M.U.S.E. had the opportunity to speak with Alexander himself, Ed Oxenbould from the Disney film Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. We talk about the film, working with Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner along with his cast mates Dylan Minnette and Kerris Dorsey and much more.
Disneyâ€™s â€œAlexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Dayâ€follows the exploits of 11-year-old Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) as he experiences the most terrible and horrible day of his young lifeâ€”a day that begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by one calamity after another. But when Alexander tells his upbeat family about the misadventures of his disastrous day, he finds little sympathy and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him. He soon learns that heâ€™s not alone when his mom (Jennifer Garner), dad (Steve Carell), brother (Dylan Minnette) and sister (Kerris Dorsey) all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Anyone who says there is no such thing as a bad day just hasnâ€™t had one.
â€œAlexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,â€ directed by Independent Spirit Award-winner Miguel Arteta (â€œThe Good Girl,â€ â€œCedar Rapids,â€ â€œYouth in Revoltâ€) from a screenplay by Rob Lieber.
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day opens tonight and in full release tomorrow October 10.
