Joel Edgerton Attends 'Loving' Q&A at MoMA's 'Contenders' Screening

Joel Edgerton looks cool in a shiny blue jacket while stepping out for MoMA’s The Contenders screening of Loving held at the Museum of Modern Art on Thursday (November 17) in New York City.

The 42-year-old actor was joined by the movie’s writer and director Jeff Nichols as well as MoMA’s Chief Curator of Film Rajendra Roy.

The Contenders series is MoMA’s annual screening and Q&A, featuring the most influential films made in the past year that are earning awards season buzz.

The movie’s producer Colin Firth recently opened up about the decision to cast Joel and Ruth Negga in the interracial marriage drama.

“There was a discussion along the lines of ‘What about this big star, who could double or triple our budget?’” Colin told Entertainment Weekly. “Again, this was me with my producer’s hat on. But Jeff wanted to keep in within the parameters of his own vision. He knew what he wanted and he knew what he needed. He needed 40 days. He wanted to shoot on 35mm film. And he knew how much that would cost, so he wasn’t really interested in having more money if it meant making the slightest compromise in the integrity of the film. And, my God, how could we have done this film without Joel and Ruth?”

Ruth Negga Says It Was 'Very Important To Film 'Loving' Where The Historical Events Took Place

Ruth Negga is opening up about playing Mildred and Richard Loving with co-star Joel Edgerton in their much-buzzed about film Loving, which follows the story of the historical interracial couple whose marriage defied the anti-miscegenation laws placed in Virginia.

“When you see footage of things, when you see history, it’s very distant,” the 34-year-old actress recently expressed (via LA Times). “I think to walk in their footsteps, to see the walls that they were contained in, the walls that they had to plead guilty in, it sort of brings it all so much closer. Makes everything so much more urgent and specific.”

“I really think that there was a potent energy in Virginia where we were filming” Ruth added. “I think it was very important for Jeff [Nichols] to film there. It was super helpful for us. We were treading in their footstep. You could feel that energy. You could feel the reverence from everybody, the cast and crew, for this place, because of this couple.”

Ruth and Joel, 42, attended the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and InStyle‘s celebration of the 2017 Golden Globe Awards Season last night (November 10) alongside Moonlight stars Naomie Harris, Ashton Sanders, and Trevante Rhodes, Armie Hammer and his wife Elizabeth Chambers, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and his wife Sam Taylor-Johnson, Octavia Spencer, Linda Cardellini, Constance Zimmer and Carly Chaikin at Catch LA in West Hollywood, Calif.

FYI: Ruth is wearing a Valentino dress. Naomie is wearing a Ralph Lauren Collection dress paired with Nicholas Kirkwood pumps.

Bright is set in “a world where magical creatures live side by side with humans and the police have a division handling crimes involving magic. A human cop (Smith) is forced to work with an Orc (Edgerton) to find something that unsavory elements are prepared to kill for — a powerful wand,” according to THR.

Netflix reportedly paid over $90 million to finance the upcoming film, directed by David Ayer.
