5 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With a little over a week to go until Thor: Ragnarok arrives in UK cinemas, a new clip has debuted from the upcoming blockbuster threequel which sees Cate Blanchett’s Goddess of Death, Hela destroy Mjolnir, much to the surprise of Thor and Loki; check it out below along with three new images featuring Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk, Chris Hemsworth God of Thunder and Taika Waititi’s Korg…

In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok,” Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful threat, the ruthless Hela.

Thor: Ragnarok running time revealed, longest Thor movie to date

15 October 2017 2:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in July, Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi suggested that the upcoming Phase Three blockbuster would run for around 100 minutes, which would have made it the shortest Marvel movie to date.

Well, it turns out that isn’t the case after all, as the BBFC has now revealed the running time to be 130 minutes and 21 seconds. For comparison, the first Thor movie ran for 114 minutes, while 2013’s Thor: The Dark World clocked in at 112 minutes.

It will however be the shortest Marvel movie this year, with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 running at 136 minutes and Spider-Man: Homecoming 133 minutes.

14 October 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sony has Silver & Black, Warner Bros. has Gotham City Sirens, and it seems Marvel could soon have its own female team-up movie, with Thor: Ragnarok star Tessa Thompson revealing during a press conference for the Phase Three blockbuster that she has approached Marvel Studios chief about that very possibility.

“Recently I marched up with a couple of other women who work in Marvel and [asked Kevin] “’How about a movie with some female superheroes? Like all of them,’ said Thompson, with Feige picking up the story and stating that: “It was a pretty amazing moment to be somewhere and have your shoulder be taped and turn around find every female hero we have is standing there going, ‘How about it?’ And I said ‘yes.’”

As The Playlist notes, Marvel has been building its roster of female heroes, including the likes of Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) with The Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), The »

‘The Piano’ Actress Holly Hunter Says Harvey Weinstein’s “Assaultive” Culture Must Be “Eradicated”

13 October 2017 6:51 AM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Holly Hunter, who won an Academy Award for her starring role in the Miramax-distributed The Piano, says the culture exemplified by the downfallen Harvey Weinstein must be “eradicated.” The 1993 Jane Campion-directed film, also starring Harvey Keitel, Sam Neill and Anna Paquin, won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival and three Oscars. The Piano, with its sumptuous look and seriousness of mind, was like a calling card for Miramax at the time, cementing the Weinstein… »

Mark Ruffalo discusses The Hulk’s three-movie arc in Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4

13 October 2017 6:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in January of last year, Mark Ruffalo revealed that in lieu of a solo Hulk movie, Marvel had crafted a three-film arc for the Green Goliath, which will get underway in Thor: Ragnarok, before running through Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4.

Speaking to CinemaBlend to promote the upcoming release of Ragnarok, Ruffalo has revealed that Kevin Feige initially approached him to discuss what he’d like to see from a Hulk solo film, and decided to then work this into the three movies.

“So basically, Kevin [Feige] pulled me aside before this, and said, ‘If you were gonna do a… if we were going to do a standalone Hulk movie, what would it be?’ And I said, ‘I think it should be this, this, this, and this and this, and ends up like this.’ And he’s like, ‘I love that. Why don’t we do that in the next three movies, »

Thor: Ragnarok is tracking $100 million plus opening at the domestic box office

12 October 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Thor: Ragnarok set to open in North America at the start of November, the first tracking figures for the Marvel blockbuster are in, with Deadline reporting that the Taika Waititi-directed threequel is tracking an opening of between $100 million and $110 million.

Even at the lower end of the range, it would comfortably topple Thor: The Dark World’s $85.7 million opening in November 2013, as well as that of Marvel’s 2016 November release Doctor Strange, which debuted to $85 million. The original Thor pulled in $65.7 million in its opening weekend back in 2011.

Thor: Ragnarok could well open bigger than rival 2017 superhero movies Logan ($88.4 million) and Wonder Woman ($103.3 million), but tracking places it behind Spider-Man: Homecoming ($117.0 million) and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($146.5 million).
