Mary’s Not Coming Back for DH5, Updates Us On Upcoming Projects

Two days ago, Mary talked a little about Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and in part 2 of her interview with The Playlist, Mary reveals more about ALVH, Smashed and Die Hard 5. Click on the Playlist link above to read the full interview, where she talks more about Smashed and her rumored role in The F-Word.

On Abraham Lincoln:Vampire Hunter:

“When it starts out, we’re very young and just dating and courting and it takes it right up to the presidency and the assassination and everything. So I got to span the life of someone from 19 to 46 and really go from this feisty young woman into this sort of force of nature who’s helping her husband fight along with the country. It was a really fun role to play.”

Aside from the vampires of course, ‘Lincoln’ will be a largely historically accurate telling of the president’s life. “It’s our real history of America [as if] we really did have vampires amongst us. Abraham Lincoln, during his presidency and fights against slavery, was also fighting against these vampires and the evil that was existing in our country. It’s sort of this wild action/adventure period piece,” she added.

On Die Hard 5:

I’m assuming I will not be [in that] because I have not heard anything,” Winstead laughs. “But it’s cool, all the updates and everything. I’m excited to see what happens with it.”

About Smashed:

“[Aaron Paul and I] play a married couple who are both alcoholics. It’s a really great script. Basically my character hits rock bottom really hard and decides to get sober, but he has no interest in getting sober. And it’s just about how our relationship kind of disintegrates because of it,” she elaborated.

 

Eric Christian Olsen Praises Mary; New Caps Uploaded

In a new interview with Comic Book Resources, while talking about “The Thing”, Mary’s co-star Eric Christian Olsen discussed about working with Mary a little and said nothing but kind things about her:

While Akinnuoye-Agbaje had nothing but positive things to say about Edgerton, Olsen praised star Mary Elizabeth Winstead, telling reporters that working with her was the highlight of the movie for him.

“She’s a rock star. She’s amazing. I mean, she’s our Ripley. She’s the toughest character in the movie,” he said. As quick to praise Edgerton, Olsen continued, “Joel Edgerton is, I think, one of the most talented actors of my generation. … When they got Mary I was ecstatic, and when they got Joel I went, ‘Oh, this is the type of movie they’re trying to make, they are hiring actors. That philosophy was across the board.”

Meanwhile, as I’m sure you’ve noticed, caps from various interviews and the latest clips have been added. See all the latest pics in the gallery.

Mary Talks Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter!

& the best part of this interview? A trailer will be out in February! During the press junket for “The Thing”, Mary spoke with The Playlist where she gave us an update about Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Here are some of the highlights:

“I haven’t seen any [footage], but I know they’ve been editing and I know that they’re really excited about it,” Winstead said. “I know there’s going to be a trailer out in like February, or something, so I’m really excited about that. But I wasn’t a part of most of the action stuff in that movie, which I liked that, because I kind of needed a little bit of a break [laughs]. So I’m going to be like an audience member when it comes to that stuff, because I have no idea.”

Meanwhile, Winstead said the sequences that she shot featured a more traditional look, making those set pieces an even sharper contrast for viewers. “I know that it’s going to look really cool,” she said. “I know that the stuff we did looks so beautiful, just like a classic period piece, so I think it’s going to be so cool to have that meld with these crazy action sequences.”

In spite of the fact that the film is a mash-up of real-life characters and fictional creatures, Winstead said that she and her fellow cast members put a lot of work into making sure as much of the story as possible was historically accurate. “We definitely spent a lot of time on the history,” she explained.

B-Roll Footage of The Thing

If you can’t wait to see The Thing in theaters, then check out these great behind the scenes (or B-roll footage as it’s called) videos of the cast and crew filming The Thing. For those that live in other countries and do not want to be spoiled, then I can only suggest that you do not watch. Other than that, enjoy the footage and we’ll try adding caps as soon as we’re able to. 🙂

New Mary Elizabeth Interview About THE THING

11 days and counting everyone! With The Thing about to hit theaters, new interviews will be coming online all over the place and one of the newer ones I’ve come across is with Flicksandbits.com where Mary talked a bit about The Thing film. Here’s some excepts.

Trust is definitely a big theme in the film…

Mary Elizabeth Winstead: Oh yeah, it’s one of those universal themes of who can we trust, and what happens when we lose all of our trust in someone, when we can’t trust anyone around us. How does that affect us, and what will we do if that happens, and what kind of chaos can permeate in that kind of situation? So it’s definitely a scary thing when you feel there’s somebody you can’t trust, even if your wrong you can drive yourself crazy that way – that’s sort of what happens in the film (laughs). You never know who is or who isn’t, but no matter what, people are gonna die basically – it’s going to be a horrific thing.

 

The original movie was an all male cast, the fact that there’s a female lead adds an interesting dynamic to film. Also that your on a Norwegian base, that really brings out the mistrust and paranoia between the Americans and Norwegians…

Mary Elizabeth Winstead: Yeah, the original is an all male cast, which is a really interesting thing, it is really cool to see a film with an all male cast. But I think with this film we really wanted to set ourselves apart from that, this isn’t a remake, it’s a real prequel. It’s about completely different characters, completely different people in the same situation. To me having a female lead kind of immediately says, ‘This isn’t a remake, we are doing something different, and we are bringing in a different dynamic.’

The fact that it’s a Norwegian base, I think for my character, as well as the other Americans characters, it sort of adds to the whole paranoia of it, because they’re saying things you don’t understand, their talking to each other and you don’t know if they are forming some sort of alliance against you. It really does build up the tension.
