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.
The snow hasn't melted away for most movie-goers (north of the broader that is), yet the summer movie scene is already upon us.
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.
Science fictional World War Two propaganda never looked so good in high definition.
On this day, October 11, 2011 Christmas came early for every fanboy, geek, and true believer of all ages.
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.
