[[wysiwyg_imageupload:18419:]]

Mark Wahlberg reveals he will be back for the fifth Transformers installment and says he thinks filming will happen soon.

Wahlberg spoke with MTV promoting his latest movie, The Gambler, where he was asked about T5.

“I’m committed to doing a couple more,” he said. “I can’t speak for Mr. Bay, but something tells me we’ll be on the set soon.”

Wahlberg was featured in Transformers: Age Of Extinction, with the movie making over a billion dollars at the box office.

T4 not only featured the Dinobots, but also left it open for a certain villain to return.

The Gambler has a December 25, 2014 release.

Paramount Wants Transformers: Age Of Extinction To Win Oscar

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:18199:]]

It’s that time of the year when movie studios recommend what they feel are their Oscar contenders to the Academy.

Well, Paramount seems to feel strongly about Transformers: Age Of Extinction, which made over a billion dollars at the box office.

Actually, Paramount feels so strongly about the movie that they have recommended Transformers: Age Of Extinction to be nominated in just about every Oscar category —  including Best Picture Of The Year and Best Director for Michael Bay.

I know the movie has been taking flak online, but as I have only recently seen the movie, I really liked it and felt it might have been the best Transformers movie to date (at least the second best following the first). Of course, I knew going in that the Dinobots weren’t prominently featured, so my expectations regarding that really weren’t high.

While I felt the movie wasn’t perfect – too long and some of the supporting cast weren’t up to par – I liked the story, action and felt Mark Wahlberg did a good job and fit right in within the Transformers universe.

Megan Fox Says To Bleep Off If You Don’t Like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:16669:]]

Megan Fox has a message for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fanboys, and it is if you don’t like the movie, well too bad.

At a press conference, Megan Fox compared the TMNT fanboy outrage to that of the recent Transformers: Age Of Extincion.

“Let me tell you something about those people,” she said during the Los Angeles event on Friday (via CinemaBlend). “How much money did ‘Transformers 4′ make? Exactly. Those people can complain. They all go to the theater. They’re gonna love it and if they don’t love it, they can f–ck off. And that’s the end of that.”

Transformers 4 has made over a billion dollars at the box office, but has been the worst reviewed movies of the franchise by both critics and audiences alike. It also currently has the year’s best opening (but not without some controversy).

How well will Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles do? That remains to be seen, but the movie does open on Friday.

“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” has an August 8, 2014 release directed by Jonathan Liebesman, produced by Michael Bay starring Megan Fox as April O’Neil, William Fichtner as Shredder, Pete Ploszek as Leonardo, Alan Ritchson as Raphael, Jeremy Howard as Donatello, Noel Fisher as Michelangelo, Will Arnett as Vernon Fenwick, and Whoopi Goldberg as Bernadette Thompson.

Synopsis:

The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan.

Paramount Reportedly Lying About Transformers: Age Of Extinction Box Office Results

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:16045:]]

It’s being stated that Paramount is lying about the box office results for Transformers: Age Of Extinction.

According to Deadline, Transformers 4 didn’t make it to the $100 million mark, but just short at around $97 million.

Industry insiders are stating that Paramount is intentionally fudging the numbers.

“They’re lying,” said one distribution head at a major studio. 

Said another, “I don’t get get it.  Is it just arrogance? What is the point of inflating your box office numbers? So they can claim the first $100M movie opening of the year? Oh please, who cares? It’s a great opening anyway.”

One distribution executive put it this way, “Looking at Rentrak, at this time the average for the three-days is $22.964M, representing a total gross for three days of $97.76M. Rentrak collected 97% of the grosses for the three days.  In my humble opinion, it would be impossible for $100M to be reported.”

It’s further suggested that Paramount stretched the numbers to avoid layoffs at the company, as apparently if T4 didn’t gross $100 million in its opening, employees were to be let go.

Paramount, however, has replied stating their numbers are correct.

