Ten years, 18 movies, 30,000 visual effects (someone actually counted), and multi-billion-dollar grosses the envy of every movie studio in Hollywood (except Disney, of course), the Marvel brand can do almost no wrong when it comes to delivering spandexed superhero punch-ups of the mainstream, crowd-pleasing variety. The 19th – and by no means last – entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), the Anthony and Joe Russo-directed Avengers: Infinity War, delivers everything moviegoers have come to expect, sometimes even love about Marvel: layered superhero characters, screen-splitting, epic-scaled action, and a cannily calibrated mix of drama and comedy, usually with the fate of the world, the galaxy, and sometimes even the universe at stake. It’s practically impossible to get bigger, more meaningful stakes wise than the known universe (unless we bring the multiverse into the discussion, but that’s for another time and place). Be prepared: Avengers: Infinity War may be the darkest, most downbeat, least emotionally gratifying entry in the entire MCU canon. The stakes feel real, the threats to our favorite superhero characters even more real.
With the release of Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War so close, we are all dying to get any hint of a clue as to the plot we’re all on hyper-alert for anything that remotely feels like a firm detail. And in the latest TV spot, there is a split-second flash of Iron Man and Star-Lord looking quite tense.
After Disney/Pixar released the original Incredibles in 2004 and pulled in over $633 million at the worldwide box office fans were all anxiously waiting for a sequel. It’s been a long 14 years, but at last, we are getting closer to seeing it… and not much has changed. No real passage of time, just a different role for Mr. Incredible, whose now playing Mr. Mom to a freshly powered baby Jack-Jack while Elastigirl gets to be a worldwide hero thanks to an image-conscious new character (voiced by Bob Odenkirk) who wants to “bring supers back into the sunlight”.
A cache of new Deadpool 2 International Posters have been making the rounds on twitter teasing that the Merc with a Mouth isn’t coming alone when he arrives in theaters May 18th, 2018. The film’s been on quite a crazy road from having its release date moved up to having to head back to Vancouver for reshoots.

Netflix has announced that it has ordered Season 3 of Marvel’s Jessica Jones just a month after Season 2 was released. With Disney’s streaming service on the cusp of happening, it wasn’t immediately clear how this Netflix/Marvel TV series would be impacted since it’s bound to be a lot further down the road than the previously announced Punisher second season and the third season of Daredevil, but now fans can breathe a sigh of relief.
A Quiet Place is based on a world where you can’t make a sound unless you want to be torn apart by some ugly ass monster. While the movie acts as though people know how to live a good life without dying, the reality is that most of us would be killed within the first month. (Or as many have figured on Twitter, their first fart.) Let’s face it we are creatures of habit and if we forget our cell phone or lose our electricity we have a complete meltdown. Here are a just a few reasons that you might die.
No one could ever claim that the 1980s was the first decade to address the theory of time travel. As any steam punk aficionado would be happy to share, HG Wells put the idea to paper damn near a century before Ronald Reagan took office. No one could even claim that the idea itself hasn’t gone back to the days of cave dwelling. If you can say that you wouldn’t go back in time to change at least once thing, you’re lying to yourself. For shame! All of that being said, when it comes to time travel, not many decades have done it as well as the 1980s. From The Terminator to Time Bandits to Back to the Future, and a dozen more, there are few silver screen flicks that bring back that sense of wonder, hope, and nostalgia that the 80s time traveling films carried along with them. Among those brilliant stories, and with no disrespect to Marty McFly, stand two of the most excellent dudes to ever surf the time stream: Bill S. Preston, Esq., and Ted “Theodore” Logan – You may know them better by their band name, Wyld Stallyns. In case that still isn’t ringing any bells, here’s a quick refresher. (more…)
