Another busy week at the video store as Battleship blasts its way onto home video, alongside Starship Troopers: Invasion, some Can-con with Edwin Boyd: Citizen Gangster and A Beginner's Guide to Endings, the documentary sequel Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory, the genuinely funny horror comedy A Little Bit Zombie, and the God awful "horror comedy" Jersey Shore Shark Attack.
We talked to Canadian character actor Kevin Durand about his latest role as a bank robber in the historical drama Edwin Boyd: Citizen Gangster, what it's like to play a lot of character driven roles, and about being able to adapt to filming in Sault Ste. Marie. Oh, and we asked him a tad about Cosmopolis.
Featuring a great leading performance from Scott Speedman, Edwin Boyd: Citizen Gangster stands to be one of the best English language Canadian films in quite some time, and it marks director Nathan Morlando’s debut as a filmmaker to watch for in the future.
We Canadians are often stereotyped as nice and polite, and even our bank robbers follow this pattern. Edwin Boyd is a biopic of Canada’s most famous thief, and it is a solid first feature, written and directed by Nathan Morlando.
