Was Black Widow's Big Reveal In Avengers 2 Too Much Information?

2 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

This past weekend, Marvel fans across the country flocked to the theaters to finally catch the highly-anticipated Avengers sequel. And like most Marvel movies, it did not disappoint in providing exciting action, quirky humor, and in depth looks at our favorite superheroes. But this time around, the franchise shifted the focus onto characters who aren’t often given the same attention as the leaders of the group, namely Black Widow.  We’ve known Black Widow since 2010’s Iron Man 2, when Natasha Romanoff posed as Tony Stark’s assistant before finally revealing her S.H.I.E.L.D. alliance. Scarlett Johansson has reprised the role in a number of movies, but in Avengers: Age of Ultron, the character had her biggest reveal yet. There are going to be some major spoilers ahead, as we go deeper into exploring what happened with Black Widow in Age »

The Good, The Bad & The Weird Of 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron'

3 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If you heard the sound of cash registers ringing, or saw dumptrucks full of money being driven in the direction of Marvel HQ, that’s because this weekend saw the U.S. release of “Avengers: Age Of Ultron.” Sure, the superhero sequel came in $20 million dollars south of its predecessor (reportedly in part because of the distractions from a big sports weekend), but with $187 million in three days, it still ranks as the second-biggest opening in history, and with another $450 million earned abroad and counting, the movie’s sure to end up as one of the top-grossing movies of all time.  But is it any good? Our review responded with a resounding "I dunno, kind of?" and reactions in general so far have been more mixed than the widely-praised first “Avengers” — some find it a more interesting and strange film, some see it on about the same level, and some »

Avengers: Age of Ultron Opens to $188 Million, Fails to Beat The Avengers

9 hours ago | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

"Avengers: Age of Ultron" hit theaters this weekend, hoping to beat the $207 million domestic debut of "The Avengers" back in 2012. Unfortunately, the sequel fell short, grossing $188 million. But the result is second best opening of all time. Many experts were predicting that "Age of Ultron" had a chance of beating "The Avengers" or at least come in at $200 million. But Saturday night's Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao fight hurt the film in a big way. Moviegoing saw a drop as much as 50% in many areas. Overseas, however, "Age of Ultron" added another $439 million for a worldwide debut of $627 million. It has already surpassed the lifetime earnings of "Captain America" ($371 million), "Thor" ($449 million), "Iron Man" ($583 million) and "Iron Man 2" ($622 million). The sequel cost $250 million to make and is now hoping to beat the $1.5 billion earned by the first film. It has a 75% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes. »

Marvel Cinematic Universe overtakes Harry Potter to become highest-grossing movie franchise of all time

21 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron may have failed to set an opening weekend record with its debut in the States – with the film earning $187.7 million domestically, and pushing its global haul to $627 million – but the Joss Whedon-directed sequel has helped to propel the Marvel Cinematic Universe above the Harry Potter series to become the highest-grossing movie franchise of all time.

As of today, the McU stands on $7.786 billion, with a $708 million average across its eleven instalments (Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avengers, The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Age of Ultron).

Harry Potter has the higher film average on $965 million, but will now have to settle for second place with its eight chapters earning a combined $7.723 billion. James Bond is third with $6.159 billion, although if »

Avengers: Age of Ultron enjoys $187.7 million domestic opening weekend, hits $627 million worldwide

3 May 2015 12:29 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Avengers: Age of Ultron arrived in the States this past Friday, with the film pulling in a whopping $187.7 million domestic opening weekend and pushing its global haul to $627 million after just twelve days.

Despite the impressive U.S. numbers, the film fell short of its predecessor The Avengers, which earned a record $207.4 million back in 2012. Early reports were suggesting that the sequel would go on to set a record with around $220 million over the weekend, but it seems that the Floyd Mayweather / Manny Pacquiao fight took a big chunk out of ticket sales for films across the board.

