The Hulk may be the strongest of The Avengers but he’s also the most unpredictable and uncontrollable, making him the most dangerous – in a bad way. We saw hints of this in The Avengers where he lost control on the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier and attacked Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and it’s an issue that Dr. Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) continually deals with in the comics.
Banner and The Hulk are both battling for control and despite Banner seemingly embracing the green beast for the climactic battle of New York at the end of The Avengers, and despite Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) expressing confidence in Banner’s wild side, Banner can never be fully in control. In the sequel, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ultron aims to break the team, using a few super-powered individuals of his own and an army of robots, and »

The Avengers reassemble for a sequel and they were out in force along with the cast of Ant-man for the Marvel Studios presentation at Comic Con in San Diego. Chris Evans, Robert Downey, Jr., Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Cobie Smulders, Mark Ruffalo, and many others were under the same roof. Glance through the Comic Con Marvel photo gallery with all the stars.
There was so much star power at Comic Con's Marvel presentation in San Diego that the screams in Hall H at the San Diego Convention Center were heard around the world. Even Paul Rudd he was overwhelmed with the fan reaction and star struck that he was hanging with the Avengers. Paul Rudd was there to promote his role as Ant-Man in the Marvel adaptation of the comic book which will also stars Michael Douglas, Corey Stoll ("The Stain), Evangeline Lilly and Michael Peña. Everyone except for Peña was there. »

Out this Friday, Joss Whedon: The Biography delves into the life of the filmmaker as told by author Amy Pascale, with a foreword by Nathan Fillion. In it, fans will get to peer into the making of Marvel's The Avengers. And one of the cooler things included is an email from star of the movie Tom Hiddleston, who plays the evil brother of Thor, Loki.
Joss, I am so excited I can hardly speak.
The first time I read it I grabbed at it like Charlie Bucket snatching for a golden ticket somewhere behind the chocolate in the wrapper of a Wonka Bar. I didn't know where to start. Like a classic actor I jumped in looking for Loki on every page, jumping back and forth, »
"Lucy" will be discussed soon on the podcast but at least one member of Scarjo-loving Tfe refuses to see it. Here's Matthew Eng to tell you why. - Editor
I don't care if Lucy is every bit the gloriously silly and shamelessly outré action fireworks show that gung-ho summer audiences have made into a "surprise hit." I care even less that Luc Besson has managed to curb his own gonzo cheese-fest tendencies to a running time of less than 90 minutes, compared to the ceaselessly spinning tops and chiseled self-mythologizing of every Christopher Nolan movie post-Insomnia. And, though it's been tempting, I finally don't care that Besson and Co. have seemingly put the newly-rejuvenated Scarlett Johansson (so good in Under the Skin; so great in Don Jon) on a pedestal of full-out Film Goddess proportions, in a genre where movies in which women are front and center and not merely »

San Diego Comic-Con. It’s the big one, or at least it is sometimes the big one. More and more this event is becoming something catered to the people who are physically there, which is fantastic. As someone who goes to press conferences for moves and someone who has attended Comic-Con, »
Kudos to Scarlett Johansson and Mila Kunis for taking a day off from the pitch perfect pregnancy wear to relax in real people clothes. And no, that is not a back-handed compliment. It's hard enough being prego in the hot, hot heat of summer. The Lucy star and the Family Guy voicer found two ways to cover their ever-growing bumps with two of the season's hottest trends. So who wins? The overalls over all that baby or the boho belly dancer getup? We're having trouble making a call on ScarJo's fashion because we're too obsessed with her perfect new 'do. It's making us forget the fact that the scene stealer is essentially wearing a black sack with leg holes and straps. And yet the »
With only a few weeks left before she's set to give birth, Scarlett Johansson made a huge change in her life. Or at least in her hairstyle.
The actress debuted a new short cut on Tuesday that lies somewhere between pixie and bob. Additionally, Johansson got rid of her natural dark blonde coloring in favor of a shade we can only describe as radioactive straw.

Scarlett Johansson chopped off her hair. The pregnant star is now rocking a bowl haircut. Beyoncé may or may not have have been responding to breakup rumors with this Instagram photo.

