COLLIDER – Grief is a part of life. No matter who you are or where you go, you’re going to lose someone or something you love somewhere along the way. Such is the basis for Sorry for Your Loss, the new series that explore the process of grieving and learning to go on with your life. Elizabeth Olsen stars (and executive produces) as Leigh, a young woman who has to pick herself up and start over again after her husband dies unexpectedly.
The 10-episode series premieres on Facebook Watch Tuesday, September 18th with four all new episodes. Two new episodes will drop on the streaming platform every Tuesday at 6PM PT/9PM ET .
Written and created by playwright, Kit Steinkellner (Z: The Beginning of Everything), with James Pondsoldt (The Spectacular Now) executive producing and directing multiple episodes, Sorry for Your Loss also stars Kelly Marie Tran (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Jovan Adepo (Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan), Mamoudou Athie (The Get Down), and Janet McTeer (Jessica Jones). The series will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival before heading to Facebook Watch. See the first trailer below.
Here’s the official synopsis:
“Sorry For Your Loss is a half hour drama on Facebook Watch that stars Elizabeth Olsen as Leigh Shaw, a young widow struggling to put her life back together in the wake of her husband’s unexpected death. The show is simultaneously devastating and uplifting, with grounded, flawed characters desperate to find humor anywhere they can. The series dives into grief as an unavoidable, universal, transformative part of life. Leigh’s journey will teach us that grief is not something merely to endure, medicate away or “muscle through,” but an essential part of the human experience.”
Leigh (Elizabeth Olsen) is trying to move on.
In Facebook Watch’s Sorry For Your Loss, Olsen (who also serves as an executive producer) plays a young widow who, following the sudden death of her husband, finds her life — and every relationship in it — changed by the event. Written and created by playwright Kit Steinkellner (Amazon’s Z: The Beginning of Everything), the half-hour drama also stars Kelly Marie Tran (in her first role since joining the Star Wars franchise), Jovan Adepo (The Leftovers), Mamoudou Athie (Unicorn Store), and Janet McTeer (Marvel’s Jessica Jones). The 10-episode half-hour series will premiere on Facebook Watch on Sept. 18.
The Avengers: Infinity War alum stars as Leigh Shaw, who struggles to live without her husband, Matt (Mamoudou Athie). But don’t call her weak: Leigh is tough and fierce (and sometimes admittedly judgmental). She knows she can be resilient, but grief complicates her already complicated life.
E! NEWS – Still reeling from the final moments in Avengers: Infinity War?
E! News has an exclusive look at Paul Bettany, Chadwick Boseman, Josh Brolin, Chris Evans, Danai Gurira, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Elizabeth Olsen and Sebastian Stan filming the devastating finale, culminating in—spoiler alert!—Thanos activating the Infinity Gauntlet and snapping his fingers, wiping out half the galaxy’s population.
Black Panther? Bye. Groot? Gone. Spider-Man? See ya.
The final battle occurs after Thanos goes on a smash and grab across the universe to collect all six Infinity Stones, giving him unparalleled power. The Mind Stone is embedded in Vision’s forehead, bringing Thanos to Wakanda—where the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy and a host of other superheroes are preparing to fight him to the death. “When Thanos shows up, we really wanted to make this the most powerful moment ever,” executive producer Trinh Tran says in a bonus featurette (included on the digital and Blu-ray editions of the blockbuster). Of course, deciding which heroes would vanish was a challenge. “In terms of our choices about who Thanos would end up eradicating with his snap, it was very story-focused. How do we pay off each individual character’s storyline most profoundly?” co-director Anthony Russo asks. “The first person to go is Bucky Barnes, and it’s shot from Captain America’s perspective.”

CNN – Marvel’s Avengers have taken on aliens, robots and even each other. If the latest trailer for the Disney studio’s new superhero movie is any indication of what’s next, they are about to take on their greatest foe yet: Thanos.
The imposing (and quite purple) space villain flexes his muscles in film’s new trailer, which premiered on Friday morning. The preview includes your standard Marvel comic book action mixed with comedy, but Thanos’ looming presence sets the scene what what appears to be a major battle on the horizon.
“The entire time I knew him he only ever had one goal: To wipe out half the universe,” Zoe Saldana’s Gamora is heard saying in the trailer. “If gets all the Infinity Stones, he can do it with the snap of his fingers. Just like that.”
“Tell me his name again,” Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man asks.
Gamora responds in a whisper, “Thanos.”
