"Transformers 4" will have a distinctly different cast for its next installment. No Megan Fox, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley or Josh Duhamel. And, for the first time (some would say "thankfully"), no Shia Labeouf. However, despite the huge cast changes, the extremely profitable Transformers movie franchise is alive and kicking with director Michael Bay at the helm and Mark Wahlberg set to take over the lead role. In addition to Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz and Sophia Myles all are set to appear in the film. And now, an international flavor has been introduced with the casting of Chinese actress Li Bingbing. Bingbing has already started to cross over into American film, most recently co-starring in the Paul W.S. Anderson-directed .Resident Evil: »
Director Michael Bay’s untitled Transformers 3 sequel (a.k.a. Transformers 4) will be one of those movies that blurs the line between what is considered a full-blown reboot and franchise re-tooling. It will not break narrative continuity with the previous Transformers films; yet, it features an entirely new cast of human players and will introduce multiple robots-in-disguise that haven’t made the jump to live-action form before now.
The most-recently developed version of Jurassic Park IV has been described as a similar continuation of the over-arching story set in motion by director Steven Spielberg’s 1993 blockbuster - based on the late Michael Crichton’s novel – and its sequels, The Lost World and Jurassic Park III. However, JP4 is expected to stray away from all the previous films’ narrative formula (i.e. humans travel to an island that ...

Warning: Should this rumor turn out to be true, this article contains Major Spoilers for Transformers 4. If you are worried about potential spoilers. Turn away now.
For months, we’ve been hearing that Transformers 4 will be taking Michael Bay’s blockbuster franchise in a new direction – and likely serve as the first installment in a new set of films. So what exactly does this fresh franchise direction entail? A leaked (albeit unconfirmed) plot synopsis suggested that human scientists had successfully reverse engineered the Transformers – opening the door for wild alterations to the robots-in-disguise format.
However, Paramount Pictures was quick to “debunk” the leaked plot – which, as anyone that follows pre-release rumors is aware, doesn’t necessarily mean the details were inaccurate (the studio could simply be spreading misinformation to distract from a later reveal). The ...

Kiala again! From the XBox livestream! I have feelings to share with you about stuff I disliked. Enjoy.
Ahhhh the livestream. It always feels like attending a Tony Robbins motivational seminar - or a school assembly. I generally spend the entire thing hoping someone will trip or swear or say something blatantly offensive because I am a 12 year old at heart forever. And yet, this XBox event was (unfortunately for me) relatively smooth and nary an awkward moment to be found. I did manage to find fault with some stuff because criticizing amazing leaps in technology which I have no talent for is fun!
10. Not enough dogs.
If we now have the technology for an elite Seal trained sniper dog, why can't we have a dog (or better yet, a Kitteh) in every game? And not just one that follows you around like in Fable or Skyrim or whatever. »

Michael Bay's Transformers 4 has been quietly gearing up for production with little to no information about the robotic characters or plot surfacing. That changed today in the form of a substantial rumor report from JoBlo that is chock full of potential spoilers. Please proceed at your own risk.
According to the report that came from a marketing event, Autobots Optimus Prime and Bumblebee will return and Prime will be captured by the Decepticons. Amongst the Decepticons will be new villain Lockdown who happens to have a ship full of old decommissioned Transformers.
Prime will find the Dinobots amongst these Transformers and somehow bring them back to life. Not only that, he and Bumblebee will ride the Dinobots including Grimlock and Swoop into battle in Hong Kong.
Just yesterday it was confirmed that Chinese actress Li Bingbing had joined the cast and that the film would shoot partially in China. »
We always knew that Michael Bay's Transformers 4 would include some brand new robots. After all, one of the movies' big selling points for Hasbro is the fact that it allows them to sells tons of new toys to young fans (which Hasbro President and CEO Brian Goldner said fairly bluntly at the Ubs Best Of Americas 2012 Conference). What's been kept a mystery, however, which exploitable bots they would be introducing. Now it's possible that mystery has been solved. Warning: There are possible spoilers ahead. Read at your own risk. JoBlo has learned from a source that Bay's third sequel in the Transformers franchise will feature the Dinobot characters, including team leader/Tyrannosaurus Rex Grimlock. The site also adds that the villain will be Lockdown, "who has a ship full of decommissioned Transformers, including the dinobots, which are somehow brought back to life by a captured Optimus Prime."

