I find it very refreshing (sarcasm mode on) that after a rather mediocre episode last week, we get back to basics with the “Marvel’s Avengers Assemble” series. Basics of course being having the Avengers face villains not traditionally their usual foes. I can’t help wondering if I’ll have to wait for a new X-Men cartoon to see folks like Kang, Ultron, and the Masters of Evil. Anyway, meet me after the jump as the Avengers (or more specifically the Hulk and Hawkeye) fight another old X-Men villain in “Mojo World.”
It was a simply stellar weekend for two new films at the box office, both of which performed exceptionally well. Here’s what went down:
300: Rise of a Nation debut at number one with $45 million. Thought far off from the original 300’s $70+ debut back in 2007, this is still a very strong number. Audiences clearly were interested in returning to the amazing visual world the original created. It will definitely be interesting to see how the film holds up over the coming weeks, bout for now, it’s got bragging rights.
