Transformers Bumblebee

One of the biggest criticisms of the Transformers film franchise is that it looked nothing like the Transformers fans knew and loved. However, Bumblebee, the first Transformers film spinoff, represents something new and exciting. The teaser trailer gave us a brief look at the fan favorite Autobot’s first mission on Earth, as a VW Bug.

Now Paramount has released a brand new trailer for the film, and it’s filled with even more 80’s references and old school Transformers than you can roll out at. Check it out here below.

The upcoming Transformers spinoff Bumblebee promises to be an exciting adventure in the same vein as some of the great Amblin films of the 1980s. Starring Hailee Steinfeld, the film sees one of the bravest Autobots trying to outrun two Decepticon seekers, named Shatter and Dropkick.

Now, just ahead of its big San Diego Comic-Con debut, Paramount has dropped a new image from the film, one that introduces the two Decepticons. Check it out below.

Bumblebee Movie

Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for Bumblebee, a spinoff of the Transformers franchise.

The spinoff is an origin story for the Bumblebee character, set a couple of decades before the events of the first Transformers movie. It stars Hailee Steinfeld as a girl who discovers that the yellow Volkswagen Beetle she found at a junkyard in California is so much more than she first thought it was.

Transformers: The Last Knight

While the Transformers film franchise has brought in the bank for Paramount, it looks like it will be heading for a stall. The largely forgettable franchise has gone on for five films – all of which were directed by Michael Bay. Its sixth would be a Bumblebee spinoff.

Now there is trouble for the Autobots and Decepticons. According to various reports, Transformers 7 has been pulled from Paramount’s schedule. More on the story below.

‘Transformers’ Movie Franchise Could Be Headed For A Reboot

Transformers: The Last Knight feat Bumblebee

Never underestimate how convoluted the entire Transformers Cinematic Universe is. With each new installment, the franchise finds a way to disregard all of its rules and canon. Nothing makes sense. The only consistent thing about it was the Bayhem — explosions, sexual exploitation, racism, and the usual nonsensical material that comes with a Michael Bay film. But now that the director is out, we can hopefully look forward to something new for Transformers.

Especially when Paramount brought in a group of writers to pen up to 12 possible Transformers films. It’s still unclear if that is the number the studio is targeting. But if it is, then a possible reboot could just be the thing to help the franchise achieve Marvel Studios-like success. And that reboot may be in the works. More on the story below.

Movie Review: Transformers: The Last Knight

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.

Hailee Steinfeld in Edge of Seventeen

As far as the future for the Transformers franchise goes, well Paramount has that planned out. While Michael Bay will no longer be directing future entries after Transformers: The Last Knight, he has confirmed that there’s at least 14 more films currently being developed. One of those films is a Bumblebee spinoff, which has which has signed Kubo and the Two String helmer Travis Knight to direct.

Now they may have found their lead star. Based on new reports, The Edge of Seventeen star Hailee Steinfeld is in talks for a role in the film. More on the story below.

‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ Trailer: Saving The Future By Unlocking A Decade’s Worth Of Bayhem

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.
