    Geena Davis Career Interview: Thelma and Louise, The Fly, Beetlejuice and More

    Geena Davis is a force in this industry. Not only is she a hugely talented Academy Award-winner with a slew of iconic titles on her filmography like Thelma & Louise, A League of Their Own, Beetlejuice, and more, but she’s also actively working to change this industry for the better via the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media and also through the Bentonville Film Festival. If that’s not the definition of a perfect guest for Collider Ladies Night, I don’t know what is!
    With Bentonville having just celebrated its eighth year, Davis took the time to join me for a Collider Ladies Night interview to revisit some of her past titles and discuss exactly how those experiences sparked the goals she fights for today.
    Find out what she had to see about Beetlejuice, Thelma and Louise, and so much more on this edition of Collider Ladies Night!

    Pre-Party: Meet The Umbrella Academy Star Ritu Arya

    Pre-Party: Meet The Umbrella Academy Star Ritu Arya

    The cast of Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy was electric in Season 1. One’s got to imagine it’s a challenge to join such an ensemble and encourage the audience to fall for your character just as hard, but Ritu Arya did just that in the second season as Lila Pitts.
    When we first meet Lila in the hit Netflix series, her adoptive mother, The Handler (Kate Walsh), has her assisting in her mission to overthrow the authority at The Commission so she can assume control. However, after succeeding in that plan, Lila comes to learn that The Handler is responsible for the murder of her biological mother and stepfather, putting their entire relationship in question. Diego (David Castañeda) and the Umbrellas try to convince Lila that they can be her family, but after The Handler is shot, Lila opts to take off with the briefcase.
    Season 3 picks up immediately after the events of Season 2 with the Umbrellas making their way home sweet home to present-day New York — or so they think. Their home now belongs to The Sparrow Academy, an alternative version of their super-powered family. Ultimately, Lila does make her way back to the group to test this notion of family in an unexpected way; she tells Diego that they had a son together, Stanley (Javon Walton).
    With The Umbrella Academy Season 3 now available to watch — or, let’s get real, to binge on Netflix, Arya joined us for an episode of Collider Ladies Night Pre-Party to retrace her steps in the industry and discuss how she scored a role on one of the streamer’s hottest shows.

    Sadie Sink Interview: From Broadway Dreams to Stranger Things

    Sadie Sink Interview: From Broadway Dreams to Stranger Things

    Sadie Sink’s star is soaring. And it has been ever since Stranger Things 2 hit Netflix in October of 2017. But since, Sink has made the absolute most of every single opportunity to come her way, proving her boundless range and astronomical promise in this industry. 
    Not only is she a sheer force in her first lead role in a feature film playing Ziggy in Fear Street 1978, but she also shines in Taylor Swift’s All Too Well: The Short Film, will star in Darren Aronofsky’s next film, The Whale, and, to top it all off, she delivers what I truly believe is an Emmy nomination-worthy performance in Stranger Things 4. Sink is a true standout in front of the camera, so it’s shocking to think that there was a time when Sink envisioned her career being solely on the stage, not on screen.
    While we wait for Strange Things 4 Volume 2 to drop on Netflix on July 1st, Sink joined me for an episode of Collider Ladies Night to recap her journey from her earliest inspirations to Stranger Things megastar.
    Hear all about her time working on the stage, how she made the pivot to screen, what she imagines Max went through between Stranger Things 3 and 4, what it was like filming "Dear Billy," and so much more in this interview!

    Pre-Party: Meet The Summer I Turned Pretty Star Lola Tung

    Pre-Party: Meet The Summer I Turned Pretty Star Lola Tung

    If you've binged Prime Video's The Summer I Turned Pretty, I'm willing to bet you want to know everything about the film's star, newcomer Lola Tung! If you fit that description, you've come to the right place. In this episode of Collider Ladies Night Pre-Party, we recap how Tung went from playing the Tin Man in a school production of The Wizard of Oz to headlining the latest Jenny Han adaption for Amazon.
    Tung leads the series as Belly, a teenager who always spends her summers at Cousins Beach with her family and their close friends the Fishers. Belly's always been the youngest of the bunch, the little sister to her brother Steven (Sean Kaufman) and also to the Fisher boys, Conrad (Christopher Briney) and Jeremiah (Gavin Casalegno). That kind of connection and coming-of-age awkwardness hasn't done much for Belly's crush on Conrad, but this summer is different. This is the summer Belly "turned pretty."
    Check out this The Summer I Turned Pretty interview to get to know Tung and to hear all about her journey from studying drama in school to tackling her very first professional acting gig.

    Leslie Bibb Career Interview: Iron Man, Private Parts, Popular Playing Satan and More

    Leslie Bibb Career Interview: Iron Man, Private Parts, Popular Playing Satan and More

    Leslie Bibb did it. She put in the work, honed her craft, powered through the lows, and now tackles one film or television project after the next. Is it smooth sailing? Not always, but thanks to a journey that included a whole lot of determination and excellent mentorship, Bibb now gets opportunities like God’s Favorite Idiot, a new Netflix series that lets her swing for the fences playing Satan.
    The show is created by Ben Falcone who also stars in it as Clark. One day, Clark is struck by lightning and the next, he glows. Turns out, that lightning strike wasn’t a random occurrence. It happens because Clark’s been chosen by God to help spread peace in an effort to ward off an impending apocalypse. Someone he’ll have to go up against in that pursuit? Bibb as Satan.
    With God’s Favorite Idiot now available to stream on Netflix, Bibb joined us for an episode of Collider Ladies Night to revisit some of her journey from hitting it big with Popular to scoring a dream opportunity during the COVID-19 pandemic.
    Check out what she had to say about working on Private Parts, Iron Man, Trick 'r Treat, God's Favorite Idiot, and so much more in this interview!

    DeWanda Wise on Jurassic World Dominion, Exiting Captain Marvel and More

    DeWanda Wise on Jurassic World Dominion, Exiting Captain Marvel and More

    If you’re not familiar with DeWanda Wise, get ready for that to change because she is one of the best new additions to the Jurassic franchise since the release of the 1993 original.
    Come June 10th, you’ll get to meet Kayla Watts in Jurassic World Dominion. She’s a contract pilot who gets gigs from Biosyn, a biotech company that created a safe haven for dinosaurs in the Dolomites in Italy. She’s usually all business — complete an assignment, get the money, move on — but when she crosses paths with Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) and Owen (Chris Pratt), she’s compelled to change course.
    In honor of Jurassic World Dominion’s big debut, Wise took some time to join us for an episode of Collider Ladies Night. While Dominion may mark her very first massive studio blockbuster, Wise has been busy racking up impressive titles for quite some time including Spike Lee’s Netflix series She’s Gotta Have It, the delightful romantic comedy Someone Great, and so much more.
    Hear all about it on this edition of Collider Ladies Night!

Best interview ever

Kristian Harloff is the best interviewer. Not asking about the most recent events but about a person’s whole life and career. He really tries to get to know a person. Everyone needs to listen!
