Interview: Phil Lord And Chris Miller Talk 21 Jump Street And The Lego Movie As ‘Inception For Kids’ – HeyUGuys

To celebrate the release of 21 Jump Street on DVD and Blu-ray, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to speak to the directors, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, about the film and their upcoming projects.

Touching on everything from Channing Tatum’s love for improvising stunts to Tom Selleck’s moustache, it’s fair to say our interview covered rather a lot of ground! Every inch as charming and entertaining as you’d expect, the pair gave a brilliant insight into the funniest film of the year.

Edinburgh International Film Festival 2012 Coverage

With an arm that was just out of a cast and a laptop that decided to give up on me a little too far before the halfway mark for comfort, the 66th Edinburgh International Film Festival may have had a few too many hiccups along the way in regards to my coverage, but the Festival itself was a resounding success. And, when the news was announced yesterday that Artistic Director Chris Fujiwara has committed his services for a further three years, there was not a bad word to be said.

With the return of the Michael Powell and International Awards and two big Red Carpet Galas in the form of William Friedkin’s Killer Joe and Disney Pixar’s Brave, Fujiwara has set himself an incredibly high bar, but one that he is surely ready (and more than able) to contend with. After all, there is a reason he’s referred to as The Mighty Fujiwara.

To check out what coverage was salvageable from my now wreck of a Mac, including interviews from the Brave Red Carpet, just click here.
