Thor – The Dark World (Trailer #1) Review
Not the best trailer but the films quite far off so let’s call this one a teaser and praise it for that. Plenty of interesting scenes going on in this trailer, got battles, new characters, new villains, old villains and London for some reason. Easily one of the weirdest starts to a trailer, it starts off with a shot of London, then it goes to a floating truck, and for the first 40 seconds I have no idea what’s going on. Who’s is that voice over in the beginning? I don’t recognize it but I like it. My biggest complaint at this trailer is how scattered and unorganized it is, far more reminiscent of a teaser. Also think there is a massive spoiler going on in this trailer, so massive I think it’s just a tease as it would be unbelievable to show in a trailer. So onto the trailer and my top scenes and don’t forget to leave your comments at the end.
My Score: B+
Marvels “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvels “Thor” and “Marvels The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
Top 8 Scenes
8. A Realistic Valhalla
Less shiny and yet more majestic, the Asgardian home world just looks so much better than in the first film. One of my main reasons for looking forward to this sequel was the new director who had previously worked on Game of Thrones, a series famous for showing a fantasy world in a realistic way. Clearly we get to see this in action with many scenes, but I thought this was noteworthy because it looks really old and new and has this grand scale to it all.
7. Malekith’s Bad Parking
For some undisclosed reason Malekith (I think) is crashing his ship through the grounds of some library in London. It all looks cool but it makes no sense to me. Why does a Dark Elf need a ship, use magic! Why is he crashing some of it into the ground? Drunk off pixie juice?
6. Does Jane Foster Die?
I highly doubt they’d spoil this kind of a scene in a small trailer. My current theory is that Malekith is projecting a vision to Thor of his loves death; this makes the most sense to me because it is right up Malekiths street.
5. First Look – Malekith
First look of the villainous Malekith, this films big baddy or is he. Whilst having half black face half white is the normal depiction of Malekith I think they may have given us a clue as to who truly is in charge in this story. Malekith has in many situations worked with a fire demon called Surtur who is a Thanos type character only more mystical. I think he may be the reason behind Malekith’s half burned face. But that’s only a theory from a nerd (me).
4. THOR ANGRY!
Seems like a deeply emotional loss for the God of thunder, in the trailer it appears to be because of Malekith taking Jane Foster, but I still think that’s a vision so boo hoo Thor. This still reminds me of the glass case of emotions joke from an Avengers Meme, hysterical.
3. Hey look it’s Skrillex
No offense Hiddleston but all you need is the glasses is this scene. Joking aside I do love the scene of Thor asking for Loki’s help, it’s a staple of the comic’s relationship between the two. Loki is a trickster and will always find a way out, but Thor is the hero and will always beat him, what makes it interesting is the game of back and forth which I hope to see in this film. We already get a glimpse of this in the scene as Thor asks for help with a threat and Loki accepts with a smile.
2. Hammer Time
Thor taking out the trash in this epic battle scene that should turn out to be my favourite of the film, however not my favourite still of the scene, notice how the enemies are in full armour and actually look to be from a medieval time. So go Thor and beat those raiders into the ground.
1. Epicenter of War
This still is truly epic! The rain, the battling, Thor’s poses the scenery and mid-air explosions all just amazing in one shot. If it was a bit sharper I’d love to get a poster of that for my room, it just looks so damn good. Also this scene was shot in Bourne Wood, Surrey go Britain. Why is a lot of marvel stuff getting shot over here, this, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers 2?
Well that’s my views. Now what do you think about this newest trailer?
