The Chris Hemsworth Obsession is Limitless
Hemsworth will host a new science series from Jane Root’s Nutopia and Darren Aronofsky’s Protozoa Pictures. The series will follow Hemsworth on his mission to live a healthier lifestyle. And it explores the answers as the actor asks questions like what if aging is not inevitable or what if it is a curable disease.
If you are like me and don’t care about answering those questions, then you can look at Chris Hemsworth working out and showing off his Thor-worthy muscles.
Each episode will tackle a different way to live better at every stage of life: regenerating damage, maximizing strength, building resilience, shocking the body, supercharging memory, and confronting mortality.
Nutopia Announces Chris Hemsworth’s Limitless
Here are is information about the project details from Nutopia:
Chris Hemsworth embarks on an epic mission to transform himself by training for six extraordinary challenges, showing how to fight aging at every stage of life – and in doing so discovers how we can all live healthier, smarter, and longer lives.
Each episode will tackle a different way we can live better for longer: regenerating damage, maximizing strength, building resilience, shocking the body, supercharging memory and confronting mortality. Hemsworth will meet leading longevity scientists who believe that the key to staying young lies in rooting out and reversing the ravages of time before they take hold, and learn secrets from superhumans who demonstrate the mind-blowing extent of human potential. In “Limitless,” Hemsworth will come face-to-face with his own mortality, testing ways to extend his healthy life in challenges that will stretch his physical and mental abilities.
The series will showcase extraordinary examples of longevity science from around the world — from the habits of centenarian martial artists to how Navy SEALs conquer stress. The series will reveal body hacks anyone can practice to keep the effects of aging at bay, and keep you fitter, smarter and stronger, regardless of age. Entertaining, immersive and life changing, ‘Limitless’ will rewrite the rulebook on living better for longer.
“I’m thrilled to once again partner with Darren and Jane, along with their powerhouse creative teams at Protozoa and Nutopia, to reveal the science behind unlocking the body’s secret superpowers in order to maximize our full potential and to live better, longer,” said National Geographic Global Television Networks president Courteney Monroe…
“Basically, I was somehow convinced to volunteer myself as a human guinea pig and endure a series of mental and physical challenges across the globe, all for the sake of science,” Hemsworth said. “We’re hoping to shed some light on new ideas and emerging science with the focus on extending a healthy life span. Production starts soon, so wish me luck.”
Aronofsky added: “‘Limitless’ has the potential to improve people’s lives in simple, impactful ways, and we love Chris’ enthusiasm to be our tour guide. I look forward to reteaming with Nat Geo, Jane and our friends from ‘One Strange Rock’ on this next adventure.”
“With ‘One Strange Rock’ we explored the incredible science of our natural world,” Root said. “‘Limitless’ is equally as grand in scope, but with a topic that’s much more personal and rife with emotion.”
Limitless is produced for National Geographic by Nutopia and Protozoa Pictures. Courteney Monroe, President of National Geographic Global Television Networks said: “We are so fortunate to have Chris Hemsworth at the centre of this series and to tap into his genuine curiosity and real-life superhero powers to push his own personal limits.”
And here is clip of Hemsworth training to be a real life Super Hero to tide you over until the show arrives on the streaming platform.
I decided to scrap this move from the fight sequence in extraction. Partly because I couldn’t pull it off but mostly because it was pretty pointless in a fight. Plus @BobbyHanton’s a show off. pic.twitter.com/GuIKkntM0k
