Marvel Studios Presents: “Avengers: Infinity War” Official Trailer #2

I have to admit that I’ve been on a bit of a Marvel Studios high over the last few weeks after seeing “Black Panther”. It was so good and has made over $1.1 billion dollars at the global box office. Have you seen it yet? If you haven’t you are going to want to because it gives us a nice look at Wakanda which I am sure will play some part in the upcoming “Avengers: Infinity War” film that opens on April 27th. Now all the vibe is going to that film and we’ve just received a second trailer for the film. Let’s start off the Friday properly, and watch…..

The Premise: As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain. (thanks Wiki).

Opening: “Tomb Raider” in Theaters Everywhere (3/16/2018)

In keeping with the announcements about the big screen debuts of comic and adventure films that are coming at us, here is the one saying that “Tomb Raider” is opening today in theaters across the country. I’ve shared a couple of the trailers and it does look rather good so as an incentive here is the theatrical poster, the premise and casting.

The Premise: Tomb Raider is an upcoming 2018 American action-adventure film directed by Roar Uthaug and written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Alastair Siddons. It is primarily based on the 2013 video game of the same name by Crystal Dynamics, and will be a reboot of the Tomb Raider film series. The film tells about the first expedition of Lara Croft, in which she embarks on a perilous journey to her father’s last-known destination, hoping to solve the mystery of her father’s disappearance.

The Cast:
Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft
Emily Carey as 14-year old Lara
Maisy De Freitas as young Lara
Dominic West as Lord Richard Croft
Walton Goggins as Mathias Vogel
Daniel Wu as Lu Ren
Kristin Scott Thomas as Ana Miller
Nick Frost as Max
Hannah John-Kamen as Sophie
Antonio Aakeel as Nitin

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I’ve noted in the second trailer post, I just have too many things going on right now to see this film early in its theatrical run so I might need to take a pass on it. I’d like to see it but cannot promise when so its very unlikely a movie review will be loaded onto the website. What about you though? Are you checking this one out? Let me know down in the comments below but don’t leave any spoiler stuff since that is no bueno.

Attention: Sony Hall’s Grand-Opening Is March 27th 2018

Back in February we shared the news item about the partnership of the Blue Note Media Group and the Sony Corporation and if you didn’t see that broadcast please click HERE so you are up to speed for the next bit of news.

So earlier today the venues Official Facebook Page announced that their Grand-Opening will be on March 27th and feature a performance by the group known as MGMT. I didn’t know the name off the top of my head so did a quick check in Spotify and can safely say that its not particular sound preference. Good for them being the debut act at the new space and before I continue here is the scoop on the space as taken from their website.

ABOUT SONY HALL: Sony Hall is the new premiere music venue in New York City focused on presenting world renowned performing artists across all music genres, powered by state of the art technology. Owned/operated by Blue Note Entertainment Group and sponsored by Sony Corporation, Sony Hall is located in the heart of New York’s Theatre District (at the Paramount Hotel), with capacities of 1,000 standing and 500 seated, and a full-service restaurant and bar. Sony Hall will be equipped with Sony’s technologies, integrated throughout the 12,000 square-foot venue to deliver enhanced entertainment experiences to fans.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Since I am a very frequent concert goer I love the idea of another space opening up. This is a good size as its comparable to both Irving Plaza and the Times Square staple B.B. King Blues Club and Grill. I think that Stage 48 can host a couple of hundred more people than this new space but there haven’t been a lot of musical acts there lately and its been more Dance Hall nights. Spectrum Hall will not reopen for another two and a half years so let’s be excited for this place. There isn’t much more to add about this news but as I get the Events Calendar populated with the types of shows our readers most enjoy, you’d be able to find them using this TAG. Please know that at this point in time there are no listings to peruse but I’ll keep watching the page to be on point. What do you readers think about this upcoming grand opening? Chime in down below.

“World Of Krypton” #1

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Collectors might be interested in knowing that this is a reprint of a series that went by the same name back in 1987 and featured art and story by John Byrne and Mike Mignola. This issue comes with a spiffy exclusive new cover by Jason Badower. There is also a first-look at the new series which we’ve shared some posts about too. Click HERE for those trailers. I think this new series might be good and remember it airs on SyFy on 3/21.
