Thanos is here.
Those of you who are fans of the Avengers movies know exactly what that means. For those unfamiliar, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War is now available digitally, but releases via Blu-Ray on Tuesday, August 14th.
Avengers: Infinity War made quite an impression at the box office finishing as the number 4 film of all time. It shattered all opening records and raced past the $2 billion (yes billion) global mark within 48 days. This is the movie that has been teased for a decade in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it is finally available to own.
Through 17 movies we have been warned of the presence of the Mad Titan, Thanos. In the 18th movie, members from every Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise join together to try and prevent Thanos from completing his quest to become the most powerful member of the universe.
Part of what makes this movie compelling is that it gives us the opportunity to see heroes meet up for the first time. Some of the pairings go well while others cause some unexpected conflicts. Despite clashes in personalities, the heroes are united in their quest to defeat Thanos.
As compelling as the movie is, the Bonus Features (which may vary by retailer) make the Blu-Ray a fun addition to your home movie collection. Deleted and Extended Scenes include Tony and Pepper arguing over wedding details, Wanda and Vision attempting to hide from Thanos’ allies, the Guardians quarreling over a failed mission, and a confrontation between Thanos and Gamora.
In addition to movie extras, you are also treated to audio commentary from the directors, a gag reel, and some other behind the scenes looks to show how the cinematic magic is made. A digital exclusive is a 32-minute Directors’ Roundtable which includes all 8 directors of the entire MCU as they reflect on how they have collaborated and contributed to an overarching tale of adventure.
Whether you enjoyed it in the theater or are interested in seeing it for the first time, Avengers: Infinity War is available now digitally and on Blu-Ray on August 14th. The wait is over. Thanos is here.
Avengers: Infinity War is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of Sci-Fi violence and action, language, and some crude references.
Disclosure: I received a copy of Avengers: Infinity War for the purpose of a review. My thoughts and words are my own.
