Stephen Bishop Shows Off His Dark Side In ‘Til Death Do Us Part’

Published

There’s a new psychological thriller hitting theaters this weekend and this time it’s all about a marriage gone bad. In Til Death Do Us Part, directed by Chris Stokes, Stephen Bishop (Being Mary JaneImposters) plays a pyscho husband on the hunt for his runaway wife, played by Annie Ilonzeh (All Eyez On Me).

But while the premise sounds familiar, Bishop told us its not like anything you’ve seen before.

“This one goes pretty deep into domestic abuse, both psychologically and physically,” explained Bishop. “I think there have been times when people have touched on it and go right up to the edge and let you imagine what goes on, but here we cross the line.”

And audiences will see Bishop cross the line from hunky hearthrob to evil psychopath. “I didn’t enjoy playing this role,” said Bishop. “But the solace I took was that I was going to be able to extend myself as an actor and show people something they had never seen from me.”

But while Bishop plays the bad guy, Taye Diggs plays the knight in shining armor. “Taye kind of comes on in a charming way, and brings her a sense of peace,” explains Ilonzeh. “They have a pretty cute relationship, a very soft, sweet relationship.”

Diggs and Bishop, on the other hand, don’t have the greatest relationship (on screen) but you’ll have to wait and see how all that turns out when Til Death Do Us Part hits theaters Sept. 29.

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

Published

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.
