"Tell me those aren't sharks."
Back in 2010, Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief opened in theaters, ready to capitalize on the popularity of Harry Potter — Christopher Columbus, the director the first two Harry Potter movies, was at the helm. Like Potter, it told a story of a young kid who finds out he has extraordinary powers and is actually the son of an extraordinary parent (in this case, Poseidon). Though critics were mixed, the movie made enough money for a sequel, Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Sea of Monsters, which will put the Percy Jackson movie franchise to the test this summer. watch the trailer >> Posted 04.03.13 by Ryan

Who should play Peter Parker's best frienemy?
Even though director Marc Webb has expressed some reluctance about leaping right back into the swing of things (pardon the pun) with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 so soon after The Amazing Spider-Man, plans for the sequel are moving right along. We recently learned that Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) has been offered the role of Mary Jane Watson, Peter Parker's college girlfriend and eventual wife in the Marvel comic books and his paramour in the Sam Raimi-directed trilogy. And, only days ago, Academy Award-winner Jamie Foxx (Ray) teased fans by tweeting that he had "dressed up as Electro for Halloween," the villain known to be menacing Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) in the sequel, a bold casting move that Webb seemed to confirm when he later called Foxx an "electrifying" actor.
The only other new character that is known to be appearing in the sequel and that does not yet have an actor's name attached is Harry Osborn, son of Norman Osborn, whose company was directly responsible for the creation of both Spider-Man and the Lizard (Rhys Ifans). In the comic books, as in Raimi's movies, Harry was Peter's friend until his father, wearing the guise of the Green Goblin, is killed during a battle with Spider-Man. Harry then takes up the mantle of the Goblin and sets out to destroy Spider-Man. James Franco got his big break by landing the role of Harry in Raimi's trilogy. Who do you think has what it takes to fill Franco's shoes and go tit for tat with Garfield in the sequel?

For the past 10 years or so, whenever Emma Watson attended the MTV Movie Awards, it was to promote the latest Harry Potter movie. But now that the saga has concluded, Watson was on hand at the awards to promote her first post-Potter project — The Perks of Being a Wallflower. (Though Watson and the cast of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 did win for Best Cast.)
Watson joined her Wallflower co-stars, Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, The Three Musketeers) and Ezra Miller (We Need to Talk About Kevin) on stage before the awards show to introduce the trailer for the movie, based on the 1999 novel by Stephen Chbosky, who wrote and directed the adaptation.
In addition to the new trailer, the movie’s poster was also unveiled, showing the three stars in front of a green brick wall with the tagline: "We Are Infinite." Is it just us, or is it weird seeing Watson alongside two male co-stars who are not Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint? Watch the new trailer >> Posted 06.04.12 by Chris
For those of you who have always wanted a 3-D big screen adaptation of The Three Musketeers from the director of Resident Evil: Afterlife, your time has almost come. For those of you a little skeptical, several new preview clips have been released to convince you that Paul W.S. Anderson hasn't destroyed author Alexandre Dumas' classic story.
Anderson has promised that his Three Musketeers is "exactly the story of The Three Musketeers" but told "in a slightly different way", and will still see a young D'Artagnan (Logan Lerman) head to Paris to meet up with the Three Musketeers — Athos(Matthew Macfayden), Porthos (Ray Stevenson), and Aramis (Luke Evans). Together, they will band together to bring down the evil Cardinal Richelieu (Christoph Waltz). Just, in 3-D and featuring giant sailing ships attached to hot-air balloons that have battles in the sky with cannons. You know, "exactly the story of The Three Musketeers." watch the clips >> Posted 10.07.11 by Ryan
Even though Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief failed to impress at the box office, it was revealed back in March that Fox 2000 intended to develop a sequel based on the next book in Rick Riordan's Camp Half-Blood series, The Sea of Monsters. The screenwriting team of Scot Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (1408, Man of the Moon) were said to to have been hired to write the adaptation, though no formal announcement about the sequel was ever made by Fox 2000.
Formal announcement or not, the project is apparently moving along as 24Frames recently cited "a source familiar with the production" as having disclosed that Thor Freudenthal (Diary of a Wimpy Kid) has been hired to take the helm of Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Sea of Monsters, replacing Lightning Thief director Chris Columbus, who will stay on as a producer only. The source also revealed Fox 2000 "exercised the option" on Logan Lerman, ensuring the young actor will return to reprise the role of Percy Jackson in the sequel. more about the Percy Jackson sequel >> Posted 06.17.11 by BrentJS
Paul W.S. Anderson's Resident Evil: Afterlife has yet to reach theaters, but the writer/director is already at work on another movie. This time, Anderson is adapting Alexandre Dumas' The Three Musketeers, meaning that despite Anderson continuing to shoot in 3-D, he will switch from a post-apocalyptic zombie landscape to 17th Century France.
Anderson admitted earlier this month that making another Musketeers isn't the change of pace that many people would expect for the director of Death Race. The latest set photos from ComingSoon reveal a comfortable Anderson amongst the Bamburg, Germany location. Also pictured are Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief) in costume as D'Artagnan, and Mads Mikkelssen (Clash of the Titans) as the villain Rochefort, both with eyepatch and without.
The Three Musketeers opens April 15, 2011, and also stars Ray Stevenson, Luke Evans, Matthew Macfadyen, Milla Jovovich and Christoph Waltz. Posted 08.27.10 by Ryan
The rumors that have surrounded the casting of the new Peter Parker, aka Spider-Man, in director Marc Webb's Spider-Man franchise reboot may soon be coming to an end. According to Deadline, the decision-makers at Sony viewed the screen tests of most of the top contenders for the role on Friday, including Jamie Bell, Anthon Yelchin, Aaron Johnson, Logan Lerman, Andrew Garfield, and Alden Ehrenreich. who else is also in contention? >> Posted 06.27.10 by BrentJS
In February, Logan Lerman announced that "conversations" had begun between himself and Sony for the part of Peter Parker in the upcoming Spider-Man reboot. The studio quickly reacted by stating a "wide net" had been cast for the role and "no offers have been made." Since then, plenty of names have been mentioned for the Spider-Man role, Aaron Johnson, Jamie Bell, and Josh Hutcherson. Hutcherson confirmed to Movieline that he is still in contention for the titular role. Will Hutcherson land the coveted role? >> Posted 06.21.10 by Ryan
It appears that the highly controversial "Is he or isn't he?" debate about whether or not Percy Jackson star Logan Lerman will be taking over the role of Peter Parker, aka Spider-Man, from Tobey Maguire in the Spider-Man reboot is at an end. Lerman sparked the debate himself back in February when he announced that he had been in talks with Sony to take over the role, but he recently admitted to MTV that he didn't know anything about director Marc Webb's Spider-Man movie and had not tried on the classic red-and-blue Spider-Man suit.
