Björgvin Arnarson chats up Chucky with Vaughn Lowery in 360 MAGAZINE exclusive.

BJÖRGVIN ARNARSON – CHUCKY

Listen to Björgvin Arnarson and Vaughn Lowery chat all things CHUCKY on 360 MAG Apple/Spotify podcast HERE.

Björgvin Arnarson plays ‘Devon’ on the hit TV series, CHUCKY.

Björgvin is an up-and-coming American television actor with a fraternal twin brother. In 2019, this biracial (Icelandic father and Floridian mother) boy wonder made his acting debut as a guest star on Family Time. When asked about his early acting experiences, Arnarson said, “I always liked performing. I used to do community theater back then, I also made short films with my brother… Then my mom asked, ‘Why don’t you start auditioning?’ I replied, ‘Sure!’… I did one commercial, a low-budget film, some horror movies, and a book trailer. I booked some small things and then booked CHUCKY.” 

Subsequently, Arnarson broke into film with a supporting role in horror, starring Vadhir Derbez and Guy Pearce, The Seventh Day. Additionally, he solidified a bit part in Hulu’s hit comedy series, PEN15, earning numerous credits in a short span. When questioned about daily set life, he asserts, “I never know what scene we’re shooting until the day of, so I have to be prepared to be super dramatic or super not dramatic.” He further elaborates, “Shooting out of order is interesting to me …like we’re shooting episode 3 but it’s only the end scene, and we’ll shoot the beginning later.” 

Björgvin portrays Devon Evans in the TV version of the cult classic, CHUCKY, premiering October 5. “I was on my computer playing games, my dad told me that I booked it. I was like ‘Oh Dang Okay!’” Arnarson recalled the day he got the role. “The first thing I did was watch all of the Chucky movies.” 

Born into a family that is both artistic and supportive, it is not surprising that Björgvin Arnarson is an eclectic actor with enormous dedication. Arnarson mentioned that he has a twin brother who is a talented musician and ballet dancer, “We’re fraternal, not identical, but he is three minutes older, he always says that, but whatever.” When they were babies, his mother danced and sang for them, and they soon found out that his father was once in a band and performed in the theater.

While this tailspin continues to earn honors, Arnarson enjoys reading comics, playing the piano and being an active company in the local artistic scene. “I like photography, digital art… putting things together into one big piece… filmmaking, mixed media, Manga… and I’m a big music guy,” Arnarson said.

DEVON EVANS is a boy-next-door and true crime addict who runs a podcast called “Hackenslash,” which sheds light on local crime in his hometown of Hackensack. Evans is hell-bent on making sense of the mysterious Hackensack tragedies, not only from the past but also from the present. Devon is a student at Perry Middle School and is dating “Jack Wheeler” (Zachary Arthur).

CHUCKY is a continuation of the emblematic cinema franchise that retraces the murderous events of the famous killer doll. In the television series, Chucky encounters former allies, sworn enemies and new prey, as he tries to inspire fear, nervousness and chaos wherever he goes.

After his horrible plot to invade America’s children’s hospitals was thwarted in the first season, Chucky now seeks revenge on those he blames, surviving teens Jake (Zackary Arthur), Devon (Björgvin Arnarson) and Lexy (Alyvia Alyn Lind), along with his ex-Tiffany ( his sworn enemy).

The series averaged 11.6 million viewers in season 1. Season 2 will premiere on October 5 (trailer) on SYFY and USA Networks.

ADDITIONAL BJÖRGVIN QUOTES:

“In season one, I was pretty nervous,” Arnarson confessed, “but going into season two, it feels more like second nature, I can focus more and get into the character.” 

“Working with the doll is pretty interesting, you get to see all the things that go behind it. it is not super hard working with it because it feels like a person.”

 Key art HERE and new images HERE

Cudi commented, Entergalactic is everything I’ve always wanted to do, create a long-form visual companion to an album. It all started with the music which helped bring this storyline and these characters to life. Entergalactic is unlike anything I’ve ever done, certainly my most ambitious project to date; I can’t wait for you to finally experience it.

He initially set the stage for the album with “Do What I Want.” Right out of the gate, it amassed 11.7 million Spotify streams and counting. Beyond plugs from HYPEBEASTXXLNME, and more, Stereogum proclaimed, ‘Do What I Want’ is a chilled-out track with an even, skittering beat with Cudi rolling through lyrics about feeling settled and creatively powerful.

