Kk: First of all can I just say that I absolutely loved your film, it blew me away. For a first feature as well, it’s such an impressive feat, there’s just so much to take away from it and read into it. Tell me a little bit about how you came up with the idea for it, the very concept is quite intriguing.
As: I think that a lot of first-time feature makers are kind of around the age of 24, and I’m kind of long in the tooth now, because I was working in theatre and opera, and was an actor before that. So whilst it’s a first feature, I hope that the experience I had in theatre and opera kind of lends a bit of weight to »

It was also the "Apocalypse Now" of weather-themed disaster movies. The film's production was marked by severe injuries to the stars and crew, a runaway budget, and the cinematographers openly rebelling against the director. Here are the real-life twists you didn't hear about from the tornado drama's tempestuous shoot.
1. The "Twister" screenplay is credited to "Jurassic Park" novelist Michael Crichton and his wife, Anne-Marie Martin, but it was revised by such celebrated script doctors as Joss Whedon (who dropped out of the project because he contracted bronchitis), Steven Zaillian (who dropped out because he was leaving for his honeymoon), and Jeff Nathanson, who was on the set and kept rewriting the script until the end of the shoot.

Nearly 40 years ago, Doctor Strange got his first shot at screen glory. We take a look back at the Dr Strange TV pilot...
Even the biggest superheroes had to start somewhere. Batman made his screen debut in a 15-part serial for Columbia, where he spent the entire time tussling with a ‘Japanese’ criminal called Dr Daka (actually Irish-American character actor J Carrol Naish). Superman also made his first live-action appearance in a 40s serial, with Kirk Alyn wearing some very large underpants as the Man of Steel.
Marvel’s roster of characters started to get their own shows in the 1970s, with Spider-Man leading the way and The Incredible Hulk following him with a successful, five-year run on CBS. Less widely remembered than either series, however, was CBS’ Dr Strange, which received just one 90-minute TV movie in 1978.
For many TV viewers, it would have served as »
Eli Roth’s cannibal horror The Green Inferno is heading into UK cinemas (finally) on February 12th, and the director took the time out to talk to us about the film (which you will hear on an upcoming episode of the Flickering Myth podcast). Up next for the director, however, is the giant shark movie Meg, and Roth told us about his unusual pitch for the movie.
“When I met with the studio I basically said, ‘You know Pac-Man eating dots? Well the shark is Pac-Man and the dots are people’,” Roth joked with us. “That’s the movie I’m making. Give me five surfers to go in one bite. There’s no fighting, there’s no trashing – it just swallows and keeps moving. You’re a dot in a Pac-Man maze.”
“They loved it,” he continues. “It’s going to be scary and it’s going to be exciting. »
