Last weekend brought a new clip from Transformers: The Last Knight, not to mention an extended TV spot giving us a peek at baby Dinobots and showing us just how tough the franchise’s young new star, Isabela Moner, is going to be. Now we get a much better look at the Bayhem that’s in store for us this summer with a brand new Transformers The Last Knight trailer.
This time there’s some more snippets of the story, but as usual, the focus is on all the new Autobots and Decepticons that your kids will want to pick up from the toy store after they seem them smash into each other on the big screen. Watch the new trailer after the jump. Read More »
On a particularly hot summer day, seeing a new disaster pic starring Dwayne Johnson doesn’t sound like such a bad plan.

Well, during the commercial breaks between the 2017 Kids’ Choice Awards last night, Paramount Pictures also offered up a new TV spot that gives us a more proper introduction to the character, as well as some cute baby Dinobots, some new action from director Michael Bay, and the return of Grimlock.

Just a couple months ago, Transformers: The Last Knight unfurled an epic Super Bowl spot with tons of new footage from what is (again) meant to be director Michael Bay’s last outing with the toy-based blockbuster franchise. Combine that with the previous teaser trailer, and we really still don’t know much about the story at the center of this sequel.
Today, some new Transformers The Last Knight footage debuted during Nickelodeon’s 2017 Kids’ Choice Awards, and it provided even more of a tease of what’s to come.

For fans of the original Ghost in the Shell anime and manga who might be perturbed by the fact that the live-action adaptation from Paramount Pictures is starring Scarlett Johansson, creating another instance of whitewashing in Hollywood, the studio is trying to make amends in an interesting but potentially problematic way.
When a Hollywood film is released in Japan, audiences can choose to see it with subtitles or dubbed by actors. In the case of Ghost in the Shell, the actors doing the voiceover work for the dubbed version will be the original voice actors of the anime adaptation from 1995. Read More »
There are some really big movies hitting theaters this month. Logan is in theaters now, Kong: Skull Island arrives next week (and it’s fantastic), Beauty and the Beast arrives on March 17 (and it’s also pretty good), Power Rangers follows on March 24, and then we come to Paramount’s contribution to a surprisingly packed blockbuster month: Ghost in the Shell.
Based on the acclaimed manga of the same name, Ghost in the Shell takes Scarlett Johansson into the future as a new cyber-enhanced soldier who is part of a team tasked with taking down dangerous criminals. However, slowly the secret behind her creation starts to be revealed, and it has far more sinister origins.

The Transformers movies released so far have been a linear series of sequels, but a little while back we heard they’d be branching out into spinoffs — and now one of those spinoffs is taking a massive, alien-robot-sized step forward. The Bumblebee movie has reportedly found a director in Travis Knight, who last helmed Laika’s Kubo and the Two Strings. Read More »

Later this month brings the live-action adaptation of the iconic manga Ghost in the Shell. It remains to be seen if this new take on the material will be something that can resonate with both general audiences who may not be familiar with the title or those who are loyal to the manga and the beloved anime adaptation. Regardless of whether or not the movie turns out to be praiseworthy, one aspect of the production undeniably deserves acclaim, and that’s some of the work done by Weta Workshop.
Weta Workshop quickly became the go-to company for both practical and visual effects after their work on Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy, and since then they’ve been part of countless Hollywood productions, churning out some truly outstanding work. Ghost in the Shell is no exception, and you can see their quality work in a video with former Mythbusters co-host Adam Savage exploring the robotic geisha masks created for the movie with Weta’s founder and creative director Richard Taylor.

Welcome to 2017, where Martin Scorsese‘s long-awaited The Irishman, which will reunite him with Robert De Niro for the first time since 1995, is heading straight to Netflix. Think about reading that sentence ten years ago and then realize how much the movie world has fundamentally changed…and how debuting on a streaming service no longer carries the low-rent reputation associated with direct-to-video movies. Netflix has made it clear in the past that they’d very much like to be in the business of making prestige pictures and this feels like them doubling down on that mission.
