Rush

The international trailer for Ron Howard's Formula 1 racing drama "Rush" shows that the movie is going to star much more than just Chris Hemsworth. This movie is going to put audience members right in the midst of what look like some of the most intense racing scenes to hit the big screen, and it looks like it's going to do so beautifully.

The newly released video, which can be found after the jump, focuses primarily on the rivalry between Hemsworth's James Hunt and Daniel Brühl's Niki Lauda, but it's the gorgeous cinematography that really captured our attention. It's clear that Howard wanted to make a movie about Formula 1 racing that made it feel like viewers are a part of that world. Trailers aren't always indicative of a film's final product, but this one certainly has us excited.

Chris Hemsworth

While Steven Spielberg tries to figure out "Robopocalypse," his would-be leading man, Chris Hemsworth, may have found a project from another iconic director to keep himself busy.

According to Variety, Hemsworth is attached to a potential Michael Mann project set up at blockbuster-maker Legendary.

There essentially no details about the script other than a vague tip that the film "takes place in a world of cyber threats and attacks," which doesn't exactly clear things up. The script does, however, come from writer Morgan Davis Foehl, who's at work on a screenplay for an upcoming adaptation of the hit video game series "Mass Effect."

The combination of Legendary, Mann, and Hemsworth hints that whatever this thing is it will be fairly large, so expect to hear a lot more about the project if it comes to fruition.

Red Dawn

With the remake of "Red Dawn" hitting theaters tomorrow, it's probably a good time to figure out whether you're going to enlist for another tour of duty with The Wolverines. Perhaps the best way to figure out if you want to enjoy the latest action offering would be to check out the first eight minutes of the film, courtesy of the folks over at io9.

The preview gives us a look at a happy small Colorado town…before the North Koreans invade, that is. The remake of "Red Dawn" stars Chris Hemsworth, Adrianne Palicki, and Josh Hutcherson as a band of teenagers who escape into the woods and mount a guerilla-style resistance to the new invaders.

Head over to io9 to check out the first eight minutes of "Red Dawn."

Chris Hemsworth

Chris Hemsworth was "Thor," the "Huntsman" and an ill-fated visitor to a "Cabin in the Woods" this year, but he's not done yet. The actor is busy lining up even more projects to tackle next, and he's honing in on two in particular.

The Film Stage is reporting that Hemsworth is considering Stephen Gaghan's "Candy Shop" and a Jeremy Weintraub-produced Steve McQueen biopic (not to be confused with the one Jeremy Renner is working on). Interestingly enough, the biopic, currently titled "Triumph AKA 40 Summers Ago," also has his little brother Liam Hemsworth attached.

Red Dawn

With Marvel firmly at Disney and DC firmly at Warner Bros., the odds of ever seeing Thor and Wonder Woman in a movie together are slim to none. So here's a compromise: "Red Dawn," the upcoming action movie remake starring the God of Thunder himself, Chris Hemsworth, and the woman who was nearly the small screen's new Wonder Woman, Adrianne Palicki.

MTV News has an exclusive clip from the "Red Dawn" remake featuring Hemsworth and Palicki's characters meeting for the first time. As is befitting two of Hollywood's finest specimens, the chemistry between Hemsworth and Palicki is practically palpable, making it all the more believable when a young Josh Hutcherson more or less swoons when the "Friday Night Lights" actress comes calling for a pair of French fries.

Hemsworth

By Carolyn Amurao

A movie franchise of Vince Flynn's bestselling novel series is finally kicking off with "American Assassin," Deadline reports, and Aussie actor Chris Hemsworth is sought to play terrorist hunter Mitch Rapp. CBS Films has offered $10 million to Hemsworth, who has recently starred in big titles such as "Thor," "The Avengers," and "Snow White and the Huntsman." Action star Bruce Willis could also join the cast as Rapp’s CIA mentor.

The film will be directed by Jeffrey Nachmanoff, who co-wrote "The Day After Tomorrow" and has directed episodes of Showtime's "Homeland." The most recent script draft was written by Mike Finch ("Predators"), while the CBS Films' Lorenzo di Bonaventura ("Transformers") and Nick Wechsler are onboard as producers.

Red Dawn

If you've seen the original 1984 "Red Dawn," you probably know it as an over-the-top, darker-than-you'd-think anti-Commie wonder. The remake starring Josh Peck, Chris Hemsworth, and Adrianne Palicki sticks pretty close to the original set-up, but adds a more modern, more Michael Bay-inspired action aesthetic.

The first clip from "Red Dawn" demonstrates that perfectly, showing us the more explosive version of the North Korean invasion, which used to be a Chinese invasion until that no longer made sense economically.

Check out the clip after the jump!

Robopocalypse

By Colin Greten

The adaptation of Daniel H. Wilson's science fiction novel, "Robopocalypse" is not set to be released until 2014, but the film is already starting to get attention. Steven Spielberg has already signed on to direct and produce the DreamWorks feature, in which robots take over a computer-dependent society in the near future.

Film executive Tom Rothman has also been announced as a producer by a DreamWorks press release yesterday (via Deadline), after he resigned as Fox Filmed Entertainment's Co-Chairman and CEO last week.

Although Rothman is a big name in the Hollywood ranks, news that has fans excited is the rumor that Anne Hathaway is now the frontrunner to play the female lead alongside the already attached Chris Hemsworth ("Thor").

SWATH

Could the planned sequel for "Snow White and the Huntsman" have lost its Snow White?

If new reports are to be believed, that seems to be the case. Following the affair scandal between leading lady Kristen Stewart and director Rupert Sanders, it's been unclear how Universal Studios would move forward with the film's follow-up. The Hollywood Reporter is claiming that the answer is actually quite simple: the sequel will focus on The Huntsman instead of Snow White.
