No One, Not Even Leonardo DiCaprio Can Explain Inception

It’s amusing that a decade after it’s release Inception is still confusing people left and right as to what really happened during the ending. The movie was one big mind-trip the whole way around since it forced people to question what was real and to make up their own minds if the characters were in the dreamscape or if they were in reality since the layering of dreams was even more confusing than the most convoluted spy movie could ever hope to be. When one thinks about how the human mind works and how it will seek to defend itself

‘No Time to Die’: Hans Zimmer Brings the Smiths’ Johnny Marr Aboard Bond 25 Score
The soundtrack for director Cary Fukunaga’s upcoming James Bond film “No Time to Die” is shaping up to be quite the mind meld. Earlier this week, it was announced that vocal-fried pop queen of doom du jour Billie Eilish has written and will perform the film’s theme song — and, at 18, she’s the youngest artist ever to do so. Now, Johnny Marr will be joining composer Hans Zimmer to write the score, as revealed today by NME.

The lead guitarist behind The Smiths, everybody’s favorite gloomy English rock band of the 1980s, will, like Academy Award-winning composer Zimmer, be making his James Bond debut here. It’s the 25th film in the franchise, and will be the last one to star Daniel Craig in the role of 007. The last Bond score, for “Spectre,” was penned by Thomas Newman, an Academy Award nominee this year for “1917,” and

Johnny Marr Teams Up With Hans Zimmer for James Bond ‘No Time to Die’ Score
Johnny Marr will join Hans Zimmer to compose the new score for the next James Bond film, No Time to Die, NME reports.

“Part of the legacy of the Bond films is iconic music, so I’m very happy to be bringing my guitar to No Time To Die,” Marr said.

Marr joins the project just one week after Zimmer was brought on to replace Dan Romer, who reportedly left No Time to Die over creative differences. While Zimmer has had one of the most illustrious careers in film composition,

Bong Joon-ho Reacts To ‘Parasite’s Historic Oscar Noms, Reveals Details Of HBO TV Adaptation With Adam McKay
Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite continued its storybook trajectory today, becoming the first Korean film nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars, and picking up additional nods for Bong for Best Director, International Film and Original Screenplay with Jin Won Han, as well as craft nods for Editing and Production Design. It is only the sixth movie in Oscar history to get both the Picture and International Film nods, and the 11th foreign language film nominated for Best Picture.

Director Bong this morning struggled to reconcile with the extraordinary reaction since the movie won the Palme d’Or after its Cannes Film Festival premiere. “I feel it’s like Inception,” he joked through his translator and filmmaker Sharon Choi, who has followed him throughout the season. “Soon I’m going to wake up and realize this was all a dream, I’m still in the middle of Parasite and all the equipment is malfunctioning.

Leonardo DiCaprio Finds ‘Inception’ Just As Confusing As The Rest Of Us

Over the past few years, critics have written at length about our need to “solve” movies. From blockbuster features to auteurist passion projects, audiences are increasingly treating films and franchises as puzzles to unlock. This has resulted in outcries for more ambiguity. Who cares if the top falls over at the end of Christopher Nolan‘s “Inception“? The point is not that there is a right answer – the point is that we do not know.

Christopher Nolan's Tenet Is Taking a Big Chance with an Insanely Huge Budget

Christopher Nolan's Tenet Is Taking a Big Chance with an Insanely Huge Budget
They say you've got to spend money to make money. In the case of Christopher Nolan's new movie Tenet, at least the first half of that statement is quite true. It's been revealed that Warner Bros. is spending a whole lot of money on the latest from Nolan, to the tune of more than $200 million. That is quite a big price tag for an original movie, even if it is coming from one of the most reliable and beloved modern filmmakers around.

According to a new report, Tenet's budget is said to be in the $205 million range. To offer some perspective on that figure, The Dark Knight grossed just over $1 billion at the global box office, working from a budget of $185 million. But that movie had Batman in it. Tenet, by all accounts, is a totally original movie that Christopher Nolan wrote himself. There has been some speculation

With a Budget Over $200 Million, Nolan Is Planning Something Massive With ‘Tenet’

With a Budget Over $200 Million, Nolan Is Planning Something Massive With ‘Tenet’
Christopher Nolan movies are known for being big, and it appears Christopher Nolan movies won’t get much bigger than his upcoming espionage epic “Tenet.” Reports circulated last summer that Warner Bros. was producing “Tenet” on a humongous $225 million budget. Variety and Collider reported this week the “Tenet” budget is $205 million, a bit lower than initial estimates but still massive and the most money Nolan has ever gotten to work with on an original concept.

