There’s one Tom Hiddleston new movie for 2017 that we can’t wait to see, and that’s Thor: Ragnarok! There are a number of Marvel movies releasing in 2017 and Ragnarok is one that fans simply have to see.
There’s nothing but new music and new movies for 2017, and we’re doing everything we can to give you the heads up you need to enjoy the most anticipated ones. So, mark your calendars, because Tom Hiddleston’s upcoming movies for this year are going to be on your must-see list! From the mystical world of Asgard to the jungle of Skull Island, fans are going to lose themselves in Tom Hiddleston’s new movies for 2017.
After all the Taylor Swift drama at the end of their three-month relationship, fans can finally focus on the most anticipated Tom Hiddleston upcoming movie for 2017, and that is most certainly Thor: Ragnarok! If you want to learn more about the British actor’s other upcoming projects, then keep reading, because we have just what you need!
The British A-lister recently received a Golden Globe award for his performance in the 2016 mini TV series, The Night Manager, so it’s safe to say that despite his recent heart break, things are going well for the actor, professionally. This year is a busy one for Marvel, who is also unveiling Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming, this year.
Thor will bring Marvel’s reign of 2017 to a close and possibly set up the upcoming 2018 film, Black Panther. When you see Ragnarok, remember to stay for all the post-credit scenes to look out for any extra clips that belong to Black Panther! (You would be surprised how many people still haven’t learned to stay seated until the very end of a Marvel movie!) In Raganrok, Thor must battle against his friend and fellow Avenger, the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) in a gladiator match to save his people from Hela’s wrath.
In Thor: The Dark World, Loki replaced his adoptive father and king, Odin and took his place on the throne of Asgard by shapeshifting and taking his identity. But where is the real Odin? Well, we find out that he’s been missing since he was replaced and Loki will also be on a mission to find him! But is this a search and rescue mission or a kill mission? Loki has always wanted the throne and was devastated when he found out he wasn’t a blood relative of Thor’s royal family or even Asgardian, at all. We can’t wait to see what the God of Mischief is up to this time around and what the outcome will be after another Thor vs. Hulk death match! Thor: Ragnarok will be released in theaters on November 3, 2017.
Kong: Skull Island
In Kong: Skull Island, fans will get a chance to see Hiddleston share the big screen with Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, and John C. Reilly. In this film about the legendary gorilla, Hiddleston plays Captain James Conrad, a tracker and former member of the British Special Air Services (SAS). Jackson’s character is a vet, Reilly’s is a World War II pilot, and Larson’s is a war photographer who recently returned from Vietnam.
Not much is known about this version of the film, other than the fact that it’s set in the ’70s instead of the ‘30s. But, Hiddleston wasn’t shy about revealing some details about his character.
“[Conrad’s] sort of a ’70s hero,” he told movie news site, JoBlo. “He’s one of those lone cats. He’s got edge. A lot of wit. That’s partly why I wanted the character to be British. So that chemistry with Weaver (Larson) would have that old Hollywood banter.”
This film will also differ from the usual Anne Darrow-damsel-in-distress stories that audiences have been getting, ever since the first King Kong movie was released.
“There’s a great chemistry,” he said. “There’s a great sort of back and forth about who gets to make decisions. She mocks him in the beginning for being opaque and mysterious.”
Hiddleston’s character is also very understanding about the world he lives in and the necessity for predators. It sounds like that father-son-scene in the Lion King, where Mufasa talks about the circle of life. We can’t wait to see this film and witness Hiddleston’s brand of charm. The film will be released on March 10, 2017.
Hiddleston joins Oscar winning actor, Eddie Redmayne in the animated feature, Early Man, a prehistoric comedy. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Thor: Ragnarok star is set to play the voice of the “ridiculously pompous” Lord Nooth, the governor of the Bronze Age town. He is a greedy, money-loving tyrant and an enemy of the Stone Age hero, Dug (played by Eddie Redmayne).
The film is set in a time when woolly mammoths and prehistoric animals ruled the earth, telling the story of Dug, who unites his tribe against the mighty bronze Age battle against Lord Nooth.
Hiddleston has been a longtime fan of the film’s English director, Nick Park and couldn’t wait to work on this project with him.
“I have been a fan of Nick Park and Aardman for as long as I can remember, and am incredibly honored to be working with Nick and the team on this adventure,” said Hiddleston. “I’m thrilled to be able to breathe some semblance of life into this hysterical villain and to work with Eddie for the first time. Early Man made me laugh out loud when I read it. Lord Nooth is larger than life in every respect. I can’t wait for audiences to meet him.”
There is no release date for this film at the moment but we can’t wait to see it already!
