We're not quite sure what to make of 'Thor,' the Marvel Comic's hero that Kenneth Branagh is bringing to the big screen May 6. Is it camp? Serious? A little of both? Take a look at this clip, released Wednesday, that features Thor (Chris Hemsworth) just after he's fallen from Asgard to Earth, screaming at the heavens while a disbelieving Natalie Portman, Stellan Skarsgård and Kat Denning try to figure things out. Hammered indeed!
With time running out on post-production on 'Green Lantern' (which opens June 17), the folks at Warner Bros. are fine-tuning their CGI-enhanced characters, and one in particular -- Tomar-Re, a key member of the Green Lantern Corps -- needed a particularly enunciated voice. So who better than to pick than 'The King's Speech's' Geoffrey Rush. Rush-as-Tomar-Re will help train Green Lantern Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds) in the Martin Campbell-directed summer tentpole. [THR]
The 3D Juggernaut keep rolling along -- but now even low-budget horror filmmakers are getting in on the action. According to Variety, New Artists Alliance and Caliber Media Co. are teaming on the 3D thriller 'Static,' which will use a specialized camera rig for 3D filming on a limited budget. Milo Ventimiglia and Sarah Shahi have been cast as a young couple whose lives have been shattered by the loss of their child and who are further pushed to the edge when a young visitor shows up, bringing the supernatural with her. 'Static' will be the feature directorial debut of music video director Todd Levin. [Variety]
