Personal Quote:

I was at the premiere of Prisoners (2013) and I heard two thousand people scream at the same time. I turned to my girlfriend and said, 'I love cinema!' It's the sharing of emotions together, and it's collective, It's one of the last communions we have. See more »

Trivia:

At around age 13, Denis Villeneuve and concept artist Nicolas Kadima began experimenting with storyboarding movies they imagined making. "Nicolas was a very good artist, so he did the drawing, and I would tell the stories," Villeneuve says. See more »
