Eric Bana: 'Ricky Gervais Should Be Banned From Singing'


Eric Bana Ricky Gervais Charlie Hunnam

The Troy star shared a trailer with the Extras actor during filming of Netflix Originals movie Special Correspondents. And in an interview with British newspaper The Metro, Eric, 47, revealed life on set certainly had its high and low points.

While the Australian actor, born to Croatian-German parents, enjoyed working with Ricky, he didn't much love being subjected to Ricky's musical attempts through the paper thin wall of a very small trailer.

"The best thing was being allowed to have fun at work. The worst thing was sharing a very small trailer with a parted wall," he revealed to Metro.

Eric Bana Told Off Ricky Gervais For Laughing During Takes


Eric Bana Ricky Gervais

The Munich actor stars alongside the British funnyman in the upcoming Netflix satirical comedy film, about a radio journalist and his technician who fake their own kidnapping during an uprising in South America, and Eric was worried he would struggle to keep a straight face during the shoot.

However, Eric had no need to worry as his co-star and director was far worse at staying in character during the funny moments, and the 47-year-old even had to have a stern word with Ricky, 54, about getting his act together.

"It's been so long since I've gone to work and been allowed to have a laugh, (where) having fun is actually encouraged, so it was a bit of a shock to the system," Eric told London Live TV. "I was concerned that I was going to get in trouble for laughing but it was kind of the other way around, it was me telling him off to kinda pull it together so we could get through some of the takes."

The Finest Hours Review

Excellent

With its rousing, old-fashioned tone, this fact-based epic is properly thrilling and inspirational, a tale of heroism that almost seems too good to be true. But it's the astonishing story of a real sea rescue carried out by ordinary men who rose to the challenge. It's also expertly directed by Craig Gillespie (Million Dollar Arm) to bring out subtle character detail amid the exhilarating action.

The events took place in a sleepy Massachusetts fishing town in the dead of winter 1952, where Bernie (Chris Pine) is an earnest Coast Guard sailor who has just agreed to marry his strong-willed sweetheart Miriam (Holliday Grainger). Then one night a fierce storm breaks an oil tanker in half just off the coast, and Bernie is sent by his aloof commander Daniel (Eric Bana) to lead a rescue mission. He takes his colleague Richard (Ben Foster) and two young crewmen (Kyle Gallner and John Magaro) with him, heading into the dangerous sea swells. Meanwhile on the tanker's still-floating stern section, engineer Ray (Casey Affleck) becomes the leader of a cantankerous 32-man crew, steering the wreckage toward the relative safety of a shoal. And in these conditions, the odds are in nobody's favour.

Unusually, despite pitch-black conditions with driving rain and swelling seas, the on-screen action is crisp and clear. Gillespie uses vivid effects and clever camerawork to keep the audience right in the thick of things, conveying a vivid sense of scale while detailing the connections between each string of events. And because we understand what's happening and who these people are, the set-pieces are literally breathtaking. This is partially due to the fact that these are normal people who are very easy to identify with, from Pine's inarticulate but tenacious sailor to Affleck's reluctant natural leader. Intriguingly, Grainger's Miriam is the film's feistiest character, a woman who simply can't sit still and wait for news.

The Finest Hours Trailer


It's 1952 and a routine shipment is being undertaken by the crew of an oil tanker travelling along the coast of Cape Cod. However, little did they know of a disastrous oncoming storm that would brutally attack New England like never before. As bad luck would have it, the crew on board the vessel find their tanker suddenly ripped in half by the hurricane and they are forced to await the Coast Guard for rescue unable to move from their sinking boat. 30 men are trapped, not knowing whether anyone was coming to rescue them, not knowing whether or not this was their last night on Earth. After all, it would be a suicide mission for any lifeboat to attempt a rescue in these conditions, but that's exactly what happens. A feat of outstanding bravery for this East Coast Guard.
