Get Tied Down With First Trailer for 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

24 July 2014 10:39 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

No longer the erotic haven for soccer moms across America, "Fifty Shades of Grey" is now a full-blown pop-culture phenomenon that Universal hopes will boost its Q1 earnings. Yes, the "Fifty Shades of Grey" motion picture trailer has landed. Aside from observing the ways it might be reworked into a mock trailer about a serial killer luring a young woman, the material looks awfully bland, speaking for both Sam Taylor-Johnson’s drab aesthetics and the chemistry (or lack thereof) between Jamie Dornan’s Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson’s Anastasia Steele. One hopes the movie itself, produced by Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti and written by Kelly Marcel ("Saving Mr. Banks") is not as timid as this. Have a look below, previewing what the studio will release this Valentine’s Day (har har har): »

24 July 2014 6:44 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The time has come for all the women to go wild as the first trailer for the adaptation of the best-selling erotic romance novel Fifty Shades of Grey has arrived. Based on E.L. James' book of the same name, a provocative love story unfolds as a college graduate named Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) develops a unique romance with the dominant, young entrepreneur Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan). This looks to be pretty much what we expected, but probably won't end up satisfying the salacious sexual appetites of the readers who've built up this sexy story in their head for a few years now. But you never know. Watch below! Here's the first full trailer for Sam Taylor-Johnson's Fifty Shades of Grey from Universal's YouTube: Fifty Shades of Grey is being directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson (Nowhere Boy) and written by Kelly Marcel (Saving Mr. Banks), based on E.L. James' best-selling novel. »

Steady Yourselves – The First Trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey is Here

24 July 2014 5:28 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

At the start of the week, the first preview for Fifty Shades of Grey landed online in a pretty unexpected place – Beyoncé’s Instagram. The footage teased the arrival of the full trailer today, and Focus and Universal have delivered, as promised.

Adapting E.L. James’ best-selling novel, the first in a trilogy, the film is dated for Valentine’s 2015, and I’m seriously wondering if birth rates will have a measurable rise when November 2015 rolls around.

Here’s the synopsis from the original novel:

As literature student Anastasia Steele interviews successful young entrepreneur Christian Grey for the student newspaper, she finds him attractive, enigmatic and intimidating. Convinced their meeting went badly, she tries to put Grey out of her mind – until he happens to turn up at the store where she works part-time. Ana, innocent and unworldly, is shocked to find herself desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, »

First Look: Toronto Best Actress Candidate Jessica Chastain Stars in Liv Ullmann's 'Miss Julie' (Trailer)

22 July 2014 1:25 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Now that the dust is settling around the recent flurry of fall film festival announcements, one promising entry is a Toronto world premiere: Norwegian actress-writer-director Liv Ullmann's adaptation of Swedish playwright August Strindberg’s 1888 classic "Miss Julie." The film starring Jessica Chastain ("Zero Dark Thirty"), Colin Farrell ("Saving Mr. Banks") and Samantha Morton ("A.I.") seeks a North American distributor. Whether it would make it into this year's Oscar race depends on how it plays in Toronto. French international sales agency Wild Bunch is handling sales.  Chastain has been in-demand, earning back-to-back Oscar nominations for supporting actress for "The Help" in 2012 and Best Actress in Kathryn Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty" in 2013. The Weinstein Company plans an awards push for the single-film version of "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby" which debuted as two films »

Beyoncé Shares First Teaser for Fifty Shades of Grey, Full Trailer Lands Thursday

21 July 2014 2:29 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

With Comic-Con fast approaching later this week, it’s easy to forget that 2015 will play host to some very high-profile films that won’t be making an appearance in San Diego. Fifty Shades of Grey is undeniably one of the biggest, and Universal has cemented that status even further by having Beyoncé launch the first official footage from the film.

The first trailer is set to launch this coming Thursday, right when we’re expecting to start seeing footage emerge from Comic-Con, which makes for a very interesting choice from Universal and Focus.

