Christopher Nolan in the spotlight with ‘Inception’ and return to Gotham

June 10, 2010 | 6:55 p.m.

On Saturday at the Hero Complex Film Festival, we’ll hear Christopher Nolan discuss his filmmaking accomplishments between our screenings of the underrated 2002 thriller Insomnia and billion-dollar blockbuster The Dark Knight,” but don’t think that the discussion won’t be forward-looking as well — the future looks fascinating for this 39-year-old auteur, and I plan to ask him about the third Batman film, which starts shooting in March, and his plans to produce a Superman revival with his partner and wife, Emma Thomas.

    I'll be there this weekend, and I'm excited either, but let's be honest. He's going to screen Inception instead of The Dark Knight, right? Big surprise? Come one Geoff, level with us.

  2. Andrew says:

    so is this even news…you're reporting on what you're going to be doing? LAT – dislike.

  3. Inception: Pass this one by. Another movie presented with the disgusting blue tint effect. (Hey, Chris, fyi, it's been done)

    It's a blog entry, Andrew, not a news story. He can talk about his own participation.
    And I can't wait to be there tomorrow!

  5. Joey boy says:

    Yeah, kind of like TDK and Memento (also directed by Nolan) with the blue tint effect- if you're judging Nolan's films make it relevant. Thanks.

  6. Joey boy says:

    Sure, it will have a blue tint effect like TDK and Memento- both great films. What's your point?

  7. TINTi-alating says:

    sorry guys. thats all that matters in a film. the tint. you should know this by now. (dang it! the sarcastic font didn't work)

  8. Marcelo says:

    Shame such an awesome director and all people care about is when he's doing the next batman.. shame.. I'll be there.
