Here Comes Optimus Prime In These New Images From Age Of Extinction

Thanks to Empire they have gone big rather than home with our cover movie, Transformers: Age Of Extinction. Yes, Michael Bay's back, but this time he's accompanied by Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Jack Reynor, Sophia Myles and Nicola Peltz.

This fourth film in the franchise is something of a fresh start, and sees an Earth scarred by the events of the last three films but moving on after the disappearance of all giant robots (although we're guessing that everyone gives their car a suspicious look in the morning, lest it suddenly turn into a giant mechanoid). In particular, Shia LaBeouf and family have moved on and we have some new leads.


When Mark Wahlberg's inventor, Cade Yeager, discovers a buried Transformer, the stage is set for the return of the giant beasties. There will also be some business with Cade's daughter Tessa (Nicola Peltz); her secret racing driver boyfriend Shane; Stanley Tucci's Joshua; his geologist assistant Darcy (Sophia Myles); "the CEO of the Chinese Transformers", played by Li Bingbing; and Kelsey Grammer's Harold Attinger, the film's non-robot big bad.

"I'm feeling really good about this one. I love my cast," Bay told us. "There's a huge scale to this, but also huge soul."

Mark Wahlberg also seemed to be enjoying the experience when we visited the set. "Ted was a good tool to prepare me for this," he said. "Having to identify with things that aren't there. The bear prepped me for that. And as embarrassing as doing things like the fight sequence with him were - just throwing myself around a room for 12 hours while the crew just sat eating sandwiches and watching - it taught me how to do this shit."

It also looks like this will not be the last instalment of the series, with Bay open to continuing the franchise, it seems. "Well, it's a director's world... It's a franchise world at the moment. You know, Peter Jackson is still in Middle-earth..."

Oldboy Review. A Hardcore Of A Revenge Film

Oldboy Review
By: RAMA

RAMA is back with another review for us. Please make sure to follow him on Facebook and Twitter.


It’s been years since I watched Chan-wook Park’s film that pretty much took 2003 by storm, everybody was talking about Oldboy, I remember that much. I remember watching the movie and it felt like I needed a thicker skin. I don’t know if Park would be flattered by this remake and I may be alone on this but I think Spike Lee did it justice in terms of maintaining how disturbing, how chilling and unforgiving this film is. Revenge that turns into redemption. At times, it even gets diabolically fun.


OLDBOY is a provocative, visceral thriller that follows the story of Joe Doucette, a man who is abruptly kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement, for no apparent reason. When he is suddenly released without explanation, he begins an obsessive mission to find out who imprisoned him, only to discover that the real mystery is why he was set free.


Josh Brolin in this film carries that quiet Charles Bronson-esque persona, he’s bent on one thing and one thing only, too bad they didn’t give Brolin’s character, Joe Doucette, that Dae-su Oh crazy big Asian fro, but that would probably be distracting and it would end up be the only thing of Josh Brolin that people would talk about.


Scripted by Mark Protosevich whose body of work includes The Cell, and I Am Legend. Protosevich seems synonymous with a story about one lone character trying to get to the bottom of things, figuring out why he or she is the one getting screwed by the world. With OLDBOY, I feel that Protosevich and Spike Lee focus more on inviting the audience in on Doucette’s investigation rather than trying to copy the Korean film or the manga comic frame by frame. I don’t remember how much help the lead character received in the film, but in this OLDBOY, lone Doucette suddenly finds himself being assisted by Michael Imperioli and Elizabeth Olsen and also the magic of internet.

I find it quite difficult to like Elizabeth Olsen’s character, Marie Sebastian, to me, she’s not a strong female character, she’s more or less a victim that has become a stray dog, and is incredibly clingy. But I’m highly impressed with Sharlto Copley who has played a villain in movies prior, but what he puts on the table here in OLDBOY is one for the books, there’s something charismatic, something magnetic about his character Adrian, and yet you just know that he’s the kind of person you should always keep your distance from. I even sense a bit of Hannibal Lecter in Copley’s cold, articulate and manipulative performance. It’s the side of Copley you’ll enjoy and fear at the same time.

