Students should go see Avengers: Endgame
Avengers: Endgame is currently the highest grossing film of all time and the conclusion to Marvel’s 23 films.
The series, known as the Infinity Saga, began with Iron Man in 2008. Avengers: Endgame was a spectacle and the perfect conclusion film to end this chapter of Marvel’s superhero stories.
This final film will be showing in Lib Jackson Student Union’s movie theater from Sept. 13 to the 14, with both night shows starting at 9 p.m. In celebration of Marvel’s final film of the Infinity Saga, a series of 23 films including previous Avengers movies such as Avengers: Infinity War will also be playing in the Student Union on Sept. 13 and 14 starting at 5:30 p.m., followed by Avengers: Endgame.
Avengers: Endgame is the eagerly anticipated follow up to Avengers: Infinity War in which the heroes lost to Thanos when he decimated half of the universe in his quest to make a better world for those who remained.
The film is mainly set five years after the events of Infinity War and the remaining heroes are tasked with reversing Thanos’ actions and bring back those who were lost. With half of the population on Earth gone, there is depicted a grizzly post-apocalyptic planet with cars abandoned on streets, boats aimlessly floating in New York’s inner harbor and buildings crumbling on every corner.
It is no easy feat for the remaining Avengers to fix the destruction in Thanos’ path, but after five years apart, the Avengers assemble once again for round two with Thanos. With Endgame as the concluding film to this chapter of Marvel, it was sprinkled with plenty of fan favorite moments and references to Marvel movies of the past.
For those who are not familiar with Marvel movies, Endgame is still excellent as a standalone film. The best of CGI technology is showcased and the visual effects are stunning from beginning to end.
Endgame did a superb job of capturing viewers’ imaginations, both of fans and first time viewers. If you have yet to watch it, grab a friend and head to the Student Union movie theater on either Sept.13 or 14 for only two dollars. Free popcorn is included! Be sure to bring your CINO ID, Alumni Association card or HGTC ID for admission.
