PG-13 2011 | Sci-Fi and Fantasy Action Adventure

When the god of thunder angers his father, he is cast out of the fantastical realm of Asgard and banished to a life among the lowly humans on Earth. (Wait, should we be offended?) But Thor soon discovers the 21st century is pretty fantastical, too, from first loves to Facebook. As his newfound home is threatened by Asgard's most ominous villain, Thor must use his courage - and his mighty hammer - to become the noble warrior he's destined to be.

  3. Cupcakes for two! Co-stars Stellan Skarsgard and Kat Dennings share the same birthday, June 13.
  4. Star Chris Hemsworth already knew his way around a hammer; he'd previously worked as a builder in his native Australia.
