Akiva Goldman signs on to drive future 'Transformers' movies writer's room

27 March 2015 3:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Some days you're a step ahead, some days you're a step behind. I've been chasing this Akiva Goldsman/"Transformers" story for a few weeks, but couldn't second-source it. Now Deadline's reporting that the story is in fact happening. One of the reasons I was extra-careful was because it is the sort of story that sounds like someone making a joke about the way the industry works right now. "Akiva Goldsman has been hired to supervise the development of three back-to-back 'Transformers' sequels for Michael Bay" is what I heard first, and my response was, "Shut up and stop making horrible jokes." The thing is, this is the near-future of how they'll be handling these giant franchise films. You want to know the real truth of why the Russos are rapidly becoming Marvel's favorite filmmakers? Because they are trained to work in the TV model already, which is what blockbuster filmmaking is becoming. »

'Transformers' Multi-Part Sequel & Spinoff Movies Planned

27 March 2015 1:38 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Paramount Pictures is in negotiations with writer-director-producer Akiva Goldsman to help develop new Transformers movies alongside franchise director Michael Bay. Deadline reports that Paramount's approach is similar to what director James Cameron did with his Avatar sequels, forming a "writers room" of sorts that will come up with ideas to develop a new multi-part sequel and spinoff movies. Akiva Goldsman isn't expected to write any of these movies himself, but he will find new writers to craft the scripts based on his ideas for the franchise.

The site also reports that Michael Bay would like to have Transformers 5 ready to start production once he wraps on his Benghazi thriller 13 Hours. It has long been believed that last year's Transformers: Age of Extinction, which was the only movie last year to cross $1 billion worldwide, was the last Transformers he planned on directing, but it seems he'll be on board to helm Transformers 5 as well. »

Extended 'Terminator: Genisys' UK TV Spot Tries to Save the World

27 March 2015 10:04 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

"We're here to stop the end of the world." If you've been waiting to see some more footage from Terminator: Genisys, our friends across the pond have you covered. A new extended TV spot from the United Kingdom has just surfaced with a whole bunch of new footage from the film, including our first look at J.K. Simmons in the film (sadly the scene in question doesn't look very good), and a glimpse at what appears to be a new Terminator model (perhaps that's who Matt Smith will be playing in the film). The Terminator films have never been deadly serious, but this one just feels far too campy and silly for my taste. Here's the new extended UK TV spot for Terminator: Genisys from Paramount UK: You can still watch the first full trailer for Terminator: Genisys right here.

Interview: Wim Wenders Talks ‘The Salt Of The Earth, The Possible Death Of 3D, Films Coming To Criterion & More

27 March 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

German filmmaker Wim Wenders has really done it all. From narrative to documentaries, including 3D arthouse dramas (the upcoming “Every Thing Will Be Fine”), 3D documentaries (“Pina”), music videos (U2, Talking Heads), live concert films, and almost every kind of movie imaginable in between — Wenders’ work has been restlessly eclectic. The filmmaker has been an early adopter of new technology throughout his career, shooting on video in the mid ‘90s (“Until the End of the World”), and his embrace of 3D technology began even earlier than is suggested on paper (he began shooting “Pina” even before James Cameron’s “Avatar” was released in theaters). He’s also received a ton of accolades over the years, winning the Palme d’Or in 1984 at Cannes (“Paris, Texas”), Best Director at Cannes in 1987 (“Wings Of Desire”) and he’s been nominated for three Academy Awards for the documentaries “Buena Vista Social Club,” the »

Arnold Gets Blown Away on 'Terminator: Genisys' Motion Poster

25 March 2015 10:26 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

We already know that Arnold Schwarzenegger will be back for more sequels after Terminator: Genisys, though that doesn't mean necessarily mean the aged iteration of the T-800 we see in this new trilogy reboot won't get destroyed (we doubt he will though). But he'll still probably suffer some damage, and a new motion poster from across the pond illustrates that in a cool way as the aged Schwarzenegger skin that covers the robotic exoskeleton of the Terminators is blown away to reveal the metallic cyborg we all know. It's a pretty cool little poster, but after seeing the full trailer, I'm still concerned about this one. Look! Here's the new motion poster for Terminator: Genisys from Paramount Pictures UK: You can still watch the first full trailer for Terminator: Genisys right here.

Outrage Watch: Zoe Saldana and Ellen DeGeneres disagree on this Dolce and Gabbana boycott

23 March 2015 2:23 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to the March 19, 2015 edition of Outrage Watch, HitFix's (almost) daily rundown of all the things folks are peeved about in entertainment. Today's top story: Ellen DeGeneres is on board with Elton John's Dolce and Gabbana boycott while Zoe Saldana...isn't, apparently. "No! Not at all," she told E! News on the GLAAD Awards red carpet when asked if she would be boycotting the designers after the two came out against gay adoption and in vitro fertilization in an interview with Italian magazine Panorama. "That would be the stupidest thing if it affected my fashion choice...People are allowed to their own opinion, however, I wouldn't have chosen to be so public about something that's such a personal thing." The "Avatar" actress added later: "Obviously it caused some sensitivity, but then again if you continue to follow the news, you see they all kinda hugged it out, so why »

