"Third time's a charm" is the aptest phrase that can be used for Marvel's latest entry into its cinematic universe, Thor: Ragnarok. Returning once again to lead this voyage is Chris Hemsworth, who of the top three characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has had the roughest go at it in his solo adventures. However, with Taika Watiti in the director's chair, Thor: Ragnarok is not only the best Thor films but one of the best Marvel projects to date.
The movie warns of a coming event, Ragnarok, or the end of all things for Asgard (the home realm of our hero). A series of events leads Thor to reunite with his mischievous brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) to find their father Odin (Anthony Hopkins). Odin warns them of a coming danger, Hela (Cate Blanchett) whose past is as mysterious as it is violent. She casts our heroes out of their homeworld and they are forced onto an unfamiliar planet that focuses on gladiatorial sports for entertainment above all else. There Thor rekindles his friendship with The Hulk/Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) and meets new allies Valkeryie (Tessa Thompson) and Korg (voiced by Taika Watiti). Together they work to escape their captors and take on Hela and reclaim Asgard.
Budget: $180 Million
