Transformers 6 Plans To Try Something Totally Different

41 minutes ago

The Transformers franchise needs a shakeup. And by most accounts, that’s what’s happening. We’ve covered the Writers Room mentality employed by Paramount to try and inject creativity into the stagnant series, which has in turn led to the announcement of the next three Transformers movies. But they might not be a standalone trilogy, as you’d automatically assume. We hear Transformers 6 might be very different. Following Transformers: Age of Extinction, the Transformers films appeared to be in limbo. The movie made a fortune (as these movies tend to do), but the story laid out in Extinction didn’t really hook anyone. We know that Michael Bay is coming back to direct Transformers 5, but the sixth movie in the franchise, according to Hasbro (via MovieWeb) is going to be a spinoff movie focused on Bumblebee. In a release issued during the annual Hasbro »

Vin Diesel's XXX 3 Just Lost One Of Its Major Villains

1 hour ago

Vin Diesel has provided an update on the third instalment to the XXX franchise. Unfortunately, it.s not the best of news though, as it.s been revealed that Jet Li has left the production. But, before this departure could sink XXX: The Return Of Xander Cage into anything close to a crisis, it was confirmed that Donnie Yen has replaced Li, which isn't the worst trade off. Rather mysteriously though, sources close to Twitch Film revealed that Jet Li left the project for undisclosed reasons. But with the martial arts superstar off the production, there was now a gaping hole for Vin Diesel and company to fill. And The Last Witch Hunter actor didn.t miss a beat in casting Donnie Yen as Jet Li.s replacement. Diesel also took to Facebook to show an image of himself, Donnie Yen, and director D.J. Caruso working on a scene. ( »

Ryan Reynolds Ranks His Green Lantern Movie, On A Scale Of 1 To 10

1 hour ago

With Deadpol currently in theaters and already doing a bang up job making a nice bit of money, Ryan Reynolds. career as a superhero looks to finally be on the right track. In the not too distant past, though, it seemed like the actor would never get another shot at any super-powered character ever. Between his ill-conceived appearance as some weird, sorta Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and the huge failure of his outing in Green Lantern it looked to be out of the cards for him. And, recently, Reynolds admitted that his Green Lantern movie did, in fact, leave a lot to be desired. I would give it a scant... 4? Yeah, 3 or 4? One! It's A One! There.s nothing like an actor being honest about failed filmic efforts, even if they do come years after the fact. Ryan Reynolds appeared on Bravo.s Watch What Happens Live and responded »

How Many F-Bombs Deadpool Has In It

3 hours ago

It’s a good thing that Deadpool was given the R-rating that it craved so badly. Because this freedom gave the Ryan Reynolds led comic-book adaptation a chance to not only create some pretty graphic and gory fight sequences, but it also allowed the superhero adaptation to be littered with a mountain of profanity too. In fact it’s now been revealed that there are 84 uses of the f-word in Deadpool.  The good folks over at Kids In Mind, who like to keep an eye on films’ use of such vulgarity, sat down to watch Deadpool and count each and every use of the word “fuck.” Obviously they didn’t stop there though. Because they also made an extensive list of the other uses of profanity in the eagerly anticipated adaptation of the beloved comic-book character. And while the film’s use »

Zoolander 2 Is So Bad, A Famous Film Critic Bailed Mid-Screening

3 hours ago

Is there more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good looking? For Derek Zoolander there isn.t, but for those of us who appreciate good cinema, there totally is. Zoolander 2 hits theaters this weekend, and Ben Stiller's long-awaited male model comedy sequel hasn.t exactly received glowing reviews from those who have seen it. One such reviewer is legendary film critic Leonard Maltin, who deemed the film completely unworthy of his time . about halfway through watching it.   Indiewire has just released an article written by Maltin explaining why he felt compelled to walk out of his Zoolander 2 screening after merely an hour in the theater. He explains: The film was stupid right from the start. I told myself that I was wasting my time for no good reason. Still, I stayed. . Mind you, I thought the original Zoolander was pretty funny. I had no reason to »

4 hours ago

Even when he.s not playing Iron Man on the big screen, Robert Downey Jr. still plays superhero on occasion in real life. Using his fame for good, he.s helped out several charitable organizations, but also brightened up the day of many a few young Iron Man fans going through tough times. Most recently, the Marvel star recorded a special message for 9-year-old Domenic, who has cystic fibrosis and just got to spend a day as his own superhero, Iron Boy. Take a look! We didn't think the day could get any better for #IronBoyAU, then he got this message: @MarvelAUNZ @RobertDowneyJrhttps://t.co/B4pndSIeTr.

Downey gave the kind words after Domenic.s fun adventure as »

Sit back, relax, and cue the damn Cops theme song. After years of rumors we finally have confirmation: the Bad Boys franchise will soon return and blast its way back into theaters. With Martin Lawrence and Will Smith both on board to return to the iconic action franchise for Bad Boys 3, we feel safe in saying that we couldn.t be more excited for them to deliver laughs and chaos in spades.

