Christopher Nolan is one of the most iconic directors of all time.

Throughout his career, the British filmmaker has touched on some very serious subjects such as mental illness in Insomnia and Memento, revenge in The Prestige and the prospect of nuclear war in Oppenheimer.

Even his Dark Knight trilogy touched on subjects like government surveillance and the rich-poor divide.

However, he does like to wind down like the rest of us.

In fact, when asked what his 'remote drop movie' was, Nolan said anything by Stanley Kubrick before mentioning he'll never turn off Will Ferrell comedy Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby whenever it comes on the television.

“I mean, god, anything by Kubrick, you know? It’s a remote drop,” Nolan said on The Rich Eisen show. “And some of the great comedies too, I mean Talladega Nights, I’m never gonna be able to switch that up.”

"The Ballad of Ricky Bobby is a Christopher Nolan mic drop movie?” Eisen asked.

“If you ain’t first, you’re last,” replied Nolan, in reference to Ricky Bobby's catchphrase.

Talladega Nights told the story of Ricky Bobby, a NASCAR driver.

Would Nolan direct a Bond movie?

Nolan has long been linked with potentially helming a Bond movie, and it appears he would consider working on that franchise if the circumstances were right.

"The influence of those movies in my filmography is embarrassingly apparent. It would be an amazing privilege to do one,” Nolan said on the Happy Sad Confused podcast.

"At the same time, when you take on a character like that you’re working with a particular set of constraints.

"It has to be the right moment in your creative life where you can express what you want to express and really burrow into something within the appropriate constraints because you would never want to take on something like that and do it wrong."
