The Explosive Movies That Crushed The Box Office On Independence Day Weekend

July 4th, 2014 8:01am EDT
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...

Mark Wahlberg To Replace Shia LaBeouf In 'Transformers 4'

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...

Transformers director Michael Bay appears to have taken aim at Hugo Weaving in a scathing blog post after the actor confessed his work as the voice of robot villain Megatron was "meaningless" to him - but promptly removed the online item.

The Matrix star revealed this week that he did no research for the role and simply showed up to read his lines, without ever meeting Bay in person or setting foot on set.

He told movie news website Collider.com, "It was one of the only things I've ever done where I had no knowledge of it, I didn't care about it, I didn't think about it... I don't regret ...

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.
