Maybe that’s why the camera was straight.
Not enough memorable action sequences to make up for the contrived storyline.
There’s an old Hollywood adage: “when you’re planning a sequel to a movie that hasn’t come out yet, the last person you tell is the movie’s director.”
These preview clips show us that Thor has a few key weaknesses: women with tasers, large security guards and sleepy medicine.
It takes Thor a surprisingly long time to knock out a security guard.
Thor has fought monsters, mutants and supervillains. In this clip, we see what kind of incredible firepower it takes to bring down the Thunder God… namely, a taser.
Excited to see Thor in 3D? How about Blur-O-Vision? New pics from the Kenneth Brannaugh directed movie are low on image quality, high on image cool-ity.
Maybe Thor vs. The Green Hornet would be a pretty one-sided street fight, but their respective marketing teams have released competitively badass new movie posters.
Marvel has dropped the new trailer for Thor after debuting the Spawn-esque poster earlier today. It stars Chris Hemsworth as the superhero whose weapon of choice is a heavy-ass hammer. Anthony Hopkins plays Odin/Steam Punk Santa.
Chris Hemsworth dresses up like Spawn for the Thor poster.
If a superhero is going to have a mentor, it should be someone major like Brando or The Dude. Sir Anthony Hopkins is another good one. Playing Odin in the big movie version of Thor, Sir Anthony enjoyed messing with beefy Chris Hemsworth.
“I’m glad I’m not young anymore because you see their insecurities and I always joke along with them,” Hopkins said while he was promoting the Woody Allen comedy You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger. “I say things like, ‘Is that the way you’re going to play it?’ Chris and I got to know each other but he was looking nervous and I said, ‘Oh, is that the way you’re going to play it?’ He said, ‘Yeah, is it okay?’ I said, ‘Well, it’s your career.’’

The LA Times has premiered a new pic of the Hall Of Asgard from Marvel's big-screen Thor. In the photo, we see Thor kneeling before Odin as Loki, Frigga, Fandal the Dashing, and Hogun the Grim look on. I don't want to be blasphemous just in case there is a God and he's played by Anthony Hopkins, but this is the Hall Of Asgard? It looks more like the set for a porno awards show. I haven't heard of any plans to have Ron Jeremy accept a Lifetime Achievement Award in the film, but maybe Kenneth Branagh will include that after the credits or as a DVD Easter Egg.
"Entertainment Tonight" visited the set of Marvel's Thor and got some facetime with Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman as they flirt up a storm. It's like seriously, dude. You and your c-blocking camera crew should get out of there and give those two some privacy. On second thought, leave the camera. As far as "ET" videos go, this one's kind of hard-hitting. It even shows some restraint (it takes them a full three minutes and nineteen seconds to discuss Chris Hemsworth's workout regimine). In addition; we get a glimpse of Sir Anthony Hopkins as Odin, and Hemsworth fesses up to his "Dancing With The Stars" roots. Really? He was on "Dancing With The Stars?" Suddenly this Kim Kardashian as Tomb Raider rumor doesn't sound so far-fetched.Check it out after the jump…
