Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok gets a batch of new images

17 August 2017 10:44 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following yesterday’s international trailer for Thor: Ragnarok featuring Doctor Strange [watch it here], a new batch of images from director Taika Waititi’s upcoming Marvel blockbuster have arrived online, giving us another look at the likes of Thor, Hulk/Bruce Banner, Loki, The Grandmaster, Valkyrie, Skurge, and Heimdall; check them out here…

In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok,” Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk.

Thor: Ragnarok is being directed by Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows) and features Marvel veterans Chris Hemsworth as Thor, »

‘Thor: Ragnarok’: 18 New Images Prepare for the End of the Universe

17 August 2017 9:58 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Marvel has released 18 new images from Thor: Ragnarok. The upcoming sequel sees Thor (Chris Hemsworth) imprisoned on the other side of the universe and forced to put together a team in order to stop the ruthless Goddess of Death, Hela (Cate Blanchett). From what we’ve seen so far, the movie looks like an absolute blast and a far cry from the first two Thor movies. While some fans have cited a look that’s similar to Guardians of the Galaxy, I would say that Ragnarok still looks like it has its own personality. Yes, there are big, bold, … »

17 August 2017 9:23 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Playing royal queens is often a one-way ticket to awards season. Just ask Cate Blanchett, Helen Mirren, Judi Dench, and Claire Foy. So will Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie be next? The two actresses have officially started filming “Mary, Queen of Scots” on location in England and Scotland, and Focus Features is marking the occasion with a first look at Ronan as the title character.

Emma Stone Tops Forbes’ 2017 Highest-Paid Actresses List

17 August 2017 8:08 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Emma Stone in “La La Land

Emma Stone has achieved another milestone. Less than six months after winning the Academy Award for Best Actress, the “La La Land” star took the top spot on Forbes’ annual list of the world’s highest-paid actresses. Stone earned $26 million before tax over 12 months, most of which came from “La La Land’s” box office earnings. She is also the “the biggest dollar and percent gainer, year over year, of anyone” on this year’s list.

It’s fitting to see Stone top the list, as she has recently been outspoken about the gender pay gap in Hollywood. “In my career so far, I’ve needed my male co-stars to take a pay cut so that I may have parity with them. And that’s something they do for me because they feel it’s what’s right and fair,” she revealed. “That’s something that’s also not discussed, necessarily — that our getting equal pay is going to require people to selflessly say, ‘That’s what’s fair.’ If my male co-star, who has a higher quote than me but believes we are equal, takes a pay cut so that I can match him, that changes my quote in the future and changes my life.”

With $25.5 million, Jennifer Aniston ranks at №2 on the list. Most of her take comes from endorsement deals with companies like Emirates airlines, Smartwater, and Aveeno. Last year’s top-earner, Jennifer Lawrence, is third with $24 million. Her upcoming roles in films like “mother!” contributed to her bottom line, as did her endorsement deal with Dior.

Of the 10 top-earning actresses Forbes spotlights, none are women of color. While international stars like Charlize Theron, Emma Watson, and Cate Blanchett made the list, Asian actresses Fan Bingbing and Deepika Padukone “dropped off due to quieter years.”

Only Watson, the №6 earner, is new to the list. The success of Disney’s live-action “Beauty and the Beast,” in which Watson portrayed Belle, is the main force behind the actress’ $14 million income this year.

Next week, Forbes will publish its list of highest-paid actors — who usually earn much, much more than the women on the actresses’ list. Last year, Lawrence was №1 with $46 million. Her male counterpart was Dwayne Johnson, who was №1 with $64.5 million. Lawrence made just 71 percent of Johnson’s pay and actually earned less than the fifth highest-paid actor, Johnny Depp ($48 million).

Here are 2017's highest-earning actresses, courtesy of Forbes:

Emma Stone: $26 millionJennifer Aniston: $25.5 millionJennifer Lawrence: $24 millionMelissa McCarthy: $18 millionMila Kunis: $15.5 millionEmma Watson: $14 millionCharlize Theron: $14 millionCate Blanchett: $12 millionJulia Roberts: $12 millionAmy Adams: $11.5 million

Emma Stone Tops Forbes’ 2017 Highest-Paid Actresses List was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Emma Stone Surpasses Jennifer Lawrence as Hollywood's Highest Paid Actress

17 August 2017 6:07 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It certainly pays off to live in the city of stars!

Emma Stone has topped Forbes‘ annual ranking of Hollywood’s highest-paid actresses, surpassing Jennifer Lawrence, who claimed the top spot in 2016 and 2015.

