Here’s an interview Mark did to The Daily Telegraph, again to promote Infinitely Polar Bear:

I loved the way your latest film, Infinitely Polar Bear, managed to tackle something as challenging as bipolar disorder with so much heart and humour. Was that what drew you to it?
Yes, I thought it did tackle a pretty vexed topic with a lot of humanity, which included a lot of love and a lot of humour.

I’ve battled depression since I was a teenager, and a lot of that has gone away since I’ve had my kids. It used to be acting was everything to me, now it’s my family.

You seem to gravitate to films that delve into confronting social issues: artificial insemination in The Kids Are All Right, sex addiction in Thanks for Sharing, HIV/AIDS in The Normal Heart and now bipolar disorder in Infinitely. What is it that appeals to you about these stories?
I guess I like to play with preconceptions about people. And these are interesting people we’re dealing with, because those sorts of social issues bring misconceptions and judgements. We’re not so different, all of us, but a lot of belief systems or hang-ups prevent us from realising that. The human heart is very similar from person to person. Storytelling is a really wonderful way of illustrating how common we are – it’s humanising; it makes it relatable.

You do it very well. And then sometimes, I guess it’s just fun to go and get green and play The Hulk.
Exactly. There’s teaching in acting and then sometimes you get to go and entertain, and it’s just pure sensation. I like to change it up for myself. I like to keep challenging people’s perception of me, too.

An article was published on The New Zealand Herald in order to promote Infinitely Polar Bear:

Few Hollywood A-listers move between big and small movies with the ease of double Oscar-nominee Mark Ruffalo. Before turning green and angry to battle an army of killer robots as the Hulk in next month’s hotly anticipated Avengers sequel Age of Ultron, he can be seen in the new JJ Abrams-produced domestic dramedy Infinitely Polar Bear.

That was probably the most significant thing I learned about mental illness — that maybe these things aren’t as horrible as we want to think they are. There’s actually a gift in our interactions with these kind of people, as well as the difficult parts.

In a casually raw performance that recalls his early breakout roles, Ruffalo plays Cam, a man suffering from bipolar disorder who must pull himself together to raise his two young daughters when his estranged wife (Zoe Saldana) heads off to business school.

The 70s-set film is based on the childhood experiences of its writer/director Maya Forbes, and it was her gently comedic take on what most films treat as pretty heavy subject matter that attracted Ruffalo, as the actor told TimeOut recently.

“Cam was committed to his family and I think that is what carries us through the more difficult times in the movie but also in our lives with people who are mentally ill.

There’s a lot of people who are dealing with psychological disabilities or mental illness and they have families and friends and people who love them.

“So a good way to broach what is a scary subject for a lot of people was with a lot of heart, a lot of honesty and a lot of humour and love. That was exciting to me and I think Maya does a really wonderful job and that’s what makes it relatable and watchable ultimately.”

Earlier this month Mark and Sunrise attended a special preview of Ethan Hawke’s new documentary ‘Seymour: An Introduction’ at St. Barts in New York City. Finally the site was updated with HQ pictures:

Watch two clips of Infinitely Polar Bear, and don’t get excited for the film release if you can!

Lots of stuff. Lots of stuff. Lots. Of. Stuff.
Its like that we’re celebrating the opening of the Avengers gate, that Superhero Hype helped find, with lots of behind the scenes and interviews footage. Check it:

Avengers: Age of Ultron is the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.

Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron opens in theaters on May 1, 2015.

Video     

To celebrate the Oscar weekend, Live with Kelly and Michael aired yesterday (20) a clip with some Oscar nominees/winners talking about their experiences and memories of the event. Watch the clip below, and screencaptures was added in our gallery.

Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana lead the movie that follows a manic-depressive father who attempts to raise his daughters following a breakdown after his wife goes to business school. A decent enough premise, but the depiction of the disease in the trailer comes across as both patronizing and cliché, and perhaps an insult to those who actually suffer this, and don’t get play the “it’s okay, I’m just being wacky” card. Watch it:

The film will be released next March 26!
