The "Transformers" film franchise is one of the biggest blockbuster hit franchises and it shows no signs of stopping. The next one is still a few years away, however, most likely during the summer of 2017. That will be the least discomforting news though as the next one will be taking a new direction.
Earlier this month, Michael Bay has confirmed that he won't be directing the next "Transformers" film to pursue other film projects. He made the announcement, half-heartedly at first, a few hours before the premiere of "Transformers: Age of Extinction."
"There's a lot that's unexplored, but that's for the next director to figure out. They're hard movies to do and it takes every day for two years. They're fun, but they're hard," Bay said. more >>

Travis Freeman is set to inspire thousands in the upcoming film "23 Blast" as his story of faith, love and personal courage hits this fall.
Today, Freeman is a college professor and a pastor, but at the tender age of 12, he tragically lost his eyesight to bacterial meningitis. Instead of slipping into depression and losing his spot on his high school football team, Freeman relied heavily on his faith as well as the support of his family, friends, and coaches. Discussing "23 Blast" as well as his autobiography "Lights Out," Freeman explained he has no memory of the first days following his blindness, but can recall his unshakeable faith.
"My parents have always said that when I heard I wouldn't see again, that I looked at them and said, 'I believe I will see again, but if I don't, I can't wait to see what God going to do with this,'" Freeman shared while speaking to The Christian Post. more >>
It has been a year since director Paul W.S. Anderson confirmed director and writing the sixth installment of the video game-turned-movie franchise "Resident Evil." Lead actress Milla Jovovich said previously that the sequel will come out sometime in 2015. Moreover, Anderson said that the film will have a working title "Resident Evil: The Final Chapter" suggesting that this will be the finale for the zombie-slaying flick.
It was initially going to be filmed at Johannesburg and Cape Town in South Africa last month but plans were drastically changed when Jovovich announced in her social media account that she's pregnant with her second child.
"This was originally going to be a post to tell you how excited I am about flying to Cape Town to begin working on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. But… My husband Paul and I just discovered that we are expecting another baby!!!" she wrote on her Facebook page. more >>
