Elizabeth and her Marvel co-star Paul Bettany grace the cover of 2021’s January issue of Empire UK, to promote their upcoming Disney+ show, WandaVision. Our gallery has been updated with scans, exclusive photos released by the publication, and you can read an article released below.

Ever since her introduction in the post-credits sequence of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Wanda Maximoff has always been an ensemble player in its subsequent superhero smackdowns, realigning her allegiances in Age Of Ultron, joining the airport fray in Civil War, and making sure Thanos knew exactly what she was capable of in the finale of Endgame. But she’s never been centre stage before, until now. In WandaVision, the first of the MCU’s upcoming run of Disney+ limited series which tie directly into the long-running movie franchise, she’s the star of the show, paired up once again with Paul Bettany’s Vision for a mind-bending sitcom-inspired comic book mystery.

Elizabeth Olsen’s character, aka Scarlet Witch, might have proved she was more powerful than we were ever aware of at the end of Endgame, but audiences are about to understand her a whole lot better – including what exactly she can do with those Mind Stone-imbued powers. “If you look at the Infinity Saga, I don’t think any single person has gone through more pain and trauma than Wanda Maximoff. And no character seems to be as powerful as Wanda Maximoff. And no character has a power-set that is as ill-defined and unexplored as Wanda Maximoff,” MCU boss Kevin Feige tells Empire. “So it seemed exploring that would be worthwhile post-Endgame. Who else is aware of that power? Where did it come from? Did the Mind Stone unlock it?”

The natural vehicle to explore that power-set? A six-episode romp through sitcom history, with Wanda experiencing a reality that sees her somehow living the American Dream with her robo-beau – despite the fact that we saw him definitively cark it in Infinity War. The results should be like nothing Marvel – or anyone else, for that matter – has done before, bringing superhero set-pieces and psychological character study to an unabashed love-letter to classic domestic situation comedies. “I loved TV, and watched far too much The Dick Van Dyke Show and I Love Lucy and Bewitched and everything,” Feige says of his viewing habits as a kid. And while the bits we’ve seen of WandaVision so far tease homages to old black-and-white series, it has plenty more up its sleeve. “We go up to the Modern Family and The Office style,” Feige reveals. “The talk-to-the-camera, shaky-camera, documentary style.”

“WandaVision” covers Entertainment Weekly  

We’ve got a WandaVision premiere date, everyone! That’s right, the upcoming Disney+ show starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany will be streaming on January 12, 2021. But before the release date was released, it had been announced that the duo would be covering the December issue of Entertainment Weekly and blessing us with some new images and information on the show. We’ve updated our gallery with the released stills and scans from the issue, and below you can watch a video interview and read the article!

001.jpg008.jpg002.jpg005.jpg

Last year, the notoriously secretive Marvel Studios did something unprecedented: It opened its set to visitors. WandaVision, the six-hour series about Elizabeth Olsen’s reality-altering witch and Paul Bettany’s charming android, takes inspiration from beloved TV comedies, from campy 1950s classics to the zany family shows of the ’90s. So for its premiere episode, Marvel’s first Disney+ TV show went full midcentury sitcom, filming in classic black and white in front of a live studio audience (all of whom signed very, very strict NDAs).

Crew members came to set in ’50s-era clothing, and used period lenses and lighting to capture that dreamy vintage glow. The special-effects team employed wires and camera tricks straight from Bewitched or I Dream of Jeannie, making wine bottles appear to pour on their own and household appliances zoom about like magic. And when Vision’s familiar maroon skin didn’t look quite right in grayscale, the makeup artists painted Bettany blue instead.

Bettany and Olsen rehearsed their entrances and exits as if putting on a play, and at first, they say the notion of live performance terrified them more than any Marvel supervillain. But by the time they secured their first audience chuckle, the pair realized they might have missed their calling as sitcom stars. “It was insanity,” Olsen, 31, says with a laugh. “There was something very meta for my own life because I would visit those tapings as a kid, where my sisters were working [on Full House].”

“I think the thing that i really wanted, as a producer, on a set, was lead by example of how you should treat people and, my favorite sets i’ve been on, the number one on the call sheets did that, or if the director were more the top dog, the director did that. It depends on the sets you were on, whether like the director’s more in control than the first – than the top actor, or who sets the tone. I just wanted to make sure that everyone felt collaborative, and that everyone felt like they’re being treated with respect, like across the board. Doesn’t matter what, like, what position you’re in and that to me is a really exciting place of leadership to be in. And that’s what i love about the combination of being an actor and producing at the same time. And there’s just, like, there’s a way that you can lay down the rules of how you should communicate with people and that’s something that i feel like we’ve always had, really nice sets because of it.” – Elizabeth Olsen, talking about her experience as Executive Producer in Sorry For Your Loss.

Elizabeth made her debut behind the camera as an Executive Producer for her Facebook Watch series, Sorry For Your Loss. She has expressed interest in producing animation, saying that what interests her is the “limitless of it.” while during a conversation with Build Series.

“The limitless of it. Like – i think, and the humor and i really like the children’s area right now. So, that’s what i’m curious about because i feel like we grew up in the 90’s children’s television” “Rugrats, Recess.” “And so fun and funny! And like, still today, so funny and i feel like we’ve like, just dumbed down like, children’s tv, and made it less clever for adults and like, we completely PC’ed like, everything, and so i’m just curious about how do you infuse that with a different point of view, or a point of view from the generation that’s now having kids.”

Running time: 20 episodes, 26-32 minutes

Elizabeth Olsen stars in this half-hour drama as Leigh Shaw, a young widow struggling to put her life back together after her husband’s unexpected death. The show is simultaneously devastating and uplifting with grounded, flawed characters who are desperate to find humor anywhere they can. The series dives into grief as an unavoidable, universal, transformative part of life. Leigh’s journey shows that grief is not something to merely endure, medicate away, or “muscle through,” but an essential part of the human experience.

Cast & Characters

Elizabeth Olsen (Leigh Shaw), Kelly Marie Tran (Jules Shaw), Jovan Adepo (Danny Greer), Mamoudou Athie (Matt Greer), Janet McTeer (Amy Shaw), Zack Robidas (Drew Burmester).

Production Notes

Around 2013, playwright Kit Steinkellner initially devised the series after composing a writing sample that was inspired by a night when she had thought something terrible had happened to her husband. She proceeded to send that piece of writing to Robin Schwartz, a programming executive at the production company Big Beach, who liked Steinkellner’s concept and had her draft a full script. By 2014, the production was set up at Showtime, then under the title Widow, where it languished in the development process over the ensuing years. Eventually, Big Beach was able to extract the series from the network and began to shop it to various streaming services and pay-cable television networks.

On February 9, 2018, it was announced that Facebook had given the production a straight-to-series order for a first season consisting of ten episodes. Steinkellner was set to executive produce the series alongside Schwartz, Elizabeth Olsen, Lizzy Weiss, James Ponsoldt, Marc Turtletaub and Peter Saraf, Cynthia Pett, Brad Petrigala, and Jon Liebman. Additionally, Weiss was expected to serve as the series’ showrunner, Ponsoldt as the director of multiple episodes, and Avy Kaufman as the series’ casting director. Production companies slated to be involved in the series included Big Beach TV, a subsidiary of independent film company Big Beach.

On March 1, 2018, it was announced that the series had been retitled Sorry for Your Loss and its central premise was revealed. On August 3, 2018, it was reported that the series would premiere on September 18, 2018. On December 13, 2018, it was announced that the series had been renewed for a second season.

Alongside the series order announcement, it was confirmed that Elizabeth Olsen had been cast in the series’ lead role. On March 1, 2018, it was announced that Kelly Marie Tran had been cast in a series regular role. The following day, it was reported that Jovan Adepo had joined the main cast and that Janet McTeer and Mamoudou Athie were in talks for series regular roles. A week later, it was announced that McTeer and Athie had officially joined the cast.

Principal photography for the first season began on April 18, 2018 at CBS Studio Center in Los Angeles. On June 1, 2018, filming took place in Altadena, California. Filming occurred from June 5 to June 8, 2018 at the Parker Palm Springs hotel in Palm Springs, California.

Critical Response

The series has been met with a positive response from critics upon its premiere. On the review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes, the series holds a 93% approval rating, with an average rating of 7.58 out of 10 based on 30 reviews. The website’s critical consensus reads, “Thoroughly honest and insightful, Sorry For Your Loss tackles a sensitive theme, but with a witty touch.” Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned the series a score of 83 out of 100 based on 12 critics, indicating “universal acclaim.”

In a positive review, The Atlantics Sophie Gilbert offered effusive praise describing the show as the “kind of series that’s instantly so fully formed, so funny and candid and wrenching right from the start, that you almost question the emotional propriety of it all.” Similarly enthusiastic, The Daily Beasts Kevin Fallon said of the series, “Sorry For Your Loss is a gem of a show. With a cast this impressive—in Olsen, an Avenger; in Tran, a Star Wars alum; in McTeer, a renowned Oscar nominee—a series this well-executed would ordinarily be a marquee entry in the fall TV season.” In another favorable critique, Colliders Allison Keene commended the show saying, “Sorry for Your Loss is an intense, emotionally raw meditation on grief. And yet, it’s never overwhelming as much as engrossing.” In a further approving evaluation, Salons Melanie McFarland commended the performances of the cast saying, “The feelings Olsen, Tran and the rest of the cast capture come across as true and natural, more affirming than depressing, a difficult balancing act to pull off in the most typical of dramas and in brighter months.”

In a more mixed assessment, Slates Inkoo Kang criticized the series saying, “Good intentions and all-around excellent performances can’t make Sorry for Your Loss add up to the sum of its parts. Its keen sensitivity points to the dearth of grounded, relatable shows about loss, but falls short of filling that gap itself.” In a negative review, IndieWires Ben Travers gave the series a grade of “C-” and described it as, “little more than a meditation on death, offering a turgid reminder that the end is inescapable for us all and can be devastating for those we leave behind.”

Episode Stills | Screen Captures

Now Knights of Forlona, the party are told that the obelisk is channeling mana from the other obelisks surrounding the city and down into the earth for some unknown purpose. To destroy it, Feldspar introduces the party to Prisoner 84, a half-elf arsonist named Stirrup (Elizabeth Olsen), an explosives expert serving a sentence for multiple acts of destruction. Given four limited-use rings of Featherfall and catapulted to the roof of the obelisk, they find a welded hatch that Stirrup blows open. Inside they stumble through a puzzle involving a magical mirror and eventually reach the obelisk’s power source and destroy it, blowing the four of them clear and crumbling the obelisk. As they float to the ground, Boneweevil is lauded by a crowd, which disparages Fondue and Beor as “old news.” As the lattice of energy overhead dissipates and the obelisk network goes dark, Celty’s floating castle appears and fires a giant beam of destructive magic at the Royal Palace, destroying it entirely, and beginning a hostile takeover of Forlona City.

Each episode begins with the girls singing the theme song. Following the theme song, the girls receive a phone call, informing them of some urgent mystery that needs to be solved. Their motto is “We’ll solve any crime by dinnertime.” Each video features the girls singing multiple songs about the mystery they are working on. They never fail to solve the mystery with their sidekick, Clue (a Basset Hound), and, indeed, the solution is usually something either very obvious or very trivial, to give the video a humorous ending.

Production Notes

Principal photography began on August 10, 2017, under the working title Mary Lou 2, at Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Fayette County, Georgia, with Trent Opaloch serving as director of photography. The film, along with Infinity War, were shot using IMAX/Arri 2D cameras, thus marking the first time that a Hollywood feature film was shot entirely with IMAX digital cameras. Also in the month, filming occurred in The Gulch area of Downtown Atlanta, near the Five Points MARTA station, and Piedmont Park. Feige explained that the films were originally scheduled to be filmed simultaneously but were ultimately shot back-to-back, as “It became too complicated to cross-board them like that, and we found ourselves—again, something would always pay the price. We wanted to be able to focus and shoot one movie and then focus and shoot another movie.” Anthony Russo originally felt it made more sense to shoot the films simultaneously due to financial and logistical reasons considering the large number of cast members, and had suggested that “some days we’ll be shooting the first movie and some days we’ll be shooting the second movie. Just jumping back and forth.” The 2013 Asgard scenes were shot at Durham Cathedral in Durham, England during production of Infinity War in early May 2017. Production wrapped on January 11, 2018, although additional filming took place in Dutchess and Ulster counties in New York in June 2018. Reshoots began by September 7, 2018, and concluded on October 12, 2018. More reshoots occurred in January 2019. Location shooting also took place in St Abbs, Scotland, which doubled for New Asgard in Norway. 

The film’s official title, Avengers: Endgame, and final U.S. release date of April 26, 2019, were revealed with the film’s first trailer in December 2018. Visual effects for the film were created by Industrial Light & Magic, Weta Digital, DNEG, Framestore, Cinesite, Digital Domain, Rise, Lola VFX, Cantina Creative, Capital T, Technicolor VFX, and Territory Studio. As with previous MCU films, Lola worked on the de-aging sequences; the film features 200 de-aging and aging shots. Downey, Evans, Ruffalo, Hemsworth, Johansson, and Renner were de-aged to their 2012 appearances for scenes recreated from The Avengers (2012). Michael Douglas, John Slattery, and Stan Lee were also de-aged for the 1970 New Jersey sequence; Douglas’ appearance in The Streets of San Francisco was referenced. Lola also aged-up Evans for the final scene where he is portrayed as an elderly man, using some make-up and a stand-in as reference. Jeffrey Ford and Matthew Schmidt served as the film’s editors.

Trivia

  • Elizabeth Olsen knows her character could take down Thanos by herself, as she explained in an interview with IMDB while appearing at D23 Expo. “Yeah, he brought out the big guns he didn’t even mean to bring out. I was getting him good,” Olsen said. “Hello, someone was angry, and had somethin’ to say about it. And it was this one right here,” she added, pointing to herself.
  • Scarlet Witch’s powers are directly influenced by her internal struggle. She has grown more powerful as she deals with the death of Vision.
  • Release & Reception

    Avengers: Endgame had its world premiere at the Los Angeles Convention Center on April 22, 2019. Disney converted the convention center’s Hall K for the film’s premiere, working with Dolby and QSC Audio to install a 70 foot (21 metres) screen, Dolby Vision projectors, and a Dolby Atmos sound system. The convention center also held the premiere’s red carpet arrival and after-party. The film was released in Australia, China, and other parts of Asia and Europe on April 24, in the United Kingdom on April 25, in the United States and India on April 26, and in Russia on April 29 in IMAX and 3D. It was originally scheduled to be released in the United States on May 3. Radio Liberty alleged that the Russian government postponed the film’s release in that country to promote Russian-produced films. Avengers: Endgame is part of Phase Three of the MCU.

