Tom Hiddleston‘s growing legion of fans should really sink their teeth into Jim Jarmusch‘s vampire tale Only Lovers Left Alive. This one might not have the roaring energy of Thor or The Avengers, but it does pair Hiddleston with Tilda Swinton, with the two playing on and off again lovers who have hundreds of years of baggage between them.
The clips we’ve seen from the film were good, but this first trailer is so much better. It’s so careful and so arch, but I just love Hiddleston’s pitch-perfect take on the exaggerated uber-cool rocker, and Tilda Swinton’s scenes as a blood junkie are lovely. It’s almost like this was pre-conceived as Jarmusch’s strange tribute to Lou Reed. (Jarmusch explained the lead characters as “two exceptional outsiders who, given their unusual circumstances, have a vast overview of human and natural history, including stunning achievements and tragic and brutal failures.”) Sometimes, timing can be sadly perfect.

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 »
While Kenneth Branagh struggled to define a world in the original Thor, Alan Taylor has the gift of audience familiarly with its sequel Thor: The Dark World. Branagh’s original film took a long time to find its footing and never quite explored how great the characters of Thor and Loki could be. That second issue was ironed out in The Avengers.
So Thor: The Dark World hits the ground running with fully realized, charismatic and confident portrayals of all the characters involved. It’s defined by Thor being an ultimate hero and Loki being a mischievous villain. That, coupled with plenty of Avengers-size action, laugh-out-loud humor and Marvel Cinematic Universe easter eggs help make Thor: The Dark World one of the best Marvel films to date. Read More »

One of the hottest actors in the industry could be headed toward one of the coldest places on the planet. Benedict Cumberbatch is being eyed to star as George Mallory in Doug Liman‘s Everest, with Joel Kinnaman, James McAvoy, Tom Hiddleston, Henry Cavill, Luke Evans, Dan Stevens, Matthew Goode, and Jim Sturgess also in the mix.
If you’re confused because you thought Jason Clarke had already replaced Christian Bale in that movie, you’re thinking of the other Everest, by Baltasar Kormakur. That one has suffered a few setbacks but is now hoping to shoot this fall, with Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, and Jake Gyllenhaal in addition to Clarke. Get the latest on both movies after the jump.

Audiences like Tom Hiddleston as Loki. The character did well in Thor, but The Avengers really turned him into a fan-favorite. It was that snarl, the willingness to be beaten like a rag doll by the Hulk, and the phrase “mewling quim” that set hearts a-flutter. Loki is a big part of Thor: The Dark World, to the point where reshoots added more of the character after shooting originally ended. But after that film opens this November, we won’t see much of Loki for a while.
Fans aren’t too happy about his potential leave-taking of the screen, and one group is petitioning Marvel Studios for a standalone film featuring the character. Read More »
Loki is taking over for Khan in Guillermo del Toro‘s latest. Last week, Benedict Cumberbatch dropped out of del Toro’s upcoming haunted house film Crimson Peak for one of many possible reasons.

It was also revealed that Legendary will co-finance the film with Universal. Read More »
