  1. Interview: I Origins Writer & Director Mike Cahill

    We also talked about dinosaur footprints and how dogs poop.

    Fox Searchlight's I Origins came out last weekend. I've already posted my review and interviews with the cast of the film, but I also had the chance to speak with writer/director Mike Cahill about his process and inspiration.

  2. We Spoke to the Cast of Fox Searchlight’s I Origins About Science, Eyeballs, and Filmmaking.

    Also about the word "numpty" because Brit Marling wanted to?

    The new movie from writer/director Mike Cahill I Origins is out today. I had mixed feelings about its unique approach but was pretty blown away by the performances, so I was excited to be able to sit down for a roundtable discussion with Cahill and the stars of the film Michael Pitt, Brit Marling, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, and Steven Yeun.

  3. The Mary Sue Exclusive Interview: Lucy Knisley On Her New Graphic Novel, Something New

    In which weddings are weird. And awesome. But mostly super weird.

    Lucy Knisley's new graphic novel, Something New (which we exclusively announced earlier this week), is coming soon from First Second Books, and we're so excited about it. Something New follows Knisley as she attempts to plan a wedding - a process this geeky foodie finds entirely alienating. Lucy sat down to chat with The Mary Sue's Weekend Editor Sam Maggs about her wedding, the graphic novel, cupcake dresses, and Darth Vader.

  4. Spooked Stars Derek Mio and Shyloh Oostwald Talk Sci-Fi and Their Own Paranormal Experiences

    Boo!

    Geek & Sundry’s ghost hunting horror-comedy Spooked premiered online on June 4th and gave geeks another great new web series to get hooked on this summer. Co-stars Derek Mio (Greek) and Shyloh Oostwald (In Time), who play Elliot and Piper respectively, took the time to sit down with The Mary Sue and talk ghost hunting and the endless possibilities of online-only TV distribution.

  5. The Mary Sue Exclusive Interview: Snowpiercer‘s (and Alien‘s, and Hellboy‘s, and The Elephant Man‘s…) John Hurt

    This happened.

    I interview Snowpiercer's John Hurt about director Bong Joon Ho, the Weinstein Company's (attempted, unsuccessful) cuts to the film, Hollywood blockbusters... and Pacific Rim? Brief spoilers are behind a spoiler shield.

  6. The Mary Sue Exclusive Interview: Snowpiercer Director Bong Joon Ho

    Everyone see this movie. Yes? Yes.

    In case you haven't heard, I'm head over heels about Snowpiercer, out in limited release today. Here, I interview director Bong Joon Ho about sci-fi, backstory, and Tilda Swinton pulling out her dentures.

  7. The Mary Sue Interview: Director Gillian Robespierre On Her Non-Traditional Rom-Com Obvious Child

    Today in "movies you should see."

    Obvious Child starts with its heroine, stand-up comedian Donna Stern (Saturday Night Live alum Jenny Slate) telling a joke about vaginal discharge. I could write pages about how this movie isn't your average rom-com—how it has a frankness that a lot of its Hollywoodized brethren don't, how its characters feel real—but that opening joke says it all. Director Gillian Robespierre took the time to chat with us about the film, the genre, and that opening scene.

  8. Ladies of YouTube: Nika Harper, Mighty Pen, Mightier Swords

    Interview

    As a platform, YouTube has opened up new opportunities for filmmakers, writers, pop culture critics, and other creative talents to share their work with the world. For female creators, YouTube and internet culture has often been a double-edged sword, allowing them to bypass the usual gatekeepers but often exposing them to hateful feedback online and even harassment in real life. In this new series Ladies of YouTube, I sit down with writers, camera women, and prominent personalities to discuss their work as well as the advantages and disadvantages of YouTube culture. As a YouTube personality, Nika Harper is, in a word, unique. Her shows for Geek & Sundry range from recreating video game weaponry in Arcade Arms to imagining stories in story-less video games in Story Mode and creative writing advice in Wordplay. She took a break from her writing (and taking a bar mace to the chest) to talk about Geek & Sundry and finding her voice as a writer and vlogger.

  9. Ladies Of YouTube: Hannah Hart on Booze, Books, and Being Happy (With Gifs!)

    Interview

    As a platform, YouTube has opened up new opportunities for filmmakers, writers, pop culture critics, and other creative talents to share their work with the world. For female creators, YouTube and internet culture has often been a double-edged sword, allowing them to bypass the usual gatekeepers but often exposing them to hateful feedback online and even harassment in real life. In this new series Ladies of YouTube, I sit down with writers, camera women, and prominent personalities to discuss their work as well as the advantages and disadvantages of YouTube culture. With over a million subscribers, Hannah Hart is one of YouTube’s most recognizable (and adorable!) faces. In the past year, she has traveled the world and visited the White House to meet with President Obama, and this August, her new book My Drunk Kitchen: A Guide to Eating, Drinking, and Going with Your Gut will be available in bookstores across the country. She took a break in the midst of her recent travels in London to chat with The Mary Sue about meeting the President and her love of books and booze.

  10. Joey Ansah Has Strong Feelings About Street Fighter Characters, and That’s What Makes Assassin’s Fist So Great

    Unlike my strong feelings about video games, which just lead to me playing too many video games.

    Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist's Joey Ansah has strong feelings about the way licensed movies are handled, and it really shows through in the series. The story deals with the origins of Ryu, Ken, their master, and Akuma, and instead of shying away from taking these characters seriously, it uses characterization to drive the action.
