This trailer leaves me feeling kind of cold. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed it a good amount. However, it just rubs me the wrong way, and my maximum enjoyment was affected because of it. The CGI looked strange, and I’m not really digging Chris Hemsworth as Thor. He just sounds so…off putting. I’m still looking forward to the film, but by the time the film opens, I hope it is better then this somewhat unremarkable trailer. However, I can see how someone could really like this trailer; it’s pretty well made, and there’s nothing completely wrong with it. I just wasn’t a particular fan of it.
Here’s the trailer, so you can judge for yourself:
Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment present the epic adventure, “Thor,” which spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth), a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth by his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and is forced to live among humans. A beautiful, young scientist, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), has a profound effect on Thor, as she ultimately becomes his first love. It’s while here on Earth that Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.
Thor opens May 6, 2011.
