Friends from College is a comedic exploration of old friendships, former romantic entanglements and balancing adult life with nostalgia for the past when a group of friends from college begin to deal with the fact that, as they reach their forties, things haven’t necessarily worked out as they hoped.

Friends From College stars Keegan Michael Key, Cobie Smulders, Fred Savage, Annie Parisse, Nat Faxon and Jae Suh Park – and will premiere on Netflix this summer.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back – Pure Action Movie Fun!

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back – based on the novel by Lee Child – is both a typical and atypical Tom Cruise action movie. It has a decent plot; plenty of action, chases (on foot and by car), clever solutions to difficult problems, and a lead female role that is an equal protagonist – and another one that could almost be a kid Reacher.

Directed by Edward Zwick (Glory, The Last Samurai), Never Go Back is plain, (kinda) old-fashioned action movie fun.

Avengers: Age of Ultron – Super Superhero Fun!

avengers-age-of-ultron-No Strings

Three years ago, Joss Whedon’s Marvel’s The Avengers blew everyone away by taking a group off characters who should never have been in the same room together and making us believe that they could save the world together. It was fresh and new and shiny.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is not fresh and new and shiny – but it is a fresh look at why these characters should, in fact, be in the same room even as cracks appear in the team that foreshadow less happy things to come.

Morena Baccarin On Short List For Avengers!

Morena Baccarin jessica lucas cobie smulders Mary Elizabeth Winstead

Morean Baccarin [V, Firefly] is among the actors shortlisted to play Nick Fury’s ‘sidekick’ – the word used by Samuel L. Jackson to describe the character on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Others on the list include: Jessica Lucas [Cloverfield], Cobie Smulders [How I Met your Mother] and Mary Elizabeth Winstead [Scott Pilgrim vs. The World].

Initial speculation was that the character for which they are testing was The Wasp/Janet Van Dyne, but with Jackson’s revelation it seems more likely that the character could be Contessa Valentina De Fontaine, fury’s long-time confident and fellow S.H.I.E.L.D. operative.

Whatever the case, given that Baccarin has worked with Avengers’ director Joss Whedon before, she might have an edge in the casting process.

Marshall [Jason Segal] and Lily [Alyson Hannigan] have decided to try to have a baby; Robin has devolved into a formless inhaler of Cheetos over losing Don; Ted [Josh Radnor] is fixated on a cute girl at the bar, and Barney [Neil Patrick Harris] is both wowed by the girl at the bar and moved to pronounce Robin’s ability to entice gone forever. And that’s not the half of it.
