Exclusive Media will present award-winning writer/director Nimród Antal’s (Predators, Kontroll) captivating 3D concert/suspense film Metallica Through The Never featuring one of music’s most enduring and iconic bands to international buyers at this year’s upcoming Cannes Film Market, it was announced today by Exclusive Media’s President of International Sales and Distribution, Alex Walton.
Starring Metallica members Lars Ulrich, James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo, a cast of thousands of their fans and breakout star Dane DeHaan (Chronicle, The Amazing Spider-man 2), Metallica Through The Never is produced by former IMAX film producer Charlotte Huggins (Journey To The Center Of The Earth, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island). The film marries groundbreaking footage and editing techniques with a compelling narrative, in which a crewmember (played by DeHaan) is sent out on a mission during Metallica’s roaring live set »

Before it was officially announced, there were plenty of rumors that Mark Wahlberg was cast in "Transformers 4." Michael Bay eventually confirmed the news, stating that he was convinced that Wahlberg was the right person for the job after working together on "Pain and Gain." A bit later, Bay revealed that it was Wahlberg who asked him to be in the movie, because he wanted to make something that his kids could watch and be proud of. And now comes word there's a reason why Wahlberg had to approach Bay about the role. That reason is that Bay wanted another "Pain and Gain" actor. "Michael Bay offered me 'Transformers 4,' but I was unavailable due to 'Hercules,'" Dwayne Johnson wrote on Twitter on Friday. "Then Wahlberg was offered the role." It's not surprising that Bay first wanted Johnson, since the actor is often brought on to give new »
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has been involved with quite a few franchises/tentpoles in the past, having starred in G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, Fast Five (and this summer's Fast & Furious 6), and next year's Hercules. However, what would it have been like to see the wrestler-turned-actor tackle a Transformers movie? While it has been suggested in the past, Johnson answered that very question in today's "Rock Talk" Q&A session on Twitter. He revealed that his Pain & Gain director Michael Bay initially offered him the lead role in Transformers 4, but had to turn it down due to his filming Hercules this summer. Michael Bay offered me Transformers, but I was unavailable due to Hercules. Then Wahlberg was offered the role. #RockTalk @nadydi— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) April 26, 2013 As we all know, Mark Wahlberg (who also worked with Johnson on Pain & Gain, which is in »

Just call Dwayne Johnson "Franchise Viagra." After previously giving a box-office boost to both the "Fast & Furious" and "Journey" franchises ("Fast Five" and "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" far out-grossed their predecessors worldwide), Johnson has worked a similar kind of magic on the "G.I. Joe" series, as "Retaliation" has now officially bested "The Rise of Cobra" at the box-office with over a global take of over $320 million - a significant jump over the latter's $302 million (though it should be noted that unlike "Retaliation," "Cobra" did not enjoy the benefit of those 3D surcharges). "Retaliation's" overseas performance is no doubt what put »

Here's a very, very interesting "what if?" scenario. In their article reporting the actor's negotiations to star in Warner Bros.' Focus, The Hollywood Reporter adds a small note about the studio's desire to reteam with Will Smith, who starred in 2007's I Am Legend. The site says that WB has courted Smith (who will next be seen in June 7th's After Earth) for several projects, and one of these was none other than Lobo, one of several DC Comics adaptations said to be in development. Presumably, Smith was being targeted to play the infamous intergalactic bounty hunter before Dwayne Johnson (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) entered talks to take on the role. Despite being interested in the project (which would've seen his reteaming with Journey 2: The Mysterious Island director Brad Peyton), "The Rock" more recently stated that the film "just went away", suggesting that Lobo is no longer in active development. »
Dwayne Johnson is certainly starting to develop a knack for reinvigorating franchises; three of his last four movies have seen him joining the cast at the sequel stage, with Fast Five, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and G.I. Joe: Retaliation all raking in the cash at the box office. We already know he's set to return to the Fast & Furious franchise for this year's Fast & Furious 6 (along with next year's Fast & Furious 7, which has just been officially announced by Vin Diesel), and now it seems he's set to return to the role of Roadblock for G.I. Joe 3, which has already been given the green light by Paramount Pictures.
"What we would love to do with the sequel to G.I. Joe, which will definitely happen—we set ourselves up nicely with this past G.I. Joe because we really paid attention with respected homage to the mythology," said Johnson in an interview with Collider. »

