Sequel to Thor: Ragnarok and the fourth movie in the Thor saga. The film finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – a search for self-discovery. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.
Cinesite delivered the key sequence that takes place in the Shadow Realm, where Gorr has imprisoned Thor, Mighty Thor (Jane Foster) and Valkyrie. On this film, I undertook the role of the 3D Production Coordinator. You can explore Cinesite’s work on Thor: Love and Thunder in more depth via the Cinesite Website as well as on AWN.
