In one of the year’s most eagerly anticipated epic adventure films, the Mighty Thor of Asgard—a powerful but arrogant warrior—is banished to Earth after his reckless actions reignite an ancient war. When a dangerous villain from his world sends their darkest forces to invade Earth, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero. The Hollywood Reporter calls it “a universe-rattling spectacle full of sound and fury with a suitably epic design, solid digital effects and a healthy respect for the comic-book lore that turned a mythological Norse god into a founding member of the superhero team known as The Avengers.”
