14 April 2014 9:58 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Equal parts humor and heart, Cuban Fury tells the story of Bruce Garrett (Nick Frost), a man who gave up his dream of winning the UK Junior Salsa Championships, 25 years ago.  Now, he’s out of shape, unloved and doing a job he’s not passionate about, until the arrival of his smart, funny, gorgeous new American boss, Julia (Rashida Jones) reawakens his love of salsa dancing.  From an original idea by Nick Frost, the film also stars Chris O’Dowd, Olivia Colman, Ian McShane and Kayvan Novak. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Nick Frost talked about where the idea for this film came from, his secret dream to be a dancer, why he decided not to write the film himself, shooting a full-on dance fight scene, how Simon Pegg ended up doing a cameo, how grueling the dance training was, finding the right balance in tone, »

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. »

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, »

Interview: Nick Frost Kicks Up His Salsa Heels in ‘Cuban Fury’

11 April 2014 6:41 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Nick Frost has played character and comic roles as the affable sidekick, especially in the famed “Cornetto Trilogy” – “Shaun of the Dead,” “Hot Fuzz’ and “The World’s End” – alongside Simon Pegg and director Edgar Wright. Frost is a leading man now, strutting his stuff on the salsa dance floor in “Cuban Fury.”

This high concept film has Bruce (Nick Frost) revisiting his childhood roots as a championship salsa dancer, after as an adult engineer he falls for his sales manager Julia (Rashida Jones). Turns out Jones is also into salsa, and Bruce believes that taking up the dance again is the best way to woo her. The film co-stars Chris O’Dowd as the rival suitor for Julia and Ian McShane as Bruce’s old salsa coach.

Review: Nick Frost delivers a winning performance in 'Cuban Fury'

11 April 2014 1:58 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) I am a complete sucker when it comes to movies about people dancing, a fact that is probably more responsible for my enjoyment of "Cuban Fury" than its actual merits. Endlessly formulaic and occasionally dispiritingly cruel, Nick Frost’s pet project (he wrote it in addition to starring in it) offers audiences exactly what they have come to expect from a serio-comical journey of self-discovery, set against the backdrop of a marginalized/obscure/little known artistic subculture. But winning performances from Frost and his co-star Rashida Jones, as well as some moderately inspiring dance sequences, elevate "Cuban Fury" to — well, the ranks of the better of these films, even if it’s otherwise just generically engaging. Frost plays Bruce Garrett, a machinist who abandoned a promising career as a salsa dancer when he was 10 after a group of bullies pummeled him on the night of the national championships. Shuffling »

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. »

Battle of the Sequels: ‘Captain America,’ ‘Rio 2′ Each Tracking in High-$30 Millions

10 April 2014 4:32 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A tight race between Disney-Marvel’s holdover “Captain America: The Winter Solder” and Fox-Blue Sky Studios’ “Rio 2″ is shaping up at the weekend’s domestic box office, with both films tracking in the high-$30 millions to low-$40 millions range.

Observers anticipate that “Rio 2″ should at least match the Stateside opening of its predecessor, which grossed $39.3 million in 2011. If “Winter Soldier” drops 55% in its second frame, it will land with approximately $43 million through Sunday. More conservative expectations, however, suggest the holdover may fall around 60%, which would translate to a $38 million weekend gross.

Word of mouth for the Marvel tentpole has been exceptional, with strong mid-week grosses headed into the Easter holiday. It could see a hold of just less than 60%, comparable to the first two “Iron Man” films.

To date, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” has amassed a whopping $363 million globally.

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? »
