Michael Bay Shows Off Behind-The-Scenes In Latest Transformers: The Last Knight Set Video

8 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With just under a year until the latest in Michael Bay’s billion-dollar franchise hits cinema screens, you’d be forgiven for thinking that we know little about the movie. But, seeing as Bay rarely lets the sun go down without posting a new ‘first look’ pic, or a shakily-filmed piece of footage, we actually know a fair bit about Transformers: The Last Knight.

Through his social media accounts we’ve learned about the latest Decepticon joining the battle and a three-headed beastie that’s potentially one of Megatron’s minions. Now, thanks to this latest piece of sharable media posted to the official Transformers Facebook page, fans can get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at what Bay’s movie sets are truly like:

As you can see from the video above, that ten-minute clip rolled out live last night providing a rather frank look at what it’s like to film a Baybuster. »

Ballers: Renewed for Season 3!

12 hours ago | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

HBO is set to be a baller for the foreseeable future.

The cable network confirmed today that Ballers has been picked up for a third season, with star Dwayne Johnson breaking the news himself on Instagram.

“To all our baller fans out there — Thank You!” the former wrestler wrote in the post, adding:

“Millions of you tune in every week to join us on this crazy journey of chasin’ greatness and dealin’ with life’s pain… and the greatest compliment we always hear from you is that we’re real and authentic.

"Means the world considering how close this character is to my bones.”

Ballers Season 2 premiered earlier this month to 1.6 million total viewers and a 0.8 rating among young adults, numbers on par with its opening season run and placing second for the night only to the season opener of Starz’s Power... among scripted original programs.

Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Ballers’ Renewed for Season 3 on HBO

14 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s comedy “Ballers” has been renewed for a third season at HBO, Variety has confirmed.

Johnson broke the news via his Instagram.

While not necessarily a critical darling, “Ballers” finished out its first season as the network’s most-watched comedy in six years, once viewership from all airings and streaming were tallied. According to HBO, 8.8 million people watched each episode within seven days. The Season 1 finale garnered 1.43 million viewers in Nielsen’s live-plus-same-day count.

In its first two episodes of Season 2, ratings have settled into the 1.3-million range in L+Sd, with a .6 rating in the 18-49 demographic, with 5.7 million having checked out the second season premiere since July 17. While that kind of viewership lift through delayed viewing and streaming could be troublesome for ad-supported networks, since HBO’s business depends on subscribership, when people watch is less important than the mere fact of them watching (and subscribing).

Michael Bay shares image of Onslaught from Transformers: The Last Knight

14 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Michael Bay is returning to the Transformers franchise for a fifth time with Transformers: The Last Knight, and the director has been taking to Twitter to share images of his new cast. Today’s reveal? Onslaught.

Here’s Bay’s tweet:

Nothing can prepare you for Onslaught. #transformers Download hi-res photo: https://t.co/5ALFebRVeP pic.twitter.com/yMTck1i14c

Michael Bay (@michaelbay) July 27, 2016

And here’s the high-res image:

Onslaught is a name that will mean a lot to Transformers fans, as he was the villainous leader of Decepticon group the Combaticons, who would form together to make Bruticus. We’ve seen Bay use the Constructicons to make Devestator in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen – will we see the Combaticons do something similar in Transformers: The Last Knight?

Onslaught Is The Latest Decepticon To Pull In For Transformers: The Last Knight

15 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Nothing can prepare you for the advent of Onslaught, the latest Decepticon to pull in for Transformers: The Last Knight.

Similar to the unveilings of Bumblebee and a revamped Barricade – an armored robot in disguise that appeared to bite the bullet back in the original movie – this first peek at a glimmering Onslaught arrives by way of Michael Bay’s Twitter account. It is, unsurprisingly, a striking image of the lime-green tow truck, which has the words ‘never back down’ scrawled onto its metal exterior.

Here’s a better look at the new Decepticon straight from the horse’s mouth, which is wallpaper worthy if you’re an ardent fan of all things Transformers.

