PRAISE FOR LATEST ISSUE OF THE BOYS!

Source: CBR | Categories: The Boys | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment

The Boys" #65 gets us straight into the action after Butcher stormed off to face the Homelander in last month's cliffhanger. This storm has built over 64 issues and the wait was worth it. Garth Ennis decides to throw a curve ball into the monumental moment that is either genius or completely ridiculous depending on whether you wanted this book to live up to its farce foundation or were hoping for something more serious. When you take into account all the things that have come before, this bloody denouement is the climax the central animosity deserves.

While the concept of the introduction of a third party in this issue makes for interesting retroactive knowledge, the characterization is mostly distracting and downright silly. It's a great idea that reads well on the first pass but loses fidelity with inspection and any desire to find deep understanding. From here, the madness descends and readers will be given the violence and grand ideas they crave from this title. It's a shame it comes at a cost to the seriousness of the book and possibly even the showdown.

"The Boys" #65 takes the showdown through all its stages right here. Nothing is decompressed. The manner it plays out is gonzo wacky but the greatest part is Butcher's reaction to every little moment. He's a smart man who…. For the full review visit CBR

X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer will make an announcement on Tuesday about the film's Rogue Cut, according to the official Twitter account for the X-Men movies.

The expanded cut of the movie, which features more than 17 minutes of extra material, largely centering on the characters of Rogue (Anna Paquin) and Magneto (Sir Ian McKellen) in a bleak alternate future, was originally announced as a potential digital exclusive but now is expected to be released on DVD and Blu-ray as well.

Typically, Singer makes announcements on his personal Instagram and Twitter pages. It may be that this announcement is considered "big enough" that the official account simply wanted to draw more attention to it.

So far, there's no firm release date for the X-Men: Days of Future Past Rogue Cut, other than this summer. The announcement will likely be the release date, and possibly some more specifics about the differences between this film and the theatrical version that was released on Blu-ray last year.
SPIDER-MAN RANKED AS THE MOST VALUABLE COMIC BOOK MOVIE FRANCHISE
05/03/15 @ 10:18 pm EST
Source: Comicbook | Categories: Spider-Man | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Spider-Man

In spite of having some trouble in their most recent installment, Sony's Spider-Man franchise remains Hollywood's most valuable superhero property, according to Wall Street analysts.

24/7 Wall Street has broken down publicly available box office information to provide relative newcomers to the superhero film landscape with a Cliff's Notes version of the finances behind Hollywood's biggest cash cow.

Unsurprisingly, when you're looking at all-time box office grosses, the top three entries on the list are all characters who have had more than a dozen's years worth of movies already. Spider-Man takes the #1 spot with $3.96 billion and a franchise that's been going in one form or another since 2002; Batman comes in second, going since 1989 without significant interruption, and X-Men third with a franchise that started in 2000 and is the longest continually-running superhero world without a reboot.

Beyond those top three, though, are a bunch of frachises which are clustered tightly together and, with a new Avengers movie in theaters now which hasn't been accounted for at all in their math, the order of those rankings are already starting to shift anyway.

Some will also argue that ranking The Avengers at #5 in order to provide individual rankings for the solo character films that comprise the team of Avengers is questionable math, although it's difficult to argue against it, since the Iron Man, Thor, Captain Americaand Hulk franchises were already underway and, to varying extents, successful before Marvel's The Avengers was even officially announced.

Who is your daddy and what does he do?

Guardians of the Galaxy star Michael Rooker ('Yondu') participated in a Q&A session for Minnesota's KQRS radio station and one member of the audience asked him about the identity of Star-Lord's (Chris Pratt) father.

KQRS Listener: In the comics, we know who Star-Lord's father is (J'son, aka Jason of Spartax) ...

Michael Rooker: That's right.

KQRS Listener: And you reference him in the movie...

Michael Rooker: That's right, I do.

KQRS Listener: But I heard they're going in a different direction?

Michael Rooker: What makes you say that?

KQRS Listener: Just what I've heard online.

Michael Rooker: Well, you've heard wrong.

KQRS Listener: Okay. So...

Michael Rooker: What direction is that?

KQRS Listener: I don't know.

Michael Rooker: I don't know, nobody knows who Star-Lord's daddy is.

KQRS Listener: I do in the comics, if you've read the comics.

Michael Rooker: Well, you may be wrong.

KQRS Listener: Okay, that's what my question was - if they had revealed it to you?

Michael Rooker: I know who the daddy is. I can't say. But if you've read the comics - dug those comics out of your closet and read them - you will know who the daddy is.

