Here’s Christian Bale’s Screen Test For ‘Batman Begins’

 

While I'm still crying in my sweet tea that Damian Lewis is being suggested for Lex Luthor in Batman vs. Superman instead of Walter White, here's Christian Bale vs. Val Kilmer's Batman Suit and Amy Adams during his screen test for Batman Begins. I don't know what we can learn from this video, but one thing we can take away from it is that somebody had plenty of time to step in and say, "Hey, Christian. What's up with that voice you're doing right now, bro? You need a Sucrets? No? Then maybe stop doing that."

Here’s The ‘American Hustle’ Trailer

 

Here's the trailer for American Hustle, David O. Russell's followup to Silver Lining's Playbook. Apparently Jennifer Lawrence became an actual prostitute and Bradley Cooper got a perm and wears blackface. The trailer has a Led Zeppelin song so I guess that's cool.

Bruce Wayne’s Alter Ego Is Actually Christian Bale


In case you wanted to read something inspiring here today, here’s 8-year old Batman fan and cancer patient Zach just shooting the shit with Christian Bale. It’s been well-documented that Bale is a raging dick on movie sets, but show him a kid with cancer or somebody who is suffering and he’ll take all day to bring them even a semblance of happiness. He’s probably only second to Johnny Depp. Because we all know Johnny Depp would have shown up in costume and let this little boy kill Bane.

The Dark Knight Rises Has More Leaked Stuff


Security seems very tight on The Dark Knight Rises set. Very tight. The Hollywood Reporter says:
Batman (Christian Bale) fights villain Bane (Tom Hardy) in new footage WPIX captured from The Dark Knight Rises’ Pittsburgh set over the weekend. As The Huffington Post points out, the clip shows a brawl between the Gotham City Police and the Arkham Asylum inmates. Snow swirls all around as cops beat down inmates and Batman pushes Bane up the stairs. Local resident and extra Erin Giambelluca tells the Forest Hills-Regent Square Patch site that it was hot outside and extras drank tons of water to stay cool in their winter-weather costumes. “Right after the football scene ended, they did one explosion,” she says. “It looked like pieces of grass all over the field to make it look like it was blown up while the players were on it, and we had to wear ear plugs for that. We had to rehearse and make sure we weren’t smiling during that part.”

The Winners You Care About



In case you missed it in my last two posts, the 83rd Academy Awards were last night. Besides Inception not winning Best Picture, the greatest tragedy of the night was James Franco and Anne Hathaway as the hosts. James Franco was high as giraffe’s pussy the whole night and Anne Hathaway and her tentacle arms were painfully unfunny. I couldn’t have laughed less if my doctor up showed and presented my brain with Best Achievement in Tumors. Anyway, here were the night’s main winners.
Best Picture: The King’s Speech
Best Actor: Colin Firth, The King’s Speech
Best Actress: Natalie Portman, Black Swan
Actor in a Supporting Role: Christian Bale, The Fighter
Actress in a Supporting Role: Melissa Leo, The Fighter
Director: Tom Hooper, The King’s Speech
Original Screenplay: David Seidler, The King’s Speech
Adapted Screenplay: Aaron Sorkin, The Social Network

Christian Bale Vs. Mel Gibson


It’s really hard to fully express the level of awesome in this video, so I’ll just let you watch it. All I have to say is if God really existed, this would be an actual phone call.

Patrick Bateman Was Based On Tom Cruise



Mary Harron, the director of the film adaptation of Brett Easton Ellis’ 1991 classic novel, American Psycho, sat down for an interview recently and was asked about Christian Bale’s inspiration for the book’s Manhattan serial-killing monster, Patrick Bateman. He found it on David Letterman. BlackBook reports:
It was definitely a process. We talked a lot, but he was in L.A. and I was in New York. We didn’t actually meet in person a lot, just talked on the phone. We talked about how Martian-like Patrick Bateman was, how he was looking at the world like somebody from another planet, watching what people did and trying to work out the right way to behave. And then one day he called me and he had been watching Tom Cruise on David Letterman, and he just had this very intense friendliness with nothing behind the eyes, and he was really taken with this energy.

The movie was the Disney version of the book, but whatever. This might be the greatest thing you read all day, because if anything has ever made more perfect sense in your life someone needs to let me know. Every time I see Tom Cruise, I fully expect him to unzip his skin suit to tell me I’m gonna be a slave worker on his home lizard planet. Dude is creepy. But I gotta go right now, I have to return some videotapes.

Christian Bale Is A Good Actor, Insane



Say what you want about Christian Bale, but when the guy takes a role, he takes the role. In his lastest film, The Fighter, Bale plays a crackhead boxer named Dicky Eklund. Guess what he did. People reports:
Known for his uncanny ability to re-sculpt his body for his movie roles, the Welsh-born actor, who just last month looked handsome and healthy, has gone to extremes to portray fighter Dicky Eklund, opposite Mark Wahlberg and Amy Adams. “I will adjust to what is needed. But only if I have quite an obsession for the role,” Bale told PEOPLE in 2005.Bale revealed he relied on a diet of apples, coffee and cigarettes for his role as insomniac, Trevor Reznik, in The Machinist. The actor lost 63 pounds for the film, which was a third of body weight. Five months after that weight-defying role, Bale switched gears and bulked up for his superhero turn as Bruce Wayne in Batman Begins. A feat that put a lot of pressure on his body – both physically and emotionally. “I think that putting weight on – unfortunately I had to put it on pretty fast and it’s not really healthy doing that – is when I felt bad. I put on 100 pounds in like five months,” Bale said at the time. “You get big mood swings and everything with it.”

The banner picture is one of the first pictures released from the set, and as you can see, he looks like hell. He looked like this for The Machinist, and other than Daniel Day-Lewis, Bale is the only actor working today who will go to any lengths to portray a character. If Cameron Diaz or Jennifer Aniston got a role playing a cancer patient, they’d probably read a pamphlet or the warning on a cigarette pack. Christian Bale would actually dig up Farrah Fawcett and smoke her.

Christian Bale is a Hero



The audio of Christian Bale absolutely losing it on Director of Photography Shane Hurlbut during the filming of Terminator Salvation, caused public outcry last week with many people calling for boycotts of all Bale’s movies because of his treatment of the poor, defenseless Hurlbut. Oops. Radar Online says:
Bale became a hero to cast and crew after his tirade against Hurlbut, who was widely despised, sources tell RadarOnline.com exclusively. “Hurlbut was a condescending (bleep) to everyone,” a source told us. His favorite line was “Why don’t you go stab yourself in the head, you idiot.” Maybe Bale’s not such a bad guy after all.

Well. So instead of this being about a pampered actor throwing a temper tantrum on set, it’s about some asshole that everybody hated getting beasted in front of the entire crew. And as it turns out, he deserved it. Based on that quote, I’m surprised Bale wasn’t allowed to carry this guy’s head on a pike or make one of those NBA posters where he’s dunking on him.

Whoopi Defends Christian Bale



Ever since the audio was released of Christian Bale’s meltdown on the set of Terminator Salvation, the world has been on been pins and needles wondering what the ladies from The View would say. Not really. Whoopi Goldberg actually makes some valid points, but it all goes to hell when Joy Behar starts talking. God, I hate this catty bitch. All that’s missing is her talking about the time she opened for Lamb Chop or the time she shot up heroin with Red Buttons or whatever this hag used to do when the last time she was considered relevant.
