5.6-5.8.2011: What To Watch – Theater Edition

It’s the beginning of the summer blockbuster season (although the summer season technically starts on June 21st) with the release of the much anticipated Thor.  This movie is projected to be #1 at the box office with last week’s #1, Fast Five, to finish at a very distant second.  Two movies joining the god of thunder at the theaters are Haunted 3D, India’s first 3D film, and I’m Not Jesus Mommy, a Sci-Fi thriller.

Thor  Starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Stellan Skarsgård, Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins.  Directed by Kenneth Branagh.

The movie is based on the Marvel Comics Thor created by editor-plotter Stan Lee, scripter Larry Lieber and penciller Jack Kirby.  The superhero debuted in August 1962 in issue #83 of Journey into Mystery.  In the decades following, The Mighty Thor was an ongoing series and limited series plus a part of The Avengers.  Audiences received their first hint of Thor on film at the end of 2010’s Iron Man 2 with his weapon of choice, the hammer, protruding from the desert sand.

Synopsis:  The epic adventure Thor spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the cosmic realm of Asgard.  At the center of the story is The Mighty Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war.  As a result, Thor is banished to Earth where he is forced to live among humans.  When the most dangerous villain of his world sends its darkest forces to invade Earth, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero. synopsis courtesy of Marvel
