I can’t believe there are just two more days before I head to L.A. for the Thor: The Dark World red carpet premiere.  (As I write that, the lyrics, “Lea-ving, on a jet plane” popped into my head and will likely be there for hours.)  There’s some fun new Thor: The Dark World information I want to share with you before I get lost in packing, though.

Thor: The Dark World London Premiere

Thor: The Dark World recently had it’s London Premiere.  These two photos from that event will give you an idea of what we can expect to see at the L.A. Premiere!  Doesn’t Tom Hiddleston (who plays Loki and whom we will be interviewing) seem like such an awesome guy?

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!

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 »
