Transformers: Age of Extinction Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD Coming September 30

22 hours ago | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Paramount Home Entertainment has formally announced a September 30 release date for Transformers: Age of Extinction on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD following a tweet announcement earlier in the day by star Mark Wahlberg and our own sources revealing the date several days ago. The Digital HD version will bow two weeks earlier on September 16.

Transformers: Age of Extinction stars Wahlberg along with Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz and Kelsey Grammer as the fourth film in the franchise from director Michael Bay. As with each previous installment it has done explosive box office business, thus far to the tune of $1.065 billion in worldwide ticket sales. No doubt the introduction of the Dinobots helped sell a few extra tickets.

Paramount will be offering separate Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD combo versions of the film. The Blu-ray 3D combo will include Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD, while the Blu-ray combo includes DVD and Digital HD. »

25 August 2014 5:39 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Jim Parsons joined an elite club at the Emmy Awards on Monday night.

New on DVD Blu-ray August 26, 2014: 'Belle,' 'Portlandia,' 'Walking Dead'

25 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week

"Belle"

What's It About? This 18th century English romance is about Dido Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), a biracial woman raised by her aristocratic great uncle and aunt, Lord and Lady Mansfield. She grows up alongside her cousin Elizabeth (Sarah Gadon) as equals and best friends, but as they come of age, their differences become all too apparent -- to each other and to their would-be suitors. Meanwhile, Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) is facing a trial as Lord Chief Justice of England that could change the future of slavery. Will Dido find love on her own terms?

Why We're In: It's an elegant period piece perfect for Jane Austen fans, and it's a subtle but effective examination of the intersection of class and race in 18th century England. Mbatha-Raw is fantastic, and director Amma Asante has an excellent eye for detail.

Martin Lawrence and Kelsey Grammer Talk Comedy and Chemistry for FX's Partners

25 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

When Martin Lawrence heard of Kelsey Grammer's desire to join him on the new FX sitcom Partners, the actor's first thought was, "How can we make this comedy work?" But comedic success has never been tough to figure out for either actor, both of whom made their marks on classic sitcoms. Before breaking out on the big screen in such hits as Big Momma's House, Lawrence spent five seasons playing smart-mouthed DJ Martin Payne on his eponymous Fox sitcom in the '90s, while...

We talk Who Do You Think You Are? with Ep Dan Bucatinsky

20 August 2014 4:01 PM, PDT | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

On tonight’s all-new episode of TLC’s Who Do You Think You Are? beloved actor Kelsey Grammer explores his grandmother’s lineage in a deeply emotional journey that leads him westward across America. It’s the kind of episode the show’s co-executive producer Dan Bucatinsky says fascinates him most. “I love the episodes that touch on tent poles in history, stuff we studied in  text books in school but didn’t have a personal connection with — like the Salem Witch Trials with Sarah Jessica Parker,” says Bucatinsky, the entertainment-industry multi-hyphenate who brought the addictive genealogy series to America with his longtime business partner Lisa Kudrow … Continue reading →

Partners: FX Comedy Likely to Be Cancelled

20 August 2014 12:33 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

In the past, Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence have both had successful sitcoms that ran for many years. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like the duo's new FX sitcom, Partners, has much of a future. It's very likely to be cancelled.

On Partners, a snobby lawyer (Grammer) and an overly ethics-driven lawyer (Lawrence) become partners and end up helping each other get their lives in order. The rest of the cast includes McKaley Miller, Telma Hopkins, Danièle Watts, Rory O’Malley, and Edi Patterson.

As you may recall, FX made a 10/90 deal for Partners with Lionsgate TV and Debmar-Mercury. If the sitcom's first 10 episodes reached a certain ratings threshold then the cable channel was obligated to order 90 episodes for season two -- assuring the studios would have enough episodes for a (potentially very lucrative) syndication package.

Arnie and Jet Li's Expendables 3 characters are gay, says director

19 August 2014 5:52 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Patrick Hughes has said that Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jet Li's Expendables 3 characters are gay.

