Q&A with Simon Pegg and Karl Urban

For a summer blockbuster, this film has some really nice, quiet character moments.
I don’t think you can watch a film that is full of explosions and care about it if you don’t have some care about the people that it is happening to.

Q&A with Ralph Ineson, Anya Taylor-Joy, Robert Eggers

There’s an incredible attention to detail throughout the film, from the dialog to the set decoration. Could you describe how you approached these aspects of the film?
Robert Eggers: New England was the most literate part of the Western World; you had to teach your children how to read– it was against the law if you didn’t, because you had to read the bible in English.

Q&A with Michael Fassbender

When an actor does Macbeth on stage, they get to experience the character straight through. How was it playing it in a film?

Q&A with Joey Kuhn and Kimberly Parker

Can you talk about some of the sources of inspiration for this film?
Joey Kuhn: I’ll start with the emotional inspiration for the film: In college, I accidentally fell in love with my gay best friend, and was afraid to tell him for years.

Q&A with Jeff Nichols, Joel Edgerton, and Ruth Negga

What was the research process like, preparing to play such a quiet man with a strong presence?

Q&A with J.C. Chandor and Robert Redford

Why did you want to be in this film?
Redford: Because he asked me! In all honesty, I’ve spent many years building an organization to promote independent film, and yet no one has asked me to work in their film.

Q&A with Director Steve McQueen and Chiwetel Ejiofor

Your character experiences some of the darkest things a person can experience. During your preparation and filming, was there anything in particular that helped you connect with him?
Ejiofor: I think I wanted to find out about who he was. I thought there was something about him that was too remarkable.
