Movie News: Chris Hemsworth and Michael Mann Team for Thriller; New Trailers for 'Fast & Furious 6' and 'The Host'

The Avengers

Chris Hemsworth/Michael Mann: Thor will be teaming up with a legendary director. Chris Hemsworth (Thor, The Avengers) is set to star in an untitled thriller to be directed by Michael Mann (Miami Vice, Public Enemies); the plot is said to revolve around cyber threats and attacks. Hemsworth became available when Steven Spielberg decided to tap the brakes on the action flick Robopocalypse. [Variety]

21 and Over: Resembling a younger version of The Hangover, 21 and Over appears to endorse a "party first, think of the consequences later" ethos, which may be fine for audiences in the U.S. but not for those in China, especially since a lead character is Chinese. So an “only in China” version will play there, one that includes a prologue and epilogue to make it clear partying does not pay, and painting the U.S. in a “bad light.” [Los Angeles Times]

Fast & Furious 6 Trailer: A new version of the smashing Super Bowl TV spot for Fast & Furious 6 will hit theaters today. The plot is laid out more explicitly, with greater attention paid to the role played by Michelle Rodriguez, whose character was thought dead. Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson also star; the movie is due out on May 24. [YouTube]

The Host Trailer: The aliens have landed! And they’ve taken over our bodies! Never fear, Saoirse Ronan (Hanna) is here to save humanity. Based on a novel by Stephenie Meyer (Twilight), The Host is a thriller set in a sleek yet bleak future, in which a young woman fights against the odds -- and weird contact lenses. A new trailer does a great job of explaining and selling the concept; the movie invades theaters on March 29. [Collider]
