NEWS - Safe House, The Avengers and Die Hard 5

There hasn't been any stand out news for this week, but a couple of things have sprung out at me each time I have done a little research.

Safe House Tops Box Office Chart

This may seem like a small piece of news but after the average reviews it has been recieving, it is good to see that it has emerged as the one to beat, over taking The Vow into top spot. Denzel Washington obviously still has the pulling power and I'm pretty sure Mr Ryan Reynolds had a big part to play in that aswell.

Another thing that was interesting in the U.S Box Office was that Ghost Rider 2 has horribly plummeted down the charts, which doesn't surprise me considering the poor reception any Nicolas Cage film seems to receive at the moment. Read up tomorrow where I will be discussing this weeks releases and Safe House is one of them.

New Images For The Avengers

I thought this new image may be good to show you, seeing as The Avengers is a film highly anticipated by audiences world wide. I'm still not sure whether or not I am overly excited considering it seems like they will be trying to cram too much into a single movie. Hopefully Joss Whedon can pull it off and bring through something all comic book fans will love.

The image shows Captain America (Chris Evans), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) heading off to take care of business. Lets hope it is something big and explosive.

Die Hard 5 Gets A New Lead

Have no fear Die Hard fans, Bruce Willis will be returning, however in a new twist we will see his son, who is just as much an adrenaline action junky as his Father himself. Cast in the role is Jai Courtney, best known for TV drama Spartacus: Blood and Sand. Do we need another Die Hard? Was number 4 enough to tell us to not retread on the franchise? Obviously not. Let's pray they change the title though: it is going to be called A Good Day To Die Hard!!! Oh Christ.

  1. "How can the same shit happen to the same guy twice?" That's what John McClane said in Die Hard 2. How can the same shit happen to the same guy five times? Well that's just being careless. I love the Die Hard films but the last one was made for a 12a audience and it showed. The DVD release with added swearing made up for it a little but it's lost it's edge now. They might as well call it Die Hard and Son.
