The Threat of Human Annihilation in MARVEL'S AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON


In Marvel's “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the Super Hero dream team must reassemble in order to stop the terrifying technological villain Ultron who's hell-bent on human extinction.

The decision to give Ultron his day in the sun as the villain of the film was always Joss Whedon’s first choice despite the end sequence in Marvel’s “The Avengers,” which featured the character of Thanos. The writer/director explains, “For me Thanos was always meant to be in the 3rd Avengers movie because he really is a god,” explains Whedon. “He is like a supreme being of evil and for me it was the cosmic cube because I’m really old; for some people it was the infinity gauntlet, but the great crossovers were usually Thanos-based and he made everybody’s lives miserable. And so the idea that he was the prime mover behind all of this just seemed natural.”

Let's Bond in the Awesome Land of LEGOLAND!

HELLO WORLD (Malaysia):

Before I became an action figure fan and collector, there is one toy that captured my heart and imagination.  It's LEGO!

Well, I would have not known LEGO if my father didn't give it to me as a gift when I was still a kid (around 4 years old I think).  I got the police station LEGO.  As I formed a lot of structures and characters, I was able to create a lot of stories too.  

That is why LEGO has a special spot in me.  Even if I moved to action figures and robots, LEGO will always be there.  

So when I learned about LEGOLAND opening in Malaysia, I promised myself to go there.  Aside from my love for LEGO, I'm also a theme park junkie!  So after Hong Kong Ocean Park, Hong Kong Disney Land, Universal Studios Singapore, Enchanted Kingdom, Manila Ocean Park and Ocean Adventure, here I am, finally, in Lego Land Malaysia!

But if we finally learn the story behind the sound, we fall in the music even more.  This is what the HUSH PROJECT is bringing to us.

After 15 years – and as the new theatrical film, “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water” starts screening in the Philippines on April 4 – the cast and creative team of SpongeBob Squarepants have had time to ponder the SpongeBob franchise's legacy.
