Two new clips from Brett Ratner’s Hercules

24 July 2014 7:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Brett Ratner’s (X-Men: The Last Stand) comic book adaptation Hercules arrives in North American theaters tomorrow, and ahead of its release, we’ve got a couple of new clips for you below (and don’t forget to check out our review here)…

Everyone knows the legend of Hercules and his twelve labors. Our story begins after the labors, and after the legend… Haunted by a sin from his past, Hercules has become a mercenary. Along with five faithful companions, he travels ancient Greece selling his services for gold and using his legendary reputation to intimidate enemies. But when the benevolent ruler of Thrace and his daughter seek Hercules’ help to defeat a savage and terrifying warlord, Hercules finds that in order for good to triumph and justice to prevail… he must again become the hero he once was… he must embrace his own myth… he must be Hercules.

Hercules movie review: he fights the lion!

23 July 2014 7:11 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Grading on the Ratner Curve, this is a positive triumph. The cheesy clichés are at least passingly entertaining. You could do worse. I’m “biast” (pro): love Dwayne Johnson

I’m “biast” (con): hate Brett Ratner

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

You think you know the truth about him? You know nothing!” This from the very shouty narrator who opens Hercules for us, presumably in case you saw the hilariously awful The Legend of Hercules earlier this year and were suckered into believing that Kellan Lutz is a demigod. What’s sort of funny and sort of the best thing about this second attempt in a few months to pass off a superhero of the ancient world as one for the 21st century is that the shouty narrator turns out to be Herc’s publicist, and that »

‘Dracula Untold’: Dominic Cooper Promises A Dark Vampire Origin Story

16 July 2014 9:46 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

In addition to a fan-favorite turn (with possible returns in the future) as Marvel’s Howard Stark, father to Iron Man, Tony Stark, Dominic Cooper has been seen in several high-profile franchise films in the last few years – with more already scheduled. Most recently, the actor served as antagonist to the racing game movie, Need for Speed – only to sign on for a role in the highly anticipated World of Warcraft adaptation (set to hit theaters in 2016). Last year, the actor played supporting Vampire hunter Henry Sturges in the genre-bending novel adaptation Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter – one of the bright spots in a film that fell short of finding the same success as its ...

Go Behind the Scenes with New Dracula Untold Stills

16 July 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

Universal's 'Dracula Untold' hits theatres this October with Brit star Luke Evans taking over the legendary role. The studio have revealed a small batch of new stills including a couple of behind the scenes snaps that feature Evans and director Gary Shore. Along with the previously released trailer I can't honestly say I'm sold on this project. I'll admit that vampirism is by far my least enjoyed sub-genre and from all the teasers and assets unleashed on us so far I'm not exactly blown away. Let's hope things can change in the next months leading up to its October premiere. 'Dracula Untold' also stars Sarah Gadon ('The Amazing Spider-Man 2'), Dominic Cooper ('Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter'), Zach McGowan, Thor Kristjansson, Art Parkinson, and Samantha Barks ('Les Miserables').

First Impressions – Hercules (2014)

2 July 2014 8:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen with some thoughts on Hercules after seeing some sneak-peak footage…

The words “directed by Brett Ratner” do not inspire a lot of confidence in movie lovers. Many have argued that the success of the Rush Hour movies was down to Jackie Chan “directing” them and he will always be remembered as the man who ruined the X-Men franchise with X-Men: The Last Stand. But based on the footage seen for his latest blockbuster Hercules starring Dwayne Johnson, he looks like he might be onto a winner.

New TV spot for Brett Ratner’s Hercules

27 June 2014 1:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re about a month away from Brett Ratner and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s take on the classic Greek hero Hercules, for better or worse. We’ve seen a full length trailer, but now have a new TV spot to share, which warns that man cannot escape his fate.

Johnson stars as Hercules, after the mythological events we know and love, when he’s forced to become a mercenary and travel across Greece, selling his services and legendary reputation for gold. But, when new threats arise, he must become the hero he once was and embrace his own myth.

Check out the new TV spot, which is packed with new footage and plenty of action, below the official synopsis…

The Academy Invites 271 New Members for 2014

26 June 2014 12:44 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Academy has announced the new class of invited members for 2014 and, as is typical, many of which are among last year's nominees, which includes Barkhad Abdi, Michael Fassbender, Sally Hawkins, Mads Mikkelsen, Lupita Nyong'o and June Squibb in the Actors branch not to mention curious additions such as Josh Hutcherson, Rob Riggle and Jason Statham, but, okay. The Directors branch adds Jay and Mark Duplass along with Jean-Marc Vallee, Denis Villeneuve and Thomas Vinterberg. I didn't do an immediate tally of male to female additions or other demographics, but at first glance it seems to be a wide spread batch of new additions on all fronts. The Academy is also clearly attempting to aggressively bump up the demographics as this is the second year in a row where they have added a large number of new members, well over the average of 133 new members from 2004 to 2012.

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong'o among 271 Academy invitees

26 June 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong’o of 12 Years a Slave were two of the 271 artists and industry leaders invited to become members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which determines nominations and winners at the annual Oscars. The entire list of Academy membership—which numbers about 6,000—isn’t public information so the annual invitation list is often the best indication of the artists involved in the prestigious awards process. It’s worth noting that invitations need to be accepted in order for artists to become members; some artists, like two-time Best Actor winner Sean Penn, have declined membership over the years. »

Josh Hutcherson, Lupita Nyong'o, Pharrell and 268 others invited to join the Academy

26 June 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Pop quiz: What do Chris Rock, Claire Denis, Eddie Vedder and Josh Hutcherson all have in common? Answer: They could all be Oscar voters very soon. The annual Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences invitation list always makes for interesting reading, shedding light on just how large and far-reaching the group's membership is -- or could be, depending on who accepts their invitations. This year, 271 individuals have been asked to join AMPAS, meaning every one of them could contribute to next year's Academy Awards balloting -- and it's as diverse a list as they've ever assembled. Think the Academy consists entirely of fusty retired white dudes? Not if recent Best Original Song nominee Pharrell Williams takes them up on their offer. Think it's all just a Hollywood insiders' game? Not if French arthouse titans Chantal Akerman and Olivier Assayas join the party. It's a list that subverts expectation at every turn. »
