Director John Carney (Once) narrates a scene from his new film, Begin Again. Starring Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo, the scene shows the first time the two characters meet. I haven’t seen it yet but I’ve heard it’s great.
Mark Ruffalo might be on everyone’s radar for his role as the Hulk in Marvel’s Avengers franchise, but he’s in theaters right now with a smaller film. Begin Again is an indie film with the 46-year-old actor playing a recently-fired record executive who comes across a broken-hearted musician played by Keira Knightley. Ruffalo spoke with The Wall Street Journal about the film and his thoughts on the two main characters maintaining a platonic relationship in this very un-Hollywood ending to the story.

It might surprise you that Keira Knightley, who just won the role of the female lead in Paramount's new Jack Ryan film (opposite Chris Pine), used to suffer from anxiety while filming.
Keira Knightley earned Academy Award and Golden Globe Award nominations for her portrayal of Elizabeth Bennet in Joe Wright's version of Pride & Prejudice, based on Jane Austen’s novel, also for Focus Features. Two years later, she was a Golden Globe and BAFTA Award nominee for her performance as Cecilia Tallis in Atonement, again directed by Joe Wright and for Focus Features, based on the novel by Ian McEwan.
Gillian Jacobs had to forget her inhibitions for her cameo in the new indie Seeking a Friend at the End of the World. The actress, who also plays Britta on NBC’s Community, plays a waitress who becomes involved in a end-of-the-world kissing fest... ok, orgy.
Looks like Steve Carell is steering away from light comedy. The former Office star is starring in the dark comedy Seeking A Friend for the End of the World.
In Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, Keira Knightley's character Penny joins the ranks of cinema's Manic Pixie Dream Girls. Not familiar with the term? Coined by film critic Nathan Rabin to describe the type of free-spirited, indie-music loving, quirky young girls who seem to only exist in movies to open up emotionally hollow men (like Natalie Portman's character in Garden State and Zooey Deschannel's in 500 Days of Summer), Knightley's version of the MPDG serves as inspiration to Steve Carrell's character in the film, who is trying to come to terms with the failures in his ...
