New Thor: Love And Thunder Trailer Features Christian Bale’s Gorr The God Butcher And He Looks Metal

Marvel Studios has released a new Thor: Love and Thunder trailer that runs more than two minutes long and features a ton of new footage, especially compared to the teaser trailer released last month.  The new trailer features extended looks at scenes from the teaser, like when Thor realizes Jane Foster is back and now wielding Mjolnir. It also contains new footage of Korg, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and the villain of Taika Waititi’s latest Thor film, Gorr the God Butcher. For comic fans, one look at Christian Bale’s Gorr, and it’s immediately apparent that this is a very different take. Gorr is typically more alien-looking but still humanoid. Bale’s Gorr looks very much like a human, and it’s not surprising because if you’re going to hire someone like Bale to play a villain, why not squeeze out as much as you can by reminding folks that this is Bale.  However, regardless of where you fall on “he’s too human” or “I like it,” it’s hard to disagree that Bale’s Gorr is appropriately metal. Right off the bat, Gorr the God Butcher is an incredible title to hold if you’re a villain. Couple that with his first announcement – that all gods need to die, including Thor – and his design, which features black-tipped fingers, a planet-shattering weapon, and a black liquid that runs out of his mouth, and Gorr might be the most metal MCU villain yet.    For more, watch the first Thor: Love and Thunder teaser trailer and then listen to this episode of From Panel To Podcast, which is Game Informer’s comic book podcast, to hear us talk about Thor: Love and Thunder.  What did you think of this trailer?

This is definitely a case where there’s real consequence, there’s real victims.He added, “One of the things that [series creator] James [Wan] and I connected on while making The Curse of La Llorona was sharing a lot of the same favorite movies, and one of them is Se7en,” says the director. “We both love that movie, and so when he came to me with this script, he basically was like, ‘It’s Se7en, but in the Conjuring universe.’ And he knew that was like catnip for me.”RELATED: Exclusive: Bonnie Aarons on The Nun Sequel & 20 Years in the Horror GenreThe threequel tells the chilling story of terror, murder and unknown evil that shocked even experienced real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren.

    Stanley Tucci and John Bradley Join Roland Emmerich’s Moonfall

    Stanley Tucci and John Bradley Join Roland Emmerich’s Moonfall According to Deadline, Stanley Tucci and John Bradley have signed on for Roland Emmerich’s Moonfall just in time for production to kick off in Montreal this month. The duo join a cast that includes Patrick Wilson, Halle Berry, Charlie Plummer and Randy Thomas. Tucci will play a character called Tom Phillips, described as a rich car dealer who is married to Wilson’s ex-wife, while Bradley will play KC Houseman — a role previously filled by Josh Gad until scheduling conflicts forced him out of the picture — the eccentric genius who discovers that the moon has fallen out of its orbit. In Moonfall, a mysterious force knocks the Moon from its orbit around Earth and sends it hurtling on a collision course with life as we know it. With mere weeks before impact, and against all odds, a ragtag team launches an impossible last-ditch mission into space, leaving behind everyone they love and risking everything to land on the lunar surface and save our planet from annihilation. Wilson will play a disgraced former NASA astronaut whose last mission, which ended in tragedy, holds a clue about the impending catastrophe. Berry will play a NASA astronaut-turned-administrator whose previous space mission holds a clue about an impending catastrophe. The Conjuring and Insidious vet is set to star as a disgraced NASA astronaut whose previous mission ended in tragedy but holds a clue about the impending disaster. Plummer will play Wilson’s teenage son in the film. Directed by Emmerich, Moonfall begins production this fall in Montreal with a script written by Emmerich, his 2012 co-writer Harald Kloser, and Spenser Cohen. Emmerich is producing the independent feature film under his Centropolis Entertainment banner with Kloser producing through his company, Street Entertainment. Executive producers are Dennis Wang, James Wang, J.P. Pettinato, Marco Shepherd, Ute Emmerich, Carsten Lorenz, and Stuart Ford. RELATED: Lionsgate Lands Rights to Roland Emmerich’s Sci-Fi Action Film Moonfall Like last year’s #1 box office hit Midway, Emmerich and Centropolis are independently producing and financing Moonfall, overseeing all aspects of production, financing, delivery, and distribution and marketing in collaboration with Lionsgate, AGC International, and the film’s distribution partners around the world. Tucci will next be seen in Robert Zemeckis’ remake of The Witches alongside Anne Hathaway, while Bradley, best known for his role as Samwell Tarley in Game of Thrones, last appeared on the TV series Urban Myths. Moonfall is slated to be released theatrically by Lionsgate in North America in 2021.
