14 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Kellan Lutz has the body of a Greek god, so its only fitting that he's playing one. In The Legend of Hercules, the shirtless actor performs a number of intricately choreographed action moves. "I love doing my own stunts," the 29-year-old says in an exclusive behind the scenes video. Renny Harlin directed the movie, released in January 2014. The flick also stars Scott Adkins, Liam Garrigan, Liam McIntyre, Roxanne McKee, Johnathon Schaech, Rade Šerbedžija and Gaia Weiss.

“Warehouse 13″‘s Final Episodes, Don’t Expect Benedict Cumberbatch on “Doctor Who” and “Sharknado 2″ Seeks Crowdfunding

14 April 2014 4:38 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »


One common trait to new Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon and his future Late Night competitor Stephen Colbert‘s history as late night hosts — they both have made several can’t-miss musical moments, like Carly Rae Jepsen‘s “Call Me Maybe” performed with toy instruments, Stephen’s Daft Punk-free Daft Punk performance or that time Taylor Hicks performed “Friday” with both Stephen and Jimmy.

Meanwhile, Splitsider looks at four directions Comedy Central will likely pick for a Colbert Report replacement. My dream sees Comedy Central managing to lure the hilarious No, You Shut Up! away from Fusion. (Let me remind you, this is a show where Paul F. Tompkins and Muppets — Muppets! — parody Crossfire. If the clips available are a good representation, it would fill that Colbert Report-sized hole nicely.)

They know how to be fun, fun, fun fun.

Exclusive Preview: Syfy's Metal Hurlant Chronicles

10 April 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

On Monday, April 14, at 8Pm, Syfy will be premiering its newest series, "Metal Hurlant Chronicles". The show is imported from French company We Productions and follows the sci-fi anthology Metal Hurlant, better known in the United States as Heavy Metal.

We got a sneak peek and will let you know what to expect.

The episode Syfy shared with Dread Central is "King's Crown," based on a bloody tournament being held to determine the new king as the previous ruler is nearing death.

The episode is absolutely loaded with awesome fighting action featuring Michael Jai White and Scott Adkins. The athleticism and choreography displayed in the various dueling scenes is easily worth the price of admission here.

Aside from the fighting, which is obviously the centerpiece of the episode, the acting is okay and the digital effects are very good at times, but not always consistent. There are a few spots »

Journey 2 writers Mark and Brian Gunn to script Timecop reboot

9 April 2014 2:57 PM, PDT | | See recent JoBlo news »

The last time I wrote anything on the Timecop reboot was the announcement that they were actually doing it last year. Then I did a Cast This for the character of Max Walker originally played by the legendary Jean-Claude Van Damme. The schmoes top three choices included: Scott Adkins, Jason Statham, and Karl Urban. Any of those sound like good picks to you? Unfortunately, I don.t have any casting news for you today. Instead we have a pair of writers set to pen the script. Mark and Brian »

The Tony Jaa Interview By Justyn (King Of Kung Fu)

7 April 2014 5:51 PM, PDT | AsianMoviePulse | See recent AsianMoviePulse news »


Tony Jaa is one of the most talked about Action stars in the world, with his ground-breaking action and stunt work, he will certainly be around for a long, long time. The first time i seen Tony in Ong Bak, i could not believe what i was seeing, just incredible stuff i had not seen since the first time i watched Jackie Chan in Police Story. Hard hitting fight scenes, excellent stunt work, incredible flexibility, and just had a fresh approach of Martial Arts movie making.

Apart from starring in movies, Tony has also been stunt work in Mortal Kombat Annihilation for the character Liu Kang (Robin Shou). I recently heard he also doubled Sammo Hung, when he did a commercial which required him to somersault onto the elephant’s back.

Over recent years, Tony Jaa has proved to the world what he can deliver on »

Scott Adkins Wants A Role In The Raid: Redemption Remake

30 March 2014 2:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With The Raid 2 now in theatres, talks of an American remake of its predecessor, The Raid: Redemption, are starting to heat up. We heard a few weeks ago that Patrick Hughes would be at the helm and now, the casting process seems to be underway. Originally rumored for the two lead roles were the Hemsworth brothers, but with no confirmation on that just yet, a couple of other actors are expressing interest in the film.

While speaking to Total Film, Scott Adkins, who has proven himself a capable fighter many times in the past, said that he’s a fan of the original film (who isn’t?) and would love to star in the remake.

“I’m a huge fan, I’m a massive fan, and this is no secret: I’m friends with Gareth. And, absolutely, of course I would love to, that’s all I’ll say at this point. »

The Legend of Hercules review: Dental extraction is more enjoyable

29 March 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Renny Harlin; Screenwriters: Sean Hood, Daniel Giat; Starring: Kellan Lutz, Gaia Weiss, Roxanne McKee, Scott Adkins; Running time: 99 mins; Certificate: 12A

This abysmal attempt to give Hercules an origin story falters on every dramatic, thematic and visual level possible. Was it designed to be a tax loss? Even dental extraction is more enjoyable to endure than this artistically bankrupt misfire. The only saving grace is its mercifully short length, a characteristic that's often lambasted in the bedroom but embraced at mythical Hollywood blockbuster attempts.

The foul stench of feebleness is secreted right from the opening frames of The Legend of Hercules, with an extended prologue that's more snooze-stimulator than scene-setter. An attempt to give context to the birth of the brawny Greek hero Hercules, it eschews establishing either characters or circumstances in favour of tedious swordfighting sequences in which the action is repeatedly 'frozen' by director Renny Harlin for »

Scott Adkins would love to play a part in Patrick Hughes' The Raid remake

28 March 2014 2:28 PM, PDT | | See recent JoBlo news »

Yeah, I'm not happy about The Raid remake either, but all we can do is hope it will be just as vicious as the original. And hey, at least Gareth Evans is executive producing the remake, and maybe director Patrick Hughes will find some actors who actually know martial arts. Scott Adkins definitely knows a thing or two about throwing down. Total Film recently asked the actor if he's a fan of Gareth Evans' film, and if he's at all interested in the remake. »

Scott Adkins talks The Raid remake

27 March 2014 10:09 AM, PDT | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

We spoke to Scott Adkins about awesome martial arts epic Ninja: Shadow Of A Tear (out on DVD and Blu-ray on May 12 - expect a feature on the site soon) and while we had him, we decided to ask about another epic martial arts franchise, The Raid. If they absolutely have to remake Gareth Evans' incredible Indonesian action flick in the Us, we can't think of many better people to star in it than Adkins - so we asked him if he was aware of the project. Are you a fan of The Raid and, if so, would you be interested in being part of the remake? ...

Syfy Releases New Trailer For Pick-Up 'Metal Hurlant Chronicles' Season 1 + Sets April Premiere Date (Michael Jai White Stars)

26 March 2014 12:33 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

A month ago, Syfy announced that it had acquired the first two seasons of French fantasy/action series Metal Hurlant. The series premiered on French television on October 27, 2012 on France 4, and soon after, broadcast rights for various European countries such as Germany, Austria, Luxembourg were bought, but no USA rep. At the time, I fully expected that, with a handful of actors recognizable to American audiences, it would surely be available to USA audiences a lot sooner; but better late than never. Recapping... Announced at the MIPCom (the annual TV and entertainment market held in Cannes in October) in 2011, Michael Jai White co-stars (alongside Rutger Hauer, Scott Adkins, Joe Flanigan and James Marsters) in a live-action TV series adaptation of the Métal Hurlant Chronicles fantasy comics magazine. Eriq Ebouaney (likely best know in the west as the star of Raoul Peck's Patrice Lumumba biopic) is part of the supporting cast. »
