Predators Movie Is Surprisingly Very Good

Damego claims “The New Predators Movie Is Surprisingly Very Good”

Another actor who quickened and animated the new Predators movie was the actor Walton Goggins. I have given this man’s acting props before in his scene stealing role in the FX television series, “Justified;” in Predator, he is at it again and the audience will be rolling in laughter with the delivery of his lines. I know, like me, you might have reservations about seeing a movie in its third incarnation, but do not let this stop you from seeing a very good movie. It must be noted that the new Predators movie had good movie making pedigree since fame director Robert Rodriguez was one of the producers.

More reviews of Predators and mention by Joelle Carter

More reviews of Predators and mention by Joelle Carter

In another interview with the lovely Joelle Carter, they discussed Justified and Walton was brought up again and here is what was said:

Adam: The show is so well acted, including Walton Goggins’ portrayal of Boyd Crowder. He’s definitely one of the most believable villains on TV. Tell me about your scenes with him. And watching the series again on TV, what did you think of Boyd?

Joelle: I think I might love Boyd’s character as much as I love AVA … maybe? He is given such complex stuff to juggle and performs it with such ease. I feel like Walton finds the deep truth in his characters and plays them full-hearted and it is wonderful to watch and a privilege to be a part of a scene with him. I am a lucky girl.

Adam: In the end of season 1, we saw the showdown between Boyd, his dad, the drug circulations, and Raylan. And you were right in the middle of it. Tell me about the awesomely chaotic season finale.

Joelle: Well, let’s see – there were 15 shootings and 13 deaths. Don’t quote me, but I know it was something crazy like that. I was very happy not to receive any bullet holes or to have any graves dug for Ava. I was thrilled to be in the mix. The scene Tim, Walton and I shot when were trapped in the cabin was pretty intense. They rigged the whole cabin with small explosives to make it look like we were being sprayed with bullets. They basically had one take to get the shot. The three of us were told to cover our heads and close our eyes. I must say, there wasn’t a whole lot of acting required. As soon as the director yelled ‘action’, the room was torn apart and I dug my head in deep and didn’t look up till I heard ‘cut’. It was pretty exciting.

Latest critic reviews of Predators are in!

Here are some of the few reviews rolling in of Predators. Thanks to Manya for the heads up!

The cast in general is surprisingly solid, especially the ineffably cool Alice Braga and a memorable Walton Goggins, who earns most of the films laughs with some off-colour humour.

Walton Goggins was a favorite of mine. He brought the laughs to the film through his deadpan comments and humour. I really enjoyed Stans.

Walton talks about ‘Justified’, being from the South

Walton talks about ‘Justified’, being from the South

The 38-year-old, who grew up in Lithia Springs, not only boasts starring roles in the FX hit series “Justified” and the upcoming summer blockbuster “Predators,” but Goggins also got engaged to his girlfriend of five years, screenwriter Nadia Conners (“The 11th Hour”) while on vacation in Mexico last month.

Goggins portrays a serial killer on the other side of the hunt in “Predators”, which opens in theaters Friday.

Earlier this summer, Goggins and I sat down at the Laurel Canyon Country Store, nestled in a quiet hamlet between the Hollywood Hills and San Fernando Valley. Both patrons and the owner alike dropped by our table to say hello; all echoed the same sentiment: Walton is a great guy.

Q: You’ve found a favorite spot in Los Angeles where everyone seems to know you.

A: I think that people try to find a sense of community wherever they go. Coming from the South, I grew up where you could see your neighbors, but they were a fair distance away. A field separated me from my neighbors Kermit and Fanny. So, I grew up with space. Moving to a city with 12 million people it’s hard to find space. Laurel Canyon provides the perfect hybrid for me in this city as it is urban, but it feels very bucolic. It gives me a feeling of home.

Q: Everybody here seems to know you. Do you ever get tired of that?