KQRS Listener: So there going to go with that iteration?

Michael Rooker: I don't know.

MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE IS NOW HIGHEST GROSSING MOVIE FRANCHISE IN THE WORLD

marvel-cinematic-universe-1

With the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Disney and Marvel Studios have made a historic accomplishment at the worldwide box office. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is now the highest grossing movie franchise in the world.

With the addition of a $626 million global box office to date for Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has now grossed an astonishing $7.787 billion at the worldwide box office. Marvel took the top spot from the Harry Potter franchise, which now falls to second place with a $7.723 billion worldwide box office.

With Disney and Marvel Studios now releasing two to three movies a year under the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise, it’s also unlikely that anyone has a chance of catching them any time soon. Harry Potter, James Bond, Middle-Earth, and Star Wars are the other franchises in the top five, and those franchises usually only release one film a year at the most.

Here’s a rundown of the top five franchises (via Wikipedia):

1. Marvel Cinematic Universe - $7.787 billion

2. Harry Potter - $7.723 billion

3. James Bond - $6.160 billion

4. Middle-earth - $5.880 billion

5. Star Wars – $4.382 billion

A photo of the entire cast of Suicide Squad has been released. The photo was released on social media by director David Ayer, who wrote, "Task Force X assembled and ready." Noticeable absent from the photo is Jared Leto, who is playing The Joker. It's possible that Ayer didn't see the need to include The Joker, since a photo of him had already been released. It's also possible that The Joker isn't a member of the team and plays the role of the target for Suicide Squad.

Suicide Squad cast includes Jared Leto as The Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag and Cara Delevingne as Enchantress. Viola Davis will play Amanda Waller.Suicide Squad is being directed by David Ayer.

Suicide Squad is set to be released in movie theaters on August 5, 2016.
ĎAVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRONí HITS $626.7 MILLION GLOBALLY
05/03/15 @ 9:50 pm EST
Source: Variety | Categories: Age of Ultron | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Avengers Age of ultron Movie

“Avengers: Age of Ultron” dominated the global box office this weekend, picking up $168 million in foreign ticket sales.

The comicbook adventure’s worldwide bounty now tops off at $626.7 million after 12 days in theaters — “Avengers: Age of Ultron” opened in certain key international territories last week in advance of its domestic debut on May 1.

Among the assorted records it torched, the film has posted the biggest opening weekend of all time in Brazil, Mexico, Hong Kong, the Philippines, and Ecuador. Last weekend, the picture also scored the highest global haul for an Imax release, with $25 million in receipts.

“Avengers: Age of Ultron” has now opened in 71% of the global marketplace, but several key territories remain. The sequel will open in China, the world’s second largest marketplace, on May 12, and Japan, the third largest, on July 4.

A stronger dollar and wilting exchange rates in parts of Europe and Russia are causing some conversion headaches for “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and blockbusters of its ilk. Disney, which is releasing the film, says it is pacing 31% ahead of the first “Avengers” in local currency, and is ahead of its predecessor in terms of dollars, though it did provide a percentage.

The success of the “Avengers” reunion along with “Cinderella” pushed Disney past the $1 billion mark internationally.

“Avengers: Age of Ultron” wasn’t the only film putting up big numbers. “Furious 7″ continued its torrid run, adding $52.8 million to its $1.4 billion in winnings. The action adventure is now the fourth highest-grossing global release, traipsing past “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” behind only “The Avengers” ($1.5 billion), “Titanic” ($2.2 billion) and “Avatar” ($2.8 billion).

“Silent Separation,” an adaptation of a popular Chinese novel, scored third place on foreign charts with $28 million. The top five was rounded out by the DreamWorks Animation hit “Home” with $17 million, and the Hong Kong crime thriller “Helios,” with $16.9 million.
ĎAVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON': DID MAJOR SPORTS EVENTS HURT THE BOX OFFICE?

Avengers Age of ultron Movie

The Avengers may have triumphed over Ultron, but Earth’s Mightiest Heroes got a little bruised facing off against an onslaught of high-profile sports events.

The diabolical android had nothing on a weekend that overflowed with must-see baseball, basketball and hockey games, to say nothing of horse racing’s premier event and the so-called “fight of the century” between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao.

The matchup between the two greatest pugilists of our day had a lot to do with “Avengers: Age of Ultron” failing to trump “The Avengers'” record-breaking $207.4 million debut, analysts and studio executives say. With an opening of $187.7 million, the latest Marvel movie is still a massive success, and boasts the second-biggest bow in history, so don’t pass around the collection plate just yet. Still, going into the weekend, many industry sages and Disney, Marvel’s parent company, expected it to premiere to north of $200 million.

