The G.I. Joe franchise makes money, but it doesn’t make Michael Bay money. While we’ll see Transformers number five this summer, we continue to wait for a G.I. Joe 3, which may have been delayed due to scheduling. Director D.J. Caruso was attached to direct the film, but he moved on to make xXx: Return of Xander Cage. When Caruso was developing the Hasbro film, he had it end with the G.I. Joe and Transformers universes meeting.
Below, learn why Paramount didn’t go for the G.I. Joe Transformers crossover.

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, movie fans of all ages: welcome to the final week of the year, a period noteworthy for its relaxed atmosphere, chillier weather, and lingering holiday hangover. And also its lack of movie news. At the risk of getting a little too inside baseball, this is a week of flop sweat and desperation for movie bloggers as we scour the internet looking for just about anything to write about. How far will we go? How will we shame ourselves? Place your bets!
So on this slow news day, we bring to you a new photo of Henry Cavill and Dwanye Johnson, both of whom play roles in Warner Bros.’ DC superhero movie universe. Consider this a “choose your own adventure” bit of movie news and treat this as either two charismatic, easy-on-the-eyes gentleman sharing a moment or as Definitive Proof That Superman And Black Adam Will Battle One Another In A Future Movie.

Next spring, blockbuster summer kicks off early again thanks to the arrival of Fast and Furious 8. Actually, the movie is now officially titled The Fate of the Furious, a new title scheme going right along with the unpredictable insanity that this franchise has come to deliver in recent years. What began as a franchise about street-racing and undercover cops has turned into a blockbuster sensation with unbelievable heists, incredible action, bitter rivalries and a close bond of family. However, that last part is about to be shake to its very core.
See what we’re talking about in the first The Fate of the Furious trailer after the jump. Read More »
This weekend will bring another blockbuster trailer debut, this time for the eighth installment of the Fast and Furious franchise. It’s hard to believe that we’ve come this far with Vin Diesel and the rest of the crew, but here we are. So far we’ve been calling the film Fast 8, but the movie has just gotten a brand new title, and it’s both kinda silly, but still pretty cool. The sequel will be called The Fate of the Furious, but sadly not The F8 of the Furious.
In addition to the new title announcement, the first footage from the sequel has just debuted online before the full trailer arrives sometime on Sunday. It has all the insane action you’d expect, but this time in Cuba and the bitter cold of Iceland. Some of this action looks like Mad Max: Fury Road on ice, and that’s just awesome.

Paramount Pictures has dropped the first trailer for Baywatch, the big-screen adaptation of the 1990s TV series about scantily clad hotties running in slow motion. But this isn’t that Baywatch. Yes, there are still super attractive people hanging out on a beach in skimpy swimwear. But this one is much more in the vein of 21 Jump Street the movie, starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron as a pair of mismatched lifeguards who set out to “restore the Baywatch brand.” Ha ha, get it?
Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Jon Bass, and Ilfenesh Hadera play some of the other lifeguards surrounding them, and Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) directs. Watch the first Baywatch trailer below.

Adapting a video game with no story must be simultaneously freeing and terrifying, a chance to use a few basic building blocks to tell the story you want to tell while also having no established foundation to build upon. Maybe that’s why it has taken five years for a movie based on the 1986 arcade semi-classic Rampage to come together – giant monsters destroying cities is an inherently cinematic concept, but there is literally no story present here beyond “giant beasts punch skyscrapers into dust.”
But Rampage is happening now and the ever-busy Dwayne Johnson is set to star, reuniting with his San Andreas director Brad Peyton. While production on the video game adaptation isn’t set to begin until next year, Peyton is already answering questions about film. Specifically, how is this going to be a film at all?

If you didn’t catch Moana over the holiday weekend, you’re missing out on one of the best movies Walt Disney Animation has ever made. It’s an outstanding adventure full of gorgeous animation, a powerful story about identity with a strong female character at its center who doesn’t need romance to have a complete story.
But one of the best elements of Moana is the soundtrack of original songs crafted by Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, composer Mark Mancina and South Pacific fusion musician Opetaia Foa’i. And if you need any more convincing to see Moana, or you just want to watch one of the most fun musical numbers from the movie again and again, we have good news. The entire musical sequence where Dwayne Johnson‘s demigod character Maui sings the song “You’re Welcome,” has been made available to watch online.

By meshing their traditional magic and narrative tropes with a stunning change of scenery and rich, exotic culture that has never been featured so prominently or respectfully in family film, Disney has crafted a dazzling adventure that the whole family can enjoy.
