In 2012, the copycat movie battle unfolded between two related Brothers Grimm fairy tale retellings, Mirror Mirror and Snow White and the Huntsman; this year, it was a duel of patriotic Die Hard-inspired thrillers with Olympus Has Fallen and White House Down, and in 2014, Kellan Lutz – who takes on the headlining status in this upcoming January’s The Legend of Hercules – hopes to win the showdown against his bigger and more experienced opponent, Dwayne Johnson (whose own Hercules movie arrives that following summer).
So, what’s on the docket for 2015? Well, Walt Disney Pictures has already set a date that October for a new live-action version of Click to continue reading WB’s ‘Jungle Book’ Movie Has Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu Circling as Director

Top 10 Duncan Bowles 4 Dec 2013 - 06:45
Duncan salutes his personal choice of the 2013 action movies that deserved just a little more love...
This article contains spoilers for each of the films mentioned. Not necessarily big ones, but you might want to steer clear of The World's End entry if you've not seen that.
2013 has been a great year for action. We’ve had multiple comic book heroes fighting it out on the big screen, with Thor and Iron Man continuing Marvel’s run of great movies, the return of the R-rated antics of Kick-Ass and at long last an F-bomb loaded, bloody incarnation of The Wolverine (though it’s worth pointing out that the unrated edition in the UK only comes with the 3D version of the home release, a trend I hope doesn’t continue).
From a sci-fi angle, we’ve had robots fighting monsters in Pacific Rim and »

This is where we start a war. We'll lose friends, and cause controversy. Because somewhere on this list below is something you're dying to see. In fact, you might be fanatical about some of these inclusions (Christopher Nolan fans, we're staring straight at you). But it's inevitable. And unavoidable. Hollywood is releasing hundreds of movies in 2014. Some of them will be good. Some of them will be bad. And some will be box office disasters. In compiling this list, we're not declaring that all, or even any, of these movies will be unwatchable. Some will be quite good. Maybe even a masterpiece or a classic in the making. There are a few that we're desperate to see ourselves. We really want them to succeed. But every movie here is a risk taker. And some of this shit? Hollywood should clearly know better. These are the 14 Biggest Potential Bombs of 2014.

This year saw two films attempt to take down the White House, with the most recent being disaster master Roland Emmerich's White House Down. Although he famously destroyed the entire Presidential residence in one blow in 1996's Independence Day, Emmerich treats the title structure with much more reverence and care this time around. (Don't worry, he still beats the hell out of it.) Equally bloodied and bruised are White House Down's heroic duo, played by Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx, who must take down the threat inside the Oval Office while rescuing the hostages trapped inside. It's one of Emmerich's most entertaining films to date, and now that it's available on Blu-ray, you can check it out for yourself in your very own home. Hit the jump for my review. Feature Although Emmerich may be best known for obliterating the White House, he takes his time doing so in White House Down. »

If you've been keeping track of Sony's upcoming superhero sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2, then you'll know that Andrew Garfield's wall-crawler is going to have his hands full when he returns for the second instalment of the rebooted series as the studio looks to expand its Spider-Man universe by introducing a host of villains. Jamie Foxx (White House Down) and Paul Giamatti (Saving Mr. Banks) are confirmed to play Electro and The Rhino respectively, while there's also talk of the likes of The Vulture, Black Cat and even Carnage making an appearance. And that's before we get to Peter Parker's arch-nemesis, with American Beauty star Chris Cooper set to portray Norman Osborn, whose comic book alter-ego is of course the Green Goblin. Cooper has been talking to MTV about his role in the sequel, reiterating that he'll be taking more of a back seat before rising to prominence in »

Amazon's week long deals for 2013 Black Friday and Cyber Monday continue today, Wednesday, November 27, with a new schedule of DVDs and Blu-rays going on sale today and they are starting early. The deals throughout the day begin just after midnight today and there are a few titles worthy of your attention. If I had to select one title from the batch of deals going live today it would certainly be the Planet of the Apes Blu-ray collection, beyond that the Schindler's List Blu-ray is worth considering and, if you're looking for a nice little quadruple feature you can't really go wrong with picking up the Atonement, Pride & Prejudice, Jane Eyre and Elizabeth bundle, the price isn't yet available, but I have to assume it won't break the bank. Finally, that Best of Warner Bros. Romance Collection at 12:20 Pm might be worth a look as it includes some greats such »