Nolan’s most expensive outing to date is “The Dark Knight Rises,” which was previously the only Nolan feature to receive a production budget over the $200 million mark. Nolan’s other projects like “The Dark Knight,” “Inception,” and “Interstellar” had budgets in the $150-$180 million range. “Dunkirk” was made in the mid-to-low $100 million range. Most studios would be hesitant to give such a huge budget to an original title, but Nolan has rightfully earned the good will of Warner Bros.

No Time to Die Picks up Hans Zimmer as Composer

David Crow Jan 8, 2020

Hans Zimmer will be rushing to finish the No Time to Die score after stepping in as a last minute replacement on the James Bond epic.

No Time to Die will be the end of an era for the Bond franchise. After 14 years, Daniel Craig is retiring from the James Bond 007 role, and is the first actor to do so on his own terms since Sean Connery bowed out for good in 1971. Nevertheless, it’ll also be a first in other regards… including for legendary composer Hans Zimmer. In surprising genre movie news, the Oscar winning composer has confirmed No Time to Die will be his first Bond movie.

The news comes out of Variety, which reports Zimmer has been tapped as a last minute replacement for composer Dan Romer, who left the project last month due to “creative differences.” The trade further speculates that Zimmer’s

Leonardo DiCaprio Reflects on Original Plan to Shoot ‘The Revenant’ in One Take

Leonardo DiCaprio Reflects on Original Plan to Shoot ‘The Revenant’ in One Take
The making of Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s 2015 survival drama “The Revenant” was an infamous nightmare, but it could have been even more challenging had the filmmaker gone through with his original plan to stage the entire movie as one take. The decision would have given Iñárritu his second consecutive one-take movie after “Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance).” Of course “Birdman” is not an actual one-take but a series of long takes stitched together in editing to appear as a single shot. Regardless, planning for a one-take effect would have made the already-hectic “Revenant” shoot even more grueling. Leonardo DiCaprio revealed Iñárritu’s plan during a recent appearance on Marc Maron’s “Wtf” podcast.

“There was no way to foresee what he was going to do out there on ‘The Revenant,'” DiCaprio said of Iñárritu’s vision. “The script was one thing. It was a linear story of

‘Filmmaker Mode’ to Eliminate Motion Smoothing in 2020, Backed by Nolan and the DGA

‘Filmmaker Mode’ to Eliminate Motion Smoothing in 2020, Backed by Nolan and the DGA
Hollywood’s fight against motion smoothing got a major boost this week at CES in Las Vegas, where the Uhd Alliance unveiled new information about the new Filmmaker Mode television setting. News broke last August that the UHDA had been working with major directors such as Christopher Nolan, Paul Thomas Anderson, Patty Jenkins, Ryan Coogler, Martin Scorsese, and Rian Johnson to introduce a new TV setting that would “preserve the cinematic representation of images as the filmmakers intended when it comes to color, contrast, aspect ratio, and frame rates.” Many of these directors have been working with the Uhda since September 2018 to find a solution that combats motion smoothing.

The Uhda confirmed at CES that Samsung, Philips/Tp Vision, and Kaleidescape are joining the previously-announced LG, Panasonic, and Vizio in providing television products in 2020 that offer the Filmmaker Mode setting. LG will include Filmmaker Mode in all of its new

James Bond 25 Gets Hans Zimmer to Score No Time to Die Soundtrack

  • MovieWeb
There's been something of a musical shake-up in the world of James Bond. Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer has been brought in at the eleventh hour to compose the score for No Time to Die, which will serve as Daniel Craig's final entry in the long-running franchise. Originally, Dan Romer was supposed to handle the soundtrack, but he and the producers ran into "creative differences," which led to the search for a new composer. Now, Zimmer will get to put his spin on 007.

According to a new report, Hans Zimmer is expected to already be working on the movie. Dan Romer is said to have been dismissed by Eon Productions last month. Romer previously worked with director Cary Fukunaga on Beasts of No Nation, as well as his Netflix series Maniac, which is why he was brought on board in the first place. It's unclear precisely how far Romer had gotten into the process,

Leonardo DiCaprio Says He Still Doesn’t Understand Inception

Man, 2010 was a banner year for cinema, eh? We had Toy Story 3 which made me cry like a baby as I myself went off to college. We had The Social Network showing us that those seeking world domination can indeed succeed and become billionaires. And we also had fan favorite Inception, the dream-within-a-dream-within-a-dream special effects powerhouse.

Outside of those Batman films, Inception is probably Christopher Nolan’s most well-known work and the movie itself has had numerous theories thrown about to make sense of the narrative. Apparently, though, its leading star never read any of those.

