Over the weekend, an early draft of a script for Transformers 3 (scheduled to be released in the summer of 2012) was “leaked: online. Is it real? Is it a fake? I have no idea!
But if it is a ruse, the jokesters certainly went out of their way. I don’t know why anyone would take the time to write a fake 126-page script, slap Ehren Kruger’s name on it, and throw it online; so I’d guess that it’s an early draft (dated November 24th); meaning what ends up on screen in 18 months may not at all look like what’s on the pages of this version. But, again, I don’t know!
I read a few pages here and there, and I can’t tell much – I’m no Transformers aficionado.
Judge for yourself… download it Here. If it is real, I’d expect that it won’t last long! »
The future of the Transformers franchise was initially up in the air following the release of the second movie, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, despite a successful showing at the box office. Screenwriters Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman declined to return for a third movie, and director Michael Bay said that he needed some time off from Transformers.
Plans for the franchise quickly got back on track, however. Bay changed his mind about making a "small movie" between the Transformers and even announced the return of Megan Fox, despite the very public feud between the two of them. And, while Orci and Kurtzman are out, Orci said that the script for the third movie is in the capable hands of Ehren Kruger, who assisted the duo with the script for the second movie.
Just when things seem to be humming along, the possibility of a studio leak has surfaced. The »

As a director, Clint Eastwood has the cool self-assurance that he possessed as an actor. It’s the kind of confidence that allows critics and fans to overlook the rockier portion of his directorial career, and pretend he’s always cut an elegant picture during awards season. A weighty film like Invictus is now part of the Eastwood brand as much as pulpy Westerns ever were, and he handles the material fearlessly. But his composed approach is both a strength and a weakness when it comes to the story of Nelson Mandela, and the 1995 Rugby World Cup.
The story of Invictus is a true one, strong and inspirational. Eastwood plunges immediately into 1990’s turbulent South Africa. The country overcame internal prejudice, freed Nelson Mandela and elected him, but viewed “The Rainbow Nation” with hatred and skepticism. The hostility between both races is thick and palpable, racist comments are the stuff of casual conversation, »

Many dubbed Simon Cowell mean for his blunt comments on "American Idol", but mean won't be the words Megan Fox will use to describe the talent judge. In fact, the "Jennifer's Body" leading actress has admitted her crush on the 50-year-old, reports recently came out on the matter.
Of her infatuation, the on-and-off girlfriend of Brian Austin Green, in her own words, said, "Simon is hot." On what Cowell's features that transfix her interest on him, she pointed out on his British "power". The 23-year-old explained simply, "It's the whole mean, powerful, British gent kind of thing."
Megan Fox broke out into the movie industry through her role as Mikaela Banes in "Transformers". She has reprised the role in "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" and has been set to return in "Transformers 3". She will next be seen portraying a prostitute named Leila in "Jonah Hex".

According to Variety, DreamWorks has greenlit the robot boxing movie Real Steel with Aussie A-lister and Wolverine actor, Hugh Jackman, confirmed to star. We reported on Jackman’s possible involvement with Real Steel back in October, but this is the first official confirmation of his role. The sci-fi film will feature Jackman as a retired boxer who reconnects with his estranged son after he becomes a promoter for a robot boxing league. The film is based on a short story by sci-fi author Richard Matheson, and has already seen a small screen adaptation via a 1963 Twilight Zone episode.
Besides Jackman’s casting, there were a number of interesting tidbits in the Variety article. For instance, Real Steel will be DreamWorks’ first feature film since the company was refinanced by Hollywood heavyweights Steven Spielberg and Stacey Snider. Because it will be the first post-Paramount DreamWorks production, there is sure to be »

When your pitch for a film is “Rocky meets robots,” you should stop and reconsider things. There’s no way that a film with that undercurrent should get off the ground. That is, unless you have Hugh Jackman and Steven Spielberg on your side. With those names in your toolbelt, you could probably raise the dead.
Spielberg and Stacey Snider will be producing Real Steel under their Dreamworks label, for Hugh Jackman to star. Hack director Shawn Levy will direct the film under an $80 million budget. When you can direct The Pink Panther and still have this sort of moolah stuffed in your pocket, I weep for the world.
According to Variety,
“[Real Steel] centers on a fighter who has to reinvent himself when human boxers are replaced by robots. Jackman will play a struggling Robot Boxing promoter who finds a discarded robot that always seems to win. He also discovers he has a 11-year-old son, »

