Press/Photo: First look: Sebastian Stan and Denise Gough get steamy in honest romance ‘Monday’

EW.COM

Boy meets girl at a party. Boy and girl drunkenly hook up on the beach. After a wild weekend adventure, boy and girl fall in love. We’ve all seen that movie before. But what happens when Monday rolls around and reality pops the romantic bubble? That’s what director Argyris Papadimitropoulos wanted to explore in the dark romance Monday, where there’s no “happily ever after” as the credits roll.

EW has your exclusive first look at the honest take on relationships starring Sebastian Stan and Denise Gough. The steamy image above is the perfect representation of how a relationship can start off so magically and feel so right … before the real world sets in, bringing all its problems and hardships with it.

“I was always excited and interested in love stories but I always wanted to explore when things go wrong in relationships,” Papadimitropoulos says of his fourth feature film, which he wrote with Rob Hayes. “Why do people become so different at some point when everything started like a dream?”

The filmmaker drew inspiration from his own relationships as well as what his friends have experienced to create Mickey (Stan) and Chloe’s (Gough) authentic story, which begins at a debaucherous party on a Greek island. “Almost everything that happens in this film is something that either happened or is inspired by something similar that has happened to me or people I know,” he says. “There’s a little bit of me in every character in the film, the things I like about me, the things I don’t like about me, it’s all blended together.”

Papadimitropoulos knows that moviegoers have seen the candy-coated, happy ending kind of love story in films so many times before. That’s why he wanted to take an honest look at what really happens with relationships — the good, the bad, and the ugly. “The rom-com genre gave us some amazing films in the past but then again, you watch them, they’re entertaining, but it’s not true,” he says. “You don’t really believe what’s going on at the end. So we start the film like a romantic comedy but then let the characters develop the way they would in real life and have problems, bottled up feelings, things they hide from each other, skeletons in their closet, and see what happens when the reality of everyday life settles in. It’s great having an amazing weekend but then Monday comes with a reality check.”

The filmmaker hopes everyone can see themselves in Mickey and Chloe, in whatever form that may take. “It’s about the truth of relationships, how we can make things work if we want to make things work,” he says. “It’s about how it’s okay to be sensitive and to have emotions and to be vulnerable. You should talk about your feelings because in the summer you have an amazing time, but at some point, winter comes. Day by day, things become more difficult and you need to talk about it or else it will just get worse.”

Working with Stan and Gough to bring Mickey and Chloe’s turbulent, passionate relationship to life was a huge learning experience for Papadimitropoulos as they all collaborated to improv a lot of the dialogue during filming.

“They come from totally different worlds and backgrounds,” Papadimitropoulos says of the two stars. “They worked in totally different ways. But the three of us very early on found our own way, which is something that all three of us have never done. It was taking the best ways we all like to work, and make something of our own rather than borrow from another method. I was amazed and surprised by how easy they made it for me and how ready they were to take risks and try different things and huge improvisational takes. It was an amazing experience.”

For this trio, the harsh light of Monday morning didn’t ruin the magic of their relationship.

News: Joel Edgerton, Marion Cotillard, Mark Rylance, Sebastian Stan & Vanessa Kirby To Lead Brady Corbet’s Sweeping Immigrant Drama ‘The Brutalist’

Deadline – Joel Edgerton, Marion Cotillard, Mark Rylance, Sebastian Stan & Vanessa Kirby To Lead Brady Corbet’s Sweeping Immigrant Drama ‘The Brutalist’

EXCLUSIVE: Joel Edgerton (Loving), Oscar-winner Marion Cotillard (La Vie En Rose), Oscar-winner Mark Rylance (Bridge Of Spies), Sebastian Stan (Captain America) and Vanessa Kirby (The Crown) are among the all-star cast set for Brady Corbet’s (Vox Lux) sweeping immigrant drama The Brutalist, we can reveal.

Also among the impressive ensemble will be Isaach De Bankolé (Black Panther), Alessandro Nivola (American Hustle), Raffey Cassidy (The Killing Of A Sacred Deer) and Stacy Martin (Nymphomaniac).

Co-written with his partner Mona Fastvold, whose latest movie The World To Come unspools this week at the Venice Film Festival, Corbet’s film will chronicle 30 years in the life of a visionary architect named László Toth (Edgerton) and his wife Erzsébet (Cotillard) who flee post-war Europe to rebuild their legacy and witness the birth of modern America. However, their lives are changed forever by a mysterious and wealthy client (Rylance).

The project, which is due to get underway in January 2021, is described to us as an “epic saga and unconventional love story”. The director has previously said the film’s protagonists are both Holocaust survivors and that it will shoot in English, Yiddish, Hungarian and some Italian.

Protagonist Pictures will debut the package with a virtual presentation to buyers during the Toronto Film Festival. CAA Media Finance is repping U.S. rights and arranging the project’s financing.

Andrew Lauren and D.J. Gugenheim are producing for Andrew Lauren Productions (ALP), Brian Young is producing for Three Six Zero, Trevor Matthews and Nick Gordon are producing for Brookstreet Pictures, which is financing, and Christine Vachon, Pamela Koffler, and David Hinojosa of Killer Films are set as executive producers.

