Marvel has released a new trailer for the highly-anticipated blockbuster The Avengers: Infinity War. Infinity War is the beginning of the end for the first major story arc of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It will show the mad titan Thanos (Josh Brolin), who first appeared in 2012’s The Avengers, attempting to complete the Infinity Gauntlet in order to take over the galaxy. Fighting back will be every Marvel hero we’ve seen so far, starting in 2008’s Iron Man and going all the way up through the yet-to-be-released Black Panther.
The Avengers: Infinity War is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and stars many Marvel fan favourites like Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Pratt, Mark Ruffalo, Sebastian Stan, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Elizabeth Olsen and Zoe Saldana among so many others. The films hits theatres on April 27, 2018. Take a look at the trailer below:

You won’t have to wait as long to see Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War in theaters in North America.
Marvel announced on Twitter the third Avengers film will now be released on April 27 as opposed to its original planned May 4 release date. Marvel Studios made the announcement via a Twitter exchange with Iron Man star Robert Downey, Jr.
Marvel Studios first tweeted out about the film debuting on May 4, when Downey, Jr. chimed in asking to see it earlier. Marvel Studios accommodated him — and the many fans hoping to see the film as soon as possible. Of course, this was naturally a planned announcement transformed into a clever marketing stunt that used one of the stars of the MCU as a voice for the people wanting to watch Infinity War early.
This lines the North American release of the film up with its planned international debut. That new release date is a week after the Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson-starring Rampage adaptation. It also further separates Infinity War’s release from other big May tentpole films, which include Deadpool 2 and Solo: A Star Wars Story. (Source)

Chris Hemsworth is in early negotiations to star in Sony’s self-styled spinoff of the sci-fi action-comedy franchise Men in Black.
F. Gary Gray, who directed last year’s Fate of the Furious, is due to helm the movie, which has a script by Iron Man writers Matt Holloway and Art Marcum. The pic is slated for release on June 14, 2019.
Akin to how Jurassic World revived the Jurassic Park film series, Sony’s reboot is to feature new characters rather than Agents K and J, portrayed by Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith, respectively, and build on the contemporary sci-fi world in which they operated.
Sources say that the studio is hoping to round out a diverse ensemble cast and may be potentially eyeing the leads to be white male, a female of color and an older man. The story will be a global adventure.
Smith and Jones powered the first Men in Black film to $589 million at the global box office in 1997 and subsequently starred in two sequels — one in 2002 and one a decade later in 2012. The entire franchise has made more than $1.5 billion worldwide.
Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are back as producers, while Steven Spielberg is returning as executive producer. (Source)
Posted on Author RachelComments Off on “Thor: Ragnarok” Deleted and Extended Scenes
Marvel Studios has released two extended and deleted scenes from the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok Blu-ray online. Both clips feature Jeff Goldblum as The Grandmaster.
The first video shows Grandmaster instructing Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) to find Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). Grandmaster waves his hand to signify that Loki and Valkyrie need to leave, but neither of them seems to initially understand that. The rest of the scene plays out like a game of charades. Goldblum mimes different “universal symbols” to Topaz (Rachel House).
The second clip features the ruler of Sakaar getting annoyed by some type of alien bats that are swarming around as he makes The God of Thunder’s acquaintance.
Thor: Ragnarok will be released on Digital HD on February 20, while the Blu-ray arriving in stores on March 6. Take a look at the clips below and head over to the gallery for the latest additions:
Posted on Author RachelComments Off on Tourism Australia “Dundee” Super Bowl Commercial
The ambitious plan to take Australia to the Super Bowl began over dinner at a Sydney pizzeria this time last year — but could serve tourism operators close to $6 billion in US travel business by 2020.
The mock Crocodile Dundee trailer — teased to viewers before the NFL blockbuster — proved to be the stunning launch of Tourism Australia’s biggest single advertising campaign into America since Paul Hogan fronted the Come Say G’Day ads over 30 years ago.
An all-star cast of Australia’s most popular showbiz exports — lead by Thor star Chris Hemsworth and featuring cameos by Oscar nominee Margot Robbie and Hugh Jackman — featured in the 60-second spot, which aired to an estimated audience of 110 million people during the Super Bowl showdown between New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles.
Hemsworth, a Tourism Australia ambassador, will also feature in the rollout of an extended $36 million marketing campaign, alongside actor Danny McBride who appeared in the commercial as Mick Dundee’s long lost son. Take a look at the trailer below:

Posted on Author RachelComments Off on “Avengers: Infinity War” Director Hoping For “Darth Vader For A New Generation”
After making his debut in the post credits scene of The Avengers, we’re now just a few short months away from seeing Thanos take centre stage as he battles Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Infinity War. And, speaking to Empire Magazine, Joe Russo has been chatting about the Mad Titan, and what he and his brother Anthony are hoping to achieve with the villain:
“Darth Vader was the pre-eminent villain of my childhood, and we’re hoping to make a Darth Vader for a new generation,” said Russo. “We’re hoping he has that complexity to him, and that he strikes fear into the heart of the audience, but at the same time they go on a journey with him. Frankly, Avengers 3 is his movie.”
If there’s been one major criticism levied towards Marvel, it’s that the films’ villains haven’t always been up to par. Let’s hope that changes when Marvel unleashes the Mad Titan this May.
Avengers: Infinity War opens on April 27th in the UK and May 4th in North America. (Source)
