At the Berlinale this year we ticked off a real bucket list interview, having the opportunity to speak to Hollywood stars, and all-round gifted actors, Adam Sandler & Paul Dano, as they were in the German capital to discuss their latest film, the sci-fi Spaceman.

Speaking also to the film’s director Johan Renck, we discussed the themes of the film, and how all of the three aforementioned talent balance their time, and whether they believe they’re making the very most of it. We also speak about the voices in our heads (it makes sense when you watch the interviews), as well as their good luck charms, while Renck speaks about working with such an illustrious cast. Be sure to watch both interviews, in their entirety, below.

Six months into a solitary research mission to the edge of the solar system, an astronaut, Jakub (Adam Sandler), realizes that the marriage he left behind might not be waiting for him when he returns to Earth. Desperate to fix things with his wife, Lenka (Carey Mulligan), he is helped by a mysterious creature from the beginning of time he finds hiding in the bowels of his ship. Hanuš (voiced by Paul Dano) works with Jakub to make sense of what went wrong before it is too late.

Spaceman comes to Netflix on March 1st
