- Kristen, you have almost affinity with your heroine Bella. How did you together survived the transformation from human to vampire?
"Normally, but it was a strange feeling. We were so long at the same time shooting two films that, for me they are merged. For the film-making process in the order of things to shoot a scene not in chronological order, so I tossed back and forth between Bella, the person Bella-vampire and Bella pregnant. There were so many different physical states of Bella, just drive you mad. I remember my first scene in which I play a vampire, because before I just looked at it, as did my friends on the site. Of course, I looked unconvincing, on the other hand, it is Bella the vampire has become my favorite way. She - a typical representative of the elders, the heads of the clan. She has an incredible intuition, almost on psychic level, what of it was not expected, and it is very interesting. Perhaps it is as something to do with Stephanie, because she obviously does not receive a significant share of respect due to her amazing abilities and talents. So, becoming a vampire, Bella gets what so long wished for, and the new status does not scare her. "
- Now you're busy on the set of film "Snow White and the Huntsman" in which Snow White appears as a hateful princess-warrior. What fighting style do you prefer?
"You know, it is difficult to play an "action heroine", which in combination is the most pitiful girl in the world. You can’t hate. You heal suffering heart. Snow White is a kind of last ray of hope for their land. She has divine, spiritual relationship with her people - she really gets into the essence of things - and so we like and do not want her to empathize. With this film I did a couple discoveries . I think if you care about other people's suffering, not just mentally put yourself in the shoes of the victims and then say, "Oh, my God, I feel so sorry for them." The meaning of your struggle is to eliminate the reason why people suffer. Most of all Snow White is struggling with evil - fighting with the most vile bastards, and it is reat when they die. It makes her suffer, suffer, literally. She does not find pleasure in that pain at least to someone else. I was physically exhausted and had recently thought, "Well, soon begin to shoot scenes of fighting, maybe it will not be so bad." But then I realized that these scenes are likely to be the most emotional and yet, because I, Snow White, kill people.
Cable channel AMC renewed for the third season its most successful TV series The Walking Dead, which came on the air only a week ago.

Creators of an ambitious project The Dark Tower cut the budget, a little redrew the script and it seems now everything is fine. I recall that initially to shoot the project (three films plus two season series) was going studio Universal, but then it refused to adapt the novel by Stephen King. Now one of the producers The Dark Tower said that the TV project has obtained its house in a face of HBO channel. Studio for feature film has not yet been found.
The premiere of series Boss, who has already renewed for a second season, at the channel Starz have watched 1,7 million viewers. The result, of course, is not outstanding, but quite normal.

Pierre Morel thriller "District 13" will turn into remake called "Brick Mansions". The movie script has been written by Luc Besson seven years ago with a view of American reality. David Bell, who played a major role in the original, will back in the English version together with Paul Walker.
The film was developed in Paris in 2010, which because of rampant crime, some very dangerous areas fenced off from the wealthier districts by a concrete wall. Behind the wall is thriving trade in arms and drugs, the schools and hospitals don’t work, the police protects only themselves, and a ball is ruled by gangs. The leader of one of them had acquired himself a neutron bomb, and to eliminate it, in the 13th District is sent special forces officer Damien. Damien together with Leyte (David Belle), whose sister kidnapped by the same gang leader, starts the war inside the district.
"District 13" was the directorial debut work of Pierre Morel. His second picture has become "Taken" thanks to which the director has received worldwide recognition.
City, where there will be actions of "Brick Mansions" is not yet known, but most likely it will be Chicago. Paul Walker plays undercover detective, searching for weapons of mass destruction, stolen by drug dealer of ghetto brick mansion. Detectives appealed for help to an expert on the region Lino (Belle), the only person who is not afraid of the bandits.
It is known that many Hollywood actors would get the role of Leno, but Luc Besson did not want to run a remake in production, if this role is played by David Belle, parkour founder of the global movement.
Remake is produced by Europa Corp, owned by Besson. While not called a name of director, but most likely it will be another protege of Luke.
Paul Walker will star in "Brick Mansions" before go to the set of "Fast and the Furious 6."
Adventure thriller "The Musketeers" of Paul W. S. Anderson has started in the U.S. last week, having collected only 8.8 million dollars at the moment. Film star Milla Jovovich in her Twitter has accused studio Summit in lack of advertising. The studio has answered.
On the way to Tokyo, where the "Musketeers" opens film festival, the actress wrote: "Today, in the U.S. will start "The Musketeers"! Do you think the audience knows about the film? Ask your friends! Do they know that this is a family movie?" Milla continued: “Does Summit generally advertise the film as an adventure and family? Or do they repose on their laurels after the "Twilight" and do not put any effort? Tell me!”
