2. Sony’s announcement that they will expand their rebooted Amazing Spider-Man franchise in every conceivable direction represents a new peak in Hollywood’s current vogue for franchise-building brinksmanship. Marvel Studios revealed their master plan gradually: Release an Iron Man here, announce a Thor there, wait until Avengers is a hit before you start really freaking people out with Guardians of the Galaxy.
After X-Men: First Class was an okay-not-gangbusters hit, Fox carefully retrenched: Mix in the original director and the original cast, throw out one fan-bait title (Days of Future Past) and then, when they least expect it, throw out another (Apocalypse. »

The Anchorman actor walked in during the forecast and stood in front of the weather map before offering Tobin some advice.
Tom Hanks could cheer any cold, grey morning with this dance-filled forecast. The actor was promoting Larry Crowne on a Spanish TV programme back in 2010, and when inevitably asked questions in Spanish which he didn't understand, he performed a little dance instead.
The next thing Hanks knew, he was presenting the weather forecast and dancing A Lot. We have no idea what's going on, and neither does Hanks.

What, exactly, is 300: Rise of an Empire, you ask – a sequel or prequel to Zack Snyder’s 300 comic book movie? Well both, technically-speaking, as the film explores the backstory of Persian leader Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) and reveals how he evolved into a power-hungry megalomaniac decked out in gold jewelry, before it moves ahead in time to Greek general Themistocles’ (Sullivan Stapleton) efforts to form a strong defense against the invading Persian naval forces led by Artemisia (Eva Green), a battle-hardened warrioress with a big chip on her shoulder.
Of course, all this is going on at the same time that King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) and his 300 Spartans faces off against the Persian’s thousand-strong army on land. Butler won’t be appearing in Rise of an Empire (not alive, anyway), but Lena Headey (Game of Thrones) is back ...

If there’s one man in the film industry who truly understands and supports the evolution of Jason Statham’s career, it’s Sylvester Stallone. Back in 2009, Statham already had two of his own cinematic franchises established, having just completed the second Crank film and had three Transporter movies under his belt, making him one of the few actors keeping the old-school action genre alive.
It was no surprise then, that Stallone hand picked him to co-star in The Expendables, in what always felt like a generational baton passing – not only had Sly recognised Statham’s work and dedication, but set him up with a franchise for life. Sure, The Expendables might cease production in the next few years either due »

Though his career is spottier than a leopard with chicken pox, I.d easily argue that Renny Harlin is a better director than fanboy dreamcrusher Zack Snyder. I.d take Die Hard 2 over Man of Steel any day. But I.m pretty sure Harlin needs to get his checkbook out and write a big fat one to Snyder for ripping off the central aesthetic and overall feel of 2006.s 300. At least, that.s how the trailer for Harlin.s Hercules: The Legend Begins makes the film look. And let me tell you something right now: Kellen Lutz is no Gerard Butler. I mean, sure he.s better in a romantic role, but not as one of the toughest badasses in fiction. Now that we.ve got those initial thoughts out of the way, can I go on the shame-filled record to say that I.m actually quite interested in »
