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?

    Daft Punk’s Tron: Legacy Soundtrack Headed to Vinyl!

    Daft Punk’s Tron: Legacy Soundtrack Headed to Vinyl! One of the best things about Joseph Kosinski’s Tron: Legacy (aside from the stunning visuals) was that amazing electronic score by Daft Punk — a tremendous bit of rhythmic beats and synthesizers that continues to resonate to this day. As such, Mondo is teaming up with Walt Disney Records to release the score on vinyl to commemorate the film’s 10-year anniversary. RELATED: Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings Series Resumes Production in New Zealand “When we go to visit the offices at Disney Music once a year, and every time we go the team is very, very lovely and they go, ‘So what’s your dream list?’” Mo Shafeek, Creative Director, Music at Austin-based Mondo told Collider. “Tron was always on that list, particularly for my partner Spencer. He’s a huge Daft Punk fan and a huge fan of that score. We would always throw things out. Like for me it was Who Framed Roger Rabbit. And we got to do that. Once we did that it was like, ‘Tron Legacy please!’” The timing was actually just right for the project to work. “We asked at the right time. We started this back in January. We were just asking about it for years and this time it came together organically. And now we get to be in on the anniversary.” For this new edition, Shafeek went “back to the source,” which means Tron: Legacy “is a direct repressing of what was released on the original vinyl album, which did feature a full collection of bonus tracks.” The Mondo edition of Tron: Legacy comes with artwork by British illustrator Matt Taylor. RELATED: Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness Teaser Released for Netflix’s Original Horror… “The back cover has this spot-varnish where the dust has been wiped away, and the keyboard is glowing and it has the track-list, like the weird retro-future tech,” Shafeek said. “It had this whole story from the packaging perspective, where it’s a computer screen and you open it up and it’s this whole entire universe.” For more details on the soundtrack, visit the official Mondo site. Tron: Legacy Vinyl Edition Motion Picture Soundtrack will go on sale Wednesday at Noon CT/10 a.m. PT.
