transformers 5 video

Now that we’re five chapters deep into the Transformers series, it’s safe to say that just about everyone on the planet has an opinion on these movies. And while I’ve never been the biggest fan of what Michael Bay has done with these characters, I have to admire his audaciousness as a filmmaker. There are many, many things you can say about Bay’s filmography, but anyone who calls him lazy or derivative hasn’t been paying attention. Like him or not, he’s really one of a kind and his movies are made with a voice that is all his own.

And that’s why I’ve been digging the behind-the-scenes videos that have been trickling out of Transformers: The Last Knight, showcasing Bay in his element: commanding large armies of artists and technicians as part of a grand plan to orchestrate cinematic mayhem. The latest trio of videos are more of the same in the best possible way.

fast 8 oscar

While making the promotional rounds for Furious 7 back in 2015, Vin Diesel started saying some pretty nutty stuff about how the latest entry in the Fast and Furious series deserved to get a Best Picture nomination at the Academy Awards. And while the seventh entry in this increasingly insane action series ended up being a critical success and a box office smash, it was left high and dry during awards season…which surely surprised no one except Diesel.

It’s hard to tell how much of his Fast and Furious Oscar talk was just Diesel trying to snag some easy headlines or it was just him being an endearing and earnest oddball (his Facebook page certainly suggests the latter). But whatever the case, he’s breaking out some similar chatter for the upcoming Fast 8.

legion tv spot

At San Diego Comic-Con 2016, FX premiered a trailer for Legion, their upcoming series based on Marvel’s X-Men comics from Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley. If that didn’t have you excited for this new show, we’ve since learned that the show might connect with future X-Men movies, will likely feature an appearance from Professor Xavier and Flight of the Conchords star Jemaine Clement has joined the cast for a multiple-episode arc.

Now FX has released a new television spot for Legion that asks the question: Does David Haller know what he is?  Dan Stevens’ (The GuestDownton Abbey) character David Haller, a schizophrenic yet powerful telepathic and telekinetic mutant who may or may not be Professor X’s son. The new Legion tv spot focuses on Haller’s craziness. Watch it now, embedded after the jump.

If you’re a fan of J.J. Abrams, then maybe you’ve checked out some of the filmmaker’s audio commentaries. Abrams’ commentaries are about as breezy and as enjoyable as his films, but for whatever reason, he didn’t record one for the previous Star Wars: The Force Awakens home video release. The upcoming Collector’s Edition will, on the other hand, feature a commentary from the director.

Below, hear a SPOILER-heavy excerpt from The Force Awakens audio commentary.

Moana clip (Maui)

Disney’s Moana is inspired by many things, like the rich mythology of ancient Oceania and the irresistible charisma of Dwayne Johnson. The first Moana clip leans on both, as Maui (Johnson) meets Moana (Auli’i Cravalho) for the first time and teaches her how to make a proper introduction.
