Director Christopher Nolan is responsible for some of the biggest and most critically acclaimed blockbusters of recent years. Actress Anne Hathaway, who has worked with Nolan on The Dark Knight Rises and Interstellar, think it could have cracked the code of Nolan’s successful: it does not allow chairs on their sets.Hathaway has revealed this strange method of working during an interview with her Les Miserables co-star Hugh Jackman, led by Variety (via the playlist). According to the Catwoman actress, Nolan philosophy can be summed up this way: “If you have chairs, people will sit, and if they are sitting, they don’t work. “
Hathaway continued, ” I mean, he has amazing films in terms of scope and ambition and technical prowess, and emotion. It always happens at the end in under schedule and under budget. I think he is on to something with the president thing. “Nolan will recall, Jackman has also starred in a film by Nolan (2006 Prestige), but he does not reveal that the “no chairs” rule was in effect then.(It should be noted that the film sets are very busy and often crowded and cluttered places with the most notable of seats usually reserved for the video village, where a bank of monitors allow you to read. The stars, of course, of trailers they can return to during the downtime of the game.)
Nolan’s next big-screen epic is Tenet, an ambitious, time-bending spy movie featuring John David Washington, and the future of Batman Robert Pattinson. We’re still not quite sure what the film is about, and even Washington has admitted that the cast was confused about the plot of Principle.Unfortunately, it is also difficult to say exactly when the Principle shall come to pass in the halls. Like many film and TV projects, the Principle of the release date has already been pushed back on several occasions because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Nolan would have been very adamant to release the film in theatres in July, but Warner Bros. has now pushed back to August 12. As a result, AMC Theaters has delayed his project to reopen until July 30.