A: No, everyone has different levels of celebrity and my celebrity is very familiar and familial. Mostly people that come up to me feel like they have the right to do so and it’s usually resulted in a really nice conversation. So, for me, it’s the perfect level of celebrity. People aren’t shy to tell you how they feel about your work, and when you’re working on screen, you’re often working in a vacuum, so it’s nice to have the feedback from people that follow your work.

Audio and Snippets from the Predators Press Conference

[audio:https://www.avpgalaxy.net/files/movie_predators/conference-goggins-brody1.mp3]
[audio:https://www.avpgalaxy.net/files/movie_predators/conference-goggins-brody2.mp3] • Brody: There’s more to his character than the physical abilities. Getting into the headspace is just as important. The mental transformation goes hand in hand with the physical transformation. The confidence level goes up when you feel strong.
• Brody: Restricted his diet. For the first time since college, he lifted heavy weights. The body chemistry changed. The physical change was important, but he cultivated the mindset Royce needed to be in. Studied military field manuals, took in as much as he could to create someone with a sense of control.
• Brody: Didn’t want the fear to paralyze his character.
• Goggins: I just read Playboy.
• Goggins: After thinking about his character’s time in jail, he approached Antal and said he hasn’t been socialized in years. His prep was the antithesis of Adrien’s. He’s been in prison for years and years, so being out in the jungle is all new to him. His physical prep was the lack of physical prep.
• Goggins: My blessing and curse as an actor is to take a character on paper and make the audience hate him, but then turn it around and make people laugh with him. Make him 360.
• Brody: It’s surprising when people are surprised by his choices in roles. As an actor, he’s made a conscious decision to not repeat himself to keep it interesting.
• Brody: I look at this as an opportunity to do something special in a type of film he loves. Hollywood has had a reliance on physical brawn, but the confidence comes from within.
• Brody: Coming from a tactical approach. And did feel he need to transform physically. A hero should look strong but didn’t want to just rely on that. It’s a big coup for him and is very protective of this movie and character. Continue Reading →

The Making of Predators, Casting the Human Predators

The Making of Predators, Casting the Human Predators

Walton Goggins was cast as tattoo-covered, feral Walter Stans, a serial killer who thinks of himself as a rock star. “Walt has an energy that allows him to be funny in one moment, terrifying in the next,” says Antal. “You’re laughing with him and then you’re afraid of him. Every time Walt was on camera, all I could see was the crew slowly coming behind the monitors to watch him play. You don’t need coffee if you have Walt Goggins.”

Antal had cast Goggins, but Rodriguez was at the time unfamiliar with the actor’s acclaimed work on “The Shield” and other projects. Additionally, the character as scripted was still a work in progress. “I thought we were going to have to overhaul the character and go in an entirely different direction,” Rodriguez remembers. “And it was a predicament because Nimrod had already hired Walt. So, I said let’s just fly him down so I can at least say to him face to face, ‘Look, I’m sorry, we’re just changing the part radically, I’m not happy with it.” And Walt was an incredible collaborator and talent. He was my kind of actor – willing to do whatever it took to make the part work. He just started trying different things right then and there, bouncing off the walls with energy. He basically recreated that entire character of Stans from the ground up right there in the room. He created a very original character.”

“Stans has spent sixteen years on death row,” explains Goggins. “The first images that he sees outside of a prison cell of an alien jungle are just a little over-stimulating for him. He fancies himself the only celebrity on this new planet of terror and thinks that people should be asking him for his autograph. He’s dark, but also I think rather funny and pessimistic.”

A San Quentin orange jumpsuit and multiple tattoos, including a Scorpion tattoo on his neck, helped Goggins get into character. He spent on average of an hour and half in the make-up chair on a daily basis to maintain the fake body art. “The tattoos made me feel very authentic. It’s been interesting walking around, both Hawaii and Austin, with them on. You get the help that you need in stores and restaurants. You don’t get the help that you want, people are not helping you out of kindness. They’re helping you out of fear,” laughs Goggins.
