Even though the movie hasn’t been officially announced by Warner Bros yet, the rumored Shazam film has its first cast member. After months of speculation, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has finally confirmed he’ll be playing the supervillain Black Adam in the Shazam DC Comics property. “Kneel at his feet or get crushed by his boot.” My honor to become.. #BlackAdam #TheAntiHero #DCComics,” the 42-year-old actor tweeted.

For the second straight year, Robert Downey, Jr tops Forbes Highest Paid Actors list. The 49-year-old actor leads the pack with an astonishing $75 million earned between June 2013 and June 2014. Coincidentally, the Iron Man star earned the same amount on the 2013 list.

Channing Tatum who took the runner-up slot last year lands nowhere on the 2014 Top 10 list. Taking his place is Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson with $52 million, jumping from fifth place with $46 million last year. Rounding out the top three is Bradley Cooper with $46 million.

The lone Avenger to accompany Downey, Jr. on the 2014 list is Chris Hemsworth with $37 million. I’m a little surprised Chris Evans didn’t make the cut, when Will Smith did. When was the last time the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air starred in a hit movie? Check out the rest of the Top 10 below.

Kellan Lutz’s turn as the demi-god in The Legend of Hercules didn’t exactly break box office records. In actuality it was a huge bomb. The $70 million film earned only $18 million domestically and another $25.6 million internationally. With a reported $100 million budget, Dwayne Johnson better hope his fans come out in droves to watch Hercules: The Thracian Wars. It’s a little odd seeing The Rock sporting flowing locks, but I will say, the beard suits him nicely.

In this version, Brett Ratner takes over directing duties. Having endured his legendary twelve labors, Hercules, the Greek demigod, has his life as a sword-for-hire tested when the King of Thrace and his daughter seek his aid in defeating a tyrannical warlord.

Based on first impression Ratner’s revisionist take already looks better than the one directed by Renny Harlin. Rounding out the cast are Rufus Sewell, Ian McShane, Irina Shayk and John Hurt. In addition to portraying Hercules, Johnson also plays Zeus and Achilles. I guess with such a huge budget, producers had to cut corners in some areas. Check out the trailer below. The film opens July 25, 2014.

forbes-top-grossing-actors-2013

Iron Man 3 is the highest-grossing movie so far in 2013 with $1.2 billion in worldwide ticket sales. With those kind of receipts, one would think it’s star Robert Downey, Jr. would easily take the crown on Forbes Highest-Grossing list. It’s only a natural conclusion. Unfortunately for him, Robert only starred in one film the entire year. Sneaking past him to steal the title was someone who starred in four films. Here’s a little hint. It’s someone from the Fast and The Furious franchise.

Before we get to the winner, I just wanted to commend both Sandra Bullock and Jennifer Lawrence for breaking into the male-dominated Top 10. Bullock knocked out the competition with her one-two punch of Gravity and The Heat, while Lawrence hit the bullseye with Silver Linings Playbook and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Check out the Top 10 below. In addition to the top slot, there are a couple of other surprises. At least for me, there was.

All is not completely hopeless for Lindsay Lohan. If she’s ever in doubt about making a legitimate comeback, all she needs to do is look at Robert Downey Jr. for inspiration. There once was a time when the 48-year-old actor was considered damaged goods after a string of drug arrests, rehab stints and box office bombs. Now, he’s Forbes Highest-Paid Actor In Hollywood based on earnings from June 2012 til June 2013.

According to the publication, Downey Jr. raked in an astonishing $75 million over the past year. A massive sum bolstered by gigantic blockbuster hits like The Avengers and Iron Man 3. Both of those movies made over $1 billion at the international box office.

Coming in second place is everyone’s favorite former stripper turned Hollywood A-lister, Channing Tatum. The 33-year-old new dad’s runner up status was buoyed by the success of Magic Mike. Since he self-financed the flick, he laughed all the way to the bank with most of the film’s profits. Check out the rest of the Top 10 below. There’s a couple of surprises including Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson making the cut.

Liam Hemsworth sure is one busy boy these days. The Aussie actor has four films being released in 2013. While The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Paranoia are more highly-anticipated, Empire State looks like a solid film in its own right. The action thriller is based on a true story about a 1982 robbery of New York’s Sentry Armored Car Courier Company where $11 million was reportedly stolen.

The 23-year-old actor plays Chris Potamitis, a wannabe police officer turned bank robber, in the flick. When a colleague at the armored car company (Empire) is killed on the job, his childhood friend (Michael Angarano) and him turn to a life of crime and plan to rob an armored car depository of millions. Hot on their trail is Dwyane Johnson, an NYPD detective circling Hemsworth as a prime suspect. Also starring in the film are Emma Roberts (Scream 4), Nikki Reed (Twilight) and Shenae Grimes (90210). Check out the first trailer below.

The first trailer for a new action film called Snitch has just been released, telling a story that is inspired by true events that were actually chronicled in a PBS Frontline documentary.

The film stars Dwayne Johnson as a devoted father whose teenage son is wrongly accused of a drug distribution crime and is looking at a mandatory minimum prison sentence of 10 years and up to 30 years in total. Desperate to save his son and do whatever it takes to do so, he makes a deal with the U.S. Attorney to work as an undercover informant and infiltrate a drug cartel on a very dangerous mission. Needless to say, in doing so he risks everything in the process.

Every since “The Rock” started going by Dwayne Johnson, his movie roles have gotten better and now he’s starring in a pretty serious role alongside Susan Surandon. Nice job! The film hits theatres on February 22, 2013. Check out the trailer below.
