Michael Bay will continue to blow shit up for the foreseeable future thanks to a new multiyear first-look deal with Sony. The deal will allow Bay to produce both film and TV projects. That includes Black Five, an ensemble drama Bay will direct from a script by Ehren Kruger. Bay has a history with Sony, having made his feature directorial debut there with Bad Boys.

The Bad Boys movies aren’t just Michael Bay movies—they are the definitive Michael Bay movies. The first installment marked Bay’s film debut, which he now thinks looks like an indie compared to his subsequent work, and the sequel was the movie that showcased Michael Bay in all his most creative and insipid ways. The sequel showed Bay’s true self as an artist, the full id of his sensibilities. Through the beloved and scolded sequel’s aesthetic, its sense of humor, and its utter disregard for both human life and more broadly, the mere concept that “less is more.” Bay proudly proclaims for two and a half self-indulgent hours, “Here… I … am.”

In a little Bad Boys video round-up, we’ve got the dynamic duo attending a therapy session in character as Mike Lowery and Marcus Burnett, their Hollywood alter egos going shopping for some sweet kicks, and a Bad Boys Honest Trailer taking us all the way back to the start.

Netflix has just released a new trailer for 6 Underground, the new action film starring Ryan Reynolds that debuts on the streaming service later this week.

If you thought we were going to escape 2019 without a new Michael Bay movie, think again. Bay is back, baby! And he’s got a new Netflix movie arriving in less than a month! 6 Underground stars Ryan Reynolds as the leader of a team of elite operatives. There’s a new featurette/trailer that shows off footage from the film, and it’s full of the typical Bayhem. But friends, I come to you today not to talk about that video. Instead, I would like to draw your attention to the official 6 Underground poster, which may just be the worst movie poster ever created.

Michael Bay has been very busy since giving us one of the worst installments in the Transformers franchise. The director went from Los Angeles to Italy to the United Arab Emirates to shoot the action movie starring Ryan Reynolds, and now he’s delivered the first trailer for 6 Underground, a movie about six people who form a vigilante squad after faking their deaths, all so they can take down some of the most notorious criminals at large. If they simply called this movie 6 Batmans, they’d probably make $6 billion.
Anyway, watch the first 6 Underground trailer below. Read More »
Michael Bay took to Instagram to post a video of himself looking, and sounding, very sleepy, all in the name of teasing his upcoming Six Underground trailer. You get about a split-second look of someone (maybe Ryan Reynolds?) jumping off a building, but mostly you just get Bay in his editing suite/screening room, hyping up the Bayhem to come. Read More »

A serious, timely question: Who on Earth doesn’t have love for William Fichtner? The actor brings it every time, no matter the size of the role – which, as he recently told us, is not something he cares about. Whether he’s one of the stars or only on screen for a scene or two, he always leaves an impression. Now, he’s one of the leads of Mark Steven Johnson‘s playful heist movie Finding Steve McQueen, a true story about an eclectic gang of criminals stealing Richard Nixon’s illegal campaign contributions.
Throughout his career, in addition to showing a wide range in a wide variety of films and TV shows, he’s starred in movies that are already proving to stand the test of time. The Dark Knight, Go, Black Hawk Down, and the works of Michael Bay: those movies aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. Recently, we spoke with Fichtner about his experiences on those films and his collaborations with Christopher Nolan, Michael Bay, Sir Ridley Scott, and others.
Below, take a trip down memory lane with the one and only William Fichtner.

Over the last 10 years, actor James Badge Dale has built himself one mighty impressive resume. Badge Dale’s career began when he was a kid in 1990 with a role in an adaptation of Lord of the Flies, but after that, and years after playing hockey and suffering an injury, he went to the theater where he found his passion for acting. Since his theater days, he’s delivered consistently high quality of performances for some of the best filmmakers around.
Now, he’s the lead in The Standoff at Sparrow Creek – a tense mystery mostly set in one location about a militia trying to discover which one of their own was behind a shooting at a police funeral. As a former cop turned militia man, Badge Dale brings a real sense of urgency to writer-director Henry Dunham‘s propulsive thriller. When speaking with the actor about the film, he not only told us about his experience on his latest movie, but some of his past jobs as well, from The Departed to The Pacific to working with Michael Bay and more.
