    I want the reboots to try a different formula.
    Like for example; What if the hero sided with the Decepticons instead? What if they aren’t as bad as the Autobots make them out to be?

    Ok after talking to someone who has seen the screening of the Bumblebee movie......This has to be a reboot or this messes up the timeline WAY more than TLK

    No? Bumblebee is set in the 80's an it's a prequel,
    in the bay verse before TF1.

    Great. A reboot where BUMBLEBEE STILL CANNOT TALK.

    If they're trying to reboot it, it is far too similar to the previous movies, to the point where I don't understand why they are rebooting it at all if they aren't going to change the aesthetic. Maybe if the movie underperforms it will just be abandoned, like how Dracula Untold was to be part of the Dark Universe but was jettisoned when the movie bombed...

    It's a manufactured success. It's almost impossible for it to make less than double its budget, because the budget is so low that even if a very core fanbase goes to see it, it will make its money back and Lorenzo will celebrate success.

    As long as a penny can be made, he's not letting the franchise reboot without himself. So, we'll be getting spinoffs to spinoffs for years until there's not even a penny to be made anymore. And I don't think this is good news.

    And what exactly makes you think it will be a 'great story'? The fact that the scriptwriter has written almost nothing previously? Or the fact that at least three of the four producers of the film are Michael Bay and his cronies, with the fourth not even being famous enough to have a wikipedia page? And how can there be a 'great story' when Bumblebee is not even allowed to talk even though he is the only major Autobot in the film?

    I don't mean to be overly negative, but I don't see any rational basis for optimism here either. Yes, Travis Knight is ok... At doing stop motion films. Which this is not. He has no experience on live action movies. And even a good Director can't do much with a bad script and bad producers.

    Honestly, the only reason I don't think this movie is going to underperform isn't because the movie is going to be good, but because the bar is set so low that even 300m would be considered 'success'.

    Agreed. I honestly don't know why people think this movie is going to be different just because the director is nominally changing. With Bay, di Bonaventura, and DeSanto continuing to be the producers, nothing is going to change. Unless all three of them are kicked to the curb we are going to get the same trash as we have been getting for 11 years now.
