Marvel's "The Avengers' Movie Review -- How Many Kisses Do Our Favorite Superheroes Get? 


Joss Whedon, the creator of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” is the guiding force behind Marvel’s “The Avengers.” One of the most memorable aspects of “Buffy” was its remarkable usage of team spirit. Together, the gang of Buffy, Willow, Xander, and Giles defeat demons.


So it makes perfect sense for Whedon to apply his team-building knowledge to write and direct “The Avengers,” a film that puts together a group of Marvel superheroes. The result is an exhilarating journey about powers and great responsibilities. Read More...

Finally, "The Dark Knight Rises" Latest Trailer We've All Been Waiting For! More Selina Kyle, More Catwoman! 
And we can understand Tom Hardy as Bane, a little bit. But truth be told, this is the movie I'm really, really looking forward to seeing this summer. July 20 can't come soon enough!

Here's trailer 3 of "The Dark Knight Rises"



Here's more details on "The Dark Knight Rises" from Warner Bros.

Warner Bros. Pictures' and Legendary Pictures' "The Dark Knight Rises" is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy. Leading an all-star international cast, Oscar(R) winner Christian Bale ("The Fighter") again plays the dual role of Bruce Wayne/Batman. The film also stars Anne Hathaway, as Selina Kyle; Tom Hardy, as Bane; Oscar(R) winner Marion Cotillard ("La Vie en Rose"), as Miranda Tate; and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, as John Blake. Returning to the main cast, Oscar(R) winner Michael Caine ("The Cider House Rules") plays Alfred; Gary Oldman is Commissioner Gordon; and Oscar(R) winner Morgan Freeman ("Million Dollar Baby") reprises the role of Lucius Fox.

"Think Like a Man" 2peats, Beats "Five-Year Engagement," John Cusack! "The Avengers" Flies Atop Overseas Box-Office with $178.4M! 


Judd Apatow, Jason Segel, John Cusack, and Jason Statham have nothing on "Think Like a Man." The previous weekend box-office victor repeated its winning performance holding on the top spot amid new competitors.

The romantic comedy based on Steve Harvey's bestselling book, "Think Like a Man" earned $18 million for the No. 1 position, according to studio estimates. Meanwhile, "The Five-Year Engagement," from the studio (Universal) and creative team that gave us "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" failed to impress with an $11.2 million debut at no. 5. But have no fear for the combined powers of producer Judd Apatow and star Jason Segel, the box-office films at No. 2, 3, 4, and 5 were so closed to each other that the positions might shift tomorrow when studios release their final tally.

At No. 2 was "The Pirates! Band of Misfits" featuring the voices of Hugh Grant, David Tennant, Jeremy Piven, and Salma Hayek earned $11.4 million. Zac Efron's "The Lucky One," based on a Nicholas Sparks novel, moved down to No. 3 with $11.3 million.

At No. 4 was "The Hunger Games" with $11.25 million. The box-office titan has made $372.5 million in the domestic box-office and it's now only $10 million behind the top-grossing finale of the "Harry Potter" series.

The sweet romantic comedy, "The Five-Year Engagement" debuted at No. 5 with $11.2 million. I enjoyed this movie so what the heck are you all waiting for?

Oh I get it, y'all are waiting for next week's "The Avengers" right? Which, by the way, debuted this week in some international markets, and guess what? It made lots of money, surprise surprise!

Directed by one of my cinematic gods, Joss Whedon, "The Avengers" debuted at the top of international box-office with a head-spinning $178.4 million take!

How much do you think "The Avengers" will make in its domestic box-office debut next weekend? As you ponder that, here are the Top 10 Box-Office Films for weekend of April 27th:

1. “Think Like a Man,” $18 million

2. “The Pirates! Band of Misfits,” $11.4 million

3. “The Lucky One,” $11.3 million

4. “The Hunger Games,” $11.25 million

5. “The Five-Year Engagement,” $11.2 million

6. “Safe,” $7.7 million

7. “The Raven,” $7.3 million

8. “Chimpanzee,” $5.5 million

9. “The Three Stooges,” $5.4 million

10. “The Cabin in the Woods,” $4.5 million
