There is only one person in Hollywood fit to play a ruggedly handsome ship captain who is forced to fight for his life when an inexplicably angry whale decides to make his life a living hell—and that person is Chris Hemsworth. Pretty (but not too pretty), tough (but no too threatening), and recognizable (without being too expensive), his casting makes ‘In the Heart of the Sea’ all the more interesting, because it’s hard to imagine very many other actors not looking totally ridiculous in new trailer. He really is a 19th century ship’s captain for the 21st century.
The words “ ...The next Pearl Harbor that we confront could very well be a cyber-attack...” open the trailer for Michael Mann’s upcoming cyber-thriller ‘Blackhat.’ Somewhere, right now, a dozen Sony executives are nodding grimly in agreement.
Chris Hemsworth has fought Frost Giants, Dark Elves, Destroyers, Chitauris, rock creatures and even Hulks, but in his next movie - 'In the Heart of the Sea' - he's going to fight something even bigger than all of those things: a really, really, really big whale.
In the current world we live in - what with the celebrity nude photo scandal - cybercrime is at the forefront of a lot of the conversation. How do we keep ourselves and our identities safe? Such is the plot of 'Blackhat,' the new Chris Hemsworth thriller that stars the 'Avengers' actor as the world's leading hacker (who also happens to be beautiful and is really good at punching people in the face).
It's inevitable: one day there will be an 'Avengers' reboot. It's hard to think of now, as 'Avengers 2' hasn't even hit theaters and Phase 3 of Marvel's Cinematic Universe hasn't even begun yet. But, once Robert Downey, Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner all play through their contracts, Marvel is going to have to start over. Now, we don't think Marvel would ever reboot 'The Avengers' as a 70s detective TV series, but if they did? It'd look a lot like this...
It's been a little while since we've heard anything about the new 'Vacation' sequel/reboot with former 'Office' star Ed Helms playing a grown-up Rusty Griswold -- but rest assured, this 'Vacation' is still very much happening, and has just packed up two very awesome accessories: 'Thor' star Chris Hemsworth and 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' star Charlie Day. This is going to be the best 'Vacation' ever!
By now, everyone is familiar with the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, where people heed the call to throw buckets of ice water on themselves to spread awareness of ALS and raise donations to support The ALS Association. Everyone, from your many Facebook friends to A-list celebs have been participating, but, for us, there's nothing like seeing the likes of Thor, Iron Man and Star-Lord step up to the plate.
For those eager to return to the darkly whimsical world of 'Snow White and the Huntsman,' we have good news: Universal has given 'Snow White and the Huntsman 2' a release date. But that's not all, the upcoming sequel to the 2012 film also has an official, shorter title, ditching Snow White altogether.
To the delight of the Comic-Con 2014 attendees, Marvel spent a great deal of time toting around its 'Avengers 2' and 'Ant-Man' casts, but refrained from giving us many updates on the future film slate. They did officially announce 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' for 2017, but what about 'Thor 3'? We caught up with the Asgardian himself, Chris Hemsworth, on the Marvel press line following the panel to get an update.
During Marvel Studio's big presentation at Comic-Con 2014, nearly the entire 'Avengers 2' cast came out on the Hall H stage to tease their next big battle and screen the first footage for the fans. But what the audience didn't see was all the post-action. The stars came out to chat with press about all things Ultron, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, the post-'Winter Soldier' S.H.I.E.L.D., and what each character is up to in this brave new world.
