To celebrate the release of Dolphin Tale 2 on DVD and Blu-ray, we have a Q&A with star Harry Connick Jr.

5000193456_UK_DT2_BD_SL_3D-2

 

Believe in the spirit of friendship, the strength of family and the power of hope when DOLPHIN TALE 2, inspired by a true story, is available to own first on digital HD from February 2nd 2015 and makes a splash onto Blu-ray and DVD on February 16th 2015 .

Winter, the world’s most extraordinary dolphin returns in the charming and heartwarming sequel to DOLPHIN TALE. This time, Clearwater Marine Aquarium must find Winter a new companion, or risk loosing Winter to another Aquarium forever.

Directed by Charles Martin Smith (Dolphin Tale, Air Bud), DOLPHIN TALE 2 sees return performances from the entire main cast of DOLPHIN TALE led by Oscar winner Morgan Freeman (The Lego Movie, Lucy) as the creator of Winter’s prosthetic tail, Dr. Cameron McCarthy; Harry Connick Jr (Dolphin Tale, Angels Sing) as head of the Clearwater Marine Hospital team, Dr. Clay Haskett; Nathan Gamble (Marley & Me, Beyond The Heavens) as Winter’s owner and trusted companion, Nelson Sawyer; Ashley Judd (Divergent, Olympus Has Fallen) as Sawyer’s mother, Lorraine Nelson; and Kris Kristofferson (San Patricios, 7 Minutes) as Reed Haskett, Dr. Clay’s father.

It has been several years since young Sawyer Nelson (Gamble) and the dedicated team at the Clearwater Marine Hospital, headed by Dr. Clay Haskett (Connick, Jr.), rescued Winter. With the help of Dr. Cameron McCarthy (Freeman), who developed a unique prosthetic tail for the injured dolphin, they were able to save her life.

Yet their fight is not over. Winter’s surrogate mother, the very elderly dolphin Panama, has passed away, leaving Winter without the only pool-mate she has ever known. However, the loss of Panama may have even greater repercussions for Winter, who, according to USDA regulations, cannot be housed alone, as dolphins’ social behaviour requires them to be paired with other dolphins. Time is running out to find a companion for her before the team at Clearwater loses their beloved Winter to another aquarium.

Q&A

QUESTION: Are you starting to feel like an honorary citizen in Clearwater, Florida?

HARRY CONNICK, JR.: It is a great part of the world. Just being in Clearwater again and driving past the aquarium, I realized how much time I’ve spent here doing these films. And it’s just an incredible part of the world.

QUESTION: What kind of response did you get from fans after the first one and did that affect your decision to do the second one?

HARRY CONNICK, JR.: It didn’t matter about the fan response with regard to doing it again. I mean, even if it had been poorly received or people didn’t like it, there probably would have been a reason behind it. But if it were exactly the movie that it was and people didn’t like it, I would have come back and done it again anyway, just for lots of reasons. It was just a great filming experience, working with Charles [director Charles Martin Smith], who’s really a brilliant guy and a pleasure to be around, working with the rest of the cast, being at CMA [Clearwater Marine Aquarium], all of those things really contributed to this being, I’d probably say, the best filming experience I’ve ever had. It was just great.

And people really like it. What’s interesting to me is as you go through your career in the entertainment business, new people are being born and growing up and becoming teenagers and young adults and a lot of the people that came to know me through Dolphin Tale, they have no idea that I do anything else— but it’s not a bad thing. It’s cool.

QUESTION: Is that because you’ve been doing more in front of the camera and less in music?

HARRY CONNICK, JR.: Not really. I’m still making records and touring and stuff. If you happen to cross somebody’s path in a certain way, Dolphin Tale reached a lot of people, but maybe those people don’t go see me on tour, buy my records or watch TV or anything like that. So, I’m not doing any more acting than I was doing 20 years ago, but it kind of ebbs and flows with regard to how people are introduced to you, you know.

QUESTION: Harry, one of the things I love about this movie it shows our interdependency—animal life, human life. What it is you take from Dolphin Tale?

