The Last Man star Kevin Bacon and his wife, actress Melissa Leo, recently attended a panel at the Sundance Film Festival in the U.S.A. They spoke about the new film, The Last Men, which premieres Thursday.
“We are really excited about the movie and the story of how we’ve come to have this shared sense of hope and determination to change the world,” Bacon said during the panel.
“And we’re really excited to be here in the Sundances.
And we’ve been talking about this movie, which is actually the first film in our new show, for a while now.
We’re all excited about it, and we think it’s going to be a really great movie.”
When asked what they learned from working with the filmmaker, Bacon said: “I learned to be kind of a silent critic.
And I learned that it’s important to try to think outside the box.
It’s important not to overthink what you’re doing.
It doesn’t matter how much you think it does.
You have to think about how the story plays out, and then you make choices based on that.”
Bacon also revealed that he was able to “see a lot of the stuff” in the movie, including the plot.
“There’s so much in the script that I’ve never seen before,” Bacon told the audience.
“I didn’t know that it was a story about the last man until I read the script.
And the first thing I said to the director was, ‘Oh my god, this is not a story of the last men, it’s a story that is about the people.’
And that’s kind of what it’s about.”
Bison, who is best known for his role in the television series The Wire, is known for being outspoken on social issues, and has been known to speak out against President Donald Trump.
“If I could get a movie made about what it was like to be black in the 60s, 70s, 80s, I’d be thrilled,” Bacon wrote in a recent blog post.
“But it’s not my story, it doesn’t belong to me.
So I’m going to continue to do what I do, to tell my story.
And to let people know it doesn, too.”