At this Milla has not stopped. "I think, Summit is trying to merge the beautiful rolling adventure family film "The Musketeers" in the U.S. SHAME, SUMMIT”. Then followed the next tweet: "The Musketeers"-entertaining movie for the whole family, nothing to do with "Resident Evil". People do not even know that they can take children with them at the cinemas".
The whole Friday evening Hollywood noised about words of Milla, well, Saturday morning studio Summit replied to Jovovich via the website Deadline.
"As far as we know, the actress was in Canada, where removed in the next part of "Resident Evil", working 15 hours a day and will likely not see an ad campaign of "Musketeers" in the U.S. She has no idea what she is talking about and we are not entirely clear what’s going on with her".
Representatives of the studio are a little upset with behavior of the star: "Oh she would call and say what she thinks."
"The Musketeers" earned a worldwide box office total of just over 73 million dollars. The budget belt is about 90 million. Critics have branded the film and an American audience is also not interested in adaptation of Dumas' books.
The European premiere of "Trishna" - so English Tess has been renamed on the Indian style by Winterbottom - was held in London on Saturday, October 22. It was found that between England and 19th century modern India there are much in common - scary industrialization, poverty, illiteracy and rural women and attitudes toward women as property.
Trishna played by Frieda Pinto - the girl from a poor village somewhere in the desert and barren Rajasthan. If in the original novel of Hardy, the whole story begins with the death of a horse, without which the family can’t subsist, then Winterbottom begins with an accident: a new jeep, driven by a drunken asleep Trishna’s father has faced with a truck. The father is in the hospital, the girl impose plaster. The jeep is in loan and the family has to pay a lot of money for it. About the incident finds a new friend of Trishna - Jay, son of hotel mogul, who lived all his life in the UK and came to India with his friends.
He offers Trishna to work in a hotel of his father in Jaipur.
And then the story develops almost like in Hardy - Jay seduces inexperienced and unable to resist girl, she first goes back home, but then again returns to her seducer. But Winterbottom removed from the plot of another goodie - Angel.
"The Hardy has clear distinction between physical and spiritual. It is too simple, I wanted to connect the two sides in one person - told of his decision director and screenwriter Winterbottom at a press conference. - And I thought that Riz Ahmed will be able to convey this complexity. Generally, there was no casting. I immediately offered the roles to Robe and Frida, and then I just had to convince them to act. "
Passivity of then Tess and today Trishna invariably raises the question of emancipated from the spectators: why does not she break the vicious circle, when she starts to be used as a sex toy?
"She has a hope- say for her heroine Frieda Pinto. - She hopes that Jay will change and become the same as he was - who loves her. And then, she has no choice - it is already committed to one man and can’t return home. "
"Jay for me - not an Indian, namely, a Briton who moved to India as a tourist. He is the son of a rich man, he still gets everything very easily and he is spoiled by luxury. He simply did not have the imagination to imagine what might have Trishna. This, I would say the quality of British"- shared his vision Winterbottom.
This is the third film adaptation of Hardy's works on the account of the British film director.
Clive Owen in an interview with PARADE told how he filmed in an international spy thriller “The Killer Elite" and about how to play such a legendary personality, as Ernest Hemingway.
- Before shooting in "The Killer Elite" You're already familiar with some former members of the Special Air Service of British Crown (SAS)? How did this happen?
Some of them worked in private protection, and it happened that we met with them. They do not work for me, but for my friends and I’ve made friends with them.
- Did they give you some advice, tips for the role?
Talking to these guys, you notice that they are very restrained and never protrude. The more serious the situation is, the less you can learn about it from their faces. Nothing is impossible to demonstrate and show any emotion. All the even more serious than I now talking about. I played a man obsessed with rage, resentment and anger. My hero was no longer able to serve, and that's all that was able to do in life. He dreamed of to return to his job, and he did it.
- Your character has a luxurious mustache ...
It's very simple: when I saw the photos of those times, every spy in Britain had such a mustache. I am a big football fan, and so, and all the players were completely baleen. All! And mustaches at that time were just huge.
- Were they a real one?
Yes, You think I pasted them?
- And your wife liked them?
Of course not!
- Your fight scenes with Jason are very brutal. Have there been some accidental injuries, bruises?
No, in this is the whole charm of work with Jason. He is incredibly technically literate and talented in this area. When you're filming the scenes of battle, you want them to be realistic. You rehearse it from beginning to the end, to make sure that you feel comfortable throughout the fight, and then worked out every movement to make them look as natural as possible.
