Thor: Ragnarok Trailer – Now This Looks Like Pulp!

Posted by Rampant Coyote on April 10, 2017

I have no idea if Thor: Ragnarok will be any good. Using the actual Led Zeppelin original Immigrant Song (which I thought was pretty much impossible to license) definitely amps the trailer up a couple of notches in my estimation. The joke at the end is awesome.

When I think of early pulp science fiction, back in the era before it was really labeled as such, the visuals in this trailer are what I think of. Between this and the John Carter trailer — which really was based on honest-to-goodness early pulp SF and used a cover version of another Led Zeppelin song, go figure — I think I just need to watch these to get in the mood.


And the John Carter Trailer. Just ‘cuz.

    “Immigrant Song” was lincesed first, by Jack Black for his “school of Rock” film. Up to then it was not possible to license a Led Zeppelin song.
