Vin Diesel continues to roll out photos from the set of Fast & Furious 7.  After yesterday’s photo featuring Jason Statham, Diesel has now provided an image with Dwayne Johnson, who plays the badass Hobbs.  I’m interested to see where Hobbes goes in the sequel considering his betrayal in Fast & Furious 6.  A friend of mine pointed out that Hobbs never would have done that, but he did and now the character will have to face those consequences.

Hit the jump to check out the image.  The film also stars Paul Walker, Tony Jaa, Tyrese Gibson, Kurt Russell, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, Nathalie Emmanuel, Djimon Hounsou, Lucas Black, and John BrothertonFast & Furious 7 opens July 11, 2014. [Warning: Photo contains minor spoilers.]

First Images of Dwayne Johnson in FAST & FURIOUS 7 and HERCULES

Dwayne Johnson‘s movies seem to do well when he’s part of an ensemble (Fast & Furious movies, G.I. Joe: Retaliation) and less well when it’s all on him (Snitch, Faster).  Either way, he’s still a charismatic presence, and we’ll see him in both kinds of films next year with James Wan‘s Fast & Furious 7 and Brett Ratner‘s Hercules.  Plot details on Fast 7 are being kept under wraps beyond the gang squaring off against a new villain played by Jason Statham.  As for Hercules, the movie is billed as “a revisionist take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist.”  Johnson has been tweeting out set photos from Hercules, but now he’s given us our first good look at him in the movie.  Also, as a sweetener, he’s tweeted out the first image of Hobbes in Fast 7.  Or maybe I have them mixed up and both films are going in wildly unexpected directions.

Dwayne Johnson has landed a starring role in New Line’s earthquake disaster flick, San Andreas.  The picture will be directed by Brad Peyton, who previously worked with Johnson in Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.  Originally scripted by Andre Fabrizio and Jeremy Passmore, with Chad and Carey Hayes currently penning the rewrite, San Andreas follows the devastation after a California earthquake and sees a man (Johnson) embarking on a dangerous trip to rescue his estranged daughter.  The character, as described by Heat Vision, is a “rugged rescue helicopter pilot”.  Since Johnson is officially on board, New Line has set April as a start date for production with a planned release in 2015.  Johnson is currently filming James Wan’s Fast & Furious 7, after having just wrapped on Brett Ratner’s Hercules: The Thracian Wars.

G.I. JOE: RETALIATION Blu-ray Review

by     Posted 218 days ago

g-i-joe-retaliation-dwayne-johnson-slice

Large explosions, death-defying aerobatics, flashing gunfire, and buff people talking about stuff in dramatic fashion. G.I. Joe: Retaliation gives audiences exactly what they’re expecting—nothing more, and nothing less—which can be a good thing.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation picks up where the first movie left off, with Duke (played by Channing Tatum) leading the elite fighting force in a number of missions against their hated foe, COBRA. While celebrating some much deserved downtime, the Joes are attacked by a squadron of COBRA helicopters and ground units, and are killed almost to a man, save for a few survivors. On the verge of eradication and marked as terrorists by their government, the Joes must uncover the face of their attackers and once again save the world’s governments from being overtaken by the diabolical Cobra Commander.  Hit the jump for my full review of G.I. Joe: Retaliation on Blu-ray.

Dwayne Johnson is THE FALL GUY for Director McG

by     Posted 231 days ago

dwayne-johnson-slice

The adaptation of 1980s TV series The Fall Guy has been in development for a while, but what better actor to land to give the project a shot in the arm than Dwayne Johnson (Fast & Furious 6).  Starring Lee MajorsThe Fall Guy centered on a stuntman who moonlighted as a bounty hunter when work was slow.  Just as Johnson is reported as being in negotiations to step into Majors’ shoes, McG (We Are Marshall) is also in talks to direct.  If deals were to close, casting would likely look to the roles of a sidekick cousin and a fetching female stunt actress, played by Douglas Barr and Heather Thomas in the original series, respectively.  That is, if the big-screen version were to follow in the footsteps of the ABC series; no plot details are available just yet.  Hit the jump for more, including a look at the show’s intro that features shots of 1980s Hollywood (and a vintage beauty in Thomas). 

Dwayne Johnson Shares Battle Scars, Claw and Bite Marks in New HERCULES: THE THRACIAN WARS Image

Dwayne Johnson (Fast & Furious Six) has been tweeting out a lot of behind-the-scenes images and video from the set of Brett Ratner’s Hercules: The Thracian Wars.  And I mean a lot. Today is no different as Johnson reveals a frame from his four-hour daily make-up routine, complete with battle scars that suggest he’s been involved in a few skirmishes (perhaps a particularly laborious one against a lion of legend?).  The heroic look certainly lends itself to the film’s approach of a more realistic retelling of the mythological monster-slayer.

