‘Avengers 4’ Trailer Finally Arrives

Things look pretty bleak for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

That’s the takeaway from the first trailer for the fourth “Avengers” movie — a sequel that finds Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) scrambling to concoct a plan to defeat Thanos, the intergalactic baddie who destroyed half of all life in the universe in the previous installment. The highly anticipated new film, titled “Avengers: Endgame,” hits theaters on April 26, 2019.

As fanboys and fangirls will remember, “Avengers: Infinity War” ended with the team in ruins and half of its members apparently disintegrated. The trailer for “Endgame” finds Iron Man floating in space with only a day’s worth of oxygen available. Given his diminishing chances for survival, Tony Stark’s sardonic side appears to have lost some of its edge. Back on Earth, Cap and Black Widow are cooking something up, but they don’t appear to be acting from a position of strength.

“We lost friends,” says Cap. “We lost family. We lost part of ourselves. This is the fight of our lives.”

“This is gonna work,” Black Widow reassures him.

“I know it is, because I don’t know what I’m going to do if it doesn’t,” he replies.

“Infinity War” directors Anthony and Joe Russo, and screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely return for the new installment. The cast includes a cavalcade of spandexed stars, among them Benedict Cumberbatch (Dr. Strange), Tom Holland (Spider-Man), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), and Mark Ruffalo (Hulk).

Avengers assemble … just hopefully not for the final time.

    How many twists can a plot undergo before it snaps?

    Film Review: 'The Last to See Them'

    Truman Capote’s “In Cold Blood” stretches long as a late-evening shadow over Italian director Sara Summa’s feature debut “The Last to See Them.” The Italian title, “Gli Ultimi Viderli Vivere” which translates literally to “The Last to See Them Alive,” is also the heading of the opening chapter of Capote’s book. The setting is, similarly, [...]

    Events leading to the 1947 Partition of India serve as the forebodingly serious backdrop for the exhaustingly overextended razzmatazz of “Kalank,” writer-director Abhishek Varman’s lavish but ponderous Bollywood extravaganza, which opened in the U.S. on more than 300 screens the same day as its Indian release. Despite the preponderance of sets and costumes spectacular enough [...]
