And so, as we roll into 2012, and a fresh calendar of veritable quality mixed liberally with garbage and chewing gum for the eyes, we’ll see new gems unearthed, giants fall and movie stars made. Using the power of prediction, and Wall Street style logical growth trajectory, here are six actors likely to be Kings and Queens of Cinema by this time next year. Watch this space.
In 2012 he will be the big star in the perhaps ill-advised remake of Red Dawn, reprise his role as Thor in the hotly anticipated The Avengers, and take up a somber, serious role as Formula 1 driver James Hunt in Ron Howard’s Rush, a biopic of the ill-fated Niki Lauda.
Already commanding one segment of the Marvel franchise, it’s arguable that Hemsworth has a long fall or possibly serious typecasting ahead of him. But with serious dramatic roles at the behest of respected Directors coming in, and a status as a thinking man’s action hero, it will take some doing to stop the Melbourne born lad being the poster boy for numerous blockbusters for some time.
