While it might be far more exciting if Andy Samberg’s Hot Rod character was being brought into the Transformers franchise, we’ll have to settle for the recent reveal that the classic Autobot Hot Rod will return to the big screen in Transformers: The Last Knight.
Michael Bay revealed the latest addition to the Autobots roster overnight last night on Twitter, but rather than just showing off another vehicle that will turn into a robot in post-production, he actually showed the Autobot form of Hot Rod instead. Check out the Transformers The Last Knight Hot Rod design after the jump. Read More »

Star Trek Beyond shows a new side of the enterprise crew. While J.J. Abrams‘ Trek films are very dedicated to Kirk and Spock’s relationship, Justin Lin‘s sequel breathes more life into the supporting characters.

The good doctor is played by Karl Urban, who almost passed on his third outing as the character.

The actor was asked about the future of the Terminator franchise, which has been up in the air since Terminator Genisys underperformed last year. First any sequel was said to be canceled, but then Arnold Schwarzenegger said it was still happening. But if Jai Courtney has his way, he thinks the franchise should pack it up for awhile.

Production on Transformers: The Last Knight is underway right now, and we’ve seen plenty of firewroks from the set as Michael Bay shoots his action sequel around the country. But the franchise director took a break from blowing stuff up to reveal yet another one of the Transformers we’ll see, and it’s one that calls back to the days of the Transformers animated series from the 1980s.
Michael Bay revealed the Decepticon known as Onslaught will be part of the villain line-up this time, and while his vehicle form doesn’t look exactly like it did when he first appeared in the original series, he’s still a pretty intimidating truck.
