Well in as far as we’ve not been told otherwise.
Financially it is insanity. They haven't director haven't screenwriter (are they going to use writer's room script again? Are they idiots?), they haven't main actor obviously. Paramount hasn't money for this risk after TLK problems. Chinese box office will cease, because of restrictions. They need to release several smaller scale spin-offs. Or just get pause. The continuing now would be total disaster and shame. I don't want to see my blooming glorified TFs, ending in dirt and shame.
That's what Bumblebee is for - proof of concept of the smaller films being at all viable. Though I think even regardless, TF6 is going to kill this franchise at long last because The Last Failure was just a colossal box office bomb (it didn't even make as much money as the first film over a decade ago!) based on expectations and especially the domestic revenue numbers and thinking anybody wants more of that garbage is why Hasbro's current management needs to be replaced with new people who are willing to take the brand in a new direction instead of trying to make the tired old goose keep laying golden eggs.
I think this is great. They likely already have a story, I am almost positive they do. The writers room already came up with the plans for this unicron story. I want them to finish what they set up with unicron! There’s still time of a director is announced within a month.
I actually thought the last knight had a great story, editing and other choices were what I didn’t enjoy about it. But mostly editing.
It's cute people that some people still think Paramount knows what the hell it's doing.
They can at least try to right the ship
They would have a better shot at raising the Titanic.
It sounds mostly like speculation to me in the news post. I won't be surprised if TF6 is at least delayed until a later date in 2019 (I'm thinking November; it would be stupid to try and go up against Star Wars Episode IX). At the track record they're going, the movies will die eventually. The best thing I think they should do is not worry about giving a dead cow a jumpstart on the last movie, just rehire Michael Bay for the last one, finish it out, and reboot in a couple of years. Maybe make a spinoff or two if BB works out. Granted, Paramount has no clue what they're doing, and I'm guessing they're going to die out in a decade or two. So, the chances of this nice little future happening are next to none.
Impossible to say right now.
Episode IX doesn't come out until December. It will be fine to release in the summer.
Yeah... because people always remember how the 6th time's a charm.
You say that like the other movies have been catastrophic failures. They have not.
No, I say that like they're beyond terrible movies that happened to have made lots of money, but also peaked at #2 and have consistently gone downhill financially AND critically with each new one, finally bottoming out with TLK. Which they have.
No they haven't. Age of Extinction was the highest grossing movie of 2014.
This franchise has only known Michael Bay. The Bumblebee movie could in fact be so different it appeases a large window of fans and critics. If that happens I could see a big name director defiantly regaining interest in this franchise. Look at X-men, first class brought life back into that franchise, and now it is hit or miss but has some pretty great spinoffs in Deadpool and Logan. That was a franchise I about called dead after Wolverine origins and last stand.
Yeah 6formers could absolutely totally suck, but there’s enough change on the horizon it may not.
Please do Unicron right!!
Hilarious as this is, I do think they can pull this off.
We are talking about one of the biggest franchises out there. Other franchises have been reinvigorated there’s no reason this can’t.
The Last Knight did its best to sink it though sadly. It did create some ice berg sized holes in the franchise ship.
made a lot of money
A bit strange, isn't it?
Nah, in the case of these movies, I'd say it's fact.
Moot. In franchise terms, DOTM made less than ROTF. And AOE made less than DOTM *and* the first movie. And TLJ made less AOE. So that is in fact considered a downhill slide.
Only when convenient to the fanboys. But when you guys get a GOOD review, you're sure the first to post it everywhere.
Ah, you're one of those that equates financial success to quality. You still spinning Milli Vanilli, MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice on top volume while watching the Twilight saga? Because they were also HUGE financial successes too... so they must be "good".
