It turns out I picked a crappy week to start highlighting the weekly theatrical film releases for Vagary. It is not the quality of the film releasing this week that is in question, just the fact that well… there is only one film releasing this week.
That’s right, after years of setup, Marvel’s The Avengers finally hits the big screen. Opening in 4349 theaters, the film is about as a wide release as wide releases get. My personal anticipation is high for this one and early buzz has been highly positive (as of this publication it holds a 93% positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes). If you are a fan of comic book/superhero films The Avengers is one that probably shouldn’t be missed.
Recommendation: See It
