed. (via The Awesomer)
Officially OfficialGroovy actor of the moment Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who co-starred in Christopher Nolan's Inception, will reunite with the director for the third installment of Nolan's Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises. This announcement comes after six weeks of negotiations, but there is no official word on who Gordon-Levitt will be playing. Nolan already ruled out the Riddler, but other names being thrown around are Deadshot and Alberto Falcone, son of crime boss Carmine Falcone, who was introduced in Batman Begins. Gordon-Levitt will also be reunited with Inception costars Tom Hardy and Michael Caine. Update: Bleeding Cool appears to be confirming that Gordon-Levitt is playing Alberto Falcone.

Michael Caine is brilliant, and he is also a little perturbed that his voice keeps showing up in audio birthday cards and GPS devices (or sat-navs, as they're called across the pond) without his knowledge. He's also one of the coolest human beings alive if he can get on TV and do an impression of himself, doing voices for birthday cards and GPS devices. (via BuzzFeed)

I trust Christopher Nolan as a director, and with a cast that includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Ellen Page, Cillian Murphy, and Michael Caine, who could say no to Inception? The problem is that immediately after watching the trailer, I was overcome with two warring emotions. 1) An interest in the film. 2) The knowledge that I had been tricked into being interested in the film, because I still had no idea what it was about.
Thankfully, Geoff Boucher at The LA Times has revealed just enough about the movie's plot to make the trailer more coherent and make me feel a little less like a victim of a Jedi mind trick.
