Transformers 4 has a director, a release date and, most recently, added a big-time star. That last one is a first for the mega-blockbuster robot franchise and with it brings a whole new set of expectations and level of anticipation. The film will once again be directed by Michael Bay and will now officially star Mark Wahlberg. It was originally scheduled to be release June 27, 2014 but in a new interview, Bay not only put that date into question, he raised a few more points about where the franchise is doing.
Previously, he’s revealed that the film would continue the same story from the first three films, just with new characters. Bay even hinted at the film going off the planet Earth. Now he’s added to those statements in regards to Wahlberg and more. Transformers 4 will take place four years after the end of Dark of the Moon and will come out July 4, 2014.

When Steven Spielberg‘s Lincoln was first announced, we all had a very rigid idea of what it would be: a beautiful, well-acted, historically accurate tale of our landmark 16th President. We then found out it would focus primarily on the last few months of his life and, most recently, we’ve been told the movie is surprisingly funny and expansive beyond just the title character, played by Daniel Day Lewis.
The international trailer for the film has just been released and it sells a slightly different feel than the original domestic trailers did. It’s similar, of course, but people who’ve seen the movie say this is a much more accurate portrayal of what you can expect when Lincoln hits theaters November 9 (or 16, depending on where you live). Check it out below. Read More »
Steven Spielberg‘s latest film, Lincoln, opens on November 9 and expands November 16. It tells the dramatic story of the final three months in Abraham Lincoln’s life, where he abolished slavery and united a nation in turmoil. Though Spielberg became famous with films featuring fantasy and adventure, for the past twenty years, he’s been much more interested in history: Schindler’s List, Saving Private Ryan, Munich and War Horse are just a handful of examples. Lincoln continues that trend, and in an interview the director did with 60 Minutes, he revealed action doesn’t excite him anymore.
During the interview, Spielberg also talked in-depth about his childhood, his relationship with his parents and much more. It’s an enlightening piece of journalism. Check it out below. Read More »
One of the great legacy’s of Breaking Bad will eventually be that it helped supercharge the careers of its two lead actors. Bryan Cranston has become a mainstay of Hollywood blockbusters, appearing in films like Total Recall, Argo, John Carter, and Rock of Ages. His partner, Aaron Paul, has yet to go that route, instead focusing on smaller films like Smashed. But with the series nearing its end, Paul is about to kick things into high gear. Literally.
He’s just been cast as the lead in Need for Speed, director Scott Waugh‘s adaptation of the EA Sports video game series. Read more after the jump. Read More »

With the fall movie season well underway, we have new promos for two releases due out in November. The first is a 90-second spot for Flight, Robert Zemeckis‘ long-awaited return to live action. Denzel Washington stars as a pilot who’s lauded as a hero when miraculously saves a plane full of passengers with a deft crash-landing. But as an investigation digs deeper into the circumstances surrounding the incident, the story and his life begins to unravel.
The other is an extended TV spot for Rise of the Guardians, a DreamWorks Animation tale about all the mythological figures of childhood imagination — Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, etc. — banding together to save the world from an evil spirit called Pitch. Watch both videos after the jump.

You’ve seen the trailer and the debate TV spot, and you’ve had a chance to read early reviews based on the “work in progress” print shown at the New York Film Festival. (Which, in all likelihood was very close to a final cut, save for a few nips and tucks.) Now you can watch director Steven Spielberg and star Daniel Day Lewis field questions about the film, thanks to the miracle of technology.
Lincoln looks at the last few months 16th President’s life, and as Angie described, follows “Lincoln’s attempt to push the Thirteenth Amendment, which abolishes slavery, through the House of Representatives. Meanwhile, at home, Lincoln’s marriage to Mary Todd (Sally Field) is strained by the death of their son Willie three years prior, and their eldest son Robert Todd (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is furious at his parents’ refusal to let him go to war.”
The Q&A touches on the reasons for focusing on some of those elements, and on the process employed to bring this version of Abraham Lincoln to the screen. Read More »
