Tom Hanks: I won't give away movie secrets

Oct 9 2013, 10:20am CDT | by Bang Movies

Tom Hanks is keeping the method to his emotional acting a secret.

The 'Captain Phillips' star depicts the harrowing ordeal experienced by real life US sea captain Richard Phillips in the new thriller - which centres on the hijacking of the Maersk Alabama by Somali pirates in 2009 - but he is remaining tight-lipped about how he prepared for the film's dramatic and emotionally taxing conclusion.

He quipped: ''That's a secret. I'm not going to give that up. You go to a press conference with the people that run Coca Cola and ask for their secret formula, I'm sure they'd hand it right over to you!

''I like to consider myself some right of creative artist and professional. My job is to get there when the moment comes on the day.''

The 57-year-old star was speaking at a press conference ahead of the European premiere of 'Captain Phillips' in London's Leicester Square tonight (09.10.13). The big event will kick off the 57th annual BFI London Film Festival.

Many of the scenes in 'Captain Phillips' were filmed at sea to give the edge-of-your-seat thriller an authentic feel and director Paul Greengrass admits this presented some difficult challenges - such as a seasick crewmember vomiting on the lead actor.

He recalled: ''The worst [moment] was actually on the lifeboat. That was a truly horrendous experience. The first day we started shooting, Tom was in there with the four guys playing the pirates and Barry Ackroyd, the [director of photography] and focus puller, and [assistant director] Chris Carreras. I was in a little boat next door with a walkie talkie and I said to Chris, 'What's going on?' He said, 'Focus puller's not looking so good.' I said, 'I don't care, just shoot.' And he said, 'Focus puller's just thrown up all over Tom.' ''

By the time the next film from Steven Spielberg hits theaters, it will have been nearly three years since Lincoln hit theaters.

But Spielberg is hard at work on getting an untitled Cold War thriller off the ground, aiming to begin shooting this fall, with Tom Hanks reuniting with the ...

Real life jobs can be a real drag, such that it’s no surprise we often retreat into the world of film for escapism, and if the awesome explosions and brilliantly imaginative stories aren’t enough, you might end up wondering what it’d be like to live in this world; to walk around, talk to people, and even have a job.And I’m not talking about being a secretary at Stark Towers or something – though as far ...

SyFy’s ’12 Monkeys’ TV Series Trailer: I’ll Be Erased

Jul 16 2014 11:09pm CDT | Source: Screen Rant

Back in the 1990s, when superhero movies were mostly a punchline, Quentin Tarantino had really only two movies under his belt and the idea of Tom Hanks winning back-to-back Oscars seemed insane, the great Monty Python alum Terry Gilliam was still struggling to get his films made within the Hollywood studio system. Then came the 1995 film Twelve Monkeys. Based very loosely on a 1962 French short film called La Jetée, Twelve Monkeys followed an emotionally disturbed inmate fro ...
