Kelsey Grammer Explains A Deleted Scene From Transformers: Age Of Extinction

Posted on 08-16-2014 at 03:05 PM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
Harold-Attinger-Kelsey-Grammer-Transformers-4-Age-Of-Extinction-Michael-Bay 2014 is a great year for Kelsey Grammer. And he sat down with Yahoo to talk about it. This is what he had to say about Transformers: Age Of Extinction

Grammer had to leave the Transformers set to film his Expendables role but said, “Michael Bay was cool about it.” Like Stallone, Bay was also cool about line changes, telling him at one point, “You’re Kelsey Grammer. You can do whatever you want.”

Grammer’s most physical action scene involved throwing a Chinese man out of a car. It was eventually cut, though Grammer explained that Bay isn’t entirely to blame. “It was very violent, and it looked very violent.… Apparently the Chinese government had some input on these things, and they just didn’t want to see a Chinese national get thrown out of the car [laughs] — and then subsequently run over.”

Grammer got a glimpse of the Bay method during the shooting of one action scene as Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, and Jack Reynor were given a shock to the system by the infamously precocious director. “They start running, and Michael did not let them know how big the explosions were going to be. He said to me, ‘Watch this! Look! They’re really terrified. Look how fast they’re running!’”

Michael Bay To Handover The Transformers Movies To A New Director?

Posted on 08-09-2014 at 10:56 AM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
Transformers-5-Michael-Bay We know, we know… this is a conversation that is happening almost all the time. But is Michael Bay really handing over the Transformers Movies to a new Director this time? During an interview with USA Today, the director; whose latest Transformers movie made $1 Billion at the Box-Office, hinted that he is moving ahead with new projects.

This is what USA Today has to say…

Bay is delving further into TV with both Last Ship and Starz's Black Sails, which kicked off in January and has filmed its second season. The hands-on producer keeps track of multiple projects from his high-tech screening room in.

"Literally, it looks like NASA mission control,'' he says. "I am always loaded with what's going on. I like to keep my eyes on everything."

The Bay streak continues with the horror film Ouija (out Oct. 24)and sci-fi thriller Project Almanac (Jan. 30, 2015), both of which he produced, and he's working on another undisclosed TV project. Bay, 49, believes he will pass the baton for future Transformer movies to a new director while he turns his focus elsewhere.

"There's kind of a new chapter, a new direction in movies I want to make," says Bay, who is eyeing a passion project, a documentary on elephant poaching. "I have a lot of stories to tell. And it's about flexing new muscles."

Recently, Paramount extended their deal with Michael Bay for another 3 years. But we do not know what role he will play in future Transformers movies.

Takara Tomy Movie Advanced EX Wheeljack In-Hand

Posted on 08-07-2014 at 01:17 PM by Jacer under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
10506563_4567143353843_3768433868043469996_o A user over at the Transformers Addicts Facebook group page posted a couple in-hand images of the upcoming EX Wheeljack. This Wheeljack is a repaint of the cancelled movie All-Stars Wheeljack with a more G1 accurate paint scheme on his hood. Sadly this Wheeljack does not appear to have any weapons, much like Dark Side Soundwave.

Transformers: Lost Age Interviews - Drift, The Franchise And More

Posted on 08-07-2014 at 11:43 AM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
Transformers-Age-of-Extinction-Premiere-in-Tokyo_4_2 Transformers: Lost Age (Japanese movie release of Transformers: Age Of Extinction) is out now in Japan.

Japan Times has published an article today where director Michael Bay explains Autobot Drift and more.

"You put a medieval knight in front of the camera and it now looks (a bit) cliched, it looks outdated," Michael Bay says. "But the samurai look, of course we know it’s historical yet it looks so modern."

"You look at some of the older Japanese movies with samurai characters in them and you can visualize them as robotic," he says. "They look . . . streamlined, mechanical and practical."

The director also talked about the Franchise:

"I understand the need to draw an audience of kids and the global considerations, but I wanted to be involved with something that had a longer-lasting, even cerebral appeal. And I don’t want to be tied — artistically or in people’s minds — to ‘Transformers’ after ‘Transformers,’ " Bay says, perhaps alluding to the series’ planned fifth installment.

