With a new trailer for Thor: The Dark World just around the corner -- and just a few mere Earth months standing between us and the Asgardian legend's next big-screen adventure -- now seems like the perfect time to check in with hammer-wielding star Chris Hemsworth and see what he can tell us about what to expect from the Thor sequel.

Filmmaking is an intensely collaborative process, fraught with creative peril at every step, and even the surest-seeming projects can go irreparably awry at any one of a thousand different steps of the journey from pitch to screen. All that being said, Disney is basically shooting fish in a barrel with 'Muppets Most Wanted'; the franchise's fanbase is still riding a euphoric high after the characters' long-overdue return in 2011's 'The Muppets,' and it's going to be difficult for anything short of a total disaster to put a major dent in it.

The fans wanted him back. J.J. Abrams wanted him back. He said publicly he wanted to come back. Surprise! Composer John Williams is back in the Star Wars fold, where he'll be providing the score for the franchise's upcoming seventh installment.

At least in theory, Christmas movies don't come much more Christmas-y than a family-friendly drama starring Tom Hanks as Walt Disney -- and even if Christmas movies aren't your thing, the first trailer for Saving Mr. Banks makes a pretty persuasive argument for America's favorite actor as the guy who created the Happiest Place on Earth.

America has spoken, and it really isn't all that interested in seeing Disney's take on The Lone Ranger -- which is kind of a big deal for the studio's bottom line, seeing as how director Gore Verbinski reportedly spent $250 million even before the major marketing campaign kicked in.

For awhile, it looked like Gore Verbinski's The Lone Ranger wasn't even going to be made, but now that the Disney-backed revisionist take on the classic Western -- starring Armie Hammer as the titular vigilante and Johnny Depp as his Native American sidekick Tonto -- is readying its arrival this weekend, talk is already turning to sequels.

It's exquisitely appropriate that Monsters University is set in a school, because anyone who's had the misfortune of moving up through the grades after an exceptional sibling can understand the frustration the folks at Pixar must have felt every time they've released a new movie during the post-Toy Story 3 era.

This week promises two very different films, both of which have been eagerly anticipated by their respective audiences—coming out today is the latest from Disney and Pixar, as well as a zombie movie based on a book that jump-started the recent zombie revival (no pun intended).
