tv   The Hollywood News Report  FOX  January 17, 2016 7:00am-7:30am CST

7:00 am
only on "the hollywood news report" where news is entertainment and entertainment is news. >> we caught up with ice cube, kevin hart, kim jong, olivia munn and benjamin benjamin bratt as they hit the red carpet for the premiere of "ride along 2". >> we got a lot of love from miami and the people here so we wanted to have a party. we wanted to party on south beach and kind o pay homage to the city that is the backdrop to a great movie. >> miami has such character.
7:01 am
itself and the architecture and the water and the palm trees and the culture and the people, it just brought life to the movie that makes everyone feel like it's fun and vibrant and anything can happen. >> kim jong could not hold it together, man. that dude is like a pound of giggles, man, all he do is laugh, mess up takes. but we had so much fun. it built a cool chemistry. >> there are time where i'll get in my laugh giddy modes and it shows how relaxed i am. maybe too relaxing sometimes. but it really just shows how much fun i really love having working with these guys. it's just -- it really is effortless. and when i'm laughing a lot, it usually means that everything's flowing so well. >> it's like a marriage. the first film was like a marriage after five years. this is a marriage to 15 years. they hate each other but they love each other and that's the
7:02 am
you have two expert artists working off each other. you have kevin, the perfect profession comic/clown. he's not afraid to look silly. not afraid to bring out the inner child, the source of a lot of comedy in the film and then you have cube who's iconic as a straight man. the only way to get the funny out of kevin in this film is to have cube with that flaring nostril and a snarl. >> to be funnier, to be bigger, to have more action, to keep it exciting, to make sure it was a ride and we achieved it all. natalie: when we come back, more from hollywood's biggest films
7:03 am
report." natalie: we're back. now let's take a look at some more films only on "the hollywood news report." >> official, part of inspection. >> sorry, sir, i can't do that. >> pull over. >> director michael bey depicts the true story of the six men who helped defend an american embassy from terrorists in "13 hours, the secret soldiers of benghazi." >> it was one of those things where i have to admit, i thought i knew everything i needed to
7:04 am
i watched the news and i read the newspaper, i try to be a responsible citizen and then i was a little bit embarrassed to find out i had no idea about this story and so much so that even when i asked my friends, nobody knew about the story. people don't know about what really happened that night which is kind of a fascinating phenomenon that the story is about something that has nothing to do with what actually happened. it's almost like they're two separate stories so for me part of the thing that really made me want to do the movie was to be able to tell the story of these guys and get them acknowledged for the heroism. they laid their lives on the line, without having to do it. what a lot of people don't understand, they weren't active duty military. they were retired so they didn't have to go. there was no obligation. they went anyway. >> it's under attack. >> let's go! we got to move! >> if you do not get here soon, we are all going to die. >> u.s. ambassador at risk. >> the ambassador is in his safe haven. you are not the first responders, you're the last
7:05 am
>> this is something that maybe people forget is that they voluntarily went into harm's way to protect these americans that were in danger and i think it's important. >> they were there to protect this clandestine c.i.a. annex and their job is to act as a shield. they're security guards, highly trained special opposite security dudes who have extensive combat experience. they're navy seals, army rangers, sergeants in the marines, the cream of the crop and they go voluntarily to try to save the ambo, his i.t. guy and the five d.h.s. agents who were overrun by 60, 70 insurgents. that's what happened. they don't want to bring the attack to anybody. they want to get them out and protect people and that does involve firing back when fired upon. >> that was emotional for us shooting it. i'm assuming people will feel
7:06 am
hope they do, that in your being gripped by the movie, to keep triggering this remembering this happened to real people so when we were shooting, there was an emotional day when we walked up to the consulate after it was burned out and you realized we're about to re-enact it and someone lived through this and others died in this exact setting. it was a really heavy burden you had to carry because you wanted to get it right from the beginning. >> they were there, we were here on this point, i was here. they came this way, we literally laid our c.i.a. annex. when we built it, they came there, the guys that were there. and they started crying because they said this is exactly what it was. i don't know how we got the plans for it but it's literally precise. >> nobody knows what took place, how many battles were there. there were five different battles, two different locations. the number of people that were saved that night, over two dozen.
