'Thor: The Dark World' Dominates Box Office

Marvel Marvel

As expected, "Thor: The Dark World" performed heroically at the box office this weekend, as the latest Marvel Studios superhero blockbuster earned a whopping $86.1 million according to Film.com.

Combined with the $240.3 million "Thor: The Dark World" has already taken in overseas, Chris Hemsworth and company are now sitting at a tidy $326.4 million worldwide in just ten days of release.

Needless to say, there wasn't a whole hell of a lot else going on at the box office this weekend, as "Thor: The Dark World" pretty much sucked the air out of the room. But for the full box office top ten, including figures for returning films "Ender's Game" and "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa," head to Film.com.

As our bleach blonde and gnarly mustachioed friend here so often coos, "Hulkamania is running wild, brother."

Indeed that does seem to be the case as Hulk Hogan (real name: Terry Bollea) has now revealed that a biopic film based on him is currently in the works.

Uh huh. With thirty-some-odd years in the pro wrestling-slash-entertainment biz under his big heavyweight title belt and gobs of highly publicized personal drama, the Hulkster's life story is totally ripe for a big screen revival. And he's got just the guy in mind to portray him, too.  Get More »

Separated at birth? Long-lost twins? Vague coincidence? It's all possible when actors look so alike they could be siblings.

Is that Zachary Quinto, the Chief Science Officer of "Star Trek Into Darkness," running from the horror of "Aftershock"? Ah, no, at second glance, that's actually Quinto's doppelganger, Eli Roth, the man who gave us "Cabin Fever" and shot Hitler full o' holes in "Inglourious Basterds."

Anyway, with "Aftershock" and the new "Trek" being released back-to-back, we figured this was the perfect time to match up our favorite Hollywood doubles as they compete for roles, attention and DNA. It's like looking into a mirror! Get More »

The 9 Most Jacked Dudes in Hollywood

Pain & Gain Paramount

Most of us understand that as we age, it's important to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. Go for a jog (or a "yog" if you're Ron Burgundy) once in a while. Maybe opt for a salad sometimes instead of a few slices of pizza. If you work at a desk, perhaps you make sure you walk around your office for five minutes every hour. Feel that burn.

Then there are others who take that notion to extreme lengths, who hear "maintain a healthy and active lifestyle" and think "lift enough weights every day of my life to tear a horse in half with my bare hands and have a laughing fit in its blood." Get More »

A Very Confused Mark Wahlberg Turned Down 'Star Trek'

Though offered a role in the 2009 smash hit space reboot, it turns out Marky Mark didn't want to be part of J.J. Abram's funky "Star Trek" bunch. Why? Well with all that Vulcan-y dialogue and wacky character names like Lieutenant Nyota Uhura, the script was just too blimey confusing for Mark Wahlberg.

During promotions for "Broken City," his latest cop-ster flick also featuring Russell Crowe with words simple enough to follow along at a table read, Wahlberg spoke with Total Film about the one that got away ... and hinted at his hopes of starring in Abrams' "Star Wars: Episode VII." Get More »
