My favourite best picture Oscar winner: The Sting

9 hours ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Continuing our series of Guardian writers’ picks of the great Academy Award winners, Andrew Pulver explains why the Paul Newman and Robert Redford caper is the most purely enjoyable film in Oscar history

No one, in all honesty, would go to the best picture Oscar list for a defining rundown of the best American cinema. Too many short-shelf life films get through the voting process and rise to the top: Crash? A Beautiful Mind? Really? Middling-to-decent tends to triumph. Actual dyed-in-the-wool classics are rare: The Deer Hunter and The Godfather, and possibly No Country for Old Men and Birdman, are among the only highlights of the past five decades.

"Alita: Battle Angel" Starts Shooting

7 February 2017 2:25 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Actress Jennifer Connelly ("A Beautiful Mind") has been cast as a villain in producer James Cameron's female 'cyborg' bounty hunter feature "Alita: Battle Angel", directed by Robert Rodriguez , based on Yukito Kishiro's Japanese 'manga' comics series, "exploring a young woman’s journey of self-discovery...":

Cast also includes Rosa Salazar, Jackie Earle Haley, Eiza Gonzalez, Lana Condor, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein and Christoph Waltz.

"...set in a 26th-century dystopian future, the story follows an amnesiac 'cyborg' (Salazar), rescued from a scrap heap to become a crime-fighting bounty hunter..."

"Robert and I have been looking for a film to do together for years," said Cameron, director of "Terminator", "Aliens" and "Avatar", "so I was pumped when he said he wanted to do 'Battle Angel'. He’s very collaborative and we’re already like two kids building a go-kart, just having fun riffing creatively and technically.

A reassuring letter from Michael Bay regarding ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’

6 February 2017 7:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

The Transformers franchise whilst being a multi-million dollar franchise, has had its up and downs (mostly downs) when it comes to critics and audience response. Pair that with the way people have been trolling certain other franchises, remakes and reboots over the last couple of years, and its not surprising that a director would maybe feel the need to reassure the fans of what is coming.

Director Michael Bay has done just that before the upcoming release of the latest installment. Here is what he had to say to the fans:

I’ve been living in this franchise for over 10 years now. For Transformers: The Last Knight, we put together a writers’ room designed to greatly expand our mythology, integrating our films in a whole new way. Every movie will interlink.

It was a huge task to expand mythology from the beginning of the world throughout history. We had a »

Transformers 5: Michael Bay has written you a letter

Simon Brew Feb 6, 2017

As the Superbowl spot for Transformers: The Last Knight lands (and you can see it here), Michael Bay's written to you...

Ahead of the premiere of the Superbowl promo for his upcoming movie, Transformers: The Last Knight, director Michael Bay – via the power of the Paramount Pictures Publicity Machine ™ - released a letter to you all.

It would be remiss of us not to pass the man’s words onto you, and thus here is what he’s had to say…

I’ve been living in this franchise for over 10 years now. For Transformers: The Last Knight, we put “together a writers’ room designed to greatly expand our mythology, integrating our films in a whole new way. Every movie will interlink.

‘Rings’ Review

3 February 2017 8:32 AM, PST | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

I have to admit before I start this review that I’m not the biggest fan of the Ring franchise. I’ve seen them, I don’t hate them, but I can’t say I ever loved them. Rings didn’t change that.  Unfortunately, what started as a chance to reinvigorate a franchise ended up making it look worse.

From the very outset, Rings feels more like a shoehorned idea rather than a major plot point. Whereas Samara seemed subtle before, she’s so omnipresent in this one that it feels artificial and strange.

The story of Rings is the story of Julia (Matilda Lutz), who travels across the country to find her boyfriend Holt (Alex Roe) after he goes missing. After running into his professor Gabriel (Johnny Galecki), she finds herself caught up in a large scandal and ultimately a part of the infamous curse. She sets out to »

Michael Bay Reflects On The Ways In Which Paramount’s Writers Room Whipped The Last Knight Into Shape

3 February 2017 6:53 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Paramount isn’t the first – nor is it likely to be the last – studio to establish a writers room to nurture a film franchise, but it’s surely one of the biggest.

