Many a year ago, Taylor Kitsch was lauded as the next great male heartthrob. Then came John Carter. Then, Battleship. Now, he’s lucky to have landed a role in Almost Heroes 3D, the next animated feature from DigiArt Productions (which sounds more than a little like an accredited online institute). Kellan Lutz has clearly been studying under Kitsch’s wing- stepping into the spotlight as a somewhat generic megahunk with the Twilight films and Immortals, then plunging immediately downward. The actor may be a part of the next Expendables film, but so is every other male actor in Hollywood; the only two starring roles he’s got lined up now are a couple of low-budget clunkers. Neither Hercules: The Legend Begins nor Tarzan 3D have a whole lot going for them. So let’s start with Hercules, shall we? The film is already in the unfortunate position of going up against Dwayne Johnson‘s 265 pounds of »

It was over a year ago that we saw the first posters for the latest incarnation of Tarzan. This time we get to see a film both in 3D and shot completely using motion capture (the same effect that was achieved to create films like Avatar).
The latest iteration of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic story will be arriving on the big screen next summer, this time under the direction of Reinhard Klooss (Animals United). Kellan Lutz (Twilight, Immortals) leads the motion-capture cast, alongside Spencer Locke (Resident Evil: Afterlife) as Jane, and Jaime Ray Newman (A Town Called Eureka), Robert Capron (Diary of a Wimpy Kid), Mark Deklin (Gcb), and Trevor St. John (One Life to Live).
One of the most classic and revered stories of all time, »

A new trailer has arrived for Summit Entertainment's The Legend of Hercules starring Kellan Lutz of Immortals, also known as Hercules: The Legend Begins prior to being changed after Summit picking up N. American distribution rights from producer Millennium Films. Lutz stars as the mythical Greek hero – the son of Zeus, a half-god, half-man blessed with extraordinary strength. Betrayed by his stepfather, the King, and exiled and sold into slavery because of a forbidden love, Hercules must use his formidable powers to fight his way back to his rightful kingdom. Through harrowing battles and gladiator-arena death matches, Hercules embarks on a legendary odyssey to overthrow the King and restore peace to the land. Also in the cast of the Renny Harlin-directed fantasy adventure are Scott Adkins, Liam McIntyre, Liam Garrigan, Johnathon Schaech, Roxanne McKee, Gaia Weiss and Rade Serbedzija. »
Hercules: The Legend Begins has released a new trailer.
Set in ancient Greece, Hercules is betrayed by his king, who steals his lover and sends the warrior into exile.
Sold into slavery, he must embrace his heritage as the son of Zeus to seek justice and revenge.
Hercules: The Legend Begins will open in the Us on January 10 and in the UK on August 8. »
There will be two Hercules movies hitting theaters in 2014. One stars Dwayne Johnson (Fast & Furious 7) – playing an older version of Herc who has devolved into a world-weary mercenary for hire – while the other is titled Hercules: The Legend Begins and features Twilight alum Kellan Lutz playing a younger version of Zeus’ son (who could be mistaken for a JCrew model).
Much like the Comic-Con preview footage, the newly-unveiled trailer for The Legend Begins illustrates the continuing influence of Zack Snyder’s 300 on the swords and sandals genre. Question is, following less impressionable acts like the Clash of the Titans remake and Tarsem Singh’s Immortals, have audiences grown tired of seeing ancient world mythology given the modern pop-action movie treatment (see: slick digital visuals, 3D effects, etc.)?

Tagline: "The moment you wake up, the nightmare begins." Open Grave is a post-apocalyptic thriller from Spanish director Gonzalo López-Gallego (Apollo 18).

The film stars Joseph Morgan (Immortals), Thomas Kretschmann (Stalingrad) and Sharlto Copley. Most recently, an English clip was released for this film, called "Drop Your Weapons."

