The first TV spot for Thor: The Dark World ran during the premiere of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. It contained some new footage and one particular moment where the God of Thunder gets called on the carpet for never writing, or calling… It’s good stuff and, if you missed it there, you can check it our after the jump.
One of the biggest movies of the year – in terms of grand, epic fun – Thor gets a DVD release that provides one thing I always enjoy [a terrific commentary track by director Kenneth Branagh] but lacks the one thing I was most hoping to see: a promised short feature built around S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Coulson. Turns out that, contrary to promises made, it’s only available on the Blu-ray.
Still, even without it, the DVD release for Thor is still great fun.
Like a lot of movie buffs who’ve mostly enjoyed the transition of Marvel superheroes to film, I was intrigued by the trailers for Thor and turned off by its clumsily designed rash of posters. This behind-the-scenes featurette has won me over. check it out!
James Franco is a weird actor. He’s one of those guys who seems like he’d be cool to hang out and have a beer with, but as an actor always lacked that certain something. With Pineapple Express he seems to hit upon the Sean Penn stoner gimmick which he milks again with the adventure/comedy Your Highness. I don’t know who Chi McBride is or why he’s even starring in a movie, but he and Franco are good together in this.
Well, that it’s for another year. The Oscars® are done – and the show was only ten minutes long! [That’s not a record – I’m certain it came in on time once, a few decades back…]
For the record, James Franco and Anne Hathaway should probably not be asked back to co-host. Franco was surprisingly dead for most of the evening and it’s only because of Hathaway that I didn’t hit mute whenever they were onscreen after the first half-hour.
My thoughts on the show as a whole – and the major awards – follow the jump.
