This story first appeared in the May 2 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. At the Cinemacon convention in March, theater owners whooped and hollered when a chatty Mark Wahlberg took the stage at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The star of Paramount's Transformers: Age of Extinction proclaimed the June tentpole will be the biggest film of 2014. He's probably right: The previous installment in Michael Bay's robot action series, 2011's Transformers: Dark of the Moon, took in $1.12 billion globally -- and that was without Wahlberg. Beyond Transformers, though, the summer prospects are far less clear for several studios.

About 2.8 million people tuned in to Sunday’s Conan O’Brien-hosted MTV Movie Awards, a million fewer viewers (-27%) than last year’s show. The 2013 trophy show clocked 3.8 million total viewers — up compared to previous year’s 3.2 million even though big winner Jennifer Lawrence didn’t show up, and Parks And Recreation’s Aubrey Plaza got thrown out. Those who watched Sunday’s fan-voted awards saw The Hunger Games: Catching Fire cop movie of the year, Mila Kunis hide her baby bump, Zac Efron lose his shirt and Mark Wahlberg score the MTV Generation Award — or, as he called it, the You’re Too Old To Come Back Award — and Eminem and Rihanna doing the TV debut of their hit “The Monster.” Related: Oscar, Schmoscar: MTV Votes ‘Catching Fire’ Best Movie Sunday’s show also was down by double digits in the network’s core 12-34 demographic, pulling a 2.6 compared »

What an odd bit of synchronicity. For the last week, I've had "Step Brothers" sitting on the shelf by the TV in my office and I've been considering watching it again. Finally, as I started getting ready to write a few pieces this afternoon, I threw the film in and hit play. As the first scene started to play, I went back to my e-mail and found a heads-up from Greg Ellwood about a story that just broke regarding the third collaboration between Adam McKay, Will Ferrell, and John C. Reilly. It's safe to say that I am a fan of the combination of McKay and Ferrell. I feel like they have such a great voice when they create characters, and one of the things I like most is seeing how they incorporate other comedy voices into what they do in each new project. For example, in "The Other Guys, »

When it was originally announced that critical pariah Michael Bay was to be directing the big screen incarnation of the nostalgically popular 1980’s vehicular metamorphoses toys The Transformers, it seemed to be the perfect match of artistic vision and material. With large scale auto-centric set-pieces already scattered throughout his CV, recall the spectacular freeway chase from the otherwise ridiculous Bad Boys 2, and a penchant for a genuinely enjoyable sense of infectious fun, evident in apologists favourites such as The Rock and Armageddon, his pyrotechnic pornographic sensibilities would make real the plastic clashes between the Autobots and Decepticons in a way every big kid dreamed of.
A franchise on the verge of Extinction? No chance.
The notion that Age of Extinction is a “reboot” isn’t an altogether welcome one, because for all of the crass, ibuprofen accompanied volume control, and Nuts magazine incarnate issues scattered throughout Revenge of the »

To be perfectly honest, I’m still not exactly sure how I feel about Transformers: Age of Extinction, the fourth entry in Michael Bay’s big, loud and over-the-top franchise. On the one hand, I’ve found myself entertained by each film in the series so far. In fact, I’m not ashamed to admit that I walked out of the movie theatre with a huge grin after watching Bay absolutely level Chicago at the end of Transformers: Dark of the Moon. On the other hand, this fourth entry really does look like more of the same and I’m just not sure if we need another Transformers movie.
Fortunately, not everyone feels the same way, and in an effort to continue building excitement for what will surely be a box-office destroyer, Paramount has released three new stills from the film. They show, for the most part, Mark Wahlberg looking all rough and tough, »

Ready or not, here it comes. "Transformers: Age of Extinction", Michael Bay’s next film about the robots in disguise, is intended to be the first film in a new "Transformers" trilogy. That’s the word from Bay himself. “It’s kind of like a new "Transformers",” he told Entertainment Weekly. “We had three, the first trilogy, and this is going to be the next one.” It’s an interesting development, as the director originally intended to leave the "Transformers" films behind after 2011′s "Dark of the Moon". Bay says he won’t “necessarily” direct the fifth and sixth "Transformers" films, but that’s a softer stance than he’s issued in the past. In other "Transformers" news, a -new "Age of Extinction" TV spot has premiered. Check out the Autobot action and Decepticon destruction in the teaser below: "Transformers: Age of Extinction", starring Mark Wahlberg, hits theaters on »

So the new TV Spot for Transformers: Age of Extinction may have give you some new looks at the Decepticons, Autobots and Dinobots in action, but three new pictures from the film courtesy of Paramount are focused on the film's lead actor, Mark Wahlberg with a blurry hint of Nicola Peltz in one of them. Transformers: Age of Extinction is being looked at as the first film in a whole new trilogy with Michael Bay back in the director's chair, though he's recently said he's not sure if he'll be back for Transformers 5 and 6, but I'm sure Jonathan Liebesman would fit in just nicely if their looking for an obvious replacement. The film finds humanity picking up the pieces following the aftermath of Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Autobots and Decepticons have all but vanished from the face of the planet. However, a group of powerful, ingenious businessman and »

“That’s the thing about the story — it’s a cancer book, a cancer movie, that’s not about cancer,” Woodley told Variety. “It’s about love and it’s about universal messages. It’s a celebration of life.”
The film, adapted from John Green’s novel, is a story about two teens that fall in love after meeting at a cancer support group.
Green said he was truly inspired from the actors’ dedication.
“With characters like that you have to be really authentic and real, and I wanted to bring a sense of authenticity and truth to them,” said Woodley.

So what’s the deal with Michael Bay’s “Transformers: Age Of Extinction”? Is it a reboot or do over now that Shia Labeouf is no longer part of the series? Apparently, the only rebooting Bay is doing is changing leads. The destruction of Chicago at the end of “Transformers: Dark Of The Moon” is still in play in the upcoming sequel, and the outcome of that disaster turned humanity against the Transformers, so now they’re all in hiding. “Optimus has lost all faith in humankind and I’m trying to convince him there is still good in the world and we need to work together,” new star Mark Wahlberg said in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly. Or as Bay says, “[Optimus] has done good for earth, and he’s been f–ked over.” What else is going on in the movie? Well, there’s a gigantic dinobot named Grimlocke, »
