The Playlist Podcast returns for an in-depth conversation with Jeremy Saulnier and Anton Yelchin about their new new film, “Green Room,” opening this Friday in limited release and expanding nationwide April 29th.
The film is Saulnier’s followup to his breakout film “Blue Ruin,” and both films share more than just a color in the title. “Green Room” is an extremely tense, visceral cinematic experience, following a touring punk band that takes a gig in rural Oregon at a venue run by neo-nazis. When a murder is witnessed, things go from bad to worse as the film turns on a dime into a desperate survival horror action picture. (Check out Oli Lyttelton’s glowing review from last year’s Cannes premiere.) Fun fact: the interview took place in the same Portland, OR studio where the actor’s who make up the film’s punk band, The Ain’t Rights, rehearsed before the production started. Listen to our podcast with Saulnier and Yelchin about the movie, plus the rumors about Saulnier directing the spy flick “Defection” and more.
