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 »

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 »

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. »

This week’s Good Wife didn’t provide us with enough lady love, but it did include Alicia getting some of her moral compass back, as well as some interesting speculation on Kalinda’s future. It begins with an Alicia family reunion at a funeral for someone none of them really knew, which I enjoy. Not because of the funeral part, but because Alicia and Momma Channing and Gay Brother Owen all together is one of my favorite things. They’re more natural in a lovingly dysfunctional way than Alicia’s stilted relationship with her own kids could ever be.
Thanks for dragging me to this funeral of a stranger, Mom. (Anytime!)
Turns out Momma Channing has actually corralled Alicia there to meet the deceased’s wife and co-workers, who are all coders at some tech company that is screwing them over real hard. »
It only happens once a year officially, but any devoted pothead will tell you that 420 happens at least once a day. For the uninitiated, 420 is a term used primarily in North America that refers to the consumption of cannabis and, by extension, a way to identify oneself with cannabis subculture.
Man, that sounded kinda smart, no? Anyway, observances based on the number 420 include smoking pot around the time 4:20 p.m. (and/or 4:20 a.m.) as well as on today's date, April 20th (4/20). In celebration of the wacky stoners who have died (or sometimes lived) in some of our favorite horror flicks, we present to you our Top 5. There would have been 10, but our short-term memory sucks lately.

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 »