“We reported our number based on the estimates we received from the theaters this morning. This is our final number,” said a Paramount spokeswoman. $100.038M? “Yes.”

The $97 million would still give Transformers: Age Of Extinction the best opening of the year, surpassing April’s Captain America 2 with $95 million.

Transformers: Age Of Extinction On Track For Biggest Opening Of The Year

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:16017:]]

Michael Bay may have done it again with Transformers: Age Of Extinction as the fourth installment in the franchise is set to blow up the box office.

T4 netted $41.6 million at Friday, including $8.75 million from Thursday advanced screenings.

It’s estimated that Transformers: Age Of Extinction could have a $100 million opening, which would give it the best of the year, surpassing Captain America 2 ($95 million).

As it stands, the film is getting a ton of negative reviews. The movie review site Rotten Tomatoes has Transformers: Age Of Extinction with only 18% positive critic ratings and 65% audience approval.

Our own review basically states it’s more of the same, but it’s always cool to see Transformers on the big screen.

We also have a cool interview up with Mark Ryan, the voice of Lockdown.

Review: Transformers: Age Of Extinction (2014)

A Decent Transformers Movie?  Maybe This is Why Shia Got Himself Arrested Last Thursday

A Film Review of Transformers: Age of Extinction

 

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:16013:]]

Michael Bay has a very acute style of filmmaking which has seen financial success and increased visibility with his helming of the Transformer movie adaptations.  Like it or not, his style has delivered predictably reliable profit to the Hollywood machine and the Age of Extinction will more than likely, be no exception.  Explosions, loud noises, oversaturated colors, annoying comic relief, women as mindless sex objects and what seems to be the same exact chord progression in every overture of every single Michael Bay film are rinsed and repeated.  Personally, I haven’t been too keen on these films primarily because they have basically been the same movies with the same bad guys enacting the same plots and woefully misplacing far too much importance on the human characters of every cast.  If nothing has really changed, then why on Earth would I find any improvement now?  The answer begins with the absence of Shia Labeouf’s Sam Witwicky, his ridiculous parents and his cosmically improbable girlfriends.  Bay may have been trading away a numbskull for a meathead in Marky Mark, but at least Wahlberg gives the audience something different to (possibly) roll their eyes at as we patiently await the Transformers to come back on the screen.  In a sea of similarity, ANY difference is a good thing.

Screenwriter Ehren Kruger returns to deliver a story that once again pays mere lip service to a rich Transformer mythos from the comics and animated series in favor of yet another derivative tale of “Transformers are cool pets for humans, oh wait they’re headed right for us, we gotta blow them up, yada, yada yada.”  If any of that sounds familiar, it should because it’s the same plot of the last two Transformer sequels for which Kruger is also responsible for.  Talk about a well oiled machine, despite a retooled cast and Autobots we’ve never seen before, Kruger is able to carbon copy a tried-and-true Transformer tale as if he were simply swapping out defective gears, shafts and valves.  I was perturbed by how Kruger introduces and utilizes the Dinobots.  First, don’t hold your breath folks because they don’t appear until very late in the film.  Second, some of them are dino-remixes of the classic forms fans may be familiar with and third, none of them are referred to by their proper names so if you’re waiting for someone to yell Grimlock, Snarl, Slag, Sludge or Swoop, expect disappointment.  One other thing about the story worth mentioning is a conscious choice regarding the evolution of the most important character of this franchise: Optimus Prime.  The years spent on Earth have yielded constant battle for the Autobot Leader and frustration is not only understandable, it is expected.  However, I have never seen Optimus Prime depicted with such darkness that I started feeling uncomfortable with his new attitude.  I’ve never heard Prime say the word “kill” as often and with such ferocity.

