Avengers: Age Of Ultron Trailer


They've fought private military corporations, Nazi splinter-groups and a Norse god. Now, The Avengers assemble once again to celebrate their success. But when a new project from Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) reveals itself to be sentient and ready to bring the world to its knees, The Avengers are ready to fight amongst themselves while the threat of Ultron (James Spader) grows his strength, and gains allegiance from Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). Meanwhile, Stark is seeing hostility from Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and The Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) while Captain America (Chris Evans) desperately tries to bring the team back together to stop the Age of Ultron.

When an unnamed hacker begins to steal money from wherever he wants, he turns his attention on acts of terror. After the destruction of a Chinese power plant, a collaboration of American and Chinese agencies begin trying to find just who this person is. They finally hit on the idea of bringing convicted hacker Nicholas Hathaway (Chris Hemsworth) out of his 15-year-jail time, in order to help them track down the illusive boogieman. But as he is always one step ahead of them, it seems that even Hathaway's help will not result in them catching their crook.

A lot has happened since the Battle of New York. The world was attacked by Norse God, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), causing a united force of tech super-hero Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), reanimated World War Two super soldier Captain America (Chris Evans) and Loki's brother - the Norse God of thunder, Thor (Chris Hemsworth). Two years on, the Avengers have worked to defeat evil in Godly realm of Asgard, on planet Earth, and within S.H.I.E.L.D., the organisation that brought them together in the first place. Now, with Iron Man in retirement and S.H.I.E.L.D. in disarray, the world is suddenly threatened by Ultron (James Spader), a robot who seeks to destroy the Avengers now that he has been unshackled.

Ron Howard's 'In The Heart Of The Sea' Could Be Chris Hemsworth's Best Movie Yet


Chris Hemsworth Ron Howard

Fast-forward to March 2015 and you'll be sick to the back teeth of movies. All movies. You'll have been reading about how Jennifer Lawrence fell over at the Oscars again. How Boyhood won everything and why that director got snubbed, or why that Patrick Harris fella should stick to the Emmys.

Chris HemsworthChris Hemsworth reteams with Ron Howard for 'In The Heart of the Sea' - which looks hugely promising

But fear not, because there's a potentially excellent movie set for March 2015 that could renew your faith in cinema - real cinema. The first trailer for In The Heart of the Sea, Ron Howard's new movie, dropped this week and it looks hugely promising. The director reteams with Rush star Chris Hemsworth to tell the frightening true story of a New England whaling ship called Essex, assaulted by a mammoth whale in 1820. The maritime disaster inspired Herman Melville's Moby Dick, but that classic novel told only half the story.

In The Heart of The Sea - Teaser Trailer


In August of 1819, The Essex set sail from New England. The whaling ship set out beyond the edges of the map to hunt in unknown waters. What the 21-man crew discovered, was far from what they could ever have imagined. A sperm whale - absolutely gigantic and hell-bent on destroying their comparatively tiny ship. While battling the demon of a sea beast, the ship was destroyed, and many of the crew were killed. As the few survivors struggled to find land and make their way back to South America, they faced a harrowing adventure, and fought insanity, storms, starvation and despair. All with the great whale fresh in their minds. The crew referred to it as Moby Dick.

Marvel's Comic-Con Panel Was Packed With "Ultron" Stars And "Guardians" Footage


Robert Downey Jr Chris Hemsworth Jeremy Renner Cobie Smulders Samuel L Jackson Aaron Johnson Elizabeth Olsen James Spader Josh Brolin

No one is surprised that Marvel had big things prepared for their Comic-Con panel, after all it’s the biggest industry event of the year. Those, who missed out on a seat in Hall H, however, won’t have to wait long for the recaps and news leaks to start pouring in, not including (unfortunately) the long awaited announcement of the actor cast to play Dr. Strange in the upcoming film, HitFix reports.

Robert Downey Jr.
RDJ won't be the (only) star of the show this time.

The panel, which featured the longest superhero lineup of any event ever (we’re guessing here) included Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Paul Bettany (Vision), James Spader, who will be introduced as Ultron in Avengers: Age of Ultron and Josh Brolin, who was announced as the voice of Thanos. And breathe.

