This week is one of those weeks with so much brand new Blu-ray and DVD content, I wish I could just cuddle under my covers through Friday and power through TV shows like Major Crimes and The Newsroom and movies, including The Emperor’s New Groove 2-Movie Collection (never discount Disney’s two-for-one Blu-ray deals).

The Rock Has Dominated 2013 To The Tune Of Almost $1 Billion The Rock Has Dominated 2013 To The Tune Of Almost $1 Billion
Besides having some of the most talked about action movies of the year on his resume, The Rock can also boast that three of his most recent ventures hit #1 at the box office. To date, his 2013 releases have made more than $956 million! But movies aren't the only medium The Rock is dominating this summer.

Weekend Box Office: Snitch Stumbles As Identity Thief Steals Its Way Back To Number One Weekend Box Office: Snitch Stumbles As Identity Thief Steals Its Way Back To Number One
After starting out as the top movie on Friday, The Rock's action entry Snitch tapered off to settle for an overall second place this weekend behind The Identity Thief which returned to the number one spot for the second time in three weekends. With juts $13 million, Snitch marks Johnson's second lowest wide opening ever, behind the awkward Faster debut of $8 million back in 2010.

Snitch Tops Friday Box Office, But Identity Thief Will Win The Weekend Snitch Tops Friday Box Office, But Identity Thief Will Win The Weekend
When you think about the movies this weekend, your mind probably immediately goes to the Oscars, the Super Bowl for film geeks that gets started this Sunday. But in the meantime there are at least some people actually going to theaters this weekend… though not nearly as many as studios might hope.

In ads for this weekend's Snitch, you'll definitely recognize The Rock-- he's there with his muscles, his charisma and bald head, the markings of a movie star who's been emerging as one of our biggest over the last few years. But once you actually sit down to watch Snitch, you might realize you're seeing someone else entirely

Operation Kino 102 Review: The Rock Gets Serious With Snitch Operation Kino 102 Review: The Rock Gets Serious With Snitch
We're bracing ourselves for a lot of movies starring The Rock coming our way in the next few months, and kicking things off is Snitch, a movie inspired by a true story and sharply critical of the very real government policy of mandatory minimum sentencing for drug offenders. Sound boring? Well, that's where The Rock comes in to spice things up

Dwayne Johnson Will Do Anything For His Son In Snitch Super Bowl Trailer Dwayne Johnson Will Do Anything For His Son In Snitch Super Bowl Trailer

During Sunday's game we'll see the first preview of the upcoming Fast Six, where the action star returns as DSS Federal Agent Luke Hobbs, as well as a new look at Snitch, the new thriller from director Ric Roman Waugh.

Dwayne Johnson Gets Serious In New Poster For Snitch Dwayne Johnson Gets Serious In New Poster For Snitch
This isn't news, but Dwayne Johnson isn't a small guy. A former professional wrestler who stands at 6'4", the guy is 260 pounds of pure muscle and intimidation - which makes it a challenge every time out when he's working to play the everyman. But that's something that the makers of the upcoming thriller Snitch hope that Johnson's acting skills will compensate for.

Typecasting can be a terrible thing in Hollywood, with talented actors stuck in endless unchallenging roles because they were good at playing that type of guy once, so why not have to do it again and again? But sometimes there's just some truth behind the typecasting; sometimes an actor is just really good at playing a certain type

I, Frankenstein Pushed Back Seven Months, Snitch Takes Its Place I, Frankenstein Pushed Back Seven Months, Snitch Takes Its Place
If you've been looking forward to seeing Aaron Eckhart play a monster in the upcoming adaptation of Kevin Grevioux's graphic novel I, Frankenstein then I'm afraid that I have some bad news. Lionsgate and Summit have announced that the Stuart Beattie movie, which wrapped production earlier this year, has been given a huge shove, moving from its original release date on February 22, 2013 to September 13, 2013 (a seven month push).

Benjamin Bratt Going Up Against Dwayne Johnson In Snitch Benjamin Bratt Going Up Against Dwayne Johnson In Snitch
The story likely lured Bratt in. Snitch is inspired by actual events, where a concerned dad (Dwayne Johnson) agrees to an unusual deal to go undercover in a Mexican cartel to obtain valuable information and get his son off serious charges.

Michael K. Williams Can't Do Django Unchained, Has A Role In Snitch With The Rock Michael K. Williams Can't Do Django Unchained, Has A Role In Snitch With The Rock
Michael K. Williams was almost the star of Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained. According to an interview with the actor a couple months ago, it came down to him and Jaime Foxx, but it was Foxx who ended up with the gig. It wasn't a total loss: because the writer/director was so impressed with Williams, he decided that he was going to create a role in the movie just for him. Sadly, however, it looks like it just wasn't meant to be.

The Walking Dead's Jon Bernthal Joins Snitch The Walking Dead's Jon Bernthal Joins Snitch
One of the most interesting and talked about subjects with regards to the second season of AMC’s The Walking Dead is what’s going on with Shane. Jon Bernthal’s character took a dark and interesting turn a couple episodes back. While we don’t quite know where this is going for his character, things are a bit clearer for Jon Bernthal’s career. The actor has been cast alongside Susan Sarandon and Dwayne Johnson in the upcoming Ric Roman Waugh directed Snitch.

Barry Pepper Bags Supporting Roles In Two High-Profile Thrillers Barry Pepper Bags Supporting Roles In Two High-Profile Thrillers
Pepper’s been on a bit of a role. He recently took home an Emmy for playing Bobby Kennedy in the otherwise-controversial The Kennedys on Starz. He also wrapped a part in Terrence Malick’s latest, mysterious project, where he’ll act opposite Javier Bardem. But he’s such a reliable character actor that adding him to virtually any ensemble immediately improves the gathered cast

Susan Sarandon May Be Teaming With Dwayne Johnson For Drug Thriller Snitch Susan Sarandon May Be Teaming With Dwayne Johnson For Drug Thriller Snitch
Planets aligned when the Movie Gods paired Vin Diesel with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnsonfor Fast Five. It was like muscular chocolate was discovering steroid-enhanced peanut butter for the first time. Some steakheads were just meant to collaborate. Other acting partners strike us as… well, strange.

Dwayne Johnson Cast In Snitch Dwayne Johnson Cast In Snitch
Sorry Harry Potter fans. Snitch is not a film about the popular wizarding sport of Quiddich, but instead is a high flying action thriller that will star Dwayne Johnson. Although, The Rock would probably make a great keeper since he’s so gigantic
