    Photos

    Thanks so much for the photos. A radically different look for Matt, I love it! Very barbarian-ish. I marvel at the capacity of actors to go so quickly from one character to another. From Mark Watnet to this is doubtless a biiiiiiig stretch.

    Whether or not this movie is a success, Matt and his family will certainly have had an amazing experience.

    Re: Photos, Pedro Pascal

    It's going to be a fun but challenging shoot I would guess.

    We can get some idea of what's going on through Pedro Pascal's Instagram and Twitter. He posted a pic of their scripts on the first day of the shoot.

    The working title is obviously 'Monolith'.

    What is Willem Is marking with all those colored dividers? Scenes? His lines? His character's emotions? Blue for sad, yellow for happy, red for angry? Ha.

    Pearl Street producing Apostle Paul?

    When I saw this headline I wondered if it was an April Fool's joke. Matt and Ben making a movie w/ Hugh Jackman as the apostle? It is an amazing story, of course. But...?

    The Martian trailer?

    Does anyone has ever watched this? And yet it was posted on Feb.13th and 17th:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_yLngYRUdtQ

    If they are real teaser and trailer, it's very beautiful. Can't wait to see the movie.

    About the "Apostle paul", I also read this news and it felt weird to me! I didn't think to an april joke but il looks like ! Why not?

    interstellar


    in other news, Interstellar is out on DVD!! Target stores are selling a steel book case in the states and inside each one comes a collectible IMAX film cell from an actual 70MM film print. I got a slide of Casey Affleck, but if you go on Instagram you can find ones of Matt! Quite cool