Action, effects and computer graphics are what Transformer films are all about.  They are the reason these films still retain summer blockbuster entertainment value which yields the kinds of dollars these films are made for in the first place.  For the life of me, I still cannot understand why none of the Transformers use energy-based weapons (as opposed to projectiles requiring bullets for instance), but rest easy knowing that there are plenty of ballistics, big guns and missiles riddling the screen at every turn.  I like how the camera doesn’t push in too close during the marquee action sequences, thus allowing the audience to fully appreciate the scale of the destruction.  I also enjoyed the aerial action which naturally features a multitude of dynamic angles, but also strikes a good balance with slow motion effects to maximize satisfaction without abusing it (typically another staple of Michael Bay productions).  Of course, I can’t discuss the eye candy without talking about the giant f’ing robots themselves who, by the way, still look so great that the audience is left wondering why anyone would want to cut away from them for any reason.  Autobot Hound is one of the standouts as his digital render obviously channels the real life human who voices him, John Goodman.  The Dinobots are intimidating in both robot and animal forms as their sizes may not be precisely to scale in reference to Optimus Prime, but they are noticeably larger, which makes sense seeing how they’re robotic dinosaurs.  It’s too bad Devastator was already disposed of in these films because I’d love to see the Dinobots take him on.  Maybe we could see Bruticus in the sequel?

The only real performance that matters in this film and every other live action Transformer adaptation is that of Peter Cullen and his legendary, lifelong, vocal performance of Optimus Prime.  Despite turning 74 this coming July 28th, Cullen’s unique voice retains the chivalrous charm fans of the animated Prime have always enjoyed to the point where we can feel the honor in the air whenever he speaks a word.  Cullen is called upon to produce more anger and aggression for this Prime than any other performance in his career, but the sheer sincerity in his voice continues to produce a transcendent experience.  Mark Wahlberg does another fine job performing as Mark Wahlberg, er … Cade Yeager, a Texas roughneck who struggles to make a living as an independent robotics engineer because in a reality where Transformers are walking the Earth, everyone and their mother is apparently better at building and programming robots than Marky Mark.  (Sigh)  Stanley Tucci does a fine job by filling the role of the charming comic relief, Joshua Joyce, which is most welcome seeing how the idiotic comic relief is thankfully eradicated earlier in the film.  Kelsey Grammer is a fine villain with his performance as Harold Attinger, but this is thanks mostly to his dulcet tones and less for his “physicality.”  Jack Reynor plays the character type Shia Labeouf used to, and Nicola Peltz plays the token sex appeal Megan Fox formerly represented in a movie franchise that’s really supposed to be about giant, transforming robots that happen to be alive.

2014 has not been a particularly effective year for a number of blockbusters to at least meet the hype that pumped them up in the first place.  In terms of raw action, even the Age of Extinction doesn’t come close to the action intensity of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but even Transformers walking down the street on film is more interesting than a majority of what Hollywood produces, and this is why there appears to be no end in sight for this franchise with or without Michael Bay.  Anyone with the team of digital artists and animators behind the CG magic of making the Transformers real with VO talent like Peter Cullen can make hundreds of millions of dollars leading a Transformer production.  There is a clear lead-in to another sequel, but there’s nothing to suggest that such a film would be a departure from everything we’ve seen thus far, until those pesky humans get cut loose from the plot entirely.  Despite it all, Age of Extinction, though far from a perfect production is entertaining enough for a standard admission.  Don’t even think about shelling out extra for IMAX or Real 3D admission because the 3D conversion is just plain irrelevant – waste of time, waste of money.  Trust me, Wahlberg’s deer-in-the-headlights face is far less annoying than Labeouf’s “no, no, no, no, no!”

Exclusive: Mark Ryan Talks Transformers: Age of Extinction Lockdown & More

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:15994:]]

Michael Bay’s next blockbuster hit, Transformers: Age Of Extinction, introduces an enigmatic intergalactic Transformer bounty hunter by the name of Lockdown.

Not much is known about the character, so Cosmic Book News went straight to the source and caught up with Mark Ryan, who lends his voice to Lockdown.

