Based on the graphic novel Red (Retired Extremely Dangerous), the movie is about a group of retired black ops agents that get back together to try and figure out why some former agents are getting killed. Anyway, a few days ago I was in NYC for the press junket and I was able to sit down with Bruce Willis and Karl Urban to talk about the film. During the very relaxed interview, Willis and Urban talked to me about making Red, using fake names at Starbucks and on dressing room doors, filming on location, their fight scene, and Willis talked about why he wanted to make Rian Johnson's Looper and Urban talked about Pete Travis' Judge Dredd. Finally, one last thing before watching...while my interview was supposed to end after three minutes, you'll see Willis tell me to keep asking questions even though the person running the interview wanted it to stop. I've never had a big movie star tell me to keep asking questions after my time was over. For my first time getting to ask Bruce Willis some questions on camera...it was very cool.

Anyway, I was recently in NYC for the press junket and I was able to sit down with Helen Mirren. During the interview we talked about whether or not her fans are ready to watch her fire a 50 caliber machine gun (I think they are), are there any challenges working in different genres, working with the rest of the cast, and she gave me an update on how Arthur was going with Russell Brand. Hit the jump to see what she had to say and make sure to see Red this weekend:
Morgan Freeman Interview RED - For more movie news, reviews and interview check out Collider.com - While I get to speak with a number of people in the entertainment industry due to working for Collider, it's not too often that I'm as nervous as I am excited before sitting down to do an interview. But on Sunday morning in New York City, I was as excited as a twelve-year-old girl meeting Justin Bieber. That's because I got to sit down with Morgan Freeman for his new movie Red. As a fan of his work in such films as Glory, Unforgiven, The Shankshank Redemption, Se7en, and countless others, getting the chance to ask him some questions was a real thrill. Thankfully, Freeman could not have been nicer, and we spent five minutes discussing everything from making Red to appearing in Saturday Night Live the night before (he was in the sketch What's Up With That). Of course I also tried to find out if he knew anything about Batman 3, and we also talked about what it's like for him to walk around in public and always getting recognized. While I was nervous walking in, I really think the interview turned out great. Judge for yourself. Finally, over the next week I'll be posting a ton of video interviews with the cast of Red. You can look for exclusive interviews with Mary-Louise Parker, Helen Mirren , Karl Urban and Bruce Willis.
