- How is it to be involved in the anticipated movie of the year? What is the burden of responsibility?
"Well, as actors, we have done our part. Pressure and the burden of responsibility lies on the Christopher Nolan. But I must say that for every movie I play, as if no one is going to watch it (laughs). That's better, because you cease to strive to make a definite impression: "What do think about this people?" So, I usually say to myself: "Do not think anyone watching this film, so do everything as you see fit, and is expected to be correctly according to other people. "
- What is the place you remember the shooting and liked it more than others?
"I must tell you about one of the places, which certainly would have mentioned all the participants of shooting, and that was a real hell on earth - it is India. When we started shooting, we had a couple of days in Jodhpur, and all the local thought we were sick assholes (laughs). We went on a 50-degree heat, and then returned to the room with air conditioning, and said, "Oh," because it seems like you're poking your head in the freezer. In this room, the temperature was 30 degrees, that is, you can imagine what was it. Just a baptism of fire. With regard to our well-being, by the end of the day we started to rave because of the heat. But now there is something to remember!"
- What do you think will be the legacy of the trilogy? And that would leave the viewer to you personally?
"I believe that time will put everything in its place. For me, it looks like a systematization of the available data: the first time you watch a movie, you watch it after a while, and then, after a few years, you get an answer. As for me, as participant, I believe that among the trees of the forest did not see. "
- Is Chris the same director, with whom you would like to work in the future?
- You mentioned that you will not miss Batman costume.
"It's a double edged sword. There are certain moments when you put on a costume, and you begins a migraine. This year, I fell awkwardly on my back, or did something wrong and hurt my back a month. It was hard. I used to that the back is usually sore for three days, but now I'm 38 and in the morning, I limped like an invalid. That is, this year things changed for me, I began to get tired faster. But as soon as you start to complain, here comes the idea there is nothing to whine because you play the legendary hero. "
- Will Batman have new devices?
"Of course. He was always ready to present something new. And always it is something out of the ordinary, is not it? Batman does not let you go without demonstrating a new gadget."
- In Batman's violent fans, and the Joker is much better known as a villain than Bane, which is a pretty obscure character. The question is which way you go, because most people do not know anything about Batman, except for the nerds, who know too much.
"Here we have a bald actor. Tom Hardy comes through, that others would not go. Being bald and respect for Chris in his decisions ... we are here, damn it, an actor who has created a phenomenal villain."
- What did you feel after reading the script for the first time? What were your impressions? What was it like to dive into this world again?
"I am accustomed to this process, because I went to Chris home and read the script there. And I read terribly slow. And when I'm given the opportunity to read, I usually read, reread and reread - I think Chris could not believe it. Chris all the time came for me, thinking I was asleep (laughs). We are interrupted for lunch, it was getting dark, the family gathered for dinner. And I was sitting, meeting and seeing off guests (laughs). "
Tom Hardy plays the role of Bane in the final part of the trilogy by Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight 2: The Legend Continues", in an interview he spoke about the work on the role.
- I wanted to ask you the same question that you were not able to respond to the exhibition Comic-Con ...
"Perhaps I can’t answer it and now (laughs)."
- In "The Dark Knight 2" you have some accent. What did you do with your voice?
"I can not tell you. However, nothing."
- How is it to fight with Christian Bale - he a fighter, you are - a warrior? (K. Bale starred in the movie "The Fighter" and T. Hardy - in the "Warrior").
"I love working with Christian. Yes, I like to work with all. And meet again with Chris Nolan was also nice. All team members of this project are very friendly people, real professionals. When you work with Chris, you do not feel any suppression of the individual with his hand. That's fine. Therefore, all play their roles in an atmosphere of trust and peace. "
- Can you describe us your experience, during the filming in mask and costume?
"It's hot. Very, very, very hot. Yes, we all just heated. When you think about guys who are in Afghanistan, or Baghdad, and about the equipment that they have to put on, slip the idea that you have not so and bad. But, in fact, in a suit and mask, very hot and hard to breathe. "
- Is it difficult to speak when you are in mask?
