Lindsay Lohan Wary That Her Past Might Undercut Her Chances Of Playing Batgirl

Lindsay Lohan as the next Barbara Gordon? Don’t count on it.

Despite lobbying for the title role in Warner Bros. and Joss Whedon’s Batgirl movie, Lohan is fully aware that her checkered past may derail the online campaign – regardless of how much momentum (read: Re-Tweets) it manages to build.

On last week’s episode of The Wendy Williams Show (h/t Batman-News), the former Mean Girls actress conceded that because people tend to dredge up her criminal record at every opportunity, the chances of “meeting with people to do Batgirl” are slim at best. Ditto for Mean Girls 2, and we’re not talking about Melanie Mayron’s standalone sequel.

You can’t fault her for trying, as Lindsay Lohan is clearly dead set about taking up the Batgirl mantle for Warner Bros. and Joss Whedon. Still, with such high-profile misdemeanors and probation violations on her record, it’d be a big,

Super Bowl 2018 Commercials Are Coming from Paramount and Universal

With the NFL Playoffs in full swing, the Super Bowl is just around the corner, with the big game on February 4 expected to feature a number of commercials promoting some of this year's biggest movies. A new report confirmed that both Universal Pictures and Paramount Pictures will be shelling out big bucks for ads during the game, although it hasn't been confirmed which movies will be promoted yet. Whichever ads ultimately air, these Super Bowl commercials will cost the studios a pretty penny. While the price for a 30-second spot for this year's game hasn't been confirmed, Fox charged a whopping $5 million per spot last year.

Even though the studios haven't confirmed which movies will be promoted during the big game, there are a few candidates available for each studio. The Fifty Shades finale, Fifty Shades Freed, will hit theaters on February 9, just five days after the big game, so

First Look at the Transformers Bumblebee Spinoff

So, we finally have our first look at the direction the Transformers franchise will be heading. Taking a cue from Marvel and DC, the battle between Autobots and Decepticons will be continued in a spinoff film in the winter of 2018. Everyone’s favorite little yellow Autobot, Bumblebee, is getting the first title. Although little is known about the movie at this point, Paramount has released the first official image from the film—Bumblebee (see below).

"Bumblebee: The Movie"

  • SneakPeek
Sneak Peek the autobot 'Bumblebee' from director Travis Knight's "Transformers" spin-off, "Bumblebee: The Movie", starring Hailee Steinfeld, opening December 21, 2018:

"...on the run in the year 1987, 'Bumblebee' finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. 'Charlie' (Steinfeld), on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow 'Vw' bug."

Traditionally Bumblebee's car form was depicted as a yellow 'Vw Beetle'...

...until director Michael Bay’s live-action feature "Transformers" (2007) converted the 'robot in disguise' into a 'Chevy Camaro'.

"It’s the story of a an 18-year-old girl," said "Bumblebee" producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura.

"She and 'Bumblebee' find each other, and they make each other whole. Bumblebee’s a very loving character. He’s got a lot of heart, so of course

New Synopsis Released For Director Travis Knight's Bumblebee

I'm not a fan of the Transformers film franchise, but I believe that there's a good chance this Bumblebee spinoff movie will actually be good. There's a talented team of individuals that are developing this movie and the fact that it's being directed by Travis Knight (Kubo and the Two Strings) is a huge plus.

Today we bring you a new high-resolution photo from the film and a synopsis that offers some additional details:

On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld), on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow Vw bug.

Director Travis Knight also previously made some encouraging statements about the film. One of the main things is he's looking to scale

First Look at Hailee Steinfeld in Transformer's Bumblebee

We still have an entire year to wait for the first solo Transformers movie to hit theaters, but that hasn't stopped Paramount Pictures from delivering the first image from Bumblebee!  Check out Hailee Steinfeld standing next to our favorite radio-using autobot, Bumblebee, in his classic digs!

Considering what we've had to endure with the more current Transformers tales, it's nice that Paramount is allowing the series to take a step back and show us where these characters came from.  While I love that they're going back to the classic Vw Bug, it is a little surprising

How Bumblebee Spinoff Is Different from Michael Bay's Transformers Movies

How Bumblebee Spinoff Is Different from Michael Bay's Transformers Movies
Travis Knight is looking to make Bumblebee standalone, away from Michael Bay's work with the Transformers franchise. Filming has recently wrapped for the project and it's currently in post-production, where Knight plans to make an emotional story based around a girl and her Transformer in the 1980s come to life with live-action acting and a mixture of CGI. The director has big shoes to fill and expectations to meet for the fans hoping that the movie won't be just some gigantic special effects montage with huge explosions everywhere, devoid of any real story, but Travis Knight seems to know what he's up against and how to work against it.

Travis Knight is best known for his work at Laika Animation and Kubo and the Two Strings, so there should be no problem getting the CGI Bumblebee to come to life on the big screen. The movie will be Knight's

First ‘Bumblebee’ Image Reveals Hailee Steinfeld in the ‘Transformers’ Spinoff

2017 is coming to a close, which means it’s time to start looking towards big films headed our way next year. One of those is Bumblebee, Paramount’s first spinoff of the Transformers franchise, and the first image from the new movie has landed online. Paramount tapped Laika CEO and Kubo and the Two Strings director Travis Knight to make his live-action directing debut on the pic, which finds Hailee Steinfeld taking on the lead human role. But as you can see in this first look image, there’s one major difference from the Transformers movies: Bumblebee is …

First Look at Bumblebee Movie Takes Transformers Back to the 80s

We're almost a year away from seeing the Bumblebee spin-off movie and we now have our first official image featuring a 1987 yellow Vw Beetle alongside Hailee Steinfeld as the 18-year old Charlie Watson. Bumblebee is a beloved character from the Transformers franchise and the announcement of a standalone movie featuring the yellow bug was a welcome one. Transformers on the big screen has been a mixed bag to say the least with the most recent movie, The Last Knight, getting torn apart by fans and critics. Bumblebee: The Movie looks to go back to the franchise's roots to remind people why they fell in love with the Transformers in the first place.

