Ridley Scott has revealed how he would bring Maximus back from the dead in a sequel to Gladiator. In the director’s Oscar-winning epic, Russell Crowe’s brave General Maximus survives his betrayal and attempted murder at the hands of Joaquin Phoenix’s scheming Commodus and is metaphorically resurrected as a gladiatorial warrior who rises to become even more popular than the emperor. Maximus goes on to seek revenge against Commodus and ultimately dies in the arena, but not before triumphing over the man who killed his family and destroyed his life.

With just under two months left until The Mummy is awakened in theaters this June, the worldwide promo tour is about to begin for the Alex Kurtzman directed film. A week ago we brought word that select cast members would be heading to Sydney, Australia for the May 22nd premiere of The Mummy and now today we have word on yet another location. Universal has confirmed that The Mummy will receive a red carpet premiere in London, following the Taiwan premiere on May 25th. The London premiere will be held at the Odeon Cinema in Leicaster Square in England on Thursday, June 1st. Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella, Annabelle Wallis, and director Alex Kurtzman are expected to attend the June 1st premiere after The Mummy premieres in Sydney and Taiwan.

As of right now, additional cast members such as Jake Johnson, Marwan Kenzari, Courtney B. Vance, and Russell Crowe have not been confirmed, however, Mr. Crowe will appear at the May 22nd premiere in Sydney.

We now know that Syndney, Australia is the first international stop for the cast and crew of The Mummy, with Taiwan following. During press day last week, director Alex Kurtzman confirmed a Mexico premiere for his Universal Monsters film. Additional premieres will be held in the United States.

Ahead of taking to the stage in the Melbourne Theatre Company’s Macbeth, actor Jai Courtney reveals how he earned Russell Crowe’s approval and why Aussies stick together in Hollywood.

When you first met Russell Crowe a few years ago, he told you that you’d been doing some terrible movies. If he saw your résumé now would it be up to his standards?

(Laughs.) He didn’t say terrible, but he did take the piss out of me a little bit. He was poking fun and trying to get a rise out of me to see what I was made of, and working with someone like Russell, you’ve got to be on your toes. That was probably, in a strange way, my first audition with him. If that conversation had gone down really awkwardly, I’m not sure he would’ve wanted to work with me. So we had a laugh and a drink, and before long we were getting ready to do a movie (The Water Diviner) together. That was a dream come true for me.

Spoilers if you haven’t seen GLADIATOR, which, by the way, isn’t too far off from celebrating its twentieth anniversary. How’s that for making you feel old. Back in 2000, Ridley Scott’s historical epic told the story of Maximus (Russell Crowe), a Roman General who found himself reduced to slavery when Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix), the power hungry son of Emperor Marcus Aurelius (Richard Harris), betrayed him and seized control of Rome by murdering his own father. The film was a huge success at the time and even took home a few prestigious awards, including Best Picture and Best Actor at the 73rd Academy Awards.

SOUTH Sydney co-owner and Hollywood star Russell Crowe has given a Gladiator-like thumbs down to critics already dismissing his side’s premiership prospects.

A heavy round one loss to Wests Tigers and a controversial six-month knee injury to superstar fullback Greg Inglis has prompted many to write off Crowe’s Rabbitohs, who face rivals Manly in a crucial game this Saturday night at Brookvale.

There was a famous New Yorker cartoon called The Critic, a stage-eye-view of the audience laughing their butts off at something, and a glowering man sitting front row centre.

It’s a vibe not confined to critics, but to all the participants of awards season – a.k.a. the season for serious movies. And while I applaud that, for a limited time only, we have something to watch besides superheroes, it’s too bad comedies aren’t taken more seriously.

Awards season is upon us, and the Peach State’s film critics have named their favorite movies and performances from 2016.

The Georgia Film Critics Association has handed out awards in categories much like the Oscars since it was founded in 2011 by CAmeron McAllister, marketing director for the Atlanta Film Society. The organization, which includes critics from various publications across the state, including Atlanta Business Chronicle contributor Eleanor Ringel Cater, was a big fan of nostalgic musical “La La Land” and “Moonlight,” which both won multiple awards.

It also gave “The Nice Guys,” which filmed in Georgia and stars Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe, the Oglethorpe Award for Excellence in Georgia Cinema.

“It surprised me when I was tabulating the votes,” McAllister said. “I don’t think ‘The Nice Guys’ will see any Oscar love, but it’s a really good film with a smart screenplay.”

Next up with have the very talented Hollywood superstar Russell Crowe, who took on the role of Robin Hood in the 2010 Ridley Scott movie, which was simply titled Robin Hood. Unfortunately we did not really get into this version of Robin Hood quite as much as we did previous movies, although it was good to see that Russell was willing to have a go at a much more realistic Robin Hood accent, although many people felt he sounded ridiculous.
