Bad News, Marvel Confirmed Shuri’s Death In Avengers: Infinity War

For months, the fate of Letitia Wright’s Shuri in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was a mystery. Despite having a prominent role in Avengers: Infinity War, the blockbuster never showed audiences what happened to the character after Thanos snapped his fingers with the completed Infinity Gauntlet, so we were all left in the dark regarding how she fared during The Decimation.

Admittedly the first trailer for Avengers: Endgame released in December 2018 did provide us with a solid lead – showing her on a monitor as being among the world’s dead heroes – but now it looks like we have official confirmation courtesy of the new movie’s character posters: Shuri got dusted.

Earlier today Marvel Studios released a grand total of 32 new one-sheets for Avengers: Endgame, and during the rollout it wasn’t hard to discover a pattern: all of the living characters are featured in color, and all of the dead ones are in black-and-white. There were a few exciting surprises mixed in, such as revelations regarding Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie, Benedict Wong’s Wong, and Jon Favreau’s Happy Hogan (all revealed to be alive), but the artwork also seems to confirm that Shuri was one of Thanos’ many, many victims.

This isn’t really a surprise for those who took the information provided in the first Avengers: Endgame trailer at face value, but it’s understandable why some people questioned the preview’s credulity. After all, Shuri’s face was featured right next to a picture of Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang on the aforementioned monitor, and the very end of that footage showed Scott very much alive and at the front door of the Avengers facility. Also, Joe and Anthony Russo have confirmed that marketing material has been doctored to protect certain elements of the movie, so who knows what we can really trust?

All that being said, there actually was good reason to believe when the first trailer said that Shuri was counted among the Decimated. After all, her situation at the time of the Thanos snap was a lot different than Scott Lang’s. None of the heroes specifically knew where Scott was when half of life in the universe was eliminated, so when he didn’t turn up after the event it was just assumed that he was dusted (the reality actually being that he was trapped in the Quantum Realm). Shuri, on the other hand, was present in Wakanda with the Avengers battling against the Black Order and their Outriders, so the team knew exactly where she should have been… and clearly she wasn’t there.

This is obviously a bummer, as Shuri is one of the most exciting new characters featured in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and audiences are hungry to see more of her in big screen adventures. I guess this just means that fans will be rooting that much harder that the heroes will somehow be able to reverse the events of Avengers: Infinity War and save the fallen.

As of today we now just have one month to wait for the arrival of Avengers: Endgame, and excitement is near the point of boiling over. Obviously we’ll been covering the hell out of it here on CinemaBlend for the next few weeks, so stay tuned as we get closer and closer.

Watch the Trailer for Noah Centineo and Camila Mendes’ Netflix Rom-Com The Perfect Date

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before alum Noah Centineo is already the Internet’s boyfriend, so his next role isn’t too much of a stretch given that it’s literally called The Perfect Date. In it, he plays a guy who gets paid to be a dream date for young women—so, yeah, the casting decision couldn’t have been better.

The trailer, which Netflix just released today, only adds to the appeal. It introduces us to Centineo as Brooks Rattigan, a high school senior who hopes to attend Yale but doesn’t have the money for the expensive tuition. “I’ve always wanted to date the most popular girl, drive the nicest car and go to the fanciest school. But I can’t afford any of that,” he says in the clip.

To get some extra cash, he ends up escorting Celia Lieberman (played by Laura Marano) to a school dance. It goes so well that it inspires a plan: create an app where people can pay him to be their plus-one at events. His job is to take on the role of whatever stand-in boyfriend they need for the occasion. In the trailer alone, he pretends to be a cowboy, an art connoisseur, and more.

Watch, below:

Because this is a romantic comedy, of course things eventually get knotty. Rattigan starts dating his crush Shelby Pace—played by Riverdale favorite Camila Mendes—and starts living out some rich kid fantasies that distance him from his friends. Naturally, there’s a tricky love triangle with Shelby and Celia to deal with too. (Fun fact: Marano and Centineo actually worked with each other on Austin & Ally back in the day.)

Centineo, of course, brings all the Peter Kavinsky charm that made him a breakout star in To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before (and, hopefully one day soon, the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before sequel).

The Perfect Date is out on April 12 on Netflix, so mark your calendars and prepare to swoon.

