Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment present the highly anticipated motion picture adaptation of THOR, the latest from the Marvel pantheon of legendary super heroes who have inspired generations of readers.

The epic adventure THOR spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the mystical realm of Asgard. At the centre of the story is The Mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth) , a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. As a result, Thor is banished to Earth, where he is forced to live among humans. When the most dangerous villain of his world sends its darkest forces to invade Earth, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero.

THOR is the tale of one man’s mythic journey: from a petulant prince born to inherit the throne, to a humble super hero who earns the right to lead.

The film is directed by Kenneth Branagh. The screenplay is by Ashley Edward Miller & Zack Stentz and Don Payne, with a story by J Michael Straczynski and Mark Protosevich.
