The Baywatch lifeguard team might be the best known on the planet, but in this new reality, they are really struggling with their brand. Mitch Buchanan (Dwayne Johnson) is facing cuts to his squad from the council, because they're apparently not doing enough to get themselves noticed (not even with C.J. Parker's [Kelly Rohrbach] slow-motion run). The top brass at the Baywatch Headquarters decide to try and up the popularity by employing a new member to the team; the young, super-athletic and recklessly wild Matt Brody (Zac Efron) who all the girls might like but Mitch is struggling to whip into shape. He's not exactly setting the best example for safety with his endless spontaneous stunts, and Mitch likes him even less when all he's wearing is minuscule American flag Speedos. But these guys have to find some common ground and band together when a body washes up on their beach.

Mitch Buchanan is facing a problem with his Baywatch lifeguard brand. The council are making cutbacks and the team just aren't getting themselves noticed enough. In a bid to up their popularity and spread some good press, the boss at Baywatch Headquarters brings in an athletic young man named Matt Brody who appears to have far too much confidence in himself. Meanwhile, Mitch has very little confidence in him; mainly because he's spreading a bad example with his endless stream of reckless stunts in the name of fun. Things get serious when a body is found on the beach, and Mitch want to investigate what has happened himself. However, it seems Matt sees this as a step too far and would much rather leave the matter to the police.

Alexandra Daddario at the 'Slay Cancer With Dragons' event. Grammy award winning band Imagine Dragons perform in Rock Las Vegas for The Tyler Robinson Foundation held at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, Nevada, United States - Friday 30th September 2016
Set up as an old-style disaster movie with only a fraction of the plot, this earthquake action adventure is preposterous enough to just about work as a guilty pleasure. Everything else about the film is simply absurd, from the fake science to the simplistic family dynamic that strains to hold the story together. But it's definitely a big-screen spectacle, and Dwayne Johnson was made to fill the big screen.
He plays Los Angeles Fire & Rescue chopper pilot Ray, who is going through a divorce from Emma (Carla Gugino) after the death of his young daughter. Now his older daughter Blake (Alexandra Daddario) needs help moving up the coast, but Ray has been called to respond to a freak quake in Nevada. So she travels instead to San Francisco with her mother's millionaire boyfriend (Ioan Gruffudd). Then jittery Cal Tech scientist Lawrence (Paul Giamatti) works out that this temblor is heading for L.A. and will move up the coast to San Francisco, perhaps creating the biggest seismic event the world has ever seen. As he issues urgent warnings, Ray rescues Emma from a collapsing L.A. skyscraper, and they both head north to save their daughter. Meanwhile, Blake has teamed up with sexy Brit Ben (Hugo Johnstone-Burt) and his perky little brother Ollie (Art Parkinson) to survive the chaos in San Francisco.
Despite the filmmakers' stated goal to recreate a classic disaster epic like The Poseidon Adventure (1972) or Earthquake (1974), this film doesn't bother to feature an ensemble cast with complex intertwined storylines. Instead, it heaps all of the drama onto Johnson's beefy shoulders. He has more than enough charisma to hold it together, even if his one big emotional scene feels a bit, well, stony. Everyone else provides a masterclass in panic-stricken acting, running and screaming and fearing for everyone's lives even though it's clear from the start that very few characters will die. Hundreds of thousands of anonymous digitally rendered victims perish, but the movie doesn't bat an eyelid about them.

Alexandra Daddario - Premiere of Warner Bros. Pictures' 'San Andreas' at the TCL Chinese Theatre - Arrivals at TCL Chinese Theater IMAX - Los Angeles, California, United States - Tuesday 26th May 2015
Carla Gugino, Dwayne Johnson and Alexandra Daddario - A host of stars were photographed as they arrived for the World Premiere of 'San Andreas' which was held at the Odeon Leicester Square in London, United Kingdom - Thursday 21st May 2015
California is well-known for playing host to regular earthquakes, being located right on top of the San Andreas fault; in other words, the tectonic plate boundary that separates the Pacific and the North American Plates. However, rarely have earthquakes been seen that have reduced whole cites to rubble, caused huge chasms in the Earth and deadly tidal waves through streets killing thousands of people. The only option for residents is to get as far away as possible, though with such a huge disaster ripping through the state, this one is still going to have an effect on the other side of the country. Meanwhile, chopper pilot Ray and his estranged wife are desperate to find their missing daughter Blake first, and use a Fire Department rescue helicopter to search high and low throughout the state.

There's rumours of a possible movie adaptation on the radar at the moment for DC's biggest heroine - so who would be your Wonder Woman?
Following Christopher Nolan's 'Dark Knight' trilogy and the recent Superman epic 'Man Of Steel', there seems to be one obvious direction to go in next for DC Comics with their film franchises: a Wonder Woman movie, of course. The Amazonian knockout was first portrayed successfully by Lynda Carter in the TV series between 1975 and 1979, and it hasn't yet been put to cinema neither as a solo project for the character nor as a Justice League of America set-up. There have been all sorts of rumours flying about recently with Jaimie Alexander talking a lot about the supposed upcoming Wonder Woman movie and we've got pretty excited discussing who might be considered for the role.
So, who do we think would do the Wonder Woman costume 'justice'?
Jaimie Alexander: The 'Thor' actress has set tongues wagging as she gushed about the character in an interview with Forbes. 'I would love for DC to put Wonder Woman in one of their upcoming flicks, either in her own movie or Batman vs. Superman, or just something even to introduce her', she said. Batman vs. Superman, hmm? Does she know something we don't? On the suggestion that she could be the one to play her, she insisted, 'I'm appreciative to the people who ask my opinion of the character, and that's been pretty amazing.' Jaimie would be perfect for the role given her portrayal of Asgardian strong-woman Sif in the 'Thor' movies, and she even bears an interesting resemblance to Lucy Lawless as 90s TV hero Xena, Warrior Princess.

