Jodie Foster Exclusive Video Interview NIM’S ISLAND

     April 1, 2008

Opening this Friday is the fantasy/adventure movie “Nim’s Island.” The movie is based on the popular book of the same name and it stars Jodie Foster, Abigail Breslin and Gerard Butler. Here’s the synopsis:

Anything can happen on Nim’s Island, a magical place ruled by a young girl’s (Abigail Breslin) imagination. It is an existence that mirrors that of her favorite literary character, Alex Rover- the world’s greatest adventurer. But Alexandra (Jodie Foster), the author of the Rover books, leads a reclusive life in the big city. When Nim’s father (Gerard Butler) goes missing from their island, a twist of fate brings her together with Alexandra. Now, they must draw courage from their fictional hero, Alex Rover, and find strength in one another to conquer Nim’s Island.

So to help promote the film, I recently got to attend the international press day as a representative of our partner website Omelete. And for those that don’t know…when we post videos on Collider they are always tagged with two logos – Collider’s and Omelete’s. That’s because our two sites are partners and whenever we get anything on Collider they use it on Omelete and vice versa. It’s a great marriage and one that’s benefitted both sites and audiences.

Anyway, about the interview with Jodie Foster….

During my five or so minutes we talked about if she’s ever been to Brazil (I asked for Omelete) and all the normal things you’d ask at a junket. As usual, I listed what we talked about above the interview. Finally, click here to watch some movie clips from “Nim’s Island.”
