From Marvel Studios and Paramount Pictures comes a unique and compelling twist on the Super Hero genre, with the out-of-this-world warrior THOR, debuting on high definition Blu-ray™ 3D, Blu-ray™ and DVD, released by Reliance Home Video.
Called “spectacular” (USA Today), the phenomenal screen debut of the legendary God of Thunder took audiences in theatres by storm, earning more than $440 million at the global box office.
Marvel Studios expands its film universe with a new type of Super Hero: Thor. This epic adventure spans the Marvel Universe, from present day Earth to the 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. Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans as punishment. Once here, 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. Directed by Kenneth Branagh and produced by Kevin Feige, with Alan Fine, Stan Lee,
David Maisel, Patricia Whitcher and Louis D’Esposito serving as executive producers from a screenplay by Ashley Edward Miller & Zack Stentz and Don Payne and a story by J. Michael Straczynski and Mark Protosevich, this fantasy epic stars Australian actor Chris Hemsworth as the god of thunder, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, a young woman who befriends Thor on Earth, Tom Hiddleston as Thor’s evil brother Loki, with Rene Russo as Frigga, the wife of Odin, mother to Thor and Loki, and Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Thor’s father and king of Asgard. Expect to see agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., previously seen in the Iron Man movies, foreshadowing the coming of Marvel’s The Avengers! With stunning visual effects and explosive action sequences, THOR wields outstanding entertainment that the whole family can enjoy.
