On Thursday, actor Anthony Mackie stopped by “Good Morning America” to discuss the upcoming “Avengers: Infinity War” movie. It’s expected to be one of the biggest superhero movies ever as it will feature the greatest collection of Avengers superheroes together in one film. Not only will it feature heroes, but some brand new villains who have yet to appear on the big screen. A clip shown on “GMA” during Mackie’s appearance gave viewers a look at some of those villains known as “The Black Order” in the Marvel comics.
The “Good Morning America” YouTube channel features a video of Mackie discussing the upcoming movie. Mackie, who plays the superhero Falcon in the “Avengers” movies, said he was only allowed to see about 25 pages of the movie script, but joked there was another 250 pages of it. He mentioned that he mainly got to take a look at the part of the script focusing on the movie’s final battle.
Mackie also spoke about the improvisation that took place while filming due to the fact so many different characters from the Marvel cinematic universe were assembled together for the first time. That provided a collection of acting talents which spanned all of the Marvel films that have been released so far.
For example, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, and the Guardians of the Galaxy characters weren’t featured in “Captain American: Civil War,” while many of the other superheroes in “Infinity War” were part of that previous film. That makes for a lot of new interactions in the newest movie.
The folks at “GMA” also showed a very brief clip from the movie which shows Black Widow and Captain America battling members of the Black Order. Mackie’s Falcon eventually flies in to give an assist to help them take advantage of the numbers game. After the clip is finished, Mackie explained how he performed his “swift kick” move, thanks to the help of a skilled stuntman.
For those unfamiliar, the Black Order consists of three villains who act as Thanos’ henchmen. They are Ebony Maw, Cull Obsidian, and Proxima Midnight. Their roles are handled in the upcoming film by Terry Notary, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, and Carrie Coon. Prior to the new clip’s release, fans had seen one part of the trailer in which Doctor Strange is confronted by one of the Black Order.
The wait will be over for movie fans as “Avengers: Infinity War” is set for release in theaters on Friday, April 27th all around the United States.
When Deadpool hit theaters two years ago, it proved to be an overwhelming success, smashing box office records and becoming the second-highest grossing R-rated movie of all time. And now everyone’s favorite merc with a mouth is back for his second big screen outing which is sure to be a big hit with critics and audiences alike. Just a month ahead of its release, the final trailer for Deadpool 2 had dropped and promises even more violence and hilarity than we got in the first film. The franchise is known for making various pop culture references and homages such as Cocoon and Say Anything. The film is set to introduce a fan-favorite character, Cable, as well as set up a spinoff film for the X-Force.
Although not much is known about the plot of the newest installment in the X-Men franchise, we do know the film will see Cable travel from the future to collect some kid named Russell and the merc with a mouth will be forming his own team to protect him. The X-force will consist of such heroes as Domino, Bedlam, Shatterstar and some guy named Peter. Black Tom Cassady was set to be the villain of the sequel but, for some unspecified reason, that character will no longer be involved in this film. So while it’s unclear who the main villain will be, it still looks to be a fun time for superhero enthusiasts and fanboys alike.
The film is riding high off the success of its last movie and, while some critics believe Deadpool’s time has passed, I am fully confident that the film will be every bit as a big of a success as its predecessor. Josh Brolin has currently signed a four-picture deal to play the Chosen One so expect to see more of Cable in the future. Of course, the film production hasn’t been all fun and games as a stuntwoman died in a motorcycle accident during shooting of the sequel but, for the most part, they’ve been able to film without many hiccups. With much hype surrounding the film, it’s poised to do quite well at the box office during its opening weekend. The highly-anticipated sequel will be hitting theaters Friday, May 18 and we wish them much success.
“Acrimony” is the movie that is boxing out the competition when it comes to films about relationships. This is easy for Tyler Perry to do. This has become the thing that he is known for.
There were already movies for kids in 2018 like “Peter Rabbit” and “A Wrinkle in Time.” There are action packed movies out there like “Black Panther” that have hit the billion-dollar mark. There seemed to be something for everyone, but drama was missing. Perry supplied that.
The great thing about Tyler Perry is that he already has a formula in place. He knows what his fan base is interested in, and this is what allows him to make dramas where the people that support him will come out.
Many moviegoers were interested in seeing what the Taraji P Henson would do when it came to this movie. This is the type of role that she is good with. It is also the type of movie that allows her to do more of the things that are typical when it comes to aggression and fighting back. This is what Tyler Perry uses as the formula that gets moviegoers of the female persuasion to support his films.
There are many people that appreciate what Tyler Perry has done with black cinema. He has proven himself to be a champion when it comes to movies that are designed for relationship dramas. He has become someone that has perfected this in so many ways that it becomes easier for him to do these movies than it is for him to branch out into other areas like comedy. He has tried his hand in various comedy films, but drama seems to be his first love. It is always a thing that keeps people interested in what he is doing.
This movie made over $20 million first weekend. It has grossed twice as much in this time frame since it opened it. The reviews from critics have not been great, but it has still been able to draw a crowd. It has become a common thing for Tyler Perry films to get bad reviews but still do very well at the box office. This all hinges on the support of his fans that love these films.

Lucasfilm has recently been promoting their new movie, Solo: A Star Wars Story, which will be released in the United States on May 25th. The Hollywood Reporter recently announced that the movie will be releasing on May 25th in China as well. In an effort to promote the movie in China, Lucasfilm has renamed it Ranger Solo, omitting the “A Star Wars Story” portion of the title.
