Photo Diyah Pera - TM and (c) 2012 twenty Century Fox film Corporation. All legal rights reserved. lastly Hollywood has actually released a kid"s film v a confident message - Diary the a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days. The only other child film that i remember through such a positive message is "Kit Kittredge: an American Girl" in 2008. Dog days is the third movie for the #1 ideal selling series by writer Jeff Kinney. The time is summer vacation and also Greg (Zachary Gordon) is up to his old tricks and also mischief v his best friend Rowley (Robert Capron). The movie addresses teen problems such together awkward parental moments, " "sibling troubles, " "first crush, " "telling the truth" and "admitting to her mistakes." I had actually the opportunity to call Zachary Gordon and also ask him a few questions around the movie. Thank you, Zachary, for acquisition time the end of your push tour in brand-new York and also Chicago come answer the questions: 1) The film has actually a very an excellent message for pre-teens & teenagers - if you do mistakes very own up to them. Perform you feel this was an important element the the film? (Zachary Gordon): This message absolutely was critical part of the film. Mine character, Greg, continually messes up and also doesn"t take duty for his mistakes. Every his dad desires him to carry out is own up come what the does wrong. Frank, Greg"s dad, sums it increase by telling Greg what his very own father, Greg"s grandfather, said, "A male who never made a mistake never made anything." ns think that states it all. 2) Friendship is a an essential ingredient of the movie and also the cast"s interaction is so natural. Has actually the cast arisen a friendship over the three Wimpy son movies? (Zachary Gordon): several of my best friends are component of my Wimpy family. We ended up being so close and had so lot fun throughout the food of filming the three movies. Although most of united state live in different parts of the country, we try to continue to be in touch as much as feasible through FaceTime - and as for the guys, we play call of Duty top top Play terminal Live - that"s the best method to remain connected. The friendships I have made these past few years room what I will certainly remember most about filming these movies. 3) go you need to really ride the Cranium Shaker? and also if for this reason how numerous times? (Zachary Gordon): there wasn"t a ride exactly like the Cranium Shaker (from the book) in Vancouver, therefore we had actually to work out for the next finest thing. The amusement park"s many terrifying ride to be the Revelation, which spins its passenger at 62 miles per hour on either end of that is 160-foot propeller-like arm. Ns love amusement park rides, but the develop up come this ride was a bit intimidating. Us were promised iPads if us went ~ above the ride, so the made me think it need to be horrific! top top the day us filmed, Robert and I were strapped right into the ride, when the crew was setup up cameras and doing other technical stuff (for about an hour) and the anticipation to be awful. So by the moment we began, ns was an ext anxious than usual. When we rode it, ns went ~ above eight an ext times! ns loved it. Because that Robert, that doesn"t like amusement rides, once was enough. Zachary attend the one year anniversary the the brand-new Rheem Theatre and, hopefully, we will view him again soon. However for now, parents, don"t miss out on him ~ above the large screen in Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days. You will be glad you saw the film. This is a great movie to reap with the totality family.
