Owen Wilson & Zach Galifianakis in YOU ARE HERE
“I just continued the process of making the movie. I treated it as a screening,” "Mad Men" creator Matthew Weiner told EW about the less than enthusiastic response to "Are You Here" (retitled from "You Are Here") at TIFF last year. He adds that the finished movie is “actually quite a bit different than it was at Toronto.” But will it work better? We'll find out, with the first trailer for the film landing today.

Mad Men
It might not be the pop culture phenomenon that it once was (the grabbier, faster likes of “True Detective” and “Game Of Thrones” having surpassed it at the nation’s watercoolers), but last Sunday saw the return of “Mad Men,” and if the seventh season premiere was anything to go by, it’s as good as it ever was. Matthew Weiner’s show, about the lives of the employees of a Madison Avenue ad agency in the 1960s (and in particular, the alienated, self-reinventing golden boy Don Draper, played to star-making effect by Jon Hamm, and Elisabeth Moss’s secretary-turned-high-flyer Peggy Olsen) has been a critical favorite since it launched in 2007 and almost singlehandedly made AMC a serious home for prestige drama (paving the way for network-mates “Breaking Bad” and “The Walking Dead” in the process).

Owen Wilson & Zach Galifianakis in YOU ARE HERE
Matthew Weiner’s “You Are Here” is the worst “Mad Men”-related disaster since Sally Draper walked in on her father and Linda Cardellini going at it last season. And that was pretty bad, especially since Sally has already barged in on several passionate trysts—happily, not always involving her old man. “You Are Here” is far, far more soul-crushing: a supposed passion project that premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival with an air of mystery. Would Weiner’s first feature be a comedy? Would it have the feel of the modern television classic? Or perhaps seem linked to Weiner’s sitcom roots? And would it be any good? The answers to those questions are yes, no, yes, and my goodness, no.

While he may give off the impression of an artist who works in secrecy and mystery, shrouding this projects and process with an impenetrable veil, it would appear that Wong Kar-Wai has no problem opening up. Hell, the man braved the world of Comic-Con last month to help promote his forthcoming "The Grandmaster," and with movie now due for release in a few weeks, he's doing the press rounds in the United States. And it is resulting in some pretty fascinating stuff from the director.

You Can Keep Asking, But Matthew Weiner Isn't Bringing Back Sal On 'Mad Men'

In case you weren't aware, the sixth season of "Mad Men" is mere weeks away, which means everyone at the office is going to be talking about the latest escapades of Don Draper until you want to burn your computer down when the inevitable cocktail theme party Evite arrives. But oddly enough, one long-axed character from the show continues to endure: Sal. Played by Bryan Batt, he was the lovable, flaming (and closeted) illustrator who was shockingly fired from Sterling Cooper during season three, never to appear on the show again. And while some continue to hold out hope he'll be back, don't count on it.

'Mad Men' Creator Matthew Weiner Says Peggy Olson Will Be Back For Season 6

Of the handful of enduring questions remaining from the end of the excellent fifth season of "Mad Men," perhaps the biggest surrounded the fate of Peggy Olson, played by Elisabeth Moss. Having had enough of being overlooked and ill-treated at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce (RIP), she jumped to a new job at Cutler Gleason and Chaough, which many figured meant Peggy's arc was done. And indeed, her brief appearance in the season finale seemed like a farewell, with her meeting Don who declared he was proud of her, before she left to go on the road for her job. But there is still more Peggy to come in season six.

Brewing for a while, "Mad Men" creator Matthew Weiner's feature film debut has been through a few different incarnations. Way, back in 2009 Jennifer Aniston, Bradley Cooper and Zach Galifianakis were the first names to line up for the movie that was in very advance planning to shoot last year. But in the fall of 2010, new names cropped up with Jack Black, Matt Dillon and Renée Zellweger all being eyed. But riding off the heat of the massive season five opener for "Mad Men," Weiner is building up his cast again and it's pretty strong.
