There are ordinary, everyday ripoffs and there are thefts so bold they’re almost impressive in the degree of their thievery. What I admire about The Huntsman: Winter’s War, the sorta-prequel to 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman, is that very shamelessness. They basically swapped out Snow White (she’s a baby here; she grew up to be Kristen Stewart in the first movie) for Elsa from Frozen. They’re not even pretending. They just want all the little girls who loved Frozen and are now three years older to come check out this movie.
Early this morning, Sony Pictures relaunched the official site for Ghostbusters, the home of the original two movies, the cartoons and the upcoming reboot. Along with the relaunch, we got five new photos from the film, each highlighting one of the main characters from the movie, including our first look at Chris Hemsworth as the new Ghostbusters secretary. Eat your heart out, Janine Melnitz!
We are still about a year and a half away from the release of Thor: Ragnarok, but the rumors just keep pouring in. In addition to last week’s report on Cate Blanchett’s potential villainous role, another report has surfaced, this time suggesting how Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk may enter the picture, and it sounds just crazy enough to be true.
Chris Hemsworth (better known to some of you mere mortals as Thor) returns for his second outing as SNL host, following the utter giggle-fest that was last week’s episode, aka Ryan Gosling’s Laugh-In. Hemsworth absolutely killed it the last time he took the SNL stage, and he was certainly impressive again this week — particularly when paired with Kyle Mooney, whose particular set of goofy comedic skills worked incredibly well with the charming guest host. Read on for our rankings of this week’s sketches from best to worst
There’s a gigantic sea monster! There’s Chris Hemsworth’s muscular and skeletal frame! There’s harpoons and storms and dolphins and waves and adventure! There’s even a British man (played by Ben Whishaw) narrating the story as told by another very talented actor (Brendan Gleeson). By the sounds of it, In the Heart of the Sea must be a whale of a tale. But sadly, Ron Howard’s latest falls very short of its epic endeavors.
This past weekend’s SNL got a little giggly with Ryan Gosling, but there’s no way a seasoned pro like Chris Hemsworth will break form, right? Find out for yourself in the first promo of the Avengers star’s return, as Leslie Jones reveals just a few other superheroes ahead of Thor.
Despite having a strong presence in both of the Avengers movies, Thor’s standalone films have definitely been the most disappointing of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This fact is not lost on Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, who admits it’s time to do “something different” in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok and that something different is comedy.
Chris Hemsworth certainly looks the part of a man who’s been stranded at sea; at least 30 pounds lighter than his Thor physique. The shabby clothes hang off him like a kid playing dress up with his parents’ clothes. Don’t get me wrong: behind the beard, the dirt and the sackcloths, Chris Hemsworth is still a pretty handsome dude (it’s almost not fair). I was able to speak with Hemsworth for a few moments about what it was like to build up all that muscle, lose it again, and then have to build it all back up.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, what Snow White sequel is the least Snow White-y of them all?
SNL bounced back nicely from Donald Trump this past weekend with The Hunger Games star Elizabeth Banks, looking even bigger this coming Saturday with Matthew McConaughey and Adele, but December 2015 will really go all out. Our final three hosts of the year include Ryan Gosling, Chris Hemsworth (poor Liam), and best of all, a dual Sisters hosting with SNL alum Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