    The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported an approval rating of 94% with an average score of 8.24/10, based on 505 reviews. The website’s critics consensus reads, “Exciting, entertaining, and emotionally impactful, Avengers: Endgame does whatever it takes to deliver a satisfying finale to Marvel’s epic Infinity Saga.” Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned the film a score of 78 out of 100 based on 57 critics, indicating “generally favorable reviews”. Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film a rare “A+” grade, the third Marvel film to earn the score after The Avengers and Black Panther, while those at PostTrak gave it 5 out of 5 stars and a “definite recommend” of 85%.

    Writing for NPR, Glen Weldon gave the film a positive review and found the film to be a worthy sequel to its predecessor, stating, “The Russos’ decision to stick close to the experiences of the remaining Avengers proves a rewarding one, as they’ve expressly constructed the film as an extended victory lap for the Marvel Cinematic Universe writ large. Got a favorite character from any Marvel movie over the past decade, no matter how obscure? Prepare to get serviced, fan.” Peter Travers in his review for Rolling Stone gave the film 4 out of 5 stars, saying, “You don’t have to make jokes about the clichéd time travel plot – the film is ready, willing and able to make its own, with Back to the Future coming in for a serious ribbing.”

    Peter Debruge of Variety wrote, “After the must-see showdown that was Infinity War, the Russo brothers deliver a more fan-facing three-hour follow-up, rewarding loyalty to Marvel Cinematic Universe.” J. R. Kinnard of PopMatters wrote, “Big budget action filmmaking doesn’t get much better than this.” Todd McCarthy of The Hollywood Reporter said, “[W]hat comes across most strongly here, oddly enough for an effects-driven comic-book-derived film, is the character acting, especially from Downey, Ruffalo, Evans, Hemsworth, Brolin and Paul Rudd”. Richard Roeper, writing for the Chicago Sun-Times, gave the film four stars and praised its “emotional punch”, as well as the “funny, well-paced, smart, expertly rendered screenplay by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, crisp direction from Anthony Russo and Joe Russo…, and the universally stellar performances”.

    Richard Brody, writing for The New Yorker, was more critical of the film, opining that the good acting was not matched by comparable skill from the directors. He said, “The Russos have peculiarly little sense of visual pleasure, little sense of beauty, little sense of metaphor, little aptitude for texture or composition; their spectacular conceit is purely one of scale, which is why their finest moments are quiet and dramatic ones”. Anthony Lane of The New Yorker gave the film a compromising review, finding it to be overdeveloped and overwrought, stating, “The one thing you do need to know about Avengers: Endgame is that it runs for a little over three hours, and that you can easily duck out during the middle hour, do some shopping, and slip back into your seat for the climax. You won’t have missed a thing.”

    Production Notes

    In October 2014, Marvel announced a two-part sequel to Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), titled Avengers: Infinity WarPart 1 was scheduled to be released on May 4, 2018, with Part 2 scheduled for May 3, 2019. In April 2015, Marvel announced that Anthony and Joe Russo would direct both parts of Avengers: Infinity War, with back-to-back filming expected to begin in 2016. The next month, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely had signed on to write the screenplays for both parts of the film, which draws inspiration from Jim Starlin’s 1991 The Infinity Gauntlet comic and Jonathan Hickman’s 2013 Infinity comic. Anthony Russo added the film was inspired by 1990s heist films, with Thanos “on a smash-and-grab [to acquire the Infinity Stones], and everybody’s trying to catch up the whole movie”. Producer Kevin Feige said that the Infinity War films were subtitled Part 1 and Part 2 “because they [have] such shared elements, it felt appropriate… But I wouldn’t call it one story that’s cut in half. I would say it’s going to be two distinct movies”. In May 2016, the Russos revealed that they would retitle the two films, to further remove the misconception that they were one large film split in two, with Joe stating, “The intention is we will change [the titles], we just haven’t come up with [them] yet”. That July, Marvel revealed Part 1s title would be shortened to simply Avengers: Infinity War.

    Principal photography began on January 23, 2017, under the working title Mary Lou, at Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Fayette County, Georgia, with Trent Opaloch as director of photography. Infinity War, along with Avengers: Endgame, were shot using IMAX/Arri 2D cameras, thus marking the first time that a Hollywood feature film was shot entirely with IMAX digital cameras. In early February, Marvel confirmed the involvement of Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark / Iron Man, Chris Pratt as Peter Quill / Star-Lord, and Tom Holland as Peter Parker / Spider-Man in the film. Additional filming took place in Scotland beginning in February 2017. The filming occurred in Edinburgh, Glasgow and the Scottish Highlands, with studio work taking place at Wardpark Studios in Cumbernauld. In late June 2017, filming occurred in Downtown Atlanta, as well as Atlanta’s Central Park in early July, before moving to Queens, New York in the middle of the month. Filming concluded on July 14, 2017. For the film’s final scene, where Thanos settles in a nipa hut, the filmmakers worked with Thailand studio Indochina Productions to acquire footage of the Banaue Rice Terraces at Ifugao, Philippines.

    Later in July 2017, Joe Russo stated there were a couple of unfinished scenes for Infinity War that would be shot “in the next few months”. In early March 2018, Disney moved the release of Infinity War in the United States to April 27, 2018, to have it be released the same weekend as some of its international markets. Visual effects for the film were created by Industrial Light & Magic, Framestore, Method Studios, Weta Digital, DNEG, Cinesite, Digital Domain, Rise, Lola VFX, and Perception. With an estimated budget in the range of $316–400 million, it is one of the most expensive films ever made. Evans and Hemsworth both earned $15 million for the film.

    Trivia

  • Unlike the previous two “team-up” movies that Marvel has made, no new heroes are introduced in this movie. Wanda Maximoff (Scarlet Witch) and The Vision were introduced in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), and Spider-Man and Black Panther made their first appearances in Captain America: Civil War (2016). All of the heroes from The Avengers (2012) appeared in earlier movies.
  • [at around 37 mins] When Scarlet Witch and Vision see the attack in New York City, she’s standing outside a shop in Edinburgh, Scotland. You can clearly see a sign inside the store that reads “we will deep fry your Kebab”. There is a long running joke (in the U.K. at least) that Scots will deep fry absolutely any food unnecessarily, which stems from the infamous Deep Fried Mars Bar.
  • When the Avengers regroup at headquarters in upstate New York, Colonel James Rhodes (War Machine) was the only one who had been there the whole time. This comes to show that, since the events of Captain America: Civil War (2016), Rhodey was the only member of the Avengers to remain loyal to the Sokovia Accords. Tony Stark (Iron Man) is still a registered Avenger, but he regularly defies the Accords, Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow) was excommunicated for helping Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes escape the Berlin Airport, and Vision went into exile alongside Wanda Maximoff (Scarlet Witch) because of his emotional attachment to her. When The Avengers regroup in this movie, however, even Rhodey was willing to turn against the Accords to assist his former teammates in the greater cause.
  • Release & Reception

    The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported an approval rating of 85% with an average score of 7.63/10, based on 456 reviews. The website’s critical consensus reads, “Avengers: Infinity War ably juggles a dizzying array of MCU heroes in the fight against their gravest threat yet, and the result is a thrilling, emotionally resonant blockbuster that (mostly) realizes its gargantuan ambitions.” Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned the film a score of 68 out of 100 based on 54 critics, indicating “generally favorable reviews”.

    Todd McCarthy of The Hollywood Reporter praised the writers’ and directors’ ability to balance the large cast of characters, saying they, “under the supervision of Marvel Films maestro Kevin Feige, acknowledge the traffic jam of egos and play it for laughs”. Owen Gleiberman of Variety concurred, stating, “Infinity War is a brashly entertaining jamboree, structured to show off each hero or heroine and give them just enough to do, and to update their mythologies without making it all feel like homework”. Rolling Stones Peter Travers said the film is “too much of a good thing” and wrote, “The Russo brothers have clearly never learned the concept that less is more. They’ve used the premise of an Avengers reunion to put on a fireworks explosion of action and laughs that won’t quit”. Richard Roeper of the Chicago Sun-Times called it Marvel’s “biggest and most ambitious movie yet”, but concluded “it’s certainly not the best. However, there’s plenty of action, humor and heart—and some genuinely effective dramatic moments”. Roeper went on to praise the film’s cast and Josh Brolin in particular, whom he called “the film’s most interesting performance”. Gleiberman called Brolin’s motion capture performance “supremely effective” and said, “Brolin infuses Thanos with his slit-eyed manipulative glower, so that the evil in this movie never feels less than personal”. McCarthy wrote, “Brolin’s calm, considered reading of the character bestows this conquering beast with an unexpectedly resonant emotional dimension, making him much more than a thick stick figure of a supervillain”. Gleiberman also praised the film’s action sequences, saying “Infinity War brims with tensely spectacular combat sequences, even if the question of who’s going to win each one has that extravagantly arbitrary could-Mighty-Mouse-beat-up-Superman? quality”. McCarthy called the scale of the action “astonishing”, and Travers wrote, “Avengers: Infinity War leaves viewers up in the air, feeling exhilarated and cheated at the same time, aching for a closure that never comes”. Josh Spiegel, also of The Hollywood Reporter, said the film takes “a cue from the ending of The Empire Strikes Back in its super-sized finale; this is the equivalent of Han Solo frozen in the carbonite, on steroids”.

    A. O. Scott of The New York Times criticized the film’s reliance on other films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, saying, “Considered on its own, as a single, nearly 2-hour-40-minute movie, Avengers: Infinity War makes very little sense”, but conceded that it “was never meant to be viewed or judged in isolation”. Richard Brody of The New Yorker agreed, stating, “The insubstantiality of the film isn’t due to the infinite yet flimsy malleability of C.G.I. gimmickry but, instead, to the dispersion of its drama throughout the many cinematic installations set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe”. Stephanie Zacharek of Time said, “[It] isn’t really a beginning, but more of a middle or an end with a new piece of yarn attached. You need to have seen and internalized every one of the previous 18 Marvel Cinematic Universe movies to fully get it”. Justin Chang of the Los Angeles Times called it a “brisk, propulsive, occasionally rousing and borderline-gutsy continuation of a saga that finally and sensibly seems to be drawing to a close”, but called its ultimate bid for catharsis “unsuccessful” since the Marvel “assembly line [is not stopped] from chugging ahead with its signature polished, mechanized efficiency”. Scott also criticized the action sequences, calling them “tedious and predictable” and “surely the most expensive parts of the movie, but the money seems less like an imaginative tool than a substitute for genuine imagination”. Likewise, Zacharek said, “There’s no pacing in Avengers: Infinity War. It’s all sensation and no pulse. Everything is big, all of the time”.

    With many people fearing the actions of super heroes, the government decides to push for the Hero Registration Act, a law that limits a hero’s actions. This results in a division in The Avengers. Iron Man stands with this Act, claiming that their actions must be kept in check otherwise cities will continue to be destroyed, but Captain America feels that saving the world is daring enough and that they cannot rely on the government to protect the world. This escalates into an all-out war between Team Iron Man (Iron Man, Black Panther, Vision, Black Widow, War Machine, and Spider-Man) and Team Captain America (Captain America, Bucky Barnes, Falcon, Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye, and Ant Man) while a new villain emerges.

    Production Notes

    In March 2014, Anthony and Joe Russo confirmed that they had signed on to return as directors for a third Captain America film, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Kevin Feige as producer, and Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely as screenwriters. Markus and McFeely had been working on the screenplay since late 2013, while the Russo brothers began work in February 2014. The re-hiring of the directors, three months before the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, came as a result of Marvel executives being impressed with test screenings of that film.

    In August 2014, the Russos stated that the film would be set “a couple years” after The Winter Soldier, and would continue to focus on Steve Rogers’ relationship with Bucky Barnes as well as the political themes related to Captain America. Anthony stated, “The character was invented for an explicitly political purpose. So it’s hard to get away from that nature.” The Russos also said that they would be “bringing some new elements to the table that will give us a twist on Winter Soldier“, and indicated that filming was scheduled to begin in Atlanta. They described themselves as “ecstatic” with a first draft of the screenplay submitted by Markus and McFeely, and also stated that the film’s title would be announced “in a month or so at most”, and that the concept and title for the film came from Feige, who had it “for a while”. In September, Joe expanded by saying the film would have another “big idea that alters the universe as a whole in some way” similar to S.H.I.E.L.D. falling in The Winter Soldier. The rest of the film, such as the characters, story, and tone, would be left open to the Russos’ and writers’ interpretations.

    In November 2014, Daniel Brühl joined the cast in an unspecified role, while Anthony Mackie and Frank Grillo were confirmed to return as Sam Wilson / Falcon and Brock Rumlow / Crossbones, respectively. Following the November 2014 hacking of Sony Pictures’ computers, emails between Sony Pictures Entertainment co-chairman Amy Pascal and president Doug Belgrad were released stating that Marvel wanted to include Spider-Man (whose film rights are licensed to Sony) in the film, but talks between the studios concerning this were believed to have broken down. However, in February 2015, Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios reached a licensing deal for the use of Spider-Man in an MCU film, and reports indicated that the character would indeed appear in Civil War. The Russos stated they were lobbying for months to include the character in the film. In January 2015, Mackie revealed that, in addition to Atlanta, filming locations would include Puerto Rico and Berlin, while the Russo brothers confirmed that Scarlett Johansson would return in the film as Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow. Editor Jeffrey Ford, who worked on The Winter Soldier, also signed on for Civil War. In March 2015, Jeremy Renner was revealed to be reprising his role as Clint Barton / Hawkeye. The next month, it was revealed that the film would be converted to 3D in post-production, and that Brühl would be playing Helmut Zemo. Additionally, Elizabeth Olsen revealed she would reprise her role in the film as Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch.

    Trivia

  • Vision, Hawkeye, Ant-Man, and Scarlet Witch weren’t part of the original comic book storyline. The first three were dead at the time, while Wanda was missing and insane.
  • The film shows a bond beginning to form between Scarlet Witch and Vision, who were married for a while in the comic books.
  • Although she is never mentioned as a mutant (Twentieth Century Fox owned the term rights at that time), Scarlet Witch is the only mutant among the Avengers in this movie, and she is seen with a collar when locked in Raft Prision, which can be a reference to the X-Gene Inhibitor Collar, created in the comics by Bolivar Trask to suppress mutant powers. The collar has been featured before in X-2: X-Men United (2003) and X-Men: Days Of Future Past (2014).
  • Release & Reception

    Captain America: Civil War premiered at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on April 12, 2016, and was screened at CinemaCon 2016 on April 13. The film’s Southeast Asia premiere was held on April 21 at the Marina Bay Sands resort in Singapore, while the European premiere took place at Vue Cinemas in Westfield London on April 26. The film was released internationally starting from April 27, releasing in 61 countries its first weekend, including the United Kingdom on April 29. The North America release on May 6, took place in over 4,200 theaters, of which 3,300 were in 3D, along with 378 IMAX theaters, 480 premium large-format, and 161 D-Box locations. Internationally, the film opened in 955 IMAX theaters, while South Korea saw Civil War open in an “unprecedented” 1,989 theaters. Captain America: Civil War was the first film released in Phase Three of the MCU. In September 2014, TNT acquired the cable broadcast rights for Captain America: Civil War to air two years after its theatrical release.

