The Bronze, a (hard) R-rated comedy about washed-up Olympic gymnast Hope who can’t move past her glory days, stars Big Bang Theory’s Melissa Rauch. Captain America: Winter Soldier’s Sebastian Stan plays rival gymnast Lance.
So here’s one thing you should know about Sundance movie that gets a theatrical release March: Rauch and Stan’s characters have…
“The most crazy, epic gymnastics sex scene ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
At least that’s how the movie’s major love scene was described in its script, said Rauch, who wrote the film with her husband, at the movie’s Hollywood premiere Monday.
That would explain why the laugh-out-loud-funny scene contains flips, splits and handstands. So, how did that sequence come together? Rauch explained:
“We sorta bullet-pointed what those (gymnastic) moves would be. It was the closest to a porn that I think I’ll ever write. And we had a phenomenal gymnastics coordinator, Kristina Baskett, who did all of the gymnastics including the ‘sex-tastics.'”
Another important element of the sequence: Rauch and Sebastian Stan had Cirque du Soleil performers as body doubles, “but Sebastian did a lot of his own stunts,” said Rauch.
So we asked Stan: Which stunts were his own?
“I would say there’s a few upside-down press-up pumps that are happening that are all me,” he admitted.
Sony Pictures Classics has released the red-band trailer for the Melissa Rauch comedy “The Bronze,” which includes the promise, “She’ll put the nasty in gymnastics.”
The trailer features half a dozen variations on “f–k” and concludes with an instruction scene of Rauch telling a younger gymnast how to be cute during a performance. “Sell it to the bitch-ass judges,” she commands.
The movie, due out March 11, is Bryan Buckley’s directorial debut, written by Melissa Rauch (“Big Bang Theory”) and Winston Rauch. Melissa Rauch stars alongside Gary Cole, Thomas Middleditch, Sebastian Stan, Haley Lu Richardson and Cecily Strong, and portrays a foul-mouthed former gymnastics bronze medalist who must fight for her local celebrity status when a new young athlete’s star rises in town.
While doing rounds of interviews for his role in The Martian at the Toronto International Film Festival, Sebastian Stan fielded a few questions about the highly anticipated Marvel film, Captain America: Civil War. In the former film—Ridley Scott‘s space-based sci-fi adventure—Stan plays Dr. Chris Beck, the mission crew’s flight surgeon and self-professed adrenaline junkie; in Captain America, he’ll return as Bucky Barnes, aka The Winter Soldier. Despite the well-known aura of secrecy surrounding the Marvel Studios production, Steve was able to get a few answers out of the actor.
Steve sat down with Stan to relive his experiences both during and after his appearance in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the amount of dialogue in the new film, a spoiler-free chat about the Ant-Man post-credits scene, and the prospect of starring in future Avengers movies. Stan even gets a few return shots in at DC/WB director Zack Snyder, defending Marvel and Ant-Man.
Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 45 Commander Scott Kelly and Flight Engineer Kjell Lindgren of NASA took time out of their work schedule to talk to Sebastian Stan and Mackenzie Davis, cast members of the new movie “The Martian”, during a visit they made to Mission Control at the Johnson Space Center, Houston Sept. 15. They were joined by JSC Director Ellen Ochoa. Kelly is at the midway point of a year-long mission aboard the orbital laboratory with Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko of the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos), gathering valuable biomedical data that will be used in the formulation of a future human mission to Mars. Lindgren, who is a medical doctor, is beginning the third month of a five-month mission on the outpost.
Mackenzie Davis and Sebastian Stan, stars of 20th Century Fox’s Film “The Martian”, got a tour from Johnson Space Center Director Ellen Ochoa. News media followed the tour taking a peek at what NASA’s “Real Martians” are working on.
