[INTERVIEW] How ‘THE LION KING’ director Jon Favreau captured actors performances in a virtual world
Director Jon Favreau had a big task of re-imagining the world of THE LION KING. Lucky for him, he had a fantastic team of collaborators to help him deliver the magic.
In a summer where several sequels and remakes have been either poorly received or bombed with audiences, there is ‘STUBER’ – an action comedy that’s not nearly as miserable as its title.
Preston Barta of Fresh Fiction sat down with ‘STUBER’ stars Dave Bautista and Kumail Nanjiani recently to discuss how they developed the film’s comedy, tone and characters.
THE LION KING has been remade as a computer animated, VR-driven feature. But does it compare to its 1994 award-winning predecessor?
Actor David Harbour, who plays Chief Jim Hopper in the Netflix series ‘STRANGER THINGS,’ spoke with us about season three. Sporting a magnificent beard and drinking a hot cup of coffee at the Joule hotel’s lobby bar in Dallas, Harbour explores character growth, his creative process and Hopper’s new look.
To lay out MIDSOMMAR’s palette of wickedness, actor Jack Reynor (FREE FIRE, SING STREET) details his experience from the moment he read Aster’s script to the finished result when he could sit back and analyze the impact the film could have on audiences.
‘MIDSOMMAR’ feels as if a satanic eye sits at [director Ari Aster’s] shoulder, nudging him further into the dark. It’s a devilish horror feast about codependency. Florence Pugh gives a performance that absolutely slays.
