While it has been known for quite some time that Michael Bay’s latest Autobot apocalyptic onscreen epic Transformers: The Last Knight will feature a mix of both returning cast members and fresh new faces, the latest cast acquisition implies that we could be in store for a proper reunion. Indeed, former franchise co-star Tyrese Gibson has officially announced that he’s returning for this latest film.
The news came straight from Gibson himself via his Instagram regarding the “rumor” of his return, which he happily addressed with a series of pictures of himself with director Michael Bay, confirming his return for The Last Knightl. The news that Gibson will take a break from his box-office smashing, sequel-strewn success as co-star of the Fast & Furious franchise to once »
Following in the footsteps of his longtime Transformers screen partner Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson revealed via a post on Instagram that he will be reprising his role as Sergeant Robert Epps in Transformers: The Last Knight.
In 2007’s Transformers, 2009’s Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and 2011’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Gibson and Duhamel played soldiers who constantly crossed paths with the protagonist, Sam Witwicky, and assisted in fighting the evil Decepticons.
Gibson, along with all of the human characters in the original live-action Transformers trilogy, took a break from the series with 2014’s Transformers: Age of Extinction, but director Michael Bay seems to have made it his goal to get at least part of the gang back together for the upcoming fifth installment. While it’s more unlikely that such actors as Shia Labeouf and John Turturro will return for The Last Knight, it’s also not completely outside the realm of possibility. »

Ever since production started on Transformers: The Last Knight late last month, we've already learned that a few of our favorite Autobots and Decepticons such as Megatron and Bumblebee will be back for this sequel. Today, director Michael Bay took a break from the production to introduce a brand new robot character, Squeeks. The director is seen in the first of two new photos alongside Squeeks and his new co-star Isabela Moner.
We're pretty sure Squeeks is an Autobot, with the director debuting two new photos on his official website MichaelBay.com. Squeeks is a 1960s/1970s Vespa scooter, and since we see what appears to be a junkyard in the back of this photo, it's possible that Isabela Moner's mystery character discovers Squeeks in this automotive graveyard. This image comes just a few days after the Decepticon cop car Barricade was unveiled.

Just a couple of days back, we had reported that the Azhar star Emraan Hashmi would soon be turning producer. Well now we hear that Emraan who has already commenced work on his debut production venture has roped in the Fast & Furious cinematographer Amir Mokri for his film. While there were reports that the acclaimed Iranian cinematographer, Amir Mokri who has worked on films like Fast & Furious, Transformers: Dark Of The Moon and Man Of Steel (2013), to name a few, was to join Tony D'Souza's Azhar, he dropped out citing date issues. However, considering that Emraan is setting up his production banner Emraan Hashmi Films in collaboration with Tony, the duo approached Mokri to come on board for their maiden venture. Though Emraan is in the process of finalizing two scripts, the actor is currently gearing up for his next release as an actor. As for the production venture »

It’s a well known fact at this stage that 20th Century Fox slashed Deadpool‘s budget before shooting was set to begin, a decision which led to a couple of major action sequences being scrapped and the disappearance of a few villains. With director Tim Miller forced to save money by any means possible, one eagle eyed fan has now brought to light that the film seems to have borrowed footage from a previous X-Men movie.
As you can see in the video above, the scene featuring the X-Jet taking off from Xavier’s School For Gifted Youngsters in Deadpool has been lifted directly from X-Men: The Last Stand, with only the design of the Blackbird changed slightly.
It’s hard to say exactly how much money this would have saved, but it’s not exactly going to ruin Deadpool on repeat viewings and is far from the first »

We can never get too much Indy, right?
Well, that’s a good thing because Disney just announced another Indiana Jones installment coming from both director Steven Spielberg and star Harrison Ford, who showed off his action-adventure muscle once again in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn said in a statement, “Indiana Jones is one of the greatest heroes in cinematic history, and we can’t wait to bring him back to the screen in 2019. It’s rare to have such a perfect combination of director, producers, actor, and role, and we couldn’t be more excited to embark on this adventure with Harrison and Steven.”
The first Indiana Jones romp, Raiders Of The Lost Ark, premiered in 1981 and the series collectively has brought in almost $1 billion in North America alone. (No wonder they want to get back on the horse!)

