Watch a Supercut of Every Example of Product Placement in Michael Bay’s Movies

If I had to pick the most egregious example of product placement ever, I would nominate the scene from Transformers: Age of Extinction, when the entire movie stops to examine the wreckage of a crash involving an alien spaceship and a Bud Light truck. The camera pans across a street littered with Bud Light bottles; then Mark Wahlberg picks one up, cracks it open, and takes a healthy swig. And while he’s shilling beer, there’s a second product placement in the background; just over his shoulder, very much in focus, is a giant Goodyear Tires sign.

2017 Was the Worst Memorial Day Weekend Box Office Since 1999

Memorial Day is the official start of summer, but in Movieland, summer starts well before, in early May or even sooner. (I generally say there four season on the calendar but only two seasons for movies: Summer and Awards.) Still, Memorial Day is still supposed to be a big deal in movie theaters; kids have an extra day off from school and Hollywood delivers some of the season’s biggest offerings.

Hugh Jackman Was Nervous About Playing X-24 in ‘Logan’

One of the most impressive parts about Logan was one of its most closely guarded secrets: Hugh Jackman not only played the title character, he played his evil double too; a perfect clone of Wolverine known as X-24. This new character wasn’t featured in any of the marketing materials or even alluded to in any way. When he shows up late in the film he is a shock, and an effective extension of the movie’s themes about a man wrestling with his nature as a killer (and, possibly, a monster).

Early Reviews Call ‘Wonder Woman’ the Best DC Universe Movie Yet

So far the reviews of the DC Extended Universe movies have been ... uh, what’s the opposite of good? Bad. They’ve been bad. The first three movies — Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Suicide Squad — have an average Rotten Tomatoes score of 36. That is bad. The opposite of good. For sure.

What Hollywood Should Learn From ‘Logan’s R Rating

When Logan arrives on Blu-ray next week, it will include one of the better bonus features in recent home entertainment history: A black and white cut of the film called Logan Noir, which made its premiere last night at a special screening at Brooklyn’s Alamo Drafthouse. The Noir cut looks great, but the real story coming out of last night’s event wasn’t the new version, it was a comment made by director James Mangold during the post-screening Q&A.

‘Baywatch’ Red-Band Trailer: This Ain’t Your Hasselhoff’s ‘Baywatch’

There was no jocularity on Baywatch when I was a child. These brave men and women in red bathing suits were doing very important things, like guarding lives, performing CPR, running in slow-motion, and occasionally starting totally random spinoff shows featuring sea monsters. The new Baywatch movie is a new breed of ‘watch. These guys do joke around, constantly. It’s Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron as mismatched partners on the lifeguard scene, joking about one another’s testicles, performing highly unprofessional autopsies, and even arguing over severed limbs. Seriously: Not your Hasselhoff’s Baywatch.

The ‘Blade Runner 2049’ Trailer Teaser Is Here to Maintain Order

The full trailer for Blade Runner 2049 arrives on Monday, but the latest teaser of said trailer is available now and it is ... well it is short. It’s just 15 seconds. But there is some cool stuff in that 15 seconds. Maybe not enough to justify having a separate teaser, but cool stuff all the same, including some new shots of Ryan Gosling’s character and an old shot of Harrison Ford’s character, Rick Deckard.

Every Marvel Cinematic Universe Post-Credits Scene, Ranked

Strange but true: There are many more Marvel post-credits scenes than there are Marvel movies. By a wide margin. And the margin gets even wider with this weekend’s release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which has a whopping total of five different stingers strewn throughout its credits. The movie is like eight percent post-credits scenes.
