Variety is reporting that Diederick Van Rooijen has been hired to direct a remake of Alfred Hitchcock's classic thriller, The Birds, to be produced by Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes and Peter Guber's Mandalay Pictures for Universal.Van Rooijen is probably best known for his Dutch thriller Taped, which played at Fantastic Fest in 2012, and follows a young Dutch couple holidaying in Argentina, who go on the run from the local authorities after witnessing a cop commit murder.Platinum Dunes has been responsible for a number of remakes in the past few years, including The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and A Nightmare on Elm Street, and are now winding the clock back even further with this remake of Hitchcock's 1963 classic. No doubt Tippi Hedren and Rod Taylor's...

Whatever your feelings are about Michael Bay’s cash-cow Transformers franchise, there’s a pretty high likelihood that you weren’t advocating for the series’ previous leads, Shia Labeouf and Megan Fox, to win any acting awards for their performances. So, when Mark Wahlberg was announced as the lead for the fourth film, a quasi-reboot called Transformers: Age of Extinction, I was pleasantly surprised by the casting choice. Finally, the Transformers series had landed a lead actor who could demonstrate more than one emotion.
Unfortunately, the IMAX poster for the sequel doesn’t show any sign of improved artistic quality; in fact, Wahlberg is entirely absent from the shot (which you can check out below). None of the cast members get even name-dropped below the title. Instead of a look at any of the actors taking on major and supporting roles in the film, the poster simply shows a Transformer »

Alfred Hitchcock's film The Birds told the story of a rustic seaside town that finds itself menaced by hellish flocks of seagulls and crows. Now the 1963 classic looks set to suffer its own form of molestation courtesy of a Hollywood remake by Transformers director Michael Bay.
Loosely adapted from a 1952 short story by Daphne du Maurier, The Birds cast Tippi Hedren in the role of Melanie Daniels, a San Francisco socialite who comes horribly unstuck on a visit to northern California. Reports suggest that Bay's version will return to tale to its original English setting, while Naomi Watts is rumoured to be considering the Hedren role.
Variety reports that the film will be directed by the Dutch film-maker Diederik Van Rooijen, »

This one's direct in from our 'you can't make this shit up department'. It was marked urgent, but it's still taken us a week or two to get around to writing it up. We hope you understand.
So: you know the Alfred Hitchcock masterpiece The Birds? The 1963 thriller with Tippi Hedren in the lead role? Well, firstly there's a remake coming (which has been chatted about for a while). Secondly, Michael Bay is producing the remake.
We'll give you a minute.
Another one of my favorite movies to watch growing up in the 80s was a sci-fi film called Explorers. The movie was directed by Joe Dante and starred Ethan Hawke, River Phoenix, and Jason Presson. THR is reporting that Paramount Pictures is going to to remake the film, and they've brought in Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol screenwriters Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec to produce it. Geoff Moore and Dave Posamentier will write the script.
The original film told the story of three teenaged boys who create a homemade space ship that travels to into space where they encounter an alien race. The movie is really quite silly in so many ways, but as a kid it was the greatest thing ever!
There are no details on what the plans are for the remake, but an insider said "one template could be in the tone of Welcome to Yesterday, an upcoming »

Paramount have released a brand new IMAX posters to go along with the posters and trailer that we had recently for the movie which hits UK cinemas 10th July.
Michael Bay directs the fourth in the Transformers franchise and has a lot to do it get audiences back in favour after a pretty mediocre couple of previous movies. That said, the box-office has been good enough to keep these movies coming and we’re glad because life would be less fun without them in it!
Click the poster below to enlarge and make sure to check back at 1.30am tonight (we know!) for the trailer or obviously we’ll have it for your viewing pleasure in the morning.

A new Transformers: Age Of Extinction IMAX poster is forcing the transformers themselves to take centre stage, with an exciting look at this particularly large one that’s looming over the image. The fourth film in the Transformers franchise begins again with a whole new cast including Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager, a mechanic who stumbles across a Prime. The cast also includes Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer and Sophia Myles.
After the explosive trailer which smashed onto our computer screens recently, it’s great to see the scope of a film like this still intact. Check out the image below:

The film stars Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, Li Bingbing, T.J. Miller, Han Geng and Titus Welliver
Bay shot some scenes in IMAX so some sequences will for sure look pretty cool.
The movie’s plot is still under wraps.
Bay’s first Transformers film was a box office sensation in 2007, opening at #1 and earning more than $700 million worldwide. His second installment Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen in 2009 grossed more than $830 million worldwide. In 2011,Transformers: Dark Of The Moon was an even bigger hit worldwide, grossing more than a billion dollars to become the 5th highest grossing film of all time. To date, the franchise has earned more than $2.6 billion worldwide. »

The new IMAX poster for Michael Bay.s pending Age of Extinction borrows imagery from an ominous scene in the full trailer Paramount dropped for the sequel. We.re pasting it below, hoping someone can fill us in on the true identity of that rampaging Decepticon. The general consensus online is that this is Lockdown, a Decepticon bounty hunter. Other sites have speculated that it's Galvatron, a crucial component to the Transformers franchise who, for some reason, hasn.t been portrayed in Bay.s movies to this point. The villain was rumored to be a part of Age of Extinction back in May, then confirmed in February when Hasbro began unveiling toys tied to the sequel. At the same time, MTV.s UK site labels the Transformer in the poster as "Nightship." Unless that.s a reference to the ship coasting along behind this Decepticon in question? We.ve reached »

In case you don't remember, Michael Bay actually shot some scenes for Transformers: Age of Extinction in IMAX.