Speculation emerged online after the release of the third film, as a scene involving Schwarzenegger and Li sees the pair getting close in a bar.

Asked if Trench (Schwarzenegger) and Yin Yang (Li) are in a relationship, the director told Grantland: "I believe they are."

The Expendables 3 opened in cinemas on August 14 in the UK and August 15 in the Us.

It debuted at number four in the Us box office, with takings of $16.2m in its first weekend.

The film stars an ensemble cast including Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Harrison Ford, Antonio Banderas, Wesley Snipes and Mel Gibson.

Twilight's Kellan Lutz, Terry Crews and Kelsey Grammer also star.

Crews revealed to Digital Spy that he would love to see a cross-over film with the Fast and Furious cast. »

​Box Office: Why Did 'The Expendables 3' Flop?

18 August 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Really?

"The Expendables 3" was supposed to be the last big action release of the summer, just as its predecessors were in 2010 and 2012. Even though the all-star action series had been trending downward, it was still supposed to open around $24 million, in close contention for first place with reigning chart champ "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" and three-week-old "Guardians of the Galaxy."

But it wasn't even close. "Expendables" lived down to its name, opening with a mere estimated $16.2 million and settling for fourth place. (Action comedy "Let's Be Cops" did exactly as well as expected, opening with in third place with an estimated $17.7 million.) "Turtles" remained on top with an estimated $28.4 million, well ahead of "Guardians" at No. 2 with an estimated $24.7 million.

What went wrong? Here are some possibilities:

Over-saturation. "Expendables" had to compete with still-strong action films "Turtles," "Guardians," "into the Storm," "Lucy," and "Hercules," as well as action-comedy newcomer "Let's Be Cops. »

Kelsey Grammer and Randy Couture Talk The Expendables 3, Filming in Bulgaria, Deleted Scenes, Unrated Cuts, and More

18 August 2014 8:57 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Now playing in theaters is director Patrick Hughes’ The Expendables 3.  Like I said on Twitter, The Expendables 3 is a lot of fun and my favorite of the series due in large part to Mel GibsonWesley Snipes and Antonio Banderas.  All three are awesome and Banderas steals every scene he’s in.  In addition to the new cast, The Expendables 3 has a crazy third act that’s easily the best action scene of the franchise.  I think the team kills over a thousand people.  It shows once again how the MPAA doesn’t care about violence when giving out ratings.  Only in America can a film like this get a PG-13. At the recent Los Angeles press day I landed an exclusive video interview with Kelsey Grammer and Randy Couture.  They talked about what they remember most about filming, making the movie in Bulgaria, deleted scenes, how »

Which 'Expendables 3' newcomer has the biggest balls? Ronda Rousey, apparently

17 August 2014 4:35 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) When the name of your mercenary team is the Expendables, it’s always a good idea to have some newbie cannon fodder on hand. For "The Expendables 3," writer/producer/star Sylvester Stallone once again recruited fresh meat. In addition to genre icons Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Antonio Banderas and Wesley Snipes, Stallone set his sights on a selection of fresh faces from the worlds of film and professional fighting. Franchise newcomers include "Twilight" hunk and rising action star Kellan Lutz ("The Legend of Hercules"), mixed martial artist and Ufc women’s champion Ronda Rousey, welterweight boxing champion Victor Ortiz, and emerging actor, writer, producer and stuntman Glen Powell ("Ride Along 2"). Throw in Emmy winner Kelsey Grammer ("Frasier," "Boss"), and the mixture became as volatile as a Molotov cocktail. At a recent press conference, the new recruits sounded off on the fun – and the occasional hard knocks – of joining Stallone’s team. »

Film Review: As Title Implies, ‘The Expendables 3’ Totally Expendable

16 August 2014 5:59 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The old man as macho action hero trend has finally calcified. If you haven’t seen either of the two previous “Expendables” pictures – this is definitely not the place to start. Sylvester Stallone’s creaky franchise hits rock bottom.

with this shoddy looking, poorly paced, indifferently acted and overlong exercise in excess on the cheap. It supposedly cost $90 million dollars to make, but what’s onscreen looks like it should have gone direct to video. Some explosions look like they were created with an iPhone.

