Apart from Principe, the filmmaker behind The Dark Knight Trilogy was inevitably asked about the casting of his Principe co-star Robert pattinson as the latest iteration of The Caped Crusader in the upcoming Matt Reeves The batman. In fact, Pattinson found out he landed the role of Batman on the set of Principe, and Nolan discussed the vibe on set after the casting news broke.
Nolan was recently interviewed by Singapore media CNA, and the director was asked what he thought of Principe to be called the “savior of cinema” in the wake of the pandemic. Nolan said:
“All I can really take responsibility for is making the best film I can. I think cinema is bigger than any movie in one way or another, and I think people tend to simplify things a bit, especially in a time like this. I’m just very happy that the studio thinks they can let the film play in places where theaters have been able to open. Obviously, this is not the release we envisioned when we were making the movie. But then, the world is not as we imagined it when we made the movie, and we had to adapt like everyone else. I’m just very, very happy that audiences all over the world are starting to be able to respond to the film, because for me as a filmmaker, the film is not over until audiences get to see it. and tell me what it is that I did.
Reviews have been mixed compared to international critics who have seen Principe until there. There have been constant complaints about the confusion and confusion of the script, but the film’s action sequences have been hailed as some of the best ever seen on the big screen. It’s just a shame that many audiences in the United States won’t appreciate it because of our incompetent governments and their mismanagement of the coronavirus pandemic.
Either way, since Christopher Nolan is best known for being the head of The black Knight trilogy, the interview ultimately resulted in Robert Pattinson finding out that he had landed the lead role in The batman during filming Principe. Pattinson recently revealed that he tried to keep the hearing a secret, but Nolan knew exactly what was going on. The actor said The Irish Times earlier this month:
“It’s funny because Chris is so secretive about everything to do with his films. And then I had to be really secret about Batman Things. So I had to lie to Chris about having to get tested – I said I had a family emergency. And as soon as I said, “It’s a family emergency,” he said, “You do Batman audition, right? “
And the rest, as they say, is history. So, did Pattinson talk to Nolan about the role after locking it down? Did the director have any advice for the actor to take on such a Herculean task? The director said:
“He certainly didn’t ask me for any advice. We kept a respectful silence around the matter until the end of the shoot. We said two things and made a few jokes. We had a little chat about various aspects of what he was going to go through. But I was delighted that he was chosen and I think he will do an incredible job. I’m really excited to see what he’s doing with this character.
We wish Nolan was a bit more specific with the jokes on set, as well as their discussion of what to expect in Pattinson taking on such a scrutinized role. But Nolan usually doesn’t open up much to such details, choosing to keep conversations going between those directly involved. We can respect that, but it does little to satisfy our curiosity.
Principe hits theaters next week, with early access screenings starting at August 31 before the film hits even more theaters on September 3, 2020. We don’t want to actively encourage anyone in the US to look for the movie in theaters because we don’t think it’s safe to do so yet, but if you are heading to theaters, be safe there.
