Between director Michael Bay's personal website and the social media channels for Transformers: The Last Knight, there have been a slew of updates from the set, whether it be photos introducing new characters, or videos featuring new scenes being shot. Ever since filming started last month, Michael Bay has been sending out official photos of the new Autobots and Decepticons that will be featured in this sequel, and today we have another new vehicle reveal. The director gave us our first look at a new Decepticon known as Onslaught.
The photo debuted at MichaelBay.com, although the director wouldn't reveal any further details about this character. Fans of the original animated series may remember Onslaught as the leader of a group known as the Combaticons, who would all turn into the combined massive robot known as Bruticus. We don't know for sure if the Combaticons or Bruticus will be »
We now know that a new Decepticon will be making his presence felt in Transformers: The Last Knight as it has been revealed today that Onslaught is coming to the franchise. The villainous leader of a group of military elite Decepticons known as the Combaticons, it remains to be seen how he'll be portrayed here, but this is a character fans have been waiting a very long time to see in live-action. Set to be released on June 23rd next year, the movie will feature the return of Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager as well as new roles for Isabela Moner and Jerrod Carmichael. Production on Transformers: The Last Knight is set to begin on June 6th, and will then move to currently unrevealed locations around the world as a new adventure begins. With Bay back in the director’s chair, the screenplay for the movie was written by Iron »

"Your innocence will never abandon you..." Focus World has debuted a brand new official Us trailer for Natalie Portman's directorial debut, a drama called A Tale of Love and Darkness, set against the backdrop of the end of the British Mandate for Palestine and the early years of the State of Israel. Natalie Portman plays Fania Oz, the mother of Amos Oz, a person from real life who eventually becomes a writer, journalist, and advocate of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The film focuses mostly on his youth and his relationship with his mother. The cast includes Amir Tessler as the young Amos Oz, as well as Gilad Kahana, Ohad Knoller, Makram Khoury and Rotem Keinan. This looks powerful with some stunning cinematography by Slawomir Idziak (of Black Hawk Down, Gattaca). Have a look below. Here's an official Us trailer for Natalie Portman's A Tale of Love and Darkness, »

Natalie Portman will be seen in a second Terrence Malick film soon (fingers crossed), as well as new films from Xavier Dolan, Alex Garland, and Pablo Larraín within the next year, but before that, she’ll finally debut her first directorial effort in U.S. theaters this summer. Following a premiere at Cannes Film Festival last year, we now have the U.S. trailer for A Tale of Love and Darkness.
Based on a bestselling book of the same name by author Amos Oz, it chronicles Oz’s early life during the end of the British Mandate for Palestine and the beginning of the new formed Jewish state. With cinematography from Slawomir Idziak (Black Hawk Down, Gattaca), the reception thus far has been a bit muted, but we’re looking forward to see what Portman can do behind the camera considering the great directors she’s worked with thus far. »

To add to his problems, Tom Sizemore has now lost his manager after being arrested on a domestic abuse charge this week. In a statement provided to TheWrap, Dtla Entertainment Group and Charles Lago, Sizemore’s personal manager for the past seven years, said that, due to the arrest, “we have come to the conclusion that we cannot continue representing Sizemore in good conscience. We cannot condone Sizemore’s continued abuse of drugs and violence against other individuals.” Lago and Dtla also denied Sizemore’s claims that they had stolen money from the “Black Hawk Down” actor.

