"We're werewolves, not swear-wolves."
Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok) and Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords) have released the trailer for their upcoming series Wellington Paranormal, a spin-off of their cult hit film What We Do in the Shadows. Like WWDITS, the series will be a mockumentary-style look at the mundane lives of the supernatural monsters that reside in New Zealand ad the police tasked with handling them.Read More

We love us some Taika Waititi around here, and while we are all about Thor:Ragnarok, we also know that he's been delivering his unique brand of energy, humor, and irreverent storytelling to all sorts of films as a director, and as an actor. However, Waititi also knows huge comedic talent when he sees it, which is likely why he's a producer on an awesome-looking new sort-of-rom-com, The Breaker Upperers. Check out the trailer after the jump!Read More
You can finally watch Thor: Ragnarok in the comfort of your own home, and the digital edition comes chockful of bloopers, shorts, and deleted scenes—including one with ... Yondu?Read More
You may remember Marvel's Team Thor mockumentary, in which Thor navigated life as a normal dude on Earth. Thor was dealing with feelings of insecurity prompted by his Avengers friends not including him in their Civil War fun. Darryl is the "normal guy" who had to deal with a somewhat insufferable god as a roommate. Thor is now gone, and Darryl has moved from Australia to Los Angeles ... which has necessitated finding someone new with whom he can share an apartment. Enter The Grandmaster.Read More
Following up from last week's deleted scene, which featured Jeff Goldblum getting intimate with some tentacles, Thor: Ragnarok is giving us more delightful absurdity from the Grandmaster.Read More

Nothing but respect for MY 'Sexiest Man Alive'
In addition to directing Thor: Ragnarok, one of the greatest superhero movies of all time, Taika Waititi also appeared onscreen in the film as Korg, the amiable revolutionary made of rocks.Read More
Also, give us our Valkyrie movie right now. Thank you.
Thor: Ragnarok concept designs from Marvel artists reveal some of the visions that didn't make their way into Taika Waititi's hit. They're all fascinating, and beautifully rendered, but I only have eyes for Valkyrie. The character was as wonderful—and important—as we hoped.Read More
Stan, please. I'm weak.
Stan Lee is both a savior and a supervillain to me today after he seemingly confirmed that we'll get a Black Widow standalone movie—eventually.Read More
I, like much of America, saw Thor: Ragnarok this weekend and had a great time. It's literally the only time I've cared this much about Thor as a character. Also, I'm a much bigger fan of the closely-cropped hair than I ever was of Thor's longer, shaggier do. As it turns out, we have Kevin Smith and his nerdy ranting to thank for the change!Read More
I had a great time at a press screening of Thor: Ragnarok. As our Marykate Jasper outlined in her review, the movie is fun, funny, unconventional, and sometimes messy—not perfect, but I'm already excited to see it again opening night. However ...Read More
Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi's 2014 vampire mockumentary What We Do In the Shadows is coming back to life.Read More
While there are currently no plans for a fourth Thor film, Waititi wouldn't be totally opposed to directing another one.Read More
4 out of 5 stars.
From its baldly preposterous plot to director Taika Waititi's signature humor, Thor: Ragnarok has way more character than any corporate, third-in-a-series superhero movie has the right to. It's as funny as it is messy.Read More
