New TV Spot for TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION Starring Mark Wahlberg

by     Posted 6 days ago


Paramount has released a new TV spot for Transformers: Age of Extinction.  Mark Wahlberg plays a burgeoning inventor and family man who runs into trouble when he accidentally discovers a beat-up Transformer.  Age of Extinction takes place a considerable time after the events of Dark of the Moon, and the U.S. Government now feels that there is no use for Transformers here on Earth.  This new clip is mostly stuff we saw in the trailer, but I think that even from this 30-second spot, I have a good idea of the plot: one giant robot will hit another giant robot; people scatter in terror.

Hit the jump to check out the Transformers: Age of Extinction TV spot.  The film also stars Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Kelsey Grammer, Stanley Tucci, T.J. Miller, Titus Welliver, Han Geng, Sophia Myles, and Li Bingbing. Transformers: Age of Extinction opens June 27th.

Watch a Roll Call for THE EXPENDABLES 3 Starring Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and a Bunch of Other Tough Guys

by     Posted 16 days ago


Lionsgate has released a roll call/teaser trailer for The Expendables 3.  While this footage bills this outing as the “last” time, I have trouble believing that.  But that’s a concern for the future.  Right now, this teaser provides the first footage from the movie (explosions!), and mostly provides a roll call of the many, many tough guys (and gal) populating the movie.  But that’s fine since The Expendables movies are more about a stacked cast than anything else.

Hopefully you’ve been enjoying the bounty of media goodies from Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction, because we’ve got more for you!  I’m sure by now you checked out the recently released trailer, but if the action flew by too fast for you, we’ve gone ahead and remedied that with a collection of screencaps.  This is possibly the most American movie that Bay’s ever made, and if you doubt me, take a look at the images and drink every time you see the American flag* (and then immediately call the doctor because you’re going to be near death).  This movie couldn’t be more American if it ended with the Washington Monument transforming into a giant robotic Uncle Sam who skewers the Decepticons before baking our heroes a mean apple pie.

New Trailer for TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION Starring Mark Wahlberg

by     Posted 46 days ago


Paramount Pictures has released a new full-length trailer for director Michael Bay‘s action sequel Transformers: Age of Extinction.  The film takes place some time after the events of the third Transformers pic, Dark of the Moon, and follows an entirely different set of characters.  Mark Wahlberg leads the cast as a mechanic and family man who starts working on what he believes to be a junked truck, only to discover that it’s actually a battle-wounded Transformer.  The main takeaway from this trailer is that Age of Extinction is, for all intents and purposes, a reboot of the Transformers franchise.  Gone are the quips and jokes from a young know-it-all from the first three films, and in their stead, Bay considers a post-war world in which Transformers are no longer needed; the title actually appears to be referring to the main Transformers themselves, not exclusively the Dinobots.  This is still a Michael Bay tentpole, though, so there’s plenty of the director’s signature action on display, but the expanded international scope of the pic is particularly promising and I’m hoping the director has found a tone that sets Age of Extinction apart.

First Teaser Trailer for THE EXPENDABLES 3

by     Posted 121 days ago


Lionsgate has released a teaser trailer for director Patrick Hughes’ action sequel The Expendables 3.  The follow-up finds Sylvester Stallone’s Barney Ross and his Expendables crew squaring off against Ross’ old partner Conrad Stonebanks, played by Mel Gibson.  There’s no hint of that story in this first teaser trailer as the cast is simply too large to give everyone screentime in the time allotted.  Taking that into account, everyone and their mother is wheeled out to strike an action pose in what’s essentially a cast introduction.

Hit the jump to watch the teaser trailer.  The film also stars Wesley Snipes, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kelsey Grammer, Antonio Banderas, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Kellan Lutz, Ronda Rousey, Victor Ortiz, and Glen PowellThe Expendables 3 opens on August 15, 2014.

