Film trailer: 'Thor' starring Portman and Hemsworth
Friday 18 February 2011
The second trailer for the upcoming Marvel blockbuster
Thor was released online February 17. Kenneth Branagh directed Chris Hemsworth (
Star Trek), who plays the god of thunder, co-starring with Oscar nominee Natalie Portman.
While the previous trailer showed Thor being cast out of Asgard and interrogated by Shield, this version opens with his mysterious arrival on earth and discovery by a curious yet confused scientist played by Portman.
This superhero epic adventure also stars Anthony Hopkins as Odin, the ruler of Asgard, Stellan Skarsgard ( Angels & Demons), and Kat Dennings ( The 40-Year-Old Virgin) who offers a touch of comic relief, amused that Thor may be a crazy homeless guy with a voracious appetite.
The new footage reveals Loki, the villainous step-brother, who dispatches the ominous Destroyer to annihilate the human race. The mighty Thor must change his reckless ways and wield his powerful hammer against his enemies to save earth - and find love.
Thor hits theaters May 6.
