The first trailer for the film, released today, indicates that it’s only a matter of time until the rabid Tom Hiddleston fans and equally rabid J.G. Ballard fans get what they crave.

With their awesome Phase Two box set hitting retailers in just a few days, Marvel has been releasing a few of the extras featured in the collection to give us a teeny tiny taste of the vast array of special features we’ll find within. In addition to showing off Chris Pratt and Dave Bautista’s Guardians of the Galaxy audition, the studio has revealed this deleted scene from Thor: The Dark World, which puts Tom Hiddleston’s Loki in a position of great power — sort of.
We know Tom Hiddleston is a great actor, we know he’s got some serious dance moves (watch out, Sam Rockwell), and now we know he can belt out a tune, as the actor does his own singing in the upcoming Hank Williams biopic I Saw the Light. You can catch a preview of the actor’s singing abilities in the new, full trailer for the film, which was recently pushed back to next March.
If you were getting excited about seeing Tom Hiddleston croon as country legend Hank Williams in I Saw the Light, it looks like you’re going to have to wait a little longer. The upcoming country music biopic has been pushed back four months from its November release date, moving out of awards season and into the middle of next spring. But early buzz on the film suggests it may not have been cut out for awards season anyway.
Prepare yourself... for the EXTREMELY LARGE MONSTERS CINEMATIC UNIVERSE.
Alfred Hitchcock had a saying: “Logic is dull.” On the basis of Crimson Peak, it’s pretty clear Guillermo del Toro feels the same way.
Tom Hiddleston, despite being an otherwise extremely pleasant and lovely human being, has a habit of playing some evil dudes. There’s Loki, from The Avengers, Adam from Only Lovers Left Alive, and now Thomas Sharpe in Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak. What do directors see in this charming actor to cast him as an antihero? Is he secretly a monster? Does he hate Beyoncé and puppies? We caught up with Hiddleston recently to talk about Crimson Peak and to get to the bottom of this mystery.
There are so many characters and so much going on in Avengers: Age of Ultron, making it Marvel’s biggest film to date. But there was one character who was sorely missed: Tom Hiddleston’s charismatic villain Loki, who didn’t have so much as a cameo appearance in the film — not that they had much room for him. As it turns out, Loki was in an earlier cut of Age of Ultron, but Joss Whedon removed his brief cameo in post-production.
Tom Hiddleston is a man of many talents — he’s handsome, he can act, he can dance (watch out, Sam Rockwell), and soon he’ll prove his singing talents in the Hank Williams biopic I Saw the Light. But he’s also quite skilled with celebrity impressions, as he proved this week on The Graham Norton Show, where he was asked to do his Robert De Niro impression for none other than De Niro himself.
Director Ben Wheatley and his screenwriting partner Amy Jump are known for their specific, darkly humorous sensibilities, from the horror thriller Kill List to the black and white psychedelic intensity of A Field in England, and the bleak hilarity of Sightseers. The duo return this year with High-Rise, based on J.G. Ballard’s sophisticated dystopian tale of class warfare in an elegant apartment block. It may be his most inaccessible and tonally ambitious film to date, but it also might be his best.