7:07 am
black-and-white battle, people don't know about it. >> two navy seals, as they were jumping over walls trying to get there got killed. >> it was a really big disservice to the team that were willing to sacrifice. >> and everybody else that was there. >> that's why we knew we needed to tell the truth. we kept applying to yemen and lebanon, kept going to various -- he was seriously injured. this wasn't something we wanted to do but we felt it was necessary because the truth was misrepresented. >> thinking about my girls, man, thinking what would they say about me. he died in a place he didn't need to be. in a battle over something he doesn't understand. in a country that meant nothing to him. every time i go home to becky and those girls, i think this is
7:08 am
i'm going to stay. then something happens and i end up back here. >> i flew out to meet the real guy that jon krawczynski played who prefers to remain private and we went up into into the woods and sat there for 24 hours and we talked. we talked about tyrone woods who was a u.s. navy seal for 20 years. krasinski played jack silva, he was also a seal. they knew each other for a long time. he let me into their world and gave me his blessing and i got to hang out with the real guys, oz and tig and tonto and they talked about their experiences on this night and we had five former navy seals on set with us at all times who all worked with ty and you find they're fascinating individuals, like-minded but all different so i could take things from each one of them and try to fit that
7:09 am
>> it's a sensitive mind field field -- minefield because i thought i knew benghazi but we only knew this much about it and what's extraordinary there's a great human story, this much, that was never told and that's what we focus on. this was a book written by the guys that came back that were there that night, the sperm -- special operators the c.i.a. hires to protect their and they were a mile away from the consulate and they got a call. they're ex-military. they said if you don't f'ing get here, we're going to f'ing die and they suited up, no questions asked. they were all young fathers going back to the states within a week. they decided on their own, we're going to go. and that's the extraordinary thing about the movie. that's the selflessness of the movie and why there's a real inspirational story in this whole political stuff. get rid of all that.
7:10 am
>> gee, are we expecting any friendlies? >> i am not aware of any friendlies. >> let them come. let them come. >> it's perfect subject matter for michael because he has a particular skill set to shoot action sequences and there are moments in this movie that are just gripping and i think in addition to that, like a lot of people may not anticipate, is there's a lot of quiet in this movie of them on the roofs, talking about their lives, and there's a lot of subtly in that conversation and what happens and you know if you are only aware of michael from the big transformer" movies, you may be pleasantly surprised to see another side of him in this that i think comes across. >> this is an issue that's been highly politicized, bandied
7:11 am
and we're trying to depoliticize this event. we're telling the story of six guys and what happened to them on that night. hopefully we're educating the public a little bit more about some of the events that happened that night. >> as long as i'm doing the right thing, god will take care of me. >> americans are going to die. >> people take words and corrupt them and that's what's happened here. they've stolen the word benghazi from these guys and i think our job is to take it back because when you read the script, no one has told this story. it's the most disrespectful thing they can do to take all this stuff around, all the politicians, the right, the left, everybody, and they've coopted this word for their selfish means and the story is about the selfless act of these men that night. i talked to tyrone woods' mother and she told me she felt it had been taken from her son and what she hopes with this film is that
7:12 am
prejudgments for a second and pay respect to what these guys did and pay respect to tyrone woods, glen daugherty, shaun smith and ambassador chris stevens who made the ultimate sacrifice because he believed that americans and libyans had in common than they thought and he was willing to go all the way. >> thinking about my girls, man. natalie: more hollywood news
7:13 am
news report." natalie: thanks for joining us. now let's get to more entertainment news on "the hollywood news report." >> my sister, jess, and i, we're identical twins. >> when something happens to one of us. >> the other one can tell. >> it's hard to explain but i can just feel it. >> natalie dormer travels to japan in search of her missing twin sister in "the forest." >> i'm looking for my sister. she went into the forest. i want to hire a guide. >> no guide, forest is dangerous. >> i play sarah who is a together young woman who gets a phone call because her identical twin sister has gone missing into the other side of the world. she watched into a forest underneath mount fuji, a forest famous for people going in but not coming out. so sarah, out of love for her sister, feeling she is alive but that she's in danger, travels to
7:14 am