Open Grave will release in the United States, beginning December 24th, 2013. This small feature looks to bring some intrigue and mystery to »

In the current era of The Avengers and Batman Vs. Superman, it’s impossible to be a fan of the comic-book genre and not have a well-considered argument to the question, “Who’s the Most Powerful Superhero?” Superman, of course, is the most obvious answer in any superpower battle-royale debate, but there are strong and more interesting claims to be made for the others, too. (Except Hawkeye. Sorry, guy.)
In Hollywood offices, there are similar conversations going on all the time about their own legion of superheroes, those famous actors and actresses who can open a movie in New York, »

With Paul Greengrass. tense drama Captain Phillips currently in theaters creating waves of awards buzz, it.s obvious that pirates are still popular among movie audiences. But what about the animated kind? We.ll soon see, as Donald Sutherland.s production company Martin.s River Ink is setting sail with Pirate.s Passage. Sutherland is taking the lead role in the movie, and is joined by co-stars Carrie-Anne Moss, Gage Munroe (Immortals) and Kim Coates (Sons of Anarchy). Sounds like a right fine stash of booty here, doesn.t it? According to Variety, the film will be directed by Sutherland.s producing partner Brad Peyton (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island) and Pip Animation.s Mike Barth, who worked in the animation department on the series The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That. Peyton adapted the script from the 2006 novel of the same name by William Gilkerson. Sutherland »
The general approach to the marketing of next month's "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" (the second chapter in the "Hobbit" trilogy from original "Lord of the Rings" director Peter Jackson), is, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." The trailers and other marketing materials in the lead-up to the film have closely mirrored the "Lord of the Rings" materials to an almost eerie degree. And just as we had honey-colored pre-release posters for Frodo, so too do we have them for Bilbo and the gang.
The posters (courtesy of Empire) feature Ian McKellan's Gandalf, Orlando Bloom's Legolas, and some new characters played by Evangeline Lily (ABC's "Lost") and Luke Evans ("Immortals"). Oh, and also Martin Freeman, who stars as the titular hobbit Bilbo. Many of the characters look oddly airbrushed, but that could be the patented "Middle Earth glow."

The first trailer for writer-director Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive is now available. The picture stars Tilda Swinton (Moonrise Kingdom) and Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers) as Eve and Adam, two vampires who have been in love for centuries. That basic plot description is a bit bland, so it comes as a nice surprise that this first look at the film is decidedly more emotionally complex and visually interesting. Our own Phil Brown had a chance to see the film at Tiff 2013, so you can read up on his review here. Also starring Mia Wasikowska (Stoker), John Hurt (Immortals), Jeffrey Wright (Boardwalk Empire), and Anton Yelchin (Star Trek Into Darkness), Only Lovers Left Alive debuts internationally early this December, but no domestic release date has been set just yet. Hit the jump to watch the trailer. Check out the first trailer for Only Lovers Left Alive below (via Ontd »

Next year’s full of potentially great films, so to help, here’s a list of 25 movies we're most looking forward to in 2014...
These lists of anticipated forthcoming movies have become an annual fixture by now, and as ever, our selection has been tricky to whittle down. In restricting our list to just 25, we've tried to create a mix of the high-profile and the less obvious. Movies such as Non-Stop, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, Big Hero Six and Edge Of Tomorrow came close but didn't quite make the cut, even though they have much to offer for their own reasons.
Furthermore, given the number of films competing for space, we've left the latest chapters of The Hunger Games and The Hobbit off the list. We're keen to see both, but we're wary of taking up slots with movies »
With the dissolution of her marriage and the death of her mother, Cheryl Strayed (Reese Witherspoon) has lost all hope. After years of reckless, destructive behavior, she makes a rash decision. With absolutely no experience, driven only by sheer determination, Cheryl hikes more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, alone. Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddens, strengthens, and ultimately heals her.
The film stars Oscar winner Witherspoon (Walk The Line, Mud) and also features Thomas Sadoski (HBO’s “The Newsroom”), Michiel Huisman (World War Z, HBO’s “Treme”), W. Earl Brown (The Lone Ranger, There’S Something About Mary), Gaby Hoffman (Sleepless In Seattle, »

“You’re wrong. And here’s why…” The gloriously satisfying few words you can use to intellectually smash your opponent next time they try to tell you Knowing or Event Horizon are big ‘ol stinkers.
The following list doesn’t just comprise of some misunderstood films you may have a better time with than first thought, but contains some genuine gems that by circumstance or ignorance have been criminally overlooked.
10. The Cell
Tarsem Singh’s first feature, The Cell, is a violently underrated descent into the beautifully depraved mind of a killer. It was widely panned upon its 2000 release with critics and the public alike mounting a venomous assault against, as Common Sense Media put it, a movie with “no plot, no logic, no meaning”.
Behind J-Lo’s skin-tight muscle onsie and the music video visuals, lies a brave, captivating cocktail of genres and creativity unrivaled on its release. I »
