"Thor" brought all of its signature lightning to bear upon moviegoers this weekend, lighting up the box office with an impressive $66 million debut. Though some had their issues with Marvel's latest superhero release, many of the actors and writers lurking about Twitter-Wood expressed their overall satisfaction with the Asgardian adventure.
While it was "Thor" that dominated the box office, Mother's Day took plenty of deserved attention for itself. Several Hollywood players were celebrating the holiday for themselves, while others offered some dirty (but good-natured) jokes instead of well-wishes.
Plus, who didn't much care for "The Beaver"? The answer to that and more rests past the jump.

Whosoever holds this movie ticket, if he be worthy, shall see the power of "Thor." Moviegoers nationwide are getting ready for Marvel Studios' next big superhero endeavor, out in theaters today, and the fans lurking about Hollywood are coming out of the woodwork as well.
In other news, last night's episode of "Community" thrust the gang back into the middle of paintball warfare, though one "Lost" star is taking the game a bit too seriously. In case you missed the ep, one of the show's actresses has you covered. Plus, find out how some of your favorite stars partied down on Cinco de Mayo yesterday!

Charlie Sheen is a Vatican warlock assassin with fire-breathing fists and a neverending #winning streak. You know this. But did you know that he cooks, too?
Sheen's days on "Two and a Half Men" are over, but the irrepressible actor has found a new entertainment outlet in the form of a cooking show on Funny or Die. Want to learn how to cook a steak the Charlie Sheen way? Of course you do—but you'll need a serious supply of tiger blood, jaguar tears and assassin ancestry to get the recipe juuust right.
There's more going on in the movie world today, including a potential new Guillermo del Toro project and a serious "James Bond" rumor. Get all the news you could ask for past the jump!
Lots of posters in the Twitter-Wood feed seemed to be shocked about one thing or another today, whether it was Michael Ian Black reacting to news of Natalie Portman's pregnancy or David Spade commenting on Amber Portwood's domestic battery charge.
Meanwhile, Paul Feig didn't seem shocked about his problems flying out of JFK yesterday so much as he was concerned with figuring out alternative means to get to London, Judd Apatow was afraid of how "Rabbit Hole" might make him feel, and Omar Doom likely frightened some people with the money he's been trying to use.

I try to keep Twitter-Wood chiefly focused on movies-related tweets, but today Quinton Aaron of "The Blind Side" post a pic from his first week shooting on "One Tree Hill" and Gillian Jacobs got up close and personal with her favorite bathroom door on the "Community" set, so certain allowances had to be made.
Outside of TV Land, Rose McGowan reacted to insinuations that people out there are dying from attempting to strap guns to their legs, while Danny DeVito offered advice about weed and pets, and Brian Lynch polled his followers with an important question related to Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson's breakup. See what he asked down below, along with what Kat Dennings has been dreaming about lately.

You definitely haven't seen Christian Serratos in the "Twilight" series wearing the kind of makeup she put on for a Black Keys video in her feed this week. She and Danny Masterson both sported some new looks and posted pics.
The big trending topic in international news today, though, was WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange getting granted bail in London, where Michael Moore stepped in and got personally involved. His reaction to the situation and a roundup of Golden Globe nomination chatter have been retweeted for you after the jump.

This was a banner year for Twitter-Wood Halloween costume photos. In fact, that's about all that anyone was posting in our feed last night, with Shaq showing up in drag, "Eclipse" actor BooBoo Stewart punching his mom and his co-star Jodelle Ferland getting suited up as Katniss Everdeen from Suzanne Collins' "The Hunger Games" books.
There were all kinds of couples costumes in the feed, too. Eliza Dushku played Lois Lane for Rick Fox, who went as Superman; Seth Green let his inner Harry Potter geek shine, and Ice-T got a little mad. Check out links to all the TwitPic posts after the jump.

Damon Lindelof has voiced his opinions on the "American Idol" judge lineup before, and this week's announcement that Jennifer Lopez or Steven Tyler would be replacing Simon Cowell on the show didn't inspire a flattering comparison from him. One new face on last night's "Glee" season premiere, meanwhile, did draw a compliment from Virginia Madsen.
In other tweets, Milla Jovovich shared a photo of her dress for "The Three Musketeers," while Seth Green had some fierce words for another Twitter user about his wife. All of this drama was accompanied by a goodbye tweet from Paris Hilton addressed to her Asian fans when she was forced to leave Japan prematurely. You can find out who Green was talking, as well as what Wes Craven had to say about wrapping "Scream 4."

Someone finally stood up in Twitter-Wood Tuesday to counter Brett Ratner's rave reviews of "Catfish." You'll have to read on down to find out who it was, but the Monday-Tuesday window in our feed turned out to be a popular one for the critics to show up.
The first episode of the new "Hawaii Five-0" series caught some attention and at least one comparison to "Con Air," while Bristol Palin had fellow flyers clamoring to watch "Dancing With the Stars" at the airport where Patton Oswalt was hanging out. Check out what he thought about that, who wished Bill Murray a happy birthday and who's been getting prepped in case they ever make a Shake Weight movie after the jump.

Michael Ian Black may not work for the U.S. government, but if he did, he knows what he would want to name the next hurricane that shows up, and he thinks that Hurricane Earl is far too tame of a title. Marlon Wayans had disasters on his mind, too, and sent some sleepless Twitter love out to Pakistan and the miners trapped in Chile.
In photo tweets, horror ruled today. Eli Roth shared a "Last Exorcism" party picture, and Michael McKean offered up a make-up shot that's not for the faint of heart. Have a look down below where you'll see which "Eclipse" actor scored a ticket to the U.S. Open, what Dane Cook thinks about "Dancing with the Stars" and how Jon Favreau spends his lunch breaks.