As you more than likely know, work is afoot already on Transformers 4, with Michael Bay once again calling the shots (potentially for the last time on the franchise). And there have been changes this time around. We know that cast members Shia Lebeouf and Megan Fox won't be returning for the fourth instalment, and instead we'll have the pleasure of the likes of Mark Wahlberg, Sophia Myles, Li Bingbing, Kelsey Grammer and Stanley Tucci.
But the most important factor in these films aren't the humans, but the Transformers themselves (for better or worse). And there are some new rumours as to what new additions we can expect. Basically, it looks as though we'll be seeing the Dinobots and Grimlock on the big screen as well as Hound, »
With casting for Transformers 4 pretty much set, attention is beginning to turn to which robot warriors will appear in Michael Bay's franchise reboot. JoBlo shed some light as to some of the characters we're likely to see in T4, although all of this should be filed in the rumor column until officially confirmed by Bay, Hasbro or Paramount. That being said, the site claims that "a reliable source" has provided them with a bunch of new info about the sequel. Read on, but know that some of this stuff could be spoiler-y. First off, their source has confirmed that Transformers 4 will feature Dinobots, including fan favorite Grimlock. One of the villains of the film will be a character named Lockdown, who has a ship full of decommissioned Transformers including the...

Whenever a rumor like this hits regarding Transformers 4, Michael Bay usually comes out and denies it. JoBlo claims to have an inside source that reveals the identity of several robot characters that might appear in the movie. I'm going to throw up a Spoiler warning, so I don't get crap for ruining the surprise. If you read on, it's your own fault.
Like I said; this is only a rumor. There is no confirmation of this news yet, but it would be extremely cool if it turns out to be true! Why? Because it means that we will finally get to see the Dinobots, Galvatron and Hound up on the big screen. Here's what they report...
That's right, folks, our source has confirmed that Transformers 4 will feature none other than the famed Dinobots, including fan favorite Grimlock. No word on whether he'll retain his neanderthal voice, but one »

We already know that director Michael Bay is revamping the franchise with Transformers 4, bringing in a whole new cast including Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, and Bingbing Li. An unconfirmed rumor has surfaced that reveals potential spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.
According to unidentified sources, the director plans on bringing back the Dinobots from the 1980s Transformers animated series, including Grimlock. The report also indicates that one of the main villains will be a character named Lockdown, who possesses a ship full of decommissioned Transformers, including the Dinobots, who are reactivated by Optimus Prime. Both Optimus Prime and Bumblebee will reportedly ride the Dinobots Grimlock and a Pterandon (possibly Swoop) into battle in Hong Kong, which falls in line with the news from last month that the sequel will be partially shot in China.

Since the world collectively shrugged its shoulders at the news that Spike Lee would be directing a remake of Korean psychological action thriller Oldboy, out this Autumn, news has been pretty scant. But fear not, fans of Western bastardisations of your favourite Asian cinematic classics. Cult film Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance, the first in Park Chan-wook’s Vengeance trilogy (of which Oldboy is the second), has also been snapped up for a remake.
A partnership formed of brothers in arms Silver Reel and Lotus Entertainment, best friends forever, has been charged by the cinematic gods to ride the steed of truth, justice, and remaking Korean films by joining forces with Cj Entertainment and Transformers producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. This cinematic journey will truly be as good an adventure as Lorenzo’s name would suggest, for what is the art of cinema if not the recording of adventure? Well?
These plans are no modern revelation, »

"666 Park Avenue" was one of the biggest disappointments of the last TV season - both for viewers story-wise and for ABC ratings-wise. But fans of the show will finally have some closure when the network begins airing the remaining four episodes on Saturday, June 22nd.
Per TVLine the ill-fated spooker, which ABC pulled from the schedule following its December 2, 2012 broadcast, will reward loyal viewers with a finale on July 13. Speaking with the site recently, series star Rachael Taylor gave the final episode two very enthusiastic thumbs up, saying, “I love the ending. Everything gets completely flipped on its head, and it was very fun for me to play. My character is very different in the last episode. I’m really looking forward to people seeing the end, because shit gets crazy.”
At the ominous address of 666 Park Avenue, anything you desire can be yours. Everyone has needs, desires, and ambition. »

With the Oldboy remake by Spike Lee on the way this Fall and plans for Sympathy For Lady Vengeance somewhere out there in the production ether it is no small wonder that it took this long for someone to pick up where Warner Bros left off.
