Having helmed The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron, as well as stepping in to oversee reshoots and complete post-production on Zack Snyder’s Justice League, there’s no question that writer and director Joss Whedon certainly knows a thing or two about superhero movies. And he’s now taken to Twitter to sing the praises of the latest, stating that Taika Waititi and Marvel have created a “modern masterpiece” with Thor: Ragnarok.

Posted on Author RachelComments Off on “12 Strong” Official Trailer and Screen Captures
Chris Hemsworth is back on our screens next week in Thor: Ragnarok, which finds him in fun Marvel battle mode. Things look to be a little more serious in the first trailer for 12 Strong, which is now online.
Formerly known as Horse Soldiers (and that is still reflected in the movie’s subtitle, The Declassified True Story Of The Horse Soldiers), 12 Strong tells the true story of a small band of American soldiers in Afghanistan joining forces with local Afghan troops to fight the Taliban on horseback, navigating the unforgiving terrain with World War I-era tactics. Take a look at the trailer below and head over to the gallery for the latest additions.
Posted on Author RachelComments Off on “Thor: Ragnarok” Impresses on Rotten Tomatoes
Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok is off to a thundering start with early reviews indicating that the newest addition to the Thor trilogy may just be the best yet!
Some of that may be down to directer Taika Waititi, whose unique sense of humour and emphasis on Jack Kirby-influenced visuals plays on the successes of Guardians of the Galaxy whilst carving a niche that only Taika could fill. Revitalising the character, continuing the arc of the Hulk and bringing in brand new Marvel characters like Valkyrie, Ragnarok has the potential to catch lightning in a bottle.
And, based upon the film’s Rotten Tomatoes rating, this may not only be the best Thor to date, but also the best the MCU has to offer. Currently sitting at 98%, Ragnarok is ahead of the competition, with the closest competitor being the first Iron Man sitting at 95%. It’ll be interesting to see how those stats change from here, but Hemsworth’s latest outing as the God of Thunder may well prove to be Marvel’s most critically successful release yet.
Rotten Tomatoes currently pitches the blockbuster as: “Exciting, funny, and above all fun, Thor: Ragnarok is a colorful cosmic adventure that sets a new standard for its franchise and the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”
