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.

PARIS, TX — Local seemingly well-liked mechanic is killed by Transformer death bomb.

Trying to Understand the ‘Transformers’ Franchise: What Is the Meaning of All This?

After watching the first three ‘Transformers’ films and sitting through the fourth -- ‘Age of Extinction’ -- it becomes less and less clear who these films are really made for and what Bay’s grand cinematic purpose is beyond cashing in on brand recognition. The films are too mature and crude for children, yet too infantile for adults.
