The Sea review 'lugubrious' adaptation of John Banville novel

19 April 2014 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Ciarán Hands is a little too insistent in his grief in this glum bereavement drama

John Banville adapts his own 2005 Man Booker-winning novel as a glum bereavement drama of the rain-on-windowpanes variety. Ciarán Hinds plays a widowed art critic who returns to the scene of a sun-kissed but ultimately painful summer of his childhood a lost world inhabited by louche bohemian adults (Natascha McElhone, Rufus Sewell, both ripe as all hell) who seem to be trapped for eternity in a Jack Vettriano painting. Hinds plays the bibulous grief a little too insistently with jowls a-quiver, but Sinéad Cusack, pithy as the dead wife, and a silky Charlotte Rampling bring some tone. Otherwise, a lugubriously literary affair.

The Sea review glum psychodrama adapted from Booker winner

16 April 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

John Banville reduces his Booker prizewinner to jumbled pound-shop Proustisms in this choppy adaptation

Reading on mobile? Click here to view The Sea trailer

More proof that writers should be kept from adapting their own work comes with Stephen Brown's glumly listing psychodrama, in which John Banville reduces his Booker prizewinner to jumbled pound-shop Proustisms. Grieving scribe Ciaran Hinds's return to the coastal getaway of his youth strands us amid oddly artificial, advert-coloured flashbacks; there, we're left waiting for some formative trauma to reveal itself, while rent-a-rake Rufus Sewell struggles to pull off an Adge Cutler-like hat-and-neckerchief combo. Hinds is a strong, wounded presence, but the laboured structure cuts insistently around him to get at a psychology mostly scrambled in translation. This Sea's just too choppy.

Hercules Battles Huge Beasts in New Trailer

14 April 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

July 25 is edging nearer and nearer, meaning we’re getting closer to the release of Paramount and MGM’s film, “Hercules.” The film, based on Radical Comics’ “Hercules” by Steve Moore, stars Dwayne Johnson as the mythical hero himself alongside Golden Globe Winner Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan and Academy Award®-nominee John Hurt. The film will show Hercules going through the tremendous task of The 12 Labors, but with a revisionist slant. Also, since Hercules is played by none other than Johnson, whose previous incarnation was as wrestling hero The Rock, you can expect tons of action, including sword fighting, fists, and anything else that needs bulging muscles.  [ Read More ]

Action-Packed New TV Spot for Hercules Starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

14 April 2014 4:19 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

During last night’s MTV Movie Awards, a brand new TV spot for Brett Ratner’s Hercules aired, featuring plenty of never before seen action-packed footage from the highly anticipated movie which stars WWE Superstar turned Hollywood’s highest grossing actor, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

Based on Radical Comics’ Hercules: The Thracian Wars series, the big screen adaptation will be directed by Brett Ratner and picks up with a slightly older and more experienced Hercules. There’s undoubtedly franchise potential here, especially with a star like The Rock in the titular role.

The special effects also seem to have been improved since the release of the first trailer, and it looks like an awful lot of fun. Be sure to stay tuned for more on Hercules, and let us know what you think of this new footage in the comment section below!

Everyone knows the legend of Hercules and his twelve labors. »

Adapted from the Man Booker Prize winning novel of the same name, Stephen Brown’s feature debut deals with the demons that haunt our past and present. Opening to an expression of abject horror, we witness Max letting the seawater engulf him and his ostensible problems before snapping to a well-dressed version of himself. In the process of receiving terrible news, Max turns to drink and begins trudging through the past. Revisiting a picturesque estate he frequented as a child, the elegant Miss Vavasour (Charlotte Rampling) helps him through his addiction, while family secrets are uncovered with less than deft precision.

As Max struggles through this difficult situation, »

The epic adventure opens in theaters from July 25th, 2014, and is based on Radical Comics’ "Hercules" by Steve Moore. Also in the cast are Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan and John Hurt. Fourteen hundred years ago, a tormented soul walked the earth that was neither man nor god. Hercules was the powerful son of the god king Zeus, for this he received nothing but suffering his entire life. After twelve arduous labors and the loss of his family, this dark, world-weary soul turned his back on the gods finding his only solace in bloody battle. Over the years he warmed to the company of six similar souls, their only bond being their love of fighting and presence of death. These men and woman never question where they go to fight or why or whom, »

‘Hercules’ Is Not Afraid In This First Clip From Brett Ratner’s Film

12 April 2014 1:55 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The first Hercules film, you know, the one that starred Kellan Lutz last month, failed to set cinema screens alight, so studio bosses may be twitching a little ahead of the Brett Ratner/ Dwayne Johnson version this summer. We’ll reserve judgement on the film until its release of course, but here’s a first clip from the adventure featuring the title character, John Hurt and Rufus Sewell’s characters as they approach a ‘trap’.

Hercules arrives in cinemas on the 25th July in the Us, and the 8th August in the UK.

Dwayne Johnson doesn't care if it's a trap in new 'Hercules' clip

11 April 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) MTV has posted a new clip from the Brett Ratner-directed "Hercules" in anticipation of the MTV Movie Awards on April 13. The footage features Dwayne Johnson as Hercules, John Hurt as Cotys and more as Hercules’ army walks straight into a trap. It’s not the first footage revealed from the upcoming film — a teaser trailer released in late March — but it certainly gives a much better idea of what to expect from the movie. Based on the Radical Publishing series "Hercules: The Thracian Wars" by Steve Moore and Admira Wijaya, the film is a slightly different take on the mythological demigod, following his journey as a sword-for-hire who is contracted by the King of Thrace to train his men into the greatest army in history. Opening July 25, "Hercules" also stars Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, Rebecca Ferguson, Ingrid Bolso Berdal, Aksel Hennie and Reece Ritchie. »

Hercules Prepares For Battle In New Clip

10 April 2014 10:25 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Dwayne Johnson would have to stoop pretty low to do worse than January’s The Legend of Hercules with his upcoming swords-and-sandals epic Hercules. Not only is he a much better fit for the legendary warrior than Kellan Lutz, but his take on the character also features a strong supporting cast, Rush Hour‘s Brett Ratner as director, and a larger scale (the original title was Hercules: The Thracian Wars, so filmgoers can expect some epic battle sequences).

Though the first clip from Hercules doesn’t showcase much action, it definitely hints at real carnage to come. In the footage shown here, we see Hercules and his men walk into a trap set by ferocious, painted warriors. As the enemy forces bear down on his army, Hercules dons a lion head (the same as the one seen in the first full trailer). “Look at me?” Hercules says. “Do I look afraid? »

Hercules Clip Offers The Rock A Choice Between Honorable Battle or Merciful Defeat

10 April 2014 9:38 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

After the rather lackluster release of the Renny Harlin film The Legend of Hercules, the last thing the public probably wants to see is another stab at telling the legend of the son of the Zeus. Brett Ratner cares not of these concerns, as his version of Hercules is scheduled for release this July 25th. What this film does have that the previous film didn't is the star power of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (fresh off of the year that brought us Pain and Gain and Fast and Furious 6), flanked by genre stalwarts John Hurt, Ian McShane, and Rufus Sewell. Only two of those actors are present in this short clip from MTV in the run up to their 2013 Movie Awards, airing this Sunday. In the clip, Hercules (Johnson), accompanied by Cotys (Hurt), Autolycus (Sewell), and an army of men, spots a village that looks to have already fallen to »