Rating: 1.0/5.0

The poster promises a Cannon Films era wish list of stars – including new additions Mel Gibson, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, and Harrison Ford – in an old school action picture where the body count goes sky high and the bullets never stop flying. But the finished film bears perhaps too many resemblances to the shoddy looking action pictures of the era – it’s an »

Second Opinion – The Expendables (2014)

16 August 2014 4:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Expendables 3, 2014.

Directed by Patrick Hughes.

Starring Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, Mel Gibson, Antonio Banderas, Kellan Lutz, Kelsey Grammer, Glen Powell, Ronda Rousey and Victor Ortiz.

Synopsis:

Barney augments his team with new blood for a personal battle: to take down Conrad Stonebanks, the Expendables co-founder and notorious arms trader who is hell bent on wiping out Barney and every single one of his associates.

 

Watching The Expendables 3, one can’t help but see the irony. In 2010, Sylvester Stallone rounded up a group of fellow action stars to give audiences what they always wanted to see, even if it was two decades too late to have any real significance; 1980s action gods Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, and Stallone himself sharing the same screen (with a few other C-List names added to make up the numbers). The film was fun, »

‘Expendables 3′: Measuring The Sum Of Its Star Parts In Key Overseas Markets

16 August 2014 4:12 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The Expendables 3 is debuting this weekend in 40 territories including Russia, the UK, Mexico and Australia — and features a powerhouse ensemble that includes Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Dolph Lundgren, Kelsey Grammer and Kellan Lutz.

Together, the cast outweighs the sum of its parts, but the parts are actually quite interesting when looked at in terms of international box-office drawing power, especially in mega markets like China, Korea, Russia, Brazil, and parts of Western Europe. Below, I’ve broken out numbers for some of the individual stars across those markets with a nifty slideshow that covers their last three major titles outside the franchise in these key territories.* The first Expendables film did about $274M worldwide, with $171M from overseas. In an unusual turn of events for a sequel, the franchise’s second film saw its earnings drop in the U. »

Sylvester Stallone says Rambo V will be his next film

16 August 2014 12:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been on the cards for a good few years now, but it finally looks like John J. Rambo is set for a return to the big screen, with Sylvester Stallone revealing to Vulture that Rambo V is likely to be his next film.

“I’m getting ready for that. I’m starting to work out. I’m going to be appropriately vicious and all that stuff, but intellectual. A killer with a heart. Smart, yet stupid. Tall, yet short. Broad, but thin. You know what I mean. We’re going to try to cover all the boundaries.”

Rambo V has went through a few different scripts over the years (including Rambo V: The Savage Hunt, which would have seen the former green beret tracking a vicious creature that had been genetically engineered), and back in June it was reported that Sly was working on a script that »

Movie Review: The Expendables 3

15 August 2014 8:47 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

The Expendables 3 is the latest installment of the cheese-tastic, 1980s style, throwback action franchise. You may not think of this series of films as anything more than an exercise in geriatric yoga for the addled action stars of yore. But, the fact is The Expendables (2010) made $275M on an $80M budget and The Expendables 2 (2012) made $305M on a $100M budget. And that is serious worldwide box-office business.

The Expendables 3 involves some unfinished business. As it turns out, Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), had a partner who co-founded the group with him (a new background detail sheds some light on the team’s bloody history), Conrad Stonebanks (Mel Gibson), who is out to wipe out the entire team – especially Barney. The film is directed by Patrick Hughes, a young filmmaker with only two prior films to his credit. (No you never heard of either of them.) The writing team is led by Sylvester Stallone, »
