The God of Thunder is back with a new look in Thor: Ragnarok. In the official teaser trailer released by Marvel (view below), Hela, the goddess of death and ruler of Hel and Niflheim, makes her way to Asgard and annihilates it. This includes Thor’s hammer Mjölnir, which Hela catches after being thrown by Thor (a truly WTF moment) and breaks it into pieces with one hand. The destruction of Asgard seemingly launches Thor into outer space where he crash lands onto a very colorful planet full of aliens. He’s taken prisoner and his beautiful golden hair is cut off. We get to meet Valkyrie (played by Tessa Thompson) and Grandmaster (played by Jeff Goldblum) who hosts gladiator matches in a huge colosseum. The main event just happens to be Thor vs. Hulk, where Thor says an awfully hilarious, “We know each other! He’s a friend from work!”

Person’s alone somewhere, hears a noise and decides to go investigate it – unarmed. Person tries to run get away from killer in a house, and chooses to go up the stairs to high. As annoying and predictable these scenarios might be, The Cabin in the Woods film takes these all into consideration and does something different with them.
