We’re starting to see some of the summer’s big releases hit home video this week, and Michael Bay’s latest opus is also now available. But Criterion has the best release of the week, while Shout Factory is releasing some gems. It’s a good but small week for home video.

Though Iron Man 3 still ruled the weekend, The Great Gatsby exceeded all expectations and made over $50 Million this weekend. The obvious joke would be to suggest that a lot of book reports must be due for the end of the school year. Yeah, that's the obvious joke.

IRON MAN 3
Marvel has done it again, as Iron Man 3 tops the box office with the second highest opening weekend of all time. It comes in second place to The Avengers, which broke the record last year, and ended up making $600 Million domestic.

Summer is almost here, and you can tell that by the international numbers for Iron Man 3. The movie (which opens in less than a week stateside) has nearly cleared $200 Million internationally, which is nearly ten times what Pain and Gain made to top the box office in America.

Box Office Predictions: 'Pain and Gain' Pumps Itself to the Top Spot

Pain and Gain
It's the end of April, which means that the summer season starts next week with Iron Man 3 (which is really good). Until then, we get a Michael Bay movie starring Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson, which would normally be a big summer event, but since this is Bay's small art film, it's being released with the hope of having little competition and a quick payday.

Pain and Gain
Michael Bay's Pain & Gain is around the corner, and the marketing team behind the buddy movie is stepping up their game.

After years of making big, dumb, and almost sociopathically stupid CGI-heavy films like The Transformers franchise and The Island, Michael Bay is finally going back to the genre that he began in—big, dumb, and almost sociopathically stupid comedic action films that are well aware how utterly ridiculous they are (see also: Bad Boys, The...

Pain and Gain
Michael Bay has spent most of the last decade making Transformers movies, and will continue to for at least one more film. But for those who ever suggested the director had something going on besides being one of the most talented directors with visual effects and scale, it's been hard to defend Bay considering he's made three big-budget toy adverts. Now comes...

First, there was the internet rumor that Mark Wahlberg, fresh off of Michael Bay’s Pain and Gain, would also star in Bay’s upcoming Transformers 4.  Then Bay came forward to deny the rumors, and stated that he and Wahlberg were in talks about another project.  Then Bay came out again and stated that, hey, maybe the internet was on to something with that whole ‘Mark...

'Transformers 4': The Internet Might Force Mark Wahlberg To Star

Published by

PAIN AND GAIN
Two weeks ago, internet chatter spit forth the rumor that Mark Wahlberg was in negotiations to star in Michael Bay’s Transformers 4.   And it sort of made sense—Wahlberg and Bay apparently shared a close working relationship during the filming of Bay’s upcoming Pain and Gain earlier this year, so why not work together again?  Well, Bay put the kibosh...

Ted - Mark Wahlberg
Yesterday, rumors kicked loose that Mark Wahlberg, who recently just completed filming Michael Bay’s Pain and Gain—a biopic about two “psychotic gym rats in Miami who get into kidnapping and murder”—would be the star of Bay’s newest insult to coherent cinema, Transformers 4.  Which would be something of a shock, as Wahlberg, while he may not be Laurence...

Sadly, the ShoWest footage that Michael Bay put online has now been pulled. Apparently, according to IESB who somehow got a chance to speak with Bay, it was never meant to stay online... The Showest footage was pulled down because it was just a 12-hour thing. I just wanted the fans to get a taste of what we have been making for a year and a half because we have been so...
