Bayghazi

I admire Michael Bay as a director, I really do. He is a filmmaker without guile, his images transparent in their vapid grandiloquence. The qualities and values of maximalism, crassness and jingoism that have consistently garnered mockery and acrimonious distain by many are not ones audiences are cleverly exposing, but most often are simply accurate characterizations of the attitudes such films as the two Bad Boys, Pearl Harbor, and his solely-helmed Transformers franchise directly espouse. It may be hard to imagine a film more gaudily self-evident in its values and the force of its aesthetics as the sprawling effects goliath and techno-anti-humanist Transformers: Age of Extinction, but in fact Bay’s most tidily budgeted and CGI free films of recent years, 2013’s true crime Pain & Gain and this year’s true war 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi are his most honest and perceptive, and, because of this, his best. »

25 movie trailers that gave away way too much

From Terminator films and Jurassic World through to trailers with the ending in them...

One of the trailers for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is the latest to ignite grumbles about just how much is given away in promos for movies.

This list looks at 25 films where the trailer has given away more than it really should in its promos - and it goes without saying that spoilers lie ahead for each of the movies. Don't read or click on individual entries of films you've not seen if you don't want to be spoiler sullied!

25. Jurassic World

Director Colin Trevorrow was amongst those who expressed disappointment at this one particular promo for Jurassic World. In it, we see Chris Pratt riding on his motorbike, alongside velcoraptors that surprisingly don't appear to be eating him. Presented out of context, the scene just looked a little daft. But »

What Happened to '13 Hours' at the Box Office?

18 January 2016 | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Michael Bay, emperor of the action blockbuster, king of the fireball, may demand that everything in his life be awesome. So why were the opening weekend grosses of "13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi" anything but awesome?

Here was Bay's biggest stab at seriousness since "Pearl Harbor" 15 years ago: a based-in-fact war drama about recent events, staged with the kind of movie mayhem that no one does better (or at least bigger and louder), with the bonus of being tied to a hot-button issue that has much of red-state America up in arms. Plus, it follows on the heels of other patriotic, pro-military hits released during January, like "Lone Survivor" and "American Sniper."

Yet, it came in fourth with an estimated $16.0 million, ranked behind "Ride Along 2." "13 Hours" came in behind modest projections of $18 to $20 million. It's the lowest opening for the "Transformers" franchise director since his sci-fi flop "The Island »

Box Office: 'Ride Along 2' Wins Weekend, Best Picture Oscar Nominees Get Big Bumps

17 January 2016 10:59 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Heading into the weekend, moviegoers weren't really given quality new products, and they responded in kind. The debuts of "Ride Along 2" and the Donald Trump-approved "13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi" couldn't stop the box office from taking a 22% dive from the same frame last year. The Ice Cube and Kevin Hart buddy cop sequel took in $34 million, which is actually less than the opening weekend haul of $41 million the first movie earned in 2014. It's likely not what Universal was hoping for, but perhaps the mostly negative reviews, coupled with the fact that "Ride Along 2" offered little deviation from the formula from the first film, played a role. Read More: 2015: The Hits, The Flops, And The Year In Box Office Michael Bay's Serious Explosions Movie will likely wind up with $19 million after the long weekend wraps, making his first film since 2005's "The Island" to debut under $20 million. »

'Ride Along 2' #1, 'Revenant' Holds Strong and 'Star Wars' Crosses $1 Billion Internationally

17 January 2016 9:20 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Ride Along 2 was unable to top its predecessor but an estimated $34 million is enough to top the weekend box office, followed closely by Fox's The Revenant, which dropped only 26% in its second weekend in wide release. Both films finished ahead of domestic box office king Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which fell to third in its fifth weekend in release while becoming only the fifth film to ever cross a major international milestone. Meanwhile Michael Bay's 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi performed just slightly under expectations while Lionsgate's animated pick-up Norm of the North exceeded our most pessimistic of expectations. A selection of this past Thursday's Oscar nominees also added a few theaters, delivering results worth taking a look at. Starting at the top, 2014's Ride Along debuted with a whopping $41.5 million over the three-day weekend and $48.6 million for what was a four-day, Martin Luther King weekend record. »

'Ride Along 2' and 'Revenant' Look to Remove 'Star Wars' from Its Perch

14 January 2016 4:00 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Saturday Update: Ride Along 2's Friday estimates came in at $12 million, $2.4 million short of the original. Similarly, the film fell short of its predecessor's "A" CinemaScore, pulling in a "B+" from opening day audiences. Depending on your source, estimates for the four-day weekend range from $35-40 million, putting it anywhere from $8-13 million short of the original's impressive 2014 performance and possibly push the comedy sequel to second place for the weekend behind our next film. With an estimated $9.3 million, The Revenant took second on Friday, but could score a #1 finish for the weekend as it targets a $37-38 million over the four-day. Michael Bay's 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi took in an estimated $5.9 million on Friday. The film scored an "A" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, which should keep it on track for a $20-21 million four-day. The weekend's final newcomer is Lionsgate's Norm of the North, »

When things go wrong on a cinema trip, from bad customer service, noisy audiences, to, er, 'other things'...

As part of our survey on the behaviour of audiences in British cinemas, and how well cinema chains respond to it, we asked a couple of open questions. In this post, we're looking at where we asked for specific examples of good or bad behaviour and practice you've experienced from your cinema visits. We had over 2000 responses, so we've had to pick and choose. But here's a flavour of what you told us.

We've quoted verbatim, save for correcting the odd typo...

Technical problems

"We went to see The Martian at Cineworld in Nottingham recently. The first ten minutes of the movie was unwatchable, as the projector wasn't in focus. We went to alert the staff, who, while very off-hand and disinterested, did get the problem fixed. People arrived »
