If you’re having an Asgard-attack, then we’ve got the inhaler for you: a brand new ‘Thor’ trailer.
Even the Nordic demi-god can’t fathom the scale of this film.
Not ones to be outdone by Spider-Man, Captain America and Thor would like you to know that they that they look pretty cool in their superhero clothes too.
Maybe Thor vs. The Green Hornet would be a pretty one-sided street fight, but their respective marketing teams have released competitively badass new movie posters.
Marvel has dropped the new trailer for Thor after debuting the Spawn-esque poster earlier today. It stars Chris Hemsworth as the superhero whose weapon of choice is a heavy-ass hammer. Anthony Hopkins plays Odin/Steam Punk Santa.
Chris Hemsworth dresses up like Spawn for the Thor poster.
If a superhero is going to have a mentor, it should be someone major like Brando or The Dude. Sir Anthony Hopkins is another good one. Playing Odin in the big movie version of Thor, Sir Anthony enjoyed messing with beefy Chris Hemsworth.
“I’m glad I’m not young anymore because you see their insecurities and I always joke along with them,” Hopkins said while he was promoting the Woody Allen comedy You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger. “I say things like, ‘Is that the way you’re going to play it?’ Chris and I got to know each other but he was looking nervous and I said, ‘Oh, is that the way you’re going to play it?’ He said, ‘Yeah, is it okay?’ I said, ‘Well, it’s your career.’’

Hey Thor fans! Have we got a treat for you! In anticipation of this weekend's Comic-Con panel, Marvel released a photo from its upcoming Thor film. In the photo, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is using his fabled hammer (Mjolnir) to smash an evil pile of elephant sh*t.
Careful, Thor. That tank in the background looks flammable! (EmpireOnline)
The LA Times has premiered a new pic of the Hall Of Asgard from Marvel's big-screen Thor. In the photo, we see Thor kneeling before Odin as Loki, Frigga, Fandal the Dashing, and Hogun the Grim look on. I don't want to be blasphemous just in case there is a God and he's played by Anthony Hopkins, but this is the Hall Of Asgard? It looks more like the set for a porno awards show. I haven't heard of any plans to have Ron Jeremy accept a Lifetime Achievement Award in the film, but maybe Kenneth Branagh will include that after the credits or as a DVD Easter Egg.
Today we have our first official look at Sir Anthony Hopkins as Odin in Marvel's Thor. Oof. One minute you're turning in thoughtful, Oscar-worthy performances. The next, you're threatening to retire because the movie where you pretended to be a feral, chimp man didn't connect with audiences. Then all of a sudden, you're in some weird, muscley armor walking through a Roman sewer with a piece of foil double-sticked to your eye. Thus, is the life of the thespian.The LA Times debuted this photo along with the news that both Thor and Captain America will undergo a 3D post conversion process before hitting theaters. Marvel and the filmmakers are well aware of the challenges this decision creates, and that is why they will spend "an unprecedented amount of time" on the conversion. What do you expect them to do? They've already shot too much footage of hammers and shields being thrown at the camera to turn back now.
I'd say he took the news rather well.Marvel Studios recently gave Edward Norton a polite f*ck off by informing the actor they wouldn't need him to reprise his role of The Hulk in the upcoming The Avengers movie to be directed by Joss Whedon. The studio is looking to cast an unknown, a.k.a. someone they can pay with turkey sandwiches. According to HitFix, this wasn't Norton or Whedon's idea, as the pair had recently shared their enthusiasm with Marvel about Norton returning. Norton even cleared out his day planner for the project, using puffy Hulk stickers to mark the dates he'd need open for shooting.This news doesn't come as much of a surprise considering Marvel is notorious for dumping actors in favor of the almighty dollar. They probably figure they've already got Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Hemsworth, Don Cheadle, and Jeremy Renner, so people are going to get their asses to the theater whether Norton's in it or not. Also, during the making of The Incredible Hulk, Norton and Marvel butted heads over almost every aspect of the film. Maybe the studio is just trying to prevent the same from happening on The Avengers. Joss Whedon would put Norton in a coma with that alien-like cranium of his.
"Entertainment Tonight" visited the set of Marvel's Thor and got some facetime with Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman as they flirt up a storm. It's like seriously, dude. You and your c-blocking camera crew should get out of there and give those two some privacy. On second thought, leave the camera. As far as "ET" videos go, this one's kind of hard-hitting. It even shows some restraint (it takes them a full three minutes and nineteen seconds to discuss Chris Hemsworth's workout regimine). In addition; we get a glimpse of Sir Anthony Hopkins as Odin, and Hemsworth fesses up to his "Dancing With The Stars" roots. Really? He was on "Dancing With The Stars?" Suddenly this Kim Kardashian as Tomb Raider rumor doesn't sound so far-fetched.Check it out after the jump…
Looks like China's a little bit touchy about that whole being a communist superpower thing. A state-run paper is miffed that producers of Red Dawn have chosen to villify them in the upcoming remake, instead of the Soviet Union as they did in the original. Problem is, there is no Soviet Union anymore. We crushed them after watching the original Red Dawn. Oh hey, I think I see their point."Despite the world's focus on U.S.-China relations in the strategic and economic dialogue and their increasing economic connections, China can still feel U.S. distrust and fear, especially among its people. Americans' suspicions about China are the best ground for the hawks to disseminate fear and doubt, which is the biggest concern with the movie Red Dawn."Oh, poor wittle China. Gonna cry? Gonna cry?? China gonna cry? Wh-what are you doing?? No, put that tank back. I was just blogging in a snarky manner. The internet demands it!!! AAAARRRGGGHHHH!!!!! (via Cinematical)
Please relax your eyes and stare at the above image. Now, tell Dr. Johnson what you see. Is it a) early concept art of Chris Hemsworth as Marvel's Thor, b) Will Ferrell dressed as Viggo the Carpathian, or c) Dog the Bounty Hunter accentuating his wardrobe with peacocking flair after reading "The Game?" Answer below.It's Thor, you guys. (Collider)More unofficially official images of Thor after the jump…
Go on, soak it up. Here's the first image of Chris Hemsworth as Marvel's next blockbuster busting character Thor. I'm diggin' the snake skin sleeve. It's like a Hot Topic superhero version of UnderArmor. That material soaks up sweat and brings it to the outside layer so it can dry faster, yo.My guess is the marketing bigwigs are revealing elements of Thor slowly and methodically. As you'll notice, there's no helmet or hammer in the above pic. Also, it's a close-up, so we don't get a good idea of what Thor is brooding over. My first inclination was he's taking a crap, but then I thought it's ridiculous to take a crap with your cape still on. Now if you'll excuse me, my morning coffee is taking effect. **Unbuttons cape, waddles to bathroom** (Yahoo)
Two scoops of vanilla Sean Bean? Yes please! The trailer for Ca$h features Sean Bean as two brothers: one evil, one more evil. More Evil Bean tells Evil Bean that he dropped a briefcase full of stolen cheddar over a bridge right before the cops nabbed him. Now Evil Bean has to find the unlucky couple (Chris Hemsworth & Victoria Profeta) who thought they were pretty damn lucky when spending the dough on new couches and Range Rovers. A whirlwind ride ensues as Evil Bean forces the couple to knock over liquor stores and banks in order to pay him back the money they stole from More Evil Bean. The film is directed by Stephen Milburn Anderson, who directed gritty South Central way back in 1992. Looks like some of that same grit worked itself into the crevices of Ca$h. Check out the trailer after the jump. Ca$h kicks theater doors in this Friday.