David Green Replaces Barry Sonnenfeld as Director of LORE Starring Dwayne Johnson

The feature adaptation of Lore, a comic book from husband-and-wife team Ashley Wood and T.P. Louise, was first announced three years ago with Cory Goodman (Priest) and Jeremy Lott on board to write the script.  Warner Bros. picked up the screenplay and attached Dwayne Johsnon (pending scheduling) in 2012.  Since the producers are said to want a Men in Black-style franchise, they reached out to Men in Black director Barry Sonnenfeld this time last year.  Sonnenfeld and the studio reportedly could not agree on a budget, so Sonnenfeld will step down as director, but remain involved as executive producer.

WB has found a replacement in a director who will likely be more agreeable: David Green.  More after the jump.

It seems like Dwayne Johnson is having a blast on the set of Brett Ratner’s Hercules: The Thracian Wars.  He’s already tweeted out a number of behind-the-scenes images and one cheeky set video.  Today, we get a look at the massive set itself.  It’s encouraging to see that a film that touts itself as being more grounded in reality has a massive practical stage on which to work.

Dwayne Johnson (Fast Five) is being sure to include his millions of fans in the filming process of Brett Ratner’s Hercules: The Thracian Wars.  He’s already tweeted out a few behind-the-scenes images, which you can view here, here and here.  While this movie version of the mythological hero takes a grounded approach and features a world without superpowers, Johnson’s about as close to a demigod as we mortals can get; this new set video shows he’s also got a nasty pinch.

Dwayne Johnson Teases New Image from the Set of HERCULES

Dwayne Johnson has shared another new image from the set of director Brett Ratner’s Hercules.  The film provides a fresh perspective on the familiar story and is described as “a revisionist take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist.”  This latest image shows Johnson in full costume brandishing a rather brutal-looking weapon, and given his strength one can only imagine the kind of damage it will do.

While there are plenty of legitimate complaints to be raised about the advent of “the Twitter age,” the social media service has offered some neat looks into the filmmaking world.  Everyone from Marc Webb to Bryan Singer has used Twitter as a tool to offer fans a look behind-the-scenes at their latest films, and Dwayne Johnson has been doing the same when it comes to his passion project Hercules.  Directed by Brett Ratner, the film is described as “a revisionist take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist.”  We’ve already seen a couple of teases of Johnson in costume, and now the actor has offered a few more looks at the set, including an impressive shot of the Thracian soldiers.

SNITCH Blu-ray Review

by     Posted 279 days ago

snitch-michael-k-williams-dwayne-johnson-slice

Dwayne “The Rock Johnson is a movie star now.  For much of the year, he’s been in movie after movie (so far four), and most of them have been hits, on top of having a TV show and his wrestling appearances.  It took a while (films like The Rundown and Walking Tall didn’t do that well), but now he’s one of the biggest names in cinema.  But something like Snitch shows that he’s an appealing presence on screen, but he can only lift material so far.  A thoroughly mediocre film, Snitch will make for good cable viewing.  My review of the Blu-ray of Snitch follows after the jump. 

New Set Photo from Brett Ratner’s HERCULES Starring Dwayne Johnson

Last month, Dwayne Johnson tweeted an image of his makeup process for Brett Ratner‘s Hercules.  Johnson stars as the titular demigod, and the movie is billed as “a revisionist take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist.” (Because demigods apparently don’t qualify as “supernatural”)  Johnson how now tweeted another photo from the set saying, “Our HERCULES set created by award winning designer Jean-Vincent Puzos w/ great detail. I sit in awe.”  Perhaps the black-and-white photo doesn’t quite convey the awe, because from it looks like a standard sword-and-sandals design.  I suppose that’s what you get when you have a “grounded world”.

Hit the jump to check out the set photo.  The film also stars Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, John Hurt, Rebecca Ferguson, Ingrid Bolso Berdal, Askel Hennie, and Reece RitchieHercules opens on July 25, 2014.

Things have been heating up for the fifth installment of the Terminator franchise lately, with Paramount recently entering talks to distribute the Annapurna Pictures/Skydance film and Arnold Schwarzenegger confirming that he’ll be returning with shooting set to begin in January.  Now a pretty wild rumor is circulating that Dwayne Johnson—the go-to guy when your franchise needs a boost—is being eyed to star in the film alongside Schwarzenegger.  Hit the jump for more, including a possible 1940s setting (what?) for the sequel.
