Why are the crew posters always so much better than the real ones? That thing is AWESOME.

I know people are saying it's a rip off of Tron or He-man whatever have you but I think this poster looks better

Good eye on both counts.

I'm not *entirely* sure the actual poster has the multicolored beam like that, though --- there's the possibility that the terrible resolution on this Instagram or whatever does funky things to the color (i.e., a bad photo of the poster).

But if it is, indeed, a multicolored beam, then it's surely meant to represent the Rainbow Bridge. If Mjolnir becomes the actual gateway between worlds.....wow. Just too cool. Even Thor's best writers never came up with that angle.

The eclipse gets me thinking about a race against time. A few weeks ago, we were discussing rumors about time and even time travel playing a big element in the movie, and that this was why Greenwich was chosen in particular --- i.e., the Prime Meridian. Maybe if the sun's shadow during an eclipse reaches the Prime Meridian by a certain time, Malekith is able to unleash some apocalypse or other (such as Surtur and his fiery friends).

Could also have to do with "descending the universe into darkness" from the synopsis.

could be that he causes a permanent eclipse on Earth to keep it in darkness. In the release from the studio made regarding filming at Butlers Wharf, when they filmed at the River Thames they wanted it at high tide.

Quote:
One of our key locations in the film is the Old Naval College at Greenwich and we have various scenes to film that involve the Thames at high tide, camera boats, and aerial filming from a helicopter. To achieve this, we have to film before the clocks change, and the tides are right, and this has fallen on Sunday 21st October .... .... We need to achieve this when the river is quiet from commercial vessels and the tides are right, which means we are proposing to shoot with the helicopter between the hours of 0700 and 1100.
from CBM

edit: sorry had a bit of a brain fart so early in the morning, no that wouldn't make all of the Earth completely dark, but clearly a solar eclipse is very likely to be part of what's going on in the film, based on the synopsis, and this poster.

That would be pretty damn impressive if Malekith could create a "permanent eclipse," as that would entail literally stopping the Moon in its orbital tracks. (!!! ) And, of course, that lunar shadow would only fall on a small portion of Earth anyway, so....yeah.


What *is* impressive is the attention to detail from the filmmakers in that scene description above. Whatever effect they're trying to achieve could most likely be done with CGI, but the fact that Taylor wanted to make it authentic by waiting for exactly the right time and exactly the right conditions to film is very commendable.

But in the Thor comics Mjolnir CAN be used to teleport between worlds..

Mjolnir should be able to do all sorts of wacky things. not just summon lightning and whack people around the head, like what brian bendis and matt fraction wish you to believe.

I'm going to try pasting the images in, since it seems relevant. (Seems it only lets me do thumbnails.)

They probably all owe a debt to Star Wars. That film re-energized interest in fantastical films, special effects, classical orchestral scores, and yes, movie posters. And while digging up this Star Wars poster (called "Style A"), I came across several other franchises using similar assemblies of imagery.

If he sticks Jane in there with that Leia pose (with her little gadget in her hand instead of a gun) I'm going to burst out laughing.

Or perhaps Darcy with a taser? LOL

i did like the first thor film, but it did seem too much like a kiddy disney movie. i hope this retains the charm, but has a nastier edge to it. i trust taylor will bring that.

Well, especially since the Star Wars franchise had Natalie Portman's character very deliberately evoke visual references to Leia. For example:

I'm surprised Thor hasn't devoured that poptart. Tis' good crap.
And I don't think it was a kiddy movie. I'd say they played it a bit safe, which is understandable considering it was Thor's debut.

Finally! Descriptions of footage presented a convention in Italy, via Thor2Fans. Presented by Nigel Cook, Marvel Ent. Intl. Vice President. I gathered a few (roughly translated) descriptions Couple of little spoilers:

Quote:
“In the preview, a voice-over is heard with the oath of the God of Thunder as the new supreme ruler. We see a clash between Thor and the enemy army, in a world that is neither Asgard let alone the Earth. We see Chris Hemsworth wielding his hammer and Tom Hiddleston as Loki first wounded without a helmet, with long, loose hair and then imprisoned; his anger increasingly desperate and irrational. Then there's a scene later in which he is free again, but still furious.

