Taika Waititi’s foray into the Marvel Cinematic Universe has come to an end, as filming wraps on Thor: Ragnarok. This Hulk-centric entry in the Thor canon certainly appears to have taken some detours from the previous films—with What We Do In The Shadows’ Waititi at the helm, it’s already poised to be much more lighthearted than Thor: The Dark World, for one. And, as we’ve previously reported, the new film will have a buddy/road-trip comedy vibe, as well as that long-awaited Jeff Goldblum and Sam Neill reunion.
But Waititi hasn’t forgotten what “Ragnarok” means: He’s brought Cate Blanchett on to give ’em Hela as the first lead female villain in the McU, and it also looks like he’s added an antagonist for Mean Green. Just yesterday, the director took fans on a Marvel-sanctioned Facebook Live video tour of the set on his »

Marvel Studios has wrapped production on its third superhero offering of 2017, with director Taika Waititi taking to Facebook to share a video from the set of Thor: Ragnarok, where he’s joined by the God of Thunder himself Chris Hemsworth, alongside new McU addition Tessa Thompson, who is playing the character of Valkyrie. Take a look at the video here…
Thor: Ragnarok is being directed by Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows) and features Marvel veterans Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Idris Elba as Heimdall and Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk alongside Cate Blanchett as Hela, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster, Karl Urban as Skurge and Sam Neill in an as-yet-unrevealed role. It is set for release on November 3rd, 2017. »

Shooting has officially wrapped of Taika Waititi‘s Thor sequel Thor: Ragnarok and the director has released a new tour video of the set featuring most of the main cast. The video was originally posted to Facebook live and shows off the “a sci-fi space wasteland, a spaceland”.
Thor: Ragnarok will debut as Marvel’s last movie of 2017, releasing in about a year’s time – next November. Idris Elba, Anthony Hopkins, Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, Karl Urban and Mark Ruffalo are all expected to appear in the film. Sam Neill is also expected to have a small role on the film.
More as it comes in.

Earlier this week director Taika Waititi sent another photo out from the set of Thor: Ragnarok on Twitter, teasing that there are just two days left of production. Today is in fact the last day, and to celebrate production wrapping, the filmmaker gave fans a tour from the set through Facebook Live, which includes a few special guests, Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, and Tessa Thompson, although they are not in full costume.
The Facebook video is just over 13 minutes long, which starts with what looks like a peaceful lake environment, but as the director pans over, we see quite a bit of wreckage in this intergalactic junkyard set. We also see a number of actors wearing elaborate costumes, but who exactly they're playing in Thor 3 is anyone's guess, and it's not clear how these characters and this set fit into the story. What's also intriguing is, while Tessa Thompson »
Director Taika Waititi has been keeping fans posted on his Marvel Phase 3 adventure Thor: Ragnarok, ever since filming began on the 4th of July in Australia. Now it seems that production is coming to a close, with Taika Waititi posting what may be one of his last photos from the set, featuring the filmmaker flanked by the chairs used by Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth). According to the director, there are just two days left of principal photography on this superhero sequel.
The director posted his latest photo on Twitter this morning, stating that he's "gonna miss this pair of idiots." It isn't known when Marvel plans on unveiling the first trailer for Thor: Ragnarok yet, but, last week, a fan trailer surfaced that quickly went viral and got fans even more excited for this sequel. Until we get news on the first trailer, this latest photo from »
I know the Ocean's gang consisting of George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Elliot Gould and more is close to your heart, but we're in a new age, and it’s time for a new team of thieves to rob casinos and museums. We will be getting that new team in Ocean’S Eight, which replaces the boy's club with a group of talented actresses including Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Mindy... Read More »

First spotted by Coming Soon, in the gallery above you’ll be able to catch a glimpse of Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett hitting up the Big Apple – and little else. What we do know is that Bullock and Blanchett will anchor the crime caper as co-leads, assuming George Clooney and Brad Pitt-esque roles, if you like. The ensemble for Ocean’s Eight will be filled out by Sarah Paulson, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling and Awkwafina.
Taking the reins from franchise creator Steven Soderbergh – he’s still on board to produce – Ross has been quick to stress in the past that this reimagining is very »

Back in August, we reported that the highly-anticipated all-female spin-off Ocean's Eight will begin principal photography sometime this October in New York City, under the direction of Gary Ross. Today we have the first photos from the set as filming got under way yesterday, with our first look at Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett and Helena Bonham Carter. It isn't known exactly how long filming is expected to last for, but Warner Bros. has already set a June 8, 2018 release date, going up against Transformers 6.
The photos surfaced on various Twitter accounts yesterday, with both Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett spotted together in the Big Apple. While no plot details have been confirmed, it is believed that Sandra Bullock is playing the ex-con sister of George Clooney's Danny Ocean, with Cate Blanchett playing a character similar to Brad Pitt's Rusty Ryan from Ocean's Eleven. These photos also give us our »
It's hard to believe, but Cate Blanchett and Sandra Bullock have never been in a movie together before. Yet here they are on the NYC set of Ocean's Eight on Monday, palling around like old friends. Sure, they've probably sat at tables together at numerous award shows, but the upcoming Ocean's Eleven spinoff is their first time being credited as costars. Previously titled Ocean's Ocho, the movie is being called Ocean's Eight and includes the very strange cast of Bullock, Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter (who you can also see in these set pictures), Mindy Kaling, and Rihanna. Needless to say, we can't wait to see more pictures. Take a look! »

The first images from the set of the in-production Ocean’s 8 are now online. Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett, who headline the movie, have been spotted on the streets of New York City shooting the vert first scenes from the film, which will hit cinemas next year.
Gary Ross (also pictured in the first image) is directing the film, which will also star Sarah Paulson, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling and Awkwafina. The film will actually be a continuation of the Ocean’s story with Bullock playing Danny Ocean’s (George Clooney – who doesn’t appear) ex-con sister. She forms a team of thieves to steal a necklace from the Met Ball in order to frame a villainous gallery owner.
Check out the first images below.