HARRY CONNICK, JR.: My trainer tells me all the time, when I’m complaining, ‘Oh, I don’t want to do another set or whatever.’ He always says, ‘No mind. Just do it. Just be quiet and do it. You’re going to get through it; you’re not going to die. Don’t think about it. Just do it.’

And there’s something about Winter… Obviously, she’s not a human being, so she doesn’t think about things the way we think about them, but it is what it is. This is what life gave her, and there’s something inspirational about watching a creature that has a mind that’s different in the way that we know it. This is the cards that were dealt to her, and what else you going to do?

Life is really like that, as we all know. There are certain things that are just wonderful about life and certain things that are not wonderful. And what are you going to do about it? You have to accept things with grace and with dignity and move through them. And that’s something that you’re reminded of when you see, especially Winter. I call it DWI – ‘Deal With It.’ [Laughs]

QUESTION: Is it easier to step in the shoes of a character you’ve already played? What is the preparation process for you on this film?

HARRY CONNICK, JR.: Well I did a pretty considerable amount of research the first time around, because I really wanted to know who this guy was. The second one was, obviously, much easier, because I had done it before. What was really strange is that it was almost the exact same set of circumstances as the first one. I mean, even the volunteers at CMA were pretty much the same, same set, same city, same cast. So, it was very easy to kind of remind myself of what that was.

But for the first one, I went and interviewed marine biologists and marine veterinarians, just anything I could to try. I watched how they looked. But the second time was a lot easier.

QUESTION: At the end of the film, you see a lot of the actual footage of the events that are pretty accurately portrayed in the film. How much were you trying to remain accurate? And where did you have room to embellish and make it your own?

HARRY CONNICK, JR.: Well, this is really Charles Martin Smith’s area. He is a brilliant, brilliant guy. And every single nuance of what happened in real life was thoroughly considered with regard to how it was going to be dramatized in the film. Nothing was not fully considered. So, that’s really about him as a character. You knew you were working within the realm of what’s on the page. Was I able to manipulate things and do things? Sure. He’s a great actor’s director, too.

But that’s really him. Many times, I would say I didn’t know what happened in real life and what didn’t happen, and he was extremely knowledgeable about every detail. Because as an actor you need to understand everything. So I’d say, ‘Did this happen?’ He’d say, ‘Oh, yeah,’ or ‘No, this happened.’

Sometimes you’d be on set and you wouldn’t know who was hired as an extra or a cast member and who was actually on the scene when it went down. We’d be standing out in the water with people with CMA costumes on or the kind of costumes with gear, and many times they were the people who actually did the rescue work. Sometimes they would be actors or whatever, but it was a weird kind of altered reality.

But that’s Charlie. He did a great job with that. It’s really hard to do, too. It’s easy to chalk it up as a family film, but it’s very complex to walk that line between what really happened and what didn’t.

QUESTION: Were you in attendance at the wrap party in 2011 when Hope was rescued?

HARRY CONNICK, JR.: Oh, yes, I was. That was crazy because we had been through this wonderful emotional journey with the entire filmmaking experience and with the animals and stuff. W were at the wrap party and there was this bustling and people were coming in with cell phones and pictures of Hope, who had been rescued. It was just another nod to that weird line between what really happened and making movies, because as we’re celebrating the wrap of the film, 24/7, these guys are still doing what they have to do.

They’re not messing around. I mean, this is a religion to these people. And it’s just constantly going on. That’s something that I hope continues to get out to people that see the movie. It was crazy, the fact that they did it, and then, a couple years later, when I saw the script, I said, ‘Man, I don’t know about doing this. What you going to do?’ I mean, how could you possibly tell the story in a different way? And then I read it and thought, ‘Oh, wow. It’s really cool.’ So that was an exciting night.

QUESTION: Did anybody toss around the idea of a sequel that night?

HARRY CONNICK, JR.: No. I remember when I first heard it, Broderick [Johnson], one of our Alcon producers, said, ‘They’re talking about doing a second one.’ And I actually laughed. I said, ‘Man, you’ve got to be kidding.’ I thought it was a joke, really. And then I read the script and I’m like, ‘Holy crap.’ Charlie is , really smart, man. I mean, this is, in some ways, better than the first one, I think.

