Thor cast surprises lucky moviegoers with “cardboard-budget” play and deliberately horrible acting

Drinks and snacks ready, but what if you are about to watch a movie in the theatres, and suddenly Hollywood actors are in front of you, live?

Well, it did happen to a batch of (very lucky) unsuspecting moviegoers, as Chris Hemsworth himself fought the “cardboard Hulk” in between the seats; grabbing some of their popcorn in the process.

James Corden, The Late Late Show host have put the entire star-studded cast of Thor:Ragnarok in a school play version of the hit movie.

The idea behind, according to Corden was: “Cinema is always evolving. movies used to be silent and we got sound, they were black and white and we got color, then it was IMAX in 3D. and… people was asking me they say James, you’re a visionary and I say huh, and they say no you are, and I go stop it, they go no you are, what’s next? And I think about it and I tell them, 4D action, literally leaping off the screen! But like any game-changer I have skeptics, so I’m gonna prove my genius today, the Pacific Theatres of The Grove is holding a screening of Thor: Ragnarok and they agree to help me bring 4D to the people.”

Just minutes after the movie started, the moviegoers were interrupted when the scene was cut, then Corden appeared on stage. Acting as the narrator, he then introduced and brought out each member of the cast in their movie roles, complete with a very small fraction of their actual costume cost. Corden started with Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Tom Hiddleston (Loki), before introducing Cate Blanchett (Hela), Jeff Goldblum (The Grandmaster), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk) and Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie) to the stunned audience.

Highlights  include Hela crushing the Mjolnir carton, The hulk struggling with his misworn Hulk fists, but like the movie itself, it’s better to watch the video to avoid spoilers. Also, like the real movie, it’s comedy-filled as much as it’s action-packed:
