Transformers: The Last Knight feat Bumblebee

Transformers: The Last Knight
Director: Michael Bay
Screenwriters: Matt Holloway, Ken Nolan, Art Marcum
Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Anthony Hopkins, Josh Duhamel, Laura Haddock, Isabela Moner, Jerrod Carmichael, Jim Carter, John Goodman, Ken Watanabe, Omar Sy, Peter Cullen
Distributor: Paramount Pictures
Rated PG| 149 Minutes
Release Date: June 21, 2017

Transformers: The Last Knight continues the franchise’s long line of large-scale visuals, epic explosions, poorly written scripts, and lack of care for its own continuity. Even after four of these films, the new Transformers installment fails to learn from any of the previous lessons, and instead, chooses to double down (or should I say quadruples down) on them. So let’s not stand on ceremony and just say what we already know: Transformers: The Last Knight is just another two and half hours’ worth of explosion porn fest with a nonsensical script that has plenty of sexual overtones and characters that play to their racial stereotypes. Oh, and let’s not forget all those explosions and shouting matches. Check out my full review below.

Bradley Cooper in Burnt

Oddly enough, Bradley Cooper has already played as a down-on-his-luck chef given a second chance at taking his career to the next level. But that was before he was nominated for multiple Academy Awards and voiced a hot-headed gun-toting raccoon. In Burnt, Cooper is Adam Jones, a world-renowned two-star Michelin chef of a Parisian restaurant who had it all. However, his ego got in the way, and he lost it all.

Now he has a second chance to regain the respect he once had, while also finding love and the real meaning of passion for food. Check out the latest trailer for Burnt here below.

‘Jurassic World’ Interview: Director Colin Trevorrow

Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow

Colin Trevorrow is going to be a name you’ll be hearing a lot more of in the coming years. Though the filmmaker does have a few directing credits to his name, he got his first major recognition for his Sundance comedy hit, Safety [Not Guaranteed]. After that, he made the leap from small indie film to Jurassic World, starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, and more. The film, which takes place 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park, sees a fully functioning park complete with rides, interactive experiences, and family friendly shows. But behind the scenes, there is a villainous plan that will put the park and everyone in it, in real danger.

We were given a special phone interview with director Colin Trevorrow, where we got to talk about Jurassic World, making that jump from an indie film to a major blockbuster, the threat that social media and internet blogging leaks present to a film production, practical effects vs CG, Star Wars, and much more.

Check out the interview below.

‘Jurassic World’ Will Be A Direct Sequel To The Original, According To Colin Trevorrow

Jurassic World Chris Pratt

Jurassic World is shaping up to be one of this summer’s most promising big-screen blockbusters, but how exactly will the fourth installment in the franchise birthed by Steven Spielberg‘s groundbreaking 1993 smash dinosaur adventure Jurassic Park address the events of the lackluster (but fun in their own way) sequels The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997) and Jurassic Park III (2001)? Short answer: it won’t.

According to a recent interview with Yahoo! Movies, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow claims that his entry in the series won’t acknowledge the second and third movies. In the world of Jurassic World, they never even happened.

‘Jurassic World’ Trailer: Chaos Reigns On Dinosaur Island Theme Park

Jurassic World

Colin Trevorrow‘s Jurassic World takes places years after the events of the first film, Jurassic Park. In many ways this new installment can be considered a reboot that takes place in the same timeline. In Jurassic World, the newly refurbished theme park has better management, and a better dinosaur tamer (played by Chris Pratt). But as always, if you want to increase park attendance, you must bring new attractions. And for a park full of dinosaurs, that means increasing that feeling of fear.

As we will see in the new trailer here below, management got a little ahead of themselves, and broke the boundaries of playing god by creating their own dinosaur, the dangers of which were already expressed in the previous trailers and TV spots. Now we’ll see why mixing dinosaur DNA to create a new one may not have been the best idea.

‘Inferno’: Ron Howard Reveals Cast For Third ‘Da Vinci Code’ Movie

Dan Brown's Inferno

Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard has officially revealed the cast for Inferno, the third movie in his Da Vinci Code trilogy based on the books of author Dan Brown.

The previous two movies, 2006’s The Da Vinci Code and 2009’s Angels & Demons, starred two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks in the lead, and the actor again reprises his role as Robert Langdon for the trilogy-maker. The second movie was actually Hanks’ first ever live-action sequel, believe it or not (he of course voiced the character Woody in Pixar’s Toy Story animated features and shorts), which naturally makes Inferno his first live-action trilogy.

You can see who else Howard has announced for the cast below.

Read Adam Frazier’s review of this film from May here.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is the X-Men movie I’ve dreamed of since my youth, back in the day when I mowed lawns during the dog days of summer to save up enough money to buy the latest X-comics off the shaky wire racks at my neighborhood 7-11. Those were the days when the comics were written by the great Chris Claremont and drawn by his gifted artistic equal Jim Lee and Future Past is the closest we’ve come yet to having a motion picture that brings those bold emotions, visuals, and outrageous “only in the funny books” style of four-color storytelling to explosive life.

As the late, great Mickey Newbury once sung, the future’s not what it used to be. The world has long been ravaged by a war between an alliance of mutants and sympathetic humans and the relentless robotic mutant hunters the Sentinels. Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and his X-Men are now the last remnants of the resistance and every day their numbers get lower. Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) and her ability to project a person’s consciousness back in time has helped give them a slim advantage in the ongoing battle and that power must now be used to send someone back to the point in history when the war became unavoidable: the assassination of Sentinel creator Dr. Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) at the hands of Xavier’s former friend and surrogate sister Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) in 1973.

Jurassic World Image

In 2015, Universal Pictures will take us back to the world of Jurassic Park with Jurassic World. The studio has given us three films featuring the beautiful and dangerous creatures, once thought to be extinct, but risen from their dirt grave thanks to the powers of science. But how exactly will the Colin Trevorrow-directed film differ from the previous three?

Well a new rumor has popped up that suggests that in Jurassic World will be some new dinosaurs never before seen in the previous three that are more like a cocktail mix of different dinosaurs than actual dinosaurs. These new rumors also suggest some new interesting plot points and action sequences. Hit the jump to read more.
