BBC America interviewed Jim Sturgess this week about Upside Down, Cloud Atlas, his indie films, as well as his upcoming film The Big Shoe and working with Kristen Stewart.
Sturgess seems disappointed by the public’s response to the recent film Cloud Atlas in which he plays multiple characters. “To me it was a real feast of cinema and people struggled to watch it as a product which was a shame when that happens,” he says.
He thinks some moviegoers have become apathetic and less interested in challenging and original fare. As Sturgess puts it: “More and more people are wanting films just to kind of switch off and to let things just be given to them. So there’s a format they feel comfortable with, and when a film works outside of that format sometimes people struggle with that idea.”
Additionally, an unnamed editor and photographer at Industrial Light & Magic in the San Francisco bay area, took this AWESOME image of Jim Sturgess and Juan Solanas. The two were in San Francisco earlier in the week promoting Upside Down. Jim, Juan, and Yoda… It doesn’t get much better than this!
