The Avengers in Perth

No, Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth and co. aren’t coming to Western Australia, but The Avengers comics have been putting the spotlight on Perth for some time now. The always entertaining Fruitless Pursuits has a look at their visits here, and while we’re on the topic this weekend, Perth plays host to the annual Supanova Pop Culture Convention, with writers, actors and artists, including George Perez and Chris Claremont.

Escape Plan Trailer

I’m sure I remember reading about this film, originally called, The Tomb, years ago. Now it’s almost here. Escape Plan stars Stallone and Schwarzenegger stuck together in a hi-tech prison. It opens in October and looks like a great action film from two of The Expendables films.
