After unveiling the title and first teaser trailer earlier this month, directors Anthony and Joe Russo have been chatting to Empire about the massively-anticipated superhero sequel Avengers: Endgame, and how they can possibly manage to top this year’s epic Marvel blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War.
“With a lot of hard work,” said Joe. “Whether we top Infinity War or not, I don’t know. But we try to tell the best story we can with these characters. This is bringing to a close the first decade of stories. I think that alone has a dramatic power to it.”
“We’ve sat on the title, we’ve sat on the trailer, the last thing we want to do is give any clues to story structure or tone,” replied Joe when pressed for plot details, with Anthony adding: “These are characters and a story moving forward where Infinity War happened. The entire universe experienced the same fate, and has been brought together by this experience.”
Having previously revealed that the rough cut of Endgame was at the three-hour mark, Joe then went on to suggest that “there’s a high probability that this movie will clock in at around three hours. It’s a big movie with a lot of story.”

Like it or not, Friends From College is coming back. Netflix has announced that the polarizing comedy will return for Season 2 on Friday, January 11th, 2019 — nearly 18 months after the release of Season 1.
TV Line — The official logline clears up why any of these people would agree to be in the same room together following the events of the Season 1 finale. According to the official logline, a year has passed since Ethan (Keegan-Michael Key) and Sam (Annie Parisse) were revealed to be having an affair. Since then, Ethan’s estranged wife Lisa (Cobie Smulders) has been M.I.A., while Sam has been trying to salvage what’s left of her marriage to Jon (Greg Germann).
Max (Fred Savage), meanwhile, has reunited with on-again/off-again boyfriend Felix (Billy Eichner). When the couple announces that they’re getting married, the fractured friend group is forced to reunite for the engagement party, the bachelor party and the wedding.
As previously reported, Sarah Chalke (Scrubs) will recur in Season 2 as fellow former classmate Merrill, who reconnects with ex-boyfriend Nick (Nat Faxon) at a party.
One of the most important jobs of any actor involved in a popular franchise is not talking about what they’re working on. It’s got to be difficult to walk around with those big secrets and not spill anything while also doing all the media that these movies entail. It turns out, that some of them do end up revealing those sweet, sweet spoilers when they’re not supposed to. Taran Killam is married to Cobie Smulders who plays Maria Hill in the MCU, and while her role in Avengers: Infinity War wasn’t very big, knowing what happens to her reveals a great deal about the end of the movie, and she told her husband exactly what happened. According to Killam:
I remember when Cobie first told me she was auditioning for the first Avengers, just that was enough to get me so excited. [I was like] ‘Do you want me to read with you? We should rehearse again, right? Let’s do it one more time. What’s she going to wear?’ She actually snuck me a little illegal photo from the screen test. She did a screen test with about four or five other actresses. Infinity War was the first time where she let me know what was going to happen. Her tag was added on later in the schedule. She’s like, ‘Yeah, I’m there and then I disappear?’ I was like, ‘God, what does this mean? What does this mean?’
Alright Now tells the fictional story (based upon a few British bands) of Joanne Skye (played by Cobie Smulders), a fading rock star who refuses to accept that her career is, in fact, fading. Amid the borderline pathetic embers of her musical bonfire, Joanne impulsively and drunkenly decides to enroll in college, only to find that her voyage isn’t working out as planned. Her search for a new beginning leads to a few unexpected places in director Jamie Adams’ completely improvised film.
Smulders — whose career includes nearly a decade of How I Met Your Mother episodes, an untold number of appearances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and a smattering of assorted projects — throws herself into the unenviable position of portraying an unlovable heroine in this film. In our chat, she tells us how this character presented new challenges, and Smulders details how the craziness of modern society and social media has taught her to keep things real in her own life.
While I was watching this movie, it reminded me a lot of Drinking Buddies, not simply because there’s so much booze involved.
I was about to say … was it because there was a ton of alcohol?
Also because of the overall vibe. And I re-read the synopsis, which says “completely improvised” [like the dialogue in Drinking Buddies]. To what degree was the film really improvised?
The entire thing. There was no script. It was one of the reasons why I decided to do the project — because it seemed like a really big challenge. There was no script, we shot it over five days, and it was completely improvised, and we all met each other, and we all stayed in a house together in Cardiff (California). There was no dialogue, there was sort of a basic synopsis, and before approaching each scene, [director] Jamie Adams and I would decide what needs to be said, where do we need to go from here. So we would know what I’d have to say to give the [proper] information to the audience for the next couple of scenes to make sense, but dialogue-wise, no, there was not any script at all.
