Thor: Ragnarok - Here's What The Critics Are Reacting
Posted 2017/10/09 2757 0
The critics have got a chance to talk about the film on social media, and it seems like things are looking good.
Disney and Marvel have held their first media screening for Thor: Ragnarok, and allowed press to talk about the movie on social media ahead of official reviews, weeks before the film hits theatres. And that gamble seems to be paying off. Critics who caught the earliest screenings are falling all over themselves to praise the new adventure as one of the funniest, zaniest MCU entries yet. Let’s check out their reactions:
"Imprisoned on the other side of the universe, the mighty Thor finds himself in a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against the Hulk, his former ally and fellow Avenger. Thor's quest for survival leads him in a race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home world and the Asgardian civilization."
Directed by Taika Waititi with a screenplay by Eric Pearson and the writing team of Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost, Thor: Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo, and Anthony Hopkins. The movie is scheduled to premiere in Los Angeles on October 10, 2017 and will be released in the United States on November 3, 2017
Marvel Studios has had a lot of success with critics ever since the debut of Jon Favreau's Iron Man back in 2008 (they've yet to make a film that has received a 'Rotten' score on Rotten Tomatoes), and it would appear that Taika Waititi's Thor: Ragnarok won't be breaking that streak. The full review embargo isn't lifting for a little while now, but stay tuned for that!
