Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Anthony Hopkins showed up for their big world premiere of Thor: The Dark World. The first premiere took place in London, where the film was shot and again in Los Angeles just this week (November 4). At both venues the hot stars were greeted by a mass of screaming fans.

Arriving on the red carpet Chris Hemsworth was met with fans chanting “Thor, Thor, Thor, Thor!” Hemsworth said, “I love London, such a beautiful place. I’ve done a number of films here, we shot the film here. A year or so later to be back and to have this kind of reception and affection from the fans, there’s nothing more you can ask for.”

Natalie Portman echoed her love and appreciation for London, “It’s just a great place to shoot. There’s studios, incredible crews…and the best actors in the world.” Natalie Portman continued to discuss the film itself saying, “There’s a lot of action and a great story about this brotherly relationship, but there’s a lot humor so that is the really great part about it.”

Anthony Hopkins discussed the cast and how much he enjoyed the film say, “It is a spectacular looking film. Chris [Hemsworth] is great, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Eccleston, Rene Russo, Jamie Alexander, everyone bar none just great.”

Now a bit about the film itself. Millennia ago the Dark Elves tried to send the universe into darkness by using a weapon known as the Aether. But warriors from Asgard stopped them. However, Malekith (Chris Eccleston), leader of the Dark Elves, escaped to await a second chance. The Aether cannot be destroyed. So the warriors hide it. Cut to present day, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) waits for Thor’s (Chris Hemsworth) return. Jane discovers an anomaly, investigates, and finds a wormhole. Jane is sucked into it. Thor wishes to return to Earth but his father, Odin (Anthony Hopkins) refuses to let him. Thor learns from Heimdall (Idris Elba) that Jane disappeared. Thor then returns to Earth just as Jane returns. Thor then brings her to Asgard to find out what happened to Earth. He discovers that Jane crossed paths with the Aether and it entered her. Malekith upon sensing that the time to strike is now seeks out the Aether.
