Mavel drops another Avengers: Endgame Trailer

To the surprise of many this morning Disney dropped another trailer for Avengers: Endame as well as an awesome new poster! Check them out below!

The end of Avengers: Infinity War ended with half of the universe decimated and this trailer does not shy away from that point.  It is sopping with an end of the world vibe – everyone’s favorite heroes operating at the end of their ropes.  However, this is not the first trailer like this.  The first trailer showed lots of the same, showing that Disney is really leaning into audience’s need for a resolution to the “dusting” of many beloved characters.

With the launch of the trailer was a new poster tweeted out by the official Avengers twitter page – with the big bad Thanos lingering in the background.

The long awaited Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26th – just a few weeks away.

March 8-10 Box Office Report

We just finished with the first weekend that featured Marvel’s first film of 2019, and the box office reflects it!

Captain Marvel just released to great success!  The film became the number one opening weekend origin story superhero movie, and became the 10th biggest opening for a comic book based superhero film of all time!  This puts Captain Marvel in such company as The Dark Knight, Black Panther, and Avengers: Infinity War.

The success of Captain Marvel comes on the heels of 2 months of “controversy” claiming that actress Brie Larson did not want to have white males reviewing her film.  Outlets running these headlines created this fantasy in order to try and hinder the box office of a film with a strong female character in the lead, and they failed.  They failed miserably in misogynistic mission to drag Larson and her film through the mud.  The film made over $153 Million!

The rest of the films in the top 5 box office positions did not make much, but that is to be expected.  Captain Marvel was the only newly released film this past weekend, therefore all of the movies were only able to get the scraps left over by the new Marvel film.

Check out the box office breakdown below!

No 1. Captain Marvel – $153,433,423 in its first weekend of release.

No 2. How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World $14,685,005. Bringing its total gross in its 3rd weekend to $119,651,130.

No 3. Tyler Perry’s A Madea Family Funeral $12,465,383 Bringing its total gross in its 2nd weekend to $46,295,193.

No 4. The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part – $3,868,248. Bringing its total gross in its 5th weekend to $97,153,209.

No 5. Alita: Battle Angel – $3,215,344.  Bringing its total gross in its 4th weekend to $78,361,408.

What do you think of this past weekend at the box office?  Are you surprised by the success of Captain Marvel?  Or did you expect it? Leave a comment below and let’s make a discussion out of it.

 

Captain Marvel Review – Not The Best Marvel Movie, Yet A Fun Time At The Theater

Captain Marvel is the newest film in the Marvel franchise, meaning that it is just one film closer to the most anticipated Marvel movie of the year, Avengers: Endgame.  However, this is not just a stepping-stone movie – a placeholder if you will until we get to the main event.  It is a film that manages to stay as engaging and as entertaining as Iron Man, Captain America: The First Avenger, or Dr. Strange was when they first debuted.

Carol Danvers, the superhuman Captain Marvel, is played by Academy Award winner Brie Larson.  While many criticized her when the trailers came out as being very one-note, she fully proves that she can carry not only this film, but will be capable of can acting alongside future Avenger teammates Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), and Chris Evans (Captain America).

Alongside Larson is Samuel L. Jackson reprising his role as the soon to be S.H.I.E.L.D director Nick Fury, Jude Law as Yon-Rogg and Ben Mendelsohn as Talos.  While Jackson and Law turn in performances that as good as you would expect, Mendelsohn surprisingly is the stand out star next to Larson.  His character has a pivotal shift that you would not have expected, and he manages to convincingly portray every turn his character takes.  I would like to go into more details on this but then we are getting into spoiler territory – so just know that you will walk away from Captain Marvel loving his character and hoping that he will have future appearances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
