Jack the Giant Slayer

Jack the Giant Slayer: Who’s that lurking on the big television in the back? Why, it’s none other than the Giant from Bryan Singer’s Jack the Giant Slayer (formerly known as Jack the Giant Killer), due out in theaters on March 1, 2013. Singer tweeted the picture from the editing room, where he and his team are hard at work putting the finishing touches on the movie, which stars Nicholas Hoult as Jack.

Chris Hemsworth: When writer-director Stephen Gaghan’s thriller Candy Store was announced in August, a dizzying array of actors were mentioned as possibilities to star, including Denzel Washington, Brad Pitt, Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Christian Bale, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and Bradley Cooper. But now it looks like Chris Hemsworth (Thor) has nabbed the lead for the crime picture set in Brooklyn. Hemsworth is also a possibility for Triumph AKA 40 Summers Ago, a planned biopic on Steve McQueen, in which his brother Liam Hemsworth could also star. [The Wrap]

Mysterious Movie Tragedy: During a screening of Wreck-It Ralph in Mexico City earlier this month, tragedy struck when a 10-year-boy was shot in the head; he died two days later. What has left folks baffled is that other moviegoers, including the boy’s father, say they heard no gunshots, while the autopsy report indicates he was shot from a distance of four to six feet in the packed theater.

Red Dawn Trailer: Before Chris Hemsworth made Thor, he starred in a remake of Red Dawn, which will finally emerge in theaters on November 21 after a long delay due to MGM’s financial woes. The latest attempt to stir interest in the thriller takes a patriotic approach. [MSN via The Film Stage]
