Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For got off to a very slow start on Thursday, bringing in just $475,000 from showings that began at 9pm on Thursday. The maudlin teen sudser If I Stay, which started its Thursday showings at 7pm, earned a more respectable $1.1 million and is expected to win the weekend and finish well ahead of the Sin City sequel.THE WICKED + THE DIVINE WILL FEATURE VARIANT COVER BY KEVIN WADA08/22/14 @ 6:30 pm EST
Citing the nine-year gap between the first Sin City film and A Dame to Kill For, many analysts are predicting that the Sin Citysequel is in danger of finishing behind the live-action TMNT film, now in its third weekend, Guardians of the Galaxy, which is in its fourth, and even the quasi-religious football epic, When the Game Stands Tall.
In August of 2005 the first Sin City film roared to a surprising $29.8 million.

TEEN TITANS: TEXTING, TWEETING, AND TRIBUTE BANDS?08/22/14 @ 6:24 pm EST
Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie’s THE WICKED + THE DIVINE #4 will feature a variant cover by She Hulk artist Kevin Wada. This dark and striking interpretation of Baphomet and Badb will be available to order with Diamond Code JUL148049.
Picking up from where the previous issue’s cliffhanger left off, in THE WICKED + THE DIVINE #4 the mystery is solved. But can you guess if pop-god Lucifer likes the answer? Plus, there’s much more to Baal than meets the eye, dear reader. He has secrets you’ll want to know…
"We've been following Laura in her journey into the world of the Gods this arc,” said Gillen. “This takes her right to the heart of it. It's where we've been heading—which immediately sets the stage for what's next. Which is issue 5, the end of the first story, which you have to imagine we have certain special things planned for. And you'd be correct."
THE WICKED + THE DIVINE #4 will hit shelves on 9/17 and can be ordered with Diamond Code JUL140590. Keep an eye out for the special Kevin Wada variant (Diamond Code JUL148049) which will be available on the same day. Final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, 8/25.

THOR: GOD OF THUNDER #25 ASSEMBLES EPIC ARTIST LINEUP FOR GOD-SIZED ISSUE08/22/14 @ 6:07 pm EST
From facetime, to social media and video streaming, writer Will Pfeifer has definitely delivered on his vision to fully immerse Teen Titans into today’s pop culture.
Just look at what’s happened so far: When the Teen Titans saved the school bus full of children in TEEN TITANS #1, the public looked to their “Chirper” feed (a playful take on the real world’s Twitter) to learn of the heroic rescue. #TeenTitansrule!
And when the scuffle between Teen Titan Miguel (A.K.A Bunker) and a rude onlooker was caught on video, the clip went viral making Miguel an overnight Internet sensation.
Pfeifer continues his fresh take on teenage superheroes in TEEN TITANS #2 where we finally get to see Raven as an underground music enthusiast. In fact, we learn that Raven isn’t just a fan of the music; she’s actually an indie music icon and has her own tribute band! Not bad for a hero who’s often marked by her mysterious and withdrawn nature.
Below, take a look as Raven, undercover, goes to a concert to hear her tribute band “Dark Mistress” play. She seems to like what she hears. Will Raven ever perform herself? How will having a tribute band affect her role as a Teen Titan?
TEEN TITANS #2, written by Will Pfeifer and illustrated by Kenneth Rocafort, is available in stores now

By BYRON BREWER THE FLASH’S ROGUES GALLERY GROWS AS GIRDER IS CAST08/21/14 @ 10:40 pm EST
I hope when The Mighty Avengers
becomes Captain America and the Mighty Avengers,
it maintains the level of quality, continuity and human character that is in the current edition.
Of course, the writer will be the same and that will ensure that I will follow this team I have grown so fond of into the next volume.
I am a great fan of Jonathan Hickman and Rick Remender, but if I had to choose my favorite Avengers scribe of the present, it would definitely be Al Ewing.
Through event after event, crossover after crossover, Ewing has not been deterred from keeping the unique flavor of these Avengers alive. Having been raised on the Roy Thomas Avengers
, probably the best period of this franchise's existence, I am impressed with what Ewing has done with story, subplot and of course character.
I just hope Marvel's enthusiasm to promote Sam Wilson will not interfere with the quality of this book and his team.
As far as issue #13 goes, another solid one for Ewing. The slowly brewing plot of the Deathwalkers is delightfully retro, and the climax is straight out of a 1970a book. Loving it!
The extension of the storyline with Luke and his father, the Mighty Avengers of the 1970s, even the development of Power Man all hit the right notes.
The wonderful art by Salvador Larroca was just icing on the cake, but I did miss Greg Land. He has done so much for this book.
I look forward to the new edition of the Mighty Avengers mag with a winged Captain America.
As long as Al Ewing is here, I will Make Mine Marvel and Make Mine Mighty Avengers!

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of X-O MANOWAR #0 – a colossal comics milestone and an all-new jumping-on point arriving in October from New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti(ARMOR HUNTERS, Green Lantern) and superstar artist Clay Mann (X-Men: Legacy, Gambit)! In the wake of the sold-out success of ARMOR HUNTERS, start reading here as the world’s most wanted hero returns to his roots for a never-before-revealed look into X-O Manowar’s past!

In addition to the centuries-spanning origin tale by Venditti and Mann, each component of Johnson’s epic, five-piece interlocking image revisits a different chapter in the life of Aric of Dacia, the man behind the armor – his abduction and enslavement by the maleficent alien race known as The Vine in the fifth century A.D.; his escape and arrival in the modern day with The Vine’s ultra-powerful X-O Manowar armor; his pursuit by the cunning intelligence agent called Ninjak; his ascent into the ranks of the unbreakable all-star superteam codenamed: Unity; and, finally, his battle against the onslaught of the alien Armor Hunters!

Be here on October 8th to learn the violent, never-before-told origin of Visigoth life under the brutality of the Roman Empire, and how the modern day’s most feared armored hero began his journey to the stars nearly two millennia ago.
