    John Malkovich Is Getting A 'Siberian Education'

    John Malkovich is anything but predictable. Who would've thought that the two time Oscar nominee for "In The Line Of Fire" and "Places In The Heart," the memorable star of such films as "The Killing Fields," "Dangerous Liasons" and of course, "Being John Malkovich" would wind up as an eccentric throwaway bit player in Michael Bay's "Transformers: Dark Of The Moon"? (And wind up being the best thing about the movie in the process). Even though the actor has been taking some steps toward the mainstream lately with middling results -- "Red," "Jonah Hex," "Beowulf" -- and slumming it in C-pictures like "Eragon" and "Mutant Chronicles" (geez, who ...

    The Tragedy of Michael Bay.

    The best part of "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" has no transformers in it. In the first act of Michael Bay's two-hour-plus threequel, regular transformer pal Shia LaBeouf fights a harder battle than any Decepticon has ever forced on him: Finding a job. In a humorous montage of ill-fated interviews, LaBeouf reminds us that he posseses legitimate acting talent beyond those countless reactions shots to CGI. (Remember "A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints"?) In a vain display of self-confidence, the erstwhile hero repeatedly gets put in his place by striking out. Even a bemused John Malkovich doesn't bat an eyelash when LaBeouf proclaims that he ...

    Danny Boyle Wants Colin Firth and Scarlett Johansson To Join James McAvoy In 'Trance'

    Zoe Saldana and Mélanie Thierry Also In Contention, Michael Fassbender Definitely OutIf there was every any doubt, after work like "Shallow Grave," "Trainspotting" and "Sunshine," Danny Boyle has firmly planted his feet among the A-list of directors: he's had two Best Picture nominees in a row, with the first of them, "Slumdog Millionaire" winning a Best Director Oscar; he's scored a big stage hit in "Frankenstein"; and he's been handed the responsibility for the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics. While the latter will take up most of Boyle's next year, he's not going to be totally absent from the film world; it was announced a few...
