This summer, Universal kicks off its monster reboot universe with The Mummy, which hits theaters on June 9, and will set the stage for a slew of other projects based on some of Universal's most beloved monsters and creatures. One of the other movies that has moved forward through the massive writers room lead by Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan is Van Helsing, which will be written by Eric Heisserer (Arrival) and Jon Spaihts (Passengers). While there is still very little we know about the story, writer Eric Heisserer shed some light on his approach to this vampire hunter character.
While most fans may remember the 2004 Van Helsing movie starring Hugh Jackman, this character goes back several decades, with Peter Cushing portraying him in the iconic Hammer Films such as The Brides of Dracula, and Anthony Hopkins portrayed him in the 1992 Dracula adaptation. While Eric Heisserer, who is coming off two »
For more than a decade, sound mixers Kevin O’Connell and Greg P. Russell worked hand-in-hand on some of the industry’s biggest box office hits, movies like “The Rock,” “Armageddon,” “Spider-Man,” and “Transformers.” It was a relationship born out of an early coupling on Ridley Scott’s “Black Rain” that later took flight in the mid-1990s when the two set up shop together at the Cary Grant mixing stage on the Sony lot in Culver City. In their time together, they landed Academy recognition 12 times, quickly becoming the Susan Luccis of the Oscars — consistently nominated, but never awarded.
Ten years ago, after the first “Transformers” film, O’Connell and Russell went their separate ways. This year, they’re back at the big dance together, though for different projects: O’Connell picked up his 21st nomination to date for Mel Gibson’s “Hacksaw Ridge,” while Russell is back in »

The A Cure for Wellness actress attended the film’s premiere on Monday night in New York City where she tells People that she is a “glass half full kind of girl” in regards to politics.
“I think the political climate we’re in is not the best one we could be in,” she says. “But I think if you were to try and find a silver lining in this situation, it’s that it’s mobilizing »

Asa Butterfield and Britt Robertson play star-crossed lovers in The Space Between Us, a sci-fi romance which, shockingly, is not an adaptation of a novel by Nicholas Sparks or Stephenie Meyer. It's still full of the sort of contrivances that usually get explained away by some well-read fan as being faithful to the source material, but it comes from an original screenplay. However, when you realise that the screenplay was written by Allan Loeb, author of last year's feel-bad turkey Collateral Beauty, you might start to understand why it's utter nonsense.
In the not-too-distant future, 16-year-old Gardner Elliot (Butterfield) is the first human born on Mars. Raised by scientists and kept secret from the people of Earth by aerospace CEO Nathaniel Shepard (Gary Oldman), Gardner rails against his sheltered life and longs to »

Since 2007, Michael Bay’s name has been synonymous with Transformers, bringing the long running toy line to the big screen with a series of movies more bombastic than the one that preceded it. While they are any but cinematic masterpieces, I personally think there is a lot of fun to be had with them (except for the unbelievably boring Revenge of the Fallen), but I may in the minority with many Transformers fans very vocal in their displeasure with the Master of Bayhem being the guiding force for the big screen exploits of their favourite transforming robots. Now, after a decade, those wanting Bay out are getting their wish, with the director finally making good on what he’s said a few times in the past and putting the Transformer franchise behind him. The bomb was dropped in an open letter to fans, while pimping the fact that this Summer’s fifth installment, »

Last night's Super Bowl showdown condensed a TV season's worth of drama into one unscripted evening, but let's be honest: You're really watching grown men bash each other silly as an excuse to catch those brand-new TV spots for upcoming marquee-name movies, right? Right? (Just go with us here.) A cavalcade of new trailers for this year's biggest blockbusters graced the air time in between sacks and fumbles last night, with eager fans getting an eyeful of fresh footage from the latest Fast and Furious and Transformers installments to the upcoming big-screen, »
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 »

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.

Directed by Michael Bay and starring Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Anthony Hopkins, Laura Haddock, Jerrod Carmichael, Isabela Moner and Santiago Cabrera, watch the big game spot for Transformers: The Last Knight.
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, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, »

1Most of the action during the Super Bowl took place off the field, with trailers for the latest in the blockbuster “Fast of the Furious” and Transformers” franchises dropping.
Here are all the trailer that debuted during Super Bowl Li, ranked from best to worst. We’ve also included the film’s release dates.
A giant wrecking ball. A missile-launching submarine. And Charlize Theron as the new villain? This trailer for the eighth “Fast and the Furious” film has something for everyone.
“The Fate of the Furious” opens April 14, 2017.
Our first look at the fifth “Pirates” film did not disappoint. Johnny Depp returns as Jack Sparrow, but the trailer focuses on a ghostly pirate ship. The special effects — including an undead gull and the dead walking on water — look incredible.

