The sci-fi thriller After, from writer/director Ryan Smith, tells the story of two bus crash survivors, Freddy (Steven Strait) and Ana (Karolina Wydra), who awake to discover that they are the only people left in their small town. As strange events begin to unfold, they form an unlikely alliance and start to question whether the town they know so well is really what it seems, or if there is something else behind what is happening to them.
During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Steven Strait talked about how he came to be involved with the film, what drew him to the story and character, the experience of collaborating with both his director and co-star, and how fun and liberating it is to work with green screen. He also talked about what fans can expect from Season 2 of his Starz drama series Magic City, and how much he’s been enjoying the luxury of getting to explore a character in the long-term. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
CinemaCon (formerly ShoWest) begins tomorrow in Las Vegas. If you haven’t heard of CinemaCon, it’s a convention for theater owners and operators to see what’s new in their industry and be wined and dined by the Hollywood Studios. It’s essentially Comic-Con for people that make big decisions in the movie industry.
In the coming days I’ll be watching tons of footage from many upcoming movies and I’ll try and report what I see. Occasionally they ask us not to say anything, but whenever I can, you can expect video blogs and written reports. Until then, I managed to snap pictures of the movie posters, standee’s, and escalator artwork that’s on display at the Convention. Included are new posters for Friends With Benefits, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, Larry Crowne and After. I’ve also got pictures of new banners including Super 8, Captain America: The First Avenger, One Day, Warrior, Bad Teacher, and a DreamWorks one that includes The Help, Fright Night, Real Steel and War Horse. Hit the jump to check them out.
