Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows didn’t hold onto the top spot, but what else can you do after breaking so many records? It held up well and should continue on its way to be one of the biggest of the year and the franchise. Captain American took the lead, let’s look at some numbers.
I thought for sure Captain America would face the same humiliation as Green Lantern did, but I guess people just prefer Marvel to DC, or so I’m sure some people will spin it to seem. The truth is Green Lantern looked horrible and Captain America has Nazi’s, and people love them some Nazi killings. Whatever the reason, Captain now holds the highest debut for a comic book hero in 2011, previously held by Thor’s $65.7M debut.
So how did another R-rated comedy do? Well not as well as Bridemaids ($24M) and Bad Teacher ($31M) and not as much as its twin No String Attached (19.6M). Next week: Cowboys and Aliens, The Smurfs and Crazy, Stupid, Love.
Here’s the latest poster for Captain America: The First Avenger along with what’s been called the final trailer for the film. I haven’t seen nearly as much hype for this one as I did for Green Lantern, and that’s a great thing. Captain America: The First Avenger will focus on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America. Tommy Lee Jones is also involved, so that’s awesome.
The film also stars Chris Evans, Hayley Atwell, Sebastian Stan, Stanley Tucci and Hugo Weaving. Captain America: The First Avenger opens in 3D on July 22, 2011.

To hell with it, we’ve decided to go super optimistic with The Dark Knight Rises and have compiled a list of reasons why you should too. If The Dark Knight was the Empire Strikes Back of sequels, then TDKR is a combination of Return of the King, Last Crusade, Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Toy Story 3 and Goldfinger! How’s that for hype? July 20th, 2012 will go down in history as the day the greatest movie ever made was released and here’s why in no particular order: (more…)
Well it has Tommy Lee Jones, the kids still like him right? There are just too many of these movies coming out this year, my interest in comic book film is at an all time low. The trailer here does a nice job though, but I have a feeling this movie will be all set up for a better sequel with all the origin story out of the way…that being said, Iron Man 2 sucked. So don’t listen to me, here’s the trailer:
