Review: Elliot goes to war with 'Mr. Robot' in the riveting season 2 premiere

13 July 2016 8:32 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Mr. Robot has returned for a second season. I already published some spoiler-free thoughts on tonight's two-hour premiere, so now it's time to get into the specifics, coming up just as soon as I've discovered Seinfeld... "And this is why I'm different: sometimes, my mask takes over." -Elliot The Mr. Robot season 1 finale made an interesting choice in skipping over what seemed like major pieces of the larger fsociety plot — how the Evil Corp hack went down, what happened to Tyrell Wellick — to focus on Elliot dealing with the knowledge that he was Mr. Robot, and vice versa. At the time, I felt this was the right choice, since the show is ultimately about Elliot and what's going on inside his head, and his epiphany about having multiple personalities was much more important than any plot mechanics involving secondary characters. "Unmask"(*) actually rewinds to show Elliot executing the hack while Wellick watches — marveling that, »

Damon Expects Bourne Series To Go The James Bond Route In Future, Talks Recasting Role

11 July 2016 8:38 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

I'll never forget seeing the first trailer for The Bourne Identity. It was 2001 and, up until that point, Damon had acquitted himself quite nicely as a dramatic actor-writer in high-minded productions like Good Will HuntingSaving Private RyanThe Talented Mr. Ripley, and The Legend Of Bagger Vance. He and pal Ben Affleck crossed over into the A-list at the same time, thanks to their work as writers/actors in 1996's Good Will Hunting, but they seemingly split after that. Damon went serious, and Affleck went big. While Damon worked on the kinds of films mentioned above, Affleck ran around making bombastic blockbusters like Armageddon, Reindeer Games, and Pearl Harbor.

So the idea, as a follower of films, was that- of the two of them- Damon was more of the thoughtful artiste, while Affleck was more the celebrity movie star. 

That's what made the debut trailer for The Bourne Identity so attention-grabbing. »

Marilyn Manson is best known as the frontman of the Marilyn Manson band, whose music garnered much controversy from politicians and the public for their nihilistic lyrics, graphic imagery, and provocative statements. Manson got tied up in the aftermath of the deadly Columbine shooting when he was blamed by politicians and the media for inciting the violence with his music. Manson has appeared in many films including David Lynch’s “Lost Highway,” Michael Moore’s “Bowling For Columbine,” in which he discussed the media’s interest in scapegoating rather than focusing on broader societal issues, and a recurring role on FX’s “Sons of Anarchy.”

Mark Boone Junior is best known for his role on “Sons of Anarchy,” along with his performances in Christopher Nolan’s “Memento” and “Batman Begins,” Terrence Malick’s “The Thin Red Line,” and David Fincher’s “Seven.” He will soon appear in Nate Parker’s “The Birth of a Nation,” about Nat Turner, the leader of a slave rebellion in Southampton County, Virginia in 1831.

Let Me Make You a Martyr” will premiere at Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal next month. Manson will be in attendance.

How Michael Bay Responded To Those Kate Beckinsale Allegations

2 June 2016 10:54 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It’s been quite a week for airing cinematic grievances. John Crawley has now backtracked on his comments disparaging working with Keira Knightley on Begin Again, while Kate Beckinsale also made some rather unsavoury comments about Pearl Harbor director Michael Bay, too. However, now Michael Bay has come and insisted that all is still good between himself and the actress, explaining that Kate Beckinsale’s quotes were just spun by the dastardly media. The Rock, Bad Boys 2 and Transformers blockbuster director took to his own website to reveal that he and Kate Beckinsale have already laughed over the online kerfuffle, insisting that it’s just a "funny story" that has been blown out of proportion. Michael Bay wrote about the pair now being enemies: Well, totally untrue. Kate and I are friendly. She is a fantastic actress, very funny, witty lady, sassy, speaks her »

Michael Bay: Why am I a 'bad guy' for suggesting Kate Beckinsale lose weight?

2 June 2016 10:53 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Michael Bay sees things differently. Just days after Kate Beckinsale spoke about her experience with the famed director on Pearl Harbor and his jabs that she wasn’t too attractive and needed to lose weight, Bay has come out firing.   In a post on his website, Bay wrote, “This so called ‘problem of us not liking each other’ was reported by a tabloid-esque reporter after Kate appeared on an edgy English talk show, speaking about our meeting 16 years ago while casting Pearl Harbor. The reporter made her story into some scandalous confrontation, when it was nothing of the sort. Spoke to Kate today and she felt she told a funny story.” Bay continued, “So I guess I was the ‘bad guy’ 16 years ago for suggesting a trainer because she just had her new beautiful baby girl—and she was about to enter into an intensive action movie.” This point-counterpoint argument »

Michael Bay Says His Comments About Kate Beckinsale's Looks Were Misconstrued: '95 Percent of Leads in Movies Have Trainers'

2 June 2016 8:45 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Michael Bay has nothing but good things to say about Kate Beckinsale - and he's got the poster to prove it. The director issued a statement on his website Wednesday, in response to the comments Beckinsale made during an appearance on The Graham Norton Show last week about working with Bay on 2001's Pearl Harbor. "I'd just had my daughter and had lost weight, but was told that if I got the part, I'd have to work out," Beckinsale said. "And I just didn't understand why a 1940s nurse would do that." Bay shared a photo of a poster from »

