IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Jacki Weaver to talk about her work on Magic in the Moonlight. The Oscar-nominated actress discussed her new film, what it's like to be on a Woody Allen set, working with the iconic director, meeting him for the first time, having to steal the script in order to read it, and acting with Emma Stone and Colin Firth

IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had the absolute pleasure of sitting down with Eve Plumb to talk about her work on Blue Ruin, as well as life after The Brady Bunch. The TV icon discussed her new movie, what drew her to the script, carrying a gun, having fun on the set, working with Jeremy Saulnier, what she looks for from a director on set, why she didn't develop her character's backstory, how her recent stage work has improved her acting, how show business has changed, finding good roles after The Brady Bunch, and being remembered for playing Jan Brady. 

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. The acclaimed director discussed his new film, how he got the idea for the screenplay, casting Scarlett Johansson in the title role, writing strong female roles, and how the business of making films has changed over the years.

The accomplished actor discussed his new film, his mother (legendary acting teacher Kristin Linklater), how she made Philbrick cry when he was her student at Emerson College, why she was happy her son was making a movie with Woody Allen, what Allen is really like as a director, Linklater's impersonation of the iconic filmmaker, working with Emma Stone, and learning to play the ukulele for the movie. 

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
