Italy Opens Theme Park In Tribute To Film Industry - Yahoo News

Breaking News - Disney XD Orders Second Season of Hit Animated Series "Marvel's Avengers Assemble" and "Marvel's Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H." | TheFutonCritic.com

"After they opened the Disney theme park outside Paris, the average stay went up." And Cinecitta World does stand out among theme parks in several ways. For one thing, the food is better. No greasy funnel cakes or corn dogs to be found: Visitors instead can sit down to a civilized meal at an Italian wood-fired pizzeria at the Gatsby-esque Charleston Club; a healthful buffet (with a glass of wine, for grown-ups) at the Old American Bistro, or a rollicking barbecue at the saloon. But beyond the food, there's plenty of kitsch at Cinecitta World. With its jumble of loose references to bygone films that many children (and even some adults) won't be familiar with from the 1914 silent film "Cabiria" to American classics like "High Noon" and "Indiana Jones" it seems oddly and refreshingly disconnected visit from the current moment. "While other places say what you have to dream, we don't. We are free," said Gout. Italians seem to agree. "It takes us back in time," said Mirella Monti, a visitor at a preview before the park's official July 24 opening.

"Marvel's Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H." season two continues to pack a punch with thrilling, super-sized missions led by larger-than-life Hulk and his incredible team, including She-Hulk, Red Hulk, A-Bomb and Skaar. The second season finds the Hulks smashing into one of the biggest, most epic stories ever as "Planet Hulk" changes everything for the Agents and sets the course for a looming cosmic catastrophe.
