Summit Entertainment has revealed this latest trailer for ‘The Legend of Hercules,’ which opens in 3D and 2D on January 10th, 2014 in the US. Directed by Renny Harlin, the film stars Kellan Lutz as Hercules, the mythical Greek hero, demigod and son of Zeus. Betrayed by his King and sold into slavery, Hercules must use his formidable strength to fight for his freedom and return to his true love, Hebe, the Princess of Crete (played by Gaia Weiss). The supporting cast includes Scott Adkins, Liam McIntyre, Liam Garrigan, Johnathon Schaech, Roxanne McKee and Rade Serbedzija.
‘The Legend of Hercules’ is one of two high-profile Hercules movies being made by Hollywood studios, the second being an MGM/Paramount co-production to be directed by Brett Ratner. Dwayne Johnson is playing the titular hero in the rival project. The Dwayne Johnson-starring Hercules movie is slated for release in August 2014.
Heat Vision are reporting that up-and-coming Australian actress Courtney Eaton has nabbed the female lead in Summit’s epic fantasy ‘Gods of Egypt.’ Gerard Butler, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Brenton Thwaites and Geoffrey Rush also star. The film is set in ancient Egypt against the legendary world of great pyramids and sphinxes. Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister in ‘Game of Thrones,’ is set to play Horus, the god of the sky, who teams up with a human thief (Thwaites) and Hathor, the goddess of love, on a magical quest to avenge the death of his father, Osiris. Butler would play Set, the Egpyptian God of the desert, storms, and foreigners. The story is set in motion when Set kills Osiris. Rush will play the sun god Ra, the father of Set and Osiris who is also Set’s ultimate target. Eaton will play a slave girl whom the thief falls for.
Courtney Eaton’s fellow Australian Alex Proyas is directing the project. Proyas wrote the script with Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless. Eaton only has one acting credit so far: ‘Mad Max: Fury Road,’ a movie that isn’t due to be released until May 2015. Eaton was discovered by a local modeling scout in her hometown of Perth. When Fury Road began casting a wide net for actresses, producers reached out to modeling agencies in the country. Eaton had no acting experience but the tape she made got her an audition with director George Miller. Following several screen tests to win over studio execs, she nabbed a role opposite Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron.
Centering on the film’s title characters, Warner Bros. Pictures has revealed this final poster for ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.’ The film continues the events of ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,’ in which the hobbit Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) travels with the wizard Gandalf the Grey (Ian McKellen) and a company of thirteen dwarves led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) into the Kingdom of Erebor, taking them through Mirkwood, Esgaroth, and Dale to combat with the dragon Smaug (Benedict Cumbebratch).
‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ stars Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Evangeline Lilly, John Bell, Jed Brophy, Adam Brown, John Callen, Benedict Cumberbatch, Luke Evans, Stephen Fry, Ryan Gage, Mark Hadlow, Peter Hambleton, Stephen Hunter, William Kircher, Sylvester McCoy, Graham McTavish, Michael Mizrahi, James Nesbitt, Dean O’Gorman, Lee Pace, Mikael Persbrandt, Ken Stott and Aidan Turner.
The rather awesome ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ viral website, The Daily Bugle, has been updated with a new post “written” by Eddie Brock (aka Venom), that features a few references to Spider-Man lore, including naming the three founding members of “The Enforcers” as well as the Manfredi crime family. Check it out after the jump.
The recently released ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ trailer reveals and hints a lot if you’re familiar with the Spider-Man universe – in particular with the Sinister Six and the dealings/ulterior motives of OsCorp. One of the most interesting things about the trailer for me was the shot of Vulture’s wings and Doctor Octopus’ tentacles (it has long been speculated that Colm Feore would be playing Vulture, although there’s no confirmation at this moment in time). That shot could of course be an easter egg for further ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ installments.

Euclase has put together these fantastic digital portraits for ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.’ The film arrives in cinemas on December 13th while ’The Hobbit: There and Back Again’ concludes the trilogy on December 17th, 2014. ’The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ is the second installment of a three-part series based on J. R. R. Tolkien’s 1937 novel ‘The Hobbit,’ beginning with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.’ The three films together act as prequels to Peter Jackson’s ‘The Lord of the Rings’ film trilogy.

A fictional film set in the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock the United States, ‘American Hustle’ tells the story of brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that’s as dangerous as it is enchanting. Jeremy Renner is Carmine Polito, the passionate, volatile, New Jersey political operator caught between the con-artists and Feds. Irving’s unpredictable wife Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence) could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, ‘American Hustle’ defies genre, hinging on raw emotion, and life and death stakes. The film opens in New York and Los Angeles on December 13th before going wide on December 18th in the US. American Hustle’ is set for January 1st in the UK.
There’s a lot to your character in ‘American Hustle.’ For me, Irving Rosenfeld is a hustler and a romantic, and there’s a lot of comedy, charm, and vulnerability to him. I also liked how he admired his father as an honest man, but at the same time he’s determined to not allow that same fate to happen to him….
Christian Bale: Yeah. There was something that David and I found to be strangely optimistic about Irv. And the fact that he really was a man who just said, “Look, I’ve been born into a situation, but it’s not the situation I want. Why should I accept that? Am I just going to sit back my whole life and say, “Yeah, I was born this way, and I’m not trying to change it.” No, I’m gonna change it and I’m going to create myself.” It’s a little bit Pygmalion like. He says, “No, I’m not happy – and why should I be?” I’m going to become somebody who has a more exciting life and who has a more romantic life.” He wants to be someone who has something to really live for, and someone who wants to do stuff that exhilarates him – and who doesn’t want that? Everyone does. Just the difference is in search of this bigger truth that Irv is after; he’s willing to tell as many lies as he has to in order to get there.
