Hopefully we will get some sort of official confirmation soon. Keep on checking back in, we will be posting the Armani video as soon as we can get our hands on it. Now who else is excited?!
Edit::: Armani tweeted again saying that the video will premiere tomorrow 9AM EST. Check back in to view the video!
It has just been announced by Warner Home Video that Jonah Hex starring Megan, Josh Brolin and John Malkovich will be released on Blu Ray on October 12th in a BD/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack. There’s few special features seeing as how the movie only made $10 million at the box office and didn’t do so well with critics. The speical features include:
- The Inside Story of Jonah Hex
- The Weird Western Tales of Jonah Hex
- Deleted Scenes
Make sure to grab your copy when it comes out just around the corner and don’t forget to check back in for screen caps of the movie.
Update: Thanks to my friend Zach for some more information. Pricing for the DVD will be $28.98 and Blu-ray/DVD Combo for $35.99 (which I’m pretty sure it will be much cheaper if you buy it the first week the movie comes out).
Love The Way You Lie director Joseph Kahn sat down to talk Megan Fox with Vibe. Kahn admits:
I initially thought it was a long shot to try and cast Megan Fox for the lead role. Seriously, before every video you think to yourself ‘let’s cast a girl like Megan Fox.
Fox accepted the role with out hesitation on the account of her being a huge Eminem fan. Shocked by the ease of pulling such an in-demand starlet, Joseph used the opportunity to create his own story rather than base the characters on the artists. Kahn explained:
We wanted to make a specific story about two people—Meg and Dom—not a video that was representative of all couples or all domestic violence situations. I’m not saying that all couples fight this way. I just want people just to be able to identify with the characters and recognize that they’ve seen relationships like this where two people are together that are completely wrong for each other and things spiral out of control.
Kahn managed shoot both Eminem and Rihanna’s part in one day before going back and completing the video with Fox and Monaghan. The director also told VIBE he doesn’t think the video would have made as big of an impact without Megan’s performance.
Megan was the key to this video. I feel like people constantly pick on her because she’s so beautiful but I’ll tell you as a director the reason why their scenes in the video feel so real is because in the moment they were real. When the camera stopped you could see their bodies still shivering and their breath.
The scene where Dom smashes through the wall, Megan keeps her face there and reacts to the camera, instead of turning away from his fist, which would be the natural reaction but the audience would get denied her facial expressions. It was an incredible act of vulnerability and allowed the audience into the moment. That’s the difference between and actress and movie star.
Mind you, Eminem and Rihanna shattered Youtube records last Thursday (Aug. 5) for the most views in a 24-hour period with their visual ride for Love The Way You Lie, bringing in over 6.6 million hits on the first day of its release.
It was announced on Tuesday (August 3) that Eminem‘s video for Love the Way You Lie will premiere on Thursday on MTV at 9PM ET/PT before Jersey Shore. The video was directed by Joseph Kahn (who’s worked with Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Kylie Minogue and many other huge celebrities). They filmed in Los Angeles and features Rihanna, who sings the hook, along with actors Megan and Dominic Monaghan. Megan and Dominic are set to play “a couple going through the extremes of an abusive relationship”. At a press release Eminem is quoted saying:
Joseph and I worked pretty closely together to make sure we got this right. Trying to make this tough subject work visually is a challenge. It was great to have Rihanna, Megan and Dominic on board for this. … They really brought it and made this video super-powerful.
The waiting is almost over, I personally cannot wait any longer. Make sure to check back into Foxy-Megan to watch the video in its entirety.
Edit:: Thanks to reader Apone for this interesting extra piece of information.
According to Yahoo Finance, Megan donated her fee for her video appearance to Sojourn House, a shelter for abused women. Sojourn provides battered women and their children a safe space to regroup, rebuild, and reestablish their self-esteem and lives.
Congratulations are in store for Megan, as she has become the new face for Giorgio Armani Cosmetics. Starting in October Megan will appear in the Armani ads photographed by Craig McDean (who shot her W magazine shoot), with makeup by Linda Cantello. Megan tells WWD:
Mr. Armani is an iconic visionary for all things fashion, I’m honored to be associated with him and part of this campaign.
Can’t wait to see what the shoots going to look like!
ComingSoon.Net caught up with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura and got the inside on Megan’s departure from the Transformers franchise. As you all know, the script for the movie was all set for Transformers 3 when reports of Megan being fired and/or her leaving on her own came out. Di Bonaventure tells ComingSoon:
It’s one of those things that built to a pressure point. I think she knew and we did, I think we all tried really hard to make it work together, it just wasn’t working.
