The Real Reason Why You Don’t See Megan Fox In Movies Anymore

Remember Megan Fox? Of course you do! She exploded to superstardom after Michael Bay cast her in the Transformers franchise. Back in 2007, she was a regular fixture on ‘Hottest Woman Alive’ lists, and her name was all over entertainment news. So what happened to her?

Fox has barely been seen in recent years. She was booted from the third Transformers movie without any explanation and more or less disappeared from Hollywood altogether. Sure she’s done a handful of movie and TV appearances since, but any movie she’s stared in during the better part of the last decade seems to have been a colossal flop. Perhaps Fox just burnt out? After all, she was basically plucked from obscurity and thrust into the spotlight. Even Fox acknowledges that she was overexposed. “I was part of a movie that [the studio] wanted to make sure would make $700 million, so they oversaturated the media with their stars,” Fox told Nylon. “I don’t want to have people get completely sick of me before I’ve ever even done something legitimate.” However, it turns out Fox’s disappearance from the spotlight is much more complicated than being overexposed… Back in 2009, at the height of Fox’s popularity, some magazines were calling for a boycott of Fox to end the overexposure. But it was actually Transformers director, Michael Bay, with a little nudge from Steven Spielberg, who ended Megan’s career. It turns out Bay was not too happy about some comments Fox had publicly made about her Transformers director. At the time, she was just 23 years old, and perhaps giving that much fame to someone so young led to saying some things she really shouldn’t have. Fox told Wonderland Magazine that Bay was “like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation. He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is.” She continued, “So he’s a nightmare to work for but when you get him away from the set, and he’s not in director mode, I kind of really enjoy his personality because he’s so awkward, so hopelessly awkward. He has no social skills at all. And it’s endearing to watch him.” It’s not exactly the kind of thing you should be saying about the person who has the ability to fire you! It took Bay two years to publicly comment on what Megan had said, but he revealed that it was Steven Spielberg who urged him to fire her immediately, particularly because of her comparison between Bay and Hitler. “I wasn’t hurt, because I know that’s just Megan. Megan loves to get a response,” Bay told GQ. “And she does it in kind of the wrong way. I’m sorry, Megan. I’m sorry I made you work 12 hours. I’m sorry that I’m making you show up on time. Movies are not always warm and fuzzy.” Megan has since apologized and admits that time period was a real low point in her career. However, she credits her firing to a true life lesson. “I wouldn’t have learned as quickly as I did,” she claims. “All I had to do was apologize – and I refused. I was so self-righteous at 23, I couldn’t see it was for the greater good. I really thought I was Joan of Arc.” Fox, now 31, is a busy mother of three children. She claims she never planned to be an actress forever and always felt she had another calling. While it can’t be said if she’ll ever return to previous levels of fame, Fox admits to her mistake. Check out the video below for more from Fox on her career and family life: I guess we’ll always have Transformers, right?

‘Breaking Bad’ sequel movie reportedly coming to AMC, Netflix

Aaron Paul may be reprising his role as Jesse Pinkman.

“If the rumors are true, Breaking Bad is coming back with a sequel on Netflix and AMC.

A Breaking Bad movie starring Aaron Paul as Jesse will be coming to Netflix and AMC, according to unnamed sources cited by The Hollywood Reporter Wednesday. This latest rumor follows up on the rumor previously reported by the same outlet that there’s a two-hour Breaking Bad movie in the works with the original show’s creator Vince Gilligan at the helm.

Aaron Paul will be reprising his role as Jesse Pinkman in the movie, THR reports. The movie will be a sequel to the events of Breaking Bad, which means it’s unlikely we’d see Walter White again, but perhaps some other familiar faces could pop up.

Last we saw Pinkman, he was escaping from a gang of Nazis headed up by Uncle Jack, who were holding him hostage as their own personal meth cook.

Back in November, Bryan Cranston (who played Walter White on the show) confirmed that a movie is in fact in the works on the Dan Patrick Show.

Interestingly, the sources said that Netflix would have first-run rights for the movie, but that it would still air on AMC later.

Gilligan, who sources say is writing and directing the Breaking Bad movie, will be working alongside Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul executive producers Melissa Bernstein and Mark Johnson.

It’s not a big surprise that there would be a direct follow-up to Breaking Bad, which won numerous awards and is heralded by many as one of the greatest shows in modern television, if not of all time. The prequel-ish show Better Call Saul has also received a ton of critical acclaim.

Neither Netflix nor AMC immediately responded to Mashable’s request for comment.”

‘Serenity’ is hiding a huge, relentlessly weird twist

“Here’s the best spoiler-free description I can give you of Serenity: It’s Matthew McConaughey starring in a Nicolas Cage movie. Not a normal one either. We’re talking about one of those weird cult favorites, like The Wicker Man or 2018’s Mandy.

This isn’t a review of Serenity, nor is it any kind of critical look at the movie (though some of that might seep in since it’s hard to talk about Serenity without explaining how it lands). If you’re reading these words right now, it’s because you want to know what the big deal is with this bonkers assemblage of film frames. I’m going to tell you.

Here’s your one and only spoiler warning. I will say: Serenity probably shines the brightest when you see it spoiler-free. But I also understand that some people would rather know. So past this point, the resplendent absurdity of Serenity will be on naked display in all its terrible glory.

THE PLOT

Where to start? The movie bares its deeply weird tendencies slowly, so I’ll do the same. Serenity is about an obsessed fisherman with an implausible name, Baker Dill (McConaughey). Baker is a longtime resident of Plymouth, a Florida Keys fishing island that’s more Maui than Martha’s Vineyard (but everyone’s poor). He’s also a man on a mission………………………………………………………………..”

 The Curse Of La Llorona Is The Scariest Horror Movie You’ll See This Spring

“The Curse of La Llorona is being released on April 19th. It tells the tale of ta legend from Mexican folklore.

According to the myth, La Llorona’s real name is Maria. She came from a poor village, but her beauty won the heart of a wealthy nobleman. They fell in love, got married, and had two baby boys.

However, the nobleman spent most of his time traveling. When he returned home, he paid less and less attention to Maria, slowly falling out of love with her.

One day, he brought a new, younger woman home and said goodbye to his children. Maria was devastated. In a blind rage, she took her children to the river and drowned them.

When she came to her senses, she regretted what she had done and searched the river for her two boys, but they could not be found. Not long after, Maria ended up dying on the river as well. However, she was not allowed to enter the afterlife until she found her children.

Now, La Llorona is stuck between the living and dead realms, weeping while she searches for her boys. She causes misfortune to everyone around her. If you hear her cries, you are meant to run the opposite way — especially if you are a young child. La Llorona kidnaps kids, mistaking them for her own, and drowns them in the river too……………………………………………………”
