With Chinese companies Jiaflix Enterprises and China Movie Channel coproducing Transformers 4 with Paramount and Hasbro, it doesn’t come as much of a surprise that the latest installment in Michael Bay's Transformers franchise will have a heavy Chinese influence. And because it's a Transformers (and more importantly, a Michael Bay) movie, you know there's going to be a ton of destruction. Three Chinese landmarks have been targeted to face the wrath of Bay's CGI team. China.org.cn reports that a deal has been signed between the producers of the film and the Chinese hotel company Beijing Pangu. In exchange for financing, the company's flagship building Pangu Plaza Hotel (above) will be featured and destroyed in the upcoming movie. The other two...

The next instalment in the blockbuster franchise is currently filming in Texas with new star Mark Wahlberg.
Earlier this month, it was reported that an on-set blaze sparked by a controlled explosion briefly halted production on the movie.
Director Bay has gone into more detail on the blaze, clarifying reports that a crew member was seriously injured during the fire.
He wrote in a blog post on his website: "Shooting of Transformers 4 is going great with Wahlberg and the new cast. We are having a great time in Texas.
"Yes there was a small smouldering fire at a house and no, no-one was injured during the fire. And no, no-one 'just narrowly escaped' as the news dramatically states. A crew member though twisted his ankle after falling in a gopher hole on the ranch. »
While this shouldn't come as a huge surprise, given the nature of director Michael Bay's Transformers franchise, the producers of Transformers 4 want to blow up several Chinese landmarks during their shoot in China this fall.
The producers have signed a deal with Chinese financiers Beijing Pangu, who will foot the bill for the Chinese portion of the shoot, scheduled to commence in October. In exchance, the company wants the sequel to use their main building, the Pangu Plaza Hotel in Beijing, which will be seen exploding in the movie. The facility is close to the National Stadium and Beijing National Aquatic Center, which the production also wants to use in the movie, although it isn't known if they will be blown up or not.
Take another look @ actress Megan Fox as the character 'April O'Neil', 'Channel 6 Newscaster' on the set of producer Michael Bay's reboot of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", adapting the popular Mirage comic book series.
The new live-action feature featuring CG animated 'Ninja Turtles', stars Will Arnett as 'Vernon Fenwick', Alan Ritchson as 'Raphael', Noel Fisher as 'Michelangelo', Jeremy Howard as 'Donatello', Pete Ploszek as 'Leonardo' and Danny Woodburn as the giant rat 'Splinter'.
The original characters were created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird in 1984 through a self-published comic book, intended to parody Marvel Comics' "Daredevil" and "New Mutants", Dave Sim's "Cerebus" and Frank Miller's "Ronin".
The story focused on four teenage anthropomorphic turtles, named after Renaissance artists. Trained by their anthropomorphic rat 'sensei' in the art of 'ninjutsu', the Turtles lived in the storm sewers of New York City, battling criminals, »

From sex tourism to care-home degradation, Haneke and co venture undaunted into areas that Hollywood fears to tread
If Hollywood's knights of raucous mise-en-scene – Michael Bay, Zack Snyder, Roland Emmerich, etc – are there to uphold the gleaming castle of entertainment, I like to think there's a shadowy league ranged against them, beyond the mountains of the Old World. No bodacious starlets for this cabal, no multimillion-dollar CGI sprees; no high-octane street racing, or talking mammoths, or cheap affirmative morality. Nope, for the Austrian League of Extraordinarily Pessimistic Gentlemen, it's only the good stuff: sex tourism, the disappointment of immigrants, care-home degradation, suburban paedophilia, irrational violence, industrial farming and, lest we forget, latent Nazism.
Who are its members? There's Ulrich Seidl, dissecting modern aspirations in his Paradise trilogy; Götz Spielmann, whose impassive framing of his 2008 thriller Revanche hinted there might be such a thing as an "Austrian" style; Nikolaus Geyrhalter, the »

Man of Steel, 2013.
Directed by Zack Snyder.
A young boy learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this Earth. As a young man, he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. But the hero in him must emerge if he is to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind.
I distinctly remember leaving the cinema after Superman Returns in 2006 with a sense of disappointment. It not only made Superman rather creepy, but it was terribly dull. With a plodding story and a slavish link to the Christopher Reeve films of the 70s and 80s, it left many questioning if Superman had a place in modern cinematic times. »

