Marvel Comics' God of Thunder, the Mighty Thor, is bringing his smash hit film to DVD and Blu-Ray combo pack soon. IGN scored an exclusive look at the details of all three versions being released on September 13th.
Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment present the epic adventure, "Thor," which spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth), a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth by his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and is forced to live among humans. A beautiful, young scientist, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), has a profound effect on Thor, as she ultimately becomes his first love. It’s while here on Earth that Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.
The three versions all feature over 80 minutes of special behind the scenes looks at the film and previews for Marvel Studio's upcoming ensemble film, The Avengers in addition to an incredible look into the world of film director Kenneth Brannaugh. The Ultimate three disc version contains the film on both Blu-Ray in high definition 3D and high definition 2D versions with a digital copy.
