In anticipation of the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I DVD release, we spent some time with the cast at the press day in New York. It was double trouble when we sat down with James and Oliver Phelps, who have played the mischievous Fred and George Weasley since the first film. The guys discussed how they relate to their onscreen counterparts, and opened up about what it was like to film the epic battle scene in the forthcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II. Check it out!
In honor of the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I DVD release, the films stars reunited for a press day in NYC. When we sat down with Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid) and Michael Gambon (Dumbledore), it wasn't long before the funny British actors were reminiscing about their favorite scenes and sharing stories about watching the kids grow up. They even revealed some anecdotes about what it was like behind the scenes: apparently, prankster Gambon had some fun with a fart machine. Watch!
Earlier this month at WonderCon, we spoke with Henry Cavill (aka the new Superman) and Luke Evans about their upcoming Greek mythology movie, Immortals. The handsome actors got buff for their roles, but Henry also dealt with another challenge on the set: a Hollywood sex scene. Watch as he shares behind-the-scenes scoop about his experience and talks about taking on the iconic role of Superman!
Hanna is released into theaters this weekend, and we had a chance to sit down with star Saoirse Ronan and director Joe Wright. The pair talk about why the action of the film attracted them to the movie, the experience of shooting in freezing-cold Finland, and how much fun it was to film the fight choreography.
You may recognize Greta Gerwig from her breakout role in indie Greenberg, but she's nabbed her first big-budget starring role in this week's Arthur. At the junket for the film, Gerwig dished on being a huge fan of Russell Brand and talked about what it's like to film love scenes with the goofy comedian.
Rainn Wilson and director James Gunn stopped by WonderCon last weekend to talk about their dark comedy Super. Gunn, who's the ex-husband of Wilson's The Office costar Jenna Fischer, talks about how Wilson came to be cast as Frank, a costumed but powerless superhero. Wilson divulges the reasons why he wanted to make the film, and why this "oddball" movie isn't for everyone — a statement I'd agree with.
In Arthur, Helen Mirren plays Hobson, the straitlaced nanny who cares for the titular carefree man-child played by Russell Brand. At the film's junket, Mirren admitted that Brand is the reason why she signed on to the film, and talked about how much love and respect she has for the actor after working so closely with him. The Oscar-winning actress stayed humble about being out of her league in comedy, and revealed that she's terrified to host Saturday Night Live this weekend. Watch below, then find out what Brand had to say about Mirren in return!
Jason Winer is best known for his work as a director and executive producer on Modern Family, but he takes the plunge into his first film with this week's release Arthur. While promoting his debut, Winer talked about the similarities between Modern Family and Arthur, why he was initially against doing the remake, and sharing tea with Helen Mirren. Watch below, and be sure to see what Russell Brand had to say about the film as well.
Future Superman Henry Cavill was in San Francisco this weekend for WonderCon to talk about his role as Theseus in Immortals, and we had a chance to chat with him for a few minutes before the film's panel. Cavill talked about his Immortals character, the rigorous training he had to do for the role, and his recently cast Superman costar Amy Adams, who will play his iconic love interest, Lois Lane.
Russell Brand brought his charm and signature wacky jokes to the junket for his new movie, Arthur. The comedian had plenty to say about working with an entourage of talented women, listening in on costar Jennifer Garner's phone calls, and how much fun he had wearing George Clooney's batsuit (as seen in the trailer). He also gets sweet revealing that his marriage to Katy Perry changed him — watch!
