Thor: Ragnarok is a 2017 American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character Thor, produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. It is the sequel to Thor: The Dark World (2013) and the seventeenth film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film is scheduled to be released in the United States on November 3, in 3D, IMAX and IMAX 3D.
Thor Ragnorak’s director, Taika Waititi, doesn’t come from a typical action movie background. A bit like Guardians of the Galaxy’s James Gunn and Captain America’s Russo brothers, Waititi’s career is rooted in comedy and indie films (Flight of the Conchords, What We Do in the Shadows, Hunt for the Wilder people).
To set Robert Plant’s otherworldly howl to a fight sequence between Norse gods makes perfect sense. But Led Zeppelin has a mixed history when it comes to licensing their work. For a long time, it was notoriously difficult to get permission to use one of their songs. When this particular track was used in 2003’s School of Rock, Jack Black had to personally beg for it after director Richard Linklater failed to persuade them. The response from the kids was remarkable, and we had a great time. ‘Immigrant Song’ was about that trip, and it was the opening track on the album that was intended to be incredibly different.”
