The 70-year-old veteran producer has been looking to secure a new home for his movie releases since October, when Disney opted not to renew his deal beyond this year.
“Jerry Bruckheimer is one of the most creative and prolific producers in motion picture history,” said Paramount Pictures Chairman and CEO Brad Grey. “His signature style has attracted huge global audiences and we are thrilled to have him back in the Paramount family.”
“It is great to be back at Paramount. I look forward to working with Brad Grey and his entire team,” said Bruckheimer.
Bruckheimer had been in discussions with several studios, including Sony Pictures and Warner Bros., »

Last week, Michael Bay was said to have "apologised" for the previous instalments in the Transformers franchise, with a report quoting the director as stating that: "I wanted the first Transformers to be very suburban and less cool. This is a much more cinematic one. I focused on keeping this one slick. There won’t be any goofiness in this one. We went a bit too goofy [on Transformers: Dark of the Moon]." However, according to the man himself, his quotes were taken out of context and he's now taken the opportunity to set the record straight, as well as announcing that filming has wrapped on the fourth instalment, Transformers: Age of Extinction....
I Do Not Apologize For Any Transformers Movies

Michael Bay has responded angrily to reports that he had “apologised” for elements of the Transformers films, and has clarified his comments on the visual style of the new film. “No I did not ‘apologise’ for any of the Transformers movies,” says Bay on his official blog. “I did not say I shot the last three movies ‘less cool’ than the new fourth instalment.” “I was talking specifically about camera style and tone, of the first movie compared to how I shot the new instalment with a very big scale, cinematic style.” “I was very...

Production has now wrapped on next summer's fourth Transformers movie, with Michael Bay confirming that the five and a half month shoot has come to an end. The shoot has covered the Us, China and Hong Kong, and Bay is now embarking on a length post-production period.
Anyway, he's taken to his website to deny reports that he'd apologised for previous Transformers movies, and that he shot the last three "less cool" than the new one. He explained in a post on his website that "it is a drag talking to reporters on sets. Why? Because often times they take your words and skew things to their liking".
Bay went on to reveal that work is also underway on putting together a first promo for the film. "I »
Where else would you expect Michael Bay to begin teasing his fourth Transformers movie, Age of Extinction? In an official post on MichaelBay.com, the director tells followers that he has "completed our five and a half month shoot," and is currently "working hard cutting the movie right now." To that end, Bay said on the site: I think the first piece comes out for the Super Bowl and a teaser right after that." Makes sense. Paramount has the fourth Transformers movie slotted into a June 27, 2014 release date. Major studios typically use the Super Bowl as a platform for their upcoming summer blockbusters. And you can bet Bay.s crowd will be dialed in to the big game. Hitting them with the first Age of Extinction teaser seems only natural. For once, I.ll be very excited to see what Bay has to show. We know next to nothing about »
Director Michael Bay posted on his blog that he doesn’t regret or apologize for any of the Transformers movies he has done. Seems like a few weeks ago it was reported that he said the other Transformer movies were “Less Cool” than the others. But what I found interesting was when can get a first glimpse of the trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction.
Also I understand where Bay is coming from, about journalists taking your words and skew things to their liking. But Bay also says that “Its a drag talking to reporters on sets”. Really? Then why even have set visits?
Here is what Bay had to say:

While the cloak of secrecy which surrounded Michael Bay’s fourth Transformers movie appears to have lifted in the past few months, the film’s function as a partial reboot for the series is still somewhat convoluted. At any rate, Transformers: Age of Extinction is Bay’s attempt to be “less goofy,” as the director has stated. Recent set images and plot details reinforce Bay’s focus on “keeping this one slick.”
As for what we know of the plot: inventor Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg, apparently not playing anyone named Flynn Vincent) accidentally unearths a buried Transformer in the wake of the devastation of Chicago which occurred in Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Old favorites like Optimus Prime ...

‘Nymphomaniac’ ‘sexually explicit’ red band trailer shown at ‘Frozen’ screening in Florida? Horror Non-News Story of the Year (image: Shia Labeouf in ‘Nymphomaniac’ poster) A "sexually explicit" scene was accidentally shown to adults and children attending a screening of Disney’s Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee-directed box office hit Frozen, which features the voices of Kristen Bell and Josh Gad. Well, at least that’s reportedly what happened at Regal Cinemas Park Place Stadium 16 in Pinellas Park, Florida. Now, first of all, bear in mind that "sexually explicit" movie content frequently refers to movie sex that’s anything but explicit. It’s just (sexually repressed?) people with lots of (kinky?) imagination, seeing body parts that aren’t quite there. (See also: “‘Nymphomaniac’ Shia Labeouf sex scene photo teaser.”) Anyhow, due to "technical difficulties," before Frozen was to have provided some Family Friendly Fun, the theater decided to show a Mickey Mouse cartoon, »