On this day in pop culture history: ‘Purple Rain’ opened in theaters

27 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

32 years ago today, the acting debut of a music icon we lost this year opened in theaters. Audiences were first treated to Purple Rain on July 27, 1984. Purple Rain proved that Prince could be just as captivating in a feature-length film as he was onstage and in music videos. The rock musical debuted a month after the album of the same name hit record stores, giving us such hits as “When Doves Cry,” “Let’s Go Crazy,” and “I Would Die 4 U.” Other notable July 27 happenings in pop culture history; • 1940: Bugs Bunny made his official debut at a screening of the short film A Wild Hare. • 1979: The Amityville Horror opened in theaters. • 1982: Little Shop of Horrors had its Off-Broadway opening at the Orpheum Theatre. The writing team behind the wacky musical, Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, went on to write some of Disney Animation’s most beloved songs. »

Toronto Film Festival 2016: What Films Will Contend For Oscar Gold After Tiff Premieres

26 July 2016 9:05 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Toronto Film Festival, which runs September 8-18, announced its lineup today with a ton of potential Oscar contenders — but it’s not the only showcase that some of them will have in the fall. Tiff has been sensitive of late about Labor Day weekend rival Telluride’s annual panoply of unannounced Oscar contenders. However, the two film events work in concert, as the earlier well-curated festival — attended by a small coterie of influencers — builds buzz for the later, sprawling Tiff, with its larger mass of junket media, including the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which votes on the Golden Globes.

Check Out This 'Transformers: The Last Knight' Set Video!

21 July 2016 11:52 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

There's a reason why Transformers movies do so well at the box office. Yes, they pretty much fail on all story and character fronts, but more than anything, those films are built on spectacle. If you're in love with explosions, fluid and beautiful cinematography, and topnotch visual effects, these films are probably up your alley, if nothing else than to feel that rush of adrenaline from each action scene.

Of course, the man behind the camera, Michael Bay, is synonymous with explosions and crowd-pleasing action. Even if you thoroughly dislike every aspect of the Transformers movies, it's hard to argue against his mastery of the Hollywood spectacle. With that in mind, it's any visual effects junkie's dream to get a peek behind the scenes of such films, and the studio understands that fact. As such, they've taken to Facebook to post a behind-the-scenes look at a car chase and explosion »

‘Looking’ Review: Filmmaker Andrew Haigh Should Stick To Indies

20 July 2016 11:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Ever since the gay television swell of the early to mid-aughts, viewers have been looking to the fill void left by “The L Word,” “Will & Grace” and “Queer as Folk.” Sadly, “Looking” leaves them still looking. Andrew Haigh’s HBO series (which only lasted two seasons) deliberately eschewed the fabulousness of those beloved shows, instead aiming for the unstructured writing and hipster ennui of “Girls.” In his eagerness to distinguish the series from its natural predecessors, Haigh strayed too far from his own voice, so clearly defined in his acclaimed feature films “Weekend” and “45 Years.”

HBO may have been betting that Haigh could conjure some of the magic of those films for his feature-length take on “Looking.” Unfortunately, the film only plays like an epilogue to the series, resurrecting its hunky characters just so viewers can ogle them a bit longer.

Transformers: The Last Knight Set Video Showcases Paramount’s Robots In Disguise

20 July 2016 9:46 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If Universal has a stranglehold on the tail-end of the week with Fast Fridays, Tuesdays are traditionally the day when Paramount’s Transformers franchise takes center stage on social platforms.

And sure enough, just yesterday the studio pumped out an all-new set video for Transformers: The Last Knight, Michael Bay’s 2017 blockbuster that represents a defining turning point in the franchise. That’s because, early on in development, Paramount formed a writers room with the sole intention of pumping new blood into its box office juggernaut, eventually mapping out plans for new sequels through 2019.

The Last Knight will get the ball rolling in June of next year, followed swiftly by a rumored Bumblebee spinoff in 2018 and a new, as-yet-untitled sequel the following year.