We are, after all, referring to a studio that consistently hits the billion-dollar mark with its Transformers films, and one that will be hoping to uphold tradition – and perhaps even set a new record in the process – when Transformers: The Last Knight descends into theaters this June. Like it or lump it, The Last Knight is undoubtedly one of the biggest movies currently lining 2017’s summer slate, and Paramount is already beginning to stoke the embers of excitement ahead of Sunday’s grand trailer reveal at Super Bowl Li.

It marks something of a new chapter for the lucrative juggernaut, thanks in large part to that aforementioned writers room. Beyond The Last Knight, Paramount has drafted up early »

3 February 2017 6:47 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Everyone seems to have a strong opinion about Michael Bay, and now he's got something to say back to fans. He wants you all to know that not only is Transformers: The Last Knight the biggest entry yet in that franchise, but it's also likely his last. 

Bay has shared an open letter to fans on his official website, which you can read right here:

I’ve been living in this franchise for over 10 years now. For Transformers: The Last Knight, we put together a writers’ room designed to greatly expand our mythology, integrating our films in a whole new way. Every movie will interlink.

The Transformers 5 Super Bowl Spot Has Landed

3 February 2017 6:30 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The latest Transformers 5 spot can be seen during the Super Bowl, this Sunday.  Although, you can check out a :30 second version here!

The Super Bowl is always known for its hilarious commercials and amazing football action, but lately movies have gotten into the habit of releasing big trailers during the big game.  Michael Bay's latest Transformers movie will be part of what looks to be a massive movie lineup for Super Bowl Li.  In anticipation for its grand arrival, check out a shorter version of the Super Bowl spot for Transformers 5.

Unfortunately, there isn't much context in this short commercial.  All we know is that once again the world is in trouble and some Independence Day Resurgance-esque alien ship will be entering our atmosphere.  Plus, Bumblebee and Optimus Prime will have a climactic battle that will include a hammer.

Transformers: The Last Knight gets an official synopsis, Michael Bay discusses the film

3 February 2017 5:33 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We saw a trailer back in December [watch it here], and now Paramount Pictures has released the official synopsis for Transformers: The Last Knight, while Michael Bay has spoken in depth about his fifth outing with the Robots in Disguise (and suggested once again that this time may be his last).

The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock).

There comes a moment in everyone’s life when we are called upon to make a difference. In Transformers: The Last Knight, »

Box Office: ‘Hidden Figures’ and ‘La La Land’ Ride Oscar Wave on Soft Holiday Weekend

15 January 2017 1:23 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As far as the box office is concerned, the Martin Luther King holiday weekend might better be dubbed Memorial Day, as six new wide releases are weak or dying. Despite a wide array of product which should have boosted totals, this weekend looks to be down 19 per cent from last year.

On the other hand, Oscar contenders “Hidden Figures” (20th Century Fox) and “La La Land”(Lionsgate) continued to surf cresting audience enthusiasm to place first and second for the three day weekend.

School vacation Monday results may boost Universal’s “Sing” and possibly Disney’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” to higher positions. Animated musical “Sing” is holding well, with a 33 per cent drop. “Rogue One,” though now the top-grossing 2016 domestic release, is falling far faster than juggernaut “Force Awakens” a year ago.

New 24: Legacy trailer features the return of an original series character

11 January 2017 12:56 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A new trailer for 24: Legacy has been released, further showcasing the plight of Corey Hawkins’ ex-Army Ranger Eric Carter as terrorists attempt to kill him and fulfill an attack against America. The trailer also shows the return of Tony Almeida, played by Carlos Bernard in the original 24, as he’s recruited from prison to help stop the new attack.

Tony’s appearance in Legacy only further connects the reboot to the original series and one has to wonder how long it may be until Keifer Sutherland reprises his famous role as Jack Bauer for 24: Legacy, assuming he ever does, or if Mary Lynn Rajskub will also return as hacker Chloe O’Brien.

Are there any other original 24 characters you’d like to see in Legacy? Let us know in the comments below…
