It's not rare that you see a poster mix-up in a foreign market, where the cover from a DVD of an entirely different movie gets used as the poster for a new movie, but the switcheroo that happened with "Thor: The Dark World" is of a very special variety.
According to a reddit post, this fan poster for the upcoming Marvel sequel ended up in a Shanghai movie theater, most likely pleasing a very specific set of fan fiction writers.

With yesterday's global fan event, the "Hobbit" folks kicked it into publicity override in the run-up to the second film in the fantasy series, "The Desolation of Smaug." The gathering via satellite brought fans in attendance and online 20 new minutes from the new movie, a trailer, and the long-awaited next video blog.
You can check out the third trailer for "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" over at MTV News, but we've got Peter Jackson's newest video blog, which takes a behind-the-scenes look at the ten weeks of pick-ups that took place in the spring and summer.
The reshoots focused on the last two films of the trilogy, and as Jackson explains in the blog, they covered a lot of the most dramatic material in the entire series.
"The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" opens in theaters on December 13.
We've just been handed an urgent and horrifying news story. We need all of you— ugh, you know the rest. Look at these big "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" character posters from Total Film.
The posters come as we are getting more and more eager to see what Ron Burgundy and the Channel 4 news team will be up to when they return in December and hit the Big Apple for the first time.
Check out the rest of the posters, featuring Brian, Champ, and Brick after the jump!
Justin Long has been a busy man lately. That should be pretty evident by the fact that he had to movies to promote when he said down with MTV News' Josh Horowitz this week.
The first, "A Case of You," a film co-written by Long and his brother Christian with Keir O'Donnell, tells the story of a man who molds himself to be the perfect match for the girl he's fallen in love with.
The other is called "Best Man Down," a movie more serious than it's friendly title would have you believe. The day after his wedding, Scott (Long) finds that his best man and best friend Lumpy has died. The film was originally coming to be named after the deceased character, but it was changed recently.
Long explains during the chat how the story of the first movie resonates with him and why the original title of the second might have given people the wrong idea.
Lots of newscasters got into the Halloween spirit yesterday by dressing up for their broadcasts, but no one did it quite as well as Paul Gerke from KIVI in Boise, Idaho. Gerke did one hell of a Ron Burgundy, but dressing up wasn't enough for him.
The sports correspondent delivered his entire report in-character, and simply wowed us with his dedication to the bit.
Check out Gerke's full Halloween report above, and marvel at his luscious mustache and manly bravado. And feel small in comparison, little man. This is what a true hero looks like.
It was never released in mainstream theaters, but Michael Dougherty's "Trick 'r Treat" has become a Halloween classic since its discovery in 2007.
The buzz spread after the film's festival debut, and audiences fell in love with the pint-sized character named Sam, whose burlap sack hood and button eyes were ghoulishly delightful (for a brief moment, anyway … ). Sam appears in the film's four different stories, a throwback to the horror anthologies many audiences devoured as children ("Creepshow" and "Tales from the Crypt" amongst them), to make sure people follow the ancient traditions of Halloween.
Dylan Baker, Anna Paquin, Leslie Bibb, and Brian Cox quickly find out what happens when they don't. "Trick 'r Treat" fans were just alerted to the best news a Halloween junkie could ask for: there's going to be a sequel to Dougherty's film.
"Back to the Future" is just one of those movies that lots of people love. It's probably up there with "Star Wars" as one of the most universally referenced nostalgia movies in pop culture, but we're still suckers for talking about the flaws in Marty McFly's plan to get his parents back together or how time travel actually works.
That's why it's such a joy to listen to Justin Long completely geek out on the 1985 classic. He sat down with MTV News' Josh Horowitz to put his knowledge to the test.
Bonus: Justin Long does one of the best Michael J. Fox impressions you've ever heard.
Check out Justin's killer "Back to the Future" knowledge on the latest episode of After Hours.
Oh, Vin Diesel's Facebook! You magnificent internet joy portal! You truly do spoil us.
Anyone who follows Vin Diesel's art on Facebook knows that today is Tuesday, but on VD's FB, it's never just Tuesday. It's Toretto Tuesday. And Toretto Tuesday brings us goodies from the set of "Fast and Furious 7."
This week's Toretto Tuesday brings us a picture from the set featuring Diesel and Dwayne Johnson, back for a third go. Except this time, they're hanging out in a hospital room. What is going on?!?!
Diesel offered this: "When brother Dwayne steps into the Hobbs role... you can't tell where he ends, or the character begins. Our third consecutive chapter in the saga, and the short hand we've established makes the film that much better each time."
Truth, man. Truth.
"Fast and Furious 7" opens in theaters on July 11, 2014.
No need to worry, Leonardo DiCaprio/Martin Scorsese fans! "The Wolf of Wall Street," a movie that was poised to make a run at the awards circuit next year before delay rumors cropped up, will come out this year afterall, just a little later than we were expecting.
Scorsese's story of 90s-era stock market greed will debut on Christmas Day, just barely making the 2013 cut-off, something that seemed to be up in the air thanks to a reported 3-hour-plus first cut. The movie is now a lean 165 minutes, so thank goodness for those edits.
From the one trailer we've been lucky enough to see, we're thrilled to see everyone involved (McCONAUGHEY!) go completely over the top with the excesses of the era.
Count us in for December 25!

While there may not have been any official "Star Wars VII" casting announcements as of yet, we now have a breakdown of the official "Star Wars VII" production crew. Joining J. J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan, who are currently in the process of writing the screenplay, are director of photography Dan Mindel, sound designer Ben Burtt, production designers Rick Carter and Darren Gilford, special effects supervisor Chris Corbould and, of course, composer John Williams and producer Kathleen Kennedy.
Hopefully, now that this list of crew members is out it won't be long before we get some updates as far as "Star Wars VII" cast members go. Until then, we here at MTV News will just keep speculating as to which Star Wars Expanded Universe characters might be popping up in the new trilogy. Take Ben Skywalker for example, the son of Luke and Mara Jade Skywalker.
