New Thor Trailer Settles on Earth
02.17.11 by Ryan
Last December, the first trailer debuted online for director Kenneth Branagh's Thor, pleasing a fanboy Jones by offering the first look at the Marvel Comic adaptation. Since then, promotional material on the movie has became scarce, with only a familiar-looking poster, Super Bowl TV trailer, and the announcement that Samuel L. Jackson will, in fact, make a cameo in the movie.
The latest trailer focuses on the Thor's (Chris Hemsworth) time on Earth, after being banned from Asgard by his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins), and being discovered by Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), Professor Andrews (Stellan Skarsgård), and Darcy (Kat Dennings). The second part of the trailer sets up the conflict between Thor and his nemesis, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), and what looks to be a showdown with the giant, metallic Destroyer.
Thor opens May 6 and co-stars Jaimie Alexander, Rene Russo, and Colm Feore.
