I like movie trailers. So sue me.

“Thor” Pits a Norse Mythological Superhero Against A GIANT ROBOT

with 2 comments

Here’s a second trailer for Thor, Paramount’s upcoming superhero(?) fantasy movie. Now, as I’ve said before, I’m not a comic book guy, but this trailer–combined with the first one–gives me a good idea as to what the story’s about. From what the trailers show, Thor (played by Chris Hemsworth) is a Norse warrior. He’s strong, but also pretty arrogant–I think he thinks he’s all that and a bag of chips. Unfortunately, he’s, as my eighth grade algebra teacher once said, just the bag of chips. As it turns out, however, this bag of chips might just save the human race.

Anyway, Thor disses his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins), so he gets pretty pissed and he sends Thor to Earth to live amongst us mortals. Odin’s not the type to forgive so easily, so he does what any miffed Norse god would do: send a giant metal robot/walking incinerator, aptly named “Destroyer”, down to Earth to kill us all, and let’s hope Thor can fight him off with his giant hammer.

I put a question mark after “superhero” earlier because, even from this trailer, Thor doesn’t seem like the superhero type. Sure, he has the humongous metal hammer, but what can he use it for other than to bludgeon things to death? Good luck using that on Destroyer, Thor. The only other superpower he really exhibits is the ability to eat a box of Pop-Tarts and not get incredibly sick and still be hungry.

Thor hits theaters on May 6th, in 3D. Watch out for the hammer.

  2. What is a superhero? A man or woman who has special abilites and solves critical problems stopping the bad guys (Batman)he has no “super” powers he’s just really cool. Second the reason I think they(Mavel)went with the story they did is because if you give up all their secrets they won’t have much for a sequel after end credits loki still alive dum,dum,dum they want people to come back. I can’t wait to see what marvel has to offer. Great job keep em’ coming.
