British director Rupert Sanders: I went to America with a very specific idea of what I wanted to do
Director Rupert Sanders first film was Snow White & The Huntsman. "It's a strange beast, the blockbuster. I think Chris Nolan does it very well, between The Dark Knight and Inception – two films that grossed a billion dollars, which are also intelligent and articulate and visually artistic. But there aren't many."
"I don't like the popcorn, the 'world's going to end tomorrow' kind of nonsense. Ours is not a formulaic blockbuster, but it occupies the space. I think the studio feel it can be as financially successful as those kind of films, but with a bit more emotional resonance."
