(NOTE – trailer is still up, just give it a few seconds to load)
The 5-minute ‘Thor’ trailer shown exclusively at Comic-Con over the weekend is now slightly less exclusive, because it got leaked online today. Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Natalie Portman as Girl and Anthony Hopkins as One Eyed Anthony Hopkins are all prominently featured, but it still gets a little dull because it’s so much longer than a normal trailer. At least until Destroyer shows up at the very end. Seeing him throw those cars around, it was just like when I played with his action figure when I was 16 I mean 10.
THE AVENGERS - were on stage together at Comic-Con, and HERE is a giant full sized picture of it showing, from left to right, Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Clark Gregg (Agent Coulson), Scarlet Johansson (Black Widow), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Evans (Captain America), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Mark Ruffalo (the Hulk) and director Joss Whedon. It’s an amazing cast with the exception of Ruffalo, who replaced Edward Norton. So they replaced one monotone, zero-charisma bore with another, for a character who talks about science. Try to be in your seats for his scenes so you don’t fall down. (aint it cool)
HALLE BERRY – broke up with Gabriel Aubry in April (they dated for 5 years and had a daughter in 2008) but yesterday all 3 of them flew to South Africa. Halle is going to film a movie called ‘Dark Tide’, Gabriel is going to scope out new black chicks. (popeater)
INCEPTION – won the weekend box office again ($43.5 million), despite a strong debut by Angelina Jolies ‘Salt’ ($36.5 million), which maybe would have made more if it didn’t sound like some kind of cooking show. (variety)
BLAKE LIVELY – was at Comic-Con to promote ‘the Green Lantern’, and she and Ryan Reynolds sat on a panel and waited for questions while several hundred nerds nudged each other and pantomimed tits. (getty)
