Pain And Gain Trailer

Now before we all jump on Michael Bay for making nothing but awful movies, lets remember he directed The Rock, Bad Boys, and one of my favorite action movies of all time, Bad Boys II.  I like that with Pain and Gain he’s getting back to telling a smaller story (by his standards) and it’s set in the 90’s, a time he knows extremely well having been a music video director.

His leads are Mark Wahlberg, Anthony Mackie, and The Rock playing a bunch of juiced-up gym rats.  I’m sold on that alone.

See for yourself:

TransFOURmers Casting

Mark Wahlberg has agreed to star in the rebootquel of the Transformers franchise.  According to Michael Bay, he listened to internet speculation and decided to make a run at getting Mark Wahlberg.  It paid off.  The Shia-less sequel has been said to be a shift in the franchise from being a human story with robots in it, to being more focused on the robots.  By removing Shia, I am hopeful that we get a more serious in tone film about toy robots.  Yea I just said that.

Transformers 4 is scheduled for release June 27th, 2014, assuming the world doesn’t end.
