'Thor: The Dark World' Trailer: Thereeee's Loki

The first teaser trailer for "Thor: The Dark World" gave us but a split second of Loki (Tom Hiddleston) getting a little visit from his boy wonder brother Thor (Chris Hemsworth), but today Marvel has unleashed the first full trailer for the second "Thor" installment, and it looks like the Asgardian Bros. will be enjoying quite a reunion indeed as they show down with an enemy which threatens to tear apart "the very fabric of reality." Um, yikes? Get More »

'Mandela' Trailer: Meet the Freedom Fighter

It usually takes more than a week for a full-on trailer to follow up a film's teaser vid, but since yesterday was the 95th birthday of the unconquerable Nelson Mandela himself, The Weinstein Company decided to make an exception. And what a celebration it was.

In the biopic, Idris Elba stars as Nelson Mandela, the South African revolutionary who stood up against an oppressive, divisive government and spent 27 years in prison before being released and later chosen as the nation's first democratically-elected president. Get More »

'Mandela' Teaser: It's Been a 'Long Walk' for South Africa's Hero

Man, oh man, we're calling it now: Justin Chadwick's Nelson Mandela biopic, "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom," is just going to own us all.

The first teaser trailer for The Weinstein Company's latest gut-wrencher is in, and as simple and obscure as it is — Idris Elba as the aging South African civil rights hero is shown walking along an open meadow pathway before a group of children start prancing around him — it's also effective at bringing on all the feels.

PHOTOS: This Is 40 and Effing Hot

Judd Apatow's new comedy, "This Is 40," presents the many challenges that come with middle age, such as being attractive, having amusing and dedicated friends and wallowing in complete financial stability.

It's not all mundane tedium, though — sometimes you also just go crazy and get high in hotel rooms and caress Megan Fox's pert, twentysomething breasts.

Let's face it — something about being rich and famous kind of slows down the aging process that us regular schmoes have to contend with. Here are a few celebrity types who make 40 look like the new 25.

In Awesome, Open-Minded News: Idris Elba Could Be the Next James Bond

Every now and then Hollywood has a good idea, and we gotta say, this is one of the best we've heard in a while. Daniel Craig is killing it as James Bond—and there's even chatter that he might be the new quintessential 007 (sorry Sean Connery) — but he's going to have to hang up the tuxedo someday… which makes us wonder who could possibly take his place?

Enter Idris Elba. That's right—the guy from "The Wire." According to Total Film, Elba has already met with producer Barbara Broccoli (no, we didn't make that name up) to discuss the possibility. Obviously, this has us very excited for many reasons, not the least of which is that Elba is a powerful thesp we'd love to see more of, but also because he would be the first black Bond. It's about time. Get More »

In Space No One Can See These 4 'Prometheus' Clips

Noomi Rapace in "Prometheus"

Ridley Scott defined sci-fi terror with 1979's "Alien," so it's only fitting that the director would redefine the genre with "Prometheus," a prequel that takes many detours into rabbit holes of philosophical pondering.

What are they pondering, exactly? Only the nature and purpose of mankind's origin, that's all. No biggie. Oh, and there's monsters! This epic stars Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace, Idris Elba and the amazing Michael Fassbender as a robot to be reckoned with.

12 Hot Gods Looking Hot

According to Zeus (or at least the version played by Liam Neeson), godhood is a bit of a bummer. You have to be responsible for all creation, immortality is depressing, and being worshipped is exhausting. Apparently, all gods really want is to be human.

Well, we’re not buying it. Nowhere in "Wrath of the Titans" do any gods offer to give up eternal youth, superpowers, the sprawling temple in the clouds or their unworldly good looks. Instead, they seem riddled with insecurity, determined to strike down any man, woman, or child who is too good looking. (Don’t have a good hair day around the gods. You might find yourself sacrificed to a Kraken.)

We’ll spend our weekend worshipping at "Wrath of the Titans," and the rest of our days admiring these 12 gorgeous immortals. Devotion has never been so easy.

Hunky acting god (and recent Golden Globe-winner) Idris Elba has been making quick work of becoming the genre actor du jour, with roles in big pics like the "Ghost Rider" sequel, "Thor" and this summer's sci-fi blockbuster "Prometheus," but now he's getting back to reality with a biopic of one of the 20th century's most important political figures.

In a video interview with HipHollywood, the 39-year-old Brit said he plans to play anti-apartheid leader and former President of South Africa Nelson Mandela in "Long Walk To Freedom," a story spanning the tumultuous years before his celebrated release from prison in 1990. Get More »