Ben Affleck Seems Down To Return For Jay And Silent Bob Reboot

For the films set in his View Askewniverse, writer and director Kevin Smith often tapped a recurring group of actors to play the same or different roles in each film. And one of the staples of the View Askewniverse was Ben Affleck. So naturally, with many Kevin Smith regulars returning for Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, people are wondering if Ben Affleck will join them, and he seems down to do so. Responding to a question about whether he would make an appearance he said:

As it currently stands, Ben Affleck is not set to show up in Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, but he certainly sounds open to the idea and he definitely didn’t shoot down the possibility as something he’s not interested in. If Kevin Smith would like Ben Affleck to join in the festivities with his former View Askewniverse mates, he can call him up before production is over.

Jay and Silent Bob Reboot is still filming so as Ben Affleck says, there is still time. And while he probably wouldn’t have a major role at this point, he certainly could show up for a cameo as small as his one in Clerks II or maybe even something a little larger like his part in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. If Kevin Smith does ask him to make an appearance, Ben Affleck has a preference to which character he’d play.

Like Jason Lee, Joey Lauren Adams and Brian O’Halloran, Ben Affleck has played multiple characters in the View Askewniverse. Save for his fallen angel Bartleby from Dogma, the two most obvious characters he could return as are Holden McNeil and Shannon Hamilton. If it were between these two, Affleck would much prefer to return as Holden than Shannon, as he told Collider.

Holden McNeil appeared in two View Askewniverse films. First he was the protagonist in Chasing Amy, where he was the co-creator of the Bluntman and Chronic comic book, the comic book based on Jay and Silent Bob that Hollywood was adapting in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Holden appeared in that film as well, where he introduced Jay and Silent Bob to the internet and the movie being made about them in an incredibly prophetic look at online movie culture. You can watch part of that scene below.

Given his appearance in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Holden seems the most natural choice to return for the sequel, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, as opposed to the scumbag statutory rapist Shannon Hamilton from Mallrats. Holden is also the character Ben Affleck would prefer, although he clarifies that he would defer to Kevin Smith. So it doesn’t seem like Shannon would be a deal breaker.

Hopefully Kevin Smith does give Ben Affleck a call. It would be great to see him return to the View Askewniverse, and just have some fun in this silly comedy. He could reprise his role as Holden and again make a meta commentary about online culture, this time slipping in a hilarious reference to the Batfleck of it all.

Ben Affleck also played himself in a different scene in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, so maybe he could do that again in this lampooning of Hollywood, finally letting us know if Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season got a sequel to complete the trilogy.

Jay and Silent Bob Reboot is currently filming. We’ll keep you updated when it gets an official release date and in the meantime, check out our 2019 Release Schedule to see the movies headed your way this year.

New Shazam! Clip Shows Billy Figuring Out How To Transform

Coming off the discovery of the MCU’s introduction of the little-known origin story of Carol Danvers earlier this month, moviegoers will soon discover 14-year-old Billy Batson’s fantastic abilities when he becomes Shazam! next weekend. What looks to be especially fun about DC’s next entry is audiences will get to learn of the superhero’s powers as he does and through the eyes of two teenage boys.

More early looks of Shazam! have been making its way to us in anticipation for the upcoming release, including this new clip teasing how Billy Batson’s transformation into an adult superhero works. Check it out:

The minute snippet from the film seems to take place shortly after Billy Batson (Asher Angel) becomes Shazam (Zachary Levi) for the first time, and is sneaking back into his foster home with Freddy (Jack Dylan Grazer) in the evening, hoping to go unnoticed. One of his foster sisters Darla, played by Faithe Herman (who This Is Us fans may notice as Annie Pearson) sees the superhero’s flashy costume and is about to react before Shazam! covers her mouth.

Shazam then attempts to explain to Darla of the unbelievable circumstances. He’s Billy and a wizard approached him and made him look like … well Zachary Levi in a muscly red and yellow suit. He says the word “shazam” again, which is what made him a superhero in the first place and he is turned back to his teenage self much to his surprise.

It’s a fun explainer about how Billy will learn of one of his many abilities and means he will most definitely be able to switch in and out of his alter ego throughout the film. With little Darla in on the secret, I can see the movie having some funny moments with her where she tries to keep the secret but lets things slip, since she said she’s “moderate” at keeping them.

As other early looks of Shazam! Have shown, Billy and Freddy will also learn about Shazam’s ability of flight, super strength, super speed, invulnerability and power to summon lightning in some hilarious ways that will get them geeking out – a fun change of pace from the typical hero unphased by the amazing things they can do.

