Michael Bay took a little excursion from the 'Transformers' movies to make his latest film, 'Pain and Gain,' and we've got a brand new official poster for the musclehead crime flick starring Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson.

Well, that didn't take very long, did it? While a few weeks ago most concerned themselves with petty matters like the Presidential election, the real story came out of Colorado and Washington, where a measure passed legalizing the sale of marijuana! While perhaps symptom of a delayed reaction (hint hint), it seems Hollywood has responded in kind by developing a FOX sitcom based on the legalizing movement! From the producers of 'Entourage' no less, could 'The Happy Tree' push the movement even further?
'Transformers 4' is happening and while we don't know much about the film, we do know this much: it will be directed by Michael Bay, hence it will star a hot young girl. In previous installments it was Megan Fox or Isabel Lucas or Rosie Huntington-Whiteley but with an all new cast lined up for 'Transformers 4' (headed by Mark Wahlberg), Bay is out searched for fresh blood. So what girls does he have in his sights?
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.
So much of the scuttlebutt around movies is usually half-truths. Three weeks ago we reported that Mark Wahlberg might be up for 'Transformers 4.' The next day it was denied. But now it looks like Wahlberg has been confirmed for the movie by the director himself.
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.'
Yesterday, the disturbing rumor hit the web: Mark Wahlberg was in talks with director Michael Bay to star in 'Transformers 4.' But today we have an update from Bay himself who clarifies the news and explains where the confusion came from.
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?
