    Check Out The DeviantArt Drawing That Dwayne Johnson Is Turning Into A Movie

    If there’s anything we can learn from observing Hollywood these past few years, it’s that they will look anywhere for ideas. In the past, it was comic books, video games, action figures, board games, or theme park attractions that inspired the Hollywood blockbusters. Now it appears as if...

    I Believe In Fitness: Michael Bay Is Back With First Trailer For 'Pain And Gain' With Mark Wahlberg & Dwayne Johnson

    After three straight "Transformers" movies, we kind of forgot that Michael Bay movies used to be fun. Testosterone fueled fun, sure, but fun nonetheless. But he's taken a break from making robots go boom to make his "indie" movie, and goddamn, if this trailer for "Pain And Gain" isn't a steroid boos...

    In case Eugene Jarecki's recent documentary "The House I Live In" didn't get the message across: the war on drugs isn't working and is penalizing people with dranconian laws that do nothing to stop the trafficking and use of narcotics. But the war on drugs hasn't met the li...

    Ah, Brett Ratner. The much-beloved filmmaker behind such fondly remembered classics as "Rush Hour," "Rush Hour 2" and "Rush Hour 3" is so popular among the film blogging community that every one of his new projects is greeted with a collective 'huzzah!' on the Internet.

    First Official Images Arrive Of Vin Diesel, Paul Walker & Dwayne Johnson In 'Fast & Furious 6'

    It's virtually unheard of for a series to peak with its fifth installment, but by quite some distance, 2011's "Fast Five" turned out to be the most entertaining of the illegal-road-race franchise (which now has very little to do with road racing). Director Justin Lin, in his third film of the series...

    With "The Expendables" and "Red" bringing the old people B-movie thing back into vogue, and while those films wink at '80s action movie conventions, "Dan Mintner: Badass For Hire" drives a truck through them. And who better to get on board than Dwayne "The Rock...

    First Pics From Dito Montiel's Heist Flick 'Empire State' Starring Liam Hemsworth & Dwayne Johnson

    Well, if Dito Montiel is an example of anything, it's of that famous old saying: when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. It was about a year and a half ago that the director endured savage reviews at Sundance for "The Son Of No One," his procedural starring a promising cast of C...

    Watch: International Trailer For 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' Still Kinda Dumb, But It Does Have Ninjas

    While "Battleship" will probably still be the dumbest movie of the summer by a country mile (though with $129 million in the bank already thanks to international ticket sales, it's Universal who's laughing last), "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" could be coming in at close second.
