‘Sing Street’ Exclusive Behind-The-Scenes Clip: John Carney Talks Casting Two Young Leads

25 July 2016 2:37 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s never easy to cast young actors, but when John Carney found Ferdia Walsh-Peelo and Lucy Boynton to play Conor Lalor and Raphina in his new film “Sing Street,” he struck gold. Set in inner-city Dublin in 1985, the film follows Conor as he enters Synge Street CBS, a free state school, after his parents can no longer afford to pay for his private school education. While Conor encounters bullies and pedophiles in the institution, he catches the eye of Raphina, a beautiful girl who sits across the street. In order to impress her, he tells her that he has a band and needs a model for a music video. Soon, Conor starts a band called Sing Street with other friends and the group starts writing and recording songs, all the while Conor and Raphina start to fall in love and contemplating leaving Ireland for better pastures.

Jason Bourne review

25 July 2016 7:48 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Published Date  Tuesday, July 26, 2016 - 08:00

I think the new Jason Bourne movie had me when, early in the film, Julia Stiles’ returning Nicky unpacks what looks like a Russian Zx Spectrum 48k and starts using it to hack an otherwise impenetrable computer network. I’d like to think she has a quick go on Manic Miner on it when the cameras were off.

Still, by then we’d already had a ‘previously on Jason Bourne recap’, giving a brief overview of the first three films in the series. And we’d had further evidence that director Paul Greengrass – returning with Matt Damon, after the pair (wisely) skipped The Bourne Legacy – has an unmatched ability to make gazing at computer screens the most thrilling and tense thing in the world. For the umpteenth time in Greengrass-directed movies, I nearly yanked the armrests off my seat, as little graphics blipped across a monitor. »

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 »

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 »

Transformers 5 Set Video Shows Off Big Highway Explosion

19 July 2016 6:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Universal's Fast & Furious 8 started production earlier this summer, the sequel started a tradition known as Fast Fridays, where the filmmakers would share a special behind-the-scenes video that offers a glimpse at what scenes they shot that particular week. It seems Paramount's Transformers: The Last Knight is starting a new tradition of their own dubbed Transformers Tuesday, where they will share a new video each week for Transformers 5.

This week's video, which debuted on the Transformers Facebook, reveals a scene that features a number of vehicles travelling down a highway, before a massive explosion takes out three of these SUV's, which are seen rolling end over end on this desolate stretch of road. This video also gives us brief glimpses of Michael Bay in action, setting up this explosive scene. We don't know where exactly in the movie this scene will take place quite yet, but hopefully we'll get »

Sony’s Emoji Movie Nets Official Title, Deadpool Star T.J. Miller To Lead Cast

18 July 2016 9:08 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Not a day goes by without Twitter, Instagram and other social feeds taking time to celebrate some form of holiday – no matter how obscure. Over the weekend, World Emoji Day had its turn in the limelight, and Sony took the opportunity to announce Deadpool star T.J. Miller will headline The Emoji Movie (you can check out his cheeky audition tape above).

News arrives in tandem with an official title for the feature film, which will hit theaters in 2017 bearing the name EmojiMovie: Express Yourself.

Miller, meanwhile, has clinched the role of Gene, a ‘meh’ emoji who is designed to display but one emotion much like his parents. An unexpected glitch in his system flips the table, though, opening up a host of expressions for Miller’s cutesy protagonist to experience.

Here’s the all-too-brief logline for Sony’s flick: “Inside your phone, there’s a secret world – and we enter »

Optimus Prime Battles A Three-Headed Beastie In Transformers: The Last Knight Banner

Paramount plans to dominate the box office next summer with its latest ‘bot outing Transformers: The Last Knight. Shooting is well underway on the sequel, which is supposedly director Michael Bay’s final turn behind the lens, and so far, everything we know about the blockbuster has stemmed from his social media.

If you’ve an ounce of knowledge about the franchise, you might know what to expect, though. It’ll feature two brigades of sparring robots and a bunch of humans unwillingly caught in the middle. By the looks of this latest marketing reveal, The Last Knight is also aiming to throw in some sort of triple-headed monster-thing.

