Posted on Author RachelComments Off on “The Avengers” DVD/Blu-ray Release Announced
As it continues to dominate the box office, Disney just announced that The Avengers will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on September 25, 2012.
Remember when director Joss Whedon told fans to expect 30 minutes of deleted scenes with the movie’s home video release? Well, all that bonus footage will be available on the movie’s Blu-ray edition, which will feature bookending alternate opening and ending scenes featuring Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill. Other features on the four-disc combo pack include a gag reel, Assembling the Ultimate Team featurette, a Second Screen feature, and a commentary from Whedon himself. The DVD version is pretty slim on the bonus goodies, just including the commentary.
And there’s rumors of a ten-disc set that would include all the Marvel movies (Iron Man 1 and 2, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, and Captain America). If that rumor comes true, better warm up that butt imprint on your couch. (Source)

Posted on Author RachelComments Off on How Much Screen Time Did Each Avenger Receive?
GeekTyrant.com thought all of the Avengers represented in Joss Whedon’s The Avengers got their fair share of screen time. But lets face it, some got more screen time than others. Vulture went ahead and clocked the screen time of each character in the film just so we could know this useless bit of geek trivia. They also give a fun little breakdown of some other time stats of each character. Enjoy!
Chris Hemsworth as Thor Clock time: 25:52
Chris Hemsworth gets more than his share of hitting people moments, yet is limited to only one extended dialogue scene — a 2:13-long conversation with brother Loki atop a mountain at night. (Though his perfectly timed “He’s adopted” line got maybe the third or fourth biggest laugh of the film.)
Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye 12:44
Chris Hemsworth as Thor: 25:52
Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner / Hulk: 28:03
Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow: 33:35
Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man: 37:01
Chris Evans as Captain America: 37:42

Marvel’s The Avengers opened as the top film in U.S. and Canadian theaters, kicking off the summer movie season with a record $200.3 million in sales this weekend for Walt Disney Co. (DIS) Revenue topped the previous best of $169.2 million set by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 last year, researcher Hollywood.com Box-Office said today in an e-mailed statement. Analysts had forecast sales of $150 million to $170 million for “The Avengers.”
Summer ticket sales are expected to surpass the record of $4.4 billion set last year, according to Jeff Bock, box-office analyst at Exhibitor Relations Co. Other films scheduled in the coming weeks include Warner Bros.’ The Dark Knight Rises, directed by Christopher Nolan, and Sony Corp. (6758)’s Men in Black 3, a sequel that reunites Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones as government agents managing Earth’s secret alien population.
The Avengers is the first Marvel movie Disney is distributing since buying the comic-book company for $4.2 billion in 2009. The movie provides Burbank, California-based Disney with a hit after the box-office failure of “John Carter,” the science-fiction film released in March that resulted in a $200 million loss for the company.

Posted on Author RachelComments Off on “The Avengers” Earns $178.4 Million Overseas
How huge is The Avengers? The comic-book event has now grossed more money than all but our moviegoing nation’s biggest box-office hits of the year—and, as you may have noticed, it hasn’t opened here yet.
Since opening in some countries on Wednesday, the team-up flick has grossed a combined $178.4 million through Sunday, its studio estimated. If that take were a domestic total, it’d place The Avengers between Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax and 21 Jump Street for third place among 2012’s biggest moneymakers.
As an international take, it’s more than Battleship grossed in in its first two weeks overseas, and it’s not that far off from the international total of what was the year’s biggest box-office star: The Hunger Games.
“The Avengers” set all-time weekend records everywhere from Argentina to New Zealand. Its biggest overall haul came from the United Kingdom, where the film stood at $24.7 million so far.
More big money presumably is to come. The film has yet to open in the monster markets of China, Japan and Russia. Oh, and, yes, the film hasn’t been released here in North America yet, either.
Not that U.S. and Canadian-based fans are watching their clocks… (Source)
