A first official look of Chris Hemsworth suited up in the Thor armor has surfaced thanks to Yahoo! Movies. Looks like they are keeping true to the comic book design while still grounding it to the real world and not so animated. This is surprisingly the first picture we’ve seen from the shooting of Thor since it has been shooting for quite a while. You can see the Lightening God in action next year, May 6, 2011 with Natalie Portman and Sir Anthony Hopkins as well.
With Marvel Studio’s The Avengers film directed by Joss Whedon already slated for May, 4, 2012 to kick off the Summer movie experience and Sony Picture’s Spider-Man Reboot directed by Marc Webb coming out July 3, 2012, two more big names have dropped this week coming out for the 2012 Summer film season. First off, with the announcement of upcoming Warner Bros. IMAX films, Christopher Nolan’s Batman 3 was announced for 2012, but now there is an official date of July 20, 2012! Along with that big bombshell, G.I. Joe 2, which I could care less about,has a release expectation of Summer of 2012 thanks to interview with Lorenzo di Bonaventura at the MTV Movie Blog. What more can we ask for in terms of big Summer blockbusters other than asking Michael Bay for Transformers 4 a year after TF3? Or perhaps we shouldn’t……Wishfully Kick-Ass 2, but only in a perfect world.
AMC announced recently that the season four of the critically acclaimed show, Mad Men, would start back up on July 25! This show is incredible, season three ended amazingly well, and if you have’t seen this show, WATCH IT! This show cannot be stopped and has won the Golden Globe for best drama series on television three years in a row, which has never been done before. Airing Sunday nights at 10PM (ET/PT) will return probably better than ever and hopefully not disappoint. Excited? Well you should be!
FINALLY! After 10 years of hopelessly waiting and distraught whether or not this game would be released, IT IS HERE! Well not yet anyways, but it is coming soon! Marvel announced today and it was revealed last week at Capcom’s annual Captivate event in Hawaii, the unveiling of Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds. The teaser shows what is in store for some of the fighting animation and characters. Capcom has taken a little taste out of Street Figthter IV and mixed it in with the MvC style as well. I’m a little worried about the announcement of around only 30 characters when MvC2 had 56 playable characters. They say that there will definitely be brand new characters while still throwing in some classic characters as well; one of mine being Morrigan. The game will be released on the Playstation 3 and XBox 360, but no official release date yet.
“If I was scared of what the fans were thinking or had any trepadition at all about doing this, it wouldn’t have gotten made,” says Niitsuma. “As a creator, I have confidence in what I create and I believe that what I make is something that the fans will enjoy. As long as I keep that in mind, I’m pretty sure this is something that the fans will enjoy.”

Patrick Jean over at the studio One More Production created this fun little short, Pixels, that is visually stimulating and a great throwback to great video game classics. As a giant swarm of pixels draw near, more and more video game characters start attacking New York City. From Donkey Kong to Tetris, this short holds nothing back and brings visual effects to great heights on such a little film. I don’t think Steve Wiebe has a chance. Wait no further and go watch this short after the jump!

A funny and weird look into the world of South Park if it were created into a live action show. This is just some funny commercial created but for Dutch Comedy Central. The voice overs are bad, but it gets the point across in the South Park way.
On April 9, 2010 at 2:15pm, I stepped into my local movie theater to culminate my goal of watching 365 movies I have never seen before within the time frame of an entire year. I have accomplished my goal in 328 days from when I first started on May 17, 2009. It’s been a pretty ridiculous long trip throughout cinema as I have seen many films of every genre that were pretty amazing, great fun, timeless classics, and horribly bad. I wanted to do this fun journey through film as a way to build up my film “palette.” I had this growing love of film and film news, but realized I have not seen very many older movies and needed to start to watch more and more to at least make it plausible that I know what I’m talking about. Through suggestions and just sitting down to an open mind, I welcomed most movies that came my way and ultimately finished my goal.
I can just say if you really don’t believe me that I have never seen any of these movies than you can just believe that, but I don’t know who would really lie about something like that for the sake of saying never seeing certain movies.
Continue reading after the jump to see what films I watched and the resulting conclusions of my goal.
Lin Yu Chun, a 23-year old contestant on Taiwan’s version of America’s Got Talent called “Super Star Avenue,” has been dubbed the Chinese Susan Boyle. Looking at him, like Boyle, you would not even believe what can come out of this little guy, even the host seems skeptical. It is pretty remarkably ridiculous how well this is sung, although I cannot say that I know anything about singing or tonal differences, but I’d have to say this is pretty damn good. In this video he sing’s Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You.” Watch this video after the jump and be amazed.
