I like movie trailers. So sue me.

Trailers for Epic Summer Movies: Part 1: “Thor”

with one comment

Two trailers for two of next summer’s biggest movies debuted within a day of each other, so instead of my one usual post, I’m going to write up two separate posts so I can examine each trailer individually. First up: Marvel’s Thor.

Rain, lightning (not shown), and giant stone letters. It’s a trifecta of title card tremendousness.

Now, I’m not familiar with any of the comic book universes, so I don’t really know exactly what’s going on here, and I’m not too sure just what the hammer of Thor is all about–maybe a comic book aficionado could tell me? 🙂

Luckily, Paramount provides this synopsis for all us laypersons. (or is it laypeople?)

Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment present the epic adventure, “Thor,” which spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth), a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth by his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and is forced to live among humans. A beautiful, young scientist, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), has a profound effect on Thor, as she ultimately becomes his first love. It’s while here on Earth that Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.

Works for me, I guess. The trailer makes it look better. Natalie Portman’s nice, and I like the idea of an ancient warrior being exiled to modern times by his father.

Enough babble. Watch the trailer for Thor, and keep an eye out for my next review of another epic summer movie.
