    Chris Hemsworth Will Feel The 'Rush' As Formula 1 Driver James Hunt In Ron Howard Flick

    It has been quite the journey for Chris Hemsworth from his days on the Aussie soap "Home And Away." He proved himself capable of carrying a comic movie with charm and charisma to spare with "Thor" and he's got a slate of projects on the way including "The Cabin In The Woods," "Red Dawn," "The Avenge...

    But Of Course: 'Snow White And The Huntsman' Is The First Of A Planned Trilogy

    There are many arguments to be made that "Star Wars" ruined the movies, but one of the more persuasive is the way that it popularized the idea of the trilogy. George Lucas didn't invent the concept (that would have been the Ancient Greeks, thank you), but by making both the original films and the prequels, he popularized the concept, ensuring that almost any hit film would be intended as only the first part of three films, each one bigger than the last. And to a degree, it makes sense: it mirrors the three act structure that virtually every screenplay uses as a template, enabling a complete story with ups and downs to be told over a longer r...

    'Thor 2' Will Drop Its Hammer On July 26, 2013; Chris Hemsworth Is Back, Kenneth Branagh Is Not

    Say what you will about "Thor" -- and we definitely had a lot to say about the uneven movie -- but audiences seemed to love it. In fact, it's one of the only movies this summer season to come in first at the box office two weeks in a row, which in this age of big weekends followed by quick drop-offs...

    Chris Hemsworth Is A 'Shadow Runner' In Film Inspired By Killing Of Hamas Leader Mahmoud al Mabhouh

    After proving he could wield the mighty hammer of "Thor" with wit and charm to spare (one of the few lively things in the otherwise kind of stodgy comic movie), Chris Hemsworth is springboarding into other films. He's got "Snow White And The Huntsman" on his dance card, a couple of completed movies ...
