Check Out This Ninja Turtles Super Bowl Tease!

4 February 2016 12:25 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

I don't know about you, but I had negative expectations going into the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. Although Michael Bay was only attached to produce the film, I was adamant to stay far away from anything he was associated with. Imagine my surprise when the film turned out to be a lot of fun.

I'm not saying it was an amazing film, but it was a good watch, and it left me pretty excited for the sequel. Of course, it's that time of year, and it looks like the sequel, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows, will be one of many films to show a trailer at this year's Super Bowl.

Check out the tease for that trailer below!

Of course, that tease doesn't really show us much of anything, but what can we expect.

Are you looking forward to the full TV spot on Sunday? »

20 Best Easter Eggs In 2015 Movies

4 February 2016 8:14 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Disney/Marvel

Let’s be perfect frank here: film audiences are gradually seeing their perversion for Easter Eggs, homages and meta secrets shape the way movies are actually put together. Instead of the previously complex process of deep, complex story-telling (obviously not for Michael Bay), they’re now charged with drawing relatable characters with substance, engaging complicated plots And an entirely different level of narrative designed to delight geeks.

Because that’s what Easter Egg hunting comes down to: we are the social outcasts of the film community, standing on metaphorical bridges with metaphorical notepads, probably touching ourselves over what amounts to trainspotting. And yet, somehow, we’re congratulated for it, as if watching films in entirely the wrong way is now a virtue. What a bloody world.

So to feed your perpetual hunger for Easter Eggs, here’s a run-down of the very best secrets, in-jokes and references hidden in 2015’s biggest, »

9 Bizarre Minor Movie Cameos Made By Massive Actors

3 February 2016 10:55 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Disney

Movies are meant to transport you, taking you out of your everyday life and providing two hours of sheer escapism. The whole “leave your brain at the door” mentality that pervades the target audience of the explosion-centric films of Michael Bay and his ilk may be a little off-point (how do you go to the cinema and not look to be engaged?), but the idea of getting enraptured in the world on screen – be that a cosmic space saga or an intimate personal drama – that you forget everything else is a potent one.

So when a big celebrity rears their head in a clearly purposed hat-tip to the audience it can all be a bit surprising. There you are, absent-mindedly enjoying Hook, basking in how not as awful as Pan it is, and then all of a sudden you have Glenn Close stood about dressed as a man?! What? »

8 Times Michael Bay Said F*ck You To Horror Fans

2 February 2016 4:33 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Alexander F. Yuan/AP

Founded in 2001 by Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form, Platinum Dunes’ remit was simple: low budget horror remakes from no-name directors with backgrounds similar to Bay. The more uniform the product, the greater the chance of predicting its success.

Horror had provided a dependable revenue stream for New Line (A Nightmare On Elm Street), Miramax (Scream) and Dark Castle (House On Haunted Hill), and with a commercials director at the helm, the resulting pictures, beginning with Marcus Nispel’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003), looked like Mini-Me versions of Bay’s movies. It was the perfect formula and it paid off in spades, with Chainsaw raking in over $100m on a $9m budget.

It also proved what Bay’s harshest critics had been saying all along: he had the instincts of a marketer, not a filmmaker, and was more interested in profits than quality pictures.

Transformers 5 filming this year, summer 2017 release expected

Michael Bay is returning to make one more Transformers film - and he starts shooting this May, it seems...

With 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Banghazi now in cinemas around the world, director Michael Bay is free to move onto his next project. And, in a surprise to nobody really, that project is Transformers 5.

Bay confirmed earlier this year that he wanted to make one more Transformers film himself - having directed the four so far - before handing the series over to someone else. It's no secret that Paramount has plans for a full Transformers movie universe once Transformers 5 is done.

It's full steam ahead, then. Transformers 5, we now learn, is set to start filming this coming May, and the smart money is on a release date in July 2017, or thereabouts.

Mark Wahlberg will return to lead the cast.

More as we hear it. »

Since the first trailer for 10 Cloverfield Land came out of nowhere in front of prints of Michael Bay's 13 Hours, fans of the original Cloverfield have been trying to figure out exactly what this mysterious motion picture is and how it might tie back into the 2008 monster movie with the same namesake.

'Transformers 5' Begins Shooting in May

1 February 2016 1:04 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in September, we reported that the Transformers writers room had completed their work. It was originally thought that Transformers 5 would start shooting in June of this year, with Paramount aiming for a summer 2017 release date. Now that Michael Bay has been confirmed to direct, it seems production has been moved up slightly, with My Entertainment World reporting that shooting is now set to begin in May, although no specific shooting locations were mentioned.

Mark Wahlberg is returning as Cade Yeager from Transformers: Age of Extinction, but it isn't known quite yet if Nicola Peltz (Tessa Yeager) and Jack Reynor (Shane Dyson) will also be reprising their roles in the sequel. While no story details have been revealed quite yet, a recent profile on director Michael Bay teased "an underwater rendering of a crash-landed alien spaceship," along with a "new dump-truck Transformer with a cloak."

1 February 2016 11:57 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to My Entertainment World, we’ve got details on production start dates for some of 2017’s big hitters.

The Scarlett Johansson-headlined Ghost in the Shell, which is set to be directed by Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman) will begin filming this month in New Zealand, Hong Kong, Macau and Shanghai.

Also set to commence production this month is the Fifty Shades of Grey follow-up Fifty Shades Darker, which sees Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson returning as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele alongside new addition Kim Basinger.

Next Transformers Film to Begin Production in May

1 February 2016 11:04 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Who in the world would have predicted that the Transformers franchise would be such a financial juggernaut? Sure, before the first film came out in 2007, people knew it would be a hit on some level--surely it wouldn't have ever been funded unless they had faith. The real head-scratcher here is that they've managed to break $1 billion worldwide with the last two films, despite the low quality of the movies themselves (Transformers: Age Of Extinction seems to be widely accepted as the worst entry in the series).

All the same, Michael Bay and company must be doing something right, otherwise they wouldn't be hitting it off so well at the box office. Fans of the series know that there's a fifth Transformers film in the making--and many more to come, if the writer's room is any indication. Not only is Mark Wahlberg coming back to reprise his role, but director Michael Bay »

Avatar 2 And Wolverine 3 Reportedly Eyeing April 2016 Start Dates; Fifty Shades Darker And More Also Slated

1 February 2016 9:40 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Arguably two of the biggest sequels teetering on the edge of entering production, in a comprehensive report detailing upcoming start dates, My Entertainment World has seemingly revealed that Wolverine 3 and James Cameron’s long-delayed Avatar 2 will leap in front of the cameras come April.

Recently pushed out of its tentative December 2017 release window – likely to make room for Disney’s Star Wars: Episode VIII – Cameron’s sci-fi follow-up has struggled to nail down a concrete production timeline up until now. Now, however, My Entertainment World claims that the director’s trip to Pandora will begin filming in New Zealand in only a few months’ time. No word yet on whether Cameron will remain committed to filming three sequels back-to-back, though we’ll keep you updated as Avatar 2 inches closer to firing up production.
