  1. Kenneth Branagh Ranks the Disney Princesses, Forgets Some Big Ones

    Disney's got a large canon under their belt, so it goes without saying that different people are going to be carrying around differing opinions on what films and characters top the rest. But I'mma go ahead and call shenanigans on Kenneth Branagh's ranking of the Disney princesses.

  2. Here’s the Latest Sneak Peek Of Disney’s Live-Action Cinderella

    In case you were wondering if those glass shoes are comfortable.

    Not to be outdone by the recent midnight that swapped out 2014 for 2015, Cinderella's latest trailer makes the bold claim that their midnight changes everything—including the goose who might be driving you home, evidently. And... oh, hey, I guess maybe the uncomfortably tiny waist on Cinderella's dress wasn't a photoshop job after all?

  10. Robb Stark to Play Prince Charming in Disney’s Live-Action Cinderella?

    Oh My Stars and Garters

    From Game of Thrones' King in the North to (possibly) Prince Charming. Richard Madden might have found his niche in handsome royalty. I'm not complaining.

    She Turned Me Into a Newt!

    Think the Beast will actually be a Beast or will they pull a CW and scar a male model?

  13. Kenneth Branagh May Have the Grimm Task of Directing Disney’s Live-Action Cinderella

    In Which We Make A Terrible Pun

    Last we heard about Disney's live-action version of Cinderella director Mark Romanek was out because Disney didn't take too kindly to the dark (read: Actually fairy tale-esque) ending he wanted. Now Vulture reports that Kenneth Branagh might jump in instead. But Vulture, tell me what I really want to know: Is Cate Blanchett still on board as the evil stepmother?

  14. Jaimie Alexander On Sif’s Role, Fandral, & The Comic Look Of Thor: The Dark World

    My Spidey Sense Is Tingling

    Jaimie Alexander's work is officially over on Thor: The Dark World. That means we get to hear as much as she can tell about what Sif will be up to in the film. See what the actress had to say about the Sif/Thor relationship, the new director, and how the look of the film is very much like a comic.

  15. 8 of the Goofiest Things From the Olympics Opening Ceremony

    It Came From Outer Space

    We live in a world full of spectacle. Within that world, there's no international spectacle (insert jazz hands) that quite matches the opening ceremony of the Olympics. Yes, it's grand, and magnificent, and painstakingly planned down to every detail. It also has a tendency to be goofy and over-the-top. We felt things, and we laughed, and sometimes we yawned. We sat down to watch the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics last night, and we've compiled some of the best--and most ludicrous--moments.

  17. Chuck’s Zachary Levi Likely To Take Over The Role Of Fandral In Thor 2

    My Spidey Sense Is Tingling

    Well this is certainly news relative to our interests. It seems Marvel Studios have to recast the role of Fandral (one of the Warriors Three) in the Thor sequel. And the person most likely to get the job? None other than NBC's Chuck, Zachary Levi. Cool news for Chuck fans, sad news for fans of Once Upon A Time's Prince Charming, Josh Dallas, who previously held the role. Did I just blow your mind?

  18. Patty Jenkins Directing Thor 2, Will Become Marvel Studios’ First Female Director

    Excelsior!

    After a bit of speculation, Marvel Studios has made it official: Patty Jenkins has been confirmed to be the director of Thor 2, making her the first woman to direct a movie for the studio. Jenkins has a powerful body of work already, having directed the Aileen Wuornos docudrama Monster, which won Charlize Theron an Oscar. However, this will be the first big-budget outing for Jenkins, making this a big step for female directors.

  19. Joss Whedon Directed the Secret Thor Scene

    Spoilery

    By now, you've probably heard about the additional scene that appears after the credits of Thor. While we won't tell you what happens in that scene, we will divulge a couple of things. Stellan Skarsgård is in it, playing Erik Selvig. So is Samuel L. Jackson, playing Nick Fury. However, the director of that scene was not Thor director Kenneth Branagh -- it was Joss Whedon, who is directing The Avengers. Slightly spoilery information (for Thor only) after the jump.

  20. Get Hammered!: A Review of ‘Thor’

    Review

    It's the beginning of summer 2011, and that can only mean one thing. Marvel is racing to get the public up to speed before their mega-picture The Avengers hits theaters next year, and they're determined to get us there whether we feel like it or not. One can only marvel (or DC) at the rate with which these installments are being pushed out, and try to hope for the best. There are origin stories to spool out, seeds to be planted, a host of other metaphors to be abused, all in the name of brand reproduction. There is also a slowly building meta story involving S.H.I.E.L.D. and Samuel L. Jackson being fed in low-calorie nibblets at the tail end of every one of these blockbusters. The very thought of how many episodes of high-finish CG, stunt casting choices, and clunky dialogue one would have to endure just to get to the supposed payoff of The Avengers movie was, and is, exhausting. So it's a pleasant surprise that THOR is both watchable, and definitively enjoyable.