Shazam! seems to be doing a successful job of peaking the interest of fans and we can’t wait to see the pair of foster kids learn the scope of the superhero’s fun scope of abilities and take on the film’s villian Dr. Sivana (Mark Strong) when the film hits theaters on April 5.

8 Genius Skin Care Tips That’ll Give You Clearer Skin for Free

The best things in life really are free, even when it comes to your beauty routine. But taking care of your skin can be a big investment (hi, lasers and serums), so we’re always down for skin care tips that don’t take a huge bite out of our paychecks.

Which is what led us here: We’ve asked top skin care experts to give us their best advice. And the part we love the most? Not one thing below costs a single penny (assuming you already have most of these things in your kitchen).

Give Yourself a Face Massage

Got puffy eyes? No problem. Sure, you could stock up on eye cream…or you could use your fingers to give yourself an under-eye massage. “Use your ring fingers to press gently on the orbital bone, moving from the inner to outer corner of your eyes and repeating two to three times,” says celebrity facialist Cecilia Wong. “This will not only stimulate circulation, but it also helps minimize fine lines and reduce inflammation.”

Celebrity facialist and La Mer global skin care advisor [Georgia Louise] is also a huge proponent of massage all over your face to stimulate collagen and activate product. “Your hands are your most powerful weapon,” she says.

Chill Out

Literally. Louise loves her signature Facial Freeze Tools to depuff and sculpt your face, but if you’re looking for a budget option she loves this Old Hollywood trick: wash your face using ice water.

“I think it’s awesome to have a mega rinse with cool water if your skin is in need of refreshing,” she says. Not only does the chilly temperature make you feel more awake, it can quickly reduces puffiness, tighten pores, and calm inflammation.

Switch Your Pillowcase

We hate to add to laundry to your to-do list, but keeping your pillows clean is a top beauty secret. Pillowcases can hang on to dirt, oil, and bacteria from our faces, hair, and environment, and can become a breeding ground for acne. Try to swap out you pillow at least once a week to reduce the risk of a breakout.

Louise recommends a silk pillowcase to “really ensure your products are penetrating and won’t escape from your skin.” Sure, it’s money, but if you are looking to invest in a solid option, we’re huge fans of Slip’s Silk Pillowcases ($85), which not only helps ward off wrinkles (no creases in your pillow equals no long-term creases on your skin), but also make your hair shinier too.

Sleep on Your Back

Don’t worry. We’re not going to tell you to get eight hours of sleep, which is probably the oldest free skin care tip in the book. Because as essential as how much sleep you’re getting is the position in which you sleep. It really does matter. “After UV exposure, the second most common cause of wrinkles is squishing your face into a pillow at night,” says celebrity esthetician Renée Rouleau. “It’s like ironing wrinkles into your skin.” Sleeping on your back is ideal, since even pressing your cheek into a pillow can cause lines.

Put Some Salt on It

You’ve got two options here: You could ice a zit to help bring the inflammation down or even better (and maybe more comfortable): You could salt it. “Sea salt has powerful antibacterial properties and works to pull oil from the pore,” says Karen Young, founder of Oui Shave. She recommends combining one teaspoon of sea salt with enough water to form a paste. Dot this on the offending zit, let it dry for up to an hour (10 minutes for sensitive skin types) and then rinse it off.

Avengers: Endgame Celebrates One Month To Release With Revealing New Character Posters

It’s been a big day for Avengers: Endgame as the runtime for the big movie program has been revealed. In addition, since we are officially one month out from the release of the final Marvel movie in Phase Three, Marvel is also giving us a taste of what’s to come with some brand new character posters. First up is Captain Marvel herself Brie Larson.

Since we are on a captain theme, it seems only fitting to include a look at Captain America’s new poster next.

Thor is looking “mighty” good for someone who failed to stop Thanos thanks to choosing to stab the man in the wrong place.

Since there should be a lot of female power in Avengers: Endgame, let’s go ahead and take a look at Black Widow actress Scarlett Johansson’s cool poster.

The first Avengers: Endgame trailer also focused on Tony Stark as we saw him running out of air and energy in space. He looks pretty serious in his character poster for the upcoming movie as well.

Getting a little furrier, next we have a look at Rocket, courtesy of the Guardians of the Galaxy official page.

Hulk is looking remarkably Bruce Banner-y, and honestly I kind of miss seeing him in the Hulkbuster armor. Anyone else?

