A few months ago, Mark Walhberg and producing partner Stephen Levinson announced Alien Bounty Hunter, a new series the duo hope they can help build from the ground up from the pages of a comic book to the subject of a blockbuster franchise. And now io9 has a look at the world that could one day come to a silver screen…
All the stories you’ve heard about a Michael Bay film set are true. It’s fast, loud, intense and frankly, it’s kind of amazing. Six cameras shoot simultaneously, ranging from 2D to IMAX 3D. Dozens of real Navy SEALS pour out of a crashed ship. Hundreds of live rounds are being fired. Several massive explosions go off.…
Say what you want about the Transformers movies, and we all have, but there’s no denying they deliver spectacle on a level unto themselves. That trend looks like it’ll continue with the fifth film, Transformers: The Last Knight.
Transformers: The Last Knight only recently got its title, but the marketing machine is up and running already with a cryptic teaser for something coming next week.

Cross The Six Million Dollar Man off the list of classic TV shows that had yet to get a big screen adaptation. After a several months of development, an updated version called The Six Billion Dollar Man starring Mark Wahlberg now officially has a release date and brand new director.
Later this week, M. Night Shyamalan is releasing a new movie called The Visit. And it’s actually pretty great. Scary, unpredictable, kind of like the movies that made him a household name. It’s unlike The Happening, the movie that almost killed his career.
“I’ve got an idea for an alien bounty hunter franchise.” “Oh yeah? What should we call it?” “How about... Alien Bounty Hunter.” “Perfect!” “Love it!” *High fives and bro hugs all around.*
Contrary to earlier rumors that Mark Wahlberg's first appearance in the Transformers franchise, Wahlberg himself has said that he's contracted for a "couple" more and that he expects to be back on the set "soon."
The latest rumor is that the perennially stalled Six Million Dollar Man film has found its star in Mark Wahlberg. It's an unsourced, unconfirmed rumor, so it may mean nothing. Alternately, prepare for an onslaught of jokes about Wahlberg's clueless Transformer character reacting to the abilities of Steve Austin.

We're hesitant about Seth MacFarlane and Mark Wahlberg's strange comedy Ted, mostly because the bear (voiced by MacFarlane) is basically his Family Guy character Peter Griffin with fur. Then again, some of the jokes are pretty funny. Watch these four clips, and let us know what you think: adorable magical story…
Looks as though the magically animated teddy bear gets his party on, big time, in Seth MacFarlane's Ted, judging from a dozen high-res photos that just came out. There is something about the sight of a teddy bear in a suit, or a teddy bear on a couch with four hot babes, that leaves you thinking this could have some…

Hat tip to Ash (Not From Pallet Town)!
Mark Wahlberg doesn't pull his punches these days, and he's decided to come forward and explain just why his Planet of the Apes movie wasn't as good as James Franco's. But who does he blame?
