The film is the next instalment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
When it comes to 'Thor' solo movies, the God of Thunder hasn't done incredibly well in the past, but did enough to make a good impression on fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now, returning for a third solo outing in 'Thor: Ragnarok', there's a lot of excitement building about exactly what we'll see when the film hits the big screen.
Jeff Goldblum stars in 'Thor: Ragnarok'
Looking more colourful and more exciting than ever before, it's now been revealed by the film's director Taika Waititi that the movie could even serve as a complete reboot of the 'Thor' series.

With his friends and his hammer, Thor is virtually unbeatable by any creature in the known universe. But what about when he doesn't have either of those things? It only takes a run-in with afterlife goddess Hela for his hammer to be destroyed, apparently beyond repair. And when he is kidnapped by her people and taken to the planet Sakaar, he has no choice but to enter into a gladiator match to save the people of Asgard from Ragnarök; the fate of total destruction. To his initial delight, and to the confusion of everyone in the arena, his opponent turns out to be none other than the Incredible Hulk. But when he realises that this Hulk is hell-bent on destroying him, he realises that he has no choice but to fight his supposed friend to the death.

Jeff Goldblum and Idris Elba join the ensemble cast on 'Thor: Ragnarok'
It looks like Thor might finally have met his match with the arrival of dark underworld queen Hela. The new trailer for 'Thor: Ragnarok' sees him lose his legendary hammer to her power, and face off against an unlikely opponent who is the last person he wants to fight.
Chris Hemsworth as Thor in Thor: Ragnarok
This Norse god never thought he'd be pitted against his most physically powerful ally, but when he finds himself all armoured-up in an arena against a very angry and ruthless Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), he knows that both their survival is unlikely. In fact, his own survival is unlikely now that he has no hammer.

Aside from being flat-out hilarious, this vampire-themed reality TV spoof actually has some pungent things to say about friendship in the 21st century. Not that it's ever trying to make a point. The goal of Kiwi filmmaker-stars Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi (known for the TV series Flight of the Conchords and the film Eagle vs Shark) is simply to poke fun at the genre while keeping the audience in fits of knowing laughter. And it's a relentlessly entertaining romp.
In Wellington, a camera crew decks itself out in crucifixes to protect itself before heading to a house shared by four vampires. The house's self-proclaimed leader is the preening dandy Viago (Waititi), who tells off the others for neglecting their chores. Brooding lover Vladislav (Clement) is annoyed that he's not as powerful as he was 800 years ago. Deacon (Jonathan Brugh) is a good-time boy who hates Viago's rules. And Petyr (Ben Fransham) is 8,000 years old and prefers to lurk menacingly in the basement. Then they meet Nick (Cori Conzalez-Macuer), a new vampire who with his human pal Stu (Stuart Rutherford) helps the flatmates understand more about present-day society as they prepare for the social event of the season, the annual Unholy Masquerade Ball.
Like a reality TV show, the film meanders through the lives of these men as they face everyday issues with a pronounced vampire slant. For example, going out for a night on the town isn't easy: first, you can't see yourself in the mirror to get ready, then you have to be formally invited to enter any bar or club, and finally if you hit a major artery while feeding the mess is a nightmare to clean up. Deacon has another problem with his human slave Jackie (Jackie van Beek), who is tired of being strung along with promises of immortality. And the local pack of werewolves is seriously annoying.

Ever wondered what the life of a hundred-plus-year-old vampire would be like in the 21st century? A documentary crew were granted protection as they gained access to the household of a group of blood-sucking fiends - who aren't as scary as you'd imagine. There's polite dandy Viago, bad boy Deacon and ladies' man Vladislav and they all live together in a dilapidated flat with their ancient Nosferatu like friend Petyr and all the problems that regular flatmates share. Desperate to connect with the modern world, they meet young tearaway Nick who soon causes them more than enough trouble. Things get a little tense when the group frequently invite their human technophile friend Stu over to help them with phones, computers, TVs etc., with, unusually, absolutely no intention of killing him. Not only that, but they soon find themselves amid a rivalry with the local werewolves.

New Zealand filmmaker Jemaine Clement unveils a truly hilarious vampire mockumentary.
Fans of 'Flight Of The Conchords', brace yourself for yet more eye-watering hilarity as creator and star Jemaine Clement brings you the only vampire movie you're going to need to see this year (and, probably, ever again), 'What We Do In The Shadows'.
A hilarious cast makes vampire comedy 'What We Do In The Shadows'
That charming deadpan New Zealand humour that we loved so much in 'Conchords' makes its return in this wonderfully satirical mockumentary about three vampire flatmates who bring in some fresh blood and consequently start to feel the strain of immortality. A camera crew has been granted access to this undead underworld, whereby they meet Viago, Vladislav and Deacon who, apart from having pointy teeth, a thirst for blood, no reflections and the power of levitation, live really rather ordinary lives, going out clubbing in their waking hours and struggling with the housework rota.
Wellington, New Zealand. A documentary film crew were granted access into a secret society. Said society is situated in a Wellington apartment, and centres around three vampires. Viago (Taika Waititi), an '18th Century Dandy, Vladislav (Jemaine Clement), 'a bit of a pervert', and Deacon (Jonathan Brugh), 'the bad boy of the group', all live together and argue about chores and various little squabble that often plague housemates. When they add Nick (Cori Gonzalez-Macuer) to their ranks, his fooling around and amazement at the powers he now possesses are highly annoying for the other vampires. The four clash, with hilarious consequences.

Everything Eagle vs Shark tries to do, Napoleon Dynamite already did, and did better, funnier. Dynamite has proven itself as the contemporary standard-bearer for this sort of comedy -- the absurdist geek romance, deadpan in tone, and peopled with quirky but sweet-natured characters.
Continue reading: Eagle Vs Shark Review
Eagle vs. Shark, directed by Academy AwardÂ®-nominee Taika Waititi (the short, Two Cars On Night), is a wry comedy that chronicles the quirky romance of two awkward misfits, Lily (Loren Horsley), a shy fast-food restaurant cashier, and her crush, Jarrod (Jemaine Clement, HBO's One Night Stand: the Fight of the Conchords), an electronic store clerk.
