Exclusive! How To Train Your Dragon 2: Kit Harington’s Biceps, Gerard Butler’s Burly Singing

Published

on

Comedy, love and heart … The perfect recipe for a successful second installment of How To Train Your Dragon. Hiccup and family are back for another epic journey of dragon riding, friendships and fire breathing.

“There’s beautiful relationships all throughout the movie that I think really have a universal appeal,” Gerard Butler told HipHollywood during a recent interview to talk about the film. Craig Ferguson, who plays the voice of Gobber, added, “You get to see how much our characters care for each other through tragic events.”

And … out with the abs and with the biceps, we are seeing a new side of Game of Thrones star, Kit Harington. The actor is making his first splash in the world of animation, lending his voice to Dreamworks forthcoming sequel as a hunky dragon catcher. Harington’s animated character didn’t showcase rock hard abs, rather … Some of the biggest biceps we’ve ever seen.

“It was one of the most amazing shots in the whole thing, the moving biceps,” Kit told us.

Also lending his voice to the film, Djimon Hounsou, who plays the voice of villain, Drago. HipHollywood caught up with the actor who expressed how surprisingly difficult it was to deliver voice over.

“For me at first it felt a little clinical,” Hounsou explained. “It was just you and the mic, you are not interacting with any other characters. You find a new freedom of interpretation.”

From good looking characters, to impressive singing by Gerard Butler, the film is an absolute must see.

How To Train Your Dragon 2 hits theaters June 13.

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”

Published

It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
