Scene stealers Samuel L. Jackson's surprise appearance in 2008's Iron Man , after the end credits had finished rolling, was meant to be a fun surprise for comic geeks. Little did Marvel Studios know that it would mark the beginning of a trend that's now all over Hollywood. Marvel, in particular, has got so good with these teasers — often featuring a comic character's big-screen debut while setting up the studio's next film — that they almost overshadow the main film. And Guardians of the Galaxy ( see our feature ), being the final lead-up film to next May's Avengers: Age of Ultron , is the perfect example. Fans are expecting its post-credit scene to offer juicy teasers for what will likely be 2015's biggest film, and the buzz has been so intense that Marvel apparently decided that it couldn't trust Asian journalists to keep a secret. I attended the film's press screening last week and, like many scribes in attendance, was disappointed to see a blank screen at the end of the credits. I spoke to the film's local distributor and was told that Marvel pulled the scene from all preview copies of the film going to Asia. The scene will be reinserted into the theatrical version for general release. This is the first time a post-credit scene has been deliberately cut from press screenings. Platters that matter Audiophiles should check out the first annual Hong Kong Vinyl Record Fair at the super indie CIA gallery in Kwai Hing this Saturday and Sunday. It's an open market for vinyl lovers to buy, sell, trade — or just discuss their favourite records and complain about digital music. Many of Hong Kong's best-known record collectors, from Lona Records' Alok Leung to artist promoter Terry Wong, will be in attendance. And, of course, Paul "Vinyl Hero" Au, the man with probably the largest record collection in the city, will be there spinning some of his favourite discs. Fair organisers tell 48 Hours that some rare records never before seen in Hong Kong will be up for grabs, including Australian experimental outfit SPK's first two seven-inch singles in handmade sleeves, and one-off cassettes produced by cult Japanese group Gerogerigegege. A quiet riot Last week we wrote about how both UK space rockers Spiritualized and model/singer Sky Ferreira are both set to perform in August after very low-key promotional campaigns that have alerted about 10 people to the shows. Now we've learned that Californian dance-punk band !!! (it's pronounced chk chk chk) will play Kitec in Kowloon Bay on August 21 and, once again, there's been virtually zero promotion of the gig. The band have a reputation for riotous live shows and tickets can be purchased until August 7 from Kubric Book Club in Yau Ma Tei, Rock Gallery in Wan Chai and White Noise Records in Prince Edward for HK$370, or from eventbrite.hk for HK$420.
