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.

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.

Man Of Steel
It’s a new day, so you know what that means: a “Man Of Steel” update. From the very beginning we’ve heard how much more grounded and serious Zack Snyder’s take on the iconic character would be -- he recently called it his “most realistic” film -- and while many chalked it up to Christopher Nolan’s influence (he's an executive producer on the movie and his name gets plenty of play in the trailers), Superman himself sets the record straight.

Well, this is hardly news for anyone who is keeping up with their Christopher Nolan news, because it was teased last summer. "He's got to go on, he's got some other idea, and I'm in it!" Michael Caine said, when asked about Nolan's next film during press rounds for "The Dark Knight Rises." "I've been in everything he's done since he's been in Hollywood. We're each others' good luck charms." Well, that rabbit's foot will back on the set.

Having already notched her belt with Terrence Malick, Kathryn Bigelow, John Hillcoat and Ralph Fiennes (among others) and lining up gigs this year with Liv Ullman ("Miss Julie") and Guillermo Del Toro ("Crimson Peak"), it's safe to say that Jessica Chastain has her pick of the crop. And now she's adding another big time filmmaker on to her enviable CV.

The careers of Christopher Nolan and Wally Pfister have been forever linked, with the pair first meeting in Park City as filmmakers (Pfister had lensed a movie playing Sundance, Nolan was at Slamdance with "Following") and they've been inseparable ever since. Pfister has lensed every Nolan flick to date, but now that he's embarking on his down directorial career with "Transcendence," someone else will have to get behind the camera for the Batman moviemaker and it appears he's found his man.

Man Of Steel trailer
Are Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer the best thing to ever happen to filmmaker Zack Snyder? An amazing visual stylist that deserves full credit there, Snyder's films like "Watchmen" and "300" look fantastic, but... how do we put it? They're often lacking real characters, heart and soul (or in the case of "Sucker Punch" just look like a bad video game meets a music video with little substance). But last night's "Man Of Steel" trailer looks as though Snyder may have turned a corner, perhaps thanks to the script, tones and world set up by Nolan and Goyer. Yes, it's only a trailer, but as far as mainstream tentpoles go, it's certainly the most impressive one in recent memory (perhaps since "Prometheus" last year, and yes, we realize that one didn't turn out the way we hoped).

Christopher Nolan & Michael Bay Shooting IMAX For 'Interstellar' & 'Transformers 4'

While there seems to be some audience fatigue for 3D -- largely thanks to post-conversions that don't do the format justice or justify the added expense -- IMAX is the one theatrical extra most agree still provides a special experience. And particularly for films that natively use the format -- a practice slowly picking up steam -- IMAX is truly something that can't be replicated even in the most equipped home theater. And two major 2014 blockbusters are going to make that ticket price worth it.

Cillian Murphy Feels 'Transcendence' For Wally Pfister's Directorial Debut

If there has been an unofficial rabbit's foot in Christopher Nolan's last run of films, it would have to be Cillian Murphy. The actor has appeared in all three "The Dark Knight" films, as well as "Inception," and now he's moving sideways into the directorial of Wally Pfister...produced by none other than Nolan himself.
