moana love interest

The original Disney princess characters were crafted in a traditional fairy tale mold. They were damsels in distress, beautiful young women who are terrorized by villains for 90 minutes before getting rescued by a bland but resourceful hero. That has started to slowly change over the years, but even tougher-than-usual Disney heroines like Jasmine still needed an Aladdin to rescue them from certain doom.

If recent Disney animated movies have started to bend the princess mold, it certainly sounds like Moana is going to try to shatter it. Directors John Musker and Ron Clements, who previously helmed The Little Mermaid and The Princess and Frog, have revealed that that the titular princess in their movie won’t have a love interest at all.

Dwayne Johnson as Doc Savage

Dwayne Johnson‘s busy schedule has made room for USA. The actor — who’s already attached to the Jumanji remake, Doc Savage, and Rampage — is producing a new television drama, Muscle Beach. The show is set in the 1980s and takes place at Venice Beach’s famous workout spot. Johnson says the story follows “lost souls” that “struggle to reinvent themselves by bench-pressing their way to a bigger, better American dream, no matter what the cost.” Thematically, it doesn’t sound very different from Pain & Gain.

Below, learn more about the Dwayne Johnson TV series.

Moana international trailer

In June we shared with you the first trailer for Walt Disney Animation’s next film Moana, which mostly focused on Dwayne Johnson‘s character, demigod Maui. A new international trailer hit the web last night, showing a completely different sequence from early in the film.

Fans in attendance at last year’s D23 Expo will recognize this footage as an early version of it was shown off in Anaheim. The story at the center of this film has yet to suck me in, but this beautiful and poetic sequence has me very interested. Watch the Moana international trailer now, embedded after the jump.

Ballers Season 2 Trailer

It took eleven different guys to take down Andy Garcia in Ocean’s Eleven, so it should come as no surprise that even Dwayne Johnson will have some trouble facing off with the Oscar nominee in the forthcoming second season of the HBO series Ballers.

The series is essentially Entourage set in the world of sports, but with much more of a focus on the business side of things. Essentially, it’s like Dwayne Johnson is Jeremy Piven’s character, but he’s much less obnoxious and nowhere near as offensive or angry. The second season is premiering later this week, and a new Ballers season 2 trailer shows that Andy Garcia will be a force to be reckoned with for Dwayne Johnson. Read More »

dwayne johnson the wolf man

I’ll give Universal this much: they appear to be hellbent on ensuring that their upcoming Universal monster revivals are major events. The original films were B-movies in the classic sense of the word, produced for small budgets by clever filmmakers forced to work within the confines of a genre that many audiences and artists simply did not take seriously. Time has been kind to Dracula and Frankenstein and the rest of their cinematic siblings, but it took a few decades for the original run of classic monster movies to truly earn their place in the larger cultural canon.

And now, we’re looking at a possible future where Dwayne Johnson, one of the biggest movie stars in the world, is apparently being eyed to star in a new version of The Wolf Man.

Centrai Intelligence Review

Take one of the biggest movie stars in the world and team him up with one of the smallest, and it sounds like a gimmick in the making. On paper, just the sight of Dwayne Johnson standing alongside Kevin Hart will incite a smile. But do the two have what it takes to lead an action comedy that is funny, exciting and overall entertaining?

Thankfully, in Central Intelligence, from We’re the Millers director Rawson Thurber Marshall, the answer is mostly yes. However, this may only be because Johnson and Hart are such an irresistible duo that they make you forget that the action and plot surrounding them is hollow, dull and merely acts as an excuse for these two to engage with each other for laughs.
