There's an art to choosing a film's release date, particularly when you're dealing with big summer tentpoles that could spawn a franchise and need the perfect placement. What date would be perfect for the upcoming remake/reboot of 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'? We're not sure, but it looks like Paramount decided to make a change and have pushed the film back a few months.
Seeing as pirates tend to take what they want without fear of reproach, it should come as little surprise that Starz's forthcoming 'Treasure Island' prequel 'Black Sails' has already pilfered itself a second season, a full five months before the pilot premiere even airs to the general public. Still, will the Michael Bay-produced series live up to its promise?
News of Comic-Con 2013's many panels and events is starting to pour in, so Starz has issued the first major announcement of their own. The forthcoming Michael Bay-produced pirate drama and 'Treasure Island' prequel 'Black Sails' will hold a fan-only sneak peek screening of the pilot episode, and we've got all the details!
The other day we heard that Paramount Pictures is now back in the Jason Voorhees business, taking the rights to 'Friday the 13th' back from Warner Bros. and preparing a sequel to the 2009 remake. Today, we learn that the producers of that remake, Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes production company, are back in the saddle as well.
As you may remember, 'Transformers 3' (dubbed 'Dark of the Moon') climaxed with a massive battle between warring robots that essentially leveled the city of Chicago. We expect nothing less from director Michael Bay, so we didn't bat an eye at that iconic skyline crumbling into a million pieces. However, Bay has shared a new image from the set of 'Transformers 4' that suggests that this massive action set piece has had a lasting impact on the world.
'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.
