BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
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.
Michael Bayís Transformers film franchise is a crushing colossus that callously walks across box-office surfaces to the sound of trembling Earth as it smashes its competition to bits. Yet, the only real takeaway from the films is that they break the world to bits in each entry. Now, thanks to this hilarious supercut, we get to see an array of our favorite films suffer their wrath!
Furious 7 just overtook Transformers: Age of Extinction as the number one grossing movie in China.
Hasbro and Paramount Pictures are not ready to give up on Transformers. We already knew that Transformers 5 and more live-action sequels were in the works, but when are they coming?
Shia LaBeouf has once again taken aim at the Transformers franchise and Michael Bay.
It is being reported that Paramount Pictures has big plans for the future of its Transformers film franchise in the form of multi-part sequel films to the already-enduring series of movies. Yeah, thatís right, the cinematic world is not quite done with the frenetic, destructive, product-placing world in which Autobots and Decepticons turn our cities into their personal Thunderdome.
Apparently Paramount thinks Transformers 4 should win Best Picture this year. No, I'm not even kidding.
Michael Bay will definitely not be returning to the Transformers franchise for a fifth film after it was revealed that he will direct 13 Hours instead. Will Michael Bay finally deliver a nuanced, subtle movie rather that a bombastic blockbuster though?
We've seen Cinema Sins tear apart quite a few movies in their time, but never has there been a film that needed a full half hour, two part takedown. That is, until now.
Since trade embargoes have loosened between China and America, it's resulted in a flood of Hollywood product reaching their shores, when earlier it was only a select few movies that would arrive in China, following heavy government censure.
It's almost as if he's throwing shade at other franchises for their crossovers, subtly implying they've run out of stories. Pretty disingenuous considering we're dealing with properties based on toys: to say the four Transformers films actually have stories is like saying Mark Wahlberg would make a convincing Texan.
