Wild Wild West
The weekend following Independence Day here in America has become a must-perform spot on the calendar for movie studios. This year, the 4th of July lands on a Friday, leaving us bereft of new releases (although Transformers: Age of Extinction, which came out on the 27th, should do nicely). So with nothing new coming out, let's take a look at the bombastic films we celebrated freedom with in years past.

If there's one thing you need to know about Will Smith, it's that he loves July 4th. No other actor has benefited more from releasing films around Independence Day than Wil...

20 Of The Coolest Aliens From Pop Culture
We have a fundamental obsession with the idea that aliens exist. In all probability they do - but we've got no actual idea what they might look like, sound like, think like or smell like. And if there's one thing the human mind does when it's not sure about something - it's create an identity from scratch. And that's what some of our most prolific directors and writers have done with some of the most beloved science fiction series in pop culture.

The result is a near infinite library of alien species that could very well be more extravagant than anything nature can produce. This library of...

First Full Trailer For 'Transformers: Age Of Extinction' Feature
One month after a 45-second teaser trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction debuted during the Super Bowl, Paramount Pictures has released the first full-length trailer for the film, clocking in at just shy of two-and-a-half-minutes.

Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg) drives past a billboard that reads "Remember Chicago: Report Alien Activity" at the beginning of the trailer, which appears to take place several years after the third installment in the franchise, Transformers: Dark Of The Moon. That film wrapped up with some serious destruction of the city of Chicago as the Decepticons attempte...

Mark Wahlberg
One way to freshen up (or destroy) a popular franchise is to change the lead actor. It can work - Jeremy Renner did a decent job taking over from Matt Damon in the "Bourne" series - but we're not sure how it will affect the blockbuster "Transformer" films.

Director Michael Bay just announced that Mark Wahlberg will join the fourth installment of the franchise, replacing Shia LaBeouf.

Bay wrote on his website, "Mark is awesome. We had a blast working on 'Pain and Gain' and I’m so fired up to be back working with him. An actor of his caliber is the perfect guy to re-invigorate the franchise...

Megan Fox fell back in love with acting thanks to her cameo appearance in The Dictator, because it gave her the chance to break away from her "sexy, icy image."

1/28/2012 3:00pm EST
Transformers: Dark Of The Moon
Director Michael Bay wasn't kidding when he said that the 3D Blu-ray version of Transformers: Dark Of The Moon "will blow you away."

"If you've been waiting for the right time to get a 3D television, this is it," he adds - and he couldn't be more right.

Those sneering at the very thought of bringing 3D into their living rooms and - gasp! - having to wear glasses to get the effect simply haven't experienced the latest technology.

In my experience, not one soul has uttered anything other than "cool," "awesome" or "oh my gosh" when they got their first look.
