I think there are a lot more relationship scenes in my movies that people tend to overlook. A lot of scenes really feel real and are about the characters.
In regards to The Haunting, people compared it to the old movie, which is unfair. We didn't have the rights to the movie. I couldn't duplicate a single thing because that would have been legal infringement.
I had a very strong-willed mother, who I totally adored. She was always in control of her life.
Lara Croft is such a strong individual, she's very driven, she doesn't need a man, she's speaks her own mind, and that she's in control of her own life. It's a lot of what women want and have.
I think the audience would like to see movies that are stunning to watch. I really think they'd like to see spectacles.
Summer movies are spectacles; that's what you pay 10 dollars to see. You want to get teased by effects sometimes. I think that will never stop.
Angelina wanted to make sure that any fighting in the movie would be comparable to any male actor. Everything from stick fighting to horse riding was real to her.
We're all complex human beings, and if some of that complexity shows through, I think it's advantageous for the movie.
I really believe action will always be there and will never disappear.
I think what makes a good action film is a story that gets you involved. Just action, by itself, is not going to work.
We are creating a fabulous franchise with an incredible female action hero.
The quality of CGI, audiences are now so used to it. They don't know what is CGI and what is real.
This film, Tomb Raider 2, is a big challenge. It's quite exhausting.
