As promised, we will be live streaming tonight’s big Hollywood red carpet World Premiere for THOR: THE DARK WORLD set for 9:30 pm EST / 6:30 pm PST courtesy of Yahoo! Expect to see the film’s stars, film makers, celebrity guests and other Marvel movie persons of interest posing for pictures and talking up to the press the evening’s events.
Part of Marvel’s cinematic Phase Two story arc (set after the events of The Avengers), Thor: The Dark World reunites Chris Hemsworth as the Norse God of Thunder with Natalie Portman (Jane Foster), Kat Dennings (Darcy Lewis), Anthony Hopkins (Odin), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Stellan Skarsgård (Dr. Selvig), Idris Elba (Heimdall) and Jaimie Alexander (Sif). Christopher Eccleston (Doctor Who, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) joins the cast as Malekith the Accursed, the evil leader of the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim.
“Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvel’s 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.”
Directed by Alan Taylor, the film is set for theaters in 3D on November 8th.
