Current “Thor: Ragnarok” duration revealed

Directed by Taika Waititi


At San Diego Comic-Con International 2017, Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi revealed to ColliderVideos the duration of his rough cut:

“The cut right now, I reckon is probably about 100 minutes. It’s not gonna be a very, very long film. I think that stories are better when you leave them wanting more and this film moves at a clip, it’s got stuff happening all the time, and I think people are still gonna feel exhausted by the end, they’ve been on a big journey, so I don’t think the film needs to be 3 hours.”

If Thor: Ragnarok is 100 minutes, it will be the shortest Marvel Studios film. Previous Marvel Studios films run times, in descending order (according to the British Board of Film Classification):

  • Captain America: Civil War 146 minutes
  • Marvel’s The Avengers 143 minutes
  • Avengers: Age of Ultron 141 minutes
  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 137 minutes
  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier 136 minutes
  • Spider-Man: Homecoming 133 minutes
  • Iron Man Three 131 minutes
  • Captain America: The First Avenger 124 minutes
  • Iron Man/Guardians of the Galaxy 121 minutes
  • Iron Man 2 119 minutes
  • Ant-Man 117 minutes
  • Doctor Strange 115 minutes
  • Thor: The Dark World 112 minutes
  • The Incredible Hulk/Thor 110 minutes

Thor: Ragnarok is the 5th film in Phase Three, and will be released in the United States 3rd November 2017.

First “Alien: Covenant” trailers

“Saban’s Power Rangers” releases international trailer

From a story by Executive Producer Roberto Orci (“Transformers”, “Star Trek” and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”) and screenwriters Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller (“X-Men: First Class”and “Thor”) comes a modern reinvention of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, a group of ordinary high school kids who find themselves infused with extraterrestrial powers and must harness those powers as a team to save the world.

Comic Book have released the international trailer for Saban’s Power Rangers. With less than a minute of footage, and with most shots having already been included in October’s initial trailer, the international trailer doesn’t reveal many new things, however, the editing is slightly different. More emphasis is placed on the Power Coins: these are the artefacts that allow the Power Rangers to morph into their warrior form; the original Power Coins were literal coins emboldened with prehistoric creatures – the new Power Coins are amber rocks that morph into the armour that covers each Power Ranger. This international trailer eliminates most of the dialogue from October’s trailer, and is more fast-paced and action-focused. So far, neither trailer has shown footage of Bryan Cranston or Bill Hader, who both feature. As an international trailer, Japanese subtitles are included.

While the official release date is 24th March 2017, this international trailer states the release date to be 15th July 2017.