Courtesy of Amazon, here’s the synopsis for E.L. James’ original novel:

When literature student Anastasia Steele interviews successful entrepreneur Christian Grey, she finds him very attractive and deeply intimidating. Convinced that their meeting went badly, she tries to put him out of her mind – until he turns up at the store where she works part-time, and invites her out. »

Transformers: Age of Extinction heading to $900 million worldwide

20 July 2014 9:51 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may have lost top spot at the box office to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, but Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction has pushed its worldwide haul to a whopping $886 million this weekend, further extending its lead as the highest-grossing movie of the year as well as surpassing the $709. million of the original Transformers and the $836.3 million of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. A billion looks all but assured for Age of Extinction, while the franchise high of $1.123 billion set by Transformers: Dark of the Moon is certainly an achievable target.

Transformers: Age of Extinction sees Michael Bay directing a cast that includes Mark Wahlberg (Pain & Gain), Jack Reynor (What Richard Did), Nicola Peltz (Bates Motel), Stanley Tucci (Captain America: The First Avenger), Li Bingbing (Resident Evil: Retribution), Sophia Myles (Underworld), Victoria Summer (Saving Mr. Banks), Titus Welliver (Lost) and T.J.

Transformers: Age of Extinction becomes the highest-grossing movie of 2014

13 July 2014 11:16 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Well, X-Men: Days of Future Past’s stay as the biggest earner of the year didn’t last long, with Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction shrugging aside almost universal negative reviews to become the highest-grossing movie of 2014 so far, with a whopping $752 million worldwide just three weekends after its release. The fourth instalment in the Hasbro franchise looks set to become the first (and only?) release of the year to crack a billion – although The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies may have something to say about that.

Transformers: Age of Extinction is out now, with Bay directing a cast that includes Mark Wahlberg (Pain & Gain), Jack Reynor (What Richard Did), Nicola Peltz (Bates Motel), Stanley Tucci (Captain America: The First Avenger), Li Bingbing (Resident Evil: Retribution), Sophia Myles (Underworld), Victoria Summer (Saving Mr. Banks), Titus Welliver (Lost) and T.J.

Colin Farrell in Talks for True Detective Season Two; Taylor Kitsch and Garrett Hedlund Also Eyed

11 July 2014 10:47 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Despite how impressive the first few trailers for True Detective were, it’s fair to say that no one could have ever predicted just how huge the critically acclaimed series would become, creating intense speculation and theories online, and later the extremely funny #TrueDetectiveSeason2 hashtag.

Despite both being nominated for Emmys and a host of other awards, neither Matthew McConaughey or Woody Harrelson will return for season two of True Detective after their stories were wrapped up in the first eight episodes. A number of names have since been suggested and rumoured to replace them.

Well, we finally have something a little more definite as Deadline reports that Seven Psychopaths and Saving Mr. Banks star Colin Farrell is deep in talks for one of what is expected to be three main roles.

The Irish actor looks set to be joined by John Carter and Savages star Taylor Kitsch who The »

Transformers: Age of Extinction crosses $600 million at the global box office

9 July 2014 11:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The box office juggernaut that is Transformers: Age of Extinction just keeps on rolling. One day after becoming China’s highest-grossing movie ever, the Michael Bay-directed sequel has now passed the $600 million mark worldwide, with a domestic haul of $185 million and an international take of $421.2 million giving the film a whopping $606.5 million already. It’s surely only a matter of time before Age of Extinction overtakes Fox’s X-Men: Days of Future Past to become the biggest earner of the year so far, and at this stage it looks all but assured that it will go on to become the first billion dollar release of 2014.

Transformers: Age of Extinction is out now, with Bay directing a cast that includes Mark Wahlberg (Pain & Gain), Jack Reynor (What Richard Did), Nicola Peltz (Bates Motel), Stanley Tucci (Captain America: The First Avenger), Li Bingbing (Resident Evil: Retribution), Sophia Myles (Underworld), Victoria Summer »

Transformers: Age of Extinction concept art of unused Transformers

8 July 2014 8:58 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Prior to the production of Transformers: Age of Extinction, there was a deal in place between Paramount and motor vehicle company Polaris for them to create Transformers based off their machines. These would have included ATVs, snowmobiles etc. For whatever reason, the deal didn’t go through and the characters were scrapped.

Michael Hirtz (via Cbm) has now shared some of his concepts for what those Transformers would have looked like. They also write, “he informs us that these robots would’ve been relatively small as compared to the normal-sized Transformers. Somewhere around 8-10ft max, based on the types of vehicles Polaris manufactures. Hritz’s designs also do a great job of incorporating the look of Polaris’ vehicles by ‘exposing shocks and linkages, using roll-cages and vehicle structure, aggressive/colorful forms floating over blacked-out mechanical parts.’”