As it turns out, he is already on set and ready to shoot his scenes. The actor shared a set photo, which you can see below.
Jared Padalecki's Dean Forester is Rory's first love. But he's not the only old boyfriend who'll be thrown back into the mix. Other former exes set to return include Milo Ventimiglia as Jess and Matt Czuchry as Logan. But neither of these guys can hold a candle to Dean.

Exclusive: UK and Iceland among shoot destinations scouted by Paramount.
Shoot locations are being scouted in the UK for Paramount’s Transformers 5, the latest instalment in the studio’s blockbuster franchise that has collectively made $3.76bn at the box office.
The production is understood to be weighing up locations in the UK, Iceland and other international territories alongside a Us shoot.
The previous two films, Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) and Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011), shot largely in the Us. But a franchise first UK shoot could bring with it significant benefits in the shape of the UK tax credit should the production hit the minimum spend threshold.
Iceland also offers an enticing incentive for inward investment productions.
Some UK studio work on the film is a possibility, but the production is not yet booked into one of the major facilities, according to sources.

There’s more to Hollywood movies than what you think you see and hear on screen. “The average moviegoer might assume that all of the sound they hear in a theater when they go to a movie was recorded on set, and that’s absolutely not the case,” supervising sound editor Erik Aadahl told TheWrap for “Eyes & Ears on the Oscars,” a new video in partnership with Dolby. Aadahl, an Oscar nominee for “Argo” and “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” was one of several below-the-line stars who shared his insights and experience. Also Read: 'Mad Max,' 'Star Wars, »

Over the weekend, Vin Diesel shared the first promotional image for Fast & Furious 8, which is set to see director F. Gary Gray (The Italian Job, Straight Outta Compton) picking up the baton from Fast & Furious 7 helmer James Wan for what’s said to be the first instalment of “one last trilogy to end the saga”.
Speaking to Collider to promote the home-entertainment release of Straight Outta Compton, Gray has been discussing his plans for the eighth instalment of the action series, stating that he plans “to bring something different to the franchise while still satisfying what the fans want.”
“[Vin and I] talked about all of the Fast movies up to this point, and where could we go,” states Gray. “I think he was really happy with the vision I have for the franchise and I was really happy about where he sees not only his character going but the franchise itself, »

Fast & Furious franchise star Vin Diesel has unveiled the first official Fast 8 photo on his Instagram account. Interestingly enough, the picture not only is a nice tease for fans anxiously awaiting the eight installment, but it also confirms that the film will primarily be shooting in New York City, considering that the image shows many of the city’s skyscrapers, including the Empire State Building. The tagline “New Roads Ahead” goes to show that the series will be heading in a different direction with its next entry. See it for yourself here…
On top of NYC, reports also suggest that the film will do some shooting in Cuba.

His reason for returning to the series this time though is a bit frustrating, because it has nothing to do with liking Michael Bay or not as a filmmaker. Instead, it highlights the ongoing issue Hollywood has with tentpole blockbusters and sequels.
In an interview with Collider, Bay once again says this Transformers will be his last, but when called out on his backpedaling he said “Yeah, I know, right? But it’s like, that’s all they want to do is franchises. That’s all they want to do. I had to beg to get to make [13 Hours]”

The next Transformers movie, Transformers 5, might just be a pivotal one in the future of the film series. After all, it's little secret that Paramount is working on a Transformers cinematic universe, and presumably Transformers 5 will be the gateway to that.
After he'd made the third Transformers film, Dark Of The Moon, director Michael Bay said that he wouldn't be back for the fourth. But he was. And after he'd made the fourth movie, Age Of Extinction, Michael Bay said he wouldn't be back for the fifth.
You can guess where this is going, right?
"Transformers, I still have a great time", Bay said. »
