New Hercules Trailer Punches A Lion In Slow-Motion

The first Hercules trailer for Dwayne Johnson's epic action flick looked alright, but the second trailer appears to be (slightly) more self-aware. Crackin' jokes, fighting slo-mo lions and hydras and mugging for the camera — this is the demigod we want. » 6/03/14 6:30am 6/03/14 6:30am

The Rock's Hercules movie may be a gift from the gods

But which ones? On the one hand, we have this first great picture of Dwayne Johnson as the Greek demigod himself, shrouded in the skin of the Nemean lion, looking like the son of Zeus stepped down from Mount Olympus itself.

New G.I. Joe: Retaliation trailer pistol-whips the rest of summer's…

Holy crap, does G.I. Joe: Retaliation look like the kind of movie that requires you to sneak a bottle of rye into the theater and scream at the screen at the top of your lungs. (That's a good thing!) So many quips, so many guns, and all sorts of ridiculous high-tech gadgetry. This is the G.I. Joe movie we deserve. … » 4/24/12 6:00am 4/24/12 6:00am

If Journey 2 is a hit, then who should star in Journey 3?

Journey to the Center of the Earth starred a ridiculously game Brendan Fraser, who mugged his way through a series of computer-generated situations in 3D. Now the second movie, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, stars an equally "why the hell not" Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Plus an "as long as I get paid" Michael Caine. » 1/23/12 2:56pm 1/23/12 2:56pm

What is Michael Caine thinking in this Journey 2 character poster?

Or more to the point, what is Michael Caine about to say to his agent once he gets home from doing this fiasco? Some new character posters for Journey 2, the sequel that absolutely nobody demanded, have come out. And they're like the posters from the waiting room to Photoshop Hell. I especially like the look on The… » 12/01/11 4:06pm 12/01/11 4:06pm

The Rock invades Jules Verne's Mysterious Island with tiny elephants…

Journey to the Center of the Earth's sequel is minus one Brendan Fraser but plus one Dwayne Johnson.