Mark Ryan is a veteran actor and voice actor having played parts in Robin Hood, the new Starz series Black Sails, and Ryan previously voiced Transformer characters for Michael Bay including Jetfire and Bumblebee.

Mark Ryan shares his thoughts on Lockdown, the voice acting process, Black Sails and more.

Cosmic Book News: Regarding Lockdown, what did you think when you were asked to voice the role? Was it an immediate “yes” because you worked with Michael Bay before or did you need to know details about the character and script?

Mark Ryan: It usually starts onset as the script elements are revealed during shooting. I try various voices as we run the dialogue during filming knowing some will be discarded or covered by various other V/O actors in post-production. But it gives me chance to throw in a wild card and try something new and previously unheard in the franchise. Michael will sometimes ask for something more aggressive or something with a specific sound or accent if he has a particular character aspect in mind. This process is a lot of fun and we play around with a lot of vocal tones even in post. In that post process I usually do a scratch-track for editing purposes and sometimes a voice from the set will stick in Michael’s head. This time I’m happy to say it was Lockdown![[wysiwyg_imageupload:15995:]]

Cosmic Book News: How would you describe Lockdown?

Mark Ryan: As Michael has stated previously I think Lockdown is a very interesting, mysterious and complex character. He roams the galaxy freely and is focused and dispassionate about his mission. He doesn’t really want to take sides at all and to him it’s all just business. He has absolutely no interest in the future fate of humanity whatsoever. Lockdown’s ship has epic history and there’s a lot of backstory about that ship and it’s origins in the Transformer’s mythos yet to be revealed.

Cosmic Book News: We recently got a listen to Lockdown in the “Villain” spot (see below) for Transformers: Age Of Extinction, how did you approach the character? How is approaching the voice of Lockdown different than your versions of Bumblebee and Jet Fire?

Mark Ryan: I decided to go for a more Hannibal Lecter/Anton Chigurh tone for Lockdown on the set. Very calm, amoral and sociopathic to match the dialogue, yet contrast the massive scene of mayhem and merciless carnage going on all around, and it stuck!

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:15997:]]

Cosmic Book News: Can you describe the process of recording the voice for Lockdown? Was Michael Bay present for direction? Did you record your scenes prior to filming, during production or post-production? Were any of the other actors present? Were you provided with any footage as a reference?

Mark Ryan: Michael is totally involved with every aspect of the V/O process throughout production and we usually work very closely together. It’s a very creative process and we have a lot of fun. During filming I get direction and cues from Michael as we’re riding the dialogue and camera moves. I’m usually watching Michael’s monitor and Amir’s to see the actor’s close-ups and where the cameras are going. I’m listening to the actors through a sound link and doing the dialogue through a radio-mic. It’s very live and kinetic. We’ve reworked and refined the actual “on-set” process quite a lot over the last seven years and have it down to a fine art now. Michael was very smart to have a live “reactive” element to the acting process on set, and I usually get to work with all of the actors during shooting. I have spoken to other pals working on CGI type projects and it’s one of the most difficult aspects, acting to a dead green screen or light-pole with no actor there to actually bounce dialogue and drama off. This onset flexibility gives him and the actors a chance to deliver lines with various emphases or pacing and keeps it spontaneous!

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:15996:]]

Cosmic Book News: What are your thoughts on voice acting compared to live acting?

Mark Ryan: I’ve been a Merry Man, and honorary Knight of the Round Table, a pirate quartermaster and several giant alien robots! That’s not counting the theatre roles I’ve played. Obviously there is a huge technical difference in both disciplines and both have their own artistic fulfillment aspect, as does sword choreography. They are all still part of the same dramatic process though, and I get tremendous satisfaction from all three mediums. I don’t think I’d swap with many folks. I did enjoy playing Gates very much as it was like slipping into a well-worn and comfortable pair of old boots. Very easy to step into and comfortable to wear. Again Michael Bay in the form of his production arm, Platinum Dunes, brought the scale, vision and VSFX to make the show epic and ground breaking. So Nasir and Gates come a very close second and third to being associated with Bumblebee, Jetfire, and Lockdown.

