Is this a double dip or a triple dip? Maybe somewhere in between? You already own all the films in Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight" trilogy. Or maybe you waited and sprung for the "The Dark Knight" Trilogy Limited Edition (lol) Giftset last year. Well, Warner Bros. wants to pry a few more Bat-dollars out of superfans, so they are taking one more crack at the apple...

It was about this time three years ago, when barely anyone could contain their excitement for Christopher Nolan's "Inception." The film was just a couple weeks away from release and subsequently blowing minds. The puzzle box blockbuster, perhaps one of the smarter summer movies to come along in quite a few years, managed to take dreams and multiple levels of reality, and make them breathlessly linear and easy to navigate. It was a pretty magnificent thrill ride all around but the nearly perfectly constructed movie wasn't without it's minor flaws.

While Deadline and Variety scrap it out over bragging rights on the story of honcho Jeff Robinov leaving or not leaving Warner Bros. , a little nugget of trivia has leaked out that may pique the interest of Christopher Nolan fans. Granted, it's not the juiciest piece of news you'll hear all day, but it's interesting to consider nonetheless.

With his producing gig on "Man On Steel" in theaters and proving to be a great success, Christopher Nolan's attention, as well as executive-producing "Transcendence," which stars Johnny Depp and marks the directorial debut of his DoP Wally Pfister, is now shifting to his next job in the director's chair: "Interstellar."

Man of Steel
Is there a more loaded and fractious divide on a tentpole this year than Warner Bros. “Man Of Steel”? Yes, it made a ton at the box-office (though it was only the 15th biggest opening of all time, well below “Iron Man 3”), but audiences and critics have been heavily divided. One could argue that the movie has split people even more than the ending of Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises.” Movie writers have been gunning for each other's throats on Twitter, audiences are tearing each other apart in comments sections -- it’s all a bit of madness. And everyone feels like they have to weigh in. James Franco’s reviewed it, Kevin Smith has reviewed it and so has “Prometheus” writer Damon Lindelof.

Man of Steel, Snyder, Nolan, Set
If you haven't already caught the biggest June box-office opening of all time, you've no doubt witnessed the division of critics' opinions over Zack Snyder's Superman reboot, “Man of Steel.” As much as a sequel is secured, the film is certainly a mixed bag, as we discussed yesterday in our look at its strengths and weaknesses; but while one of the latter gripes focused on the ending -- spoilers, naturally -- during the climactic Metropolis fight between General Zod (Michael Shannon) and Superman (Henry Cavill), now a few perspectives closer to the material have spoken up on the bold decision.

The Best & Worst Of 'Man of Steel'

Man of Steel
If you listen to the internet -- and that’s always a precarious thing to do -- Warner Bros. “Man Of Steel” is either the worst movie of all time or the best movie of all time and of course, nothing in between (and lord there’s been some kicking and screaming by people who disagree with one another). It’s either all due Zack Snyder inability to direct or David Goyer’s (and to an extent Christopher Nolan’s) writing genius. Granted some Playlisters did not like this movie much and some of it thought it was decent-to-ok, but we’d still like to think there’s a middle ground to be found when looking at this latest Superman movie (in fact, we’re happy to say our original review does just that).

How can you tell when a studio is feeling confident? Well, with reviews for "Man Of Steel" officially landing in just a couple of hours (ours too), it looks like a follow-up is not only on deck, but coming faster than... well, you know...

Just next week, audiences will at last glimpse the entirety of “Man of Steel,” and with it another musical offering from composer Hans Zimmer. The maestro’s presence on Zack Snyder’s Superman origin story is logical, given the Christopher Nolan producer connection, but if you wanted an early confirmation as to Zimmer’s next collaboration with the “The Dark Knight” director, look no further.

Christopher Nolan Is Actually In Loose Talks About Directing The Next James Bond Film

Wow. Christopher Nolan's made no secret over the years of his love of the James Bond franchise; he named it as an influence on his first two "Batman" movies, directly paid homage to "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" in "Inception," and has often said that he's like to direct a film in the franchise at some point. But given that he's one of the few directors who could greenlight absolutely anything, we'd always wondered if it was something of a pie in the sky idea, despite his enthusiasm -- especially given that many, including Sam Mendes, talked about Nolan's influence on "Skyfall," the billion-dollar grossing last entry in the 007 series.
