Michael Bay Hard At Work On Transformers 5

Posted on 04-21-2015 at 11:40 PM by Shin Densetsu under Transformers Movie
image It was announced recently that Transformers 5 is planned for 2017. Many have been wondering who would be directing, as it was confirmed last year that Michael Bay would not be directing Transformers 5. However, things change and money talks.

Deadline has reported that Michael Bay is hard at work developing Transformers 5. NOTE: This could mean he is just producing the movie, not directing it; he did the same thing last year for the Ninja Turtles movie. So while it's easy to assume that Bay is directing Transformers 5(given the context of the article), it may be too early to know(it's not outright stated that he's the director). At CinemaCon, Paramount's Vice President Rob Moore let out what Bay was working on:

He also promised the theater owners that Michael Bay was hard at work developing a fifth Transformers movie since the first four have made an astounding $3.7 worldwide, music to the ears of this crowd which is ALL about box office. But first Bay is directing Thirteen Hours, a war movie set around a daring rescue mission in Benghazi that is already set for release on Martin Luther King weekend next January.

It was previously reported that Bay would direct 13 Hours instead of Transformers 5. Stay tuned to our Transformers News for further updates!

Ultimate Edition Jetwing Prime In-Hand Images

Posted on 04-19-2015 at 01:27 PM by Sentinel under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
image Genetic of TFND continues to provide us with early in-hand images of exciting new figures. Today we are treated to an in-depth collection of Ultimate Edition Jetwing Prime in all his glory.

This figure features additional paint apps, tinted windows, semi-articulated hands, a mini Allspark Cube, an entire armory of weapons including: knuckle-busters, Energon swords and hooks, Buster rifle, Striker cannon and more.

As a bit of a Leader Prime aficionado, I can say that this figure looks to hit all the sweet spots with a plethora of accessories and a top-of-the-line paint job (minus the missing pinstriping). If you don't have a Leader Prime in your collection, this looks to be the one to get.

Ultimate Jetwing Prime is scheduled to be released on April 24th.

Technology Behind The Colombian Transformers: Age Of Extinction Digital Signage Projection Explained

Posted on 04-18-2015 at 09:30 AM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
Colombian-Transformers-Age-Of-Extinction-Digital-Sign An interesting article has popped up on the Digital Signage Today. The article explains the technology behind the Colombian Transformers: Age Of Extinction Digital Signage Projection; which displayed Transformers related product promos at the Calima shopping mall in Bogotá during the run of the 4th movie.

"LPX worked with projection mapping specialists Big Video, who designed a matrix of six Christie Roadster S+20K (3DLP technology, 20,000 lumens, SXGA+ resolution) and two Christie Roadster S+10K-M (3DLP, 11,500 lumens, SXGA+) projectors. Two S+20Ks were used to cover each side of the façade with the main part divided vertically into two areas, each one covered by one S+20K and one S+10K-M.

The video screened on the façade lasted seven minutes and contained fragments of the movie and promotional contents from the sponsors (General Motors, Hasbro, Oreo, Paramount and the Calima shopping mall). The projection mapping display played four times each night over three days, drawing an average of 350 spectators per show."

Shia LaBeouf Recalls The Transformers Live Action Movies

Posted on 04-17-2015 at 11:30 AM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
shia_labeouf_tribeca_h_2015-Transformers Actor Shia LaBeouf who attended the Tribeca 2015 Film Festival yesterday, recalled the time he worked on the Transformers Live Action Movies. Reporters who attended the event stated that his statement was more of a criticism.

"Bumblebee never sounds real, it's just a f—ing name. The name alone you can never make real, no matter how much you put into it, because on the other side, you have a director who doesn't believe it either. So when you work with certain directors who give over and do something that's presentational and you both believe it, then there is no f—ing around, and you really are in this alternate universe."

With plans of a Transformers Cinematic Universe on the horizon, what do you think of this statement made? Fire away your thoughts, on the thread associated with this news post

Mr. Ryan is not only the Robot stand-in during the principal photography, but also the voice of several Cybertronians including Bumblebee, Jetfire and most recently Lockdown.

"Recently he has become a familiar name as the voice of Bumblebee – the best loved robot in the ‘Transformers’ franchise, and found himself travelling the world, signing toy replicas of the famous yellow car. To date he has worked on all four installments of the hugely successful movie franchise, either as character voices or as the onset voice of the Autobots during filming.

Michael Bay Join Forces With Alpha Animation

Posted on 04-02-2015 at 12:35 PM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
Michael-Bay-Transformers Director Michael Bay's 451 Media Group joined hands with China's Alpha Animation and Culture Corporation to develop and distribute Hollywood's big brands.

Alpha Animation is also the distributor of Hasbro products in countries such as China, Singapore and Malaysia. Other co-owners of 451 Media Group, John and Anthony Gentile played big roles in our childhood by creating brands such as Micronauts and Visionaries. During the past conference calls, Hasbro expressed their interest in creating a Live Action Movie for Micronauts and it seems as though that plan is being carried out.

With the news of Transformers Franchise expanding to a Cinematic Universe, we can speculate that this new development may play a very vital part in that as well.

"The strategic partnership would allow 451 to develop content like feature films, apps and physical toys based on original intellectual property and disseminate them in unison, said an individual familiar with the deal." says The Wrap.

"This a very well executed partnership within the emerging Chinese entertainment and toy industry, bringing together the strength of both companies in the areas of original IP development for global audiences, product design, animation development and mobile and online channel creation," said Solon So, President of Alpha Pictures.

Akiva Goldsman Hired For A Transformers Cinematic Universe

Posted on 03-27-2015 at 03:25 PM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
Akiva-Goldsman-Transformers-5 Paramount Pictures is launching a cinematic universe around its blockbuster Transformers property that will be overseen by Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman, Deadline reports. It is stated that the Transformers Franchise will follow a Cinematic Universe, very much like the current Marvel, DC and Star Wars franchises. The series is said to have Sequels as well as Spin-offs.

Mr. Goldsman has worked on famous scripts such as A Beautiful Mind, The Da Vinci Code and I Am Legend as well as the infamous Batman & Robin.

"Taking a page from Fox’s incubation of three Avatar sequels and what Disney is doing to revive Star Wars with a sequels and spinoffs, the studio is negotiating with Akiva Goldsman to work with franchise director Michael Bay, exec producer Steven Spielberg and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura to organize a “writer’s room” that will incubate ideas for a potential multi-part Transformers sequel, and come up with potential spinoff films based on the billion-dollar franchise culled from the Hasbro toy line." says Deadline. "The Transformers expansion signals that Paramount is serious about competing with its studio peers when it comes to broadening big franchise properties." says TheWrap.
