New Movies This Week: HERCULES, LUCY

New Movies This Week: HERCULES, LUCY

It's the week of one word titled new movies, where Dwayne Johnson and Scarlett Johansson lead the way into theaters with new movies.  Check out the quick list and my preview take on the movies. (For what it's worth!)

Opening This Week - July 25

Hercules, starring Dwayne Johnson
Hercules

Rated: PG-13 98 min

Having endured his legendary twelve labors, Hercules, the Greek demigod, has his life as a sword-for-hire tested when the King of Thrace and his daughter seek his aid in defeating a tyrannical warlord.

Stars: Dwayne Johnson, John Hurt, Ian McShane, Joseph Fiennes

My thoughts: At first I was all about Johnson playing the legendary strong man, but then I caught some previews that were hack full of 3D gimmick scenes of things coming at the viewer. For some reason, I thought that crap went away a long time ago.

Because of that, I've put this on the back burner until it becomes a rental, a pay channel focus or it lands on FX of TNT or some such channel that doubles the length of the movie with loud commercials.



-

LUCY starring Scarlett Johansson
Lucy

Rated: R 90 min

A woman, accidentally caught in a dark deal, turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.

Director: Luc Besson
Stars:    Scarlett Johansson, Morgan Freeman, Min-sik Choi, Amr Waked

My thoughts: Director Luc Besson has had some great popcorn hits under his belt, like the Taken and Transporter film franchises. He is also credited with creating the CW TV series, Nikita.  So there's that.

Scarlett Johansson... well, if you think about it, I'm guessing there will be a strong male demographic heading out to see this film. She rocks it as The Black Widow in the MCU so why wouldn't she here?

If I weren't going to Comic-Con, this would be the flick I'd be seeing in theaters this week.

BLACKLIST, GRIMM other NBC Titles at Comic-Con 2014

via press release

“Constantine,” “The Blacklist,” “Hannibal,” “Grimm,” “Bates Motel” and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog to Share Secrets With Fans

NBC and Universal Television have announced their plans for the upcoming Comic-Con International gathering in San Diego, which runs from July 24-27.
The network will present panels for returning series “The Blacklist” and “Hannibal” while Universal Television will host panels for NBC’s “Grimm,” its A&E series “Bates Motel” as well as a new untitled series coming to Adult Swim that stars Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and “30 Rock” alumnus Jack McBrayer. Also, Warner Bros. Television will present multiple screenings and a panel for new NBC Friday night series “Constantine.”

CONSTANTINE
Based upon the characters from DC Comics, “Constantine” reflects the lore of the fan-favorite comic, combining noirish storytelling with the evolving mythology of John Constantine (Matt Ryan), a morally challenged character who doesn’t come down on the side of either good or evil … but ultimately might be the only thing defending us against the dark forces from beyond.

There will be a huge presence for “Constantine” at Comic-Con, including at Gaslamp Square (Thursday-Sunday between the Hard Rock Hotel and the Convention Center) where a 3-D experience will immerse fans in the world of “Constantine.” Limited edition souvenirs will also be given away.
Comic-Con fans will have a chance to see the world premiere of the “Constantine” pilot as part of Warner Bros. Television’s annual Preview Night screenings on Wednesday, July 23 at 6 p.m. in Ballroom 20.

The Warner Bros. Television panel for “Constantine” is set for Saturday, July 26 at 5:15 p.m. in room 6BCF. This will include a screening of the complete pilot, followed by a Q&A with cast members Matt Ryan, Harold Perrineau and Charles Halford, as well as executive producers David S. Goyer and Daniel Cerone. The panel will be moderated by TV Guide magazine’s Michael Schneider.

Additionally, on Saturday, July 26 at 8 p.m. in Hall H, “Constantine” will be included in the Warner Bros. Television/DC Entertainment three-hour special Comic-Con event, with cast members and executive producers making appearances on the Hall H stage and footage from the pilot being screened.

THE BLACKLIST
To discuss its phenomenal first season, as well as what’s ahead for season two, Raymond “Red” Reddington himself, James Spader, will headline “The Blacklist” panel on Saturday, July 26 at 1:45 p.m. in room 6A. In addition to Spader, executive producers Jon Bokenkamp and John Eisendrath will participate in the panel, which will be moderated by TV Guide’s Michael Schneider.
The No. 1 new series of the 2013-14 season, “The Blacklist” will take over Tin Fish Restaurant at Gaslamp Square (Thursday-Sunday). Fans will be able to get on “The Blacklist” via a custom photo opportunity and also receive “Blacklist” souvenirs. 

GRIMM
Friday night fave “Grimm” will return to Comic-Con with a panel on Saturday, July 26 at 3 p.m. in Ballroom 20 that will feature an exclusive video. The panel, moderated by Mary McNamara of the Los Angeles Times, will include cast members David Giuntoli, Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch, Silas Weir Mitchell, Sasha Roiz, Reggie Lee, Bree Turner and Claire Coffee, as well as executive producers David Greenwalt, Jim Kouf and Norberto Barba.

HANNIBAL
For the critically beloved drama “Hannibal,” which Vulture.com says is “unlike anything else on TV or anything that ever has been on TV,” the panel will include cast members Caroline Dhavernas, Aaron Abrams and Scott Thompson, as well as executive producers Bryan Fuller, Martha De Laurentiis, Steve Lightfoot and David Slade. The panel, organized by Gaumont International Television and moderated by U.K. talk show host Jonathan Ross, will take place Thursday, July 24 at 4:45 p.m. in Ballroom 20.

BATES MOTEL
Executive producers Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin will be joined by the cast, including Vera Farmiga in her Emmy Award-nominated role as Norma Bates, Freddie Highmore, Olivia Cooke and Nestor Carbonell to discuss the hit series. Fans will hear firsthand details about what is to come in season three debuting in 2015. The panel will be moderated by Dan Snierson from Entertainment Weekly on Friday, July 25 at 3:30 p.m. in Room 6A.

TRIUMPH THE INSULT COMIC DOG/JACK McBRAYER SITCOM
The beloved Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and fan favorite Jack McBrayer team up to star in a new live-action original comedy series that is set to premiere in 2015 on Adult Swim. Join co-creator and voice of Triumph, Robert Smigel, co-creator Michael Koman and star Jack McBrayer  as they discuss the new series Friday, July 25 at 1 p.m. in the Indigo Ballroom, Hilton San Diego Bayfront.

Fans will get a behind-the-scenes look at VIKINGS and have a starring role in their own custom video that can be shared on social media. From the moment fans enter the “back-lot” they will be treated as cast members. Upon entering, guests will create a character profile and choose a weapon of choice. Next, they will meet with hair and make-up artists to become transformed into a fierce Viking and be placed into three scenes complete with Vikings ships, battles, axes and villages. When fans have completed the experience they will have a :30 video to share via Twitter, Facebook or Vine.

Travis Fimmel (Ragnar), Katheryn Winnick (Lagertha), Clive Standen (Rollo) and Alexander Ludwig (Bjorn) will make an appearance on Friday, July 25 from 1 – 2 p.m. at 450 2nd Ave. to sign autographs and take photos with fans.
