THE GREY's Liam Neeson And Joe Carnahan Discuss Christopher Nolan's Batman Movies
Having worked together on both The A-Team and The Grey, Liam Neeson (Ra's Al Ghul in Batman Begins and possibly this year's The Dark Knight Rises) and director Joe Carnahan discuss Christopher Nolan's impact on the comic book movie world.
"He seems to have upped the ante quite a bit, hasn't he," Neeson said of Christopher Nolan's impact on the comic book movie genre in a recent interview with MTV News while promoting his latest movie The Grey alongside director Joe Carnahan. "He's made it dark and complex."
Carnahan added: "What Chris had to rescue, the doldrums from which he had to rescue the Batman franchise, were considerable. I mean, that's like diving down into the center of the Earth and pulling up [gold]. I just think he did a remarkable job of that. And the proof is in the pudding. Those movies are absolute character studies disguised as superhero films, which I think are great."
"That's a good description," Neeson agreed. "That was very good!"
The Grey is in theatres now and after seeing it earlier today, I definitely recommend checking it out this weekend. Liam Neeson takes on a pack of wolves. What's not to love?