Though 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra was a sizeable success at the box office, Paramount decided to retool their approach to the franchise with this year’s sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation. The studio’s secret weapon for the follow-up was Dwayne Johnson, who has quickly become a kind of “human steroid injection” for film franchises in need of a punch-up (see also: Fast Five and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island). Johnson took the lead this time around as Roadblock, and the result was an impressive $40.5 million opening weekend with a worldwide total currently sits at a little over $270 million. Understandably, Paramount officially greenlit yet another G.I. Joe sequel mere days after Retaliation opened in theaters. Steve recently spoke with Johnson in anticipation of Michael Bay’s upcoming black comedy Pain & Gain, and the actor talked briefly about the preliminary plans for G.I. Joe 3. Hit the jump »

Director Brad Anderson has roped two other heavy hitters: Michael Caine and Ben Kingsley to the cast of Eliza Graves, an adaptation of an early Edgar Allan Poe story titled ‘The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether.’ Two great actors previously stared in a hilarious version of Sherlock Holmes – a 1988 British comedy film, Without A Clue. They’ll be joining the recently announced Jim Sturgess and Kate Beckinsale in the psychological thriller, which is written by Joe Gangemi. Eliza Graves will focus on a Harvard Medical School graduate (Sturgess) who takes a job at an insane asylum, unaware of the fact that it...

Wrestlers that have previously attempted to crossover into movies have only enjoyed a limited success at best; Roddy Piper, Andre the Giant and even American icon, Hulk Hogan tried and failed at forging acting careers. Even since the massive success The Rock has attained, most wrestlers have failed to emulate his fortune. John Cena, Kevin Nash, Triple H, Steve Austin and Goldberg have all embraced feature films but they’ve had limited success at best and their movies have mostly been constrained to straight-to-dvd releases.
The Rock, so far, is the only man to be at the top of both industries, which has a lot to do with his endless charisma and ability to appeal to people of all ages. He’s the perfect action star – he’s witty, physically huge, charismatic and has an outer strength that is unrivalled. After putting some dubious acting decisions behind him, The Rock »

G.I. Joe: Retaliation isn’t the first time Dwayne Johnson has lent his star power to a pre-existing franchise. It’s actually the third time he’s done it in two years – after jumping in to help boost the box offices for Fast Five and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. Not to mention, he’s open to doing it again for The Expendables if Sylvester Stallone asks).
In G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Johnson plays Roadblock, the Joes’ second-in-command who is forced to step into the lead after the sidelining of Duke (Channing Tatum), the star of G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra. Note: Not a spoiler — it was in last spring’s trailer. In a group press day for Retaliation (read our G.I. Joe: Retaliation review), Johnson talks about his truly great chemistry with Tatum, especially during a scene where they ridicule ...

When your film franchise has gotten tired - the Fast aren't quite as Furious, the Mummy needs a reason to Return - Dwayne Johnson is the guy to call.
The 40-year-old actor has become a saviour of stale film series, injecting new life into Fast Five, The Mummy Returns, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and now G.I. Joe: Retaliation. The former professional wrestler rocks established franchises by joining them on the second or subsequent installment and boosting the property's box office.
Fast & Furious 6 and Journey 3 are on the way, and Johnson's Mummy character got his own spinoff film, The Scorpion King.
"We call him franchise Viagra," said Retaliation director Jon M. Chu. "He comes in and he elevates everything, not just physically, but energy-wise... He was the only one in our minds that could reinvent G.I. Joe and carry the franchise forward."

Los Angeles -- When your film franchise has gotten tired – the Fast aren't quite as Furious, the Mummy needs a reason to Return – Dwayne Johnson is the guy to call.

Ok so he can't act, but there is no soggy blockbuster in the world he can't save by just Rocking up and being himself
Everything about GI Joe: Retaliation points to a flop. The unceremonious kiboshing of its original June 2012 release date in May 2012. The terrible early reviews. The fact that it's a sequel to GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra; a film that needs a sequel like a giraffe needs rollerskates.
But if GI Joe: Retaliation somehow beats the odds and turns out to be in any way successful, it'll be down to one thing and one thing alone: Dwayne Johnson. It's been proved so many times that it barely needs restating, but there isn't a film franchise on Earth that Dwayne Johnson can't improve just by showing up.
The evidence speaks for itself. When Johnson started making films a decade ago, back when he was still called the Rock, »
