Transformers 3 – New Decepticon spotted

Posted by LiveFor on April 2, 2010

Recently there was some news on the cast for Michael Bay’s third Transformers film. It also mentioned a new Autobot in the shape of a Ferrari.

The Realm Toys had news from a studio mole who spotted a new Dodge Charger sporting a certain Decepticon badge. The Mole said:

I was doing my normal rounds on the lot and came across the Transformers 3 work. The main Transformers cars are all there including 2 that I didn’t see in the previous movies. One is a autobot that I couldn’t get close enough to take a picture of because it was being guarded so that it would not be scratched/ damaged. It was a red Ferrari. The other (which wasn’t being guarded as heavily) is a decepticon. It was a dark navy Dodge Charger. I managed to snap a couple of pics with my cell. Sorry for the poor quality.

So far the cast for the new film consists of Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, Tyrese Gibson, Josh Duhamel, Frances McDormand, John Malkovich, Ken Jeong, James Avery and is due out on 1st July 2011

Sympathy for the Devil – Please allow me to introduce Josh Duhamel and Samuel L Jackson’s fighting Heaven and Hell badass pulp movie

Posted by LiveFor on January 22, 2010

If you like films with a supernatural element and some good action then this one is for you. Latino Review have they news on Samuel L. Jackson and Josh Duhamel’s new film project and it sounds kick-ass nasty.

The film, Sympathy for the Devil, has Duhamel (Transformers) and Jackson playing humans in the midst of a battle between heaven and hell. Boaz Yakin of Remember the Titans, is set to direct and a script is good to go. I’ve seen Remember the Titans. It was a good movie, but a World away from this one. Hopefully Yakin will thrive in the change of genre.

The official synopsis is:

Caught in the no-man’s land between Saturday night sin and Sunday morning redemption, Louisiana lawman Harlan Stark (Josh Duhamel) finds that his intervention into a spectacular crime –the bold attempt to assassinate a charismatic preacher –soon escalates into a cosmic confrontation between Heaven and Hell, where angels are warriors as dangerous as demons. Harlan and his loyal partner Jesse (Samuel L. Jackson)stand at the fulcrum between vengeful good and devious evil, with neither side showing anything like mercy. Harlan must find the courage to break the cycle, and reject fanatical revenge –yet he too finds himself transformed. Outrageous, violent and subversive, this new adventure in horror from the director of Remember the Titans is sure to be controversial. SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL blends the seductive sensuality of Angel Heart, the genre-bending audacity of Pulp Fiction and the relentless intensity of The Omen when all hell breaks loose in New Orleans and the sacred becomes as deadly as the profane.

I must say that that sounds fantastic and my kind of movie. There are some big films mentioned in that synopsis and it also reminds me of Fallen, Constantine, Legion and The Prophecy. It could well be one of Jackson’s good films (well he does do some rubbish, but he’s always good to watch) and Duhamel looks as if he is trying to become more of an action hero with this one.

Can’t wait to hear more on the story and see some concept art.

What do you think about the sound of it?

Christina Hendricks gets Life as We Know It

Posted by LiveFor on August 27, 2009

“Mad Men” co-star Christina Hendricks is set to star alongside Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel in Warner Bros. romancer Life as We Know It (plus she’s recently worn a corset on the cover of NY Magazine) and is on the cover of Esquire magazine.

Hendricks was also in Firefly, but I always wonder which comic book character she should play – Power Girl maybe? Anyone else agree or have any other suggestions? Would she make a good Catwoman – go vote in our poll if you think she would.

Greg Berlanti will direct Life As We Know It and will start shooting in Autumn.

The film follows two unattached adults whose worlds are turned upside down when their mutual best friends die in an accident and name them as caregivers of their orphaned daughter. Hendricks will portray the best friend to Heigl’s and Duhamel’s characters.

Heigl and her mother Nancy Heigl are exec producing the film.

Hendricks will soon be seen alongside Emily Mortimer in the indie drama Leonie.

Update: Now it looks as if fellow Mad Man hottie, January Jones, is heading to the big screen – more here (she should really do her jacket up).

Here is a pic of Hendricks at the 2010 Golden Globes. Check out the winners.

Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen, 2009 – Movie Review

Posted by LiveFor on June 25, 2009


Director: Michael Bay
Starring: Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel, John Turturro, Tyrese Gibson
Running Time: 150 minutes
Score: 6.5 / 10

This review by Jinja. Spoilers ahead….

What’s it about?

IMDB blurb: “Decepticon forces return to Earth on a mission to take Sam Witwicky prisoner, after the young hero learns the truth about the ancient origins of the Transformers. Joining the mission to protect humankind is Optimus Prime, who forms an alliance with international armies for a second epic battle.”

Was it good / bad?

I probably didn’t do myself any favours by watching the first one the night before seeing the sequel. But I did have my expectations very low due to a couple of friends mentioning their disappointment.

+ The CG again was phenomenal – but, I said this first time round, the transformations were overly complex.
+ The eye-candy in this movie was spectacular.
+ Giant transforming robots fighting!

– Unfortunately I think the CG is also what totally overpowered the flick.
– The story was overly ambitious and complex – not for the younger audience.
– There was unnecessary language, that again I wouldn’t be overly comfortable with my 10 year old nephew hearing.
– Some gratuitous shots of Megan Fox and Isabel Lucas – now don’t get me wrong I enjoy the sight of an attractive woman, but the bit with Megan Fox painting the bike at the beginning was ludicrous!
– Slow-mo overload!
– A robot that transforms into a human!?
– Way way to long.

Just another thought what happened to the characters played by Anthony Anderson and Rachael Taylor?

Coolest / worst scene?

Coolest scenes were Optimus going berserk (on a few occasions) on decepticons and BumbleBee kicking ass.

