We’re inching closer and closer to the release of Thor: Ragnarok, where we’ll be treated to hours of Chris Hemsworth, Cate Blanchett, and the eternally delightful Jeff Goldblum—who even in smaller doses, like this adorable 10-second synopsis of his upcoming film, is still the grandest of masters.

While chatting with GamesRadar, Goldblum was asked to describe the plot of Thor: Ragnarok in 10 seconds. In true Goldblum style, he took his sweet time—about 17 seconds instead of the requested 10—but managed to not only give a concise synopsis of the film, but also add a nice plug for himself.

“Thor finds out much about his family and tries to save his planet and the universe, while overcoming the machinations of a grand funny fun figure such as myself,” Goldblum said.


During other parts of the interview, he was asked whether he prefers dinosaurs or dragons (dinosaurs), flight or invisibility (flight), and Loki or Thor. This one was my personal favorite, because he immediately started comparing them to food, calling Loki a “Tootsie Pop” and saying Thor is “quite gamey,” before adding that he couldn’t choose between them. Then, for good measure, he treated the audience to not one, but two renditions of his special Jurassic Park theme song that he apparently keeps pitching the producers of Jurassic World:

In Jurassic Park

Scary in the dark

I’m so scared that I’ll be eaten

Thor: Ragnarok comes out November 2. You can check out the interview below—his movie synopsis comes in around 1:25.
