Marvel Studios presents “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.
Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.
Making his directorial debut with a nighttime two-hander, Before We Go, actor Chris Evans has gravitated to dramatic material far removed from the effects-driven world saving of his Captain America movies. Starring alongside Alice Eve, Evans puts his own spin on the “one night” film, a sub-genre that has been explored over the years in pictures ranging from Before Sunrise to Into the Night to In Search of a Midnight Kiss. Here, Evans tells us what he tried to do differently and what’s unique about Gotham at night. Before We Go premieres this week at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Filmmaker: There have been several great “one night in New York City movies,” but not a really good one for some time. How is the nocturnal New York you encountered in Before We Go different from the nighttime New York seen in movies going back to the ’90s, ’80s and ’70s? And how did today’s nocturnal New York character affect the story of your movie?
Evans: Most “all night New York” movies show the city as an animal that never sleeps and that can always provide a cast of unpredictable situations and characters. Instead of making the city loud, I tried to make it quiet. I tried to show the city as an intimate world for two people to explore each other. The city has such a natural romance to it, which in my opinion was a perfect place to stage a love story.

Chris Evans believes that timing is everything.
Captain America himself made his directorial debut in Before We Go, casting himself as Nick, a guy who meets Brooke (Alice Eve) after she is mugged. The pair spend a long, connected night in New York City after missing the last train at Grand Central Station.
“New York is a very romantic city, and yes, I believe timing is everything to some degree,” Evans said on the TIFF red carpet at Princess of Wales Theatre Friday evening.
“I’ve wanted to direct for a long time and this story felt manageable. It’s embarrassing to say that because it’s my first time directing and I’ve never been to film school, so you don’t want to bite off more than you can chew. This felt like a healthy first attempt.”
Unlike his character Nick, Evans said he would likely flee if he confronted by a robber.
“My go-to move is I’d panic and call for help,” he said.
Eve said she sensed Evans was a bit inexperienced in the director’s chair and “sensed his nerves,” but by the end of the shoot, he was “confident.”
A new trailer for Playing It Cool (previously titled A Many Splintered Thing) has been released. You can watch the trailer below.
The gallery has been updated with more pictures from different events Chris Evans attended during the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival as well as new photoshoots. Enjoy the new additions!
Yesterday Chris Evans attended the premiere for Before We Go at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival as well as a cocktail reception after the premiere. Pictures of both events have now been added to the gallery.
CHRIS EVANS OF ‘BEFORE WE GO’
“There are certain songs you listen to that you just think belong in a movie,” Evans says of choosing the soundtrack for the romance about two strangers who spend a night together in New York—his favorite part about directing in addition to starring in the film.
RADiUS has acquired U.S. rights to the Chris Evans helmed pic “Before We Go.”
Evans also stars alongside Alice Eve, with Ron Bass and Jen Smolka penning the script.
Story follows two strangers who over one night form a friendship after bonding over the issues in their own lives.
The pic is produced by Evans, McG, Mary Viola, Karen Baldwin and Howard Baldwin, Mary Kessen and Bill Immerman.
Sources tell Variety RADiUS has only discussed a theatrical release at this point with plans to release the pic in the second quarter of 2015.
CAA, who reps Evans, brokered the deal. Deadline Hollywood first reported the news.
There’s little more terrifying in the movie business than directing your first feature film and releasing it into the wild. That fear multiplies by several degrees when you’re already a major movie star. That’s the scenario Captain America himself, Chris Evans, finds himself in with “Before We Go.” The film, which premieres at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, follows a young couple’s night in New York City. When Abby (Alice Eve) gets robbed and misses her train back to Boston, she finds herself stranded in the city with no money and no one to call for assistance. Luckily, she meets Pete (Evans), a struggling musician who volunteers to help her out and get her back home. They end up spending the rest of the night wandering around the city, discussing their lives and relationships.
It might seem weird that a man best known for his work in superhero movies has chosen a romantic comedy for his directorial debut. However, as Evans explained during our interview, he is a big fan of the genre and responded well to the script, which was penned by Ron Bass, best known for writing the screenplay to “Rain Man.” Evans seems relieved to be done with the shoot, yet is excited that the final product is finally starting to make its way in front of audiences. (The film was shot this past December before Evans took off to film the upcoming “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” hitting theaters in 2015.)
Below, Evans speaks about when he first decided he wanted to direct a film, how difficult it was shooting it in New York City, and how it felt going back to acting after he was finished directing “Before We Go.”
Congrats on the film. I am sure directing your first feature can be a…
[Makes vomit noise] Thanks, man.
It’s good to be done. It’s intimidating to be talking about it, because I am so used to being an actor, where your job is a small piece of the puzzle.
The burden isn’t all on you.
Nah. It’s like, I did my job. If I didn’t like the movie it’s not my fault. But this time, if you don’t like the movie, that’s my fault [laughs].
So you went through test screenings for this film. How did those go? I assume they aren’t fun, particularly for a first-time director.
They went well. But it’s emotionally challenging. You have to read things where you’re like “Oh god!” And that’s OK. I am sure every movie I’ve made even as an actor had multiple test screenings. And I am sure there have been horrible things written about me. But I never have to see them! And with this process you have to see them, and that’s tough.