Alexandra Daddario known for her role as Annabeth, daughter of Athena, in Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief proudly posed for photographers in a mid-length black dress, emphasising her slim figure, appropriate for the role of the daughter of the Goddess of Warfare.
There can't have been a very big demand for a sequel to 2010's The Lightning Thief, but at least this is another adequate adventure for the teen demigods. Much more child-friendly than the first movie, this episode is essentially just a series of heavily animated action set-pieces strung together by the flimsiest of plots. At least it has a sense of energy and some jagged humour to keep grown-ups engaged.
At Half-blood Camp, the refuge for the children of gods with mortals, Percy (Lerman) continues his rivalry with hot-shot Clarisse (Rambin). And when the protective barrier around the camp is poisoned, it's Clarisse who leads a mission to find the healing Golden Fleece in the Sea of Monsters. But Percy knows that he's the subject of a prophecy about the fleece being used to resurrect the destructive Chronos, and that his nemesis Luke (Abel) is up to something evil. So Percy takes his friends Grover and Annabeth (Jackson and Daddario), plus his newly discovered cyclops half-brother Tyson (Smith), and heads off on his own quest.
Despite a few close calls in which characters come close to death, we're pretty sure nothing nasty will happen to these young franchise characters. But director Freudenthal (Diary of a Wimpy Kid) never hangs around long enough for us to realise that there isn't actually any suspense or intrigue in the plot. The film's pace is frantic, as the characters bolt from one crazy scenario to the next, often without bothering to logically connect the two. Several scenes could be cut without changing the story, while others are pure indulgence, such as Fillion's extended cameo as Luke's parcel-delivering father Hermes.
Continue reading: Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters Review
Percy Jackson is the demi-god son of Poseidon and, what's more, all his friends are children of famous Greek gods too. When what he thought was a safe haven, Camp Half-Blood, is suddenly overrun by some deadly vengeful enemies who can only be defeated if her can locate the magical Golden Fleece. He and his friends Annabeth Chase and Tyson embark on a dangerous mission to bring down the reawakened spirit of Kronos, the father of Hades, and in doing so abandons his pride as he enlists the help of the arrogant and very feisty Clarisse La Rue, daughter of the God of War, who is his only hope at staying alive. Unfortunately, the journey ahead is not smooth and they are about to discover what lies beneath the Sea of Monsters.
'Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters' follows on from events in the 2010 original movie 'Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief'. It is based on the adored adventure novel series 'Percy Jackson & the Olympians' written by Rick Riordan. 'Sea of Monsters' sees Thor Freudenthal ('Diary of a Wimpy Kid', 'Hotel for Dogs') step into the role of director alongside screenwriters Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski ('Ed Wood', 'Agent Cody Banks') and Marc Guggenheim ('Green Lantern', 'Arrow'). It is set to appear in cinemas on August 7th 2013.
'Texas Chainsaw 3D' star Alexandra Daddario talks about filming on her new movie 'Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters' in an interview at the Trump Soho hotel in New York. She talks about baby alligators at an abandoned amusement park and the wisdom she's gained from Hollywood.
'Percy Jackson & The Olympians: Sea Of Monsters' is due for release this summer with fantastic new cast additions along with welcome returns from 'The Lightning Thief' ensemble.
The trailer for the second instalment of the Percy Jackson series 'The Sea of Monsters' is finally here welcoming the return of four members of 'The Lightning Thief's all-star cast along with some exciting new additions.
Following a pretty harrowing school year in discovering that his father is the Greek god Poseidon in 'Percy Jackson & the Lightning Thief', Percy Jackson's ordeal is nowhere near over. In the words of Spider-Man, 'With great power comes great responsibility' and that certainly applies here as now the new Percy Jackson Sea of Monsters trailer shows that Percy is forced to defend his half-god friends and family from the destructive forces of Kronos; a force so evil his sons Zeus, Hades and Poseidon had him destroyed. With his dark spirit now a threat to the world, Percy must recover the Golden Fleece; the only object that can save the world and which is located in the unambiguously named Sea of Monsters. Returning to join him on his quest is his good friend Annabeth Chase played by Alexandra Daddario plus new additions in the shape Douglas Smith as his half-brother Tyson and Leven Rambin, who plays the feisty Clarisse, daughter of the God of War. Logan Lerman makes his return as Percy and Jake Abel is back as the double-crossing son of Hermes, Luke. We also see Brandon T. Jackson back as Percy's best friend Grover Underwood, who's less than happy about Percy's dangerous mission.
