Thor Ragnarok – a thunderous success



Thor: Ragnarok, Marvel Studio’s third blockbuster based on the comic superhero Thor (Norse god of thunder) has opened to record box office, rolling in $425 million worldwide in its first few days. Critics have praised it as the best so far.

A stellar cast is headed by Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston, and includes Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Anthony Hopkins amongst others.

Chris Hemsworth, 11 Aug 1983, Melbourne, Australia, is a Sun Leo; with a fierce and fiery Mars in Cancer square Saturn Pluto and trine Jupiter Neptune. He spent chunks of his childhood out in the outback with buffalo and crocodiles, which would prepare him for action-man roles. He looks set for a mega-success after this in 2018 when his Solar Arc Pluto is conjunct his Jupiter, so another successful Thor under his belt will propel him even higher. Next year he stars in Marvel’s Avengers Infinity Wars with another planned for the following year.

Tom Hiddleston, 9 Feb 1981, is a Sun Venus in Aquarius, with a softer Mars in Pisces though it does sit in a high-octane square to Uranus. He has an idealistic Jupiter Saturn in Libra so will appreciate being able to intersperse his blockbusters with more serious roles. He looks on a high at the moment; though is facing a trickier 2018/19.

The director Taiki Waititi, 16 August 1975, who is credited with making this the best Thor so far, is a Sun Leo trine Jupiter in Aries – confident, lucky and flamboyant. Jupiter is opposition Uranus square Saturn so he’s adventurous, risk-taking and has executive ability. Plus a determined Mars in Gemini trine Pluto in a showbizzy opposition to Neptune. He’s well designed for the entertainment business and tough enough to handle stratospheric movies. He’s on a roll now with tr Uranus conjunct his Jupiter and even more so around 2020 when tr Pluto squares his Jupiter.

Principal Photography started on 4 July 2016 Gold Coast, Australia when there was a successful, confident and lucky Jupiter trine Pluto; with a charmingly influential Sun Venus in Cancer (for the family) opposition Pluto.

  1. Brilliant choice of director, however an interesting one, as his last film of note was a NZ movie called Hunt for the Wilderpeople. If you haven’t seen this do. It’s utterly amazing and I’ve yet to meet someone who didn’t enjoy it. Still..from a not so mainstream movie to a blockbuster is a giant leap.

  2. Hello,

    Nice analysis!
    Can you do one for the upcoming Star Wars movie and Disney in general. They seem to be unstoppable.
