We don't know much about 'Transformers 4.' We know Michael Bay will be back (of course). We know that Mark Wahlberg will be replacing Shia LaBeouf as the human who gets the most lines between robot fights. We know that it'll most likely be more of the same, for better or for worse. But now we know a little more: Michael Bay spoke to TMZ about the film and revealed that part four will take place four years after the events of the last film.
There's been lots of talk about Mark Wahlberg lately, what with the initial rumor that he'd be starring in 'Transformers 4' and then the follow up statement from Michael Bay himself claiming those to be false. So what is this star up to nowadays? Oh nothing, he's just working on an Americanized remake of 'Point Blank.'
Michael Bay played footsies for a while with doing more 'Transformers' movies, but has signed up for a fourth film, because... well, money. Lots and lots of it. Bay earned $80 Million from the first film (which is the lowest grossing film of the franchise), and gets 8% of the merchandising money, so it's safe to assume that he makes over $100 Million a sequel. But it looks like he's bringing in a new lead.
Meet a most unlikely box office champion: a foul-mouthed teddy bear from Boston. ' Ted' seemed a strange proposition from the get-go, but the little guy with a big heart and extensive vocabulary (courtesy of writer-director-star Seth MacFarlane) made a hefty splash when he burst onto the scene in late-June with a $54 million opening. And now, four months later, he's the King of the R-Rated Comedies.
In the 'Broken City' trailer you'll see Mark Wahlberg being the usual Mark Wahlberg ("Yauh gonna wawk away..."), Russell Crowe being the aging bad guy (when did become the actor playing the bad guy in a Mark Wahlberg action movie?) and Catherine Zeta-Jones as a slut. Can all these moving parts come together to make an effective political conspiracy action suspect thriller?
After spending the last five years making three 'Transformers' movies, Michael Bay decided to take a break and make his "Small" movie. Considering it's Michael Bay, and stars Dwayne Johnson and Mark Wahlberg, we're curious to see how small his 'Pain and Gain' is. We'll know for sure April 26, 2013, when it hits theaters.
Mark Wahlberg and his producing partner Stephen Levinson picking up the rights to a dystopic science fiction comic book series called 'Armory Wars' is the exact kind of news you'd expect to hear in the current franchise-heavy Hollywood climate. What makes this a unique situation is that 'Armory Wars' is not just a comic: it's the backstory to a series of concept albums from the band Coheed and Cambria and it's written by the group's lead singer, Claudio Sanchez.
