Tyrese: There Will Be Blood

While at this week’s Cannes Film Festival for the world premiere of Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, Transformers star Shia LaBeouf made some surprisingly candid criticisms of the second film even as he promised the third movie would be better.

“When I saw the second movie, I wasn’t impressed with what we did,” LaBeouf told Associated Press. “There were some really wild stunts in it, but the heart was gone.” The actor said that with Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen director Michael Bay “went so big that it became too big, and I think you lost the anchor of the movie.” He stressed that the human relationships must take precedence over simply seeing robots fighting robots.

The actor promised a bloodier, more tragic Transformers 3. “There’s going to be a lot of death, human death. This time, they’re targeting humans,” he revealed. “It’s going to be the craziest action movie ever made, or we failed.”

Tyrese Invents Comic Book Superhero

LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) — Tyrese Gibson is far from the first singer to make the transition from music to movies. However, the “Transformers” star is blazing a whole new trail with his latest crossover venture. The actor/singer/model has partnered with Apple to develop his own comic book series called “Mayhem,” and he’s doing it in a very nontraditional way — digitally.

“There was an experience that I felt was pretty limiting as far as the comic book experience itself on paper,” says Gibson, who stresses that he did not grow up reading comic books and is not a comic book veteran. “[So] I set up this technology with my team and this is the first-ever digital comic book [on iTunes] in the history of comic books.”
