You may remember a time when Xzibit would put your Transformer into your Transformer. But imagine someone actually putting a Transformer into a 2014 Bugatti Veyron—or at least painting it like one—and asking almost $2 million for it.
Never let it be said that Michael Bay is not a man without a very well-defined directorial sensibility. Michael Bay is extremely good at being Michael Bay and the minute you start watching a Michael Bay movie, you know exactly what you’re in for. This is extremely true of Transformers: The Last Knight.
A couple months ago, hints were dropped that the Transformer known as Bumblebee would return to his original automotive form, a yellow Volkswagen Beetle, for the new standalone Bumblebee movie currently in production. Now, we have what appears to be photographic confirmation of this, and, even better, I have…
Did you see Michael Bay’s fifth movie in the disturbingly profitable Transformers franchise this weekend? Did you have a question about it, besides “Why is this movie about giant robots and explosions so boring?” Our patented Spoiler FAQ has all the answers you need and also probably several you didn’t.
Let’s be honest: the Transformers series of movies are pretty awful. Even if we accept that a movie about space-robots that turn into cars and trucks isn’t the sort of framework that’s going to beget Citizen Kane, they’ve still been idiotic. But at least one good thing is happening: in the upcoming standalone Bumblebee movie
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.…
