Avengers: Endgame Being Paired With Massive MCU Marathons At Some Theaters

about X hours ago from

Avengers: Endgame is coming on April 26, and the opening of ticket sales came alongside a brand new trailer. This final installment in the Infinity Saga is a long one at just over three hours, but if that's still not enough Marvel for you, you may want to revisit the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Select AMC theaters (in New York, Chicago, and San Francisco) and the Alamo Drafthouse are planning marathon screenings of all 22 MCU movies. Altogether they clock in at almost 60 hours. That's two and a half days of noble superheroes, dastardly villains, witty quips, and whatever Thor: The Dark World was. Those who shell out for the massive marathon get to start the movie slightly earlier than everyone else, at 5 PM on Thursday, April 25. Other screenings begin at 6 PM.

Endgame is the culmination of more than ten years of Marvel films. Marvel began seeding a large, interconnected universe with the release of Iron Man in 2008, and then started to hint at Thanos as a key villain as early as 2012's Avengers. Infinity War was the first part of the long-awaited story, and it didn't end happily for Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Endgame will conclude the arc.

Classic Anime Akira's Live-Action Remake Moves Closer To Actually Happening

about X hours ago from

The live-action movie adaptation of the classic manga and anime Akira has been in development for over a decade, but it seems that it's getting closer to actually happening. Thor: Ragnarok's Taika Waititi is currently attached, and it has been reported that the movie has been selected to receive tax credits from the California Film Commission.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Akira is one of 18 projects that will benefit from California Film Commission's Film & TV Tax Credit Program. The movie will be filmed entirely in California and as a result will receive $18.5 million in tax credits. THR states that it will shoot for an estimated 71 days.

Akira does not yet have a production start date and casting has not yet begun, but Warner is clearly continuing to move forward with it. The movie is set to be produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, through his Appian Way production company.

Game Of Thrones Season 8's Haunting New Trailer Is Packed With Hidden Clues

about X hours ago from

The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones finally starts this month, and HBO is keeping the promos coming. Following the two new teasers released earlier this week, we have another new video. It's titled "Aftermath," and it takes a more abstract and haunting approach than those more traditional trailers.

The video showcases the deserted snowswept streets of Winterfell. There are no characters or dialogue, but it does feature the possessions of key Game of Thrones characters, most buried in the show. These include Tyrion's Hand of the King pin, Arya's needle, Bran's wheelchair, Jaime's golden hand, Lyanna's feather, Dany's dragon chains, and Jon's Longclaw. What can it all mean? Check the trailer above and let us know in the comments below.

Game of Thrones Season 8 premieres on April 14, with the remaining five episodes coming each week until mid-May. While there are only six episodes, they combine for a total of 432 minutes of runtime, or around 7.2 hours. Here's a full breakdown of each episode's premiere date and runtime.

Avengers: Endgame Final Runtime Confirmed

about X hours ago from

We're in the endgame now. Avengers: Endgame is less than a month away, and Marvel has kicked off ticket sales with a new trailer that's packed with new footage. With the opening of ticket sales has come confirmation of the film's runtime, and as rumored it will be the longest Marvel film to date.

Several theater chains list the runtime at 3 hours and 2 minutes. That makes it a good bit longer than the previously longest Marvel movie to date, Avengers: Infinity War, which came in at 2 hours and 36 minutes. Infinity War and Endgame are essentially a two-part story resolving the Thanos arc that has been teased throughout the MCU, so it makes sense that these two would be the biggest in the series. In other words, if you're currently purchasing tickets, find the theater with the comfiest seats.

The new teaser shows the handful of remaining heroes, including the new addition of Captain Marvel, assembling to confront Thanos. It also notably shows Captain America and Iron Man reconciling, which has been a looming rift since the events of Captain America: Civil War.

Tickets for the upcoming Marvel blockbuster Avengers: Endgame are now on sale. The movie hits theaters on April 26, and fans can pick up tickets for the opening weekend.

Marvel announced the ticket sale via Twitter, and accompanied it with a new trailer featuring a load of new footage from the film. The tweet also included a link to ticketing agency Fandango. However, there are reports that both Fandango and AMC's websites have been overwhelmed, with fans unable to load the ticket pages. The hashtag #AvengersEndgametickets was trending shortly after tickets went on sale.

Avengers Endgame is, unsurprisingly, set to the be one of the biggest movies of the year. While we haven't seen any official predictions as to how well it will do, it seems likely that it will open at least as well as last year's Avengers: Infinity War, which scored $257 million in its first three days in the US.

Avengers: Endgame Tickets Go Up For Sale, Crashes Ticketing Sites

Tickets for the upcoming Marvel blockbuster Avengers: Endgame are now on sale, and we have a confirmed runtime. The movie hits theaters on April 26, and fans can pick up tickets for the opening weekend.

Marvel announced the ticket sale via Twitter, and accompanied it with a new trailer featuring a load of new footage from the film--check out our breakdown for all the details. The tweet also included a link to ticketing agency Fandango. However, there are reports that both Fandango and AMC's websites have been overwhelmed, with fans unable to load the ticket pages. The hashtag #AvengersEndgametickets was trending shortly after tickets went on sale.

Errors on AMC's website were commonplace, and for a period of time the website (and app) seemed to be completely unusable. This prompted the rare public tweet from AMC's guest services Twitter account, which stated, "We want everyone to be able to grab their Avengers: Endgame tickets, but it looks like we've gotten Thanos' snap. We're working on getting things back up and running, and in the meantime, please keep trying our website and our partner sites!"

Fortnite Patch Notes (Content Update 8.20): New Bow And More

about X hours ago from

Fortnite has updated with another weapon and the return of a popular limited-time mode, along with some bug fixes. The patch notes for Content Update 8.20 comes just after a hotfix to address issues that were introduced in the initial 8.20 patch in late March.

The big new draw for many players will be the new Boom Bow weapon. As you might expect, it's a bow with shotgun shells on its arrow tips, so those will explode upon impact. For that reason it uses shotgun ammo, and holding fire to increase your draw strength will increase both the arrow's speed and the damage from impact. Explosive damage will be consistently set at 100 regardless. Save The World mode gets its own new weapon as well, the Cannonade Launcher.

The update also marks the return of the Sniper Shootout LTM. This mode limits weapons to sniper rifles only, and reduces Floor Loot spawners by 50% and deactivates reviving "Down But Not Out" teammates in Duos and Squads.

Avengers: Endgame Trailer Has New Footage; Tickets Go On Sale

about X hours ago from

Avengers: Endgame is now only a few weeks from release, and finally tickets have gone on sale. To coincide with that, Marvel has shared a few new IMAX posters and, more notably, a new "special look" teaser trailer. Despite running for less than a minute total, it's packed with new footage and gives us the best idea yet of what to expect from the movie.

The teaser shows that the remaining heroes will come together to confront Thanos. It certainly doesn't look like it's going to be an easy mission but the remaining heroes look determined--as Black Widows says: "We owe it to everyone not in this room to try." It also looks like Steve and Tony have settled their past differences, but Thanos--who hasn't been featured prominently in past trailers--doesn't seem very worried about their challenge. We also get a few more glimpses of Captain Marvel, as well as Tony having apparently made it back to Earth, where he reunites with Pepper Potts. Check the video out above and then head to our trailer breakdown that takes a close look at each of the key moments.
