What's with the name?

Allow us to explain.

Chris Hemsworth

the internet is serious business

Thor, Gale, Meryl Streep, and Tom Hanks Star In the Epic, The Groundbreaking… Bitman Begins

Jimmy Kimmel, as is his wont, took to his late night show to have some post-Oscar fun. This year he enlisted the help of celebrities to dramatize that most enduring, most highbrow of subjects: The Internet meme. There’s David After Dentist (starring Joseph Gordon Levitt), Ain’t nobody got time for that (with Queen Latifah), and …I don’t want to ruin it, but Gary Oldman is there.

But Bitman Begins is our favorite, because superheroes. Hit the jump for a behind-the-scenes video in which Meryl Streep talks working with the Hemsworth brothers.

Update: YouTube appears to be giving some people trouble. Sorry if you’re affected. Hopefully everything will be back to normal soon.

Things We Saw Today: Stan Lee Trying to Separate Thor and the Hulk

Review

Lightning, Thunderclouds, Thor 2

These are dark times. Dark and gritty times. Or so it would seem from our choices at the box office, where trends kicked up (but hardly established) by the Nolanverse Batman films continue to cloud every superhero franchise for miles around. This is a land where wonderment is traded for plot expedience, story pacing replaced by gorgeous, if rampant, CGI. Thor: The Dark World is no exception, being as dark as its title suggests. Fun to watch, but ultimately only slightly more substantial than its predecessor, T:TDW suffers from being the middle chapter of its series, if not a smaller piece in the giant puzzle that is the MCU. Its visual clout may be mighty, but its story lacks punch.

Engage at your peril, for through this ethereal portal lie SPOILERS.

A New Thor: The Dark World Trailer Has Arrived From Asgard (Okay, From YouTube)

The new trailer for Thor: The Dark World is packed with action, magical prison cells, Idris Elba, Frigga battling the Dark Elf Malekith, and the expected number of threatening voice overs. Based on descriptions we heard last month it seems to be the same trailer that aired at Comic-Con, but for those of us who weren’t there it’s certainly worth a watch. The new trailer provides more insight into the battles and major conflict of the movie, while the last trailer focused a bit more on the state of Thor and Jane Foster’s relationship, and, of course, Loki’s hair. Thor: The Dark World is set to release on November 8th of this year.

Our Favorite Nerd Celebrities Are Wearing Lisa Frank

Well, sort of. We found a new tumblr you might want to follow. It’s called Funky Fresh in Lisa Frank. The creator has taken celebrity images and photoshopped them so it looks as if said celebrity is wearing Lisa Frank merchandise. Although I wouldn’t be surprised to see folks like David Tennant, Robert Downey Jr. or Kit Harrington sporting the looks voluntarily. Check out the gallery and see who else got the colorfully cute treatment!
