    Jessica Chastain on Malick and Seeing The Tree of Life: "You Can't Help But Be Changed"

    We recently featured Jessica Chastain as one of our Four Rising Stars of 2011, and the world will soon discover why. The premiere of Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life (May 16 at Cannes) will kick off a series of high profile projects, from Al Pacino's Wilde Salome (premiering at the Venice Film Festival this September) to this summer's The Help (August 12).

    Does the "Thor" Ending Hurt or Help Your Anticipation of "The Avengers"?

    The "Avengers" film franchise may not really be the equivalent of a Ponzi scheme, as A.O. Scott considers it, because the primary audience for "Thor" is also the primary audience for "Captain America" and "The Avengers" and so on anyway. They don't need the chain-linking of plot through each install...

    'Thor': The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

While most critics seemed to give the Marvel comic adaptation a shrug of approval (including us -- we gave it a B- and called it "mostly entertaining" though around the offices, most of us were split on the film, and audiences were a bit more cagey about seeing the mighty hammer up on screen. The film opened to a conservative $66 million. Yes, it was the second highest first-weekend gross this year so far, but for May, this is considered a soft summer opening if you look at the past ("Iron Man" movies and "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" both did higher numbers). This could mak...
