Watch a Funny New 'Thor: Ragnarok' Clip, Plus Jeff Goldblum Riffs on the Meaning of the Title

Oct 11, 2017

Excitement for Thor: Ragnarok is heating up with less than a month to go before its release. Critics are raving about the upcoming Marvel movie, third of the sub-series focused on Thor, and promotion for the sequel is ramping up. Today we've got a couple fun things to share, as if you need more reason to look forward to this thing. 


Thor laments the loss of his love, Mjolnir

First up is a new clip from Thor: Ragnarok showcased on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week, during an apperance by Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth. The scene features Thor and a rock creature named Korg, played via performance capture by director Taika Waititi.

The characters discuss Thor's lost weapon, the hammer Mjolnir, and it's done sort of self-parodically. Hemsworth also talks about the inception of this ad-libbed scene and explains a certain photo of himself, Waititi and Sir Anthony Hopkins from the set of the movie. 


Jeff Goldblum reads fan tweets

Marvel has been promoting Thor: Ragnarok on Twitter with the hashtag "#WhatsRagnarok," to which many fans have replied. As further promotion, they got Jeff Goldblum, who plays the Grandmaster in the movie, to read some of these answers while wearing a very colorful, Thor-Ragnarok-ian sweater.

Of course, he's Jeff Goldblum, so there's always more verbiage than just a simple reading. In one video he sings a tune from the Big Chill soundtrack, in another he does his impersonation of the Count from Sesame Street and in another he does his impression of an elephant.
