Coming from Comic-Con Thor Ragnarok gets a a new trailer.
More action than last time and more Hulk who plays a major park in this film.
Were getting a feeling of Guardians of the Galaxy in this film - clearly where Marvel are going with the new wave of films.
Check out the trailer below.

Its all a little too serious in the first trailer for Thor Ragnorak, then Hulk turns up and we see the humour shine through.
Great first trailer for the new Thor movie out towards the end of the year.

Continuing a year of superhero movies doing well at the box office, the much loved character of The Wolverine in his 5th film takes over at the top in the UK from Monsters University.
Hugh Jackman one again plays Wolverine in the tale set in modern day Japan, based on one of the best comic strip Wolverine stories. The Wolverine opens to £4.6 million which is lower than the previous stand alone Wolverine film which did £6.6 million.
Monsters University falls from the top this week after 3 weeks to number 2.
This time last year The Dark Knight Rises was still the top film with another fantastic week at the UK taking £7.2 million. The Lorax was the top new film, at 2 with £1.8 million.
Five years ago The Dark Knight burst into the top of the chart with £11.2 million knocking Mamma Mia! from the top while coming of age teen drama Angus Thongs and Perfect Snogging was the new at 4.
Ten years ago The Hulk was still the top film with £1.3 million and animated tale Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas was the top new film with £800,000.
Fifteen years ago Godzilla was still the top film with £2.1 million and with a fairly static top 5 the highest new entry of the week was The Gingerbread Man at 7 with £171,120.

Another slow week at the UK box office as the British bask in the summer sun which resulted in small box office takings and Monsters University retaining the top spot.
10 days on release and a second weekend as the number one film in Great Britain Monsters University takes £2.7 million pushing it's total UK gross to £8.6 million.
Highest new film of the weekend is The Worlds End, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost on a bender that sees the world end, directed by long time collaborator Edgar Wright.
The Worlds end took £2.1 million at the box office, much lower that I would have expected for an anticipated film, but like last weekend the weather has clearly kept people outside.
In accordance with my expectations The Worlds End didn't take the top spot from Monsters University, it was way off by nearly £700,000 and also the box office taking stayed quite stagnant, although with the summer holidays now upon us next week could be different.
Last year at this time The Dark Knight Rises took the box office by storm taking £14.3 million on it's opening weekend, knocking Ice Age Continental Drift from the top and also becoming the highest new film of the week.
Five years ago Mamma Mia! was still at the top slowly raking in the money, and also keeping Wall-E from debuting at the top, the Pixar film has to settle for number 2.
Ten years ago The Hulk starring Eric Bana and directed by Ang Lee debuted at the top knocking Charlie's Angels Full Throttle down to number 3.
Fifteen years ago Godzilla took the top spot on it's debut weekend from Six Days Seven Knights.
