Entertainment Weekly‘s Fall Movie Preview edition of the magazine will be on newsstands this Friday and EW recently revealed the cover and a sneak peek of what is going to be this edition. The cover has an image of Edward and Bella Cullen as The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part Two is one of the most anticipated films coming out this fall; not to mention it is also the final Twilight Saga film.
As most people know, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are going through some relationship troubles after Stewart revealed she had been cheating on Pattinson. In this week’s edition of Entertainment Weekly, director Bill Condon commented on Pattinson and Stewart’s relationship:
“The fact is, these are actors playing parts, and maybe it’s not such a bad thing that people be reminded of that. Both of these actors gave heart and soul to the Twilight movies, not only during shooting, but also by navigating so graciously the whole life-in-a-fishbowl aspect of the phenomenon. Above all they have always shown great respect for the fans who made these movies such a success. Now it’s time that some of that respect be returned to them.”
Other interviews and films that are going to be talked about in this issue:
- In the Wachowskis’ first print interview in about a decade, they discuss how they came to work with Tom Tykwer — and to co-direct Cloud Atlas as a trio. “We wrote every line together. We planned the shoot together, did the schedule together, and cut every single frame together. And whenever we could shoot together, we did,” says Lana Wachowski. They also discussed what it was like to work as Andy and Lana instead of Andy and Larry. “We’re brother and sister,” says Andy. “I mean, it’s different in the way people perceive it. But the set is our set, and we run it like we always run it.”
- Lincoln director Steven Spielberg dismisses reports that Daniel Day-Lewis dug so deeply into character while playing the title role that he didn’t acknowledge the modern world. “Daniel was always conscious of his contemporary surroundings,” says Spielberg, though he admits he did refer to the actor as “Mr. President” on set. “I was calling [all] the actors by their character names.”
- Ben Affleck talks about the shaggy haircut he sported in the 1970s-era real-life drama Argo, which he also directed: “That was one of those things where the leader has to go first. If I’m going to ask other people to have really humiliating ’70s hair, I had to be the first one. It was pretty chic, but I couldn’t wait to cut it off.”
