[ HUNTINGTON, WV (HNN) – Before introducing this week’s new movies, a word for hasty exiting patrons from Marvel’s “Captain America.” You missed something. You missed something awesome. And you will wait until next summer to see the entire flick. Stay in your seat and catch a teaser trailer featuring an assembly of Marvel Universe characters for 2012’s, “The Avengers.”

Captain America, Thor, and Spiderman are members. Nick Fury (Agent of SHIELD) is too. You will see a glimpse of Hawkeye and Black Widow.

Although this will not let you see what’s on the end of “Captain,” you can click on the reelzchannel site and watch an “Avengers” preview and interview. http://www.reelzchannel.com/movie/262408/the-avengers/ 

Stay tuned for a review of a flick that’s best labeled a romantic sexual comedy, “Friends with Benefits.” It opened last week. Don’t strike it from you list since the genre has been hapless and clichéd lately. Not saying this torpedoes the trend, but it’s has a laugh along premise of boy meets girl but both are either emotionally unavailable or emotionally distressed, so , what happens? They become good friends and decide a little ‘casual sex’ won’t ruin the friendship.

THIS WEEKEND we’ll see if the ever growing older Harrison Ford still has what it takes for leading man. “Crazy Stupid Love” will be another effort to reverse the fortunes of romantic comedy. And, “Smurfs 3D,” will give mom or dad a flick to which to send the youngsters in the family.