    The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported a 91% approval rating with an average score of 7.72/10, based on 406 reviews. The website’s critical consensus reads, “Captain America: Civil War begins the next wave of Marvel movies with an action-packed superhero blockbuster boasting a decidedly non-cartoonish plot and the courage to explore thought-provoking themes.” Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned a score of 75 out of 100 based on 52 critics, indicating “generally favorable reviews”. Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an “A” grade on an A+ to F scale, while PostTrak reported filmgoers gave it an 88% overall positive score and a 75% “definite recommend”.

    Justin Chang of Variety called it “the most mature and substantive picture to have yet emerged from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.” Sheri Linden of The Hollywood Reporter said, “Call it ‘civil war’ or call it brand extension; call it a ‘cinematic universe’ or a corporate behemoth—the latest Marvel extravaganza furthers the studio’s cross-pollination of action franchises in a way that’s sure to satisfy devotees.” Robbie Collin of The Daily Telegraph wrote, “This is the cinematic superhero showdown you’ve dreamt of since childhood, precisely because that’s everything—and all—it wants to be.” Catherine Shoard of The Guardian called it, “a huge aspartame rush of a film: a giant irresistible snack, not nutritious, but very tasty.” Richard Roeper of the Chicago Sun-Times wrote, “Kudos to co-directors Anthony and Joe Russo and the team of writers for juggling more than a dozen comic-book characters and nearly that many plot lines, and only occasionally getting us (and by us I mean me) lost in the geek weeds.” Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times said, “If you live and breathe Marvel, this is one of the MCU’s stronger offerings. If you are a spy coming in from the cold, the answer is not so clear.” A. O. Scott of The New York Times wrote, “Captain America: Civil War does not in any way transcend the conventions of the genre. On the contrary: It succeeds because it doesn’t really try.”

    Conversely, Stephen Whitty of the New York Daily News said, “Although it’s called Captain America: Civil War, the latest Marvel movie is actually a supersized Avengers picture—overstuffed to bursting. And sometimes during its two and a half hour running time, it just goes bust.” Mick LaSalle of the San Francisco Chronicle said, “As a work of thought, Civil War is compromised, but at least there are thoughts to compromise. As an action film, it has its moments, but aside from the big opening sequence—the action scenes are a bit flat.” Andrew O’Hehir writing for Salon said, “Much of Captain America: Civil War is just the laborious working-out of leftover dangling plot elements from Captain America: The Winter Soldier two summers ago.” While Nicholas Barber of BBC gave the film a generally favorable review, praising both its visuals and action sequences, he criticized the fact that there was “no cogent reason for any of [the Avengers] to be on one side or the other, which is why their inevitable dust-up feels like a game of dodgeball in a school playground.” Mark Millar, writer of the “Civil War” comic storyline on which the film was based, felt the film “had a good opening twenty [minutes], but then I honestly can’t remember what the movie was about.” He also felt the film lacked levity, especially considering the Russo brothers’ background in comedy.

    Production Notes

    According to Sheridan, he was inspired to write this film because he learned about the “thousands of actual stories just like it”: referring to the high number of Indigenous women who are victims of sexual assault and/or murder. He wrote and directed the movie to make more people aware of this problem.

    The film is the third installment of Taylor Sheridan’s trilogy of “the modern-day American frontier”, the first being Sicario in 2015, and Hell or High Water the next year. Principal photography on the film began on March 12, 2016 in Utah and lasted until April 25, 2016.

    Trivia

    • During the course of the shoot, writer-director Taylor Sheridan was visited on set by some Shoshone tribal leaders who astonished him with the revelation that, at that very time, there were 12 unsolved murders of young women on a reservation of about 6,000 people. Due to a 1978 landmark government ruling (Oliphant v. Suquamish), the Supreme Court stripped tribes of the right to arrest and prosecute non-natives who commit crimes on native land. If neither victim nor perpetrator are native, a county or state officer must make the arrest. If the perpetrator is non-native and the victim an enrolled member, only a federally-certified agent has that right. If the opposite is true, a tribal officer can make the arrest, but the case must still go to federal court. This quagmire creates a jurisdictional nightmare by choking up the legal process on reservations to such a degree, many criminals go unpunished indefinitely for serious crimes.
    • The film received a lengthy 8 minutes standing ovation at the end of its premiere in the Un Certain Regard competition of the Cannes film festival.
    • Wind River Indian Reservation is the seventh-largest Indian reservation in the U.S.
    • Elizabeth Olsen experienced snow blindness while shooting the film.
    • After the news of Harvey Weinstein’s history of sexual assaults and harassment fully broke in late 2017, Taylor Sheridan called The Weinstein Company’s then-interim Chairman David Glassner and gave them an ultimatum: the company would remove its logo and any production credits from the film for all post-theatrical airings, and agree to turn down any future compensation from its release, and in return there would be no other dealings. Glassner immediately agreed to Sheridan’s demands.

    Release & Reception

    The Weinstein Company acquired the distribution rights on May 13, 2016, during the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. In January 2017, it was announced that the company would no longer distribute the film, but the distribution deal was later finalized. It had a limited release on August 4, 2017, before going wide on August 18.

    In October 2017, following reporting on the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse scandal, Lionsgate announced that it would distribute the film on home media and streaming services. The Weinstein Company (TWC) name and logo were omitted from the credits, trailer, and packaging. As a result, The Weinstein Company finally stopped distributing the film. Sheridan had required that TWC be deleted from the materials, and demanded that all money Weinstein would have made on this work be donated to charity.

    On review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 88% based on 241 reviews, with an average rating of 7.69/10. The website’s critical consensus reads, “Wind River lures viewers into a character-driven mystery with smart writing, a strong cast, and a skillfully rendered setting that delivers the bitter chill promised by its title.” On Metacritic, the film has a weighted average score of 73 out of 100, based on 44 critics, indicating “generally favorable reviews”. Audiences polled by PostTrak gave the film a 90% overall positive score and a 70% “definite recommend”.

    Owen Gleiberman of Variety described Wind River as a “humanistic crime drama, though this one has more skill than excitement”. Chris Plante of The Verge described it as “a thrilling, violent finale to the Hell or High Water and Sicario trilogy”, and as “Coen brothers noir meets the case of the week.”

    Writing for Rolling Stone, Peter Travers praised Sheridan’s direction and the cast, giving the film 3/4 stars. He wrote: “[It’s] the set-up for what could have been a conventional whodunit – thankfully, Sheridan is allergic to all things conventional. To him, the action is character, and he’s lucked out by finding actors who not only understand his approach but thrive on it.” David Ehrlich of IndieWire gave the film a B, writing: “[If] Wind River shares Sheridan’s self-evident weaknesses, it also makes the most of his signature strengths. […] Wind River may not blow you away, but this bitter, visceral, and almost paradoxically intense thriller knows what it takes to survive.”

    In a High Country News article titled “Why do white writers keep making films about Indian Country?”, Native commentator Jason Asenap praises the film as “a thinking-person’s thriller” full of complex characters, and describes the film’s focus on missing Native American women as “admirable.” He criticizes the film for perpetuating the “dying Indians” motif:

    “at least in Hollywood, the Indians die. To this day, the Indians die, and not just physically, but culturally. Simpson and Sheridan are invested in making us see how America has screwed Native people, but to the point of rubbing it in our faces. Is it so terrible to live in one’s own homeland? It may be hard to get out, but it certainly feels condescending for a non-Native to write as much.”

    The filmmakers were criticized for casting non-Native actors in some of the Native American roles.

    Production Notes

    Principal photography began on July 11, 2016 in Los Angeles and wrapped August 12, 2016 in Joshua Tree, California. A focal point of the film is “All My Life” by K-Ci & JoJo; initially this song was meant to be Seal’s “Kiss from a Rose” (which would have tied into the Dan character’s Batman obsession, as it’s from the Batman Forever soundtrack), but Seal’s asking price for the song was higher than the production could afford. Spicer’s sister recommended “All My Life” as a replacement.

    Trivia

  • The production was delayed by some setbacks when director Matt Spicer accidentally walked through a sliding glass door after yelling “cut” and gaffers had to remove fragments of glass from his arm with duct tape. At one point the production had to evacuate their location due to the raging Santa Clarita brush fires in L.A. county.
  • The short film “Hi Stranger (2016)” was attached to this film in the United States/Canada by distributor Neon.
  • Pappy and Harriet’s, the bar that Ingrid and Taylor visit while staying in Joshua Tree, was a principal location for Howling: New Moon Rising (1995).

    Production Notes

    Director Marc Abraham began developing the film in 2009 and adapted the screenplay himself. In June 2014, producers secured the rights to Williams’ music for the film after making a deal with Sony ATV. Aaron L. Gilbert with Bron Studios will produce alongside Brett Ratner’s production company RatPac Entertainment, G. Marq Roswell and Abraham. Creative Wealth Media Finance will finance the film. On 12 June 2014, British actor Tom Hiddleston who was set to play Hank Williams, posted an image of himself on his Twitter account, dressed as Williams with the title of the film as the caption.

    Hiddleston will sing his own music for the film, also taking on Williams’ southern accent. To prepare for the film and work on his singing and guitar playing, Hiddleston practiced with country singer Rodney Crowell. In July 2014, Crowell signed on to be the executive music producer for the film while Carter Little, who has worked with the Black Keys on The Man With the Iron Fists, signed on to serve as music supervisor. Crowell said of Hiddleston, “After nearly a month spent collaborating with this gifted artist, I’m as respectful of the man’s work ethic as I’m mystified by his transformational skills. Without a doubt, the filmmakers chose the right actor for the job.”

    At the 2014 Wheatland Music Festival, Hiddleston sang “Move It on Over” and “Jambalaya (On the Bayou)”, promoting the film.

    Casting for the film for extras and additional actors begin in September 2014. Casting was done by Legacy Casting and Tracy Kilpatrick of The Casting Office. On September 12, Rolling Stone announced that Elizabeth Olsen would be playing Audrey Williams, Hank’s wife, manager, duet partner.

    Trivia

  • Both Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen did their own singing.
  • In an interview with the New York Times, published on March 20, 2016, director Marc Abraham said he felt it was important to show the fiery nature of the relationship between Hank Williams and his first wife, Audrey. He said “That was the fire. That’s where the songs come from.”
  • The real Audrey Williams was several months older than Hank Williams. Tom Hiddleston is eight years older than Elizabeth Olsen.
  • Andalusia, Alabama, where Hank Williams marries Audrey at the beginning of the film, is 35 miles south of Georgiana, Alabama, Williams’ boyhood hometown.
  • Release & Reception

    The film was originally scheduled to be released on November 27, 2015, by Sony Pictures Classics. However, on October 16, the release date was pushed back to March 25, 2016.

    I Saw the Light received mixed to negative reviews from critics. On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has a 20% score based on 131 reviews, with an average rating of 4.6/10. The site’s consensus states: “I Saw the Light boasts a terrifically talented cast, but their performances aren’t enough to enliven an unfocused biopic that never comes close to capturing its subject’s timeless appeal.” Metacritic reports a 47 out of 100 rating based on 35 critics, indicating “mixed or average reviews”.

    Ignatiy Vishnevetsky of The A.V. Club criticized I Saw the Light for not having “a spark of insight or psychology to it,” and stated “no character in the film ever comes across as more than an accent.” Peter Travers of Rolling Stone gave the film one of four stars, stating “Not even a singin’, boozin’ Tom Hiddleston can save this tepid Hank Williams biopic from itself.”

    This sequel to the smash-hit comic-book epic The Avengers finds the iconic superhero team dealing with a threat of their own making: a sentient robot called Ultron (voice of James Spader), who was originally designed as part of a peacekeeping program. Since the events of the last film, Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) have been working to take down various cells of a secret society of villains known as HYDRA. Their zeal to make the world a better, safer place inspires Tony Stark, genius billionaire and alter ego of Iron Man, to create Ultron in order to respond to additional threats that the Avengers aren’t able to handle. Ultron, unfortunately, takes this directive way too seriously — he believes that world peace can only be achieved by exterminating humanity, and he’ll stop at nothing to accomplish this goal. The battle between the Avengers and Ultron is further complicated by the appearance of super-powered siblings Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), who ally themselves with the homicidal android.

    Production Notes

    In October 2011, Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios said the studio was beginning to look at their Phase Two films, which would start with Iron Man 3 and would culminate in a second Avengers film. In March 2012, Joss Whedon, director of the first film, stated that he would want a sequel to be “smaller. More personal. More painful. By being the next thing that should happen to these characters, and not just a rehash of what seemed to work the first time. By having a theme that is completely fresh and organic to itself.” Despite the production of the film becoming increasingly wider in scope, Feige maintained that this was not their intention, always looking to see where the team wanted to take the characters, over how to make it bigger than The Avengers.

    At the premiere of The Avengers, Feige said the studio had an option for Whedon to return as director. In May 2012, after the successful release of the first film, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced a sequel was in development. Most of the film’s cast members were under contract to potentially appear in the sequel; however, Robert Downey Jr. was not, as his four-picture deal with Marvel expired after Iron Man 3.

    At the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con International, Whedon said he was undecided about directing. However, in August 2012, Iger announced that Whedon would return to write and direct the sequel and develop the Marvel television series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., for ABC. Later in the month, Disney set a May 1, 2015, release date. When asked about his decision to return, Whedon said, “Avengers 2, it wasn’t a tough decision. For a long time I thought, ‘Well, it’s just not going to happen.’ Then when I actually started to consider it, it became so clear that I desperately wanted to say more about these characters, it would’ve been an easy no and it was a spectacularly easy yes. There was no wrestling.” Whedon said that they intended for the film’s production to not be as rushed as the first one.

    In December 2012, Whedon stated that he had completed an outline for the film. In February, at the 2013 Jameson Dublin International Film Festival, Whedon said that death would play a theme in the sequel, and in March, he said that he looked to The Empire Strikes Back and The Godfather Part II as inspirations.