“Toy Story” meets “The Avengers” in the teaser for “The Lego Movie,” a high-concept Warner Bros. idea that, until this very second, most of us didn’t have any idea how they would possibly go about bringing to the bigscreen. Turns out the strategy is to embrace the building-block nature of the world and its characters (as opposed to the “Legends of Chima” animated series and various videogames), while using CG to do what most kids already do with their imaginations, which is bring the plastic playthings to life.
Opening with a clever bait-and-switch sequence that looks like it might be the setup for “The Avengers 2″ and sounds like the digital grinding of a possible “Transformers 4,” the teaser might fool fans of both those series in theaters. The film’s plot doesn’t much matter, though the clip scores a few laughs by putting its premise in the mouth of Morgan Freeman, »

After parting ways with Twilight composer Carter Burwell over "creative differences" last month, Marvel Studios has apparently locked in a replacement for the upcoming film, Thor: The Dark World. According to Film Music Reporter and other sources, composer, producer and conductor Brian Tyler has signed on to tackle the score of the Alan Taylor-directed sequel. There're no further details provided, but Thor: The Dark World is currently in post-production and apparently underwent minor reshoots very recently. Meanwhile, Brian Tyler has also been tapped to score the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film and past credits include Iron Man 3, The Expendables, Fast Five and Final Destination series. In other Dark World-related news, Heimdall actor Idris Elba promises "there is a story" for the gatekeeper in the much-anticipated Thor follow-up. "The director has gone for a really interesting perspective on the world that Thor comes from," Elba informed »

Michael Bay doesn’t seem the type of filmmaker that’s bothered about what the critics say about his films. When your titles are consistently making billions for studios, why care? Saying that, the fact-based crime-comedy Pain & Gain garnered Bay the finest reviews of his career when the film was released earlier this year in Us. The frenetically paced thriller may have received criticism for its comic approach in a real-life crime that involved extortion, kidnapping and murder but it’s said to follow close to the actual events.
Dwayne Johnson, Anthony Mackie and Mark Wahlberg (currently reuniting with Bay on Transformers 4) play a trio of roid-raging bodybuilders, whose get rich quick scheme backfires with fatal results. Pain & Gain hits UK cinemas from 30th August and here is the UK one-sheet.

Michael Bay’s Pain & Gain will soon be flexing its muscles at the European box office, and we’ve got a world exclusive poster to prove it. Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson head up the one-sheet, glowering in the background from behind some particularly stylish shades. Adding to the sense of Bayhem is the speedboat that can be seen tearing towards the shore, and the attractive young lady who's been thrown in for good measure. Pain & Gain has been something of a passion project for Bay. It’s based on the true story of a...

Man of Steel weekend box office: Above estimates, but real June record remains beyond the reach of Superman 2013 reboot (image: Henry Cavill as Superman in Man of Steel) Somewhat surprisingly — it’s usually the other way around — Warner Bros.’ Man of Steel grossed more than $3 million above studio estimates released on Sunday, June 16, 2013. Directed by Zack Snyder (300, Sucker Punch), and starring Henry Cavill (The Tudors, possibly the upcoming The Man from U.N.C.L.E.), the 2013 Superman reboot scored $116.61 million from 4,207 North American locations according to weekend box-office actuals found at Box Office Mojo. Once Thursday evening figures are added, the $225 million-budgeted Man of Steel‘s domestic cume reached $128.68 million by Sunday evening. Now, Man of Steel‘s adjusted $116.61 million doesn’t change the June Box-Office Record Chart in any way. The Superman reboot remains ahead of the former official June champ, the Tom Hanks-, Tim Allen-voiced Toy Story 3‘s »

Spoiler Alert: This discussion reveals key plot details from “Man of Steel.”
Justin Chang: Several weeks ago, writing about “Iron Man 3″ in the New York Times, Manohla Dargis noted that the film, with its bombastic explosions and references to terrorism, underscored “just how thoroughly Sept. 11 and its aftermath have been colonized by the movies.” A similar thought occurred to me repeatedly during the last hour or so of Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel,” which, as our colleague Scott Foundas pointed out in his review, strongly resembles the likes of “The Avengers” and “Transformers” in its cinematic shock-and-awe. I’d say Snyder goes even further than those movies in the way he channels the specific terror and chaos of 9/11; you see it in those brief scenes of small planes hitting skyscrapers, and in the lingering shots of ash-covered Metropolitans being pulled, traumatized but hopeful, from the rubble.
As I noted about two years ago, »
