Whedonites rejoice: Joss Whedon's newest film is available on Vimeo. The online video platform has picked up the distribution rights for In Your Eyes, a film written by Whedon, directed by Brin Hill, and recently debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival. In Your Eyes follows the story of a man and woman who can communicate telepathically with each other despite having never met. The trailer offers viewers the first three minutes of the film, which establishes the paranormal connection between the two leads. The film screened at Tribeca on April 20th, and it became available on Vimeo On Demand immediately after its debut. It can be rented as a digital download for $5 a pop. Vimeo has recently pledged to invest $10 million in its On Demand library. Less than a week before debuting In Your Eyes, Vimeo announced the launch of a pair of documentaries, including one from James Franco. »

As a guy who has covered features my whole career, I find it distressing that the only time feature folks do risky things seems to be when they are making TV projects. Because theaters and studios can’t figure it out, films are frozen in an arcane system where you wait six months for a DVD and those who don’t want to wait, or see it in a theater, have no choice but to steal it. When they work in TV, these writer/directors play in a sandbox that gives viewers the ability to see that work, whenever and wherever they want to. Joss Whedon premiered a Brin Hill-directed micro-budget relationship film In Your Eyes at Tribeca, and announced right after that he’s making it available on Vimeo for five bucks. Obviously, Whedon makes a fortune on Marvel’s The Avengers movies, but he is onto something here, »

Hey, everyone, what are you doing this morning? Stop doing it right now, because there's a new Joss Whedon movie you could be watching instead. Sorry, other plans. You'll just have to wait. "In Your Eyes," which the "Marvel's The Avengers" director/writer co-wrote and executive produced, had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City Sunday (April 20) night. The usual bevy of stars, including Zoe Kazan (who stars in the ...

Joss Whedon fans got a nice surprise last night when Whedon revealed that April 20 wasn’t just the day his latest film, In Your Eyes, premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival: It’s also the day anyone with an internet connection could rent the film for $5.
Whedon wasn’t able to attend the New York screening, but he taped a video message to play after the movie that revealed April 20 was also In Your Eyes’s worldwide release date. “This is exciting for us because it means we get to explore yet another new form of distribution, and we get $5,” Whedon explained. »

With his talons firmly entrenched in the Marvel franchise, Joss Whedon's influence on contemporary popular culture has arguably never been higher. Still, even as he prepares a second "Avengers" movie for the masses, Whedon remains known not for the grand scale of its productions but the way people talk and act within them. No matter how many hundreds of effects it took to simulate the destruction of Manhattan in "The Avengers," the movie worked to a large degree because of Whedon's persistently funny and vibrant screenplay. With this talent in place, it's no wonder that Whedon founded Bellwether Pictures, a micro budget studio committed to small scale productions — the first of which, a black-and-white adaptation of "Much Ado About Nothing" shot in the director's home post-"Avengers," showed exactly how far outside the contemporary Hollywood tradition his interest lie. The second Bellwether production, "In Your Eyes," was written by »

Before he became one of the more powerful filmmakers in Hollywood, Joss Whedon was known for his quips. These were rattled off and recited by a series of characters who all spoke in the same easily identifiable, highly stylized, pop culture-infused geek language of Whedon himself. (Whedon’s best collaborators, like Drew Goddard and Marti Noxon, knew how to approximate this code better than others.) But there was always another side of Whedon, exhibited in the best episodes of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and its cruelly underrated spin-off “Angel,” one that was incredibly sensitive and sincere. It’s this Whedon, the one more interested in pulling at your heartstrings than tickling your funny bone that is on display in “In Your Eyes,” a new supernatural romance that, if you can get past the occasional sappiness, is a pretty moving, offbeat little love story.The movie begins with a young boy, »

New York (AP) — Joss Whedon is releasing a film he wrote as a $5 digital download, bypassing the normal channels of independent film distribution. In a video announcement Sunday following the premiere of the supernatural romance "In Your Eyes" at the Tribeca Film Festival, Whedon says the film will immediately be released online via Vimeo On Demand and InYourEyesMovie.com. The film stars Zoe Kazan and Michael Stahl-David. Whedon penned and produced it. The release will be the second film release for Whedon's "micro studio" Bellwether Productions, following last year's adaptation of Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing." Whedon has experimented previously with digital releases. His 2008 miniseries "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog" was among the first high-profile Web series. Whedon currently is working on the "Avengers" sequel "Age of Ultron," to be released next year. Copyright © 2014 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. »

Joss Whedon will rent “In Your Eyes,” a movie he wrote and executive produced, directly from the movie's website, joining the growing list of filmmakers who have experimented with self-distribution. Whedon announced these plans in a video message displayed after the premiere of the movie Sunday night at the Tribeca Film Festival. He was not able to attend since he is in production on the sequel to “The Avengers.” In the message, Whedon said that the Tribeca premiere was “not just the world premiere, but also its international release date.” Brin Hill directed “In Your Eyes,” which stars Zoe Kazan and Michael. »

"I gotta hustle," said Johansson about her acting career. "I’m a twenty-eight-year-old woman in the movie business."
"Pretty soon the roles you’re offered all become mothers.
'Then they just sort of stop. I have to hedge against that with work — theater, producing... this thing with 'Esquire'..."
March 2009, Johansson first signed on to play Marvel Comics' Russian spy 'Natasha Romanoff' aka the 'Black Widow' in the feature "Iron Man 2", as an undercover spy for 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' posing as an assistant to 'Tony Stark' (Robert Downey Jr.) aka 'Iron Man'.
She was cast only after a scheduling conflict forced actress Emily Blunt to drop out of the part.

The Avengers director Joss Whedon wrote and produced a new film called In Your Eyes, and today we have a clip to share from the supernatural thriller. The clip is the opening scene from the film, and it completely hooked me! Whedon is such a great storyteller, I loved what I saw here and I'm excited to see more.
The film stars Zoe Kazan (Ruby Sparks) and Michael Stahl-David (Cloverfield) and the story "takes place in the winter and tells the story of Rebecca, a soft-spoken doctor’s wife living on the East Coast, and Dylan, an ex-con struggling to make a fresh start in New Mexico, who somehow find themselves inexplicably and metaphysically connected."

Strange occurrences are a matter of course in Joss Whedon's universe.
In Whedon's latest movie, "In Your Eyes," which he wrote and executive produced, two strangers on opposite coasts share a metaphysical, inexplicable connection. The first three minutes of the movie, directed by Brin Hill, has been released ahead of its premiere this weekend at the Tribeca Film Festival.
In the opening scene, a girl named Rebecca is sledding, while a boy named Dylan is attending school. As Rebecca races down the hill, suddenly Dylan can see through her eyes. And when Rebecca crashes into a tree, Dylan experiences it, too.

Joss Whedon was a busy man with The Avengers. But in between the writing and the shooting and the wrangling of a real, live Hulk (I’m assuming that was the real Hulk, right?), he also shot Much Ado About Nothing on his days off. Apparently Much Ado wasn’t enough, because Whedon actually had a third project in the works at the same time. In the early months of 2012, Whedon’s screenplay for In Your Eyes was being shot in New Hampshire. Not by Whedon, mind you, but by Brin Hill – and before you say, “Who?” Hill is known mostly for writing the competitive b-boy flick Battle of the Year. Somehow, Whedon found a way to oversee the production anyway, even if it was just through a tenuous psychic connection. Which, conveniently enough, is the very same plot device at the center of In Your Eyes. Starring Zoe Kazan (Ruby Sparks) and Michael Stahl-David (the lead »
