After the release of surprisingly empty second part of the "Transformers", which Michael Bay himself acknowledged the nightmare, we are all waiting with some fear of further development of the franchise. Will the director to consider the claim to the story, whether it will cope with such a hated them in the past stereoscopy, will star underwear ads worthy substitute fire Megan Fox? In the end, Michael managed to surprise us - to cross all the more horrific scenario mess with product placement and fertilize it all stunning visuals. And in the garden to grow heavy summer blockbuster. But, alas, not the main movie of the year.
And yet throughout the film give the impression that the script was composed after his team "engine", with the main motive was not to create a sane story lines, and the desire "not offend" the next project sponsor, whether a manufacturer of paper for the copier or luxury cars worth 200 thousand dollars. Well, somehow link the battles humanoid robots.
Perhaps the most coherent in terms of plot part of the picture is the entry that has been known before, sheds light on the nature of the space race of the USSR and the USA. The idea of this episode gave Michael Bay Steven Spielberg, and the result is called, on the face. Yes, even in the picture there are somewhat funny scenes especially for residents of the former Soviet Union, but here is just to relax and wait for the main action.
In the third "Transformers," the Autobots and Decepticons have finally defeated the people in the sense of the cast of the film. For none of the "live" pictures of characters, up to Chailly LaBeouf is no longer able to compete with them in the ability to concentrate on his audience's attention. Almost all the actors were just extras, which notifies the main characters that "Bon appetit." And even the supremely beautiful Frances McDormand and John Malkovich are only a small and pleasant addition to the visual Fieri on the screen. Well, perhaps, Ken Jeong, focusing his entire stock of comedy film.
So, summary. "Transformers 3: The Dark Side of the Moon" - a new standard for all directors of battle-the strongest argument in favor of further development of the stereoscopic cinema and the real attraction, which standing in long queues is more than compensated by a few seconds dizzying somersaults. There is no doubt that the box office will be sufficient to Paramount Studios. But the shortcomings of drama and the weakness of the script, alas, did not allow it to occupy an honored place of the main movie of the year. It is still vacant.
Original "Fast and the Furious" in the desert will arrange a famous film director Rob Cohen in his franchise. He will shoot the thriller "Bullet Run", immediately after the finish work on the adaptation of the novel by James Patterson "My name is Alex Cross."
The subject is somewhat similar to the "Taken". Heroes of "Bullet Run" - spouses, whose daughter was murdered. Because parents are uneasy (he leads a group of elite bodyguards, and she a former CIA agent), they go to Iran to kidnap the killer's daughter. The operation breaks down, and the heroes must rely on their driving skills to escape from the hail of bullets and still preserve the life of the man they most want to see the world dead.
Cohen believes that his new project will be somewhat unique: "The film blends several genres and has tremendous international appeal."
Career of Rob Cohen for some time hung in the balance. After a failed box office of blockbuster "Stealth" almost all studios have turned away from the director, forgetting about the "Fast and the Furious" and the "XXX" successfully demonstrated itself in the world. Cohen took a break from work, out of the depression, opened the third "Mummy" and planned to continue the story of Xander Cage, but nothing came of it. Directed has interested in action Medieval, which is described as a medieval "Magnificent Seven".
But this project of Rob has also broken. Now he will return to the screen character, played by Morgan Freeman in detective stories, "Along came a Spider" and "Kiss the girl". However, at this time, Detective Alex Cross will be like Tyler Perry. Filming begins in August. Preview release is scheduled for the end of 2012 - the beginning of 2013th.
The performers of Professor Xavier and Magneto in the movie-comic "X-Men: First Class" can occur on the set of the new film by Danny Boyle, "Trance". The director suggested one of the roles to Michael Fassbender in May, and now wants to see in the project and James McAvoy.
Boyle is planning to shoot film in 3D before starting work on the production of the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in London in 2012. After director will work on installing, so that the release of "Trance" is tentatively scheduled for 2013.
At the basis of the "Trance" is the eponymous television tape of a decade ago. The employee decides to steal a London auction priceless picture. Since hero is far from the underworld, he is drawn to these gangsters, so they helped him to translate the idea into reality. As often happens, all plans go awry hero. To dramatize a robbery, the bandits hit hard as the hero's head, causing it to partially lose his memory and can’t remember who put the picture. However, criminals do not believe him and hire a female hypnotist to help to remember everything.
Michael Fassbender might become head of the criminal group, which hires the hero to steal the picture. It seems that James McAvoy got an offer to play the role of the hero, having started the whole story, but lost his memory.
To date, the participation of both actors in the project is not official, but it is hoped that the duo will appear at the Boyle - Michael and James worked very smoothly in the "First Class".
