It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve spoken to a filmmaker about his or her project(s), I always find what they have to say interesting.

My latest interview with Steven Molony and Dan Glaser who co-wrote Valley of Bones and Glaser directed it. It’s the biggest project they have worked together on. The film opens in about 300 theaters on September 1.

I also caught up with actor Rhys Coiro, who plays Nate in the film. He told us how he became part of this project and the many things he has in the works.

We had some chatty conversations with them. Now listen in on it.

The plot: Set in the oil-rich Badlands of western North Dakota. Anna (Autumn Reeser), a single mother and paleontologist, and McCoy (Steven Molony), a meth-addicted oil worker, form an unlikely bond as they both struggle to make amends for their criminal pasts. Their hopes lay in the form of a monumental T. rex fossil, the discovery potentially worth millions.

Also starring Mason Mahay, Alexandra Billings, Bill Smitrovich, and Mark Margolis.

Blade Runner 2049 Prequel Short Film!

Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana De Armas, MacKenzie Davis, Sylvia Hoeks, Lennie James, Carla Juri, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Jared Leto, Ridley Scott, Denis Villeneuve, Blade Runner 2049Blade Runner 2049 short film reveals what happened in 2036.

Collider is happy to exclusively premiere a Blade Runner 2049 prequel short film “in-world” piece that explains what happened in the world of Blade Runner between the first movie, set in 2019, and this sequel, set in 2049. The short film Nexus: 2036 takes place in the year 2036 and revolves around Jared Leto’s character, Niander Wallace. In this short, directed by Luke Scott (Morgan), Wallace introduces a new line of “perfected” replicants called the Nexus 9, seeking to get the prohibition on replicants repealed. This no doubt has serious ramifications that will be crucial to the plot of Blade Runner 2049.

In January. It had been a while since we had spoken to Genesis Rodriguez and we got to catch up with her at the Winter TCA. She’s on the new ABC series, Time After Time. She said this was a dream role and that her sci-fi geekness was waiting to break out—plus her plans for the near future—finding an indie film to be part of.

The Tick on Amazon Prime

The Tick, Amazon PrimeThe Tick launches on August 25 on Amazon Prime Video and it looks and sounds different than the previous incarnations of the Tick.

The plot: In a workaday world where superheroes fly among us, mild-mannered accountant Arthur Everest (Griffin Newman) suspects The City is controlled by a fabled villain known as The Terror (Jackie Earle Haley), despite evidence of The Terror’s death 15 years ago. Arthur has a traumatic connection with The Terror, whose movements he has obsessively tracked since childhood. Arthur’s sister, Dot (Valorie Curry), is a paramedic who dotes on her brother but also provides a sibling’s tough love. The more he talks about super-villain super-conspiracies, the more she warns him to “keep it real.”

Fate soon brings Arthur together with a tall, verbally adroit muscleman with superpowers and a mysterious past: The Tick (Peter Serafinowicz). As they investigate the mystery surrounding The Terror, they draw attention from the electrifying enigma known as Miss Lint (Yara Martinez) and a hyper-violent vigilante named Overkill (Scott Speiser), confronting the complexity of the struggle between good and evil. 

The Tick launches on Amazon Prime Video, August 25.

He also told us about some of the fun things we’ll find on the Blu-ray/DVD. You can listen to him and watch him do the sexy lover walk.

We thought we would re-share our April 2017 post with other cast members for you to enjoy if you missed it. — A.O.

Eugenio Derbez is back with a new comedy in which he wares two hats, producer and star. They are some funny stuff in this film—Derbez is Derbez and it’s all about family.

Raphael Alejandro

Some great talent, like the young Raphael Alejandro, who is a scene-stealer, joins him, along with icon Raquel Welch.

I enjoyed talking to the young actor, Alejandro who is quite a charmer and he told us, “I am the junior Latin lover, come see my movie.”

Rob Lowe

While we were talking about actors creating their own projects for online and cable, Rob Lowe told us “everybody does everything today and that’s really cool.”

Raquel Welch

Welch was a delight to listen to and a funny lady also. When asked about her role in the film, she said, she took it cause no one would believe that she would. Once she did her research on Eugenio Derbez and met him, she was on board.

Welch also told us about a comedy series (Date My Dad) she just worked on up in Vancouver, Canada. Where she gets to play a sexy Latina grandmother named, Rosa. Listen in to hear what she says when she’s not on the set.

I asked Derbez and Salma Hayek about the film soundtrack and their version of Jose Jose’s “El triste,” and I really liked their answers.

The plot follows; Maximo (Derbez) who has a dream to be rich without ever having to work a day in his life. Having made a career of seducing rich older women, he marries a wealthy woman more than twice his age. 25 years later, spoiled and bored from waking up next to his now 80-year-old wife—he gets the surprise of his life when she ends up dumping him for a younger car salesman. Forced out of his mansion and desperate for a place to stay, he must move in with his estranged sister, Sara, (Salma Hayek) and her nerdy but adorable son, Hugo (Raphael Alejandro) in their small apartment. Anxious to return to the lap of luxury, Maximo uses his nephew’s crush on a classmate to get to his new target—her grandmother, Celeste, a widowed billionaire.

You know with Eugenio involved, it’s going to be pretty funny. It also stars, Kristen Bell and directed by Ken Marino, and it hits theaters on April 28. — A.O.
