One of the most heart-wrenching moments in last summer’s Captain America: The First Avenger came near the end, when (SPOILER ALERT, obviously) Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) promises Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) a date that he fails to make because he sacrifices himself to save the world. When he wakes up in 2012, their scheduled appointment, of course, has long since passed. But according to director Joss Whedon, the pair almost had a better-late-than-never reunion in The Avengers. More after the jump.

I love the process of filmmaking and seeing eye on the wall footage from the making of big films. Today Hollywood doesn’t produce many behind the scenes documentaries in this style. Studios do release reels of b-roll footage to tv outlets at junkets to cut into those 4-minute on camera interviews. Over the years we’ve posted embeds of the raw video material on the site for everyone to enjoy.
After the jump you can watch 20 minutes of spliced footage from the set of The Avengers. There is some very enjoyable moments, watching Joss Whedon direct the cast, seeing Mark Ruffalo seeing models of himself as The Incredible Hulk for the first time, seeing Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans run around a stunt stage with plastic weapons learning their action sequence choreography, and much more. Unfortunately they don’t let us hear what is being said, but instead its all set to Alan Silvestri‘s score for the film.
Warning: The b-roll clips probably contain some behind the scenes footage of scenes and sequences being filmed that some of you would rather not see before seeing the film. I’m not sure I consider any of the footage “spoilers”, but you might. You have been warned.

In June 2011, Marvel invited a handfull of journalists to the set of The Avengers. /Film was lucky to be a part of this amazing 2-day visit to Albuquerque Studios. Over the next week we’ll be publishing transcripts of our full roundtable interviews with the cast and crew of the production. Later today you’ll find interviews with the creative team, writer/director Joss Whedon and producer/Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige.
After the jump you’ll find both parts of the video blogs I recorded with Steve from Collider chatting about the visit. This is where you can hear about our experiences on set with more of an opinionated spin. We have a set of 8 behind the scenes photos from production, four of which is exclusive to our visit. And finally, you’ll find a list of interesting bits that I learned on the trip — over 60 in all. They range from the script, to why Avengers didn’t shoot in 3D, to where this ties in with the previous stories, and even some updates on future Marvel movie and television productions.

The Avengers is so close you can almost taste it. Directed by Joss Whedon, the Disney/Marvel superhero team up is now less than a month away from its premiere and tickets are already on sale for midnight shows May 3-4. It’s hard to believe that after literally years of build up and anticipating five movies before it: Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, the big pay off is finally upon us.
Promotion is in full swing, with new posters and toys being released on a daily basis, and Disney has just released twelve new promo shots from the film. You can check them out after the jump. Read More »

Between Trespass and the Razzie-nominated Just Go With It, it’s safe to say 2011 wasn’t Nicole Kidman‘s best year. Happily, her upcoming slate looks much more promising. Kidman will hit the big screen this year in Lee Daniels’ The Paperboy and Chan-wook Park’s Stoker, and the small one in HBO’s Hemingway & Gellhorn. As for her next move beyond that, Kidman has entered talks to star in Before I Go to Sleep, from 28 Weeks Later and The American scribe Rowan Jaffe.
Based on the bestselling novel by S.J. Watson, the psychological thriller revolves around a woman who wakes up each morning with no recollection of her past 20 years, due to a mysterious accident that left her suffering from amnesia. She begins using journals to try and record some of her memories, but grows suspicious of her husband Ben. Sounds a lot like Memento, or perhaps 50 First Dates if you’re feeling less charitable.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
In October, Marvel Studios dropped the first trailer for Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers, which stars Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson. Since then we’ve seen quite a few stills and a bit of extra footage, all of which promises a union of characters from the Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man films, and a lot of destruction in New York City as the city is attacked by the army of Loki (Tom Hiddleston).
The extended Super Bowl spot really doesn’t reveal too much — there is some new footage of each of the heroes, especially of the Hulk, but for those who want to know just what sort of army Loki has assembled, the shot that hits about thirty seconds into the spot will be the key image. Read More »
