Many of us feel overwhelmed when we wake up and think about what needs to be accomplished in a day. Now multiply that general feeling by a large factor and add the pressure of worldwide interest; that’s what Joss Whedon is probably feeling right now. The director of The Avengers is currently getting ready to direct the pilot for ABC’s S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series, while simultaneously writing The Avengers 2 and acting as a consultant on the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In a new interview, Whedon talked about his current role in all those things. He said The Avengers 2 is mid-script, would be finished in a few months and would ”go deeper” instead of bigger. The S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show shoots in just over a week, and he also discusses how Marvel action would translate to the small screen. Finally, he talks about just how involved he’s been with the upcoming Marvel films, which includes Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy.

Next to the $1B+ grosses for The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises, Project X‘s respectable $100M worldwide take seems like spare change. But there is one arena in which the Todd Phillips-produced raunchfest is king: illegal downloads.
Project X has emerged as the single most pirated film of 2012 — as well as the lowest grossing of the top 10, which also includes both of the aforementioned box office smashes. Read the full list after the jump.

In Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers, the director has two long takes that feature all the members of the team. The first is in the research lab on the Helicarrier where Loki’s plan to disband the team goes into play. The second takes place during the Battle of New York where the team completely get in sync with their combat. Speaking with Whedon during the release of the film, he explained the choice as follows;
I did know I had a couple [long takes] that I felt were integral, one because it was a way of showing how disjointed they all were and one to show how united they all were.
That second one, with people flying around the city, jumping on enemies and more, wasn’t actually shot as a long take. Obviously. It was the result of countless man hours at Industrial Light and Magic as effects were placed in the shots and each was stitched together. A brand new video has come online that explains the creation of this shot, shows some animatics and more. Check it out below. Read More »
