Mark Wahlberg's "Transformers" Movie and Keira Knightley's "Begin Again" Are In Theaters
In "Begin Again," Keira Knightley plays a songwriter who came to New York to help her boyfriend with his first record deal . . . and then gets dumped after he becomes a rock star. Mark Ruffalo is a record exec who convinces her to record her own music, "True Grit's" Hailee Steinfeld plays his daughter, and Adam Levine from Maroon 5 makes his acting debut as Keira's boyfriend. Mos Def and Cee Lo Green are also in it.
Keira also does her own singing in the movie and has five songs on the soundtrack that's out Tuesday. Here's a track:
"Transformers: Age of Extinction" opens today. Some think Transformers are robots that turn into cars. Others think they're cars that turn into robots. I think they're crappy scripts that turn into gobs of money.
Mark Wahlberg discovers that the truck he's planning to strip for parts is actually an injured Optimus Prime. He and his family are then attacked by a strike team sent by Kelsey Grammer, a CIA agent who wants to destroy all the surviving Transformers. Stanley Tucci is also in it as a scientist trying to reverse engineer the autobots so he can build his own Transformers. And a blonde minx named Nicola Petz is the eye candy in this one. She plays Marky Mark's daughter.
This movie also busts out the DINOBOTS . . . has John Goodman as the voice of a Transformer named Hound . . . and brings back the old voice of the cartoon Megatron (Frank Welker) to do the voice of a new villain named Galvatron. Hugo Weaving was Megatron for the first three live-action movies. Frank has also been the voice of Scooby Doo for over a decade . . . but he originally started out as the voice of Freddie.
