“Thor: Legends Of Valhalla” trailer

Tis the season… for crap!

Here’s the final trailer Thor: Legends of Valhalla (at one time known as Legend of the Magical Hammer) which will mercifully bypass theatrical showings and will have a DVD release on January 15, 2013.

(Thanks, Jody Morgan)

    Haha, I laughed at the last bit. It would be pretty good if that gag was actually in the film. Like breaking the fourth wall in more ways than one.

    I don’t know, that doesn’t look so bad for a straight-to-DVD film! If this is what low-rent looks like these days, I’m impressed!

    A talking hammer… how… amusing…

      I know “The Brave Little Toaster.”

        Speaking of “The Brave Little Toaster,” I’ve read that some animation studio (or the same that created that movie) is going to create a remake in CGI.

    While I can’t say I laughed or was really eager to rush out and see this, it’s better than a lot of the indie crap that gives animation a bad name

  • tsim

    I think straight to DVD is the right choice. I though the trailer could had been cut better regardless.

    Good to see Kronk and Yzma still getting work.

      She reminds me more of Mrs. Dr. Finkelstein :p

    That “fight” scene was easily the crappiest part in this trailer, with a billowing dust cloud forming so we couldn’t see the utter lack of effort in a fight the animators could be arsed to choreograph….except that the dust cloud is only half their so they’re just lumped together like some sort of zero-g orgy.

    However, this doesn’t look quite as bad as others of its ilk and not quite as painful to watch.

    Note: DO NOT HAVE MACGUFFIN OBJECTS TALK! They don’t seem to make the film any better.

      at least part of the film.

      CAOZ Studios, an Icelandic company, made it. It’s the first full length animated feature made in Iceland. (Though they only did part of the actual animation. There’s a credit bit on the film’s website.)

  • Bud

    Is this some sort of prequel to the croods?

  • Glowworm

    The villainess looks uncannily like Yzma!

    Hasn’t this been on Netflix instant view for a while? Or is it some other movie? Ah well, it doesn’t look AS terrible as I expected, but, you know, it still looks pretty terrible. You know, by mockbuster standards, not the worst, but still crap.

  • Ben

    It looks a lot like How to Train Your Dragon, with some other characters mixed in (like Yzma and Kronk as others pointed out). I do agree that it doesn’t look as horrible as I thought considering the company it keeps. Still, it does look kind of derivative too. Thor looks like a slightly more muscular Hiccup.

    So that is a valid review you think?… ‘it’s crap’ ?

    Yep, this is on Netflix Canada already.

    Not down to the low standards of SIR BILLI, but still pretty cringe-worthy.

    Thank God! I watched a preview of this at the Fredikstad Animation Festival in Norway back in 2011, and it looked awful from beginning to end. They should just re-release Peter Madsen’s hand-drawn ‘Valhalla’ feature from 1986 instead… that is a far better film and far more respectful towards the myths it’s based on.
