With director Craig Gillespie’s The Finest Hours opening in theaters this weekend, I recently sat down with two of the stars of the film, Chris Pine and Ben Foster. They talked about memorable moments from filming, how the film is old school Hollywood with fantastic modern visual effects, and you can watch as I try to get Foster to talk about Duncan Jones’ Warcraft and Pine on Wonder Woman plus if he was ever offered a role in Green Lantern Corps.
The Finest Hours is based on the Michael J. Tougias and Casey Sherman book of the same name, which tells the true story of Coast Guard Captain Bernie Webber (Pine) and his crew. When a massive nor’easter hits the Eastern seaboard in February 1952, it tears a T-2 oil tanker in half and Webber and his three-man team must set out in a wooden lifeboat in dangerous conditions to rescue the stranded sailors. The film also stars Casey Affleck, Holliday Grainger, John Ortiz and Eric Bana,
Check out what Pine and Foster had to say below and look for more video interviews soon.