Director Michael Bay responded to Kate Beckinsale‘s negative comments about his directing style on Wednesday, claiming the two are longtime friends and that they have spoken about the issue. “The reporter made her story into some scandalous confrontation, when it was nothing of the sort,” Bay wrote on his personal site. “Spoke to Kate today and she felt she told a funny story.” During a recent taping of the U.K.’s “Graham Norton Show” in a segment that never made it to air, Beckinsale said that Bay fussed over her looks for the film “Pearl Harbor.” “I think »

Michael Bay's Chauvinist Reputation Remains Intact and No One Seems Less Concerned About That Than Michael Bay

1 June 2016 3:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Michael Bay recently estimated his net worth at "half a B." So it isn't surprising that over the course of his career he hasn't felt the need to tinker with either his filmmaking method or his off-set persona, both of which reliably come off as unabashedly chauvinistic. Bay being critical of Kate Beckinsale's looks when they shot Pearl Harbor 16 years ago is absurd on every level, considering she's one of the most physically stunning actresses in the business and she nails the (presumably required) 1940s-era wholesome-yet-glamorous pinup look in the 2001 film.sc But the director gushing about Josh Hartnett's star quality and saying he hired Beckinsale because he "didn't »

Kate Beckinsale: Michael Bay Cast Me in 'Pearl Harbor' 'Cause I'm Not That Hot

31 May 2016 9:59 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Kate Beckinsale was just on "The Graham Norton Show" recalling all the times that sad blind fool Michael Bay has told the story of why he cast her in the 2001 movie "Pearl Harbor."

"I don't think I fitted the type of actress Michael Bay the director had met before," Beckinsale said. "I think he was baffled by me because my boobs weren't bigger than my head and I wasn't blonde." (She probably wasn't even joking with that.) "I'd just had my daughter and had lost weight, but was told that if I got the part, I'd have to work out," she added. "And I just didn't understand why a 1940s nurse would do that." Fair point. Here's more:

"And then, when we were promoting the film. Michael was asked why he had chosen Ben [Affleck] and Josh [Hartnett], and he said, 'I have worked with Ben before and I love him, and »

Why Michael Bay Was Impossible To Work With On Pearl Harbor, According To Kate Beckinsale

31 May 2016 9:37 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Michael Bay has a reputation for being difficult on set. Some view his behavior as that of a tyrant. Others appreciate how economical, and all-encompassing, Bay.s style might be. I mean, Transformers starlet Megan Fox once compared Bay to Hitler, and there.s really no way to spin that as positive. Years after you have left a Michael Bay set, you still end up talking about him, as when Pearl Harbor actress Kate Beckinsale recently remembered the bizarre reasons she felt working with Bay was beyond difficult. Kate Beckinsale was the third leg of a love triangle in Michael Bay.s historical epic, Pearl Harbor. But, as she recalls, she doesn.t think that the director would have been attracted to her, because she wasn.t exactly pretty or buxom enough. During a recent interview on the Graham Norton Show (via The Wrap), Beckinsale said of the bombastic filmmaker: »

DVD Review – 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi (2016)

31 May 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, 2016.

Directed by Michael Bay.

Starring John Krasinski, Max Martini, James Badge Dale, Freddie Stroma and Toby Stephens.

Synopsis:

Over the course of one hot, desperate night, a team of covert American military defence contractors must protect a secret CIA compound in the Libyan city of Benghazi from a wave of jihadists…

Michael Bay is a truly pernicious, right-wing filmmaker. He’s Clint Eastwood without either the old school charm or talent. 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi proves it beyond a shadow of a doubt, even though you likely suspected it for quite some time. It’s one thing for Bay to make loud, noisy trash such as the Transformers franchise, or even morally repulsive character drama like Pain & Gain, but when he makes a picture like 13 Hours and fumbles his way into modern geopolitics, you just want to take away his license to »

Kate Beckinsale Says Michael Bay Was "Baffled" by Her Looks While Filming Pearl Harbor

31 May 2016 4:52 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Kate Beckinsale is one of the most gorgeous actresses in Hollywood, but Michael Bay felt differently while working with the star on Pearl Harbor. Beckinsale appeared on The Graham Norton Show where she opened up about working with the famous Transformers director, telling host Graham Norton that he often would make comments about her looks and weight. "I think he was baffled by me because my boobs weren't bigger than my head and I wasn't blond," she shared. The British actress began filming the World War II film shortly after giving birth to her daughter.

Kate Beckinsale Says Michael Bay Only Cared About Her Looks While Making ‘Pearl Harbor’

29 May 2016 3:49 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Kate Beckinsale didn’t go as far as calling “Transformers” director Micheal Bay sexist, but the British actress definitely implied it during a recent appearance on “The Graham Norton Show.” “I think he was baffled by me because my boobs weren’t bigger than my head and I wasn’t blonde,” she said on the BBC One show, which airs in the United Kingdom. Beckinsale recalled her time working with Bay on the 2001 period film “Pearl Harbor,” and accused the director of caring much less about her acting chops than the acting talent of her male co-stars, Ben Affleck and Josh Hartnett. »
