With each film in the Transformer saga, Michael Bay makes it clear that all he's interested in are massive metallic special effects bashing into each other and usually exploding. Because otherwise this is a vacuous thriller without any characters to speak of, no sense of plot coherence and an appallingly simplistic sense of geography. There's plenty in this franchise to enjoy (just watch the original 2007 film again), but Bay takes everything so seriously that only die-hard fans will have any fun this time.
The story picks up five years after the cataclysmic Transformers' battle in Chicago, as Texas inventor and overprotective single dad Cade (Mark Wahlberg) builds gadgets in his rural barn, oblivious to the fact that his 17-year-old daughter Tessa (Nicola Peltz) is secretly seeing 20-year-old Shane (Jack Reynor). Luckily, Shane is a race driver, so he's handy to have around when black ops agents commanded by shadowy CIA director Attinger (Kelsey Grammer) raid Cade's farm looking for an old truck that turns out to actually be Optimus Prime in hiding. This sparks a return to Chicago for more mayhem, followed by a hop to Beijing and Hong Kong, where Optimus Prime and a handful of remaining good-guy Autobots take on the villainous Lockdown. Helped of course by Cade, Tessa and Shane, plus billionaire inventor Joshua (Stanley Tucci).
The new gimmick this time is dinosaurs, building on a prologue showing the real reason they went extinct. This comes back in the climactic battle in the form of Dinobots, ancient Transformers that will have fanboys squirming in their seats with joy while everyone else yawns and looks at their watches, astounded that Bay has somehow managed to stretch this paper-thin story out over nearly three hours of metal-on-metal chaos. As in the earlier films, the action is quite literally cartoonish, purely animated mayhem that's not easy to decipher. At least the humans help keep it vaguely approachable, as they provide running commentary in their dialogue and bounce through the air like plastic action figures who never get hurt.

Chinese profits are expected to come close to the US market this time around.
Transformers: Age of Extinction opens in Hong Kong today, after months of anticipation. Since the previous movies of the franchise performed so well on the Chinese market (which is now the second biggest film market in the world), Paramount Pictures are expecting to gain a sizeable advantage on release weekend, thanks to the early release in Hong Kong. Transformers will open in theatres worldwide one day later.
Clever marketing and strong ties to China are likely to give Transformers an edge on the market.
Age of Extinction has been courting the sizeable Chinese audience since its conception, hense it has a built-in advantage on the local market. It was shot in Hong Kong and three mainland cities including scenes at the Great Wall. Chinese actress Li Bingbing was cast in the film, and four smaller parts were filled by actors chosen from a Chinese TV reality show.
What are the early bird critics saying about Michael Bay's new action installment?
The release of Transformers: Age of Extinction is just days away in the USA, meaning fans of Michael Bay's franchise will soon be gingerly heading back into cinemas once more to see whether the new movie lives up to the hype.
Critics Haven't Trashed 'Transformers 4' But It Seems That, Like Its Predecessors, It's A Pretty Flawed Film.
After kicking off with 2007's Transformers, the (nevertheless commercially successful) franchise has suffered a decline in ratings with Bay's direction consistently caught in the crosshairs. In other words, there's a lot riding on film four, not least the filmmaker's reputation as he bows out of the sci-fi action movie series.

Miller, Jack Reynor and Titus Welliver. Peter Cullen will once again voice Optimus Prime.
Michael Bay reprised his role as director for this instalment of the franchise. The film is written by Ehren Kruger, who wrote the previous two Transformers films 'Revenge Of The Fallen' and 'Dark Of The Moon'. 'Age Of Extinction' also has the same producers as the previous three films Don Murphy, Tom DeSanto, Lorenzo Di Bonaventura and Ian Bryce.

