    '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...

    Great Odin's Raven! Early Reviews Suggest 'Thor' Is Actually Kind Of Decent

    The summer of superheroes is about to kick off, and it's only a matter of days until the world gets its first look at "Thor," Marvel's latest piece of an insanely ambitious five-film plan building towards next summer's team-up movie, "The Avengers." And for some time, it looked like the film had an uphill battle ahead of it -- last year's "Iron Man 2" was, at best, a disappointment, and early looks at "Thor" had veered from the underwhelming to the silly.

    New 'Thor' Trailer Focuses On The Earthbound Hero; Is... Better, Marginally Better

    At this point in the super hero tentpole sweepstakes of 2011, Kenneth Branagh has his work cut out for him and is playing catch up. When the venerable director was first announced as the helmer for Marvel's live-action adaptation of their Asgardian hero “Thor,” many of us discerning filmgoers presum...

    Excessive Lightning, Chisled Pecs, Sci-Fi Goop & Gods Lore Light Up 'Thor' Super Bowl Spot

    At this point, we're not holding out judgement on any of these kinds of films, hell, these are :30 second Super Bowl spots. The idea is definitely: have a beer, lean back and enjoy yourself, right? But, gotta say, the trailer for Kenneth Branagh's "Thor" is definitely less impressive than "Captain A...

    Actress Talks Taking On Iconic Role For whatever reason (perhaps a sudden influx of late-night cable repeats of "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes"...), Marilyn Monroe is somewhat in vogue. For instance, Andrew Dominik is working on an adaptation of Joyce Carol Oates' Monroe-centric novel "Blonde," with Nao...