The Hollywood recycling machine is at it again, cranking out two strikingly similar movies from one seemingly novel concept. This time around, mythological Greek hero Hercules is the ostensibly lucky character receiving two blockbuster updates within a few months of each other. While we have yet to see a trailer for Hercules: The Thracian Wars, which stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson of Fast Five fame, a new preview for the Kellan Lutz-starring Hercules: The Legend Begins hit the web today.
As directed by Renny Harlin (Die Hard 2, Cliffhanger), Hercules: The Legend Begins charts the origins of Hercules, though unfortunately you wouldn’t know it from the preview. The clip, which you can check out below, makes the fatal flaw of attempting to cram its entire plot into just over two minutes of footage:
The movie’s influences are pretty obvious from the get-go; Harlin’s take resembles a »

This happens every couple of years, two movies are released which share pretty much the same story. We've had Armageddon and Deep Impact before, and most recently Olympus has Fallen and White House Down. Now it's the legend of Hercules' turn with The Rock flexing his considerable muscles in the role for Hercules (sometimes known to have the subtitle The Thracian Wars) in the summer of 2014, and this film, Hercules: The Legend Continues, which beats it by six months, coming out in January (in the U.S., august on this side of the pond). Kellan Lutz (Twilight) plays the demi-god who must reunite with his true love after being sold into slavery. Director Renny Harlin (Cliffhanger, Deep Blue Sea) is definitely going for a 300/Gladiator vibe, but it'll be interesting to see how this fares against a charismatic, giant box office guarantee like Dwayne Johnson. Seriously, even if the movies aren't that good, »

We'd previously heard from director Marc Webb that the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 would be attached to the theatrical release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug on December 13th, but it's now been revealed via Sony's Spider-Man Facebook page that we'll actually be getting it slightly earlier, with the trailer now set to hit on December 5th.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 sees Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker / Spider-Man), Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy) and Sally Field (Aunt May) returning to the cast alongside franchise newcomers Jamie Foxx (White House Down) as Electro, Paul Giamatti (Saving Mr. Banks) as The Rhino, Dane DeHaan (Chronicle) as Harry Osborn, Chris Cooper (The Muppets) as Norman Osborn and Colm Feore (Thor), Felicity Jones (Like Crazy), Sarah Gadon (Cosmopolis) and B.J. Novak (The Office) in as-yet-unrevealed roles.

Hercules: The Legend Begins and Hercules: The Thracian Wars are this year's White House Down and Olympus Has Fallen. It happens all the time. Two similar movies competing for your attention at the box office within months of each other. History dictates that the first movie released is usually the breadwinner. White House Down, released June 28, earned $24.8 million on its opening weekend, going onto make $73.1 million in the U.S. and $205.3 million worldwide. Olympus Has Fallen, released three months earlier on March 22, proves the 'first earns more' notion, as it pulled in $30.3 million opening weekend, eventually earning $98.9 million at the domestic box office. It was the clear winner on American soil (globally, it only made $161). This year's two battling Hercules movies 'might' be the exception, unless folks get confused by all the early self-promotion The Rock has done for The Thracian Wars, thinking its Hercules: The Legend Begins instead.

The girl on fire is still burning bright! Lionsgate’s hotly anticipated sequel The Hunger Games: Catching Fire trounced the competition over its first weekend at the box office, pulling in an estimated $161.1 million. That gross handily beats the $152.5 million opening of The Hunger Games, which opened in March 2012, and it stands as the best November debut of all time ahead of The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which bowed with $142.9 million in 2009.
Only three films have ever opened higher than Catching Fire: The Avengers ($207.4 million), Iron Man 3 ($174.1 million), and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 ($169.2 million). Many prognosticators »
