“I feel wildly critical,” Evans confessed. “Being in the editing room is a hellish, hellish process. You see all your own little tricks and clutches and gimmicks. You have to walk in there with some thick skin.”
Evans and actress Alice Eve star as Nick Vaughan and Brooke Dalton, strangers who find themselves stranded in New York for the night with only 80 bucks and two non-functional credit cards between the two of them. Through the course of the night, the strangers become each other’s confidants as they work to sort out their love lives.
Eve believed that her co-star was adept at juggling all of his responsibilities for his directorial debut.
“You have to hold a lot of things in your head when you’re a director,” Eve said. “He did that, and managed to perform in the movie and in sub-zero temperatures in the New York winter.”
Shooting exclusively at night during wintertime on the East Coast, Eve said there was a struggle to stay warm behind the scenes.
“We had to sit in a car with it’s engine running,” Eve said. “I also wore these patches that had ski warmers in them, and I became a Michelin Man. (Evans) is Captain America and was immune to all human frailties.”
The after-party, sponsored by Heineken, was held at Aventine Hollywood. The beverages flowed and guests were offered a gamut of food choices from popcorn to zucchini bites to delectable wood-stove-cooked pizza.
“Before We Go” is available now on video-on-demand and opens in theaters on September 4.