His response when asked about how Megan’s departure affected the production:
Definitely some script chances for sure. I wouldn’t say a tremendous number, but yeah, absolutely there were some changes, and I think as we’re going along, we’re discovering new ones we have to make as a result of them.
He also goes on to saying that he thinks Transformers 3 will most likely be the last installment, at least for him and director Michael Bay. But that doesn’t mean Paramount won’t reboot the series with new talent down the line.
It may not be the end of the line of Transformers for Hasbro and Paramount, but I would think so. (For) Michael, I’m sure it is. He’s spent a lot of years working on one thing.
I think this gives us a little insight on what really happened. As much as I hate how everything went down in this situation, I still plan on seeing Tranformers 3 in theaters when it comes out. Maybe not at midnight like I did for Revenge of The Fallen but I still want to see it… despite Megan not being in the third installment.
Megan is engaged once again according to sources such as Us Weekly, Just Jared & Gossip Cop. Us Weekly were first to report that the couple who have been together since 2004 were engaged, saying that Brian popped the question to Megan on June 1st. Supposedly, Brian asked Megan along the beach at the Four Seasons Hualalai Hotel while the two were in Hawaii. After popping the question, out of all the excitement they somehow lost the ring, a source says:
I saw her jumping up and down, later, I saw a half dozen staff sifting through the sand.
The 2-carat ring, which the pair picked out together from Excalibur jewelry store in Beverly Hills still remains missing in action. Another source goes on saying:
Security and maintenance staff spent a couple of hours looking for it, no one found it.
As you may remember, the two were previously engaged for 2 years but called off the engagement in 2009. Congrats to both Megan & Brian!
News hit the internet yesterday afternoon of reports saying Megan was dropped out of the upcoming Transformers movie. Deadline was first to announce the news saying:
Paramount won’t be picking up Megan Fox’s option on Transformers 3 — and that it was “ultimately” director Michael Bay’s decision. (So he gets his revenge for her remark comparing him to “Hitler”.) Right now Bay et al are finishing up the script for the threequel and “giving Shia a new love interest makes more sense for the story,” an insider tells me. Bay will start casting immediately for the new female co-star.
Soon after other sources like: ET Online, CNN, & E! Online all confirmed the news. Later in the night People spoke to reps for Megan:
Megan Fox will not be starring in Transformers 3,. “It was her decision not to return. She wishes the franchise the best.
There is still no real confirmation from Bay on the matter. The whole situation seems extremely odd to me personally. We showed you pictures of Megan filming on set of the Transformers 3 in Los Angeles, California on the 2nd of this month so for her to just quit when they’ve already started filming doesn’t make sense at all, if that really is the case. If reports of Bay firing Megan are true then why did he wait this long to do so? Why drag it on and make us all think she was coming back when in reality he knew she wasn’t? What makes me mad the most about this is that he said she would be returning for the third installment, waiting a couple of months, and then went back on his word. The only real reason for this to happen, in my opinion, are that Bay and Megan had a huge blow-out for some reason.
Don’t get me wrong, I do respect Megan’s decision if it really was hers to leave. But this is, in a way, disappointing for me. I loved Megan in the first 2 films and was really excited to see her in the third movie. As much as people want to deny it, Mikaela is a part of the Transformers film series. To watch a Transformers movie without Megan as Mikaela or having someone else play Mikaela doesn’t seem right. I guess only time will tell what the real story is behind all this.
Some great news has just been announced. Transformers 3 will be shooting at the Kennedy Space Center. Filming will last about eight days in early September. Film Director Michael Bay shot scenes for 1998′s Armageddon at at Kennedy Space center. Space Coast Film Commissioner Bonnie King said Bay is familiar with the area, which is why he chose it again for Transformers 3. Scenes from the upcoming movie may possibly be filmed in other sites in Brevard County. King said location scouts have visited the area for two to three days at a time, looking at other areas to shoot. Those included are Patrick Air Force Base; Space Coast Regional Airport, in Titusville; Marritt Island Airport; Lone Cabbage Fish Camp, in Cocoa; and a Cocoa Beach House. Scouts also checked out some swaps and went into the woods. Michael Bay, Shia LaBeouf, Megan and John Malkovich are all expected to be in Central Florida for shooting in September. King said the film crew will be working around the scheduled launch of space shuttle Discovery on Sept. 16. The blockbuster movie is expected to bring $2M in boost to local economy.
I’m so excited for this news. I’ll be planning my trip to the KSC to see if I can catch any filming and see if I can finally meet Megan for the first time.
Some very good news hit the web yesterday; the release & trailer date have both been confirmed for Jonah Hex. I’ve been pretty anxious to watch a trailer for the movie.

As for the release date, Jonah Hex will hit theaters on June 18th (it was originally scheduled for an August release). I’m so pumped for this!
