The stars were out on Friday night at the Tribeca Film Festival for the world premiere of 1950s crime drama ‘No Sudden Move’.
Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh’s latest film has an ensemble cast of star-studded performers including Don Cheadle, Jon Hamm, Ray Liotta, Julia Fox, David Harbour, Benicio del Toro and more.
The Knockturnal was on the scene at Battery Park for the premiere of the movie and spoke with several of the actors, who for many was their first time at an in-person event since the pandemic began.
Don Cheadle said it was “exhausting” getting out of the house and dressed to attend the premiere but said he’s “glad to be here with this film.”
“I really like it, I think it’s a really good one,” Cheadle said. “It’s great to be at an event like this!”
‘The subject matter as far as the history of Detroit and the information that Steven was able to – in a good way – smuggle into the film and talk about things like the redistricting and the redlining and the sort of nefarious way that the car companies and corporations at that time felt with the city in general.
Jon Hamm, who starred in the 1960s show Mad Men, joked that he loves doing period pieces because he said he looks “good in a very conservative haircut and a hat!”
Hamm continued, “When I read the script that Ed Solomon wrote, and I saw that Steven Soderbergh was attached to it I immediately said yes, and then when I realized who else was going to be in the movie it really was just an embarrassment of riches. Obviously Cheadle and Benicio, but David Harbour, Bill Duke, Amy Seimetz, whose work I’ve really loved over the years not only as an actor but as a filmmaker and Noah Jupe. The list goes on and on!”
David Harbour showed up in style with wife Lily Allen and – along with the rest of the cast – sang the praises of director Soderbergh, calling him a “genius”.
Actress Julia Fox said her favorite moment of filming was sharing an on-screen kiss with Benicio del Toro.
“We had a quick little smooch a few times and it was like, pinch me! Is this real?” she said.
Ray Liotta said there wasn’t one specific thing that stuck out in his mind as his favorite part of filming but said “it’s always fun making movies.”
16-year-old actor Noah Jupe said that despite only shooting for two weeks, it was an incredible experience. “When you get these people together you can’t really go wrong!” Jupe said.
‘No Sudden Move’ will be released on HBO Max on July 1.
