‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ Review: The Same Old, Same Old, Just More of It

This far into the Transformer series of films by Michael Bay you know exactly what you’re going to get, so you’re either going to see Transformers: Age of Extinction and enjoy it, see it and hate watch it, or just ignore its passing and seeing something more engaging to your personal taste at the multiplex. If I could describe Age of Extinction in two words, they would be “too much,” too much exposition, too much action, too much plot, too much Bay-hem… And although it’s not as noticeable, too much silliness mixed in with all the hardcore action. In other words, it’s everything you like, or hate, already about Transformers films, just more of it. (more…)

Wahlberg

The childlike wonder with which Mark Wahlberg delivers the declaration “GUYS, I THINK WE JUST FOUND A TRANSFORMER!” will go down in the annals of history as maybe one of the best line readings EVER. Despite having hated all of Michael Bay’s previous Transformers motion pictures, my ticket for Terry Hoytes v. Robots is 100% sold (fuck Batman v. Superman – this is the really real cinematic showdown). Now there’s an international trailer (complete with Chinese (?) subtitles) to sell the remaining few of you who weren’t already down with this clash of titans. (more…)

He’s the most interesting dog in the world. At least that’s what this Mr. Peabody & Sherman trailer would have you think, but is he? He does stack up pretty well when compared to his animated canine counterparts, but is there another dog that can touch Mr Peabody? (more…)

First Production Stills for ‘Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters’

- 03-22-13Film Posted by Mark Poynter

There’s new production stills from director Thor Freudenthal‘s Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters on the Internet. There’s not been a lot of news about the sequel lately, eight out of ten people would most likely be surprised that a sequel was even being made. The trilogy was already planned though before the first movie even started production.

We should see the first trailer some time next week, it’s scheduled to run before screenings of The Host. Written by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, the continuing story stars Logan Lerman, Brandon T. Jackson, Alexandra Daddario, Douglas Smith, Mary Birdsong, Yvette Nicole Brown, Missi Pyle, Sean Bean, Nathan Fillion, Anthony Head, Paloma Kwiatkowski, Leven Rambin, Stanley Tucci, Robert Maillet and Zoe Aggeliki.

This time around we find Percy Jackson, the son of Poseidon, continuing his “epic journey to fulfill his destiny,” and simply stay alive, as he teams up with his demigod friends to retrieve the Golden Fleece, the only thing that has the power to save the heroes home and training ground, Camp Half-Blood.

I’ll be checking it out if only to see Sean Bean (Zeus) in a role in which he cannot die at the end and Nathan Fillion as Hermes.

You can check out some of the action in the production stills below:

Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters hits theater screens on August 16th.

As a nice tie-in with the opening events of The Hunger Games‘ sequel, Catching Fire, which feature the winners of the 74th Hunger Games parading through the districts on a victory tour, Lionsgate have released these victory portraits of Elizabeth Banks’ Effie Trinket, Stanley Tucci’s Caesar Flickerman, Woody Harrelson‘s Haymitch Abernathy, Lenny Kravitz’s Cinna, and of course, Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss.

UPDATE! The Hob has unveiled the portrait of Beetee (Jeffrey Wright).

UPDATE #4! Ladies and gentlemen, the latest portrait has been released via MTV and it’s sure to have fans everywhere swooning, Finnick Odair (Sam Claflin).

UPDATE #5! Another portrait hits the web via Yahoo! Movies, this one of President Snow (Donald Sutherland),

I think they’re stunning, what do you think? And is that Katniss’ Mockingjay dress or another?

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark.   Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts.  Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.

Directed by Francis Lawrence and also starring Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Donald Sutherland, Toby Jones, Jena Malone, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amanda Plummer, Lynn Cohen, Patrick St. Esprit, Meta Golding, Bruno Gunn, Alan Ritchson, E.

Tucci Says: Hayley Atwell Will Cameo in ‘Winter Soldier’

- 02-13-13Comics, Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

Hayley-Atwell-Captain-America-2

So the fact that Captain America: The Winter Soldier takes place in the modern all but mitigates the possibility of any actors besides Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America) and Sebastian Stan (Bucky/Winter Soldier) from returning. But not so says Stanley Tucci, who played super soldier serum creator Dr. Erskine in The First Avenger. He’s not referring to himself, of course, but another character from the film that Cap was very, very fond of.

While being interviewed by Collider about his role in the upcoming Bryan Singer film Jack the Giant Slayer, Tucci let slip that while he hasn’t been yet asked to cameo in the new Captain America film, his co-star Hayley Atwell, who played love interest Peggy Carter in the film, has.

“I’m really sad,” he said about not getting the nod before adding, “I know that Hayley is going back to do a flashback scene, but I have not been asked.”

Tucci counts himself as a fan of the romance between Cap and Peggy in the first film. “I really love that.  I really love the relationship between the two of them,” Tucci added, but how did he find out about Atwell’s re-appearance in the Marvel Universe? “I just had dinner with [her] last night, we’ve become good friends.”

As previously reported, Revenge actress Emily VanCamp will play the leading lady in The Winter Soldier, and rumor has it the character is none other than Sharon Carter, granddaughter of Peggy. So will Cap flashback upon meeting the new Agent Carter? Or maybe Atwell’s going to put on old age make-up, as revealed in the deleted scenes of The Avengers, we know that Peggy’s still alive in 2012.

But on a final note for this story, Tucci has nothing but love for the first Captain America film. “I loved making that movie,” he explained. “I had a great time. I really like Joe Johnston. I think he’s a wonderful director. I also love the look of the film, and the tone of the film, and the character was great. I was thrilled to be able to play that. I was so sad that I died because I wanted to come back and do another one. It was great to be offered this old, German scientist. I thought, ‘Oh, that’s great.’ I couldn’t tell if I was really flattered or insulted.  I don’t know.”

Captain America: The Winter Soldier will be in theaters April 4, 2014.
