I have added several images from the People’s Choice Awards portrait shoot into the gallery. Chris was crowned Favourite Action Movie Actor at the annual award show earlier in the year. Head over to the gallery for the latest additions
Earlier this week director Taika Waititi sent another photo out from the set of Thor: Ragnarok on Twitter, teasing that there were just two days left of production. To celebrate production wrapping, the filmmaker gave fans a tour from the set through Facebook Live, which includes a few special guests, Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, and Tessa Thompson, although they are not in full costume.
The video is just over 13 minutes long, which starts with what looks like a peaceful lake environment, but as the director pans over, we see quite a bit of wreckage in this intergalactic junkyard set. We also see a number of actors wearing elaborate costumes, but who exactly they’re playing in Thor 3 is anyone’s guess, and it’s not clear how these characters and this set fit into the story. Take a look below:

Posted on Author RachelComments Off on Taika Waititi Calls “Thor: Ragnarok” ‘Out There’
During a Reddit AMA, director Taika Waititi has been discussing his upcoming Marvel Studios blockbuster Thor: Ragnarok, during which he suggested it will be the most “out there” Marvel movie to date, and that it will have a very “Taika-esque” tone.
“I think [Thor: Ragnarok] will be one of the most adventurous and most ‘out there’ of all the Marvel movies. It’s a crazy movie. You can expect a Taika-esque tone. They’ve been very accepting of my style.”
Plot details for Thor: Ragnarok are being kept under wraps, but we do know that it will incorporate elements of the Planet Hulk storyline, with Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) set to take part in gladiatorial games hosted by The Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum). Tom Hiddleston will also reprise the role of Loki, and Cate Blanchett is set to play the villainous Hela, although we don’t yet know how they will factor into the plot.
The movie is set for release on November 3rd, 2017. (Source)
In a recent interview, Oscar-winner Cate Blanchett had nothing but praise for her Thor: Ragnarok team, while sharing a bit of behind-the-scenes intel. Blanchett joined the Marvel movie universe, playing the villainous Hela in Thor 3 opposite Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder and Mark Ruffalo as the green goliath otherwise commonly referred to as The Hulk.
Well, [Mark’s] the greenest of the green! I didn’t get to work so much with Mark, unfortunately. But I did get to work with Chris [Hemsworth] and talk about delightful! He’s just absolutely fabulous. The whole thing was just a riot and fantastic fun. Did you see [director] Taika Waititi’s film, Hunt for the Wilderpeople? Or, What We Do in the Shadows? He’s just got such a sure hand. He’s wonderful, I’d eat him for breakfast if I could. He’s absolutely delicious. And he’s irreverent which is great because Marvel, at its best, has its tongue firmly in its cheek.”
Mark Ruffalo apparently didn’t spend a lot of time with any of the cast members, only occasionally shooting with his leading man Chris Hemsworth against green screen on an Australian soundstage. But the rest of the cast appeared on set together, and Cate Blanchett has nothing but good things to say about that experience. Especially working with Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth.
“He is a big guy! But, you know, you get on the Avengers/Marvel bandwagon – they’re making so many of these behemoths at once – he doesn’t have any time to sort of get chubby. I do love Chris in these movies – he has that really playful side of him that he gets to truck out.
Screen captures from Ghostbusters have been added into the gallery. Directed by Paul Feig, Ghostbusters also stars Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. Head over to the gallery for the latest additions.

Michael Shannon and Chris Hemsworth have signed on to be Jerry Bruckheimer’s Horse Soldiers. Deadline reports that the pair will star together in the mega-producer’s upcoming film of that name, about the early days of the post-9/11 war in Afghanistan, when horse-riding U.S. operatives worked with native warlords to oust the Taliban from its control of the country. The film is based on a book about the soldiers’ exploits, written by Doug Stanton.
Horse Soldiers is being produced by Bruckheimer and Black Label Media, and directed by acclaimed Danish photojournalist Nicolai Fuglsig, a relative newcomer to the world of making films. It presumably won’t be going into production for a while, though, since Hemsworth is currently fulfilling his franchise duties on the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, and Shannon is starring in The Shape Of Water with Guillermo Del Toro, before taking a just-announced role on The Weinstein Company’s historical drama The Current War.

Chris Hemsworth and Cate Blanchett have weighed into the debate on the refugee crisis, calling on governments to increase their foreign aid during a Facebook Live video from their Queensland movie set.
The pair, who are both filming the latest Thor movie on the Gold Coast, appeared live for 30 minutes on the UNHCR — UN Refugee Agency Facebook page last night, where they asked fans to sign the UNHCR’s #WithRefugees petition.
The petition, which has close to 1 million signatures worldwide, calls on governments to “act with solidarity and shared responsibility” to the refugee crisis and will be delivered to UN headquarters in New York ahead of the UN General Assembly high-level summit next Monday.
In the video, Hemsworth acts as the interviewer questioning Blanchett, the UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, about the time she spent with families in refugee camps in Lebanon and Jordan. Take a look below:
Chris has joined UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, Cate Blanchett among the first team of supporters to join #WithRefugees World Tour: Live. The event will take place on Facebook Monday, September 12th 09.00BST!.
