Transformers 4 Mark Wahlberg Optimus

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 »

The Wind Rises

Briefly: Joseph Gordon-Levitt is having a big news day. He’s attached to adapt Neil Gaiman’s Sandman and he’s now officially been revealed as the lead voice in Disney’s English-language release of Hayao Miyazaki‘s final film, The Wind Rises.

Gordon-Levitt will voice Jiro Horikoshi, a talented engineer who spends his life building planes, only to realize he can’t fix everything. The actor will be joined by an impressive list of names including his Looper co-star Emily Blunt, her husband John Krasinski, as well as Martin Short, Stanley Tucci, Mandy Patinkin, William H. Macy, Werner Herzog (!), Mae Whitman, Jennifer Grey, Darren Criss, Elijah Wood and Ronan Farrow.

The English dubbed version will be released February 21. [USA Today]

Some Velvet Morning

There are some movie romances which are so swooningly sweet, they can make even the most jaded pragmatist believe in true love. And then there are movie romances so acrid, they can inspire even a happily coupled-up moviegoer to swear off love forever.

Some Velvet Morning seems to fall into the latter category, which shouldn’t come as a huge shock seeing as it was written and directed by In the Company of Men helmer Neil LaBute. Stanley Tucci and Alice Eve play two former lovers who come back into contact when he shows up on her doorstep years after their affair ended, declaring that he’s finally left his wife for her. Hit the jump to watch the trailer.

Hunger Games Catching Fire Header

The Hunger Games had a pretty massive cast to start with, but since the first film ended with (um, spoiler alert) a whole bunch of characters dead, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is reloading with tons of other new characters.

Though we’ve already seen most of them thanks to the posters, trailers, and stills, a new batch of images offers an even closer look at the fresh faces we’ll get to know this fall — as well as another peek at our favorite returning stars. Hit the jump to take it all in.

This second trailer for Thor Freudenthal‘s Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters features a cavalcade of beasties, and also a significant presence from Nathan Fillion, who plays a modernized version of the god Hermes. That’s probably enough to warrant a look from many potential audience members.

Those elements were present in the first trailer, along with plenty of material featuring returning cast (Logan Lerman, Brandon T Jackson, and Alexandra Daddario). But the intent here seems to be to sell the movie as a real spectacle. In that respect it succeeds pretty well. The series still has to truly establish itself as a proper successor to the Harry Potter films — and that may not be possible — but at least it appears to be able to make good on a promise to deliver colorful and dangerous monsters.

Stanley Tucci Joins ‘Transformers 4′

Stanley Tucci

The 3D IMAX camera wasn’t the only new addition to Transformers 4 announced at CinemaCon yesterday. Michael Bay also revealed that Stanley Tucci had boarded the cast, joining Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, and Jack Reynor. Tucci’s the kind of guy who’s good in a bad film and even better in a good one, so he’ll be a welcome presence. Hit the jump for more details.

One of the many YA series to get life on movie screens has been Percy Jackson and the Olympians. The first film in the series, The Lightning Thief, bowed in 2010 and introduced film audiences to the story’s modernized take on classic mythological characters.

Like many YA adaptations outside the Harry Potter and Twilight series, The Lightning Thief didn’t quite wow audiences. Unlike many stillborn series, however, this one is actually getting a sequel. Star Logan Lerman may quickly be aging out of the role, but he’s back for Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters, in which Percy, the half-human son of Poseidon, goes after the legendary Golden Fleece.

This chapter features Alexandra Daddario and Brandon T. Jackson returning to support Lerman’s hero, and we get to see Stanley Tucci as Dionysus. Oh, and Nathan Fillion plays Hermes, which might be enough to get people watching. Read More »
