Few actors guarantee success in tequila and streaming as much as legendary Australian actor Chris Hemsworth, who celebrates his 40th birthday today. Although his genetic predisposition to Alzheimer’s has earned him a partial retirement, Hemsworth is in full form. Although he is widely recognized for his role as Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, what other roles has he played outside of this franchise?
1. ‘The Cabin in the Woods’
His first foray into the film industry was with the film “La Cabin en el Grove”, an unconventional proposition. This horror film is one of the most original films of the last two decades, surprising the audience who were expecting a typical film of this genre. Under the direction of screenwriter and filmmaker Drew Goddard, the slasher blends elements of fantasy, science fiction and comedy. “The Cabin in the Woods” is available on Movistar+ and Filmin.
2. ‘In the middle of the sea’
Even though it seems counterintuitive, it was author Herman Melville who was inspired by the true story told by Nathaniel Philbrick to write “Moby Dick”. “En el Corazón del Mar” is a survival drama that portrays a sailor’s obsession with hunting the giant ball that capsized his boat in the deep sea. In addition to Hemsworth, the cast of the film includes Cillian Murphy, Tom Holland, and Ben Whishaw. The film is available in the Netflix and HBO Max catalogues.
3. ‘Balos Tiempos en el Royale’
Following their successful collaboration on “La Cabin en el Grove”, Hemsworth and Goddard teamed up again on “Malos Tiempos en el Royale”. This comedic thriller tells the story of seven strangers who gather at a hotel and experience a fateful night where everyone will have a chance at salvation.
4. ‘Blackhat: Amenazza en la Red’
In addition to working on major productions, Hemsworth has collaborated with renowned directors such as Michael Mann. Although this cybernetic thriller was received indifferently by critics at the time, it has become a cult film over time.
5. ‘Star Trek’
Although he has a brief involvement, Hemsworth plays a pivotal role in this successful reboot signed by JJ Abrams. It is rumored that his character may be reprized in future deliveries. With elements of science fiction and a great opening, this film can captivate both lovers of this genre and those who are not.
In short, Chris Hemsworth has demonstrated his interpretive versatility in addition to his iconic role as Thor. Evidence of this is films such as “The Cabin in the Woods”, “In the Heart of the Sea”, “Bad Time at the Royal”, “Blackhat: Amanda in the Raid” and his participation in the “Star Trek” reboot. His talent and ability to mesmerize the audience in a variety of genres.
