VIDEO: 'Thor' Trailer Strikes Like Lightning!

The trailer for the movie starring Chris Hemsworth as Thor nicely tees up a movie that won't open for another five to six months.

We get a bit of mystery, we get the Shakespearian family dynamic, we see all the players from Anthony Hopkins to Natalie Portman to Tom Hiddleston (as Loki), we get a bit of love, and we get plenty of world-destroying action. This movie has it all, this trailer tells us.

Hopkins as Odin is especially effective (and had better be, or why else get the Oscar winner), giving the trailer serious dramatic heft.
