THRCHINA BOX OFFICE: 'AVENGERS: ENDGAME' SMASHES PRESALES RECORD04/23/19 @ 9:52 am EST
is reporting that Marvel Studios and Disney's superhero juggernaut Avengers: Endgame
is virtually assured of shattering records with a projected global launch of $850 million, including a potential all-time best of $270 million-$300 million in North America, where it unfurls in 4,600 theaters, the widest release ever.
The big caveat is the tentpole's running time of 3 hours and 58 seconds. That means a reduction in showtimes. So far, Disney and theater owners appear to be making up the difference by adding additional screens and showtimes.
The box office is in sore need of good news. Domestic revenue is running 17 percent behind the same corridor last year, although many believe Endgame
could be the first of many 2019 juggernauts (many of them from Disney).Avengers: Endgame
is directed by the Russo brothers, who shot the movie back-to-back with last year's Avengers: Infinity War

THRINSIDE MONDAY'S 'AVENGERS: ENDGAME' WORLD PREMIERE 04/23/19 @ 9:47 am EST
is reporting that Disney/Marvel's Avengers: Endgame
, the Russo Brothers' wildly-anticipated franchise closer, is flexing its muscles for a record-smashing run in China.
As of midday Tuesday Beijing time, the tentpole, set to open in China on Wednesday, had already reached $90 million (RMB 603 million) in presales, setting a new all-time presales record, ahead of local tentpole Monster Hunt 2
(RMB 401 million) and Avengers: Infinity War
(RMB 398 million).Avengers: Endgame
also is estimated to earn more than $20 million in midnight previews, more than double the existing previews record held by Furious 8
($9.1 million) since 2017.Endgame
, the 22nd installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), is the culmination of the 11-year journey that started with Iron Man,
and is a direct sequel to Infinity War
from last year. The franchise's start coincided with the beginnings of China's box office boom era, meaning a whole generation of young Chinese filmgoers' first memories of the multiplex are nostalgically linked to MCU superhero movies. Marvel fandom is as fervent in the Middle Kingdom as anywhere in the world.

Following the shocking events of the Season Two finale, the thrills of CBS’s wildly popular Star Trek: Discovery continue in a new three-issue comic book miniseries from IDW Publishing, Star Trek: Discovery – Aftermath!DEMAND FOR THESE SAVAGE SHORES SEES NEW COVER DESIGN IN REPRINTS04/22/19 @ 4:11 pm EST
This riveting new comic book, under license by CBS Consumer Products, reunites co-writers Kirsten Beyer, Mike Johnson, and artist Tony Shasteen (who previously worked together on 2018’s Star Trek: Discovery – The Light of Kahless) for a storyline focused prominently on Spock. In the aftermath of the 2019 finale, everything in Discovery has changed, and as L’Rell and Pike try to negotiate a fragile peace, Spock finds himself grappling with the fallout from what happened with Michael Burnham – and the mysteries about her still left to unravel.
“The new series shows how Pike, Spock, L’Rell, and the rest of the cast deal with the fallout from the mind-blowing events of Season Two,” says Johnson. “And we couldn’t be happier that Tony Shasteen is beaming back onboard for this story!”
“To be able to follow up on the huge status-quo shift presented in that finale is a dream come true, especially with a team as talented as Kirsten, Mike, and Tony,” says editor Chase Marotz. “In terms of fitting into the broader universe presented in Discovery, this new series is perhaps our most essential yet, and I can't wait for everybody to see what we've got in store for them.”

For nearly two decades, writer Ed Brubaker and artist Sean Phillips have created some of the most acclaimed and hard-hitting crime comics in the medium’s history—and now they’re exposing the seedy underbelly of the comic book industry itself. Their latest collaboration, Bad Weekend, explores comics history through the genre lens of crime fiction, bringing readers on a dark ride through the secret history of an industry that’s always been haunted by crooks, swindlers, and desperate dreamers. Image Comics will publish Bad Weekend—the ultimate comic convention crime tale—as a hardcover this July, ahead of San Diego Comic-Con.'SUPERGIRL': "AMERICAN DREAMER" PROMO 04/22/19 @ 10:42 am EST
In Bad Weekend, we meet Hal Crane, a legendary cartoonist who’s been around since the earliest days of comics. Hal knows that comics won’t just break your heart. Comics will kill you. Stuck at an out-of-town convention waiting to receive a lifetime achievement award, Crane must confront a history of old grudges and terrible mistakes.
“I feel like this is a comic I've been writing in my head most of my career," said Brubaker. "Hal Crane isn’t based on anyone in particular. But bits and pieces of his history are lifted from sad tales and sordid gossip that you hear over the years in this business, especially about the old days. Gambling. Drinking. Prostitution. Theft. Death. There’s always been a darkness at the edge of comics and I wanted to explore that in Bad Weekend. Is this an exposé of the industry? Sort of, but it’s a love letter to the medium, as well.”
Bad Weekend features an expanded and remastered version of the story recently serialized in issues #2 and 3 of Criminal, with several completely new scenes, and presented in the same gorgeous hardcover format as Brubaker and Phillip's bestselling graphic novel My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies. And like every Criminal graphic novel, Bad Weekend is a stand-alone story that works as a singular reading experience.
