Exclusive: How Far Would Hugh Jackman Go To Save His Child?



How far would you go to find you child ? That’s the question raised in the new action thriller Prisoners, as two girls go missing on Thanksgiving Day.

Directed by Denis Villeneuve, the film boasts an all-star cast including Jake Gyllenhaal, Viola Davis, Terrence Howard, Maria Bello, Melissa Leo, Paul Dano and Hugh Jackman, who were forced to answer that very question when we sat down to interview them during the films junket.

“I would go as far as human possible to save my son,” said Maria Bello, who plays Grace Dover the mother of one of the kidnapped girls.

“I don’t know if I would go that far,” explained Jackman, referring to his character Keller Dover who tortures a man in order to find his daughter. “But my wife would, she’s a lioness that woman.”

The film is already being touted as an Oscar contender, but Jackman and cast say they are just grateful to be apart of such an amazing film. Check out their full interviews below.

Prisoners is in theaters September 20th.


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



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 crisis around the world and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genius behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard 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 it’s core, it’s like, listen, ‘we gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

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

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural ills and 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.
