Mark Wahlberg's "Lone Survivor" and Kellan Lutz's Hercules Movie



1.  "Lone Survivor"  (R)  Trailer and Featurette



Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, and Ben Foster play a four-man SEAL team sent into Afghanistan to capture and kill a Taliban leader.



After their mission is compromised, their decision to release some civilians and risk the chance that they'll warn the enemy turns into a desperate battle that only one soldier walks away from.  Eric Bana is also in it as their commanding officer back at the base.



2.  "The Legend of Hercules"  (PG-13)  Trailer



Kellan Lutz from the "Twilight" movies plays Hercules, the son of Zeus.  He's betrayed by his stepfather, who sells him into slavery and arranges for the woman he loves to marry his evil half-brother. 



So Hercules uses his god-like strength to win his freedom and lead an army against them.  Liam McIntyre from "Spartacus" plays his best friend, an army captain sold into slavery with him, who fights at his side to take back his kingdom.



This is actually the first of TWO Hercules movies coming out this year.  The Rock stars in another one that will be out in July.  That one takes place later in Hercules' life, whereas this one is more of an origin story.



Supposedly Kellan wanted to bulk up for the role, but the director told him to just, quote, "get his abs to pop out more."  Kellan Lutz may be smaller than The Rock, but he's still pretty ripped. 



In fact, there's an amusing video where Kellan decides to prove to an interviewer that he did all his own stunts . . . by lifting her three feet off the ground while she's still sitting in her interview chair.  (Skip to the :45 mark here.)

There's a "Point Break" Remake in the Works, and Gerard Butler is Up for the Swayze Role 

There's a "Point Break" remake in the works, with GERARD BUTLER set to play the PATRICK SWAYZE character Bodhi . . . the adrenaline-junkie, Zen master, bank-robbing surfer who went up against KEANU REEVES.  Not surprisingly, people are already complaining.

"Storage 24" Was the Lowest Grossing Movie of 2013 



"Iron Man 3" was the highest-grossing movie in the U.S. last year, taking in $409 million at the box office.



On the other end of the spectrum was "Storage 24" . . . a British sci-fi horror flick that took in 72 BUCKS, to make it the LOWEST-grossing movie in U.S. theaters in 2013.  It only played ONE theater, and for ONE WEEK last January, but still.



As for critical reception, the movie only got a 43% rating from critics on, and a 4.4 out of 10 user rating on, so I don't think we missed a hidden classic or anything.  (Here's the trailer.)

And Now . . . A Guy and His Dog Recreate Romantic Movie Scenes 

This is kind of low-rent, but it's still occasionally funny:  Some guy recreated classic romantic movie scenes with his DOG.



They're pictures, not videos.  He does the upside-down kiss from "Spider-Man", the pottery scene from "Ghost" and the classic seduction scene from "The Graduate", to name a few.  (Check 'em out here.)
