Earlier this month, production began in Cuba on director Michael Bay's Transformers: The Last Knight, which is reportedly the filmmaker's last entry in the franchise. We know that Transformers: Age of Extinction star Mark Wahlberg is coming back as Cade Yeager, and it was also confirmed that original Transformers star Josh Duhamel is returning as Lennox. Earlier today, just before the holiday weekend, the franchise's social media feeds gave fans a cryptic hint that yet another original Transformers star may be ready for one last go.
The official Transformers Twitter debuted a mysterious video featuring a message in morse code, which translates to "E I'm Coming for you May 31." Because the attached tweet declares 'Something wicked this way comes', some have speculated that it could mean Shia Labeouf's Sam Witwicky is returning. And that 'Something Wicked' is a play on the characters last name. »
Narrated by the unmistakably sonorous tones of one Liam Neeson, the wondrous sizzle reel is a timely reminder of the craftsmanship and impressive visual effects featured in Bayona’s adaptation, as it inches closer and closer to a theatrical release.
Based on Patrick Ness’ novel of the same name, A Monster Calls places relative newcomer Lewis MacDougall into the role of Conor, an unassuming 12-year-old boy who seeks shelter from the trials and tribulations of everyday life – a poor mother, bullying and the like.
With a dash of Pan’s Labyrinth, it’s a journey that involves Conor escaping into “a fantastical world of monsters and fairytales” where Liam Neeson’s ancient deity stands as his watchful protector. Felicity Jones, Toby Kebbell, and Sigourney Weaver round out the impressive casting docket. »

Strangely enough, Pam Grier’s last Blaxploitation feature, 1975’s Sheba, Baby, would be the title to introduce her to a much wider audience thanks to its PG rating. Though undoubtedly adult in theme, it’s a kittenish exercise compared to the violence, gratuitous sex, and shameless taken-for-granted racist and misogynistic antics of earlier efforts. Its classification as the final chapter of Grier’s Blaxploitation days is also sort of a misnomer, since this refers to the last time she’d don her famous persona as an action star in pursuit of a more serious career, heading into Drum (a sequel to the infamous Mandingo), starring opposite Richard Pryor in Greased Lightning, and even a Ray Bradbury adaptation in Something Wicked This Way Comes (1983). But 1975 was one of several sterling years for Grier, headlining three films, though none of them would eventually reach the same iconicity as the prior year’s »
