Who is the best Transformer? Correct, it’s Bumblebee. The trusty little Camaro who communicates half in speech and half with the assistance of sound bites from his radio is getting his own spinoff, and Paramount is looking at a release date sometime in 2018. Michael Bay, who is now in the process of choosing which Transformers story to do next, recently revealed that Bumblebee is going to be a prequel.
If you’re a fan of internet-famous animals, then you’re probably quite familiar with the story of Freya, the British dog whose heartbreaking story made international headlines. Turns out that director Michael Bay is also a fan of the lonely canine, and in a surprising move that will undoubtedly melt the hearts of even his most critical naysayers, he gave Freya an acting job in the new Transformers movie — opposite none other than Sir Anthony Hopkins.
Want to feel old? The Decepticon Soundwave is a tablet now. We remember a simpler time, when the big blue brute was really into mixtapes. Now, he's really into first-party apps. Millenials ruin everything, even your nostalgia. Actually, scratch that; millenials don't ruin anything, especially not toys, and especially not toy giveaways.
To prove just how strong our love for Transformers still is after all these years, we're giving you the chance to walk away with one of Hasbro's 2016 San Diego Comic-Con exclusive figures. And yeah, it's a Soundwave Tablet figure.
Despite regular photo updates from Michael Bay, we still don’t know much about the plot for Transformers: The Last Knight. We do know that the next installment in the franchise features some new and returning faces — both human and bot — and…that’s about it. But the first official poster for the upcoming sequel may offer a clue — kind of. Sort of. Well, it involves dragons, apparently.
Since Michael Bay decided to make Transformers: Age of Extinction his last directorial outing with the franchise, it’s been unclear just where the series is heading. We’d heard talk of Mark Wahlberg returning to continue the storyline that began with last summer’s film, but little else since then. Taking a cue from Disney’s Star Wars plans (along with every other major studio’s “expanded universe” attempts), Paramount has hired Akiva Goldsman to create a “writers room” and brainstorm new sequel and spinoff ideas.
There’s not a lot the ‘Transformers’ movies and ‘The Big Lebowski’ have in common. Yet, buried within ‘Age of Extinction’ is a very Dude-like easter egg for those who are paying attention. Did you miss it? Don't worry, we've got that, and a lot more for you, in the latest installment of You Think You Know Movies. Roll out!
Lorenzo di Bonaventura gives us a peek at what 'Transformers 5' may look like, and addresses if we may see Unicron in the next film. Di Bonaventura is also the producer of the just-announced third 'G.I. Joe' movie and reveals just how close that movie came to not happening.
