Thor: The Dark World gets a second trailer.
I'm trying not to say too much about this film's story premise. I certainly wouldn't share the plot blurb from the back of the original novel.
I'm not sure I was left entirely satisfied with the treatment of the female characters in 2011's Thor.
It wasn't just incidental that Thor didn't call Jane Foster during The Avengers. It wasn't just the outcome of him being somewhat busy with an alien invasion. It was a key plot seed for his own new movie.
I think Chris O'Dowd is tremendously charismatic.
This project keeps reanimating.
The Wachowskis seem to be entering a rather productive period with the sprawling and ambitious Cloud Atlas just wrapped, a script for a gay romance set amidst the Iraq war completed and, some sort of experimental far-future thing called Cobalt Neutral 9 at proof of concept stage and now, sci-fi action film Jupiter Ascending gearing […]
Flying in the face of previous spin that her split with the studio was amicable, it’s now being said that director Patty Jenkins was fired without warning from Thor 2. Makes me really regret my previous headline: Thor 2 Needs A New Director As Patty Jenkins Decides To Leave Would apparently have been more accurate […]
I think the simple version goes like this: The big movie bus pulls up outside Natalie Portman’s house and she gets on. Her intent is to produce and possibly star in an adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The bus trundles over to David O’Russell’s house and he gets on to write […]
After the death of Elizabeth Taylor in March this year, it was only a matter of time before Hollywood turned its attention to one of the greatest love stories of the 20th century and one of its own. The love affair of twice-married Liz Taylor and Richard Burton was iconic but, ever the movie star, Taylor […]
If you’re anxious about reading a review and learning too much about this film but still want to know whether the cinema ticket’s worth your hard-earned money here’s a summary: Thor is a brilliant, epic, and often very funny superhero movie that is very much worth your while. It’s so huge in scope that the […]
Ed Whitfield writes for Bleeding Cool: David Gordon Green, the director of Pineapple Express, has reunited that film’s James Franco and Danny McBride for this fantasy take on their stoner shtick. Set in the kind of magic kingdom where Uncle Walt would touch children rather than entertain them, it’s an unashamedly puerile take on the Arthurian […]
We’ll get to see Natalie Portman, Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins in Thor in 36 days, according to the counter on Marvel.com. In the meantime, check out this scene from early in the flick:
British posters for Kenneth Branagh’s Thor? That’s outrageous. He’s Norse. Norse, I tell you. Whatever next – Black folks in Asgard? Oh, good. Panic over. See Thor in the second poster there? Seems that he’s having his own version of the Nuremberg rally. All is well in the world again. Thanks, Empire. (Pun intended)
He’s big, he’s tough, he’s a god… and he’s a fluent French speaker. It makes no less sense than him speaking English, of course. Apart from the fact that he’s in America. And the words don’t match his lip movements. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vMw5r5w8xuU[/youtube] Thanks to CineComics for the tip-off.
I almost wanted the headline to this story to be: Ano-Thor Thor Trail-Thor For Thor-sday Night But then I got over myself. This latest trailer for Thor starts on the “cute earthlings find beefy alien” angle, then quickly moves into “cute earthlings find beefy alien charming”, and then into “the alien seems to come from […]
I don’t know long it would take for copies of Entertainment Weekly to end up on the shelves of a British Borders but it was a long time, and anyway, there’s no Borders here anymore anyhow and I’ve never seen another chain take it. I’m depending on Americans to read the magazine for me, and […]
Yesterday, the poster; today, the trailer. The Other Woman hits IFC VOD on Friday then will play in US cinemas (What? Five cinemas? Ten?) in February. So, there we go – we learn that Natalie Portman is engaged and pregnant and then we get a trailer for a film in which she loses a child […]
Next year will be the year of Natalie Portman – a husband, a baby, most likely an Oscar, Thor, No Strings Attached, Your Highness, Hesher and The Other Woman, formerly Love and Other Impossible Pursuits*. Here’s the newly unveiled poster for that last one, as premiered at Vulture. *Okay, the film will be first available […]
I didn’t like the first trailer for Your Highness. I don’t like the second one either. You might love it, however, so here it is. I can’t imagine the high-quality version at Apple will be any more convincing.