Robert Downey Jr Is The Biggest Earner In Hollywood, Again


Robert Downey Jr Dwayne Johnson Bradley Cooper Chris Hemsworth

Robert Downey Jr. is the highest paid actor in Hollywood for a second year running, Forbes has announced, putting Iron Man star top of the list with earnings totalling around $75 million. It is his involvement with the Marvel franchise that boosts his position to pole – the movie bagged around $1.2b when it was released last May and comprises the bulk of his counted earnings.

Given Iron Man’s heavy involvement with the Avengers team – the highest grossing single film in the entirety of the company’s output – Downey Jr. presence in the upcoming instalment, Age of Ultron, means he’ll be ‘there or there abouts’ for a few years to come, we’d predict.

With an estimated income of $75 million between June 2013 and June 2014, Downey Jr. shows that he's somewhat similar to his onscreen counterpart, billionaire superhero Tony Stark. 2014 has actually been a fairly quiet year for Downey Jr. considering there is no Marvel blockbuster hitting our screens (featuring him, at any rate) but he still managed to maintain his spot at the top.

The 5 Marvel Superheroes We'd Like To See In 'The Lego Movie 2'

Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the writer/director dream team behind the hugely successful The Lego Movie have said that they would love to feature Marvel heroes in The Lego Movie 2. The sequel, which is provisionally set to come out in May 2017, will be directed by Chris McKay, rather than Miller and Lord.

The Lego Movie 2 Marvel Superheroes The Lego Movie won over even the harshest critics to become one of the biggest films of 2013

Both have admitted it would be difficult to make it work with Marvel in The Lego Movie 2 because of legal issues. The Lego Movie was made by Warner Bros, so they were able to use all of the DC superheroes, as they are owned by Warner. Superman, the Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and The Flash all featured in the first Lego Movie, but would Marvel allow Warner to use their characters?

They're No Chris Hemsworth! Other Actors Considered For The Role Of 'Thor'


Chris Hemsworth Alexander Skarsgard Charlie Hunnam Liam Hemsworth

After owning the role in two hit movies, it’s hard to imagine any one other than gorgeous blond man-mountain, Chris Hemsworth, playing Marvel Comics superhero, Thor. You can’t even hear the word “Thor” without Chris coming into mind (we definitely don’t just sit here chanting “Thor” for this exact reason. Ahum).

chris hemsworth thor Thor has been played by Chris Hemsworth in both movies

But if you thought that he was the first choice to play the role, you’ll be sorely disappointed. Chris’ potential apparently didn’t shine through immediately for the producers, and although he auditioned early he was put to one side while other actors auditioned. Imagine if one of these actors had won the role instead of Chris. It’ll be hard to think about, but sometimes life is tough.

Superman Is Super-Sexy: Henry Cavill Tops 'Sexiest Man Alive' Poll

Henry Cavill has topped the latest poll by Glamour magazine to determine the '100 Sexiest Men Alive.'

The Twilight-star has long been a favourite for the magazine when compiling their yearly list of sexiest men, but this year the spandex-wearing DC superhero Cavill proved too dashing to ignore, as he leaped to the top spot. Cavill was chosen as the sexiest man alive by the magazine on the back of his successful turn as Superman in the blockbuster Man of Steel, with his chiselled abs and facial features probably going some way towards securing his spot at the top of the poll too.

Lady Gaga Artpop Launch

'ARTPOP' Drops: Lady GaGa released her fourth studio album, ARTPOP, on the 11th November after a rollercoaster few months ensuring her new record would hit the charts running. However, middling reviews and an anti-climactic release after months of leaked songs, incentives to buy and mini monster melt-downs means Mother Monster's new work may have misfired. But the elusive Gaga showed that through it all she had a sense of humour when she parodied her infamous meat dress on SNL. See how here.

Miley Cyrus' MTV EMAs Joint: Pop star Miley Cyrus continued her whirlwind of controversy during this week's MTV Europe Music Awards, held in Amsterdam. Miley performed her Bangerz hits 'We Can't Stop' and 'Wrecking Ball' in her characteristically skimpy outfits. See photos here. But it was when she puffed on a very suspicious roll-up during her 'Best Video' acceptance that made the internet buzz. Find out more here.

