tuesday’s trailers – thor: the dark world; r.i.p.d

So we’re trying something a little different here, chez Rabbit Hole. I’ve been looking for other ways to express my love of film, outside of work and spamming my Facebook friends and Twitter followers (love you all!) so I’m going to try to incorporate at least one (maybe two) film related posts a week into my blog. This is also good because it means I’ll have something structured to write about.

Don’t worry, though, there will still be more random confessions of a twentysomething here too. (In fact, remind me to have a rant over the whole “Can-you-be-friends-with-your-ex” thing at some point. Sheesh).


Anyway, to kick things off, here’s this Tuesday’s trailer… For THOR: THE DARK WORLD. Which totally warrants the shouty capitals because it looks awesome.

It’s pretty self-explanatory: A sequel to Thor/The Avengers, with Natalie Portman back as Jane Foster and Chris Hemsworth looking unruffled as usual as Thor.

A stolen synopsis reckons: “In the aftermath of The Avengers, Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.”

My most fun comment on the trailer – which is epic, and I’m very excited – relates to Loki. Particularly, the Tom Hiddleston fangirls who are freaking out about how sexy he looks. Look, I think he’s cute enough… But really, in the ten seconds we see him, he looks very unwell. I’m sure he’ll clean up nicely, but y’all need to rein it in until then. It’s a little creepy.

And then… the next trailer broke here in SA on Friday morning, so it’s a little stale. But you can just deal.

It’s R.I.P.D, starring Ryan Reynolds (he needs to do something great, quick, before he gets too stale) and Jeff Bridges, aka The Dude.

From IMDb: “A recently slain cop joins a team of undead police officers working for the Rest in Peace Department and tries to find the man who murdered him.”

Looks like it wants to be Men In Black. And you know what, that’s okay. Just please don’t suck too hard.
