Ahead of today's LA premiere of the latest Marvel blockbuster Thor: Ragnarok, Kiwi director Taika Waititi gave a frank insight into a key part of his role on set.

"This movie experience was like having a boat, and all the people operating the boat were like six-years-old," Waititi said.

"You're trying to explain to them how to operate the different things on the boat, and trying to keep them from crying, and trying to keep them happy all the time.

"That's what I think directing's like."

Thor: Ragnarok has a star laden cast including Chris Hemsworth, Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum and Anthony Hopkins.

Waititi himself is fast rising through the Hollywood ranks after writing the first screenplay draft for the successful Disney film Moana, and directing beloved Kiwi flicks Hunt for the Wilderpeople, and Boy.
