Did Avengers: Age of Ultron negate the one thing that makes Ant-Man special?

21 May 2015 11:15 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

James Garcia on how Avengers: Age of Ultron accidentally eliminated the one thing that makes Ant-Man stand apart from the crowd. Be warned, Age of Ultron spoilers abound…

For Avengers: Age of Ultron, director Joss Whedon was faced with several enormously difficult tasks; he had to make a riveting follow-up to his much beloved first Avengers team-up, give each of the film’s new and returning cast members their due, and spend some of that screentime laying the groundwork for several upcoming Marvel projects as well. While he managed, for the most part, to succeed in those three tasks, he also inadvertently stepped on one of the only things that makes Ant-Man – the Avenger up to bat – stand apart from his McU brethren.

The lead has been buried in the film’s marketing in favor of selling audiences on the rather goofy premise, but at Ant-Man‘s core is a story about fathers and daughters. »

Watch: Damon Lindelof Plays “Save or Kill”, Is Forced to Choose Star Wars or Trek

21 May 2015 10:32 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

At the recent Tomorrowland press day I landed an exclusive video interview with screenwriter Damon Lindelof. As most of you know. the film stars George Clooney as Frank, a disillusioned boy-genius who teams up with Casey (Britt Robertson), a curious and optimistic scientifically-inclined teenager, to discover the secrets of the enigmatic place known as “Tomorrowland”. The film also stars Hugh LaurieTim McGrawJudy Greer, Kathryn HahnKeegan-Michael Key, and Thomas Robinson and was written by Lindelof and Brad Bird, from a story by Lindelof & Bird & Jeff Jensen. While I’ll be posting what Lindelof had to say about the making of Tomorrowland on Friday, today I wanted to let you watch him play “Save or Kill.” If you haven’t seen it yet, the game reveals which franchises, characters or bands someone would choose when pitted against another of equal value.

Our second look at 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron' digs deeper into the film's flaws

19 May 2015 4:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

During the heyday of "Buffy The Vampire Slayer," I was an active advocate for studios to pick up on the wonder that was Joss Whedon. Watching "Avengers: Age Of Ultron," it feels like that is exactly what we were asking for when we asked for him to be in charge of our pop culture. And I mean that in both positive and negative ways. Joss Whedon has a great ear for clever dialogue, and that can be a wee bit of a curse. There is something about the way he writes that can make it feel like he's afraid to fully engage in some of the bigger emotion. When you're doing 22 episodes of a television series, you can take one episode to shift the tone to something darker, more somber, and it feels appropriate. In a 140 minute film, you can only find moments to downshift, and when it's surrounded by non-stop wisecracks, »

Black Panther's Mission In Captain America: Civil War Revealed

18 May 2015 7:11 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

One of the biggest reveals left to connect to Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) is how Marvel will tie the hero in to the already-established McU. Joss Whedon.s The Avengers: Age of Ultron had major nods to the character, with discussions about his homeland of Wakanda, and the introduction of a regular foil in Ulysses Klaw (Andy Serkis). But how would he fit in to Captain America: Civil War, his debut McU film? We.re starting to get answers. Umberto Gonzalez of Heroic Hollywood (finally, he has an outlet we can source) reports that Black Panther (Boseman) will be "on the hunt" for The Winter Soldier, the confused "villain" introduced in the second Captain America film, who also happens to be Steve Rogers. best friend, Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan). Barnes ended The Winter Soldier on the run. He had rescued Captain America from a potentially fatal drowning. And he was »

Avengers: Age of Ultron, Sexism and Hollywood

17 May 2015 3:12 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anthony Stokes on Avengers: Age of Ultron, Sexism and Hollywood…

Like many, I feel as though Hollywood has a major diversity problem, with the status quo being handsome white males.  Look no further than Avengers: Age of Ultron as an example. Marvel Studios has been trying to diversify the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the limited amount of characters in its arsenal that are people of colour, but the film could serve as a microcosm of what’s wrong with the industry. I think women, homosexuals, and minorities should have larger representation, especially in blockbusters that are supposed to appeal to every culture. But what I don’t like is the pettiness of some groups that take every chance they get to proclaim something misogynistic, racist, or homophobic in order to get their message out, while making people want to distance themselves from the cause due to their hyperbole.

Us Weekend Box-Office Report – May 15-17 2015

17 May 2015 2:25 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

This weekend saw two massive movies open at the Us box-office. Competing for the crown of top spot across North America were the Barden Bellas of Pitch Perfect 2, who faced off agains the bad-ass beasts of Mad Max: Fury Road.

So, who was the victor?

