Which One Of These Actors Should Play Tupac?


Tupac Shakur Idris Elba Mekhi Phifer Michael B. Jordan Anthony Mackie Brandon T. Jackson

18 years after the murder of Tupac Shakur the rapper will be bought back to life, this time not by a hologram projector but by an actor. The Tupac biopic is finally in the works, with rumours that Idris Elba may be lined up to play the late rapper. The biopic is set to be directed by an old friend of Shakur’s, John Singleton, who has over twenty years in the business and films such as Boyz n the Hood, Baby Boy and 2 Fast 2 Furious under his belt. Singleton directed Tupac, who starred as a young postal clerk, in his 1993 film Poetic Justice, so he was well-acquainted with the rapper. Who better to direct than someone who was accustomed to the subject of the biopic?

tupac biopic Tupac was just 25 when he was shot and killed in Las Vegas

Singleton may be the ideal director for the project, but is Idris Elba, at 41 years old, the best choice to play the rapper, who died at 25? Idris is a supremely talented actor, so we’re sure that he’ll do a stellar job, but if casting directors need a little more choice, why not try one of this lot?

Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters Review


OK

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.

Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters - Clips


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.

A Week In Movies: Max Irons And Jake Abel Talk The Host While Percy Jackson, 2 Guns And We Steal Secrets Trailers Hit The Web

Oblivion
It's a relatively quiet week for the movies, with no major releases this week as everyone braces for the true launch of the summer blockbuster season with Tom Cruise sci-fi action Oblivion on 12th April, followed two weeks later by Robert Downey Jr's return for Iron Man 3. There won't be another quiet week until September, basically.

So in cinemas this week, the US and UK swap releases: American audiences will get their chance to see James McAvoy in Danny Boyle's sleek hypnosis thriller Trance, which is No 3 on the UK box office chart. While British cinemas will get a look at James Franco's scene-stealing wannabe rapper-gangster in Spring Breakers, which currently sits at No 9 on the US chart.

While out promoting last week's rather quietly released sci-fi adventure The Host, costars Max Irons and Jake Abel chatted about the on-set pranks between the co-stars, showing a considerable gift for improvised banter. They look a bit punchy after sitting in these seats answering questions for hours on end, but after lots of joking around, they eventually get to talking about the film.

in Percy Jackson & The Olympians: Sea of Monsters

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.

Percy Jackson & The Olympians: Sea Of Monsters Trailer


If Percy Jackson's life hadn't already become chaotic enough already what with discovering that he's the demi-god son of Poseidon and that his friends are all children of Olympus, it's about to get even more out of control as his safe haven Camp Half-Blood suddenly comes under attack from some deadly foes hell bent on revenge. To save his kind, he must find the Golden Fleece in order to defeat the reawakened spirit of Kronos; the father of Hades, Zeus and Poseidon all of whom destroyed him many years ago. The Fleece can be found in the tumultuous waters of the Sea of Monsters, located in the Bermuda Triangle. To get hold of it, Percy must band together with the daughter of the God of War, Clarisse La Rue; his half-brother Tyson; and his other trusted friend Annabeth Chase. However, the journey doesn't bode to be easy and they discover just why the Sea of Monsters is named thus.

'Percy Jackson & The Olympians: Sea Of Monsters' is the sequel to the 2010 movie 'Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief'; both based on the fantasy book series written by Rick Riordan. It has been directed by Thor Freudenthal ('Diary of a Wimpy Kid', 'Hotel for Dogs') and with several screenwriters: Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski ('Ed Wood', 'Agent Cody Banks'), and Marc Guggenheim ('Green Lantern', 'Arrow'). It is due to theaters from August 16th 2013.

Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son Review


Terrible
It's astonishing that there's a third film in this deeply unfunny series (I skipped Part 2). But at least it's undemanding to watch, with its by-the-numbers plot, paper-thin characters and cheesy sentimentality.

After witnessing a murder, FBI agent Malcolm (Lawrence) takes his 17-year-old rapper-wannabe son Trent (Jackson) undercover with him: Malcolm again becomes Big Momma, while Trent enrols in a girls' performing arts school as Charmaine.

While Malcolm plays housemother while seeking evidence needed to lock up the Russian killer (Curran), Trent hangs with the girls, falling for a musician Haley (Lucas). And the school maintenance man (Love) falls for Momma.

Percy Jackson & the Olyimpians: The Lightning Thief Review


OK
To say this film has heavy echoes of Harry Potter is an understatement.

Although, the Greek-gods premise lets the filmmakers indulge in some visually whizzy sequences that keep this rather lightweight action movie entertaining.

Percy (Lerman) is a New York teen whose mother (Keener) has never told him that his father is the god Poseidon (McKidd) and his best pal Grover (Jackson) is actually a protector satyr. When Zeus (Bean) discovers that his lightning bolt has been stolen, he blames Percy. So Percy has to learn quickly who he is so he can find the lightning thief and restore peace to feuding brothers Poseidon, Zeus and Hades (Coogan). In addition to Grover, he gets help from a professor-centaur (Brosnan) and his fellow demigod Annabeth (Daddario).
