The statement his people send to The Daily Mail when they asked if he was staying in New Zealand is the confirmation. These pieces are indeed just repeating what they read elsewhere.
He probably tries not to talk too much about his kids with journalists so who knows when he would actually say something about his youngest boy. But a lot of journalists surely will ask about his lockdown days in New Zealand so maybe he would accidentally say something soon. 😉
I can't wait for the press publishing some of The Courier interviews soon! It seems the movie was already moved to October but surely some material will be post these days anyway! I hope he talks about TPOTD, too! The shooting was so secretive that I just need more info! Jesse Plemons also has a movie in September so he should be doing press soon too.
We’re sure to get articles and interviews soon, because the movie was set to be released at the end of August. We’ve seen before that magazines have stuff scheduled to print whether or not release dates get changed.
I would like a long q&a interview. Something similar to the Jane Campion piece today. Probably it's kind of difficult with BC because he wanders a lot! But I guess even Campion's interview was edited for clarity.
I'm glad this one was posted but there are actually very few quotes. We have mostly old info and some of it is wrong! (the two boys thing!). But well, this one was basically an ad for a watch so I shouldn't criticizing it for not being very informative or deep!
Still, one thing I resent about his Marvel association is that most of his interviews are cute and silly even when he was promoting something like TCW! I hope it changes a little with his next films! I mean I love cute and silly but I would also like something more meaty! I guess it was different with Patrick Melrose and Brexit but those were TV productions and in general TV stuff seems to be taken more seriously than films nowadays!
The article about The Courier/Ironbark filming locations says that the airplane scenes were filmed at the Duxford airfield. Didn’t Martin take Theresa on a date to the Duxford Air Museum in Cabin Pressure? I guess it never occurred to me that it was an actual place! I’ll be thinking about that when I watch the movie, imagining Martin and Theresa on their date, walking around, talking about planes. Ha!
I totally understand what she is saying but I guess she won't be included in The Courier publicity tour!
Those things are normally say after at least one year AFTER the movie release!
The whole quote,
The chatter began around Dominic Cooke’s Cold War drama The Courier in January when it premiered at Sundance (where it was titled Ironbark and earned a B+ from EW). Set to be released this fall, the film marked an opportunity for the actress “to step into a different temperature of a person,” she says. Benedict Cumberbatch stars as Greville Wynne, a real-life British salesman who was recruited to carry messages between MI-6 and a Russian spy while his lonely, increasingly suspicious wife (Buckley), tries to keep a stiff upper lip at home. While Cumberbatch was “an absolute dream” to work with, “I actually found that one of the saddest things to play,” Buckley says of her prim 1960s housewife. “There was just no valve for expression.”
Well that comment just makes me want to see it even more! I am tired of anachronistic social attitudes creeping into historical dramas. I am sure the role of a prim British housewife absolutely SHOULD be played in a way that would make any modern woman cringe. But I'd rather see that, than having her be "woke". Just watch though, sure as a sunrise, someone will pipe up and declare that BC is guilty of promoting non-feminist values in this movie! Sigh! People don't have any sense of history!
