We Are Legion: Tyrese Gibson

Actor Tyrese “Transformers” Gibson was at CinemaCon as a mentor to new filmmakers and talked about about his early exposure to the world of cinema;

Oddly enough, Gibson’s first cinema memory came not in a cinema but at home, on videotape. “I don’t remember going to the theatre,” he said at the theatre operators’ closing-night gala. But he noted his first favourites on VHS were Back to the Future (1985) and Ghostbusters (1984). “These were, somehow, the only two VHS tapes that we had in our house. So, I must have seen Back to the Future over 150 times. We knew all the words to both the movies.”