It wasn’t just Mayweather and Pacquiao that took a chunk out of the super team’s ticket sales. Millions of Americans tuned in to watch American Pharoah triumph at the Kentucky Derby, the New York Yankees edge out the Boston Red Sox, the New York Rangers defeat the Washington Capitals to inch closer to the Stanley Cup and the Los Angeles Clippers knock out the San Antonio Spurs in a wild and wooly playoff game.

“It was one of greatest sports days perhaps in history,” said Dave Hollis, distribution chief at Disney. “It feels like the barrage of sporting options grabbed a lot of people’s attention.”

The numbers suggest he’s right. “Avengers: Age of Ultron” had a bigger Friday than its predecessor, finishing the day with $84.5 million, as opposed to the $80.8 million that “Avengers” banked. However, its Saturday results paled in comparison, topping out at $57.2 million instead of $69.6 million for the first film.

The falloff was particularly pronounced among evening crowds. Roughly 31% of “Avengers: Age of Ultron’s” business took place after 5 p.m., while 37% of “The Avengers'” box office and 41% of “Iron Man 3’s” Saturday tickets were sold after that hour.

“It felt the impact,” said Phil Contrino, vice president and chief analyst at BoxOffice.com. “Saturday is usually a big day and those time slots are when a lot of people would go see it.”

“Avengers: Age of Ultron” wasn’t the only film fighting to hold off the onslaught of hot button sporting events. Even a film like “Far From the Madding Crowd,” an adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s novel that seems far removed from the slug match taking place in Las Vegas, had weaker Saturday results than expected even if the audiences for both events would seem to have little overlap.

Other films, such as “Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2″ and “Furious 7,” which catered to male crowds, predictably suffered steep drop-offs on Saturday.

“It’s not so much everyone wanted to see the fight,” said Frank Rodriguez, senior vice president of distribution at Fox Searchlight, the studio behind “Far From the Madding Crowd.” “There were parties everywhere for the Kentucky Derby and other things. There was just so much activity. It was a tough weekend overall.

”Of course, the first “Avengers” also battled against the Kentucky Derby, as well as a pay-per-view matchup between Mayweather and Miguel Cotto, but neither event could match the intensity of the interest in the boxing match with Pacquiao.

The good news for “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is that more moviegoers could rush out to see the film on Sunday and the film should show impressive endurance through next weekend when the only other major debut is “Hot Pursuit,” a comedy with Reese Witherspoon and Sofía Vergara.

Some analysts think that projections for the latest “Avengers” should have taken into account the boxing matches, horse races and playoff series that would vie for moviegoers’ attention.

“It shows the importance of looking at everything from the 30,000 feet level,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Rentrak. “There’s an entertainment pie and all these different events are going to take their own slice of the pie.”
BOX OFFICE: ĎAVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRONí SCORES SECOND-BIGGEST OPENING WITH $187.7 MILLION

Avengers Age of ultron Movie

“Avengers: Age of Ultron” scored the second-biggest domestic opening in history this weekend, kicking off summer blockbuster season with a mammoth $187.7 million debut.

Globally, the film is a juggernaut, pulling in an estimated $627 million in 12 days of release. At that pace, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” should pass $1 billion, particularly after it opens in China on May 12.

One record remained tantalizingly out of grasp for Captain America, Iron Man and company, however. Going into the weekend many analysts predicted that “Avengers: Age of Ultron” would top the $207.4 million haul posted in 2012 by the first film in the super-team series. That box office high-water mark will stand… at least until “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” lands in theaters this Christmas.

Part of the issue may have been weaker reviews than the first “Avengers” film, as well as competition from the NBA playoffs, the Kentucky Derby and the hotly anticipated boxing match between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao.

The “Avengers: Age of Ultron” results are still an astonishing feat and a testament to the powerful sway that Disney and Marvel have over moviegoers around the world. The three biggest North American debuts in history are now all Marvel movies, with “Avengers: Age of Ultron” displacing “Iron Man 3″ and its $174.1 million opening from its runner-up perch on the all-time list.“

It would be a shame to see headlines saying ‘Avengers 2′ fails by not setting opening weekend records,” said Phil Contrino, vice president and chief analyst at BoxOffice.com. “This is still a massive debut, but there’s something about the movie industry where people feel every weekend should set a new record.”
