For ten movies we’ve been waiting to see an entire movie of the Avengers being “The Avengers.” Sure, we’ve seen some crossovers. We’ve seen what the team could do when aliens invaded. We’ve even seen an alien pseudo-Avengers assemble in Guardians of the Galaxy. But up until Avengers: Age of Ultron, we haven’t seen what would happen if six amazing superheroes spent an entire movie together, working together.
For that reason alone, Joss Whedon‘s Avengers Age of Ultron is satisfying. Beyond that, it a falls a little bit short of its amazing predecessor. When compared to the first film, Age of Ultron is more even, constantly exciting and surprising. There are huge laughs, there’s drama, some real character development, and some absolutely crazy action. That consistency almost makes up for the fact the film lacks the “Wow” moments of the first movie and that brand new feeling we got the first time.
Nevertheless, Avengers: Age of Ultron is a blast. Read the rest of our Avengers Age of Ultron review below. Read More »
If IMAX is the future of movies, the company is really going to show it with Brad Bird‘s Tomorrowland. While the director didn’t shoot in native IMAX, his film will be presented entirely in an expanded aspect ratio when it is released on May 22. Sam Mendes’ Skyfall did something similar; it was shown in a 1.9:1 aspect ratio, which is 25% bigger than a regular screen. Tomorrowland will be similar.
If that’s not enough, fans who go to see Avengers: Age of Ultron in IMAX will be presented with an extended look at Tomorrowland, running about six minutes long. Read more about the Tomorrowland IMAX goodies below. Read More »