Without spoiling too much, OLDBOY has enough twists and turns to keep you guessing at every moment and get you shocked. Just like the original, this film deals with issues that may cause discomfort and I’m not talking about the violence, which is quite the watch for those of us fans of such films The Raid: Redemption. Spike Lee doesn’t waste any precious time, he wants Doucette to get to his targets, one by one, and then you as the audience expect Doucette to do his worst. Lee and Brolin did a fantastic job with the years where Doucette was held captive, the state or condition or the physical transformation that Brolin put himself through in order to bring you this beaten down Doucette is nothing short of remarkable. Excellent job by the production design, that little prison motel room was well staged, it’s like it has a life of its own, it plays a significant role in Douchett’s road down to madness and up to soberdom.

Along the way, you’ll be amused by bits and piece of humor at the expense of 20 years gone by, just like Captain America trying to adapt himself in the modern world, but for the most part, OLDBOY never loses sight on its agenda. It’s investigation, it’s violence, it’s revelation, those three are the formulas for this one hardcore of a revenge film, that is OLDBOY.

Frozen & Catching Fire Are Breaking Records This Thanksgiving Holiday.

The pair of films will each rake in more money than any previous holiday title, not accounting for inflation; Spike Lee's "Oldboy" bombing.

Disney's family film Frozen and Lionsgate's The Hunger Games: Catching Fire are making history at the Thanksgiving box office, where they are set to gross as much as $90 million and $100 million, respectively, for the Wednesday-Sunday stretch.

FROZEN Review-

HomeFront-

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire-

In regards to records, Frozen is easily on course to nab the top Thanksgiving opening of all time, eclipsing the $80.1 million five-day debut of Pixar's Toy Story 2 in 1999. It's also destined to score the top opening for a Disney Animation Studios title, besting the $68.7 million debut of Tangled over Thanksgiving in 2010.
Catching Fire, now in its second weekend, will mark the top-grossing Thanksgiving film of any movie, topping previous record-holder Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone ($82.4 million). It also nabbed the best gross ever for Thanksgiving day -- $14.9 million from 4,163 theaters -- besting the $13.1 million earned by Toy Story 2. Globally, the tentpole has earned north of $423 million.

Frozen, placing No. 2 on Thursday, grossed $11.1 million from 3,742 locations for a two-total of $26.6 million. Family traffic usually dips on Thanksgiving day, then surges on Friday.

Loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen's classic fairy tale The Snow Queen, Frozen -- earning a coveted A+ CinemaScore -- tells the story of a fearless princess (Kristen Bell) who sets off on an epic journey to find her sister, whose icy powers have caused an eternal winter. Last weekend, the 3D pic did big business when it played exclusively at Disney's El Capitan Theater in Hollywood.

After Frozen, the news was mixed for the other new holiday films.

Action-thriller Homefront, starring Jason Statham, grossed roughly $1.4 million from 2,572 theaters on Thursday to place No. 5, bringing its two-day total just shy of $3 million. Distributed by Open Road films, the film may have trouble hitting $10 million by Sunday.

Homefront, receiving a B CinemaScore, features Statham as a widowed ex-DEA agent who moves to a small town with his daughter, only to have the decision blow up in his face. James Franco and Winona Ryder also star.

Fox Searchlight's African-American holiday musical Black Nativity, targeting faith-based consumers and earning an A- CinemaScore, fared better on Thursday, but is still struggling. The pic, coming in at No. 8, grossed $680,000 from 1,516 theaters for a two-day gross of $1.1 million.

Directed by Kasi Lemmons and based loosely on Langston Hughes' play, Black Nativity's ensemble cast is led by Forest Whitaker, Angela Bassett, Tyrese Gibson, Jennifer Hudson and Mary J. Blige.

The film, about a streetwise teen from Baltimore who travels to New York to spend the holidays with his estranged family, may only eke out a five-day gross in the $3 million range, far less than hoped for. Black Nativity, earning an A- CinemaScore, is likely being hurt by other African-American films still strong in the marketplace, including The Best Man Holiday.

