When you sit down to conduct an interview with someone, you never know what’s going to happen. Sometimes, you can have the best questions, yet the interview is boring. Other times, you can walk in with nothing prepared, and the interview is amazing. It all depends on the person you’re speaking to and how interested they are in talking.
So when I walked in to interview Amanda Peet as a reporter for our partners at Omelete, I had a few questions ready, but was prepared for anything. And thank God I was, because the interview you’re about to watch is one of the craziest I have ever done for a major movie release as we did not talk about the movie once! Keep in mind I tried…but when I attempted to ask a 2012 question, she just wasn’t having it. So instead of talking about John Cusack or Roland Emmerich, we discussed Brazil and the differences between Twitter and Facebook. Seriously. While you’re not going to learn anything about 2012 in this interview, I suggest watching it just to see how crazy this conversation was. Hit the jump to check it out.
Finally, as I’ve written before every interview, 2012 opens tomorrow and as most of you have seen in commercials and trailers, it’s about a global cataclysm that causes massive destruction to our planet. If you’re keeping count, this is Emmerich’s third time blowing up our planet (Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow) and I think he’s learned from his previous efforts to deliver his biggest spectacle yet. Trust me, this movie is loaded with some of the craziest special effects you’ll see this year and if you want to have some fun, hit a movie theater this weekend.
