Chris Hemsworth worked the rugged look in every possible way this year: outdoors guy, Norse god, huntsman and, now, homemade soldier. His rippling muscles and blue eyes alone prove there's something in the Aussie water.
This week he's trading in his mighty "Thor" hammer for an assault rifle in "Red Dawn," keeping America safe from invading communist forces.
Sure, Chris' younger brother Liam enjoyed some time in the spotlight this year with '"The Hunger Games," but between "Snow White and the Huntsman," "The Cabin in the Woods," "The Avengers" and now "Red Dawn," the elder Hemsworth is the only one we want to cuddle with out in the wilderness.
See for yourself with Chris' Hot People Looking Hot gallery. Trust us, you'll forget all about the threat of the North Korean army after going through these pics.
This week: Joss Whedon reinvigorates the horror genre with the shockingly clever "The Cabin in the Woods," starring a pre-Thor Chris Hemsworth.
Also new this week is the sweet senior comedy "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," the music documentary "Katy Perry: Part of Me" and the Blu-ray collection "Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures." Get More »
If you heard the distant booming of cannons over the weekend, don't worry, that's just Hollywood announcing that another batch of box office challengers has been eliminated by the unstoppable force known as "The Hunger Games."
Yes, according to Hollywood.com, "The Hunger Games" has won the box office title for the fourth weekend in a row, earning $21.5 million to bring its total to a whopping $337 million. The last film to top the box office four weekends in a row was "Avatar," which took the top spot seven times.
It wasn't all bad news for the rest of the movie business, as "The Three Stooges" and "The Cabin in the Woods" both had solid debuts, earning $17.1 and $14.8 million respectively. For a look at the full box office chart, including returning films "Titanic 3D" and "American Reunion," head to Hollywood.com.
Because he's a generous guy, Joss Whedon is giving us another movie besides "The Avengers" this year. This week we're getting "The Cabin in the Woods," Whedon's take, with cowriter-director Drew Goddard, on the title horror subgenre that subverts expectations ... and then some.
Before you take a trip down the rabbit hole of this terror/sci-fi hybrid, we suggest boning up on the essentials, where the standards were set. Seclusion + nature - good sense ÷ gore = all the protagonists of these films. Get More »
Once upon a time, bad jokes would come and go in the blink of an eye. Then we got Photoshop, and bad jokes could live on, in full-color glory, forever and ever and ever.
In honor of producer Joss Whedon's phenomenal new horror/fantasy/whatever movie "Cabin in the Woods" and our ridiculous sense of humor, please enjoy this exclusive poster for the smash hit... "Kevins in the Woods."
The buzz around "The Cabin in the Woods" is deafening, and Jesse Williams is in the middle of the beehive.
The former teacher, model and "Grey's Anatomy" hot doc is part of the ensemble headed off to the "Woods" cooked up by cowriter Joss Whedon and writer-director Drew Goddard. His character Holden is a smart cookie who can also kick some butt, which comes in handy when he and his friends run into some serious trouble during a weekend getaway. To know more is the spoil the fun, so don't read any reviews -- just head for the "Cabin," and get to know a little bit more about Williams first. Get More »
South by Southwest starts on March 9, and Sundance had better watch its back.
Although Park City's film festival still reigns supreme as America's preeminent independent film event, Austin's SXSW is running a close second. The reason? It's cooler. And we're not talking the temperature. Get More »
Australian megahunk movie stars aren't exactly a new thing at the multiplex. The land of koalas and Marmite has been steadily infiltrating our big screens since Mad Max growled about seeing a vehicle that could haul that tanker. We've enjoyed them all as they've come by: Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman, Eric Bana, Heath Ledger ... and now, Chris and Liam Hemsworth.
And boy, do those two have a year ahead of them. Forget Mayan predictions and the apocalypse. 2012 promises to be the year of the Hemsworth. (We haven't ruled out that they might factor into the end of the world. Two handsome Aussie actors in one genetic strain? How is that possible?) Get More »
Sam Raimi has been hard at work putting together the pieces for his long-awaited "Evil Dead" remake, but he might want to think twice, because if the new trailer for "The Cabin in the Woods" is any indication, it looks like Joss Whedon has already done his work for him.
And that's not necessarily a bad thing.
Produced by Whedon and featuring a script he co-wrote with "Cloverfield" writer Drew Goddard (who also directs), "The Cabin in the Woods" makes no secret about he debt it owes Raimi's 1981 cult classic "The Evil Dead." In fact, for the first half of the trailer, "The Cabin in the Woods" seems like a faithfully spooky remake of "The Evil Dead," with "Thor" star Chris Hemsworth stepping into Bruce Campbell's iconic shoes as the lead character.
