The Apes, Trains and Brains of Summer Sci-Fi

11 hours ago | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

There’s no shortage of love for the way Marvel has crafted its Cinematic Universe, especially from yours truly. They’ve created an entire market for themselves by weaving nine — soon to be ten — movies together into an impressive spandex suit. From Iron Man in 2008 to this year’s unofficial summer kick-off movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier, every Marvel movie is the next piece in a much larger puzzle. Like clockwork, we wait in darkened theaters through lengthy credits to get to the end, where a little tease usually awaits for what comes next. Each film is built with the next stage in mind. It’s a phenomenon not limited to Marvel, though. They simply seem to have perfected it. Warner Bros. is about to set off on a voyage to build its DC Comics universe. And Michael Bay this summer rebooted his entire franchise and took Transformers in a new direction. Every »

‘Transformers’ breaks box office records in China: what it means for the international market

23 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Transformers: Age of Extinction, Michael Bay’s fourth film in the franchise, broke a box office record in China this past weekend, surpassing $300 million and becoming the first ever film to do so.

The Hollywood Reporter had the news Sunday, noting that it puts Age of Extinction well on its way to breaking the $1 billion mark globally for the year and not far off from the $1.12 billion earned by Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

At first this news may not sound surprising. Bay made a movie set in China, loaded it with Chinese product placement, cast local Chinese actor Bingbing Li and utilized Chinese resources as part of the shoot, and the effort paid off handsomely.

But the bigger side of the story is that Age of Extinction is one of the first films that was released simultaneously with the American release, effectively minimizing some of China’s more rampant bootlegging of Hollywood movies. »

Sony has just released three new posters for Fury, the upcoming war film from director David Ayer (Sabotage), which sees Brad Pitt (Inglourious Basterds) and the commander of a tank unit at the end of World War II. Check them out here…

 

April 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theater, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy (Brad Pitt) commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.

Fury is set for release in the UK on October 24th and will open in the States on November 14th, with a cast that also includes Shia Labeouf (Transformers), Michael Pena (American Hustle), Logan Lerman (Noah), Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter) and Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead). Watch the trailer here.

See Nicki Minaj As a Four-Armed Cartoon Giant on Steven Universe

27 July 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Nicki Minaj will guest-star on Cartoon Network's Steven Universe, an animated series about a boy named Steven who joins three women as guardians of the galaxy. Nicki Minaj will voice Sugilite, a powerful four-armed giantess formed when two other characters — Garnet and Amethyst — fuse together. (It's like Transformers, only with gem-powered heroines.) She's got way too many eyes, a lot of sass, and an awesome weapon that's a wrecking ball in the shape of a fist. When she comes together, she says, "I forgot how great it feels to be me." You can watch the entire episode when it airs on Thursday, August 21, on Cartoon Network, but for now, you can enjoy the clip below when Sugilite makes her grand entrance. »

27 July 2014 10:52 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

<< Continued from "Weekend Report"Playing at 361 theaters, spy thriller A Most Wanted Man cracked the Top 10 with $2.7 million. That's the second-biggest opening ever for distributor Roadside Attractions, and is noticeably higher than last year's Mud ($2.2 million). With strong reviews and built-in curiosity surrounding the final lead role from Philip Seymour Hoffman, this should be a solid performer in the weeks ahead.Richard Linklater's Boyhood expanded to 107 theaters and earned $1.73 million this weekend ($16,121 average). The movie has now earned $4.1 million, which ranks fifth all-time for distributor IFC Films. According to IFC, there will be an aggressive expansion over the next few weeks that will include a national television advertising campaign. It's unclear exactly how high this can go, but a total north of $15 million seems like a likely outcome.Gabriel Iglesias stand-up flick The Fluffy Movie opened to $1.3 million from 432 theaters.

‘The Death of Superman Lives’ Trailer: You’ll Believe Nicolas Cage Could Fly

25 July 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

I’m not going to rehash the story of when I met Kevin Smith while working a movie theater box office in the mid ’90s and how he told me about the experience of writing a Superman movie (those days filmmakers didn’t have to be guarded about things being easily spread on the Internet after chatting with fans). You can read what he said then in a piece I wrote early last year on the Kickstarter campaign for The Death of “Superman Lives”: What Happened? Now it’s time to see what Smith says now, in the first trailer for the documentary, which is about the failed project. Also in this trailer are a lot of other prominent people who worked on Superman Lives, including director Tim Burton (who is nearly driven to suicide talking about the sad fate of the film on camera), Lorenzo di Bonaventura (then the Warner Bros. exec who greenlit the »

Will Arnett, Megan Fox share Tmnt love with Comic-Con crowd

24 July 2014 10:01 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

For the human stars of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, it's all about Michelangelo.

