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.

It’s been 10 years since Buffy and the Scooby Gang defeated The First, leaving Sunnydale nothing but an imploded crator. Buffy the Vampire Slayer — Joss Whedon’s cult series about the slayer and her ragtag team of friends — aired its final episode on May 20, 2003. In honor of this anniversary, here are 10 reasons why Buffy kicks ass.
10. The Killer Wardrobe
Buffy Summers (Sarah Michele Gellar) knows how to stake vamps in style. From her midriff-baring tops to her platform heels, her late ’90s and early aughts’ wardrobe always adds flair to her night job.
9. The Emotional Moments

Earlier this month at the Iron Man 3 red carpet premiere, Joss Whedon teased that The Avengers 2 could potentially feature a brother-sister act. A few days and rabid speculation later, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch were rumored to be the duo that would cause trouble for Earth's Mightiest Heroes in the 2015 summer sequel. Whedon put an end to the speculation in an interview with IGN stating, "You know, they had a rough beginning. They're interesting to me because they sort of represent the part of the world that wouldn't necessarily agree with The Avengers. So they're not there to make things easier. I'm not putting any characters in the movie that will make things easier." The quote puts to rest speculation as to who would be the Avengers'...

Robin Williams’ biggest commitment to series television since the days of “Mork & Mindy” highlights a 20th TV slate that is deep, even if not necessarily brimming with international star appeal.
Williams is teaming with another recognizable face, Sarah Michelle Gellar, in the single-cam, father-daughter workplace comedy “The Crazy Ones,” from the pen of a scribe with no small amount of global cachet himself: David E. Kelley.
Kelley’s star Stateside hasn’t shined quite as brightly of late — “Harry’s Law” (NBC) lasted only two seasons, while “Monday Mornings” (TNT) didn’t make it past one, and half-hour isn’t exactly where the “Picket Fences” and “Ally McBeal” creator made his bones, but a series starring Williams in an accessible setting is filled with worldwide potential.
A slam dunk for interest is the limited-series return of Kiefer Sutherland in “24: Live Another Day.” The condensed format »

The news was first reported by China’s m1905.com, a state-owned film site. The casting comes during recent high-profile efforts to court and increase Chinese interest in Hollywood tent-poles: Iron Man 3 was shot with footage specifically for the country, which is now the world’s second-largest film market. Meanwhile, Transformers 4 Chinese Actors Talent Search Reality Show will air this summer, a reality TV competition to cast four speaking roles in the upcoming film, which jettisons franchise star Shia Labeouf »

"Buffy the Vampire Slayer" ended 10 years ago on May 20, 2003. Yes, it's been a decade since the Slayer and the Scoobies closed the Hellmouth in Sunnydale, California.
Series star Sarah Michelle Gellar is returning to TV opposite Robin Williams with "The Crazy Ones," a new comedy on CBS this fall. At the CBS 2013 upfront red carpet last week, Gellar was surprised by how much time has passed since she last wielded a wooden stake on TV.
"Wait, wait. Hold on. Really?" she replied when The Huffington Post told her the 10th anniversary of the "Buffy" finale was upon us. "Wow. God, you just blew my mind." Williams, who accompanied Gellar on the red carpet said, "It's kind of wonderful."
"It is," Gellar said. "I'm incredibly proud of that show -- proud of everybody on it, of what we did ... You can't be prouder of that show. It still holds up in »

Joss Whedon's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." may be the latest live-action Marvel TV series to sweep the nation, but it is by no means the first. In the late '70's, families would gather around their televisions every Friday night at 9 P.M. to watch a show featuring everyone's favorite not-so-jolly green giant. Starring the likes of Bill Bixby (as Dr. David Banner) and Lou Ferrigno (as the Hulk), "The Incredible Hulk" has garnered a loyal following of fans throughout the years.
In fact, "The Incredible Hulk" was so successful that recently there has been talk of a re-imagined take on the series, helmed by the great Guillermo del Toro. However, with promotion for "Pacific Rim" now underway and huge films such as "Pinocchio" and "Justice League Dark" currently on his plate, it doesn't seem like del Toro will be getting to this passion project anytime soon. »

Pilot season was good for the major studios, which emerged from upfront week with orders for 50 new scripted comedy and drama series, up by more than 20% from last year.
Production of new scripted primetime programming for the Big Four and CW is more concentrated than ever before among six suppliers: Warner Bros. TV, 20th Century Fox TV, CBS TV Studios, ABC Studios, Universal TV and Sony Pictures TV.
Execs report a burst of last-minute wrangling this year over network efforts to force their way into co-production pacts as a condition of series greenlights. CBS and NBC in particular were said to be more heavy-handed in negotiations this time around than in the recent past.
But generally speaking, the mood was upbeat after the parade of schedule presentations. The five nets ordered 22 new comedies, up from 16 last year, and 28 drama series, up from 22.

