The upcoming “Transformers 4: Age Of Extinction” hardcore action flick is on its way. It turns out that the opening storyline details have been leaked, and we’re going to see main man, Mark Wahlberg’s daughter, Tessa, get kidnapped after bounty hunters arrive on the scene, and more.
Their opening scenes plotline spoilers read like this: “Four years after the Battle of Chicago, the government is using reverse-engineered leftover technology to build their own Transformers. Joshua (Stanley Tucci) is an arrogant designer who believes the Autobots are “pieces of junk” and creating his own robots is a form of art. He’s fills basically the same role as Agent Simmons (John Turturro) from the previous trilogy.
Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg) is a widowed inventor who lives on a farm with his daughter Tessa (Nicola Peltz), unaware that she’s dating a race car driver, Shane (Jack Reynor). Cade finds a piece of Cybertronian technology and takes it back to his farm, but it is accidentally activated, leading the government and alien bounty hunters to his farm.
The bounty hunters (it’s unclear if they’re connected to the Decepticons) have antigravity weapons which they use to abduct Tessa. In another scene, an entire transatlantic cruise ship is raised out of the ocean and crosses through a busy intersection while the protagonists are in the middle of a car chase.” Stay tuned. The movie is set to show up in Darwin on June 26th, 2014.
In what turned out to be a bizarre night for Super Bowl commercials, the Bud Light ad really takes top prize.
If Bud Light is trying to promote its product as the bringer of random experiences, then mission accomplished.
The closest we can get to describing this video is Don Cheadle and a llama get on an elevator with a guy drinking Bud Light. Then he gets out of the elevator and is challenged to a ping-pong match by none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger. Well worth the three & a half minutes. Check it out.
If there is an 80s icon that isn't in this commercial, it probably wasn't an icon. RadioShack raided the decade and packed 10 years into this 60-second Super Bowl spot.
The numbers are in. INXS has thumped Schapelle.
Seven’s miniseries scored an excellent 1.97m viewers last night, well in front of Nine’s Schapelle telemovie on 1.02m viewers. While INXS managed #1 ranking for the night, Schapelle had to settle for #7, outrated by other titles including Sunday Night, Seven and Nine News and The Block.
Seven won the night with a 37.6% share over Nine’s 27.0%. TEN was 20.5%, ABC 11.9% and SBS 3.1%.
The ratings battle left others in its wake. ABC drama Rake was pushed down to 645,000 viewers.
TEN’s rebooted Reality series So You Think You Can Dance Australia was rejected at just 466,000 viewers, thrashed by My Kitchen Rules (1.64m) and The Block (1.27m). But TEN did have better fortunes with its Sochi coverage.
The rest of the ratings results are:
Seven scored with Sunday Night (1.8m), Seven News (1.29m) and Tricked (433,000).
Nine News was 1.22m for Nine then 60 Minutes (866,000) and Bali: The Dark Side of Paradise (600,000).
A single Winter Olympics event, the Women’s Snowboard Slopefest final, pulled 996,000. TEN Eyewitness News was 587,000. Other Sochi coverage was 454,000 for evening and 440,000 for afternoon.
ABC News (790,000) was best for ABC1 then David Attenborough: Rise of the Animals (752,000).
On SBS ONE it was World News Australia (202,000) and Archeology: A Secret History (200,000).
Much of ONE’s Sochi coverage eclipsed the audience on TEN with early evening (494,000) and afternoon (492,000). The channel did well at a 7.2% share.

Legendary American new wave/punk rock/pop group Blondie have revealed they turned down an offer to be a part of the 2014 Winter Olympics, currently taking place in the Russian city of Sochi.
The band shared a letter of invitation to perform at the major sporting event on their twitter and Facebook pages early Saturday morning, around the time the Opening Ceremony was taking place, which had the words PASS and HUMAN RIGHTS scrawled over the top of it.
The band are one of many groups who have boycotted the Games due to the extreme anti-gay laws of the host country Russia.