Worst, the ridiculous geography that goes on at the end. One minute they are at the pyramids in Cairo, then the adventure takes them to Petra in Jordan. Then from Petra they see the military parachute out and land near the pyramids…and within minutes they are driving to meet up with them (I know I’ve seriously paraphrased that). Now Cairo and Petra are around 251.1 miles (give or take) apart. Sorry no, that last part of the film all took place within the same ‘evening’ – I know this is a film about alien life-forms that transform from giant robots into vehicles but come on. There wasn’t even a mention of the fact Israel even existed between Egypt and Jordan.

The Robots – What about the robots?

The twins were initially annoying, the half way through they were annoying and by the end you had enough of them as they were annoying and you hope the devastator kills them! A pair of street jive idiot punks, mildly ammusing but generally annoying – did I say that already?

The return of Megatron – acceptable, was expecting the whole cargo ship to transform rather than just the five overly suspiscious vehicles on-board. Unfortunately too many bad guys leaders, Megatron, StarScream and the Fallen, wanting screen time.

Soundwave – good idea as the satellite, but where was the voice!?

The Devastator – the biggest overly complex transform of the lot. Was just too big.

The Fallen – a lazy bugger who’d been hanging out on one of Jupiters moons for the past 17,000 years.

Did you laugh / cry / cover your eyes / walk out?

Laugh – yes, some very funny bits especially John Turturros paranoia and still some of the ‘aliens out of place on earth’ moments.

Cry – not even with laughter.

Cover my eyes – followed by a shaking head of disapproval at some of the continuity errors and pretty much the whole last half hour.

Walk-out – I didn’t walk out of Vertical Limit (my current leader of absolute chod movies) so wouldn’t walk out on this – worth staying for the visuals.

Anything we should watch out for?

You may miss it near the beginning, but the bit of an argument in China between the army and couple of Transformers. The governments manage to cover up the whole thing as a little earthquake or something…its complete and total destruction of downtown Shanghai!!! (BTW yes sarcasm set to very much high on that comment)

Why should we see / avoid it?

Big robots, lots of fighting, CG overload – your choice.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen will be bigger and longer on IMAX

Posted by LiveFor on June 8, 2009

Director Michael Bay made an announcement about his upcoming Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, including details surrounding finishing the film, the scale of the project, and what the IMAX version will offer. Here is what he had to say:

Hey everyone,

In Japan today. After a month and half seven days a week most days going till midnight me and my crew have just about finished Transformers. I have never seen such a level of dedication from every crew member in a movie before.

Even today after the press in Japan and right before the premiere tonight, I have to sneak out to a digital house to approve the last few effect shots.

It has been a long hard road, but really fun one to travel. What you will notice that is strikingly different than Transformers 1, is the level of animation detail. The robot characters (42 in all), you really can feel empathy for them. What is also very different is the sheer scale of the movie. We have been very tight holding back much of the best imagery in commercials and trailers.

The way to see this movie is on IMAX. Never before has there been 4k rendered character animation shot on full IMAX 70 mm film. This is a first and the results are stunning. You will see Optimus Prime in a few shots where he is actually perfectly to scale on the IMAX 50 foot tall screens.

For IMAX, I created a slightly longer cut with more robot fighting. Four scenes were shot on IMAX cameras so the screen will fill the full IMAX screen for these scenes.

Haters beware.

Michael

Starring Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, John Turturro, Isabel Lucas, Rainn Wilson, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen opens in theaters on 24th June.

UPDATED: Hugo Weaving is back in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen…Agent Smith…I mean, Megatron can’t be far behind

Posted by LiveFor on March 5, 2009

Hugo Weaving has proven that one more piece of the news that Michael Bay has “confirmed” about Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is false – namely that Megatron wouldn’t be appearing in the film. Weaving, who was promoting his film Last Ride, told the Australian site AdelaideNow that he would, indeed, be in the sequel film.

“I’ve already done it,” Weaving says, adding Bay had told him to keep the news hush-hush. “He’s over in LA and we were working on the video split sort of thing and I had this strange conversation where he seemed to imply it was all a big secret. So there you go. I’ve given you the secret scoop.”

Weaving was not, however, willing to reveal the secret as to how the Decepticon leader would be resurrected, but he did give a hint. “I think in the last one, doesn’t Optimus Prime pick up a little bit of, a little shard of the cube, or the thing that’s left, and he takes it with him. Maybe there’s something there… but I don’t know,” the actor laughed.

In Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen, Optimus Prime and the rest of the Autobots return for the live action follow up to Michael Bay’s 2007 blockbuster Transformers, nationwide on June 24. Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, John Turturro, Isabel Lucas, Rainn Wilson star.

UPDATE: (3/5/08 1:45 PM PST) Director Michael Bay has also confirmed the return of Megatron on his official website. Take a look at the brief post from the director, posted earlier today, below.

Okay cat is out of the bag. Megatron is back —- but you will only get to see him from the long lost past. We go way back in time as this movie explains the mythology of the Primes. He is not a tank like everyone suggests, but an alien vehicle. But sadly he does not has much screen time.

UPDATE 06/03/09: However, looks like Bay may be being economical with the truth again. /film found the description on the packaging for Megatron’s Leader Class action figure contains the following description:

Rebuilt with parts cannibalized from other Decepticons, Megatron rises once again to lead his army. Though the AllSpark destroyed him once, he can now feel its power coursing through his circuitry. It calls him to seize his rightful place as ruler over the puny planet on which he was imprisoned and destroyed, and from which he will launch his conquest of the universe. Optimus Prime is all that stands between him and victory, and the Autobot leader has done a poor job of hiding himself. At long last, Megatron knows exactly where his enemy is, and he has power enough to destroy him.

Hmmm!