Throughout the summer, leading up to and following the release of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, there was a ton of controversy and news reports following Megan Fox and what she had to say about the robot movies and their helmsman, Bay.
Some thought this might prevent or limit her role in Transformers 3 and that Michael Bay would act out of revenge and kill off her character. Of course, this was all unjustified and simply over-exaggerated out of the hype surrounding the film’s success this summer.
In July for instance, Fox said that working for Bay doesn’t involve acting and that he puts them through a boot camp-like experience just because it amuses him. In reply, Bay tossed her comments aside emphasizing that »

After some previous buzz involving the possibility of Michael Bay killing off Megan Fox’s character in Transformers 3, it appears that the very opposite is true. Despite the friction between Bay and Fox, not only will she live in the next movie, she will have a “great part”. The feud between the two arose after Fox called her director a “socially retarded Hitler”. Rumors began that Bay was planning on cutting her out of the next movie, with her character being killed being considered. Apparently, there are no hard feelings between the two. “I love her,” the director said at a Victoria’s Secret show (he directs the commercials). “It’s just that, she’s young. Everyone’s got to give her a break, she [is] only… 23? It’s just hard. I’ve traveled around the world with her and she’s just like this world symbol now, you know? »

After some previous buzz involving the possibility of Michael Bay killing off Megan Fox’s character in Transformers 3, it appears that the very opposite is true. Despite the friction between Bay and Fox, not only will she live in the next movie, she will have a “great part”. I’m sure most guys would jump at this news, but not me. No, I’m not saying Megan Fox isn’t attractive – but I am saying that she is an awful actress. I’m sure almost everyone knows that, but why is it that we keep giving her roles in movies just because of her looks? Isn’t that what models are for? I have a feeling that this will all be over soon for Fox, because as she gets older and fades into the regular flow of celebrities, her fame will drop dramatically. Until then, however, you can catch »

Along with Foxy Fox, series star Shia Labeouf is expected to return.

Yes, I know you're trying to forget about Transformers 2, and this isn't helping. If you followed the big back-n-forth between Michael Bay and Megan Fox earlier this year, you might've been left wondering if she would actually return, considering it seemed the two were not on good terms. However, Bay talked to USA Today at the recent Victoria's Secret show (he directed some of their commercials) and he's not mad at her after all. "I love her," Bay said. "It's just, she's young. Everyone's got to give her a break, she's only... 23? It's just hard. I've traveled around the world with her and she's just like this world symbol now, ya know?" Uh, right, we know, but thanks for clarifying. But that's not all. For better or worse, he also confirms she's set to return in Transformers 3, which he's already been working on since its due out in »

Under The Dome, the newest novel from Stephen King (who wrote about 50,000 books including those in The Dark Tower series) will be adapted for TV by the producer of Schindler’s List, Amistad and Transformers (actually, Spielberg was the executive producer of that last one). Collider clued us in.
The novel, released all of 10 days ago, follows the events in a sleepy Maine town after a mysterious dome entraps all of the inhabitants. For a hint at what might happen in the story, a previous piece King wrote with the same premise was titled The Cannibals. The official Stephen King Website gives this synopsis of Under The Dome:
“On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester’s Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, »

Despite their on-again, off-again routine of media spats, Michael Bay still has a thing for actress Megan Fox. Which means that her Transformers character Mikaela Banes will be surviving on into the next film, Transformers 3. While he was chillin' at the Victoria's Secret Show this week in New York, Bay was wrestled to the ground by USA Today reporter Andrea Mandell and forced to make a comment on Fox, who has been in the news lately due to some oddly acrobatic underwear photos she took for The New York Times (one of which can be seen above). On Fox, Bay said "I love her." Then followed up with an explanation of her role in the next Transformers film. “She’s got a great part in Transformers 3” he promised. When asked if he would kill her off: “No, no, no. She gets enough of that already”. When probed about the little scuffle that he and Fox »

