Latest ‘Transformers’ Trailer Is Everything You Could Ask For In A Summer Blockbuster

Say what you will about Michael Bay and his Transformers series, but when it comes to big budget summer action no franchise has been more consistent in delivering mind-boggling visuals wrapped around razor thin plots than the adventures of Optimus Prime and the people who aide him in connecting with residents of Earth. The latest entry, Age Of Extinction, looks to up the ante in every way, including the addition of Mr. Pain & Gain, Mark Wahlberg.

Early this morning a new trailer for Transformers: Age Of Extinction debuted online following a week of heavy promotion. The clip …

Imagine Dragons Contribute To ‘Transformers: Age Of Extinction,’ New Trailer Available

Following a very successful 2013, Imagine Dragons have remained largely quiet regarding plans for new material. Today however, that all changed when the band announced the contribution of a new original song to Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age Of Extinction.

Following an early footage screening of the film, Imagine Dragons wrote the original song “Battle Cry,” which Bay used in critical points in the film. Additionally, the band contributed original music during the scoring process by recording cues with Jablonsky, the film’s composer, and Hans Zimmer, who assisted in the process. The collaboration resulted in added depth to the sound …

The cast of Entourage will present the award to Wahlberg, whose life the show was based on.

Watch Mark Wahlberg Threaten One Direction On ‘Conan’

You have to wonder if Mark Wahlberg was kidding or dead serious when he told Conan O’Brien this week that he had plans to “beat the crap” out of One Direction.

First off, he wasn’t just casually mentioning this. It came up that the Lone Survivor star’s daughters are huge Directioners (yeah, I’m old and know the lingo). His youngest especially loves Harry Styles, so the loving dad mentioned he wants to eventually let his daughters meet the British boy band, but making their little dreams come true isn’t the only reason why.…

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Lone Survivor’

Film: Lone Survivor
Starring: Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch
Director: Peter Berg
Writers: Peter Berg, Marcus Luttrell, Patrick Robinson

Peter Berg is a bit of a mystery. On one hand he will direct a great film like Friday Night Lights. That film was a moving story about a side of high school football that a lot of people were unaware of. On the other hand he will make a Battleship or Hancock. Those movies are standard Hollywood filler and are easily forgotten and routinely criticized. Now his newest film, Lone Survivor, is here and it is …

John Goodman To Collect From Mark Wahlberg In ‘Gambler’ Remake

I love John Goodman. Who doesn’t? From his years on television as the one and only Dan Connor, to his recent role in Inside Llewyn Davis, Goodman has proven to be a valuable addition to any cast. He does for drama and indie comedy what The Rock does for action or Bill Murray does for Wes Anderson, and today The Wrap is reporting he’s just signed on for a reboot of The Gambler.

Originally released in 1974 as a dramatic feature starring James Caan, The Gambler tells the story of a professor who gets in over his …

Mark Wahlberg Wants To Be Iron Man (And We’re Pretty Okay With It)

Dirk Diggler wants to be Tony Stark.

One of the keys to success in life is always having a goal to work towards, and for Mark Wahlberg one of those goals happens to be playing the role of Iron Man. Speaking with Yahoo! Movies recently, the Pain & Gain star who is currently filming Transformers 4 was asked if he wanted to play in comic book characters on the big screen. Wahlberg replied, “I would like to take over the ‘Iron Man’ franchise for Robert Downey, [but] it’s one of those things where I kind of like playing real people, …

DINOBOTS: Mark Wahlberg Adds Fuel To ‘Transformers 4′ Rumor

If gigantic space aliens who transform on a whim into stylish sports cars does not rev your engine for overblown CGI spectaculars, maybe the idea of gigantic space aliens transforming into robot dinosaurs will. No, I am not shitting you. This is a possible future, and so far things seem promising.

Back in May, news site JoBlo claimed to confirm the fourth Transformers movie will feature the fan-favorite Dinobots, otherwise known as characters who change into robotic dinosaurs as opposed to stylish vehicles. No one associated with the production would confirm or deny the rumors, and ever since reporters have …

MOVIE REVIEW: Pain & Gain

Movie: Pain & Gain
Director: Michael Bay
Writers: Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely
Studios: De Line Pictures, Platinum Dunes

Pain & Gain is a visually striking film with colorful characters, big action, and decent comedy that will leave you wanting a better workout for your brain.

Based on a true story. Those words seemed to be tagged on at the beginning of nearly every single movie these days. Slews of horror films are “based on a true story” and even last year’s best picture, Argo, was. So when you hear those words these days it is hard to get excited. …

BRING BACK THE 80s: Mark Wahlberg Would Reunite With The Funky Bunch To Benefit Boston Bombing Victims

Last month, TMZ gained a tiny of bit of traction running a story that The Funky Bunch would be willing to reunite with actor Mark Wahlberg in the future if he so desired. We didn’t run the story at the time because, to be honest, we didn’t necessarily find it surprising that a group who never took off without Marky Mark would be willing to welcome him back with open arms. That was, of course, before Wahlberg hinted that it could actually happen.

Leaving an appearance in Virginia earlier today, TMZ spoke with the Pain & Gain star briefly …

EDITORIAL: “Ted: How a Foul-Mouthed Teddy Bear Broke Box Office Records”

The man who made his name in raunchy comedy is once again laughing his way to the bank. Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane’s first motion picture, the R-rated Ted, opened to a stellar $54.1 million this weekend, exceeding studio expectations by $10-15 million. The result places the comedy, which finds tough guy Mark Wahlberg struggling to balance the challenges of adult life with the demands of his crude, talking teddy bear, in 8th place on the list of highest opening weekends for an R-rated flick. When sequels (Matrix Reloaded, Hangover II, Paranormal Activity 3, Hannibal) …
