Splitsider interviews debut director Colin Trevorrow about his sci-fi romantic dramedy Safety Not Guaranteed. He says, "I felt like there was an opportunity to make an iconic love story that hadn’t been told in that exact way before. Each character started off as archetypes and caricatures in a certain way and they slowly turned into real people over the course of the movie. I think there’s so much room for a movie like this that has the spirit of a big blockbuster in many ways but isn’t like that in every way. In all sincerity, I felt it was possible to make a movie that was both intensely romantic and darkly funny and badass all at the same time and it didn’t have to be just one of those things."