The movie will shoot partly in Poland with Madants, who previously worked with Andrew Lauren Productions on Claire Denis’ High Life.

Corbet last directed the Natalie Portman and Jude Law starrer Vox Lux, which debuted two years ago at the Venice Film Festival. His first feature, The Childhood of a Leader, won the Best Director and Luigi De Laurentiis Award for Debut Film at the same festival in 2015.

Corbet said: “Amidst a revamped cycle of populism and prejudice in the 21st Century, The Brutalist is a film which celebrates the triumphs of the most daring and accomplished visionaries; our ancestors. It is the project which is so far the closest to my heart and family history. I so look forward to reuniting with many of our closest collaborators, as well as some exciting new ones, to realise what we all anticipate to be a vital and urgent motion picture”.

Producer Andrew Lauren commented: “Brady’s third feature, The Brutalist, is a continuation of his unique interpretation of major historical moments of the past century. This story resonates for me as the grandson of an immigrant artist, and is unquestionably relevant to the political discourse we are having in America today.”

News/Rumor: ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ Might Resume Production in July

ComicBookMovie.com — At this point, it’s fair to say that Disney+ is in desperate need of fresh content, and if The Falcon and The Winter Soldier doesn’t premiere in August as planned, there will be a lot of unhappy subscribers. There’s not a whole lot Marvel Studios can do about that, though, as COVID-19 continues to cause production delays across the globe.

However, following the news that Paul Bettany has been forced to cancel a Comic-Con appearance next month so he can get back to work on WandaVision for reshoots, it’s now said that both The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and Loki will also likely continue production in July.

Liz Hill has shared a lot of reliable intel in recent months, so she definitely counts as a trustworthy source.

It’s unclear how the complications surrounding movie and TV shoots will affect these plans as studios are forced to adhere to strict new safety measures, but if these final scenes can be filmed in a studio, that will make things a lot easier. For now, we’ll obviously just have to wait and see.

Press/Interview: Dreamy Photos of New York, From a Captain America Actor

The Cut — Dreamy Photos of New York, From a ‘Captain America’ Actor. [Photos by Sebastian Stan]

When the coronavirus came to New York City in early March, the rich fled. En masse, celebrities, influencers, and other wealthy people left for their vacation homes upstate or just got stranded on the vacations they were already on. Sebastian Stan wasn’t one of those people. Although he’s been anxious, hates Zoom, and has become intimate with every nook and cranny of his apartment, he tells me he couldn’t imagine leaving New York.

I spoke with the Captain America actor over the phone last week. He’s spending lockdown alone in the city and has been getting into photography. He’s the first to admit he’s an amateur but says that taking photos of New York has helped him feel better about everything.

“There was something about seeing these structures, these massive buildings, seeing them weathering the storm,” he mused. “It doesn’t matter what’s going on, who’s around, or what we’re facing. There’s something about the architecture, sort of like the weight of these buildings, that just exudes perseverance in a way. It just made me feel less alone.”

Below, a conversation with Stan about photography, what New York means to him, and why he found it so important to stay.

How did you get into taking photos?

I’ve been running in the city very early in the morning, when there’s hardly anybody on the street. And so I just started taking these pictures — it just made me feel better about being here during this time. We’re all coping with this thing as best as we can. Everyone’s doing their best, and everyone’s got their own version of that. And I think this is part of it for me.
There’s this great lens, this little thing on the iPhone camera so you can shoot and include more in the picture. I was just mostly sending them to my friends who live in the city but left, being like, “Hey, just remember where you’re from.”

Speaking of your friends who left the city, you could really be anywhere right now. Why did you choose to stay?

This is where my home is. I don’t have a place somewhere else to run off to. People that don’t live here, they just picture it to be this very lonely place. And it can be lonely, but it’s really not. I just feel a tremendous amount of pride being here, because it’s where I live.

I’m in a relationship with this city, to some extent. It made so much possible for me in this country, so I don’t want to abandon it.

When did you move to New York?

After college, in 2005, and I’ve lived in the city since then. I came from Romania, and when we first came to the States, my mom fell in love with New York and was very determined to find a way for us to live here. I remember visiting when I was little, and she passed to me this idea about New York, like: This is where you come from, and this is where you invent yourself, and this is where you make it. This is where you survive.

Do you have a favorite building or spot in Manhattan?

I’ve always loved that West Side Highway. I’ve walked there through every possible problem, celebration, exhilaration, depression — like everything you can imagine. I’ve walked Seventh Avenue all the way up and down.

What do you think the city will look like when the pandemic is over?

People here are gonna find their way and continue connecting in that very specific way that only happens in New York. The thing about this city is its inner resilience. Sometimes on my runs, I would pass another runner, and he would look at me and give me like the fist up — like, “Here we are. We’re doing it.” And there’s something very powerful about that.

And a few weeks ago, I was walking and I passed an old lady who was blasting Sinatra’s “New York, New York.” You heard it all the way down the street, and she was in the window. She must’ve been 70-something, and she was like, “Come on, let’s go!”

What’s the first thing you want to do when things are back to normal?

Honestly, I want to go to a rooftop in Brooklyn and hear massive house music playing outside, overlooking Manhattan. And have a cocktail, see the sunset setting over the skyline, hear the music, and just say “WE’RE BACK!”
