Opening in U.S. cinemas this weekend is Thor
, the new Kenneth Branagh film based on the classic Marvel Comics superhero created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. As we mentioned before
, Paramount Pictures is pulling out all the stops to promote this latest installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and have started the week with ten minutes
of behind-the-scenes footage
from the Thor
production. Naturally the clips contain some manner of spoilers
, which of course terrifies us greatly as we haven't seen the movie yet. Can you watch this for us?
Starring Chris Hemsworth in the title role, Thor
looks like it will be the best Marvel movie yet. As such, we are really looking forward to it and scared to death of having anything cool spoiled. You can imagine that this is completely at odds with our function as journalists and conduits of information about precisely these sorts of things, but sometimes you just have to say no to the press screenings because you know the movie will be better with your bros.
So we thought, maybe you guys could watch these two clips and let us know how egregiously spoilerific they are. We trust you to be straight with us. Thx.
