You’d think this would have happened sooner given the popularity of vampires and hipsters over the past few years, but obviously it takes the talent of somebody like Jim Jarmusch to pull off hipster vampires. Or vampire hipsters. They don’t really believe in labels.

Only Lovers Left Alive stars Tilda Swinton and Loki as incredibly cultured and super emotionally detached pale vampires who were listening to Shubert in the early 1800′s. That’s like nearly 150 years before you had heard of him.

We’ve already covered how well Comedy Central is advertising Thor: The Dark World. However, over in China, the marketing is taking a very “different” approach. Apparently there’s more to Thor and Loki’s dynamic than we all realized.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that. If they’re happy then I’m happy for them. (Reddit)

Everybody loves AT&T’s campaign starring Beck Bennett and a random array of adorable children, so Comedy Central decided to recast the spots with Loki. The result: awesome.

There should be a Loki spin-off film where he’s banished to Earth where he has to prove himself as a kindergarten teacher before being allowed back in Asgard. With a Tony Stark cameo, of course.

Because It’s Only Fair, People Now Want Loki From ‘The Avengers’ To Get His Own Movie http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/because-its-only-fair-people-now-want-to-loki-from-the-avengers-to-get-his-own-movie/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/because-its-only-fair-people-now-want-to-loki-from-the-avengers-to-get-his-own-movie/#comments Wed, 11 Sep 2013 19:53:09 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=256934 There's nothing studio execs take more seriously than a fan-made petition.

Seeing as how everyone, even the hot dog vendors, who appeared in The Avengers DESERVE a film of their own, it’s no surprise that new fan-favorite Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston, is the subject of a campaign to get him his own film.

While this petition is, in name, specific to Hiddleston and Loki, what it really says is “we want a comic book film every month until we all die.”

As if Hollywood isn’t accelerating this trend of mining familiar franchises fast enough, we’ve now got nerds whipping them, petition-style, yelling “Faster. FASTER!”

Before we go mining through those secondary, less familiar characters, I really think the well-known guys like Wolverine and Daredevil should get their own films first. A Daredevil movie would be amazing.

The silly petition can be found here.

Hot on the heels of Tom Hiddleston‘s dramatic action-figure reenactment of Thor: The Dark World comes this new trailer that pretty much backs up everything the actor laid out. This one’s less adorable, though there is a rock monster.

When asked about the plot of Thor 2: The Dark World, Tom Hiddleston (aka Loki) presented action figures to act out what’s in store for Thor, Christopher Ecclestton’s Malekith, and himself in the upcoming sequel. The results are adorable.

H’Wood Fun Fact: This is also how Stephen Sommers pitches his movies.

Poor Loki. Not only is he locked away in the least ornate of Asgard’s prisons for eternity, but his bosses at the bank took his ideas and put them into practice without giving him a promotion. The bank saves money, and they are using him, and he is the fool.

Also, his adopted brother Thor wants to team up and be frenemies in order to save Jane Foster. It seems that Thor‘s bonehead idea of warping her to a dark, mystical battlefield has put her life in the type of peril that can’t be easily solved by throwing a hammer around. He’s really got to broaden his horizons.

Though we aren’t shown any imagery of horses firing weapons at one another, the full-length War Horse trailer looks pretty good. The Steven Spielberg film tells the story of Joey, a horse purchased for World War I combat, and his owner as he joins the war in an effort to reclaim his horse. What the hell? I don’t understand. Did the animal eat something that was important to him? Why is he so attached to that thing? Somebody’s got to teach that kid how commerce works.

We can find out for sure when the film is released on Christmas Day.

Loki The God of Mischief Also The God Of Not Being In ‘The Avengers’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/loki-the-god-of-mischief-also-the-god-of-not-being-in-the-avengers/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/loki-the-god-of-mischief-also-the-god-of-not-being-in-the-avengers/#comments Mon, 11 Apr 2011 19:14:53 +0000 Joseph Gibson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=206467 But he still might be the villain of 'The Expendables 2'

Loki would be the villain in the upcoming movie, The Avengers. This rumor, like all good rumors, made a lot of sense – comic readers know that Loki was the villain who cause The Avengers to form in the first place. But it turns out this probably isn’t the case, at least according to Tom Hiddleston, who plays Loki in Thor. At the recent KAPOW convention in London, Hiddleston “strongly hinted” that Loki won’t be the main villain of The Avengers, and also suggested he won’t be appearing in the movie at all.

So now it’s time to take part in the Internet’s favorite pastime – mindless speculation. I’m mindlessly speculating that the villain in The Avengers will be … Don Draper! They can do a storyline in which Draper discovers the secret to eternal youth that gives him superpowers, so it could still be set in the present day. Make this happen, Marvel. (The Daily Blam)

The people over at Thor‘ target=’_blank’>Thor-2′ target=’_blank’>Thor Posters Inc have been catching some flack for perceived laziness, since many of the posters have that “90s superhero movie” look and feel to them. Then, when they try to do something different, they catch holy hell from poster aficionados too! So it looks like this time, with these 6 character posters that have been released on several different websites recently, they decided to split the difference. They look like the infamous “red” posters, but with a more traditional color scheme. It remains to be seen if everyone on the internet will be satisfied with these.

The posters feature six characters from the movie, and they look like they should be holding cards with their heights and weights. There’s Chris Hemsworth at Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster and Jaimie Alexander as Sif. Now you know a little bit more about Norse mythology than you did before. Thanks, Marvel! (via Firstshowing.net)

First Official Look At Anthony Hopkins As Steampunk Santa In Marvel’s ‘Thor’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/first-official-look-at-anthony-hopkins-as-steampunk-santa-in-marvels-thor/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/first-official-look-at-anthony-hopkins-as-steampunk-santa-in-marvels-thor/#comments Wed, 14 Jul 2010 18:14:53 +0000 Reza F. 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.