'Thor: The Dark World' Dominates The Weekend Box Office With Impressive Opening Gross


Chris Hemsworth Tom Hiddleston Johnny Knoxville Michael Douglas Robert De Niro Harrison Ford

Thor: The Dark World almost became the top grossing November release of all time this weekend when it managed to bring in an estimated $86 million in the domestic market since its Friday (Nov 8) release in the USA. It narrowly missed out on beating the record set by Skyfall in 2012, but its numbers are nonetheless a fantastic result for studio bosses at Marvel and Disney.

Thor 2
Chris Hemsworth is back as the God of Thunder

Benefiting from the global blockbuster that was Marvel's The Avengers, much like Iron Man 3 did earlier this year, the estimated weekend takings of Thor 2 prove that there is still a great deal of life left in the superhero genre and despite lukewarm reviews, the film still has a keen and dedicated audience. The domestic performance from Thor 2 mirrors the similar successes enjoyed by the film in the international market, where it has already grossed $240.9 million. Thor was released a week earlier in a number of key international markets, including the United Kingdom and Australia, and has continued to perform well overseas.

Tom Hiddleston On Playing An Ever Evolving Loki In "Thor: The Dark World"


Tom Hiddleston Chris Hemsworth

Tom Hiddleston might play one of the now iconic villains of the Marvel-verse, but the charitable actor actually has little in common with his character in Thor: The Dark World. This past Halloween, Hiddleston took the chance to get in touch with his youngest fans, appearing in full Loki garb before an audience of 300 children at a recent special Halloween screening of Thor: The Dark World. For USA Today, the actor explained that he loves reconnecting with his youngest fans, because they put everything into perspective.

The movie and especially Hiddleston's character have been a constant news item for the past two weeks.

"Sometimes it's easy to forget that's who we're doing it for," Hiddleston says. "It really brought home to me what a privilege it is to occupy a place in this particular universe. When you hear the pleasure and delight of children, it makes it all worth it."

It’s not that Thor: The Dark World is a particularly brilliant film – the indifferent reviews put an end to that kind of talk – but probably the lack of meaningful competition that mean this weekend will be Marvel-centric. Chris Hemsworth and his chums should clean up.

Thor is trying to restore peace across the cosmos, but an ancient race – lead by Malekith – have other ideas, and intend to restore the universe to its previous state of darkness.

Finally, Thor: The Dark World hits U.S cinemas tonight after months of build up, trailers, pictures and reviews. Without much competition, the film is expected to clean up this weekend’s box office with aplomb, but will you be handing over your hard-earned cash for Marvel’s latest blockbuster?

ThorChris Hemsworth as Thor in 'The Dark World.'

Marvel are certainly going through a purple patch; they built upon the success of 2012’s The Avengers – the third highest grossing movie of all time – with more solid efforts, like this year’s The Wolverine. And while they haven’t hit the heights of Joss Whedon’s ensemble masterpiece, things are rumbling along nicely.

Critics have been largely underwhelmed by the film and have described it as lacking in the vigour and excitement of its predecessor. Critics have commented on two particular, and crucial, aspects of the film: namely the "overcomplicated" plot and the "tacky 3D effects."

Disney have had some troubling releases in the past few years, with potential blockbusters (we won't name names) bombing tremendously when they came to the big screen. Its a good thing that the Marvel branch of their movie operations is performing so well then, as the latest Disney/Marvel release, Thor 2: The Dark World, has already made a sizeable impression on the overseas market since it was released last week.

Opening in the UK and France on Wednesday, 30 October, and other major markets Australia and Germany a day later, the film was the runaway winner at the weekend box office in each of these foreign markets and early predictions have estimated that the film could have made up to $100 million already. According to Box Office Mojo, the film has made an estimated $109,400,000 from foreign markets since it was released last week. When the film opens in the US on 8 November, there is a good chance that it could match this kind of popular reception and go on to make a hefty amount in the box office by the end of its run.

Thor: The Dark World Sees Chris Hemsworth And Tom Hiddleston More In Tune Than Ever


Chris Hemsworth Tom Hiddleston

It’s out. It’s here! Thor: The Dark World is finally in cinemas as of last Wednesday (in the UK and Europe) or Friday (in the US), and it is one of, if not the most buzz-worthy release of the season. Good or bad, that’s for moviegoers to decide on their own, but without spoiling anything for you, this might be the film in which we’ve seen Chris Hemsworth’s Thor and Tom Hiddleston’s Loki act more brotherly than ever. Maybe it’s that special bond that forms after doing three whole movies together or maybe it’s something else.

