Theron talked about releasing The Old Guard straight to Netflix
'Somehow it was meant to come out in ,' Theron says of The Old Guard, which hit Netflix last summer.
'And it was meant to just be on people's TVs. In the end, that's why I think it was so successful. It thematically speaks to things that people were going through. And so part of me is like, 'So what if it wasn't on a big screen?' I'm not mad at the fact that probably more people saw The Old Guard than any other movie that I've ever made, outside of Fast & Furious, in a theater.'
Jordan talked streaming services: 'Great material can live anywhere,' Jordan says. 'It's really about the audience and how they want to consume it. And that's not really for me to decide.'
And he also touched on the late Chadwick Boseman
'Our relationship was a very personal one and had a lot of great moments—some that I couldn't fully appreciate and fully understand until now. I wish I had more time to have our relationship evolve, and grow, and become closer and stronger. We got a concentrated dose of Chadwick. He did more in his 43 years of life than most people have done in a lifetime. And he was here for the time he was supposed to be here, and he had his impact, and his legacy. That was clear with the abundance of love that he has gotten from people all over the world. There are generations of kids coming up that look to him. It's incredible. And losing him was…Yeah, man, it hurt. It hurt a lot. That's probably what made me cry the most this year.'
Cohen said people should take his work with a grain of salt: 'I am a comedian. I am an actor. I am not a political theorist, I am not a politician, I am not an academic. I would take whatever I say with a pinch of salt.'
