New THOR Featurette Focuses on the Production Design


There’s a new featurette for Kenneth Branagh’s Thor and it does nothing to lessen my fears about the scale of the film.  The featurette focuses on the production design, but rather than provide details on Thor’s home of Asgard, we’re instead treated to a behind-the-scenes look at how they built the small town in New Mexico where Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is banished, because presumably you’ve never seen a small town in a movie before.  This is my central concern about the film: it’s going to push the spectacle and grandeur of the character to the side so we can witness the majesty of a Norse god visiting the local 7-11 for a Slurpee.

Hit the jump to check out the featurette.  Thor opens in 3D on May 6th.