    Feige revealed that Captain Marvel, who starred in her own MCU film in 2019, appeared in an early draft of the screenplay, but was removed since the character had not yet been cast, saying, “It didn’t feel like the time. We didn’t want to introduce her fully formed flying in a costume before you knew who she was or how she came to be.” Whedon went so far as to shoot visual effects plates for Captain Marvel to fly into Avengers Headquarters at the end of the film; those shots were reused, however, for Scarlet Witch instead. Feige also revealed that an early draft of the script had Hulk’s Quinjet detected near Saturn at the end of the film, but it was finally decided to keep it Earth-based and leave his fate ambiguous in order to dispel rumors that a film based on the “Planet Hulk” comic storyline was in development, which Marvel Studios had no plans to adapt at the time. Marvel would later decide to adapt “Planet Hulk” for the film Thor: Ragnarok, in which the Hulk does end up leaving Earth.

    By April 2013, filming was scheduled to begin in early 2014 at Shepperton Studios in England. At the Hollywood premiere of Iron Man 3, Whedon said that he had completed a draft of the script, started the storyboard process, and met with actors. Whedon also mentioned that he wrote with Downey in mind and included a “brother/sister act” from the comic books, later confirming that he was referring to Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. Whedon explained his rationale for including the characters in the film saying, “their powers are very visually interesting. One of the problems I had on the first one was everybody basically had punchy powers … [Quicksilver]’s got super speed. [Scarlet Witch] can weave spells and a little telekinesis, get inside your head. There’s good stuff that they can do that will help sort of keep it fresh,” though cautioned he was not throwing in more characters for the sake of doing that. Whedon stated that the twins allowed him to add more conflict: “They don’t like America, and they don’t like the Avengers… The Avengers are like a world power, and not everybody’s on board with the Avengers coming in and starting fights, even in the name of justice. So you need that dissenting voice, and you need to understand it and sympathize with it.” Because Marvel Studios shared the film rights to Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch with 20th Century Fox and had to avoid conflict with Fox’s X-Men films, Whedon introduced two important characters into the Marvel Cinematic Universe completely on his terms for the first time, which allowed him to connect their origin stories to the universe that they created and avoid the concept of mutants. Whedon relished at the storytelling opportunities by introducing a character with telepathic powers, explaining, “it meant we could spend a little time inside the Avengers’ heads—either their past or their impressions of what’s going on, or their fears, or all of the above.

    Casting continued into August 2013, with the announcement that James Spader would play Ultron. In November, Marvel confirmed that Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson would play the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, respectively. Taylor-Johnson had been in negotiations since as early as June, while Olsen’s potential involvement was first reported in August. By the end of the year, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Cobie Smulders were confirmed to be returning to their roles from the first film, and Don Cheadle, who portrayed James Rhodes in the Iron Man films, had committed to a part in the film. In the early months of 2014, Thomas Kretschmann was cast as Baron Wolfgang von Strucker, Claudia Kim was cast in an unspecified role, and Paul Bettany, who voiced J.A.R.V.I.S. in previous MCU films, was cast as the Vision. Whedon said “juggling” all the characters in the film was “a nightmare” explaining, “They’re very disparate characters. The joy of the Avengers is they really don’t belong in the same room. It’s not like the X-Men, who are all tortured by the same thing and have similar costumes. These guys are just all over the place. And so it’s tough. Honestly, this is as tough as anything I’ve ever done.”

    In June 2014, the IMAX Corporation announced that the IMAX release of the film would be converted to IMAX 3D. Following the completion of principal photography several more cast members were revealed including Stellan Skarsgård, Anthony Mackie, Idris Elba, and Tom Hiddleston, reprising their roles from previous MCU films. However, Hiddleston’s scenes did not make the theatrical cut of the film, with Whedon saying what was shot “didn’t play” and he did not want the film to feel “overstuffed”. According to Hiddleston, “In test screenings, audiences had overemphasized Loki’s role, so they thought that because I was in it, I was controlling Ultron, and it was actually imbalancing people’s expectations.” Whedon later explained that Elba and Atwell appear in the film because of exploring the psyches of the Avengers from Scarlet Witch’s power. In December 2014, Kim’s role was revealed as Dr. Helen Cho. Additional scenes were scheduled to be filmed in January 2015 at Pinewood Studios. In February 2015, Marvel confirmed through promotional material that Serkis portrays Ulysses Klaue in the film. In early April 2015, Linda Cardellini and Julie Delpy were confirmed to be part of the film’s cast. At the same time, Whedon stated that the film would not contain a post-credits scene, which had become customary for MCU films. Whedon tried to come up with a post-credit scene but felt that he could not top the “Shawarma scene” in The Avengers, explaining, “It didn’t seem to lend itself in the same way, and we wanted to be true to what felt right. The first rule of making a sequel is take the best moments and do something else. Don’t do the Indiana Jones gun trick again differently. Just go somewhere else. Don’t try to hit the same highs, because people will sense it.” However, Feige clarified, “There will be a tag [shortly after the credits start]. But there’s not a post–post–credit scene.”

    In May 2015, Whedon revealed he was in conflict with Marvel executives and the film’s editors about certain scenes in the film. The executives were not “thrilled” with the scenes at Hawkeye’s farm or the dream sequences the Avengers experience because of Scarlet Witch. Also, Whedon had originally shot a much longer scene with Thor and Selvig in the cave but the final version is shorter as test audiences did not respond well to the original cut. In the scene, Thor would be possessed by a Norn, a goddess of destiny, while Selvig would quiz her about Thor’s hallucination. Additionally, Whedon reiterated he had wanted to include Captain Marvel and Spider-Man at the end, but deals for each character (signing of an actress and a deal with Sony Pictures Entertainment, respectively) were not completed in time for their inclusion.

    Method Studios created the interior of the new Avengers training facility by digitally designing the training facility, extracting the characters from the original set and placing them into the new CG environment. Method also contributed to Iron Man’s new Mark 45 suit and played a key role in creating Scarlet Witch’s CG mind control effect. Following the trend in recent years, most of the computer screens in Stark’s lab, Dr Cho’s laboratory, the Quinjet and other locations in the film were not added in post-production but were actually working screens on set, adding to the realism of the film and saving some on the post-production budget. London-based Territory Studio delivered the screen visuals filled with unique imagery and animations that matched the character using them. Perception worked on the main-on-end and main titles for the film. Before settling on the marble monument depiction for the main-on-end titles, Perception created three other versions, which were based on Ultron’s hive mind ability from the film, “renderings of power and pure energy” inspired by classic comic panels, and classic moments for each character. The final design was inspired by war monuments such as the Iwo Jima memorial. For the main titles, Marvel wanted the typeface to be a direct continuation of the first film. Perception made the typeface a marble texture to mimic the main-on-end titles and changed the title’s rotation (away from the camera instead of towards the camera in The Avengers), before “Age of Ultron” overtakes “Avengers” in a vibranium texture.

    Trivia

  • Because Ultron was eight to nine feet tall, the five-foot ten-inch James Spader had to wear an antenna-like contraption made out of a thick piece of wire, with two red balls attached to the top that went up his entire back and three feet above his head. This was done so that the cast members that shared scenes with him would have a reference point for where his eyes would be. The two red balls represented the placement of Ultron’s eyes. Elizabeth Olsen stated that this was actually distracting, because Spader would be giving an intense performance and out of instinct, she would look at him rather than the balls representing his eyes. Much to everyone’s amusement, whenever this happened, Aaron Taylor-Johnson would yell “Red balls! Look at his balls, Lizzie!” at her in order to get her to look in the right direction.
  • It took Joss Whedon a year to convince Aaron Taylor-Johnson to accept the role of Quicksilver. Johnson was concerned over the intensity of the Marvel contracts, the time constraints, and the fact that it was going to be such a large cast. Even after he accepted the role, he was still nervous, but was comforted after he learned that his friend, and Godzilla (2014) co-star, Elizabeth Olsen, would be playing his sister, and would be his filming partner throughout most of the movie.
  • Joss Whedon has said that he wanted Spider-Man and Captain Marvel to appear in the final sequence, but they were unable to include them in the movie due to timing and rights issues.
  • Joss Whedon cast Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch because he thought their powers would be cool to use in a film: “Their powers are very visually interesting. One of the problems I had on the first one was everybody basically had punchy powers. Quicksilver’s got super-speed, Scarlet Witch can weave spells, and a little telekinesis, get inside your head. That’s good stuff they can do, that will help keep it fresh.”
  • James Spader was originally just going to be Ultron’s voice, but he told the filmmakers that for a main character, he deserved to do more than provide a voice, and so he took on performing Ultron through motion-capture.
  • “Marvel Ultimates” comic is famous for featuring a controversial incestuous storyline between Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. According to Elizabeth Olsen, while this particular aspect would not be overtly present in the film, she and Aaron Taylor-Johnson “played around” with certain parts of it: “Every time you see an image of them, they’re always holding each other’s hand and looking over each other’s shoulder. They’re always so close, it’s almost uncomfortable. Aaron and I have been playing a little bit with those kinds of images just for ourselves.”
  • Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson consulted each other before accepting the roles of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. The two became friends while filming Godzilla (2014), and as soon as they found out that both had offers, they called each other to check if the other was doing it before signing on.
  • Character screentimes: Captain America = 50:25 Iron Man = 45:34 Black Widow = 33:07 Quicksilver = 26:43 Bruce Banner/The Incredible Hulk = 23:55 Scarlet Witch = 20:59 Hawkeye = 19:56 Thor = 14:18 The Vision = 8:41
  • Joss Whedon described this film as “Smaller. More personal. More painful. The next thing that should happen to these characters, and not just a rehash of what worked the first time. A theme that is completely fresh and organic to itself.”
  • Elizabeth Olsen worked with a dance choreographer to make her movements more graceful for action sequences.
  • In the comics, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are born mutants. In this movie, they got their powers due to experimentation of H.Y.D.R.A. on them. This change has to do with the fact that Twentieth Century Fox holds the rights to the X-Men film franchise and the whole mutant concept. Therefore, this change was intended to disassociate the film from the X-Men film franchise to avoid legal issues.
  • Elizabeth Olsen described the Scarlet Witch as unstable: “She has such a vast amount of knowledge, that she’s unable to learn how to control it. No one taught her how to control it properly, so it gets the best of her. It’s not that she’s mentally insane, it’s just that she’s just overly-stimulated, and she can connect to this world, and parallel worlds, at the same time.”
  • Elizabeth Olsen stated in an interview that she is happy that her character’s outfit is not accurate to the comic book, as it would be inappropriate for combat.
  • Neither Quicksilver, nor Scarlet Witch, are called by their superhero names in this movie. They are referred to as “the Enhanced”, “the Twins”, or their full names Pietro and Wanda Maximoff. However, Tony Stark calls Wanda a “witch” during his fight with The Incredible Hulk.
  • Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen worked back-to-back, first playing husband and wife in Godzilla (2014), and now brother and sister in this film.
  • [at around 49 mins] When Scarlet Witch tries to mind control Hawkeye, he neutralizes her and quips “I tried the mind control thing. Not a fan!” This is a reference to Jeremy Renner being openly displeased with his character being mind controlled by Loki during most of The Avengers (2012).
  • Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) wears a new costume at the end of this movie, which was based on her “Uncanny Avengers” uniform (a low-cut blouse and pants, with a coat on top).
  • Saoirse Ronan was considered to play Wanda Maximoff (Scarlet Witch).
  • Release & Reception

    Avengers: Age of Ultron made its world premiere at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on April 13, 2015, and held its European premiere on April 21 at the Vue West End in London. The film was released in 11 territories on April 22, with its release jumping to 55% of its international market (44 countries) by the end of its first weekend, before releasing on May 1 in the United States, in 3D and IMAX 3D. In the United States, the film opened in 4,276 theaters, including 2,761 3D theaters, 364 IMAX, 400 premium large format, and 143 D-Box theaters. Many independent theater owners in Germany (approximately 700 screens) boycotted the film in response to Disney raising its rental fee from 47.7% to 53% of ticket sales. The owners felt that the “increased fees, coupled with the cost of digitization, and rising staff and marketing costs may force some of them out of business.” Avengers: Age of Ultron is part of Phase Two of the MCU.

    The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported a 75% approval rating with an average score of 6.75/10, based on 360 reviews. The website’s critical consensus reads, “Exuberant and eye-popping, Avengers: Age of Ultron serves as an overstuffed but mostly satisfying sequel, reuniting its predecessor’s unwieldy cast with a few new additions and a worthy foe.” On Metacritic, the film achieved an average score of 66 out of 100, based on 49 critics, signifying “generally favorable reviews”. CinemaScore reported that audiences gave the film an “A” grade on an A+ to F scale, while PostTrak reported filmgoers gave it an overall positive score of 90% and a 79% recommend.

    Todd McCarthy of The Hollywood Reporter said, “Avengers: Age of Ultron succeeds in the top priority of creating a worthy opponent for its superheroes and giving the latter a few new things to do, but this time the action scenes don’t always measure up.” Scott Foundas of Variety wrote, “If this is what the apotheosis of branded, big-studio entertainment has come to look like in 2015, we could be doing much worse. Unlike its title character, Age of Ultron most definitely has soul.” Writing for the Chicago Sun-Times and giving the film three-and-a-half out of four stars, Richard Roeper said, “Some day, an Avengers film might collapse under the weight of its own awesomeness. I mean, how many times can they save the world? But this is not that day.” Peter Travers of Rolling Stone wrote, “Age of Ultron is a whole summer of fireworks packed into one movie. It doesn’t just go to 11, it starts there. [Joss Whedon] takes a few wrong turns, creating a jumble when the action gets too thick. But he recovers like a pro, devising a spectacle that’s epic in every sense of the word.” Matt Zoller Seitz of RogerEbert.com gave the film three out of four stars, stating that despite being “bigger, louder and more disjointed” than its predecessor, “it’s also got more personality—specifically Whedon’s—than any other film in the now seven-year-old franchise.” Helen O’Hara of Empire praised the interactions between the characters, the action set-pieces and Whedon’s ability as a director in her review, stating that the film “redefines the scale we can expect from our superheroes.”

    Conversely, Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times said, “Although this movie is effective moment to moment, very little of it lingers in the mind afterward. The ideal vehicle for our age of immediate sensation and instant gratification, it disappears without a trace almost as soon as it’s consumed.” Scott Mendelson of Forbes said, “Avengers: Age of Ultron plays like an obligation, a box to be checked off on a list before all parties move onto the things they really want to do.” Manohla Dargis of The New York Times wrote, “This Avengers doesn’t always pop the way that the first one sometimes did, partly because its villain isn’t as memorable, despite Mr. Spader’s silky threat.” Camilla Long of The Sunday Times remarked, “Two hours of boredom and boobs add up to a sorry basis for the new Avengers.” Much like the release of Guardians of the Galaxy, the film received mixed reviews upon release in China, due to poor translations. The translations, which were said to be too literal, were thought “to have been done by Google Translate.”

