I was thinking about this and it looks like it takes place after the Avengers movie. At the end of the trailer Thor is asking Loki for help, and Loki is apparently in a jail cell of some kind. At the end of the first Thor movie, Loki was presumed dead.. but after Avengers Loki was taken back to Asgard as a prisoner. I still don't understand why they never explained how Thor got back to earth in Avengers. Maybe they will cover that plot hole in this movie.

Loki assumed to Thor that Odin and Heimdall used dark magics to get Thor back to Earth. He used it in a negative connotation so maybe this film deals with the repercussions of that.

Interesting, he could have been eluding to something bigger.. either that or he was disgusted that Thor was able to travel across worlds in the same fashion Loki was able to?

 

So, I checked on Marvel's site and found a brief description of the movie:

 

 

Marvel’s "Thor: The Dark World," in theaters November 8, 2013, 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.

And Malekith is a dark elf and has previously used the Casket of Ancient Winters in an Avengers cartoon episode:

I don't even care that the plot wasn't explained in the trailer.. this looks badass. :D

 

The plot revolves around a war with Dark Elves.

In other news Thor The Dark World has caused racial controversy between Dunmer & Nords (See Also Nordic Race) in Windhelm.

I couldn't tell those were Dark Elves based off the trailer. -_- It definitely looked like a large scale battle between two different species tho. :P

 

I hope this movie has no racial undertones to it. That would be horrible. :crap:

No spoiler tags for this but 2:10 was a major spoiler....

To a certain extent I wanted to root for The Dark Elves. Not because they were "evil" but from what they stated it seem like they were fighting an evil that destroyed their way of life; that being light.

 

I'm kind of disappointed that Odin states that they aren't Gods. Which leaves for me a feeling that the people that made this didn't want to offend religious nutters who want to declare only their god(s) are real.

 

Also stay after the credits.

I watched up until the 2:10 mark. Thank you for the warning. From what I did hear in the first couple minutes reaffirms what I heard about the movie being as much of a sequel to Avengers as well as a sequel to the first Thor. I'm looking forward to watching this. I also read that this season of Shield will have an episode in a couple weeks that takes place after the events of the second Thor movie. I just hope it doesn't have spoilers in it if I haven't seen this movie by then.

I was referring to trailer you posted previously not to Movie Bob's review just to clarify.

Just watched it, and it was loads of fun!  It does take place after Avengers, and there's some great action and great humor in there.

Actually, I thought it was better.  Maybe because they didn't have to spend time on origin story and could really get to the meat of it.  There was a bit of deus ex machina in places, but Christopher Eccleston as the main villian?  Swweeeet!

I watched this tonight and I enjoyed every minute of it. I think it was better than Thor 1. The first movie definitely felt more like the origin story that it was. Thor 2 was more of a good versus true evil battle.

 

The Collector was shown at the end.. very interesting. I'm thinking they are already laying the ground work for Avengers 3, which would most likely have Thanos trying to take over the universe. O_O

For me, Thor 1 > 2. What I liked in Thor 2 - aerial fight sequence in Asgard and a bit of Loki. What I didn't like in Thor 2 - for a catastrophic event in the end of THAT magnitude there was no other Superhero in sight (were they all dumb all of a sudden or asleep?) or SHIELD or anyone outside the small group of 3/4 people which made it unrealistic or not very believable and bad dialog when it came to humor.

I kept expecting some other super hero, shield or a larger British force to appear.. instead only a couple fighter jets showed up. Oh well. I suppose the fight was fast enough that non of the other super heroes from the US could have made it to Britain in that amount of time.

 

There were 2 things I didn't like in the movie.. The first was the mostly naked Thor scene. His ass checks were so muscular I could see his ass cleavage all the way up his lower back. ewww. :P and Jane Foster's makeup was so heavy that it was beyond noticeable. Everyone else's makeup was fine.. but Natalie Portman's foundation was like a layer of junk on her face. :\

      I've owned 3 cars now. My first car was a 1993 Nissan Maxima. It had 110k miles on it and it served me well until 215k miles. An alternator and a break hose were the only major repairs I've ever had to have done on it. Then I got a 2004 Mazda3 which also served me well from 11k miles to 80k miles, a fuel purge sensor was the only major repair I ever had to do on it. I'd still have it if some kid didn't pull out in front of my and total it. With the insurance check I should have just put a nice down payment on a brand new car... but at the time I didn't want a car note so I got the only thing I could find... a 2004 Ford Mustang. It had less miles than my Mazda so I figured it was like I just had this car all along since it was the same year. Wrong, its been the biggest POS I've ever owned. I've had to have the power steering pump replaced twice, major exhaust work twice, serpentine belt, entire ABS system, read axle, front calipers, CV joint, motor fan, and the transmission that was put in to replace the already busted on they tried to sell the car with, is about to go out again... to top it all off the paint just started crumbling off the car and now its rusting. I bought it with 65k miles and now it has 116k miles. Now that my college loan is almost finally paid off, I'm looking to get a brand new Honda Civic or VW Golf. The Civic is a car I've always wanted since wanting a car, but the Golf is very nice and has more horsepower. I'll never buy another ford car again. I remember when my exhaust system basically fell off the car because the manifold cracked... the muffler shop I went to basically said "Yeah this is pretty common at 90k miles for this car" which I was pretty much at... wtf. Screw Ford. I've never had so many catastrophic failures with a vehicle.

      I'm sick of winter. This crap needs to end. Another day of driving on snow/ice covered roads in zero degree temps that are so cold the rock salt wont melt anything. Its like every road is made of gravel and my car is bouncing all over the place. At least the tall hill roads are getting treated with strong as hell rock salt of a different blend to ensure melting and to prevent accidents. But all other streets are complete ass to drive on.

      Tried the Monster Hunter Wold beta after the guys I played Destiny with kept hyping it up... eh. Its not for me. The controls are funky, and the explanation of what I was suppose to be doing wasn't very good. I just beat down a monster until it died? I thought I was suppose to be capturing it? I was expecting a finishing move prompt, or a QTE, for a death blow, but it just seemed anti-climatic. Then it sent me to the "Coming Jan 2018, would you like to Pre-Order?" in which I said no and got sent back to the main menu. At this point I knew I wasn't going to try the more difficult quests if I have to go through all that each time, rather staying in the game world and picking another quest that way. I never played a Monster Hunter game before, I always thought they looked neat, but playing it myself left me uninspired.

      BoTW took Game of the Year award and its well deserved, but I'm also glad NieR: Automata got best musical score, because its very well deserved.
