Thor Ragnarok scene change

The devil’s in the details, and it looks like some of the details are changing in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok.

Eagle-eyed viewers of the latest Thor: Ragnarok teaser spotted a curious change in a key scene of the upcoming Marvel movie. The much-buzzed-about scene in which Cate Blanchett‘s Hela shatters Thor’s (Chris Hemsworth) hammer Mjolnir has lasting consequences for the rest of the film, but apparently where it takes place is another matter.

In honor of Thor: Ragnarok, the folks at Marvel Studios are celebrating the entire month with a little holiday called Helaween, named for the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first female villain, Hela, the Goddess of Death.

Cate Blanchett is playing the Marvel villain in question, and /Film had the incredible opportunity to sit down with the Oscar-winning actress for an interview during our visit to the set of Thor: Ragnarok in Australia last fall. If you haven’t read our full set report, be sure to check that out. Otherwise, keep reading below to find out everything Cate Blanchett had to tell us about Hela the Goddess of Death, how her vagina made her unafraid of Loki, working with director Taika Waititi, and her possible future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Thor Ragnarok TV Spot

Hot off the heels of our set visit report for Thor: Ragnarok, last night brought the debut of a brand new TV spot for the Marvel Studios sequel featuring a bunch of new footage from the movie, including a poorly conceived name for the team that the god of thunder is putting together in order to stop the goddess of death from destroying Asgard. You’ll see what we’re talking about in the new Thor Ragnarok TV spot below. Read More »

Thor Ragnarok Posters

To go along with our extensive set visit report for Thor: Ragnarok today, Marvel Studios also sent over some bright, colorful new character posters featuring the cast of the cosmic comic book sequel.

Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Tessa Thompson, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Jeff Goldblum and (kinda) Mark Ruffalo all get their own posters, each with an explosion of colored powder surrounding them. Even though character posters may be excessive marketing, at least these look fairly cool.

Thor Ragnarok - Hulk, Thor, Valkyrie and Loki

Back on September 14, 2016, myself and a group of online reporters found themselves hopping through space from the golden realm of Asgard to the vibrant, space trash city called Sakaar. No, we didn’t figure out how to traverse the galaxy, but we did make quite the long journey down to Brisbane, Australia to visit the set of the Marvel Studios sequel Thor: Ragnarok.

As we’ve seen in the trailers for the latest adventure following the God of Thunder (Chris Hemsworth), this time we find Thor a little out of his element. First, his trusty hammer Mjolnir is broken by Hela the goddess of death (Cate Blanchett), who has also started a reign of terror and destruction throughout Asgard. Then he’s been captured by a bounty hunter named Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) on a strange planet called Sakaar, given a haircut and forced to compete in gladiatorial combat against Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), which is controlled by a man called The Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum) who’s hanging around with his brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston). That’s the gist of what we already know about the movie. Would you like to know more?

Andy Serkis Star Wars Character

Andy Serkis‘ Jungle Book: Origins was originally scheduled to come out in October of last year, but it’s been postponed multiple times and is now scheduled for a 2018 release date. The two-year delay does give Serkis’ film more space from Jon Favreau‘s smash hit reimagining of the famous title. As for how the two adaptations differ, Serkis believes his take is more faithful to author Rudyard Kipling‘s original source material.

Below, the War for the Planet of the Apes star explains the differences between Jungle Book: Origins and The Jungle Book.

Ocean's Eight cameo

17 years after Steven Soderbergh gave us one of the most charismatic casts to grace the screen in the 21st century with Ocean’s 11, we’ll see a new team of thieves form in Ocean’s Eight. Director Gary Ross put together a hell of a crew, too, with Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, Awkwafina, Rihanna, and Helena Bonham Carter. One member of Danny Ocean’s gang will appear with them in the film, and now another actor from Soderbergh’s trilogy is now confirmed to join in on the fun.

It’s a cameo, so it’s a spoiler, but if you want to know who else is making an Ocean’s Eight cameo, find out below.

manifesto review 1

It’s hard to pinpoint exactly what Manifesto really is. A collaborative art project? A chance to marvel at the majesty of Cate Blanchett for 90 minutes? A history lesson on the many movements that have swept through art and politics over the decades? This is all true. But is it unmissable? That’s where things get tricky. On the surface, it seems hard to see the appeal of the film outside of the festival circuit. Manifesto might play well to film and art geeks, but will average moviegoers be lured in by seeing Galadriel play dress-up for ninety minutes? It’s unlikely and yet, by digging deeper into just what Manifesto is trying to accomplish, there is room for the film to make a considerable impact on a generation slowly becoming more politically conscious and active with each passing day.
