When Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters next year, fans will get to see two different aspects of Andy Serkis' work. The actor/motion capture artist has an on-screen role in the Marvel Phase Two sequel, and while he was briefly spotted in the official trailer released last month, it still isn't clear who he is playing. He also worked on the motion capture aspects of the sequel, through his company The Imaginarium. The actor recently shed new light on his Mo-Cap work for the sequel in an interview with Empire. Take a look at what he had to say about developing the look of Ultron, before James Spader signed on.
"We did some work on Ultron. On the development of Ultron before James Spader came on board. In terms of movement styles: was he gonna be human-like? Was he going to be robot-like? So we worked with a bunch of different people, »

Andy Serkis is best known for his motion capture roles, such as Gollum in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, Kong in King Kong and Caesar in Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Most recently, Serkis has been brought on board Avengers: Age of Ultron to help the cast with motion capture through his studio Imaginarium. Serkis also has a live action role in the film, with speculation suggesting that he is playing the Black Panther villain Ulysses Klaw, but his main responsibility was working with James Spader and Mark Ruffalo on their motion capture work as Ultron and The Hulk.

The next solo "Thor" movie in the 'Marvel Cinematic Universe", titled "Thor: Ragnarok", will see the return of Chris Hemsworth as 'Thor' and Tom Hiddleston as 'Loki', on a quest to save 'Asgard' from an apocalyptic event called 'Ragnarok', stoked by the fire demon 'Surtur':
According to other reports, 'Amora' the 'Enchantress' and the executioner 'Scourge' will also appear in the new film, with Enchantress as a love interest for Loki. 'Balder' and 'Beta Ray Bill' will appear and partner with Thor to defeat Surtur.
"...'The Tree of Yggdrasil' will be the start of 'Ragnarok'. Loki may cause Ragnarok by disturbing Surtur the fire demon, and frame Thor by lying to 'Asgardians' to think that Thor had killed his father 'Odin'.

Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky have their hands full! The actor, 31, and the actress, 38, are parents to daughter India, 2, and twin sons Tristan and Sasha, 8 months. On Monday, Pataky announced that they've added a "new family member"—a "cute" puppy! The Fast & Furious 6 star hasn't revealed the dog's name, although she did share a picture on Instagram. The family's new addition arrives just after Hemsworth was named People's "Sexiest Man Alive." While Pataky certainly agrees with the publication's assessment, she'll likely give Hemsworth grief for it, too. The couple met through friends in 2010 and wed that December. "You just »
As if Chris Hemsworth could get any sexier. People's reigning Sexiest Man Alive is now the dad to a puppy, supporting the, ahem, scientific theory that there is nothing more attractive than a hot guy and an adorable dog. Wife Elsa Pataky announced the news on Instagram Monday, writing, "Our new family member." In addition to attempting to upstage Hemsworth's cuteness, the canine addition can also count on plenty of playtime: The couple are parents to daughter India Rose, 2½, and twin boys Tristan and Sasha, 8 months. When People crowned Hemsworth, 31, Sexiest Man Alive, he said, "I think you've bought me »

Woody Harrelson is not one to jump to conclusions about two people who happen to have the same last name. In a Hunger Games press junket interview from last year that's now going viral, Harrelson is shocked when the interviewer informs him that actors Liam Hemsworth and Chris Hemsworth are related. "I honestly never put that together," Harrelson tells the interviewer as his Mockingjay co-star Liam, who is sitting beside him, cracks up. Read more How Long Would You Survive in the Hunger Games?

People unveiled its annual Sexiest Man Alive cover this week, bestowing the honor upon living, breathing Ken doll, Chris Hemsworth. The Australian actor has played Thor on the big screen, has muscles in places we didn’t know existed, and has the kind of pleasant face for the photos that come with picture frames. But he’s far from the sexiest man alive.
If there was any justice in this world the title would go to Joe Manganiello. The former True Blood star is a fitness fanatic, and previously stripped down on screen in Magic Mike. (His character is named “Big Dick Richie” for crying out loud! What more do you want?!) Luckily Manganiello is reprising his role in the 2015 sequel Magic Mike Xxl, so we’ll have ample opportunity to appreciate his fine form. And of course, there’s always next year. Feast your eyes on »

