There is only one person in Hollywood fit to play a ruggedly handsome ship captain who is forced to fight for his life when an inexplicably angry whale decides to make his life a living hell—and that person is Chris Hemsworth. Pretty (but not too pretty), tough (but no too threatening), and recognizable (without being too expensive), his casting makes ‘In the Heart of the Sea’ all the more interesting, because it’s hard to imagine very many other actors not looking totally ridiculous in new trailer. He really is a 19th century ship’s captain for the 21st century.

Not too long ago, Disney put a live-action 'Jungle Book' movie into development with Jon Favreau set to the direct for an October 9, 2015 release. However, because moviegoers were so clearly pining for two live-action 'Jungle Books' (that's sarcasm), another one is coming from Warner Bros., and the film is eyeing 'Rush' helmer Ron Howard for the director's chair.

Released in 1984, 'Splash' tells the story of Allen (Tom Hanks), a guy who was recently dumped and encounters a beautiful mermaid and promptly falls in love with her. But, of course, there's a catch: after six days of staying on land as a human, she'll have to make a choice to stay on land forever, or return to being a mermaid. It's been almost 30 years since Ron Howard's classic film hit theaters, and today we take a look back at the director and cast of the film to see what they're up to now.

'Rush' Review

Ron Howard's 'Rush' is over two straight hours of lionizing F1 drivers as though they were Gods who ride among us. That aspect is demeaning and insufferable. But the thing is, 'Rush' is a good enough movie on its merits that I pretty much enjoyed it. If you are one who enjoys racing, I can only imagine how you'll react. (Perhaps you should wear a bib for all the drooling.)

Though Dan Brown's reign as the king of airplane reading may be over, his Robert Langdon books produced two very successful movies. So it's no surprise that Brown's 'Inferno' is being adapted for the big screen, with Tom Hanks returning as Langdon, and with Ron Howard directing, and has been set for a December 2015 release.

How do you manage to get people who normally couldn't care less about racing interested in a Formula One movie? You cast Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl as dueling drivers, of course! Based on the true rivalry between racers James Hunt and Niki Lauda, Ron Howard's 'Rush' is shaping up to be one of the most interesting releases coming this Fall and the newest trailer only has us more interested.

If 'Fast and Furious 6' doesn't satisfy your need for speed, there's another high-octane racing film on its way this year - the Formula 1 set pic 'Rush' starring 'Thor' himself, Chris Hemsworth. While it may not have as much action as 'Fast and Furious,' it looks like it's trying to offer something up a little more dramatic. Is it successful? Let's watch the 'Rush' trailer and find out.
