I know it's his character, but it feels a bit odd seeing this trailer and then...spoiler ahead...




----



Seeing Loki seemingly betray the Avengers to Thanos in the leaked Infinity War trailer.
It's a possibility for sure but also unlikely at the same time. Loki wants power to rule but Thanos seems unlikely to share power, so what would Loki have to gain?
Tis banana is IRIE :razz:

10% off is cold, 50% off is warm, 75% off is hot, but FREE IS RFD!

Japanese trailer seems to show a lot of what I guess is the third act



io9 states it's called Thor: Battle Royale in Japan

That's pretty normal. They usually release tickets for the big tentpole movies a few months in advance.

That's a really good move on Disney/Marvel to get the jump start against Warner Bros. "Justice League" opening on November 17th, just two weeks after "Thor: Ragnarok" opening.

Most comic book fans will see both so I don't think its a jumpstart.

Based on the theatre bookings, at least Thor is playing second fiddle in Toronto. It's booked for IMAX at Yonge and Dundas and I suspect JL will be at Scotiabank.

2 months out is really early though. Most big movies start selling tickets about 1 month prior to release. While Thor 3 looks promising, it's hardly going to be a massive box office juggernaut. I don't see it outgrossing GotG Vol. 2, let alone Wonder Woman. Justice League coming out two weeks later will also cut into its grosses.

Why does Thor need to do better than Wonder Woman or Guardians. The last two were okay performers and they still made a 3rd one.

By big movies I really only meant Marvel and Star Wars.... lol. There some other exceptions (like Wonder Woman) but most of the movies making money right now seem to be Marvel or SW related. Hence those ones have the craziest lead times. I agree that Thor is one of the less popular of the marvel universe, but I think any Marvel movie at this point gets a gigantic presale.

I didn't say it needed to. I'm sure it'll do well; it'll probably be the highest grossing of the series. It's just that there isn't sufficient demand to get tickets for Thor 3 to justify selling them two months in advance.

Marvel's still afraid to do a standalone Hulk movie. I know the previous ones didn't do well, but the team is doing better these days.

IMO "best Thor movie" isn't such a high bar
Third time is tracking to be a charm (if you believe the prognosticators)

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-v ... ut-1048049

Not always accurate with the Blade Runner sequel being the latest example
OTOH IIRC successive Iron Man and Captain America movies also did better than their previous installments
Looking at boxofficemojo IM2 did worse than IM domestically but better worldwide