Take Two: 'FernGully' remains a delightful time capsule every 90s kid should revisit

19 March 2015 7:11 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are some movies from childhood that you watch over and over again. Then there are those films you see once and put away into the nostalgic recesses of your mind. Over time, those movies are stripped down and coalesce into a rose-colored memory. For me “FernGully” falls into the later category. If anyone asked, I’d declare my undying love for that animated film. Yet if pressed, I could barely sketch out the plot. Here’s what I do remember. I saw “FernGully” in theaters with my friends and it was the most romantic movie our nine-year-old eyes had ever seen. To my young self, “Fern Gully” was less a story about the dangers of pollution than a modern day “Romeo and Juliet” between a fairy and a human, only without the double suicide. Like any good love story, it involved a headstrong teenage daughter. In this case, the »

Harrison Ford-Narrated Aviation Movie to Debut in April

19 March 2015 1:39 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

National Geographic Studios will release in April the Harrison Ford-narrated, large-screen film “Living in the Age of Airplanes,” about the history of aviation, the studio announced Thursday.

Directed by Brian J. Terwilliger (“One Six Right”), the film shot in 18 countries. The pic features an original score by James Horner (“Avatar”) and cinematography by Andrew Waruszewski.

“With this film, we want to reignite people’s wonder for one of the most extraordinary aspects of the modern world,” Terwilliger said in a release.

Ford and his love of airplanes have been in the news recently: a small plane crash landed him in the hospital earlier this month. Ford is an experienced pilot, licensed to fly helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft.

“Living in the Age of Airplanes” will bow in Imax, giant screen, dome screen and digital cinema formats on April 10.

Weird Crush Wednesday: Michelle Rodriguez leaves a mark as Letty in 'Furious 7'

18 March 2015 2:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Our weekly column in which writers share their off-beat, wacky and unexpected current obsessions. Michelle Rodriguez is a major puzzle piece in the "Fast and Furious" franchise, and when her character "died," it caused some major reactions in the films. When it was revealed that she wasn't dead, it set up an entire movie that essentially served as the "Search For Spock" of this series. In "Furious 7," Letty is still struggling because she can't remember her life with Dom (Vin Diesel), and she can't handle how intensely he loves her because she doesn't remember any of what went on between them. It's given both Rodriguez and Diesel plenty to do in the last two films. What cracks me up is the way certain things work in this series, then get added to the overall series as recurring ideas. In "Fast and Furious 6," Letty had to face off against Riley »

'The Leviathan' Trailer Introduces a Stunning Sci-Fi World

17 March 2015 8:40 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Proof-of-concept trailers are nothing new. They've helped many projects become reality, including the highly anticipated Deadpool. Oscar-nominated drama Whiplash secured financing due to its proof-of-concept video, and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia creator Rob McElhenney just sold his proof-of-concept Figment to Legendary Pictures in a significant deal. Academy Award-nominee Ruairi Robinson (Fifty Percent Grey, The Last Days on Mars) hopes to be as lucky as he introduces the world to his sci-fi thrill-ride The Leviathan.

The The Leviathan teaser trailer is a three-minute adrenaline-fueled ride through the clouds. It takes its cues from the literary classics Moby Dick and Dune. The story takes place in the early 22nd century. Mankind has colonized many worlds. 'Faster-than-light' travel was made possible by harvesting exotic matter from the eggs of the largest species mankind has ever seen. Those that take part in the hunt for these creatures are mostly involuntary labor.

Sigourney Weaver has offered new hints about the plot of director Neill Blomkamp's Alien 5.

The duo were confirmed for the sequel in February, just weeks after Blomkamp had fuelled interest in the project by posting production art on Instagram.

Weaver gave a coy answer when quizzed on the plot for the next Alien movie during an interview on SiriusXM's Town Hall Radio.

"Let's just put it this way, we've found the host and it's been embedded," she hinted, before adding: "It's gestated."

Among the production art posted by Blomkamp was an image that appeared to be a hybrid of a Xenomorph alien and Weaver's character Ripley.

James Cameron Sued For Possibly Stealing Avatar

13 March 2015 10:25 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

James Cameron.s Avatar reinvigorated the 3D medium, starting a wave of momentum that.s still in effect over 5 years later. It also still holds firm as the all-time domestic box-office "King of the World," at $760 million domestically, and a whopping $2.788 Billion globally, with sequels in the works. Thus, like someone who.s won the lottery, James Cameron probably still gets a lot of calls from potential moochers. However, one "call" in particular from a Chechen author, has come in the form of a lawsuit accusing the director/writer of plagiarism. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a Chechen author named Ruslan Zakriyev is attempting to throw the book at James Cameron, claiming that Avatar has plagiarized a novel that he published online back in 2002 called Sekretnoye Oruzhiye ("Secret Weapon.") Zakriyev claims that some scenes in Avatar were identical to scenes in his own novel. As the apparently aggrieved Chechen stated »
