Personal Quote:

[on how society validated the brutalizing slave system] I think that was part and parcel of the day. How many people are holding the Bible up with one hand and trying to launch a missile with the other?

Trivia:

Filmed Assassin's Creed (2016), The Snowman (2017) and Alien: Covenant (2017) (in that specific order) one after each other, without breaks between films, between August 2015 and July 2016. He admitted that he needed a break after all these films. See more »
