Find Out What Thor Was Up to During 'Civil War' in Comic-Con Video

Thor Comic-Con Video

"So, I needed some 'me' time, and I came to Australia and that's when I moved in with Daryl!" This is genius. Marvel Studios has officially released the hilarious video that first debuted in Hall H at Comic-Con this year showing what Thor was up to during Captain America: Civil War. If you saw that film, you may have noticed Thor was missing from action while things were getting crazy. To answer that question, they made this "The Office"-style video featuring Chris Hemsworth in character as Thor discussing his time hanging out with regular people down in Australia. He even meets up with Mark Ruffalo (aka Bruce Banner) at one point and tries to get in touch with Tony Stark via "electronic letter". Gotta love this. Enjoy.

Watch: Fantastic Fest Trailer for New Zealand Comedy Series 'Terry Teo'

Terry Teo Trailer

"In 2016, danger has a new name." We're breaking our own rules to bring you a trailer for a TV series, but this deserves the attention. Terry Teo is a 2016 reboot of a vintage 80's TV show from New Zealand, this version directed by the guy who made the film Housebound. The show stars Kahn Wes as the titular "Terry Teo", a "savvy teenager" who uses his street smarts to solve crime. This looks way better than it sounds, and the humor is spot on. The other reason we're featuring this is that it's actually premiering (in the US) at one of our favorite festivals - Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX. If you've enjoyed any of films by Taika Waititi, then you need to take a look at this. The series is actually rated PG in New Zealand but it still looks like crazy fun.

Travel Back to Japan in 1814 in US Trailer for Animated 'Miss Hokusai'

Miss Hokusai Trailer

"That nutty old man is my father." GKids has debuted a trailer for the animated film called Miss Hokusai, which opened in Japan in 2015 and played at numerous film festivals last year. The film is about the life and works of Japanese artist and ukiyo-e painter Katsushika Hokusai, also known as Tetsuzo, as seen from the eyes of his daughter, Katsushika O-Ei. You all know his work because Hokusai painted the very famous piece known as "The Great Wave off Kanagawa". The voice cast includes Anne Watanabe as O-Ei, Yutaka Matsushige as Hokusai, plus Kumiko Asô, Gaku Hamada and Kengo Kôra. Not only is it cool to see a story about Hokusai, but it's lovely to see it told from the perspective of his daughter, who was dedicated to making sure her father could produce this art. I love catching up with animated films like this. Take a look.

Discover 'A Dog's Purpose' in Trailer for Lasse Hallström's New Movie

A Dog's Purpose Trailer

"If I can get you licking and loving, I have my purpose." Aw, this looks adorable. Universal has debuted a trailer for the movie called A Dog's Purpose, directed by Swedish filmmaker Lasse Hallström (who also made the movie Hachi: A Dog's Tale ). Told from a dog's perspective, which is provided a voice by Josh Gad, the film does indeed attempt to show what a dog's purpose is - especially in connection with humans. The family film also stars Dennis Quaid, Peggy Lipton, Britt Robertson, K.J. Apa, Juilet Rylance, Luke Kirby, John Ortiz and Pooch Hall. There's more than one dog and they all look so friendly. As a huge dog lover, I have to say, this plays right to my emotions. Bring on the doggie love, can't wait to see this.

Looking Back: The Unseen Gems of the 2016 Summer Movie Season

Unseen Gems of the 2016 Summer Movie Season

With the 2016 summer movie season all but officially over, plenty of movie bloggers/journalists have been quick to say this past summer has been rather lackluster for film. I would argue otherwise – while some of the blockbusters have crashed and burned at the box office, this past weekend Suicide Squad and Sausage Party still performed strong at the box office. Marvel's Captain America: Civil War and Disney's Pete's Dragon were highlights of the summer as well. So why all the “doom & gloom”? That's likely because most audiences never really gave some of the best films of summer 2016 a chance. There were quite a few hidden gems out there waiting to be seen, if you were brave enough to give them your time (and money).

Review: Alvarez's 'Don't Breathe' is Effective & Engrossing Exploitation

Don't Breathe

Don't Breathe, the second feature film from Uruguayan writer-director Fede Alvarez (of 2013's Evil Dead reboot) produced by legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi, is the depraved offspring of Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring and Wes Craven's The People Under the Stairs. It's about a group of teens who try to rob a blind man's house, only to discover he's not as passive as they expected. Jane Levy, who already earned her Final Girl Merit Badge as Mia in Alvarez's Evil Dead, stars as Rocky, a young woman determined to escape her abusive mother and save her younger sister (Emma Bercovici) from a dead-end existence in Detroit.

Nick Kroll & Adam Scott in First Trailer for Comedy 'My Blind Brother'

My Blind Brother Trailer

"Honestly, who cares? I can't trust my feelings." Starz Media & Orion Pictures have released a trailer for the comedy My Blind Brother, about a romantic rivalry between two brothers. Adam Scott stars as the more handsome, athletic sibling along with Nick Kroll as his brother who has always been by his side most of his life. They both fall for the same woman, comedian powerhouse Jenny Slate, causing some chaos that leads to shenanigans which is meant to make people laugh. The cast includes Zoe Kazan, Talia Tabin and Charlie Hewson. While this doesn't look as bad as it sounds, it doesn't look that great either, with a few sparse moments of genuine comedy amidst some awkward scenes of cheesiness. At least it has Jenny Slate.

