Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman in the Thor trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
It feels like the first THOR trailer has been out for a long time, but I forget that the trailer from Comic-con over the summer was really just a bootleg that should have never gotten out. So today we get our first “official” trailer (along with the first official THOR poster) from the upcoming superhero film and it looks pretty decent. I think the most impressive aspect of this film is Chris Hemsworth. I was skeptical at first, but he really looks the part. As for the rest of the trailer, I think director Kenneth Branagh has seemingly done a good job blending the supernatural with the real world. In the Marvel universe, I think Thor is probably the hardest character to make into a good film.
The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston, Rene Russo, Natalie Portman, Stellan Skarsgard, Jaimie Alexander, Ray Stevenson, Idris Elba, Colm Feore, Clark Gregg and Kat Dennings. THOR hits theaters everywhere on May 6th, 2011. Watch the trailer here.
