Paramount has released three new Transformers: Age of Extinction images.  Mark Wahlberg plays a burgeoning inventor and family man who runs into trouble when he accidentally discovers a beat-up Transformer.  Judging from these images, he’s equipped to deal with these problems because he’s Mark Wahlberg, super-ripped, and has a swordgun.

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

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.

Paramount Pictures has released a new poster for director Michael Bay’s sure-to-be-explosive sequel Transformers: Age of Extinction, and it pits Mark Wahlberg in great peril.  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.  As can be gleaned in this new poster, Wahlberg and his daughter (played by Nicola Peltz) find themselves in a dire situation when a ginormous ship appears above their home.  Don’t you just hate it when a giant robot spaceship hovers over your nice farmhouse and ruins the rest of your day?

Hit the jump to check out the new poster, and if you missed Steve’s video interviews with the cast from CinemaCon, be sure to watch his Wahlberg interview and Peltz/Jack Reynor interviewTransformers: Age of Extinction opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on June 27th.

Mark Wahlberg Talks TRANSFORMERS 4, Rupert Wyatt’s THE GAMBLER, Peter Berg’s AMERICAN DESPERADO, William Monahan’s MOJAVE, and More

Just a short time ago in Las Vegas, I landed a great video interview with Mark Wahlberg on the red carpet before Paramount’s presentation at CinemaCon.  During the interview Wahlberg talked about making Transformers: Age of Extinction, the action sequences, working for director Michael Bay on a big budget summer movie versus a smaller film like Pain & GainRupert Wyatt’s The Gambler, Peter Berg’s American DesperadoWilliam Monahan’s Mojave, and the New England Patriots (we’re both fans of the team).

The big news is that Wahlberg revealed American Desperados will be shooting this September and he has a small role in Monahan’s Mojave (which hadn’t been revealed until tonight).  For those unfamiliar with the story for American Desperado, it’s based on a series of interviews between Generation Kill author/journalist Evan Wright and super-criminal Jon Roberts, who was the focus of the documentary Cocaine Cowboys.  Roberts’ life story can be filed under “stranger than fiction,” as he recounts being born into Mafia royalty, running guns for the CIA, smuggling cocaine for the Medellin cartel, and brushing elbows with the likes of Richard Pryor and Jimi Hendrix.  Hit the jump for the interview.

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 Poster for TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION Features Mark Wahlberg Wielding a Swordgun

by     Posted 52 days ago

Paramount has released the first poster for Transformers: Age of Extinction, and when paired with the Super Bowl spot and the new trailer preview, this movie is going to be insane.  Sure, it’s going to be dumber than a stump and have mind-blowing set piece, but on a conceptual level, this looks like the nuttiest Transformers yet.  This poster has Mark Wahlberg wearing a confused expression, and perhaps his character is confused because he’s wielding a swordgun.  Someone dropped something out of Final Fantasy VIII, put in the hands of a movie star, and it’s going to be in one of the biggest blockbusters of the year.  The trigger appears to be a tooth for god’s sake.  The kicker is the tagline: “The rules have changed”, which is news to me because I was unaware the Transformers series even had rules.

Hit the jump to check out the poster, and come back for a new trailer and more posters this week.  The film also stars Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Kelsey Grammer, Stanley Tucci, T.J. Miller, Titus Welliver, Han Geng, Sophia Myles, and Li BingbingTransformers: Age of Extinction opens June 27th.

TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION Trailer Preview; Full Trailer Debuts Tuesday

by     Posted 52 days ago

Fans eager to see how director Michael Bay plans to “reboot” his own franchise will want to keep an eye on this space tomorrow.  The full trailer for Bay’s action sequel Transformers: Age of Extinction will debut on Tuesday, but today Paramount has released a preview with a few bits of new footage.  We still know very little about the film other than the fact that none of the characters from the previous three Transformers films return and Mark Wahlberg takes on leading man duties; oh, and there are Dinobots.  I wasn’t over the moon about the Super Bowl spot for the film, but I’m curious to see what Bay has done to retool the franchise with this fourth installment.  Is the tone the same as the first three movies?  Does the primary setting remain in the U.S.?  Hopefully we’ll have a better idea of what to expect when the new trailer hits tomorrow.

