You can definitely tell a Michael Bay movie a mile away can’t you? Surround extremely photogenic actors with loud explosions and special effects and voila… another potential Summer blockbuster. While I never really got into the first three Transformer films, I’m willing to give this next trilogy a shot due to Mark Wahlberg’s addition.

“We really are going to do a reboot there, and what that’s going to be we don’t even know yet,” producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura had explained in an interview with MTV. “It’s a hybrid…It’s an evolution. There’s still continuity that’s going on, and yet there’ll be a lot of new cast.”

Wahlberg plays Cade Yeager, a single father and struggling mechanic, trying to support his daughter Tessa (Nicola Peltz) and protect her from race car driver boyfriend, Shane (Jack Reynor). In between all that father-daughter drama, giant robots engage in some serious mechanical warfare. The battle between Optimus Prime and a Dinobot T-Rex in some random Asian metropolis looks pretty sick. It’s about time the Dinobots showed up.

Rounding out the Transformers: Age of Extinction cast are Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, Li Bingbing and T.J. Miller. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on June 27. Check out the trailer below.

Adios Mila Kunis. Mark Wahlberg is getting a new love interest for the Ted sequel. If you’re looking for some juicy behind the scenes drama as to why, there isn’t one. Seth MacFarlane reveals the decision to replace Kunis’ Lori Collins character was entirely a creative one. He did say, however, that Kunis might have a brief cameo in the film. Find out who rounds out the Ted-Wahlberg menage à trois below?

A&E Orders A Second Helping Of Wahlburgers

It appears America has fallen in love with Boston’s first family. After debuting with a little over 3 million viewers, Wahlburgers has improved week after week. With regards to the coveted 18-49 demo, the show is tied for second with NBC’s Chicago P.D. and behind only the recently completed American Horror Story: Coven. Not surprisingly, A&E ordered 18 more episodes of the family reality show. That’s a lot of beef.

“Viewers are responding to the heartwarming dynamics of Boston’s first family as they balance living in the Hollywood spotlight and growing a business,” – David McKillop, general manager and executive vp of A&E.

Wahlburgers follows Chef Paul Wahlberg and his famous brothers, Mark and Donnie, as they run their family burger joint in Beantown. A homage to their humble beginnings, the hamburger restaurant is home base for the gang from the old neighborhood, including the real Johnny “Drama” and their spirited mother Alma. Check out a few clips from the A&E series below.

Lone Survivor co-stars Taylor Kitsch and Mark Wahlberg dropped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote their film, opening this weekend. Since both actors trained with the Navy Seals for their roles, DeGeneres challenged the boys to compete in an obstacle course. The winner of the race would not only win bragging rights, but also a $10,000 check furnished by ShutterFly to support their charity of choice.

With Kitsch being a decade younger than Wahlberg, one would naturally give the Canadian the edge. At one point, it’s neck-in-neck but one handily prevailed. In the end, it really didn’t matter who won since both chose the same charity to support, The Lone Survivor Fund. Watch the video below to find out who won.

Everyone knows Mark and Donnie, but how about Paul? He’s another one from the Wahlberg clan. You’ll get to know more about this brother if you tune in to A&E’s upcoming docu-series titled Wahlburgers.

The show chronicles Mark & Donnie heading back to their native Boston to help their older bro out with his new hamburger restaurant. You’ll also get to know their spirited mother Alma. In the teaser, she reveals a time when it wasn’t cool to be her famous sons’ mother. I can only imagine the trouble they got into as kids.

Wahlburgers premieres on A&E on Wednesday, January 22, 2014. Watch the new promo below to find out exactly what’s in a Donnie Double D burger. I hope it has nothing to do with Donnie’s girlfriend, Jenny McCarthy’s breasts. I’d much rather have some secret sauce ;)

Mark Wahlberg Is The Lone Survivor

In: Donovan, Movies

Based on Marcus Luttrell’s New York best-selling novel, Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10, Lone Survivor chronicles a 2005 mission called “Operation Red Wing” which found Seal Team 10 on a mission to capture a Taliban leader named Admad Shad in Afghanistan. Sadly, the operation failed leaving Luttrell as the sole survivor. Mark Wahlberg plays the former Navy Seal.

Lone Survivor hits theaters December 27th, 2013. Can we say Oscar-bait? Joining Wahlberg in the film are Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster, Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Ludwig, Eric Bana, Jerry Ferrara, Scott Elrod. On a superficial note, how good-looking is the cast? The film is directed by Peter Berg. Check out the new trailer below.

Poor Taylor Kitsch. Hollywood insiders tapped him as the next big thing, but after a string of big box office disappointments, that didn’t look it was ever going to happen. In his defense, I don’t think any actor could’ve saved the disasters that were John Carter and Battleship. His latest film reunites him with his Battleship director, Peter Berg. Hopefully this time around, their collaboration yields better results.

If there was anyone who could pull Kitsch out of his slump, it’s Mark Wahlberg. The former Marky Mark co-stars with Kitsch in Lone Survivor. The film is based on a 2005 mission called “Operation Red Wing” which found Seal Team 10 on a mission to capture a Taliban leader named Admad Shad in Afghanistan. Sadly, the operation failed leaving Marcus Luttrell as the sole survivor. Rounding out the cast are Eric Bana, Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster and Alexander Ludwig.

Lone Survivor hits theaters in a limited release December 27 before going wide in January. Clearly, an attempt to sneak in for awards consideration. Reportedly Peter Berg couldn’t get support for the film without directing Battleship first. That explains the creative misstep. LOL. Check out the trailer below.

All is not completely hopeless for Lindsay Lohan. If she’s ever in doubt about making a legitimate comeback, all she needs to do is look at Robert Downey Jr. for inspiration. There once was a time when the 48-year-old actor was considered damaged goods after a string of drug arrests, rehab stints and box office bombs. Now, he’s Forbes Highest-Paid Actor In Hollywood based on earnings from June 2012 til June 2013.

According to the publication, Downey Jr. raked in an astonishing $75 million over the past year. A massive sum bolstered by gigantic blockbuster hits like The Avengers and Iron Man 3. Both of those movies made over $1 billion at the international box office.

Coming in second place is everyone’s favorite former stripper turned Hollywood A-lister, Channing Tatum. The 33-year-old new dad’s runner up status was buoyed by the success of Magic Mike. Since he self-financed the flick, he laughed all the way to the bank with most of the film’s profits. Check out the rest of the Top 10 below. There’s a couple of surprises including Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson making the cut.
