Thor International Posters Debut

Marvel and Paramount Pictures have debuted two new international posters for Thor that are, frankly, an improvement on the domestic versions released two weeks ago — even with the floating heads. In addition to Tom Hiddleston’s grinning Loki, who was missing from the earlier group shot, the new banners unveil a solid marketing slogan: “Courage Is Immortal.”

Directed by Kenneth Branagh, Thor stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston, Jaimie Alexander, Colm Feore, Stellan Skarsgård, Kat Dennings Joshua Dallas, Tadanobu Asano, Ray Stevenson, Idris Elba, Rene Russo, Clark Gregg and Samuel L. Jackson. It opens in 3D on May 6.

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.

    Those are pretty solid posters, the air-brushing on Natalie Portman looks a bit overdone but otherwise me likey. Can’t wait for this to come out.

    It’s amusing how big a role Heimdall plays in all of these posters when I never get the feeling he’ll have that much to do.

    More boring photo-collage posters. What happened to the days when people painted epic posters for their movies? These probably take about five minutes on photoshop – one minute to brush up everyone’s pictures, one minute to arrange the pictures, and the rest to slap some cheap looking text in there.

    Wouldn’t it be cool if, I don’t know, Marvel actually got artists from within the company to draw/paint/whatever the posters for the movies? I don’t think much of some of them, but Adi Granov easily has a better sense of composition than this. Of course, I guess if you don’t slap a few movie-star faces on there, people might get confused *is being sarcastic*..

    As much as I like the posters I completely see your point.

    “Courage is Immortal”.
    That’s the best they could come up with? Oy.

    Agreed, I personally think both of these posters are incredibly boring and unimaginative.

    I was saying the same thing about they’re shitty comic book event logos. From Heroic Age to The Dark Angel Saga, they look horrible. I can do better for free.
