"I will end this." The more I see from this, the better it looks, I can't wait to kick off the summer with Thor. To remind everyone that there are only four weeks left until Marvel's Thor hits theaters and kicks off the comic book movie-filled summer movie season, Paramount has unleashed a bunch of TV spots. There's a lot to to choose from, but I selected the two newest TV spots (from Marvel) that actually make this movie look really, really good. If you want to see even more TV spots, head to TheMovieBox. I just think it looks like it'll be epic and entertaining, from what I'm seeing I think Branagh and Chris Hemsworth have pulled it off.
Watch the first new TV Spot for Marvel's Thor:
Watch the second new TV Spot for Marvel's Thor:
The powerful but arrogant immortal warrior Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is cast out of the fantastic realm of Asgard and sent to live amongst humans on Earth, where he quickly becomes one of their finest defenders.
Marvel's Thor is directed by British actor/director Kenneth Branagh, who previously directed Shakespeare adaptations like Much Ado About Nothing and Hamlet, as well as the films Love's Labour's Lost, The Magic Flute and Sleuth. The script was written by Ashley Miller & Zack Stentz (of Agent Cody Banks, "Fringe") and Don Payne (My Super Ex-Girlfriend, 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer) from a story by J. Michael Straczynski and Mark Protosevich. Paramount is bringing Marvel's Thor to theaters in 3D starting on May 6th this summer.

I can access only the first one. It seems they improve on the visual effects. Much more detailed than the previous trailers. Alex, can you fix the second one. Can't wait for the movie.

can you somehow repost the second clip? It won't play but says the video is private. Or can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong.

It does, awesome! Looks a bit better than the first trailer. Man this is gonna be a good movie! I wonder if at the end of the credits for both Thor and Captain America, they're gonna have a quick scene with Samuel Jackson recruiting for the Avengers?

Cheese. Pure cheese. I don't see how this would not be a flop.

Just to mention that I am watching this movie only because Anthony Hopkins !! .. And because most of the focus are on the CGI : The Visual Effects looks massive but not perfect in this trailers .. using so much particles - fog -smoke and of course lights that hide the actual creatures and characters never been a good idea .. but again it is just a short trailer and no one can give a final thoughts for how it will be in the movie itself ! 😉 After all... All what a movie like this can show is the Visual Effects ... because it is not about drama and speech and even story .. It is about the adventure and action of Thor with his magical power against creatures with massive powers too 😉 .. That is why the CGI must be great and truly I am not so glad having so many companies do the same movie ( but again it is not a law or rule that the movie will be bad ) : * BUF (visual effects) * CEG Media (visual effects) * Digital Domain (visual effects) * Fuel VFX * Luma Pictures (visual effects) * The Base Studio * Third Floor, The (previsualization and postvisualization) Digital Domain have a big name and good work but they too had no power to put ( Tron Legacy ) in the Nomination for Oscar this year .. even with all the hard work they did in all the shots they had in the movie !!! However I wish it will be good ... 😉

Hey Alex, I want to get your opinion or what you think, in this question: do you think Thor in the new movie will levitate/fly? They haven't really shown evidence of it in any of the trailers but in the comics and cartoons he could, cuz obviously, he's not human. What do you think?