- Did you perform all the tricks by yourself?
Oh, yes. I think it's important, because it's my job. I do not want to do it for me by someone else. I'm an actor, and I have to do my work as good as it is possible.
- You play Ernest Hemingway in the new series "Hemingway and Gellhorn." Tell us a little about it.
This project - a fantasy, I had the opportunity to immerse in the work, literally and figuratively. I visited the same places that Hemingway. I went to Paris, to Cuba. I really liked it and I had a great time. Oh, and enjoy working with Nicole Kidman. In addition, the script is just wonderful.
- What will we learn new about Hemingway in this movie?
This is the show about the period when Hemingway met March Gellhorn. Their relationship began during the Spanish Civil War. March was a war correspondent, they fell in love, and he left his wife. Gellhorn was a very serious journalist and persuaded Hemingway to go with her to China. Then they went to Cuba and bought a house there. Throughout the film we follow the development of their relationship, which lasted 7 years, by the end of which March has more and more immersed in the work. Our film about how they pulled together, and then slowly moved away from each other.
- What did you personally know about Hemingway, working on the role?
I had no idea about how much he has traveled. In the 19 years he lived in Italy, volunteered for the front and was wounded. At that time? It's hard to believe. Africa, China, Cuba, Paris. The incredible biography.
In an interview with James Cameron TheWrap spoke about his desire for a wholesale rewrite Studios Hollywood classics in three-dimensional format, as well as about the upcoming re-release of "Titanic." And, of course, the impending fate of the "Avatar".
The question of processing of many famous Hollywood hits of the past in 3D has become incredibly relevant after the recent box-office success of the new animated film "The Lion King", who headed the U.S. box office. "Studios see a huge potential in this, plus there's a little healthy greed - and leave any doubt," - comments director.
But he demands that the 3D in such cases will have the highest quality, for which it should be developed for a long time. Cameron has spent a year to remake "Titanic" in 3D and will show it in April of 2012. Examples of rapid conversion, the author of "Avatar" refers to 2,5D and believes that the costs of such a spectacle should be similar to the price of a ticket to a regular session.
Fast conversion, according to Cameron, does not provide the desired effect, but when a 3D movie done right, "it is excellent." Cameron is not against remakes of classic films into 3D formats, but insists on the thoroughness of the process and the involvement of the authors of the paintings in control over the process.
Also Cameron has added that plans to hold a mythical Pandora's forests at least four years, making sure that the following two "Avatar" will be made the right way, as far as possible.
In addition, the filmmaker has made it clear his future project with Disney, who decided to do theme park rides in the universe of "Avatar" at Disneyland, and plans to begin construction in 2013. The director said that the basis for the project will need all three films in the franchise, only two of which are being prepared for production.
In the meantime, this issue is only in the preliminary stages, but Cameron personally follows up on aspects such as the design itself and the surrounding attractions, visiting the construction site.
Full-length version of the series "Twilight Zone" will not look like its predecessor in 1983, where four different directors have filmed four different stories. Warner plans to focus on one subject and to invite the eminent director. Among the major candidates are Christopher Nolan, Michael Bay and Alfonso Cuaron.
Warner owns all rights to the series, which went on U.S. television from 1959 to 1964. Among about 155 episodes left for this time, there were stories about giant man-eating aliens, of a certain community in which all the great thought ugly, and Contact Cleaners, won power three hundred people. Full-length "Twilight Zone" in the early '80s shot John Dante, John Landis, George Miller and Steven Spielberg, but the film has collected very modest cash at the box office.
Attempts to start another film version were made long ago. The last of these is dated 2008. Then the "Twilight Zone" company interested Leonardo DiCaprio, Appian Way, but since the film did not hear. In parallel, the project has started about the creator of the series Serlinge Rode, but film version of the show, until recently, has become the heroine of the news.
Now, sources say, the leading candidate in the director's chair of the project is Christopher Nolan. But despite the good relationship of studio with Nolan, the director may refuse for two reasons: lack of time or similarity of the scenario of "Twilight Zone" with his film "Inception".
If the movie will shoot Michael Bay, for the director of "Transformers" it will be the first experience with Warner. The same sources claim that Bay really likes the script of Jason Rotenberg, but the only obstacle to the "Twilight Zone" could be a project evaluation of Bay - a black comedy about a bodybuilders “Pain and Gain”.
Alfonso Cuaron is now finalizing his protracted "Gravity", after which director is completely free.
In addition to three directors Warner is eyeing the other directors. Among them are David Yates and Rupert Wyatt, whose "Rise of the planet's of the apes," unexpectedly became a hit at world cinemas, gathered over 400 million dollars box office.
