Henry's Deleted M:I Stunt, Director Calls Him Unsung Hero, BTS


Watching Mission: Impossible Fallout was truly a fun experience, and it looks like making the film was just as enjoyable. This new behind the scenes photo by Chiabella James was just shared by one of the film's crew members, and we can't wait to see many more moments like this one when M:I Fallout is released on digital next month.

Today Henry teased a stunt that's part of the bonus content.



When we attended a Collider Q&A with Chris McQuarrie in LA a few weeks ago, the director described another deleted scene involving Walker:

There was a border crossing prior to Cashmere, we shot it when we were in New Zealand, which was early on. And it was, again, an information scene about making Walker a bad guy, and it was before we had shot, or even made friends with, or written the scene where Walker kills Hunley, so we were kind of trying to make Walker bad, and he murdered a bunch of people at the border, to whom you had no emotional connection. It was gorgeous looking, the whole set was fogged in. The fog, usually, you’re used to coming into work, the fog disappears five minutes after you get there, but it sat there all day. So it was a very eerie looking. It looks a lot like The Thing, of which Rob Hardy’s a huge fan, and Rob was like, “Oh my God, this scene looks like The Thing!” And I was like, “Yes it does! It’s gone.” And I knew when I was shooting it. I was like, “This is a safety. We can do better than this,” ’cause it’s a scene that’s making only one point. And if you look at scenes, a lot of times scenes that bug you in movies, or feel like, “What was that there for?” It’s ’cause the scene was just making a point, as opposed to being integral to the story, and it just feels like a detour.

He also mentioned King Stache and how Henry became the nemesis for Tom Cruise (read more at Collider). But our absolute favorite part, was when Steve Weintraub asked the director about the helicopter sequence at the end:

Henry Cavill was frozen solid. He’s in an open helicopter, sometimes at 7,000 feet, dead of winter, New Zealand, hundred miles an hour. I tested the open doors of the helicopter,in the summer in New Zealand. It was late summer, turning into fall. I got into the helicopter wearing what I’m wearing now, and a down vest, and said, “Take me up to 7,500 feet,” and we got up to 72, and I said, “Take me back immediately!” And it was cold. It was very, very cold. It was unpleasant. And when Henry was up there it was just bitter. He really is the unsung hero of that sequence. You know, when they say everything Fred Astaire did, Ginger Rogers did backwards and in high heels, everything Tom Cruise is doing, Henry is doing backwards with the doors open in sub zero temperatures. Freezing his eyeballs.

Was there ever a point where he actually said, mercy, let’s go down?

No.

That’s crazy.

Yeah. Henry is the man. He’s really … and more so, he would come to work every day and find out that whatever his character was the day before was not that character anymore. “Ah, we rethought that, it didn’t work, it’s a whole other thing,” and Henry would say, “Well, can I do this? Yeah? Can I do that? Yeah? Okay.” And then he would just go off to work, and he’d never complain. He understood from the beginning, Mission has a mind of its own, it’s gonna go where it wants to go, just go with it and you’ll be delivered. And you see remnants of our figuring out his character early on in the story, and he really was great. He’s really extraordinary.

Again, you can read the entire transcript of the Q&A at Collider.

BTS From BOSS Eyewear Shoot, 'Squadron 42' Trailer


It looks like we may be getting some new fancy photos of Henry, as he promotes the BOSS eyewear campaign. Today he shared a preview of what's to come. Stay tuned!


UPDATE: Henry has also shared a first look at the character he voiced for the Squadron 42 game (watch the full trailer). More details as we get them!

The Witcher: Meet The Actresses Playing Ciri & Yennefer



The Hollywood Reporter has revealed the rest of the cast for The Witcher, including the two young women who will play princess Ciri and Yennefer the sorceress. The two will have a close relationship with Henry's Geralt of Rivia.


The Witcher cast is finally here.  ITS FINALLY HAPPENING (via Netflix)

1: Henry Cavill is Geralt of Rivia... you probably already knew that though.
2: The enigmatic sorceress Yennefer will be played by Anya Chalotra.
3: Then there's Ciri. 17 year old Oxfordshire-native Freya Allan will play the pivotal Princess of Cintra!
4: From the court at Cintra: Queen Calanthe is Jodhi May.
5: Fledgling sorceress Fringilla is played by Mimi Ndiweni.
6: Sabrina is Therica Wilson-Read.
7: Millie Brady joins as the outcast Princess Renfri.
8: The druid Mousesack is played by Adam Levy
9: And Queen Calanthe's husband, the knight Eist, will be played by Bjรถrn Hlynur Haraldsson.
10: Tissaia, head of the magical academy, is MyAnna Buring.



The Hollywood Reporter also has a new interview with showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich.

Here are the questions relating to Henry:

The Witcher series, while centered on Geralt, features many strong female characters. Will the show feature Ciri and Yennefer in prominent roles alongside Geralt?

Yeah, what’s interesting is the first couple books are told from Geralt’s perspective and when I was reading them I saw that there are all these other characters who are very strong and powerful; not just the women, by the way. They can be pulled to the forefront so it doesn’t always feel like just Geralt’s journey, because the journey of one man is never going to be very interesting. It’s only going to be as interesting as the people he interacts with. That’s why these characters are rising in prominence in the series.

Did you intentionally cast lesser-known actors opposite Cavill, who is an established name?

Not specifically, nor were we looking for a movie star when we cast Henry. We’re looking for the best actors for these roles. Period. End of story. It comes down to the best actor for the role. Henry’s obviously a big fan of the franchise. We met in early April and had a very general meeting. I then went off and met with hundreds of other candidates for Geralt and never really got Henry out of my mind. In casting Anya and Freya, the cool thing was we were open to anyone and both of them, to me, embody the spirits of the characters.

Filming is expected to start very soon, so keep checking back for the latest production updates.
