    New 'Thor' Poster Announces The God Of Thunder

    So, will "Thor" drop a hammer of absurdity or will it manage to make something worthy out of a tough concept to bring to the screen? Hard to say, but so far, we've seen evidence of both in the trailers but we're hopeful at the very least for an entertaining ride.

    Watch: Robert Pattinson Perma-Broods In New 'Water For Elephants' Trailer

    Now, before we get inundated with angry comments from RPatz fans, let's be clear. The headline above is more a comment on movie marketers who realize the best way to get hearts aflutter of girls and women everywhere and get them to flock to the theaters, is to show endless shots of RPatz being sad, confused or frustrated or some kind of combination of the three. And while we'll leave our opinions on the movie until we see it, that's the truth folks, like it or lump it.

    Max Winkler Talks Jason Reitman's 'Whispers In Bedlam,' 'The Adventurer's Handbook' Still Waiting

    Winkler and Matt Spicer Also Sell 'The First Man' To Paramount Starring Johnny KnoxvilleFledgling filmmaking duo, director/writer Max Winkler and producer/writer Matt Spicer might not be household names at the moment, but if the frequency with which their names keep appearing in the film trades continues, the up-and-coming duo are going to be a familiar force to be reckoned with. The two have their debut feature film, "Ceremony" (which Winkler wrote and directed, Spicer produced) coming to theaters on April 8th starring Uma Thurman and Michael Angarano, and two big name writing projects- "The Ornate Anatomy of Living Things" and "The Adventurer's Handbook" -- sold to studios, both with serious buzz surrounding them.

    10 Weird Animated Films

    Almost every week it seems like there's a new animated film being released to the multiplexes (many of them in the costly and annoying 3D format), so it takes a special kind of film to break out of the (mostly) computer animated pack. Which is why it's so nice to report that "Rango," Gore Verbinski's surrealist spaghetti western (which stars Johnny Depp as a chameleon searching for his identity), is profoundly weird. It's this trait, along with its jaw-dropping gorgeous animation, that makes it stand out, loud and proud, and should ensure a long and fruitful life (if not immediate commercial success and/or acceptance).

    Elle & Dakota Fanning To Play The Shaggs In A Biopic?

    How do you prevent sibling rivalry? Do a movie together. Not a band plan at all, but when it's something as potentially amazing as this, we hope the Fanning sisters work collaboratively more often.

    movie review: The Adjustment Bureau

    I’m a sucker for movies about fate, destiny, and heavenly intervention—going all the way back to On Borrowed Time and Here Comes Mr. Jordan up through Ghost Town with Ricky Gervais—so I was more than willing to accept the premise of The Adjustment Bureau, based on Philip K. Dick’s short story. In this case, the buttoned-down business types played by Anthony Mackie and John Slattery are here on earth to make sure things go “according to plan.” So when hotshot politician Matt Damon chances to meet Emily Blunt and falls in love at first sight, they’re forced to—
