Ever since seeing Chris Hemsworth's very short, but powerful performance as Captain Kirk's doomed father in J.J. Abrams 2009 "Star Trek," we can't get enough of the hunky Aussie. Good thing he's all over the big screen these days. Here are his current and upcoming films:

"The Avengers" (as Thor)

"Snow White and the Huntsman," (as the Huntsman, June 1)

"The Cabin in the Woods" (as Curt)

"Red Dawn" (coming in November) "Rush" (2013)
