Josh Horowtiz talks with Chloë about If I Stay’s Soundtrack

Posted by vera in If I Stay Tour, Interviews Ι 2 comments

Here’s part of the interview Josh Horowtiz from MTV did with Chloë Grace Moretz on Monday! So, once Chloë tweeted she helped find two songs for the If I Stay soundtrack and it seems the ‘Halo‘ cover was one of them!

One of our favorite movie-music moments came during one of the film’s more, ahem, steamy moments — we’ll spare the details of what went down onscreen for spoilers sake, but know that the “Halo” cover by Ane Brun & Linnéa Olsson is really freaking awesome. Which is why we had to ask Chloë Grace Moretz about it when we chatted with her after the film. As it turns out, Moretz loves the Beyoncé cover just as much as we do — in fact, she was the one who picked it out!

I found this artist [Brun] who is like this small artist, who pretty much… she sings with her cello,” Moretz told MTV News. “It’s one of the only people I’ve ever seen that actually uses a cello as their acoustic instrument they bring onstage. She’s amazing! I found her on like, YouTube. I sent it to the head of MGM and to my director, and I was like, ‘she’s really good, we should try and work with her.’”

Dream come true, much?

Box Office: ‘If I Stay’ to Overshadow ‘Sin City 2′

Posted by vera in Articles, If I Stay Ι 0 Comments

“If I Stay” is the latest attempt to capture this coveted demographic, and while the low-budget weepy won’t hit the lofty numbers of “The Fault in Our Stars,” it’s shaping up to sell a lot of tickets along with Kleenex.

It looks like it could be a breakout based on the reactions on Facebook and Twitter,” said Phil Contrino, vice president and chief analyst of BoxOffice.com. “It seems to be connecting with the same crowds that lined up for ‘Fault in Our Stars.’ This month has had a lot of male-skewing action pictures, so the timing is good.

Look for “If I Stay,” which is being backed by Warner Bros./New Line and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and is based on a best-seller by Gayle Forman, to make $18 million to $20 million when it debuts in 2,902 locations this weekend. If tracking holds, that would represent a nice return for the $11 million production. The film centers on a young girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) who finds herself in a coma after a car accident kills her parents and brother — in that state, she’s forced to choose between living or dying. It’s a premise tailor made to send viewers into paroxysms of grief.

Gayle Forman and Chloë Moretz talk ‘If I Stay’ with USA Today

Posted by vera in If I Stay Tour, Interviews Ι 0 Comments

Again, another great interview. And this one was accompanied by a STUNNING photo portrait of Gayle Forman and Chloë Grace Moretz that we added to the gallery.

It’s August, but Chloe Grace Moretzarrives for lunch at the Trump SoHo Hotel shivering and tightly wrapped in a baggy black sweater over a pleated white skirt and top.

“It’s cold!,” says the pretty blond star of If I Stay, which opens Friday.

Moretz says she read the If I Stay script and was intrigued, but really fell in love when she read the book. She emailed Forman and the two struck up an online friendship long before they met last year. The two recently bonded on a multi-city tour, where they signed books and posters and screened the movie for fans.

For Forman, who visited the set in Vancouver, Moretz was a dream choice as Mia.

“I thought ‘who else can handle this role,’ because really it is two separate roles,” says Forman, 44, mother of two young girls. “There’s the vulnerability and the falling in love and then the Mia of the accident, who’s in this ghost-like state but who also has such emotionally wrenching scenes.”

Moretz, who kicked some you-know-what in Kick-Ass and its sequel, says tapping into her softer side was a challenge. “I think because I’m a young actress I have issues showing emotional vulnerability, being 17. I am OK with being fierce and cool and hard, I am killing people, whatever, but when I have to show love and happiness and elation, it’s scary. You’re opening up a side of yourself that no one sees.”

And then there was the cello. Mia is a cello prodigy who auditions for Julliard, and Moretz felt it was central to the character to take lessons. While she’s hardly ready forCarnegie Hall in real life (in the movie, she says, it’s “Frankenstein with my head on another girl’s body”), it was all about “learning the emotion of the cello.”
