Joseph Fiennes To Prophesise For Carnival Films In Nostradamus

14 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Once upon a time, every new drama that landed on our TV screens was either a hospital or crime-based show. Then came the apocalypse – zombie, or otherwise. These things move in waves, and since Downton Abbey began enjoying runaway success, producers have been commissioning more and more period dramas. We will soon be watching David Duchovny in the Manson-tracking drama Aquarius, and Clive Owen in Steven Soderbergh’s The Knick. The trend looks set to continue, too, with news that Joseph Fiennes will take the role of Nostradamus in a forthcoming episodic production.

The project – which comes from a partnership between Downton Abbey producers Carnival Films and True Detective producers Anonymous Content – will also feature Fiennes as producer. Micahel Boccacino is writing the hour long drama series, which will focus on the infamous visionary as he works toward avenging the murder of his family.

Alan Moore wants fans to boycott Brett Ratner’s Hercules

20 July 2014 6:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Legendary graphic novel writer Alan Moore (Watchmen, V For Vendetta) has called for fans to boycott the forthcoming Hercules movie directed by Brett Ratner (X:Men The Last Stand, Rush Hour), produced by Paramount/MGM and starring Dwayne Johnson. The latest adaptation of the Greek demigod is based on Radical Comics Hercules: The Thracian Wars written by longtime friend Scott Moore (no relation to Alan).

Alan Moore’s issue has nothing to do with the quality of the final piece or even how faithful it’s been to the original source material – like his similar qualms with his own graphic novel adaptations – it is simply to do with how his friend’s name – following his untimely death in March of this year – has been used to help promote the movie. Speaking to Bleeding Cool, Alan Moore explains that following unsuccessful negotiations regarding the rights of the comic books Scott Moore received »

Comic Book Legend Alan Moore Asks Fans to Boycott Dwayne Johnson's 'Hercules'

19 July 2014 9:32 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Legendary comic book writer and Watchmen creator Alan Moore is no friend of Hollywood. He has notoriously spoken out against his own creations coming to the big screen, and now he is upset over how Paramount and MGM is using his deceased friend Steve Moore to sell their upcoming big budget summer adventure Hercules, which is based on the man's comic Hercules: The Thracian Wars . He's even going as far as to ask fans to boycott the movie, which is directed by Brett Ratner and stars Dwayne Johnson in the title role.

Steve Moore remains a tremendously influential writer and presence in today's comic book market, and while he created Hercules: The Thracian Wars, he received no payment from the film production. Because of that, he asked that his name be removed from the credits. Following his death, his name began appearing in advertisements used to sell the movie, and »

The Rock Reveals A Bts Image And Story From An Iconic Moment In Hercules

19 July 2014 7:25 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Regardless of how good or bad Hercules ends up being, it will be worth watching simply to see just how much Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has put into the role. What leads us to that assumption? Well, check out the video and brief story below to see exactly what we mean! Brett Ratner lost the goodwill of many moviegoers thanks to X-Men: The Last Stand, but with Hollywood's highest grossing actor in the title role, Hercules could be something of a redemption story for the filmmaker. It certainly looks like a lot of fun and the action appears to be top notch. Also starring Aksel Hennie, Rufus Sewell, Ian McShane, Joseph Fiennes, John Hurt, Rebecca Ferguson and Tobias Santelmann, Hercules is set to hit theaters July 25th, 2014. Are you guys excited for the movie?  I asked the prop department to lock me in with real steel chains that I couldn't break, »

New Featurette, TV Spot & Images Of Dwayne Johnson In Brett Ratner's 'Hercules'

18 July 2014 10:06 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

After a decade-long quest, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is finally a fully-flung movie star: he's helped elevate sequels in the "Fast & Furious," "Journey" and "G.I. Joe" franchises to be significantly more successful than their predecessors. But so far, the actor's standalone actioners haven't had the same level of success, with movies like "Faster" and "Snitch" disappointing, and "Empire State" failing to even get a theatrical release. But studios are betting on him more than ever: next year, he'll headline earthquake disaster tentpole "San Andreas," but first up, he's got a prime summer slot for solo swords-and-sandals picture "Hercules." Directed by Brett Ratner (natch), the film sees Johnson embrace his destiny and play the legendary Greek hero of the title. Co-starring Rufus Sewell, Ian McShane, John Hurt, Joseph Fiennes, Rebecca Ferguson, Ingrid Bolso Berdal, Joe Anderson, Peter Mullan and »

Hercules Images: Dwayne Johnson Battles a Lion, a Giant Boar, and Puny Humans

17 July 2014 4:46 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Paramount Pictures has released a collection of high-resolution Hercules images from director Brett Ratner’s upcoming sword-and-sandals actioner.  The film is a revisionist take on the classic myth and takes place after Hercules’ famous twelve labors, as we find him “traveling with a group of mercenaries and cashing in on his famous name until he’s hired to train an army for an epic battle.”  Dwayne Johnson takes on the lead role this time around, and as gleaned by these new images, he looks to have his hands full with plenty of foes—both human and non-human.  Also clear from these new images: the man can wear the hell out of a lion hat. Hit the jump to check out the new Hercules images.  The film also stars John HurtIan McShaneJoseph FiennesPeter MullanRufus SewellRobert Maillet, and Irina Shayk.  Hercules opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on July 25th. »