The rest of the images show glimpses of Asgard, with Anthony Hopkins as Odin and Natalie Portman in clothes that seem more like a princess; an Asgardian princess. In between, there are images of an epic battle on horseback, who seems to have left an epic cloak-and-dagger. The threat to the Asgardians is certainly a new alien race pale (now identified as the dark elves).

A black spaceship shaped irregularly looks like a serious threat to Asgard. More sequences show Natalie Portman then alongside Thor lying on the ground, probably overwhelmed in a clash.”

Hmmm. Some of those details seem consistent with some of the spoilers that have come before. Some, not so much. It's odd that there's no mention of, really, anything from the Simonson arc. Odd for the God of Thunder to be the supreme ruler, unless Surtur really does appear in this film.

Regarding "Asgardian princess" garb, I am loathe to read anything into that at the moment. My guess would be that there is a dress code for appearing at court (no red Wellies in the throne room ). We already know that Hopkins and Portman were going to have (a) scene(s) together.

Thanks for the very interesting tidbit, marvel_freshman!

Quote:
Thor, Thor 2: The Dark World, will have a fantasy dimension, particularly science fiction, even more accentuated the progenitor. This emerges from the source paper clips – i.e. without digital postproduction – we've seen the world premiere ("you're the first in the world to see it, except for who was present on the set," said the Vice-President of the international division of Marvel Nigel Cook in the room) at the Giornate Professionali di Sorrento.


After the clip, Cook has almost wanted to reassure the audience, adding that "the beginning and end of the film is still set on Earth, then the public will not be difficult to identify. In the Assembly we have seen, in fact, we see the feverish fight scenes involve Thor and an enemy army, and who might remember the atmosphere of a game of Thrones or some war predicaments of the Star Wars Saga. Against the backdrop of a forest, in the middle of a clearing, among the dust, we in fact face off anthropomorphic creatures, but also a big "gorilla" krosan tusker: a rather alien fauna varies so, although not extreme in size (there are also some envoys/ambassadors of a people mysterious, with oval face and black eyes, elongated and sunken). Loki appears for a few moments without masks and crowns, with loose hair, sitting with crazy look in any prison. The rest of the images show glimpses of the great palaces of Asgard, with Anthony Hopkins portrayed with the same look of the first episode and a Natalie Portman as Princess asgardiana, with the traditional clothes of that people, along with Thor.


Cook said he was generally concerned that Thor 2 receives the same attention and the same welcoming of Iron Man 3, on which it no doubt (the first trailer has made 4 times the viewing the trailer of The Avengers), as the characters and their world are less familiar to the general public. On the other hand, it also ensures that "The Avengers was a point of no return for Marvel films", which from now on will always raise on the grandeur of the locations and special effects and the General level of spectacularity.

In Sorrento, Nigel Cook, Vice-President of the Marvel world premiere unveiled the very first clip of Thor: The Dark World

During the Professional Film Days in Sorrento, was presented the first clip in the world premiere of the sequel to Thor: The Dark World.

The clip was submitted by Nigel Cook, Vice-President of Marvel. In the preview, free of postproduction, we see a fight between Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and the enemy army, in a world that is neither Asgard let alone the Earth. For a moment you see Loki (Tom Hiddleston), without helmet, unmasked (the same one that was in the final of The Avengers) with long hair and loose and air by crowds that has always distinguished it is sitting in a prison.

Then you see the Asgard again and its inhabitants including Odin, Thor and Anthony Hopkins, Jane (Natalie Portman) dressed as a Princess asgardiana.

Cook said he was worried about how Thor 2 be upheld, because the public is more eager to wait for Iron Man 3. But you just have to be confident.
oh, my... I wonder if Loki without "masks"/unmasked means they've imprisoned him as a Frost Giant. Now for him that IS punishment.

I think they mean it literally--without the mask/muzzle he wore at the end of The Avengers.

The real question is not whether he is without a mask or without a helmet. It's whether he is without a shirt! lol

oh, okay... I got you on the mask. could still be the other, like I said, that would be punishment for him! I suppose they would have said he was blue or whatever if that was the case. LOL So probably not.

well, frost giants don't get cold so technically he doesn't need the shirt.
