Paramount Pictures has set loose this latest clip from the Dwayne Johnson-led ‘Hercules.’ Directed by Brett Ratner, ‘Hercules’ will be distributed worldwide on July 25th and co-stars the likes of Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, John Hurt, Aksel Hennie, Rebecca Ferguson, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal and Reece Ritchie. Based on the graphic novel “Hercules: The Thracian Wars,” the film is a revisionist take on the classic myth. I’m posting a bunch of interviews for ‘Hercules’ later this week, so stay tuned.
New Trailer For ‘Hector And The Search For Happiness’ – Starring Simon Pegg, Rosamund Pike, Christopher Plummer…
This new US trailer has arrived online for ‘Hector and the Search for Happiness,’ the upcoming comedy/drama based on François Lelord’s novel of the same name.

Peter Chisholm directs.
In the film, Simon Pegg plays Hector, an eccentric yet irresistible London psychiatrist in crisis: his patients are just not getting any happier. He’s going nowhere. Then one day, armed with buckets of courage and an almost child-like curiosity, Hector breaks out of his sheltered vacuum of a life into a global quest to find out if happiness exists. More importantly, if it exists for Hector. And so begins a colorful, exotic, dangerous and hysterical journey.

In Luc Besson’s action-thriller ‘Lucy,’ Scarlett Johansson stars as the title character, a young woman who is forced to become a drug mule and is subsequently transformed into an ass-kicking machine when a highly-specialized drug enters her system. As Lucy races against the clock to survive, her new abilities allow her to see into the future, absorb information instantaneously, move objects with her mind and disregard pain and other emotions. Set for July 25th in the US and August 22nd in the UK, the likes of Morgan Freeman, Choi Min-sik and Analeigh Tipton co-star.
In the film, Lucy goes from the extremes of being extremely vulnerable to super-powered, when her exposure to an illicit substance inadvertently makes her acquire incredible skills. What was it like playing those opposites and the continual evolution…?
Scarlett Johansson: I really enjoyed that. Lucy, in my mind when we meet her, is just a girl who’s living in Taipei – who’s maybe doing a bit of modeling and odd jobs here and there. She’s a student and she’s been away from home for six months and she’s in a transient phase in her life when we find her. She’s kind of figuring out who she is, and she’s feeling like she should probably get her life on track. That’s kind of all we know about her when we find her. She’s kind of an unremarkable person to be honest (laughs).
Amy Ryan, Alan Alda, Billy Magnussen & Eve Hewson Join Steven Spielberg’s Tom Hanks-Starring Spy Thriller
Amy Ryan, Alan Alda, Billy Magnussen and Eve Hewson have reportedly joined Steven Spielberg’s next film, an Untitled Cold War Spy Thriller which has been penciled in for an October 16th, 2015 bow. Tom Hanks is leading Spielberg’s spy thriller, which was written by the Coen brothers, based on an original script by Matt Charman.
The film is based on the true story of James Donovan, who Tom Hanks will portray. Donovan was the American attorney enlisted by the CIA during the Cold War to surreptitiously negotiate the 1962 release of Francis Gary Powers, the U-2 spy plane pilot who was shot down over Russia two years earlier. Amy Ryan will play Hanks’ wife and Eve Hewson will play Jan Donovan, Hanks’ daughter who ends up falling for his young law associate.
