Netflix's newest mysterious, thrilling drama film Rebecca just arrived on the streaming platform this week in time for spooky season, and while it isn't quite the same as the iconic, award-winning 1940 Hitchcock film of the same name, stars Lily James and Armie Hammer bring their own spin to the beloved title. 

"My main source of inspiration and where I always went back to was the book," Lily told PRIDE about how she prepped for the role of Mrs. de Winter, and how she brought something different and new to the character. "I did watch the Hitchcock, but a long way before because I knew I was doing this film for a long time. I watched the film with enough space between to feel like it wasn't going to be too present in my memory. I also actually used Sylvia Plath, I read a lot of her poetry, I found that  inspiration for my character and for some of the themes in the book about obsession, and jealousy, and twisted love and trauma, and all those sorts of things that rear their ugly heads in this movie."

"It was just a lot of understanding the historical context, understanding the time, understanding the kind of trauma that this guy went through and breaking down how he dealt with it, and how he carried it, and, you know, what he has and hasn't processed," Armie said about playing Mrs. de Winter's husband Max. "Just trying to get into the psychology of a kind of guy who grew up like that. Trying to understand a character from that angle."

While Rebecca is still fresh in the minds of many film fans, the burning question we've had for Armie has to do with another one of his more well-known projects: is Armie ready to reunite with Timothée Chalamet and do more king shit in the Call Me by Your Name sequel???

"Yeah, that 'king shit' thing was hyperbolic," Armie said about his now infamous Instagram thirst comment on one of his CMBYN co-star's recent Insta posts. "It was like...it was more just like making fun of how everyone talks on the internet now."

And speaking on the status of the highly-anticipated, Oscar-winning 2017 film, he continued, saying "I hope it all happens."

"I haven't seen the script yet," Armie revealed. "But, you know, we'll see. Hopefully, we all get to do it. It'd be great if we could."

Rebecca is now streaming on Netflix
