Transformers: The Last Knight adds Anthony Hopkins

4 June 2016 1:09 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A post from the official Transformers Twitter account has announced the news that Oscar-winning actor Sir Anthony Hopkins will be joining the cast of Transformers: The Last Knight.

The man, the myth, the legend – help us welcome Sir Anthony Hopkins to the #transformers universe.

— #Transformers (@transformers) June 3, 2016

At the moment, few details are known about the fifth entry in the live-action Transformers film series and exactly who Hopkins will be playing, but reports say that the actor has signed on for an on-screen part, and he will not be voicing one of the film’s many alien robots.

Although best known for his work as Dr. Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal and Red Dragon, the actor also has appeared and been praised for his performances in such films as The Elephant Man, The Remains of the Day, Nixon and Amistad.

Bye Instant Watch: Sinatra, Flashdancers, and Spielberg's Worst

23 March 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

It's your last chance to watch the following multiple Oscar nominated titles for free on Netflix or Amazon Prime. There are more films leaving than these but you know The Film Experience isn't good copying and pasting press releases and calling it a day. It would make our lives So much easier but it's just not how we do. This is for you Oscar completists -- you know who you are. As is our habit, we've freeze framed the titles at random and just shared whichever image came up.

Got any feelings about these pictures? Or will you by midnight on March 31st? Do you think they deserved their wins and/or nominations?

10 Oscar Titles Leaving Netflix At The End Of The Month

Academy Awards Film Series: Scorsese's Spielbergian Biopic Comes Crashing Down Each Time After Take-Off

19 March 2016 9:35 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'The Aviator' movie with Leonardo DiCaprio as bizarre billionaire Howard Hughes: Bloated biopic. 'The Aviator' movie review: What's not good for the Spruce Goose… Imagine Citizen Kane directed by the Steven Spielberg of The Color Purple, Schindler's List, Amistad, and Saving Private Ryan. The final result would look something like a Barry Levinson film – for instance, the superficial and phony Bugsy. Or, an even more appropriate example, the superficial, phony, and bloated The Aviator. Except, of course, that Levinson is not the man responsible for the 2004 mega-production starring Leonardo DiCaprio as the eccentric, billionaire ladies' man Howard Hughes. Strangely enough, that man is Martin Scorsese, the director of hard-hitting films such as Taxi Driver, Goodfellas, and Gangs of New York. Scorsese, a fan of Old Hollywood, apparently wanted to have some fun with the reported $110 million budget (approx. $138 million in 2016) made available to him. The director no doubt had a ball while making The Aviator, »

Wayward Pines: Carla Gugino to Return to Fox Drama for Season 2 Encore

2 March 2016 3:56 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Look who’s (maybe?) been defrosted.

Carla Gugino will return to Fox’s Wayward Pines for Season 2, TVLine has confirmed.

Fans of the Fox drama will recall that Gugino’s character, former federal agent Kate, was cryogenically frozen by the First Generation brats during the season-ending three-year time jump.

On Wednesday, the actress posted a photo of herself on the series’ Vancouver set.

Gugino likely will appear on Wayward Pines in a limited capacity, given she recently booked a series regular role on Showtime’s Cameron Crowe rock drama Roadies. »

Ranking the Oscar-Nominated Performances in Steven Spielberg's Films

1 February 2016 11:20 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Mark Rylance’s best supporting actor nomination for Bridge of Spies marks the 13th time a performance in a Steven Spielberg movie has been nominated for an Oscar. Which of course calls for a list, so without any further ado here's Murtada's ranking. 

Oscar Nominated Performances in Spielberg Films Ranked

13- Anthony Hopkins - Amistad (1997)

Other Nominees: Robert ForsterJackie Brown, Greg KinnearAs Good as It Gets, Burt Reynolds – Boogie Nights, Robin WilliamsGood Will Hunting.

Winner: Williams

Did Hopkins have a big righteous courtroom speech? Must be, because why else was this performance nominated. The only thing I remember about it is that Hopkins robbed Rupert Everett of his nomination for My Best Friend’s Wedding.

Twelve more after the jump...
