Kristen Stewart and her co-stars had no idea what they were getting themselves into when they signed up for Underwater.

The Charlie’s Angels actress stars alongside Vincent Cassel and T.J. Miller in the sci-fi horror, which follows a team of aquatic scientists who have to fight for survival after an earthquake devastates their subterranean lab, leaving them trapped underwater with much bigger and scarier problems.

Stewart, who plays Norah Price, revealed to Entertainment Weekly that she didn’t anticipate all the challenges involved in filming this movie, including the weight of their metal suits and her aversion to small spaces.

“The suits were really heavy, honestly. We couldn’t move around. I really don’t like being held down, I don’t like confined spaces, I’m not a strong swimmer,” she explained. “The reason that, like, huge f**king surly dudes who typically do action movies do them is because they’re actually really hard and scary and they hurt.

“I think none of us in the movie — except for maybe Vincent, who’s, like, a f**king wild banshee — really knew what we were getting ourselves into. And that’s where there’s some comedy in the movie every once in a while; in the most dire situations you kind of laugh in a funeral. That’s kind of what it felt like to make the movie as well. Like we were all dying!”

The 29-year-old, who has shown a preference for indie movies instead of blockbusters in recent years, also admitted that she hadn’t ever made a movie on such a large scale, and she was excited to see the final product almost three years after production wrapped.

“It was not an easy movie to make — really long and just drippy and cold and f**king hard. I want to see how we all reacted in such precarious circumstances. It really pulls out the best and worst parts of people,” shared Kristen.

The Emoji Movie wins big at Razzies

The Emoji Movie scooped top honours at the Golden Raspberry Awards on Saturday night (03Mar18).

The animated movie, which featured the vocal talents of T.J. Miller, Anna Faris, James Corden and Patrick Stewart, landed the dubious gongs for Worst Picture, Worst Screen Combo, Worst Director for Tony Leondis, and Worst Screenplay.

In a statement, Razzies organisers branded the film a talking poop opus, and said “Hollywood’s recycled trash heap attained an all-time high” and saw a “toxic-level lack of originality” in movies in 2017.

Ahead of the awards, organisers said 87 of the top-earning 100 films last year were “sequels, remakes or rip-offs”.

Other winners at the 38th Golden Raspberry Awards included Worst Actor Tom Cruise for The Mummy, Worst Supporting Actress Kim Basinger for Fifty Shades Darker, and Tyler Perry, who landed Worst Actress for playing Madea again in BOO 2!: A Madea Halloween.

The worst supporting actor award was given to Mel Gibson for comedy Daddy’s Home 2.

The tongue-in-cheek awards ceremony is traditionally held in Los Angeles the day before the Academy Awards.

Awards organisers courted controversy this year, as they introduced a special In Memoriam section for those in Hollywood who have been named in sexual misconduct scandals.

Featuring in the video included Harvey Weinstein, Steven Seagal, James Toback, Bill Cosby, Louis C.K., Kevin Spacey, James Franco, Casey Affleck and Russell Simmons, among others.

The famous men have all faced allegations of sexual harassment, misconduct and assault, with even more women and men coming forward since the New York Times expose on film mogul Weinstein in October last year.
