Simon West says he would like to make Con Air 2 in Space

CON AIR hit theaters in June of 1997 and has since gone on to solidify itself as a ridiculous, albeit great, action movie. I was rejected from the box office at least five times trying to get into this movie without an adult; I would eventually watch it at home ad nauseam eventually killing my VHS copy. A sequel to the movie has been floating around certain corners of the blogosphere...

Review: Pain & Gain

PLOT : In the latest feature from Michael Bay , the director takes a break from the massive budget spectacle of giant robots. PAIN AND GAIN is a true crime story, one in which the director brings his over-the-top style to a story about three bodybuilders (two of which work at a local Miami gym) who decide to go for the American dream, but with deadly circumstances. While this is...

2 clips from Michael Bay's Pain and Gain highlight penis magic and incompetence

The trailers and TV spots for Michael Bay 's PAIN AND GAIN have thus far looked exactly like the kind of film you'd expect from the director. Loud, kinetic, flashy, and chopped like a car commercial on, you guessed it, steroids. It has the signature humor that Bay typically injects in his films, which often feels like it shouldn't be there (i.e. TRANSFORMERS). However, I think that PAIN AND...

New poster and images for Michael Bay's Pain and Gain with Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson

Michael Bay gets a lot of (rightfully deserved) flak from most hardcore film geeks but his new film PAIN AND GAIN might ease some of that ill will many have towards the director. At least until NINJA TURTLES comes out.  If I had to use two words to describe the marketing for PAIN AND GAIN it would be "America" and "muscles". Both are evident once again in this final poster for...

Mark Wahlberg only wants what's his in the red band trailer for Pain & Gain

Here's the roided out version of the American dream thanks to Michael Bay . A red band trailer for PAIN & GAIN has been released today, and it's certainly intriguing. I'm definitely a fan of most of the cast in this film: Mark Wahlberg , Dwayne " The Rock " Johnson, Anthony Mackie , Ed Harris , Rebel Wilson , and Rob Corddry just to name a few. It also has the whole true...

Brett Ratner's Hercules with Dwayne Johnson gets an official release date

For those of you hoping that Brett Ratner 's HERCULES, starring Dwayne " The Rock " Johnson would never come to light, well, you're out of luck.  Paramount Pictures and MGM have set a release date of August 8, 2014 for the pic, which is an adaptation of the comic, Hercules: The Thracian Wars, published by Radical Comics.  The story is said to be a "revisionist take on the classic...

The trailer for Michael Bay's Pain and Gain is full of roid rage

I was not quite sure what to make of PAIN AND GAIN based on the posters or the behind the scenes images we have seen to date. Was it going to be a comedy or a drama or what? Based on this international trailer, it is a combination of both with some action thrown in for good measure. This looks like the smallest film from Michael Bay in quite a long time, which is the understatement...

Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson have a bigger American dream than you says this poster for Pain & Gain

There's something very awesome about this new poster for Michael Bay 's PAIN AND GAIN. Maybe Mark Wahlberg 's head looks a little shopped...or maybe his face is really that smooth and handsome. Regardless, I have a feeling that these two will make a terrific pairing. This may also be a film that will make me think a little more of Bay. I'm not so much for an explosion in every...

Michael Bay responds to actors complaining about doing voicework

In the last week we've had two actors, both Paul Bettany and Hugo Weaving, speak candidly about the voice work they've done for some of the most profitable films in Hollywood.  And, what they had to say wasn't exactly inspiring.  We reported on Hugo Weaving's thoughts on playing Megatron in Michael Bay's TRANSFORMERS films, where he said, " They wanted me to do it. In one way, I regret...

Does this poster for Michael Bay's Pain and Gain get you pumped?

Is this a simple and relatively effective teaser poster? Yes.  Is it a simple poster that communicates almost none of the drama/crazy true story behind the movie? Also yes. PAIN AND GAIN is the story of "a pair of bodybuilders in Florida get caught up in an extortion ring and a kidnapping scheme that goes terribly wrong," and set photos have revealed Dwayne Johnson barbecuing a...
