BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
With the release of 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi, let's take a few moments to celebrate the kinetic filmmaking energy of Michael Bay in all of his glory. He really does deserve it.
Michael Bay doesnít do small or subtle. The dude is bold and brash, an attitude that comes across in his on screen work, and also in the way he talks about directing Transformers 5.
Itís fairly obvious what needs to happen next, right? Michael Bay needs to film himself watching all of the Transformers movies, so he can live stream it on the Internet. Something tells me the theater would explode.†
For the last couple of years, itís been difficult to figure out Shia LaBeouf. He went from child star to headlining blockbuster franchises almost overnight. For that reason, we tried to cut the guy some slack when he appeared to be in the early stages of losing his mind.
Akiva Goldsman is in control of the latest batch of Transformers films, and he's revealed why there will always be humans starring opposite the robots in disguise.
Believe it or not, we almost got to see Aziz Ansari in a Transformers movie. It's probably a good thing we didn't though, as his reason for passing is the best one possible.
The Transformers Cinematic Universe is not planning on taking a break anytime soon. As Paramount Pictures previously addressed, the studio has big plans for the Autobots and Decepticons taking over the big screen, and now we know just how big those plans are. Hasbro has revealed that the Transformers writers room came up with enough material to confidently confirm four more Transformers sequels.
In addition to Transformers 5, the Transformers franchise has also set their sights beyond live action. There is now an animated movie in the works, one which may not have humans hogging the spotlight.
The upcoming Transformers 5 will deviate from the franchise's typical formula, and feature dual storylines that take the saga of the Autobots and Decepticons in a new direction.
Each of every one of us still dabbles in nibbling a quick slice of cake or three now that weíre a bit older. Itís just that you canít help but feel guilty when you do. However, if I was to be presented with the same spectacular Transformers cake as below, I think the overwhelming feeling of childish joy would soon return to me.
The Transformers franchise is a box-office powerhouse, having collectively made billions. Yet, itís a different story when it comes to deep narratives that stand the test of time. Thus, the studio has corralled a number of prominent writers from the world of television with designs to ensure that this insanely profitable IP continues its world-wrecking ways at the box-office.
Will Mark Wahlberg reprise his role as Cade Yeager in Transformers 5? He needs to talk to Michael Bay first.
The folks behind Transformers have spent the last few weeks assembling a writing team that will guide the franchise into the future, and while there are already some big names involved, today the group got just a little bit bigger.
Michael Bay produces the Transformers movies. He also produces the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies. It was really only a matter of time before he used one to give himself a pat on the back for the other.
Transformers is on the verge of a major shift. The era of Michael Bay-directed movies in the franchise ended with Transformers: Age of Extinction, but a new era has begun, and itís being ushered in by a large brain trust of both experienced and up-and-coming writers.
That big name writer's room for Transformers is not such a boy's club anymore as they've hired two new female writers.
The Transformers film franchise continues to chug along nicely behind the scenes with Paramount Pictures and Hasbro Toys collectively planning to up an ante thatís already in the billions. However, it seems that one of those plans could involve a spinoff movie focusing on one key Autobot in Bumblebee. Could the yellow, voice-sampling VW-turned Camaro carry a movie on his own?
Beyblade toys are the latest franchise that Paramount Pictures have got their hands on.
The Transformers franchise could take a different approach next time out, moving the metal massacre to the Transformers' home planet Cybertron.
These guys are taking control of the Transformers universe.
