Hercules: Dwayne Johnson, aka the Rock, has been sharing photos from the production of Hercules, the big-budget action movie that's shooting under the direction of Brett Ratner in Europe, and his latest picture showcases one of the sets itself: "Our Hercules set created by award winning designer Jean-Vincent Puzos w/ great detail," he tweeted. "I sit in awe." The movie is due out in theaters on July 25, 2014. [Coming Soon]

The Human Voice: Academy Award winner and legendary beauty Sophia Loren is returning to the big screen for the first time since 2009's Nine, and for her first starring role in almost 10 years.

White House Down: Roland Emmerich's thriller White House Down may have underperformed at the box office, but that did not deter more than 100,000 active and veteran members of the military services from seeing the movie for free on July 4. Sony Pictures announced the offer last Tuesday, which allowed individuals with a military ID and a guest to attend, without charge. [The Wrap / CNN]

Snowpiercer Trailer: Holy cow, this is great! The first trailer for Snowpiercer, a futuristic action picture starring Chris Evans that is set on board a speeding train, was intriguing, but a newer trailer is flat-out thrilling. The movie will be opening in theaters in Korea on August 1; it was directed by Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho, probably best known for monster movie The Host. Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Ed Harris and Octavia Spencer also star; we're still waiting for the Weinstein Co. to announce a U.S. release date. [The Film Stage]
