This Friday, the highly anticipated Thor 2 hits theatres. Starring Chris Hemsworth as Thor, the flick continues the adventures of the crown prince of Asgard as he battles to protect the Nine Realms from a new enemy. The film also stars Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Anthony Hopkins as Odin and Christopher Eccleston as Malekith.
This week, we plan on reviewing two films that will coincide with Thor 2’s release – Garden State and Thor. Garden State is a drama that stars Zach Braff as a heavily medicated actor who returns home after his mother dies. Natalie Portman also features in the film, playing a compulsive liar who develops a connection with Braff.
Chris Hemsworth stars in Thor as the mighty prince of Asgard, based on the Norse god of the same name. In the film he is exiled to Earth as punishment for breaking a truce between the Asgardians and the Frost Giants. On Earth he meets Jane Foster, played by Natalie Portman, a scientist who connects with Thor and must help him return to Asgard.
