Well, X-Men: Days of Future Past’s stay as the biggest earner of the year didn’t last long, with Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction shrugging aside almost universal negative reviews to become the highest-grossing movie of 2014 so far, with a whopping $752 million worldwide just three weekends after its release. The fourth instalment in the Hasbro franchise looks set to become the first (and only?) release of the year to crack a billion, although The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies may have something to say about that.
Transformers: Age of Extinction is out now, with Bay directing a cast that includes Mark Wahlberg (Pain & Gain), Jack Reynor (What Richard Did), Nicola Peltz (Bates Motel), Stanley Tucci (Captain America: The First Avenger), Li Bingbing (Resident Evil: Retribution), Sophia Myles (Underworld), Victoria Summer (Saving Mr. Banks), Titus Welliver (Lost) and T.J.

"The world has changed . . . . and none of us can go back. All we can do is our best, and sometimes, the best that we can do . . . . is to start over." - Margaret 'Peggy' Carter When directing duo Joe and Anthony Russo were selected to helm the second installment in the Captain America film franchise, there was much apprehension from fans around the world. Many loved the take that Joe Johnston had provided in Captain America: The First Avenger, and while I was supportive of them from the time they got the job, the filmography of the Russo Bros. left the divided feelings of the fanbase very understandable. Despite being mostly known for comedic work, the team was shilled by Marvel Studios main producer Kevin Feige, who was unwaveringly confident that they could deliver a movie that the fanbase deserved. Luckily for us, Captain America: The »

The box office juggernaut that is Transformers: Age of Extinction just keeps on rolling. One day after becoming China’s highest-grossing movie ever, the Michael Bay-directed sequel has now passed the $600 million mark worldwide, with a domestic haul of $185 million and an international take of $421.2 million giving the film a whopping $606.5 million already. It’s surely only a matter of time before Age of Extinction overtakes Fox’s X-Men: Days of Future Past to become the biggest earner of the year so far, and at this stage it looks all but assured that it will go on to become the first billion dollar release of 2014.
Transformers: Age of Extinction is out now, with Bay directing a cast that includes Mark Wahlberg (Pain & Gain), Jack Reynor (What Richard Did), Nicola Peltz (Bates Motel), Stanley Tucci (Captain America: The First Avenger), Li Bingbing (Resident Evil: Retribution), Sophia Myles (Underworld), Victoria Summer »

If you were hoping that Disney would showcase Star Wars: Episode VII at the San Diego Comic-Con International later this month then I’m afraid you’re out of luck, as Lucasfilm has revealed that J.J.

However, there’s still plenty for Star Wars fans to sink their teeth into, with the official Star Wars website announcing the following schedule, as well as unveiling a brand new poster for the upcoming animated series Star Wars Rebels…

With Comic-Con 2014 just a few weeks away, many fans thought San Diego would be the first place footage or full-costumed cast photos from Star Wars: Episode VII would debut, even though director J.J. Abrams is currently in the midst production. Sadly, today, Disney and LucasFilm confirmed their Comic-Con plans, which included a brief statement confirming that Star Wars: Episode VII will not be featured in any way at the con.
"With Star Wars: Episode VII creators deep in production in anticipation of the film's December 18, 2015, release, Lucasfilm will not be featuring the movie at Sdcc."
We can always hope for the element of surprise, which hasn't served fans well in the past. No previous Con or event has served to provide a first look at Star Wars: Episode VII just yet.
However, LucasFilm and Disney did reveal several other Comic-Con events for Star Wars fans to partake in during the annual San Diego convention, »
"It's not a superhero movie - it's a space opera."
Not the first words you expect to hear from the leading man on the set of Marvel Studios' latest offering. But as Digital Spy learned when we visited the set last summer, there are a lot of things that set Guardians of the Galaxy apart from the comic book movie herd.
While much of the Marvel cinematic universe's Phase Two has tended more towards an ensemble tone following the success of The Avengers - Black Widow and Nick Fury shouldered much of the third act without Cap in Captain America: The Winter Soldier - Guardians is the first official "team effort" since Joss Whedon's spectacularly successful 2012 blockbuster. So, no pressure.
Then there's the fact that The Avengers was based around familiar characters already beloved in their current incarnations. While Marvel have introduced the odd new hero into the mix lately, »
Prior to the production of Transformers: Age of Extinction, there was a deal in place between Paramount and motor vehicle company Polaris for them to create Transformers based off their machines. These would have included ATVs, snowmobiles etc. For whatever reason, the deal didn’t go through and the characters were scrapped.
Michael Hirtz (via Cbm) has now shared some of his concepts for what those Transformers would have looked like. They also write, “he informs us that these robots would’ve been relatively small as compared to the normal-sized Transformers. Somewhere around 8-10ft max, based on the types of vehicles Polaris manufactures. Hritz’s designs also do a great job of incorporating the look of Polaris’ vehicles by ‘exposing shocks and linkages, using roll-cages and vehicle structure, aggressive/colorful forms floating over blacked-out mechanical parts.’”

While it’s rare that a big name superhero is killed off on the big screen (even in the comics, it’s only ever a matter of months or a brief few years before the likes of Captain America or Thor return), many of our favourite superhero movies do sometimes take the gamble of killing off a lead character. More often than not it’ll be the villain, but the good guys don’t always make it out in one piece either.
Unfortunately, the movies don’t always get these pivotal moments right though! Below, you’ll find just ten of the worst examples of an important death scene in a superhero movie. And, obviously, Spoilers are here.

It’s been top of the Us box office for two weeks and it looks to be taking the crown from Mrs. Brown’s Boys D’Movie when it’s officially released here in the UK this Friday, but it looks like Transformers: Age of Extinction has broken new ground in China already, knocking Avatar from its box office record spot.
The film has grossed RMB740 million ($119.8 million) in its opening week to combine with the RMB628 million ($101.7 million) it took in its opening weekend. That gives Transformers: Age of Extinction a 10-day total of RMB1.37 billion ($221.9 million).
Avatar‘s has held the box office record since its release in 2009. The press release given to Flickering Myth also states that the Chinese currency is appreciated more, which means it has made more dollars per Rmb than James Cameron’s movie.
Paramount are yet to confirm these figures.
The movie has also way-surpassed its predecessor, »

The Flickering Myth Podcast is more than meets the eye….
Perhaps the most critic proof franchise in the history of cinema is back with a bang as Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction has landed! The movie has made nearly $600 million worldwide in around 10 days which is a staggering achievement, but what did our writers think?
In what is perhaps our most hotly-debated podcast in recent memory, Flickering Myth co-editor Luke Owen is joined by staff writers Amon Warmann, Anthony Stokes, Rohan Morbey and Scott Davis to discuss Transformers: Age of Extinction – what was good, what was bad, laughing at product placement and the “Bayhem” and asking why there was a joke about statutory rape in a movie made to sell toys for children.
Warning – this podcast contains strong language, strong opinions and some spoilers.

OutKast’s André Benjamin stars as Jimi Hendrix in this revealing biopic from Academy Award-winning writer-director John Ridley (“12 Years A Slave”). Covering a year in Hendrix’s life from 1966-67 as an unknown backup guitarist playing New York’s Cheetah Club to making his mark in London’s music scene up until his Monterey Pop triumph, the film presents an intimate portrait of the sensitive young musician on the verge of becoming a rock legend.
