China Box Office: Weekend Chart Dominated By Non-Chinese Films

Unusually, all of the top five films at the China box office this weekend were non-Chinese. That’s a relatively rare occurrence, as audiences typically favor local films over foreign content.

Why Working on 12 Marvel Movies Only Partially Prepared ILM for Avengers: Endgame

Imagine if Avengers: Endgame was the first Marvel movie. Not storywise, of course. That would be silly. But think about a team-up, comic book movie on this scale coming into theaters, sight unseen. Logistically, that feels like a nightmare for a ton of reasons, especially if a company (or several) was tasked with…Read more...

‘Avengers: Endgame’: Here’s How ‘Back to the Future’ Co-Creator Bob Gale Responded to Those References

It’s fair to say that Bob Gale may be one of the people on Earth who has most shaped the way human beings think about time travel. Sure, you could put people like Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking up there, but Gale is the co-writer/producer of the Back to the Future trilogy, and it’s a safe bet that more people have seen those movies than have cracked open a book by either of those two scientists. As you undoubtedly know by now, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame deals extensively with time t...

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Almost Gave Black Widow an Added Layer of Tragedy After the Snap

Avengers: Endgame is full of tragedy, not simply because of the heart-wrenching ending, but because of the five years of doom and gloom Earth’s mightiest heroes must endure after failing the universe. However, one character whose arc was already tragic enough in the sequel was almost a little more upsetting in a number of ways, especially for fans who were unhappy with how Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) was handled in this culmination of The Infinity Saga. Speaking on Thursday’s episode of ...

‘Avengers: Endgame’: Dark Elves Were Almost in Thanos’s Army; Howard the Duck Was in the Script From the Beginning [Interview]

Of all the films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe thus far, 2013’s Thor: The Dark World holds the lowest percentage on Rotten Tomatoes (it’s currently at 66%). So it was surprising to see that film play such a significant role in Avengers: Endgame, and according to the visual effects supervisor who oversaw Endgame‘s final battle, there was almost another callback to The Dark World in the form of dark elves serving in Thanos’s army. That ended up not happening in the end, but read on for a break...
