Jessica Chastain's smart character

Feb 9 2013, 4:04am CST | by

Jessica Chastain's 'Zero Dark Thirty' character is always the ''smartest person in the room''.

The 31-year-old star plays feisty CIA agent Maya in the new movie about the death of Osama Bin Laden and Jessica admitted she was drawn to the character's intelligence.

She told People magazine: ''I thought, 'She's the smartest person in the room and she's probably always been the smartest person in the room. When you're like that you don't really make friends very easily.''

Jessica recently admitted working on the movie was ''very intense'' and she struggled with some of the dialogue.

She said: ''It was a very intense role and a lot of responsibility. It creates a conversation based on a current event; a dialogue about the time we're living in. It wasn't tense between [any of the actors], but we definitely had some tension in that there was a lot of guerrilla-style film making.

''The dialogue was very difficult. There's a lot of Arabic names, a lot of CIA jargon and facts.''

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 im ...

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 Christop ...
