Marvel Studios and Paramount will be unleashing Thor upon the world in just under two months — the film opens on May 6 — and we could well see another chunk or two of the film released to the public before opening day. In the meantime, check out the French trailer for the film, which offers a couple of very slight new visions that didn’t make it into the last couple domestic trailers. Read More »

‘Thor’ Trailer

In late July we saw a leaked version of the Comic Con trailer for Thor. The very unofficial release spread like wildfire, but Marvel Studios managed to scrub it away from many corners of the web.

Now the official trailer release is out, and you can see it after the break. Read More »

Marvel Studios Starts Shooting Thor in January

thor_art

This is basically TweetNews confirming a plan that was mentioned in May. Last night, Production Weekly said over Twitter that Marvel Studios would begin shooting Thor in January. With Kenneth Branagh‘s tale of the Norse thunder god on schedule and finally about to go before cameras, hopefully we’ll soon see some production design, costumes and other materials. Meanwhile, here’s a rundown of what we know so far. Read More »

Jaimie Alexander and Colm Feore Join Thor

Two more actors have joined Thor. Jaimie Alexander (Kyle XY) and Colm Feore (Riddick, Face/Off) have joined the cast of Kenneth Branagh‘s Marvel comic book adaptation. Alexander will play Sif, who is skilled Asgardian warrior who can hold her own, and is a love interest of Thor. However, the identity of Feore’s character is being kept tightly under wraps, and THR claims “the studio isn’t even sending the actors the script — though it is known to be a villain.”

First Look: The Cast of 24 Season 7

24 Season 7

Filmz.ru got their hands on the first promotional image for The seventh season of 24. I assume this image was taken to publicize the season’s premiere, which was originally scheduled to take place on January 13th, 2008, but was postponed reportedly due to the writer’s strike. The new season is now set to premiere with a two hour prequel in fall before the regular season in January 2009. With CTU disbanded after the events of season 6, and with Jack Bauer on trial for his actions in the pursuit of justice, a major national security incident occurs when the firewall responsible for protecting America’s government computer infrastructure is breached. Click on the photo to enlarge.

The photo above features from left to right: FBI Agents Sean Hillinger (Rhys Coiro), Janis Gold (Janeane Garofalo), Larry Moss (Jeffrey Nordling), and Renee Walker (Annie Wersching) who is also in an “adversarial relationship with Jack Bauer”, SPOILER WARNING, Tony Almeida (Carlos Bernard), who was supposedly killed in a previous season, Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland), Bill Buchanan (James Morrison), Chloe O’Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub), First Gentleman Henry Taylor (Colm Feore), the show’s first female president Allison Taylor (Cherry Jones), and Chief of Staff Ethan Kanin (Bob Gunton).

I wasn’t a big fan of the last season of 24 as the show almost became a parody of itself. I’ll give the two hour premiere a chance, but if the commercial which aired late last year is any indication, I’m not sure I’ll continue on after that.

Casting Clint Eastwood’s The Changeling

The Changeling

I wrote briefly about Clint Eastwood’s upcoming film The Changeling, in yesterday’s column 55 Must See Movies of 2008. It looks like a few more actors have been cast in the project: Jeffrey Donovan, Colm Feore and John Malkovich.

A mother’s (Angelina Jolie) prayer for her kidnapped son to return home is answered, though it doesn’t take long for her to suspect the boy who comes back is not hers. The woman is thrown into an insane asylum for disagreeing with the LAPD. When it seems that her real son has been murdered by a child serial killer and the child returned admits to fraud, she takes her case to the city council and takes down the mayor, the police chief and several corrupt officers, concurrently sparking changes in the insanity legislation. Donovan will play a police captain, Feore the chief of police and Malkovich a reverend.

Eastwood has a great track record (if that wasn’t an obvious observation, I don’t know what is), and this sounds like his next hit. The Changeling is set to hit theaters on November 7th 2008.
