Cinecast: JLaw Worried ‘American Hustle’ Costumer, ‘Thor 3’ a Go

Jennifer Lawrence in 'American Hustle'+ It's a good thing that Jennifer Lawrence's white dress from American Hustle only cost $3.99 for a yard of the fabric: costume designer Michael Wilkinson revealed that the actress got into some trouble eating Doritos while in costume. Yeah, we're not surprised, either.

+ Disney/Marvel announced that the sequel to Thor: The Dark World has been greenlit, adding that Christopher Yost (who co-wrote Thor: The Dark World) and Craig Kyle (who produced both Thor films) are set to write it.

+ Twilight alum Nikki Reed has been cast in horror film Email, which will be set in Singapore. Perhaps this latest American-take-on-Asian-horror project will serve as her springboard onto bigger projects, as it seemed to do for Naomi Watts (almost forgot that she was in The Ring, eh?).

+ Forest Whitaker will be taking a step behind the camera to direct Lionsgate's adaptation of the best-selling book The Shack.

Thor The Dark World poster

The long-awaited trailer for Thor: The Dark World is finally here, offering a look at the main characters in the film, like Malekith (played by Christopher Eccleston.) Thor: The Dark World hits theaters on November 8, 2013.

Just as Marvels “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvels “Thor” and “Marvels The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

Check out the trailer after the break!

Tom Hiddleston: I Was ‘Rubbish’ in Thor

Tom HiddlestonTom Hiddleston thought he was "rubbish" in Thor.

The 31-year-old star feels "very lucky" that director Joss Whedon enjoyed his performance as Thor's (Chris Hemsworth) brother Loki in the Kenneth Branagh-helmed superhero movie, so much so he wanted him to play a big part in The Avengers.

"There was no guarantee that it was going to be such a big part, I think. And I also felt like I'd been rubbish in Thor - there was no way I was going to come back. So it was one step at a time and I was very lucky that, as we were coming to the end of shooting Thor, Ken Branagh showed Joss a rough cut of the film and Joss loved it, he loved what Ken had done with it and was really about what Chris and I had done on it. And [Whedon] said, 'I want to take that relationship and make the stakes higher. You've got these two brothers who are fighting each other and now what's at stake is the fate of Planet Earth, because that's what's going on.' So it's really exciting."

Chris Hemsworth Was Apprehensive About Avengers Role

Chris Hemsworth as ThorChris Hemsworth was initially apprehensive about starring in The Avengers.

The actor admits he wasn't sure about taking on the role of Thor in the superhero ensemble movie because there were so many big names in it. "I kept getting asked beforehand who was going to be the biggest diva and who was going to manage all the egos," he said, speaking about the movie.

However, Chris had nothing to worry about and says everyone got on great as they were all there to make the best movie possible:

"I hadn't worked with any of the guys before and it was great. I don't know if they're normally like that but everyone was well behaved. There were no big egos. I think the days of that sort of attitude are gone because films nowadays rely a lot more on concept than on individual stars and it keeps everyone in check. The movie is about teamwork and because each of us had done our individual films, we had a strong idea of who the characters were, so all we had to do was put the pieces together rather than work out what our solo journey was. It was much easier than sharing the load."


Idris Elba Will Return For Thor Sequel

Idris Elba in ThorIdris Elba will be returning to the Thor series.

The British actor - who played the role of guardian Heimdall in the first instalment of the action movie starring Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hilddleston - has confirmed he will be back for the second feature, which is due to begin filming this year.

Asked if he had any Marvel projects in the future, he said, "Thor 2, for sure. We're going at it again." However, he admits he has yet to meet the film's director Alan Taylor, who took over after Patty Jenkins dropped out due to differences of opinion.

Natalie Portman - who played Jane Foster in the 2011 film - is also widely expected to return, although she was said to have been annoyed at Patty being sidelined in the project. The first Thor, which told the tale of the leader of the Norse Gods, played by Sir Anthony Hopkins, banishing his son to earth, made $448.5 million at the box office worldwide.


Tom Hiddleston’s Avengers Hug

Tom Hiddleston and Chris Hemsworth in The AvengersTom Hiddleston felt like he was having a "group hug" on the set of The Avengers.

The British actor portrays his Thor' character Loki in the forthcoming Marvel comic book movie, and while the film's big cast - including Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth - was slightly intimidating at first, he admits the group got along famously quickly.

"For the first 10 minutes after you meet them, they have the wattage and charisma of movie stars. Then you have a coffee with them and you realize we're all the same, we're all just people. All of the actors in The Avengers are so nice. Marvel has these code names for projects and the code name for The Avengers was Group Hug. It felt very much like a group hug on set."

Tom - who is the villain of the film - admits his favorite part of the movie was getting to do his own stunts: "My favorite moment on set was filming at a NASA location the size of a cathedral. I flew around like a trapeze artist in a rocket-testing facility in the company of Samuel L. Jackson and Jeremy Renner. That was a pretty good day at work."

Kung Fu Panda 2 fell far short of the first-place mark, earning $62.2 million during the three-day weekend. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides racked up $50.4 million in third place. Bridesmaids earned $21 million, and Thor finishes off the top five with $12 million. Maybe some bad reviews would boost their box office mojo?
