Collider talks Cinematography and The Batman with Greig Fraser

image host

Adam Chitwood from Collider chatted with Australian cinematographer Greig Fraser currently working with Matt Reeves on The Batman. In the interview Greig mentions that what the actors have said previously about the movie being a character based movie is correct. That Matt’s script is very very good and well thought out and they’re having a ball filming it. The film won’t be oppressively dark visually and they are definitely trying to create intrigue. Click play below – I’ve set the video to start at 11.22

Matt’s an incredible director … I’m excited to be currently working with him on Batman…But I can tell you – what I will do – what some of the actors have gone away and said, it is a character based movie about the characters, about Andy Serkis’s character and Rob Pattinson’s character. It’s a very very good script, like all of Matt’s scripts it’s very good, it’s very well thought out and we’re having a ball making it. We’re doing our best. It’s a lot of pressure. I don’t think Matt takes non-pressure movies. … Batman is a lot of pressure. He’s gutsy, he’s a gutsy director.

It’s a good question [on how dark Batman will be] and it’s a question we ask ourselves. I can’t talk specifically of course. There’s darkness in the character for sure and we need to create a mood, which is obvious, it’s a Batman film. I don’t think it’s going to be oppressively dark in terms of visually, because that’s not what we’re trying to – we’re not trying to have a competition about who can go the darkest of the darkest of the darkest. We’re trying to create intrigue. I love the way some of the comics look and the graphic novels. You can see relatively quite clearly in those graphic novels. I can’t be too specific. I’m having a ball lighting it. It’s hard work but so rewarding.

Robert Pattinson on Cover of Elle Man (Poland)

image host

Rob graces one of the covers of the holiday edition of Elle Man Poland. The magazine also includes an interview, which is similar to previous Elle magazines. Below is an extract which I’ve added for ease (Google translation). The full interview can be found in the holiday edition which is now on sale:

What would you tell teachers who discouraged you from attending the theater club?

I’m glad they thought so, because it made me very angry at the time. That’s why I started looking for theater outside of school. Then I found an agent. It wouldn’t happen if I only played in the school theater.

You’ve made 34 movies and series in 15 years. Do you still find joy in this job?

Now I have more of her! The more you do, the more you learn. And a new door opens in your mind. I used to think that acting is a test that you can’t fail. It may be so, but it doesn’t make much sense to think about it. If he detaches himself from thinking about the result, he simply begins to enjoy what he is doing. Not only in acting.

Can you choose among more interesting roles?

Yes. The older you are, the more you can do and finally you can talk to the director on an equal footing. Then the work turns into cooperation and more creative ideas are created. When you are younger, you have the mentality of a school kid. Someone tells you what to do. Then you can do it or say no. However, there is no room for partner discussion.

Do you read comments about yourself on the internet?

I read when my movie enters theaters.

And when they write badly, it touches you so much?

When I was younger it hurt a lot. But later I noticed that reading negative comments is strangely addictive. Addicts more than reading good. You can read a hundred good and one bad and you will be thinking just about this bad. When it came to me, I stopped worrying.

And if a negative comment about your work is sent by someone you care about?

This is rare. I think my intended isolation helps. It’s fun not to exist on Instagram. Then many unpleasant things just pass you by.

Do you consider yourself a millennium? You are 34 years old.

I think that I’m mentally closer to the previous generation. Millennials attach great importance to social media, and for me they are not important. They rather annoy me. I see no reason to publish something about myself or take pictures and post them later on the web … It just seems unnecessary and even crazy to me.

You’ve made many movies lately. Soon new premieres: “Tenet” by Christopher Nolan and later “Batman” announced a long time ago. Can you tell about them

I can’t say much about “Tenet” or “Batman” yet. I don’t even know much about it myself! “Tenet” is to be in theaters this summer. Pictures for “Batman” will not start until the end of the year.

Were you willing to accept this role?

Yes. I really wanted to play it. I’ve always dreamed of diversity in this profession. After a few more intimate movies, I wanted to play a super-production and I think I downloaded them with my thoughts. Suddenly Chris Nolan from Tenet and Matt Reeves from Batman appeared. They are both really amazing and extraordinary directors. I would agree to play every role in their films.

You’ve been training a lot lately. Are these preparations for the role of Batman?

Yes. I go to training every day. If I work on a given day, I go after the pictures. I’m building a silhouette (laughs). This is fun because I’ve never been such a big muscular guy before.