The Kylo Ren And Han Solo Memes Are Even Better Than You'd Guess

4 hours ago

Nobody is having more fun with Star Wars: The Force Awakens than social media. At this point, pretty much every character in the film has his or her own high-profile Twitter account. One of the first was the Emo Kylo Ren account, which sets up the leader of the Knights of Ren as an emo millennial who.s dark and brooding and hates his family, in the same way an angry teenager does. Now a new series of memes has taken this idea to the next level, giving us an idea what it was like in the Solo household before Ben murdered everybody and left town. http://mamalaz.tumblr.com/post/139060736897/the-modern-adventures-of-han-and-ben-kylo-manip By taking clips of Harrison Ford and Adam Driver in other movies, and putting them together with new dialogue, we get the distinct impression that Han Solo was really glad when Ben finally left town, because raising him »

Emily Blunt Will Bring This Beloved Toy To The Big Screen

5 hours ago

In Hollywood’s continued efforts to mine every property ever for a movie franchise, kid’s toys (and the 30-minute commercials called cartoons that were created in the 1980’s to sell them) became another source of success following Michael Bay’s Transformers. Since then we’ve seen G.I. Joe see some reasonable success and Jem and the Holograms fail miserably. Now, My Little Pony, which has already seen an amazing level of success back on TV, is working it’s way to the big screen as well. And it seems they just added a major name to the voice cast: Emily Blunt. Emily Blunt joins Kristin Chenoweth, Tara Strong, and others to the cast of the planned animated film. While the movie is coming from much of the same team that created the TV series My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic,  »

How Many More Transformers Movies We Expect To Get

6 hours ago

While each new Transformers causes critics to grind their teeth and hide behind their sofas, movie fans can.t seem to get enough. The four films currently in the franchise have made nearly $1 billion a piece. We already knew there was going to be a Transformers 5 but get ready for even more giant robot action, as Paramount just announced release dates for numbers six and seven, as well. According to the studio, the next three Transformers films will be released at a rate of one per year beginning in 2017. Transformers 5, which had originally been planned as a 2016 release, is now set to break on June 23, 2017. Transformers 6 will hit June 8, 2018, and Transformers 7 will follow on June 28, 2019. While you would think that planning that far out would be a safe bet, the current Hollywood landscape practically requires studios to plan this far out. As it stands, Transformers 5 will be opening on the »

How Much Nudity Fifty Shades Darker Needs To Have, According To Dakota Johnson

7 hours ago

Dakota Johnson went from near unknown to near household name after starring in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey. While the movie was eviscerated by critics, it was embraced by fans (embraced, and then tied to the bed, likely). The novel the film was based on had two sequels and so the plan is for the movies to follow suit. This means we.ll be seeing much more of Dakota Johnson once again, although if she has anything to say about, she won.t be the only one you see. If Dakota Johnson has her way, her co-star Jamie Dornan will be giving us the full monty in next year.s planned Fifty Shades Darker. In an appearance on Bravo.s Watch What Happens Live alongside her How to be Single co-stars Leslie Mann and Alison Brie, Johnson was asked if she thought it was fair that we »

What Movies Does James Franco Regret Doing?

16 hours ago

Regret and mystery are two things that Hollywood are full of, and a lot of times you'll find the two factors intertwined like lovers in a passionate embrace. James Franco knows this, because he's taken both and woven them into a bit of a puzzle relating to some films he doesn't exactly see eye to eye with. While promoting his role in the limited series 11/22/63, James Franco chatted with The Hollywood Reporter about how he fell in love with the time travel thriller, as well as if he'd use the legendary plot device to change anything about his own life. It was with that challenge that he laid down the following vague statement about his earlier film career: When I was younger, I did a series of movies that I really didn.t like. I worked really hard on them, but they weren.t movies that I cared about. And »

Deadpool Opens To Red-Hot Numbers Overseas

18 hours ago

With critics mostly in love, and audiences eagerly waiting for Deadpool to grace the screen with his foul mouthed brand of justice, there's no doubt the film is this weekend's hottest ticket. But the big question of this weekend is still whether or not the Ryan Reynolds led, R-rated comic book film will live up to its pre-opening numbers. If the first seven markets are any indication, it looks like that promise will be fulfilled - and not just domestically. The opening results out of first seven international markets that have already released Deadpool have been reported by The Hollywood Reporter, and the results are $12 million strong. Even better, certain territories have seen record breaking performances coming from the Merc with the Mouth's salty antics. In particular, Fox has seen its best opening for one of their films in Taiwan with $1.4 million, the best opening for a superhero film in »

Criminal Trailer: Watch Ryan Reynolds Body Swap, Again

19 hours ago

If there's an award for "Best Body Swapped Performance" in Hollywood, Ryan Reynolds is clearly trying to win it. While this weekend is clearly all about Deadpool, a trailer for Reynolds' latest round of out of body action, Criminal, has been released in anticipation of the main event. You can watch the trailer for yourself below. For as big of a part Ryan Reynolds' character plays in the events of Criminal, it's not his role as a crucial CIA analyst that's going to be front and center to the film's plot. If anything, this recently released trailer by Lionsgate shows us that Kevin Costner's Jericho Stewart is the physical lead of the film. A loose cannon with a checkered past, Stewart is about to undergo an experimental procedure where said analyst is, for lack of a better term, "uploaded," into his mind. The purpose of this exercise is »
