Since 2007, the only non-'Transformers' film Michael Bay has directed is 2013's 'Pain & Gain,' based on a true crime story that Bay was pretty much born to adapt into a film. After the release of last year's 'Transformers: Age of Extinction,' Bay declared that while the franchise would continue on, he would not return to direct another installment, and now it seems he may have found his first non-robot project -- and it's some pretty serious subject matter. Attention: Mark Wahlberg, your services will likely be required because Michael Bay wants to make a military movie.

A new film from filmmaking brothers Joel and Ethan Coen is always highly-anticipated, but it turns out we're just going to have to wait a little longer for their latest effort. The star-studded 'Hail, Caesar!' which reunites the directors with George Clooney and Tilda Swinton, has been officially given a 2016 release date, and we have a feeling this one will be well-worth the wait.
'American Horror Story: Freak Show' has proven a curiosity unto itself, not only by today's addition of Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka, but by the return of Naomi Grossman's 'Asylum' character Pepper. Now, the future Briarcliff inmate will have some 'Freak Show' company later on it seems, as Lily Rabe has been confirmed to reprise her 'Asylum' role as Sister Mary Eunice!
If you can't get enough of Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper on screen together, we've got good news for you: between filming 'Silver Linings Playbook' and 'American Hustle' for David O. Russell, the pair filmed the period drama 'Serena,' which will finally be released in the U.S. next spring. And now we have the first U.S. trailer for Oscar-winner Susanne Bier's new film, which endured an 18-month editing process.
ScreenCrush wraps up the latest in movies and TV you might have missed. Today, check out the new poster for 'Foxcatcher,' watch tiny snippets of 'Furious 7' and learn what Netflix is up to next.
'SNL' already gave us an exciting preview of this Saturday's November opener with news that Prince would perform an eight-minute jam session set instead of the usual 2 songs, but now it's Chris Rock's turn in the spotlight. Watch the one-time 'SNL' star break the usual promo format to hit the streets with Bobby Moynihan, and maybe, just maybe, throw in a Prince cameo!
'BoJack Horseman' isn't just a very funny, very clever and very smart comedy, it may be the best original program that Netflix has produced yet. Seriously. Go ahead and let the trashy soap opera antics of 'House of Cards' steal the glory at the Emmy nominations! 'BoJack Horseman' is the kind of show that's too good and too cool for awards.
We normally toss a few grains of salt onto showrunners and stars chatting about potential collaborations, but in the case of 'American Horror Story: Freak Show''s Ryan Murphy and Neil Patrick Harris, chatting seems to have paid off! The former 'HIMYM' star, 2015 Oscars host and NBC variety leader will officially guest on the 'Freak Show' later this season, bringing with him husband David Burtka.
Marvel has officially announced that Phase 3 of their Marvel Cinematic Universe will come to a close with 'Avengers: Infinity War,' which will be released in two parts in May of 2018 and 2019. Judging from the recently released trailer (and what we already know about Marvel comics), it will follow Thanos as he gets his hands on all six Infinity stones (Soul, Time, Space, Mind, Reality and Power), gaining God-like power in the process (and using it all to impress Death, who he's desperately in love with). What better way to celebrate this massive Marvel event with your very own Infinity Gauntlet?!
'Saw' turns ten this year, and while the franchise’s “torture porn” legacy is clear, its serialized story – spanning seven squirm-inducing films – remains anything but. Few cinematic series have ever told a continuous tale with less grace, intelligibility and basic common sense than 'Saw' (as a quick, headache-inducing peek at its Wikipedia page confirms). Nonetheless, there is some sort of method to the maddening mythology surrounding puzzle-loving fiend Jigsaw (Tobin Bell), as we discovered upon revisiting James Wan and Leigh Whannell’s genre efforts. Concerned with cancer, revenge, and all sorts of righteous moralizing, the killer’s various machinations are a righteous mess that, on the original’s tenth anniversary, we finally try to clean up, via this rundown of what Jigsaw’s really up to – and why, and how – throughout his insanely elaborate deadly-trap saga.
