" Transformers 4 is confirmed for a summer 2014 release with Michael Bay to direct. It may become a reboot."

Are you fucking serious :shudder:

bandnamexmyname 02/19/12 02:04 PM

FNL movie, fucking yes.

1) I hate when they announce guest stars for Community. It makes me miss and anticipate the show even more.

2) Disney better hope John Carter is well-reviewed and audiences like it. The tracking hasn't been encouraging so far. Personally, I'm not sure I'd want to see it without Andrew Stanton's involvement.

3) Zorro Reborn sounds like the dumbest idea ever.

Looking forward to Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter. Hope it does the book justice.

Stop making stupid Transformers movies. Jesus.

Personally looking forward to "The Devil's Carnival", the new series by Darren Lynn Bousman and Terrance Zdunich. Loved "Repo! The Genetic Opera", and this cast looks promising.

I really liked I Am Legend. I hope the sequel is at least decent.
