 Will Gerard Butler turn to dramatic roles, after receiving high praise for his roles in THE MACHINE GUN PREACHER and CORIOLANUS? Probably not, at least not according to "Variety"
which reports that he is in negotiations to star in Antoine Fuqua's HUNTER KILLER. Based on the novel "Firing Point" by George Wallace and Don Keith, the story follows an untested submarine captain who must work with a Navy SEAL team to rescue Russia's president, who's taken prisoner during a military coup. The two sides team to stop a rogue Russian general from igniting World War III. Butler would play the captain, while Sam Worthington is rumored for the role of the Navy SEAL team leader.

Here's something that is going straight to DVD market this January! But if you love epics, you will still like this one: it's the
third part of THE SCORPION KING: BATTLE FOR REDEMPT ION Starring Ron Perlman, Billy Zane and Victor Webster, this lavish production will include an army of warrior elephants and astounding battle sequences featuring a myriad of martial arts and swordfight sequences. The plot: Since his triumphant rise to power in the original blockbuster THE SCORPION KING, Mathayus' kingdom has fallen and he's lost his queen to plague. Now an assassin for hire, he must defend a kingdom from an evil tyrant and his ghost warriors for the chance to regain the power and glory he once knew.

Your video treat for the end of the week is the first trailer for THIS MEANS WAR which should hit theaters next February. The story in this rather silly and brutal action comedy revolves around the world’s deadliest CIA operatives (Tom Hardy and Chris Pine) who are inseparable partners and best friends until they fall for the same woman (Reese Witherspoon). Having once helped bring
down entire enemy nations, they are now employing their incomparable skills and an endless array of high-tech gadgetry against their greatest nemesis ever - each other. Although the lead trio seems charming and super fun, we shall have to wait and see how the movie will turn out, since it is directed by always awful McG (CHARLIE'S ANGELS, TERMINATOR SALVATION) and written by the writer of equally awful MR. AND MRS. SMITH.


  1. Dezzy - Sam Worthington is soooo beautiful. And the trailer does look silly, but I'm sure I'll watch it at some point. LOL

  2. nice pic of Sam, isn't it? :)
    Yep, too much mindless violence in the trailer, not really funny, even a bit distasteful :(

  3. Oh my gosh that trailer had me from the first second. I have to see This Means War!

  4. glad to see you excited, Erin :) Hope you approve of today's pics , too :P

  5. I think I prefer MI-5 spies (I'm so hooked on that show right now).

  6. Another Scorpion King movie, really?

  7. Geez I'd rather watch the Mummy 3 than another Scorpion King movie. And McG hahaha that's almost, or just as bad, as Ratner. I don't hold out much hope.

  8. oh right, i thought it was the mummy 3 for a second.

  9. Reese, Tom and Chris make a very intriguing trio in This Means War. I think I'd like to see it.

    Gerard as a submarine captain? I'm there with baited breath. ;))

  10. Does gerald want to be known for only action role and rom-coms?

    And to be honest the action in This means war is the only reason i would watch it. Exept for the action, it doesn't seem all that different from the typical bland hollywood rom-com

  11. Reese is looking good in this new role...marriage treating her well.

    xo Lisa

  12. This means War looks awesome. Action, Tom Hardy and funnies make for a good movie :)

  13. This Means War sounds good, Hunter Killer sounds like a good Tom Clancy book (but not movie) but The Scorpion King 3 (people must have had tax bills to pay or their mum needed a bigger house).

  14. @MS
    he is a very preferable creature :)))

    which one? Something with Dicky Armitage? :)

    really, for sure and indeed

  15. @PAt
    yep, both McG and RAtner are horrid directors

    MUMMY III was shot almost three years ago :)

    there will be lots of sweating in the submarine, which means shirtless sailors :)

  16. @Dirty
    well, 'tis better being an action or romcom stars than a vampire one :PPPP

    I thought the same, she totally steals the show in the trailer, and looks like the only one who enjoys herself

    we do love us some Hardy

    every film has its audience

  17. After loving Chris Pine in WARRIORS (one of my fave movies this year), I'll see him in anything.

  18. Oops - I meant Tom Hardy!! (I'm getting my hot guys's names mixed up).

  19. The only reason I would see SCORPION KING 3 is because of Ron Perlman. I remember having high hopes for Billy Zane back in THE PHANTOM days, but he really kind of disappeared from the mainstream after TITANIC.

    THIS MEANS WAR ... yeah, I'd see that.

  20. Ooh... I hope Gerard takes his shirt off in this one. I hope they both do.

  21. This Means War is just ridiculous, oh man what in the world are Pine & Hardy doing in this crapfest?? Reese should go back to acting.

    As for Hunter Killer, I quite like the premise though I wish there's a bit of romance going on but it's in a submarine so probably not :( I like Worthington and of course Gerry Berry is my fave so seeing both of them together on screen sounds like a great idea :D

  22. @Liz
    HArdy, Hardy, he's million times better in acting and looking good than Chris :)

    Ron plays the Egyptian king in the film :) which is hilarious by itself :) It's true about Zane, he actually became a star of DVD market, he has tones of insignificant TV or Dvd films in which he plays the lead role. I've recently watched him in some deserted island film in which he plays a psycho

  23. @Jessie
    we shall keep our fingers crossed :))

    oh, why didn't I have that brilliant "crapfest" word while writing the post :) I would've used it to describe that horrid film. Oh, I will borrow it from you some other time :)
    Let's just pray that Gerard and Sam don't get Rihanna like Taylor Kitsch and Alexander Skarsgaard in BATTLESHIP :))

  24. No, not Dicky. I liked Adam and Ros until they blew them both up. No one lives very long on that show. :(

  25. Not feeling THIS MEANS WAR. Looks stupid. I'm sure the studio thinks it'll capture the chick romance-hunting and guy-action crowd but it sems like it's trying to please everyone and will end up pleasing no one but the easily pleased, of which there are billions I guess.

  26. @Luanne
    I've no idea who Adam and Ros are :))

    stupid, indeed. Not sure people should joke with violence in that way. It's just not charming.
