Michael Bay Announces Transformers 3

1 10 2009


In a post on his official forum, director Michael Bay announced today that a story had been completed for Transformers 3 and it is going into development for a Summer 2011 release. Bay had previously said he wanted to work on smaller projects like Pain and Gain before jumping back into another Transformers sequel but something (read, studios) got him to change his tune, and shooting is likely to start on the project sometime next year.

With their back and forth in the media there has been some discussion of whether Megan Fox would return for a third film, but the director seemingly answered that as well. Read the rest of this entry »

Does Anyone Actually Trust The British Tabloids?

26 08 2009

When I worked in London, I quickly became cognizant of the fact that British tabloids lack a certain credibility factor in all of their reporting, largely because of a lack of oversight. Normally, when I see reports coming out of The Daily Mail or The Sun, I am quick to dismiss them as they are usually completely bogus. For example, a report from The Sun last year said that Eddie Murphy would be playing the Riddler and Shia LaBeouf would be playing Robin in Christopher Nolan’s sequel to The Dark Knight (this is the stuff of nightmares). Meanwhile, in reality, the idea of a third Batman movie from Christopher Nolan isn’t even absolute yet. So what have the come up with this time? Read the rest of this entry »

Trailer: Inception (Teaser)

24 08 2009

InceptionAfter viewing the preview of Avatar and quickly rushing to the screening of Inglourious Basterds, I had entirely forgotten the awesome trailers that were promised. Many we had already seen, including Avatar and The Wolf Man, but what I had completely spaced on was the new Christopher Nolan film Inception.

Just like the teaser from The Dark Knight, the trailer doesn’t shed much light on what actually occurs in the film, but it does provide some incredible visuals and builds anticipation for both a full trailer and the film, which is due out next summer. Check it out after the jump and head over to the film’s homepage where you can play with a spinning top (woo!) Read the rest of this entry »

DIY: Tumbler Go-Kart

13 08 2009

batmantumblergokartI have seen people that have built their own full-size Tumbler’s before (we’re talking Batman here, people. Catch up), but now we have a guy who has modded a go-kart to be a mini-Tumbler that you can drive around suburban streets or use to kill yourself on a highway!

YouTube user “tully712” decided to say, “what the hell” and make a tumbler of his very own, but, for one reason or another, decided to go small. Admitedly, it is a bit strange that his head pops out of the top while driving it, but it is still cooler than anything I own. Check out the video after the jump, which also advertises how you can build your own. By buying plans from him! Woohoo! Vroom Vroom. Read the rest of this entry »

Marvel Making Iron Man and Wolverine Anime; Teaser Trailers Up

30 07 2009


Before The Dark Knight came out last summer, Warner Brothers did a brilliant thing: to explain what occurred between the first and second film, they made an anime cartoon that filled the gaps, giving loyal Batman fans something to wet their palate before the summer blockbuster. What they made, Batman: Gotham Knight, was fantastic in its structure, visuals and storytelling. The best part about it was that they got Kevin Conroy, the voice of Batman from the groundbreaking 1990’s animated series, to provide Batman’s voice, which is nothing short of iconic.

Working off this same idea, Marvel has announced that they will be making Iron Man and Wolverine animes and have released two teaser trailers, which I will look at separately:
