I don't know it just looked weird to me. He actually didn't fire the gun but just pulled it out as if he was going to try. As for him being a sharpshooter, I had no idea, pretty much knowing nothing about him going into the movie. I am sure they meant it as just a reflexive move but to me it just looked off. They could have had him throw something in frustration or show some sort of emotional frustration instead but maybe that is not the nature of the character either?
Have a Disney Day!
You don't have to walk on water, it's how you walk on land.
A billion dollars and counting. The Avengers is the 12th movie to reach the Billion Dollar club. On the other hand. I just saw the movie yesterday because I have a problem with dark crowded movie theaters and claustrophobia. I saw the movie with about 10 people total in the audience total. At $12 a pop because it was a 3D showing that's about $120 that our theater contributed to The Avengers pot of gold.
PS: Disney has 5 of the 12 movies in The Billion Dollar club: POTC: Dead Man's Chest ($1,106.6), Toy Story 3 ($1,106.3), POTC: On Stranger Tides ($1,104.3), Alice In Wonderland ($1,102.4), The Avengers ($1,000.4). The Avengers in all likelihood will end up being Disney's highest grossing film.
The 2 James Cameron films - Avatar and Titanic are the only movies to have earned over 2 billion dollars in box office receipts.
We also saw it Tuesday night. (Bargain day at our theatre all showings all day are $6, with 3D showings $3 more.) Our Theatre was full! I don't think there was a single seat left anywhere.
I loved it. Whistler and I really liked some of the oneliners. Especially at least one fairly obscure movie reference.
I am also thinking A needs to watch more super hero movies, she kept asking questions.
So now after this weekend, The Avengers is up to 1.2 billion dollars in world-wide box office receipts. It is the 4th highest grossing film of all time and now Disney's biggest money making film. It sunk a Battleship this weekend.
Saw the movie again last night because our son hadn't seen it. On a Saturday night, the theater was still pretty close to being full (far more people that when I saw it as a matinee last Monday). Saw it in 3D again, I think with the 2D showings the theaters were completely filled judging by comments of people in the hallway. Not sure if it can take down Avatar or Titanic but there's a Harry Potter kid about to go down.
And I don't think there is going to be a lot of competition from a Spiderman or a Dark Knight. Previews to those two movies don't seem to how much of a "Wow!" factor.
The viper is flown from the seated position.
Good thing, too.
