Batman 3 To Be Michael Caine’s Last As Alfred The Butler?


Chris Nolan might of confirmed that he’s directing, but Sir Michael Caine is still seemingly unsure about whether he’ll be in it, and hints that it’ll be his last movie…

Earlier today, RorMachine brought us the welcome news that Christopher Nolan will indeed helm the currently untitled third installment in his series of movies based on the Caped Crusader’s comic book adventures.

While we all know that Sir Michael Caine will more than likely be back to repirise his role as Alfred, he seems to still be unsure in a recent radio interview when asked about about the novel he’s currently writing which he’ll continue to work on, “”when I finish Batman, if I make Batman.” What’s up with the “if”? Surely Warner Bros have signed him on at this point?


Natalie Portman Now Starring in ‘Gravity’, Alfonso Cuaron’s Sci-Fi Epic


There’s nothing like some ballerina shoes and creepy thrills to reinvigorate your career. Natalie Portman stars in one little drama crafted by filmmaker Darren Aronofsky, a film most of us haven’t even seen yet, and now she’s one of Hollywood’s most in-demand actors. Earlier this month, just one week after the premiere of ‘Black Swan’ in Venice, Portman’s name began circling Alfonso Cuaron’s ‘Gravity.’

Vying for the role Angelina Jolie refused twice, Portman’s name was one of many, a list of possibilities ranging from the very sensible Rachel Weisz to the surprising ‘Gossip Girl’ Blake Lively, with Sandra Bullock being the latest rumored to be up for the role. But now Portman is in serious talks, so while the agreement is not yet concrete, her involvement is practically a sure thing — setting the stage for what could be back-to-back Oscar nominations for the actress


With ‘Let Me In’ opening, a look at the 5 most savory vampire movies

These are dangerous woods to venture into, for sure.

Choosing the five best vampire movies is sure to stir the ire of the multitude of fans of the genre, people who are proprietary about this romantic, fearsome figure. But with the opening this week of “Let Me In,” it’s as good a time as any to sink our teeth into the topic. (Sorry, the puns are just too easy.)

These are five I like best, in no particular order. You will notice that none of them includes the word “Twilight” in the title:

“Let the Right One In” (2008): We may as well begin with the Swedish thriller that inspired “Let Me In,” a film that was rightly hailed for its inventiveness, scares and soul. A lonely, bullied boy befriends the mysterious, barefoot girl who’s just moved into his shabby Stockholm apartment complex — only she warns him they can’t be friends, and she’s not really a girl anyway. She’s been 12 “for a long time,” as she puts it. Director Tomas Alfredson offers plenty of startling scenes, but the real allure comes from the suspense that builds in the stillness, and the sweetness that arises from these two misfit characters forging a relationship they both desperately need, even though they know it can’t last.