Fans of the Transformers franchise had a good reason to tune into the big game today, as Paramount Pictures debuted a brand new Super Bowl TV spot for Transformers: The Last Knight. In addition to the new footage, the Transformers Facebook page also did some pre-game coverage for the Super Bowl that had some interesting advertising for Transformers 5 weaved in. Specifically, they decided to show off some baby Dinobots.
The video, which debuted on the official Transformers Facebook page, is very strange, but does feature new looks at the Dinobots that are going to appear in Transformers: The Last Knight, which include Slug, Grimlock and Strafe. The video doesn't feature a ton of new footage from the actual movie, but it does have quick glimpses of what appears to be the Dinobots in action. The majority of the video is commentary done in the style of a prototypical football announcer, »
The Transformers films have had a long and storied history on the big screen. While the first movie was charming enough, it didn’t take long for the franchise to go off the deep end into dark territory. In fact, so dark was the territory, that it quickly became a slog to get through each one.
With director Michael Bay at the helm of the franchise, some have given up hope altogether that this next entry will be anything more than we’ve seen for the past several movies. However, it can’t be overlooked that the latest entry in the franchise, Transformers: The Last Knight, is the first product of the writer’s room, led by Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman.
This is an admittedly difficult thing to judge based on the trailers, because rarely has there been a bad Transformers trailer. This is a trend that continues in the »

“Bayhem” is back with a bang.
Among this year’s slew of Super Bowl commercials on Sunday afternoon was a new trailer for Michael Bay’s upcoming movie, “Transformers: The Last Knight,” the fifth installment in the children’s toy-inspired franchise. And while a short Super Bowl spot was shown during the Big Game and was released online earlier this weekend, an extended look was released on Sunday.
It will be autobot v. autobot in the latest installment, and it looks like Optimus Prime will be fighting his old friends in “The Last Knight.”

“The Last Knight” will see regular heavyweights like Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, and John Turturro return to the series, while adding others like “100 Things to Do Before School” actress Isabela Moner and Anthony Hopkins, who make their “Transformers” debuts.

The autobots are headed for the Super Bowl with a TV spot for Transformers: The Last Knight airing this Sunday during the big game. Fans can get an early look at the extended version, which features Anthony Hopkins, Mark Wahlberg, and Bumblebee vs. Optimus Prime.
“You want to know, don’t you?” Hopkins’ Sir Edmund Burton asks, “Why they keep coming here, to earth.” Perhaps it has something to do with Optimus’ “maker,” who asks the autobot, “Your world is dying. Do you seek redemption?” That’s when Optimus turns bad and dukes »

The fifth Transformers movie Transformers: The Last Night is scheduled to open on June 23 promises to bring a greater mythology to the series as the first product of an A-list writers room gathered by Michael Bay to brainstorm sequels and spinoffs. Bay hinted in a letter to fans on late Thursday night that Last Knight would mark his final time directing a Transformers title. Until then the upcoming tentpole stars Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Anthony Hopkins, Laura… »

Just because you watched the Super Bowl doesn't mean you've seen all the robot explosions Michael Bay had in store for the weekend.
The director has also shared an extended, 54-second Super Bowl ad featuring extra footage not seen during the game.
The Transformers spot sheds more light on the mysterious synopsis released last week, which teased that "heroes will become villains" in the fifth installment. Judging from this new footage, Autobot (aka the good guys) will be fighting Autobot in this film.

Optimus Prime has turned against his fellow Autobots in the Super Bowl Li teaser for director Michael Bay’s fifth and maybe final “Transformers” movie, “Transformers: The Last Knight.” The teaser adds a bit to the trailer released late last year, which showed a world where humans and Transformers are at war. Optimus Prime (voiced by Peter Cullen), the leader of the good Transformers known as the Autobots, has left Earth to search for his creators. As the teaser shows, we know he comes back and, for some reason, he attacks Bumblebee, one of his closest Autobot allies. There’s not too much. »
