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.

The first trailer for Cobie’s upcoming comedy, Alright Now has been released. Directed by Jamie Adams, Alright Now (formerly titled “Songbird”) hits theatres September 7th. Head over to the gallery for the latest additions and check out the trailer below.
A rock musician who drunkenly enrolls in college after she breaks up with her boyfriend and her band falls apart. Convinced she will give the youngsters a run for their money, she is shocked to discover that no one knows who she is, and they could not care less about her rock star past.
Gravitas Ventures has acquired all North American rights to the Cobie Smulders comedy Alright Now, Variety has learned exclusively.
Jamie Adams, whose credits include Black Mountain Poets, directed from his own script. Alright Now is produced by Unstoppable Film & Television and Dignity Film Finance through its Fivelanes label. The film will be released in select theaters across the country and on demand on September 7th.
Alright Now follows Smulders as a rock musician who drunkenly enrolls in college after she breaks up with her boyfriend and her band falls apart. Convinced she will give the youngsters a run for their money, she is shocked to discover that no one knows who she is, and they could not care less about her rock star past.
“Working with Gravitas Ventures on ‘Alright Now’ is incredible, to know that my latest improvisation-led comedy is being released by such a legendary distributor is exciting,” Adams said. “Cobie Smulders and the rest of ‘Alright Now’ team had a lot of fun making this movie and we can’t for everyone to see it!” (Source)
Vulture has confirmed that Samuel L. Jackson will star in Spider-Man: Far From Home, which means Fury will share scenes with Tom Holland’s web-slinger for the first time. The sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming comes out July 5, 2019, roughly two months after the still-untitled fourth Avengers film will presumably de-dust both Nick Fury and Peter Parker.
What’s more, we can confirm that Cobie Smulders will be joining Jackson in Spider-Man: Far From Home, where she’ll reprise her character Maria Hill, Fury’s frequent comrade-in-arms. Since she, too, was last seen evaporating into the wind at the end of Infinity War, perhaps Thanos should start worrying. (Sony had no comment on either casting.)
The Spidey sequel, currently shooting in Europe, adds Jackson and Smulders to an ensemble that will feature Jake Gyllenhaal as the villain and brings back much of Spider-Man: Homecoming’s winning cast, including Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, and Tony Revolori. And fortunately for Jackson, it will keep him employed until at least September. Who knew that death could present so many career opportunities? (Source)
Numan Acar, who is expected to play the Chameleon in the upcoming Spider-Man: Far from Home sequel, may have accidentally confirmed that Cobie Smulders, who plays Maria Hill in the MCU, will be involved in the sequel in some capacity.
Acar posted a selfie of himself with a number of hashtags that included #cobiesmulders. He has since removed the hashtags from the post, but no mention of why he had chosen to do so. Samuel L. Jackson has also recently taken to Instagram on July 11 with a suspicious S.H.I.E.L.D post: “Back to the familiar, the comfortable, the lovably fierce…” Jackson’s post said, likely referencing his role as Nick Fury.
At the end of Avengers: Infinity War we see both Hill and Fury fade into dust as they call on Captain Marvel. If the pair of characters are to return in Spider-Man: Far From Home after the events of the next Avengers movie, it can be assumed that S.H.I.E.L.D will have some impact in the next Spider-Man film, which could have significant implications for the cinematic universe.
The return of Nick Fury and Maria Hill would, at least in some part, signal the return of S.H.I.E.L.D. If S.H.I.E.L.D is to be rebuilt, it could mean that some of the original Avengers like Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, Bruce Banner, Natasha Romanoff, Clint Barton and others could possibly be stepping down from their superhero roles to help rebuild S.H.I.E.L.D from the ground up in order to support the next generation of heroes with Peter Parker at the forefront.
Kevin Feige has hinted everywhere that the next Avengers film will be the final chapter for many of the original characters, and that Spider-Man will be one of the most important characters in Phase 4 of the MCU. Feige has also made it known that the events of the next Avengers film will influence the plot of Far From Home significantly.
Only time will tell but we’ll keep our fingers crossed! (Source)
After smashing the record for the biggest opening weekend of all time, as well as becoming the fastest movie to reach $1 billion, Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is celebrating another box office success today as the movie becomes only the fourth film in history to reach $2 billion worldwide.
Domestically, Infinity War has pulled in $656.1 million and continues to pull in the cash, coming fifth in the chart this past weekend. However, it still trails Black Panther, which has earned $699.4 million in North America – Marvel’s biggest domestic haul.
Internationally, the superhero blockbuster has $1.346 billion for a grand total of $2.002 billion and counting. That’s the most for any Marvel movie (and any superhero movie) and will likely end up as the highest-grossing film not directed by James Cameron, a spot currently held by Star Wars: The Force Awakens on $2.06 billion.
Avatar remains the highest-grossing movie of all time on $2.78 billion, with Titanic following on $2.18 billion. (Source)
After smashing records for the biggest domestic and global openings in box office history last weekend, Avengers: Infinity War has now become the fastest movie to reach $1 billion at the worldwide box office.
Infinity War has hit the magical number just 11 days after it began its international roll out, beating the previous record of 12 days set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens at the end of 2015.
The Marvel Studios blockbuster is expected to comfortably retain top spot at the box office this weekend, and will presumably surpass The Avengers’ $1.52 billion by next weekend to become Marvel’s biggest ever release.
How far it can go remains to be seen, but the movie has its Chinese opening to come on Friday, May 11th, and a strong performance in that market will likely propel it to the $2 billion mark – a milestone which has only ever been achieved by Avatar, Titanic and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. (Source)