QUESTION: Did you offer any advice to the kids in the movie, Nathan Gamble and Cozi Zuehlsdorff?

HARRY CONNICK, JR.: They’re incredible, and I love them very much. I love both of them and know them really well. And Cozi, who’s a very serious musician and very talented, we have a great relationship because she wants me to critique her. And I do. It’s not about being hard on her, but it’s just about being honest. She’ll say, ‘What do you think about this?’ And I’ll say, ‘Listen, I think this is great, and here’s what I think you need to work on.’ And she’s like a sponge. I mean, she’s so brilliant, so smart, and I’ve told her before, ‘I’m not being tough on you. I just don’t want to waste your time. I want to tell you what the real deal is.’ And she’s tough. She gets it. And she works on it.

QUESTION: She sounds good in that song at the end.

HARRY CONNICK, JR.: That’s the tip of the iceberg. She’s a musical freak. [Laughs] No, I’m serious. She is really a very touched young lady. You have no idea how talented she is. Crazy talented.

QUESTION: We understand why you came back. Why do you think everybody was so keen to get back on board for the sequel?

HARRY CONNICK, JR.: I think it was just the incredible filmmaking experience. It really was. You can take the subject matter of the movie, you can break it down into scenes that you’re really looking forward to doing. But when you look at it like as a package deal, you have to get on a plane, you have to come down, you have to block out a big chunk of your life. It’s a time commitment. It’s a great thing, but it’s a lifestyle. And a lot of boxes have to be checked off before you say, ‘That’s really what I want to do. I want to be away from my family, I want to stay up until four in the morning, whatever.’ It’s a commitment to make.

But it was such a great experience. It was just such a positive experience. That’s why everybody came back, because everybody loves each other. It’s a beautiful part of the world. You’re talking about a subject matter that everybody can relate to. So, it’s just a great experience.

QUESTION: Did you get in the tank with Winter?

HARRY CONNICK, JR.: Yeah. That was cool. And swimming with the dolphins versus really interacting with Winter and the other animals was a completely different thing. I have done that before like in situations where you can go and be in the same vicinity as them, but when you’re actually working one-on-one with Winter, it blows that other stuff away.

To celebrate the release of The Rewrite on Blu-ray DVD, we are giving three lucky winners the chance to win it on Blu-ray.

Rewrite

The King of the Rom-Com is back to reclaim his crown as Hugh Grant stars in THE REWRITE, available on digital platforms from 2 February, 2015 and on Blu-ray and DVD from 9 February, 2015, courtesy of Lionsgate Home Entertainment.

Once upon a time, screenwriter Keith Michaels (Hugh GrantFour Weddings And A Funeral, Music & Lyrics) was on top of the world – a Golden Globe Award and a hit movie to his name, a beautiful wife and a seemingly inexhaustible supply of wit and charm. But that was fifteen years ago: now, he’s divorced, broke, approaching 50 and hasn’t written a hit film in years. Luckily, his agent has a job for him – a university in the quiet town of Binghamton is looking for someone to teach a course in screenwriting, and with an empty wallet as his motivation, Keith can’t say no. Hoping to give minimal attention to his duties and focus on writing a new script, his attitude slowly begins to change when he meets Holly (Marisa TomeiAnger Management, The Wrestler), a single mum working two jobs to earn her degree with her own lessons to teach about second chances.

With a heavyweight supporting cast that includes Allison Janney (TV’s The West Wing, The Way Way Back), JK Simmons (Spider-Man, Whiplash) and Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows, Pride And Prejudice And Zombies), THE REWRITE is Grant’s first rom-com in five years and arguably one of his best ever. The film also successfully re-teams Grant with director Marc Lawrence (Music and Lyrics, Two Weeks Notice, Miss Congeniality) so, with Valentine’s Day around the corner, it’s also perfectly placed for anyone in need of a bit of rom or a bit of com in their lives.