Michael Bay has been hanging around at the launch of a Victoria's Secret Show, with the excuse that he directs their commercials, and discussing his supposed nemesis in lipgloss, Megan Fox. And what does he have to say about her? I love her. Er... okay, Mike. He did also discuss the role he's creating for her in the third Transformers film. "She’s got a great part in Transformers 3" he promised. So he's not going to kill her off? "No, no, no. She gets enough of that already”. Okay... whatever that means. USA Today had Andrea Mandell on the scene, who got Bay to discuss the crazy hurtful things that Fox has said about him. Here's their version of what he said: She called me [after the Hitler comment] and goes, ‘It’s all bullshit, Mike.’ The press, they just like to prey, and stalk, and pounce and find a good little juicy thing. »

Despite the controversial comments that Megan Fox has made about her Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen director Michael Bay, it seems the actress is set to reprise her role in the next film. USA Today recently spoke with Bay who talked about Fox's role in Transformers 3, and confirmed he won't be killing off her character.
"She's got a great part in Transformers 3," and he said he's currently working on the script. So Bay's not planning on getting revenge by, say, killing her off? "No, no. no," he said, dismissing it. "She gets enough of that already."

You Transformers fans know what I’m talking about when you see the name “Unicron.”
That’s right. If you thought Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen was a massive convoluted mess of nonsense and wasted… well, everything, coated in a big pile of explosions and sometimes-awkward visuals, then you’ve seen nothing yet. How can you introduce and misuse even bigger characters for Transformers 3 after what happened with Devastator and many others in Revenge of the Fallen?
Well, you introduce the Death Star Transformer!
For those who have no idea what I’m talking about, Unicron was the antagonist character introduced in the 1986 animated Transformers: The Movie. He’s so big that he transforms into a mechanical planet, or as Obi-Wan Kenobi would describe, “that’s no moon.”
I’ll try to be as brief as possible in describing Unicron’s role in that movie and how »

Anyone familiar with Michael Bay will know already that not only is he skilled at making flashy, pointless action movies, but he's also skilled at putting his erect ego into his own mouth and going to town. And now thanks to the crew over at Filmonic we get to see him at it again. This two-minute clip is a hidden Easter Egg on the Transformers 2 DVD released on October 20th, and now, just as Bay expected, some little .cyber freak. (Aka any person over the age of two with a DVD remote) found the clip and put all kinds of effort into pointing a camera at his TV and playing back the clip so he could post it on the internet. In the video, Bay mentions wanting to take a small break before Transformers 3, but we already know that he's working on TF3 with Ehren Kruger, since he »
If you get the right combination of vehicles on the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Blu-ray extra feature “The AllSpark Experiment” then director Michael Bay will appear on-screen and talk about Transformers 3. It’s quite marvellous. Someone has YouTubed the two minute clip which you can watch here. In the clip Bay talks about where he [...] »
'Transformers 3' Apparently there's a secret video you can unlock on the new Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen DVD, and on that video is an interview with Michael Bay where he talks about Transformers 3. While he claims to be lying about everything he says, the director does admit that it will be hard to top the action in part two and that they may need to go sideways instead of bigger with the third installment. He also calls for less action and more emotion, especially when it comes to the robots as characters. Excuse me, but I don't think fans want to date these robots – they want to watch them fight each other to the death. I say lose the boring, emotional character study and amp up the action just one more notch. Eh, make it two more notches. Watch the video...

I’m usually a pretty good barometer for how the majority of moviegoers feel about an upcoming film, but in the case of Transformers 3 I’m mystified. There’s been such a divisive split between those who hated Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen and those who think they loved it, that now I don’t know how many of you want to see a third installment (if only hoping one last time that it’s done right) – and those of you who cringe at the knowledge that Revenge of The Fallen made so much money Transformers 3 is going to happen no matter what.
Either way, one guy who already has his mind on Transformers 3 is Michael Bay, and he’s wondering how to outdo himself by actually proving that he can do more than make glossy, explosive, senseless sun-tanned spectacles for the screen. Buried in the special »
