Most of us understand that as we age, it's important to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. Go for a jog (or a "yog" if you're Ron Burgundy) once in a while. Maybe opt for a salad sometimes instead of a few slices of pizza. If you work at a desk, perhaps you make sure you walk around your office for five minutes every hour. Feel that burn.
Then there are others who take that notion to extreme lengths, who hear "maintain a healthy and active lifestyle" and think "lift enough weights every day of my life to tear a horse in half with my bare hands and have a laughing fit in its blood." Get More »
"Olympus Has Fallen" hits theaters this weekend and if you've seen the trailers, well, it might look just a little familiar to you. Gerard Butler plays a disgraced Secret Service agent who finds himself trapped inside the White House when it's overrun by terrorists. Armed only with courage and, well, a gun, he wages a one-man war to save the President — and America itself.
One used to take us for a wild ride down Know Your Role Boulevard and Jabroni Drive before he checked us in at the Smackdown Hotel. The other is cast in Susan Sarandon movies.
One had his own theme music that strangers sang along to as he entered various American arenas. The other pretends to race cars with Vin Diesel.
One frequently knocked out his scantily-clad colleagues by landing on them with his elbow. The other has probably never done that ... at least not in any kind of official capacity. Get More »
The last time you saw Jon Bernthal, he was probably hunting a zombie. In the new movie "Snitch," however, the "The Walking Dead" star is hunting for justice alongside Dwayne Johnson (known to most as The Rock). Johnson portrays a man who won't stop at any means to free his son, unjustly imprisoned on drug charges, and Bernthal is one of the many he meets along the way.
NextMovie caught up with Bernthal ahead of "Snitch"'s release to ask a few questions about breaking promises, being intimidated by The Rock and which action movie heroes would win in a fight. Get More »
He's walked tall, been cool and felt the need for speed in "Faster" and "Fast Five." Now, 2013 is truly the Year of the Rock, with the WWE Champion appearing in no less than five feature films.
We begin this week with the release of "Snitch," in which he plays the greatest dad in the world. Five weeks later, he'll be fighting for freedom in the "G.I. Joe" sequel (March 29), and four weeks after that he'll be robbing from the rich in Michael Bay's "Pain and Gain." (April 26). That's not all — four weeks after that, he'll be feeling that need for speed again with "Fast & Furious 6" (May 24). You'd think he'd take a vacation after all that, but no, he'll also be investigating an armored car heist in "Empire State," which will probably hit theaters this fall.
Let's get the Year started with hotness, shall we?
If you're ever thrown in the slammer for a drug deal you had nothing to do with, you'd better hope your dad is The Rock.
Dwayne Johnson (who's apparently now old enough to have a teenage son, which kind of freaks us out) stars as a construction worker who volunteers to go undercover into the dangerous world of drug trafficking in order to reduce his son's prison sentence in "Snitch" (which obviously isn't the sequel to "Snatch," as you may have thought upon first hearing the title).

Dwayne Johnson is going to see what else is out there besides giant electrical eels and super-advanced submarines.
The "Fast Five" star is in talks to continue replacing Brendan Fraser in the third installment of the incredibly successful "Journey" series of sci-fi adventure films, according to The Wrap. Get More »
Rob Corddry knows a little something about pain. After all, the one-time "Daily Show" correspondent now spends his time (sort of) helping sick (pretend) kids on the Cartoon Network comedy "Childrens Hospital."
But now he's about to experience pain on an entirely different level courtesy of none other than ... Michael Bay?!
Michael Bay and his blow-'em-up extravaganzas are famous for both pain (for the Decepticons) and gain (at the box office), but never quite like this before.
News of his next project, "Pain and Gain," popped up last summer during his press interviews for "Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon" in Moscow, but it's such a strange choice for Bay that it sounded more like his ushanka was on too tight at the time. Based on a series of 1999 Miami New Times articles of the same name, "Pain and Gain" is being pegged as a dark comedy about two body builders knee-deep in crime. Get More »
Who would you trust to teach you how to survive against unnatural beasts? You'd trust The Rock, that's who.
Dwayne Johnson will take on the supernatural world for the first time since 2005's "Doom" (if you don't count "The Tooth Fairy" or "Race to Witch Mountain") as he's signed on to star in "Monster Hunter's Survival Guide," according to Deadline.
"Monster" is based on the comic book miniseries by John Paul Russ, a comprehensive guide on how to hunt monsters -- and, more importantly, how to survive such confrontations. Get More »
