It’s summer movies in Studio 360 this week — big directors going small, small actors going big, and girls committing felonies. Vampire auteur Joss Whedon explains the appeal of a micro-budget Shakespeare film. Michael Shannon attempts to thwart the man of steel. Nancy Jo Sales, author of The Bling Ring, explains how Hollywood’s bad girls keep getting worse. And graphic design makes the news as Apple’s new operating system breaks a bad habit.
This week, on the eve of the Tony Awards, Studio 360 meets some of the stars who gave Broadway a remarkable year. Tom Hanks and George C. Wolfe tell Kurt Andersen about working on the last play by the late Nora Ephron, and Tim Minchin performs some songs from Matilda, the category-killing musical. And we begin our epic search for the best high school band ever! Ready, set, upload.
