He first joined the franchise with a role in 2014’s Transformers: Age of Extinction. And Mark Wahlberg is back for the fifth installment of the Michael Bay action saga, as he was spotted filming in Detroit, Michigan on Saturday. The 45-year-old was seen falling backwards out of a bright yellow Chevy Camaro as he shot with Autobot ‘co-star’ Bumblebee.

Mark showed off his sculpted physique in a long-sleeved, fitted navy blue sweater coupled with a pair of slate grey trousers. The father-of-four finished off the look with a pair of black oxfords, and wore his hair slicked back for the scenes. He was seen sitting in the driver’s seat of the bright yellow car, which itself is a character in the movie, Autobot Bumblebee.

In a series of photographs from the Detroit set, Mark can be seen tumbling backwards as the driver’s seat turns and spills out of the vehicle. In between takes Mark could be seen protecting himself from the sun as he huddled beneath a large, black umbrella. And the fan friendly star also used time in between takes to greet some fans, while promoting his family’s restaurant, Wahlburgers, by sporting a baseball cap with its logo. The day before he had been seen wielding a sword while looking a bit disheveled and wearing distressed clothing to film scenes in front of a green screen.

He was joined by co-stars Josh Duhamel and Laura Haddock as they shot the scenes by the green screen and a giant fan. Anthony Hopkins, Tyrese Gibson, and Ken Watanabe also star in the upcoming sequel, directed by Michael Bay. Transformers: The Last Knight is due in theaters on June 23, 2017.  [dailymail.co.uk]

Donnie Wahlberg, star of Blue Bloods, told his wife, Jenny McCarthy, that the current Pokémon GO craze is giving him flashbacks to the Pokémon phenomenon from the 90’s that almost put him in the poor house.

Posters may have the hardest job in all of movie marketing. How do you explain to an audience what an entire film is about in only a single image? Well, when everybody already knows the subject matter, it means you can focus on making that one image say a great deal. Mark Wahlberg’s new film Patriot’s Day tells the story of what happened after the Boston Marathon bombing, and its poster is both beautiful and chilling.

The attack on the Boston Marathon in 2013, one of the most well-known sporting events in the nation, resonated with millions of people. As such, it became a rallying cry for unity and patriotism, as other events in the past have also done. The Patriots Day poster gives that feeling of national unity, while also remembering where the event took place, by giving us a makeshift American flag, made from the laces of running shoes. The poster doesn’t explicitly tell you what it’s about, many, especially those in the Boston area, don’t need to be reminded, the rest of us don’t need to think too long to figure it out.

Along with the poster, CBS Films also released a new synopsis of Patriots Day:

In the aftermath of an unspeakable act of terror, Police Sergeant TOMMY SAUNDERS (Mark Wahlberg) joins courageous survivors, first responders and investigators in a race against the clock to hunt down the bombers before they strike again. Weaving together the stories of Special Agent RICHARD DESLAURIERS (Kevin Bacon), Police Commissioner ED DAVIS (John Goodman), Sergeant JEFFREY PUGLIESE (J.K. Simmons) and nurse CAROL SAUNDERS (Michelle Monaghan) this visceral and unflinching chronicle captures the suspense of the most sophisticated manhunt in law enforcement history and the strength of the people of Boston.

Patriots Day is going all out in an attempt to truly capture the events of that time period. Boston Red Sox player David Ortiz, who gave a memorable, and viral, speech following the suspects arrest, will actually recreate his speech for the film, in order to add a layer of additional authenticity to the film.

Patriots Day is one of two upcoming films that will deal with the Boston Marathon Bombing. While the Mark Wahlberg film will focus on the manhunt for the suspects that followed the traumatic event, Jake Gyllenhaal’s Boston Strong will deal more with how the attack impacted the people of Boston on a more personal level.

Patriots Day is scheduled for a limited release this December, before seeing its wide release in January of 2017. It’s clear Patriots sees itself as a major Oscar contender, as many films based on real life events tend to be. It’s certainly looking to tug at our heart strings this holiday season.

