We’ve figured for years that Warner Bros. would get around to remaking Lethal Weapon sooner or later. There has been no reported movement on the project, but with the title standing as one of the studio’s more recognizable and salable catalog titles, it has to happen. Now there are rumors of movement, and producers are at least not straying from the idea of an Australian in the lead role. Word is that Chris Hemsworth is being sought to star in the reboot, with Justin Lin as the possible director.
Update: At least half of this rumor is already debunked, as Justin Lin says he’s not doing the movie. More below.

For the last few years, one of the highlights of the Academy Awards night has been what comes after the Academy Awards. Namely, Jimmy Kimmel‘s post-Oscar spoof of Hollywood filmmaking at its grandest. This year was no exception.
After knocking it out of the park two years in a row with Movie: The Movie and its inevitable sequel, he switched gears this year to bring us highfalutin Oscar bait trailers starring the likes of Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Ben Kingsley… based on the likes of YouTube classics “David After Dentist,” “Keyboard Cat,” and “Charlie Bit My Finger.” Check ‘em all out after the jump.

At times it can seem like there’s little point to actually buying Blu-ray discs. Sure, there’s the little matter of the superior sound and picture, but these days you can legally download the film (usually a few weeks before the disc release) and watch almost all the extras early as the company disperses them across the internet before discs are on shelves. Case in point, Thor: The Dark World.
The Thor: The Dark World Blu-ray doesn’t hit shelves until February 25 but we’ve already seen multiple videos from the release including Tom Hiddleston as an Avenger, auditioning for Thor and even some deleted scenes. Now, we have an extended clip from the gag reel, which is pretty cute as far as gag reels go. Check it out below. Read More »
Briefly: There’s little info on this one at this point, but just one day after Marvel started to confirm plans for a third Captain America movie, a third Thor film is going into motion. One of the first key players is chosen from within Marvel’s offices.
Craig Kyle, writer and producer for many of Marvel’s animated efforts, a producer on both previous Thor films, and who has been a VP of Production and Development at Marvel, will co-wrote Thor 3. His partner will be Christopher Yost, who did a polish on the Thor: The Dark World script.
There’s no information on their story approach, nor of a possible director. That said, Kyle has teased the potential of Ragnarok in interviews given over the past year, so that could be something to look forward to. [Variety]
Minor spoilers for Thor: The Dark World follow.
By now, hopefully anyone who wanted to see Thor: The Dark World, has done so. The film had a super successful international box office run and the Blu-ray is coming out February 25. If you haven’t yet seen the movie you have lots to look forward to, including a hilarious highlight which was one of the last things shot in the movie.
That highlight is Loki being super-mischievous when talking to his brother Thor; we’ll explain more after the break, or you can simply watch an alternate version of the scene. Read More »

Thor: The Dark World is still a few weeks away, but it seems pretty likely to be a hit. I thought the movie was really fun, plenty of other critics agree, and fans are excited to see the Marvel Cinematic Universe continue to expand. All that makes it seem likely we’ll see Thor 3 in the future. In fact, Kevin Feige exclusively told us they do have ideas about that film, but it’s not in active development.
So what might those ideas be? Chris Hemsworth dropped a few hints on the Thor 3 plot in a new interview. Read that below and also check out a brand new, action-packed clip from the film, featuring Tom Hiddleston, that shows off the energy and humor present in Thor: The Dark World. Read More »
