    Michael Bay Decides To Let A Reality Show Choose His Chinese Actors For 'Transformers 4'

    Oh, Michael Bay, sometimes he makes it too easy. Whether's it's Megan Fox as April O'Neil in the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" reboot he's producing, or whatever the heck this trailer is for "Black Sails" which also bears his name, sometimes he really embraces some truly puzzling decisions all in t...

    Christopher Nolan & Michael Bay Shooting IMAX For 'Interstellar' & 'Transformers 4'

    While there seems to be some audience fatigue for 3D -- largely thanks to post-conversions that don't do the format justice or justify the added expense -- IMAX is the one theatrical extra most agree still provides a special experience.
