I really like movies. As a recreational reader of NextMovie, you probably really like movies as well. Most people we both know probably really like movies, too.
I point all this out to say that no one either of us have ever met likes movies more than the guy in the above video, who dresses as Thor and travels for fun to AMC movie theaters with a camera crew following, which subsequently films him giving a brief review of a movie he's just scene using his best Chris Hemsworthian Thor impersonation. (Embedded is his review of "Man of Steel," which, good news Zack Snyder — he gives "five lightning strikes out of five"!) Get More »
This week: The long-delayed "Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One — Avengers Assembled" box set with "Marvel's The Avengers," "Thor," "Captain America: The First Avenger," "Iron Man," "Iron Man 2" and "The Incredible Hulk" plus geek-worthy collectibles is finally here.
Changing appearances for the sake of entertainment is nothing new in Hollywood; it's all part of the gig. But when professional heartthrob Ryan Gosling tweaks his look, disgruntled fans are going to have something to say about it.
In "The Place Beyond the Pines," Gosling sports a bleach-blond 'do for his role as a motorcycle racer-turned-bank robber. As photos started surfacing during the film's production, people were wondering what the heck was going on with his hair. Serious drama. Get More »
The hammer was "forged from a collapsing star" according to comic book legend, which Tyson claims means it clocks in at the equivalent rate of about "300 billion elephants." So that's 4.5 quadrillion pounds, if you're counting with your hands. In which case, stop, and go back to using "billions of elephants" as your measurement unit of choice.
So, yeah, Thor will definitely want to check that baby in baggage claim next time he boards a flight. (And, no, no one is going to steal it. It weighs 300 billion elephants, for the Gods's sake!)
Actress Jaimie Alexander, who played the fierce swordswoman Sif in last year's hit film "Thor," is scheduled to leave the hospital today after sustaining what the actress herself called a "horrible injury" while filming a scene for the sequel, "Thor: The Dark World," over the weekend.
This Friday will kick off the opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, and though our old Revolutionary War adversaries might be our allies now, that doesn't mean the U.S. of frickin' A. isn't ready to bring the thunder.
Using our powers of make-believe and fantasy, we've assembled athletic champions from the entirety of movie history to give us a clear advantage towards the race for Olympic glory in every sport of the XXX Olympiad. Get More »
If there was one victor among the movies paneling at San Diego Comic-Con this year, it'd have to be … Marvel. Or was it "Man of Steel"? Or maybe "The Hobbit"?
Another Con's in the can, and we've emerged with new intel on a handful of high-profile mega-movies. There weren't necessarily any groundbreaking casting announcements this year, but first footage from movies like the new Superman flick, "Oz: The Great and Powerful," "Pacific Rim" and "Elysium" had fans and bloggers buzzing big time.
Check out the biggest movie scoops below. What we should add, #16: Getting in line at 7 a.m. does not guarantee you entry into the con's marquee venue (Hall H). Not even for a 6 p.m. panel. And yep, we learned that the hard way. – By Bryan Enk and Kevin Polowy
Girlfriends. Gal pals. Sidekicks. Whatever you call them, superheroes just wouldn't be able to rise to their full powers without a love interest — and usually a healthy dose of some smoldering on-screen sexuality.
So whether it's the famous upside down kiss between Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man and girlfriend Kirsten Dunst or Gwyneth Paltrow's slinky skirts and witty banter with Iron Man Robert Downey, Jr., the chemistry between a superhero and his civilian paramour is usually an integral part of the story.

This weekend, Will Smith and his expensive sunglasses are taking you back in time. Back to the 1960s, for the action of "Men in Black III" and back to the late 1990s, which is when you last thought about "Men in Black."
There's been much jawing among we fanboys about the awesome looking aliens that celebrated special effects designer Rick Baker has created – and, man, they are really great fun.
But for me, the "MIB" are all about the whacked-out gadgets. Indeed, the most famous of 'em all makes our list of 9 nifty gadgets most coveted on Planet Fanboy, which, as luck would have it, happen to be written below. Get More »
Two "Iron Man" movies, plus two interpretations of "The Hulk," plus "Thor" and "Captain America: The First Avenger" have led up to one of the most anticipated -- and teased -- superhero epics in cinematic history: "The Avengers."
Director Joss Whedon has miraculously melded together the different mythologies of these characters for a team-up that gives each character his or her due, yet still feels cohesive: a story about defeating Thor's half-brother Loki before he obliterates the Earth, now that he's gained access to the unlimited power of the Cosmic Cube, or Tesseract.
Fans worried about the end result of all of these heroes mixed together on-screen can officially breathe easy because "The Avengers" delivers on all levels, has unexpected bits of humor and is one of the choicest comic-book movies of all time. If you liked some or all of the individual superhero films that led up to "The Avengers," know that Whedon blows them all to Asgard. Yes, believers, it is truly that Marvel-ous. Get More »
