3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD art for "Thor"


Kenneth Branagh's Thor, starring Chris Hemsworth as the god of thunder, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Tom Hiddleston, Rene Russo, and Anthony Hopkins, was one of the unexpected hits of the summer, performing modestly here in the US but getting a thunderous applause abroad. While the details on the extras for the 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD releases of Thor are unspecified (as of yet), Paramount has released the cover art for all three.And call me crazy, but the artwork for the regular Blu-ray and DVD versions is definitely better than the art on the 3D Blu-ray cover.

Thor seems to be getting the Tron: Legacy release treatment in that they're offering the Blu-ray combo packs (3D and regular) that also include the film on DVD and as a digital copy, whereas the DVD release has no extra formats to keep it company. Though speculative, it's also possible that the Blu-ray releases may feature a picture-in-picture commentary track and other possible goodies you might not get with DVD. That's just guessing though, but it wouldn't be too surprising if a few additional Blu-ray exclusives are tossed in there just to force the hand of a few stalwart consumers holding out on the new format.
