POTPORRI: 'AVENGERS' & 'PROMETHEUS' MAKE COLLIDER'S WEEKLY "TOP 5" - NEW IMAGES & MEET EVIL "PETER"
Here is a little round up of a bit of "this and that" for 'Avengers' and 'Promethus' fans.
First off, Collider listed their 'Top 5' newsmakers of the week with Chris Hemsworth's 'The Avengers' and Charlize Theron's 'Prometheus' making the cut. Also featured was Universal's 'The Lorax' which is getting huge buzz for this weekend's release.
'The Avengers' broke the iTunes record for the most viewed trailer on their site which was "viewed over 13.7 million times in the first 24 hours of its debut."
'The Avengers' is looking to be one of the biggest blockbusters of this summer. Below are screen captured images from the recently released trailer done by Collider. See all 40 of their hi-res images here.
Charlize Theron's 'Prometheus' also makes their list solely based upon actor Guy Pearce who will play the "villian corporate boss/CEO". According to Collider, 'Prometheus' released a "viral video" of Pearce's character, 'Peter Weyland'. It is extrodinary and Pearce is good in it. This video alone, sells the film.
Not to mention, with 'Prometheus' being released one week after SWATH, it will definitely be giving it a run for its money.
The video also gives another clue that this film could be or is an "Alien' prequel when Wheyland mentions the creation of "cybornetic individuals". This is a huge connection to 'Alien' because that is what Ian Holm's "Ash" was that film. Read more about the 'Alien' prequel controversy here.

Lastly, Universal's 'The Lorax' also makes their list. The Hollywood Reporter has indicated that 'The Lorax' is projected to make at least $60 million dollars for its opening weekend. This would be the best opening for an animated film since 'Cars 2' opened last June to the tune of $66 million.