Cosmic Book News: You have a pretty long and varied resume before the Transformers franchise. So is there another project you’ve done that you perhaps wish more people would have seen, or that you think you did particularly well in?

Mark Ryan: Robin of Sherwood and Nasir was obviously a huge part of my life for the last 30 years and we just celebrated its anniversary with a huge gathering in Chepstow, South Wales where we filmed many scenes. RoS seems to have picked up a whole new following with a younger generation, as it’s still the definitive show about the Robin Hood legend. It was the launching pad for many careers both on and off the screen and started a whole new way of making TV. It was groundbreaking then and still holds up now in style and depth.

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:15998:]]

Cosmic Book News: We see you are also starring in the Starz series Black Sails, which is executive produced by Michael Bay. What can you tell us about the series and your character Gates?

Mark Ryan: Gates is a blue-collar guy who is in a position of power with the crew. In those days, it was very democratic onboard ship. The pirates could vote people in and out of office, including the captain. So Gates is juggling all of these different cultural, racial and spiritual elements within the crew, and trying to focus that energy to put it behind Flint. The role offered a whole array of different facets to a character that Gates has to have. You have to be funny; you have to be charming; you have to be able to be a disciplinarian. You have to understand different cultures and the drives of human beings.

When I read the part, I realized straight away that I knew this man and I knew this character. Jon Steinberg and I were just chatting and he was telling me a little bit about the show, and he said, “Now, will you tell me what you know about this character?” And I said, “I know this character because I’ve done this job.” I was a non-commissioned officer in the British Army and their role as middle management is to take orders from the office and get the men to carry them out, sometimes in dangerous and nasty situations. I said, “The officers give the orders, but it’s the sergeants mess that carries them out and makes things happen.” And he went, “I get it, that’s the character.”

I think Jon [Steinberg] also said something that was very insightful and interesting; he said, “Everybody thinks they know this universe, the pirate universe.” But really what you get is either a cartoony sort of history, or a false idea of what it was like because of the pirate films of the ’30s and ’40s — whereas the history is very different, and actually much more interesting and intriguing.

The background to how the pirates became pirates and outlaws, it’s fascinating in itself. The period is at the turning point of upheavals where it’s not long before the American Revolution; it’s not long before the French Revolution. It’s not long before the British Navy basically becomes the commanding force on the surface of the planet. But the pirates were rebelling against all of that traditional and royal control and against households and corruption. They were the privateers originally hired by the royal household to fight on behalf of their country, and were then outlawed by the very people who had hired them. The privateers felt their own country and their rulers had betrayed them.

The production built one full size boat and a half a ship, so you could see into the decks. They were fully rigged with gun decks and storage areas. It was quite an amazing set to work on. It was in a couple of acres of water that were fifteen feet deep. The town itself, Nassau, where a lot of the action takes place looks amazing. Whichever way you look you see pirate camps, brothels, taverns, storehouses, and we had the fort. You were literally in that universe with a beach and the water and the waves. And that’s what you expect from a Michael Bay show; production values that are rich, beautifully shot and on an epic scale.

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:15999:]]

Cosmic Book News: Care to share or tease anything else that might be coming up that you are involved with?

Mark Ryan: Watch Lockdown’s facial expressions. You might see a few piratical looks and a bit of familiar eyebrow acting thrown in there! I’m also looking at presenting a TV series about various historic, esoteric figures that’s in development and my biography will be released sometime in late July.

“Transformers: Age Of Extinction” is currently in theaters starring Mark Ryan as the voice of Lockdown; Catch Season 1 of “Black Sails” on Starz, with Season 2 coming soon.
