Transformers 2, Jonah Hex, Spider-Man 4: June 22nd Comic Reel

TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN

Sure, you can't see the movie yet, but that doesn't mean that it hasn't opened internationally. According to The Hollywood Reporter, things are going well in non-US countries. "Playing in only two key foreign markets, Paramount's 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen' from director Michael Bay nonetheless premiered at No. 1 on the international circuit during the weekend, rolling up $20 million from 846 locations. The sci-fi action sequel to 'Transformers,' Bay's 2007 smash that grossed $389 million overseas, opened at No. 1 in the U.K. ($14.1 million from 517 screens) and Japan ($5.8 million from 329 sites)."

Superhero Hype also has a transcript of an interview from a Moscow press conference, where Michael Bay spilled the beans on the difference IMAX makes. "It has probably about a minute more of footage," Bay said. "It has some more fighting footage that takes place in the forest. There's some additional stuff with Devastator. I have not seen it yet in IMAX. How does it look?"

There's also a new clip at IGN and another extended clip floating around YouTube.

SPIDER-MAN 4

A scooper wrote Superhero Hype with a tidbit from this weekend's Wizard World Philly. "During a Q&A with Ted Raimi and Michael Papajohn at Wizard World Philadelphia today, Papajohn (aka the carjacker/original killer of Uncle Ben from the 'Spider-Man' films) said that he would be reprising his role for 'Spider-Man 4.' He then proceeded to say if he told us what his role entailed, he'd have to kill us."

Starring Tobey Maguire, release date: May 6, 2011.

CONAN

Remember on Friday when a source as prestigious as the Hollywood Reporter said that actor Roland Kickinger was taking on the role of Cimmeria's finest? Latino Review says nein. "I have a super solid source at both Lionsgate and Millenium and they laughed their @$$es off!" Hm.

Discussing the Master of Magnetism, he said, "There have been some preliminary discussions. I think, at Fox, they're trying to decide if making a young X-Men film makes the most sense next, does making a 'Magneto' make the most sense next. They're just trying to decide internally who's next up."
