Transformers Age of Extinction and director Michael Bay hit key milestones

Posted on 07-08-2014 at 04:07 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
MB-on-Dolly A double-whammy of news comes to us with regards to the performance of Transformers Age of Extinction. There is a lot of excited buzz over both the movie and director Michael Bay hitting some key milestones.

Transformers: Age of Extinction, it has been reported, has overtaken James Cameron's Avatar to become the biggest grossing movie in China, ever! This figure is slightly disputed - some sources claim the milestone was hit on Sunday, while the tally others are keeping suggests the movie came close but has not quite surpassed Avatar at that time. In either case, it is an incredible achievement for the fourth live-action big screen outing of the Transformers! Credit for this news item goes to Hollywood Reporter.

Transformers: Age of Extinction now the highest grossing movie ever in China

Transformers: Age of Extinction continues to perform strongly at the US box office and has earned an impressive $180,166,140 as of July 7th, 2014. Box Office Mojo also reports that international takings add up to $412,000,000, with more than half of that figure coming from China. As you might see from their chart, though, some figures have not yet been updated for the past weekend, and crucially some of the European opening weekends, such as the UK, are not yet represented. Of note is that Deadline reports Transformers: Age of Extinction has the third greatest opening in Korea, but that the movie there is performing slightly less strongly than Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

Last but by no means least, Transformers: Age of Extinction marks an important milestone in the career of its director Michael Bay. The film's gross over the weekend has seen Michael Bay overtake Robert Zemeckis to become the second highest grossing director of all time, right behind Transformers live action movie series executive producer Steven Speilberg. Check out the full announcement on Michael Bay's official website.

Congratulations from all of us here at TFW2005 to Michael Bay and the crew who made Transformers: Age of Extinction possible!

Lorenzo Di Bonaventura Replies To The Critics, Talks About The Plot Elements Of Transformers 4

Posted on 07-06-2014 at 12:47 PM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
Lorenzo-di-Bonaventura-Transformers-Age-Extinction Transformers: Age of Extinction producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura spoke to the press recently, regarding the negative critical reception for the movie and also to hint what we might get to see in the upcoming Transformers Live Action Movie Sequels.

"There's a combination of factors" said Mr. Bonaventura. "Number one, critics do not understand this kind of movie. They just donít understand, they donít get why people like this kind of movie. Theyíre evaluating a movie like this, that is meant for mass entertainment on a really epic scale, as though itís a 1970ís Martin Scorsese movie."

"I kind of figure enough critics donít see these movies with the audience, is my suspicion. Because if theyíre with the audience, they cant help but be affected by what theyíre hearing and reacting to."

The producer also talked about the plot elements from the 4th Michael Bay Transformers Movie, how they came to be and how they will affect the future movies. Considering the nature of the content, we are keeping them away from the front page due to the spoilers they contain.

You can read them at Collider, Inquisitr and IGN.

Age of Extinction Grimlock Dinosaur Mode Concept Design

Posted on 07-02-2014 at 01:53 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
10505557_820577764634206_581507927305111700_n Ken Christiansen has posted a series of concept designs of Transformers: Age of Extinction Grimlock on his Facebook page. These early concepts show off the "armored plates" look that can be seen on the final version of Grimlock, although they are more prominent on these early designs. Also prominent in these early designs is some serious firepower on Grimlock's back in the form of a set of double cannons, Revenge of the Fallen Ravage style! These cannons - which give Grimlock an uncanny resemblance to the Gojulas Giga Zoid - did not make the final cut.

Check out the particularly awesome concepts at the link above.

Ehren Kruger on writing Transformers - No live-action Unicron yet

Posted on 06-30-2014 at 02:16 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
MV5BMjEwNTg1MTA5Nl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwOTg2OTM4MTE_V1_SX640_SY720_ In a recent interview with Huffington post writer of Transformers: Age of Extinction, Ehren Kruger, talked about the creative process that goes into making a Transformers movie.

Over the course of the interview Kruger - who also wrote Transformers: Dark of the Moon and co-wrote Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - explains some of the decisions that were made in the creation of Age of Extinction, such as the decision to use an older human lead with Mark Wahlberg.

The key factor that a lot of online news outlets have homed in on, though, is the one thread that director Michael Bay has repeatedly said "no" to when it has been pitched by Ehren Kruger, which is the use of the planet-sized and planet-eating baddie Unicron. Unicron, while he's been talked about, has been put back into the toybox because he's just too big to do until they can find the right story - or a way to make him make sense. Given how other live-action projects have struggled with giant-sized planet-eaters - we're looking at you, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer - this might not be a bad call.

Click here to check out the full interview on Huffington Post, which gives a great insight into the creative process behind the Transformers movies and also a good view into the role Michael Bay plays in the whole thing.
