Made in Hollywood Previews X-Men: Apocalypse, The Do-Over, Trolls
Superheroes try to save the world while a pair of regular guys try just to save their own skins in movies spotlighted this week by the Made in Hollywood TV show.
The most powerful mutant ever poses the greatest risk to humanity ever — and it’s up to Jennifer Lawrence as an older, more mature Mystique to help a crew of young X-Men to stop him in “X-Men: Apocalypse,” opening Friday and co-starring James McAvoy, Olivia Munn, Oscar Isaac and Sophie Turner.
“She’s starting to become a little less rebellious and see the world in broader way,” Lawrence tells Made in Hollywood reporter Kylie Erica Mar of her character. “Maybe she’s getting a little maternal.”
Adam Sandler Talks to Made in Hollywood About Working Again with David Spade
The maturation process goes the opposite direction in Adam Sandler’s latest Netflix comedy, “The Do-Over,” which starts streaming Friday, with the funny man working again with David Spade as two dudes who fake their own deaths to get a new lease on life — only to then have to fight for their survival.
“I like Spade,” Sandler deadpanned to Made in Hollywood at the movie’s Los Angeles premiere. “He really had nothing going on with his life. I figured that would be good to help him out. Gave him the gig. He didn’t let me down. He was funny as hell in it.”
Made in Hollywood Travels to Cannes to Catch Up with Justin Timberlake, Anna Kendrick of Trolls
Made in Hollywood also traveled to the Cannes Film Festival to catch up with Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick, the voice stars of “Trolls.” Coming out in November, the animated feature has the actress singing with the pop sensation.
“I had such a great experience working with Justin,” she says. “The nature of it is just very intimidating, but he’s very good at directing your voice and just gives very clear simple direction and makes it feel like this isn’t a huge deal, which is a talent in itself.”
And the stars of the another highly anticipated upcoming film, the big-screen adaptation of “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” spoke to Made in Hollywood about the thrill of working with director Tim Burton.
“Tim is actually a very normal guy, very humble and he wants the actors to feel as comfortable as possible,” says Eva Green, who plays Miss Peregrine, an opinion seconded by costar Asa Butterfield. “Tim was so good at making you feel so relaxed,” he says. “He just sort of brings the best out of you.”