When Universal's Fast & Furious 8 started production earlier this summer, the sequel started a tradition known as Fast Fridays, where the filmmakers would share a special behind-the-scenes video that offers a glimpse at what scenes they shot that particular week. It seems Paramount's Transformers: The Last Knight is starting a new tradition of their own dubbed Transformers Tuesday, where they will share a new video each week for Transformers 5.
This week's video, which debuted on the Transformers Facebook, reveals a scene that features a number of vehicles travelling down a highway, before a massive explosion takes out three of these SUV's, which are seen rolling end over end on this desolate stretch of road. This video also gives us brief glimpses of Michael Bay in action, setting up this explosive scene. We don't know where exactly in the movie this scene will take place quite yet, but hopefully we'll get »
Shooting is currently under way on Transformers: The Last Knight, and as you can see below, the first promo banner has been spotted in New York City's Times Square. I'm far from an expert with this franchise, but if you can identity exactly what Optimus Prime is fighting, feel free to sound off with your theories in the comments section below. They look a little like Dinobots to me, but it's hard to say. Set to be released on June 23rd next year, the movie will feature the return of Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager as well as new roles for Isabela Moner and Jerrod Carmichael. Production on Transformers: The Last Knight is set to begin on June 6th, and will then move to currently unrevealed locations around the world as a new adventure begins.

The Importance Of Doubting Tom screens Sunday July 17th at 6:30pm at Landmark’s The Tivoli Theater as part of the St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase. Ticket information can be found Here
Local actress and filmmaker Vanessa Roman presents her years-in-the-making feature debut The Importance Of Doubting Tom, a romantic screwball comedy set against the backdrop of a dart league. It tells the story of Gwen, who is shaken and confused by a recent breakup from the guy she thought was the one, but something doesn’t seem right. In searching for the truth, mixed identities, comic hijinks, and lover’s games ensue in this. Roman based her original script both on the classic Oscar Wilde play, The Importance of Being Earnest and on her experience playing darts at St. Louis’ own Blueberry Hill, which is where she met her husband John.
Roman has assembled a first-rate cast and crew »

Come Thursday, July 21, Activision and developer Infinity Ward will be staging a presentation at San Diego Comic-Con about all things Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
Clocking in at one hour in length, the studio is expected to cast light on “the creative process of crafting the campaign” at the heart of Infinite Warfare. Catapulting the Call of Duty series into the far-future, it’s understood that the creative team is looking to seminal war movies in the vein of Saving Private Ryan and Black Hawk Down as inspiration.
We already know that Game of Thrones star Kit Harington will lend his likeness to the game’s chief villain, though Activision confirmed today that its collection of Hollywood talent also features Brian Bloom (The A-Team, Once Upon a Time in America), Jamie Gray Hyder (True Blood), David Harewood (Supergirl) and Jeffrey Nordling »

Michael Bay has shared a new behind the scenes image from Transformers: The Last Knight, and while it doesn't exactly reveal any new plot details, we do at least know that this next instalment of the divisive franchise will feature explosions aplenty (though did you really expect anything else?). It's unclear whether or not the movie will have any sort of presence at Comic-Con, but it's possible. Set to be released on June 23rd next year, the movie will feature the return of Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager as well as new roles for Isabela Moner and Jerrod Carmichael. Production on Transformers: The Last Knight is set to begin on June 6th, and will then move to currently unrevealed locations around the world as a new adventure begins.

Ever since production started on Paramount's Transformers: The Last Knight, director Michael Bay has been sharing photos of the vehicles that will be used in this highly-anticipated sequel. We've already gotten glimpses of Megatron, Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and the new Transformer Squeeks, and today the filmmaker has unveiled another returning Autobot, Drift. We also have word that the growing cast has a new addition, with Santiago Cabrera coming aboard.
Drift made his Transformers franchise debut in 2014's Transformers: The Age of Extinction, where his automotive form was a 2013 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse. MichaelBay.com reveals that, in Transformers: The Last Knight, this Autobot will be a Mercedes Amg Gt R. Ken Watanabe voiced Drift in the last Transformers movie, but it isn't known quite yet if he will return to voice the character in this follow-up.
In related news, Santiago Cabrera has joined the cast in an unspecified role. »
Voiced by Ken Watanabe (it currently remains to be seen whether or not he will return), Drift was introduced in Transformers: Age of Extinction and tasked with watching over the Yeager family when we last saw him. When he returns in Transformers: The Last Knight, the Autobot will have a new look as you can see below. Previously a black-and-blue Bugatti Veyron, he'll now be a Mercedes-amg Gt-r. Set to be released on June 23rd next year, the movie will feature the return of Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager as well as new roles for Isabela Moner and Jerrod Carmichael. Production on Transformers: The Last Knight is set to begin on June 6th, and will then move to currently unrevealed locations around the world as a new adventure begins.

