Captain America: The First Avenger will open at Comic-Con one day early on Thursday, July 21 Before it opens anywhere else in the world, Captain America: The First Avenger will open first in Comic-Con. Convention goers in San Diego will be the first audience to see one of the summer's hottest super heroes beginning at noon PST on Thursday, July 21st, 1-day ahead of its US opening.

In addition to being among the first to see the movie, all Captain America: The First Avenger ticketholders will receive RealD 3D Collector's Custom red, white and blue Captain America: The First Avenger glasses and a limited edition poster designed exclusively for the fans. A grand prize package of Captain America: The First Avenger merchandise and other Marvel items will be given away to a select audience member at each screening. USO-costumed women will be standing at the American Flag Pole in the Horton Plaza passing out free tickets every hour beginning at 11:00 A.M. to the first 10 people who come dressed as Captain America.
Every Tuesday, Sony drops a bunch of new stuff onto the PlayStation Network. Those with a PlayStation 3 or PSP can download this new goodness, which ranges from PSN games to movies, themes and more. While the Official PlayStation Blog outlines these updates in full each week, we thought we'd help truncate the good news into something more digestible.
Today's PlayStation Store update is a big one. Let's get the most important (and ridiculously exciting) news out of the way first -- Castle Crashers has finally arrived. It only took two years to meander its way over to the PlayStation Network, but the wait is over. Castle Crashers is hands-down one of the best downloadable games on any service this generation, and PSN users can finally revel in its glory for $14.99. A second new game also hits the Store today as well. Sam & Max Episode 5: The City That Dares Not Sleep can be purchased, and is free to those gamers who already acquired a full season pass for Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse. 2b1af7f3a8
