Last night in Hollywood, IFC Films and Paramount held a party for Richard Linklater’s Boyhood to celebrate its Blu-ray/DVD release and to let the cast and filmmakers mingle with Oscar voters. Based on how crowded the event was and how many people I heard saying “Best Picture,” I think the evening was a huge success for all involved.
Shortly before the event started, I landed an exclusive video interview with Ethan Hawke on the red carpet. Besides talking about what the last year has been like since premiering Boyhood at Sundance and future projects like Good Kill, Ten Thousand Saints, and Ti West’s In the Valley of Violence, he revealed some awesome news: Criterion is trying to get the rights to the Before Sunrise trilogy to do a box set of all three films (Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, Before Midnight)! As a huge fan of the trilogy, I cannot wait to give Criterion my money. Hit the jump for what he had to say.
