Thor is about to become king, but the harmonic convergence is upon them and he needs to first restore peace. The convergence happens only every 5000 years and during it the nine realms aline and become extremely vulnerable. One man tried to destroy all of the universes during the previous convergence - a dark elf by the name of Malekith.
Guardians of the Galaxy, so if you are not sure what is going on, just do a quick Google search. I personally I used this article, which helped me a lot: click here to read the article by Drew McWeeny on hitfix.com. An most importantly, the credits end in "Thor Will Return", while three years back it was "Thor Will Return In The Avengers" - so either there is an extra movie somewhere or he will he guest starring in something else? Who knows :)
So, I believe that this movie is completely worth watching in theaters, I don't really see why one should skip it. It is for me personally the best one out of the franchise so far. And I missed Natalie Portman so much and she was great in it! If I get my hands on some more money, I'll be sure to see it again on the big screen!
Till the next item on my list!
