I’ve already seen this movie twice and I’m probably the only person who went to see it for Katie McGrath instead of Chris Pratt. Not that he isn’t amazing, but anyone who knows me knows that I adore Katie McGrath. I was first introduced to her years ago through gifs on tumblr from the show Merlin and I literally started watching it because she intrigued me so much. Of course she quickly became my favorite character, and Merlin became one of my favorite shows ever. I am absolutely enamored by the Merlin cast and I highly recommend anyone to watch it. Katie McGrath is definitely my favorite actress and her small role packs a big punch in this movie. I really hope this propels her career further.
Nick Robinson playing Zombie in The 5th Wave is probably one of my favorite things ever. I’m so thankful he got cast as Ben Parish. I finally read The Last Star and boy if you haven’t read The 5th Wave series you’re in for a hell of a ride when you watch the movies. I don’t think the movies could ever add up to the books though (Bookworm’s perspective). I got so damn emotional.
Behind the Scenes of Army of Ghosts/Doomsday (Part 3 of 3)
Excerpts from Benjamin Cook’s article in DWM #372
“It’s very easy to forget,” muses David, as he waits patiently on set, “that here are actually people inside these Daleks.” “At least with the Cybermen,” nods Clare, the first assistant director, “there are two legs and two arms.” “SOCIAL INTERACTION WILL CEASE!” hollers a Dalek.
“Mine’s not as big as his one,” laments Andrew [Hayden-Smith as Jake Simmonds], pointing at a Cyberman with a gun. “Yours isn’t so small,” smiles David, kindly. “You know what they say…”
“All heads on, please,” requests the first AD, and the Cybermen don their helmets. A bronze Dalek backs into position, and Noel makes a beeping noise like a reversing lorry. David practices his skidding-to-a-halt acting.