We're pretty excited for the Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett-led Ocean's retooling here at The Film Experience - no surprise considering the cast also includes Sarah Paulson, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter, Rihanna, and Awkwafina. Can you believe we have to wait almost two years for this thing?!
Well, the film recently began filming and we're of course foaming at the mouth to see our first glimpse of these actresses together! Here are some shots of our headliners in action, with Bullock looking like Miss Congeniality's Gracie Hart back in action but Blanchett giving her audition for a Prince version of I'm Not There. One can hope that costume designer Sarah Edwards (The Last Days of Disco, Michael Clayton) has even more outfits like this for Blanchett to play with.
More looks and thoughts after the jump...

DreamWorks Animation’s “How to Train Your Dragon 3” and “Larrikins” have shifted to Universal Pictures’ slate following NBCUniversal’s completion of its $3.8-billion acquisition of DreamWorks Animation. The two films will keep their previous release dates.
“Larrikins” will hit theaters on Feb. 16, 2018, while “How to Train Your Dragon 3” will launch on May 18, 2018. “Larrikins” is up against tough competition: Disney/Marvel’s “Black Panther.” “Dragon,” meanwhile, currently has the date all to itself.
The star-studded “Larrikins” has an all-Australian voice cast that consists of Margot Robbie, Hugh Jackman, Naomi Watts, Rose Byrne, and Ben Mendelsohn. Tim Minchin and Chris Miller will direct the rock ‘n’ roll musical from a script by Harry Cripps.

Marvel has a lot in store for us in Phase 3, which officially kicked off earlier this year with Captain America: Civil War. Of all the potentially great movies in store for the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Phase 3, Thor: Ragnarok may wind up being one of the best. Even though it isn't official, this new fan trailer shows off some of the massive potential that lies ahead for the third installment of the Thor franchise.
The folks over at We Got This Covered recently uploaded the fan-made trailer for Thor: Ragnarok to their YouTube channel. Absolutely no footage has been released from the movie to the general public from the movie, but fans who were in attendance during Marvel's Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con were treated to an early look. So, this trailer was forced to use footage from other Marvel movies as well as some other random sci-fi and fantasy movies. »
Though they definitely have their moments, Thor and Thor: The Dark World are generally regarded as leaning towards the negative end of Marvel’s movie spectrum, so when a third film, Thor: Ragnarok, was announced, there didn’t really seem to be the type of buzz among the loyal McU fanbase that we usually see. Then, we started to find out a lot more about it, and that all changed.
The prospect of seeing the God of Thunder (Chris Hemsworth) teaming up with The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) to take on Cate Blanchett’s Hela was already an exciting prospect to be sure, and when it was announced that What We Do in the Shadows director Taika Waititi had been selected to helm the picture, fans were mostly impressed by the unconventional choice. Not to mention there’s also the possibility of Doctor Strange popping in for a cameo as well. »

Taika Waititi's Thor: Ragnarok isn't due to hit theaters until around this time next year, so it'll probably be quite some time before we see an official trailer for the Marvel threequel. In the meantime though, we have this fan-made effort from the guys over at We Got This Covered. The trailer uses footage of Thor and The Hulk from their previous Marvel movie appearances, but obviously they had to improvise when it came to the likes of Cate Blanchett's Hela, so her scenes are taken from the first Elizabeth movie and The Lord of the Rings. There are also shots from Immortals and John Carter in there. What do you think? Sound off in the usual place. »

Marion Cotillard has been in the business since the age of 18 and, within the more than two decades of churning out more than 50 feature movies, has rarely — if ever — turned in a bad performance no matter which role she inhabits. And now, with Allied set to hit theaters on November 23, the French-born actress is expected to wow us once more.
Allied, which is directed by Robert Zemeckis, stars Cotillard as a French Resistance fighter named Marianne Beausejour and Brad Pitt as an intelligence officer in North Africa named Max Vatan who begin a relationship while behind enemy lines. The two decide to take their romance to London — where they marry — but their love is tested by the pressures of World War II.
While moviegoers have yet to see anything beyond the teasers and trailers for the Paramount flick, »

I've got to admit it:
I'm more interested in Thor: Ragnarok than I am about any of Marvel's three 2017 releases- which include Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: HomecomingI'm more interested in Thor: Ragnarok than I've been about any of the previous movies about the God of Thunder
Thor: Ragnarok has shaped up in such a way that it's looking to be a big surprise. Let's face it, up to this point, the Thor films have been the runt of the litter when you look at Marvel's main franchises. The two that have come out so far have grossed on the lower end of Marvel's box office hauls, and the reviews have only been so-so (on Rotten Tomatoes, Thor received a 77% and The Dark World received a 66%).

During a Reddit Ama, director Taika Waititi has been discussing his upcoming Marvel Studios blockbuster Thor: Ragnarok, during which he suggested it will be the most “out there” Marvel movie to date, and that it will have a very “Taika-esque” tone.
““I think [Thor: Ragnarok] will be one of the most adventurous and most ‘out there’ of all the Marvel movies. It’s a crazy movie. You can expect a Taika-esque tone. They’ve been very accepting of my style.”
Plot details for Thor: Ragnarok are being kept under wraps, but we do know that it will incorporate elements of the Planet Hulk storyline, with Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) set to take part in gladiatorial games hosted by The Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum). Tom Hiddleston will also reprise the role of Loki, and Cate Blanchett is set to play the villainous Hela, although we don’t yet know how »
