Transformers: Dark of the Moon is the most ambitious installment of the trilogy, and fans will weigh in on the 3D element of the feature when it opens nationwide June 29th. With any Transformers feature, the topics usually center on Megan Fox (her rise to stardom and subsequent Transformers exit), Michael Bay’s directing style, and the overall quality of the action.
During a recent press conference, Josh Duhamel and Tyrese Gibson, who play Lennox and Epps, were asked how American soldiers have been influenced by the Transformersfeatures. (Click on the media bar below to hear Duhamel and Gibson)
Mixed reviews didn’t stop Cars 2 from dominating the competition over the weekend, as the animated feature drew in $68 million to take the #1 spot at the box-office. The Cameron Diaz/Justin Timberlake comedy Bad Teacher also did well, as it made $31 million. Here’s the top 10:
1. Cars 2 – $68 million
2. Bad Teacher – $31 million
3. Green Lantern – The picture has made just $89.3 million in two weeks, which is a sub-par performance from such a highly anticipated summer film. Saddled with bad reviews and a disappointing box-office run, Green Lantern’s sequel possibilities appear dim. $18.14 million
4. Super 8 – $12.1 million
5. Mr. Popper’s Penguins – Jim Carrey and penguins have made for a rather frigid domestic output, as it has turned in $39.4 million since its release. Over the weekend, the picture collected $10.3 million
6. X-Men: First Class – $6.6 million this weekend. Although it’s not a blockbuster hit, the feature has done solid business, as it’s amassed $132.8 million domestically.
7. The Hangover Part II – The sequel remains at the top 10 with $5.9 million. To date, the feature has made over $243.9 million at the domestic box-office, making it the #1 film of the summer.

A few weeks ago, the iconic action flick Raiders of the Lost Ark celebrated its 30th anniversary. There have been three sequels to Raiders, and as one might have expected, there are rumors of another Indiana Jones film in the works.
The idea of the Indiana Jones character came from the mind of George Lucas, the creator of Star Wars. Unlike some of his other films, Indiana Jones is much more personal to him. Lucas told us that he named Indiana Jones after his dog, and that the subject of archeology was something he was interested in as a student. (Click on the media bar below to hear George Lucas)
