Christian Bale

Christian Charles Philip Bale (born in Pembrokeshire, Wales on 30 January 1974) is a British actor who has starred in both blockbuster films and smaller projects from independent producers and art houses.

Bale first caught the public eye at the age of 13, when he was cast in the starring role of Steven Spielberg's Empire of the Sun (1987). In 2000, he garnered critical acclaim for his portrayal of serial killer Patrick Bateman in American Psycho. He earned a reputation as a method actor after he lost 63 pounds to play the role of Trevor Reznik in The Machinist (2004).

Bale went on to receive greater commercial recognition and acclaim for his performance as Bruce Wayne/Batman in Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins (2005), The Dark Knight (2008) and The Dark Knight Rises (2012). He also portrayed Dicky Eklund in the biopic The Fighter (2010), for which he received critical acclaim and won several awards, including the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor and the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role.

In 2013, he starred in the comedy-drama American Hustle, for which he received his second Academy Award nomination, his first in the Best Actor category, in addition to a Golden Globe Nomination for Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy. [Wikipedia]

  1. Christian Bale has been one of my favorite actors ever since his performance in Empire of the my mind one of the best child performances ever! Great posters...I like all the action Batman posters. I have seen every single one of these movies with the exception of Out of the Furnace....but that is high on my list of movies to watch. Looking at the Reign of Fire poster ...I thought Wow! who would have thought when making that movie that both would be Oscar winners in the near future. Nice addition to your poster series.

  2. When I first saw the Reign of Fire poster I thought whoa this is going to be the dragon movie to end all dragon movies and then I saw the film...
    I've seen all but 4 of the films on this page. Out of the Furnace was good and well acted by everyone but not a film I'd watch again, unless I forget all about it. Thanks for commenting!
