Even for a guy whose films are unified by their pervasive sense of chillness, Richard Linklater’s never been lacking in ambition. He’s pulled off formless philosophical rambles (Slacker, Waking Life) and a bildungsroman twelve years in the making (Boyhood), but his grandest project has to be the Before trilogy of romance films. Across three decades and three pictures (1995’s Before Sunrise, 2004’s Before Sunset, and 2013’s Before Midnight) Linklater has tracked what could justly be named one of cinema’s great love affairs as it’s progressed from infatuation at first sight to a long-awaited reunion to adult life and the domesticity that goes with it.
The cast of Avengers: Age of Ultron is already quite large, featuring not only the original superheroes reprising their roles from the first film, but new additions like Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, and — as confirmed yesterday — Ulysses Klaw. We thought we knew the names of just about everyone involved, but it looks like Joss Whedon’s sequel still has a few casting surprises in store: Linda Cardellini and Julie Delpy have been confirmed for Age of Ultron, but who are they playing?
Richard Linklater brings his 'Before' trilogy to close this week with 'Before Midnight,' in which we pick up with Celine (Julie Delpy) and Jesse (Ethan Hawke) 10 years after the second film.

In June we reported that Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy and director Richard Linklater were thinking about making a trilogy of their 'Before' films. Now it appears that they've already finished shooting the film, which is now known as 'Before Midnight.'
Actress, writer and director Julie Delpy has her eyes on a pretty big prize for her next film: Woody Allen. The talented lady recently admitted in an interview that she'd like to cast the legendary director in her upcoming project, titled 'Virgo Rising.'
In life, a first kiss is the beginning of a relationship. In romantic comedies, it's almost always the end of the story. At this point we all just accept that because we've seen it played out onscreen hundreds of times, but isn't it weird? Shouldn't there be more to onscreen romances than that?
If your answer to that question is "yes," then you'll probably enjoy '2 Days in New York,' a r
'2 Days in New York,' Julie Delpy's follow-up to '2 Days in Paris,' her 2007 romantic dramedy, is much more humorous than its predecessor but lacks the punch of exploring neuroses in relationships. And perhaps that's because '2 Days in New York' examines the way a relationship works rather than the ways in which it falls apart -- and that's okay, too.