Despite substandard animation, this brightly coloured sequel has a strong enough sense of both its story and characters to hold the audience's attention. And kids might not mind the quality, as they are re-introduced to classic characters in an all-new adventure based on the book Dorothy of Oz by Roger S Baum (great-grandson of L Frank).
It starts the morning after Dorothy (voiced by Lea Michele) gets back home to Kansas after her iconic adventure. Her panicky friends Scarecrow, Tinman and Lion (Dan Aykroyd, Kelsey Grammer and James Belushi) summon her back to Oz, where considerable time has passed while a crazed Jester (Martin Short) kidnaps good witch Glinda (Bernadette Peters) so he and his army of flying monkeys can launch their reign of terror. On her long journey back to Emerald City, Dorothy has a series of adventures with Wiser the owl (Oliver Platt), Marshal Mallow (Hugh Dancy), the China Princess (Megan Hilty) and the old tree Tugg (Patrick Stewart), who all help her take on the Jester.
Yes, the plot is rather simplistic (the Jester merely seems evil for evil's sake), but the real problem is that the animation is badly under-developed. Characters are painfully thin, with no gravity to them at all, which makes it impossible for them to properly interact visually. Fortunately there are some clever touches to the design work, such as the way everything in Oz looks battered and broken, which adds a badly needed dark edge to the otherwise sunny silliness.

Following the destruction caused by Optimus Prime's benign Autobots and, their nemeses, the evil Decepticons led by Megatron, the US government have decided to sever ties with the Autobots in a bid to reclaim their crumbling world. After a while, it seemed that they had indeed disappeared completely but Cade Yeager, a struggling inventor who is desperate to put his daughter Tessa through college, is about to make a discovery that would change his life forever when he uncovers the unusual metal properties of the new vehicle he has bought. It isn't long before the government and the Decepticons are swooping in on Cade's home, demanding to know where he is hiding Optimus Prime; America wants to destroy the living machines despite the Autobots past help, and the Decepticons simply want to destroy everything. If the humans want to survive, their old friends may be their only hope.
Barney Ross is the fearless leader of elite New Orleans mercenary team The Expendables who are still as active and formidable as ever despite the ever nearing limitations of age. And it seems those limitations could be closer than ever as they face their most serious challenge yet. When The Expendables' co-founder Conrad Stonebanks became engulfed in a world of crime and arms dealing, Barney made the difficult decision to kill his partner. However, it seems Stonebanks isn't as dead as Barney thought and he's now hellbent on ending The Expendables once and for all. With such a deadly threat facing them, the team decide to recruit; enlisting a younger, fitter and smarter group to join them and bring down their nemesis. With fresh blood and higher numbers, The Expendables are sure to succeed in their latest mission - but will age differences get in the way of their solidarity?
'The Expendables 3' introduces an extended, all star ensemble cast in the final instalment of 'The Expendables' move series. Directed by Patrick Hughes ('Red Hill') and co-written by Katrin Benedikt, Creighton Rothenberger ('Olympus Has Fallen'), Dave Callaham ('Doom') and star Sylvester Stallone ('Rambo'), the movie will be unveiled in UK cinemas on August 15th 2014.
It's been four years since the disastrous conflict between the benevolent Autobots, led by Optimus Prime, and the evil Decepticons, led by Megatron. Now, it appears that the US government is no longer willing to work alongside the Autobots and instead long for Earth to be reclaimed by mankind. Cade Yeager is an inventor who is struggling to find the money to get his daughter Tessa through college, but he's about to make the breakthrough of a lifetime when he discovers that a vehicle he has newly purchased is made from no ordinary metal. On realising that he is housing Optimus Prime in his workshop, the government and the Decepticons are quick to attack, though when it becomes clear that Megatron is still hellbent on taken over Earth, he must band together with Optimus to save themselves and everybody else on the planet from total extinction.