A new poster for the movie was also released in the UK today, where the release date for the movie is one day ahead of the US and China release dates. The poster features the heroes, as well as notably displaying two villains who have not been given much advertising as of yet – Enfys Nest and Dryden Vos, the first of whom continues to be seen only in her armor. So far, the announced cast includes Alden Ehrenreich as the dashing title character, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Woody Harrelson as Beckett, and Emilia Clarke as Kira, all of whom appear on the poster as well. Ehrenreich, Glover, and Clarke all have prominent roles on the new poster, as well as Chewbacca, Solo’s lovable and monstrous furry companion. The marketing so far for Solo: A Star Wars Story, looks very exciting, and it’s projected to earn $10 million in its opening weekend in the US.
The official trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story was released earlier this month on the 8th. It takes a somewhat different tone from many of the other Star Wars movies, appearing to be much more lighthearted than movies such as Rogue One and even more lighthearted than the main movies such as The Force Awakens, although it does highlight the dramatic nature that is common to all Star Wars movies. In it, the villain Enfys Nest asks Solo if he’s after revenge, as Solo removes the safety on his pistol. The trailer also highlights the relationship between Chewbacca and Solo, with Solo learning the true age of his companion and commenting that he looks great for 190 years old. The trailer also links to the main franchise, with Beckett instructing Solo to assume everyone will betray him.

The Tyler Perry fan base is strong. When ”Acrimony” was released it was number 2 at the box office on the opening weekend. This says a lot about the strength of the Tyler Perry and the fans that support all of his movies. He has proven himself to be a big box office success. This movie has made more than $40 million during the time that it has been in the box office.
There are a ton of people that are looking at the numbers, and some people may wonder how a movie like this could come in second place behind a Steven Spielberg movie. This is a great second spot when one considers the “Ready Player One” blockbuster. People that have come to know Tajai P. Henson are well-aware of the type of work that she does. They know that she has the talent to pull off this type of movie. It was just a matter of getting the word out about the movie.
Tyler Perry has been so busy with all of the televisions shows that he has created on OWN. It seems like there is a lot for Tyler Perry to handle, but he still found time to quietly sneak back into major films with “Acrimony.” This was the perfect time for the movie because Tajai P. Henson is on top of her game with “Empire” and the movie also features other actors from Tyler Perry TV shows. This makes it possible for these actors and actresses to transition from television to movie roles.
The fact of the matter is that Tyler Perry is someone that continues to work hard to go beyond what is expected. He is someone that creates relationship movies where women are wronged by their spouses. It is a formula that continues to draw more and more women to the Tyler Perry group of moviegoers that look forward to his new take on revenge.
There are men that will see this movie, but the core movie base for Tyler Perry films is typically comprised of women. They are the ones that will go to see these movies with their girlfriends. They will go in groups, and sisters and their mothers will also support this girl’s night out type of outing.
There are a lot of people that are looking for a chance to take their children to a movie. This is one of the main reasons that movies like “A Wrinkle in Time” have become so popular for the spring. This “Wrinkle in Time” film is something that has become a big deal because there is a lot of star power behind the film.
When people hear the name Oprah Winfrey they are going to gravitate towards it. This is what she made people do with this movie when she decided to promote it. With an all-star cast that also includes Mindy Kaling and Reese Witnerspoon this movie was going to draw in a huge crowd. Each of these stars have their own fan base. This allows the movie to span across a wide spectrum of people that may have never considered the movie if one of these stars was not in this movie. This is what Oprah knew when she was going in so it was a good choice to incorporate women that were Indian, Caucasian and African American. There is also a bi-racial actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw that is in an interracial relationship with Chris Pine. This cast covers a whole lot of ground.
The film was directed by Ava DuVernay. This was a big deal for a black director to have access to this type of big budget. Ava had a big budget to work with because she had already proven herself in “Selma.” She had also become someone that was making a mark in Black Hollywood and a female director that was taking the center stage. What the “Wrinkle in Time” essentially represents is another step in the powerful movement of women. This is really the message that goes forth when people look at this movie.
This is a film that is an adaptation of a book, and it is perfect for present day times. There are issues about self-esteem that are discussed. There are concepts about conquering your fears. It is the perfect movie for kids, but parents will also be able to get something out of this movie as well. That is why it makes it easy for families to embrace the movie. It pulls in a diverse moviegoer crowd.
Infinity War Set to Be Second Most Expensive Film Produced
Avengers: Infinity War is due out in theaters one week from now, and is sure to be one of the most, if not the most highly anticipated films for the year.
So it should come as no surprise that the movie’s reported production budget was among the highest ever, in fact being the second most expensive film ever produced, not including any inflation rates. It’s a well known fact that most movies nowadays are not cheap to produce, but given the fact that Infinity War was meant to conclude a story that has been steadily building over a decade, Marvel Studios was eventually going to have to spend a bit more money.
The fact that there is a large number of cast members involved with filming alone means a lot of money was going to have to be spent on production. Luckily, the Marvel Cinematic Universe hasn’t had a problem with money, considering they are a $14 billion enterprise that has made nothing but solid hits at the box office since it was first started.
In fact, the team-up films in the franchise have been the most expensive as far as budgets go, with Captain America: Civil War costing $250 million to make and Avengers: Age of Ultron being made for $279.8 million. Infinity War, which was said to have a production around $300 million, will be one of the few films that exceeds the aforementioned two, making it one of the most expensive films ever made. It would actually make it a three-way tie with Justice League and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End for second highest budget.
Despite the number for the huge production budget, Marvel Studios isn’t the least bit concerned about making a profit off of the film. With all of the hype and anticipation to the conclusion of this ten-year story, Infinity War could prove to be a rival for The Force Awakens in terms of breaking the box office record for an opening weekend. Reaching the $1 billion box office club is almost a guarantee at this point, with everything in mind.