The Critics’ Choice Movie Awards were announced tonight, and 12 Years a Slave took home Best Picture.  The Critics’ Choice Awards have lined up with the Oscars in six of the last seven Best Pictures, but it’s worth noting that the Broadcast Film Critics Association spread the wealth around with genre awards to the other Oscar favorites, Gravity (Best Sci-Fi/Horror Movie) and American Hustle (Best Comedy).  Lone Survivor only managed two Oscar nominations for the sound categories, but found some love here as the Best Action Movie.

HIGHWAY TO HEAVEN Reboot in Development at A&E; Mark Wahlberg on to Executive Produce

highway-to-heaven-reboot-slice

Highway to Heaven is returning to television if executive producer Mark Wahlberg has anything to say about it.  For those of you who didn’t have a chance to watch this delightful series during its late 80s run on NBC, it followed Jonathan Smith (Michael Landon), an angel on probation given assignments by God to help troubled humans overcome their difficulties.  Assisting him on Earth was his human companion, Mark Gordon (Victor French), whose cynical personality often clashed with Jonathan’s to humorous effect.  A&E’s planned reboot will have an edgier take (of course) and will be penned by Hell on Wheels showrunner, John Wirth.  Hit the jump for more.

Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch and Eric Bana Talk LONE SURVIVOR, Working with Real Navy SEALs, and More

It’s tough enough to perform in a film loaded with heart, military logistics, and action, but in Lone Survivor, Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch and Eric Bana were also tasked with delivering an authentic and admirable representation of real Navy SEALs who lost their lives in the hills of Afghanistan during a devastating mid-mission attack.

With the film now playing in limited release and its January 10th nationwide expansion approaching, all four actors sat down for a press conference in New York City to talk about working with the sole survivor of the real-life ambush, Marcus Luttrell, the connections they built with members of the SEAL community, the pressure to honor their sacrifice, and more. Hit the jump for the full discussion.

LONE SURVIVOR Review

by     Posted 121 days ago

lone-survivor-mark-wahlberg-taylor-kitsch-slice

After watching Battleship and Lone Survivor, I have no doubt that director Peter Berg has a deep and earnest respect for America’s military.  While one movie is a silly blockbuster and the other is based on a true-story tragedy, they both celebrate the honor and dedication of men and women in uniform.  Where I take issue with Berg is how he expresses his adoration of the troops.  In Battleship, a movie with aliens, spaceships, and explosive pegs, throwing in an appreciation of sailors is a nice sentiment.  In Lone Survivor, appreciation isn’t a sentiment; it’s a cause.  Berg’s desire to honor the Navy SEALs who lost their lives on a FUBAR mission is admirable, but the film’s heavy emphasis on action makes physical endurance appear more commendable than deeds and intentions.

Universal Pictures has released some new images from director Peter Berg’s (The Kingdom) adaptation of the non-fiction book Lone Survivor.  The film tells the story of four Navy SEALs on an ill-fated covert mission who try to neutralize a high-level Taliban operative, but are ambushed by enemy forces in the Hindu Kush region of Afghanistan.  The film has drawn positive responses from early screenings, and Berg has more than proven himself to be a skilled action director.  Hopefully the dramatic character interplay is on point here as well.

Hit the jump to check out the new images.  The film stars Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster, Eric Bana, Alexander Ludwig, Ali Suliman, and Rohan ChandLone Survivor opens in limited release on December 27th before going wide on January 10th.

Producer Randall Emmett Aiming to Make 2 GUNS Sequel Called 3 GUNS

Even though 2 Guns didn’t approach its August release as a top priority of summer 2013, it still managed to open at #1 with a $27.1 million domestic debut and then go on to take a total of $131.9 million worldwide, earning itself some sequel talk.

The film featured Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg as Robert Trench and Michael Stigman, two criminals out to make a killing by stealing big money from a drug lord – or so they think. Turns out, Trench is really a DEA agent and Stigman is a U.S. Navy intelligence officer and both are working the same case from different angles. When their attempt to infiltrate a Mexican drug cartel goes awry, they’re both renounced by their respective agencies and left to fend for themselves, forcing them to work together.

2 GUNS Blu-ray Review

by     Posted 143 days ago

2-guns-slice

2 Guns partners Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington in a buddy cop-esque action comedy.  Considering the talent involved, it goes more for the action that jokes, but with a strong supporting cast and enough twists and turns to keep things interesting, it proves to be one of the most entertaining (albeit fairly dumb) summer action movies of the year.  My review of 2 Guns follows after the jump.
