  • Michael Bay confirms 'Transformers: Age of Extinction' will launch a new trilogy

    Ready or not, here it comes. "Transformers: Age of Extinction", Michael Bay’s next film about the robots in disguise, is intended to be the first film in a new "Transformers" trilogy. That’s the word from Bay himself. “It’s kind of like a new "Transformers",” he told Entertainment Weekly. “We had three, the first trilogy, and this is going to be the next one.” It’s an interesting development, as the director originally intended to leave the "Transformers" films behind after 2011′s "Dark of the Moon". Bay says he won’t “necessarily” direct the fifth and sixth "Transformers" films, but that’s a softer stance than he’s issued in the past. In other "Transformers" news, a -new "Age of Extinction" TV spot has premiered. Check out the Autobot action and Decepticon destruction in the teaser below: "Transformers: Age of Extinction", starring Mark Wahlberg, hits theaters on »

  • Glee Will Time Jump—and Won't Be in New York—for Final Season

    Let the Glee mystery begin! Creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy has dropped quite the unexpected little bomb about the Fox hit's sixth and final season: It won't be New York-centric. It will jump forward in time. And it will directly involve only a handful of core characters—although Murphy insists that for the final year, "anybody who wants to come back can come back."  "Everything sort of builds to a head [in the current season's finale]," Murphy explained to a small group of reporters Monday. "I would say explosion is too harsh of a word, but something big happens and then the final season is the aftermath of that." Tonight's episode, »

  • Leonardo DiCaprio Sets Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s ‘The Revenant’ as Next Pic

    After taking his time in figuring out what his next film will be, Leonardo DiCaprio has decided to go with New Regency and Fox’s “The Revenant” as that next pic with Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu set to direct.

    DiCaprio and Inarritu have been attached to the project for awhile but could not find the time to fit it into their schedules. The idea is to get the film into production this fall.

    Pic is based on the Michael Punke novel centering on a 1820s frontiersman, who is on a path of vengeance against those who left him for dead after a bear mauling.

    Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin, Keith Redmon and David Kanter will produce along with Inarritu, Arnon Milchan and James Skotchdopole. The film will be fully financed by RatPac and Worldview Entertainment.

    DiCaprio, who is repped by Lbi Entertainment, is coming off a strong 2013 with hits such as »

  • Paul Walker’s Brothers to Help Fill in ‘Small Gaps’ in ‘Fast & Furious 7? Production

    In the wake of Paul Walker’s unexpected death in November, his brothers Cody and Caleb will step in for him and help finish some remaining shots for Universal’s “Fast & Furious 7.”

    According to a statement made on the film’s Facebook page on Tuesday, the two Walker brothers will help with some “remaining action” and other shots that were not completed before Paul Walker’s death. The statement reads that he had already shot his dramatic scenes and most of the action, which they called “among the strongest work of his career.”

    “Having them on set has made us all feel that Paul is with us too,” the statement on the film’s Facebook page reads.

    “We are just under a year away from the release of ‘Fast & Furious 7,’ and this film is the most important we’ve ever done together. It will allow the character of Brian O »

  • Mad Men Season 7 Premiere and predictions

    So Don Draper is back on Tv screens across America as of last night back to his ever self conflicted clash of emotions. Last nights episode of Mad Men was a farewell to the sixties and a waltz into the the seventies. As usual the colorful cast of Mad Men navigated its way through an episode full of drama and change. Don has gone from "The Man" to just plain old man, while Peggy who thought she'd rise like the phoenix without Don has come crashing down to the earth. I won't spoil too much for those who may have missed the shows premiere but let's say it's setting up the template for huge shocks and major changes.

    My prediction for this season and the end of this show are as follows:

    Roger: I think the playboy Roger's run will come to an end. He will realize the void he's tried to fill via drink and drugs is still vacant after much self exploration. Roger will try to become a father to his Son and a better father to his daughter. I think we see Roger finally hang up his bachelor hat and accept the fact he is no longer a young man.

    Peggy: I think Peggy leaves the advertising world entirely. She's been taking the punches as they come but it will all come to a head. She will end up taking her talents into another field that will allow her to find time to actually have a normal life and a relationship. I think we see Peggy get married prior to the finale of this show.

    Don: I don't think Don will fight to save this latest marriage, as i've never believed he and his toothy younger wife have ever been very compatible. I wouldn't be surprised to see Don back in Advertising but within another company, perhaps his own. There is a very good chance that Don and Betty find their way back to each other before the end of this season. An alternate theory for me is that Don finds a new woman one just as damaged as he and together they find peace within the other. I think Don's alcohol problems finally take their toll this season and we may see Don changing many aspects of his life including his lack of interest in his children's lives.

    Betty: I see Betty getting divorced this season, either via discovery of her current political husband having an affair or simply by growing tired of being a trophy wife. Perhaps Betty finally goes through a full break down in order to build herself anew. I do think before the series ends we will finally see Betty seeing the light and not liking how it's reflect who she has played this entire show. Possibly ends up back in the world of Don.

  • Hunger Games stomps competition at MTV Movie Awards

    For a night, at least, “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” “The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug” and “This is the End” got to be awards show darlings. Commercial hits, particularly those geared at audiences too young to legally drive or drink, were the big winners at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards. Let “12 Years a Slave” savor its Best Picture Oscar and “American Hustle” monopolize those critics best lists, “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” was the big winner at this year's honors. The blockbuster sequel nabbed three major awards, scoring Golden Popcorns for Best Movie as well as Best Female and Male Performances. »

  • Rosemary's Baby tv series news

    NBC has set a premiere date for the miniseries update of "Rosemary's Baby," marking a tight turnaround for the Ira Levin adaptation.  Production on "Rosemary's Baby" only began in January and only five months later, the four-hour telefilm will premiere on Sunday, May 11 and Thursday, May 15 airing from 9-11 p.m. on both nights.  Scott Abbott and James Wong wrote the script, which was directed by Oscar and Emmy nominee Agnieszka Holland. The new take on the 1967 suspense novel transplants the action to Paris, where a young married couple (Zoe Saldana and Patrick J. Adams) move into an apartment with a haunted past. When Rosemary gets pregnant, she begins to distrust the intentions of both her seemingly kindly neighbors and her seemingly devoted husband.  In addition to Saldana and Adams, "Rosemary's Baby" stars Jason Isaacs and Carole Bouquet. The May premiere date will make "Rosemary's Baby" eligible for Emmy consideration this year, »

  • The Incredibles, Ratatouille to be re-released in 3D

    Pixar is to re-release The Incredibles and Ratatouille in 3D.

    The animation studio is currently working on a 3D rework of the 2004 superhero film, while Ratatouille is expected to follow.

    Speaking at the 3D Creative Summit in London, Pixar's director of 3D production Josh Hollander told the audience: "Right now we're working on The Incredibles, which is a lot of fun in 3D. I'm not sure what the release strategy for it will be.

    "It's been an interesting challenge to work on technology because - while the film was released 10 years ago - the technology is even older as it took four years to make."

    He continued: "We have a version of Ratatouille, which works really well in 3D and we're trying to figure out exactly what the release strategy for that will be."

    Toy Story and Toy Story 2 have previously been re-released in 3D, as well as Finding Nemo and Monsters Inc. »

  • Lena Dunham said to be "Quitting Acting", millions rejoice

    Don't get us wrong we like Lena Dunham just not Lena Dunham the actress. Lena recently revealed in a vogue interview that she enjoys days where she doesn't act and thus may be taking more roles behind the scenes and frankly it may in the end benefit her shows. Dunham who brought us the smash hit "Girls" has sadly evolved the shows discussion around her on screen appearances and while she may be the lead actress the show has lost a bit of it's appeal because of it. Lena is a phenomenal talent but her acting annoys many, me included. Some have made much about her love of nudity but that's an irrelevant factor, she chews up scenes with major overacting. It really has started to come off as forced as well, perhaps the is some truth to her not enjoying the part of actress. Focusing on her writing is the best path for Ms. Dunham as she has recently revealed she has a few projects in the works perhaps being master of one domain instead of the dual role she currently plays will bring new life to her ever growing stale project.

  • Louie returns for Season 5 on May 5th

    After a 19-month hiatus, FX’s Emmy-winning show “Louie” will return on May 5 for a fourth season.

    The net will air two new back-to-back episodes every Monday for seven weeks. FX originally ordered 13 eps for the show’s grand return, but creator-star-writer-director-exec producer Louis C.K. surprised with a bonus 14th episode.

    FX Network’s CEO John Landgraf said the show’s lengthy break has only improved its quality.

    “Louis said he needed extra time between seasons three and four of his show because – even though Louie was the most critically acclaimed television comedy series in America – he needed to make it even better,” Landgraf said in a statement. “Based on the first three episodes we’ve seen, remarkably, he accomplished his goal.”

