Which “Avengers: Infinity War” Storyline is Anthony Russo Most Excited For?

Judging from the first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, there is a metric-ton to be excited about. There is so much going on in the footage, that it’s hard to pick just one moment that stands out. Well, what about the creators of the film? What’s their favorite part of the movie? It turns out, director Anthony Russo has his pick. Speaking to Comicbook.com, the Avengers: Infinity War co-director reveals that he is on team Thor:

“I’m going to pick Thor because Thor, we’re picking up his story from the end of Thor: Ragnarok and at the end of that film as any fan would know his home planet of Asgard is destroyed, and so the character is in new territory so to speak, because his past has been torn away from him to a degree.”

Anthony also spoke about Thor’s evolution in the movie, stating that: “I think it’s very similar to Captain America’s situation when we picked up his story in Winter Solider when Joe and I came on to do our first movie for Marvel. Cap was in a place where we were very much catching him up in the modern world and seeing what that meant to him, and figuring out how you move a character that far forward and that far away from where they started back during the 40s, so I think in Thor we have similar opportunities with that character in this movie is that he’s going through a radical transformation and he’s moving forward in a way where he can never go back, and that’s always a fun place to be with a character as a storyteller.”

Luke Bracey Spills About Chris Hemsworth

Australian actor, Luke Bracey sat down for an interview with Marie Claire Australia and was asked about his friendship with Chris Hemsworth. Take a look below:

MC: You used to be flatmates with Chris Hemsworth. Is that right?
LB: Not flatmates but we had the same manager in the States. He lived at our manager’s house when he was starting out. And Liam [Hemsworth], his brother lived there too. I was the third person to live there. After I did Point Break he kind of shut the house and went, ‘good the house is done now; no more guests’ kind of thing. So we weren’t really flatmates but I guess we’re both part of a small little legacy that Chris started.

MC: Chris Hemsworth has done so well…
LB: All of us young blokes [in LA] trying to get into the business and get started are really proud of Chris. He’s a great bloke. He’s a hard worker, he’s super talented and I think we’re all very proud of him as an ambassador for Australia all around the world.

MC: And you’re hot on his heels…!
LB: Yeah, I’m trying. To be mentioned in the same sentence as him is pretty flattering. You know, he’s really going gangbusters. If I can follow his trail that he’s blazing, I’ll be pretty happy.

“Avengers: Infinity War” Trailer Smashes Viewing Records

If you watched the Avengers: Infinity War trailer multiple times to catch all the details — Cap’s beard! Wakanda! The Guardians of the Galaxy! — you weren’t alone: The first trailer for the upcoming Marvel blockbuster racked up more than 200 million views in 24 hours, setting a new record for the most trailer views in a single day.

After debuting Wednesday morning, the Infinity War trailer earned 230 million views in its first day, according to Marvel. Infinity War’s record viewership dethrones the previous champion, It, which earned 197 million views when the first trailer dropped earlier this year.

The trailer for the third Avengers film finds the tyrannical Thanos (Josh Brolin) making his way to Earth in search of the powerful Infinity Stones. The first footage follows some of Marvel’s mightiest heroes — including Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), and Spider-Man (Tom Holland) — as they team up to take Thanos down.

Avengers: Infinity War will hit theaters May 4, 2018. (Source)

“Thor: Ragnarok” Continues Box Office Reign

Disney-Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok is set to continue its reign at the box office in its second weekend with $61.3 million at 4,080 North American locations.

Fox’s Agatha Christie adaptation Murder on the Orient Express will open nearly neck-and-neck with Paramount’s comedy sequel Daddy’s Home 2, with “Murder” looking to bring in around $28.1 million from 3,341 locations and “Daddy’s 2” to pull in $27.3 million from 3,575 sites.

The third Thor movie ended a monthlong box office slump last weekend when it opened with $122.7 million, the fourth-best launch of 2017, so a decline of under 50% is well above the norm. Directed by Taika Waititi, “Thor: Ragnarok” stars Chris Hemsworth as the title character, with Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, and Jeff Goldblum. (Source)

Chris Shares In Memoriam Tribute to Mjolnir

One of the major developments in Thor: Ragnarok was spoiled in the film’s very first trailer: the fact that Thor’s beloved hammer Mjolnir is destroyed. This wasn’t a huge spoiler as the development happens early in the film, but it is a great example of how Marvel and director Taika Waititi decided to strip Chris Hemsworth’s superhero of pretty much everything to bring the character down to his basics. By the film’s end the loss of Mjolnir makes sense and the journey that Thor has gone on has not only made him a better person, but also a stronger one. Still, it may be a little weird to see Thor without his hammer in upcoming Marvel movies (unless they bring it back, which is entirely possible but would be a bummer), and given that Hemsworth knows just how much Mjolnir meant to Thor, he shared a really funny “In Memoriam” tribute video to his beloved hammer.

The video features clips from Thor’s time in the MCU wielding his weapon of choice before wrapping up with one of the funniest bits from Thor: Ragnarok (so yes, this is actually a piece of marketing disguised as a “fun” video—but it’s still fun!). The only major ‘complaint’ is they didn’t include Kat Dennings saying “meow meow”, during Thor: The Dark World.

Anway, check out the Mjolnir tribute video below, and if you haven’t seen Thor: Ragnarok yet do it. It’s delightful. (Source)

“Thor: Ragnarok” Dominates Box Office Opening Weekend

Thor: Ragnarok may spell trouble for the realm of Asgard, but it brings good news for the box office. Disney and Marvel’s third solo movie starring Chris Hemsworth as the god of thunder is on track to gross an estimated $121 million in the U.S. and Canada over its first weekend, easily conquering the competition while heralding Hollywood’s first big opening in several weeks.

Ragnarok‘s haul represents the fourth-largest debut of 2017, behind Beauty and the Beast ($174.8 million), Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($146.5 million), and It ($123.4 million). It also crushes the openings of 2011’s Thor ($65.7 million) and 2013’s Thor: The Dark World ($85.7 million), and edges out the most recent installment of the Marvel cinematic universe, Spider-Man: Homecoming ($117 million).

Directed by with a distinctly humorous tone by Taika Waititi and boasting a powerhouse cast — including Cate Blanchett, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddeslton, and Tessa Thompson — Ragnarok received glowing reviews and garnered an A CinemaScore, indicating good word of mouth. The threequel, which reportedly cost $180 million to make, has likewise fared well overseas, tallying about $306 million since it began rolling out last week. (Source)
