The machines are taking over, and it’s Chris Hemsworth to the rescue (who else?). Deadline reports Thor himself has landed the highly coveted lead role in Steven Spielberg’s long-gestating adaptation of Daniel H. Wilson’s best-selling sci-fi novel “Robopocalypse.” Wilson’s vision of the ever-popular post-apocalyptic world is one in which the machines that once aided the human race in their everyday lives have taken over. Cars begin to run people over in the street, automated doors trap people inside buildings, and more menacingly, army robots built to do the killing forRead More
