Transformer: Age of Extinction
So what’s the deal with Michael Bay’s “Transformers: Age Of Extinction”? Is it a reboot or do over now that Shia LaBeouf is no longer part of the series? Apparently, the only rebooting Bay is doing is changing leads. The destruction of Chicago at the end of “Transformers: Dark Of The Moon” is still in play in the upcoming sequel, and the outcome of that disaster turned humanity against the Transformers, so now they’re all in hiding.

Transformers: Age of Extinction
Uh oh. Remember when Michael Bay said T4, aka “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” would likely be his last Transformers movie? Well, it still might be his last Transformers film, but the plan (like usual) is for another new trilogy.

Transformers 4: Age of Extinction, Wahlberg and cast
This week CinemaCon kicks off in Las Vegas, and it's where studios go to show off the big movies to theatre owners, while continually assuring them everything is okay, everyone is going to make lots of movie, and audiences are going to continue to show up en masse for all the latest tentpoles. And naturally in this environment, it can lead to boasting and bragging as studios try to get everyone attending ramped up about their big shiny cinematic baubles. But Mark Wahlberg took it a whole other level.

Transformers: Age of Extinction
“It’s a bit more of a darker vision of the Transformers world… It’s not a kids movie, I’ll tell you that much,” Titus Welliver told Nerdist recently about "Transformers: Age Of Extinction," sending certain corners of fandom into a tizzy. But less reported was Welliver's subsequent clarification, which definitely wasn't written by studio publicists.

Transformers 4: Age of Extinction, skip
The cars might be new and the cast might be different—but under the hood, the engine is the same: director Michael Bay. And for his fourth go at the "Transformers" franchise, you can expect bigger and badder. But better?

Despite saying last summer that “Transformers: Age Of Extinction” would be his last at-bat, it seems Michael Bay’s having a great time on set and may have changed his mind about walking away from the hugely successful franchise. And he may not be alone in continuing the saga of giant robots and rampant product placement.

Michael Bay,  Pain and Gain
When we woke up this morning, a story was circulating that an attempt was made to extort Michael Bay on the set of "Transformers: Age of Extinction" while shooting in Hong Kong. But it all seemed to be resolved. Everyone was safe, and so we made a cup of tea and got on with our day. But then Michael Bay and the studio weighed in, and suddenly, this brief criminal blip became worthy of a movie itself. Inspiration for "More Pain & More Gain"?

It's not really a surprise that Eric Roberts has signed to star in the horror sequel no one cares about (do they?) "The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence)." After all, this is the guy who makes a movie more frequently than people take showers (seriously, look at his IMDb page) and has no quality barometer at all.

Even if we wouldn't say he's quite cracked it yet, we've got a lot of respect for the way that Zac Efron is trying to establish himself as a proper grown-up adult actor. After all, the "High School Musical" series would be an albatross for many, but Efron's quietly been banging out a diverse mix of parts, and while things like "The Paperboy" and "At Any Price" haven't quite paid off yet, he's heading in the right direction. The actor's got several promising projects in the can already, including rom-com "Are We Officially Dating?," JFK ensemble drama "Parkland" and Seth Rogen/Nick Stoller comedy "Townies," and now, hot on the back of signing on to Eran Creevy's "Autobahn," the actor's just lined up thriller "Narc." Sounding a bit like a laugh-free "21 Jump Street," the project's being described as a based-in-fact, college-set version of "Donnie Brasco," and will see the actor play a fratboy who's busted for cocaine possession, and who agrees to become an informant to avoid jail time. The film's set up at Fox

Well, there's no doubt that Kelsey Grammer knows how to play bad. For years he terrorized Bart Simpson as the voice of Sideshow Bob on "The Simpsons," and the recently canceled "Boss" found him as a scheming politician. But he also knows how to turn a phrase and work it over, as he adeptly showed paying the lead on the hit sitcom "Frasier," and yet, a notable big screen career has eluded the actor. There's only so much "Down Periscope" a nation can take. But now the actor is going to the school of Michael Bay.
