Chris Hemsworth bulked up A LOT for the new Thor movie, saying he packed on muscle due to boredom during COVID lockdowns -- where all he did was eat and train. "It was train, eat, train, eat. Nothing else to do. Then I turned up for the film bigger than I've ever been,” he told USA Today. But he says his wife wasn’t the biggest fan of his big muscles. "My wife was like, 'Bleh, it’s too much,'" Hemsworth said. "There are a lot of my male friends who are like, 'Yeah!' but a lot of female friends and family are like, 'Yuck.'" So ... Where do you stand on muscles? The bigger the better? Better lean and mean? Skinny rocks? Dad bods rule?
Apparently it wasn't bad for tickets sales though- Thor brought another week of Love and Thunder to the box office. The Marvel flick earned $46 million to remain the number-one movie for a second straight weekend. Still, that was a 68% drop from the week before and was one of the biggest falls the franchise has seen. In total, the movie has earned $233 million domestically and $498 million worldwide. Minions: The Rise of Gru stayed in second with $26 million. The mystery Where the Crawdads Sing opened in third with a better-than-expected $17 million. Top Gun: Maverick was fourth with $12 million, raising its total to $618 million and putting it only a couple of million dollars away from breaking into the Top 10 highest-grossing movies of all time. And Elvis was fifth with $7.6 million.
