According to various online resources, the release date for A Perfect Getaway has been moved up to August 7th.
The gallery has been updated with the following new screencaps. A big thank you to Ida and Trish again for all their help. 🙂
I also set up a Twitter account for the site if you’d like to follow the site’s updates. We are at twitter.com/chemsworthnet and please feel free and help spread the word.
I’ve updated the gallery with tons of new photos over the past week or so, but haven’t had a chance to do a proper update until now. Below is a list and links of all of the new additions.
A huge “thank you” goes out to Trish for helping with the screencaps and to Ida for sending me tons of photos and some great links as well. They’re total dolls and I can’t thank either of them enough for all of their help. Look for many more of their contributions to be added very soon. 🙂
If anyone else has any photos, scans, videos, fan art, etc. that you’d like to contribute to the site, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll add it to the site with proper credit.

The Aussie made a warp-speed impression with his fleeting role in ” Star Trek,” but now come the big roles with “Red Dawn” and “Thor.”
In the pages of Marvel Comics there are plenty of magical weapons but the most famous is an ancient stone hammer with this inscription: “Whosoever holds this hammer, should he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.”
Considering the fact (and the fiction) that Thor is the Norse god of thunder, that’s a lot of pressure on anyone who dares to reach for the mystical mallet. No one knows that better than Australian actor Chris Hemsworth, the just-announced title star of the upcoming “Thor,” which will be the fourth movie from upstart Marvel Studios. Hemsworth will be just the third leading man for Marvel, following Robert Downey Jr. ( “Iron Man” and its sequel next summer) and Edward Norton ( “The Incredible Hulk”).

If Star Trek writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman were given the opportunity of another shot with Chris Hemsworth who played Kirk’s father in the new Star Trek incarnation, Kurtzman said, “As long as he plays the part, there could be an entire ‘Star Trek’ movie devoted to the heroic adventures of George Kirk.”
So what makes this young Australian actor so lovable and in demand? He came out of nowhere and has managed to land some major roles including Kirk’s father, the lead in THOR, Jed (previously played by Patrick Swayze) in the Red Dawn remake and more.
Marvel President Kevin Feige thinks he knows the answer, “As new actors make their way into feature films, it is a rare thing to find someone who is not only immensely watchable and engaging, but can also represent a timeless and key character from the Marvel universe in such a compelling way. We have been watching Chris hone his craft over the last several months and due to his persistence and talent he rose above everyone else embodying the actor we were looking for.”
We saw him briefly in the first 10 minutes of Star Trek in May, we’ll have to wait quite a while for THOR, not scheduled to open until 2011.
He’s one to keep an eye on, LA Times included him in their Calendar section as one of the top 10 rising names in Hollywood.
Screencaps of Chris’ performance in episode 3677 of Home and Away have been added to the gallery. More screencaps will be added soon, but please bear with the random order they will be added because Iâ€™ve only found certain episodes so far and will be capping as I go. Iâ€™ll also be adding stills and promos soon as well.
Welcome to the Chris Hemsworth Network, your newest resource dedicated to Chris Hemsworth, who you will recognize from Home and Away, Star Trek, the upcoming films Thor, Red Dawn and The Cabin in the Woods.
As you can see, the site is still a work in progress, but will be completed soon. You will find that this site differs from most fansites in that it will kept a bit smaller in order to focus on Chris’ growing career and the latest news and photos. I hope you will enjoy the site and check in frequently for all the latest on Chris and his career.
If you happen to have any photos, videos, etc. that you’d like to donate, please feel free to contact me. I’ve had a terribly hard time tracking down photoshoots and Home and Away things in particular, so anything anyone might be able to help with would be greatly appreciated.
Below is an interview (video by dingogrrl) of Chris’ recent interview on Sunrise on April 30, 2009 where he speaks about his role in Star Trek.
