Perhaps today’s coolest celebrities might come from an unexpected field; a comic book story turned to film. Yes, that’s The Avengers. And why was the movie a big blockbuster even before it was released on movie houses? Well, our folks were once kids, and before they had TV they have the comic books. Ask your dad who the hell are the Avengers and you might be surprised that they can tell you a handful of stories not even your friends can tell. But in this celebrity news, we’ll tell that the movie is way too cool to pass on.
The Avengers film was highly anticipated, especially as the “assemble” of Earth’s mightiest heroes goes to the big screen. The movie features Chris Evans as Captain America, the icon that was apparently the role model of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s agent Phil Coulson; Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, the green mean alter-ego of Dr. Banner; Chris Hemsworth as Thor, thunder god, wielder of Mjolnir, and son of Odin; Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Starks, the handsome, playboy, philanthropist and owner of the Iron Man suit; Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, the insanely accurate marksman; and Scarlet Johansson as Black Widow, the sexy Russian spy that gave a balance to the almost domination of testosterone in the movie.
As the theaters opened during the first weekend of The Avenger’s release, people flocked and didn’t waste precious time just to get tickets. By the end of its weekend opener, The Avengers recorded a stunning $200 million in ticket sales. The movie already earned a whopping $441 million since its international release on April 25. That gives a total of more than $641 million in a little less than 2 weeks since it was released.
That amount also ensured The Avengers to the history books as it surpassed Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2, which had an opening weekend with $169.2 million. And now it’s on its way to the $1 billion mark, something that’s a really great feat for a movie.
More than just the slam banging action that all of us would expect from this superhero movie, in this celebrity news the storyline was simply not boring. It gave the fans a lot to cheer about especially the crazy humor that each character portrayed. Uniquely, the film brought out different aspects of the characters that would’ve been hard to pull off if not because of the actors’ dedication to the movie’s success.
So if you haven’t watched it, don’t waste your time waiting for a DVD copy. Why wait for 2 months or more before a licensed copy will be released. Enjoy it with the rest of your family, or with a date. It’s worth watching.
