Director Kenneth Branagh Talks About "Thor" 


Director Kenneth Branagh Talks About "Thor"
It was truly a blessing meeting Kenneth Branagh, the Shakespearan expert who's making his superhero movie for the very first time! Branagh made the material work! His knowledge of characterizations and pacing did wonders for "Thor!" In this interview, we talked about:

Why he's a god in my book
How was he able to make a big blockbuster!
The big action scenes versus the smaller, quieter moments in "Thor"
How he balanced the big and the small scenes
How he zeroed in on Chris Hemsworth to play his Nordic god
"Thor" is steeped in Shakespearean tropes, is that why Branagh was interested in making the movie?
Fritz Lang would have been proud with his set design -- what/who were his other influences?

“Something Borrowed” Interview with Kate Hudson and Colin Egglesfield 


“Something Borrowed,” the movie, is a smart romantic comedy with the right mixture of edge and fun. Bringing the zaniness is Kate Hudson as Darcy, Rachel’s (Ginnifer Goodwin) impetuous and somewhat selfish best friend. Darcy is engaged to Dex (Colin Egglesfield) who is in love with his law school friend, Rachel. In this interview, we talked about:

*** Why you would like the film even if you’re not a “chick flick” fan
*** What attracted them to making the movie?
*** Hilary Swank as one of the producers of the film
*** How Kate straddles to find the fine line between her character’s likability and innate bitchiness!
*** The film is ultimately about regrets and living life to the fullest, are they living their lives to the fullest right now?

HAVE FUN!!!



Here's more info on "Something Borrowed" from Yahoo:

Rachel is a talented attorney at a top New York law firm, a generous and loyal friend and, unhappily, still single as her engaged best friend Darcy is constantly reminding her. But after one drink too many at her 30th birthday party, perpetual good girl Rachel unexpectedly ends up in bed with the guy she's had a crush on since law school, Dex, who just happens to be Darcy's fiance. When Rachel and Darcy's lifelong friendship collides with true love, it leads to unexpected complications and potentially explosive romantic revelations. Meanwhile, Ethan, who has been Rachel's constant confidante and sometimes conscience, has been harboring a secret of his own, and Marcus, an irrepressible womanizer, can't keep his mind out of the gutter or his hands off any girl within reach.
