Opening in theaters on August 1st is Guardians of the Galaxy, which is based on the popular Marvel Comics series. The film is co-writen and directed by James Gunn (Super), and stars Chris Pratt (Delivery Man) as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness) as Gamora, David Bautista (The Man with the Iron Fists) as Drax the Destroyer, Benicio Del Toro (Savages) as The Collector, Karen Gillan (Oculus) as Nebula, Michael Rooker (Days of Thunder) as Yondu, Lee Pace (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey) as Roman the Accuser, John C.

IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had the absolute pleasure of sitting down with the great Michael Rooker to talk about his work on Guardians of the Galaxy. The veteran actor discussed his new movie, reuniting with his Super director James Gunn, making a Marvel movie, researching his role, playing an ambiguously evil character, Yondu's parental feeling's for Star-Lord, working with Chris Pratt, making a sequel, and possibly a Yondu spin-off.  

At age 22, actor Douglas Booth has already played Boy George (Worried About the Boy), and Romeo (Romeo & Juliet) on screen, as well as work with such visionary directors as Darren Aronofsky (The Wrestler) and the Wachowskis (The Matrix series). Jupiter Ascending, which he made with the Wachowskis, will be out early next year. But now you can see Booth in director Darren Aronofsky’s latest film Noah, which will be available on Blu-ray and DVD beginning July 29th. 

Noah is of course based on the classic story from the Bible. A man (Russell Crowe) is chosen by his world's creator to undertake a momentous mission before an apocalyptic flood cleanses the world. Aronofsky’s mixes in big budget VFX to make Noah the Lord of the Rings version of the beloved Bible story. In addition to Crowe and Booth, the film also stars Ray Winstone (The Sweeney), Emma Watson (Harry Potter series), Logan Lerman (3:10 to Yuma), Kevin Durand (X-Men Origins: Wolverine), and Academy Award-winners Jennifer Connelly (Hulk) and Anthony Hopkins (Thor). 

I recently had a chance to speak with Douglas Booth about Noah, as well as Jupiter Ascending. The popular young actor discussed his latest movie, his initial reaction to the script, working with director Darren Aronofsky, the film’s visual effects, staying true to the beloved story, acting opposite Russell Crowe, Jupiter Ascending, his role, the basic plot, and working with the Wachowskis

Award-winning French writer, director, and producer Luc Besson returns to the genre he helped create with his new film Lucy, which stars Scarlett Johansson (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and opens in theaters on July 25th. 

Besson is best known for directing such popular action films as Nikita, Leon: The Professional, The Fifth Element, The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc, and most recently The Family. But he has also written and produced a string of extremely successful action movies like The Transporter, The Transporter 2, The Transporter 3, Taken, Taken 2, Lockout, 3 Days to Kill, and Brick Mansions

Lucy tells the story of a woman (Johansson) accidentally caught in a dark deal that turns the tables on her captors and transforms her into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic. In addition to Johansson, the film also features Academy Award-winner Morgan Freeman (Now You See Me). 

I had the pleasure of sitting down with director Luc Besson in April at WonderCon to talk about his work on Lucy.

Opening in Los Angeles and New York theaters on July 25th is the new comedy from Academy Award-winning writer and director Woody Allen (Blue Jasmine).

Actor Andre Royo has appeared in such popular films as Shaft, Red Tails, and The Spectacular Now, as well as fan favorite TV shows like Fringe, Heroes, and Party Down. But he is probably best known for his role as Reginald “Bubbles” Cousins on the seminal HBO series The Wire. Now the actor returns to the big screen in the new horror thriller Aftermath, which opens in theaters and will be available on VOD and iTunes July 18th. 

Aftermath follows the devastating horror of a nuclear apocalypse as nine desperate strangers find themselves clinging to life in a farmhouse cellar, while radioactive fallout descends on the darkened world above. These would-be survivors face the nightmare of dwindling supplies, poisonous air and hordes of zombie-like refugees who want in. With each dying day, their choice becomes clearer, stay and let the makeshift shelter become their tomb or face the unknown terrors of the world outside. The film was directed by Peter Engert (Loving the Bad Man), and in addition to Royo stars Edward Furlong (Terminator 2: Judgment Day), Monica Keena (Freddy vs. Jason), Jessie Rusu (96 Minutes), C.J. Thomason (Transformers) and Christine Kelly (Salvation Boulevard). 

I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Andre Royo about his work on Aftermath, as well as wanting to play Brother Voodoo in the upcoming Marvel Studios film Dr. Strange. The accomplished actor discussed his new movie, acting in a basement, being typecast, the advice that Samuel L. Jackson gave him, why the film is not a zombie movie, the human nature to survive, reciting the Green Lantern Oath in Aftermath, hating the Green Lantern movie, and why he wants to play Brother Voodoo in Dr. Strange

The acclaimed actor and executive producer discussed his new film, his role as executive producer, what he's looking for when choosing projects, supporting fellow actors, not conforming to Hollywood standards, the movie's complicated love triangle, and how the film's theme of reincarnation strengthened his own views on the subject.
