Interview: Domhnall Gleeson For Anna Karenina

Domhnall-Gleeson-in-Anna-Karenina-4

***THIS INTERVIEW WAS ORIGINALLY POSTED ON HEYUGUYS TO COINCIDE WITH ANNA KARENINA’S DVD AND BLU-RAY RELEASE, HERE***

2012 was quite a year for Domhnall Gleeson. Alongside his BIFA nomination and theatrical releases of Dredd and Shadow Dancer, Anna Karenina finally gave him a more significant post-Harry Potter role after brilliant turns in True Grit and Never Let Me Go.

With 2013 seeing him star opposite Michael Fassbender and Rachel McAdams in Frank and About Time, as well as starring in Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror alongside Hayley Atwell, this rising star deserves to be recognised as far more than just ‘Brendan Gleeson’s son’.

Incredibly fun to talk to, with a contagious passion for his art, Domhnall speaks about wanting to work with the cast of The Master, his longing to feature in a film noir and why he’s glad the team behind Anna Karenina didn’t let him keep his scythe at the end of filming. Continue reading

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.

Forget The Artist Winning Best Picture Last Sunday – Here’s My Top Ten Films Of 2011

I am well aware that everybody else posted their ‘Best Of 2011’ lists at, well, the end of 2011 or back in January, but I wanted to be a little different. Mainly because I still had a fair few films to catch up on and because I wanted to compare my list to what the Academy deemed ‘fit’ and what eventually won.

So, finally, I present to you my Top Ten Films Of 2011. And when I say ‘Top Ten’, I mean what I enjoyed most as opposed to what I think I should say to be congratulated on. No, this is my Top Ten and simply that. And I’m pretty sure a lot of you won’t see my #1 coming – unless you follow me on Twitter (@iamnotwaynegale) in which case you’ve probably known for a while!

So, as usual, please leave comments if you want to argue this thing out – you’ll definitely realise I’m a sucker for big performances as opposed to big films – and check out my Top Ten below, starting with the films that didn’t quite make the cut: Continue reading
