First clip from THOR arrives on Earth
In the interest of expanding my cinematic horizons and toning down my snark about things I do not understand, I bring you the first clip from THOR. Over at Collider, they have the first full-length clip from the upcoming superhero film. Admittedly, I do not have a large basis of knowledge when it comes to the character of Thor. When it comes to superheroes, I like Batman because he is moody and Iron Man because he is drunk and Spider-man because he's now going to be played by Andrew Garfield. I was not a comic book kid. I do not know the intricacies of character progression in the DC and Marvel universes. Of course I am the best person to bring you this clip! I can approach it clear-eyed! Clear-eyed and obscenely confused!
In the minute-long clip, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) lands on Earth. I do know that Thor is not from our planet, so this clip has not confused me as much as I initially expected. Upon landing on Earth, Thor encounters Natalie Portman, Stellan Skarsgard, and Kat Dennings, which pretty much guarantees that Thor will start off thinking that everyone on the planet is ridiculously good-looking. Thor is sort of pissed, everyone else is sort of confused, and I have to say - I really like the look and feel of this clip (I know, I know, it's only a minute). Color me interested! Joke about a hammer I don't understand! Check out the clip after the break. True Thor aficionados, what say you?
THOR opens on May 6.
