Marvel’s Captain American: The Winter Soldier is in theaters!  I’m looking forward to my husband and I being able to catch it the next time Ashley is home and takes Bubbles out for a play date.  Marvel movies have long been some of my favorites, and I have heard nothing but amazing things about The Winter Soldier.

Captain America and the Black Widow #CaptainAmerica The Winter Soldier

While I really do love all the Marvel characters, Captain America has always been one of my favorites.  He’s devoted to his country, does the right thing, and values those who feel the same.  Plus, let’s be honest, Chris Evans is easy on the eyes.  And Black Widow gets some screen time in this one, which I also like.

Entertainment Updates: New Trailer for Disney's Saving Mr. Banks #SavingMrBanks

If you’re a Disney fan, you might want to have a tissue or two handy while you watch this new trailer for Saving Mr. Banks.  I found myself tearing up a bit towards the end, which tells me what already was a hunch: this movie is going to be amazing.  Saving Mr. Banks is inspired by the true, previously untold story of the extraordinary lengths to which Walt Disney (played by Tom Hanks) went in order to bring P. L. Travers’ (played by Emma Thompson) story of Mary Poppins to the big screen. Continue reading »

Are you an Avengers fan?

Our family is a group of huge Marvel movie fans.   We first fell in love with Iron Man a few years ago, and since then each installment of individual Avengers characters has lured us in more and more.  So it should be no surprise that the members of our household are all anxiously counting the days until next week’s release of The Avengers.  All of the Avengers together in one huge blockbuster?  It doesn’t get much better than that!

Marvel's The Avengers Graphic Novel #MarvelAvengersWMT

Both A1 and A2, as well as my husband and I, all had the chance to see The Avengers in the theater so we know it’s an amazing film.  Leaving the theater I remember both my husband and I commenting about how we couldn’t wait until it came out on DVD so that we could add it to our home library.  So that there was no chance on missing out, we were sure to pre-order a copy.  If you haven’t pre-ordered yours yet, it’s not too late!  Be sure to order from Walmart so you can get the exclusive Avengers Blu-Ray/DVD/Graphic Novel combo pack for $24.96!  Only 100,000 of the graphic novels were printed so it makes for a great collectible.  There are over 100 pages in it, as well.  We have a copy of it and the story, colors, and quality are all great.

Last week my husband and I had the pleasure of attending an advanced screening of Marvel’s The Avengers.  We knew right away that it was going to be a big hit: lots of action, laughter, and even a tiny bit of romance.  What we didn’t know, though, was just how big of a hit it was going to be.

It turned out to be one for the record books – literally.  The Avenger’s ended up posting over $200 million in it’s domestic debut, making it the highest-grossing domestic debut of all time.  It grossed $69.7 million on Saturday the 5th, which is the highest Saturday take of all time.

This is not a movie to miss, folks.  Seriously. Continue reading »