Scarlett Johansson debuted a new short hairdo while taking a walk with her fiancé Romain Dauriac in New York City on Tuesday.
Scarlett Johansson's New Hairdo
Johansson, 29, pregnant with her first child with Dauriac, recently opted to chop off her longer locks for a cropped blond look. For her outing with her husband-to-be, Johansson showed off her growing baby bump in a pair of black overalls over a plain white t-shirt. Holding Johansson’s hand, Dauriac wore a short sleeved geometric sweater with dark tan shorts and a matching hat.
When Johansson and Dauriac were photographed a couple of months ago at Princess Florence Von Preussen and James Tollemache’s wedding in England, Johansson’s hair had a much different style. Her shoulder length hair had an orange hue and was slicked back for the nuptials.
With her new ‘do and the impending birth of her first child, Johansson »
Tuesday night means Best Shot. This week we're looking at Ingmar Bergman's biggest success stateside both at the box office and with Oscar voters. If Cries and Whispers is not quite his most famous classic today, it remains one of the true essentials within his celebrated filmography. This mysterious and utterly gorgeous film won Bergman's longtime Dp Sven Nykvist the first of his two Oscars for best cinematography. It concerns three sisters, one of whom is dying, and the family's maid. Naturally it's very depressing. But great art always transcends.
If you're running late with your choice for Best Shot, take heart and finish watching. My own entry in this "best shot" party will be up tomorrow so yours can be too. I have a good excuse. Today I finalized all the prep work for both the '73 Smackdown festivities (running from Thursday to Saturday here) and all the »

Scarlett Johansson's due date may be quickly approaching. But the actress's plans to get married appear to be moving at a much slower pace. "She is telling friends that she is not getting married until after the baby," a source reveals to E! News.

Just last week, the happy couple enjoyed a quiet dinner at Jonathan Morr's new Cherry Izakaya restaurant in New York City. A source tells E! News the pregnant star was snuggling with her fiancé as they enjoyed a tasty meal with close friends. The group had such a great time that their table was the last to leave on opening »

This past weekend, the "Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron" movie peeps, hit up the big 2014 Comic-Con event in San Diego,CA, and served up this new movie pic while they were there.

Scarlett Johansson's baby bump is growing by the day, but that's not what caught our attention when we saw this photo of her out and about with fiancé Romain Dauriac in New York City Tuesday afternoon. Of course the first thing we noticed was that hair! Apparently Scarlett took the plunge and chopped off her hair in favor of an ultra-short pixie cut. Scarlett went for a bob earlier this year, but clearly she wanted something even shorter and more summery. The answer? An ear-length, close-cropped cut. During her city stroll with Romain, Scarlett sported a white tee, baggy black overalls and silver-rimmed shades. Scarlett has kept a relatively low profile since the »
Disney has been putting a lot of effort into creating an enticing ensemble for their live-action re-imagination of The Jungle Book. The latest addition to the cast is a pair of heralded and established performers. Academy Award winner Christopher Walken (The Deer Hunter) has signed on along with Giancarlo Esposito, who earned an Emmy nomination for his work as Gus Fring on the highly-acclaimed TV drama Breaking Bad. Director Jon Favreau has pulled together an incredible cast that not only includes Christopher Walken and Giancarlo Esposito, but also Scarlett Johansson, Idris Elba, Lupita Nyong'o, Ben Kingsley and newcomer Neel Sethi. Disney first adapted Rudyard Kipling's novel about a boy raised in the jungle back in 1967, as a cartoon musical. Favreau's version will replace the hand-drawn animals for computer-generated ones, who will likely have a photo-realistic look. Only Neel Sethi will appear in the movie in the flesh, as he »

This weekend, Luc Besson’s Lucy topped the box office with more success than expected. You might say that the film performed above its potential. Coincidentally, the film is about a woman (Scarlett Johansson) who, through an unexpected side effect of being a drug mule, was able to access the full potential of her brain. This led her to various super powers, including being a genius in mathematical calculations, having the ability to diagnose medical conditions by hugging someone and controlling radio waves with her mind. The film rests on the belief that human beings only use about 10 percent of their brain’s full potential, and the drugs that leaked into Lucy’s system helped unlock the other 90 percent. It’s not the first time this theory has been brought to the silver screen. Bradley Cooper got similar powers in the 2011 film Limitless. Both the 90s cheese-fest The Lawnmower Man and the more down-to-earth 70s drama Charley »

After Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes ruled over the Us box-office for two weekends running it was about time someone challenged them for the number one spot. Its competitors were more than worthy but there could only be one winner…
Luc Besson’s latest outing Lucy saw off Brett Ratner’s Hercules by more than $15 million. Lucy, starring Scarlett Johansson as the telepathic title character, opened in 3,173 cinemas across the country, earning around $44 million. Meanwhile, Hercules, featuring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson as the mythical legend, opened in 3,595 cinemas and raked in $29 million. To add insult to injury, Lucy cost $40 million throughout its production, while her heavily CGI-ed competition cost around $100 million – ouch! You can read our Hercules review here.
Here’s the Us top five from last weekend:
