Transformers: Age Of Extinction Footage Likely To Debut During Super Bowl
Iíll be very excited to see what Bay has to show. We know next to nothing about this sequel, as itís a departure from the trilogy Bay helped launch back in 2007. No Shia LaBeouf. No Megan Fox. No John Turturro getting ďurinatedĒ on by an Autobot.
Michael Bay Attacked With An Air Conditioner On Transformers 4 Set
Actually, assault-with-a-deadly-air-conditioner sounds like a perfect tactic in a Michael Bay movie like Pain & Gain or Bad Boys II, but it was an unplanned part of his real life on the set of Transformers: Age of Extinction, which is currently filming in Hong Kong
Michael Bay Smiles At Explosions Behind The Scenes Of Transformers: Age Of Extinction
Whether you love or loathe the director behind such unapologetic action spectacles as Bad Boys, The Rock, Armageddon and the Transformers threequel, can you help but smile at the sheer joy this moviemaker gets at blowing shit up for the sake of cinema?
Transformers 4 Is A Deeply Chinese Movie, Apparently
The next Transformers movie is currently filming in China, in part, because theyíve run out of things to destroy in America, and in larger part because thereís a lot of money to be made there. Whatís surprising is that not only are they shooting there, apparently the movieís going to be sort of about China too.
Transformers 4 Reveals Another New Vehicle
Michael Bay has been slowly but surely teasing glimpses of the pre-transformed Transformers 4 automobiles for our viewing pleasure. Car enthusiasts and Transformers fans alike were given the opportunity to look at Bumblebee (a highly-modified vintage 1967 Camaro SS), Optimus Prime covered in flames, and two of the new characters (a Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse and a C7 Corvette Stingray). And today Bay has given us another new look.
Michael Bay Unveils The New Optimus Prime In Truck Form
Really, from grill to hood to headlights to flame design, everything about the new truck is updated and flashier, trading edges for a more rounded look. Iím just assuming the other side of the cam isnít painted green and orange.
Michael Bay Reveals Mark Wahlberg's Co-Star For Transformers 4
Ladies and gentlemen, meet the new Shia LaBeouf! OK, not exactly, but Michael Bay has confirmed on his blog that young actor Jack Reynor has been cast to act opposite Mark Wahlberg in the upcoming Transformers 4.
Michael Bay Picks A Fight With Hugo Weaving For Calling Megatron Role 'Meaningless'
On some level, sure, Michael Bay is right-- actors have pretty cushy jobs, and any complaining they do ought to be taken with a massive grain of salt and recognition that they're doing OK. But that's not really what Weaving was doing here. He was stating some basic facts about a voiceover job that didn't challenge him that much and wasn't that meaningful
Pentagon Bails On The Avengers Because The Plot Wasn't Realistic
Wait, doesnít the military regularly consult with Michael Bay on the Transformers films? So the idea of a Decepticon being buried on the moon is more plausible then the comic-inspired mayhem in Whedonís film?
Michael Bay Will Return To Direct Transformers 4
As you can tell it's still far, far too early to speculate on the story for a new film, or even which stars would be back for a new film-- though I'm guessing that the franchise is as finished with Shia LaBeouf as he seems with them, so I'd at least count on a new lead
Transformers Super Bowl Teaser Has A Warning From Optimus Prime
Yes, that is in fact an ad for a theme park ride, specifically "Transformers The Ride 3D," which bows at Universal Studios Hollywood in May. When the full spot airs during the Super Bowl it will point you to the website Prepare For Battle, which hosts another video, this one looking a whole lot like the video you'll watch when waiting in line for the ride at Universal Studios
Check Out The Trailer For Universal Studios' Transformers: The Ride 3D
I'm no fan of Michael Bay's Transformers movies. In fact, I'd go so far as to say I'm an opponent of Michael Bay's Transformers movies, sent back from the future to prevent mankind's destruction via rock-stupid summer blockbusters. Still, while I may decry the Transformers films for dry-humping the lowest common denominator, there's no question that they're damned impressive from a visual standpoint.
New Battleship Trailer: It's Even More Like Transformers Than You Thought
Everything from that opening text-- "From Hasbro, the company that brought you Transformers"-- to the metallic booming effects to the little ball alien that throws out a tentacle and rips through a plane feels so, so much like a Transformers movie. Then there's Brooklyn Decker as your random hottie
People's Choice 2012 Nominations Go To Harry Potter, Pirates, Bridesmaids, And The Help
The people have voted and the nominations for Peopleís Choice Awards 2012 are in. Unsurprisingly, movie fans love Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Transformers. And while Bridesmaids was recognized in numerous categories, the people seem to have disregarded Melissa McCarthy in the Favorite Female Comedy Actress.
Transformers 4 And 5 Could Shoot Back-To-Back, But Without Shia LaBeouf
The studio is apparently thinking of replacing him with Jason Statham, which is hilarious, but there's no offer yet so don't get your hopes up. And even though LaBeouf is out, Michael Bay hasn't quite let go of the dream-- sources say that Bay might stick around as an executive producer (which we knew) as well as a director
