A few months back, it was announced that Warner Brothers and Paramount Pictures were set to co-finance Christopher Nolan’s latest film, “Interstellar” which was an odd move considering both studios are rivals. Well Hollywood networking pays off because The Hollywood Reporter reveals what Warners had to give up in order to get into bed with Nolan again. In order to secure co-financing rights, Warners has passed Paramount the rights to co-finance the next installment of the “Friday the 13th” franchise, as well as the next “South Park” film.

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.

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.

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.

At some point in the last few months, everyone decided it was time to pour some haterade on Anne Hathaway for some reason. It's gotten to the point where the New York Times even did an entire article about it for some reason. Frankly, we don't get it -- she's an excellent actress, who has had some great success, which we suppose makes some people jealous or whatever -- but, Christopher Nolan doesn't read internet gossip and trash and realizes talent when it's in front of him.
