Posted December 20, 2018 13:04:51As the stars were set to be joined by other superstars from across the globe for the premiere of the upcoming film adaptation of Stephen King’s dark fantasy novel, The Dark Phoenix, some wondered how this would be the first time they had ever been to the US.
After all, they were there to film the film’s production and the opening night premiere, not visit the set.
“We’ve never really been to Los Angeles, we’ve never seen the city and it was such a completely different atmosphere that it was very difficult for us to adjust to,” actor James Badge Dale told the New York Times.
“It’s a city that we’ve all grown up with.
It’s not like it’s a huge city.”
Dale’s performance in the film, directed by Tim Burton and starring Amy Adams, was the only time that his character would appear in the US until the US was admitted to the Oscars in 2019.
The Dark Phoenix is the latest film adaptation to hit cinemas, following films like The Lego Movie, The Great Gatsby and The Hunger Games, and many fans are now asking why the cast, and the cast members, weren’t there to see the film.
“I’m not sure if the fans are aware that it’s been in the works for a while,” actor and producer Michael Kelly told Al Jazeera.
“What I think the reason is is that, for a lot of people, there’s this misconception that we’re only here for the US release, which is not the case.”
For a lot people, it’s about getting out there and seeing the world.
“And if they had been, Kelly said, it would have been easier to understand the appeal of the film when it was in the public eye.”
To be honest, we were all very excited about it and there was no way that we were going to miss the opportunity to be there,” Kelly added.”
There was a lot that we would have missed out on.
“You just have to put yourself in the shoes of the actors.
We’d been in New York, L.A. and L.G.
A, and we were just in awe.”
While there are still questions surrounding the film after its US premiere, there are many reasons why the actors and crew were able to get back to New York in the first place.
In an interview with The New York Post in 2018, director Tim Burton said he had already made a decision about the production of the new film.
It was “not a question of if we were to shoot this movie here in New England, but when”, Burton told the publication.
“They have to do something for the film that people can see.”
And in the meantime, the cast and crew are hoping that their experiences and knowledge from the film will serve as inspiration for other films and films that follow.
“A lot of films are set in the same place,” said Kelly.
“But we don’t want to do the same thing over and over again.
We want to be able to create new stories in this world that we live in.”
The Dark Suns, which will be released in 2019, is set to see its US release on September 19.
