In Defence Of... Back to the Future Part III, one of the best trilogy ends ever

17 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

In the run-up to Back to the Future's 30th anniversary on July 3, Digital Spy presents a week of special features celebrating the time-travel classic.

If Back to the Future, with its 30th anniversary this week and much Secret Cinema loving of late, has become one of the most celebrated '80s movies, it's fair to say, ahem, time hasn't been as kind to its second sequel, released at the turn of the '90s.

Back to the Future Part III, wisdom suggests, is where Marty and Doc limped out of their time travels. Filmed at the same time as Back to the Future Part II, and released the following year after a big cinema teaser trailer at the end of the sequel, it's often seen as a cash-in - the original "let's make every franchise a trilogy" misstep.

Just look at those collective review scores: a shabby 55 compared to the first's 86 on Metacritic. »

Box Office: ‘Terminator Genisys,’ ‘Magic Mike XXL’ Face Off Over Independence Day

29 June 2015 2:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger is hoping to reinvigorate his faltering film career this holiday weekend by breaking out a certain cyborg’s trademark sunglasses and leather jacket.

After all, nostalgia can be a powerful weapon — a force potent enough to erase memories of “Escape Plan,” “Sabotage” and a litany of recent Ahnold box office duds.

Paramount’s “Terminator: Genisys,” which finds Schwarzenegger back in his star-making role, is on track to debut to between $50 million to $55 million over its first five days of release and should pull in $30 million to $35 million over the July 4th weekend. The fifth film in the Terminator series debuts Wednesday across 3,700 locations. It looks at ongoing fallout from Skynet’s ill-conceived forays into artificial intelligence, following human resistance leader John Connor (Jason Clarke) on another time-bending adventure. Reviews have been lukewarm, with critics handing the film a 38% rotten ranking on Rotten Tomatoes.

‘Terminator Genisys’ & ‘Magic Mike Xxl’ Enter July 4th Frame Too Close To Call

29 June 2015 2:13 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Remember those Independence Day weekends at the box office when records were set? Well, this weekend isn’t going to be one of them. At the high end of the July 4 holiday, you have former titans such as Paramount’s Transformers: Dark Of The Moon raking in $180.7M over six days in 2011 or Sony’s Spider-Man 2 posting a six-day bow of $180.1M in 2004. However, label this weekend as another case of too-close-to-call. It couldn’t be worse with Independence Day falling on a… »

Watch Shia Labeouf take a swipe at Transformers during freestyle rap

29 June 2015 7:23 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Shia Labeouf's rapping skills were put to the test when he freestyled in front of a small crowd.

A video of the actor's performance - shot by a bystander named Corey James - surfaced online on Sunday (June 28).

Labeouf tripped over his words here and there, but seemed to generally impress the crowd with his abilities.

During the rap, he described himself as "the best in the West", and also took a swipe at the Transformers franchise.

When someone mentioned Autobot scout Bumblebee, he rapped: "Nah, none of that. Transformers is the dummy rap and I'm so past that. I want some new s**t."

Labeouf starred in three Transformers films between 2007 and 2011, making his final appearance in Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

Last week, Labeouf was hospitalised with minimal head and hand injuries after a stunt on the set of American Honey went wrong. »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.

“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”

“We are grateful to our incredible community of supporters who have helped make this museum a reality,” said Dawn Hudson, the Academy’s CEO. “Building this museum has been an Academy »

Transformers 5: What We Know

26 June 2015 1:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Transformers: Age of Extinction was supposed to right the wrongs of the blockbuster franchise, with Michael Bay promising something different. He claimed it would be a better movie. That didn't quite turn out as planned. While Transformers 4 has it's moments, it is the lowest earning movie in the series, and the lowest rated as well. People hated this latest installment, even though it was meant to be a reboot with all new characters, a new setting, and a smaller, more intimate band of Autobots. Heck, it even introduced the Dinobots. But that did little to shake fans out of their explosion-induced coma. These monstrous metal beasts came in too late in a movie that was already over stuffed with insanity. So, with Transformers 5, Paramount is going to try once again to make something that is awesome, amazing, and everything we'd want in a Transformers movie. They've even set »

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

26 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning.  For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing.  Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women.  And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity

26 June 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.

Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.

Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »

Mark Wahlberg thinks Michael Bay will direct Transformers 5

13 June 2015 6:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the release of Transformers: Age of Extinction, it was reported that Michael Bay had decided to pass on the reins to the Transformers franchise to another filmmaker.

