Hailee Steinfeld says Bumblebee could be first of new Transformers franchise

  • JoBlo
The movies in the Transformers franchise have never been critical darlings, but they do make an awful lot of money. However, the last installment, Transformers: The Last Knight, saw a significant drop in box-office revenue compared to its predecessors, perhaps signalling that audiences had at long last had enough of Michael Bay's bombastic blockbusters. But the franchise... Read More...

Kate Beckinsale Slams the ‘Archaic’ Culture of Body Shaming and Sexually Harassing Women

Kate Beckinsale Slams the ‘Archaic’ Culture of Body Shaming and Sexually Harassing Women
Kate Beckinsale is done with the “archaic” culture of body shaming women.

The actress posted an impassioned speech on Instagram after seeing an article in the Daily Mail that said she was 11 years older than her actual age of 44.

“While, yes, it can be funny to read untrue things about yourself, I’ve been aware for years (with this newspaper but by no means confined to it) of how the glee in shaming women, often with lies like this, is so much darker and further reaching than enjoying a little schadenfreude,” Beckinsale writes.

at the 20th anniversary of ‘Titanic,’ where are all the knockoffs?

December 2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the release of what would become one of the most lucrative and most deliriously popular movies ever made: James Cameron’s Titanic. It should also mark the 20th anniversary of the beginning of a wave of Titanic clones — and it says something about the movie industry that it doesn’t.

The epic romantic disaster drama debuted in Us cinemas on December 19th, 1997, and wouldn’t leave Us cinemas until October 1998, 41 weeks later. It earned $1.8 billion worldwide, and remained the biggest box-office hit ever until 2010 (when it was supplanted by Cameron’s own Avatar). Titanic wasn’t just a huge hit; it was an inescapable phenomenon. Showings were sold-out well into early 1998, even with the film in saturation release, and it stayed at the top of the box-office charts for 15 consecutive weeks (still a record). The film was a critical success, and it tied for

During the November 21 episode “Petey IV,” the show cut to an awkward family dinner between Farrow, Allen, and Soon-Yi Previn and joked about the rumors that Farrow is actually the son of Frank Sinatra and not Allen.

A Secret Pro-Trump Message Was Hidden on a ‘Transformers’ Toy
The “Transformers” franchise is known for many things: catch phrases, like “Autobots, roll out”; garish Michael Bay movies; the battle between good and evil robots who can turn into various kinds of vehicles. One thing it is not known for is full-throated support for Donald Trump’s polarizing agenda. Until now. As io9 reports, one eagle-eyed Twitter user discovered this week that the acronym Maga – shorthand for Trump’s campaign slogan “Make America Great Again” — somehow ended up hidden on one of Hasbro’s new “Power of the Primes” Transformers toy line. The message, found on a toy of the classic character Jazz,

Will New Oscar Voters Be Bold Enough to Embrace Popular Films?

Will New Oscar Voters Be Bold Enough to Embrace Popular Films?
Everyone is curious about how Oscar voting will be affected by the Academy’s new members, with 1,700 individuals (or 23%) invited in the past three years.

For me, there’s only one important issue: Do they like popular movies?

Careful, this is a trick question, because “popular” is hard to define, especially when it comes to Oscar.

This year, worldwide box office was led by “Beauty and the Beast,” which earned $1.2 billion. The global top 20 also includes awards possibilities like “Logan,” “Dunkirk” and “Wonder Woman.” There are other 2017 films that make you feel better at the end than you did at the start, including “The Big Sick,” “The Disaster Artist,” “Downsizing,” “Call Me by Your Name” and “Get Out.”

But what are their Oscar chances? In the past 15 years, Oscar voters have leaned toward dark material.

For most of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences’ 90 years, popular films got regular Oscar attention. Among the many

Emily Blunt, John Krasinski Stay Silent to Survive in Creepy ‘A Quiet Place’ Trailer

Emily Blunt, John Krasinski Stay Silent to Survive in Creepy ‘A Quiet Place’ Trailer
Silence equals survival in the first trailer for the supernatural horror film “A Quiet Place,” starring Emily Blunt and John Krasinski.

The first footage, released on Thursday, shows a family of four living in the woods in a rundown house and using sign language. The tagline reads, “Listen closely, move carefully, and never make a sound. If they can’t hear you, they can’t hunt you.”

The trailer features a creepy wooden crucifix on a bridge, the family attempting to play Monopoly, and a fire starting when a lantern is knocked over.

Krasinski is directing from a script he wrote, revising the screenplay from Scott Beck and Bryan Woods, which the studio acquired prior to Krasinski and Blunt’s involvement.

Krasinski previously helmed “The Hollars” and “Brief Interviews With Hideous Men” in 2009. Michael Bay will produce along with his partners Andrew Form and Brad Fuller of Platinum Dunes. Krasinski and his Sunday Night Productions partner [link=nm

‘A Quiet Place’ Trailer: Emily Blunt and John Krasinski Stay Silent in Supernatural Thriller

After his overtly earnest drama The Hollars, John Krasinski seems to have taken a few notes from the Blumhouse method for his next directorial effort. A Quiet Place, produced by Michael Bay, is a supernatural thriller following a family who is terrorized by some sort of outside force, but not much else is known about the plot.

The first trailer has now landed, which reveals what looks to be a dialogue-free film. Starring Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Noah Jupe and Wonderstruck‘s Millicent Simmonds, I’m looking forward to The Office star having a bit more fun with a genre effort, so hopefully he can pull of the restrictions he’s set for himself.

Check out the trailer below ahead of a spring release via Paramount.

A Quiet Place opens on April 6, 2018.
