"Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment present the epic adventure, "Thor", which spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth), a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth by his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and is forced to live among humans. A beautiful, young scientist, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), has a profound effect on Thor, as she ultimately becomes his first love. It’s while here on Earth that 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."

THOR - was directed by Kenneth Branagh, from a screenplay written by Ashley Edward Miller, Zack Stentz and Don Payne. The film stars: Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Colm Feore, Ray Stevenson, Idris Elba, Kat Dennings, Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins. The film pulled in $449.3 million at the worldwide box office, against a budget of $150 million.

I wish every Blu-ray was like the TLOTR extras other film can compete.

Our CBMs disk 2's would be epic with all concept art and stuff.

The only thing I want to hear from the Thor character is that He will showcase his true power in Age of Ultron with his HELMET and that Thor 3 will come out in 2016 with Surtur/Amora/Beta Ray Bill

Thors world rocks! I watched THOR like 3times over the past wk and coulden't stop watching the Frost Giant scenes. The scene where Laufey rises via ice up to Odin whos sitting on his horse so he could face him face to face has stuck in my mind. It was so bad ass! Or when the frost giant tells thor to run home little The frost Giants rock!

As cool as I thought the Frost Giants were in Thor I'm gonna crash this thread with a related but unrelated topic. Ya know what's kind of fallen of the radar is that Colm Feore is in Spiderman 2. He's playing Donald Menken which to my knowledge isn't an alter ego for a Spidey villain of any kind unless he was yet another Hobgoblin. So... that.

Maybe Age of Ultron the movie will be like Age of Ultron the comic in that we won't see Ultron but for five minutes of the story and they'll say "well stylistically it HAS to be that way cause that's the story we wanted to tell. Ultron like already won, man.... from the future...yeah the future. That's what makes it cool, man. Cool like ice. VANILLA Ice. Like Snow. Informer."

So in closing, what I want is Vanilla Ice and Snow to do an Ice Ice Baby vs. Informer remix on the Age of Ultron soundtrack with James Spader doing back up vocals cause he's playing Ultron. Call it Ice Ice Ultron.

Where was I going with this? .... I hate getting old...

Oh right. Vanilla Ice is why there were Frost Giants in the first place.

Wish they would have made them slightly bigger.

@MAC If #2 doesn't happen I'll get really mad with Joss Whedon!

Loved the look of the Frost Giants. So glad they didn't make them look how they did in the Comics, actually 50ft giants. Hope to see them again in another Thor installment.

This is all ok and everything but I was pretty disappointment that they weren't giants. Or least exceptionally larger than the Asgardians. Hard to see where Ymir would have come from when seeing these guys.

Pretty great stuff here. The Frost Giants were one of the best things in Thor & actually wish they had more time in the movie. Colm Feore as Laufey was phenomenal!
