Homer’s ‘The Odyssey’ Movie Next For ‘Hunger Games’ Producers. EXCLUSIVE: Finishing this fall with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, Lionsgate is developing a grand-scale retelling of history’s greatest voyage home, Homer’s The Odyssey.

Homer’s ‘The Odyssey’ Movie Next For ‘Hunger Games’ Producers

To accomplish this epic, Lionsgate has enlisted Francis Lawrence to direct, Peter Craig to write and Nina Jacobson to produce. Lawrence directed three of the four Hunger Games films, Craig co-scripted the two installments of Mockingjay, and Jacobson and her Color Force have shepherded the franchise from the very beginning. Lawrence also helmed I Am Legend and Craig co-wrote The Town with Ben Affleck. Lionsgate has put this on a fast track. The plan is to begin production early next year, right after the filmmakers complete promotion of Mockingjay – Part 2, which will be released November 20. The epic has been done several times by Hollywood in films and TV, either directly or indirectly. 'Hercules': Film Review. A movie based on a comic book or a graphic novel cries out for brevity, yet this year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier is 136 minutes, while The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is 142 minutes and the new Transformers runs almost three hours.

'Hercules': Film Review

COVER STORY The Drive (and Despair) of The Rock You'll have to say one thing for Brett Ratner's production of Hercules: This movie has a sense of proportion. Running just over 90 minutes, the movie is often clunky, but at least it's fast and unpretentious. And its likable star, Dwayne Johnson, manages to murder legions without ever seeming sadistic. Less violent than 300, less compelling than Gladiator, this new addition to the sword-and-sandals genre seems likely to please the fanboy audience and stir up some impressive box-office numbers. The film begins by recounting the legend of Hercules, with snippets of his famous 12 labors. The Greek myths that could be box-office hits. Making of PompeiiComputer Graphics.

Pop Classics: Top 5 representations of ancient Athens in film and TV

The majority of our textual evidence from the Classical period comes from Athens. It was the home of Plato, Sophocles and Thucydides, the birthplace of democracy and philosophy, one of the two states that led a Greek coalition to victory in the Persian Wars. If asked to picture 'ancient Greece' in your mind, chances are the image behind your eyes is that of the Parthenon, the Athenians' beautiful temple to Athena, sitting on top of the Acropolis (the rock it's on) standing guard over the city. And yet, Athens appears strangely rarely on film and television. Wet, cold, miserable Roman Britain is far better served that hot, sunny, beautiful ancient Athens. Modern Athens shows up every now and again.

But when it comes to fictional representations of ancient Athens, the city is bizarrely poorly served. And yet, even the few films in which you might expect to see Athens don't always show it. 5. 4. Ancient Roman Women in Film. Posted on 26.

Ancient Roman Women in Film

Mar, 2014 by Brittany Britanniae in Roman culture In honor of March being National Women’s History Month, I thought it appropriate to pay respect to those ancient Roman women who have been portrayed (accurately or inaccurately) in film and television.

Film brings Pompeii back to life perfectly – and destroys it again

The ancient city of Pompeii has been recreated with astonishing attention to historical accuracy for an epic film about its destruction following the eruption of Vesuvius some 2,000 years ago. Advances in digital technology helped recreate the disaster convincingly and film-makers were also guided experiences of recent tsunamis. British director Paul WS Anderson recruited an army of craftsmen to reproduce every detail, from hand-shaped cobblestones to handmade wall paintings and mosaics, reconstructing buildings with the exact dimensions of those in the actual city. His team spent six years researching Pompeii, imaging the ruins and flying extensively over Vesuvius and other active volcanoes. Hercule : Le premier spot TV du film… ‘I am Herculeeeeees’ !

Très bel été en perspective pour Paramount Pictures, qui aligne Transformers : L’Âge de l’Extinction, Ninja Turtles et… Hercule !

Hercule : Le premier spot TV du film… ‘I am Herculeeeeees’ !

Dans ce premier spot TV, le fils de Zeus lutte contre les plus formidables monstres de la Grèce antique. Le lion de Némée est bluffant de réalisme. En cas d’énorme succès, je me demande si Marvel Studios tentera l’expérience de la mythologie dans une de ses futures productions (Hercule est un personnage à part entière dans les comics). Un Avengers mythologique réunissant des divinités de plusieurs panthéons, Thor en tête, cela vous dirait ? Tout le monde connait la légende d’Hercule et de ses Douze Travaux.