Age of Ultron may not have set a new record, but Marvel now has the three biggest opening days of all time, with 2013’s Iron Man 3 in third with $174.1 million, while the film has already overtaken the lifetime global earnings of The Incredible Hulk ($263.4 million), Captain America: The First Avenger ($370.6 million »

Time Machine: Paltrow Silvery Oscar Dress at 83rd Academy Awards

1 May 2015 6:03 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Gwyneth Paltrow silver dress on the Oscars' Red Carpet Gwyneth Paltrow at the Academy Awards Donning a shining silver dress, Gwyneth Paltrow arrives at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Paltrow's latest movie, Country Strong, was up for a Best Song Oscar. It lost to the Toy Story 3 ditty "We Belong Together," by Randy Newman. More than a decade ago, Gwyneth Paltrow took home the Best Actress Oscar for John Madden's Shakespeare in Love (1998), a romantic comedy-drama also featuring Joseph Fiennes (as William Shakespeare), Judi Dench, Geoffrey Rush, and this year's Best Actor Oscar winner, Colin Firth (The King's Speech). Paltrow's (moderately) gender-bending Shakespeare in Love heroine remains her only Oscar-nominated performance to date. Directed by Shana Feste, Country Strong fared decently at the U.S. box office, but not as well as some had expected. Besides Gwyneth Paltrow, the cast includes »

The Most Disappointing – Avengers: Age of Ultron

1 May 2015 3:11 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras shares his disappointment over Avengers: Age of Ultron

Even the thought of this column feels like a slaughter waiting to happen. I feel like Sonny Corleone in The Godfather as he exits the car at the toll booth…

I get it. People love movies like Avengers: Age of Ultron. Any negative sentiments are generally greeted with a thousand blasts from every corner of the internet. You’re branded as a hater or a troll. You’re a joyless cynic who couldn’t manage to find an ounce of fun in a pool full of whiskey.

The goal here is to try, in great detail, to explain why Age of Ultron was ultimately disappointing. In fact, one of the most disappointing movies I’ve seen so far this year.

1. It’s a Copy/Paste of the original

Avengers: Age of Ultron suffers the same fate as so many other sequels. »

In defense of Warner Bros.’ “filmmaker-driven” approach to the DC Cinematic Universe

1 May 2015 1:40 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

James Garcia on why Warner Bros.’ “filmmaker-driven” approach to the DC Cinematic Universe is the very best thing for the DC slate, and the superhero genre…

Early this week, THR released a piece on some of the perceived struggles currently happening behind closed doors at Warner Bros. as the studio maps out the burgeoning DC Cinematic Universe, which began with 2013’s Man of Steel, and will jump into high gear once Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad hit theaters next year.

According to the report, Warner Bros.’ approach to the Dccu is rather different than the one taken by rival studio Marvel, who have, of course, paved the way for the contemporary shared movie universe (to the tune of $7 billion and counting). Many have already taken the news as a sign that the Dccu is in trouble, or that WB is taking the “wrong” approach to the material. »

Film Review: ‘As I Am: The Life and Times of DJ Am’

1 May 2015 12:08 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Veteran musicvideo and concert-docu director Kevin Kerslake charts the short, hectic life of a high-flying celebrity disc jockey in “As I Am: The Life and Times of DJ Am,” an entertaining look at a talented turntablist who (for better or worse) pioneered his profession’s attainment of rock-star status in terms of glamour, media attention and economic renumeration. At the same time, there are some notable gaps left in the pic’s posthumous understanding of DJ Am, aka Adam Michael Goldstein, as its flashy surface doesn’t always help us to understand the pure artistic soul he’s depicted as here. Fest, tube and download programmers looking for music-focused features of current rather than strictly historical relevance will find this an easy pick.

Goldstein grew up amid marital discord — it was only in adulthood that he learned that his father wasn’t his biological one — in a wealthy New York family. »

‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ is a big, brash superhero spectacular

1 May 2015 6:54 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Avengers: Age of Ultron

Written and Directed by Joss Whedon

USA, 2015

Avengers: Age of Ultron represents the zenith of Marvel Studios’ Phase 2, the culmination of all the films and television shows that represent the Marvel Cinematic Universe  over the last two years. Like the first film, this superhero team up pulls out all the stops to astound, taking the audience on a thrill ride of almost unrelenting action. All the main players return including some new faces and due to the sheer amount of characters, action set pieces and Marvel references on display, all lamentations over any lack of subtext are eclipsed by the sheer magnitude of superheroic action. Writer/director Joss Whedon keeps things moving quickly and with a wit that shines through the comic book livery to deliver what is essentially pure pop spectacle. Perhaps those who are a little tired of what Marvel is doing should steer »

Is it time for a new Iron Man?

29 April 2015 2:41 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on whether it’s time for a new Iron Man

Sometimes an actor is so perfectly suited for a role you can’t even imagine anyone else in the part. That was certainly the case when we first saw Robert Downey Jr. playing Tony Stark in Marvel’s Iron Man. He had the suave, debonair, devil-may-care attitude and the kind of real life demons that gave Stark the potential for an epic dark side. I doubt there’s a lot of people who watched Iron Man and thought that Marvel hadn’t hit a home run with both the film and their choice to launch their long-awaited Cinematic Universe.

