6:41 am
accident, they are left adrift. it's a film that i consider a game changing film of ourr generation.gera if you look over the course of the history of cinema, you find films, like 2001, hitchcock, you have george lucas star wars, and james cameron, avatar all technical achievements, and alfonso has hit one of those milestones. graphty is ongravity has reachef those, unlike avatar hits you on a technical standpoint. this is a technical and emotional achievement.acev she delivers, and she is so physically demanding in film. everything about this movie works.rk again, i have seen it three times, it gets better every single time. i gave it a 5 out of 5. i have yet to give a 5 this year. if you tweet me at kevinke mccarthy, i will tell you you

6:43 am
he better be for batman. >> if he is bored, i can entertain him, not that way. >> first in london, why the heck are you there? we need to talk about that, i love the fact that you are there, because london is one of my favorite cities, but why are you there. i'm here for the premier for a movie. i was on the carpet, i interviewed penelope cruz, michael fact bender, we will have the interviews, coming up for. you. i'm going to do this fox 5 fan question, we're we're going to o bring the questionin to any celebrity i interview and today we are going to sit down with, javi er. the next one i'm talking to is harrison ford. all you have to do is tweet and
