Chris Hemsworth's wife Elsa Pataky was a part of cinematic history when her new movie 'Fast Five' gave Universal its highest grossing opening weekend ever for a single film, but this weekend 'Fast Five' will have to stand up against Hemsworth's 'Thor.'
At the 'Thor' Hollywood premiere on Monday night, Hemsworth told us that he made the time to congratulate his wife after the massive opening of 'Fast Five,' which pulled in over $86 million.
Perhaps some of that good fortune will rub off on Hemsworth for his big opening.
"I had a fantastic director and a great cast to support me through [the making of the film]," said Hemsworth. "It was a big collaborative effort and I had a lot of fun doing it."
'Thor' finds the arrogant Norse warrior (Hemsworth) forced to live among humans as punishment after reigniting an ancient war in his world. His true mettle is put to the test when a villainous foe sends dark forces from the realm of Asgard to invade Earth.
"I'm still reeling," said Kat Dennings, who admitted to being a "huge fan of comics" when she was younger. "I've only seen it once and I'm really excited to see it again because I cried."
'Thor' is set to clobber theaters May 6. Click the video to find out what Sir Anthony Hopkins said "makes all the difference" in Hemsworth's acting career.
