Thor doesn’t open until May 6, 2011 here in the United States of America, but the film has already made appearances in other countries. And when movie goers know ahead of time that there is a better than likely chance a teaser for upcoming Marvel films will appear at the end of the credits, someone somewhere is going to whip out their cellphone and record it for the rest of the world to see.
MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD! YOU’VE BEEN WARNED! WE DON’T WANT YOU TO BE RUSSELLED! (but we know you’re going to look anyway)
It’s odd, I was just talking with my class about viral marketing yesterday, and low and behold, THIS piece of awesome arrived online thanks to Marvel and a very smart parody of the Star Wars Volkswagen commercial.
Make sure you watch the commercial a few times. The video is filled with in jokes and references…
While we still have to wait a few weeks for Thor to arrive in U.S. theaters, the movie has now opened in Australia and soon the rest of the world. Major Spoilerite Antonio Sanciolo, who runs a movie theater, took a look at the movie, and filed this review.
I’ve always found it odd that movies get the greenlight for sequels before the first movie arrives in the theaters. Of course with the amount of money a studio sinks into a potential franchise, it’s always better to lock up the sequels early before the actors get too old or too busy with other projects to return to the property.
Do you fear… event fatigue? I hope not, as Marvel is here with its latest big event, promising magical Mjolnirs for all the bad guys, paranoia and panic for the good guys, and expanded page counts for all the readers. The only thing you have to fear is not reading this review for Fear Itself #1!
Instead of Super Heroes®, maybe they should be called Slurpee® heroes. When the first Super Hero® movie of the year hits the big screen, you can be sure a 7-Eleven® fun-filled Slurpee promotion, with collectible cups, straws and a crazy-colored flavor, isn’t far behind … or in many cases, out in front of the U.S. premiere.
This year, Slurpee heroes, inspired by Thor, a movie from Marvel Studios and Paramount Pictures due to hit theaters May 6, 2011, is thundering into participating 7-Eleven stores in the U.S. and Canada for the month of April.