However, with the Transformers writers room in full swing, it seems Bay may have had a change of heart, as Mark Wahlberg has revealed to Collider that he expects to reunite with his Pain & Gain and Age of Extinction helmer for the fifth movie.

“I don’t [know the status of Transformers 5],” states Wahlberg. “Just that Akiva Goldsman and those guys are starting to write and break stories, and stuff like that. But Michael Bay is in Malta shooting Benghazi, and I’m in New Orleans shooting Deepwater. We’ll get together when he gets back. Yes [I think he’ll direct it].”

Bay is still attached to Transformers 5 as executive producer, but if he does decide to direct, it wouldn’t be the first time that he’d changed his mind, »

4 June 2015 9:42 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Michael Bay's currently hard-at-work on his passion project, the Benghazi drama 13 Hours, and while it would seem he'd jump onto Transformers 5 or possibly even Bad Boys III afterwards, it looks as though he'll spend his time otherwise.

'Point Break' Remake Highlights a Problem with Today's Blockbuster Films & No, It's Not the Story

29 May 2015 12:08 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The problem with the new Point Break remake has nothing to do with your inability to grow-up. It's doing nothing to your childhood unless you still identify with a man and his mullet. Kathryn Bigelow's 1991 original is still a great film for those of us that saw it when it was released and the fact it was remade into The Fast and The Furious ten years later and is now being remade just shy of 25 years after its original release simply means they're looking to bring a similar story to a new kind of audience, and I'm actually interested in the story they are aiming to tell. As was evident in the trailer and described in the film's plot synopsis, the gang of criminal rogues led by a man named Bodhi (Edgar Ramirez) are killing whoever may be in their way toward "liberating" the world's riches, sending the global economy into a tailspin. »

Mad Max: Fury Road's Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Strips Off In Racy New Photoshoot

27 May 2015 6:23 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Mad Max: Fury Road is one of the greatest action movies of all-time, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (in only her second big screen appearance since Transformers: Dark of the Moon) definitely impressed. What's next for her? That remains to be seen, but it will be interesting to see if the model/actress ends up taking a crack at the comic book movie genre one of these days. Thanks to Movie Hotties, we have a smoking hot new photoshoot which reveals even more than all of those gratuitous ass shots in the third Transformers! It's definitely on the Nsfw side, and racier pictures can be found by clicking on the link below. Which Cbm role do you think she's right for? »

Top 20 Most Profitable Movies That Are Terrible

25 May 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Movies that make money don’t always do so because they’re good. Here’s our list of underwhelming movies that happened to overwhelm the box office.

While the box office is a good, general representation of the popularity of a film, it is not necessarily an indicator of quality. Yes, it is true that most of the highest grossing movies have also received favorable reviews from critics and audiences alike, that’s often what makes them a hit, but there are some exceptions. This is a list of those exceptions. This is a list of those movies that did spectacularly well at the box office, but ended up being an inferior product.

So why would so many people want to see a terrible film? Why would they waste their hard-earned money and fleeting free time? The answer is actually pretty simple. Many of these films share a lot of common traits. »

Mad Max: Fury Road gets the Mario Kart treatment

For those of you who haven’t had the chance to go and watch Tom Hardy wreak havoc in the recent post-apocalyptic epic Mad Max: Fury Road, then you can enjoy a taste of what’s to come in this fan-made trailer. Oh, and to make things a tad more interesting, there is a whole host of Mario Kart references thrown in for good measure.

Up and coming filmmaker Kris Sundberg is responsible for this little gem. The spoof includes a variety of Mario themed elements, including Rainbow Road, bananas, mystery crates and last but far from least, a wide array of Mario and Wario sound effects. Check it out below!

George Miller wanted Heath Ledger for Mad Max: Fury Road, reveals title of next sequel

19 May 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Mad Max franchise returned to the big screen after a thirty year absence this past weekend with the release of Mad Max: Fury Road, marking the end of a fifteen year plus journey for director George Miller, who originally started developing the film back in the late 90s.

Having originally planned to shoot the film with Mel Gibson in 2003 before security concerns over its shoot in Namibia put the breaks on the project, Miller started giving consideration to recasting his franchise lead in 2006, and he’s revealed to The Daily Beast (via The Playlist) that he was actively pursuing the late Heath Ledger for the role.
