It seems as though the movie franchise approach is as healthy as ever. When they sell tickets at the door and full seats in the cinema, the old saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” comes into play.

Marvel Studios presents “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time.

As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.

The loss of Robin Williams in August, 2014 meant the world became a little less funny. He mesmerized an audience with his fast paced comedy and when needed, could turn on the drama at will. An icon in his own right, his death was unnecessary, as with so many others who perished in the same manner.

It is this tale of a tragic comic that sadly remains etched in our memories, which seems very unfitting for the man that was Robin Williams.

Born in Chicago in 1951, Williams took the entertainment industry on a whirlwind adventure that included movies such as ‘Good Will Hunting’, ‘Hook’, ‘Aladdin’, ‘The Fisher King’ and ‘Good Morning Vietnam’ - to name but a few.

"BIG HERO 6" BAYMAX cares. That's what he was designed to do. The plus-sized inflatable robot's job title is technically Healthcare Companion: With a simple scan, Baymax can detect vital stats, and, given a patient's level of pain, can treat nearly any ailment. Conceived and built by Tadashi Hamada, Baymax just might revolutionize the healthcare industry. But to the inventor's kid brother Hiro, the nurturing, guileless bot turns out to be more than what he was built for—he's a hero, and quite possibly Hiro's closest friend. And after some deft reprogramming that includes a rocket fist, super strength and rocket thrusters that allow him to fly, Baymax becomes one of the "Big Hero 6."

“Big Hero 6” showcases the bond between a boy and his robot in action-packed big-screen adventure.
