There are two months left until Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters, which may seem like a painfully long time but is really nothing compared to the two years and ten months we’ve already been waiting for it. In the meantime, Marvel Studios is happy to tide us over with the occasional tidbit, like the new Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer promised earlier this week.

Joss Whedon returns to direct the superpowered gang, including Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye.

In addition, the latest trailer offers a good look at some of the Avengers’ new friends and foes, including Paul Bettany as Vision. Watch the new Avengers Age of Ultron trailer after the jump.

Chris Hemsworth Avengers 2 Interview

On June 12th 2014, I visited the London set of Avengers: Age of Ultron. In October, we posted our on set interviews with Mark RuffaloRobert Downey Jr. and director Joss WhedonToday we’ve been given the green light to publish our interview with another Avenger: Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth. Here is a short snippet from Hemsworth explaining how the stakes in this film are more dire:

I think [Thor] openly admits, “I don’t think we’re going to win this one.” The threat is so great that I think all of them are sort of scratching their heads going, “Is this it?” rather than, “Okay, we have to kill this many things.” It’s just an onslaught and it doesn’t stop. It’s sort of an open sort of floodgate and what it could also set in motion is an even bigger threat. I think that’s what’s Thor’s kind of stuck on or where his is attention certainly is, an even bigger picture of Thor being from Asgard. He can just say, “Hang on, there’s a whole universe here which is signaling something else.”

Huntsman director

It’s been an up and down news cycle for The Huntsman, which will be Universal’s prequel to the 2012 film Snow White and the Huntsman. First there was the news that it would leave out Snow White, but then came the announcement that Frank Darabont would write and direct. In a surprise move, however, Darabont pulled out of directing last week, thanks to “creative differences.” Now Universal has signed Cedric Nicolas-Troyan — the second-unit director and visual effects supervisor on the original film — to direct The Huntsman.

In the Heart of the Sea trailer 2

The Rush team of director Ron Howard and star Chris Hemsworth reunite for In the Heart of the Sea, which tells a variation on the Moby Dick story by adapting a novel that recounts one story which inspired Herman Melville to write his landmark novel. A large and particularly determined whale features in this story, too, and then there’s everything that happens around the encounter with the animal, which causes the crew of the whaling ship Essex to deal with multiple forms of crisis at sea. Check out the new In the Heart of the Sea trailer below.

new blackhat trailer

Cyber-crime is in the air, and as it turns out, the timing couldn’t be better for Michael Mann‘s upcoming thriller Blackhat. Chris Hemsworth plays an incarcerated hacker who makes a deal for freedom by working with the feds to stop a criminal who can, apparently, hack anything, anywhere. The recent Sony hack looks like nothing compared to this guy’s effort — he can shut down and even destroy nuclear sites, and render any system inoperable. Check out the new Blackhat trailer below.
