Exclusive: Michael Pena Reveals Intimate Moments Shared On ‘Fury’ Set

Published

Thrilling, visually stunning and electrifying performances across the board … Just three ways to describe David Ayer’s new war film, Fury.

The film, starring Brad Pitt, Michael Pena, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman and Jon Bernthal takes place in April of 1945 during WWII, when a five man crew sets out for a deadly mission behind enemy lines.

“The movie is about these five guys who live in a tank,” Ayer told HipHollywood during our chat in Miami. “The tank is a character on to itself, but it’s their office, their living room, their bathroom,”

And considering this a film that perfectly executes brotherhood and camaraderie, what better way to get to know each other than to see someones most intimate and personal moments. “The main thing was dong pee pee in a bottle,” Pena told HipHollywood. “Seriously, we are filming and base camp is like ten minutes away. So literally, you’re talking to somebody then you only see this … ,” Michae said while showing the face of relief.

The men also bonded over an intense boot camp which was ran by Navy Seals. “It was definitely tough,” David said. “We had sleep deprivation. We had to wake up at 5’oclock in the morning, go to sleep at 10’oclock at night, then we had to be on watch. Everybody had a two hour shift and it was freezing. But we all stuck together.”

He added, “It was priceless to be honest.”

Fury hits theaters October 17.

Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!

Published

Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.

In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
