How do you get an audience today to line up for that most traditional — some would say stodgy and irrelevant — of genres, the Western? It helps to pile on the good humor and the star power (Silverado), or to reconfigure the conflict of cowboys and Indians into a misty-eyed New Age lovefest (Dances With Wolves). In the case of 3:10 to Yuma, a sturdy and enjoyable remake of the 1957 minor classic (the original was based on a short story by Elmore Leonard, and it has his affection for sleazy good-bad men), director James Mangold (Walk the Line) amps up the mayhem, going for his version of a Peckinpah frenzy. As the picture opens, an armored coach gets ambushed by a very wild bunch of outlaws, a scene that’s staged like the whiz-bang prelude to an urban action movie: the camera bouncing and jostling from a horseman’s-eye view, the bullets fired from everywhere, the Pinkerton agents who are guarding the coach’s payload leaping to unleash their fire with a primitive machine gun. • Read full story »
A spectacular explosion has shaken Chicago, but it was all planned as part of the special effects for the new Batman movie. Movie crews staged the blast at the old, long-abandoned headquarters for Brach’s Candy.
The site was dressed up as a hospital and actors were evacuated the area before the building blew up. Filming in Chicago has been going on for several months, as it doubles as Batman’s home town of Gotham City.
The Dark Knight, the sequel to Batman Begins, stars Christian Bale as Batman and Aussie actor Heath Ledger as super villain the Joker.

Russell Crowe and Christian Bale may have an adversarial relationship in the Western drama 3:10 to Yuma, but the two intense actors had no problem representing the film as a team at a press conference in Los Angeles. The banter between the two actors at the conference was free and easy, with Crowe even good-naturedly throwing a few Batman jokes Bale’s way.
In 3:10 to Yuma Crowe plays Ben Wade, the leader of a ruthless gang of thieves and killers. Bale stars as a husband and father who tries to save his land by taking a temporary job as one of the guards in charge of putting the outlaw Wade on the 3:10 train to Yuma.
Russell Crowe and Christian Bale Press Conference
You both played Americans before but were you surprised to be asked to star in a Western?
Christian Bale: “Not for a second, no (laughing).”
Russell Crowe: “Yeah, no, didn’t surprise me. I had spent quite a bit of time with James Mangold about six years ago. I didn’t realize that he was spending… I was recording an album in the studio at the time [he was] prepping Walk the Line. I didn’t realize that at the time, but we sort of became conversational friends and so when he sent me the script I read it. I enjoyed the dynamic between the two characters and that was basically the decision made.”