Nantucket, Mass. — Oliver Stone pulled no punches and named names in detailing the struggle to finance his new movie about National Security Administration whistleblower Edward Snowden during a Q&A Saturday with fellow director Bennett Miller.
During the wide-ranging discussion, held as part of the Nantucket Film Festival, Stone also weighed in on his lack of enthusiasm for most serialized TV dramas, his disdain for the “adulation” of the U.S. military in many contemporary films and how Dino De Laurentiis dashed his hopes for “Conan the Barbarian” to have blossomed as a long-running franchise.
The intimate gathering at a private home on the water included actor Zachary Quinto, who plays journalist Glenn Greenwald in “Snowden,” and numerous writer-directors with pics at the fest, such as Mike Birbiglia (“Don’t Think Twice”), Julia Hart (“Miss Stevens”), Clay Tweel (“Gleason”) and Chris Kelly (“Other People”). The Nantucket fest, which wraps Monday, »

Ever since production started on Transformers: The Last Knight late last month, we've already learned that a few of our favorite Autobots and Decepticons such as Megatron and Bumblebee will be back for this sequel. Today, director Michael Bay took a break from the production to introduce a brand new robot character, Squeeks. The director is seen in the first of two new photos alongside Squeeks and his new co-star Isabela Moner.
We're pretty sure Squeeks is an Autobot, with the director debuting two new photos on his official website MichaelBay.com. Squeeks is a 1960s/1970s Vespa scooter, and since we see what appears to be a junkyard in the back of this photo, it's possible that Isabela Moner's mystery character discovers Squeeks in this automotive graveyard. This image comes just a few days after the Decepticon cop car Barricade was unveiled.
The Last Knight centers on Optimus Prime, »
After heading to WWII for Christopher Nolan‘s Dunkirk, which has recently kicked off shooting, Tom Hardy will return to the battlefield, in a different form. He’s strapping on a camera to play British war photographer Don McCullin, Deadline reports. Along with Dunkirk, Hardy is no stranger to fictionalized wartime, with some of his first features being Black Hawk Down and The Deserter.
The film will be an adaptation of McCullin’s autobiography, titled Unreasonable Behavior, but whether or not the film will share the same name is yet to be seen. The script is penned by screenwriter Gregory Burke, who made a name for himself with last year’s Jack O’Connell-led drama ’71.
The autobiography charts McCullin’s firsthand account of his journey from living in poverty to becoming a famous photojournalist. The book (which one can pick up here) is said to be unflinching in its depiction, »

'To punish and enslave.' That's the motto of Decepticon Barricade, who returns in Transformers: The Last Knight under the guise of a police cruiser. This robot in disguise is just the latest character confirmed for the impending sequel, which is shooting right now under the direction of Michael Bay. It was Bay who first shared this image of the mighty Decepticon on his website.
Always the 'bad cop', Barricade was first seen in the original 2007 Transformers movie and went onto appear in the next two sequels, 2009's Revenge of the Fallen and 2011's Dark of the Moon. He wasn't a key player in Age of Extinction, but he did show up in footage from the Barricade at the Battle of Chicago, shown to demonstrate how dangerous these robots are. Barricade is known as a very 'complicated' robot and is notorious for his fractious' attitude, even by Decepticon standards. While »
The latest vehicle to be revealed from Michael Bay's Transformers: The Dark Knight is Barricade, a character who was actually killed off back in 2011's Dark of the Moon (somthing Josh Duhamel, who released the image via Twitter, acknowledges below). How exactly he's been resurrected remains to be seen, but the villainous Decepticon looks very cool. It will be interesting to see who's revealed next. Set to be released on June 23rd next year, the movie will feature the return of Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager as well as new roles for Isabela Moner and Jerrod Carmichael. Production on Transformers: The Last Knight is set to begin on June 6th, and will then move to currently unrevealed locations around the world as a new adventure begins.
