As most of the United States is buried under cold and snowy temps, Australia is having balmy warm weather. The country of marmite, koalas and kangaroos, and the Great Barrier Reef is currently hosting the first of the tennis grand slams of 2018, The Australian Open.

What we are excited about: The cast, no pun intended, is strong. Chris Hemsworth has proven to be good leading man with the “Thor” and “Avenger” franchises, and he has plenty of talent surrounding him too. Michael Shannon, Taylor Sheridan, Michael Pena, and William Fichtner are all great supporting actors. Combine the acting talent with a strong true story, and this has the potential to

While appearing on The Tonight Show, the Aussie actor confirmed that the following individuals will be starring alongside him in Infinity War – *deep breath* – Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chris Pratt, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Benicio del Toro, Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle and Paul Rudd. And…exhale.
Now, there’s nothing terribly shocking about any of this, as almost all of these actors have been spotted on set already. Still, it
Evans himself added to the speculation this past weekend, signing both ‘Cap’ and ‘Nomad’ on a Captain America shield during an appearance at Arizona’s Ace Comic Con. However, we now have confirmation from Infinity War co-director Joe Russo that Cap won’t be Nomad exactly, but will be “in the spirit of that character.”
“Our approach to the [Steve Rogers] was to deconstruct him, to take him in a different direction,” Russo told Fantasy Focus Football. “Obviously you can’t deal with a character called Captain America without dealing with the thematics behind that, so we wanted a relevancy to it and
As may assumed after the first trailer for Infinity War, Lego set leaks have confirmed that it won’t be Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark donning the Hulkbuster suit in the movie, but rather Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner. As yet, it’s unclear whether this confirms the speculation that Banner may be getting separated from his angry alter-ego, but it certainly adds some weight to it.

Currently out promoting his true-life war drama 12 Strong, Marvel’s God of Thunder swung by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (h/t ComicBook.com), where talk inevitably veered toward Avengers: Infinity War, the deadliest McU movie yet.
In doing so, Fallon quizzed Hemsworth about the time he almost passed up the chance to play Thor for Marvel Studios. It’s something that the Aussie actor has addressed before, of course, and he’s been pretty forthcoming about his initial hesitation (spoilers: Chris Hemsworth was wary of signing a multi-picture deal for a project still in its infancy). But now that the McU has ballooned into a billion-dollar franchise, the actor has precisely zero regrets, and admitted that if he was in possession of a time machine,
Time’s Up — the organization founded by 300 figures in the entertainment industry like Meryl Streep, America Ferrera, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and more — announced Wednesday that the organization is partnering with Condé Nast and eBay to auction off a selection of the black gowns and tuxedos worn by celebrities on the red carpet at the 2018 Golden Globes.

Marvel fans have been asking about a standalone Black Widow movie since the character first showed up in 2010's Iron Man 2 and now Marvel is actively pursuing the movie. Since the news dropped, fans have been cautiously optimistic about what a Black Widow movie will mean for the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Chris Hemsworth has hinted at
The Warner Bros., Jerry Bruckheimer-produced film is based on the 2009 book Horse Soldiers, as well as real-life events overseas.
At the film’s premiere at New York's Jazz at Lincoln Center on Tuesday night, the stars, who mingled with their real-life counterparts, talked about the comradery they developed on- and offscreen.
“We had weeks...
“Jumanji” is likely to take in between $15 million to $20 million in its fifth frame, which will lift its total domestic take to around $320 million — making the action-comedy one of the top 60 domestic performers of all time, with plenty of drawing power in the weeks to come. International performance for the Dwayne Johnson-Kevin Hart vehicle has been impressive with $385 million so far.
“12 Strong,” produced by Alcon Entertainment, Black Label Media, and Jerry Bruckheimer, will pose the greater threat, with tracking showing an opening in the $14 million to $17 million range at 3,002 locations — including Imax, premium large format, and Dolby Cinema. Warner Bros. is handling distribution through its output deal with Alcon.

Embedded below, there are 15 action shots in total, most of which have been pulled from Infinity War‘s record-setting trailer – 230 million views in its first 24 hours of release – while one features the close-up of Mantis (Pom Klementieff) and the unconscious Thor (Chris Hemsworth) that initially released through USA Today.
It’s just one of many, many crowd-pleasing exchanges primed to take place in Infinity War, given Joe and Anthony Russo have stacked their event movie with no less than 76 characters. That’s an impressive, if overwhelming roster by any standard, though we’re quietly confident in the Russo Brothers’ ability following their frankly incredible work on Captain America: Civil War.
This weekend in theatres, I'm excited to see 12 Strong and Den of Thieves!
Chris Hemsworth (Thor, The Avengers) and Oscar nominee Michael Shannon (The Shape of Water, Nocturnal Animals) star in 12 Strong, a powerful new war drama based on the best-selling book Horse Soldiers. It is the story of heroism based on true events that unfolded a world away in the aftermath of 9/11. The epic action in this should be seen on the big screen!
Starring Gerald Butler, Den of Thieves follows the intersecting and often personally connected lives of an elite unit of the La County Sheriff's Dept. and the state's most successful bank robbery crew as the outlaws plan a seemingly impossible heist on the Federal Reserve Bank of downtown Los Angeles.
Directed by Nicolai Fuglsig
Starring Chris Hemsworth, Michael Shannon, Michael Peña, Navid Negahban, Trevante Rhodes, Geoff Stults, Thad Luckinbill, Austin Stowell, Ben O’Toole, Austin Hebert, Kenneth Miller, Kenny Sheard, Jack Kesy, Elsa Pataki, William Fichtner, Rob Riggle, Laith Nakli, Fahim Fazli, and Numan Acar.
12 Strong tells the story of the first Special Forces team deployed to Afghanistan after 9/11; under the leadership of a new captain, the team must work with an Afghan warlord to take down the Taliban.
As Us paramilitary soldiers and the Northern Alliance of Afghanistan get to know one another, General Dostum (Homeland‘s Navid Negahban) refuses to show Captain Mitch Nelson (Chris Hemsworth of Thor fame) the same level of respect as the rest of his titular brotherly squad of 12 soldiers. He goes on to cite Officer Hal Spencer’s (the always scorchingly intense Michael Shannon) eyes as the telling sign of a true warrior,
“12 Strong,” one of those rare “serious” Bruckheimer productions, tells the story of the first U.S. soldiers to land in Afghanistan in the days after 9/11: the members of Oda 595, an elite Special Forces unit that was ordered to link up with a local warlord and fight its way, village by village, to the Taliban stronghold of Mazar-i-Sharif (the country’s fourth largest city). There, they would theoretically gut the Taliban’s nexus of power and topple the ability of Afghanistan to serve as a training ground for Al Qaeda troops.
