Epic 1987-style Thor trailer gets laughs from director Taika Waititi


What if Thor: Ragnorak was made in the 80s?

Pop culture news website Nerdist has come to save the day with a 1987 version of a Thor: Ragnorak trailer - and it's outstanding.

Even the Marvel film's Kiwi director Taika Waititi has lost his cool over it.

Look at those incredible visual effects in the retro DIY Thor trailer.

Film-maker Taika Waititi gave his nod of approval for the 1987-styled trailer of Thor: Ragnorak.

The trailer plays as if it were on a VHS.

Using those memorable black spot glitches on the tape, the warped sound effects and terribly awful visual effects, Nerdist captured the 80s Thor version perfectly.

"First he brought the Thunder in Thor," the dramatic voiceover declares.

"Then it was hammertime in Thor 2: The Dark World.

"Now he's back to Ragnarok'n roll."

On top of those outstanding cliche lines, even the 80s version of The Hulk makes an appearance.

Thor: Ragnarok​ comes to New Zealand cinemas on October 26.
