As expected, John Travolta has finalized a deal to play John Gotti Sr., the New York mobster known alternately as the Teflon Don and the Dapper Don, in the independent film 'Gotti: Three Generations.' Nick Cassavetes will direct from a screenplay by Leo Rossi that focuses on the relationship between John Gotti Sr., the head of the Gambino crime family, and his son John Gotti Jr., who took over the family business for his father. Gotti Jr. has given his blessing to the project and plans to join the producers, Travolta and Cassavetes at a press conference on April 12 at the Sheraton New York Hotel. A deal no one can refuse.

We're not quite sure what to make of 'Thor,' the Marvel Comic's hero that Kenneth Branagh is bringing to the big screen May 6. Is it camp? Serious? A little of both? Take a look at this clip, released Wednesday, that features Thor (Chris Hemsworth) just after he's fallen from Asgard to Earth, screaming at the heavens while a disbelieving Natalie Portman, Stellan Skarsgård and Kat Denning try to figure things out. Hammered indeed!
