Trailer Clip - "Amsterdam"ASSOCIATED PRESSNew York, 18 September 20222. SOUNDBITE (English) Christian Bale,actor and producer - on the movie's positive message:"One of the I think crucial messages of the film is not to use their tactics of anger and hatred, you know, that you will lose yourself and you'll destroy your own life if you do that. You know, we have these central characters who should, you would expect them to be broken people and embrace these negative emotions, but they refuse to. They're true fighters and they're true patriots because they really do love their fellow man. And they use optimism as a weapon. They use love as a weapon. You know, they insist on enjoying their life against all the odds. And they fight these powers with those weapons, with those healthy and positive weapons. And that's what we loved about these characters."DISNEY3. Trailer Clip - "Amsterdam"ASSOCIATED PRESSNew York, 18 September 20224. SOUNDBITE (English) Margot Robbie, actor - on sharing the same love for art with her character:"I made a lot of weird art during COVID lockdown to the point where I think I started scaring my husband. I was, yeah, I got real deep into it (laughs) yeah, yeah, don't ever look at my Internet search history. It's like the things I was ordering online were like, so weird. Anyways, I had a lot of fun with that and. I had a lot. Yeah, I loved Valerie. I loved the process. I loved having that much time with her. And yes, she was. I wanted her to be defiant in every single way, in every single situation. I think that it could be equally true for a woman right now and a woman, you know, a thousand years ago."DISNEY5.

SOUNDBITE (English) Robert De Niro, actor - on Smedley Butler:"I never knew about Smedley Butler and I saw this on this material on him.

He was he wrote a book called "War is a Racket." He was a brilliant and loved hero, hero, heroic character, if you will, a general in the military. And so it was surprising.
