What could be better than one Hollywood Hunk? Two in the same family! Chris and Liam Hemsworth, otherwise known as Thor and Gale, are stars of the two biggest Box-Office hits, ‘The Avengers‘ and ‘The Hunger Games‘. The films have taken the top two Box-Office openings of the year!
The box-office odds are ever in the favor of Chris and Liam Hemsworth. With Marvel’s “The Avengers” claiming a record-breaking $200 million in its first three days and “The Hunger Games” bowing at just over $150 million, the Australian brothers have assembled the top two opening weekends of 2012. Talk about the thunder from Down Under!
Six weeks after its debut, “The Hunger Games” continues to perform well, raking in a total gross of more than $380 million. And though it will undoubtedly fall in its second weekend, the box-office experts who spoke to MTV News were bullish about the continued heroics of “The Avengers.”
And there will be plenty more Hemsworth to come in 2012. Next month, Chris will continue his weapon-wielding ways in “Snow White and the Huntsman,” co-starring Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart. In November, he’ll star alongside his brother’s “Hunger Games” cohort Josh Hutcherson in the action flick “Red Dawn.” Liam also has a pair of films readied for this year: “AWOL,” a war-time drama co-starring Teresa Palmer, and “The Expendables 2,” in which he’ll go toe-to-toe with action vets Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone and Chuck Norris (just to name a few).
I’m looking forward to seeing a lot more of the Hemsworth Brothers! Click to read the full article here!
