Whedon shot the former Shakespeare adaptation in secret in the confines of his own home, and the result is a masterpiece, with a version of Shakespeare’s play unlike any seen before. I was fortunate enough to see the world premiere of Much Ado About Nothing at Tiff last year – you can read our five-star review here – and cannot recommend it enough.
We were recently treated to a brilliant UK trailer. And with its release date just around the corner, we’ve got a great new image to share of Nathan Fillion and Tom Lenk, two of Whedon’s many frequent collaborators, as Dogberry and Verges.

Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing has been on the festival circuit since September, but no other festival has made ado about the film quite like the Seattle International Film Festival, where Much Ado screened for a crowd of 3,000 on Thursday.
The Shakespeare adaptation – which Whedon shot in a 12-day stealth production at his house during what was supposed to be his post-Avengers vacation – kicked off the festival for its opening night at Seattle’s McCaw Hall in what became a record-breaking event shortly after ticket sales opened. The gala screening and party sold out in six hours on »

While the actors who portray our favorite characters get the majority of fan adoration, more and more, writers and show runners are rightfully getting their place in the spotlight. Sure, Ali Liebert brings Betty’s swagger on Bomb Girls, but writers dream up the lines that cut through us like a warm knife through maple butter. Paige McCullers would be just a footnote — a field hockey penalty — if Pretty Little Liars’ show runner hadn’t seen her potential and gone with her gut. So here’s to the writers who inspire us, and the women and men who run the show. (Thank you to all of you who tweeted me your favorites.)

Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing is all but guaranteed to be my favourite film of the year. I was lucky enough to be at its world premiere at Tiff last year – you can read our five-star review here – and instantly fell in love with it.
The first trailer debuted last month, giving the world a brilliant first look at Whedon’s upcoming adaptation. And now Kaleidoscope have released the new UK trailer, giving us a terrific new look at the highly anticipated drama/comedy.
Leonato (Clark Gregg), the governor of Messina, is visited by his friend Don Pedro (Reed Diamond), who is returning from a victorious campaign against his rebellious brother Don John (Sean Maher). Accompanying Don Pedro are two of his officers: Benedick (Alexis Denisof) and Claudio (Fran Kranz). While in Messina, Claudio falls for Leonato’s daughter Hero (Jillian Morgese), and Benedick verbally spars with Beatrice »

It’s a little different in tone from the international promo (see here), which was more screwball-y (a word coined by The Bard himself). This new trailer amps up the tragic side of Willy’s classic play and demonstartes wonderfully how much of an ensemble piece Much Ado really is. We cannot wait for this merry war to begin.
For further details on this glorious affair, click here.
Much Ado About Nothing is directed by Joss Whedon and stars Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, Nathan Fillion and Clark Gregg among many others. It will be released in the Us June 7th and in the UK June 14th. 2013. Prepare to fall horribly in love.

Joss Whedon's feature film adaptation of William Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing has been getting pretty solid reviews. I haven't seen it for myself yet, but I plan on checking it out as soon as I get the chance!
Here's a new UK trailer for the indie movie that been released. Whedon shot the film in less than two weeks while taking a break from making The Avengers.
The movie also has a great cast that includes Clark Gregg (Avengers), Fran Kranz, and Amy Acker (The Cabin in the Woods), along with Nathan Fillion, Alexis Denisof, Jillian Morgese, Sean Maher, and Reed Diamond. Here's the synopsis...
Leonato, the governor of Messina, is visited by his friend Don Pedro who is returning from a victorious campaign against his rebellious brother Don John. Accompanying Don Pedro are two of his officers: Benedick and Claudio. While in Messina, Claudio falls for Leonato’s daughter Hero, »

Much Ado About Nothing just got another trailer, this one made for the U.K. The newest peek at Joss Whedon’s take on the beloved Shakespeare comedy spotlights the Bard’s wittiest couple, Benedick and Beatrice – much like the first trailer – though here there’s less merry war and more mountains of affection.
To the tune of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, Beatrice (Amy Acker) and Benedick (Alexis Denisof) are shown falling for each other – and literally falling down the stairs of Whedon’s house (where the film was made during a 12-day shoot). The trailer gives us more glimpses »

While The Avengers 2 is still very much in the pre-production stage and we haven’t heard much movement recently on the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series, everyone will have their Joss Whedon fix very soon. The UK trailer for his new movie, an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, was just released, showing a bit more of the film than the first trailer. Much Ado tells the story of two stubborn individuals, Beatrice and Benedick, and their haphazard journey to finding love with each other that involves a ridiculous amount of deception and wit. This one gives glimpses into the interwoven drama with jabs of comedy Whedon is more known for, and I for one am very excited to see him take on an updated but understated version of this classic. I like that he’s kept the original text, but is »

Joss Whedon's Much Ado About Nothing will serve as the opening night film at the Seattle Film Festival and I'm actually planning on seeing it tomorrow as part of the press launch for the fest. Shot in black-and-white, largely in Whedon's home, the film played the Toronto Film Festival last year to plenty of acclaim and will hit theaters on June 7. Whedon and stars including Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, Clark Gregg and Nathan Fillion turn Shakespeare's classic comedy on its head and, at this point, I'm slightly interested to see how it turns out. Check out a new international trailer for the film below along with the official poster. »