    Production Notes

    On January 7, 2013, it was reported that Joseph Gordon-Levitt had turned down being cast in the film in the fall of 2012. It was reported that Henry Cavill, Scoot McNairy, and Caleb Landry Jones comprised the shortlist for lead of the film. On January 10, it was first reported that Legendary Pictures was interested in Aaron Taylor-Johnson for the lead role. It was reported that Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Olsen were also in talks to co-star. Olsen confirmed her involvement at the 2013 BAFTA awards. Juliette Binoche and David Strathairn were then signed on to join Taylor-Johnson, Cranston and Olsen in the film.

    In January 2013, Mary Parent joined the project as a producer for Disruption Entertainment, and producers Dan Lin, Roy Lee and Doug Davison were dismissed from the project. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the producers left over creative and financial differences with Legendary Pictures, and Legendary was buying out their producer contracts, a move which led to court. On January 9, Legendary Pictures filed a ‘Complaint for Declaratory Relief’ lawsuit against Lin, Lee and Davison in California State Court to spell out any fees owed to the individuals, who had signed an agreement with Legendary and were working with Legendary on the film’s development. According to the complaint, Legendary had decided in the fall of 2012 to not employ the three as producers on the film and the three were not eligible for any producer fees. The three filed a counter-claim, that the agreement cited by Legendary was not in force and that the original working agreement was breached by Legendary. The three argued that the suit should be decided in open court, not in arbitration, and that Legendary should be responsible for damages for breach of contract. At court, the judge dismissed the arbitration and ordered mediation followed by jury trial if necessary. Legendary appealed the decision and lost the appeal in March 2014, leaving the case in California Superior Court for trial. In June 2015, on the eve of the trial, the parties came to a settlement, terms of which were not disclosed.

    At the start of principal photography in March 2013, Legendary formally announced the cast and producers. Yoshimitsu Banno, Alex Garcia, Kenji Okuhira and Patricia Whitcher were formally named as executive producers and Legendary announced the addition of Ken Watanabe to the cast. After filming started, Richard T. Jones and Sally Hawkins were added. From the film set, a photograph of actor Akira Takarada (star of the original Godzilla, including five sequels) with Edwards was released. Takarada had publicly appealed to be part of the production and the photo indicates some sort of role for the Japanese actor in the reboot. In April 2014, Takarada said in an interview that his role was cut from the final version of the film. He had the role of an immigration officer. Edwards later admitted regretting cutting out Takarada’s cameo.

    Trivia

  • The Sound Designers used a twelve-foot high, eighteen-foot wide speaker array to blast Godzilla’s roar at one hundred thousand watts, to get a good idea of his vocal power and strength.
  • The United States Marine Corps declined to participate after reviewing the script. The United States Navy cooperated with production.
  • The film contains 960 visual effects shots. The 3-D model of Godzilla, made up of 500,000 polygons, appears in 327 shots. Had the graphics been rendered on a single computer, it would have taken 450 years to render.
  • Toho Studios provided Sound Designer Erik Aadahl with the original 1954 recording of Godzilla’s roar. He upgraded the roar to a more organic, contemporary sound.
  • According to Gareth Edwards, Godzilla’s design is inspired by bears and Komodo dragons. In particular, his face is influenced by the heads of bears, dogs, and eagles. Edwards said the eagle “has a lot of nobility. It made him feel very majestic and noble.”
  • Despite being the title character, Godzilla appears in the film after nearly one hour, and is only in the film for eleven minutes.
  • Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen play husband and wife. They play brother and sister in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015).
  • Juliette Binoche, Bryan Cranston, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson were all Gareth Edwards’s first choice for their respective roles. According to Hawkins, “He comes from the performance first, rather than how it looks. I never expected I would be cast in a film like this – and that’s all thanks to Gareth. His cast is really unusual and interesting, and people you wouldn’t normally see in this type of film, and I hope it makes for a different type of monster film.”
  • Release & Reception

    Godzilla received generally positive reviews from critics. On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 76% based on 319 reviews, with an average rating of 6.65/10. The site’s critical consensus states, “With just enough human drama to anchor the sweeping spectacle of giant monsters smashing everything in sight, Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla satisfyingly restores the franchise’s fire-breathing glory.” On Metacritic, which assigns a weighted average based on selected reviews, the film has a score of 62 out of 100, based on 48 critics, indicating “generally favorable reviews”. CinemaScore reported that audiences gave the film an average grade of “B+” on an A+ to F scale.

    Alex Pappademas of Grantland called the film “the first truly joyous popcorn action movie of the season” and praised Edwards’ restrained direction, stating, “I admired Edwards’s restraint, a quality I’m not accustomed to admiring in $160 million summer action movies.” Richard Roeper stated, “Edwards and his team produce consistently stunning visuals”, but admitted that he “would have liked to see more of Godzilla” but stated that the film is “leaps and bounds ahead of the 1998 bomb” and awarded the film a B+ rating.

    Tom Russo of the Boston Globe felt the film “is an uneven spectacle that can’t sustain its solid first-half character moments” but did state the film “can also flash a surprising, often clever sense of legacy, and is intermittently capable of thrilling us” and praised the film’s special effects, stating, “Crafted with motion-capture technology and an aesthetic eye toward tradition, Godzilla is convincingly rendered here, making for some genuinely electrifying moments” but did feel that the third act’s battle was “overkill” and that the principal characters were lackluster, stating the film “needs performances that ground it — and they’re just not coming from Taylor-Johnson, Watanabe, and the rest of the thespian soldiers and flabbergasted biologists who dominate the second hour” and concluded by stating, “Godzilla, Watanabe breathlessly hypothesizes, ‘is here to restore balance.’ The film could do with a little of that itself, thrills notwithstanding.”

    Stephanie Zacharek of the Village Voice stated “Gareth Edwards’s new desecration of his (Godzilla) legend should make him (Godzilla) want to eat Hollywood for lunch”, feeling that the film “hits all the wrong beats” but did praise Juliette Binoche and Bryan Cranston’s performances, stating, “Their few brief scenes, particularly Cranston’s, make for the best dramatic moments in the movie” and also praised Alexandre Desplat’s score and the scenes involving Godzilla but stated “it’s just one tiny beat in an otherwise way-too-big movie that, weirdly, doesn’t give us enough of the one big guy we showed up to see in the first place” and concluded by stating, “Godzilla is one of those generic, omnipresent blockbusters that’s undone by the very spectacle it strives to dazzle us with: Everything is so gargantuan, so momentous, that nothing has any weight.”

    A. O. Scott of the New York Times stated the film “is at once bloated and efficient, executed with tremendous discipline and intelligence and conceived with not too much of either” and found that “it surpasses Roland Emmerich’s 1998 Hollywood version” and praised the film’s aftermath destruction scenes, stating, “the vistas of trampled cityscapes are frequently more memorable and always more haunting than the chaotic scenes of smashing and flooding that clutter the film’s climax” but felt the characterization was “thin” and the performances were “squandered” but felt that the “soul” of the film “dwells with the monsters”. Matt Zoller Seitz highly praised the film’s direction and craftsmanship, giving it three and a half out of four stars and stating that “Godzilla represents some sort of high water mark (pun intended) in Hollywood’s nearly forty year crusade to turn once-disreputable genre films into pop art that demands our contemplation, if only because of the wit and skill that its army of technicians lavished on each frame. The long shots of kaiju grappling in ruined cities are gloomily magnificent, like oil paintings of Biblical miracles.”

    Michael Phillips of the Chicago Tribune awarded the film three and a half stars, finding that the film “makes up” for the 1998 version and praised Edwards, stating, “The director thinks visually, which sounds redundant until you realize how many monster movies are flat, effects-dependent factory jobs. Edwards knows how to use great heights for great effect.” Phillips also praised the film’s build-up, stating, “director Gareth Edwards lays the expository groundwork nicely and hands the audience what it craves in the second half” and defended the amount of screen-time Godzilla received, stating, “Is there enough Godzilla in Godzilla? Folks, there is. There is just enough.” David Blaustein of ABC News Radio called the film “very good, but not great”, criticizing the film for not having enough screen-time for Godzilla, stating, “There’s not enough Godzilla. When the monster’s away, the movie drags. It’s clear what Edwards and company are trying to do here. i.e. less is more. The issue is, this Godzilla is so much fun to watch, we never want it leave the screen and when he/she/it’s not there, it’s a letdown.” Regardless, Blaustein stated that the film’s finale, “more or less, makes it all worth the wait”, and awarded the film three-and-a-half stars out of five.

    Matt Zoller Seitz, in his positive review of the film, observed how “[i]t’s less interested in a giant monster’s rampage than in what it might feel like to be a tiny human watching it close up, or far away, or on TV. It is not about Godzilla or the beasts he fights …. it’s a combination epic horror film and parable of nature in revolt, filled with odd ellipses and surprising but appropriate storytelling choices, such as an early monster duel that plays out mainly on CNN.” In regards to the film’s shallow characters, “the film is inclined to see them as representatives of an endangered species rather than complex individuals”. He also noted in the film “a touch of Terrence Malick’s Transcendentalist humility in how the director lavishes attention on meadows and forests and rolling waves”, with the film’s final shot evoking The Thin Red Line (1998).

    Japanese critics and journalists have praised the film for putting “more of an effort to honor the spirit and visual style of the Japanese series” but criticized the film for “complicating the anti-war, anti-nuclear sensibility” and “lack of nerve on the part of the filmmakers to say anything substantial about nuclear weapons or nuclear energy”. However, Godzilla illustrator Yuji Kaida called the film “a real kaijū eiga (monster movie) that honored the original in that Godzilla was presented as a force beyond human understanding that maintained the Earth’s natural balance”.

    Trivia

  • Unlike other films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this movie minimized the use of visual effects as much as possible. Anthony Mackie elaborated: “The Russos, what they did that was so great was, they wanted to stay with live-action, which is a dying art form. If they could build it, they built it. If we could do it, we did it. They wanted to do as little CGI as possible. That’s why the movie looks so great.”
  • While writing the script, there was a big possibility of Hawkeye being in the film. However, the writers felt that there were too many characters introduced, and they didn’t want Hawkeye to be there without any depth. They instead decided to write a small scene in which Hawkeye and his whereabouts are mentioned, which was shot, but ultimately wasn’t included in the film.
  • Kevin Feige selected Joe Russo and Anthony Russo to direct the film on the basis of their two back-to-back episodes of Community (2009) that they’ve directed, with which Feige was impressed: season two, episode twenty-three, “A Fistful of Paintballs” and season two, episode twenty-four, “For a Few Paintballs More”.
  • Prior to the release of this film, there was some doubt that this sequel would have much appeal outside of the United States considering the character’s obvious American imagery. However, the film proved to be a major international success upon release.
  • Anna Kendrick, Felicity Jones, Imogen Poots, Teresa Palmer, Alison Brie, Emilia Clarke, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Elizabeth Olsen, and Jessica Brown Findlay were considered to play Sharon Carter. Although the role ultimately went to Emily VanCamp, Olsen appears as Wanda Maximoff a.k.a. Scarlet Witch in a mid-credits scene.
  • Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen appear as Quicksilver and The Scarlet Witch, respectively, in a mid-credits scene, which sets the stage for Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
  • Release & Reception

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier was released in 32 markets on March 26, 2014 and in North America on April 4, 2014, in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D. The film debuted on 668 IMAX screens worldwide, a record for films releasing in April. The world premiere took place on March 13, 2014 at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, California. The Paris premiere occurred on March 17 at Le Grand Rex, the London premiere took place on March 20 at Westfield London, the Beijing premiere took place on March 24 and the Cleveland premiere took place on April 1. Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson auctioned off passes to one of the premieres for charity. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is part of Phase Two of the MCU.

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier earned $259.8 million in North America and $454.5 million in other territories for a worldwide total of $714.3 million. It became the fifth-highest-grossing film of 2014 worldwide. Deadline Hollywood calculated the net profit for the film to be $166.2 million, when factoring together “production budgets, P&A, talent participations and other costs, with box office grosses, and ancillary revenues from VOD to DVD and TV,” placing it ninth on their list of 2014’s “Most Valuable Blockbusters”.

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier made $10.2 million in Thursday night showings, more than double the midnight gross of its predecessor. It set an April single-day ($36.9 million) and April opening-weekend record ($95.0 million), while its opening weekend was a 46% increase over its predecessor. The film held the number one spot at the box office for three consecutive weekends, before being overtaken by The Other Woman in its fourth weekend. It achieved the largest total gross among films released in the month of April. At the end of its theatrical run, the film became the fourth highest-grossing film of 2014 behind American SniperThe Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, and Guardians of the Galaxy.

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier topped the box office on its opening weekend with $75.2 million from 32 overseas markets. The film debuted at number one in many territories, including Australia, China, and Russia and set a 3-day opening-weekend record in China among Disney films, with $38.81 million. It topped the box office outside North America on two consecutive weekends, followed by two weeks in second, behind Rio 2.

    The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported a 90% approval rating with an average score of 7.62/10, based on 295 reviews. The website’s critics consensus reads, “Suspenseful and politically astute, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a superior entry in the Avengers canon and is sure to thrill Marvel diehards.” Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned a score of 70 out of 100 based on 48 critics, indicating “generally favorable reviews”. CinemaScore audiences gave Captain America: The Winter Soldier an “A” grade rating on an A+ to F scale.

    Todd McCarthy of The Hollywood Reporter said the film “takes the bold (for Marvel) step of reducing CGI spectacle to a relative minimum in favor of reviving the pleasures of hard-driving old-school action, surprising character development and intriguing suspense.” Scott Foundas of Variety said it is “chockfull of the breathless cliffhangers dictated by the genre, but equally rich in the quiet, tender character moments that made the first film unique among recent Marvel fare.” Richard Roeper of the Chicago Sun-Times considered it “another rock-solid chapter in the big-screen story of Marvel,” though he compared it unfavorably to The Avengers, Iron Man and Iron Man 3. Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly noted the topicality of the film, and compared it to The Dark Knight (2008). Ty Burr of The Boston Globe said the film “delivers all the 3D CGI mayhem audiences have come to expect from the Marvel entertainment juggernaut, but there’s darkness and confusion just under its comic-book surface.” Joe Morgenstern of The Wall Street Journal praised the film’s “emotional bandwidth” and nuances, and felt it fixed all the shortcomings of The First Avenger “and then some”.

