Superhero Hype found these two odd behind-the-scenes videos of the Thor movie. I say odd because this isn’t a behind-the-scenes featurette or anything, no actors are discussing the film, it’s literally just a 10-minute collection of videos watching the actual film shots being made, so it’s rather literally behind the scenes. I don’t think there are any spoilers in here, since everything in it was pretty much shown in the trailers. Still, I always think it’s interesting to see how mundane some shots are to create on film, when you know they’ll be awesome later with context, sound, music, special effects, whatever. And if that doesn’t suit you, there’s still Chris Hemsworth goofing around and shit blowing up to see. The second video’s after the jump. (Via Comics Alliance)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
