“I’m here to talk to you about the Avenger Initiative.”
Ten years have passed since Nick Fury uttered those words to Tony Stark in 2008’s Iron Man, the film that kicked off the Marvel Cinematic Universe. What felt like nothing more than a tease of an unlikely promise eventually came to fruition four years later in what was, at that point, one of the most daring ensemble features: The Avengers. Since then, Marvel Studios never looked back, expanding the world that once featured a mere six heroes to a galaxy that features over 30. With Avengers: Infinity War being pegged as the final chapter in the MCU as fans currently know it, audiences knew that the first of this two-parter, one which sees the long-anticipated Thanos (Josh Brolin) finally make his way to earth, would come at a high cost.

The idea that a woman in modern society can feel confident about her appearance and capable of success is apparently a foreign concept to the creators of Amy Schumer’s latest comedy film, I Feel Pretty. The film has faced some pretty harsh backlash from the release of its first trailer and I have to say, after watching the film, that it is absolutely deserved. This is a film which attempts to convince women to feel better about themselves and what they look like, but it doesn’t even believe in its own message.
Avengers: Infinity War is the culminating chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s 10-year run, one which has seen our heroes go toe-to-toe with the likes of a sentient killer android, a literal goddess of death, and even an aged Michael Keaton. In Infinity War, the stakes are upped as the Avengers face their most daunting challenge yet: The Mad Titan Thanos, one of the strongest beings in the universe, and his Black Order. While the Avengers have managed to avoid significant losses to their core in their past battles, the odds are that not everyone will make it out of this fight alive. With the film set to hit theaters tomorrow night, we asked you which characters you thought were most likely to die. Here are the top three likely deaths, according to you.
When I first saw the trailer for Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare (2018), I was excited at the prospect of a horror film with a premise so laughably dumb that some sick enjoyment could be taken from it. Unfortunately, Truth or Dare is yet another embarrassing, pandering, and tone-deaf horror flick, suffering from mediocre characters, inconsistent logic, and a general lack of originality.
