Thor: The Dark World
While "Thor" was initially perceived as potentially the goofiest possibility in the Marvel universe, the studio quickly made it clear that theirs was a grounded hero, with mythological family issues and galactic romance for an Earthbound woman. And when titling the sequel, "Thor: The Dark World," it's clear that things are going to get both bigger and badder with the second standalone movie. But how does it play out?

We really don't get racing at all. Watching a bunch of cars drive around a track for hours on end? Not really our bag, and Universal knows that if they want the '70s-set, racing drama "Rush" to reach an audience beyond Sunday afternoon couch potatoes, they're gonna have to sell this thing. So why not introduce Chris Hemworth's lead character James Hunt like smoldering, sexy, risk-taking hunk? And that's exactly what they do.

Exclusive: Andrew Kevin Walker Rewriting ‘Dragon Tattoo’ Sequel; David Fincher's ‘20,000 Leagues’ Is Dead

With two major blockbuster flops in two years (“John Carter,” “The Lone Ranger”), the conventional wisdom follows that Disney is probably not green-lighting any major, untested would-be franchises anytime soon (even the the trio behind “The Pirates of The Caribbean” films, Bruckheimer, Depp and Verbinski proved nothing’s a sure thing). And so eyes immediately turned to David Fincher’s ambitious $200 million-plus, 3D tentpole adaptation of “20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.” Given the recent announcement that Fincher would be directing the thriller “Gone Girl” with Ben Affleck this fall, we assumed the Jules Verne project had been scrapped, for the simple reason that Disney is not going to bankroll a potentially risky project.

Ron Howard hasn't just been sitting around narrating the upcoming episodes of "Arrested Development." The director has putting the details on his next feature effort, the true story racing saga "Rush," and while a movie about gears and waving flags might seem like a drag on paper, he's chose a helluva tale to spin on the big screen. And a new trailer is here to give the dudes from "Fast & Furious" a serious run for their nitro.

Thor 2, Thor: The Dark World
Starting with a preview in the Phase One boxset, Marvel has been efficiently building up to the first trailer for "Thor: The Dark World" with a poster and fresh stills in the last few days. And now it's officially here (after partially leaking late last night), and yes, it's bringing the epic.

Michael Mann has never been the most prolific filmmaker, but it’s rare during the course of his career that he’s taken any more than three years between films. We assume that it is largely down to the ill-fated HBO show “Luck” that Mann hasn’t had a film in cinemas since “Public Enemies” in 2009, but it looks like we won’t be waiting too much longer with his currently untitled cyber theft thriller set to go in front of cameras in China next month.

With the "Iron Man 3" campaign pretty much wrapped as the sequel opens this week internationally, Marvel is now putting their marketing efforts into "Thor: The Dark World," which isn't due in theaters for another seven months. But hey, there's no time like the present.

You can bet that with "Iron Man 3" opening in just a couple of weeks, Marvel isn't going to miss a hot second to promote their other superhero movie this year, "Thor: The Dark World." So perhaps in advance of the eventual teaser trailer or teaser for the teaser trailer, the studio has dropped the first poster, and it's....well, you're not going to mistake this movie for anything else.

Just a couple of days after the UK trailer came tearing around the track, we now get a U.S. spot for Ron Howard's racing drama "Rush" along with some new pics for the movie that's revving its engine pretty hard, pretty early. We're still months away from the film arriving, but perhaps Universal realizes that racing movies probably need a bit of a harder push than other genres. Good thing that so far, it looks pretty rock solid.