The upcoming ABC drama could contain hints about what to expect from the comic company's big-screen blockbusters, Whedon told TV Fanatic.
"We're absolutely on top of all the movies," he said. "We never contradict [or] replicate - we will be flowing in between them, maybe occasionally we'll throw something in that foreshadows [or] echoes, but we're very much beholden to the Marvel cinematic universe."
"Everything has to push character forward, including action," Whedon affirmed. "We don't want 'spectacle' characters, we want... spectacle that addresses character. We always want the two to mix."
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will air on Tuesdays at 8/7c on ABC this fall.

Following the success of Joss Whedon’s The Avengers last year, which fast became one of the most successful movies of all time, talk very quickly turned to a sequel, and what Whedon would bring to the table for The Avengers 2.
The Avengers was such a game-changing, bar-raising movie, and it’s difficult to imagine (until we actually see it in 2015) what direction Whedon will go for The Avengers 2. I have complete faith that he’s going to outdo even himself – not just in terms of bigger blockbuster moments, but in terms of bringing us a character-driven movie that is every bit as entertaining as its predecessor (see our top ten list of who we think may appear here).
One of the things we’ve all naturally been wondering is who will be showing up for round two, amongst the faces we’ve already seen in the Marvel »

Just last month, Joss Whedon was teasing the addition of a brother-sister partnership to his super-team lineup for The Avengers 2, with tongues immediately set wagging among the online fan community. The names on everybody’s lips were those of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, with Whedon now confirming that the duo have made their way into his embryonic script. “You know, they had a rough beginning,” says Whedon of the double act, blessed with super-speed and the ability to perform chaos magic respectively. “They’re interesting...

[Update: This morning, a Ubisoft rep confirmed that indeed, the May 22, 2015 date is correct, putting their "Assassin's Creed" movie square in the big budget summer blockbuster free-for-all]
I'm trying to find some independent verification (and I have a mail out to Ubisoft to confirm), but a lot of sites are reporting that the Michael Fassbender-starring "Assassin's Creed" will be holding on to the Memorial Day 2015 release date.
It all stems from a release date posted on Box Office Mojo, which alleges that the feature based on the bestselling Ubisoft franchise will be out on May 22, 2015. That would put the still director-less "Assassin's Creed" within range of J.J. Abrams' "Episode VII" and Joss Whedon's "The Avengers 2." Now "Avengers 2" has a confirmed release date of May 1, leaving the Marvel franchise the better part of the month to earn all of the world's money before another blockbuster comes along, but would Ubisoft want to launch its first independently-developed film so close to the Disney/Marvel 800-lb gorilla? »

Although technically performing lower than expectations in its first weekend of release, "Star Trek into Darkness" won the weekend in box-office income, earning $70.6 million. This was the only new release to crack the top 10, with returning blockbusters "Iron Man 3" and "The Great Gatsby" accounting for most of the rest of the weekend's ticket sales.
"Star Trek into Darkness" had been projected to make as much as $100 million in its opening, but the J.J. Abrams-directed sequel has only earned $84 million domestically for the period from Thursday-Sunday. This does beat the number-one movie on this same weekend last year -- when Joss Whedon's "The Avengers" took in $55.6 million -- but the comparison is misleading. "Avengers" was in its third week of release by that point, having already long passed the $100 million mark.
In second place for the weekend was "Iron Man 3," which earned an additional $35.1 million in its third week. »
Last month, when Iron Man 3 hit cinemas, Joss Whedon walked the red carpet to support his Marvel colleagues and got talking about his work writing Avengers 2. He dropped a hint that a brother-sister team could feature in the sequel, with internet speculation jumping immediately to Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. Now, Whedon’s been chatting with IGN and confirmed that the duo at least appears in the current script draft.“You know, they had a rough beginning. They’re interesting to me because they sort of represent the part of the world that wouldn’t necessarily agree with the Avengers,” he says. “So they’re not there to make things easier. I’m not putting any characters in the movie that will make things easier.” Joss Whedon making life easy for his characters? Perish the thought!That’s not all the Marvel news to leak onto the web this weekend, »
Joss Whedon’s a pretty amazing writer when it comes to super-heroes. His too-brief stint on The Astonishing X-Men (and yes, I count 25 issues as too brief when the books were as fantastic as his were; try the motion-comic versions on various streaming services if you can’t get your hands on the books) almost a decade ago demonstrated showed that the guy was not only well-versed in comic book history, but he understood how to use that knowledge of characters and their respective histories and relationships to craft what is arguably the best X-Men run since Claremont/Byrne.
Then the man did the near-impossible by bringing Marvel’s The Avengers to the screen in a way that appealed to not only the geeks, but given its box office take, apparently athletes, basket cases, princesses and criminals too. Given the overwhelming number of moving parts in the script (like trying »

How much do you really get to know a college from an official tour? The pervading opinion is not a lot. But in new film Middleton, a campus visit leads two starkly different parents to get to know themselves – and each other – as they wander off from the tour group.
Shot in eastern Washington at Gonzaga University and Washington State University, Middleton had its world premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival on Friday night. The film, which takes place all in one day at the titular fictional school, stars Vera Farmiga and Andy Garcia as the parents who meet on the college tour. »