into the forest, things go wrong quickly. i did get to visit the forest for research. we had the joy of shooting for a week in japan on this and i went up with my driver, my japanese driver up to okak ahara and it's sacred for the japanese. it's steeped in heritage and they have a lot of superstition in the place. i ventured off the path by only five meters or so to take photos and my japanese driver wouldn't even step off like half a meter so i found that really interesting and curious and it went a long way to explaining the japanese people's relationship with the place. >> why is that happening? >> iron deposits in the mountain. crazy, huh? look. people sometimes see things in the forest. important to remember. if you see anything bad, anything strange, it is not
7:15 am
ok? it's not there. it's here. >> the forest is a place at the base of mount fuji, based on a real place in japan where people, not everyone, but the numbers are pretty staggering the amount of people that commit suicide in this forest a year. my character is a traveling journalist who meets natalie dormer's character in japan. she has a twin sister that is missing, with all intentions that she's in this forest, she goes out to find her and i'm looking for a story so i befriend her. another friend is a nature guide so the three of us go into the forest looking for her sister and the rest is the film. >> we were walking that way. >> no, we weren't. >> yes, we were, two minutes ago, we were walking that way and now you're leading me back the way we came. >> sarah, we're following the river down. remember? we're not climbing the mountain. >> i have so much respect and
7:16 am
actor and human being. he plays aden so well, the ambiguity of the character because the audience and sarah feel, do i trust him? is he a good guy or a bad guy? and you go back and forth on that during the course of the movie. it's clever psychologically, the writing. he's just a joy to work with. he's so natural. there's a scene by a fire because i really enjoyed shooting with him because it was warm and it was normally cold. we were huddled by the fire. i enjoyed that scene with him. you see a rapport between the two characters which is interesting for that moment in the movie before the scares start again. >> that's always a variable where you're going to work with somebody. i had never worked with her. you don't know if chemistry will be there or not in terms of a scene partner and we hit it off. we're working on something with dark content so you entertain a little bit of levity into the picture and it helps so we were
7:17 am
creatively, also, with the director, if i had a question or an idea, it was open ears. natalie, as well. if i said, try this or can i try this or if you want to go here, it's a bit of a dance, a tennis match. you have to have an open partner so hats off to her, she was great. >> sarah. >> sarah.
7:18 am
with more [ scanner beeping ] sir, could you step aside? "sir"? come on. you know who i am. progressive insurance? uh, i save people an average of over $500 when they switch? did you pack your own bags? oh! right -- the name your price tool. it shows people policy options to help fit their budget. [ scanner warbling ] crazy that a big shot like me would pack his own bags, right? [ chuckles ] so, do i have the right to remain handsome? [ chuckles ] wait.
7:19 am
natalie: we've got a lot more movie news to show. only on "the hollywood news." >> from creating a pop culture phenomenon with "pulp fiction" to reinventing the kung fu genre can "kill bill," quentin tarantino has mastered the art of original story telling.
7:20 am
of vengeance in the western, "the hateful eight." >> i don't have a good guy character, i don't have a moral center who you know is trustworthy. all these characters in "the hateful eight" are untrustworthy and to put those characters in one room and trap them in that one room with a blizzard that is almost like a monster in a monster movie that if they did try to leave, it would devour them and they have to deal with each other, then to add a slice of americana to the whole thing, i make a black cavalry officer and i make another, son of a quant rell raider type of renegade and i make one a confederate general and i add a bunch of other nefarious
7:21 am
see where it goes. >> he's nabbed two golden globes, two academy awards and has eight critically acclaimed feature films under his bet. now filmmaker quentin tarantino is becoming a star attraction in hollywood with a star on the walk of fame. >> quentin is all about the business of movies as entertainment and, you know, he sneaks a message in there but he's going to entertain you while he gives it to you. this is an amazing, amazing day for a kid from knoxville, tennessee, to become a name on the hollywood walk of fame. oh, my god. who would have thought? i know, you know. >> so i have called hollywood my home even before i even lived in this zip code, for a very, very long time and i take it seriously that i am a member of this community. i'm a member of this town.
7:22 am
and i want to thank all you all for coming out and i'm happy to have my star on the walk of fame with all the other people that have done a wonderful job in this town. natalie: that's it for this week. join me next time on "the hollywood news report" where
