Another one of the recent commercials put out for Avengers, love the end of this one:

Yeah - this one does have a great ending - and I agree with Jman - the shot of the helicarrier is really nice as well....

I saw footage from the Red Carpet Premiere last night.

WTF was Charlie from LOST doing there? Is that little weasel actually IN this movie? Dude must lead a charmed life...so far the only project he's been involved with that hasn't been an epic success was Flash Forward. (ugh)

Must have been hobnobbing.  I don't Avengers listed for him on IMDB.

BTW - purchased my tickets for 5/4 on Fandango yesterday.  Had a gift card from Christmas, and figured this was a showing that will almost certainly sell out.

Finally...Avengers Aliens revealed (spoilers obviously)

http://www.g4tv.com/attackoftheshow/blog/post/722736/the-avengers-alien-invaders-revealed/

IIRC, that ties in with some of the plot line we saw in the Ultimate Avengers animated feature.

Fan reviews are starting to pop up... and the buzz is highly positive.  That's a great relief.  I expect we'll see a lot more after this weekend's sneak peaks.

This is the kind of movie buzz that Disney should have made for John Carter. Disney's marketing team is really weird. They pump up Avengers and ignore John Carter.

I don't know how many of you have seen the Avengers monorail at WDW.

I read something a while ago that the Carter was a movie green-lit by a previous executive.  The current executive had little incentive to see it succeed.  Or something along those lines.

That said, Disney did spend millions promoting John Carter.  It just had failure written all over it.  All the early polling indicated there was no audience.  So they weren't going to plaster John Carter on the monorail.  Avengers, OTOH, is a guaranteed blockbuster.  You celebrate successes like this.  The monorail isn't going to sell movie tickets.  It's more like "Hey - we're the guys who did Avengers - we're awesome."

The first round of reviews:  Gushingly positive

My favorite blurb:

It's phenomenally awesome. No review for the film really matters anyway because you'd be mental to miss the biggest superhero film event since we were pooped out from the big bang.

So, my local theater is running a pretty slick party for the Avengers release.  Starting May 3rd at 11:30 am, they are going to show all of the movies leading up to the Avengers (Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Hulk, Thor, Captain America).  Cost is $40, then directly following you can watch the midnight release of the Avengers.  I already have plans to see it on the 4th or I would jump on this.  Not sure if I could actually survive 14 hours in a theater, but I would love to give it a shot.

AMC is doing that at a number of theaters, and many have sold out.

Here's some info about the sold out shows

And here's all the theaters they added.

As much as I'd like to go, I don't think I can skip out on my other obligations.
