RT on DVD & Blu-Ray: Transformers: Dark of the Moon

The home video gods have yet again seen fit only to throw us a few crumbs this week, but, as usual, we'll make the best of it. There are a few notable releases we won't be writing about, like the new Blu-ray of the pitch black high school comedy Heathers (basically the HD version of the 20th High School Reunion edition that came out a couple years ago), and a 3-movie collection of the more recent Gamera films, but not a whole lot else, unless, again, you're into TV. But first off, we've got the latest installment from Michael Bay and his giant robot franchise, which was, at the very least, a little better than the last one. Then, we've got classic Charlton Heston in one of the greatest Hollywood epics of all time, and Kevin Bacon dancing his little tooshie off in a popular '80s teen flick. We round out the week's selections with an earlier Guillermo del Toro thriller and an eerie silent film on Criterion. More…

The Summer Movie Scorecard gathers every big movie and blockbuster of summer 2011 and lines 'em up, ranked worst-reviewed to best.

Box Office Guru Wrapup: New Comedies Can't Stop Transformers

A pair of star-driven comedies couldn't keep the 3D juggernaut Transformers: Dark of the Moon from holding onto the number one spot at the worldwide box office as the Autobots held up well for an action sequel coming off of a holiday putting it on course to possibly reach the $1 billion global box office mark. The Michael Bay behemoth grossed an estimated $47M in its second weekend falling 52% from its debut frame - not bad for the third chapter in a sci-fi tentpole franchise. Last weekend's Friday-to-Sunday take did not include the opening day which helped keep the decline manageable, but still the hold for this type of film was commendable. The third Transformers flick has now banked a stellar $261M in under two weeks making it the top-grossing domestic blockbuster of 2011. More…

Box Office Guru Wrapup: Transformers Takes Control

Towering over all other films, the third Transformers installment debuted to an estimated $116.4M over the extended Friday-to-Monday holiday period and a colossal $181.1M since its launch on Tuesday night with 9pm previews. The Friday-to-Sunday portion was $97.5M. That was good enough to break the seven-year-old records for this holiday set in 2004 by the highly anticipated superhero sequel Spider-Man 2 which bowed to $88.2M over the Friday-to-Sunday span and $115.8M over the Friday-to-Monday period. Taking out the $5.5M that Optimus Prime brought in from Tuesday night sneaks, the actual Wednesday-to-Sunday tally for the robots was $156.7M. The Spidey pic sold more tickets though as Transformers enjoyed a big jump in 2D prices plus 3D surcharges. More…

Critics Consensus: Transformers: Dark of the Moon is Less Than Meets the Eye

This week at the movies, we've got robots in disguise (Transformers: Dark of the Moon, starring Shia LaBeouf and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley), a recession romance (Larry Crowne, starring Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts), and a royal mix-up (Monte Carlo, starring Selena Gomez and Leighton Meester). What do the critics have to say? Three films into the franchise, we pretty much know what we're getting with a Transformers movie: tons of hyperkinetic robot action, with little in the way of character development or coherent plotting. So it is with Transformers: Dark of the Moon; critics say this latest installment is a marked improvement over Revenge of the Fallen, but it's still an exercise in sensory overload that favors special effects over storytelling.

Michael Bay and James Cameron talk Transformers and 3D

Last night, RT headed over to Paramount for a summit of two commercial movie titans we didn't think one room would be big enough to hold: filmmakers, tech junkies and fellow lovers of giant robots Michael Bay and James Cameron. The Transformers director was on hand to screen footage of his forthcoming planet-leveling opus, Dark of the Moon, which was shot in part using the 3D camera rigs developed by Cameron for Avatar. Read on for their chat about the film and where they think 3D is headed -- and why it's not for everyone. More…
