Evil Changes its Identity in The Devil's Hand

28 July 2014 7:50 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

It's been awhile since last we heard anything about Ld Entertainment’s Where the Devil Hides, but the flick has undergone a name change and more! Read on for the latest details including when you'll be able to see it!

Roadside Attractions has earmarked an October 10 Us release for The Devil’s Hand, formerly Where The Devil Hides, formerly The Devil's Rapture. Directed by Christian E. Christiansen, the flick stars Jennifer Carpenter, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Rufus Sewell, Thomas McDonell, Adelaide Kane, Leah Pipes, Colm Meaney, Stacey Edwards, and Ric Reitz.

Lionsgate will release The Devil’s Hand on VOD, DVD, and TV platforms.

Synopsis

Something very strange happened in the small village of New Bethlehem, a devout community kept under the tight reins of the town's vigilant Elders. Six girls born on the same day to different mothers. Perhaps a coincidence or, as most believe, a chilling omen of something yet to come. »

New Hercules 2014 Movie Delivered Great Action,Drama & More

26 July 2014 8:15 PM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

MGM and Paramount Pictures released their new "2014 Hercules" remake/action/fantasy flick into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out and thought it was very entertaining, serving up plenty of hardcore action, drama, and more. It stars: Dwayne Johnson, Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, John Hurt, Rebecca Ferguson, Ingrid Bolso Berdal, Aksel Hennie, and Reece Ritchie. In the new flick, Hercules (Dwayne Johnson) is the leader of a band of mercenaries formed by the prophet Amphiaraus (Ian McShane), the thief Autolycus (Rufus Sewell), the warrior Tydeus (Aksel Hennie), the archer Atalanta (Ingrid Bolsø Berdal) and the storyteller Iolaus (Reece Ritchie). Hercules is believed to be the demigod son of Zeus, who completed the legendary Twelve Labors, only to be betrayed by Hera, who drove him insane and caused him to murder his wife Megara and their children when he visited King Eurystheus. After that drama, Hercules »

Film Review: ‘A’ for Effort, ‘C’ for Execution in Dwayne Johnson’s Unmemorable ‘Hercules’

26 July 2014 5:47 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – I empathize with Dwayne Johnson and simultaneously don’t. Most people never get rich and famous once, let alone twice. Sure, it’s hard to re-brand people from the wrestling superstar you once were into the dramatic action star you’re trying to become, but your past is forever immortal.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

Like Jackie Chan wants to be viewed as a dramatic actor instead of a funny karate man, so too does Dwayne Johnson want to drop his wrestling image as The Rock and be taken seriously as a real actor. The problem is he’s all over the place. It’s hard to be Hercules when you’re being remembered as campy in films like “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island” and the upcoming “Journey 3: From the Earth to the Moon”.

This isn’t having actor’s range. Having real range is Charlize Theron successfully branching out with a challenging role in “Monster. »

Stephen Farber at The Hollywood Reporter, gave it a 70 grade. He said: "It may sound like a backhanded compliment to praise this sometimes cheesy movie for never taking itself too seriously, »

'Hercules' (2014) Movie Review

25 July 2014 8:18 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Originality in any form is not something you're going to find in Brett Ratner's Hercules. Take any PG-13 sword and sandal film you've seen lately -- glossy and gritty, drenched in black blood -- and add touches of Gladiator and Braveheart and you have this supposed "new" tale of the son of Zeus, or, as the film tells us... like... the real Zeus. You know, the Greek God and stuffc You know the one... rightc Yeah, we get it! The easiest comparison is to say Ratner has "updated" Hercules in the same way Marcus Nispel updated Conan, though this film does seem better than that one if only because it's shorter. The Nispel comparison seems apt, though, if you consider the visual palette Ratner is working with and the overall blunt force numbness of the plot. Adapted from Radical Studios' graphic novel "Hercules: The Thracian Wars", Hercules finds our »

Hercules (2014) – The Review

24 July 2014 11:14 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

For the last few years, Summertime has been super-hero time at the multiplexes. It seems ever other week another costumed character with incredible abilities is battling away for a big chunk of the box office pie. But what about the original amazing avenger? Sure the Man Of Steel was here last Summer and is gearing up for his return (when he’ll face off against another hero). Nope let’s go way, way back to the real original, that demigod Hercules. The superstar of Greek mythology has been a cinema staple since the late 1950′s when American Steve Reeves laced up his sandals in two surprise hits imported from Italy. Reeves was the first of many famed body-builders to portray him right through 1969 with Arnold Schwarzenegger in Hercules In New York and 1983 with TV’s Hulk Lou Ferrigno in a pair of low-budget epics from Cannon Films. The man of muscle also went animated, »

Review: Hercules, A Pretty Good Hot Dog

24 July 2014 11:07 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Brett Ratner may have finally found his niche. Freed of a modern-day setting and any thought of realism, the director's inclination toward outlandish action takes flight almost immediately. The opening moments of Hercules are narrated efficiently; the story takes place a long time ago in a fantasy world far, far away from ancient Greece. Thrace is the place, a mythical land filled with warfare and strife, a land where a mercenary Hercules (Dwayne Johnson) can stride freely with his small band of warriors, including his trusted lieutenant (Rufus Sewell), his prophet and advisor (Ian McShane), his trusty archer and token female (the very fit Norwegian actress Ingrid Bolsø Berdal), his nephew and storyteller (Reece Ritchie), and his mute and loyal friend (the great Aksel Hennie,...

Hercules Review

24 July 2014 5:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There aren’t many things less likely to inspire passion than the words “directed by Brett Ratner.” Say what you want about crowd pleasing blockbuster factories like Michael Bay, Zack Snyder or Justin Lin, but at least their work has a clearly defined style and inspires debate. Not Brett Ratner. Renowned as a workmanlike director, his main claim to fame is his ability to bring a project in on time and under budget. So the prospect of a new addition to the Ratner filmography wasn’t exactly setting my world on fire. Adding an additional note of sourness to proceedings is the widely publicized artist-led boycott of the film on the basis that the studio has bilked the late Steve Moore, (author of the comic books that this version of Hercules is based on), out of every penny he was due through sneaky contractual finagling.

Determined to stay optimistic, I »

Plot: Hercules (Dwayne Johnson), having completed his twelve labors, is now a sword-for-hire along with his comrades Autolycus (Rufus Sewell), Tydeus (Aksel Hennie), Amphiaraus (Ian McShane) and his nephew Iolaus (Reece Ritchie). He's recruited by a besieged king (John Hurt) to rescue his kingdom from a force of marauding warriors, but this latest task just may prove once-and-for-all whether or not he truly is the son of Zeus.
