Thor script
Thor (2011)
Synopsis: As the son of Odin (Anthony Hopkins), king of the Norse gods, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) will soon inherit the throne of Asgard from his aging father. However, on the day that he is to be crowned, Thor reacts with brutality when the gods' enemies, the Frost Giants, enter the palace in violation of their treaty. As punishment, Odin banishes Thor to Earth. While Loki (Tom Hiddleston), Thor's brother, plots mischief in Asgard, Thor, now stripped of his powers, faces his greatest threat.

FADE IN:

On the blackness of SPACE, beautiful and mysterious, strewn

with a billion stars.

Atop a building, a wrought-iron sign -- a HAMMER-WIELDING

BLACKSMITH -- spins listlessly in the wind as a swirling

breeze kicks up. A hint of what's to come.

1 EXT. PUENTE ANTIGUO, NEW MEXICO - NIGHT 1

A main street extends before us in this one-horse town, set

amid endless flat, arid scrubland. A large SUV slowly moves

down the street and heads out of town.

2 EXT. SUV - NIGHT 2

The SUV sits parked in the desert. Suddenly, the roof panels

of the SUV FOLD OPEN. The underside of the panels house a

variety of hand-built ASTRONOMICAL DEVICES, which now point

at the sky.

JANE FOSTER (late 20's) pops her head through the roof. She

positions a MAGNETOMETER, so its monitor calibrates with the

constellations above. It appears to be cobbled together from

spare parts of other devices.

JANE:

Hurry!

We hear a loud BANG followed by muffled CURSING from below.

Jane offers a hand down to ERIK SELVIG (60) who emerges as

well, rubbing his head.

JANE (CONT'D)

Oh-- watch your head.

SELVIG:

Thanks. So what's this "anomaly"

of yours supposed to look like?

JANE:

It's a little different each time.

Once it looked like, I don't know,

melted stars, pooling in a corner

of the sky. But last week it was a

rolling rainbow ribbon--

SELVIG:

(GENTLY TEASING)

"Racing "˜round Orion?" I've always

said you should have been a poet.

Jane reigns in her excitement. She tries for dignity.

JANE:

Hey, Darcy. Pass up the bubbly and

my gloves, will you?

Intern DARCY LEWIS (20) hands Jane a bottle of Champagne and

a pair of gloves through the window. Jane passes it to

Selvig to hold while she pulls on the old gloves -- too large

and masculine for her small hands. He starts to unwrap the

foil, and she stops his hand with an excited grin.

JANE (CONT'D)

Not until you see it!

SELVIG:

(re:
the gloves)

I recognize those. Think how proud

he'd be to see you now.

Jane's grin fades to a sad smile.

JANE:

Thank you.

SELVIG:

For what?

JANE:

The benefit of the doubt.

The two stare out at the sky expectantly. A long beat while

they scan the skies. Nothing. Jane's worried.

4th BLUE REVISIONS 03-26-10 2.

JANE (CONT'D)

It's never taken this long before.

Darcy calls up from the front seat.

DARCY (O.S.)

Can I turn on the radio?

JANE:

(an edge to her voice)

Sure, if you like rocking out to

KFRM, "All agriculture, all the

time."

Worried, Jane heads back down into the vehicle.
