Exclusive: Ethan Hawke Reveals How He Would Purge!

Published

Ethan Hawke isn’t a fan of murder or having a designated day to get away with it, but the veteran actor did reveal to HipHollywood what he would do if crime was legal for a day.

“Why not blow up Exxon,” revealed Hawke. ” For all you people working at Exxon forgive me, but the oil companies or the companies making a mint off the suffering of others, blow up Big Tobacco, that’s what I would do.”

In the new thriller The Purge, Hawke plays a father trying to protect his family after an act of kindness makes them the target of a home invasion on the night of the annual Purge.

“In a lot of ways this film is just a fun popcorn night at the movies,” Hawke explained.  “But in a lot of other ways its better than that because it kinda has something to say about the sociopolitical climate right now.”

Check out what else Ethan had to say about the film, and starring in his first scary movie. The Purge is in theaters June 7th.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite

Published

on

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
