We know he could literally beat up all movie contenders this weekend, but does that mean Dwayne Johnson deserves to also beat them in in box office receipts over the coming days?

Let's see what the critics have to say, shall we?

Scroll down for a collection of Hercules reviews from across the Internet and decide if the film is worth your time and money now...

The Rock as Hercules

There's just enough plot to keep the movie lurching forward, and there are plenty of battle scenes to delight connoisseurs of carnage. - Stephen Farber

The mythical Greek strongman gets a refreshingly human spin in Brett Ratner's grandly scaled, solidly entertaining popcorn pic. - Scott Foundas

Someone needs to tell Ben Affleck to cheer up.

The guy is playing Batman, after all!

Director Zack Snyder has unveiled our second photo of Affleck as the Caped Crusader, a role he’ll take on in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, captioning the picture with a simple "#75" in honor of Batman's 75th anniversary.

And the way Affleck looks, you'd think all that Batman casting bashing had really gotten to him:

A full-body shot of Affleck as Batman hit the Internet in May, with reaction mostly positive.

Courtney Love may have been implicated in Kurt Cobain's death by none other than her own father, but she's never been charged with anything, and she was still his wife at the time of his death, which means Courtney controls (and profits from) Cobain's estate and the use of his likeness.

Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love

Sadly, it also means that when the inevitable Kurt Cobain biographical film gets made (you knew it was coming), Courtney will not only cash in big time, she'll also play a part in the creative process.

In fact, the film is currently in the very early stages of pre-production and Courtney is already exerting her will on producers.

By her own admission, Courtney has shoehorned her way into the casting process, which allows her to peruse an endless selection of "blonde, gorgeous 25-year-olds." No, really. She said that:

The official trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey is here. Was it worth the wait?

Our first look at the film adaption of E.L. James' erotic novel debuted on Today this morning, and it's safe to say that Matt Lauer and company don't usually see this much skin on their family friendly set.

Check it out below and see Christian Grey come to life at last ...

"Did that clip just air, or has my alarm just not gone off yet?" Lauer joked afterward.

NBC executives determined that the full trailer was a bit too risque for morning television, so they decided to go with a shortened version, but you can watch the whole thing above.

As teased in the Fifty Shades trailer posted by Beyonce earlier this week, the clip features a new, eroticized version of Bey's 2003 hit, "Crazy in Love."

Prepare to squeal in delight, THGers.

One Direction has released the first trailer for One Direction: Where We Are, an upcoming concert film that will hit theaters on October 11.

The movie will feature 75 minutes of concert performances, along with 15 minutes of never-before-seen behind-the-scenes footage and exclusive interviews with these beautiful Brits.

Most of the performances will be taken from the group’s June show at Milan’s San Siro stadium.

How will this concert film stack up against past similar efforts from Justin Bieber and Michael Jackson?

After seeing his throwback '90s fanny pack photo, you'd think The Rock couldn't possibly produce an online encore that would match such greatness.

He came pretty hard close.

The star of the upcoming Hercules movie (real name Dwayne Johnson) gave fans a behind the scenes look at one of the tasks before the mythical hero:

Patty cake.

The Rock, Patty Cake

On the set of the forthcoming film, the 42-year-old Rock encountered what seemed to be a normal toddler while donning his full Hercules regalia.

Was the youngster intimidated?

Hardly. She challenged him to a game of patty cake, throwing down the gauntlet and challenging the legendary Hercules to compete for the glory. 

Like any true hero, Johnson obliged.

As he later told his followers while posting the above shot, "When a two-year-old asks Hercules to play patty cake on set … well … he plays patty cake."

Nothing more needs to be said.

The release date for Star Wars: Episode VII is still almost 18 months away, but already, rumors about the plot and production seem to emerge every day.

We already know the cast of Episode VII and obsessive fans have already pieced together information about what roles each actor might be playing.

Adam Driver
Adam Driver was one of the first to be cast in the long-awaited Star Wars sequel. He's best known for his role on HBO's Girls.

Recently, photos from the set revealed that the Millennium Falcon will make an appearance, among other details, but today we might have received our biggest bonanza of leaked information to date.

A blogger named Devin Faraci claims to have uncovered a treasure trove of plot secrets (from an unnamed source, of course), and if his information is accurate we may now have a pretty good sense of how the film will begin and the sort of themes it will tackle (possible spoilers ahead):

If only, random IMAX movie theater. If only...

With this summer set to be the lowest-grossing summer in the recent history of cinema, at least one theater has found a way to draw in attendees: is anyone interested in seeing a Transformers Sex Tape?!?

Perhaps the only amateur porn that would rake in more money than the Kim Kardashian Sex Tape, we're sorry to report that a Transformers Sex Tape does not actually exist.

But the new Transformers movie does. And so does the terribly reviewed Sex Tape.

Put them together and you get our favorite marquee of the year:

Transformers Sex Tape Sign

Pretty classic stuff. The real question, of course, is this: 

Would you watch a Transformers Sex Tape?

 

However you feel about Transformers hypothetically getting freaky on film, check out some other names that read differently when put together ...

While Charlie Hunnam famously dropped out of the Fifty Shades of Grey movie not long after being cast back in October, he still feels "invested" in it.

Speaking Sunday while promoting Sons of Anarchy Season 7, the 34-year-old actor said it was "pretty heartbreaking" to walk away from the role.

Charlie Hunnam, No Shirt

"I was just really, really invested and wanted to work with [director] Sam [Taylor-Johnson] and play that character," he said of billionaire Christian Grey.

On how the project will turn out in his absence, he adds, "I'm really, really curious."

Hunnam is sticking to his story that he "couldn't do it because of [my] schedule," even though numerous insiders have said he got cold feet and bailed.

While he says he has "no regrets" about the decision to back out, part of him wishes he could have brought Christian Grey to life opposite Dakota Johnson.

The Kim Kardashian sex tape, it is not.

Reviews are in for the Cameron Diaz-Jason Segel comedy Sex Tape... and very few critics are laughing.

Is this as much of a disaster as the Mimi Faust sex tape, which hasn't been received very well on the Internet? Prepare for some serious hatred and read reviews from a number of movie critics below...

Sex Tape Poster

The folks behind Sex Tape did their homework. They just forgot the laughs. - Steven Rea

Sex is treated first as brainless imperative, then as acrobatic duty, then as desperate consequence - it's never sexy in any way. - Tom Long
