Far be it from us to snark about "Thor: The Dark World" as people seem to like it and plans are already underway for "Thor 3." But even for those who like the franchise, be honest—it's still third string in the current Marvel universe behind "The Avengers" and "Captain America," right? It is a little goofy, too, and Screen Junkies have detailed just how silly Thor can get.

Last Hijack
Part of the reason why Paul Greengrass' "Captain Phillips" was so effective both as a drama and thriller was that it took the time to humanize the antagonists of the film. Less villains and more the product of the society and circumstances they found themselves in, the pirates who board the ship in the film—led by a commanding, Oscar nominated turn by Barkhad Abdi—are complex characters, part of a system that in many ways, is their only means of survival. And now the forthcoming documentary "Last Hijack," premiering at the Berlin Film Festival, is going to dig deeper into what it means to be Somali pirate, and we have compelling, exclusive trailer.

Divergent
Quick, name a modern YA franchise that has succeeded since the "Twilight" juggernaut stormed into theaters and forced every scared-stiff, looking-over-their-shoulder studio exec to scramble for his/her own would-be moneymaking property? For every 'Hunger Games,' that has triumphed, there has been a "Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones," (initially shuttered, but limping back for a sequel), "Beautiful Creatures" (dead on arrival), "The Host" (a laughable worst-of-year dud), "The Seventh Son" (delayed by more than two years) and the Weinstein Company's "Vampire Academy" looks as if it was concocted by Friedberg and Seltzer.

I Origins, Michael Pitt
Whether or not the legendary Hayao Miyazaki returns from his apparent retirement following his recent “final” film “The Wind Rises," the future of Studio Ghibli still remains bright. Miyazaki’s cohorts Isao Takahata and Hiromasa Yonebayashi have each lent their directorial talents to Ghibli films in the past (“My Neighbors The Yamadas," “The Secret World of Arietty”), but Hayao’s son Goro Miyazaki has also thrown his hat into the ring as well, and now he plans to take the studio into new territory on the small screen.

The Face Of An Angel
“We bought the rights to the book that tells the story of the trial, but our film is not really about that, so we are always a bit wary of even saying that,” director Michael Winterbottom told THR last summer about his upcoming drama based on American journalist Barbie Latza Nadeau's book "Angel Face: Sex, Murder and the Inside Story of Amanda Knox." “Our film is actually about losing a daughter, losing someone close to you; why are we so interested in violence and why are we not more interested in love.” Well, it's a nice claim to make but based on this first teaser trailer/promo reel for the movie, the trial takes center stage.

The cars might be new and the cast might be different—but under the hood, the engine is the same: director Michael Bay. And for his fourth go at the "Transformers" franchise, you can expect bigger and badder. But better?