The first theatrical trailer for the upcoming animated film Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return (previously titled Dorothy of Oz) has been released online.  Based on the 1989 novel Dorothy of Oz, a sequel to Frank L. Baum’s original The Wizard of Oz, the new film revolves around Dorothy (Lea Michele) returning to the Land of Oz, only to find that the kingdom and its inhabitants are in grave danger from a wicked Jester (Martin Short).  The pic looks more like a direct-to-DVD sequel than a major theatrical release, but youngsters will probably enjoy the whimsical tone and goofy characters.  It’s a far cry from the oddly dark Oz sequel that terrorized me as a child, Return to Oz.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also features the voices of Kelsey Grammer, Dan Akyroyd, Jim Belushi, Megan Hilty, Hugh Dancy, Oliver Platt, Bernadette Peters, and Patrick StewartLegends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return opens on May 9, 2014.

Filming is already underway in Bulgaria on the action sequel The Expendables 3, but there’s still one more actor to add to the cast.  Deadline reports that Kelsey Grammer is signing on to the pic to play Bonaparte, an ex-mercenary who aids the titular aging heroes in their mission.  This is the part that was initially earmarked for Nicolas Cage, but now Grammer will be handling the role.  This is the second franchise film in a row for the Frasier actor, as he recently wrapped Michael Bay’s upcoming Transformers 4.

The Expendables 3 cast now includes Sylvester Stallone, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Jason Statham, Terry Crews, Antonio Banderas, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, and Wesley Snipes.  Directed by Patrick Hughes, The Expendables 3 is slated to open in theaters on August 15, 2014.  Hit the jump for casting news regarding the “Simon Pegg assassin” movie Kill Me Three Times.

Kelsey Grammer Cast as TRANSFORMERS 4 Villain

by     Posted 353 days ago


Kelsey Grammer (Frasier) is more than meets the eye as the new – and quite human – antagonist for Michael Bay’s Transformers 4.  Not too much is known about his character except that he’ll be playing counter-intelligence operative Harold Attinger – a flesh-and-blood baddie – and not a voice of any villainous Decepticons.  Grammer will join Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Nicola Peltz and Jack Reynor in a story that centers on “a group of powerful, ingenious businessman and scientists [who] attempt to learn from past Transformer incursions and push the boundaries of technology beyond what they can control—all while an ancient, powerful Transformer menace sets Earth in his crosshairs.”  Transformers 4 opens June 27, 2014.  Hit the jump for more.

First Teaser Trailer for DOROTHY OF OZ Featuring the Voices of Lea Michele and Patrick Stewart

The first trailer for the animated feature Dorothy of Oz has been released.  The CG-animated musical centers on Dorothy (Lea Michele) returning to the Land of Oz, only to find that the kingdom and its inhabitants are in grave danger from a wicked Jester (Martin Short).  The low-budget film comes from the studio Summertime Entertainment, and the visuals are sadly a far cry from Pixar or DreamWorks Animation.  That said, the colorfulness and strange cast of characters would have been a big pull for me as a kid so maybe this will play better to younger audiences.  The film is almost reminiscent of the dark and twisted unofficial sequel Return to Oz, but with decidedly more singing/Broadway stars.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The voice cast also includes Dan Aykroyd, Kelsey Grammer, Patrick Stewart, James Belushi, Bernadette Peters, Hugh Dancy, Megan Hilty, and Oliver PlattDorothy of Oz will open sometime in 2013.

TV News: Robert Smigel and Rob Riggle Developing Comedy at CBS; Starz Grabs BOSS from Kelsey Grammer and Gus Van Sant

by     Posted 3 years, 152 days ago


For the past two development seasons for television, CBS has tried to get former Daily Show correspondent Rob Riggle a successful starring vehicle. It looks like the network will try again as Deadline reports Saturday Night Live veteran writer Robert Smigel (who made a name for himself with the animated TV Funhouse segments) is working with Riggle for a currently untitled half hour comedy. The series would see Riggle as a gregarious guy who winds up as a real estate agent working for the nerd he made fun of in high school. Both Smigel and Riggle are executive producing along with famed producers and talent managers Peter Principato and Paul Young. The network has made finding a project for Riggle a high priority, so hopefully this one works out for him