Parlaying his new Hollywood clout after appearing in Joker, somehow Marc Maron got both Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio to sit down and chat on his (stupidly overrated) podcast, Wtf with Marc Maron. He spoke to Brad about some Ad Astra stuff and if the actor understood what was going on at a certain point in the film,

Listen: Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio’s Candid One-Hour Talk with Marc Maron

When you’re starring in a film directed by Quentin Tarantino, it means the press tour is usually taken over by the verbose director himself as he chats about every aspect of production, film history, and no shortage of other topics. So, it’s with great pleasure the two stars of his latest film, Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, had the chance to sit down for a candid one-hour interview with Marc Maron.

With the first portion largely focused on their early careers of breaking into the business, they also talked about life as globally-recognized celebrities, producing stellar films, working with Tarantino, a hilarious story about Fight Club, and why they can’t explain the plot mechanics of Ad Astra nor Inception.

In related news, we’ll likely be seeing an extended, four-hour version of Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood sooner than we thought. Speaking to Collider at a recent awards event,

‘No Time to Die’: Hans Zimmer Takes Over as Composer on Bond Movie (Exclusive)

‘No Time to Die’: Hans Zimmer Takes Over as Composer on Bond Movie (Exclusive)
Hans Zimmer is James Bond’s new composer, multiple sources tell Variety.

The composer of “Gladiator,” “Inception” and “The Da Vinci Code” is already believed to be working on “No Time to Die,” the 25th film in the 007 franchise starring Daniel Craig. He replaces Dan Romer, the American composer who had previously been announced as scoring the film.

“Creative differences” are said to have been the reason for Romer’s dismissal last month by Eon Productions, the Broccoli family enterprise that has made all of the Bond films dating back to “Dr. No,” the first 007 adventure in 1962.

A spokesperson for MGM, Bond’s studio, had no comment on the matter. A spokesperson for Eon did not immediately return Variety‘s request for comment.

Rumors have been swirling for weeks about the status of music for the film, now in post-production in London. Director Cary Fukunaga brought Romer into the project last summer,

Inception Story Still Confuses Leonardo DiCaprio a Decade Later
Leonardo DiCaprio admits that he has no idea what happened in Inception. The critically acclaimed Christopher Nolan movie is celebrating its tenth anniversary this summer and viewers, along with DiCaprio, are still trying to figure it out. DiCaprio and his Once Upon a Time in Hollywood co-star Brad Pitt stopped by for a chat with Marc Maron, where they discussed working with Quentin Tarantino and working on confusing movies.

During the interview, Marc Maron started to ask Brad Pitt about a certain scene in James Gray's Ad Astra. The podcast host was trying to wrap his head around an idea to which Pitt replied, "I'm not going to explain it to you... I can't explain it either." His answer was met with laughter from all three men and got Leonardo DiCaprio thinking about his own experience with confusing movies. He had this to say about Inception.

The 7 Best Movies New to Netflix in January 2020

The 7 Best Movies New to Netflix in January 2020
Netflix pulled out all the stops towards the end of 2019, as the company launched the most robust slate of awards season titles in its brief history. Of course, the Oscar gold rush doesn’t leave the streamer or any of its competitors with much to offer at the start of the new year, and so Netflix’s January is extremely light on original fare.

To make up for it, the company is offering a grab bag of irrefutable favorites, many of which feed into current awards campaigns in one way or another. Anyone still high off the “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” fumes will be happy to find “Catch Me if You Can” and “Kill Bill” back on the platform, while “Joker” fans can parse “The Master” for shades of Arthur Fleck. Other gems, like Hikari’s “37 Seconds” and Max Joseph’s criminally dismissed “We Are Your Friends” are

Leonardo DiCaprio Still Baffled by ‘Inception’ 10 Years Later: ‘What Happened? No Idea’

Leonardo DiCaprio Still Baffled by ‘Inception’ 10 Years Later: ‘What Happened? No Idea’
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” co-stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt recently appeared on Marc Maron’s “Wtf” podcast and admitted to not entirely understanding their acclaimed films “Inception” and “Ad Astra,” respectively. Maron asked Pitt about a point of confusion in James Gray’s “Ad Astra” script, mainly how a spaceship stranded near Neptune was able to send energy surges strong enough to impact the Earth. Maron said he did not understand this part of the film, to which Pitt replied, “I’m not going to explain it to you. … I can’t explain it either.” Pitt’s reveal inspired DiCaprio to get honest about Nolan’s 2010 science-fiction epic.

“That’s like ‘Inception’ for me. What happened? I have no idea,” DiCaprio said as the three men laughed. “You’re just focused on your character, man. I do get involved [with the story], but when it came to Christopher Nolan and
