    Characters is the Grammy-nominated twenty-first studio album by American singer-songwriter Stevie Wonder, released by Motown Records on November 6, 1987 in North America. Although highly anticipated like its predecessor, In Square Circle upon its release, the album received mixed reviews from critics, and debuted at number 17 on the US Billboard 200, becoming his first album since Music of My Mind not to reach the top ten of the charts. In the UK, the album debuted at number thirty-three on the UK Albums Chart, being his lowest charting album in comparison to his previous efforts. It debuted at number one on the U.S. Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart for seven weeks, and spawned six singles including "Get It", "Skeletons" and the ballad "You Will Know" that had attained Billboard R&B chart success.

  2. Photographer Daniel Kariko:

    They kind of look like characters you might meet in the cantina scene in 'Star Wars'.

  3. Chris Pratt:

    I’m telling you this, I’m so excited for people to see this film. It’s 10 years in the making. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is coming up on its 10 year anniversary as a stand alone studio. They made 18 movies. Everyone of them has opened number one. You have all of these interlocking intertwining storylines from characters from each of those 18 movies coming together in one giant unprecedented spectactical. it’s truly going to be, I think, the biggest movie of all time and from what I hear from people who have seen it, it’s so good. So, expect to get, I don’t know, blown away. Expect to not be able to even see it if you don’t have your tickets yet.

  4. Mark Eiglarsh:

    I think this is one of those rare cases where he might have to take the witness stand. He's an actor, so he has an advantage over almost anyone who is going to take the witness stand. He knows how to portray characters, so he'd be playing the role potentially of a person who has been victimized by the prosecution repeatedly, and someone who has suffered a vicious attack, if he wasn't a good actor, I'd say it might be too risky, but he's an excellent actor. That's what he does for a living.

  5. Director Rian Johnson:

    The first film was this incredible explosion of adventure and excitement that sets up these characters and then just out of necessity it's very natural that in the second film that we start zooming in on the characters.
