Set Visit: Bad Words - The Filmmakers

Click here to read Part One of our set visit: The Cast! Jason Bateman, Director, Actor On why he chose to direct: They don’t hand out a lot of movies to direct. I guess there’s that. I did do a lot of television directing. Episodic. This is obviously… directing a movie is just so much more complicated and there’s so much more responsibility...

Set Visit: Bad Words - The Cast

The first piece of direction I hear Jason Bateman say on the Golden Quill stage set of BAD WORDS was, I imagine, not meant to be heard by the rest of us. He leaned into an actor playing one of the contenstants parents and smiled, "pick a point. Same sentance, just better." The two actors shared a chuckle and because Jason's lavalier mic picked it all up, the rest of...

Exclusive interview with Harrison Ford for Ender's Game!

The legendary Harrison Ford has had quite a beautiful, varied year; from his great supporting work in 42 to playing mind chess with Gary Oldman in PARANOIA, Ford has certainly been stretching his character muscles. Which is why his turn in ENDER'S GAME is so delightful (and I was happy to tell him as much), as this feels like "token Ford" so-to-speak. By that I mean it's pure cinematic...

Exclusive interview with Asa Butterfield for Ender's Game!

Asa Butterfield simply won me the heck over with HUGO. It's one of those discoveries where I've come to find a cove of other gem's from the young actor after experiencing his Scorsese fantasy. I had not seen THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PAJAMAS or the NANNY MCPHEE sequel before HUGO. In watching them subsequently, I could imagine what Scorsese must have felt upon seeing him for the first...

Exclusive interview with Hailee Steinfeld for Ender's Game!

If you've seen the Coen Brother's masterful adaptation of TRUE GRIT, then... oh of course you have. I don't need to sell Hailee Steinfeld to you, she's already a household name. The wonderful actress may have been on the DL since her Oscar Nominated role as Mattie Ross but that all changes this year. There are 9 feature credits on her IMDB covering this year and the next for Hailee and...

Exclusive 1:1 interview with Chloe Grace Moretz, star of the Carrie remake!

In a way, we should have all seen this coming. Simply following the gallons of fake 'karo syrup' blood in Chloe Grace Moretz's trails, from THE AMITYVILLE HORROR to KICK-ASS to LET ME IN, her career has culminated to the blood soaked prom night of CARRIE. It's surprising then to consider just how different the character is from any she has played before. It's without...

Exclusive 1:1 interview with director Kimberly Peirce for her remake of Carrie!

Kimberley Pierce is one of the few directors I considered a cinematic genius out of the gate with her freshman film BOYS DON'T CRY, a movie so damn powerful I find myself literally quivering in anxiety whenever I revisit it. I can't stress i enough, that picture is a masterpiece. So when I heard she'd be tackling a full fledged studio horror picture a year ago, I flipped like a giddy...

Exclusive 1:1 interview with Julianne Moore for the remake of Carrie!

Julianne Moore... What else is there to say? I've had the pleasure interviewing a lot of wonderful actors, talented filmmakers and even a hero or two (at least to me) in my time at JoBlo but I can't recall getting this feeling I had when I sat down with Julianne Moore... this was a legend. A certified legend. No, really! Just two days prior to our chat Julianne received a star on the...

Exclusive 1:1 interview with Judy Greer for her role as Ms. Desjardin in Carrie!

Pop quiz hot-shot, name one person who doesn't freaking love Judy Greer? BAM. That's what I thought, you can't. That's ok, I don't know any either. In fact I couldn't help but relay to Ms. Greer my excitement when I heard she was cast as the crucial role of Ms. Desjardin in Kimberley Pierce's CARRIE adaptation. It's not an easy role for an actress but a vital one, as she is often said...

Exclusive 1:1 interview with Danny Trejo, Alexa Vega, and Robert Rodriguez for Machete Kills!

If you aren't hip with Robert Rodriquez' style by now MACHETE KILLS is, by all accounts, as good as any film to start despite it being a sequel. You'd be hard pressed to find a filmmaker who has kept his "shoot from the hips" approach as fresh as it was when Robert shot EL MARIACHI more than twenty years ago. Even though this is the second MACHETE installment, I still get that giddy...

JoBlo.com goes into the Editing Room of The Wolverine!

“The first thing I wrote on the back of the script when Fox sent it to me was ’everyone I love will die.’ ” – James Mangold The road THE WOLVERINE has taken to 2013 has been long and reported… We know the headlines: Japan, Chris Claremont & Frank Miller , Aronofsky and then Mangold... Even with superhero adaptations continuing to be...

Exclusive Set Visit: Insidious Chapter 2

"I think this could be my last horror film." - James Wan “He tried to castrate himself…” “One more time Barbara,” James asks behind the monitor before setting up the camera to its original position. “A little slower.” The rig swings back to its mark and then glides along the dolly again as the camera captures the ruins of this abandoned hospital set before landing on...