‘Master of None’ Exec Producer Alan Yang on Emmy Nominations: ‘We’re Ecstatic’

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

Netflix’s “Master of None” got a lot of critical praise last year, but Alan Yang, who created the show with Aziz Ansari, almost didn’t watch the livestream of Thursday’s Emmy nomination announcements. He was afraid the show might not get any recognition, and of course, he was very glad to be wrong. “Master of None” was nominated in the best comedy category, as well as for the writing and directing of the “Parents” episode, and for Ansari’s performance.

Yang talked about his reaction to the nominations, and about how he and Ansari feel lucky to be working in the industry right now.

What were you doing when you heard the news? 

We’re on the East Coast, so it was around 11:40 a.m., people were getting ready to eat lunch. Aziz was like, “Should we watch the Emmy nominations?” I was like, “No! I don’t want to do that!” And »

Why I Wrote a Book About The Unheralded Genius in Michael Bay’s Films

14 July 2016 9:44 AM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Fsr Illustration

About two years ago, I wrote a book on the films of Michael Bay. This unauthorized critical examination saw release in November 2014 under the title Michael F-ing Bay: The Unheralded Genius in Michael Bay’s Films. I knew I was throwing down a gauntlet with a provocative title like that and the reaction to that mere declaration. One troll kept loudly accusing me of writing the book so Michael Bay would hire me. He must have really liked this joke because he made it on several posts, across many websites that carried the announcement of my book. (The Broken Projector was one such outlet and I had a very interesting conversation with Scott Beggs about the book.) This suggested to me that not only did he have no understanding of how Hollywood worked, he almost certainly hadn’t read the book.

That question “Why would someone write a book about Michael Bay?” has »

New Times Square Billboard Reveals 'Transformers: The Last Knight' Tidbits

14 July 2016 6:44 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

At a time when many civilized film fans would love to see the Transformers franchise wind down, the Paramount Pictures production only seems to be getting bigger. With a storyline that involves outer space, possible time travel, and the incorporation of the legendary King Arthur mythos, as well as a cast that includes faces both new and old from the previous four entries, it's clear that Transformers: The Last Knight is brimming with ambition. 

A new super-sized poster in Times Square billboard gives us a good look at some of what's in store for us when Transformers: The Last Knight comes out next year:

A few things that jump out from this Transformers: The Last Knight billboard:

Transformers: The Last Knight surprise billboard on display in Times Square

14 July 2016 12:54 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In a rather surprise move, a billboard for Transformers: The Last Knight has popped up in New York City’s Times Square. The image features Optimus Prime engaging an unknown enemy. This is a surprise because the movie isn’t even a year out yet and filming is currently underway, though the image could give us a small hint at the film’s villain.

Though we don’t know what Optimus is fighting, it certainly looks like a rendition of the giant-sized planet eater Unicron. After Megatron, Unicron is the most recurring and ultimate villain in nearly iteration of the Transformers franchise, eating planets to turn into fuel for his massive body and seeking the destruction of the Autobot’s Matrix of Leadership. Tansformers: Age of Extinction ended with Optimus going in search of his ‘creators’ and Unicron is one of the oldest transformers to have ever existed, in some »

Transformers 5 Billboard Shows Optimus Prime Fighting a New Enemy

13 July 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Michael Bay is currently knee-deep in production on the fifth installment of the Transformers franchise, Transformers: The Last Knight. The movie isn't due out until next summer, but Bay has been very active on social media, sharing set photos, videos and even a brand new Transformer named Squeeks. But now it looks like the marketing campaign for the movie has officially kicked off, as the first billboard for Transformers: The Last Knight has surfaced.

The Transformers fan site Seibertron got wind of the new billboard in Times Square in New York City, and posted some pictures to their site and their social media channels. Paramount just recently put up the massive billboard for the movie on 47th Street in Midtown Manhattan. It prominently features Optimus Prime wielding his sword, facing off against what looks to either be a single robot with three heads, or three different robots with the same head. »
