Mama took the holiday weekend as the top grossing movie over the 3 day span. Congratulations to Robin Cook, the casting director on the film, and to her team. Robin is a Toronto based casting director, and by using Cast It her team could upload auditions and actor reels for review by the filmmakers in Toronto and by the studio executives based in Los Angeles. Other casting offices from Vancouver, New York, and London were also linked in to the project on Cast It to upload actors and auditions as well. “Chemistry reads”, where two or more actors are filmed together, were also uploaded to the system during the casting process, to give the filmmakers a sense of how actors can/will interact on film.
