Ok, so Infinity War is getting a steelbook but only from zavvi. You can choose from 3D plus blu (don't have a 3D tv) or 4k uhd plus blu (don't have a 4k tv), 24.99 and 32.99 respectively.

I think when we're paying 33 for a mainstream title we're in trouble!
Does anyone else think the steelbook price hike is a bit nuts? Shape of Water in hmv is 25. Last one i bought was IT @ 17. Think I'll stop now if they are going to be 30 a pop!

Unbreakable (M Night All! )

Watching a film where Broooce wanders about in a hoodie ... I thought "Where have I seen that before??"
So digging out the only MNS flick I ever liked ....

David Willis appears to lead a 'charmed' life, but hasn't let it go to his head it seems. But when a creepy weirdo starts telling him that he is actually a cape in the making, his world gets tirned upside down. A film that hasn't aged well at all ... it takes too long to 'set up the premise' and if indeed a 'sequel' of sorts IS coming .... then Shangalang's crown (King Of Shiiite) is secure.
Twist literally negates entire film. Must have been pissed first time

Upgrade (2018)

A chap who looks awfy like Tom Hardy is dealt a bit of bad luck. So when a Watchmen clone asks him, in that whispery way, if he needs a bit of help ..... . A genuinely different take on the genre imho. Can't remember that last time I watched a film and thought "I want to see more of this ..."
Recommmended.

Avengers Endgame broke all records in it's first five days at the global box office bringing in a whopping 1.2 billion dollars.

There's no way Disney will stand for this being the last one. I'm sure they'll quickly get a new film into production where Stark builds a TARDIS and reverts history so they can all go again.

With 'Avengers: Endgame' being the last of the 'first wave' of Marvel films, I'm wondering if 'Howard The Duck' is being lined up for inclusion in the 'second wave'

After all, he was featured in the post-credit sequence of the first 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' film

I've read there is going to be an animated adult TV series of Howard the Duck.
Don't know if it's still on the cards.

Yeah, Kevin Smith is working on a Howard the Duck animated series. There's some information in this link:

It's interesting that despite all the hype around Avengers: Endgame and it's record breaking opening UK weekend of 43,400,000, it basically fizzled out quite quickly and only managed 87m in the UK. Don't get me wrong, it's not a failure but it didn't do as well as expected and came in at number 5 on the all time chart.

SW: The Force Awakens - 123.2m
Skyfall - 103.2
Spectre - 95.2
Avatar - 94.0
Avengers: Endgame - 94.0
