Today in Movie Culture: ‘The Curse of La Llorona’ Easter Eggs, ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Stars Name Their Favorite MCU Moments and More

Here are a bunch of little bites to satisfy your hunger for movie culture:

 

Easter Eggs of the Day:

The Curse of La Llorona was the top-grossing movie over the weekend in its theatrical debut, and now everyone knows about its association with a certain horror franchise. Right? Either way, here’s Zac Morris of CZsWorld detailing all the connections to other movies, as well a look at how La Llorona sets up a possible sequel:

 

Franchise Recap of the Day:

We’re in the end game now, as Avengers: Endgame makes its way into theaters this week! Just a few more days! While everyone is spending the final hours revisiting past installments of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, now’s the time to discuss our favorite moments from the franchise. For IMDb, here are some Endgame cast members, including Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth revealing their picks:

 

Movie Trailer Parody of the Day:

What are Deadpool, Shrek and Kick-Ass doing in the latest trailer for Avengers: Endgame? Oh, that’s not the actual trailer, it’s the latest Weird Trailer from Aldo Jones. As you get ready for the real and relatively serious next MCU installment, check out this warped and extremely silly parody, including a brief, surprisingly tasteful depiction of a certain fan theory involving Ant-Man and Thanos:

 

Song Parody of the Day:

Ant-Man probably isn’t the one who’ll take Thanos down in Avengers: Endgame, especially since there’s one Marvel character who really wants a second try at killing the villain. Aaron Fraser-Nash delivers another great musical parody as a preview plot song for Thor, who covers “Old Town Road” with new lyrics about how he’s going after Thanos again with his new weapon, Stormbreaker:

 

Fan Theory of the Day:

The question is, will Thor come out of Avengers: Endgame alive, even if he does defeat Thanos? We’re just days away from happening, so fans are cramming in some last minute theories about the movie and which characters will be gone when the credits begin at end of its three-hour runtime. For Film Theory, here’s MatPat with his confident educated guess on Endgame’s most probable deaths:

 

 

Cosplay of the Day:

Some fans may be rooting for the bad guys this weekend. But could Thanos win? Maybe if he resurrected some other MCU villains. Just imagine Thanos teaming up with Hela from Thor: Ragnarok. Whether or not their meeting could take place in Avengers: Endgame, these fabulous cosplayers satisfy any desire to see the two big bads together:

 

Movie Scene Recap of the Day:

In anticipation of Avengers: Endgame, fans are revisiting Avengers: Infinity War. In a video for a group series called One Marvelous Scene, ScreenPrism’s The Take doesn’t just look at the previous Avengers installment but specifically the moment in which Tony Stark, a.k.a. Iron Man, battles Thanos and how it’s a culmination of the MCU’s recurring theme involving daddy issues:

 

Video Essay of the Day:

Whether you go back to the previous Avengers movie or not, you should at least watch the latest video essay from Renegade Cut. This time, Leon Thomas explores the philosophical motivation for Thanos to wipe out half the population of the universe in Avengers: infinity War and why the villain is wrong in that reasoning:

 

Fan Art of the Day:

Thanos may have been wrong, but he sure looked stylish while decimating the universe in Avengers: Endgame. Who wouldn’t want their own bedazzled oversize glove with which to alter time, space and more? How about one made out of balloons? While some balloon artists offer swords or might even create a hammer with their inflatable materials, but one talented sculptor made an amazing Infinity Gauntlet:

 

 

Classic Movie Trailer of the Day:

Avengers: Endgame could be the movie that changes the MCU forever, breaking up the titular team as we know them whether or not any of the original members actually die. Seven years ago, the first Avengers movie also changed the MCU as it brought those original heroes together for the first time — and offered the first appearance of Thanos. Let’s look back at the initial trailer that sold us on the idea for The Avengers, which debuted in US theaters on May 4, 2012:
