Anna Kendrick talks to ‘Interview’
Anna Kendrick recently had an interview with ‘Interview’ to talk about her new movie ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.
Another movie in the long list I have to go and see!
I have to say, Im really chuffed to bits that Anna has done so well from such a small (but important) role in Twilight to having so many new movies out from different genres. Well done Anna 🙂
Taglined “An epic of epic epicness,” director Edgar Wright’s adaptation of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s popular comic book series, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, hits theaters with Biblical force this Friday. Archetypal awkward youth Michael Cera plays the titular character, a 22-year-old bass player who falls in love with a girl only to learn that she has seven evil ex-boyfriends, all of whom are hell-bent on killing him. Anna Kendrick, who plays Scott’s reliable sister Stacey, says her character is “the voice in the back of [Scott’s] head that he knows he’s not going to listen to.” We spoke to Kendrick about filming Scott Pilgrim, Comic Con, and Twilight mania (or lack thereof).
CAROLINE BANKOFF: Hello, Anna! Where are you calling from?
ANNA KENDRICK: I’m in Toronto. We have the Toronto premiere of Scott Pilgrim tonight–we filmed it in Toronto, so it’s a homecoming of sorts.
BANKOFF: How’s your summer been so far? What have you been up to?
KENDRICK: I don’t know, really. Just kind of doing the press tour and stuff. And watching a lot of movies.
BANKOFF: And you just went to Comic Con to promote Scott Pilgrim, right?
KENDRICK: Yeah. It was great; it was amazing. I mean, the film is obviously for comic fans, and they seemed to love it, which is a huge relief. Those are your toughest critics, in a way.
BANKOFF: Had you ever been to Comic Con before?
KENDRICK: I’d been with New Moon. That wasn’t really the same because we didn’t get to really go and experience Comic Con. So, this was the first time that I really got the full experience.
BANKOFF: What was the most interesting thing you saw there?
KENDRICK: The Tron bike looked really cool, and it was just great to see a lot of people being in cosplay [“costume role play”]. A lot of people who are not in their element in real life really shine there, and that’s cool.
BANKOFF: Are you into comic books?
KENDRICK: I stole comic books from my brother when I was a kid, but I was never like an avid fan. I can’t claim to be like a comic book geek.