Last week, we reported that director Michael Bay wanted a "less goofy" tone for Transformers: Age of Extinction, while saying that his first three movies were "less cool." The filmmaker took to his official website to set the record straight about these comments, while also revealing that principal photography is now complete, and that we might see a TV spot during the Super Bowl.
Take a look at his full statement.
"It is a drag talking to reporters on sets. Why? Because often times they take your words and skew things to their liking. Then the crazy, lazy game of reporting on what other writers story's reported me saying and suddenly it becomes skewed Internet truth. So I waste my time to restate exactly what I did say, again.
No I did not 'apologize' for any Transformers movies. I did not say I shot the last three movies "less cool" than the new fourth installment. »
It's been well over a year since we've had anything to report about Universal's Ouija, based on the popular Hasbro board game. Finally the spirits are talking to us again. Read on for the first casting announcement!
"The Secret Life of the American Teenager" star Daren Kagasoff has just signed on for a role in the flick, reports Deadline. The young actor will play Trevor, a man who is skeptical about reaching out to the dead.
Written and directed by Stiles White and Juliet Snowden (Boogeyman, The Possession), the film follows a group of teens playing with a Ouija board, making contact with an evil spirit, and desperately trying to close the door they’ve opened before meeting their own fate.
Producing will be Jason Blum through his Blumhouse Prods. shingle, Michael Bay through his Platinum Dunes banner along with Platinum partners Andrew Form and Brad Fuller. Hasbro president-ceo Brian Goldner »

Despite saying last summer that “Transformers: Age Of Extinction” would be his last at-bat, it seems Michael Bay’s having a great time on set and may have changed his mind about walking away from the hugely successful franchise. And he may not be alone in continuing the saga of giant robots and rampant product placement. In an interesting roundtable discussion THR held with some notable producers behind awards contenders (watch the whole thing here), Mark Wahlberg talked about the difficulties of signing up actors and renegotiating as a franchise gets successful. While the actor-producer at first explained all the problems getting the “Entourage” movie off the ground—“Everybody’s saying it was all about money. It wasn’t, necessarily”—he also talked about his own experiences as an actor at the mercy of other producers, saying “You know ‘Transformers,’ I definitely had to sign up for three. Does that mean we’ll make three? »

Production is now complete on Michael Bay's Transformers: Age of Extinction ! The first footage from the June 27, 2014 release is, according to a new post on Bay's official site, set to hit during the Super Bowl on February 2. Bay's post, which you can read below in its entirety, also makes of point of countering some recent gossip regarding the director's alleged comments about the franchise. As Bay explains, he is very proud of all four Transformers films. It is a drag talking to reporters on sets. Why? Because often times they take your words and skew things to their liking?

Update: Ouija is back from the dead. Michael Bay is still producing and the first actor was cast today. In the story, a gruop of teens try to contact their dead friend with a Ouija board but contact a very, very evil spirit. "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" star Daren Kagasoff will play Trevor, who doesn't think trying to connect with the dead friend's spirit is a good idea. Juliet Snowden and Stiles White wrote and will co-direct, they co-wrote The Possession and the Nicolas Cage movie Knowing.
Aug. 25, 2011 - Ouija has been scrapped by Universal, allowing producer Michael Bay to shop the film elsewhere. Fandango reports that he already took it to Paramount (where he's made over $1 billion this year alone with Transformers 3) and they said no. In this case, we can safely assume that it supersucks because Paramount definitely owes Bay one. Universal's original multipicture deal »

We recently brought you some new images from Michael Bay's Transformers: Age of Extinction, but now we can pair them with some commentary from the director himself. Bay talked about the level of "goofiness" from his last foray into the Transformers universe and how the fourth film will depart from that in a more cinematic direction. Stars Mark Wahlberg and Nicola Peltz also talk about their experience working with Bay from the set of the fourth film in the franchise. Hit the jump to see what they all had to say. The film also stars Kelsey Grammer, Stanley Tucci, T.J. Miller, Titus Welliver, Han Geng, Sophia Myles, and Li Bingbing. Transformers: Age of Extinction opens in theaters on June 27, 2014.

Michael Bay loves to shoot action like one would assume he does most things: hard and fast. It’s just part of the aura of Bayhem to do things not just over-the-top, but in a manner that exudes maximum bravado. It’s why it’s hard to not envy the guy’s commitment to his own style — he sure doesn’t make it easy on himself. And in this newly uncovered exclusive clip from the Special Collector’s Edition Blu-ray of Pain & Gain, which hits shelves this week, Bay shows how he made capturing muscly Mark Wahlberg hard on his camera crew and his editing team with an assortment of camera formats, styles, placements and techniques. It’s as beautiful as it is terrifying in an indulgent way. See for yourself just after the jump.

This week, James considers the impact of film sequels, and comes up with a few he'd like to see himself. Robot & Frank Rises, anyone?
"So, when do we start shooting the next one?" - Every major movie studio executive on the Monday following a bumper opening weekend at the box office.
Did you enjoy that? Good, because they're going to make a sequel. This is standard operating procedure and the modus operandi in Hollywood film production. If something is successful you do it again. And then you do it again. And then you do it again and again until it's not successful or until a »
(Cbr) If you thought the next "Transformers" film would feature robots with testicles made of wrecking-balls, think again! According to director Michael Bay, that kind of “goofiness” will be completely wiped away from next summer’s "Transformers: Age of Extinction". “I wanted the first Transformers to be very suburban and less cool,” he told Yahoo. “This is a much more cinematic one. I focused on keeping this one slick. There won’t be any goofiness in this one. We went a bit too goofy [on the last one].” “It feels like a new chapter, this movie,” he continued. “But it’s not a reboot. »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week
What's It About? Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) is more human than X-Man in this stand-alone film that takes place in Japan. Not only has he lost his powers, but his memories of Jean Grey are driving him cuckoo. Which is too bad, because he's still got to fight off loads of gangsters, ninjas, and other slick villains -- including one green-eyed baddie from the past.
Why We're In: Director James Mangold ("Walk the Line," "3:10 to Yuma") balances fantastic action with a more serious sensibility that recalls samurai films of yore. Plus, you don't need to be an X-pert X-Men fan to enjoy this movie.