  • Captain America 3 to go head to head with Batman-Superman

    The mystery has been solved -- the untitled Marvel Studios tentpole that Warner Bros.Batman-Superman movie will go up against on May 6, 2016, is Captain America 3, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. That's the plan, anyway, creating the biggest superhero box office showdown in history (Marvel Studios and parent company Disney staked out the date first). Shooting schedules and post-production could always impact the current blueprint, however. Also, Marvel and Disney have a second untitled movie set to open that summer on July 8, so there is wiggle room. Marvel films have all but owned the first weekend

  • French Film Master Alain Resnais Dies

    Alain Resnais, a cinema pioneer and a leading light of the French New Wave, died Saturday in Paris, his longtime producer and friend Jean-Louis Livi said. He was 91.

    One of the most critically-aclaimed French helmers of all time, Resnais directed such arthouse masterpieces as “Hiroshima Mon Amour,”a flagship pic of the New Wave, which earned writer Marguerite Duras an Oscar nom for original screenplay in 1961, and “Last Year at Marienbad,” a major influence on such directors as David Lynch.

    Resnais, who began his career with a number of art documentaries and then broke through with the gripping 1955 “Night and Fog,” about the Jewish Holocaust in WWII, was one of the more intellectually rigorous members of the new wave of filmmakers who overturned the French film industry in the late ’50s.

    The French cinema world is mourning Resnais today as critics, industryites, festivals’ toppers and fans pay him homage.

  • 'Gravity' dominating crafts fields so far at the Oscars

    Going in to tonight's Oscars ceremony, it was a pretty foregone conclusion that Alfonso Cuarón's "Gravity" would gobble up a number of crafts categories. It has dominated each of the fields it has been nominated in thus far at the 86th annual Academy Awards, including the quartet of Best Film Editing, Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing and Best Visual Effects. Meanwhile, on his sixth nomination, celebrated director of photography Emmanuel Lubezki is finally an Oscar winner. He won the award for Best Cinematography for his work on the film. Lubezki has been Cuarón's Dp of choice for a number of years, and the lenser has picked up nominations for such films as "A Little Princess" and "Children of Men" over the years. Meanwhile, he's also developed a strong working relationship with visionary director Terrence Malick as of late. He was a favorite to win for "The Tree of Life »

  • Emmanuel Lubezki ('Gravity') finally wins Best Cinematography Oscar on 6th try

    Given that "Gravity" had swept the honors for lensing throughout the awards season -- including BAFTA, the American Society of Cinematographers and Critics' Choice -- it is not surprising that Emmanuel Lubezki won Best Cinematorgraphy at the Oscars Sunday. He had lost his previous five Oscar bids -- including for two other films with "Gravity" helmer Alfonso Cuaron ("A Little Princess," "Children of Men"), two with Terrence Malick ("The New World," "The Tree of Life"), and one with Tim Burton ("Sleepy Hollow"). Among those he bested was Roger Deakins who has earned a whopping 11 Oscar nominations in this category but has yet to win. This year, he was a contender for the gritty crime drama "Prisoners." -Break- Another contender, Bruno Debonnel, racked up his fourth loss with his bid for "Inside Llewyn Davis." It »

  • 'The Great Gatsby' and 'Dallas Buyers Club' win design Oscars

    The critics may have taken Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" to task when it was released last summer, but the film is having the last laugh after a nice box office haul and a few scattered wins on the awards circuit. Production and costume designer Catherine Martin won Oscars in both categories Sunday night for the film's opulent threads and sets. She pulled the same feat 12 years ago for her work on husband Luhrmann's "Moulin Rouge!" Martin spoke with HitFix earlier this year about her philosophy when approaching costumes for film. But she deferred their perceived success to the actors wearing them. "If you look at the best models in the world, or the actors that promote product, they're bringing something extra to the product," she said at the time. "It's not just, 'I'm slim, I'm beautiful.' It's actually pushing the envelope. It's selling the dream. It's allowing »

  • 'True Detective' Recap: Face Facts

    Last Sunday night, I gave True Detective a bad review. In return, it gave me nightmares.

    That night, my brain conjured up not one but two separate imaginary season finales in dream form. In one, Rust Cohle and Marty Hart tracked the killer conspiracy to an oily Louisiana politician (played, in the dream, by Deadwood veteran Zach Grenier, proving that my brain and True Detective's casting director have a similar attitude about raiding past great HBO dramas for talent). Content they'd gotten their man at last, they didn't notice the hulking, »