The actors will team up for the still-untitled comedy series, which is expected to air some time in 2014
FX have green-lit a new comedy series starring Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence, with the network announcing the news of the new series this Wednesday (June 19). The pair will star as two Chicago lawyers who, despite being poles-apart in their personal and professional life, develop the unlikeliest of friendships.
Like the Charlie Sheen series Anger Management and the planned George Lopez sitcom coming to the network soon, the series will follow the 10/90 rule that guarantees a series a 100-episode run, providing the first 10 episodes of the show are a hit. Again, like Anger Management, the series will also be produced at a speedy rate, ensuring the full set of 100 episodes are completed within a relatively short period of time between each other. The network will still air individual seasons at a conventional time, rather than airing all 100 episodes in one push.
The show will mark Lawrence's return to television on a regular basis for for the first time since his sitcom, Martin, ended in 1997. As for Grammer, whose most recent starring role in Staz's Boss has won him much acclaim, it will mark a welcomed return to comedy in general; his last comedic roles coming only briefly during 2012 when he played 'himself' on 30 Rock for two episode and reprised his role as Sideshow Bob on two episodes of The Simpson. Both actors are clearly excited to work with each other as well, with the Grammer and Lawrence each releasing gushing statements about their co-star following the announcement of the new series.

Kelsey Grammer will play a counter intelligence villain in Transformers 4.
Is Kelsey Grammer, the actor who played the affable Frasier Crane, set out for a world of villainy? Well, he'll have to start practising pretty soon after landing the role of the lead villain in Michael Bay's fourth Transformers movie. Grammer will play Harold Attinger, a counter intelligence guy, according to Deadline.com.
Though known for his comedy roles, Grammer did impress as the ruthless politician in Boss, winning a Golden Globe before the series was dramatically given the chop. He also played The Beast in X-Men: The Last Stand before moving to UTA a couple of months ago in the hope of landing more feature opportunities. The agency has certainly delivered on their assumed promises and he lines up alongside Mark Wahlberg and Stanley Tucci in the new Transformers flick.
The movie begins production in July, with a script from Ehren Kruger. Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Ian Bryce, Tom DeSanta and Don Murphy are now as producers. The Last Airbender actress Nicola Peltz was cast as the lead actress in the series, following news that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley would not be returning to the franchise. Previously, Megan Fox had held the female lead in the movies, though left after a dispute with Bay. Shortly before production was scheduled to begin on the third instalment, Fox told British magazine Wonderland, "He's [Bay] like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous madman reputation," she said of Bay. "He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is."

Mike and Sulley haven't always been the best of friends that we know they were working at Monsters Inc. When they were amateurs and roommates both majoring in 'scaring' at the Monsters University, there was constant competition between the pair as Mike struggled to keep up with Sulley's natural big, hairy monster persona; Mike and his small physique and rather unscary retainer made him the favourite subject of mockery by Sulley and his friends despite their being in the same fraternity. It soon becomes clear, however, that they are better off together than alone while Mike has the brains and Sulley has the brawn.

Kelsey Grammer's representative has insisted he strapped his 4-month-old baby into a car seat before he left LAX airport earlier this week. Kelsey and Kayte Grammer's parenting techniques came under scrutiny after photographers snapped the family leaving the airport with baby Faith appearing to be resting on Kayte's lap - a violation of Californian law.
A representative for the actor, 57, tells E! News that the baby was fully belted into a car seat before the family left the airport. "I am not an attorney, so I cannot [comment] on any legal aspect. I just know that the original footage that aired strongly implied that they left the airport without a car seat, which was not the case," said Grammer's rep, Stan Rosenfield. So why was Faith on her mother's lap as Kelsey started up the car? Rosenfield explained, "In an attempt to avoid the paparazzi, they exited through the upper level. Kelsey went back in and got the car seat and met them at the car. Did the car drive a few yards without the car seat? Yes. At no time does the video show them leaving the airport with the baby not in the car seat."
The incident comes just weeks after Grammer took his daughter along to Hugh Hefner's Playboy mansion Halloween party. On that occasion, he explained, "Kayte is breast-feeding and we do not have a nanny or a trusted baby-sitter at this time, so Faith goes everywhere with us. We enjoyed the party with a few of our friends, the baby slept as her ears were covered the entire time and we left shortly after midnight."

