Jessica Chastain: Mama is terrifying

Jan 18 2013, 12:16am CST | by

Jessica Chastain was terrified watching herself in 'Mama'.

The Golden Globe winner - who picked up the Best Actress gong for 'Zero Dark Thirty' on Sunday (13.01.13) - confessed her new indie horror movie is so nail-bitingly scary that she even upset herself watching it on the big screen, while her friend was reduced to a nervous wreck beside her.

The 31-year-old star plays Annabel, whose boyfriend Lucas (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) takes in his orphaned nieces only to discover a jealous ghostly presence has followed them into their home.

Jessica laughed: ''When Annabel first meets Mama, that's really like, 'Oh my GOD!' I saw it with a friend of mine and he jumped, then he jumped again, and then he almost curled into my lap. I was laughing the whole time because I've never seen a guy do something like that.

''But that scene, it's not like it's just one jump, it keeps going - it's pretty incredible that whole sequence.''

The actress revealed that the biggest draw to working on Andy Muschietti's film was the chance to learn from inspirational executive producer, horror veteran Guillermo del Toro.

She said: ''Guillermo, he's really passionate about this genre, and visually, he has just brilliant ideas. It was exciting as I'm such a fan of 'Pan's Labyrinth' and 'Hellboy,' so to be involved in something that he was working on was fantastic - it was part of the main reason I did 'Mama.'

''He's so intelligent and insightful about the genre, I learnt so much from him. For me, the great thing about this film is that it's a mixture of genres. Yes it's a horror film, but it's also like a Grimm's fairy tale, it's fantasy, and it's also a drama.''

New Extended TV Spot for Interstellar

Aug 27 2014 11:02am CDT | Source: beyond hollywood

Check out a new minute-long TV spot for Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar.” I don’t think there’s anything here you haven’t seen already in the previous trailers, but hey, it’s Nolan and it’s sci-fi, and those are two of my favorite things these days. Take a look, take a lookers. Starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow, Michael Caine, Casey Affleck, and Wes ...

New TV spot arrives for Interstellar: watch now

Aug 27 2014 1:45am CDT | Source: Total Film

Warner Bros. has released a new TV spot to promote Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, in which Matthew McConaughey leads a team of astronauts on an Earth-saving mission to space. Saving humanity from extinction is the name of the game, so stakes are suitably high for what looks like another grandstanding piece of filmmaking from Nolan. Expect goosebumps aplenty… This latest spot doesn’t contain much in the way of new footage, but as a sixty-second adrenaline hit, it works very nicely indeed. ...

INTERSTELLAR TV Spot Repurposes Old Trailer Footage to Remind You That This Movie Will Probably Be Good

Aug 26 2014 4:56pm CDT | Source: Collider

Warner Bros. has released a “new” Interstellar TV spot for writer/director Christopher Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi film.  The spot doesn’t actually contain any new footage, but instead just repurposes footage from the latest trailer in a new 60-second cut—and that’s fine by me.  Nolan usually does a fine job of keeping the major aspects of his films out of the trailers, but even The Dark Knight Rises wasn’t immune to WB’s need to show footage from the third act in the trailers ...

New ‘Interstellar’ IMAX TV Spot Looks Absolutely Stellar

Aug 26 2014 12:15pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

It almost seems a shame to post the new Interstellar IMAX TV spot here at /Film, because this is so obviously the kind of film that begs to be seen on the biggest screen possible. On the other hand, though, if sharing a dinky YouTube preview is what it takes to get people to see the full movie in a proper IMAX theater, then the net effect of that will be good. Besides, we admit, it’s just really hard to resist taking a peek at Christopher Nol ...