"Well, I did not hear, and no one hears me. These are the things (laughs). And then the magic begins."
- Maybe saying the text, you have helped yourself by gestures, facial expressions?
"I can not talk about magic."
- Now you respect Darth Vader in a greater extent?
"(Laughs) I grew up on the original trilogy "Star Wars". But Darth Vader is cool, is not it? Very cool!"
- You knew Bain before Chris proposed you to play it or you had to get to know this character?
"I do not have direct knowledge about the world of Batman. In this regard, I am like a newborn. I'm pretty reticent man, I spent a lot of time with my dog. It is no more. Each new project - a new experience, so it all starts from the moment when I take my role. "
- There are many incarnations of Bane, but all of them remains unchanged its vitality. Nolan likes to bring a sense of the plausibility of what is happening with the bulk of characters. So, how are you going to relate to reality of Bane?
"Well, if all of Nolan's always correspond to reality, then I should take his example. Yeah."
- When you're playing Charlie Bronson, and your character in "Warrior", both of these characters were bad guys, but the bad guys, which you loved. You are experiencing the same feelings, playing Bane, or it must be an absolute villain, who can not love you because you do on the side of Batman? You play it differently than some of your other characters?
"It's a different character, so of course I figure it's not like my previous characters. I think answering this question, I can say a lot of nonsense, so I will not say anything."
- Do you have any concerns because you enter "arena" after Heath Ledger's Joker?
"No, I do not think so. This would mean that I enter into a competition with someone prominent, and in fact not a question of whose talent whose work is higher and steeper. Goal is to become better as far as possible, but not better than anyone. Clear what I mean? What made Ledger - amazing. It's true. I have a role I should play, and I'll play it. I put it clear? "
- The last franchise in which you participated, was the project of "Star Trek" ("Star Trek: Nemesis”). You generally like to contribute to the big franchises?
"Working in "Star Trek" was a real discovery for me. Then I was very young. I think it worked for about nine months when received a role in this film, and it was something incredible. Work in the project has opened my eyes at such a young age that should not be afraid to play a responsible, for example, the villain in the Batman comics or hobbit - who else. Heroes of "Star Trek" are loved by many, and, therefore, to your great responsibility. Thus, the "Star Trek" was the launching pad, and, behold, I am here - incredibly grateful for the role of villain in Batman's world, over the size and quantity, and the importance of which, if I'm thinking, you begin to really get nervous. "
- What kind of scene you're shooting today?
"I must speak with 10 thousand people. I'm a little excited (laughs). Come on, cheer me up!"
After the huge success of "Avengers" this decision of rival studio Warner Bros. was only a matter of time. "Justice League" may be also appear on the big screen - the film has found a new writer. Before the company was trying to approach conceived in 2008, but the project was shelved. Now, however, is clearly the priorities have changed, and the movie is in company’s plans.
Justice League - a team of superheroes publisher DC Comics, which includes Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Flash, and other characters. For the first time this team has appeared in comics in 1960. Since then, the League has created many cartoons and even a TV movie (who was the pilot episode of the series of planned).
In 2007, the studio Warner Bros. wanted to adapt the story to the big screen. Project has been connected to the creator of "Mad Max" and the animated film "Happy Feet" George Miller. Among the actors in the "League" had to participate, Adam Brody (Flash), rapper Common (Green Lantern), Armie Hammer (Batman) and Megan Gale (Wonder Woman).
However, the text of the tape is constantly corresponded, in addition, layered writers' strike and the lack of evidence on tax incentives (surveys were to be held in Australia), and eventually all of the above led to froze the project.
Since then, the League somehow was forgotten. But during this time Marvel launched a massive attack on the audience, producing two tapes per year and securing the line of its monumental paintings, "Avengers", which became one of the highest-grossing film in history.
While it is unknown whether the development of an entirely new picture, or in the case involving old developments. The script for the "League" will write, Will Bill, he is responsible for the text of the strip by Ruben Fleischer "Hunters in the gangsters', also developed on the Warner Bros. In addition, the writer is working on a remake of "Logan's Getaway" and reboot "Lethal Weapon."
