    Sam Worthington To Co-Produce & Possibly Star In Miniseries About Battle Of Gallipoli

    Sam Worthington has kinda fallen off the map after breaking out in "Avatar," with a few indies ("The Debt," "Man On A Ledge") and the whole 'Clash Of The Titans' thing not exactly raising his profile -- though the latter probably bought him a new house or two. H...

    Cannes Market: Wachowskis' 'Cloud Atlas' Screens for Buyers; Butler, Worthington and McConaughey Get Funded for 'Thunder Run'

    As the major studios focus on big-budget FX and brand-name tentpoles, and micro-indies spread like kudzu, the middle ranks of movies are being funded and produced outside the studio system. This is good and bad. 'Cloud Atlas' screened Tuesday at Cannes.

    First Look At Sam Worthington & Xavier Samuel In Australian Surfing Action-Drama 'Drift'

    The surfing world hasn't seen much love since Kathryn Bigelow's "Point Break," with most pics since then merely excuses to get good-looking actors in swimsuits. There does seem to be one film on the horizon that aims to be different though, the surfing-based action-drama "Drif...

    Wrath Of The Titans—movie review

    I remember feeling a certain amount of wrath over the ham-handed 3-D effects in 2010’s 'Clash of the Titans', but the film itself wasn’t bad: uneven, to be sure, but strengthened by adhering to the story template of the 1981 movie of the same name, written by Beverley Cross. If I were 12 years old I...

    Review: 'Wrath Of The Titans' A Barely Memorable, Lifeless Sequel

    So a couple of years ago, they remade “Clash Of The Titans.” Do you remember that? No? Well, it was pretty successful. Box Office Mojo says it made about $500 million. There were some special effects. It was in 3D. Gods, monsters, that sort of thing. Seems like a can’t miss thing. Apparently Danny H...

    Universal Revives ‘Dracula Year Zero’ Without Sam Worthington & Alex Proyas; Gary Shore To Direct

    With movie projects dying out left and right, it only makes sense that some aborted ideas would be resurrected. Hence, "Dracula Year Zero," a dopily titled period piece about Prince Vlad, the noble-but-doomed hero who later became known as Vlad the Impaler, and later Blacula Dracula. Originally, Sam...

    Weekend Box Office: 'The Grey' Sees Green, While Audiences Stay Away From The 'Ledge'

    Good ole’ dependable Liam Neeson. This is the third straight early-year period where the character actor turned badass leading man has scored a number one hit. While “The Grey” couldn’t pull in the same numbers as “Taken” or “Unknown,” it did top $20 m...

    Sam Worthington Reveals Why He Chose 'Man On A Ledge' & Says Early FX Footage Of 'Thunder Run' Looks "Spectacular"

    It’s hard to believe that a little more than two years ago, Sam Worthington was a virtual unknown in Hollywood. Although the actor established a comfortable career for himself in his native Australia, until “Avatar” and “Clash of the Titans” came out, he was best known ...

    Man On A Ledge—movie review

    Try this on for size: an ex-cop who wants to prove he was innocent of a crime that sent him “up the river” for 25 years decides that the best way to do so is to step out onto the ledge of a midtown Manhattan hotel—and create a distraction for an even wilder scheme he’s trying...
