The crime thriller Deadfall tells the story of siblings Addison (Eric Bana) and Liza (Olivia Wilde), who get in a car accident after a casino heist gone wrong and decide to split up to make a run for the Canadian border during a Thanksgiving blizzard. While Addison is creating mayhem, Liza is picked up by ex-boxer Jay (Charlie Hunnam), who’s looking to make amends with his parents over a dinner that will push the bonds of family to the limit.

At the film’s press day, actor Charlie Hunnam spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about what attracted him to this film, living like a boxer for five weeks to prepare, and what he liked about the unique duality of the storytelling. He also talked about how he feels about Jax Teller’s darker journey on Season 5 of Sons of Anarchy and how the loss of Opie (and Ryan Hurst, as an actor on the series) really affected things, that he hasn’t gotten to see any more footage of Pacific Rim yet but that director Guillermo del Toro says that it’s 10 times better than anything he’s ever directed, and how he’s taking this six-month hiatus to write a film based on a true story that he owns the rights to, about a young man who, after an unfortunate circumstance, found himself running the third biggest drug cartel in Mexico. Check out what he had to say after the jump.

At the film’s press day, actor Eric Bana spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about why this character stood out to him, what he liked about this unique story structure, how they determined the history of what happened to these siblings prior to when you meet them in the film, and how he viewed the unhealthy dynamic between Addison and Liza. He also talked about what attracts him to a project, why he wanted to work with Peter Berg on Lone Survivor (based on SEAL Team 10′s failed June 28, 2005 mission “Operation Red Wing,” to capture or kill a notorious Taliban leader), and why he wanted to do Beware the Night (about a New York policeman who investigates cases of demon possessions, exorcisms and werewolves) as his next film.

Four Minutes of Nicolas Cage Losing His Shit

Editor Harry Hanrahan previously brought us such great compilations as the The 100 Greatest Movie Insults and The 160 Greatest Arnold Schwarzenegger Quotes of All Time.  He has now compiled a four-minute tribute to Nicolas Cage losing his shit.  I was shocked as well: there’s only four minutes worth of material?  Perhaps percenatage-wise, Cage gives more subdued performances than I give him credit for.  Or perhaps Hanrahan missed some good bits (notably absent is Big Daddy unintelligibly screaming instructions at Hit Girl in Kick-Ass).  Still, if you like your Nic Cage over the top (and really, who doesn’t?), then you’ll want to hit the jump and check out the video.  Hanrahan leaves us with one of the questions for the ages: was Cage crazier in Vampire’s Kiss or The Wicker Man?