Transformers: Age of Extinction breaks Chinese box office records

8 July 2014 1:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been top of the Us box office for two weeks and it looks to be taking the crown from Mrs. Brown’s Boys D’Movie when it’s officially released here in the UK this Friday, but it looks like Transformers: Age of Extinction has broken new ground in China already, knocking Avatar from its box office record spot.

The film has grossed RMB740 million ($119.8 million) in its opening week to combine with the RMB628 million ($101.7 million) it took in its opening weekend. That gives Transformers: Age of Extinction a 10-day total of RMB1.37 billion ($221.9 million).

Avatar‘s has held the box office record since its release in 2009. The press release given to Flickering Myth also states that the Chinese currency is appreciated more, which means it has made more dollars per Rmb than James Cameron’s movie.

Paramount are yet to confirm these figures.

The movie has also way-surpassed its predecessor, »

The Flickering Myth Podcast – Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014)

7 July 2014 8:51 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Flickering Myth Podcast is more than meets the eye….

Perhaps the most critic proof franchise in the history of cinema is back with a bang as Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction has landed! The movie has made nearly $600 million worldwide in around 10 days which is a staggering achievement, but what did our writers think?

In what is perhaps our most hotly-debated podcast in recent memory, Flickering Myth co-editor Luke Owen is joined by staff writers Amon Warmann, Anthony Stokes, Rohan Morbey and Scott Davis to discuss Transformers: Age of Extinction – what was good, what was bad, laughing at product placement and the “Bayhem” and asking why there was a joke about statutory rape in a movie made to sell toys for children.

Warning – this podcast contains strong language, strong opinions and some spoilers.

Transformers: Age of Extinction hits $575 million worldwide

6 July 2014 11:44 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like X-Men: Days of Future Past is on borrowed time as the highest-grossing movie of the year so far, with Michael Bay’s latest Transformers: Age of Extinction shaking off a mauling from critics [read our ★ reviews here, here and here] to hit $575 million at the worldwide box office just 12 days after it starting rolling out across the globe. By close of play this weekend, the fourth instalment in the Transformers franchise will be sitting on $175 domestically, with a further $400 million from international markets.

All this is despite a delayed release schedule across Europe and Latin America (it came out here in the UK just yesterday), and is due in no small part to its terrific performance in China, where it’s made $212 million alone so far. At this rate, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Age of Extinction hitting Transformers: Dark of the Moon numbers, with the third movie currently the highest »

Watch this brilliant Transformers stop-motion animation

6 July 2014 3:28 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Not happy with Michael Bay’s latest interpretation of The Transformers? Then you may find a bit more joy in this 4-minute stop-motion animation from Harris Loureiro which sees Optimus Prime take on the Constructicons and Devastator. It’s pretty awesome.

According to Loureiro, he shot the short in September last year and then started the edit in May 2014, which took him around a month. Some impressive work for just a month of editing!

The short is very reminiscent for those who loved the 1986 The Transformers: The Movie as it features classic Vince Dicola scoring and Stan Bush’s iconic The Touch.

Transformers: Age of Extinction is currently out in North America and is released in the UK on July 5th, with a cast that includes Mark Whalberg (Pain & Gain), Jack Reynor (What Richard Did), Nicola Peltz (Bates Motel), Stanley Tucci (Captain America: The First Avenger), Li Bingbing (Resident Evil: Retribution »

Michael Bay responds again to critics who didn’t like Transformers: Age of Extinction

4 July 2014 1:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this week, Michael Bay spoke out about critics who didn’t like this latest blockbuster Transformers: Age of Extinction, which has been panned by almost every critic under the sun. In the interview, Bay essestinally said, “haters gonna hate”. While promoting the film in Dublin ahead of its release tomorrow here in the UK, Michael Bay once again called out the critics.

“I work as hard as I can and I’m glad that people are liking the movie besides the critics, let’s just forget the critics,” he said, adding that “the people in the audience are liking the movies – that’s what I make movies for.”

Bay also thinks “critics only screenings” should be changed saying, “I think that they should make it mandatory for reviewers that they sit in the audiences – just be themselves surrounded by a real audience”.
