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 »

Though he’s best known for horror, sci-fi, and/or superhero genre fare like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The Avengers, those who grew up watching Buffy’s troubled romantic entanglements with Angel and Spike will know that Joss Whedon has a bit of a soft spot for a supernatural love story.
Cue In Your Eyes, a romantic drama with a metaphysical edge that was penned by Whedon and directed by Brin Hill (Balls Don’t Lie). In Your Eyes stars Zoe Kazan (Ruby Sparks) and Michael Stahl-David (Cloverfield) as Rebecca and Dylan, two people who couldn’t have more different lives but who seem ...

Joss Whedon is currently globetrotting and filming "Avengers: Age of Ultron," but back in the old U.S.A., a new film written by the "Buffy" mastermind is about to premiere. "In Your Eyes" is one of several films debuting this week at the Tribeca Film Festival, but you may not have heard about it. Director Brin Hill filmed the sci-fi romance more than a year ago. The movie tells the story of Rebecca (Zoe Kazan) and ...

While Joss Whedon is currently directing the blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron, he hasn't forgotten about indie fare. His previous film was the microbudget adaptation of Much Ado about Nothing, and he also wrote the upcoming drama In Your Eyes. Directed by Brin Hill, In Your Eyes is "about two seemingly polar opposites who are deeply connected in ways neither could have ever imagined." The opening scene has gone online, and if it's focused on the younger versions of the two "polar opposities", then this scene reveals their intriguing, supernatural connection. Even though there is a supernatural twist, I almost got a Snow Angels vibe when it comes to an idyllic school environment being disrupted by a distant tragedy. I'm definitely curious to check out more of this film. Hit the jump to check out the In Your Eyes opening scene. The film stars Zoe Kazan (Ruby Sparks), Michael Stahl-David »

Joss Whedon fans waiting for "Avengers: Age of Ultron", here's something to tide you over. Back at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, Indiewire spoke to Whedon about his independent production company, Bellwether, and its first completed feature, his adaptation of Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing." Whedon mentioned that Bellwether started another feature before "Much Ado," and it's finally premiering at Tribeca Film Festival. "In Your Eyes," a science-fiction romance, stars Zoe Kazan and Michael Stahl-David as two people who can feel what the other is feeling despite not knowing each other and living on opposite sides of the country. Written by Whedon and directed by Brin Hill, it sounds like an ambitious, unusual love story, and Entertainment Weekly has released the first three minutes of the film online. The film establishes its conceit quickly and succinctly, showing a connection between the characters that reaches all the way back to childhood. »

You would think with all things Marvel on his plate, Joss Whedon wouldn't have time for much else, but you'd be wrong. Last year he dropped the indie Shakespearean tale "Much Ado About Nothing," and now he's headed into the Tribeca Film Festival as the writer and executive producer of the metaphysical romance "In Your Eyes." And today we have a little treat for you from the film. Produced by Kai Cole and Michael Roiff and directed by Brin Hill, the film stars Zoe Kazan, Michael Stahl-David, Nikki Reed, Mark Feuerstein, Steve Harris and Jennifer Grey in the tale that follows a sheltered East Coast housewife and an ex-con and waitress in New Mexico who all connect in ways they couldn't imagine. Weaving the movie together is composer Tony Morales ("Hatfields & McCoys," "The Bag Man"), and below you can listen to his evocative "Break Up" from the soundtrack, helping to power this unique film. »

Hey, look, it’s film festival time again! (It’s always film festival time, much like it’s always awards season time.) This time around, the films are unfurling at New York City’s own Tribeca Film Festival, and two of our very own NYC-based scribblers are on the ground to cover the best of what the festival has to offer. As ever, the festival offers a robust programming slate of brand-new premieres, holdovers from other festivals around the world (we recommend titles like In Your Eyes, Chef, and Begin Again, if you’re looking to play catch up), and some uniquely compelling titles just daring you to try them out (one word: zombeavers). The festival kicks off tonight with the premiere of the Nas documentary, Time Is Illmatic, and runs until Sunday, April 27th. For these next few days, Lower Manhattan will be jumping with the festival and its many offerings, and »

The Tribeca Film Festival began as a way for New York to rebuild culturally after the World Trade Center attacks in 2001. For the first time since then, the area around Ground Zero is dominated by a sparkly, newly finished Freedom Tower, which represents so much more than the city’s resilience and recovery. The Tribeca festival played a small, but not insignificant, role in that recovery, inviting artists and film lovers to the city and reassuring New Yorkers that life can be beautiful even in the darkest of days.
After more than a decade of growth, Tribeca is also entering »

Choreographer Greg Van Borssum posted a few photos of the cast for the $200 million "Justice League" movie that Warner Bros was developing back in 2007 with director George Miller (Mad Max, Happy Feet). Check out the photos below. At the time, "Superman Returns" flopped in theaters, which is why the studio recast Superman with DJ Cotrona and hired Armie Hammer as Batman, despite the fact that Christian Bale was still playing the character in "The Dark Knight" trilogy. Other cast members included Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter, Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Adam Brody as The Flash, Teresa Palmer as Talia al Ghul, and Megan Gale as Wonder Woman. Not in the photos are Common as John Stewart (aka Green Lantern), Anton Yelchin as Wally West, Zoe Kazan as Iris West and Stephen Tobolowsky as Alfred Pennyworth. The film obviously never happened and Warner Bros is now »
The 2014 Los Angeles Film Festival (Laff) has revealed that filmmaker Lisa Cholodenko ("The Kids Are All Right") will serve as artistic guest director for the upcoming edition of the fest.

Russell, Kathryn Bigelow, William Friedkin, Guillermo del Toro and Alfonso Cuaron.

Meanwhile, Sony Pictures Classics' Tom Bernard and Michael Barker will receive Laff 2014's Spirit of Independence Award. »

Hollywood stuntman and choreographer Greg van Borssum is offering up a piece of 'what if' Hollywood history today, as he shares photos of the Justice League cast assembling for Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller's canceled adaptation.
Way back in 2007, after Superman Returns proved to be a disappointment, Warner Bros. planned to move forward on a Justice League movie that recast the Man of Steel with D.J. Cotrona and gave us a new Batman in Armie Hammer, even though Christian Bale was in the midst of his The Dark Knight trilogy at the same time. Also seen in the first photo are (from bottom) director George Miller, Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter. Next row finds Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Adam Brody as The Flash, Teresa Palmer as Talia al Ghul, stuntman Greg van Borssum, and producer Barrie M. Osborne (The Lord of The Rings: The Two Towers »
As far I believe, these images posted by Hollywood stuntman and fight choreographer, Greg Van Borssum, are the first behind-the-scenes look at George Miller's Justice League: Mortal cast. You can see: Armie Hammer ("The Lone Ranger") who would've played Batman, Adam Brody ("The O.C.") who would've been The Flash, D.J. Cotrona ("G.I. Joe: Retaliation") who would've played Superman, Megan Gale ("Project Runway Australia") who would've played Wonder Woman, Santiago Cabrera ("Heroes") who would've played Aquaman, Hugh Keays-Byrne ("Mad Max: Fury Road") who would've played The Martian Manhunter, Teresa Palmer ("The Grudge 2") who would've played Talia Al Ghul and Jay Baruchel ("Goon") who would've played Maxwell Lord. Only main cast members not included in the images below are Common (John Stewart), Anton Yelchin (Wally West), Zoe Kazan (Iris West) and Stephen Tobolowsky (Alfred Pennyworth). In February of 2007, Warner Bros. hired Keiran and Michelle Mulroney to write a script »
