According to Heat Vision, “The Avengers” will have a 3D theatrical run. So expect at least a few shots of Cap’s Sheild, Thor’s Hammer, and Tony’s scotch coming at you. Actually, director Joss Whedon tells JoBlo that the 3D aspect will not be obnoxious. “There’s no,’Oh look, we’re going to spend 20 minutes going through this tunnel because it’s in 3D!’ And no one is pointing at the screen the entire time,” says Whedon. “But it’s an action movie, things tend to hurtle toward the screen anyway.” Hmm, where’s Fozzy Bear and his cheap 3D yo-yo? We might have some work for him.
Directed by Joss Whedon & starring everybody, release date: May 4th, 2012

Cue up “The Night They Saved Christmas” and get me some egg nog — it’s a rare holiday weekend! With baking tonight, Christmas Eve tomorrow, and Christmas on Sunday, I’ll be looking forward to Monday as a time of total rest. Also, since I’m overcome with the Holiday spirit, I’d just like to thank all you Reelers — particularly the loyal Facebook users who always hit the “like” button and tipsters like Holden — for giving me a few minutes every morning. Like a Vulcan might say, may your weekends be free of incident. As always, if any of you in the great, wide Internet discover something awesome, disheartening, or just plain weird, let us know! Take credit, come up with a clever nickname, or go anonymous. The choice is yours. Fresh rumors and movie news every weekday morning. I am Erik Amaya, bracing for the future threat of the gift exchange lines.
