Danny Pudi: Growing up as a mixed-race kid, you’re always hoping that there’s something weirder than you out there, so that people will be nicer to you. And so, yes, I do.

Louis Leterrier: Of course! I saw an image of a solar flare that was 200,000 times the size of Earth. We’re lucky to be alive. We need aliens to give us technology—the universe is a death trap!

Nat Wolff: I’m pretty sure my math teacher is an alien. He’s a great guy, but when you meet him, he screams extraterrestrial.

RiFF RAFF: There’s got to be something out there. We don’t understand the galaxy or dimensions. What’s past Pluto? It’s not like you hit a wall after that.