Spike Lee's Oldboy, opening in 583 theaters Wednesday, is bombing in its debut and may not hit $2 million in the five-day stretch. From a script by Mark Protosevich, the remake of the cult South Korean film stars Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen and Sharlto Copley. Oldboy marks the final release from Peter Schlessel's FilmDistrict before Schlessel officially takes over as CEO of Focus Features on Jan. 1.

Elsewhere, both 20th Century Fox's The Book Thief and The Weinstein Co.'s Philomena are making major expansions over the Thanksgiving holiday,

Book Thief, opening in in select cities earlier this month in a bid to build word of mouth, quickly cracked the top 10 Wednesday as it expanded into a total of 1,234 theaters. On Thursday, it took in $825,000 for a domestic total of $3 million and placed No. 7.

The Book Thief, based on the best-selling novel by Markus Zusak about a young girl living with her foster parents in Nazi Germany, stars Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson, Sophie Nelisse and Ben Schnetzer.

Stephen Frears' critically acclaimed Philomena moved up to No. 11, grossing $433,864 on Thursday from 753 runs for a total $964,267. The awards contender stars Judi Dench and Steve Coogan.

Online ticket service Fandango reported Friday that it's already enjoying its best month on record in terms of advance ticket sales, thanks to hits including Catching Fire, Thor: The Dark World and Frozen

The Visitor Blu-ray Review. "Indescribably Weird" Doesn't Begin To Capture Our Thoughts

The Visitor Blu-ray Review
By: MattInRC

The release of The Visitor on Blu-ray is an oddly-crafted creation, even by today's standards.

If you never heard of international film producer Ovidio G. Assonitis, you're not alone. A maverick of the 1970's, he regularly 're-imagined' successful films of the time into cheap knockoffs (Jaws became Tentacles, The Exorcist morphed into Beyond the Door). Assonitis had a style to sure, and many of his films exult in their oddity and blatant 'borrowing.' Among his greatest 'creations' is The Visitor, a film so odd - even by today's warped standards - that it instantly enters our Top 5 list. Its eminent arrival onto Blu-ray gives us a chance to look back at what can only be described as an incredibly weird concoction.

Picture this: intergalactic warrior Jerzy Colsowicz (John Huston) joins forces with a Christ-like alien figure (Franco Nero) to battle the demonic 8 year old Katy (Paige Conner) and her pet hawk on Earth. Gifted with telekinetic powers, a sailor's mouth, and a penchant for violence, Katy needs an other-worldly intervention, and Jerzy is just the man for the job. Katy's mother Barbara (Joanne Nail) seems to have an ability to produce children with mutant powers, peaking the interest of her new boyfriend Raymond (Lance Henriksen), who is part of a shadowy cult of evil-doers bent on getting Barbara to produce another child. But that's not all: during Katy’s birthday party, a wrapped gift believed to be a harmless toy bird actually reveals a loaded gun, which Katy happily wields, shooting Barbara in the back and instantly paralyzing her. In Raymond's mind, this act will make Barbara more vulnerable and hopefully force her to marry him. But the old man Jerzy won't have it, and he embarks on a mission to save Katy's soul by taking her back to...wherever he's from.

If all this seems a bit strange, you don't know the half of it. Mixing elements of The Omen, The Birds, and perhaps even Close Encounters of the Third Kind, it's like watching someone's acid trip from the inside. Psychedelic, overly dramatic, and filled with funk music and odd 70's fast closeups, the film exists on the outer edges of cinema, even by today's standards. A story about a Christ-like alien figure joining an intergalactic warrior to battle a demonic 8-year-old girl sounds more like someone's idea of a joke, but The Visitor relishes in the moniker. It's so blatantly unapologetic in its presentation - including some blue screen work of an an epic off-world battle between Jerzy and another demon figure - that one can't imagine the creative team knew or even cared about the end result. Written by Assonitis and directed by Giulio Paradisi, there's an uneven and unsettling feeling here, as if too many hands were in the cookie jar, and those hands were of aliens that didn't know what cookies were. Strange editing cuts persists, and the arrival of Sam Peckinpah as Baraba's ex-husband doctor left his scenes with Nail sounding like a Bruce Lee film.

