The Spotlight trailer features them all, and it’s footage that is pretty difficult to resist in the end. Read More »

Whatever you think of Jason Statham‘s movies, you can’t deny that Jason Statham works hard. He typically has at least a couple movies per year, and next year he has three. The first is Wild Card, a remake of the 1986 Burt Reynolds-starrer Heat. (Not to be confused with the 1995 Michael Mann movie Heat or 2013’s The Heat.)
Statham stars as a Las Vegas bodyguard who gets in hot water with a powerful mob boss. Michael Angarano, Sofia Vergara, Jason Alexander, Hope Davis, and Stanley Tucci also star. Watch the Wild Card trailer after the jump. Read More »

Below, you can watch a Transformers: Age of Extinction clip in which Mark Wahlberg does some heavy acting opposite a threatening Kelsey Grammer. Then check out two TV spots, one of which is a minute-long affair. Read More »
Mark Wahlberg introduced a new Japanese trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction and you can watch it below.
Director Michael Bay‘s fourth trip to the world of Transformers opens in the U.S. June 27 and Wahlberg stars as working-class man who has a chance encounter with an in-hiding Optimus Prime. That’ll set him, his daughter (Nicola Peltz) and her boyfriend (Jack Reynor) off on a massive adventure.
There are definitely one or two new shots here, but again this clip mostly focuses on the same money shots we’ve been seeing for four months. Beyond that, we still haven’t seen much footage of the humans interacting or further details on the plot. There’s plenty of Bayhem here though. Check out the new Transformers: Age of Extinction Japanese trailer below. Read More »
