'Trust Me' was supposed to be a comedy

Apr 22 2013, 8:06pm CDT | by

'Trust Me' was originally intended to be a goofy comedy about Hollywood.

Clark Gregg - who wrote, directed and stars in the movie - admitted he meant to pen a humourous tale and only realised when he had finished his first draft that the film, about a low-rent former child star who now represents other young actors, had a much darker tone.

He told the Huffington Post: ''I thought I was writing a goofy comedy about the business ...

''I mean, I don't feel like it changes at the end. I feel like there's a gradually evolving darker component. But, yeah, it came blazing out of me, and I saw when I read it back, 'Oh, this is different.' This is representative of my ambivalent feelings that I have about Hollywood and about kind of the distorted concept of stardom. Especially in this celebrity-obsessed moment.''

Clark celebrated the world premiere of the film at the CIROC vodka sponsored 2013 Tribeca Film Festival in New York over the weekend, along with co-stars Felicity Huffman, Amanda Peet and Sarah Paulson.

Speaking about CIROC's involvement with the festival recently, the brand's Sean 'Diddy' Combs, said: ''CIROC Vodka and I are very excited to support the Tribeca Film Festival in its mission to celebrate film by connecting fans and filmmakers through their shared passion for storytelling.

''Celebration is at the heart of our brand and we appreciate the opportunity to showcase this passion through partnerships like TFF.''

Two New TV Spots for AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Remind Us It’s a “Make or Break Moment”

Sep 1 2014 10:10am CDT | Source: Collider

I heard that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. improved once the show was transformed by the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and I hope that the new season is good enough to bring back those who abandoned the show earlier in season one (myself included).  As Coulson points out in one of two new TV spots, "This is a make or break moment."  Perhaps working "in the shadows" is a better approach for the series and now that expectations have been lowered, it can bounc ...

‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Season 2 Promos: Fight in the Shadows

Sep 1 2014 8:45am CDT | Source: Screen Rant

There will be multiple comic book-inspired television series to choose from during the upcoming fall TV season; most of them are new to the airwaves, but there are a couple of returnees, including Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. series. The show’s first season was, for many, a decidedly mixed bag that nonetheless ultimately managed to (arguably) justify its season two renewal - in part based on the expectation that the second lap of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s run goes smoother than its ...