Everything seems to be thrown into the operation, few of which feel complete or well-thought out. But at least we're treated to a cast of Hollywood legends, including Glenn Ford as a police detective and Shelley Winters as Barbara's housemaid. Henrickson is featured in one of his first roles, and to their credit none of the cast appears to be sleepwalking through their lines. Connor is quite simply the evilest child since The Exorcist, with a potty mouth to match her Antichrist stature. When she appears at the end of the film, head shaved of her long locks, it's an emphatic slamming of the door to a performance that must have shocked moviegoers of the time. The 'music' by Composer Franco Micalizzi is really just one theme and a handful of 2001-esque environmentals, played over and over until its big theme becomes lost. It actually becomes quite comical how often and poorly-placed Micalizzi's theme is, arising each time Jerzy escapes death or flashes a hero moment at Connner.

The Visitor is a weird movie, even by our standards. It easily stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the likes of Begotten and Altered States, and in some ways reminds us of standards in film-making that we're glad never took hold. We can only recommend it as part of a drinking game, where viewers would take a shot each time Mivalizzi's theme rears its head. Whether its impending release onto Blu-ray is a warning, a curse, or something in-between, you've been duly informed. The Visitor is Rated R for language and weird Euro music, and has a runtime of 90 minutes.

Win VIP Tickets To An Advance Screening For The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug In Fresno

Want to win VIP Tickets for the advance Screening For The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug on Dec 9, 2013 7:30 pm in Fresno?

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is an upcoming 2013 epic fantasy adventure film co-written, produced and directed by Peter Jackson. It is the second installment of a three-part film series based on J. R. R. Tolkien's 1937 novel The Hobbit, beginning with An Unexpected Journey (2012) and set to conclude with There and Back Again (2014). The three films together act as prequels to Jackson's The Lord of the Rings film series.


The storyline continues the events of An Unexpected Journey, in which the hobbit Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) travels with the wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and a company of thirteen dwarves led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) into the Kingdom of Erebor, taking them through Mirkwood, Esgaroth, and Dale to combat with the dragon Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch).

Jackson wrote the screenplay with his longtime collaborators and Lord of the Rings co-writers Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens, and Guillermo del Toro, originally chosen to direct the Hobbit films. The film also stars Evangeline Lilly, Lee Pace, Luke Evans, Ken Stott, James Nesbitt and Orlando Bloom.


The hobbit Bilbo Baggins, along with the wizard Gandalf and the dwarf Thorin Oakenshield and his twelve companions, leave the Carrock after the events of the previous film. They continue east to the edge of the forest of Mirkwood where they encounter the skin-changer Beorn. Gandalf departs before the others enter Mirkwood where they are attacked by giant spiders and, except for Bilbo, are captured by Wood-elves. Bilbo helps the dwarves escape from the elves and they follow the forest river to Lake-town, where they meet the Master of the town, and Bard, a bowman and the descendant of the original Lord of Dale. After acquiring a boat and supplies from the town the company travels to the Lonely Mountain. They eventually find the hidden door into the mountain and Bilbo enters and encounters the dragon Smaug.


In the meantime Gandalf leads the White Council to drive the Necromancer out of Dol Guldur. Gandalf enters Dol Guldur where he discovers the true identity of the Necromancer. The elves of Mirkwood, led by King Thranduil and his son, Legolas, must battle the orc invasions from Dol Guldur.

Win Tickets To An Advance Screening For GRUDGE MATCH In Fresno

Win Tickets To An Advance For Screening For GRUDGE MATCH on Dec 16, 2013 7:30 pm in Fresno.


GRUDGE MATCH is an upcoming sports comedy starring Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro as aging boxers stepping into the ring for one last bout. Stallone and De Niro have both previously been in successful boxing films (Rocky and Raging Bull, respectively) and worked together in Cop Land. The film is being directed by Peter Segal.


Two retired Pittsburgh boxers, Billy "The Kid" McDonnen (De Niro) and Henry "Razor" Sharp (Stallone), have an unsettled thirty year old grudge. It revolves around the fact that Razor retired the night before their match for the title, thus destroying both of their careers. Now they have an opportunity to get the score even with one last rematch, it will be hard to stay focused while they're blowing up on social networks and struggling physically with their age and the training.
