Blog: Why How I Met Your Mother is a tribute to Bollywood

24 January 2015 1:11 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

As someone who is a huge admirer of Bollywood cinema, I also happen to be a big fan of Us sitcoms. I have seen many great shows from beginning to end that include Friends, Frasier, Everybody Loves Raymond and of course How I Met Your Mother. Although the classic TV show ended last year, I only recently finished watching the final season where the male lead Ted Mosby (played by Josh Radnor) ultimately ends up with the love of his life Robin Scherbatsky (played bv Cobie Smulders). As someone who happens to be a fan of both Bollywood and Us sitcoms, I cannot help but notice that How I Met Your Mother is ultimately a tribute to all the love stories that are told in the world of Bollywood. It is something which I have rarely seen in a Us television show before, but How I Met Your Mother has »

'Avengers 2' to Introduce a New 'Guardians' Character?

23 January 2015 7:40 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier today, Schmoes Know's sources revealed that Andy Serkis' character in Avengers: Age of Ultron is Ulysses Klaw, which had been rumored ever since the first trailer surfaced. The site also teased that they had another scoop dropping today, which, as it turns out, reveals that a female character from the Marvel comics will make an appearance in this Phase Two sequel. Be warned, there may be potential Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

You may recall that, back in July, Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon revealed that there are four main female characters in the sequel. We already know about Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), but fans were wondering about the identity of the fourth female character. According to Schmoes Know, that character is Mantis.

Marvel is reportedly trying to find a way to link their cosmic universe, »

Andy Serkis’ Avengers: Age of Ultron character details revealed?

23 January 2015 3:33 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Since the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer arrived a few months ago, there’s been a lot of speculation that Andy Serkis will be playing the Black Panther villain, Ulysses Klaw. This has now seemingly been confirmed, with Schmoes Know reporting that Serkis will indeed portray Klaw, as well as offering up some details about the character.

According to the site, the Marvel Cinematic Universe version is an amalgamation of Ulysses Klaw and his father Fritz Klae. In the comics Klae was an antagonist for the Howling Comandos in World War II, as well as being allies with Baron Von Strucker who appears in Age of Ultron, played by Thomas Kretschmann. The source claims “Fritz could possibly have a small appearance in the film or a passing reference, but most of his attributes will be given to Serkis’ Klaw.”

Paul Bettany teases Avengers: Age of Ultron’s “enormous” scale

23 January 2015 2:26 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Paul Bettany, who has played Tony Stark’s A.I. butler J.A.R.V.I.S. multiple times in the Marvel cinematic universe, will be showing up in the flesh for Avengers: Age of Ultron, as popular character and android The Vision. We still know very little about his role, and have yet to see him in any of the footage that’s been released, but judging by these new comments, Bettany will be involved in some pretty big action scenes.

Bettany spoke with RadioTimes.com, and teased Age of Ultron‘s massive scale:

“I’ve never been on a bigger set on my entire life than in The Avengers {Age of Ultron]. One [part] seemed to be the corner of a town, with helicopter cameras, and drone cameras flying about. I just haven’t seen anything that big, so it was like being a kid on a film set again. »

23 January 2015 1:02 PM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

It’s an embarrassment of riches for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (McU), dear readers. Hot on the heels of last week’s examination of the Ant-Man teaser trailer, this week’s Trailer Trashin’ looks at what will probably be the biggest movie of summer 2015, Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Premise: With S.H.I.E.L.D. destroyed and the Avengers needing a hiatus from stopping threats, Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) attempts to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program with Ultron (James Spader), a self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence. But the plan backfires when Ultron decides that humans are the real enemy and sets out to eradicate them from the Earth, and it is up to Iron Man, Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Bruce Banner/The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and Clint Barton/Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), along with support from Nick Fury »

'Avengers 2': Andy Serkis Character Details Revealed?

23 January 2015 12:50 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When the teaser trailer debuted in October for Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron, fans got their first look at Andy Serkis' mystery character. After seeing that brief shot, many fans had a hunch about who the actor was really playing. Then the second trailer gave us an even better look at the actor in costume. Now Schmoes Know's sources confirm that the actor is playing Ulysses Klaw. Please note: This hasn't been officially confirmed by Marvel yet.

The site's sources reveal that this version of Klaw is actually an "amalgamation" of both Klaw and his father from the comic books, Fritz Klaue, who has been connected to the villainous Baron Von Strucker, played by Thomas Kretschmann, and the Howling Commandos, which will also be referenced in the sequel. Here's what the unidentified source had to say, revealing that Klaw's father may also pop up in The Avengers 2: »

The End of the Tour may have a distribution deal with A24

23 January 2015 9:04 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having only just starting in the Us, it seems that some of the line-up at this year’s Sundance Film Festival is too good to turn down.

In what would be the fourth sale already before the festival gets into full swing, distributors A24 are considering picking up the rights to The End of the Tour, the new drama from James Ponsoldt (The Spectacular Now) starring Jason Segal (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and Jesse Eisenberg (The Double).

Receiving its premiere tonight at the festival, the film is loose adaptation of David Lipsky’s Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself: A Road Trip with David Foster Wallace, in which the Rolling Stone reporter (played by Eisenberg) spent five days on the road with the late writer David Foster Wallace (Segel) conducting interviews for the book, which was released a year and a half after Wallace’s death.

Paul Bettany: 'Avengers 2' Is Biggest Marvel Movie Ever

23 January 2015 7:40 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Paul Bettany has provided his voice as J.A.R.V.I.S., Tony Stark's indelible A.I., in four movies, including Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Iron Man 3 and Marvel's The Avengers. But in Avengers: Age of Ultron, he will finally appear in the flesh as Vision, and it was the first time he actually got to interact with the ensemble cast on set. Speaking with Radio Times, the actor was able to provide a bird's eye view into the production, and he was beyond impressed with what he saw. He even claims that its the most ambitious project Marvel has attempted yet:

"I've never been on a bigger set on my entire life than in The Avengers (Age of Ultron). One [part] seemed to be the corner of a town, with helicopter cameras, and drone cameras flying about. I just haven't seen anything that big, so it was »

Sundance: Cobie Smulders On the Freedom 'How I Met Your Mother' Has Afforded Her

23 January 2015 7:28 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Since saying goodbye to CBS's mega-hit sitcom "How I Met Your Mother" last year in a series finale that left fans of the show divided, Canadian actress Cobie Smulders has remained in the spotlight thanks to her ties to Marvel and their "Avengers" franchise. As Agent Maria Hill, she appeared in last year's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and on the small screen in "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," and this summer she'll reprise the role for "Avengers: Age of Ultron." But at this year's Sundance Film Festival, Smulders is set to receive a lot of attention not because of Marvel, but her performances in two other the most hotly anticipated films premiering in the U.S. competition: "Results" and "Unexpected." In the former, directed by Sundance alum Andrew Bujalski, Smulders stars with Guy Pearce as a pair of personal trainers whose lives are upended by the actions of a new client. »
