New releases this week are pretty slim, but how could it be any different when you have the Marvel behemoth "Avengers: Endgame" exploding into theaters. The 22nd installment in the MCU, and a bookend to a generation of Marvel superheroes that originated 11 years ago, "Endgame" continues from where "Infinity War" left off and it looks like both critics and moviegoers got what they wanted out of it. A powerful, emotional and thrilling blockbuster that is poised for box-office records.

"Avengers: Endgame" is looking at a Friday debut of over $140 million, as the film has already grossed $60 million from Thursday night previews. The studio is expecting a $300 million three-day opening. Last year, "Infinity War" opened with $106.3 million in its first day, finished its first weekend with $257.6 million, and went on to gross $678.8 million in its entire domestic run. Not to mention a whopping $2 billion worldwide total.

New limited releases this week include the modern Western "Little Woods" starring Lily James and Tessa Thompson, and the documentary "Carmine Street Guitars".

days-gone-new-game-playstation-4

Video Game Description: Set in the beautiful, volcanic scarred high-desert of the Pacific Northwest, Days Gone is an open-world action-adventure game in which you assume the role of Deacon St. John, a Drifter and bounty hunter who would rather risk the dangers of the broken road than live in one of the “safe” wilderness encampments. The game takes place two years following a global pandemic which has wiped out just about everyone, but transformed millions of others into what survivors call Freakers – mindless, feral creatures, more animal than human but very much alive and rapidly evolving. Made up of hundreds of individual Freakers, Hordes eat, move and attack together, seemingly as one. Some Hordes roam the highways at night, while others, like the one in the demo, have found a food source that keeps it in a single location. Skills learned in his prior life as an outlaw biker have given Deacon a slight edge in the seemingly never-ending fight to stay alive. But will it be enough?
