Thor: The Dark World Movie Poster Gets LEGO’d
by Shawn Depasquale on October 9, 2013
Everyone loves LEGOs. It’s a fact. You can’t not love them, because that would mean you hate joy and that’s mean. As we all know there are no “mean people” anywhere on the internet so: Everyone loves LEGOs.
Know what else everyone loves? Movies! Movie posters to be precise. We can’t get enough of ‘em!
Well, the good people at Marvel Entertainment and the joy-bringing denizens of Legoland teamed up to create a LEGO-ized version of the cinematic one-sheet (that’s fancy talk for poster) for Thor: The Dark World.
Wow. That sure is a LEGO version of that poster! Look at their tiny, deformed hands! HA! Take that, Natalie Portman!
This news comes from the Los Angeles Times’ Hero Complex, which dutifully remind us that this isn’t all fun and games – it’s commerce, baby!! The poster, as you’ve probably noted by now, is a clever promotion for another in a long line of LEGO video games. This one, due Oct 22 is aptly named LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, and, to clear up any possible confusion, includes more than just Thor characters.
As for the movie: it has a November 8th release date; Natalie “My Hands Are Normal” Portman is back as Jane “I Love Nordic Demi-Gods” Foster. Former (and my personal favorite) Doctor Who Christopher Eccleston joins the cast as Malekith, a dark elf. Kat Dennings, Stellan Skarsgård, and Idris Elba are all returning, as well as Tom Hiddleston as Loki: The Lovable Scamp!
