  • 20:52 - MOVIES: Avengers: Age Of Ultron - US Opening Day Box Office Numbers
    Avengers: Age of Ultron opened to $27.6m in its North American Thursday night debut, ahead of the $18.7m 2012's Marvel's The Avengers opened to its opening night. While not a record (the final Harry Potter, The Dark Knight and three Twilight films all had higher Thursday night grosses) most analysts are saying the film is still likely on track to top the original Avengers all-time opening weekend record of $207.4m.

    A month ago, Furious 7 opened to $15.8M its opening Thursday night and went on to gross $147.2m for the full weekend.

    Age of Ultron also debuted Thursday in Mexico to that country's all-time highest opening day gross - $6.8m - and has currently accumulated $287.3m in foreign box office since April 22.


  • 16:53 - Revenge - Series Finale - Sunil Nayar Interview
    Does Emily Thorne need to die at the end of this journey?
    SUNIL NAYAR: That was a huge part of the conversation, because it is the end of a journey, but it’s a journey that’s been so darkly taken.. How do we want her to feel at the end of this journey, and how do we want the audience to feel about the nature of this journey? Do we want this to be a tale where people think, “I should go do that?” Or do we want this to be a tale of people thinking, “I could go do that, but there’s a serious price to be paid by doing it?” What we really love about the darkness of this show is that at the end of the day, it is the latter. There’s no getting out of this clean. Whether that means that you’re dead, or whether it means you are deeply wounded, or you have to carry this darkness with you, I think that at the end of the day, you’ll see everybody in this show is affected by the world they’ve gotten themselves into and the darkness that hard to pull out. The big parts of the conversation were, “How does Emily Thorne, and now Amanda Clarke’s, story end?” I think that the audience will be really satisfied with the journey she ends up taking and where she ends up at the end of the show.

    How is Emily dealing with being helpless in the final two episodes as she faces being on trial?
    Yeah, and that’s one of the things we really wanted to do was almost strip her of all of her power and to give her situations that aren’t within her control. One of the things that when we embraced the idea of David having cancer was it was born of the idea that Amanda Clarke can do anything. She can handle anything, she’s smart, she’s physical, she’s a ninja, but, suddenly, here’s something that she can’t control. There’s nothing that she can do, and so she can juts hope that her father’s getting the treatment that she wants, but it’s a thing that exists out of her strategic world and puts her into an emotional world. What we really wanted to do was to take her on a really emotional journey, to take away her freedoms, to actually have her suffer a lot at the hands her rivals so that we can see deeper into her and really examine the human being that is Amanda Clarke as we get to the end of the series.

    The logline for the finale says that Emily is forced to finally admit her guilt.
    Yeah, a couple of the big things that happen in episode 21 really shake Emily to the core where she has to take responsibility for the repercussions of her actions. She calls herself on the carpet, essentially, at the beginning of the series finale and it’s a pretty surprising moment.

  • 09:35 - Significant Mother - CW Comedy - Nathaniel Buzolic Joins Cast
    Nathaniel Buzolic, best known for playing the original Kol Mikaelson on The Vampire Diaries—and in flashbacks on The Originals—is returning to The CW.

    EW has learned exclusively that Buzolic has been cast in the upcoming comedy Significant Mother from The CW and Alloy Entertainment. The show follows a Portland restauranteur named Nate (Josh Zuckerman), who has his whole world turned upside down when he finds out that his best friend is dating his newly separated mother, played by Krista Allen. That best friend? Jimmy, who will be played by Buzolic.

    Jimmy’s official character description reads: “A home brewmaster and part-time bartender, Jimmy Barnes is a carefree optimist who leads with his heart, followed a while later by his head. And while he has always been loved by the ladies, his new relationship with his best friend’s mom may turn him into a one-woman kind of guy.”

    Of course, Jimmy’s new found love of monogamy could be an issue when Nate’s father, played by Jonathan Silverman, later decides that he wants to win his wife back.

    Significant Mother premieres Monday, August 3 at 9:30 p.m. on The CW.

I want to thank my friends Kathleen Kennedy, Kiri Hart, Simon Kinberg, and everyone at Lucasfilm and Disney for the amazing opportunity to have been a part of this. May the Force be with you all.”
