20 October 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While fans still have a few more weeks before Hercules debuts on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD, starting November 4, this action-adventure will be available on Digital HD October 21. We have an exclusive preview that takes fans behind-the-scenes with director Brett Ratner and star Aksel Hennie.

Aksel Hennie plays Tydeus, one of the deadly mercenaries in Hercules' group, who brandishes a pair of deadly axes as his primary weapons. This video is part of the "Weapons" featurette on the Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray, where we see footage of Aksel Hennie's Tydeus in action, using these twin blades to take out any enemy he sees in front of him.

We also hear from an unidentified crew member, who reveals that they came up with a device allowing Aksel Hennie to hang these weapons on his belt for easy access, and that the actor was rarely seen without the metal weapons on set. »

23 September 2014 1:14 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Brett Ratner's Hercules starring Dwayne Johnson, otherwise known as The Rock, will be hacking and slashing its way to Digital HD on October 21, followed by a November 4 release date for Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD.

Johnson plays the titular character who leads a mission with other warriors into a battle with overwhelmingly impossible odds. The film also stars Ian McShane, Joseph Fiennes, Rufus Sewell and John Hurt.

The home video debut of Hercules features an additional three minutes of footage spliced into a new "extended cut" for Blu-ray and DVD. The Blu-ray 3D version is strictly the theatrical cut; however, since the Blu-ray 3D edition is a combo pack, you can watch the extended cut on the Blu-ray from the same package. Paramount and Ratner didn't bother with 3D-encoding the extra minutes of footage.

Audio is being presented in English Dolby Atmos (7.1 Dolby TrueHD compatible), the second Paramount title »

“‘We Watched the Sun Disappear’ contains some of the same elements that turned me on with ‘When Animals Dream.’ It has a very cinematographic backdrop and is set within the same kind of microcosmos,” Arnby said.

Lionsgate Buys Opera-Themed Comedy ‘The Three Tenors’

20 August 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Lionsgate has bought The Three Tenors, an ensemble comedy spec by Johnny Rosenthal that will be produced by Patrick Aiello. Think A Night At The Opera meets Anchorman here as the comedy traces the rise and fall, and then another rise and fall and then rise, of a fictional trio of internationally beloved operatic superstars. This sounds pretty good; I always wondered why Adam Sandler never turned his Opera Man character into a feature.

Erik Feig, Co-President of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, and Summit Evp Production Meredith Milton acquired the project and are overseeing for the studio. Rosenthal recently wrote Bad Santa 2 for Dimension and Iron Jack for Sony. Aiello just produced the Legendary Pictures/Universal thriller As Above So Below that will open August 28 and he is in production on director Kevin Reynolds’ first-century epic thriller Clavius, which stars Joseph Fiennes and Tom Felton.

Tom Felton And Joseph Fiennes On For Clavius

3 August 2014 5:10 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Because Bible-spawned films are all the rage at the moment, it’s perhaps not that surprising that yet another one is busily gearing up. Waterworld director Kevin Reynolds is preparing to make Clavius and has Tom Felton and Joseph Fiennes set to star.Aiming to take a different track from the (relatively) more straightforward adaptations Noah and Exodus: Gods & Kings, Clavius is instead looking at the Jesus story from another angle. The script, from Paul Aiello and Reynolds, follows the titular agnostic Roman centurion (Fiennes) who is dispatched by Pontius Pilate to investigate the rumours that the Messiah has risen from the grave and to track down Jesus’ allegedly missing body.As he digs into the story, looking to subdue an uprising in Jerusalem, his doubts about the supernatural event begin to waver as he meets the apostles and other people.
