Box office history was made when Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” shattered all opening records, surpassed the $2 billion mark at the global box office in just 48 days, and remains the fourth highest-grossing film of all time. Now, the cinematic event ten-years in the making comes home Digitally on July 31 and Blu-ray on Aug. 14 with over two hours of bonus.

“Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War” is a must-own addition to every in-home film collection and is packaged several ways so that fans get the most out of their viewing experience. Consumers who experience the ultimate showdown Digitally will join a 30-minute roundtable with Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) directors Anthony and Joe Russo, Jon Favreau, Joss Whedon, James Gunn, Ryan Coogler, Peyton Reed and Taika Waititi who reflect on how their movies contribute to the MCU’s larger storytelling adventure.

The 4K Cinematic Universe Edition’s never-before-seen bonus material grants behind-the-scenes access to MCU members and features the memorable moments when characters first meet, the rationale behind some unexpected on-screen pair-ups, and a funny Super Hero gag reel. Featurettes explore the frighteningly powerful Thanos and two action-packed attempts to prevent his collection of all six Infinity Stones: the struggle on Titan and the massive battle in Wakanda. Deleted scenes and filmmaker commentary reveal even more on-set secrets from Marvel Studios’ monumental undertaking.

The Multi-Screen Edition includes a Blu-ray and a Digital Copy of the film, giving viewers the flexibility to watch the film on different devices. Those with 4K Ultra HD capability may opt for a 4K Cinematic Universe Edition, which includes a 4K Ultra HD disc, a Blu-ray, and a Digital Copy.

And for those who wish to catch up on their MCU history, select retailers are also offering bundled packaging as well as individual Digital and Physical releases of “Marvel’s The Avengers” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

My Thoughts

In Avengers: Infinity Wars, the Avengers band together to defeat the evil Thanos. This is not your typical Marvel movie with a lot of action mixed with a little humor. It is emotionally draining and pretty hard core--maybe a little too hardcore for some very young fans. This battle is one that has some serious lows, and the cliffhanger ending will leave fans reeling.  It becomes clear that not all of our favorites may survive this epic battle.

This was a great addition to the Marvel family. There is a lot of action and all of your favorite super heroes make an appearance. One of my favorite parts about this movie is that the Avengers band together with the cast from Guardians of the Galaxy. No spoilers here, but be prepared for a cliff hanger ending that may leave you shocked and emotionally drained. In addition to the main feature, this Blu-ray set includes lots of great bonus footage including deleted scenes and gag reels. This is another great addition to the Avengers series. It may possibly be the best one yet.  My kids can't wait to see what they come up with in Part 2.