    Conversely, Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times characterized the film with a lack of inspiration. Manohla Dargis of The New York Times said, “Like many others of its type, [Captain America: The Winter Soldier] gets off to a kinetic start only to lose steam before blowing everything up.” Robbie Collin of The Daily Telegraph expressed disappointment with the lack of risks taken by the film compared to its “relatively spicy premise”. Mick LaSalle of the San Francisco Chronicle felt the film was too long, with unexciting and illegible action scenes. Joe Williams of the St. Louis Post Dispatch felt The Winter Soldier didn’t explore the issues it raised and paled in comparison to The First Avenger. Jake Coyle of the Associated Press said the film’s biggest misstep was the handling of Stan’s Winter Soldier, and that it was “getting difficult to tell the Marvel movies apart”.

    Several critics have drawn comparisons between The Winter Soldier and the Metal Gear Solid video game series. Gameranx compared the film to Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (2001), stating that the first half of The Winter Soldier “feels like probably the closest movie adaptation we’ve gotten to Metal Gear Solid 2”, with similar elements including the “stealth, an evil group, CQC, and even the moral dilemma about sacrificing one’s personal liberties for the feeling of security.” Entertainment Weekly noted that the film’s opening tanker mission was “rendered as a Metal Gear Solid stealth mission”. Eye For Film also said the opening sequence “will no doubt be familiar to anyone who’s ever played Metal Gear Solid 2”.

    Production Notes

    An American remake of Oldboy previously had director Justin Lin attached. In November 2008, DreamWorks and Universal were securing the rights to the remake, which Will Smith had expressed interest in starring, with Steven Spielberg as director. Mark Protosevich was in talks to write the script, although the acquisition to the remake rights were not finalized. Smith later clarified that Spielberg would not be remaking the film: he would be adapting the manga itself, which is considerably different from the film. In June 2009, the comic’s publisher launched a lawsuit against the Korean film’s producers for giving the film rights to Spielberg without their permission. Later in November 2009, it was reported that DreamWorks, Spielberg and Smith had stepped back from the project. The producing team announced on 10 November 2009 that the project was dead.

    On July 11, 2011, Mandate Pictures sent a press release stating that Spike Lee would direct a remake of the South Korean film (ignoring the earlier version’s adaptation of the manga) with a screenplay written by Protosevich. Josh Brolin was cast to star in the remake as the lead character, while Christian Bale was reportedly in talks to portray the antagonist character, but it was later reported that Colin Firth had been offered the role. Firth later passed on the role, which was later offered to Clive Owen. In May 2012, Deadline reported that Sharlto Copley had officially been cast as the villain Adrian Pryce. Elizabeth Olsen, Samuel L. Jackson and Nate Parker were all later announced to have joined the cast. Parker was later replaced by James Ransone, due to a scheduling conflict. The film marked Jackson’s first time working with director Lee since 1991’s Jungle Fever.

    Principal photography began in October 2012.

    Spike Lee’s version was 140 minutes long, but the producers heavily re-edited the film to 105 minutes (re-edits by producers also included the “one-shot hammer” scene); Lee and Josh Brolin were unhappy with it. Lee even removed his trademark “A Spike Lee Joint” credit for a more impersonal “A Spike Lee Film” during the editing process. Brolin has also said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times that he prefers Lee’s version of the film, though it is not clear if this cut will ever be released.

    Trivia

    • Elizabeth Olsen did not know the ending of the film until she watched it for the first time at the New York City premiere. “I’ve never been more shocked and surprised by an ending since maybe like The Sixth Sense (1999),” Olsen said. “No one spoiled it for me. No one hinted at it for me. And I got to experience it with just a blank canvas.”
    • The hallway fight scene was done in one take, but it was edited for the final cut.
    • At one point, Joe (Josh Brolin) looks at an octopus swimming in a tank at a restaurant and walks away, a nod to the infamous octopus scene from Oldboy (2003).
    • The yellow umbrella that the girl (Haeng-Bok) carries features four five-bar gates, signifying the twenty years that Joe was imprisoned.
    • Elizabeth Olsen’s character has an octopus tattoo on her right arm, another nod to the infamous octopus scene in Oldboy (2003).
    • Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Samuel L. Jackson, and Pom Klementieff have all appeared in various movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
    • This movie is the second live-action adaptation of the Japanese manga, after Oldboy (2003).
    • Elizabeth Olsen discussed her attitude about nudity and the sex scene with Josh Brolin in a 2013 interview. She said she has no problem being nude on camera because she only chooses to disrobe for roles which make her feel empowered. However, Olsen insists there is never anything sexy about the scenes she gets naked for. She told the New York Daily News, “I truly believe in the films I’ve chosen to be nude (in). It helps tell a more grotesque story. There’s nothing gratuitous about it, and it creates the opposite of pleasure. I find it empowering.” Olsen recently told WENN she really felt for her Oldboy co-star Brolin during their sex scenes, because she is just five years older than his daughter, Eden. She said, “It was probably weirder for him than for me because he has a daughter my age, so I’m sure that was weird for both of them.”

    Release & Reception

    On Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds an approval rating of 40% based on 149 reviews, with an average rating of 5.1/10. The website’s critical consensus reads, “Suitably grim and bloody yet disappointingly safe and shallow, Spike Lee’s Oldboy remake neither surpasses the original nor adds anything new to its impressive legacy.” On Metacritic, the film has a weighted average score of 49 out of 100, based on 41 critics, indicating “mixed or average reviews”.

    Matt Zoller Seitz of RogerEbert.com gives three of four stars, saying: “Because the Internet moves with the speed and ferocity of a hornet swarm, there’s a chance that by the time you read this, Spike Lee’s American remake of Oldboy will already have been stung to death. If so, too bad. This American version of Park Chan-Wook’s Korean thriller is Lee’s most exciting movie since Inside Man—not a masterpiece by any stretch, but a lively commercial genre picture with a hypnotic, obsessive quality, and an utter indifference to being liked, much less approved of.”

    Justin Chang of Variety said that “Lee and Protosevich have made a picture that, although several shades edgier than the average Hollywood thriller, feels content to shadow its predecessor’s every move while falling short of its unhinged, balls-out delirium.” Michael Phillips of The Chicago Tribune, in a one and a half star review noted that “The revenge in Oldboy is neither sweet nor sour; it’s just drab”.

    Eric Kohn, in a largely positive review at Indiewire said: “It’s been so long since Lee made such a thoroughly amusing work that fans should have no problem excusing its messiness. But make no mistake… Oldboy is all over the place, sometimes playing like a subdued melodrama and elsewhere erupting into flamboyance and gore.”

  • Release & Reception

    In Secret received mixed reviews. On review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds a 40% rating, with an average score of 5.5/10, based on reviews from 87 critics. The consensus states: “Although it benefits from a strong cast, In Secret’s stars can’t totally compensate for the movie’s sodden pacing and overly familiar story.”

    Despite mixed reviews, Lange’s performance has received critical acclaim. Avi Offer from NYC Movie Guru proclaimed Lange as “…one of the greatest actresses of our time, [who] delivers a mesmerizing, magnificent performance and sinks her teeth into her role quite smoothly.” David Lee Dallas from Slant Magazine called Lange’s character’s “latent severity dangerous and surprising.” Michael O’Sullivan from The Washington Post noted that “Subtlety may not be this film’s strong suit, but it certainly is Lange’s.” Dustin Putman of the Washington D.C. Area Film Critics Association felt Lange is “more achingly vulnerable than the figures she usually plays.” Jessica Herdon of Associated Press added that Lange “…going from agonized to helpless, so poignantly that your heart breaks for her.” Joshua Rothkopf from Time Out New York wrote: “…Jessica Lange, as rare as a unicorn these days, seizes on the role of a grieving mother with two taloned hands. If there are any tremors of shame to be felt here, they emanate from her.” Odie Henderson praises Lange on her ability to “…[find] the perfect line of lunacy to toe, which In Secret requires for her character’s arc…” Also, Emma Myers from Film Comment described her ability to “[maintain] a looming presence that shifts from despicable to sympathetic and back again.” USA Today described her work as her “…most fully dimensional performance.” Variety mentioned that Lange “…relishes what becomes the most dramatically potent role.”

    Release & Reception

    The film was released on June 6, 2014 through iTunes, Amazon Video, Vudu, and VOD. The film started a limited theatrical release in the United States on July 25, 2014.

    The film received negative reviews from critics. It has accumulated a 19% rotten rating on Rotten Tomatoes based on 36 reviews. The Hollywood Reporter described the film as “a limp directing debut” for Foner. The film’s outdated “counter-culture” sensibilities made it appear “frozen in time”. It found the characters unconvincing, criticizing the “artificiality” of the love interest who asks the lead character to “read a couple of lines of Sylvia Plath before their first kiss”. We Got This Covered called the film “insincere from bottom to top,” expressing disappointment that “its innate lousiness” deflated the dramatic efforts of its leads. Variety criticized the “really bad” drama, particularly the “vapid and cliched” screenplay. “This all-around misfire … may go directly to home formats.”

    In the early 1940s, Allen Ginsberg is an English major at Columbia University, only to learn more than he bargained for. Dissatisfied by the orthodox attitudes of the school, Allen finds himself drawn to iconoclastic colleagues like Lucien Carr, William S. Burroughs and Jack Kerouac. Together, this gang would explore bold new literary ideas that would challenge the sensibilities of their time as the future Beat Generation. However, for all their creativity, their very appetites and choices lead to more serious transgressions that would mark their lives forever.

    Cast & Characters

    Daniel Radcliffe (Allen Ginsberg), David Cross (Louis Ginsberg), Dane DeHaan (Lucien Carr), Ben Foster (William S. Burroughs), Michael C. Hall (David Kammerer), Jack Huston (Jack Kerouac), Jennifer Jason Leigh (Naomi Ginsberg), Elizabeth Olsen (Edie Parker), John Cullum (Professor Harrison Ross Steeves), David Rasche (Dean of Columbia University), Kyra Sedgwick (Marian Carr), Zach Appelman (Luke Detweiler).

    Production Notes

    Though the principal roles among the cast are men, Krokidas‘ ensemble boasts a sterling collection of actresses in supporting roles, including Elizabeth Olsen as Kerouac’s girlfriend Edie Parker, Jennifer Jason Leigh as Allen’s psychologically unstable mother Naomi Ginsberg, and Kyra Sedgwick as Marian Carr, Lucien Carr’s aristocratic and fiercely protective mother.

    Olsen found the social milieu of the film particularly fascinating. “It illuminates the whole relationship between society and politics, especially toward homosexuals,” she shares. “It’s important to have reminders of where our country was at this point. The only reason Lucien Carr didn‘t have to spend his entire life in jail was because he claimed that David was a homosexual, and Lucien supposedly wasn‘t… And the fact that it was actually called an ‘honor slaying’! That seems kind of insane, even for the 1940s. And in New York City, which we usually think of as the most progressive city in the history of our country.”

    In landing his pair of veteran actresses to play the key maternal roles, Krokidas well knows how lucky he got. “Kyra Sedgwick is truly fearless. And we needed someone who doesn‘t hold back to play Lucien Carr’s mother—after all, where did his personality come from? Marian Carr is a woman who went so far to protect her own son that she burned his admission papers to a mental hospital from a decade earlier. And Kyra can play that ferocity behind this Midwestern aristocratic façade.”

    Of his Naomi Ginsberg, Krokidas observes, “Obviously, Jennifer Jason Leigh has shown that she can portray characters who are emotionally ill in a very honest and beautiful fashion. She’s so brave about revealing her own vulnerability.”

    Trivia

    • In 2008, while performing the Broadway play Equus, Daniel Radcliffe auditioned and got the part of Allen Ginsberg. Radcliffe went on to film the last two Harry Potter movies, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (2011) and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011), and with him unavailable for filming, Chris Evans, Jesse Eisenberg, and Ben Whishaw were cast without Radcliffe. Shortly after, financing for the film fell through. When director John Krokidas started again with the film, he offered the role of Allen Ginsberg back to Radcliffe.
    • In this film, David Cross plays Allen Ginsberg’s father, Louis. In I’m Not There (2007), David Cross played Allen Ginsberg himself.
    • Actor Ezra Miller turned down the role of Lucien Carr, which was then given to Dane DeHaan.
    • Some library scenes were filmed at the New York Academy of Medicine.
    • First feature film directed by John Krokidas.

    Release & Reception

    Kill Your Darlings received an overall approval rating of 75% from critics at Rotten Tomatoes, based on 142 reviews with an average rating of 6.6/10. The website’s critical consensus reads, “Bolstered by the tremendous chemistry between Daniel Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan, Kill Your Darlings casts a vivid spotlight on an early chapter in the story of the Beat Generation.” On Metacritic, the film had an average score of 65 out of 100, based on 36 reviews, indicating “Generally Favorable” reviews. The film earned $1,030,064 in limited release.

    The Daily Telegraph granted the film a score of three out of five stars, stating that, “Unlike Walter Salles’s recent adaptation of On the Road, which embraced the Beat philosophy with a wide and credulous grin, Kill Your Darlings is inquisitive about the movement’s worth, and the genius of its characters is never assumed”. Reviewing Kill Your Darlings after its showing at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, critic Damon Wise of The Guardian lauded the film for being “the real deal, a genuine attempt to source the beginning of America’s first true literary counterculture of the 20th century”. Kill Your Darlings, wrote Wise, “creates a true sense of energy and passion, for once eschewing the clacking of typewriter keys to show artists actually talking, devising, and ultimately daring each other to create and innovate. And though it begins as a murder-mystery, Kill Your Darlings may be best described as an intellectual moral maze, a story perfectly of its time and yet one that still resonates today.” Wise awarded the film four out of five stars. Justin Chang of Variety wrote, “A mysterious Beat Generation footnote is fleshed out with skilled performances, darkly poetic visuals and a vivid rendering of 1940s academia in Kill Your Darlings. Directed with an assured sense of style that pushes against the narrow confines of its admittedly fascinating story, John Krokidas’ first feature feels adventurous yet somewhat hemmed-in as it imagines a vortex of jealousy, obsession and murder that engulfed Allen Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs and Jack Kerouac in the early days of their literary revolution.”

    Trivia

    • Filmed mostly at Josh Radnor’s alma mater Kenyon College, a small liberal arts school located in Gambier, Ohio. Allison Janney was a student there.
    • In the film’s opening scene Josh Radnor’s character is shown reading “God of Small Things”, whose plot also deals with the ‘laws of love’ – and what happens to those who break these rules – paralleling the characters of the film.
    • Although not mentioned by name, the fictional vampire book that sparks an argument between the two main characters is titled “Lunar Moon” and is not only based on “Twilight” but ts jacket cover is very similar to that of “Twilight” as well. Elizabeth Reaser, who plays Ana in this film, also plays Esme Cullen in the “Twilight” movies.
    • There was a story line with Michael Weston as Miles, a friend of Jesse’s who is trying to go to Spain but has several issues that keep him from going. All of his scenes were filmed but in the end not used in the movie. However, they are featured in the Bonus section of the DVD under Deleted Scenes.
    • The book discussed in the coffee shop is David Foster Wallace’s “The Infinite Jest.” Josh Radnor’s How I Met Your Mother (2005) co-star Jason Segel portrayed Wallace in the film The End of the Tour (2015).

