As an added bonus, Philbrick also had a chance to speak with filmmaker Pedro Almodovar about the different themes in I'm So Excited and how he got the idea for the film's screenplay. Here is what he had to say:

"Well, I didn’t have sex in one plane, I dream of that sometimes but not lately. I didn’t do drugs on a plane, but this is the only place where I didn’t. In the ’80s it was very popular. I don’t drink, and this is something that I never did even during the ‘80s. But the man thing is that in life all of these things are prohibited. So comedy is perfect to betray the rules. Basically in this case, these are people who are frightened, nervous and are becoming crazy from having alcohol and all of that to relax. In that moment being like drunk and drugged and all that, which is linked in a way, that they can let go of their inhabitations on some level because of the drinking and the state of excitement lets just say. But then also because they have forgotten what is at the base, which is fear. I think for a bunch of passengers who are basically facing death, this is one way to celebrate life and to turn to the senses specifically, and sensuality and sex as a way to say goodbye to life. So that was the meaning."


When it appears as though the end is in sight, the pilots, flight crew, and passengers of a plane heading to Mexico City look to forget the anguish of the moment and face the greatest danger, which we carry within ourselves.

I'm So Excited opens in theaters on June 28th.
