Synopsis: Marvel Studios presents in association with Paramount Pictures “Marvel’s The Avengers”–the Super Hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins. Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson, and directed by Joss Whedon, “Marvel’s The Avengers” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963 and a comics institution ever since. Prepare yourself for an exciting event movie, packed with action and spectacular special effects, when “Marvel’s The Avengers” assemble in summer 2012. In “Marvel’s The Avengers,” superheroes team up to pull the world back from the brink of disaster when an unexpected enemy threatens global security.
It's been a solid decade since we were introduced to Jason Bourne in The Bourne Identity and a full five years since we last saw the indomitable amnesiac super-assassin in The Bourne Ultimatum. Though we may very well have seen the last of Matt Damon as Jason Bourne, this summer, the franchise will continue with The Bourne Legacy, which tells the story of a new government assassin who goes off the figurative reservation.
Today, there's a new still from the film showcasing Jeremy Renner and Edward Norton, along with a better idea of approach involved in the Bourne-less espionage adventure, thanks to co-writer and director Tony Gilroy.
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.
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.
Okay, there are still weeks until The Avengers hits Stateside theaters, but the film has its world premiere in Los Angeles tonight. So if you felt overwhelmed by the sheer amount of The Avengers stuff out there, you're about to get buried under an avalanche of promotional material. For example, today we have another new official clip from the film, a behind the scenes featurette, and a livestream video of the aforementioned world premiere.
Just yesterday, Disney announced that Maleficent, the live-action retelling of the Sleeping Beauty story starring Angelina Jolie as the eponymous villain, would arrive in theaters on March 14, 2014. Before she moves into the realm of a fantasy origin tale, though, Jolie might just join a very different type of project for a brief spell. That would be The Counselor, the next film from Ridley Scott that is attracting attention from very famous people and a potential distributor.
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.
There's not much more than a month until The Avengers arrives in theaters, and, as such, I am contractually obligated to include an update on the superhero team-up on a daily basis. Today's bit of The Avengers minutiae is an international poster that puts all of those strapping heroes against a black background, with Tony Stark of course being the most prominent.
The week kicked off with ten stills from The Avengers, and in order to help you trudge through the workweek, we've now got a video featurette and no fewer than six behind the scenes images from Marvel's superhero mega-movie. When Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator/all-around nice guy Joss Whedon was selected to write and direct The Avengers, plenty of people pointed out that Whedon's usual ensembles involve lots of angst, while this superteam is comparatively squeaky-clean.