Chris Pratt was the first one to come on board, taking the lead of the Guardians as Star-Lord / Peter Quill.
Gunn himself came clean to us about the rumours surrounding the film recently at the UK premiere for Marvel and Shane Black’s Iron Man 3. And now we’ve got two more pieces of casting news to add to the list, with THR reporting that Ophelia Lovibond has signed on for a supporting role in the blockbuster. And alongside that, The Wrap reports that Lee Pace is in final talks for the role of the villain.
Both Lovibond and Pace’s roles »

A new trailer for Much Ado About Nothing has been released.
Released exclusively through Digital Spy, the trailer features several more actors who have a history with Whedon, including Nathan Fillion as buffoonish police chief Dogberry, Sean Maher as the villainous Don John and Clark Gregg as Leonato.
The idea for the adaptation came out of Whedon's regular brunch ritual, wherein he would invite regular collaborators - including Denisof, Acker and Fillion - over to his house for recitals of Shakespeare plays.
The film was shot in 12 days at locations in and around Whedon's Santa Monica home.
Much Ado About Nothing will be released on June 14 in the UK. »
Much Ado About Nothing, 2012.
Directed by Joss Whedon.
A modern retelling of Shakespeare's classic comedy about two pairs of lovers with different takes on romance and a way with words.
You probably know the story by now. Post-Avengers shoot and pre-Avengers edit, Joss Whedon had some two weeks spare. Ignoring the burden of the expectation-laden behemoth on his hands, Whedon decided to use that time to shoot a version of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. With his friends, at his house, over 12 days. As anyone would.
That the film was made in such a casual manner is its key strength. This is contemporary Shakespeare done right, not overly-reverential and with a sense of something most adaptations don’t possess: fun. Whedon outdoes the likes of Baz Luhrmann »

The past year has been quite a celebratory one for Joss Whedon, and The Weekly Whedon has celebrated right along with him. Our first column was posted in May of 2012, just after "The Avengers" had its Us premiere. Now, our final post follows Joss & Co.'s triumph at the MTV Movie Awards.
Since last spring we’ve spoken with many of the Whedonverse’s finest actors (Tom Lenk, Sean Maher, Alexis Denisof, Julie Benz, James Marsters, Adam Baldwin) and writer/producers (Tim Minear, Jane Espenson, Marti Noxon, Maurissa Tancharoen Whedon, Jose Molina). We’ve followed Joss to San Diego Comic-Con to commemorate the 10th anniversary of "Firefly," and to Toronto for the world premiere of "Much Ado About Nothing." We’ve discussed "S.H.I.E.L.D." and "Dr. Horrible" and "Buffy," and we've "toured" Serenity with its designer, Carey Meyer.

Two film adaptations, both alike in writer in the world of cinema where we lay our scene, from silent movies to colourful modernised versions, where poor performances make Shakespeare’s words unclean. From forth the respected pen of Julian Fellowes and Joss Whedon, a pair of Shakespeare adaptations hit the screen.
It’s often cited as the greatest love story ever told; a statement that completely ignores the chemistry between Heather Graham and Matt Le Blanc in Lost I Space. But we have a new version of Romeo And Juliet on its way, from the writer of Downton Abbey. This film takes the story back to its roots and probably won’t involve guns or a bombastic soundtrack. The trailer’s a bit spoiler filled, so I don’t see why anyone would want to watch this in the cinema. They die…apparently. It also looks a bit dreary and nothing new. »

The anticipation surrounding Joss Whedon’s upcoming Much Ado About Nothing is incredibly well deserved. The director has committed to film the best adaptation of Shakespeare’s work to date, and its June release date can’t come fast enough.
I was fortunate enough to be at its world premiere at Tiff last September – you can read our five-star review here – and have been eagerly awaiting its theatrical release ever since.
The brilliant first trailer finally arrived last month. And with its release less than two months away, EW have debuted the new Us poster, following on from the first official poster we saw late last year.
Leonato (Clark Gregg), the governor of Messina, is visited by his friend Don Pedro (Reed Diamond), who is returning from a victorious campaign against his rebellious brother Don John (Sean Maher). Accompanying Don Pedro are two of his officers: Benedick (Alexis Denisof) and »

The first poster for director Joss Whedon's Much Ado About Nothing is essentially a higher-quality version of the teaser poster from October 2011, when the project was first announced. Fran Kranz is seen on this one-sheet as Claudio in this adaptation of William Shakespeare's famous play. Check out the poster, then read on for more details regarding this new comedy from star Alexis Denisof.
When asked about the new poster, Alexis Denisof said he thinks this image captures the spirit of the film.
"I love this poster. I think the image really captures the spirit of this movie. It's amusing and unique and eye-catching. I think it was a good image to choose. This image of Fran [Kranz] in the pool with the snorkel mask and a martini glass just sums up the quirky, fun easiness this movie has."
The actor also breaks down the scene portrayed in this one-sheet, »
