Jessica Chastain may seem like she can do it all, but there's one project it looks like she just can't squeeze in. Attached as recently as this spring to "The Secret Scripture," Cineuropa now reports that Rooney Mara is the young female lead opposite Vanessa Redgrave in the film. She'll join Jack Reynor and Jeremy Irons in the Jim Sheridan directed film, based on the book by Sebastian Barry, about "a 100-year-old woman in a mental hospital and her relationship with her psychiatrist." Production will begin this fall. Alejandro González Iñárritu is keeping very busy. He's got "Birdman" ready to unveil at Venice, he'll be shooting "The Revenant" this fall, and he's also headed to the small screen where he'll direct the series "One Percent." And he's got some unlikely actors for the lead roles. Deadline reports that Ed Helms, Hilary Swank and Ed Harris are lining up roles in the show that's "set. »

It may have lost top spot at the box office to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, but Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction has pushed its worldwide haul to a whopping $886 million this weekend, further extending its lead as the highest-grossing movie of the year as well as surpassing the $709. million of the original Transformers and the $836.3 million of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. A billion looks all but assured for Age of Extinction, while the franchise high of $1.123 billion set by Transformers: Dark of the Moon is certainly an achievable target.
Transformers: Age of Extinction sees Michael Bay directing a cast that includes Mark Wahlberg (Pain & Gain), Jack Reynor (What Richard Did), Nicola Peltz (Bates Motel), Stanley Tucci (Captain America: The First Avenger), Li Bingbing (Resident Evil: Retribution), Sophia Myles (Underworld), Victoria Summer (Saving Mr. Banks), Titus Welliver (Lost) and T.J.

The annual Purge is being felt at the box office. Universal's horror sequel "The Purge: Anarchy" was No. 1 with moviegoers on Friday night, scaring up a solid $13 million, but holdover "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" may end up winning the weekend. "Anarchy" is expected to earn around $30 million for the weekend. So far, it's trailing its 2013 predecessor, with opened to $16.8 on its way to a $34.1 million opening weekend. However, "Anarchy" only cost around $9 million to produce and will have no problem turning a profit -- and no doubt spawning another sequel. Meanwhile, "Dawn" -- the sequel to 2011's hit "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" -- placed second on Friday, earning a strong $10.4 million. With Friday night out of the way, it will likely end up pulling ahead of "Purge" to win the weekend. So far, "Dawn" has earned an impressive $113.3 million domestically. There's some bad news »

Another Galway Film Fleadh came and went over the weekend, and the festival's big award, Best Irish Film, was actually shared between two films: Gerard Barrett's Pilgrim Hill follow-up Glassland, a tale of a young man trying to save his mother from addiction, starring Jack Reynor and Will Poulter, and Terry McMahon's (Charlie Casanova) Patrick's Day, about a schizophrenic named Patrick who finds a connection with a depressed woman on St. Patrick's Day. Both films received a great reaction at the festival, and are well deserving of the award. Noble, biopic of Christina Noble (Deirdre O'Kane) whose charity work lead to the creation of an international organisation which helps oppressed and marginalised children around the world, came in second to the pair. The best documentary award was also shared between One Million Dubliners, an examination of the history of Glasnevin cemetery, and Blood Fruit, telling the story of »

Well, X-Men: Days of Future Past’s stay as the biggest earner of the year didn’t last long, with Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction shrugging aside almost universal negative reviews to become the highest-grossing movie of 2014 so far, with a whopping $752 million worldwide just three weekends after its release. The fourth instalment in the Hasbro franchise looks set to become the first (and only?) release of the year to crack a billion – although The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies may have something to say about that.
Transformers: Age of Extinction is out now, with Bay directing a cast that includes Mark Wahlberg (Pain & Gain), Jack Reynor (What Richard Did), Nicola Peltz (Bates Motel), Stanley Tucci (Captain America: The First Avenger), Li Bingbing (Resident Evil: Retribution), Sophia Myles (Underworld), Victoria Summer (Saving Mr. Banks), Titus Welliver (Lost) and T.J.

It's a killer week for films, with Transformers: Age Of Extinction, Boyhood, How To Train Your Dragon 2 and Begin Again all officially out this weekend, so this particular issue of the Empire Podcast is bumper-sized. This is partly because of our interviews with young acting hotshot Jack Reynor and Texan old hand Richard Linklater, but it's mainly down to all the reviews.Then there's the news section, which covers everything from George R. R. Martin's willingness to extend his middle finger to the Disney decision to bring Dumbo back in a live-action feature film form. As for the Q&A portion, well, make sure you know your Baldwin brothers from the Sheen clan, because we talk in details about acting dynasties, and things get a little hairy. P.S.