The new promotional image from the Bumblebee movie features Hailee Steinfeld's Charlie Watson character hanging with the 1987 version of Bumblebee on a dirt road. Steinfeld's Watson character is still in high school and is a mechanic who discovers Bumblebee.

Photo From The Bumblebee Movie Shows Hailee Steinfeld with The Yellow Vw Bug

I'm not really a big fan of Michael Bay's Transformers franchise. The movies just seemed to get worse and worse as time went on. But, I do have a little hope that this Bumblebee spinoff film will be good. Right off the bat, there are four things about it that get me excited.

The director of Kubo and the Two Strings, Travis Knight, is helming the movie. I loved Kubo and I hope he can bring that magic to Bumblebee. The movie also stars Hailee Steinfeld, who is talented young actress. Finally, the movie is set in the 80s and Bumblebee is actually going to be a Vw bug. This could actually work.

Today we have a cool new photo from the film giving us our first look at Hailee Steinfeld standing with Bumblebee. While talking about his approach to the film with Empire (via Cbm), director Travis Knight

Hailee Steinfeld Wants to Play Barbara Gordon in Joss Whedon's Batgirl Film

It seems like we've still got a long way to go before we see anything from Joss Whedon's Batgirl film. We know that he's still developing it and that Warner Bros. still wants him to do it, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it all comes together. One thing that fans are anxious about seeing is who will end up being cast in the role of Barbara Gordon a.k.a. Batgirl.

One actress that wants to throw her name into the hat is Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit, Pitch Perfect 2, Bumblebee). During a recent interview with MTV International, Steinfeld was asked about the possibility of playing the character. She was very flattered by the notion and said that she would love to do it.

“Thank you! I’m not going to lie, that’s kind of what I was thinking. But I didn’t know what to say.

Hailee Steinfeld Wants to Be Joss Whedon's Batgirl

21-year old actress Hailee Steinfeld has revealed that she would like to step up and play Batgirl in Joss Whedon's movie that is currently in development. Reports recently surfaced that claimed Warner Bros. made a decision "months ago" to not to bring Joss Whedon back for Batgirl, after the Justice League reshoots went on far too long, with a controversial letter written by the director's ex-wife reportedly playing a factor in the studio's "decision" to remove him from Batgirl. However, that initial report has been debunked, and Joss Whedon is still attached to the project.

During a recent interview with MTV International, Hailee Steinfeld was asked about the possibility of her playing the DC Extended Universe's Barbara Gordon. The actress and singer seemed very flattered by the possibility, and admitted that she'd love to play the role. In response, the young actress said, "Thank you! I'm not going to lie,

Bumblebee And Pitch Perfect 3 Star Hailee Steinfeld Wants To Play Batgirl

There’s a good deal of uncertainty surrounding Batgirl at the moment, and a lot of that stems from the debacle that was Justice League. Due to the pic disappointing both critically and financially, the studio’s now lost faith in Joss Whedon, from what we hear, and are reconsidering letting him direct the aforementioned upcoming project. In fact, we’ve even heard that it might be cancelled outright.

Chalk that up as a rumor for now, but it’s clear that there’s some re-shuffling going on behind the scenes at Warner Bros. and unfortunately, Batgirl may be in trouble. Still, that hasn’t stopped various actresses from throwing their hat into the ring for the titular role and the latest to do so is Bumblebee and Pitch Perfect 3 star Hailee Steinfeld.

While chatting with MTV in a recent interview, the outlet told her that they think she

Is John Cena Going to Be in HBO’s Watchmen Series?

When you think of wrestlers that have made it to the silver screen, names such as Dave Bautista and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson likely come to mind. In fact, these two made their way from the square arena to the sliver screen pretty easily and with great reception from fans. Now, this duo may have another joining their ranks. John Cena is also making his way to movie-stardom. So far, he has played smaller, yet significant roles in films including the “Transformers” spin-off “Bumblebee,” “Daddy’s Home 2,” and “Trainwreck.” While he hasn’t had the interesting or unexpected roles the others

John Cena teasing Doctor Manhattan role in Watchmen TV series?

Rumours are circulating that the Doctor of Thuganomics could be set to take on the role of Doctor Manhattan, with recent social media postings by John Cena leading to speculation that the WWE star is in line for the role of Manhattan in HBO’s upcoming Watchmen TV series from Damon Lindelof.

Now, it is of course possible that Cena is simply a fan of Watchmen, or he’s trying to drum up some support for himself in the role as he attempts to follow in Dwayne Johnson’s footsteps and continue his transition from the squared circle to Hollywood.

Cena will next be heard in the animated film Ferdinand, and has the comedy Blockers and Transformers spinoff Bumblebee incoming in 2018.

John Cena is still not over Nikki Bella's shocking elimination on Dancing With the Stars.

Et caught up with the 40-year-old WWE star at the Daddy's Home 2 junket and premiere in Los Angeles over the weekend, where he marveled over his fiancée's journey on the dance competition show -- and how she handled getting booted off during week seven.

"I thought she handled it great," Cena told Et's Kevin Frazier. "I think I handled it worse. I was very shocked, I was filming nights on Bumblebee, so I couldn't be there. I tried to be there as much as I could for her, and I guess, in hindsight, I wish I was there more.
