Natalie Portman Says She’ll Get “Jacked” To Play The New Goddess Of Thunder In ‘Thor 4’

Natalie Portman Says She’ll Get “Jacked” To Play The New Goddess Of Thunder In ‘Thor 4’
You can argue that one of the biggest “gets” for the Marvel Cinematic Universe during the early stages of its film industry domination was landing Natalie Portman to co-star with relative unknown Chris Hemsworth in 2011’s “Thor.” She would then stick around for the second film, ‘Dark something-or-another’ (desperately trying to forget it). However, since then, films have mentioned Portman’s Jane Foster, but have yet to show her again.

The Most Overlooked Movies of the Decade — IndieWire Critics Survey

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday.

This week, IndieWire published our list of the 100 Best Movies of the 2010s.

Of course, any list of 100 movies barely scratches the surface of a decade that saw the release of thousands (and thousands), and a ton of special films — especially of the contested or obscure varieties — didn’t make the cut. And, so with that in mind, we asked our panel of film critics to pick the one overlooked film of the past 10 years that they most hope people will find, rediscover, or reconsider in the future.

Advantageous” (Jennifer Phang)

Even though Quentin Tarantino considers them one big film, the ‘Kill Bill’ films mark the only time that the filmmaker has made a direct sequel to his own work. And according to a new interview, if you were to put a gun to his head and force him to make another sequel to his films, he’d probably go back to the story of The Bride.

‘Adam’ Trailer: A Comedy Of Errors About Mistaken Gender Identity

The trailer for “Adam,” which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, has arrived. “Adam” is a coming-of-age story that deals with themes involving sexual and gender identity. It is also a queer story from the Pov of a straight character rather than a queer one. Usually, films handling the queer experience are seen through the eyes of the queer characters themselves. However, “Adam” looks to offer a different perspective which may or may not bode well.

‘Adam’ Trailer: ‘Transparent’ Director Rhys Ernst Takes on Raunchy Trans Rom-Com

‘Adam’ Trailer: ‘Transparent’ Director Rhys Ernst Takes on Raunchy Trans Rom-Com
The massive success of Jill Soloway’s “Transparent” offered a foot in the door for many trans actors, writers, and directors to get a first legitimate credit in Hollywood. Episode director Silas Howard directed Octavia Spencer in “A Kid Like Jake”; writer Our Lady J is a writer and producer on “Pose”; and actress Trace Lysette’s star is about to reach new heights when she appears opposite Jennifer Lopez in “Hustlers.”

Now, we can add Rhys Ernst to the list of trans Hollywood elite to come out of the school of Soloway. A visual artist and filmmaker, Ernst makes his feature filmmaking debut with “Adam,” a Ya romantic-comedy with an unusual twist.

The movie, which premiered at Sundance earlier this year, packs a number of rising stars in its ranks. Margaret Qualley, who will next appear in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” costars in the film,

Comic-Con: Marvel ‘Shock and Awe’ Strategy Dominates Twitter Buzz

Disney’s Marvel Studios handily won the hype trophy from this year’s Comic-Con International San Diego.

Marvel Studios — which returned to the 2019 Comic-Con stage with a chock-full Phase 4 slate of announcements — dominated the discussion on Twitter out of the convention, capturing the biggest volume of buzz for nine of the top 10 movies or TV shows overall, according to social-analytics firm ListenFirst Media.

“After sitting out Comic-Con in 2018, Marvel Studios basically unleashed a shock-and-awe campaign in Hall H this year,” said ListenFirst Cmo Tracy David. Overall, The CW’s “Supernatural” was the only non-Marvel project to crack the top 10, coming in at No. 7.

The No. 1 most-discussed movie or show at Comic-Con was Marvel’s surprise announcement of Natalie Portman’s return to the Thor franchise in the title role of “Thor: Love and Thunder.” That was followed by the “Blade” reboot starring Mahershala Ali, the standalone “Black Widow” movie