The box office juggernaut that is Transformers: Age of Extinction just keeps on rolling. One day after becoming China’s highest-grossing movie ever, the Michael Bay-directed sequel has now passed the $600 million mark worldwide, with a domestic haul of $185 million and an international take of $421.2 million giving the film a whopping $606.5 million already. It’s surely only a matter of time before Age of Extinction overtakes Fox’s X-Men: Days of Future Past to become the biggest earner of the year so far, and at this stage it looks all but assured that it will go on to become the first billion dollar release of 2014.
Transformers: Age of Extinction is out now, with Bay directing a cast that includes Mark Wahlberg (Pain & Gain), Jack Reynor (What Richard Did), Nicola Peltz (Bates Motel), Stanley Tucci (Captain America: The First Avenger), Li Bingbing (Resident Evil: Retribution), Sophia Myles (Underworld), Victoria Summer »

Having passed China's highest grossing movie of all-time (Avatar) after just a few days of release, Transformers: Age of Extinction's worldwide total has passed the $600 million mark. The fourth instalment in the franchise has earned $225 million in China, and has so far taken over $185 million domestically. That's nothing compared to its overseas numbers though as it taken $421.2 million (including China), thereby giving it that worldwide cume of $606.5 million since opening on June 27th. It's likely that the Michael Bay helmed movie will be 2014's first $1 billion hit.

I’m not sure whether an indie thriller like Glassland will have any luck in capitalizing on actor Jack Reynor’s starring role in Transformers: Age of Extinction. The vast majority of destructo-porn addicts who sat through all three hours of Michael Bay’s latest didn’t in all likelihood leave the theater desperate to seek out Reynor’s other work. Though our critic Matt Donato claimed that the actor “makes us forget all about Shia Labeouf’s pissy Witwicky character,” there’s no use pretending Age of Extinction was in any way his show.
Still, Glassland‘s first teaser has just been released, highlighting both Reynor and star Toni Collette. And though there’s not much to go on from this look at the film, I’m liking what I see so far. Co-starring Michael Smiley and Will Poulter, the Gerard Barrett-written and directed film centers on a »

Prior to the production of Transformers: Age of Extinction, there was a deal in place between Paramount and motor vehicle company Polaris for them to create Transformers based off their machines. These would have included ATVs, snowmobiles etc. For whatever reason, the deal didn’t go through and the characters were scrapped.
Michael Hirtz (via Cbm) has now shared some of his concepts for what those Transformers would have looked like. They also write, “he informs us that these robots would’ve been relatively small as compared to the normal-sized Transformers. Somewhere around 8-10ft max, based on the types of vehicles Polaris manufactures. Hritz’s designs also do a great job of incorporating the look of Polaris’ vehicles by ‘exposing shocks and linkages, using roll-cages and vehicle structure, aggressive/colorful forms floating over blacked-out mechanical parts.’”

If you don't know the name Jack Reynor, you will soon. The actor made waves with his turn in the Irish drama "What Richard Did," which led to his role in this summer's biggest blockbuster, "Transformers: Age Of Extinction." And coming soon he's got a part in the highly anticipated "Macbeth" starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. But before that, he's going back to his indie roots with "Glassland," and the first teaser trailer has arrived. Co-starring Michael Smiley, Toni Collette and Will Poulter, and written and directed by Gerard Barrett, the story follows a young taxi driver trying to save himself and his family from the dark side of Dublin. Here's the official synopsis: In a desperate bid to save his mother from a crippling alcohol addiction and reunite his broken family, John, a young taxi driver on the fringes of the criminal underworld is forced to take a »

It’s been top of the Us box office for two weeks and it looks to be taking the crown from Mrs. Brown’s Boys D’Movie when it’s officially released here in the UK this Friday, but it looks like Transformers: Age of Extinction has broken new ground in China already, knocking Avatar from its box office record spot.
The film has grossed RMB740 million ($119.8 million) in its opening week to combine with the RMB628 million ($101.7 million) it took in its opening weekend. That gives Transformers: Age of Extinction a 10-day total of RMB1.37 billion ($221.9 million).
Avatar‘s has held the box office record since its release in 2009. The press release given to Flickering Myth also states that the Chinese currency is appreciated more, which means it has made more dollars per Rmb than James Cameron’s movie.
Paramount are yet to confirm these figures.
The movie has also way-surpassed its predecessor, »

The first teaser trailer for Gerard Barrett’s second movie, Glassland, has arrived. Starring Jack Reynor, Toni Collette and Will Poulter, it tells the story of a young taxi (Reynor) driver trying to save his mother from addiction who must make a life changing decision. The tone here is quite bleak and grim, which is something Barrett really embraced with his debut feature Pilgrim Hill, and first thoughts here are very, very promising. Reynor is a sublime talent. Forget Transformers Age Of Extinction where the guy hasn’t got room to scratch his nose, let alone showcase his potential. Dig out “What Richard Did” to get an idea of how amazing this incredible actor really is. Alongside the amazing Toni Collette and the always likeable Will Poulter, cast wise this is something brilliant! Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think in the comments! Glassland gets »
