Re: Oppenheimer - General Information

I’m currently reading the chapter on Dunkirk in The Nolan Variations, and thought this was an interesting excerpt where Nolan talks about deciding to cut down on dialogue for the screenplay to that film. Based on what he says about Dunkirk here, and writing a screenplay based on a true story/real ev...

Re: Hoyte van Hoytema's Cinematography

And now who can predict the logic that will dictate which scenes will be in color and which will be in black-and-white I made a post a few months ago about how I could see Nolan structuring the whole film by cutting back and forth between two narrative strands - one showing the process of developin...

For some reason, I keep picturing this movie in black and white.... which I think would be pretty cool actually, especially in IMAX. Also, it would be the first time Nolan would be using B&W since his Following/Memento days...

Re: Oppenheimer - General Information

I have a theory for how Nolan will approach this movie, so I’m sticking it here in case it ends up playing out this way. Biopics are often known to be kind of stuffy, dry reenactments of history, but given that Nolan has a made a career of putting his own stamp on different genres, I’m assuming he h...

Re: Oppenheimer - General Information

Not sure if Nolan will ever make his Howard Hughes film, but it’s interesting to me that he’s chosen Oppenheimer as a subject to direct his “biopic energy” towards instead at this point. Obviously Nolan’s been on a physics kick since Interstellar (continuing with Tenet), so his interest in Oppenheim...

Re: Oppenheimer - General Information

Since this is described as an "epic thriller" I wonder if Nolan is adapting just a tiny portion of the book American Prometheus (which is over 700 pages long), sort of like what Kushner did with Spielberg's Lincoln - focusing on just a short, but crucial time period in the man's life. Though I recal...

Re: Title Speculation Thread

Dunkirk was an obvious title choice, but the obvious choice is sometimes the best choice. Maybe I lack imagination, but I can’t really think of another title for that film that doesn’t at least include the word “Dunkirk.” Maybe “Operation Dynamo,” but that makes it sound like a fun Mission Impossibl...

I think Inception is a great movie title.
What about ‘Inter … ception’, then, for the new film?
Nolan's football movie.
