Bumblebee CINEFEX is considered a staple in film industry reading. It covers, specifically, visual effects in films. I myself have a pretty healthy collection. Anyway, I popped over to the site to check on information regarding the VFX- mainly to see if Laika had any involvement. Doesn't look like it. ILM is doing VFX again. Kinda surprises me because this film is so budget minded; yet I'm not surprised as it makes sense. PRODUCTION VFX SUPERVISOR: Jason Smith WRITER: Christina Hodson Ok- I did not know this. I think it's interesting that a female has written this segment of the saga. With a different writer and director this film might be the refresh we have wanted. IMDB only has 2 other credits to her name: 'Shut In' and 'Unforgettable'. I am surprised a person with so few credits was handed this. No information given on Production designer or Director of photography. But it does have a release date of June 8 of 2018. That I did not know. Right now I am feeling VERY optimistic about this.
