Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
In my Comic-Con delirium I think it’s more than possible I’ve missed one or two BTS pics. The fact that I have no idea tells you just how nuts this has been..
Back on the wagon for me. Today’s pic is from a childhood favorite of mine, Joe Dante’s Explorers. I remember watching this film a lot with Stand By Me because of the River Phoenix connection. I love the sense of wonder and the sense of humor at play here. This is a great kids wish-fulfillment flick. Who didn’t want to build their own spaceship growing up? Hell, I still do and am probably even less capable of making that happen than I was as a 10 year old.
So, check out the pic of Dante with young River. You can see Ethan Hawke peeking into the shot, too!
