To celebrate the release of the latest blockbuster adventure from the ‘Mighty Avenger’, THOR THE DARK WORLD, Marvel and Walt Disney Studios are marking the return of darkness to the UK by hosting an exclusive first look screening of the film as the clocks go back in the early hours of Sunday October 27th, giving fans the first chance to see the film ahead of its UK release on October 30th 2013.
Taking place in Greenwich, the epicentre of GMT and key filming location in THOR THE DARK WORLD the film will be screened exclusively to fans who will get the chance to win tickets via Marvel UK’s social channels and exclusive competitions.
Fans will be treated to a midnight reception in the magnificent Painted Hall at the Old Royal Naval College – a key location used within the film – before being some of the first in the UK to see the new movie from Marvel Studios, the creators of this year’s blockbuster sensation, Iron Man 3 and one of the biggest films of all time, Marvel’s Avengers Assemble. The film will begin at 1am – the exact moment that clocks around the UK are turned back one hour plunging UK nights back into darkness.
THOR: THE DARK WORLD continues the big screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that pre-dates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s Thor and Marvel’s Avengers Assemble, Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
The Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, setting of a major battle scene in THOR THE DARK WORLD, is one of London’s most iconic sites. The stunning Painted Hall, which took its artist almost 20 years to complete, is the jewel in its crown. Fans not lucky enough to win tickets to this exclusive event can still visit Sir Christopher Wren’s masterpiece to see where the scenes were filmed as it is open to the public daily.
THOR THE DARK WORLD IS RELEASED IN CINEMAS ACROSS THE UK AND IRELAND FROM OCTOBER 30TH 2013.
