Idiot Savant Online

John Lichman's third attempt at a personal blog and online savanting idiotic.

It Came From My Archives…Stupid Questions Asked By A Real Person: The Wolverine Edition

leave a comment »

I’ve recently decided to get all my old clips together as I suffered the loss of all my old posts on the original Spout Blog. These are reposts of the original posts on my personal blog so there’ll be a properly formatted version. Again, I really hate stupid questions and junket fodder. From Current_Movies Blog.

Sometimes there are moments in the world that beg the question, “How could someone do that?”

These occur with frightening regularity in the world of film junkets and press days with directors, actors and other talent. These are routinely asked at press/online film junkets where talent is delivered into a room filled with all types of people, recorders at the ready, waiting to ask the most mundane, ass-kissing-ist questions known to man.

Unless you’re doing a one-on-one. Those tend to be fine.

But in our unending quest to bring you (easy-to-produce) content, we bring you…Stupid Questions Asked By A Real Person.

“Wolverine” is not unlike “Tsotsi,” where a hardened criminal is transformed by caring for this baby. There’s a similarity there.

-Jordan Riefe, The Wrap, in a Q&A with X-Men Origins: Wolverine director Gavin Hood.

Because when I think “fuzzy Marvel cash cow,” I think of this.

But the real gold comes from IESB‘s anonymous transcript of a press day:

Q: As an acting technique, do any of you ever listen to music on set to get into character? If so, what was on your playlist?

Q: Are you still keeping up your physical regimen?

Q: Gavin, what challenges did you face, in honoring what came before while still adding something uniquely original for your own vision?
