Japanese trailer for THOR

How does one say "by the Hammer of Mjolnir!" in Japanese?

Paramount has released a Japanese trailer for THOR (or MIGHTY THOR as is will be known there) as the film will see its stateside release on May 6th, before striking Japan like lightning on July 1st. It's slightly more badass and slightly less vaudevillian than that French trailer. Strangely enough, the studio has replaced Thor's hammer with a samurai sword to be more culturally accurate. Actually, that's not true.

What it does feature is a lot more of Hogun (played by Japanese actor Tadanobu Asano) as well as a good bit of new footage, peaking my interest just slightly more on a film that I'm still skeptical about. I guess we shall see as Thor lays down the law and his hammer (samurai sword) next week.

Check out the trailer after the break.

Is it just me, or do international trailers always seem to be a bit more well put-together than others?