The two-minute trailer, which has racked up close to a million views on YouTube in less than three hours, features nearly every hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which includes the crew in “Guardians of the Galaxy” and Doctor Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch.
A bearded Captain America is seen taking on Thanos in hand-to-hand combat, Spider-Man is swinging through debris, and Thor finds his head nearly being crushed by the villain. The glimpses of our heroes in peril led some fans online to fear that some Marvel characters may not make it out of alive.
Marvel Studios’ latest hero, Black Panther, played by Chadwick Boseman, is featured prominently in the new trailer.
“Black Panther” has been one of Marvel’s biggest and most critically acclaimed hits since it opened last month. The film, which is the first Marvel project directed by an African-American, broke records on its opening weekend at the box office and has made more than $1.1 billion worldwide.
“Avengers: Infinity War” looks to be the one of the biggest films Marvel has ever produced, which is saying something since the brand has had 18 straight number one openings and has grossed more than $14.5 billion globally.
“Avengers: Infinity War” hits theaters on April 27..
HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Ingrid Goes West won the award for best first feature at the Film Independent Spirit Awards, which were handed out Saturday in Santa Monica.
The film beat out fellow nominees Columbus, Menashe, Oh Lucy! and Patti Cake$.
Director Matt Spicer accepted the award alongside the cast and crew. “All these people on stage made this movie happen. But rather than list a bunch of people, I just wanted to dedicate this award to one person in particular, and that is [star] Aubrey Plaza,” he said. “Casting Aubrey in this movie was the best decision I ever made as a director.”
Ingrid Goes West follows Ingrid Thorburn (Plaza), a woman who flees Pennsylvania for Los Angeles to befriend Taylor Sloane (Elizabeth Olsen), a socialite who just so happens to be Ingrid’s latest obsession. Jared Ian Goldman, Aubrey Plaza, Tim White, Trevor White, Adam Mirels and Robert Mirels produced the film.
The 33rd Film Independent Spirit Awards took place in a tent next to the Santa Monica Pier and aired on IFC on Saturday, March 3. Nick Kroll and John Mulraney returned as hosts for the second year in a row.
/FILM – For years, fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been calling for a solo movie centered on Black Widow, the ass-kicking super spy played by Scarlett Johansson. And while there have been a lot of vague claims of support from the people in charge at Marvel, we’ve yet to see her suit up for her own film.
But now there may be a film on the horizon that focuses on all of the prominent women characters in the MCU, not just Black Widow. Read Marvel Studios president and mega-producer Kevin Feige‘s comments about the possibility of an all-female Marvel movie below.
io9 was at a recent press conference for Thor: Ragnarok, where Ragnarok actress Tessa Thompson – who plays the sword-wielding Valkyrie in that movie – told a story about how she led a charge that Valkyrie herself would have been proud of:
“Recently, I marched up with a couple of other women that work in Marvel and we went to Kevin, ‘What about a movie with some female super heroes? Like all of them?’”
Feige jumped in to reveal what happened:
“It was a pretty amazing moment to be somewhere and have your shoulder get tapped and turn around every female hero we have is standing there going, ‘How about it?’ And I said, ‘Yes.’”

DEADLINE NEWS – A HILARIOUS video has captured Avengers actress Elizabeth Olsen struggling to pronounce very rude Scottish slang.
In the side-splitting clip, uploaded by fellow actress Jade Olivia Gordon, Olsen can be seen reading the list of phrases – including “baws” – from a screen and cracking up laughing.
Olsen is in Scotland filming the latest Avengers film, and has clearly taken the opportunity to get familiar with the local dialect.
At the start of the minute-long video, the actress can be seen saying: “She gobbled that jibby-jabber” before laughing uncontrollably.
After a few seconds, she looks down at her phone and says “baws – that’s testicles.” She then repeats “baws” again before sniggering at the sound of the word.
Olsen’s pronunciation of the words comes out more like “bozz”.
E! ONLINE – This was bound to happen eventually.
Avengers: Infinity War doesn’t hit theaters until May 4, 2018, but E! News has fans’ first look at Vision (Paul Bettany) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) sharing a tender moment in the adventure movie. The two actors were snapped filming on set in Edinburgh, Scotland, Tuesday.
Bettany, 45, and Olsen, 28, filmed the same scene “eight or nine times,” according to an eyewitness. It began with Vision opening the window curtains using his special abilities. Moments later, Scarlet Witch appeared by his side “and they get very close and finally kissed.”
