Apparently during the production, which unfolded in the midst of the pandemic, the crew was ignoring important safety protocols to help control the spread of coronavirus. Was it worth the trouble? Well, if the first wave of reviews is to be believed, the answer is a mostly resounding “no.” Read More »

Producer Michael Bay‘s pandemic thriller Songbird made headlines for being the first major film to be made during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in Los Angeles. Then it made headlines again with reports that the production was not following COVID safety protocols. And yet again, Songbird made headlines for the negative online buzz around its trailer, which showed the films — let’s say ill-advised — apocalyptic vision of the pandemic. But in perhaps the most positive piece of news, and for those nervous about going to see movies amid surging COVID-19 cases, Songbird has set its VOD release for this December.

Ambulance Jake Gyllenhaal

Jake Gyllenhaal wants in on some Bayhem so he’s in talks to star in Ambulance, the latest from Michael Bay. The script for the film, penned by Chris Fedak, has actually been kicking around for a while. At one point, Big Bad Wolves directors Navot Papushado & Aharon Keshales were attached to helm. But now, Bay has ahold of it. While the latest news about Gyllenhaal possibly joining the cast says that the plot is under wraps, previous reports reveal that Fedak’s script is a remake of the 2005 Danish film Ambulancen, which followed two brothers who use an ambulance as their getaway vehicle following a robbery.

Songbird made headlines for being the first film made during the COVID-19 outbreak in Los Angeles.

That order was eventually lifted, but later, another story broke accusing the film of not following COVID safety protocols. And now…it’s here.

The Rock Honest Trailer

It’s hard to believe, but there was a time that Michael Bay made great action movies. Sure, they’re still several movies crammed into one unnecessarily long story, and they still don’t make a lot of sense, but Bay’s earliest movies have some truly incredibly directed action sequences and characters you love to see causing chaos. If you need any evidence of that, just take a look back at The Rock with Honest Trailers. The cavalcade of character actors alone is enough to make this an all-timer. Read More »

Michael Bay’s pandemic thriller Songbird may have trouble taking flight. The Songbird production has been hit by a “do not work” order from SAG-AFTRA, which is warning its members that they could be disciplined if they take an acting job on the film. The order comes a little more than a month after it was reported that Songbird filmmakers had screened their production plans by the guilds.

UPDATE: Since this story broke, SAG-AFTRA has rescinded the “do not work” order for Songbird. Union members are free to work on this production effective immediately. Our original story from July 3 follows below.
