2012 Premiere – Interviews with the Cast and Director

John Cusack stars as a divorced novelist who finds out the world is going to end and tries to save his family from a series of disasters in the action epic 2012 from writer/director Roland Emmerich. Emmerich’s no stranger to telling big stories having helmed Stargate, Independence Day, and The Day After Tomorrow, but according to the veteran action director, this is likely to be his last huge production for a while. On the special ‘black’ carpet in downtown LA, Emmerich told me he’s ready to try something smaller. “I will not up the bar in my next movie,” said Emmerich. “No, I’ll just do a small, little movie, very different.”

Check out these interviews from the disaster-free LA premiere of Columbia Pictures’ 2012:

Behind the Scenes of Fantastic Mr Fox with Jason Schwartzman

Wednesday November 11, 2009
Jason Schwartzman’s a very busy guy. He’s starring in the HBO comedy series Bored to Death and he’s been working on a variety of film projects, including lending his voice to the character ‘Ash’ in the animated movie Fantastic Mr. Fox. Based on the book by Roald Dahl and adapted for the screen and directed by Wes Anderson (The Royal Tenenbaums, Rushmore), Fantastic Mr. Fox is the story of a chicken-stealing fox and the three mean farmers who wage war on the fox and his family and friends. Schwartzman, George Clooney, Bill Murray, and Meryl Streep are among those who provide the voices in this stop-motion animated tale.

“It was really fun. I had no idea just how much fun it was going to be,” said Schwartzman, describing his experience doing voice work on the family-friendly film. “It kept getting better, actually, and it was such an odd thing. It’s weird. I almost have amnesia about the making of this movie because it was made in such an unorthodox style.”
