Phase 2 properly kicks off Stateside tomorrow with the release of Iron Man 3, so that means it's time to start getting all lathered up about Thor: The Dark World, this year's other Marvel Studios sequel following an Avenger on his next solo adventure.
In order to ensure we remember what Chris Hemsworth looks like as Thor, Marvel has released a new image of the star in his redesigned Asgardian costume.
The very first trailer for this fall's Thor: The Dark World has galloped across the Rainbow Bridge to Migdard.
Listen, we here at IAR are suckers for any trailer where an Anthony Hopkins makes profound voiceover declarations, so we're biased, but we think the second of three Phase 2 solo sequels looks damn promising.
Remember how the God of Thunder vowed to return to Midgard in order to reunite with his human lover in Thor, then didn't even throw a "Yo, girl" her way in The Avengers. True, there were extenuating circumstances, but Thor didn't even text Jane Foster.
Well, Marvel Studios has released a pair of new official images from this year's Thor: The Dark World, and two of the big creative figures on the movie have discussed some story elements, confirming that Thor's going to be in the doghouse for avoiding Jane whilst saving the world.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is back!
The legendary action-star left Hollywood to become the Governor of California almost a decade ago and now finally returns to the big screen with The Last Stand, which opens in theaters on January 18th.
The former-Governator appeared in a minor role in his friend Sylvester Stallone’s The Expendables and The Expendables 2, respectively, but has not starred in a major movie since ‘2003s Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. However, the actor has stayed very busy since resigning from politics having shot the upcoming film The Tomb, also co-starring Stallone, and toying with the idea of returning to two of his most successful franchises with new installments of Conan the Barbarian, The Terminator, as well as Triplets, which is the proposed sequel to Twins co-starring Danny DeVito.
But first Arnold can bee seen doing what he does best … kicking ass in The Last Stand. The new film, which was helmed by South Korean director Jee-Woon Kim (I Saw the Devil), stars Schwarzenegger as the Sheriff of a Mexican boarder town who must defend his community from a dangerous drug cartel leader (Eduardo Noriega) on the run from the FBI and trying to escape to Mexico. In addition to Schwarzenegger, the film also boasts an impressive cast of supporting actors including Johnny Knoxville (The Dukes of Hazzard), Rodrigo Santoro (There Be Dragons), Jaimie Alexander (Thor: The Dark World), Luis Guzman (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island), Zach Gilford (Answers to Nothing), Peter Stormare (Dylan Dog: Dead of Night), Harry Dean Stanton (The Avengers), Genesis Rodriguez (Casa di Mi Padre), and Academy Award-winner Forest Whitaker (A Dark Truth).
I recently had the pleasure of attending a press conference for The Last Stand, along with several other members of the press, and had a chance to hear what Arnold Schwarzenegger had to say about his new film, his big screen comeback, leaving politics behind, doing action scenes at his age, working with director Jee-Woon Kim, the Newtown tragedy, and his advice to Congress.
Opening in theaters on January 18th is the new action film The Last Stand starring former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, which marks his first leading role in a movie since Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. The film was helmed by South Korean director Kim Ji-woon (I Saw the Devil) and in addition to Schwarzenegger also stars Johnny Knoxville (The Dukes of Hazzard), Rodrigo Santoro (There Be Dragons), Jaimie Alexander (Thor: The Dark World), Zach Gilford (Answers to Nothing), Genesis Rodriguez (Casa de Mi Padre), Luis Guzman (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island), Peter Stormare (Dylan Dog: Dead of Night), Harry Dean Stanton (The Avengers), and Academy Award-winner Forest Whitaker (A Dark Truth).
IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had the pleasure of sitting down with the beautiful Jaimie Alexander to talk about her work on The Last Stand. The talented actress discussed her new movie, meeting Arnold Schwarzenegger for the first time, shooting guns with The Terminator, what he's like on set, and working with a director who needs a translator.
Synopsis: After leaving his LAPD narcotics post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with remorse and regret, Sheriff Ray Owens moved out of Los Angeles and settled into a life fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction. But that peaceful existence is shattered when Gabriel Cortez, the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the western hemisphere, makes a deadly yet spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy. With the help of a fierce band of lawless mercenaries led by the icy Burrell, Cortez begins racing towards the US-Mexico border at 250 mph in a specially-outfitted Corvette ZR1 with a hostage in tow.
Scheduled to open in theaters on November 8th is the highly anticipated sequel to Thor entitled Thor: The Dark World, which will mark the second film released in Marvel Studios' Phase Two. The new installment was directed by Alan Taylor (Kill The Poor) and based on a screenplay by Captain America: The First Avenger scribes Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, and popular Marvel Comics writer Christopher Yost. The sequel features returning cast members Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Natalie Portman (Jane Foster), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Stellan Skarsgard (Dr, Erik Selvig), Idris Elba (Heimdall), Kat Dennings (Darcy Lewis), Ray Stevenson (Volstagg), Tadanobu Asano (Hogun), Jaimie Alexander (Sif), Rene Russo (Frigga), and Anthony Hopkins (Odin), as well as new cast members Christopher Eccleston (G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (The Thing), and Zachary Levi (Tangled).