Thanks to @Monsieur_HJ for article alert.

Zoe Kravitz Talks Robert Pattinson & The Batman

image host

Marc Malkin from The Big Ticket recently spoke with Zoe Kravitz. This is what she had to say about Rob being perfect for Batman according to Variety:

Why is Robert Pattinson perfect to play Batman?

Good question. First of all, he’s just a really good actor. He started out as this kind of teen pop sensation, and then I think we all kind of saw through his work that there was a lot more going on. He’s a really interesting artist, and that is very much Batman in a way. We have the illusion of Bruce Wayne, and then we have Batman in the shadows that has a lot more complicated things going on. So just in that, I think he’s perfect for this role. He can relate in that way, and he looks good in the suit, man. He looks good in the suit. That’s a good jaw line. But he’s just a great actor and he brings so much to everything he does. I think that it’s a really hard role because people are expecting a lot. Also it’s restricting in a lot of ways. You’re wearing the suit, and you can’t see their eyes, and you can only move in a certain way. So you have to get really creative in terms of how can you portray a multidimensional character? He’s way up for the challenge and has really interesting ideas already. I think he’s perfect, perfect casting.

Robert Pattinson #TheBatman Will Not Be Part of DCEU

image host

You may have heard news overnight that Michael Keaton is in talks to reprise his Batman role as part of Ezra Miller’s untitled The Flash movie. According to The Wrap this means:

Matt Reeves upcoming “The Batman” will not be affected and Robert Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne is still viewed as the future of the franchise.

The Playlist then went on to say:

Additionally, as you might have already expected, this basically ensures that Matt Reeve’s upcoming “The Batman” is being positioned as a stand-alone “Joker”-esque film, existing in its own universe separate from the DCEU. I.e., Robert Pattison [sic] won’t be seen alongside Ezra Miller, Gal Gadot, and maybe Henry Cavill, etc. This gives Reeves more free-reign to tell his own story and not have to slot it into the existing, already-convoluted DC film continuity. And by allowing for Keaton to mentor Batgirl, this also opens up the chance for Reeves to finally tell the definitive Robin story that has yet to really be explored on film should the film go on to create a trilogy.

Eliza Scanlen & Peter Sarsgaard talk Robert Pattinson

image host

In a recent interview with Eliza Scanlen, Charles Bramesco for Decider cheekily asked about #TheDevilAlltheTime. This is what Eliza had to say:

I’m curious about Antonio Campos’ new movie The Devil All the Time, in which you’re part of a large ensemble cast. I’ve heard it’s episodic — who’d you share your scenes with, and can you tell us anything about them?

I worked predominantly with Rob Pattinson and Tom Holland. In the film, I play the orphaned sister of Arvin, that’s Tom. My character falls in love with the new preacher in town, who’s played by Rob. I think that’s about all I ought to say, though that’s plenty.

Thanks @Monsieur_HJ for heads up

Meanwhile, Peter Saarsgard had this to say to Brian Davids from The Hollywood Reporter about Rob:

From what he’s seen of Robert Pattinson’s take on Batman, Sarsgaard is beyond impressed.

“He looks amazing. I have to say, he really, really does,” Sarsgaard shares. “The work he was doing was really cool. I really dug his Batman, and I can’t wait to see it [on-screen]. I think he’s a very interesting actor, and… I loved him in the Safdie brothers movie [Good Time] that he did. And I actually really liked this one he just did… the comedy movie with Willem Dafoe. The Lighthouse. He’s just an interesting, interesting actor.”

Zoe Kravitz Talks Robert Pattinson and #TheBatman Costume


John Horowitz spoke to Zoe and unsurprisingly brought up Rob and The Batman costume. Here’s what Zoe had to say when Josh asked what it was like to see her buddy Rob in the costume (The Batman talk starts around 43:40):

Oh it was amazing. I mean – he’s Batman when he’s wearing that costume he’s Batman. It’s interesting, it’s like you don’t really get used to seeing Batman walk past you because we’ve all grown up with this character. It’s like a pinch me moment all the time and he’s wonderful, he’s really wonderful. And there some times when I have moment especially when I auditioned I remember just feeling silly and he was only in half the suit because it was just a camera test and we’re adults and we’re dressed up like Batman and were doing a really dramatic scene and sometimes it’s like it’s happening and sometimes this is funny…the script is phenomenal.
