Anthony Hopkins is Odin

Thor was recently given the 3-D blessing because everyone LOVES 3-D. Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Anthony Hopkins are all in the movie and they’ll present it at this year’s Comic-Con. From LAT:

“We came to feel that in our case 3-D could be the very good friend of story and character for a different kind of experience,” Branagh said, taking a break from post-production. The filmmaker said the terminology of the 3-D process initially made him cringe — at first, it was “math and physics and way over my head,” he said with a chuckle — but then he started to pulse with the unexpected artistic opportunities.

“It’s another draft of the story that can reveal itself in a different way,” he said. “I had a healthy degree of skepticism up front … I’ve become somebody extremely excited about working with possibilities of doing it this way.”

The only reason this is in 3-D is because movie studios told them to. After Avatar, studios have this idea that people love putting on stupid glasses and watching things fly at their face.

Anyway, a first-look photo of the gods of Thor were released the other day and one of the gods was Odin played by Anthony Hopkins. He looks really out of place. Hopkins looks like a senile old man that got lost in a costume shop. If you saw this guy on the street, you wouldn’t think bad ass Norse god. You’d think to maybe call the old folks home and ask if they were missing a resident.
