On the same weekend where some incredible real-life news struck U.S. and its allies across the globe, Paramount Pictures and Marvel Studios shot off to a great summer start with the international launch of their next comic adventure Thor. With the film earning an incredible $93 million in its early foreign premiere, it's safe to say that a lot of you foreign Maniacs have already seen the Chris Hemsworth-led tale a week before it strikes theaters in the states. Even if you haven't, the studio is still revealing one last-minute marketing promotion with the release of 10 minutes of behind-the-scene footage to entice those who haven't shelled out their cash. Check it out in the two videos down below and sound off with your thoughts.

The action-adventure also stars Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Rene Russo, Stellan Skarsgard, Jaimie Alexander, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Josh Dallas, Tadanobu Asano, Idris Elba, Clark Gregg, Colm Feore and Samuel L. Jackson. Helmer Kenneth Branagh led the direction, based on a screenplay by Ashley Edward Miller, Zack Stentz and Don Payne.

Plot Concept: 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.

Thor strikes down 3D/2D theaters on May 6, 2011.

On the second video at about 2:20 seconds I thought Christopher Lambert and Keith Richards were working with Ken on this movie...

Watching that alone got me pumped. Midnight Thursday can't get here fast enough. I-Max 3D for my first viewing, then digital 3D, then 2D then rinse and repeat :)

In my younger days, product placement ensured that I'd receive my 7-11 Slurpee in a Thor collector's glass... Now product placement offers forth Kat Dennings. The times may have changed, but the result is equally delicious!!

It struck me as odd that ACDC was tied in with IRON MAN 2, rather than using "Thunderstruck" for THOR, but then I'm not a fan of ACDC so I guess it doesn't matter.

The moments of humour in THOR work well. I think Branagh has all the right tones in all the right moments. I even enjoyed the fleeting glimpse of Clint Barton.....

Branagh was a great choice. I'm up for my third viewing on Thursday, and I am getting pumped for CAP, and X-men, and I even have some hope for the new Ghostrider, especially after seeing "Crank 2" and "Gamer".

You won't be disapointed. Seen it twice already since it was out last week in France and damn, this is a reeeeaaaallly good Marvel movie! The branagh theatrical touch is exquisite and a perfect fit for Thor!

 How would you guys prefer to watch Thor in 3D or regular high def digital?  I ask b/c I actually preferred Avitar in regular high def.  Maybe I just need to get used to 3D, what do you all think?

fhavok 5/4/2011 10:17:19 AM

MROD, I actually saw it once in 3D and once in regulard High def and I prefered the regular version. 3D is sorta unnecessary really, and the colours are way better in high def and given the details of the movie, I believe the high def version is the one that does justice to the movie.
