Volcano, Dante's Peak; Deep Impact, Armageddon; No Strings Attached, Friends with Benefits; The Prestige, The Illusionist - that ideas come in twos in Hollywood is nothing new, but seriously, this rapture thing has gotten out of hand.

Renny Harlin’s Hercules 3D will Dante’s Peak Brett Ratner’s Volcano

A few months ago, we <a href="http://filmdrunk.uproxx.com/2012/11/the-rock-playing-hercules-in-brett-ratner-movie" target="_blank">found out</a> that Brett Ratner would be wheezing Cheeto crumbs and leaving nacho cheese fingerprints all over the script for Hercules, with the lead role to be played by The Rock, in a "graphic-novel-based" film produced by Peter "<a href="http://filmdrunk.uproxx.com/2012/05/peter-berg-calls-israeli-interviewer-a-draft-dodger-in-probably-the-best-interview-ever" target="_blank">JOIN THE ARMY, MOTHERF*CKER</a>" Berg.

The Rock is playing Hercules in a Brett Ratner movie

By | 10 Comments

Dwayne the Rock Johnson is one of the most likable and charismatic media personalities around and Brett Ratner is Hollywood's most successful ass-kissing social climber, so it was probably inevitable that they'd one day cross paths (artist's conception above).

I can't tell if this clip of Peter Berg on an Israeli talk show (hat tip: <a href="http://www.pajiba.com/trade_news/battleship-director-peter-berg-calls-out-a-israeli-draft-dodger-during-awkward-interview.php" target="_blank">Pajiba</a>) makes me like him less or more, but I'm leaning towards more.

New Battleship Clips: A Warning From Rihanna And Brooklyn Decker’s Quest For A Burrito

By | 5 Comments

We don't know which is weirder: that Universal sunk over $200 million into a movie about the board game battleship or that it <a href="http://filmdrunk.uproxx.com/2012/04/uh-oh-battleship-1-in-24-of-26-countries">opened in the #1 spot</a> in 24 out of 26 countries overseas.

why god why?

Uh oh. Battleship opens #1 in 24 of 26 countries.

By | 28 Comments

Battleship opened in many territories overseas a month before it's set to open here, and given that it's a $200 million-plus movie ($209 million* according to the studio, $250-plus according to everyone else) based on a board game, its performance could have severe consequences for how many more of these pieces of shit get greenlit.
