A new trailer for Kenneth Branagh’s live action adaptation of the Marvel’s Thor has hit the web. The action epic stars Chris Hemsworth as the titular Norse god, robbed of his power and cast down to Earth by his father Odin. The film also stars Anthony Hopkins as Odin, and Natalie Portman as his love interest, Jane Foster. See the trailer below.
This new trailer features quite a bit of material not covered in the previous trailers, TV spots or sizzle reels. We’re still a little skeptical about the whole venture, but this trailer has sold us a little more on the idea. Let’s just hope that Thor doesn’t suffer from Iron Man 2-itis, and become nothing more than a setup for Marvel’s mega tentpole Avengers film.
