I agree that Jemaine was under-utilized.

I also agree with what you said about them, Diah. :)

Vladislov was like the Jemaine Clemaine of the vampire world, attempting to be cooler than he actually is, lol.

Jacob and I both loved it and we laughed our butts off! And the ending was sweet. :)

Wasn't the anticipation worth it, LauraK?

Can't wait for the DVD.

Happy to hear all of you enjoyed WWDITS. It's lovely reading all the glowing reviews from those who go to see it. :D

When I first watched it, I thought that Jemaine wasn't in the film as much as I thought he would be but when I watched it again, I noticed that he still manages to stand out because he had some of the best one-liners. Jemaine has also mentioned in interviews that he edited the first cut of the film and he was hardly in it so Taika had to include him in it more.

Jemaine's interview with Oregon Live: Jemaine Clement on vampire movies, Flight of the Conchords and 'Men in Black 3'
Jemaine's interview with Indiewire: Jemaine Clement on Vampire Obsession, 'What We Do in the Shadows' and His 'Flight of the Conchords' Legacy
Yahoo! Movies video: Ranking the Accuracy of Vampire Movies With the Experts From 'What We Do In the Shadows' + Financial Advice

I love the DVD although you US & Canadian peeps are going to have audio commentary which wasn't included in the NZ DVD release (reminds me of the Eagle vs Shark DVD situation when the region 2 DVD had the commentary) ;)'

That's amazing considering it has been in barely any theatres in the US.
What a modest guy - edits himself out of the film!

Anyhoo, any news on a US release date for the DVD?

Hi MM! :wave: It is doing very well in the US & Canada and it's even opened in more theaters than anticipated. Looks like it's going to gross over $2 million soon. :clap:

Yes, it's out on DVD (& Blu-ray) in the US on May 19th! It's available for pre-order on Amazon here.

Sterlin Harjo who is friends with Taika & Jemaine interviewed both of them for his podcast. They're really good, insightful interviews. 8)

I haven't listened to Taika's interview yet, but I loved Jemaine's. He's has had such an interesting life. He should write a book. Maybe be in a play with Bret. :wink: That was cheesy. Anyway, his growing up poor story beats mine.

I want a recording of him saying Wairarapa to be my text notification. :lol:

Hehe, I loved his pronunciation of Wairarapa too. It was nice getting more of an insight into both of Jemaine & Taika's family life/background in the interview. :)

I listened to Taika's interview. His upbringing was nothing like I would have imagined. I like him a bit more now. :P

I can definitely relate to some of their stories. A million cousins and not knowing for sure which belonged with which Aunt. :lol:

Now where's Bret's in-depth interview?

Yay is right! I want to own this film now! I loved it and want to share it. :D

Also, his shoes up there are reminiscent of the ones he wore at our meet n greet, way back in '09. I can't believe it's been that long.

I was thinking the mix and match socks might be his. That seems Taika-ish.

Those shoes are similar though.