We’ve seen Ant-Man somehow miraculously returned from the Quantim Realm after the events in Ant-Man and the Wasp in the early footage for Avengers: Endgame. So no surprise he’s looking “fly” here.

Danai Gurira is looking fierce as usual in her poster.

Now, what do all of these posters so far have in common? They just so happen to be in color. Which leads us to the next set of posters in black and white. First up is Black Panther himself, played by Chadwick Boseman.

Then Loki, who took a stand against Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, also gets a somber poster:

Nick Fury, who we saw become part of The Decimation during the end-credits scenes in Infinity War also gets a brand new look. (Although if you want to see him alive and well and with two eyes, all you need to do is go see Captain Marvel.)

Vision, who was a key focal point thanks to the mind stone in Infinity War, ultimately yielded the stone to Thanos, losing his life.

Like Vision, his partner Scarlet Witch is also in black and white.

Many of the Guardians of the Galaxy will not be around in Endgame. There’s Pom Klementieff, who plays Mantis.

Although she was not sacrificed during The Decimation, and was instead sacrificed prior to The Decimation in order to help Thanos achieve his goal, Gamora is also given a poster.

Like Mantis and the Guardians, Doctor Strange ultimately made a choice that impacted Tony Stark, as well as his own existence.

What do these posters have in common? They are similar to early promotional material for Avengers: Endgame highlighting the characters who were snapped out of existence by Thanos whilst the big baddie was using the Infinity Gauntlet.

Which leads us to the last set of posters, posters that should make you pretty “Happy.”

Looks like Happy is confirmed to be alive, which is good news given the last time we saw Jon Favreau’s character was in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

If all of this holds true, other characters are also confirmed to be alive, including Pepper Potts. This makes sense given some of the rumors about the character and Tony Stark when Endgame picks up.

Gwyneth Paltrow alive in avengers: endgame

Also Valkyrie, which interests me greatly given that character verbally spars with Thor a lot and we’ve seen in the trailers that Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel also seems to have good verbal rapport. Of course there’s plenty of space for multiple characters to potentially get quippy with Thor and I can’t wait to see it pan out.

Next, Wong is confirmed to be alive, so even if Doctor Strange didn’t fare so well, his compatriot still seems to be doing OK on Earth. Well, at least OK given the circumstances.

These have been coming fast and furiously for a little while now, so if we missed any be sure to let us know. In the meantime, this is a helluva way to kick off the month-long countdown until Avengers: Endgame is released on April 26. Check out what we know is coming with our full guide.  If you’d like to see from characters such as Hawkeye, Thor and more whom we have already seen in Avengers: Endgame footage, be sure to check out the full look at the characters on Facebook.

Meghan Markle Might Be Returning to Television

We all know that before she became the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle was a working actress, most famous for her role as Rachel Zane on the USA show Suits. And like most actors and actresses, she auditioned and shot a bunch of pilots before landing her big break.

Now, one of those shows that never aired might make its debut. During an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Max Greenfield (a.k.a. Schmidt from New Girl) talked about a pilot he shot many, many years ago with Meghan Markle. It was called The Boys and Girls Guide to Getting Down for Comedy Central and also featured actor Adam Pally of Happy Endings and The Mindy Project fame. (For those of you less familiar, studios and networks shoot numerous pilots, or single episodes of a show, and then decide after watching them which ones will be picked up for more filming.)

Greenfield says they filmed the show a decade,”or even more,” ago. “I got some sort of email recently saying this person has bought it and they are putting it out,” he explained. “I was like, ‘Great. Good for you.’ I would assume they would have their reasons as to why they’re putting it out.” He doesn’t know where the episode might air, though. The Hollywood Reporter describes the show as a “tongue-in-cheek look at twenty-something singles clubbing and partying in Los Angeles.”

Sadly, Greenfield and Markle didn’t stay in touch. “Meghan and I, we didn’t connect after that or during that,” he said. “Look, had I known, I maybe would’ve played my cards a little differently.”

This pilot is more proof the “Markle Sparkle” is real. Its power knows no bounds—or time periods, apparently. The Television Academy isn’t ready, but I definitely am. Clear your queues, people.

This New Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams Interview Adds Fuel to a Big Game of Thrones Theory

When I wake up in the morning, my first thought is, “Who’s going to win the Iron Throne on Game of Thrones?” OK, that’s an exaggeration, but I am curious, as are the millions of people who watch Game of Thrones. Last week, we published a theory positing it’s Daenerys Targaryen who ends up on the Iron Throne when it’s all said and done. But it’s a new day, and there’s a new theory suggesting that—wait for—Sansa Stark nabs the throne by the series finale.