The second Iron Man was an absolutely awful follow-up. A movie that got so much wrong with the same creative team that you began to wonder if the success of the original was little more than dumb luck. Downey »

Paul Rudd is “trying really hard” to be in Captain America: Civil War

29 April 2015 10:21 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen confirming they are also joining the cast of Captain America: Civil War, the cast seems to be ever growing by the day to the point where it’s another Avengers movie before we get Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 & 2. With his movie set for release in the next few months, will we be seeing Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man join the rest of the McU in Captain America: Civil War?

“Um…I don’t know,” he told Uproxx with a smile. “I’m trying really hard to make my case for it.”

Hmmmm. Interesting.

“Avengers: Age of Ultron”: Ranking the films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

28 April 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Folks, t’s almost time for the Avengers to assemble. Yes, with Avengers: Age of Ultron set to hit theaters domestically on Friday, I wanted to take a look at the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe (or McU) so far and rank them in order to see the best of the McU to date. They haven’t made a bad film yet, so that makes this a particularly enjoyable task, basically having to separate the solid from the very good from the great. Count me in for something like that all the time, though today it’s particularly apt to do the McU with Avengers: Age of Ultron fresh in my head from a recent press screening. One thing to keep in mind is that this list is going to change in a hurry. In just a few months, Ant-Man will be the other 2015 release from Marvel, and from then on »

Thor Revisited: “As King of Asgard…”

23 April 2015 12:52 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

[With Avengers: Age of Ultron opening next Friday, I’m taking a look back at the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  These articles do not contain spoilers for unreleased Marvel movies. If you know any spoilers about the unreleased Marvel movies, please do not post them in the comments section.] Iron Man 2 may have stumbled badly, but Marvel didn’t fall. Instead, it took an important step forward with Thor, a movie that tries to be both cautious and ambitious in taking viewers on their biggest leap forward. In 2011, over a decade after X-Men, there was still a level of apprehension with superhero movies. Marvel in particular needed to figure out how to take a completely different superhero and make him live in the same world as another franchise. The plan for The Avengers was truly in motion, and Thor needed to show that the worlds could be connected yet distinct. The unique setting was also a challenge because Thor is a magical space alien. He comes from a different galaxy (or “realm”) and he’s a Norse god. He couldn’t be further away from any other superhero, but he needed to conceivably live in the same universe »

Joss Whedon says Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man was “the best script Marvel ever had”

22 April 2015 12:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During a promotional interview with Buzzfeed ahead of the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron [read our spoiler free ★★★★★ review here], Joss Whedon got onto the topic of Marvel’s next movie Ant-Man, and more specifically Edgar Wright’s original screenplay for the miniature superhero, which he calls “the best script that Marvel ever had.”

“I don’t get it. I thought the script was not only the best script that Marvel had ever had, but the most Marvel script I’d read. I had no interest in Ant-Man. [Then] I read the script, and was like, Of course! This is so good! It reminded me of the books when I read them. Irreverent and funny and could make what was small large, and vice versa. I don’t know where things went wrong. But I was very sad. Because I thought, This is a no-brainer. This is Marvel getting it exactly right. Whatever dissonance that came, »

Iron Man 2 Revisited: “It’s Not about Me. It’s Not about You, Either.”

22 April 2015 12:08 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

[With Avengers: Age of Ultron opening next Friday, I’m taking a look back at the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  These articles do not contain spoilers for unreleased Marvel movies. If you know any spoilers about the unreleased Marvel movies, please do not post them in the comments section.] The Incredible Hulk showed that the Marvel Cinematic Universe needed serious construction, but it didn’t have any of the pieces. Iron Man 2 presents the mess of a studio trying to figure out how to build a universe while also creating a self-contained film that provides its protagonist a strong arc and character development. The movie does neither particularly well, although that didn’t seem to matter as it raked in over $650 million worldwide and landed as the 3rd highest-grossing film (domestically) for 2010. People wanted more of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), they wanted more Marvel flavor, and the studio struggled with both. What follows will mostly sound like a long screed against Iron Man 2, but if you stick with it to the end, I promise I will explain its greatest merits. Iron Man 2 isn’t a good film. It’s watchable, but it’s a wreck »