Following the full trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction, along with the poster featuring Optimus Prime standing like Lancelot with a sword, we have a new IMAX poster for the pseudo-reboot and sequel in the Hasbro toy film franchise. This one simply takes a shot from the trailer where the enemy arrives near Mark Wahlberg's farm and begins wreaking havoc on Earth again, and just puts it in the frame of a poster. It's a cool shot, but there were plenty of quick glimpses in the aforementioned trailer that felt like they were straight out of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, but that's Michael Bay for you. See the poster! Here's the IMAX poster for Michael Bay's Transformers: Age of Extinction from Yahoo: Michael Bay is again directing Transformers 4, or Transformers: Age of Extinction, from a screenplay by Ehren Kruger, as his last film in the blockbuster »

If there is one movie to see in IMAX 3D this year, it has to be Transformers: Age of Extinction. The franchise was specifically made for this immersive cinematic experience, and if we're to believe the recent trailers, the latest chapter will not disappoint in bringing action on an epic scale that can only be contained on the biggest of screens. Today, we get an IMAX 3D poster for Transformers: Age of Extinction which features one of the many scenes from the trailer. The identity of this particular Decepticon has not yet been revealed, though he is believed to be Galvatron, who transforms into a black and grey 2014 Freightliner Argosy truck cab. We may also be looking at Lockdown, a Deceipticon bounty hunter who transforms into grey 2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Coupe. Take a look, and then argue amongst yourselves.
Why is there a giant spaceship in this new IMAX poster for Michael Bay’s “Transformers: Age of Extinction”? Heck, why were there spaceships in the movies at all? I mean, they’re robots that can transform into vehicles. Do they really need, I don’t know, to have their own spaceships, too? I always found that a little odd. Isn’t it like a human being climbing into another human being? Anyways, I’m probably overthinking it. This is a film series about transforming robots from outer space, after all. Check out the new IMAX poster for “Age of Extinction” below. I have no idea if that’s Megatron or some other robot. Megatron never really looked like Megatron from the cartoons I remember, so it was always a bit of a crapshoot for me to identify Megatron in the last three movies.

The list of Hollywood franchises based on videogames pretty much begins and ends with Screen Gems’ “Resident Evil” series. But if Electronic Arts has its way, its Aaron Paul-starrer “Need for Speed,” which throttles into theaters March 14, not only will help DreamWorks launch its first such series but change the way games are translated to the bigscreen.
Having watched adaptations like “Prince of Persia” and “Tomb Raider” fail to live up to their vidgame successes, and projects like “Halo,” “Spy Hunter” and “BioShock” fall by the wayside, EA, the second-largest games publisher behind Activision Blizzard, decided to take more control of the development process.
“We wanted to go (to a studio) with a serious movie proposition,” not just a general offer to license the film rights to a game series, says Patrick O’Brien, EA’s VP of entertainment, who oversees the company’s film projects. “Need for Speed »

Paramount has released a new IMAX poster for Michael Bay's Transformers: Age of Extinction featuring a lone robot walking down a ravaged suburban street in what must be somewhere around Anytown, USA as an even bigger robot ship hovers above the wreckage. Whom or what robot is featured, I have no idea, but I do know the second poster below is a character poster for Bingbing Li who apparently plays a character known as Su Yueming. I have no idea, however, to what capacity she's involved in the plot. Transformers: Age of Extinction hits theaters on June 27. Transformers 4 stars Mark Wahlberg alongside Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Brenton Thwaites, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles and T.J. Miller. Here's a look at the latest trailer if you missed it previously. sb id="891297" height="343" width="610" »

Now that we’ve seen a proper trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction, Paramount Pictures has released a new IMAX poster for the Michael Bay-directed film. Mark Wahlberg takes over lead acting duties in what’s essentially a reboot of Bay’s Transformers franchise, as he plays a father and inventor who accidentally discovers a discarded Transformer years after the “Battle in Chicago” from Transformers: Dark of the Moon, setting into motion events that make him the target of the U.S. government and result in the appearance of the Dinobots. This new IMAX poster is basically just a still from the trailer, but it does a nice job of conveying that massive scale that should be a fine fit for the IMAX format. Hit the jump to check out the new poster. The film also stars Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Kelsey Grammer, Stanley Tucci, T.J. Miller, Titus Welliver, »
