A new trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction hits the web early Thursday morning. In preparation for that launch, director Michael Bay has uploaded some new posters. Four, in fact. Three international and one domestic images have hit the net for the fourth Transformers film that opens June 27 here in the U.S.
To be honest, these are basically just elaborate photoshops of images we’ve seen before. Still, Optimus Prime has a cool new shield, and checking these out will get you in the mood for the new trailer. Check out the new Transformers 4 posters below along with a few other pieces of news involving Oreo and Imagine Dragons. Read More »
It’s always good when major actors are cast in a film two months before it opens right? No? Well, it’s a little less of an issue when they’re the voices of two supporting characters. Which is what director Michael Bay just announced.
Bay revealed that John Goodman and Ken Watanabe have joined the cast of Transformers: Age of Extinction as the voices of Autobots Hound and Drift. Below, read who else will join them in as voices in the Transformers Age of Extinction cast. Read More »
It’s no secret Cameron Crowe had problems giving his 2000 semi-autobiographical film a title. At one point it was actually called Untitled, a clever nod to the musical story held within, as well as an admission of defeat. The studio wouldn’t let that fly, so Crowe went through many different titles before settling on Almost Famous. And it’s a perfect title.
For a contribution to the 300th issue of Empire Magazine, Crowe dug up the original notebook pages where he brainstormed all kinds of different titles for the movie, much like William Miller does during the credits of the film. Check out Cameron Crowe’s alternate Almost Famous titles below. Read More »
Which film will the director of Lincoln do next? There are quite a few options, and now yet another has cropped up. Thanks to a new attachment, Steven Spielberg may direct The BFG, an adaptation of the Roald Dahl book.
Sorry, Doom fans, that title doesn’t refer to a rifle. It’s an acronym for “Big Friendly Giant.” The 1982 story, as Angie once explained, follows “a girl named Sophie, who encounters and befriends the Big Friendly Giant. Though his initial appearance is intimidating, the BFG turns out to be a softhearted soul who’s considered an outcast by the other giants because unlike his peers, he refuses to eat boys and girls.”
Dreamworks picked up rights to the book in 2011, and set Melissa Mathison to script an adaptation. She wrote a Spielberg film you’re probably familiar with: E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial. Now there’s a chance they’ll reunite if Spielberg directs The BFG.

The big character reveal that some people probably wanted to avoid in the last full trailer for How to Train Your Dragon 2 is front and center in this new one. So that’s a warning, but at this point, it seems like the studio is determined to give that particular point away.

The image above is a hint, and it also involves a sheep. That’s all you need to know — check out the new How to Train Your Dragon 2 trailer below. Read More »
