Akiva Goldsman Transformers

When Paramount and Hasbro began laying the groundwork for a potential Transformers Cinematic Universe, they hired Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman to lead a writers room to expand the world. The first movie that resulted from that writers room was this summer’s Transformers: The Last Knight, with a Bumblebee standalone movie next in line.

Things got less certain in the lead-up to The Last Knight’s release, with both director Michael Bay and star Mark Wahlberg suggesting they were done with Transformers movies. Now, /Film has learned that Goldsman is done, too. Goldsman spoke with us at the Television Critics Association, where he was representing Star Trek: Discovery.

Suburbicon Trailer - Matt Damon

Directing duo Joel & Ethan Coen love bringing a little dark comedy to the big screen, and that’s exactly what they’re going to get with Suburbicon.

The directors behind No Country for Old Men and The Big Lebowski aren’t behind the camera this time, but instead, they’ve let their former leading man George Clooney take over the directing duties for a script they wrote. The result appears to be a twisted comedy of murder in the suburbs with a promising blend of quirky laughter and brutal violence.

Watch the Suburbicon trailer below to see what we’re talking about. Read More »

Ghost in the Shell Honest Trailer

There was plenty of controversy stirring around Paramount Pictures’ adaptation of the anime Ghost in the Shell. Most of it was because of the continued whitewashing of source material, but aside from that large complaint, the movie really just wasn’t all that remarkable. Even if the lead weren’t played by white Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson, it would still have been quite the disappointing adaptation of a beloved piece of anime.

That means it’s time for Screen Junkies to do their worst by delivering the Honest Trailer for Ghost in the Shell, pointing out all the places it went wrong, and somehow only clocking in around four minutes.

SUBURBICON

George Clooney and Joel and Ethan Coen have been working together for 17 wonderful years. The filmmakers often turn one of our most charismatic, confident and thoughtful actors into a complete and utter buffoon. For years, they’ve made Clooney play some of their most appealing dim-witted characters. In their latest collaboration, he ain’t playing no moron. In fact, he’s playing nobody in their latest collaboration. With Suburbicon, Clooney is directing a script from the Coen Brothers.

Below, check out the Suburbicon first look.

cloverfield 3 release date

The third Cloverfield film, tentatively titled 2017 Cloverfield Movie, may have to change its working title. The release date for the sequel to 2008’s Cloverfield and 2016’s 10 Cloverfield Lane has been pushed back to 2018.

This makes it the second delay for the sci-fi movie originally titled The God Particle. The film is the third set in the Cloverfield universe, which has acted as a sort of connective tissue between original genre films that have been picked up by Paramount and J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions.

Terminator 2 4K Box Set

Terminator 2: Judgment Day has been available on various home video formats for over 25 years now, but this fall it will be available for the first time in the high quality format of 4K Ultra HD, and there’s even a limited edition box set that comes with quite the cool piece of memorabilia.
