A bevy of new images has emerged from the set of ‘Thor: Ragnarok. The most striking of these photos are the ones that show Sir Anthony Hopkins in costume. The surprising part is, that instead of wearing the majestic garb of the King of Asgard, Hopkins appears to be slumming it in dirty rags. Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston were also photographed and appear to be having a good time with each other.

Mark Ruffalo has just finished filming on the set of Thor: Ragnarok and had some great pictures and words to celebrate. The described buddy adventure between Rufflao’s Hulk and Chris Hemsworth‘s Thor is reported to draw heavily from the Planet Hulk story line that fans have been clamoring for since the first Avengers movie hit the big screen. Aside from Ruffalo’s kind words he also shared a few behind the scenes pictures with co-star Hemsworth that reveal a hairstyle change for the actor and his Asgardian double. (more…)

One of the films on the horizon for Marvel is the highly anticipated Thor: Ragnarok, which will end the trilogy of solo Thor movies. It’s been rumored that not only will The Incredible Hulk (as popularly played by Mark Ruffalo) be appearing in the film, but that a good portion of the film’s story will be adapted from the Planet Hulk comic story-arc, in which the Hulk becomes champion, and then ruler, of a super-powered gladiatorial planet in the far reaches of space. Well, something just arrived at SDCC that seems to confirm this story once and for all.  (more…)

Justin Lin‘s (Fast & Furious) Star Trek Beyond hits theaters this weekend and we’re sure to get an action packed ride, but will Simon Pegg‘s script also provide fans with that Star Trek feeling from the television series and movies that many fans have claimed was missing in the rebooted Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness? Check out this last trailer and find out. (more…)

Thor: Ragnarok started shooting this week in Australia and star Chris Hemsworth is on set ready to work. He’s very happy to show us some of his favorite contract riders, those things he requires to be on set for him to be happy in his work. Just like many musicians who want a bowl of M&M’s backstage, but only want green ones. Some of these contract riders can be very specific and demanding, just Google what Barbara Streisand‘s contract riders are and you’ll be amazed. Hemsworth’s aren’t as numerous, but are quite as demanding on the production team as Streisands. Check out Hemsworth’s video to find out why. (more…)

Ecto 1

Did you know today was Ghostbusters Day? Can’t blame you if you say you didn’t. Today, June 8th, marks the 32-year anniversary of the premiere of Ivan Reitman’s ‘Ghostbusters.’  In the original 1984 film, the Ecto-1 was a transformation of an old ambulance into the tricked-out transport for the spirit specialists. In Paul Feig‘s reboot, which debuts in almost 5 weeks, wanted to honor the classic vehicle but did a little upgrade. For the upcoming film starring Melissa McCarthy, Kirsten Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon, the director opted for an upgrade… a Cadillac hearse. A newly released featurette video shows the story of this iconic car and what to expect in the film. (more…)

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ is still nearly a year-and-a-half before it’s released and we already have been receiving great info for this third film in the Thor franchise. It’s been almost two weeks since the confirmation of several additions to the cast, including Cate Blanchett (Hela), Jeff Goldblum (Grandmaster), Karl Urban (Skurge), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie) and Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner/The Hulk confirmed to appear. That right there is a great indicator that this film will be more of a team-up film than a solo story. Now we are hearing that this movie has some great surprises lined up for fans that will further establish the Marvel Cinematic Universe. (more…)

This trailer won’t change the minds of many old school Ghostbusters fans, but if this latest International trailer had been the first Ghostbusters Reboot trailer anyone saw, we might have avoided a lot of the band wagon hating that went on. The first trailers were awful, the jokes didn’t fall, the pacing was erratic, and again the jokes were just off. Paul Feig might have had a chance if he’d cut this trailer in the first place. The Question is, did Paul Feig cut this trailer? (more…)

Of course, we live in an age when the only currency in film seems to be whether there’s life for the story after the credits roll. From sequels, prequels, and spin-offs to books, video games, and TV shows, making a movie isn’t so much its own reward as a downpayment on years of profits made from all the other things you can stamp its name on. And then there’s The Huntsman: Winter’s War. It’s the epitome of these I.P.-obsessed times; a prequel and sequel to a hit film based on a fairy tale, and at once trying to attract old fans while attracting new ones by shaking things up just enough. And thus it fails on many levels.  (more…)
