Updated: What If US trailer
Like it was announced on Twitter and Facebook (if you missed Daniel's message see it below) yesterday: the new US trailer for What If has just been released via Yahoo! Movies and is also posted below. Enjoy! Yahoo had a chat with Daniel too and check the official (Tumblr) website:

The message from yesterday:

Update: A Message from Daniel and Zoe Kazan to fans of The Woman in Black

The trailer:


What If raises the age-old question of whether or not men and women can just be friends. What have you learned about that from your own life?
Daniel Radcliffe: I’ve got loads of female friends, but I think it’s a different question when sexual or romantic attractions come into play. Can two people who are romantically attracted to each other just be friends? Possibly not, because I think in the end, you’re always going to end up having the conversation. It may be that you have the conversation where you confess your undying love for her and then you work it out from there. Or it may be that you end up getting together, or it may be that you end up never speaking again.
At what point in filming did you realize you and Zoe had chemistry together?
 I think it was probably the first scene in the diner, when we were just throwing stuff out there and trying to make each other laugh. I made her laugh a couple of times, and I always think that’s a good sign. It was obvious from then that we were going to be able to work well together and play off each other well.
There’s also a skinny-dipping scene at one point. Were you at all intimated by that?
 We got lucky in that the two nights on either side of [the shoot] had been freezing and on that one night, a warm front swept in. It wasn’t boiling hot, but it was definitely more comfortable than I expected it to be. For a scene in Kill Your Darlings earlier in the year, I actually went into the Hudson River naked. The scene ended up being cut. Twice that year, I had gotten into large bodies of water naked and if I have to do one again, I promise you it will be Lake Ontario. I don’t have a problem with [nudity] and so when it comes up in scripts, I’m not going to be the actor who turns around and says, “Oh, actually can I be wearing pants in that scene?”
What’s it like to work with Adam Driver?
He’s fantastic. I think a lot of the time people make the mistake of equating the character somebody’s most famous for with what [the actor’s] personality must be like. I think a lot of people expect he’s going to be quite loud and brash. But he’s very quiet. He’s a really measured and intelligent guy, and a ferociously good improviser.
Are you excited about the new Harry Potter spin-off?
 Yes, I am. I’m now in that fortunate position of just being a fan like everyone else. [I’m] intrigued to see what they’re doing with these films.

Would you be willing to do a cameo?
 We’re dealing in total hypotheticals, because they haven’t asked. But “No” would be the answer. It’s really not an issue with those [new] films, because they’re set 100 years in the past. It’s the same world, but a totally different set of characters.
Do you think the Potter films pigeonholed you in any way?
My prior associations with Potter have certainly not held back any of the films I’ve done since. So I’m hopeful that the trend continues — that people are starting to see me as an actor rather than just Harry. But I’ve always said: All I can do is what I’m doing, which is varied and interesting work. The rest is up to everyone else.

NYC: The official guide interview

NYC: The official guide interview
NYC: The official Guide's interview with Daniel about New York where he is starring in The Cripple of Inishmaan.

What do you look forward to doing in New York each time you come back? Daniel Radcliffe: The food here is wonderful—not that I'm particularly sophisticated by any stretch of the imagination. I live in the West Village, and I go to Ditch Plains all the time. I recently got really excited because I realized it was owned by Marc Murphy, one of the judges on Chopped. Commerce is also fantastic, and my friend just introduced me to The Grey Dog. I also love this place called Fat Cat because I enjoy playing Ping-Pong. The whole cast of the show and I went there not long ago, and it was awesome. The place I always used to go for dinner after shows—which I haven't actually been to this time yet—is Angus McIndoe [now called Angus' Café Bistro]. It's a very welcoming place. The guy who runs it is Scottish, so it's a little bit of Britain away from Britain.
The rest of the actors in your cast are all Irish. Are you showing them around New York?
I've shown them a few spots, and we'll all go out to dinner together sometimes, but they don't need me to show them how to have a good time. Pat Shortt, who plays JohnnyPateenMike, is a fantastic musician with a real passion for jazz, so he's been going to the Village Vanguard and Birdland. But we're all having a pretty fantastic time. That's one of the reasons I was so excited to do the show—I wanted to be able to come to New York again.
What about New York is more enjoyable to you than London?
DR: I don't know if it's because in London we do sort of have gray weather the whole year round, but there is a genuine positivity to New York. London is quite a cynical city in some ways—it doesn't have quite the same energy about it that New York does. London is always going to be my home—it's where I was born and where I'm from—but I definitely enjoy spending time here.
What's one of your favorite things to do in New York?
Running. Now I'll run up the West Side Highway, but when I was doing Equus, I was living on the Upper West Side and I would go to Central Park. I think that's one of the more fun experiences you can have, particularly if you're competitive like me, because there are always going to be enough people there to have a race—even if they don't know they're in a race. You can find other people to focus on and then run to.
What is something new that you've discovered in New York this time around?
DR: I went rock climbing at a place called Brooklyn Boulders. I had to go there to film something and ended up being there for quite a few hours. I love all that kind of outdoorsy, rock-climbing-type stuff. There's a climbing wall, but they've also got a section for free climbing with crash mats on it and overhangs. It's really cool.
In the show your disabled stance and movements are very physical and involved. Are you exhausted afterward?
DR: No, not particularly. Rehearsing a show is a phenomenal routine for embedding something into your muscle memory. It's sort of the same way you learn a dance. The first time I did “Brotherhood of Man” in rehearsal [for How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying], I was knackered. But by the time you get to the performances, you've done it for so long that it's in your body. It's something you don't have to struggle for anymore. The same goes for the physicality of this show. I've worked with myself a lot, and it's become second nature for me to stand like that in the show. It's so comfortable that there are moments where I sort of have a panic on stage and think that I might just have let the physicality drop.
You've performed this play in both London and New York. Have you noticed differences in the audiences' reactions?
DR: I think the general difference between them is that you get the same kind of laughs with London audiences, but you won't really get the gasps and the “oohs” and “aahs” and all the other noises you guys make over here, which are awesome. There was a woman in the audience the other day who would be like “ugh!” every time Sarah Greene's character, Helen, says something despicable to me. She was getting really annoyed. I love that. And then people sort of clap at the end here where there's this kind of life-affirming moment and a kiss. That wouldn't happen in London. British audiences are more reserved.
What plans do you have for summer in the City? Are you going to go out to the Hamptons? DR: I don't have time to go to the Hamptons! I will just be going to parks and chilling out with friends there. There's nothing more enjoyable than sitting with friends and reading and talking rubbish on a brilliant, sunny New York day.

Updated: Google+: Sandy Binion jewellery
There is a new Google+ post on Daniel's official page about Sandy Binion (his dresser).

Update: 7th October 2015. Sandy Binion did post two photos online on her Facebook page (Sandy Binion Jewelry), regarding a pendant for Erin.
When your girlfriend is from Michigan nothing could more fitting than a Fordite Pendant! Dan was so excited to learn about Fordite and how it was the scrap paint that had been cleaned out of the old Detroit car manufacturing plants. He picked the "stone" and helped design the pendant for Erin.

Via Google+:
"I have known Sandy Binion since Equus here in NY and she's dressed me all through How To Succeed and is doing so now for The Cripple of Inishmaan. Here's something way more interesting about her though: she smashes rocks and transforms them into amazing, original,  very cool jewellery! If you live in the NY area and want to see some why don't you join her at her Open Studio Event at The Radiator Arts Gallery! " - Dan
