If you took time out of your life to go to the theater this year and see ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction,’ then you know that one of the better parts of that wacky film was Mark Wahlberg. The Boston native’s performance as a small town Texas inventor was just one of the exceedingly silly elements of the film, but he was actually pretty fun to watch. As it turns out, Wahlberg also enjoyed starring in a ‘Transformers’ movie, and he’ll be back for more in ‘Transformers 5’—but that was kind of obvious, right?

One of the most surprising success stories of the year was the Michael Bay-produced ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ reboot, which wound up grossing $464 million worldwide. Directed by Jonathan Liebesman, the new, live-action take on the Turtles may have left something to be desired among critics, but audiences proved that there’s still a healthy fanbase for the enduring heroes—which is why there’s a sequel in the works. Liebesman won’t be returning, however, but Paramount has already found his replacement.

After getting bumped around the release schedule for the better part of a year, the found-footage time travel thriller ‘Project Almanac’ (which used to be known as ‘Welcome to Yesterday’) is finally arriving in theaters this January. And to prove it, the studio has released a new trailer, which makes this look like ‘The Sound of Thunder’ for millennials.

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.

Most people didn't love the way the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles looked in their recent movie, what with the lips and noses and eyes. Little did those people know that it could've been worse. Much, much worse. Case in point: these new 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' concept art sketches that are far more terrifying than anything in Michael Bay's reboot.

Rumors of 'Bad Boys 3' have swirled for years -- the last we heard, it was looking for a writer, though there was no word if stars Martin Lawrence and Will Smith, and director Michael Bay would come back for another outing -- but it finally looks like things might be moving in the right direction. At least, if you think that Lawrence returning for more action is the right direction. (Hint: it is).

You'll be hard-pressed to find many people who actually liked 'Transformers: Age of Extinction.' But unlike the previous three movies in this franchise, the box office actually reflected that. With the film currently struggling to hit $250 million at the domestic box office (despite doing great numbers overseas), it isn't that surprising that director Michael Bay is jumping ship on 'Transformers 5'.

The 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Reboot is Really Just a 'Transformers' Remake

If something seems strangely familiar about the new 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' reboot opening Friday, that’s not too surprising, since Jonathan Liebesman’s film is little more than a thinly veiled remake of the 'Transformers' movies. Sure, the nominal source material for this latest ninja-turtles adventure is Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird’s 1980s comic books, as well as the cartoon series and three live-action films from the early ‘90s, all of which led to a merchandising bonanza built around the characters’ good-natured valor, love of pizza, and fondness for exclamations like “gnarly!”, “radical!” and “cowabunga!” Yet a closer inspection of Liebesman’s adaptation reveals that, far more than those predecessors, the real inspiration for this wannabe-blockbuster is its producer Michael Bay’s four robot-centric extravaganzas. As proof, here’s a rundown of the many clues that 'TMNT' is nothing but 'Transformers' in a half shell.
