    Review: Marvel's 'Thor: The Dark World,' With Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman & Tom Hiddleston

    New Release Trailer For 'Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom' Ramps Up The Drama & Action

    This is probably the best-looking trailer for the film I've seen thus far (it's the 3rd one we've posted). Although, as I watched it, I kept thinking, this looks like it could be a pretty damn good movie - that is, if it wasn't about Nelson Mandela!
