Now playing in theaters is director Paul W.S. Anderson’s disaster epic Pompeii.  The film stars Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) as an enslaved Celtic gladiator named Milo who falls in love with a noblewoman (Emily Browning) on the eve of a massive volcanic eruption that destroys Pompeii, an event that also brings him face-to-face with the man (Kiefer Sutherland) who slaughtered his family years earlier.  The film also stars Jared Harris, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Carrie-Anne Moss, Sasha Roiz, Jessica Lucas, and Paz Vega.

At the Los Angeles press day, I landed an exclusive video interview with Browning.  She talked about her reaction to the finished film, how Anderson likes to beat up his actors,if the script changed during production, what it was like being at Sundance for God Helps the Girl, and more.  Hit the jump for what she had to say.

Emily Browning:

  • What was her reaction to the finished film?
  • How Paul W.S. Anderson likes to beat up his actors.  Were there a few days of filming that were almost too much for her?
  • How much did the script change during production?
  • Talks about God Helps the Girl and what was it like being at Sundance?

    Pompe 2? Did anyone watch Pompe 1?

      I work at a movie theater, and I seriously had multiple customers ask me what “Pompe 2″ was about when looking at the banner.

        They should seriously rethink the design of the title. It is set in Roman times and obviously two I’s are easily can be considered as Roman number 2. It is really they fault.

    I always wondered how honest a cast is about their films. Now I firmly believe they are all pathological liars. I’ll be sure to make note of these actors words the next time they try to ‘sell’ a different ‘movie’ and just refer to this rubbish film. Honestly, when did an actors opinion of their own work sound like such a good idea? I mean are they honestly going to flat out admit what they did was pure crap? No. Then why bother at all. What a waste of peoples time essentially – and absolutely BORING.

    Save your money for 300 everyone.

      Did you just now figure this out? Every actor does this with pretty much every movie they’re in. If they talked crap about their movies then studios and directors would quickly stop hiring them.

      My friend, i totally agree with you! I can see the expression on the face of the actress and it seems that she is really trying hard to look excited about her work, but she can barely. She’s just acting (or trying to), but deep down she knows that this movie is so ridiculous that she can not even fake right, especially after reading the reviews, and she is only there because she had no choice in her career! I don’t know abou you, but sometimes it’s really funny to me see these actors embarassed!!