Official Trailer for Sundance Coming-of-Age Drama 'First Girl I Loved'

First Girl I Loved Trailer

"What are we doing here?" A trailer has debuted for an indie coming-of-age romantic drama called First Girl I Love, which I saw at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. This sweet little flick is about an awkward love triangle that forms when Anne, played by Dylan Gelula, realizes she is in love with Sasha, the most popular girl at her high school, played by Brianna Hildebrand. She confesses this to her friend Clifton, played by Mateo Arias, who has a thing for her and he gets jealous and it all starts to get awkward. This is a pretty good film, a bit cheesy at times, but it's another solid cinematic story about young first love.

Jack Goes Home Trailer

"I always thought this house was haunted…" Momentum has released a trailer for an indie thriller called Jack Goes Home, from actor-turned-filmmaker Thomas Dekker, who both wrote and directed this film. Rory Culkin stars as a magazine editor, along with Britt Robertson as his fiance, who goes back to his home town after learning that his parents are in a deadly car accident. Things get crazy when he returns. "Jack comes to learn that the idyllic world he has believed in since infancy is in fact a nightmare playground full of lies, deception, violence and murder." The full cast includes Lin Shaye, Natasha Lyonne, Nikki Reed, Daveigh Chase and Louis Hunter. This trailer gets very creepy and very weird in the second half.

Another Horrifying New Trailer for 'Blair Witch' from Wingard/Barrett

Blair Witch Trailer

"Who could've done this?" "You did this!" Lionsgate has unleashed another new full-length trailer for the new Blair Witch movie, which is actually a sequel/continuation of the breakout horror movie The Blair Witch Project from 1999. As reported when the movie first premiered at Comic-Con, this sequel was quietly made under the working title of The Woods before it unveiled to fans last month. Director & writer team Adam Wingard & Simon Barrett (of The Guest, You're Next) are behind this new film, which stars Corbin Reid, Wes Robinson, Valorie Curry, James Allen McCune and Callie Hernandez. This new trailer is scary as all hell, and it will make you afraid of going into the woods at night. Stay away from any tunnels.

Watch: First Full Trailer for Garth Davis' Film 'Lion' Starring Dev Patel

Lion Dev Patel Trailer

"What if you do find home and they're not even there, and you just keep searching…?" "I don't have a choice." The Weinstein Company has finally debuted a trailer for the film Lion, from director Garth Davis, a powerful story of finding your home and your family no matter how hard that is. Dev Patel stars as Saroo Brierley, an Indian boy who was adopted by an Australian family and raised in Australia after he became separated from his real family at a young age. He decides to go back to India to search for his family and reconnect with them. The cast includes Rooney Mara, Nicole Kidman & David Wenham. This actually looks really good! I've heard some solid buzz about this recently and it looks like it might live up to the hype.

Must Watch: Short Film 'Where You Are' Directed by Graham Parkes

Where You Are

"Guys, it's just my mom!" Today's impressive short film worth watching is called Where You Are, a rather peculiar yet fascinating story about a hide-and-seek game gone awry. The story starts when a mother begins playing a harmless game of hide-and-seek with her son James, but suddenly ends traveling through time trying to find him. Sounds odd, but it's good. I love the way this plays out, just flowing from one moment to the next without much time to figure out what's going on (much like life, right?) yet it's obviously intricately planned out. This is the kind of short film that will make you realize there's still great ideas out there. Enjoy.

David Oyelowo & Rosamund Pike in UK Trailer for 'A United Kingdom'

A United Kingdom Trailer

"No man is free who is not master of himself." Fox & Pathe have debuted the official UK trailer for a film called A United Kingdom, starring David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike as a married couple. The film tells the true story of Seretse Khama, the king of Bechuanaland (modern Botswana), and Ruth Williams, the London office worker that he married in 1948 in the face of fierce opposition from their families and their governments. This isn't the only film this year about a controversial interracial marriage, as Jeff Nichols' Loving also tells of a story of a marriage that upset many people. But love is love, and that's what is most important. The cast in this one includes Tom Felton, Laura Carmichael, Jack Davenport, Charlotte Hope, and Jessica Oyelowo. As usual, Oyelowo looks like he's giving another magnificent performance.

Planetarium Trailer

"Tell André to be careful." The first trailer has arrived for the film Planetarium, from French filmmaker Rebecca Zlotowski, which is premiering at both the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals coming up. Natalie Portman and Lily-Rose Depp star as sisters in Paris in the 1930s who have the mysterious supernatural ability to connect with ghosts. The two of them put on performances in the city and make movies, but end up in some other trouble. The full cast includes Emmanuel Salinger, Amira Casar, Pierre Salvadori, and Louis Garrel. This looks very French, with luxurious shots of vintage locations plus romance galore.
