Posted on Author RachelComments Off on Chris Discusses “Thor: The Dark World”
Thor: The Dark World will be one of the super-sequels leading Marvel’s Phase Two charge, and Chris Hemsworth has taken the time to inform fans that there will be a very different feel to the new movie.
“The look of the film is a lot bigger than what we did even previously,” says Hemsworth. “The first one worked and people loved it, but this is with a different director and just has a totally different feel. There’s a definite Game Of Thrones vibe thanks to [director] Alan [Taylor].
“We have six weeks to go to shoot. This is the trickiest bit, because you can go, ‘Oh, yeah, we’re past the halfway mark!’ which isn’t a good idea, because you’re not finished yet. You sort of get that second wind about now or you hope to and push on through.”
Meanwhile, Hemsworth also confirms that Jane Foster’s non-appearance in The Avengers will also be addressed.
“For Thor and Jane, there are some unanswered questions now, since obviously he didn’t stop in and catch up with her in Avengers. Thor might have some explaining to do in this one… There’s some fun to be had with that. And with Loki, we get down to the major bones of our conflict with everything that’s come from Thor to Avengers to now.”

Posted on Author RachelComments Off on “Thor: The Dark World” Clip – Thor and Jane Reunite
At the end of Kenneth Branagh’s Thor, the titular hero (Chris Hemsworth) was forced to destroy the powerful Rainbow Bridge in order to stop his brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) from killing many innocent people. This action had severe personal consequences, of course, as this meant that Thor was cut off from his love, the beautiful, brilliant Jane Foster (Natalie Portman). During the events of The Avengers, when Thor actually managed to travel back to Earth to once again stop his sibling, he was still cut off from Jane, as she was moved away by S.H.I.E.L.D. for her own protection. It’s been a long, long time since Thor and Jane have been able to see each other, and as you can see in the latest clip from Thor: The Dark World the wait is not something that Jane was too happy about.

Posted on Author RachelComments Off on Empire’s 100 Sexiest Movie Stars 2013
Empire Online has released their list of the 100 Sexiest Movie Stars 2013 and to our delight – but not to our surprise – Chris made the list! Chris placed 6th on the list. Take a look below at what earned him a top 10 spot!
#6 – Chris Hemsworth
There’s a moment in the S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot where someone points out that Thor is not, technically, a god. Cobie Smulders’ Maria Hill retorts, “You haven’t been near his arms.” It’s hard to argue with the sex appeal of a man with biceps like that. And indeed all the other muscles. And the voice. And the smile. That he’s also a devoted family man and unfailingly nice guy is just a bonus.
While he’s handy with a big chopper in Snow White & The Huntsman, it’s still as Thor that he shines most and swings the hammer hardest.
STROKE OF CHARM
Basically everything on this page.
Posted on Author RachelComments Off on First “Thor: The Dark World” Clip Released
The first preview clip from Thor: The Dark World has been released. You can watch the short teaser, which sees Thor (Chris Hemsworth) confronting his brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston).
According to Marvel’s official synopsis for the film, “a vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness” and it falls on Hemsworth’s hammer-wielding hero to stop him. Thor: The Dark World opens in UK cinemas on October 30 before getting a US release on November 8. Take a look at the clip below:
Two-time Academy Award winner Ron Howard, teams once again with fellow two-time Academy Award nominee, writer Peter Morgan, on Rush, a spectacular big-screen re-creation of the merciless 1970s rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda.
The epic action-drama stars Chris Hemsworth (The Avengers) as the charismatic Englishman James Hunt and Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds) as the disciplined Austrian perfectionist Niki Lauda, whose clashes on the Grand Prix racetrack epitomized the contrast between these two extraordinary characters, a distinction reflected in their private lives.
Set against the sexy and glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing, Rush portrays the exhilarating true story of two of the greatest rivals the world has ever witnessed–handsome English playboy Hunt and his methodical, brilliant opponent, Lauda. Taking us into their personal lives on and off the track, Rush follows the two drivers as they push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance, where there is no shortcut to victory and no margin for error. If you make one mistake, you die.
Also starring Olivia Wilde and Alexandra Maria Lara, Rush is produced by Andrew Eaton, Howard, Academy Award winner Brian Grazer, Eric Fellner, Morgan and Brian Oliver and executive produced by Cross Creek Pictures, Exclusive Media, Todd Hallowell and Tim Bevan. Universal Pictures will distribute the film in North America.
The Q&A was moderated by Jenelle Riley from Variety. Take a look below:
