Is Chicago having a big year at the movies or what? One of the spring's biggest films ("Divergent") was set here, filmed here and based on a book by a local author. Now two of summer's biggest movies, "Transformers: Age of Extinction" and "Jupiter Ascending," plop the city back on giant screens, this time with even bigger stars (Mark Wahlberg and Channing Tatum/Mila Kunis, respectively). Yes, there also are "Spider-Man" and "X-Men" sequels on the way, plus "Guardians of the Galaxy," Angelina Jolie being evil in "Maleficent" and more Shailene Woodley in "The Fault in Our Stars.