With the successful launch of the "Lion King" in 3D Studio Disney announced about coming release of its other classic cartoon with three-dimensional images. "Beauty and the Beast," "Finding Nemo," "Monsters Inc." and "The Little Mermaid" will receive a new life on the big screen.
"The Lion King" in 3D has earned in the U.S. box office for 80 million dollars. The reason for this success is called artful studio practice to limit DVD-releases of its films. "The Lion King" for some time now is not available on digital media, so parents were happy to take their children to the cinema on classic cartoon. In addition, in September U.S. release was short of pictures for family viewing than Disney and benefited.
The absence in January release of the new family film, prompting the studio to plan edition of "Beauty and the Beast" in 3D for January 13, 2012. “Finding Nemo” will begin in September 14, 2012-th, while “Monsters” will scare kids in January 18, 2013 on the eve of the premiere summer sequel. Finally, “The Little Mermaid 3D" will be in U.S. cinemas in September 13, 2013.
Conversion of "Beauty and the Beast" in 3D-format has already been completed. Originally scheduled for release before the cartoon "King Lion", but limited to a two-week show at the Hollywood cinema "El Capitan" followed by a wide release in January 2012.
Typically, the process of converting an ordinary film into 3D format takes five to eight weeks - this is depending on the length and complexity of the film. Given that the film "Beauty and the Beast" is ready, the studio can work quietly on "Finding Nemo."
In the future, the viewer expects an influx of old movies in the new format. In April we will be able to see "Titanic" of James Cameron, spending much more time to convert than other companies.
But before Cameron, his new version of the old movie will show George Lucas. What will be the first episode of "Star Wars", an American viewer will learn in February 2012. If these films do good box office in a few months of new releases will have to push in a rolling schedule with proven hits in 3D.
In an interview with the resource Moviefone the star of "Transformers" Megan Fox was talking about her love to Shia LaBeouf, his public image and a new film with her participation - "Friends with children", which was shown as part of the International Film Festival in Toronto.
- I liked the movie and your character. She is not like a bitch.
It's true. It is certainly not an absolute cutie, but not a complete bitch. Otherwise, she would not the hero Adam. There would be no meaning in their couple".
- Watching your career, it seems to me that at this point it is a good role for you...
I have already been said about this. I understand what you mean, I think I understand.
- This role makes you a ...
Makes me look like a human?
- Well, I would not speak so harshly. But after all those events with you in the past, you are currently starring in the role of an ordinary person in the cast. Do you agree?
- That was your plan?
I always wanted to be a part of the ensemble. Besides the fact that you feel supported by my colleagues, I think, much more fun to work with the company. When people are busy with one common task, they are responsible for its execution in equal measure. Besides the fact that Jen wrote the script for the film, she was also director and she starred in it. She had almost everything to shoulder. But it seems to me to work in such films is very interesting ... at least to me.
- In the recent interview with LaBeouf and the situation with "Transformers 3", why do you keep silent and not defend yourself?
I did not say anything while they were on a promo tour, because I did not want to water them with dirt. I do not want to hurt the film. Besides, I love Shia. It was important that the film had success for him. I did not want to contrive this big war in the media, which would have been stupid, and put to me selfish, trying to attract attention. Of course, there will be moments when I’ll want to tell my version of the story. I just found it inappropriate to do this at a time when they were in a promotional tour.
- You say it was a bad situation for you?
Yes. For example, the official reason for my lack of participation in the project sounded like: "She tries to get away from the film". So the best solution in this situation was to let them say what they were going to say.
- Tell me, have you seen “Transformers 3”?
Not yet, but be sure to take a look. You know, if I were not so much busy during the tour, I would definitely go to the movie. But I was sick at the thought of how I'm sitting in a cinema packed to capacity. And I did not go. But I have nothing against the film, and I love Shia very much; love him unconditionally. I love the team, I almost use the same makeup, wardrobe and hair in real life, which I invented for the film. I want to watch a movie also in gratitude to these people. I know the movie is good! I've seen the trailers and watching one of them exclaimed, "Oh shit! Cool!" So I think I would get great pleasure from watching.
- I see headlines in the blog: "Megan Fox is watching "Transformers 3"!
I can’t do it. This all will end that they will write as I went to the cinema not to see the movie, and that they all saw as I went there. So I just buy a movie on the disc and see it at home.
- Have you finished filming in "The Dictator"?
Yes, the shooting ended, and the film is supposed to be very funny. I'm not talking about my role, I'm talking about the film as a whole. Sasha is great.
- So, your future - is a comedy?
We'll see (laughs).
