As Liam Hemsworth’s star continues to rise with his portrayal of Gale in The Hunger Games and role in the upcoming The Expendable 2, he is in a box office battle with his big brother Chris whose soon to be released film The Avengers is poised to be a huge hit. The brothers, who in addition to being blessed with amazing genes (seriously, how gorgeous are they?!) are looking to fight it out in theaters all spring and summer long! Liam has already bested Chris once as The Hunger Games easily took out Cabin in the Woods, however like The Hunger Games dominated the spring, The Avengers strive to dominate the summer, it looks like it just might do it!

“Avengers,” according to some reports, could open even bigger than “Hunger Games.”
Chris can also be seen in the just-released horror flick, “Cabin in the Woods,” and the upcoming “Snow White and the Huntsman,” co-starring Kristen Stewart. Liam will be next seen fighting alongside Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger in this summer’s “The Expendables 2.”
