Michael Bay shares Transformers: The Last Knight image featuring new character Squeeks

23 June 2016 4:41 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Michael Bay has taken to Instagram to share a new set photo from Transformers: The Last Knight, which sees the director joined by young female lead Isabel Moner, along with a new Transformer character called Squeeks, who we assume is an Autobot.

The character of Squeeks was mentioned in last week’s rumours, which would seemingly confirm the original report concerning the plot for the fifth instalment of the blockbuster series. If you want to know more, read our report here.

Transformers: The Last Knight reunites Michael Bay with Transformers: Age of Extinction star Mark Wahlberg, while Josh Duhamel is also reprising his role as Lieutenant Colonel William Lennox from the first three movies and Peter Cullen will once again voice Autobot leader Optimus Prime. New additions to the cast include Isabela Moner (100 Things to Do Before High School), Jerrod Carmichael (Bad Neighbours), Laura Haddock (Guardians of the Galaxy) and »

Meet Autobot Vespa Squeeks in Latest Transformers 5 Photos

23 June 2016 10:23 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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.

The Last Knight centers on Optimus Prime, »

The fifth "Transformers" film is rumored to involve a connection between the medieval ages and the Transformers, who were supposedly the ones responsible for giving magic to King Arthur's wizard, Merlin. Another rumor suggest the planet transformer, Unicron, is the main villain for the new film which will see the return of Megatron, who was resurrected in "Transformers: Age Of Extinction."

Rumoured plot and character details for Transformers: The Last Knight

14 June 2016 3:48 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With cameras rolling on Transformers: The Last Knight, the folks at Joblo are claiming to have the inside scoop on the plot for the fifth entry in Michael Bay’s blockbuster franchise. Now, these are rumours, but if you want to avoid any potential spoilers, you should maybe stop reading now.

So, according to the site, the plot will see Optimus Prime discovering that Cybertron is now a dead planet, which he is somehow responsible for. In order to revive the planet, he needs to find an artifact on Earth with ties to British mythology.

Enter Merlin, the wizard of Arthurian legend, who was apparently granted the power of magic by a Transformer, which ties in to said artifact (which the report speculates may be Excalibur, the legendary sword of King Arthur.

The report also goes on to state that Optimus will be joined by Bumblebee, Hound, Crosshairs and Drift, along with the Dinobots, and new additions the ‘Mini-Dinobots’. Other new Transformers include the English-accented Cogman (an Astin Martin) and Squeaks (a Vespa), as well as ‘The Creator’, who is said to have ties to the origins of the Robots in Disguise.

Transformers: The Last Knight reunites Michael Bay with Transformers: Age of Extinction star Mark Wahlberg, while Josh Duhamel is also reprising his role as Lieutenant Colonel William Lennox from the first three movies and Peter Cullen will once again voice Autobot leader Optimus Prime. New additions to the cast include Isabela Moner (100 Things to Do Before High School), Jerrod Carmichael (Bad Neighbours) and Anthony Hopkins (Thor: The Dark World).

Decepticon Cop Car Barricade Returns in Transformers 5

10 June 2016 10:39 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

'To punish and enslave.' That's the motto of Decepticon Barricade, who returns in Transformers: The Last Knight under the guise of a police cruiser. This robot in disguise is just the latest character confirmed for the impending sequel, which is shooting right now under the direction of Michael Bay. It was Bay who first shared this image of the mighty Decepticon on his website.

Always the 'bad cop', Barricade was first seen in the original 2007 Transformers movie and went onto appear in the next two sequels, 2009's Revenge of the Fallen and 2011's Dark of the Moon. He wasn't a key player in Age of Extinction, but he did show up in footage from the Barricade at the Battle of Chicago, shown to demonstrate how dangerous these robots are. Barricade is known as a very 'complicated' robot and is notorious for his fractious' attitude, even by Decepticon standards. While »

Deadpool writers reveal that Fox asked for a PG-13 version

10 June 2016 4:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back when the film was first announced, there were several rumours running around that 20th Century Fox wanted a PG-13 version of Deadpool, despite what Ryan Reynolds and the director kept telling fans. Well, according to the writers, a PG-13 version of Deadpool was written and nearly made.

