So MTV is reporting that Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen will run 147 minutes, or “four minutes longer than the original film,” according to Michael Bay. Which can only mean one thing — my prayers of an even longer, more drawn-out comedy bit where Shia LaBeouf‘s parents still think he’s masturbating, despite (or maybe even because of?) the lingering presence of giant robots nearby, have been answered!
Movieline launched in 1989, and was a snarky Hollywood lifeline for many of those flung across the country yet still hungry for smart, barbed film commentary and insightful, off-the-typical-beaten-path interviews with both up-and-comers and opinionated, loose-mouthed celebs. Now it’s baaaaack, entering a crowded online marketplace, don’tcha know, with a slew of newswire and review content, as well as a Q&A interview with Emily Blunt. Things will really take off once they get those old print issues catalogued, which really should have been part of any launch. And we’ll see how begging for “insider tips” plays out. Still, adjust your entertainment bookmarks accordingly… especially if Joe Queenan gets to make another movie.
