SUPERHERO MOVIE UPDATES

the fuck are you talking about? did you work on the movie or some shit or are you just posting nonsense for no apparent reason
Nope. Just having fun running Movie analytics. But, what, nonsense? A quick fact-check will tell you that "Thor-Ragnarok" trailer will likely max-out at 28 million youtube views. Still, 3 million view-counts ahead of it's nearest 2017 neighbor, which would be Justice League, at 25 million views.
So, the rest is just speculative. "Less is more". I think. That Thor teaser-trailer did it's job of getting everyone super-hyped and anticipated... (for the underdog superhero movie of the year).... soo....

soooo..... why should Disney-Marvel blow another 10/20 million on marketing, when they already got the job done? Just thinking out loud here.

Ok, Thor: Ragnarok just surpassed the 30 million view count. So... I was wrong. Thing still has legs. However, if one reads the Youtube comments, it is indeed because because people keep rewatching it as a Led Zeppelin music vid. + the Hela bad-assery.

Still, that's pretty good, no?

Saw the free advance screening of "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2" at the Varsity Cinema last night. Anyone that didn't have passes stood in the rush line and everyone got in without problems. Actor Michael Rooker (Yondu) was also there pluggin the movie before it started. Can't wait to see it again at Scotiabank's IMAX theatre on Cheap Tuesday.

Don't wanna be too critical, but I feel it was on par with the first one. Some may disagree because the novelty has worn off, but I felt it was just as good as the original.

I get the feeling you and me are a little more on the "charitable viewer" side...;)


Looking forward to it! Thanks for the review

Inhumans cast photo (ugh)



not impressed. Medusa is worst. I'm hoping her hair is actually all CG in the show and the above is just what they did for a costume shot.

So they showed actual Infinity Wars footage at D23:

http://io9.gizmodo.com/the-first-footage-from-avengers-infinity-war-blows-awa-1796948476

The footage began with probably a two-minute intro of footage from the first several movies, all focusing on the Infinity Stones we’ve seen so far. Then, the Marvel Studios logo, and on to the new stuff.


The Guardians of the Galaxy are flying around. “Put on your mean faces,” Star-Lord says, because he expects something nasty. There has been crazy destruction, and then a body smashes up against their ship. “Get it away,” Rocket says. They bring the body in and it’s Thor. (Spoilers for Ragnarok, we guess?) Mantis wakes him up and Thor jumps up and exclaims “Who the hell are you guys?”

Next we see the Guardians with Thor, flying to another planet, and when they arrive—again, it’s just massive destruction again. They all know something is very wrong.


Cut to Earth. Scarlet Witch is moving around some cars or something and a female voiceover says “Death follows him like a shadow.” Loki emerges and presents the Tesseract to someone who is taller than him.


Cut to Queens and the hairs on the arm of a young Peter Parker stand up on end. He turns around in fear and we see a ship flying toward a planet we assume is Earth. “We have one advantage,” Tony Stark says. “He’s coming to us.” As the ship crashes, we see Mantis, Iron Man, Star-Lord, Doctor Strange, and a few others characters in total shock.

“Fun really isn’t something one considers when balancing the universe,” a voice says. Gamora turns around in total horror. “But this puts a smile on my face.” Star-Lord: “Oh no.” And out of a black hole emerges the purple madman, Thanos.

A fight begins. Doctor Strange is putting down platforms and Star-Lord is jumping off them, shooting his guns. Cut to Spider-Man, in his new suit revealed at the end of Homecoming, jumping through the air. A shot of Vision behind bars. A shot of a Wakandan army which includes Bucky. Captain America comes out of shadows with a full beard. Black Widow is shown with blonde hair. Iron Man has new, very sleek armor. Someone is using the Hulkbuster armor. Just a huge montage of shots.


Peter Parker is on the ground very hurt. “I’m sorry Tony,” he says behind tears with Iron Man holding his head. Thanos grabs Thor’s head and squeezes. Then Thanos, in the heat of battle with the Infinity Gauntlet on his hand, uses the power of the two stones he has (Purple and Blue, I think) to grab a moon. He starts to drag it toward whatever planet everyone is standing on. The debris starts to fly and... cut to title card.


Avengers: Infinity War opens May 4, 2018.

^ I will avoid all trailers for AVENGERS INFINITY WARS, but I admit a read a bit of the scene descriptions when I saw that article last week (moment of weakness), and the descriptions sound incredible.

One comment I read was that it was like playing with action figures when you were a kid. Getting all of them out and making up incredible scenarios and bashing them together.......and then someone made an actual movie based on that. Which is awesome!

Is there a video out there that shows the D3 footage? Only video I can find doesn't have what they describe in the article.
No videos. They have not released the footage themselves and did not allow audience to film it. Haven't seen that anyone managed to secretly film it so I bet they took away devices.

Seriously, though, why would you want to see any of this footage prior to seeing the actual movie?

I close my eyes and plug my ears now when trailers play at the theatre for movies that I don't need to be convinced to see. I wish I could make myself forget the written scene descriptions.