The Red Rocks Festival that Blondie were asked to be a part of was headlined by Scissor Sisters in 2012, the year before the country's anti-gay propaganda bill was introduced.
Greg & Ilaria got a good laugh from this.
Check it out.
Okay, seriously, what’s up with this guy?
ACTOR Shia LaBeouf has stormed out of a Berlin Film Festival press conference and then taken to the red carpet with a brown paper bag on his head. Because, you know, why not.
The 27-year-old actor, wearing a dirty baseball cap and chomping on chewing gum, marched out of the press conference about his new film Nymphomaniac Volume I after fielding his first question.
The question, about doing a movie with so much sex, prompted the actor to quote French footballer Eric Cantona’s infamous insult of a pesky press corps, as he marched out.
“When seagulls follow the trawler it is because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea,’’ he said.
He later took to the red carpet wearing a brown paper bag over his head featuring the words “I am not famous anymore”. Hmmm, tantrum, anyone?
It is the latest display of increasingly odd behaviour from the star, whose film credits include Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
Last year, LaBoeuf was accused of plagiarising parts of his short film HowardCantour.com from David Clowes’ 2007 comic Justin M. Damiano.
The actor made an attempt at apologising, first on Twitter and then via skywriting, before getting embroiled in a social media war of words with Girls creator Lena Dunham.
In January he announced he was stepping out of the public eye.
“In light of the recent attacks against my artistic integrity, I am retiring from all public life,” the 27-year-old actor, tweeted. “My love goes out to those who have supported me. #stopcreating.”
About a week later he was accused of headbutting a man in a London bar fight.
His new movie Nymphomaniac, which screened out of competition in Berlin, was directed by scandal-courting Danish director Lars von Trier and stars Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgard, Christian Slater, Uma Thurman and newcomer Stacy Martin.
Australia’s longest running lifestyle program, Getaway, returns for another season this weekend.
This year Jesinta Campbell, Shane Crawford, Charli Robinson and Big Brother housemates Tim Dormer and Darwin’s Tahan Lew Fatt join as special guest presenters alongside Catriona Rowntree, Jason Dundas, and Livinia Nixon.
Getaway returns to 9 Darwin Saturday’s from 5.30pm.
The moguls course at this year's Sochi Olympics has been deemed difficult for several reasons — the course itself, soft snow, warm weather. If that wasn't bad enough, now there's an Imperial planetary invasion to cope with.
Last night everything went Seven’s way big time.
Not only did it win from 6pm onwards, led by My Kitchen Rules on 1.86m, but its network share was a whopping 41.9%.
It dwarfed Nine’s 24.4%, with TEN on 17.6%, ABC on a mere 12.7% and SBS on just 3.4%.
Following MKR were INXS: Never Tear Us Apart (1.77m), Sunday Night (1.68m), Seven News (1.34m) and Tricked (330,000 in 4 cities).
It wasn’t all bad news for Nine with The Block attracting its best figures this season on 1.36m. Next were Nine News (1.14m), but 60 Minutes was thumped (858,000) and Mayday Mayday: Terror on QF32 landed on 586,000.
A Women’s Snowboard Cross Final was best for TEN at 825,000 in 4 cities. Next were TEN Eyewitness News (482,000), Sochi Winter Olympics (424,000 / 391,000) and lastly the troubled So You Think You Can Dance Australia (313,000). The latter is losing ground with every episode and was so low TEN couldn’t even find the space to mention it in their ratings wrap to media this morning. Ouch.
Rake improved on its season premiere, lifting to 739,000 viewers for ABC1. It was followed by David Attenborough’s: Rise of Animals (716,000), ABC News (681,000)and Golf: Women’s Australian Open (318,000).
On SBS ONE it was Archaeology: A Secret History (230,000), SBS World News (218,000) and Blackout (72,000).
Sochi Winter Olympics was best on ONE at 391,000 and a good 6% share.
