#13: THOR
Director: Kenneth Branagh
Stars: Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins, Natalie Portman, Ray Stevenson, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Kat Dennings
Release Date: May 6
Why we’re excited: Of all the Marvel superheroes making the transition to Hollywood (Iron Man, Captain America and the rest of the Avengers), Thor seems like the character best designed for 3D and IMAX. The Norse muscleman’s story takes him and his giant hammer from the eye-popping world of Asgard to Earth, thanks to some intense family drama, which leads to interplanetary destruction. Based on the trailer, some of the Asgard shots do look cheesy, but the action is promising and Aussie newcomer Chris Hemsworth is an imposing Thor. Seriously, have you seen dude's arms? If his performance blows, we’ll let you tell him.
