Thor:Ragnarok, one of 2017’s most successful films with a $845 million worldwide box office take, hits Blu-ray, Digital, DVD and On-Demand March 6. For viewers looking for a peak viewing experience, The Ultimate Cinematic Universe Edition is featured in 4K Ultra HD with high dynamic range (HDR) and Dolby Atmos audio.
One of Thor: Ragnarok’s many strengths was its ability to blend comedy within the darkest of storylines (the possible destruction of Asgard by Thor’s nemesis Hela, played by Cate Blanchett). Credit goes to Hunt for the Wilderpeople filmmaker Taika Waititi for turning the film into the franchise’s finest hour (thoughThor: The Dark World is woefully underrated).