The latest fruit of collaboration Warner and DC Comics is a film about "Green Lantern", unfortunately, have not justified the hopes of commercial and cool adopted by the critics. But among the future joint projects of publishers and studios is the new film by Christopher Nolan's Batman and the "Man of Steel," Zack Snyder.
Danish filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn is close to completing negotiations with the studio DreamWorks on his participation in the transfer to the big screen graphic novel “Button Man: The Killing Game”, whose authors are the creator of the "Judges Dredd" John Wagner and artist Arthur Ranson.
The action centers around comic Button Man Harry Exton. A few millionaires, eager and willing to experience acute spectacularly fun, organize dangerous competition in which assassins have to fight against each other, and the rich will be bet on the winner. One of the guests in a deadly game and becomes the main character. After some time, the protagonist decides to abandon the proposed dirty work, but the only way to leave the hunt - is alternately the destruction of all persons in funding an eccentric idea.
Novel “Button Man: The Killing Game” was published in 1992 by cult British comic magazine 2000 AD. This magazine has also released "Judge Dredd", whose first film version with Sylvester Stallone in the title role was published in 1995, and modern, with Karl Urban, will be in theaters in September of 2012.
DreamWorks has previously had plans for the story of Harry Exton. In 2008, the company invited the author of "Eagle Eye" Hillary Sayts for comic adaptation of Wagner and Ranson. This week artist, commenting on his website, inviting Refn in the project, said that now the producers are looking for a new writer for the Button Man, and the studio has extended a contract with the illustrator and his colleague for another 12 months. Ranson was joking, I thought, as if shooting tape at this point is start to "make him rich and famous for Christmas." However, current advances in the production of paintings writes an artist, thus increasing the likelihood that DreamWorks will make the planned film.
Producers of adaptation will be Roger Kass, Josh Brown and Michael De Luca.
After the triumph of his Hollywood debut "Drive" at Cannes, where the Dane won the award for best director, Nicolas Winding Refn went to shoot his new thriller, "Only God forgives" in Thailand. In the film, scheduled to premiere in March 2013th, as in previous works of director, will play Ryan Gosling.

"Wolverine" will be the sixth film in the franchise of the Fox of the mutants. "X-Men," which appeared on the screen in 2000, turned the attitude and the studio audience to the comic book adaptations. Bryan Singer took a dark drama in which there was no room in yellow suits. Hugh Jackman got the role of a mutant with the adamantium skeleton quite by accident. Initially, the choice fell on Russell Crowe, but the actor refused. When approved by the role Dyugrey Scott could not be removed from the role in "Mission: Impossible 2", just three weeks before the film appeared Jackman.
In 2009, Wolverine got his own movie, but the picture of Gavin Hood did not receive such a warm reception, as movies of Singer. Feed with a budget of $ 150 million earned 373 million in worldwide box office.
The sequel was supposed to shoot Darren Aronofsky, and an action plan to partially move to Japan. But due to earthquake, this idea had to leave. Scheduled for March of 2011 surveys were frustrated, and at the same Aronofsky dropped out of the project. In the summer of 2011 took the director's chair, James Mangold. He has worked with Jackman - shot him in the melodrama "Kate and Leo".
The declared production budget of "Wolverine" makes $ 80 million. Working in Australia will not only save money but to create over 720 jobs for local residents, as well as the type of these extras in 1200. Post production will take place in America with a few Australian companies.
After the cancellation of filming epic scale Alex Proyas 'Paradise Lost', as well as the decision to close the series "Terra Nova" after the first season Mangold film will be very helpful for the Australian cinema production accustomed to Hollywood's biggest projects. More recently, Baz Luhrmann has finished shooting "The Great Gatsby," and now in Melbourne are shooting pictures Stuart Beattie, "I, Frankenstein" with Aaron Eckhart. By the way, this year will return to Australia Alex Proyas - will shoot adaptation of the novel by Robert A. Heinlein's "Unpleasant Profession of Jonathan Hoag."
"Wolverine" is expected on the screens in July 2013th.
