Ultimately, casting will be down to the movie's director Michael Bay. Previous "Transformers" movies have featured an 'autobot' called Bumblebee based on the Chevrolet Camaro, prompting the company to bring out a Camaro Transformers Special Edition in 2011, which sold more than 1,500 globally, said Michael Albano, a Chevrolet spokesman in Detroit, adding: "We very much look forward to Camaro reprising its role in the upcoming film." The E-jet, which GAC showed off at the Detroit auto show in January, is a concept car, which the company currently has no plans to commercialize. As growth slows in the world's largest auto market from break-neck speeds over the past decade, GAC aims to have exports of its Trumpchi brand account for a fifth of total sales in five years. It currently sells just a few hundred cars overseas. Last year, GAC earned a profit of 1.1 billion yuan on sales of around 13 billion yuan ($2.12 billion). Other Chinese carmakers such as Geely Automobile Holdings Ltd, Beijing Automotive Group and Warren Buffett-backed BYD Co Ltd are stepping up their export efforts. After years of partnerships with foreign automakers, Chinese firms are promoting their home-grown brands under President Xi Jinping's "Chinese Dream" campaign. <br>Source: http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/09/13/china-autos-transformers-idUSL3N0H824W20130913?type=companyNews&feedType=RSS

Chinese e-car set for "Transformers" movie debut



"It was impossible to ignore the goings-on around us," the filmmaker said through an interpreter. "I didn't want to wait for the revolution to end to talk about it." He calls the movie "his own personal form of protest" for democracy and freedom of expression, adding that at 68, he is too old to march and wave placards in the streets. Malas encouraged his actors to improvise dialogue throughout the film and to speak in their own words about what was happening in Syria. "I had them tell their own stories," he said, adding that it is "difficult to call the film fiction." At the same time, he decries labels such as "docudrama," saying the film does not fictionalize actual events, but instead offers commentaries on the way war disrupts daily life. Filming under a shroud of secrecy and danger to his crew in Damascus was http://sarazuel.fotopages.com/?entry=8437482 "very difficult and complicated," he said. <br>Source: http://news.yahoo.com/movie-filmed-amid-syria-unrest-debuts-toronto-festival-134003932.html







Martin Scorsese and Steve Buscemi of "Boardwalk Empire," Laura Dern and Mike White of "Enlightened," Kevin Costner in "Hatfields & McCoys," Jessica Lange and James Cromwell in "American Horror Story," Laura Linney in "The Big C," Claire Danes in "Homeland," Jane Campion and Hunter of "Top of the Lake," David Fincher, Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright of "House of Cards." And it's not just HBO (which for years distanced itself from its own medium with that "It's not TV, it's HBO" tagline) or even cable. Kathy Bates lighted up "Harry's Law" until NBC saw fit to dis the show's large but apparently demographically undesirable audience and cancel it. (Yes, NBC, Bates is not the only one still angry.) Last year, Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore headlined the cast of A&E's surprisingly fantastic "Bates Motel," Kevin Bacon signed on for Fox's horror procedural "The Following," with Hugh Dancy and Laurence Fishburne following suit on NBC's "Hannibal." Though both "The Following" and "Hannibal" received wildly mixed reviews, and more important, no Emmy nominations, the trend shows no signs of slowing. This fall, some stars are returning to their roots Robin Williams in CBS' "The Crazy Ones," Michael J. Fox in NBC's Kim Kardashian Jam "The Michael J. Fox Show," Clark Gregg in ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D," James Spader in NBC's "The Blacklist." And, of course, James Caan in "Back in the Game," Greg Kinnear in the midseason "Rake" Kim Kardashian images and Queen Latifah on her own talk show. <br>Source: http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/tv/showtracker/la-et-st-ca-tv-fall-preview-critics-notebook-20130915,0,1067273.story

Colin Firth to voice Paddington Bear in new movie



But dont trust the trailer. Drinking Buddies is better than that. Its a comedy in the classic sense: not something calculated to punch out a guffaw or two, but a careful movie focused on the language of affection: flirting, friendship (with benefits), narcissism, sex, commitment, and of course love. Our drinking buddies are Kate (Olivia Wilde) and Luke (Jake Johnson). Both work at a Chicago brewery; the former being the face and voice of the operation while the latter helps brew up the liquid bread. Together, our buddies are nearly insufferable bros. Outside of work, each has their own significant other, but on the job our buddies are inseparable. They can hardly talk to each other without getting entangled in jokes, playful touches, and the joys of beer. <br>Source: http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2013/09/13/movie-blog-drinking-buddies-stronger-than-3-2-rom-com/





Movie Blog: ‘Drinking Buddies’ Stronger Kim Kardashian Ray J tape Than 3.2 Rom Com



Australian Oscar-winner Nicole Kidman will play the villain in the movie spearheaded by David Heyman, the producer of the Harry Potter movies. "Paddington will be computer generated, and I will speak his lines with, I suspect, a slight Peruvian flavour," Firth, 53, told the Mail. "Every other character in the film will be real, live human beings. "But the idea is that Paddington will have something of me in his DNA because I???m going to do some sessions wearing one of those helmets with cameras to capture my face muscles, and all that data will somehow be incorporated into Paddington." The hairy marmalade-eater made his first appearance in 1958 in Michael Bond's book A Bear Called Paddington, in which the Brown family find him sitting in Paddington train station, having made his way there from "darkest Peru". The family adopt the bear -- who carries an old hat, a suitcase and a sign reading "Please Look After This Bear" -- and he goes on to have 20 books' worth of adventures. Filming of the new movie starts in September and it is due in cinemas in November 2014. <br>Source: http://www.foxnews.com/world/2013/09/13/colin-firth-to-voice-paddington-bear-in-new-movie/
