Yet another new clip from The Avengers has made its way onto the "series of tubes" that is the internet. So far, clips from Marvel and Disney's superhero extravaganza have fallen into two categories, divided between big, heroic fisticuffs and clever, nimble dialogue exchanges. This new clip is definitely the latter, as Agent Coulson and Steve Rogers hang out on a quinjet.
Marvel superhero overload continues unabated as Disney promotes The Avengers with all due hugeness. There are mere weeks between now and the films domestic release, but if you're still looking to whet your appetite and have not yet been saturated by spoily bits, Marvel Studios has unveiled yet another official clip from The Avengers, the fifth so far.
The overwhelming tsunami of The Avengers promotion continues unabated in the days after the film's Hollywood premiere. Today, we've got two video bits to hold you over until Marvel's mega movie actually arrives in theaters next month. One is a brief clip straight from the film and the other is a featurette with some sweet bass and much interpersonal conflict. Both will make comic book fans with it were May 4th already.
Yesterday, The Weinstein Company started the hype-building process on Django Unchained by unveiling the first official poster for Quentin Tarantino's latest tale of – amongst other things – revenge, bad language, and violence. The poster was simple and stylized, evocative and cool, but didn't give much idea of what Django Unchained is actually about. So, to follow up on that poster, there's now an official synopsis to give an eager public the lowdown on the story.
By now, you're probably well aware that Marvel's The Avengers had its Hollywood premiere last night, generating a uniformly enthusiastic response, and the guaranteed-blockbuster is set to open Stateside in less than a month. But what if there are still some surprises in store for audiences once the movie actually hits theaters? Apparently, it's possible that one more scene from The Avengers has yet to be filmed, and according to one of the stars, an additional scene could be shot tonight.
A week after the first clip from The Avengers showed Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow laying waste to a bunch of ostensible interrogators, we've got the second official excerpt from Marvel's much-anticipated superheroic ensemble. Like its predecessor, this one does involve one of the few representations of femininity in the film, this time from the endlessly lovely Cobie Smulders as SHIELD Agent Maria Hill.
The next month is undoubtedly going to be dominated by The Avengers. Marvel Studios and Disney know just how novel and potentially huge the team-up of several different superhero franchises, so the event towards which Marvel has been building for several years is going to be promoted like a proper event. That means posters, billboards, clips, merchandising, fast food tie-ins, and commercials. Endless commercials.
A pair of photos from the New Orleans set of Django Unchained are now available online to serve as reminders that Christoph Waltz is starring in a new movie for writer-director Quentin Tarantino. The first of the two images reveals our first look at waltz sporting a costume and a mighty beard as Dr. King Schultz, the German dentist-turned bounty hunter who partners with the titular slave to rescue his wife from a cruel plantation owner in the Antebellum South.
There was never any question that, over the next month, the world would get positively pummeled by pervasive promotion for The Avengers. Turns out the promotional orgy for Marvel Studios' big team-up is going to be even more all-encompassing than we anticipated. But we'll get to that in a minute. First, let's just enjoy the anticipation that will no doubt be exhausting soon. Let's do that with two new TV spots, both of which are built around the same dialogue exchanges and one of which features a whole mess off new footage from the film.
The Avengers, the ensemble event towards which Marvel Studios has been marching since that post-credits sequence in 2008's Iron Man, arrives at theaters from sea to shining sea in not much more than a month. But that's just too long to wait. The cast and creative team will get to see the film early, of course, at The Avengers premiere in Los Angeles in about two weeks, and you just might be able to join them.