After all, Hemsworth and Hiddleston have spoken about their instant chemistry in plenty of interviews and their ability to riff off each other has only gotten better with time and further collaboration. But besides improving their working relationship, Hemsworth and Hiddleston have also inadvertently become experts on Norse mythology – more or less.

Tom Hiddleston Continues In His Quest To Be Hollywood's Nicest Man With Surprise Charity Visit At NYC Cinema


Tom Hiddleston Chris Hemsworth Natalie Portman

Tom Hiddleston has garnered a reputation as being one of the kindest gentlemen you would be lucky enough to run in to. Whether he's tackling poverty, giving kids a lift on his shoulders for the sake of it, bringing people soup or just generally being a good guy, the man sets an example across celeb-dom of how you should behave. So when it came time for him to choose between staying in London and partying with his Thor co-stars following the premiere of Thor: The Dark World, or flying across to New York City to surprise kids at an advanced charity screening of the film, you can bet he chose the latter.

Tom flew across the Atlantic just hours after attending the premiere of the Thor sequel to make a surprise, unannounced visit to an advanced screening of the film and to pay tribute to organisers at the Variety: the Children's Charity of New York and The Children's Aid Society. On Thursday, 31 October, the AMC Empire 25 cinema in Times Square held the one off Variety screening of the new Marvel adventure for the benefit of some of the city's underprivileged children - the perfect arena for Hiddleston to flex his gentlemanly muscles yet again.

Thor: The Dark World Review


Excellent

Marvel can't help itself: these movies have to get bigger and crazier. And this one leaves us wondering where they can possibly go next, as it spirals into a madly funny-scary thriller that threatens the existence of the whole universe. But it also feels like a story children would make up as they go along. Still, the sparky characters and wildly cataclysmic approach are hugely entertaining.

The action picks up right after the Battle of New York (see 2012's The Avengers), and scientist Jane (Portman) is miffed that Thor (Hemsworth) didn't call when he was back on Earth. She has just started dating a nebbish Londoner (O'Dowd) when her assistant Darcy (Dennings) stumbles into a spatial anomaly that draws Jane right into the middle of a 5,000-year-old struggle between Thor's home-realm Asgard and the dark elf Malekith (Eccleston), who wants to use a swirling goo called the Aether to plunge all of existence into blackness just as the universe aligns itself. As this convergence approaches, Thor defies his father Odin (Hopkins) and turns to his disgraced, malicious brother Loki (Hiddleston) for help.

The film is overcrowded with small but pivotal characters, including stern but helpful gatekeeper Heimdall (Elba), mad-doctor Erik (Skarsgard) and Odin's wise wife Frigga (Russo). All of them help distract us from the movie's wildly shifting tone as it darts from sardonic comedy to Lord of the Rings-style battles to silly romance to dark emotion. But the best thing is the tense, unpredictable relationship between Thor and Loki, an enjoyable mixture of sibling rivalry and brotherly love that's well-played by Hemsworth and especially Hiddleston. None of the other characters really has a chance to develop around them. But at least the actors have fun with their roles, including a number of hilarious cameos along the way (there are also two post-credit stings).

'Rush' Amazes Critics With High-Octane Rivalry: Was 1970s Racing Really That Dangerous?


Ron Howard Daniel Bruhl Chris Hemsworth

Racing movie Rush has premiered in the US and UK and has drawn the crowds, rising to the top of the week's box office charts in the UK and garnering positive critical attention. Though the movie focusses on the famous rivalry between 1970s Formula 1 Racing drivers - Britain's James Hunt and Austria's Niki Lauda - the storyline has been praised for rendering its mechanical detail and sporting emotions accessible to those who have little to no interest in racing.

The movie excels in its building of the tension between the two drivers, played by Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Brühl, as well as the high level of drama built up around what has been described as the golden era of racing. The drama of the sport is even emphasised in the trailer, where Brühl as Lauda declares "I accept every time I get in my car there's 20% chance I could die."
