"Honk if you love Thor," the marketing team could have branded on billboards around Hollywood, because honk they will, if only for the traffic rat king that's sure to irk Monday's commuters, crosswalkers and joyriders in advance of the premiere. Heads up, motorists (and pedestrians), a full street closure has been announced for all lanes of Hollywood Boulevard tomorrow between Highland Avenue and Orange Drive.

On the occasion of the Thor Premiere, the closure shall go into effect Monday, May 2 at 6:00 a.m. and last until early Tuesday, May 3 at 1:00 a.m. The mid-block crosswalk will also closed beginning at 4:00 p.m. until 1:00 a.m., and the sidewalk on the south side of the street in front of the El Capitan will be closed from 5:00-8:00 p.m.

The secondary problem? How can I possibly be expected to see this movie when these videos are the only thing that comes to mind when the name Thor gets thrown around?
