Apparently, Liam Hemsworth can throw a serious punch.

Such was the case this week in Queens, New York, where the 22-year-old Hunger Games hottie filmed a brutal fight scene for his new movie, Empire State.

As filming got underway, Hemsworth -- who was dressed in a beige t-shirt and burgundy pants -- was also spotted taking a call on his cell phone. No word on whether or not he was talking to his fiancee, Miley Cyrus.

In the film, which hits theaters June 10, 2013, Hemsworth plays a 1980s New York cop who investigates the heist of an armored car company. Dwayne Johnson and Emma Roberts co-star.

Also next year, Hemsworth will reprise his role as Gale Hawthorne in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which just this week cast Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee.

Catching Fire blasts into theaters on Nov. 22, 2013.

Hemsworth, who hails from Australia, confirmed his engagement to Cyrus, 19, in June.
