To celebrate the release of BlackBerry, which opens in US cinemas this weekend, we had the pleasure of chatting with the film’s two leads about the true story behind one of the world’s most sought-after mobile phones.

‘BlackBerry’ tells the story of Mike Lazaridis (Baruchel) and Jim Balsillie (Howerton), the two men that charted the course of the spectacular rise and catastrophic demise of the world’s first smartphone.

Speaking to Howerton and Baruchel, we talk about the crazy story behind the rise and fall of the BlackBerry, the lure of working with director Matt Johnson (who also stars) and his unique take on the story, why the film doesn’t hit the usual “true story” notes and feels fresh and unique, the art of wig and hair acting and, of course, Howerton’s chum Rob McElhenney’s mad time down at Wrexham.
