  • -Let´s talk about "Thor: Ragnarok."

  • Now, this movie already opened overseas

  • and to amazing reviews, and people love it, and it´s fun.

  • -Crazy, yeah.

  • -It´s insane how big these movies are.

  • -Very crazy, yeah.

  • -And this is the third time you´ve done it?

  • -Number 97.

  • -97th film as Thor. -Yeah.

  • -But -- -It feels like --

  • I mean, I´m doing my seventh film.

  • -Yeah. -Seventh time playing Thor.

  • -Appearance. ´Cause you show up in the other ones.

  • -In the other ones, briefly, in the background.

  • -But this one -- [ Laughter ]

  • But this one, you cut -- Thor cut his hair.

  • -Cut his hair, yeah.

  • Look, I´d done it a few times, this character,

  • and kind of got very sick of myself as that character,

  • and I called up our director and I said,

  • "Look, I´m sick of myself," and he said, "So am I."

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -Who is this guy? He´s great.

  • -Taika Waititi. He´s a New Zealand guy,

  • who´s one of the greatest directors out there.

  • And so we basically decided just to kind of

  • reinvent the character in the world

  • and do something completely different,

  • and a lot of the film is highly improvised.

  • It´s a lot more comedy. It´s a lot more crazy action.

  • It´s a lot more kind of unpredictable and --

  • Yeah, there´s a great sense of pride, I think, with all of us,

  • because we did want to do something different, and we did,

  • and people responded to it, and...

  • -Yeah, ´cause a lot of people, they probably go,

  • "Oh, well, Chris can´t --

  • I don´t know if he can do comedy,"

  • but then if you´ve ever seen "Ghostbusters,"

  • you crushed in that. That was so funny. Well done.

  • -Oh, thanks. -And then "Saturday Night Live,"

  • you were fantastic, as well.

  • -Yeah, that was kind of the -- I did "Saturday Night Live."

  • I did "Vacation," did "Ghostbusters,"

  • and kind of was having fun improvising,

  • and then thought, "God, we could do more of that in ´Thor´,"

  • and thankfully, the Marvel guys said,

  • "Yeah, go for it," and we did.

  • And I got to say, laughing for six months,

  • shooting the movie and mucking around with your mates

  • is the best way to go to work, if you can even call it that.

  • -Yeah, isn´t it great? It´s fun.

  • -It´s wonderful, yeah.

  • -Well, congrats on this. I want to show a clip.

  • Here´s Chris Hemsworth as Thor in "Thor: Ragnarok."

  • Take a look at this.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • -He is a creature. What can we say about him?

  • Well, he´s unique. There´s none like him.

  • I feel a special connection with him.

  • He´s undefeated.

  • He´s the reigning...

  • he´s the defending....

  • ladies and gentlemen, I give you...

  • -Uh-oh.

  • [ Rumbling, metal creaking ]

  • -Your incredible...

  • -[ Roaring ]

  • Hulk!

  • -Yes!

  • [ Crowd silences ]

  • -I have to get off this planet.

  • [ Laughter and applause ]

  • -"Yes!" -"Yes!"

  • -That´s your buddy. -That´s my buddy.

  • -The Hulk. -A friend from work.

  • -Chris Hemsworth, everybody.

-Let´s talk about "Thor: Ragnarok."
