From IMDb: “Thor must face the Hulk in a gladiator match and save his people from the ruthless Hela.”

Poster Rating: B / A-

Review: (#1) An interesting use of color, a blend infrequently used in poster designs. The base image is standard-issue, but it’s eye-catching, which is most important.

(#2) Taking a smidgen of inspiration from the Guardians of the Galaxy posters, the kaleidoscopic color scheme is interesting and the actor poses add visual flair and depth to the entire design.

Trailer Rating: B / B

Review: (#1) Some of the humor that made Thor more appealing in the Avengers film doesn’t trump the familiarity on display here. Sure, there are some unique details that we haven’t seen before, but everything seems so generic.

(#2) We get more plot details this time out and the film almost looks like an adequate follow-up to Thor: The Dark World rather than a pale version of The Avengers. That imitation is still there, but the overall result is solid.

Oscar Prospects:

A Best Visual Effects nomination is certainly possible, but the film isn’t likely to show up anywhere else.
