    Grumpy Terry Gilliam Unloads on Various Filmmakers, Films

    If there's one thing we know for sure, it's that Terry Gilliam is really, really grumpy. And or at least, very hilariously candid. Maybe it's the fact that he's constantly marginalized, besides having the oversized imagination and actor loyalty that would (you'd think) make him a...

    Hasbro Talking To Director Michael Bay & Producer Steven Spielberg About Another 'Transformers'

    $1,119,241,043 worldwide for "Transformers: The Dark Of The Moon." That's pretty much the only reason why Hasbro is (obviously) looking at another entry in their "Transformers" franchise. That, and the fact that it's the only movie property they have right now generating any money (not to mention it...

    Weekend Box Office: ‘Transformers 3’ Dominates Again, Now Highest Grossing Domestic Film Of 2011

    'Horrible Bosses' & 'Zookeeper' Start Out StrongTwo weeks ago, Paramount Pictures announced that it had crossed the $1 billion mark at the domestic box office, making it the first studio to accomplish the milestone this year. This was the Wednesday that "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" was released, so suffice to say Paramount are going to have a hell of a year. To little surprise, Michael Bay's thunderous monstrosity of a picture dominated the box-office once more this weekend, adding a not-too-shabby $47 million dollar haul to its total despite a 51.9% drop-off. And that drop-off is lighter than "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen," sugges...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Transformers 3' Obliterates 4th Of July Weekend Record

    But Underperforms Domestically Over 5 Days, 'Larry Crowne' Can't Get Out Of First GearThere's astronomically good and slightly bad to report as the sequel to a less-than-critically-loved-blockbuster-created-solely-to-move-toys hit the marketplace. Michael Bay's “Transformers: Dark Of The Moon” underperformed domestically compared to its predecessor. It grossed $97.4 million in its Friday to Sunday opening box-office weekend, compared to the $108 million "Transformers:Revenge of the Fallen" accumulated in 2009 without the aid of inflated 3D ticket surcharges (and yet, it's won the top-grossing weekend of 2011 so far). But an overseas bonanza d...
