Now that we’ve officially passed the Halloween hump and put a slew of seasonal horror releases behind us, the studios have plenty of Christmas titles they are already pumping and dumping this year. But don’t worry. There are some big releases, too, starting with Disney’s blockbuster, Maleficent.

Disney’s 35th original animated feature is not one of the most memorable in the company’s canon. Regardless, it is an enjoyable—and strikingly weird—addition to the Disney universe, one that can now be enjoyed in full High Definition glory. Otherwise, the musical spectacle is about the same as it ever was.

A new clip from Brett Ratner's Hercules was newly released by MTV, as part of a promotion for their 2014 Movie Awards. Could this be another unexpected silver lining in the career of Brett Ratner, or could this trigger massive 'Scorpion King'-centric night terrors? You be the judge.

The Legend Of Hercules Hammers Four New Clips Into Your Head The Legend Of Hercules Hammers Four New Clips Into Your Head
Part of me is pretty geared up for Harlin’s insanely over-the-top The Legend of Hercules. We get to see quite a bit of the battle scenes in these four new clips, plus Kellan Lutz’s titular character nearing a possibly forbidden makeout session with Hebe (Gaia Weiss). While I’m sure it wasn’t against any laws for Lutz to wear a shirt during the production of this film, there must have been some kind of a contractual obligation warning against it.

Can I go on the shame-filled record to say that I’m actually quite interested in seeing this, and it probably has a lot to do with the 300 similarities. After a year of seeing multiple takeovers of the White House and different battles between humans and creatures, I’m rather looking forward to a movie where muscular men just beat the shit out of one another. If it all has to tie into a truncated origin story of Hercules, so be it.

If you don’t follow The Rock on Twitter, you’re making a big mistake. His account is a hodgepodge of funny comments, aggressive commands about hitting up the gym and reveals about the bazillion movie projects he always seems to be working on. As you can tell from the above image, this is an example of that last category.

In one corner, as Hercules, you have Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, a gigantic human and genuine movie star who will allow you to have faith in what feels like the umpteenth Hercules movie. And in the other corner, you have Kellan Lutz, a Twilight hunk and notably less gigantic human, who is also playing Hercules.

Those who've stared long enough at Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson might be familiar enough with the actor's sculpted physique to recognize the sight of his bicep and triceps without actually seeing his face.

Dwayne Johnson, one of the most charismatic actors working in action movies today, is playing coy about his look in Brett Ratner's upcoming film Hercules. Over the last few weeks the star has shared a number of behind-the-scenes photos from the film, but each time he has had his face obscured or hidden from the camera. That tradition continues today with yet another picture of The Rock on set.
