Every summer the box-office landscape has that one movie that's on an entirely different level than anything else out there. That one movie people of all age groups will go to see and enjoy regardless of demographics. That one movie that other studios know will be such a unbeatable juggernaut that the box-office that they don't dare release their own films till weeks later.
Just a mere six months ago shame had fallen upon the house of Marvel after their prized Armoured Avenger tainted their reputation. A heraldry that had been synonymous with the upmost of excellence was no more as the third coming of the Iron Man forsake those that came before.
San Diego Comic Con might be done for another summer but that doesn't mean the geeking out has to end also. Oh no true believers, the geeking out is far from over. Today citizens of Midgard were graced with the first full new trailer for Thor: The Dark World, and all the nine realms rejoiced.
Earth's mightiest heroes defeated their box office adversaries this summer and now Marvel & Disney are back crush their home video completion with The Avengers on Blu-Ray. And much like the Avengers themselves there are many different options to choose from when deciding which version to add to your personal movie library.
Since Iron Man (2008), many have patiently waited as Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) slowly assembled (tee hee hee) a team of far-flung superheroes, one at a time. We knew this was coming. As much fun as those post-credits recruitment scenes were, I regarded them with dread.
The first weekend of May typically marks the opening of the summer movie season. Normally, this time of year is when the first of many films begin their theatrical release in hopes of reaching that blockbuster status. Not this year.
It's official: February 29 (aka Leap Day) has been claimed Geek Day.
On this day, October 11, 2011 Christmas came early for every fanboy, geek, and true believer of all ages.
With a mediocre summer movie landscape filled with tired pirates, repeat bachelor parties, an unfunny fighter pilot wearing jewellery, rusty scrap metal in slowmo, and bland cowboys & aliens, there was an unlikely film about a Norwegian legend and a rainbow bridge that hammered out all that competition; and now its available for your home entertainment viewing pleasure.
The trailer may of only lasted just over a minute but those short 66 seconds that was enough to satisfy (and tease) decades worth of Marvel fans. Well, at least this Marvel fan anyway.
