Deleted Scene From Tomorrowland Could Have Been A Far Superior Alternate Opening To That Film

Land Of The Nerds Is One Year Old!
the very first article got published on this website, but that was an introduction piece. The first traditional piece of writing, covering Adam Sandlers dwindling box office returns, got published a year ago today. Ah, those were the days. As you likely noticed if you read that introduction piece, most of those regular columns have been discontinued. Why is that? Well, I always wanted this site to be like some of the film websites I've loved all my life, which put quality content over all else. I didn't want to churn out substandard writing if I didn't have something to talk about solely because I needed to talk about movie trailers on Thursday.

Why I Hate The Minions
I'm sure just one glimpse at that headline is enough to make many of you conclude that I have no soul, hate joy in any form and am a remorseless monster. But my reasoning behind my hatred for these yellow creations is more complex than all that. No, it derives from how these things are such blatant ploys for marketing without contributing to the stories they feature in a notable manner. Now, I'm not naive; looking at fellow modern day animated comic sidekicks like Baymax, Toothless and Olaf, those characters are obviously adorable, in part, so they can look good on a toy shelf.

The Avengers: Age of Ultrons Record Breaking Thursday Night Numbers Point To A Huge Weekend
I predicted The Avengers: Age of Ultron would take in a whopping $22 million from Thursday night screenings, which proved to be off by about 25%. It turns out that the newest Avengers adventure wound up making $27.6 million last night, 48% up from the first Avengers movie and by far the biggest Thursday night numbers for any MCU movie. To boot, it's the sixth biggest Thursday night grosser of all-time, behind the final Harry Potter movie, The Dark Knight Rises and the last three Twilight films.