Kelsey Grammer has decided that his public political leanings - as a staunch supporter of the Republican party - lead to his Emmy snub and the cancellation of his latest project, Boss, The Daily Mail reports.
"Now explain something to me, you get a Golden Globe for 'Boss,' but you don't even get an Emmy nomination?" Jay Leno asked the Frasier star. "Yeah, its hard to figure," Grammer responded. "It may have to do with several things, honestly, but I think it's possible, I mean, I am a, I'm a declared out of the closet Republican in Hollywood." He then went onto ask a question only to answer it himself, which may give more of an indication as to his recent decline in form. "Do I believe it's possible that some young person, young voting actor, or even older voting member for the Emmys, would sit there and go, 'Yeah, that's a great performance, but oooooh, I just hate everything he stands for?' Grammer queried, before answering sarcastically: "I don't believe that's possible."
Instead of who the show's star votes for, the network decided that low figures were the reason for cancelling Boss. And even though he's an ardent republican, at least he sticks to convictions; he is a an member of the Party and has expressed an interest in politics saying he may someday run for United States Congress.
Continue reading: Kelsey Grammer Cites Republican Leanings For Boss Cancellation
Kelsey Grammer has blamed his Republican political leanings for the cancellation of his acclaimed drama The Boss. The Starz TV network announced yesterday (November 20, 2012) that they would not be continuing the show, in which Kelsey plays the tyrannical Chicago mayor Tom Kane, The Daily Mail has reported.
This isn’t the first time that the former Frasier star has suggested that his support for the Republican party has held him back in the world of TV. Earlier this year, Kelsey was complaining to Jay Leno that his Republican ways were the reason that The Boss hadn’t been nominated for an Emmy. When Leno asked why the show had won a Golden Globe but hadn’t even been nominated for an Emmy, Kelsey replied “Yeah, its hard to figure. It may have to do with several things, honestly, but I think it’s possible, I mean, I am a, I’m a declared out of the closet Republican in Hollywood. Do I believe it’s possible that some young person, young voting actor, or even older voting member for the Emmys, would sit there and go, ‘Yeah, that’s a great performance, but oooooh, I just hate everything he stands for?’” He then answered his own question, with a degree of sarcasm, saying “I don’t believe that’s possible.”
In a statement, Starz said that it was “proud” of the show but had made the “difficult” decision not to continue with another series. Grammer may be citing his love for Romney as the reason behind the show’s cancellation but it’s worth looking at the viewer figures, too. The Boss raked in 659,000 for its premiere and a season peak of 440,000 viewers, Compared to the 1.25 million that Starz’s other major drama, Magic City attracted, it looks as though other factors may also be at play here.

Who takes a baby to a Playboy party? Well, Kelsey Grammar and his wife Kayte do, apparently.
This tale of unusual parenting has been reported by TMZ, who posted a picture of the three month old baby, Faith, with the rather unnecessary headline ‘Kelsey Grammer’s Baby PASSED OUT at Playboy Mansion Party.’
According to TMZ, Kelsey and Kayte were partying at the Halloween bash, at a table next to Paris Hilton, whilst the baby stayed tucked up in her carry seat. One Playboy Playmate tweeted her dismay at the Grammers’ decision to bring Faith to the bash, saying “Why the fk does Kelsey Grammer have a newborn baby at the Mansion party!?!?!?" The best person to answer that, of course, is Kelsey Grammer. And Kelsey Grammer explained to Digital Spy: “Kayte is breast-feeding and we do not have a nanny or a trusted babysitter at this time, so Faith goes everywhere with us.” Sounds simple, huh? “We enjoyed the party with a few of our friends, the baby slept as her ears were covered the entire time and we left shortly after midnight,” he added. And in fact, when you put it like that, it’s hard to see what the problem is really.
