There's the old quote repeated by John Lennon, "life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans." '2 Guns,' starring the formidable Denzel Washington and the affable Mark Wahlberg, feels like the type of movie big stars make when they are in-between the projects they'll end up being proud of. '2 Guns' isn't terrible – it's just rare to see a movie content with “agreeable in-flight entertainment” as its highest achievement.
Though we aren't yet into August, the summer movie season is winding down. '2 Guns' opens this Friday, and it stars Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg, but it's hard to compare it to the big event films like 'Iron Man 3' or 'Man of Steel.' Maybe that's why there's a brand new trailer for the film to help get people excited for its release in four days.
'Transformers 4' has promised a complete reboot for the franchise including all new robots. One classic who will return despite the new direction is the Autobots leader Optimus Prime. But even Prime isn't exempt from the reboot. The main robot character will have a completely new look in the film and director Michael Bay has revealed that new look to the fans.
After dominating the box office this past weekend with Michael Bay's 'Pain and Gain,' Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Mark Wahlberg are heading to the last place we expected to find them -- the small screen. The body-building duo will reunite for an upcoming HBO drama pilot about retired athletes in Miami, with Johnson set to star and Peter Berg attached to direct a script from 'Entourage' writer Stephen Levinson. But is there any chance HBO would pass on such a star-studded series?
I watch a lot of 'Project Runway.' My wife likes it -- and, yeah, I like it too. A show dedicated to fashion design that features creative and powerful women is a weird thing to think about while watching a Michael Bay movie but that's exactly what I did during 'Pain and Gain.' Bay could learn a thing or two from that show about editing. Not in the cinematic, cutting shots together sense; that he's got. This is a different kind of editing.
It's the kind that is often called out by the 'Runway' judges when they tell the contestants (I'm paraphrasing), "This is too busy. You need to edit. That blue fuzzy hat that looks like a tribble distracts from the gorgeous, ornately sequined dress. The dress is enough. You don't need the tribble hat. Edit."
A Michael Bay movie -- particularly 'Pain & Gain' -- is a sequined dress with a blue tribble hat.
The ‘Pain and Gain’ promotional train has fully left the station: with the release of a new poster and a batch of images just the other day and now a couple of clips to get you pumped (pun intended) for the Michael Bay flick. Check out Rebel Wilson playing doctor with Anthony Mackie, and an unsuccessful kidnapping attempt after the break!
Flexing its way into theaters in a few weeks is Michael Bay's 'Pain and Gain,' an action-comedy about meatheads whose dreams are significantly bigger than their brains. A new poster for the film has appeared online accompanied by a slew of pics, and of course it's dominated by Dwayne Johnson's pecs. How could it not be?
