Transformers

Just yesterday, another trailer for another alien invasion film used old footage to make its mark. Today, Transformers: Dark of the Moon has that beat by using real footage of the Apollo moon landing in order to change history. Apparently when we lost contact with the ship, that’s when their real job began. This trailer feels more like the first few minutes of the film, but that might be a good thing. It certainly does its job as a teaser. It’s still unclear what kind of story is going to be told, but it will most likely be a matter of bad robots wanting something and good robots fighting to keep it from them. Shia LaBeouf will share in some wacky antics, scream “Nononono!” a lot, and run around in order to save the universe. All the while, everything will look absolutely, breathtakingly epic. Plus, they seem to be highlighting the Spielbergian nature of the film – both with his name up top and the tone of the time period. Whether or not the film will sync up on the second lion roar of The Wizard of Oz has yet to be seen, but holy hell does it look incredible. Michael Bay knows how to deliver a stunning image. Hopefully a better story can go along with it. [Apple]

With Bill Nighy’s claim that he doesn’t like watching himself in movies, I figured I’d take the opportunity to suggest the practice to a few other actors. But it’s not exactly what you think.

We first meet Needy Lesnicky in a mental ward for troubled teens. She narrates the story of what led her to end up wearing a jumpsuit and bunny slippers, and it all starts with her best friend, Jennifer Check.

The still-scorching red head will be bringing some motherly love to the production and hopefully making sure that Michael Douglas doesn’t use as much hair gel as he plans on using.