When asked by a fan during a Comic-Con panel which member of the sewer-dwelling, pizza-loving superhero team was their favorite, Megan Fox and Will Arnett both picked the nunchaku-wielding member of the Ninja Turtles. However, Fox didn't appreciate Arnett "stealing" Mikey before she had a chance to answer the question.

"I've been saying that for months!" Fox protested.

"There's only four of 'em!" Arnett snapped back.

The cast and crew of the comic book reboot unveiled a pair of extended scenes Thursday from the upcoming film in Hall H, the largest venue inside the San Diego Convention Center.

The first scene showed off the moment when journalist April O'Neil, played by Fox, first encounters the Ninja Turtles in a subway station. The second was a snowy chase sequence in which O'Neil and Arnett's cameraman character, Vernon Fenwick, »

Hasbro’s Comic-Con Breakfast Recap: Images and Video of All Things Transformers

24 July 2014 8:32 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Transformers has been a household name for 30 years. While there have been many iterations - the original ‘G1’ series of the ‘80s, the reedited ‘G2’ in the early ‘90s, the CGI wizardry of Beast Wars and Beast Machines, and the Japanese/American co-productionTransformers: Armada - the rise of Michael Bay’s tetralogy has - if you will forgive the pun - transformed and expanded the storied franchise to the point where Hasbro held its own convention-within-a-convention this morning to celebrate the many, many, many ancillary versions of the brand. The breakfast expo included a Transformers museum, footage from multiple concurrent TV series, a build-your-own-Transformer buffet, a beta test of a free Mmog, a variety of nostalgic and ironic repaints, a preview of upcoming toy lines, a selection of non-toy ancillaries, and even a few of the brand’s shepherding executives.

24 July 2014 7:52 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Shia Labeouf showed up in court on Thursday to face his 'Cabaret' charges. 

Shia Labeouf showed up at Manhattan Criminal Court on Thursday, July 24, in New York City to face his criminal trespass, disorderly conduct and harassment charges after disturbing a performance of Cabaret at NYC's Studio 54 on June 26.

Though he refused to shave his neck beard for his court appearance, the 28-year-old actor did don a sleek, ironed suit. He, of course, was mobbed by a crowd of photographers and onlookers waiting to get a glimpse at the star as he headed into the courtroom.

Labeouf's attorney and the district attorney requested an adjournment so they have more time to work towards a resolution/plea deal. Labeouf's new court date is set for Sept. 10 unless both sides can come to an agreement before that time.

Back in June, the Cabaret cast and audience members were witness to the detaining »

'Ninja Turtles' trailer features theme song by Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa

23 July 2014 12:32 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

If nothing else, let this mark the first time you’ve heard an anthropomorphic turtle shout “woo” between the words “Wu “and “Tang.”

A new trailer for Paramount’s upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles finds the four adolescent amphibians fighting crime to the tune of “Shell Shocked” by Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, and Ty Dolla $ign, which was released just yesterday.

Once you recover from being, well, shell-shocked by the very existence of both this song and the video it’s paired with, take a moment to reflect on the fact that combining rap and Tmnt has been done before. »

‘Tmnt’ 2014: Ninja Rap Theme Song ‘Shell Shocked’; New TV Spots

23 July 2014 9:54 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

For over two years, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot has been a contentious project – especially when it was first revealed that former Transformers-lead Megan Fox had been cast as beloved Turtle ally April O’Neil. In the months since, skeptics have reacted with equal outrage to a host of other revelations from the Turtles’ visual makeover (now with nostrils) to the addition of Johnny Knoxville (voicing Leonardo), as well as long-rumored changes to the heroes’ origin story, among others. As a result, frustration has routinely been directed toward producer Michael Bay (a man regularly blamed for “ruining childhoods” via his Transformers franchise) – while the film’s actual director, Jonathan Liebesman (Clash of the Titans) has mostly flown under vitriolic fan radar.

Much of the anger comes from a perceived failure on the part of filmmakers to deliver the type of Tmnt movie that longtime fans want – as ...

‘Transformers: Age Of Extinction’ Nears $900 Million Worldwide

22 July 2014 11:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Despite the fact that Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age Of Extinction is (critically) the worst received film in the series, it is currently 2014′s highest grossing production and it doesn’t look like it will be slowing down any time soon.

So far each successive instalment in incredibly lucrative Transformers franchise has out-grossed its predecessor at the worldwide box office. This is a trend that seems set to continue with the fourth helping of Bayhem, as the film currently sits at $886.3 Million worldwide, which is more than both of the first two movies in the series! To put that in perspective, 2007′s Transformers grossed $709 Million, 2009′s Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen grossed $836 Million and 2011′s Transformers: Dark Of The Moon grossed $1.1 Billion. If the box office results for Optimus’ latest Decepticon-demolishing adventure continue to soar into the stratosphere, then it seems almost certain that Transformers: Age Of Extinction will become »
