No Post Today – Well Kinda Sorta – Avengers Assemble!

No post today (other than this) as I am taking a nifty mental health day to see The Avengers double feature and enjoy a nice juicy hamburger. Ooooh and a ridiculously large Coke Icee! I love summer movie season.

Avengers Double Feature

 

Woohoo! This double feature is playing at select Regal, Edwards, Carolina, AMC, Epic, Cinemark, and other theaters.

The Resurgence of the Divergent Insurgent

Insurgent starts in theaters on March 19th.

Insurgent

 

Insurgent (2015) – Rated PG-13

Beatrice Prior must confront her inner demons and continue her fight against a powerful alliance which threatens to tear her society apart with the help from others on her side.

Divergent Double Feature

Insurgent is obviously the sequel to last year’s Divergent. I had meant to catch that last year but somehow missed it. Lucky for me, Divergent and Insurgent are the first double feature of what I hope will be many this year (Jurassic Park, Avengers, Mad Max, Terminator, etc.). Dare I hope for a return of the original Star Wars trilogy to theaters?

Locally, Regal Biltmore Grande is offering the double feature. The double feature is Thursday, March 19th starting at 5:30 for us (your time may be slightly different). Regal Crown Club members also get a $5 medium popcorn and soda combo with ticket purchase.

Many other chains are also offering this double feature. AMC, Arclight, Drafthouse, Celebration, and Cinemark are among those featuring Divergent and Insurgent. Check your local theater for special offers.

Speaking of special offers, Vudu has a FREE ticket offer for Insurgent through 3/16. You have to purchase Step Up All In, Step Up Revolution, Now You See Me, Warm Bodies, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Impossible, Abduction, What to Expect, or The Hunger Games bundle. Prices start at $7.99.

Wal-Mart has a bunch of DVDs with FREE movie tickets to Insurgent as well. Finally, Target has tickets on some of their book copies of Insurgent but word is that those stickers are difficult to get off the books legibly.

 

Return of the Double Feature – Jump Street and Dragon

I love double features and marathons. Sadly I won’t be able to see either of these.

Jump Street

 

* Regal, Cinemark, AMC, Metro, and Arclight Cinemas are offering 21 and 22 Jump Street as a double feature on 6/12/14. Regal’s price is a very reasonable $15 and starts at 5 p.m. Participating Regal theaters can be found here. Regal Crown Club members receive a coupon for a $5 medium combo (which can be upgraded).

Double Dragon

* AMC also has a How to Train Your dragon double feature the same day. The original is shown at 6 p.m. with the sequel following at 8.