    Release & Reception

    Liberal Arts received generally positive reviews and has a rating of 70% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 104 reviews with an average score of 6.6 out of 10. The consensus states: “While it’s hard not to wish it had a little more bite, Liberal Arts ultimately succeeds as a good-natured — and surprisingly clever — look at the addictive pull of nostalgia for our youth.” The film also has a score of 55 out of 100 on Metacritic based on 24 reviews, indicating “Mixed or average reviews”.

    Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film 3 and a half out of 4 stars and stated in his review:

    Liberal Arts is an almost unreasonable pleasure about a jaded New Yorker who returns to his alma mater in Ohio and finds that his heart would like to stay there. It’s the kind of film that appeals powerfully to me; to others, maybe not so much.
    There is a part of me that will forever want to be walking under autumn leaves, carrying a briefcase containing the works of Shakespeare and Yeats and a portable chess set. I will pass an old tree under which once on a summer night I lay on the grass with a fragrant young woman and we quoted e.e. cummings back and forth. There is a word to explain why this particular film so appealed to me. Reader, that word is “escapism.” If you understand why I used the word “reader” in just that way, you are possibly an ideal viewer for this movie.”

    Production Notes

    Cortés spent a year and a half researching and writing the screenplay, studying both sides of the psychic powers issue offered by skeptics and believers. He came to the conclusion that some on each side exclude evidence that does not support their position. He further stated that he does not intend Red Lights to represent his own position on the subject, as it is just an entertainment movie; however, he personally does not believe in the supernatural (ghosts, demons, etc.) because, in his view, nothing can exceed natural laws, but the paranormal (psychic powers, etc.), which he differentiates from the supernatural, could be phenomena in some cases for which science has yet to find an explanation.

    He scripted the character of skeptical psychologist Margaret Matheson specifically with actress Sigourney Weaver in mind for the role, but with no advance commitment from her, though to his relief, she did sign on to the project after reading the script.

    Robert De Niro researched and met with psychics for his role and developed the cautious belief that there is something to the phenomenon based on allegedly psychically-obtained information they were able to tell him that he insists only he knew: “There’s no way they could have known certain things and they said them, so in that sense, I have no answer than to say that I have to believe that there’s something there that they pick up psychically. I don’t know what it is”.

    Filming occurred in Spain and Canada, with ten of the filming locations based in Barcelona, Spain; a week of filming was undertaken at the Fairmont Royal York in Toronto, Canada and significant shots were taken on James Street North in nearby Hamilton, Canada. The filming process for Red Lights commenced in February 2011 and concluded in April 2011.

    Trivia

    • The scene in which Margaret Matheson exposes a psychic healer by listening in on a partner feeding him instructions wirelessly was based on the case in which skeptics James Randi and Steve Shaw (better known under his stage name Banachek), with technical assistance from crime scene analyst and electronics expert Alexander Jason, exposed Peter Popoff in 1986. In that case, as in the scene, Popoff’s wife Elizabeth was feeding him information that she and her aides had taken from prayer request cards filled out by audience members over wireless radio. Some of the dialogue is taken almost verbatim from the actual case. In May 1986, Randi presented the evidence on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962), exposing Popoff’s fraudulent practices. In 1987, Popoff declared bankruptcy, only to make a comeback in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
    • The interception of the wireless transmission and the fake horoscopes handed out in class are taken from James Randi’s actual work of exposing frauds.
    • The videos of the parapsychological experiments done with Silver at the university mimic those done in real life with Uri Geller at the Stanford Research Institute in the 1970s. These experiments are discussed at length and clips of the actual video are shown in the James Randi documentary, An Honest Liar (2014).
    • The song the guy on the toilet is whistling is from the bird-catcher in Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “The Magic Flute”.
    • The black and white clip of the Russian woman moving metal objects and matchsticks around on a table shown by Tom Buckley (Cillian Murphy) in class, is the same clip used in The Atticus Institute (2015), another film about clairvoyants.
    • Toby Jones, Elizabeth Olsen, and Sigourney Weaver appeared in several movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Cillian Murphy and Burn Gorman appeared in movies in the DC Universe.

    Release & Reception

    Red Lights received mainly negative reviews from critics. The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported that 30% of critics have given the film a positive review based on 92 reviews, with an average rating of 4.85/10. The site’s critics consensus reads, “Wasting the talents of an impressive cast on a predictable mystery, Red Lights lacks the clairvoyance to know what audiences want.” On Metacritic, the film has a weighted average score of 36 out of 100 based on 22 critics, indicating “generally unfavorable reviews”. The film was a box office failure as well.

    Trivia

    • Jane Fonda’s character in the movie attended the Woodstock Festival in 1969 while pregnant. Her water broke during Jimi Hendrix’s rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner”. Catherine Keener, who plays the daughter, was actually born in 1959 – ten years before her character.
    • Even though it was released after two other films, in which she appeared, this is Elizabeth Olsen’s first feature film acting job.
    • In this movie, Jane Fonda plays an eccentric hippie named Grace, who has an uptight daughter, with whom she doesn’t get along. In Grace and Frankie (2015), Jane Fonda plays an uptight woman named Grace who doesn’t exactly always get along with Lily Tomlin’s character, Frankie, who is an eccentric hippie.
    • The butcher, for whom Cole works, is named Mr. Fleischer. “Fleischer” is the German word for “butcher”.

    Production Notes

    The script for the film was written by Laura Lau, and based on the Uruguayan film La casa muda (2010). According to Lau, she saw the original film twice and wrote the script for the remake based on the viewings rather than adapting it from paper. The script ultimately came out to around fifty-five to sixty pages, which left the filmmakers concerned as to whether or not the timing would translate during filming: “We wondered whether it would time out properly, because there are no cuts,” said Lau. “There’s no way to fix anything in post, it has to pace perfectly when you shoot it. So I think that was a huge challenge in terms of writing the script.” Upon acquiring the house used for filming, Lau re-wrote the script in order for it to be compatible with the restrictions and characteristics of the house.

    In terms of the film’s unique presentation (being presented as a single take following one character), Lau said: “This entire movie is this woman’s experience; it is her reality […] it is one character’s point of view, it’s exactly what she’s experiencing.” She also stated that several aspects of the film were purposefully left open for interpretation. While writing the script for the film, Lau did extensive research on childhood sexual abuse and posttraumatic stress disorder stemming from psychological trauma.

    Although the film’s marketing campaign (as well as the promotion for the original film La casa muda) states that it is inspired by actual events, the specific events are not entirely known. According to Lau, she and Kentis were told, when approached to make the film, that it was based on an occurrence in Uruguay, though the details were left ambiguous:

    When we were approached to do the remake, the first thing that we were told, aside from the fact that it was a single take, was that it was based on a true story, and that the true story had to do with something that happened in a village in Uruguay like, 60 years ago, where there were dead bodies and incest was involved.

    In terms of casting, Kentis and Lau sought an actress with theatrical training due to the demanding nature of the filming process; Elizabeth Olsen was cast as the lead after impressing Kentis and Lau with her audition.

    The movie was shot with Canon EOS 5D Mark II cameras between October and November 2010 on location at a house in New Rochelle, New York. The house used in the film was found by directors Kentis and Lau entirely empty, and was wallpapered and filled with props and furniture by the production design.

    Due to the unique nature of the film’s presentation as a single take, the production crew ran into several technical issues while filming, mainly surrounding lighting issues and mobility around the house. Since filming was carried out in 12-15 minute takes, there were several occurrences where entire sequences had to be thrown out and re-done repeatedly due to lighting problems or missed cues.

    Although the promotional material for the film suggests that it was filmed in real time in a single long take, Elizabeth Olsen revealed that the movie was actually filmed in 12-minute takes and edited so as to appear as one, which was later confirmed by Kentis and Lau.

    Directors Kentis and Lau stated that they were inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s Rope (1948) and Russian Ark (2002), both purported single take films, as well as the home invasion thriller The Strangers (2008). Due to the unconventional filming process and storytelling mode, Kentis felt he was making an “experimental film.” He also stated that the presentation and storytelling mode of the film as a single take was the main focus of the production, and that the fact that there were cuts in the film was irrelevant.

    Trivia

    • Contrary to the marketing’s claim that the film was shot in one uninterrupted take, the entire movie was actually shot to mimic one continuous real-time take, with no cuts from start to finish, as a result the time span of the film’s plot is exactly 86 minutes. It was shot in roughly 10 minute segments then carefully edited to hide the cuts. This was confirmed in an interview by Elizabeth Olsen and the directors.
    • Due to the unique nature of the film’s presentation as a single take, the production crew ran into several technical issues while filming, mainly surrounding lighting issues and mobility around the house. Since filming was carried out in 12-15 minute takes, there were several occurrences where entire sequences had to be thrown out and re-done repeatedly due to lighting problems or missed cues.
    • Elizabeth Olsen stated during an interview that she suffered from nightmares during filming simply because she would think of frightening things throughout the day.
    • Elizabeth Olsen is in every single scene of the film and the story is told from her point of view, the film never shifts to another character’s perspective.
    • The film’s plot begins roughly around 5:52 PM and ends at 7:18 PM.
    • This is a remake of the Uruguayan horror thriller film La casa muda (2010) which employed the same “continuous” take technique.
    • In terms of the film’s unique presentation (being presented as a single take following one character), Laura Lau said: “This entire movie is this woman’s experience; it is her reality […] it is one character’s point of view, it’s exactly what she’s experiencing.” She also stated that several aspects of the film were purposefully left open for interpretation.
    • Upon acquiring the house used for filming, the directors rewrote the script in order for it to be compatible with the restrictions and characteristics of the house.
    • When writing the script for the film it ultimately resulted in only 55 pages which left the filmmakers concerned as to whether or not the timing would translate well during filming. In regards to this dilemma, director Laura Lau said, “We wondered whether it would time out properly because there are no cuts, there’s no way to fix it in post it has to pace perfectly when you shoot it. So I think that was a huge challenge in terms of writing the script”.
    • Chris Kentis and Laura Lau faced countless challenges while attempting to capture all the natural sounds featured in the film. First off, Elizabeth Olsen had to be followed through the house by an entire crew of people (among them the cinematographer, camera operator, and supporting performers), all of whom made disturbances as they ran after Olsen through the house. Try as they did to muffle the noise of their feet and equipment using all manner of footwear and padding, nothing worked. Worse, the co-directors abandoned every attempt to fix these scenes using ADR, as they felt Olsen’s performance in the recording booth wasn’t nearly as convincing as the breathing, panicking and screaming she unleashed during the 3 week shoot. Instead, they had to subject the audio to rigorous editing and mixing. They also didn’t rely on a lot of post-production Foley work in the studio since, again, the sounds captured in the actual house were more authentic. Then there was the house itself, which lay beneath the flight path of one of the busiest landing strips at LaGuardia Airport. Sound proofing the house was easy enough but, as a direct result, dampened the acoustics of the rooms.

    Release & Reception

    The film opened at number 5 at the United States box office, earning $6,661,234 during its opening weekend, showing on 2,124 screens. It would go on to show in theaters until late April 2012, grossing a total of $12,754,783 domestically. In foreign markets, it grossed a total of USD$346,889.

    Internet review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes shows the film has a score of 41% based on reviews from 125 critics, with the site’s consensus: “Silent House is more technically proficient and ambitious than most fright-fests, but it also suffers from a disappointing payoff.” The film received a harsh reception from audiences, earning an “F” grade from CinemaScore surveys (only the second movie of the year to receive the failing grade along with The Devil Inside); as of April 2020, it is one of only 19 films to receive such a rating.

    Neil Genzlinger of The New York Times praised Olsen’s performance and the cinematography. Some publications, such as The Daily Telegraph, applauded Olsen’s performance, calling it “brilliantly nervy and detailed”, while Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian said Olsen “isn’t as interesting as she was in Martha Marcy May Marlene“, and said the film, despite being atmospheric, “feels like a copy”. Nonetheless, he awarded the film a 3/5 star rating. The Star Tribune described the film as “a psychotic episode come to life”, and that it “follows the form of a Gothic novel”, applauding it as being “impressive and oppressive”. Others praised the technical production of the film, such as The Atlantic, who noted “the camera’s unblinking eye constantly stays with Olsen, and we feel in as much danger as she is.” Jonathan Crocker of Total Film described the camera as “gliding with impressive agility, the queasy HD lensing closes in tight and tracks Olsen’s petrified face, room to room”, and, although critical of the film’s ending, called the film “brutally effective” and “a fun campfire horror tale”

    Other critics found the film’s technicality unappealing, with Rob Gonsalves of eFilmcritic saying “the underlit setting occasionally produces unsettling, suggestive imagery, but the technique took me out of the movie,” while The Observer accused the film of “wasting the talent of Elizabeth Olsen.” The staff of The A.V. Club named it one of the worst movies of 2012, noting its “mediocrity takes a downward turn in a final act that hinges on an icky, exploitative twist.” Roger Ebert awarded the film two out of four stars, writing: “My attention was held for the first act or so. Then any attempt at realism was abandoned, and it became clear that the house, and the movie containing it, were devices to manufacture methodical thrills. The explanation, if that’s what it was, seemed devised and unconvincing.”

    David Edelstein of Vulture praised the film, defending it against the perceived critical backlash, writing: “It’s odd that the CinemaScore rating for Silent House, a more than decent gimmicky scare picture that opened last Friday, is an “F” — suggesting that critics like me are more excited by formal inventiveness than most of the film-going public.” In a 2017 retrospective by Film School RejectsSilent House was named one of the most “underrated” horror films of the twenty-first century. Psychologist Sharon Packer notes the film as an example of dissociative identity disorder in contemporary horror films, alongside other genre films such as High Tension (2005) and The Uninvited (2009).

    Running time: 102 minutes
    Directed by: Sean Durkin
    Written by: Sean Durkin
    Produced by: Daniel Bensi, Saunder Jurriaans

    After not hearing from her in two years, Lucy receives a telephone call from her only sibling, younger Martha, who eventually accepts Lucy’s offer to come pick her up. Martha, who only mentions that she was living with a boyfriend in upstate New York, ends up staying with Lucy and her new husband, Ted, an architect, in their rented Connecticut lake-front recreational home. During her stay with them, Martha seems unfocused about what she will do with her life. She also displays inappropriate behavior, not matching anything resembling western convention. Lucy doesn’t press Martha on the root cause of the behavior because of their family history, and Lucy’s resulting want to provide unconditional support and love to her only family. Ted tolerates the behavior if only to keep Lucy happy. What Martha has not told them is that those two years she was renamed Marcy May and were spent with a cult, her behavior being what she was indoctrinated into as being what was done with that group. Situations with Lucy and Ted trigger those memories for Martha and resulting behavior. Even in her brainwashed state, Martha became to realize that certain actions by the cult were not what she knew to be right, and was able to escape from them. But as her time with Lucy and Ted progresses, Martha begins to lose track of what memories are real and what are phantom, which is exacerbated by her belief that the cult is after her. In her paranoid state, Martha becomes a risk not only to Lucy and Ted but to herself.

