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. It’s the lesbian couple trying to make it work one last time, »

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.

More News From The Web

-->

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. Ambitious though that may be, Transformers is one of the very few cinematic franchises that continues to muscle its way past »

The 50 Best Sci-Fi Films of the 21st Century Thus Far

19 July 2016 10:56 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In a medium founded on expanding one’s imagination and perception of reality, no genre does it better than science fiction. We’ve come a long way from the days when Georges Méliès took us to the moon, for today’s filmmakers look far beyond our universe and into the deepest corners of our soul to reflect the current society.

With the latest entry in the Star Trek franchise arriving in theaters this week, we’ve set out to reflect on the millennium’s sci-fi films that have most excelled. To note: we only stuck with feature-length works of 60 minutes or longer and, to make room for a few more titles, our definition of “the 21st century” stretched to include 2000.

Check out our top 50 below and let us know your favorites in the comments. We’ve also put the list on Letterboxd to keep track of how many you’ve seen. »

USA Network has pushed the premiere of its new Ryan Phillippe action series “Shooter” again – this time to fall.

This represents the second time “Shooter” has been delayed. The show was originally scheduled to premiere on July 19, but was pushed back to July 27 in the wake of recent shootings, including the attack on police in Dallas.

But now with additional shootings dominating headlines, including the most recent Baton Rouge police killings, the network and studios Paramount TV and Universal Cable Productions have decided the climate isn’t right this summer for the show.

Mark Wahlberg Says the NFL Pushed Back Against ‘Ballers,’ Telling Him ‘You Can’t Do This’

18 July 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the NFL doesn’t count itself among the fans of “Ballers.” Mark Wahlberg, who serves as an executive producer on the sports-themed HBO dramedy starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, said during an appearance on Espn’s “Mike & Mike” that he’s received several complaints from the league, as well as assertions that “You can’t do this.”

‘Shooter’ Premiere Moved to Fall by USA

18 July 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

USA Network has moved the premiere of drama series “Shooter” to fall. The move comes as gun violence has overtaken the news, with deadly shootings in Orlando, Minnesota, Baton Rouge and Dallas generating intense media scrutiny and in some cases sparking protests nationwide.

Production on the series, currently being filmed in Santa Clarita, Calif., will continue uninterrupted, signaling that USA remains committed to airing the show. No specific premiere date has yet been set.

Shooter” stars Ryan Phillippe as a sniper and U.S. military veteran who attempts to clear his name after being wrongly accused of a crime. The series had originally been scheduled to premiere July 19, but was pushed last week to July 26 following the murder of five police officers by a sniper in Dallas.

“In light of recent tragic events and out of respect for the victims, their families and our viewers, we have decided to postpone the premiere date for the upcoming USA Network »

Ballers is largely considered a hit among football fans - but according to executive producer Mark Wahlberg, the NFL itself wasn't too happy about the show. Calling into Espn's Mike & Mike on Friday, Wahlberg opened up about complaints he first received about the HBO series, saying he fielded calls from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell as well as team owners.

‘Ballers’ Season 2 Premiere: Dwayne Johnson’s Return Rocks, But Doesn’t Ball Super Hard

17 July 2016 7:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Few shows are as hyper-focused on masculinity as “Ballers.” The Stephen Levinson-created HBO comedy looks at life as a professional football player — and what happens when you stop playing. While ostensibly an ensemble, the show’s ensemble is led by Dwayne Johnson, whose portrayal of financial manager Spencer Strasmore provides unique insight into the pride and power that drives a certain type of man.

In the Season 2 premiere “Face of the Franchise,” Spencer’s clients tackle negotiating new contracts — in the case of Ricky (John David Washington) — and the realization that their new gig might not be as stable as promised, unfortunately for Charles (Omar Benson Miller).

But really what matters is this…

Your prototypical baller will typically devote an equal split of his time to professional baller-ing and personal baller-ing. But in “Face of the Franchise, »

‘Vice Principals’ Review Roundup: Critics Give Danny McBride’s New HBO a Passing Grade, but It Doesn’t Make Honor Roll

17 July 2016 1:59 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Danny McBride has made his HBO return in “Vice Principals,” but the reviews haven’t exactly been triumphant so far. Indiewire’s Ben Travers begins his by noting that anyone enamored of “Eastbound & Down” (which was likewise co-created by McBride and Jody Hill) “will be pleased if not ecstatic” with the new comedy co-starring Walton Goggins, though he himself is “on the fence” after six episodes.

Most others are similarly lukewarm. One exception is the A.V. Club‘s Danette Chavez, who gives the show an A- and writes that, “while the profanity reliably reaches virtuosic levels, it rarely does so at the cost of more meaningful discussion. What Hill and McBride end up with, after the LSD-laced shenanigans, is as much a meditation on disillusionment with life as it is a clash of would-be titans. »

‘Shooter’ Review: Ryan Phillippe USA Network Series Misses Mark

15 July 2016 6:12 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Originally set to debut July 19, Shooter was postponed a week by USA Network after the tragic and fatal July 7 shooting in Dallas. That was the right thing to do, but from what I’ve seen the NBCUniversal-owned cabler might want to consider just not putting this terrible show on the air at all. Starring Ryan Phillippe and based on the Mark Wahlberg-starring 2007 pic of the same name, the 10-episode Shooter that now premieres July 26 is tired, full of stock situations, and… »

Naughty Dog Dev Presents Status Report On The Last Of Us And Uncharted Movies

15 July 2016 1:45 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Duncan JonesWarcraft: The Beginning and Assassin’s Creed not only stand tall as two of the biggest releases of 2016, but they’re also among the most high-profile video game adaptations in film history, sparking a resurgence in the game-to-movies practice that has already birthed renditions of Splinter Cell and the Alicia Vikander-fronted Tomb Raider.

Beyond that, though, two video game adaptations that continue to simmer on the brink of development can be traced back to developer Naughty Dog. Held up as cinematic masterpieces, over the years there has been mooted talk of both Uncharted and The Last of Us gracing the silver screen, and despite both projects displaying early signs of promise – Mark Wahlberg was attached to the former; Game of Thrones starlet Maisie Williams circled the latter – both films have effectively been placed on ice.

Don’t expect that to change anytime soon, either, after Naughty Dog »
