The 56-year-old actor called the film a "fascinating combination" of horror and family drama that centers around a family fighting off an extraterrestrial being after a meteorite crashed on their farm.

"I’m a big admirer of H.P. Lovecraft, and I always loved Richard Stanley’s movies. I was happy we had a chance to work together. He hasn’t made a movie in 20 years,” Nicolas said.

The Oscar winner also relished being able to work with "exciting directors" and other great actors on "Color Out of Space," and told Extra that he is "having a great time" at the premiere.

With the Oscar nominations announced recently, Nicolas admitted that it's been a "really competitive year." Singling out the film "Marriage Story," featuring Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver as a couple wading through a divorce, Nicolas added:

“I think that’s a very important movie. I think anyone who’s even considering divorce — and the families — it should be required viewing. Having been through it, family law is absolutely the worst.”

Nicolas is intimately familiar with divorce, having been through it four times. The most recent of which took place last year.

In January 2019, Nicolas married the makeup artist Erika Koike in Las Vegas after a year of dating, but only two months later, the actor filed for an annulment.

According to court documents obtained by PEOPLE, a Nevada judge granted Nicolas' request for divorce on March 28, after he claimed that both him and Erika were intoxicated when they exchanged "I do's."

The documents also stated that Erika didn't "disclose the full nature and extent of her relationship with another person," and Nicolas also cited her "criminal history" as another reason for seeking an annulment.
