The promise of Transformers: The Last Knight has been that it’s going to shed light on the secret history of Transformers. Seeing as most of the other films in Michael Bay’s franchise haven’t exactly overflowed with a fidelity to continuity, that’s going to be interesting. Has everything we’ve seen been massively…
Yes. You read that right. A movie about Transformers in Ancient Rome. If they do not fight for the entertainment of the masses in the Coliseum, it will be a travesty.
At CinemaCon last week, Michael Bay was asked if he was actually going to be leaving the Transformers franchise this time. He not only said that he’d like to do one more, but that there were already 14 stories ready to go in that universe.
If you’re like me and have thoroughly enjoyed at least one of the soon-to-be five movies in the Transformers franchise, you probably know that all of the gritty explosion-ness and car flipping is mostly done for real, just minus the giant robots. But how do they convincingly get all those cars to flip?
Admit it, ever since you learned that Optimus Prime and the rest of the Autobots and Decepticons crashed on Earth, you’ve secretly always wondered what a real-life, full-sized Transformer would look like. Good news, a company in Turkey wants to sell you one.
Transformers: The Last Knight, set for release next summer, is currently filming near Detroit, so fansite Seibertron.com took the opportunity to grab a close-up video walkaround of some of the cars appearing in the video. They are all absurd. Every one of them. And yet, the kid in me kind of digs them.
Bumblebee, the Transformers Autobot based on a Chevy Camaro that started out as a toy and then became a savior of the Earth in a slew of horrible, mindless action films will be getting his/its own spin-off film, because Hollywood is dead and the Camaro is doing really well.
As if Christian Koenigsegg’s cars weren’t cool enough already, he’s now making robot cars way cooler than Michael Bay ever could.
Having your parents throw an awesome Transformers-themed party for your sixth birthday is one thing. But having your dad make a talking Optimus Prime cake that actually transforms? That’s a birthday you’re never, ever going to forget.
Half of me wants to believe that this amazing Lego version of Optimus Prime (the Michael Bay movie version) that can actually transform into a robot is legit. But the other half of me is having a hard time believing that Ralph Savelsberg didn’t just hire Industrial Light & Magic to help fake these photos with CG.
If a transforming robot is cooler than a regular robot, then what’s cooler than a transforming robot? Why, a bunch of transforming robots that combine together to form one giant robot! So how can we make that happen, and if so, what would happen?
“All I want to do/is see six robots turn into/a giant woman.” Hasbro’s Fan Built Combiner poll culminates in the creation of Victorion, the most together combiner team Transformers has ever seen.
While director Michael Bay might not be known in film circles for his nuance or profound cinematic leaps forward, one thing is undeniable: his films resonate. Transformers grossed $319 million, and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen grossed over $400 million and was second only to Avatar in box office gross for 2009.…
This video is fascinating because it let's us pretend to be a fly on the wall of a Porsche 911 engine assembly line. There's no annoying soundtrack, no voiceover explaining what's happening, we're just seeing humans and machines teaming up to create beautiful, powerful engines that purr the best cars.
Because they've just taken out an ad asking the Academy to consider the movie about giant robots blowin' shit up for Best Picture, as well as pretty much every other available Oscar. Transformers 4 was the least egregiously awful movie in the franchise, but does that achievement make it Oscar-worthy? I say thee nay.
Local Motors marketing guy Buddy Crisp pulled off a great get convincing Michael Bay and friends to put the Rally Fighter off-roader in Transformers 4: My Big Fat Robot Wedding Strikes Back. Here's what Crisp had to say about his car starring in the (second?) most successful film franchise based on a toy.
