The Internets were all lit up this morning when I went to check the various movie news sites, with a new gag reel from none other than the Mega-Blockbuster Marvel Movie The AVENGERS!!!
I think gag reels are awesome. It’s a great way to show the fun side of film making, and also to get a glimpse into some “behind the scenes” type situations, like Captain America not being able to pull on his parachute!
Check out the gag reel below courtesy of DailyMotion.com. I did notice some sites were already taking this down however so watch it while you can!
Also, you can listen to the Cinema Recon review of The Avengers here on Episode 05/13/12!!!
In case you have been living under a rock that is wedged between two larger rocks and you don’t have internet access beneath said rock, The Avengers has officially released in the US today. Already taking in $300+ million worldwide and having received rave reviews, it is safe to say this movie will set a few records. If there was ever any doubts, they can be put to rest now: The Avengers is already a success.
Cinema Recon will be seeing the behemoth superhero adventure tonight at the AMC Van Ness in San Francisco. It’s not a question of if you’ll see it, so I’ll ask, when are you going to catch it? Did anyone go to the early showings? Tell us what you thought!
Well, if there is one thing Hollywood is good at, it is squeezing every single last dime out of something until the well has completely run dry. Then even after that, they take the bricks from the well and sell them too. Then, they sell the rights to look at the spot where the well use to be. After that, they start working on the second well, The Well: Return of the hole in the ground (starring Morgan Freeman most likely, or Bill Paxton… Bill Paxton would be good too I guess).
But what really pisses me off, is all these articles say “See the action figures here! Caution toy images contain plot sploilers!!!” …. really? … REALLY? How much can an action figure contain plot spoilers!?!? What is this the 1998 movie Small Soldiers? Are the action figures running around telling everyone how the movie ends? What could we possibly be learning about a 2 hour long movie from seeing a couple Lego building blocks! But upon looking at the images even more I guess they are right, I mean, I’m pretty pissed knowing that Captain America is going to have a hole in his head the whole movie….
