Trailer Probe: Thor
Reviewed by Joe Crowe, © 2011

Format: Movie
By:   Kenneth Branagh (director)
Genre:   Superhero
Review Date:   February 08, 2011

Trailer Probe grades nerd related movie trailers on the good parts (geek explosion content) and the bad parts (dork disengagement level). The final grade is in geek parts per billion; one billion geek parts is the most awesome.


Dork disengagement level: We have seen much of the parts of this trailer already. It ends with two people riding in a car talking. Clearly they are preparing for next year's Oscars. Is Meryl Streep in this?

Does Thor or Jane Foster have a disease?

Maybe wait until it stops raining.

Geek explosion content: Anthony Hopkins narrates the inscription on Thor's hammer from Thor's first appearance in Journey into Mystery in 1962.

Other Thor-related scenes are in the trailer. But I say again in italics: Anthony Hopkins narrates the inscription on Thor's hammer.


Geek parts per billion: 900,000.
