You hear Patrick Stewart, and the first image you get is Captain Jean-Luc Picard of Star Trek: The Next Generation, or Professor Charles Xavier of X-Men. Both his characters often has a calm demeanour, a strong mind, with a good will making them great peaceful leaders and excellent mediators between parties that don’t agree with each other.

Then, you’re told he’ll play the leader of a group of white supremacists in a thriller. “Huh…”
Not that I’m worried he won’t be able to do an excellent performance. Only intrigued to see Sir Stewart be the bad guy. Besides, that’s not his first time to be the antagonist. Let’s just hope it won’t like Lifeforce (1985):
Green Room has been screened at various film festivals throughout the world since last year, and will be in theatres for the general public in the coming months. Well, in the UK and the US, at least. In Japan, nobody knows.
