Mark Wahlberg cast as lead in Transformers 4

There was a rumor floated on the internetz a week about that Mark Wahlberg was going to headline Michael Bay's Transformers 4. However, the story was soon quashed by Bay's spokesperson who said that it was false.

But that was before we lived in the era of Star Wars Episode VII, which was supposed to never happen, right team?

Halo 4 hits

For a good chunk of people, the big event happening on November 6 wasn't America deciding who would be chosen as the next President. Instead, a legion of gamers were awaiting the release of Halo 4, Microsoft's biggest release for the holiday 2012 window as well as what's expected to be the first in a new gaming trilogy.

Editorial: Why selling Star Wars to Disney was a good thing

It’s hard to believe that less than a week has gone by since we learned George Lucas was selling Star Wars to Disney, and that more Star Wars movies will be made. Until that announcement I had figured that, one day a decade or two from now, we would see Star Wars Episode VII get made. If you had asked me one week ago if we would be planning on watching Episode VII in theaters by 2015, I would have called you crazy.

Wreck-It Ralph gets a high score at the box office

The video game action-action of Disney's Wreck-It Ralph captured the imaginations of movie audiences this weekend, elevating the CG 'toon to the top of the box office. Although Wreck-It Ralph had a considerable budget (it was estimated to cost the movie studio around $160 million dollars to make), Wreck-it Ralph opened with a domestic theatrical gross of $49.1 million dollars. With that kind of splash, Wreck-It Ralph will almost certainly recoup its production cost from domestic screenings.

Fly Air New Zealand with hobbits, orcs and Peter Jackson

After the world watched Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings movie trilogy, the director's native land of New Zealand became the visual default setting for J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth. While it already enjoyed a healthy level of tourism for its sweeping, majestic vistas, Jackson's homeland experienced a new wave of interested travelers because of the popularity of the movies. In fact, several tourism companies now exist due to worldwide inquiries from people interested in visiting where the scenes in The Shire were filmed, or to gaze upon the Misty Mountains or plains of Rohan for themselves.

Review: Skyfall

[This early review of Skyfall is submitted by CA reader Dalton's Chin Dimple, an avid fan of James Bond]

I am going to try and remain as spoiler-free as possible and not discuss anything that hasn’t already been revealed in teasers, trailers and the cast interviews for Skyfall. I will also avoid mentioning anything that would take away your enjoyment of the film. Let me say straight off that I could see this James Bond movie being divisive. I think people will either love it or hate it. I don’t think many people will come out in the middle.

Editorial: George Lucas, Inc.

When George Lucas handed an early draft of Episode II: Attack of the Clones to his marketing team to vet – itself an interesting note – the response he got back on one specific point is rather telling.  His merchandising masterminds took issue with the character of Dooku, a former Jedi Master who had turned count, being portrayed as the latest member of the so-called Lost 20, the only 20 Jedi to have ever left the Order (typically to pursue such flights of fancy as marriage or childrearing).

Lucasfilm bought by Disney for $4 billion dollars, Star Wars Episode VII coming in 2015

The Walt Disney Company has made an agreement to purchase Lucasfilm, the company created and built by Star Wars creator George Lucas, for $4.05 billion dollars. Furthermore, Disney is planning to create and release Star Wars Episode VII, the sequel to Return of the Jedi, for release in 2015.

This is big news. Furthermore, it seems to fly in the face of what Star Wars creator George Lucas has said throughout his filmmaking career: to keep Lucasfilm an independently run film business and to never make another Star Wars sequel.

So what changed Lucas' mind?

Infographic: 50 years of James Bond

This month marks the 50th anniversary since the release of Dr. No, the first James Bond movie. During the past five decades we've seen 25 James Bond movies released, two of which are considered outside of the canon that most Bond fans follow, those being the 1967 comedy version of Casino Royale and the 1983 Sean Connery picture Never Say Never Again. And with current Bond actor Daniel Craig appearing in the most recent Bond film (Skyfall), there's been renewed interest in the British secret agent and his government issued license to kill.

Arnold Schwarzenegger agrees to make third Conan movie

While I didn't see this one coming, the signs were pointing in that direction: Arnold Schwarzenegger will portray his first iconic movie hero role again, that of Conan the barbarian, in a new movie titled The Legend of Conan. This is a done deal and Universal Pictures, the company who now has the rights to release Conan movies, wants this new picture out in the summer of 2014.

Review: Cloud Atlas

Cloud Atlas is a movie that comes along infrequently, a product of the commercial Hollywood system but done with a definite art house style approach to its creation. Clocking in at nearly three hours long, this ambitious movie tries to tell multiple stories that weave across a tapestry of five hundred years of human history, from the 19th century to the 24th. Throughout all of the eras the same ensemble of actors return to play different characters in the different time periods, sometimes swapping roles between hero and villain, black or white or Asian, and even male or female.

Marvel Studios, Disney and Paramount have released the first trailer for Iron Man 3. Watch:

 

 

Sooooo...

All that talk from Robert Downey Jr., director Shane Black and Marvel prez/producer Kevin Feige about Tony Stark having everything stripped away in IM3 looks to be legit.
