Mark Wahlberg has covered the July 2014 issue of “GQ” British. Isn’t it awesome that Mark is covering yet another magazine cover this year?! You can check out a preview of the cover below and view the full version in our photo gallery. The cover will be replaced with a larger size once I get scans up in our gallery. Enjoy!

From gang runner to show runner, Mark Wahlberg has always been a scrapper. Whether taking the lead (see Transformers: The Age of Extinction next month) or as a producer, Boston’s troubled blue-collar kid is now Hollywood’s heavy hitter. With one Oscar-winner under his belt, cinema’s best player-coach is squaring up for another round. Matthew Spektor meets the actor in Beverly Hills to discuss fatherhood, Hollywood and his formidable work ethic.

The new issue of GQ is out 29 May priced £3.99. GQ is also available on tablet devices.

Suit, £2205. Shirt, £240. Both by Giorgio Armani. armani.com

Mark Wahlberg Says New “Transformers” Is More Than Meets the Eye

Excited by the Transformers: Age of Extinction trailer? Star of the relaunched franchise Mark Wahlberg wants fans to know that it only gets better from there.

“I think a lot of time, moviegoers are kind of tricked by trailers. They’ll see a cool moment and go, ‘Oh, I can’t wait to see that,’ but once they see [the trailer] they’ve seen the best bits of the movie,” Wahlberg told IGN.com in a recent interview. But he said that that’s not the case with Michael Bay’s fourth outing with Hasbro’s robots in disguise.

“Recruiting the dinobots — it’s pretty elaborate in how it happens,” he offered as a hint. “[It’s] not like Optimus has a whistle and they come running, he’s really got to convince them to come onboard and fight this fight, and it’s pretty cool how it’s done. I think people are definitely going to get their money’s worth, it’s well worth the wait. And I think, for the die-hard fans, they’re going to have a whole new thing to look forward to in the future.”

When pressed for details of what that “whole new thing” could be, Wahlberg said that audiences should “just expect to be blown away,” adding “When we saw parts of the movie, and how it’s come together, you know, you have a whole new cast, you have a whole new threat, new enemies and all the things that you liked, with all the explosions and the action, but it’s just a little bit more realistic, a little bit more believable, I think.”

It’s strange to think that adding gigantic robot dinosaurs could make a franchise more realistic, but the proof will be in the cinematic pudding. Transformers: Age of Extinction will be released June 27.

Mark Wahlberg: “Doing Ted Prepared Me” For ‘Transformers’

When you think of Mark Wahlberg’s body of work, the two movies you’d never think to put together are Ted and Transformers: Age of Extinction. But Mark revealed the former movie had a big hand in preparing him for the latter, at least where the CGI was concerned. In Sydney to present 15 minutes of exclusive footage on Wednesday night, Mark walked the red carpet at Event Cinemas on George Street and told POPSUGAR Australia, “Doing Ted prepared me, so that was a good little kind of rehearsal. Obviously it’s so much bigger, so much more going on. But actually I like the idea of not working with too many actors now. It’s just you, somebody doing the voice [of the CGI] — it’s pretty cool.” Keep reading for more of what Mark had to say, including how he physically prepared for the action role and why work trips aren’t always the greatest.

  • On what people can look forward to in the next movie: “Hopefully they’ll expect something completely different, because it’s a whole reboot. It’s a new cast, new enemies, new stakes. So it’s pretty different.”
  • On preparing for the role: “For this one I just had to be prepared to be thrown around for 12 to 15 hours a day, for five-and-a-half to six months. It’s not really about being in good shape for the eye, as opposed to being able to get out there and perform every day.”
  • On whether he prefers doing drama or comedy: “I prefer to do the complete opposite of the last thing I did. So I like switching it up.”
  • On working with CGI on such a huge scale: “Doing Ted prepared me, so that was a good little kind of rehearsal. Obviously it’s so much bigger, so much more going on. But actually I like the idea of not working with too many actors now. It’s just you, somebody doing the voice [of the CGI] — it’s pretty cool.”
  • On how his kids will be involved in this movie: “They shot a scene, but we don’t know if it will make the cut. We’ll have to wait and see.”
  • On his favourite Transformer growing up, and if it’s the same now: “Optimus Prime, absolutely.”
  • On what he likes or dislikes about Australia: “The only thing I dislike is that I haven’t been able to do anything other than work! But when I was here with Will Ferrell for The Other Guys we did get to play golf. But I’d like to actually go places and do things, and see the city — hopefully next time.”