Cudi also serves as an EP on Entergalactic alongside Kenya Barris, through their respective production companies Mad Solar and Khalabo Ink Society.

Kid Cudi is about to complete the North American leg of his To the Moon – 2022 World Tour.

Netflix Wednesday Adams Family cast Illustration VIA 360 Magazine

NETFLIX REVEALS WEDNESDAY

The streaming platform reveals the image of Tim Burton’s Addams Family members in ‘Wednesday’.

Fans of Tim Burton and the Addams Family are overwhelmed with excitement. The new Netflix series entitled Wednesday, directed in its first four episodes by the renowned director who has signed films such as Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands, who will also be in charge of the executive production of all the fiction, will be launched on the streaming video platform next fall. The first details about its format are already known.

For now, Netflix has released the first images of the actors who, with Jenna Ortega in the lead in the role of the dreadful Wednesday, make up the cast of this spin-off.

In a first picture made public of the entire Addams family — The streaming platform already released a teaser presenting its main protagonist alone last month of June — and in others collected by Vanity Fair magazine, fans have been able to find out what Morticia‘s characters will look like, represented by Cahterin Zeta-Jone herself; Pugsley, Wednesday‘s brother who is played on this occasion by Isaac Ordonez and lastly, Gomez, who actor Luis Guzmán will play.

Collen Atwood, in charge of wardrobe

Tim Burton’s trusted costume designer and winner of four Academy Awards for Memoirs of a Gheisha, Chicago, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and Alice in Wonderland will dress the Addams Family. Netflix has allowed us to see the result of Collen Atwood’s work in her trailer.

Atwood, staying true to the vignettes of the Addams family that were published in The New Yorker, has designed for Morticia, the matriarch of the clan, a very tight black dress with a pleat at the hip and flared sleeves that give the necessary empowerment to his character so that it makes her shine.

Wednesday, the great protagonist, will also appear with a reinterpretation of the classic buttoned dress with a collar and shirt sleeves that she has already worn in many other previous Addams family audiovisual productions.

In this case, Atwood wanted to design a much longer garment for her and had it combined with thick black stockings and black patent leather shoes. This is the color of Wednesday, and she couldn’t give it up.

Finally, the male clothing designs are also elegant, sober, and with the somber touch, that fiction requires. Pugsley will wear Dr. Martens-style boots, shorts, and a sweater with horizontal stripes that help achieve the effect of a somewhat innocent boy.

Official teaser available HERE

Spiderhead on Netflix via 360 MAGAZINE

SPIDERHEAD

Netflix will release the SPIDERHEAD Original Motion Picture Score on June 17, 2022 with music composed by accomplished composer Joseph Trapanese. The soundtrack is available to pre-save now on all digital service providers: HERE. A vinyl soundtrack will also be available – further details to follow. You can now listen to, Acknowledge, an exclusive track from the soundtrack: HERE.

Trapanese reunites with director Joseph Kosinski with whom he previously worked on TRON: Legacy, Oblivion, and Only The Brave. Trapanese is best known for his sleek score work for blockbuster films like Straight Outta Compton, The Greatest Showman and the Raid Series.

SPIDERHEAD, a genre-blending thriller directed by Joseph Kosinski and starring Chris Hemsworth, Miles Teller, Jurnee Smollett, Mark Paguio and Tess Haurbich, will be released on Netflix globally on June 17, 2022.

“Joseph Kosinski’s visionary filmmaking has always demanded equally distinctive music, and I’m thrilled to reunite with Joe on SPIDERHEAD”, says Joseph Trapanese. “From the moment I read George Saunders’ unforgettable short story and Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick’s gripping screenplay, I was haunted by the sound of choirs, cellos, and bass clarinets, and immediately set to writing music for Abnesti’s laboratory. Thanks to Joe, editor Stephen Mirrione, and music editor Bryan Lawson, these original ideas, along with the unexpected song choices, became the sonic fabric of the Spiderhead. I’m honored to share the score along with these original sketches on this album release from Netflix Music.”

Director Joseph Kosinski said, “The music for Spiderhead had to express more emotions than you can fit in a MobiPak and Joe absolutely delivered.  His score is as innovative and distinct as George Saunders’ story.”
