“Transformers: Age Of Extinction” Movie Trailer


TRANSFORMERS-AGE-OF-EXTINCTION

While many Super Bowl commercials were released ahead of game day, Paramount Pictures and director Michael Bay decided to build anticipation by holding out from releasing any footage whatsoever — and their strategy worked. Fans of the franchise have been dying to see the trailer for Transformers: Age Of Extinction and it’s finally here. This is Mark Wahlberg‘s first Transformers flick, taking over the lead spot from Shia LaBeouf, who starred in the previous threeTransformers movies. Mark Wahlberg, who will be playing a father to a 17-year-old daughter, is the perfect choice to head up a reboot of the Transformers series. While the 42-year-old actor is not necessarily known for his action films, his tough-guy roles in films such as The Departed, The Fighter, and Lone Survivor show that he certainly has the chops to pull off this new and exciting challenge.

The Highest Paid Actors In Hollywood.


Forbes‘ new list has declared Hollywood star Tom Cruise world’s highest earning actor after he took home $75 million between May 2011 to May 2012.  While Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol collected close to $700 million worldwide, the 1980s musical Rock of Agesstarring Cruise wasn’t a big draw.  Last year’s highest-paid actor, Leonardo DiCaprio, placed equal second on the list with Comic actor Adam Sandler after each collected $37 million.  The recent winner of ten Razzie Awards may make critically panned films, such as Jack and Jill, but the movie grossed $150 million worldwide.

The list of top ten earners also includes Johnny Depp, Will Smith and British comedy star Sacha Baron Cohen, who placed joint sixth with earnings of $30 million.

In June, Forbes released its list of the highest paid actresses and Twilight star Kristen Stewart topped the list with $34.5 million, while her male costars tied on the actor’s list at $26.6 million, which is more than third-place Sandra Bullock earned with $25 million. There’s inequality in salaries even at the top.
