Thor poster introduces Marvel’s “God of Thunder”

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: Audiences have had to endure a serious dry spell at the box office this year. No picture has really stood up and grabbed the collective attention of the multiplex-wandering public. Sure, this weekend’s one-two punch of “Rango” and “The Adjustment Bureau” should entertain. But I think it’s[...]

“Thor” trailer finally online!

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: I made a bet with a friend. I’m betting that “Thor” can make as much money at the U.S. box office as the original “Iron Man.” He disagrees. In my favor, “Thor” will be the first movie of Summer 2011. It benefits from the build-up surrounding the Marvel[...]

“Captain America” photos and footage show Hayley Atwell in action

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: In the age of cell phone cameras and YouTube, it’s very difficult for any Hollywood studio to keep a tentpole production under wraps during filming. Which explains, to a certain extent, how we are able to have decent photographs and handheld footage of Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter[...]

“Thor” Comic-Con trailer online … for now!

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: The “Thor” trailer which screened at Comic-Con last weekend has made its way online, though not through proper channels. It’s currently hosted on TheFilmStage.com, but it isn’t a cam version. It’s a clean, ready-for-theaters version. This makes me think we’ll see it on iTunes or Yahoo! Movies come[...]

Rare Captain America and Thor props steal the show at Comic-Con

Yet another “Thor” photo makes its way to the Web

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: We have had so many “Thor” updates over the last few days, you’d think Kenneth Branagh’s adaptation of Marvel Comics’ Norse God adventures was opening this Friday.
