Transformers The Last Knight reviews

Paramount Pictures held the embargo for Transformers: The Last Knight until 7pm EST today, which is the same time the first public screenings were scheduled in theaters across the country. That’s not a tactic the studio usually takes, but considering the critical beating they received with Baywatch not too long ago, I suppose it’s not too much of a surprise.

So will Michael Bay’s latest Transformers film fare any better with critics? Come on, you and I both already know the answer to that question. Join me below to read a selection of some newly-published Transformers The Last Knight reviews and see just how much critics despise this film.

Avatar sequels

A former Game of Thrones actress has booked a ticket from Westeros to Pandora. Oona Chaplin, who played Robb Stark’s wife Talisa on the HBO fantasy series, will join Sam Worthington (remember him?), Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Joel David Moore, and Cliff Curtis in James Cameron’s upcoming Avatar sequels. Either that, or this is just the latest development in Cameron’s ongoing, elaborate prank to convince the world that these sequels are really happening, and we’re all being Punk’d like crazy. Those are clearly the only two options here.

The Rock

Michael Bay directed three Transformers movies about Sam Witwicky, and two about Cade Yaeger, but only one about maybe his most likable action heroes, Stanley Goodspeed (Nicolas Cage) and John Patrick Mason (Sean Connery). Over 20 years after The Rock opened in theaters, sadly Bay isn’t attempting to reunite Cage and a retired Connery, but he did have an idea for how to get them back together. The Rock sequel would’ve picked up where the first movie left off, with Goodspeed and Carla (Vanessa Marcil) hitting the road with government secrets in hand.

Below, learn more about Bay’s idea for The Rock sequel.

edge of tomorrow sequel

Edge of Tomorrow is easily one of the best sci-fi films of the decade. But unfortunately it’s plagued by low box office numbers and an ending that undercut the rest of the movie. But hopefully the movie’s strong afterlife on home video and the promise of a sequel (whatever terrible name it’s saddled with) will fix both of these things.

Screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie, who is expected to be heavily involved in the sequel, promises that we’ll see the Edge of Tomorrow ending explained in the follow-up.

warcraft images

Despite being the most successful video game movie of all time, it doesn’t seem like Duncan Jones‘ film adaptation of the mega-popular game Warcraft is going to be getting a sequel – even though one was briefly teased by the movie’s official Chinese social media account last year. There’s still a tiny sliver of possibility, but in case Jones never gets the opportunity to tell his follow-up story, he told a group of fans last night about his plans for what his version of Warcraft 2 would have been about.

Cars 3

During my conversation with Cars 3 director Brian Fee last week, I brought up the question of another Cars film. If this movie is a hit and they decide to make a fourth installment, could Owen Wilson‘s Lightning McQeen take a back seat (pun intended) while another character becomes the focal point of the series? Here’s what the filmmaker said about the possibility of a Cars 4.

Batman Mask of the Phantasm Blu-ray

Following the release of Tim Burton’s Batman in 1989 and the sequel Batman Returns in 1992, Warner Bros. Pictures tried their hand at bringing the animated version of The Dark Knight to theaters with Batman: Mask of the Phantasm on Christmas Day in 1993.

As a continuation of Batman: The Animated Series, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year like Batman Returns, the animated film didn’t spark much interest at the box office, pulling in only $5.6 million in its entire domestic run. Still, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm has become a favorite among Batman fans, especially with all the love that they have for the animated series that inspired it.

For years, fans have wanted to get their hands on Batman: Mask of the Phantasm in high definition, but it hadn’t been made available. That will change later this year though as Warner Archive has just announced the animated movie will be releases on Blu-ray this summer. Find out more about the Batman Mask of the Phantasm Blu-ray after the jump. Read More »

Because everything needs to be explained to death nowadays, we’re getting Annabelle: Creation, the origin story of the possessed doll that made its debut in The Conjuring before getting its own spin-off in 2014.

Continuing to expand the mythology of the supernatural, paranormal activity investigated by Lorraine (Vera Farmiga) and Ed (Patrick Wilson) Warren, Annabelle: Creation shows us how this creepy doll came to be possessed by some kind of evil spirit, tricking a couple grief stricken by the loss of their daughter to transfer a demon into the old fashioned toy. In an attempt to pay for their mistake, they shelter a group of orphan girls, one of who becomes the next target for Annabelle.
