"That was the idea of the film: Can we get the audience to that point where they think, ‘Do it. Just do it,'?" Danny Boyle says about the most infamous moment in "127 Hours."

Danny Boyle didn’t exactly subscribe to the Romero school of zombies before helming the 2002 horror hit 28 Days Later. “I was on the fence about zombies, to be honest,” he told Yahoo Entertainment during a recent Director’s Reel interview. The 28 Days Later flesh eaters not only were fast, but punishingly strong, too — something that, per Boyle, had a surprising inspiration.
Many qualities bind the eclectic films of Danny Boyle: highly stylized aesthetics, great soundtracks, the introduction of future stars (Ewan McGregor, Cillian Murphy, Naomie Harris, Dev Patel), and, perhaps above all, constant pulses of energy. Boyle had a heap of U.K. theater productions and TV movies to his credit when he attained international acclaim with the 1994 black comedy-thriller Shallow Grave. While the Hitchcockian murder tale (which Boyle admitted was “stolen from the Coen brothers'” breakout Blood Simple) put him on the map, it was the 1996 adaptation of Irvine Welsh’s novel Trainspotting — about a group of heroin addicts living the high life in Edinburgh — that truly established the director’s style.

The cast of T2 Trainspotting dropped by The Graham Norton Show to chat about their much-anticipated sequel when the conversation turned to the first film. “There’s one thing we haven’t talked about,” host Graham Norton told the assembled cast of Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, and Robert Carlyle (and director Danny Boyle). “That is that iconic poster. The 1996 publicity campaign. Because, again, it broke the mold. That isn’t what a film poster looks like.”
A Trainspotting sequel had been rumored for years, but according to cast members, it wasn’t until they reunited at a secret meeting in London in 2015 that it felt like the project was truly going to happen. “There, for the first time, we were all back together again, in 20 years,” says Ewan McGregor in an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip from the upcoming T2: Trainspotting. In addition to McGregor (who played Renton), the meeting included Johnny Lee Miller (Sick Boy), Ewen Bremner (Spud), Robert Carlyle (Begbie), and director Danny Boyle.

Danny Boyle has spoken out about his latest film Steve Jobs, which despite solid reviews and an early Oscar-buzz has proved a disappointment in the U.S. box office, taking just $16.9 million so far and only just topping the Ashton Kutcher-led 2013 flop, Jobs. Steve Jobs proved a hit when it had a limited release in just four theaters in New York in L.A. on Oct 9, taking an average of $130,236 per venue, but flopped when it went wide two weeks later, and Boyle said he thought Universal “should have built more slowly.” Related: ‘Steve Jobs’ Doesn’t Click: Why Sony Was Right to Pass But the Oscar-winning director of Slumdog Millionaire said he “wouldn’t criticize” Universal’s release schedule, pointing to the “exemplary” way in which the studio had supported the film after it was dropped by Sony. Boyle, for whom Steve Jobs is the first film he hasn’t developed himself, will next move onto the long-awaited sequel to his 1996 breakout hit Trainspotting. Steve Jobs is released across the U.K. Nov 13.
The new biopic Steve Jobs doesn’t necessarily paint a flattering portrait of the late tech visionary. As played by Michael Fassbender, Jobs is often portrayed as cold and calculating, a businessman so determined to succeed that his colleagues, friends, and family members suffer as a result. Still, the director and cast of the film have nothing but the utmost respect for the former Apple and Pixar CEO, who passed away in 2011. “He’s like Henry Ford, but multiplied by a thousand,” said Fassbender, referencing the Ford Motor Company auto innovator (watch above).
Most biopics follow a certain formula — but in the Jobs-ian spirit of innovation, Steve Jobs invents its own. Written by Aaron Sorkin, the drama about the late Apple founder takes place in three acts, each taking place right before Jobs unveiled one of his game-changing personal computers: the Macintosh, and NeXT computer, and the iMac. Yahoo Movies talked to the cast and crew — including stars Michael Fassbender and Seth Rogen, director Danny Boyle, and writer Sorkin — about how their unusual biopic came together. So if I could put them all in the minutes leading up to one of his product launches, when they’re all backstage, then maybe I’ll have done something different, and maybe that thing will be good.” Boyle praised Sorkin’s approach of “shining a spotlight so intensely on a realtime 40 minutes,” while co-star Michael Stuhlbarg noted that the film could have easily been a stage play.
‘Trainspotting’ (Everett) By Kyle Buchanan, Vulture Danny Boyle is currently making the rounds to discuss his terrific new movie Steve Jobs, but while chatting with Vulture, I couldn’t let the filmmaker promote his current project without first setting my mind at ease about one to come. Boyle next intends to make a sequel to his unforgettable 1996 film Trainspotting, and as enticing as it is to imagine Ewan McGregor, Robert Carlyle, and all the rest returning to their roles as smack-addicted Scottish lowlifes, I confessed to Boyle that I was a little apprehensive about a 20-years-later look. When it comes to doing another Trainspotting, they were very nervous, because for all of them, it’s a large part of their reputation and they feel very protective towards their character.” Related: Just How Bankable Is Aaron Sorkin at the Box Office?
Michael Stuhlbarg, Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet in ‘Steve Jobs’ (Universal) Steve Jobs was the master of launching a new product, but now, his friends and family are doing their best to throw cold water on the premiere of the new film about the late Apple co-founder. According to a new report in the Wall Street Journal, Jobs’s wife and Apple colleagues have been unhappy with Steve Jobs, a new film written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Danny Boyle.
Evidently, Danny Boyle isn’t all too concerned with making Steve Jobs look like … Steve Jobs. The 127 Hours director is in the midst of filming Steve Jobs, his biopic of the famed Apple honcho, starring Michael Fassbender in the title role. The shot finds Fassbender-as-Jobs recreating the famous ads for NeXT, the computer company that Jobs founded following his ouster from Apple in 1985.
