Kat Dennings takes a break from TV with the film To Write Love On Her Arms, which is inspired by the true story of a young woman who founded a charity group after her own battle with addiction and depression. Just as the actual charity, also called To Write Love on Her Arms, is based around outreach through non-traditional means such as music festivals and social networking, the film sees Dennings as a young woman who escapes some of her problems through music — though as the trailer indicates, that’s not necessarily a totally safe haven. The film looks like a blend of realism, fantasy, and light message delivery; watch the To Write Love on Her Arms trailer below.

I don’t know about you, but I’m getting pretty excited to see Thor: The Dark World. Where I felt the first Thor was just okay, after the character’s emergence in The Avengers, along with the blossoming of his evil brother Loki, the prospect of seeing them both on the big screen again is quite exciting. And it’s coming soon. Thor: The Dark World, directed by Alan Taylor, opens November 8.
Today, a whole bunch of brand new still images only add to that excitement. In them, you get a much closer look at Christopher Eccleston‘s bad guy Malekith the Accursed, some sweeping scenery and a few new glimpses of Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Rene Russo, Natalie Portman, Kat Dennings, Jaimie Alexander and more to boot. Check them out below. Read More »
Back in 2010, Marvel hired artist Olly Moss to make a special poster for the cast and crew of Thor. The resulting image, never available for public purchase, blended a bunch of iconic imagery from the film into the outline of Mjolnir. Last year Moss was asked to do similar work for the sequel, Thor: The Dark World. Now that the first trailer has debuted, he has debuted the finished product to the public.
As with work for most sequels, Moss was even more ambitious this time around. He settled on one main image, but for each principal cast member Moss drew custom versions of their character and inserted them into their own poster. Below, see a selection of the images. Read More »

Marvel’s latest film Thor won’t hit theaters in the US until May 6th, but it is gearing up to be released in the UK and other international territories on April 27th. So you can expect to see a flood of international reviews this coming week. But you won’t have to wait a couple weeks to learn what I thought of the movie, as I was part of a handful of domestic critics that screened the movie this week. We had the opportunity to screen a final print of the film, in full 3D. After the jump you will find a video blog reaction I recorded immediately following the screening with Frosty from Collider, as well as a couple notes.

Apparently today is trailer Thursday as several brand new trailers have made their way online. The next one, and probably not the last, is Daydream Nation, an indie-rock influenced teen drama, described by Variety as “Juno as reimagined by David Lynch, or a funnier, sunnier Donnie Darko.” It stars Kat Dennings (Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, Thor) as the new girl in town who ends up falling for one of her teachers, played by Josh Lucas (A Beautiful Mind, Poseidon). Written and directed by Michael Goldbach, the film is scheduled for a release in New York and Los Angeles on May 6 followed by a release on DVD and Blu-ray May 17. We ran a trailer for the film almost a year ago but now that it’s actually coming out, we figured you might like to see the official one. Read More »