And that’s a tidy sum there: Stone banked a cool $26 million for the year, largely thanks to her  Oscar-winning performance in the musical La La Land.

Jennifer Aniston was runner-up with $25.5 million, while Lawrence dropped to No. 3 with $24 million — almost half of her $46 million earnings in 2016.

Emma Watson also joined this year’s list after Beauty and the Beast became the top-grossing movie of the year. »

Doctor Strange Returns in New Thor: Ragnarok Trailer

16 August 2017 6:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Thor: Ragnarok just got a little more magical. We've known for a while that Benedict Cumberbatch was set to appear in the upcoming Thor movie, as revealed by one of the post-credits scenes from Doctor Strange, but he has yet to be featured in any of the marketing for the movie. Until now. A brand new Japanese trailer for Thor: Ragnarok has arrived online that features an appearance by none other than the Sorcerer Supreme himself.

The new Thor: Ragnarok trailer arrived online via a Japanese Marvel YouTube channel and kicks off with a little bit of interaction between Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder and Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange. It seems like this will take place early on in the movie and Marvel's resident master magician has some ominous words for Thor in the new footage.

16 August 2017 5:27 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Stone’s earnings came in ahead of Jennifer Aniston and Jennifer Lawrence on Forbes’ annual list of Hollywood’s top earners.

At 28 years old, Emma Stone has been named as this year’s highest-paid actress, taking home $26m in the last 12 months.

Stone earned the bulk of her earnings from her portrayal of Mia in La La Land, which earned her an Oscar for best actress. The film has grossed more than $445.3m worldwide.

Stone spoke out against the gender pay gap in Hollywood, revealing in an interview with Out Magazine that some of her male co-stars have taken pay cuts to ensure parity. Stone will next be seen alongside Steve Carell in upcoming film Battle Of The Sexes.

Jennifer Aniston comes in a close second, earning $25.5m in the last 12 months.  While Aniston continues to star in films regularly, like Office Christmas Party and The Yellow Birds, the majority of her earnings come from endorsing brands »

The Sorcerer Supreme Enters The Fray In This International Trailer For Thor: Ragnarok

16 August 2017 2:53 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“Destiny has dire plans for you, my friend.” To which Chris Hemsworth’s God of Thunder replies, “and I have dire plans for destiny.”

Yes, the latest (and greatest?) international trailer for Thor: Ragnarok has stormed online and in it, you’ll find Thor paying a visit to the great Doctor Strange. You’ll notice that Hemsworth’s Asgardian is still sporting those luscious blonde locks, so we assume this meeting actually takes place sometime before the advent of Hela. For in Ragnarok, Cate Blanchett’s Goddess of Death, who is presumably wielding the sixth and final Infinity Stone as her source of limitless power, wages war against Asgard and ostensibly banishes Thor to the other side of the cosmos, where he crash lands on the alien planet of Sakaar.

There, he comes into contact with the Incredible Hulk – for the first time since Age of Ultron, no less – and »

Cate Blanchett in talks for Eli Roth’s The House With a Clock in Its Walls

16 August 2017 12:41 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Actress Cate Blanchett is in talks to join the cast of Eli Roth’s The House With a Clock in Its Walls.

The Amblin Entertainment venture will be directed by Eli Roth and would see Blanchett working alongside Jack Black.

The House With a Clock in Its Walls will be an adaptation of the 1973 horror novel by John Bellairs, a book which tells the story of an orphaned boy who moves in with his uncle. It turns out that the boy’s uncle is a mediocre witch, and the boy is propelled into a world of magic and danger; no more so than when he discovers a clock inside the house walls which is designed to usher in doomsday.

Jack Black will be playing the uncle in the movie. If Blanchett signs her deal she will be portraying Mrs. Zimmerman, a witch and the uncle’s neighbour/best friend.

Chris Hemsworth Was "Weirdly Shaken" Meeting Chris Pratt: "He's Just So Charismatic"

It's not often that other men intimidate Chris Hemsworth. But, when dozens of actors united to film Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War, the actor admits he did get a bit nervous meeting one of his co-stars. "The first time I really met Chris Pratt—and went on set with him and the Guardians—I was weirdly shaken," he laughs in an interview with Elle. "I don't know why. He's just so charismatic. And good at what he does." Hemsworth was similarly thrown off kilter when he filmed Thor: Ragnarok opposite Cate Blanchett, who stars as Hela, the goddess of death.
