Hot on the heels of Thor footage being shown at CinemaCon, Marvel Studios and Paramount have released the first clip from the film. It’s a minute-long scene that takes place immediately after Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is found on Earth by Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), Darcy (Kat Dennings) and their professor (Stellan Skarsgard). Some of this has been seen in trailers, so even if you’re trying not to see too much of the film, this clip isn’t terribly spoilerish.
What is quite spoilerish is the other half of this article, which concerns a character that makes a small appearance in the film. We’ve got details from CinemaCon, after the break. Read More »

Lars Von Trier created no small amount of controversy with his last film, Antichrist, which chronicled the breakdown of a relationship in explicit, mind-bending fashion. So he raised eyebrows when he pronounced ‘no more happy endings!’ for his next picture, Melancholia, which also expands his canvas from the destruction of a couple’s relations to the utter destruction of the Earth.
Melancholia stars Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kiefer Sutherland, Charlotte Rampling, John Hurt, Alexander Skarsgård, Stellan Skarsgård and Udo Kier, and explores the responses of two different women (played by Dunst and Gainsbourg) to the impending end of the world. And now the film, which is still being finished, will be distributed in the US by Magnolia. Read More »

Now we’ve got a lot more information, including basic details about the event that will open the film: “the world being crushed.” Read More »