The Ted star will also produce the adaptation, alongside his frequent collaborator Stephen Levinson, whom he worked with on TV series Entourage, film The Gambler and the upcoming Patriots Day, about the Boston Marathon bombing. The film is being made by Paramount, but a writer and director are yet to be announced, The Tracking Board reports.

Bethlehem, which was originally released in 2013, tells the story of the complicated relationship between an Israeli Secret Service officer and his teenage Palestinian informant that grows even more morally conflicted, when the young man learns his employers are plotting to assassinate his radical brother. Cutting between conflicting points of view, the film portrays characters torn apart by conflicting loyalties.

Yuval directed the original film, and co-wrote the script with Ali Wakad over a period spanning from 2007 to 2010. Gaining critical acclaim, the film was screened at the Venice Film Festival, where it won the Fedeora Award for Best Film.

It was also selected as the Israeli entry for the Foreign Language Film at the 86th Academy Awards, after winning six Ophir Awards (Israeli Oscars) including Best Screenplay, but was not nominated.

Yuval has since gone on to break into the mainstream market, directing supernatural horror for STX Entertainment and The Last of the Tribe, which is set in the Amazon.

Mark, 45, is no stranger to acting in Hollywood versions of foreign films, having starred in Martin Scorsese’s The Departed, a 2002 remake of the Hong Kong crime-thriller Infernal Affairs.

The coming of a Wahlburgers to downtown Detroit (as one of six metro Detroit locations) is causing a lot of buzz in the city.

Over the weekend, Actor Mark Wahlberg, who is also part of the Wahlburgers chain and appears on the “Wahlburgers” television show, did a press appearance at their new Greektown location on Monroe that’s under construction.

He said that it’ll be four weeks until the Wahlburgers is ready to open, and he encouraged people to head downtown and hang out. The city is definitely abuzz with the Transformers 5 filming and the annual set of events that happens.

“We’re shooting the movie in town we’re going to be down here every night hanging out, come on down,” said Wahlberg. You can see him in the video above.

Mark Wahlberg owns the chain with his brothers Paul Wahlberg and Donnie Wahlberg, who is also an actor.

That would mean the opening is coming in last week of July, for you Wahlburger fans out there. It’s part of a greater plan to expand to 118 Wahlburger locations.

The new Wahlburgers in Greektown will be at 569 Monroe Street in downtown Detroit.

Among those hoping the Red Sox could avoid a four-game sweep at the hands of the Chicago White Sox was Donnie Wahlberg, who was cheering for the home town team from sweet seats near home plate. Wonder if the “Blue Bloods” star stopped into the Wahlburgers around the corner from the ballpark.

With their bulging muscles and Boston accents, the Wahlberg brothers have a reputation for being one of the toughest sibling acts around – but that didn’t stop Donnie Wahlberg from tearing up when reminiscing about their humble beginnings.

While being interviewed with his New Kids on the Block bandmates by his wife Jenny McCarthy on her SiriusXM show, the singer, 46, got emotional recalling how Mark, 45, credited him for his success during the band’s 2011 concert at Fenway Park.

“I’m gonna cry,” Wahlberg told McCarthy in front of the intimate group of fans gathered in the SiriusXM studios. “He was the original member of the band with me.”

According to the star, the memories of those early moments with his younger brother are especially important now that both are busy with their own lives and careers.

“Obviously we’re brothers and partners in business and our relationship is fine, but it’s different,” he said. “We’ve grown so far apart, just through work and career and things that are important.”

Wahlberg explained to his wife during the interview that Mark’s introduction struck a cord because it reminded him of the band’s very first show where his brother was also the one to call them up on stage.

“When Mark acknowledged that he introduced us at the first show and now it’s come full circle to acknowledging us and introducing us at Fenway, I’d forgotten that he did that,” he said of the moment that made him realize how much they had accomplished over the years.

Added the singer: “That’s what moved me. It’s the look how far we’ve all come.”
