The official UK second trailer for the sequel to Marvel’s Thor – Thor: The Dark World has just been released. The film debuts in the UK on 30th October.
Thor: The Dark World, which stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, former Doctor Who Christopher Eccleston and Anthony Hopkins as Odin continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself.
In the aftermath of Marvel’s Thor and Marvel’s The Avengers, Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos… but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
Thor: The Dark World is directed by Alan Taylor, produced by Kevin Feige, p.g.a., from a story by Don Payne and Robert Rodat and screenplay by Christopher L. Yost and Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, and is based on Marvel’s classic superhero Thor, who first appeared in the comic book Journey into Mystery #83 in August, 1962 in the US and soon featured in British reprints in the mid-1960s.
Thor: The Dark World is presented by Marvel Studios. The executive producers are Alan Fine, Nigel Gostelow, Stan Lee, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso and Craig Kyle.
