(2013) (Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Fantasy-Action: Thor must team up with his imprisoned brother to save his kingdom; his Earthbound girlfriend, Jane; and the rest of the cosmos from an ancient evil.
- Centuries ago, the forces of Asgard did battle with the evil Dark Elves, whose leader, Malekith (CHRISTOPHER ECCLESTON), sought to use a weapon known as the Aether to plunge the nine realms of the universe into darkness. The Dark Elves were defeated, and the Aether was buried and hidden for hundreds of years until Earth scientist Jane Foster (NATALIE PORTMAN) stumbles onto a portal between her world and the Dark World and becomes infected by the gooey substance.
Against the wishes of his father, King Odin (ANTHONY HOPKINS), Thor (CHRIS HEMSWORTH) locates Jane, the love of his life, and brings her to Asgard in an effort to save her from the spreading Aether infection. Soon Thor's kingdom is attacked by a resurrected Malekith. In the attack, Thor's mother, Frigga (RENE RUSSO), is killed and much of Asgard is thrashed.
With the kingdom's defenses down and a grief-stricken Odin wanting only to guard his people from further assaults, Thor decides to take the fight directly to Malekith using the magic and mischief of his imprisoned, yet still power-hungry brother, Loki (TOM HIDDLESTON). Their plan may save the cosmos or doom it to eternal darkness. Meanwhile, back on Earth, Jane's colleagues, Dr. Erik Selvig (STELLAN SKARSGARD) and Darcy Lewis (KAT DENNINGS), try to figure out an interstellar phenomenon known as The Convergence that threatens their world and possibly all worlds.
