Chris Hemsworth and wife Elsa Pataky had their eyes only on each other while they posed lovingly for the red carpet photos on Madrid premier of the movie “In the Heart of the Sea.” Although the movie has received mixed reviews from critics, the two looked absolutely gorgeous as Hemsworth generously pleased his fans with autographs and Pataky was all smiles. Even after five years of marriage, the couple could hardly keep their hands off each other as they happily obliged shutterbugs with various poses.

According to PopSugar, Hemsworth has also promoted the Ron Howard-directed epic movie in London as well as in his country Australia.

"In the Heart of the Sea" also stars Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy, Michelle Fairley, Charlotte Riley, Brendan Gleeson and Ben Whishaw as Melville himself. He interviews the crew’s last surviving member.

The “Thor” superhero, who is known for his enviable figure, went on a crash diet of 500-600 calories a day for his role in “In the Heart of the Sea.” Movie viewers will find it hard to see the thin frame of Hemsworth in the movie.

“At one point, a day’s rations were a boiled egg, a couple of crackers and a celery stick,” Hemsworth said on his diet. He also added that the extreme diet made him bond with fellow actors Ben Whishaw and Cillian Murphy, reports

Set in 1820, the movie is about sailor “Owen Chase” played by Hemsworth who along with his crew find themselves in extremely unfavourable circumstances after their New England whaling ship “Essex” is attacked by a sperm whale. The men resort to desperate measures to survive. Cannibalism has been shown in the movie.

According to E Online, here are few comments by movie critics after they watched the movie.

“This account of the sad fate of the Essex...generates altogether less suspense, terror and awe than Jaws managed with a single Robert Shaw monologue,” said Justin Chang of Variety.

Todd McCarthy of Hollywood Reporter said that the movie is “something less than a whale of a tale” and “By comparison, In the Heart of the Sea comes off more like a long anecdote.”

Jordan Hoffman of The Guardian gave the movie three out of five stars.

“Not even Chris Hemsworth wielding a harpoon can stop Ron Howard's retelling of the Essex of Nantucket story from losing its way in the waves,” he wrote.

Total Film’s Matt Maytum gave the movie three out of five stars while Leigh Paatsch of Herald Sun gave it a two.
