'Thor: The Dark World' - the second instalment in Marvel Studios' Thor franchise - is now available to watch on TalkTalk Box Office.

TalkTalk TV customers with a YouView set-top box can watch the super-hero movie - which was released in cinemas in 2013 - on-demand for just £3.50.

Directed by Alan Taylor, the film has a stellar cast including Chris Hemsworth - who plays the title character - Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, and Stellan Skarsgård.

In the first film - released in 2011 - Thor, the crown prince of Asgard, is exiled from his homeland to earth, where he forms a relationship with scientist Jane Foster.

He is tasked with preventing his adopted brother Loki (Hiddleston) from ascending to the throne in Asgard.

In 'Thor: The Dark World', Thor and Loki must team up to save the Nine Realms from the Dark Elves led by the evil Malekith (Eccleston).

He is out for revenge, and is intent on plunging the universe into darkness.

"Thor’s back - and he’s embarking on his most perilous and personal journey yet," TalkTalk noted.

The TV provider hails the film's "brilliant action" and "lots of laughs", describing it as the "must-see movie of the week" on TalkTalk Box Office.

But how exactly do TalkTalk TV customers rent movies via their YouView box?

The process is simple - first press the 'TalkTalk' button on your remote control and then scroll along to the 'Film' section in the TalkTalk Player bar.

Select the film you’d like to watch using the arrow buttons and press 'OK'. This takes you to the payment screen where you are given a choice of rental options.

You will be able to choose to rent the film for a one-off 24-hour or 48-hour period, with the price shown on the screen.

To complete the purchase, simply insert your TalkTalk PIN when prompted - this will provide access to your movie of choice.

"Each rental you take out will be available to watch as many times as you like for up to 48 hours at a time and the price of the rental will then be added to your monthly TalkTalk bill," TalkTalk explained.

"Most new films will become available on the day they are released on DVD, so you won’t fall behind on the latest releases."