This week, Chris Hemsworth was named People magazine's sexiest man alive for 2014, and we have the photographic proof that this superhero stud is worthy of the title. Whether he is showing off his doting-dad side while hanging out with wife Elsa Pataky and their three children, India, Sasha, and Tristan; suiting up for a big premiere; or showing off his Thor abs during a surfing session with his brothers, Luke and Liam Hemsworth, Chris is sexy no matter what he does. Keep reading for his hottest moments, ever. »
The beginning of the end is nigh for Hunger Games fans – Mockingjay: Part 1 is out in cinemas now, and for our money it's the best in the series yet.
Fans of Suzanne Collins' book trilogy and the Lionsgate adaptations are about as dedicated as they come, as we discovered earlier this month at the film's world premiere in London.
But we've set ourselves the challenge of uncovering a few tidbits that might not be widely known. Below are 17 things you probably never knew about The Hunger Games.
1. The three-fingered salute has become iconic for Hunger Games fans, first seen as a gesture of solidarity in District 12 and later adopted by Katniss as a revolutionary gesture. But its significance reached new levels this year when the salute was adopted as a form of silent resistance by protestors in Thailand this year, and subsequently banned by the military.

Now this is exactly the kind of hilarity we expect from Woody Harrelson! Back in November 2013, Harrelson and his Hunger Games co-star Liam Hemsworth were doing a press interview for Catching Fire. During the sit-down, Woody had a realization that blew his mind. As it turns out, Woody had no idea that Liam's brother was the one and only Chris Hemsworth (seriously!). "Jesus, I never got that he was your brother," Woody says in a video from the interview that started to go viral this week. "You didn't get that?" Liam replies in disbelief before bursting out with laughter. "Until just now. And you do have the same last name, now that I think about it," Woody smiles. "Are you »
Hey, to each his own. Stephen Colbert took on one of the hotter topics roiling the nation on yesterday's Colbert Report (only 12 episodes left, hiccup, sob...), adding the "declining standards of sexiness" to his latest ThreatDown. His case in point? Chris Hemsworth being named People's Sexiest Man Alive for 2014. While the rather inconsequential decision (or "monumental burden" the magazine tasks itself with every year) seemed to prove even less controversial than usual this time (we certainly didn't have much to quibble with), Colbert apparently had his heart set on a Matthew McConaughey repeat. "This year, People magazine has sullied its reputation as »
This has been a big week for Jimmy Kimmel. On Tuesday, ABC's late-night host announced People's Sexiest Man Alive, the hunky Chris Hemsworth. And now he's hanging out with one of the most adorable bands in the business. One Direction stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday to help the host take the cutest selfie ever. And oh boy, did they deliver. The boy band, who recently released their fourth album, posed for the shot in feather boas and funny hats, surrounded by kittens, little kids in tutus, Boo the Pomeranian and a mini "unicorn." Shortly after the super-sweet shot was taken, »

I guess it comes down to a simple choice, really. Get busy living or get busy dying.
The Shawshank Redemption celebrated its 20th anniversary this year, and to mark the occasion stars Tim Robbins, Morgan Freeman and director Frank Darabont reunited for a special Academy screening of the film this week.
Digital Spy goes then and now with the cast of the beloved drama to find out what happened to them in the years since Shawshank's original release.
Tim Robbins (Andy Dufresne)
Already a well-established and respected actor by the time he won the role of Andy Dufresne, Tim Robbins saw his career surge in the wake of Shawshank. He bagged the role after Kevin Costner, Tom Hanks and Brad Pitt turned it down, but their loss was his gain.
Earlier this week, it was revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live that Thor star Chris Hemsworth earned the title of People's 2014 Sexiest Man Alive, and whether you agree with the choice -- or think that someone else from a long list of sexy men should have been given the title -- it's clear that the cast of Horrible Bosses 2 were voting for one of their own.
The night Kimmel announced Hemsworth would be gracing the cover of People's iconic issue, Horrible Bosses 2 star Jason Bateman was Kimmel's guest as well, and he wasn't thrilled that it his face wasn't gracing the cover of the magazine.