The evidence? Sophie Turner (Sansa) and Maisie Williams‘ (Arya) new interview with Rolling Stone. What Turner says and Rolling Stone writes both suggest things turn out well for Sansa in the GoT finale. Read this excerpt, below:

“The things that girl has gone through are just unbelievable and awful,” [Turner] says. Sansa’s was a slow journey toward mastery of her environment; she was always smarter than she might have seemed, with Turner showing us just how acutely she examined her world through crystalline blue eyes.

This might not seem like much, but pair it with this excerpt in which we learn Turner was so happy with the GoT ending, she hung up the final scene in her house:

She was particularly moved when [showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss] presented her with a storyboard of their favorite Sansa scene, which happened to be her very last scene of the entire show. Tur­ner already has it hanging at home; no one’s noticed.

So what in that scene was so exciting, it propelled Turner to display it proudly? Winning the Iron Throne, perhaps? At this point, it’s the only explanation that comes to my mind.

Of course, this is all hearsay, but compare it to what Emilia Clarke (Daenerys) said last year about how Game of Thrones ends for her character. “It fucked me up,” she told Vanity Fair. “Knowing that is going to be a lasting flavor in someone’s mouth of what Daenerys is.”

It’s clear from this Clarke is not pleased with Daenerys’ trajectory, which means the Iron Throne probably isn’t in her cards. That leaves it wide open for Sansa Stark, and I hope she claims it.

We’ll find out the answer for sure when Game of Thrones returns Sunday, April 14 at 8 P.M. on HBO

James Wan Shares First Photo From Annabelle Comes Home

Director James Wan has been in the business for many years, but he’s currently enjoying arguably his biggest success to date. Wan’s DC debut Aquaman has helped Warner Bros.’ shared universe bounce back, and the blockbuster was a critical and financial success. What’s more, a sequel and spinoff are already in development. But Wan’s roots are ultimately in the horror world, and he’ll step back into the genre in a big way with Annabelle Comes Home, the upcoming threequel that he’s producing.

James Wan introduced Annabelle to audiences when the creepy roll first popped up in The Conjuring, as the Warrens recounted some of their paranormal cases. She made enough of an impact that a spinoff movie was produced, aptly named Annabelle. It’s sequel Annabelle: Creation improved on the franchise, and the upcoming threequel will include Vera Farmiga and Patrick Stewart’s return to their Conjuring characters. Wan just revealed the first glimpse at Annabelle Comes Home, check it out below.

Annabelle is back, and this time she’s got some friends with her. Annabelle Comes Home will bring us back to the Warren’s house, especially their terrifying room of haunted artifacts. And this poster teases that the haunted doll has some tricks up her little sleeve.

Annabelle Comes Home will focus largely on the Warren’s daughter Judy, who we’ve seen a few times throughout the Conjuring franchise. This time she’ll be played by young actress Mckenna Grace, who audiences will recognize from I, Tonya, and Gifted. Demonologists The Warrens will procure Annabelle after rescuing the doll’s latest victims, and bring her back to their home. The couple has an entire room of haunted objects, but it looks like Annabelle will have a power the weren’t prepared for. Instead, they may have given her a group of demonic allies.

This new poster and Annabelle Comes Home‘s concept tease a very exciting threequel, forming a trilogy of horror movies in the process. The Warrens have been kept largely separate from the spinoffs, so it’s exciting to see the deeper connection to the original franchise. James Wan is onboard as a producer, and his involvement should give cynics reason to relax. Especially as he continues basking in the sun of Aquaman‘s success.

The Annabelle franchise has already had an interesting life in theaters. The original film was the very first spinoff to come from The Conjuring Universe, something which will become more popular in the coming years. Annabelle was poorly received by critics, but it still managed to be a box office success. Annabelle: Creation was significantly better in quality, and made even more money at the box office. As such, the pressure is on for Annabelle Comes Home to deliver when it arrives this summer.

All will be revealed when Annabelle Comes Home arrives in theaters on June 28th, 2019. In the meantime, check out our 2019 release list to plan your next trip to the movies.

