Shawarma wasn’t the only post-script to the climactic battle in The Avengers. A couple found a discarded alien gun and went on a crime spree too, with S.H.I.E.L.D in hot pursuit.

Lionsgate has released a final trailer for Oliver Stone’s W, which is basically an extended version of the recent tv spots.

Official Plot Synopsis: Whether you love him or hate him, there is no question that George W. Bush is one of the most controversial public figures in recent memory. In an unprecedented undertaking, acclaimed director Oliver Stone is bringing the life of our 43rd President to the big screen as only he can. W takes viewers through Bush’s eventful life — his struggles and triumphs, how he found both his wife and his faith, and of course the critical days leading up to Bush’s decision to invade Iraq.
