Marvel and Paramount’s Thor is hoping to continue the strong summer box office pace set by Universal’s Fast Five when it hammers into theaters this upcoming Friday.
If you’re still on the fence about seeing Thor or cannot wait and want to see more right now, then today’s your lucky day. A pair of 5-minute behind-the-scenes featurettes for Thor have popped up on YouTube, each offering an inside look at the production in New Mexico, where the earth footage was shot on location, and California, where Asgard was brought to life on soundstages. Though unconfirmed, these featurettes will probably appear on the Thor Blu-ray and DVD releases later this year.
I had a chance to catch Thor this past weekend and was pleasantly surprised by the balanced mix of Shakespearean drama and lighter “earth” humor. Thor is a fantastic entry in Marvel’s Avengers films and is not to be missed.
