Mark Wahlberg Will Be Back For ‘Transformers 5′

mark wahlberg Transformers 5

If the ending of Transformers: Age of Extinction didn’t promise a sequel, those box office receipts did. Besides dismal reviews all around, and the lowest domestic gross of the franchise, Age of Extinction grossed over a billion dollars worldwide. Transformers 5 was quickly announced for a tentative 2016 release. The problem being, no one knew who was coming back or not, starting right at the top with director Michael Bay.

Well, we now know at least one person who will most likely be back. Mark Wahlberg, who joined the franchise with the last film, said in a new interview that he’s committed to “a couple more” films in the franchise. Read more about Mark Wahlberg Transformers 5 below. Read More »

Hobbit Battle of the Five Armies review

Note: This review originally ran on December 9. We’ve republished now that The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is in theaters.

Every time Peter Jackson returns to Middle Earth, we expect something special. All of his Lord of the Rings films got Best Picture nominations and while The Hobbit films haven’t lived up to the achievement of the first three movies, they’ve had their moments. In my reviews of An Unexpected Journey, and The Desolation of Smaug I found things to like about each film, despite their flaws.

So, following the trajectory of the first trilogy, I hoped The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies would be the best of the bunch. Imagine my disappointment to find out it was the opposite. Below, read our Hobbit The Battle of the Five Armies review. Read More »

andy serkis star wars

The Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer was filled with so many visual stimulants, it’s funny how the auditory one has become the most interesting point of conversation. After some debate, we found it was Andy Serkis delivering the clip’s chilling monologue. Not only was it chilling because of the voice itself; it was the words delivered. This character would have to be incredibly important to have felt a literal awakening in both sides of the Force. Rumors began running rampant about the character. Is Serkis a Sith? How old is he? Could he be more than one character? Will be play a performance-capture or human character?

Now the actor has answered a few of those questions. We still don’t know his name and exact purpose, but Serkis did confirm he’s only playing one character, and that it was his unaltered voice in the trailer. Read more about the Andy Serkis Star Wars rumors, and their answers, below. Read More »

Jurassic World wrap photo

You’d think anyone who saw the first Jurassic Park would know better than to get too close to the raptors. And Chris Pratt has called Jurassic Park “my Star Wars,” so we can definitely assume he’s seen that kitchen scene a few times.

Yet here he is in the latest photo from Jurassic World, hanging out with to a raptor like it’s no biggie. Maybe when you’ve gone head-to-head with a tiny plastic despot and an evil alien overlord, a dinosaur seems less threatening. See the new Jurassic World photo after the jump.  Read More »

superman-man-of-steel-poster-3-header

So many Hollywood films are so fraught with destruction, the complaints directed at Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel were definitely a surprise. At the end of the film, Superman and Zod battle all across the city of Metropolis, creating apocalyptic chaos. It’s basically the same ending of every blockbuster film, with one difference: Superman is usually infallible. He doesn’t do anything that would endanger the public, like throwing his enemy through a skyscraper. Then again, he doesn’t kill people either, and he did that in the movie, too.

The argument was that, in the movie, Superman has only been “Superman” for a few days. He hadn’t fully created his moral code yet, or even explored the depths of his abilities. Then again, he still creates havoc that may or may not have killed thousands of people, which is very un-like the character.

This was, and has continued to be, a big debate since the film’s release. Many expected Snyder’s follow-up, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, to deal with this. We now know not only is that true, we know specifically how Batman v Superman will deal with the Man of Steel destruction complaints.

Joss Whedon Avengers 2 set interview

On June 12th 2014, I visited the London set of Avengers: Age of Ultron. In October, we posted our on set interviews with Mark Ruffalo and Robert Downey JrToday we’ve been given the green light to publish our interview with Avengers series director Joss Whedon. Here is a short snippet from Joss explaining why he decided to come back for the sequel:

I didn’t actually want to make the film necessarily. I was ragged from the first one, and so I just turned off my brain. I was like, do not think of cool ideas for the next one. Just get through this. But after a few months when they talked about, um… This is now something that makes sense in my life; do I have anything to say? And so my agent calls, I was in London, and he called me and said there’s a deal that’s worth talking about- time to start to think about whether there’s a movie. And I’m going, all right. I went to a pub and sat down with my notebook, and about forty-five minutes later, my notebook was filled. And I texted my agent “yup” and I have so many things to say and I was kind of surprised. It took me unaware. It was very beautiful.
