Lobo

It was only a matter of time before Michael Bay even considered jumping aboard another blockbuster film. It’s practically his bread and butter. But after directing five Transformers films and a few gritty ones in between, it looks like Bay is looking to direct a superhero film. Well, at least one that fits his sense of direction. According to new reports, Bay is in talks to direct an adaptation of Lobo, about a grungy space bounty hunter who has crossed paths with some of DC’s most notable intergalactic heroes and villains. More on the story below.

Transformers: The Last Knight feat Bumblebee

Transformers: The Last Knight
Director: Michael Bay
Screenwriters: Matt Holloway, Ken Nolan, Art Marcum
Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Anthony Hopkins, Josh Duhamel, Laura Haddock, Isabela Moner, Jerrod Carmichael, Jim Carter, John Goodman, Ken Watanabe, Omar Sy, Peter Cullen
Distributor: Paramount Pictures
Rated PG| 149 Minutes
Release Date: June 21, 2017

Transformers: The Last Knight continues the franchise’s long line of large-scale visuals, epic explosions, poorly written scripts, and lack of care for its own continuity. Even after four of these films, the new Transformers installment fails to learn from any of the previous lessons, and instead, chooses to double down (or should I say quadruples down) on them. So let’s not stand on ceremony and just say what we already know: Transformers: The Last Knight is just another two and half hours’ worth of explosion porn fest with a nonsensical script that has plenty of sexual overtones and characters that play to their racial stereotypes. Oh, and let’s not forget all those explosions and shouting matches. Check out my full review below.

Transformers: The Last Knight

By now we should all know that the Transformers films are not subtle and clearly lacking in narrative. But that’s okay. Since 2007 these films have been blowing up cities and the box office. But now it all comes to an end for director Michael Bay (or does it?).

Transformers: The Last Knight will be his final film (is it really?), and he intends to go out with a Bayhem bang. Though the Transformers film franchise has had a history of just being big robots and big explosions, The Last Knight may be the first to actually expand on the long history of the alien robot species’ relationship with humans. Check out the newest trailer for the film below.

No matter what you think of the Transformers film franchise, Paramount will continue to release new films as long as they are a box office success. They’ve even gone as far as expanding the world by planning for 14 films featuring multiple spinoffs and sequels. And it’s going to be important to know what will happen to the future of this franchise now that Michael Bay has declared that Transformers: The Last Knight will be his last time directing in that franchise.

Trailers have shown us that the Autobots and Decepticons have been on earth for much longer than we originally thought. In fact, they were on this earth as far back as medieval times and even had a role in World War II. How much of an impact they had is still unclear, but a new set of released images give us some sense of their “historical” importance. Check them out below.

Transformers: The Last Knight

Paramount Pictures has released the third trailer for Michael Bay‘s Transformers: The Last Knight starring Mark Wahlberg, Laura Haddock, and Anthony Hopkins.

Sure these films are mocked and ridiculed, but honestly, they never not live up to the epic spectacle that is a Transformers film. They’re full of explosions, sweeping shots, and have a grand scale to them. So even though this may be Bay’s final film in the franchise, the director will make sure that it will be on his terms. And he’s doing it the only way he knows how. Check out the trailer below.

According to longtime Transformers director Michael Bay, there’s 14 more movies in the franchise on the way including the spinoffs, and he’s interested in making one of those spinoffs. Now, before we shake our heads in (not so surprised) disbelief, let’s just get one thing out of the way first. Transformers: The Last Knight is supposed to be Bay’s last film in the franchise. At least that’s what he’s said. Remember, he previously told the press that for Transformers: Dark of the Moon. So it doesn’t come as a shock when he also says he’d like to do one of the spinoffs.

Secondly, 14 more Transformers films was not unexpected. At least not when Bay, Akvia Goldsman, and Steven Spielberg gathered a group of writers to pitch ideas to expand the franchise into a shared universe. More on the story below.

Paramount has released the newest trailer for Michael Bay‘s Transformers: The Last Knight. The film is the fifth installment of the franchise. It is also the fifth and final Transformers film to be directed by Bay, who has been with the franchise since 2007.

Not to anyone’s surprise, but there is hardly anything resembling a story in this trailer, and there probably won’t be one in the film. There will, however, be plenty of Bayhem, with a few characters returning to the series plus one more new one that isn’t afraid of these mechanical creatures, no matter the size difference. Check out the trailer below.

Now one of those spinoffs has found a director. According to new reports Laika head and Kubo and the Two Strings director Travis Knight has been tapped to helm the spinoff Bumblebee. More on the story below.
