Hemsworth's joy on shooting in Australia
Thor: Ragnarok will release on November 3 in India
Chris Hemsworth says he had requested the makers of Thor: Ragnarok to shoot the film in Australia, and considers himself lucky that they agreed. "The Marvel guys said they would look into it, but couldn't promise anything. I thought it would be fantastic to be home again for more than two weeks. And it worked out," he says.
"There's such a familiarity with the crew in Australia. Also, I get to sleep in my own bed. I think there's such wonderful talent here, in the cast and crew across the board, so it was fantastic," says Hemsworth, adding that the weather was brilliant too. "I don't think it rained at all. It's just been one of the best shoots I've been part of."
Hemsworth is back as Thor in the third installment of the film. On shooting in Brisbane, he adds, “It was nuts. I'd never seen that many people excited for a film crew. There were more people there than any premiere I've been to, and more excitement and buzz too." The people of Brisbane were thrilled and packed in the streets to catch a look, he adds. "The city sort of stopped for those couple of days. It was such a positive buzz, and we were all trying to get out there and sign autographs in between takes as much as we could. That was pretty special."
Marvel Studios' Thor: Ragnarok is directed by Taika Waititi and also stars Idris Elba, Tom Hiddelston, Anthony Hopkins, and Jeff Goldblum among others. The movie will release in India on November 3..
