GeekScholars Movie NewsThis week on GeekScholars Movie News, presented by Eclipse Magazine, we dive into a whole slew of preview reviews as we look at a trio of films gearing up for release later this year: The Campaign, a political comedy starring Will Ferrell and Zach Galifinikas, Argo, a historical thriller about the Iran hostage crisis of 1979, and Gangster Squad, a cop/mob actioneer set in 1960s Los Angeles starring Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, and Sean Penn.

From there, even though the GeekScholars wanted to go see The Avengers for a 2nd, and in some cases, 3rd time, GeekScholars Jill and Fox headed to the theaters to give the gothic soap opera adaptation, Dark Shadows, a quick peek, so listen in to hear what they had to say about it. After that we have some quickies including news about James Cameron,PrometheusRed 2, and Kick-Ass 2.