Well, in what seems to me to be quite surprising news, the Elizabeth Banks directed Pitch Perfect 2 managed to fend off Tom Hardy’s band of road warriors quite easily taking a massive $70.3 million at the domestic box-office over the three days, while George Miller’s sequel/ reboot of his 1970s classic did manage to squeeze into the number two spot with $44.4 million in the bank, from a budget of a reported $150 million. Yep. Though it was second on this week’s chart it is the biggest opening for a George Miller movie (and he has directed two Happy Feet movies), and it »

Box Office: 'Mad Max: Fury Road' no match for the Pitches of 'Pitch Perfect 2'

17 May 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

American loves its Pitches.  Elizabeth Banks' "Pitch Perfect 2" opened to a massive $70 million this weekend easily taking out competition such as "Avengers: Age of Ultron" and "Mad Max: Fury Road."  "Perfect 2's" debut is which is 5 times the size of the original's wide expansion of $14.8 million in 2012 and a record for a movie musical.  Granted, that's a loose definition of "movie musical," but it's certainly more contextually appropriate than the previous record holder, "8 Mile" which earned $51.2 million in 2002.  With over $108 million worldwide in less than 10 days you can expect the announcement for a third installment in the a cappella franchise any day now. Finding its own ferocious fan base in the second slot was George Miller's "Mad Max: Fury Road."  The Warner Bros. release took in $44.4 million domestically and $65 million overseas.  That's a solid start for the action flick which reportedly cost $220 million.  "Fury Road" only earned »

Box Office: ‘Pitch Perfect 2′ Zooms Over ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ for Huge $64 Million Weekend

16 May 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Universal’s tuneful sequel “Pitch Perfect 2″ is far surpassing expectations with a projected $64 million weekend, putting more than $20 million ahead of “Mad Max: Fury Road,” which should end up at around $41 million.

The mighty combo finally toppled “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” which ruled the last two frames and should still see a solid $37 million this weekend.

Pitch Perfect 2″ is another strong vote for the power of women at box office, following Universal’s success earlier this year with “Fifty Shades of Grey.” Earlier this week, box office observers were estimating an opening just over $40 million.

Warner Bros.’ reboot of George Miller’s “Mad Max” saga has garnered rapturous reviews for its visually stunning action sequences, but has a steeper climb due to its “R” rating — and possibly the fact that the last installment of the saga came out 30 years ago. Starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, “Mad Max” is screening at 3,702 locations. »

‘Pitch Perfect 2,’ ‘Mad Max’ Soaring to $50 Million Openings at Box Office

15 May 2015 3:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Universal’s singing sequel “Pitch Perfect 2″ is in a hot race with “Mad Max: Fury Road” at the U.S. weekend box office, with both films eyeing strong launches of $50 million — enough to dethrone the mighty “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

Early Friday estimates, based on matinee numbers, showed the Anna Kendrick-Rebel Wilson musical connecting solidly with audiences at 3,427 locations with around $20 million to $22 million Friday. Should those numbers hold, “Pitch Perfect 2″ would finish in the $48 million to $52 million range.

Warner Bros.’ “Fury Road” is close behind with $20 million on Friday. The R-rated actioner, starring Tom Hardy, is expected to land in the $50 million range.

Co-starring Charlize Theron, “Mad Max” is screening at 3,702 locations.

After winning back-to-back weekends domestically, Disney-Marvel’s “Ultron” is locked in third place with an impressive $35 million to $38 million for the frame.

If the estimates hold up, the weekend will be the first »

Avengers: Age of Ultron hits $1 billion at the global box office

15 May 2015 11:46 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Avengers: Age of Ultron has reached a box office milestone today, with the Joss Whedon-directed superhero sequel becoming the twenty-first film to pass the $1 billion mark world wide, and the third Marvel Studios movie to hit ten figures after The Avengers and Iron Man 3.

It’s taken twenty-four days for Age of Ultron to reach a billion, some seven days longer than Fast & Furious 7’s record-breaking feat last month (and five days more than its predecessor in 2012). Furious 7 remains some $460 million ahead of the Avengers sequel worldwide, although Age of Ultron leads the way in terms of domestic box office and should find itself cracking the all-time global top ten when the dust settles on this weekend.

Box Office: Avengers Age Of Ultron Joins The Billion Dollar Club

15 May 2015 9:44 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Disney and Marvel have another movie in the billion-dollar club. After breaking records in China this week with a $33.9 million opening, Avengers: Age Of Ultron has gone on to pass the $1 billion mark at the global box office on its 24th day of release. Only two other Marvel movies have enjoyed this success (Avengers Assemble and Iron Man 3), but it's actually the eighth Disney release to surpass the billion dollar threshold. The Joss Whedon directed flick still has a ways to go to catch the latest Fast & Furious instalment though, which is currently sitting on a whopping $1.47 billion. An impressive feat no doubt... but do you think Avengers: Age Of Utron deserves this massive box office haul? »