    Cast & Characters

    Elizabeth Olsen (Martha/Marcy May/”Marlene Lewis”), John Hawkes (Patrick), Sarah Paulson (Lucy), Hugh Dancy (Ted), Brady Corbet (Watts), Christopher Abbott (Max), Michael Chmiel (Scruffy man), Maria Dizzia (Katie), Julia Garner (Sarah), Louisa Krause (Zoe).

    Production Notes

    Sean Durkin started writing script of Martha Marcy May Marlene in 2007. When researching his script, Durkin read about what he calls “the big ones” of cults: Jonestown, the Manson family, the Unification Church of the United States and David Koresh. He realised he wanted to make something more experiential than political and downplayed the ideology and goals of the cult.

    While researching, Durkin became fascinated by how someone gets into the farm or commune or group, and made a short film of the name Mary Last Seen about it starring Brady Corbet, who plays cult recruiter Watts in both the short and feature films. Mary Last Seen won the award for best short film at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival Directors’ Fortnight. While Mary Last Seen was about how someone gets into the cult, Martha Marcy May Marlene was about what happens to someone when they get out of it. Durkin made the short to show the world Martha was in, and also with the intent to send it out with the script for Martha Marcy May Marlene to potential investors. Mary Last Seen was selected for the Sundance Film Festival, and Durkin was given a distribution deal with Fox Searchlight.

    Durkin and DP Jody Lee Lipes were inspired by the films Rosemary’s Baby3 WomenKluteInteriors, and Margot at the Wedding. The look of the film was particularly inspired by the last film.

    Trivia

    • Sean Durkin was looking for an unknown actress to play the role of Martha, which was the only role auditions were held for. Elizabeth Olsen auditioned twice for the role of Martha, and had to begin filming only two weeks after winning the part.
    • Elizabeth Olsen and Sarah Paulson invented together some background for the sisters’ relationship. So every scene when they talked about their past, although it’s vague on the script and for the viewer, Olsen and Paulson knew exactly what Martha and Lucy are talking about.
    • Shot over 20 days.
    • There are several references to the work of singer-songwriter, Jackson C. Frank. John Hawkes plays “Marcy’s song” in the film, while “Marlene” is played over the credits. It can be assumed that John Hawkes’ character, Patrick, fabricated the names Marcy May and Marlene from these songs.

    Release & Reception

    Martha Marcy May Marlene premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival in January, with Durkin winning the festival’s U.S. Directing Award for Best Drama. It also screened in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival and at the 36th Toronto International Film Festival on September 11, 2011. The film received a limited release in the United States on October 21, 2011.

    In its opening weekend in limited release, Martha Marcy May Marlene grossed $137,651 in the United States. 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment released Martha Marcy May Marlene on DVD and Blu-ray on February 21, 2012.

    The film received highly positive reviews, with Olsen’s performance as the traumatized Martha met with critical acclaim; the film holds a 89% “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with the consensus capsule stating, “Led by a mesmerizing debut performance from Elizabeth Olsen, Martha Marcy May Marlene is a distinctive, haunting psychological drama.” On Metacritic the film has a 76 out of 100 “Metascore”. Christy Lemire of the Associated Press named Martha Marcy May Marlene the best film of 2011. Roger Ebert gave the film three-and-a-half out of four stars, describing Olsen as “a genuine discovery … She has a wide range of emotions to deal with here, and in her first major role, she seems instinctively to know how to do that.” Ebert’s only major complaint was that the movie’s chronological shifts were “a shade too clever. In a serious film, there is no payoff for trickery.”

    “I trained to [become a volunteer] and then did Wind River, and it had a deeper meaning in some way because I’ve never been assaulted, I’ve never had to personally deal with anything like that.” Olsen now volunteers at the center every Tuesday. She says she was reluctant to talk about this volunteer work during recent film festivals promoting Wind River. “It was like, ‘I don’t need to tell people what charity I do.’ I think it’s funny when people are like, this is my charity. It’s also not something to brag about. It’s a really devastating thing in the world.”

    Elizabeth is a very private person when it comes to speaking about not only her personal life, but also her volunteer work. To respect her wishes, we have only compiled information on charity and causes she has publicly supported.

    The Latitude Project

    002.jpg007.jpg003.jpg038.jpg

    The Latitude Project is an organization working to alleviate poverty in Latin America by pursuing and funding initiatives that improve the standard of living. Elizabeth had her first contact with the organization in 2017 when she met founders Jenn and Alanna Tynan while on a trip to Nicaragua.

    After visiting areas that needed infrastructure support, she volunteered in a school to repair desks and update the athletic equipment. In an interview with InStyle, Elizabeth shared her experience on the two trips she took where she got to work with the organization.

    The Tynans were working with impoverished local communities that needed infrastructure support, so I went with them to visit these areas and ended up volunteering in a school to repair desks and update the athletic equipment. I learned that Nicaragua is the second-poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, and each year The Latitude Project chooses a different community to partner with on a big initiative, which could be anything from building a preschool to improving access to latrines.

    Jenn and Alanna empower the community by fully involving everyone in the task at hand. Residents know that if they don’t show up to work then the project won’t get done. The locals take so much pride in it that they are motivated to maintain these structures and systems after the Latitude team leaves. Everyone knows the Tynan sisters as the hermanas. There is so much excitement around their presence because they have set a tone of trust and intimacy.

    This past fall I went on my second trip to San Juan del Sur and visited a new community. This area didn’t have any electricity, so we distributed solar lights. Because I’m not fluent in Spanish, the best way I can communicate with the people is physically—I play kickball with kids or act like a clown just to make them laugh.

    St. Jude Inspired Questions

    003.jpg023.jpg070.jpg201.jpg

    Inspired Questions is St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s project, kicked off in 2019, in which viewers can discover fun facts about their favorite influencers and celebrities. Elizabeth sat down for a fun Q&A, giving insight into her new hobbies, most challenging on-screen role and what moved her about St. Jude.

    In response to school closures due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, actresses Jennifer Garner and Amy Adams came up with #SAVEWITHSTORIES. In partnership with Save the Children and No Kid Hungry, they will be offering stories on Instagram and Facebook to provide fun, education, and distraction for kids and parents. They will also be challenging people they know – actors, athletes, musicians, politicians – to join them.

    Elizabeth joined the movement in March 2020, posting on her official Instagram page a video of herself reading Adrian Simcox Does NOT Have a Horse by Marcy Campbell and Corinna Luyken. The fund goes out to support schools and community programs, make sure they have what they need to keep brains and bellies full.

    Miu Miu

    Elizabeth’s first advertising campaign was for Miu Miu‘s Spring/Summer 2014 Campaign. Joined by actresses Elle Fanning, Lupita Nyong’o, and Bella Heathcote, they’d be translating the new spirit of the Miu Miu woman “full of personality, convey their diverse points of view”.

    002.jpg001.jpg005.jpg012.jpg

    During a call interview for Vogue, the editorial whiz, Garren, who worked with photographers Inez and Vinoodh on the campaign’s promotional shoot spoke about Elizabeth’s look for the brand:

    “We tried something more medium-length on Elizabeth first for the picture, but it wasn’t working. It was too pretty, too ladylike,” he says of eventually deciding to add on a 26-inch set of extensions, then “toning the color down, taking away the blonde, making it more straight. It’s not blunt. It’s piecey and silky smooth. I was thinking of Cher in the ’70s,” he continues, offering confirmation on the Cher hypothesis. Asked to make sense of it’s weirdly powerful appeal, he pauses for a minute. “Hair that’s middle-of-the-road right now is the same as nothing hair. You either chop it off or you commit to having a look. That, to me, is what makes it modern and cool.”

    Khiel’s

    April is Earth Month, and Khiel‘s kicks off every year a month-long celebration of recycling, all to benefit Recycle Across America. During their celebration, they challenge celebrities to redesign product packaging for a good cause. Elizabeth and Maggie Q were the chosen ones in 2015, and they decided on remixing Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado jar.

    H&M

    Elizabeth Olsen and Winona Rider go tango for H&M‘s Spring 2018 collection. The commercial was shot in Buenos Aires, featuring the two actresses – alongside models Imaan Hammam and Anna Ewers – dancing with each other after giving Olsen’s male dancing partner the boot.

    003.jpg003.jpg024.jpg027.jpg

    “It was such a thrill to be in Buenos Aires for the H&M Spring campaign, and more importantly, to be surrounded by such a wonderful cast of strong women. The entire experience was incredibly inspiring.”

    Bosideng

    Elizabeth was featured in Bosideng‘s Holiday 2018 collection, wearing a jacket of the brand. There really isn’t much about this particular campaign, aside from details on the collection.

    002.jpg001.jpg002.jpg001.jpg

    Bobbi Brown

    Bobbi Brown Cosmetics announced in March 2019 that they had partner with three multi-dimensional women to “magnify its original ethos of celebrating individual beauty and female empowerment” with the launch of the Confident Beauty campaign. Actresses Elizabeth Olsen, Yara Shahidi, and NiNi share with “beauty truths” in hopes to inspire women everywhere. Elizabeth has since then shared her view of beauty and even made a few how-to make-up videos for social media.

    004.jpg011.jpg023.jpg168.jpg

    “It’s incredible to be part of a brand that has been so consistent and true to its identity in an industry that’s so inconsistent. Since the 90s we have seen many trends come and go and come back again, and Bobbi Brown Cosmetics has always been a timeless brand.”

    ON LIFE

    • “I love food more than I love anything that has to do with clothes.”
    • “If I could do whatever I wanted for the day, I’d start with going to the gym or doing some sort of workout, then I’d go to the grocery store because my favorite thing to do is grocery shop,” she says. “The night before I would have prepped bread, like dough, then the next day I’d bake bread and create a delicious meal, sit outside in the sun, eat delicious food all day with people I love.”
    • “There are ways you can be private – my sisters are intimately private and I respect that. They showed me that you can be private, but also accessible to journalists, for those reasons. It’s helpful and I learnt my value system from them. They’ve always had the greatest friends and so have I. People always ask, ‘was it hard for you to make friends once you started working?’ And I’m like, ‘what are you talking about? No.’ I already had those and the ones I made through work are great.”
    • “I know I’m a white blonde American woman, and I know what that looks like to other people, and I know what saying I went to a private school looks like to other people. I think that’s why people try to put on some accent and be a little bit tougher or more ‘street’ than they actually are. I think it’s very important not to fool yourself. You can be who you are and still be able to relate to different kinds of people in the world.”
    • “When I was 14 or 15, I was a really good volleyball player, so I thought, ‘Well, maybe I’ll just get a scholarship to an Ivy League school through volleyball.’ Then I quit when I decided to focus on theater.”
    • “I get way too much happiness from good food.”
    • “I also want to go to an Italian island and do cuisine properly with some famous Italian chef and, like, his mother.”
    • “Everyone is always surprised by how old I am. They think I’m older, but it’s always been that way. I’m the youngest of four – maybe you grow up quicker because you just watch the big people.”
    • “I always went to see independent films, they’re the movies I’m usually most excited to see.”
    • “I believe that you are only in control of so much. So whatever you are not in control of you can’t worry about.”
    • “I was embarrassed that I even wanted to become an actress because coming from L.A., with two older sisters in the business and a mom who had been a ballet dancer, it was such a cliche.”
    • “I would love to date a chef. I’d probably get really fat, but I don’t care.”
    • “I’m terrified of improv. Improv in a show or in front of an audience sounds terrifying.”
    • “What keeps you confident in a healthy way is knowing that everyone else around you is going to support you and teach you and you’re going to learn from them. I just feel open to learning from people.”

    ON HER CAREER

    • “I auditioned equally for film and theater. The difference is that theater has seasons, while film, it’s always happening.”
    • “And at NYU, I went to the Atlantic Theater Company, and they have two main points. One of them is to always be active in something instead of just feeling it. And the other is figuring out your character.”
    • “Maybe I think about things too rationally, but my career goals are longevity and stamina. Working steadily, feeling challenged, and just kind of hunkering down for a bit.”
    • “[on Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011)] Sean Durkin really wrote a complex character that really hasn’t been written, and that’s challenging. It’s such a smart way of writing, you totally understand the characters and I was just completely obsessed and in love with “Martha” and the script.”
    • “It just felt playful, like you’re playing make-believe. I can imagine myself during recess or before school on the playground being like, ‘I’m Scarlet Witch! Pow!’ To think of little girls being like ‘I’m powerful and strong and tough!’- that’s really cool.”
    • “[on doing her nude scenes in Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011)] My dad, when he found out there was nudity in the film, was like, are you sure this is a good idea? Me as a person, I don’t even wear things that show my midriff ever. I’m a very covered-up human being.”

    ON FASHION & BEAUTY

    • “Dresses make me feel a bit funny. I’m trying to get more confident with my feminine side. I just like everything to feel really easy and comfortable. Nothing fussy. I don’t like body-conscious clothing.”
    • “My style is a bit masculine. I’m not really drawn to feminine prints even though I admire them—when I put them on I feel like I’m playing dress-up in someone else’s clothes.
    • “[on her go-to outfit] Nice fitted pants and an oversize blouse tucked in—I wear the same three pairs of pants. If I want to feel dressed up I’ll put on a kitten heel.”
    • “[on her red-carpet ritual] I like to get a workout in any day I’m photographed. Your face looks more alive when you’ve broken a sweat.”
    • “Red is my go-to color when I’m not wearing black, white, gray, or navy. But I definitely feel like there’s a moment to do it on the red carpet. If I were in a movie with an ensemble of 12 people, I don’t know if I’d go walking out in a red look. I think it’s important to be in line with the other people that you’re working with.”

  • Elizabeth is best friends with Aaron Carter’s twin sister Angel Carter.
  • CAREER

  • Elizabeth didn’t always like being in front of a camera. In fact, cameras used to make her incredibly nervous. She thinks that is probably why she focused so much on theatre early in her career.
  • She landed her agent by herself and did not need to use her older sisters connection to break into the Hollywood scene.
  • Was cast as the lead in Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011), just two weeks before shooting.

  • She is comfortable with
