My wishes for the World...or how I realized Peace on Earth was Bullshit.

Throwing wishes into the air for humanity to catch -
1) I don't want to 'observe' people. I want to connect with people.
2) Be present. Look me in the eye and tell me you love me or that I am full of shit.
3) Let go and say fuck it!
4 and last, show your passion! Love, create, laugh, fight, fuck...I don't care what you do, just care so much it makes your heart bleed!
 
So end-ith the lesson...

THE WINNER AND STILL CHAMPION - MARVEL!!!! "Guardians of the Galaxy #1 with 94 Million!

'Guardians Of The Galaxy' Decimates Box Office Expectations With $94 Million

Huffington Post

LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Guardians of the Galaxy" blasted past expectations at the weekend box office.

Marvel Studios' cosmic romp starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista as members of an intergalactic band of rebels earned $94 million in its debut weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday. Ahead of its Friday debut, box office analysts initially projected that the comic book adaptation would earn between $60 million and $75 million in North America.

The out-of-this-world launch gives "Guardians" the biggest opening for a film released in the traditionally low-key month of August, a record previously held by the $69.2 million debut of 2007's "The Bourne Ultimatum." It also makes "Guardians" the third largest opening of 2014, coming behind the $95 million inauguration of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" in April and the $100 million launch of "Transformers: Age of Extinction" in June.

"Guardians," which also features Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel voicing the computer-generated characters Rocket Raccoon and Groot, was originally considered a risky proposition for Marvel and "Guardians" distributor Walt Disney Co. because it features more obscure characters from the Marvel universe and is set almost entirely in outer space.

Despite any apprehension, Marvel was betting on "Guardians," written and directed by "Slither" filmmaker James Gunn, to be a blockbuster. The studio announced at Comic-Con in San Diego last month that a sequel is already set for release in 2017. Marvel's next films are the follow-up "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" and "Ant-Man" starring Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas. Both movies are coming in 2015.

 
Marvel comic book adaptations have dominated 2014 with Sony Pictures' "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," 20th Century Fox's "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and Marvel Studios' "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" each arriving in first place at the box office on their respective opening weekends.
Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Rentrak, believes Marvel is unstoppable at this point.
"This is a brand that transcends any character within their universe," he said. "The mere mention of the name Marvel is enough to get people into the movie theater. That's somewhat rare. Pixar obviously has a similar cachet, but for Marvel to have four films this year open with over $90 million is amazing. It's unprecedented success."

Disney noted that "Guardians" hauled in an additional $66.4 million from 42 international territories, including Russia, Mexico, Brazil, South Korea and the United Kingdom, making it the first-place film overseas. "Guardians" is scheduled to land in such markets as Australia, India and Columbia next weekend.

In a distant second place at the North American box office, "Lucy," starring Scarlett Johansson as a woman with mind-bending powers, nabbed $18.3 million in its second weekend, bringing the Universal Pictures release's domestic total to $80 million.

Meanwhile, Universal's James Brown biopic "Get on Up" featuring Chadwick Boseman as the soulful singer opened in third place with $14 million.

First Footage Of 'Batman V Superman' And Wonder Woman Costume Unveiled At Comic Con


Forbes
 
The wait is over, as fans were treated to a surprise courtesy of Warner Bros. today during the Hall H panel at San Diego Comic Con. While no official Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice panel was officially scheduled, we all knew it was coming, so the only question was how much we’d see.

Warner did what I and many others had anticipated, as director Zack Snyder took the stage and showed a brief teaser of footage, sending fans into crazed rapture. Then, Snyder brought out Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, and Gal Gadot on stage for the event. The big overhead screens revealed the stars in their film guise as, respectively, Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman.

We’ve already seen the costumes for the Man of Steel and Dark Knight, but this was our first glimpse of the Amazon Princess. Judging from fan reaction, Warner got it very right. So, before we discuss it further, take a look at the first live-action big-screen Wonder Woman!
Wonder Woman Gal Gadot 1
Okay, you want to know about the footage, but first a minor “spoiler alert” for anyone for whom the title wasn’t a tip-off — I’m going to describe the very brief footage, so skip the next paragraph if you wish to avoid glaringly obvious information.

So, the teaser footage shows Batman in a suit of heavy bat-armor, standing on a roof in the pouring rain at night. His eyes glow solid white (take a moment to gasp and cheer at that, fans), and he pulls a tarp off the bat-signal on the roof and turns it on. Then, as the camera turns toward the sky, Superman is revealed floating in the air in the light of the bat-signal. He is furious, and his eyes begin glowing as his heat vision charges up to full power. Aaaaaand… cue the film logo, and loud sustained audience cheers! A major superhero throw-down was about to take place, obviously, earning the film its confrontational title.
Hopefully this footage will be officially released online soon, and if so I’ll have it for you asap, dear readers! Meanwhile, check out that great Wonder Woman costume design, eh? Another home run for this film, after an incredible Batman costume which we’ve already seen (but you can see it again below) and a tweaked Superman costume that is even better than it looked in last year’s Man of Steel. Wonder Woman looks like a warrior, and the inclusion of a sword is particularly pleasing. There’s a lasso hanging by her right side, as you can see, and her tiara has been adapted to be more warrior-like as well.

Take another look at Ben Affleck’s Batman…

And here is the new Superman costume design…

Fans will no doubt highly approve of the Wonder Woman uniform, as they have the other costumes thus far. It remains to be seen how — and how long — Wonder Woman fits into this first team-up story, but she’ll no doubt have a much larger role in the Justice League film that comes after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Some other major news hit the Web yesterday, by the way, as we found out Chris Terrio — the screenwriter who won the Oscar for Argo and who wrote Batman v Superman — is in negotiations with Warner Bros. to pen Justice League. That would be a huge win, so stay tuned for more word on how that pans out.

What do you think of the first cinematic Wonder Woman, dear readers? And how does that first teaser footage sound to you? Sound off in the comments below!
