After two unfortunate 'Punisher' movies (we're going to forget the old Dolph Lundgren version), Marvel Studios got the rights back to the franchise and many hoped that would mean big things for Frank Castle. The fanboy flames were stoked even further when there was a glimpse of what appeared to be The Punisher's iconic skull logo in 'Iron Man 3.' Could this be laying the groundwork for The Punisher in future Marvel movies?
Iron Man 3
There was definitely something apocalyptic about the 2013 summer movie season, and we’re not just talking about the movies themselves.
While major releases, like ‘This Is the End,’ ‘Oblivion,’ ‘Pacific Rim‘ and ‘Elysium,’ dealt with the end of the world, Hollywood appeared to be on the verge of collapse out in the real world. Films that looked like surefire hits flopped; surefire disasters proved to be more disastrous than everyone predicted; the handful of films without numbers in their titles stumbled; and, from the sidelines, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas smirked, shrugged and predicted the end of the moviegoing experience as we know it.
So, what exactly happened here? More importantly, what does this mean for the future of studio filmmaking? It’s easy to imagine Hollywood looking at what happened this summer and learning plenty of lessons; but, maybe, not always the right ones.
'Iron Man 3' comes out on DVD and Blu-ray this September 24 with a butt-load of extra features, including a preview of the upcoming 'Thor 2' on the Blu-ray. You're gonna want to own that 'Iron Man 3' Blu-ray and you can get a taste of the incredible special features with a tease of 'Thor: The Dark World' right now.
If you've seen 'Iron Man 3' (or even the many trailers), you know that there are many Iron Man armors in the movie. But, there were almost many more. As the 'Iron Man 3' DVD and Blu-ray approaches in September, we now have a brief look at some of the 'Iron Man 3' armors that were designed for the movie, but never used.
Now that 'Iron Man 3' has officially passed the $400 million mark at the box office, Tony Stark's third solo adventure is just about to leave theaters and head straight to your home media collection. In a few months, you'll be able to purchase Shane Black's delightful superhero adventure for yourself on DVD and Blu-ray, but will it be worth it? Marvel has released the details of the package to help you decide if the special features will push this one into the "must buy" column for you.
It's only recently been officially declared summertime, but for many the season has been in full bloom since the first weekend of May when 'Iron Man 3' pummeled everything in its path. Now, as the months roll on, the superhero everyone is talking about is Superman, thanks to 'Man of Steel.' So which superhero packed the most punch for you?
As always, the extended Memorial Day weekend proved to be a busy couple of days at the box office, with 'Fast and Furious 6' shattering every expectation in its first three days of release (as we reported right here). Meanwhile, 'The Hangover Part 3', uh, did not. But this is a four day weekend! How are both films looking to fare when the holidays are over and all of the dust has settled?
Surprise! 'Iron Man 3' has made a lot of money. We know no one saw this coming but the juggernaut that is Marvel continues to truck on as 'Iron Man 3' officially passed $1 billion in worldwide box-office late last night making it the 16th biggest film of all time, passing 'Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone' and 'Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End' on the list. The only question left is...how high can it go?