“We got reasonably close to that”, Rhett Reese told Den of Geek. “In that, Fox asked us at one point ‘hey, write the PG-13 version and we can make a decision based off that’.”

“We did it”, he adds. “We sold our soul for a few minutes [laughs]. But interestingly the PG-13 version is not that different from the R version. The language is reduced, the sexual content is reduced, but most of the action and the structure of the movie and the scenes were all the same. It was up to Fox to look at it and decided ‘should we make this? »

Deadpool is big in Japan, dethrones Zootopia at the box office

9 June 2016 4:17 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may have hit cinemas months ago (and is already available on Blu-ray and DVD in several markets), but the Merc with a Mouth has just made his way over to Japan, with 20th Century Fox’s Deadpool dethroning Zootopia at the Japanese box office with a five-day opening haul of $6.5 million.

Deadpool is currently sitting on $771.2 million globally, and Fox must be hoping that its run in Japan can push the X-Men spinoff to the $800 million mark. For comparison, Zootopia opened with $3.99 million (albeit from a two-day weekend) and has so far grossed $56.67 million, so it’s certainly possible that Deadpool could add another $30 million from the market.

How Ilm Partnership Helped Base FX Become a Budding Powerhouse

9 June 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The feature film visual effects industry has all but fled California, chasing incentives to whatever corner of the map may offer them. Yet Industrial Light & Magic remains in the Golden State, in part because of its its partnership with Beijing’s Base FX.

Years ago, Lucasfilm’s leaders realized that while much vfx had become commoditized, Ilm excelled in two areas that could command a premium price: high-end, research-intensive vfx, and production management for subcontractors. The key was finding such subcontractors.

Gretchen Libby, Ilm executive in charge of global studios, found Base FX on a trip to China. In 2007, Ilm entered a partnership with Beijing-based BaseFX that continues today.

Initially, Ilm had a financial stake in Base; now China Media Capital has stepped in. But Base remains exclusive to Ilm for all Hollywood studio pictures. The deal lets Ilm treat Base as essentially an extension of its own workforce, so »

Although best known for his work as Dr. Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal and Red Dragon, the actor also has appeared and been praised for his performances in such films as The Elephant Man, The Remains of the Day, Nixon and Amistad.

Warcraft: how success in China could mean a sequel

Fantasy epic Warcraft hasn’t wowed critics, but it’s predicted to be a major hit in China - which could result in a sequel...

You may have noticed that reviews for Warcraft, the adaptation of Blizzard’s hit videogame franchise, weren’t exactly kind. While Duncan Jones’ fantasy has found its defenders - Mark Kermode and your humble writer being among them - the film’s welter of characters and CGI battles haven’t gone down well with most. Nor is its Us opening projected to be stratospheric; predictions from Hollywood crystal ball gazers suggest that Warcraft will make around $25m on its opening weekend, which places it well behind the $40m projection for The Conjuring 2. When you consider that Warcraft is a $160m+ would-be franchise opener and that the Conjuring sequel cost a fraction of that, the news doesn’t sound good.

Stan Lee jokes that his Deadpool cameo made him “damn mad”

1 June 2016 7:52 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Stan Lee enjoyed one of his more memorable Marvel cameos earlier this year, popping up as a DJ in a strip club in February’s smash hit Deadpool.

The Marvel legend had previously joked that he was disappointed the producers had him in and out of the club so quickly, but he’s now revealed that he never actually got to set foot in the place – and it made him “damn mad”.

“I don’t know if I should tell you the truth about that cameo,” said Lee at MegaCon in Orlando, Florida. “I was not in the topless dancing place. I did that in a studio and then they put it into the movie. I’m damn mad about that! I made them promise on the next one, I’m going to be right there.”
