Chris Hemsworth: 'Thor: The Dark World' Tokyo Premiere

Chris Hemsworth proudly holds up the famous Mjolnir as he suits up to attend the Thor: The Dark World premiere held at Cinema Mediage on Sunday (January 26) in Tokyo, Japan.

The 30-year-old actor held up the same Thor hammer as he touched down into the country at Narita International Airport the day before.

“I auditioned for Thor, and I didn’t get called back,” Chris recently told W Magazine. “I was intimidated by the director, Kenneth Branagh – to me, he is Shakespeare. My brother, Liam, was luckier. He was one of the final five guys up for the part, but none of them were quite right. My manager said, ‘If you liked Liam, maybe you’ll also like his older brother.’ This time, I was pissed off. I didn’t care about Shakespeare anymore; swagger got me the part.”
