Full-Length Thor: The Dark World Trailer Online
'Before the universe, there was darkness. And it has survived...'

07 August 2013  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: YouTube

A new trailer for Thor: The Dark World has appeared online, despite the fact that this is Odin's Day and not - as has become traditional for this film - Thor's Day. But don't worry: the Thunder God is very much present and correct, standing up to defend the world against a tide of darkness that threatens "the very fabric of reality".

 

This time around Asgard is under threat from the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim, led by Christopher Eccleston's Malekith, and Earth too faces destruction at the hands of this still-mysterious force. Meanwhile, Natalie Portman's Jane Foster gets an outing to Asgard to visit the in-laws, and Chris Hemsworth's Thor is forced to call on his treacherous brother Loki, who seems to be the one person around who might have useful information on this new enemy. We guess that's who he was studying with between the first Thor and The Avengers.

Much of this footage was shown at Comic-Con, but there are new segments of death and destruction (especially around Greenwich, which is in for a really bad day) and this is missing the finally shocking shot of that selection (read our Comic-Con article for more on that, but beware potential spoilers). What it does have is more of Tom Hiddleston's Loki in prison and more crashing wreckage than previous clips.

It's all directed by Alan Taylor and also stars Idris Elba, Anthony Hopkins, Rene Russo, Kat Dennings, Zachary Levi, Jaimie Alexander, Stellan Skargard and Ray Stevenson.

Thor: The Dark World hits cinemas on October 30. Check out our interview with Tom "Loki" Hiddleston about the film and his appearance at Comic-Con below.

L: Gazzabrook I agree, unless you actually follow the film news, you have no idea who the villain is in this film. but maybe after IM3 that's a good thing haven't been following the news and thought "so who's the villain?" watching this. So who's the villain? More

Looking good. Liked the "Arab Swordsman" type gag they probably should have left it out of the trailer (unless there's more to it in the actual film). More

L: Porter ...a film to get excited about. Was worried that this summer's spew was all there was to look forward to. And Loki's back, so that's good. oki definitely had more screen-time in this trailer. Possibly due to him becoming a solid fan favourite? I think so. Not that I'm complaining mind, I think Hemsworth and Hiddleston have great chemistry together and very much look forward to seeing this on the big screen. More

RE: Full-Length Thor: The Dark World Trailer Online
A little worried about the lack of Malakith in the trailers so far - other than vague references to 'darkness' there's little to indicate exactly what the film is about? Wonder whether it suggests a lack of confidence in the character? More

Hmmm
Looks like the first one.....average! More

Yes!
Now that's more like it. This trailer is much better than the first one. More
