Fearing the all too often trailer leaks the internet is known for these days, Disney/Marvel came up with a secret plan to debut their first teaser of the upcoming Marvel's Captain America: Civil War on Jimmy Kimmel this Tuesday night with help from Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.). And damn was it incredible.
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.
This summer's biggest... no scratch that. This year's biggest box office success has now arrived on home video.
This time last year Marvel Studios kicked off the summer movie season with the pinnacle superhero movie experience in Marvel's The Avengers.
Black Sabbath are famous for the song "Iron Man" which was used heavily in the campaign for the first film starring Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark and his alter ego.
After an interstellar team building vacation in New York this past summer the armoured Avenger is making his way back to the west coast for his third solo feature film. Yes Marvel and movie fans alike your favourite Shellhead is returning to the big screen yet again. The Golden Avenger is... okay enough with the fanboy nicknames.
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.
