DVD/Blu-ray/Combo Pack
From $16.99

Marvel Comics' hunky hammerer comes to the movies in his big-budget 2011 re-casting of his mythological origins, how he ended up on Earth, and his calling to protect the planet from some superbad intergalactic interlopers. Chris Hemsworth plays the mythic God of Thunder, Natalie Portman is the brainy beauty that captures his royal heart, and Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins rules the cosmos as King Odin. Bonus features include commentary by director Kenneth Branaugh, who gives the whole shebang a veneer of stately Shakespearean elegance, and numerous making-of featurettes.
