While we’re on Election Week break with the Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series, I thought I’d take a peek at the ongoing Marvel comic of the same name. I wrote about S.H.I.E.L.D. #1 about a year ago here, but a lot has happened since then, including this ongoing series. The Agents have become firmly rooted in the Marvel Universe of the comics, and even embroiled in Civil War II. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – the comic series.
A new, non-franchise science fiction film arrives in theaters this weekend. Will it find an audience? Here’s our prediction:
Arrival stars Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner, and has been buzzed about for months now. The film is about the arrival of aliens on Earth, but appears to be taking a more cerebral approach rather than an ID4 ‘let’s blow ’em to hell’ one. How that plays out with audiences is the question, though considering the complete lack of interest in the Independence Day sequel, this may be the sci-fi film people are looking for. However, Arrival will have to contend with the Doctor Strange, so don’t expect to see it in the top spot. Arrival should debut in third place with $19 million.
