Thor poster introduces Marvel’s “God of Thunder”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Audiences have had to endure a serious dry spell at the box office this year. No picture has really stood up and grabbed the collective attention of the multiplex-wandering public. Sure, this weekend’s one-two punch of “Rango” and “The Adjustment Bureau” should entertain. But I think it’s time to bring on the summer blockbuster season.

It will be here soon enough, kicking off on May 6 when Paramount and Marvel unleash “Thor,” the God of Thunder. Chris Hemsworth stars as the Norse god, who is banished to earth where he falls for gorgeous mortal (and Oscar winner) Natalie Portman. Kenneth Branagh directs the superhero origin story, which of course will build toward “Captain America” and, later, “The Avengers.”

Today, we get a new “Thor” poster. Simple. Fiery red. Powerful. It introduces us to “The God of Thunder,” and continues to set the stage for what we hope is an epic, summer-movie battle.

The poster is below. We’ve also included a clip ti the most recent “Thor” trailer. It all begins on May 6. Here we go!
