Hayden Christensen explains it all

IMAGEHe talks Jumper, acting and the prequels in the latest issue of Details. The bit you’re going to see all over for the next few days:

“How those movies are made is very specific, as far as what our jobs are,” he says, with a bit of a shrug. “George isn’t looking for us to come in and have script meetings with him and talk about characters.”

…Of course Christensen is grateful to Star Wars. If he could go back and do it all over, he wouldn’t change a thing. Just don’t ask him to do it all again. “It wasn’t necessarily anything you could feel good about creatively, as far as ‘This is why I became an actor,’” he says of his work in Star Wars. He puffs on a cigarette. “It’s not why you become an actor, to do stuff like that.”

Star Wars isn’t about acting? Next you’ll be telling me it’s all about giant piles of toys and stuff blowing up. God, Hayden.

The power of Hayden Christensen compels you!

Jumper topped the box office this weekend, adding fuel to the fire that the combined power of Hayden Christensen and Samuel L. Jackson can propel a movie to do well even if the reviews are bad and there’s no giant all-powerful franchise backing it up. Or, maybe people just like sci-fi tinged action movies starring pretty boys and handsome badasses. Will we ever know?

Did anyone see it? Opinions?

Movie News: Razzies, Cloverfield, Jumper

IMAGE: Razzies!2007 must have been good for sci-fi, because the only genre films to get Razzie nods were known crudfests Ghost Rider (Nicolas Cage, Worst Actor,) Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (Jessica Alba, Worst Actress, Worst Screen Couple with three of her co-stars, including Hayden Christiansen for Awake and F4’s Ioan Gruffudd.) and Alien vs. Predator: Requiem (Worst Prequel or Sequel, Worst Excuse for a Horror Movie.) And let’s not forget poor Orlando Bloom (Worst Supporting Actor) in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End. Cinematical has the full list.

Those looking for something with less pointing and mocking can check out the 9th Annual Golden Tomato Awards, where Harry Potter and Stardust lead the best-reviewed sci-fi films of 2007.
