With director Jonathan Liebesman’s Battle: Los Angeles opening this weekend, I got to speak with most of the cast at the Los Angeles press junket. As most of you know, the film tells the story of an alien invasion as seen through the eyes of a Marine platoon headed up by Aaron Eckhart. The film also stars Michelle Rodriguez, Bridget Moynahan, Michael Pena and Ramon Rodriguez. You can watch some clips and read the full synopsis here.
Anyway, every day this week I’ve been posting a different interview and today I’ve got Pena & Moynahan. In the film they play civilians that meet up with the Marines in Santa Monica. During the interview, they talked about filming the big action scenes, how the final film compared to what they thought it would be, and we goofed around by talking golf, karaoke and future projects. It was their last interview of the day and they were down for having fun. Hit the jump to watch:
Michael Pena and Bridget Moynahan
- Michael’s golf game
- I ask Moynahan if she really loves Karaoke
- How did the film turn out to what they thought going in
- What was it like to make the film and the big action set pieces
- What’s coming up on Blue Bloods and I ask Pena about Tower Heist and 30 Minutes or Less
