Avengers Opens in the USAvengers-Age-of-Ultron

Age of Ultron was finally released in North America this week, opening to a $191.3 million weekend. This is lower than the predicted $200+ million, but still captures the title of being the 2nd highest opening weekend in the US.
Still related, you must watch this video of Jeremy Renner justifying his role amongst the super-powered Avengers to the tune of Ed Sheeran’s Thinking Out Loud on Jimmy Fallon.

Photos emerged this week from the filming of the TMNT sequel with Megan Fox channeling her inner Brittany and the first look at Stephen Amell masked up and armed with the traditional hockey gear (a little disappointed that the long hair isn’t there though). We also have a new Shredder, with Brian Tee being cast.