5 Things I Like About Being An AMC Stubs A-List Member

After resisting the urge to sign up for AMC Theaters’ Stubs A-List program, I finally bit the bullet and converted my Premiere tier membership. I had my reservations, but eventually I put them aside with the intent that if I didn’t like the service’s offerings, I could always just cancel after a month–a pro to trying out something new. It’s a good thing I finally got over myself and jumped into the world of the A-List, as I really can’t see myself dropping the pass in the foreseeable future.

While I’ve tried and even studied up on the various competitors offering similar services in the past, I’ve enjoyed the Stubs A-List treatment the most. In particular, there are five particular aspects of the overall program that I really think make the moviegoing experience all the easier to enjoy. A word of warning though, these reasons may be seen as objective. So if you’re really curious about if AMC Stubs A-List is right for you, it’s recommended that you personally research the service through the official website. But for the moment, here are my five reasons why I like being on the A-List!

It Really Helps Me Budget My Movie Spending

The biggest criticism people have when going to the movies, besides the usual concerns with etiquette, is that it’s too expensive to experience often. No matter what market you’re in, the price of one movie ticket can be quite high, especially for first-run movies and on weekends. But with AMC Stubs A-List, all you need to do is pay one flat rate for three movies a week. And honestly, even if I wasn’t in the world of entertainment journalism, I’d sign up for this program because I’m a huge movie fan, and it’s a hell of a bargain. While it ensures I get to see the most prolific titles any given month, it also gives me a lot more options to choose from, which leads me to reason #2.

I’m Open To Seeing More Unusual Movies

Taking away the threshold of affordability, AMC Stubs A-List leaves me, and any other viewer, with one key question to answer: What do I see next? This past weekend, I knocked out Us and Captain Marvel in one fell swoop, and those are just two of the month’s biggest releases. If I were still worried about buying individual tickets, I might be more conservative and save my budgeted ticket costs for those films individually. With an A-List membership, I’m thinking about throwing in a showing of Gaspar Noe’s Climax, and thanks to AMC’s Independent initiative, it’s actually showing at a theater near me. Murderous LSD dance party, here I come.

Any Format Is Available For Enjoyment, No Strings Attached

I firmly believe that one of the biggest reasons to still go to the movies in our modern era is the fact there are just some formats that aren’t available at home. Sure, TVs are getting bigger, surround sound rigs are evolving, and 3D is still viable for certain movies, but those experiences may not be enough to invest most people. Which is why the fact that AMC Stubs A-List lets you pick any format available without an upcharge is another credit to its existence. Watching Us in Dolby Cinema and Captain Marvel in IMAX were experiences that really transformed how I saw each of those films, and I probably wouldn’t have bought into either if I didn’t have my A-List membership.

It Pays For Itself Really Quickly

One of my biggest hangups when it came to signing up for AMC Stubs A-List was that I’d be paying roughly $25, but might not be seeing as many movies as I’d like to make the cost of signing up worth the while. But looking into the ticket prices in my market, and comparing them to that figure quoted above, I found that the threshold wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. In truth, all I have to do is see two movies in one month, and I’m square with the house. Anything past that is, in concept, pure profit on my end. With the summer movie season not being too far off, that will probably make up for the months I’m not as huge on going to the movies. Again, I’m a pretty cinematically inclined person; so seeing two movies in one month isn’t hard. So the fact that it’s that easy to recoup my investment into AMC Theaters’ continued existence is enough for me to keep enrolled in this program for quite some time.

Planning Future Movie Trips Is Absurdly Easy

Perhaps the coolest feature of the AMC Stubs A-List program is the fact that as soon as tickets for a movie go on sale, you can use future reservations for said film. Avengers: Endgame just revealed its running time, and folks are thinking this could be an indication that tickets will finally go on sale for opening weekend. Now the theater I trust the most with quality 3D in my area happens to also be an AMC owned establishment. It is also notoriously small, and if I don’t reserve as soon as possible, I’ll end up frozen out on the early showings I’ll need to attend in order to get in before spoilers run rampant. So if Kevin Feige himself does a livestream event right this moment, or any other moment after reading this sentence, announcing that tickets to the MCU’s biggest event film were going on sale today, I’d be able to snag some prime seats, worry-free.

I’m sure there are other reasons to enjoy the AMC Stubs A-List other than those I’ve listed above. But those are the most important to my personal experience, and I think they’re pretty appealing to subscribers at large, especially if you are big movie fan. However, it should be restated that if you’re looking for some specific answers to questions and aspects not addressed here, you can go to the program’s official website in order to potentially find the answers that you seek.