Paramount Extends Michael Bay Deal For Another Three Years

Posted on 08-01-2014 at 12:45 AM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
Michael-Bay-Transformers-Paramount-Fifi The Wrap reports that Paramount Pictures has extended their deal with Director Michael Bay for another three years.

“With an ever-growing, worldwide fan base, Michael is truly one of the most inspired and beloved filmmakers of our time,” said Brad Grey, Paramount chairman and CEO. “We take great pride in the fact that Michael is part of the Paramount family and we look forward to growing our productive and successful partnership.”

This news should come as no surprise since his latest movie Transformers: Age Of Extinction is on the verge of breaking US$ 1 Billion mark on the Worldwide Box-Office.

“Over the years I have become part of the Paramount family,” Bay enthused in a press release. “There is a synergy there that feels different than any other place in Hollywood. From Brad Grey and Rob Moore, where my relationship goes back more than a decade, to my very good friend Adam Goodman, and to Philippe Dauman, who has put so much trust in me, and with the powerful marketing of Josh Greenstein and Megan Colligan, Paramount makes for a very comfortable place to work.”

However, whether he will return to the Transformers Director Chair is still yet to be determined.

The news post image is from the Director himself. This is how he introduced his new pet cat; Fifi to the world. Coming from Mr. Bay, we wouldn't have expected anything else.

How Hasbro Decides Which Toys They Will Turn Into Movies

Posted on 07-16-2014 at 10:33 AM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
hasbro-toys Business Insider has posted an interesting article explaining how Hasbro decides which toys it will turn into movies and the profit they get in return.

With several more brands set to get the movie treatment in the next few years, we spoke with Hasbro Chief Marketing Officer John Frascotti to find out exactly how the company selects which of its toy lines get adapted to the big screen and how you can possibly turn a board game into a movie.

"We look for those brands that have story and character at their foundation because inevitably for any type of storytelling format, whether it's a movie, a television show, a digital comic ... it has to have great story and great characters at it's foundation," says Frascotti.

All together, the "Transformers" franchise has brought in more than $2.5 billion worldwide. The two "G.I. Joe" movies combined have generated more than $600 million at the box office.

According to Reuters, it's low risk strategy for Hasbro. The toy company pays around $1 million to develop script ideas and if a studio wants to go through with a film, Hasbro gets paid back the developing fee. After the film is in theaters, Hasbro reportedly receives 5% of the money a studio makes from theaters.

The article also states that following the success of the Transformers and other Hasbro brand movies, movies based on Jem And The Holograms, Magic the Gathering and Ouija are on their way to the Big Screen. You can read more at the Business Insider.

Transformers Age of Extinction and director Michael Bay hit key milestones

Posted on 07-08-2014 at 04:07 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
MB-on-Dolly A double-whammy of news comes to us with regards to the performance of Transformers Age of Extinction. There is a lot of excited buzz over both the movie and director Michael Bay hitting some key milestones.

Transformers: Age of Extinction, it has been reported, has overtaken James Cameron's Avatar to become the biggest grossing movie in China, ever! This figure is slightly disputed - some sources claim the milestone was hit on Sunday, while the tally others are keeping suggests the movie came close but has not quite surpassed Avatar at that time. In either case, it is an incredible achievement for the fourth live-action big screen outing of the Transformers! Credit for this news item goes to Hollywood Reporter.

Transformers: Age of Extinction now the highest grossing movie ever in China

Transformers: Age of Extinction continues to perform strongly at the US box office and has earned an impressive $180,166,140 as of July 7th, 2014. Box Office Mojo also reports that international takings add up to $412,000,000, with more than half of that figure coming from China. As you might see from their chart, though, some figures have not yet been updated for the past weekend, and crucially some of the European opening weekends, such as the UK, are not yet represented. Of note is that Deadline reports Transformers: Age of Extinction has the third greatest opening in Korea, but that the movie there is performing slightly less strongly than Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

Last but by no means least, Transformers: Age of Extinction marks an important milestone in the career of its director Michael Bay. The film's gross over the weekend has seen Michael Bay overtake Robert Zemeckis to become the second highest grossing director of all time, right behind Transformers live action movie series executive producer Steven Speilberg. Check out the full announcement on Michael Bay's official website.

Congratulations from all of us here at TFW2005 to Michael Bay and the crew who made Transformers: Age of Extinction possible!
