The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - News - ALI­SON STEPHEN­SON

BACK on home soil, Aussie su­per­star Chris Hemsworth was a sight for Thor eyes as he emerged from the surf at a Gold Coast beach yes­ter­day.

Af­ter land­ing in Syd­ney yes­ter­day morn­ing, fresh from the Los An­ge­les world pre­miere of his new film Thor: Rag­narok, he wasted no time jet­ting to Queens­land for a swift dash to the beach.

Lo­cals were stunned as the Hol­ly­wood A-lister ca­su­ally emerged from the waves and strolled bare­foot to the out­door show­ers to wash his fa­mous six­pack.

Hemsworth, his wife Elsa Pataky and their three chil­dren live just out­side By­ron Bay, but Hemsworth at­tended the Aus­tralian de­but of the new Thor in­stal­ment at a nearby cin­ema last night. The film was shot on the Gold Coast.

The 34-year-old will join di­rec­tor Taika Waititi and Hulk ac­tor Mark Ruffalo at the Syd­ney pre­miere at EQ Moore Park to­mor­row.

Big things are ex­pected from the third Thor film. The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter said anal­y­sis so far in­di­cated that the film, which will open in Aus­tralian cine­mas on Oc­to­ber 26, will do bet­ter on its US open­ing week­end than its two pre­de­ces­sors.
