Director David Fincher Talks His Approach To Directing (Video)

Director David Fincher Talks His Approach To Directing (Video)

A-List Director David Fincher Caught On Camera in This Video Interview

Director David Fincher (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), who someone said recently he would buy any of his movies on Blu-ray sight unseen, speaks a bit about his approach to filmmaking in this video clip (below). He mentions that actors and directors are at odds about their respective creative visions (something that I don’t believe is always true, but something that Fincher is known to wield strongly – his belief and vision – over a film’s direction). Fincher also talks about what his goals are as a director, what his proverbial job is and a few other small nuggets. Take a look at the video and feel free to comment if the mood strikes you. Enjoy.

New ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Deleted Scene Info Revealed

New ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Deleted Scene Info Revealed

While we have covered The Dark Knight Rises and Christopher Nolan’s epic trilogy seemingly ad nauseum here at the site, still more info continues to roll in that is worth sharing. While, the film is still cleaning up at the box office, currently on pace to shatter $400mm in domestic receipts, for the few who haven’t seen it, you may want to skip the following info. Apparently, Bane had a cool scene cut from the film ,that would have told more about his origin and injury, etc. Here, TDKR costume designer Lindy Hemming spoke to GQ about a missing scene:

“If you look at the film, unless they’ve cut it—and I’m sure they haven’t—there’s a whole early section for Tom Hardy where he’s fighting and being taunted by people,” Hemming said. “He’s got chains on him, and he’s standing on a wooden thing while people are attacking him. And in that scene, he’s wearing a much more ragged, primitive version of the mask.”

When Hemming, who hasn’t seen the final product was informed that the scene was cut, she added:

“Well that’s an awful shame, but I suppose you have to cut things, I won’t elaborate on it too much, because it isn’t in the film, but there was another section that showed you why he had the mask and where it came from.”

Also, there is a scene with Lucious Fox dialogue direct from the script that was not in the film. You can read it here.

Intriguing stuff. Thanks to THR for the heads up.

Movie News Update: Michael Fassbender to ‘Assasin’s Creed’, P.S.Hoffman to ‘Catching Fire’

Movie News Update: Michael Fassbender to ‘Assasin’s Creed’, P.S.Hoffman to ‘Catching Fire’

Movie News and Movie Rumors Update

Michael Fassbender is set to star in the film adaptation of Ubisoft’s hit video game Assassin’s Creed. Fassbender, who has starred in X-Men: First Class, Shame and Prometheus, appears to be an interesting and strong choice to play the video game star Desmond Miles. The film, if based on the video game, has a Matrix-like feel to it based on my remembrance of briefly playing the game. Miles is a real person placed in a simulated environment where he is an assassin. The game has spawned a series of sequels, all of which have sold very well and have received rave reviews. Hopefully, that is a predictor of the film being equally, if not more, exciting.

Also, Philip Seymour Hoffman, everyone’s would be Penguin, and star of Boogie Nights and Jack Goes Boating, has signed on to star in the Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire. Hoffman will play a head gamemaker, whatever that is. The first film, part of a trilogy of books, has cleaned house at the box office and the sequel I am sure will be even more anticipated as a result. The casting of Hoffman, along with the lead Jennifer Lawrence, has me intrigued. We’ll see.

Paul Greengrass (The Bourne Identity) is directing a documentary about soccer (or football if you prefer) club FC Barcelona. This sounds interesting.
