Bumblebee Will Return to Volkswagen Bug Form in His Spinoff Movie

The Transformers movies are basically perfect except for one small problem: Bumblebee, the lovable Autobot hero, isn’t a Volkswagen Beetle, as he was in the original Transformers toys and cartoon series. (In the films, he’s a Chevy muscle car, the model of which varies based on whatever is Chevrolet’s hot new car of the moment.) Other than that? All five Transformers movies are basically 10/10, would own on Blu-ray.

Listen to a Preview of Michael Giacchino’ ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Score

There have been five Spider-Man movies to date, and more than that many Spider-Man composers. Danny Elfman wrote the music for Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2, and Christopher Young built on his themes for Spider-Man 3. Marc Webb brought in James Horner to score The Amazing Spider-Man and Hans Zimmer and the “Magnificent Six,” a supergroup that included Pharrell, Johnny Marr, and Junkie XL, for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

DeMario Jackson Won’t Return for the Rest of ‘Bachelor in Paradise’

Here’s the latest semi-daily update on the ongoing situation over at Bachelor in Paradise. The show is coming back to the airwaves this summer, after the conclusion of the investigation into the allegations of misconduct on set. Deadline reports you might get fewer episodes than you were supposed to; probably two fewer installments that the original season order, due to the reduced shooting schedule and the delays in production. The “leaner” show almost certainly will not hit its original premiere date, August 8. But, Deadline says, it will address the controversy that temporarily shut the show down. How could it not?

Dazzler Will Appear in ‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’

She’s a rock star, a mutant, and a superhero. She is Alison Blaire, known as Dazzler, and she has had no luck getting into one of the X-Men movies so far. In the past there have been rumors that superstar Taylor Swift might appear in the character, and in X-Men: Apocalypse, there was even a very brief cameo for the character, on the cover of a record in a music shop, that wound up getting cut from the finished film.

McDonald’s Has an Entire ‘Despicable Me 3’ Menu And It Is Really Something

I don’t quite understand why, but people really seem to want to eat the Minions, the lovable yellow goobers from the Despicable Me franchise. When Minions came out, there were Minions Twinkies, and there have been Minions menus at IHOP too. Now generally I am a big fan of movie food, but this goes beyond my limits. The Minions are sentient beings; why would you want to consume them?!?

Here’s Your First Look at Pixar’s Experimental Short ‘Smash and Grab’

Every time Pixar releases another sequel like Monsters University or Cars 3, a hefty portion of fans wring their hands and declare that the studio is past its prime or lost its edge. And there’s probably a certain amount of truth to the idea that Pixar is more about extending franchises than creating new one (although they’ve still pumped out a fair amount of new movies lately, like The Good Dinosaur, Brave, and Inside Out, which might be the best Pixar production ever).

Get Ready Pitches, Here Comes the ‘Pitch Perfect 3’ Poster

Pitch Perfect has become of the unlikeliest (and therefore more welcome) Hollywood franchises in recent years. The series combines the college hijinks of something like Animal House with the competition of an underdog sports movie like The Bad News Bears, and throws in just a dash of Christopher Guest comedy. The first movie was a particular delight, and while the second film didn’t quite recapture the magic, I’m hoping the third film, Pitch Perfect 3, will wrap up the series with style.

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.

Did the New ‘Transformers’ Kill Shia LaBeouf’s Character Off-Screen?

The new Transformers movie is all about buried secrets. Texan Bostonian inventor bro Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg) and brainy Oxford professor Vivian Frumplebumple (okay I admit it: I didn’t catch her last name so I made that up) discover a world they never knew: The hidden history of Transformers on Earth. It turns out the Transformers have played a role in every armed conflict throughout time. The Transformers helped King Arthur, and they threw an assist to the Allies during World War II. There’s more to meets the eye in those history books, doncha know.
