So this film is supposed to take place in space . . . and it has a smaller budget?
Just some parts of the movie will be in space.Not the whole film.
blah blah blah yeah yeah yeah...okay whatever. Can you at least make the transformers look good?? give them mouths, no sharp teeth, no more mindless decepticons that drool and let's see something unique. I'm tired of how these movies aren't original, the transformers aren't original looking it's like we've seen them before over and over again in Star Wars and other space movies aka, the "dreads"... they look downright awful nothing like a robotic transformer...
I'd love for the new movie to be a prequel, set solely in space, but i doubt that'll happen.
If Bay can get a good screenplay, I bet even he's capable of making a good movie.
I was feeling meh about this before, but now im totally indifferent. He already turned my favorite villians ever in weak pansies uncapable of fighting for themselves, so there's nothing left for him to screw up... Just more mindless generic action. Ive tired of Optimus Prime going on rage fueled rampages, and hate how Bay cant even be bothered to make the characters fighting style match their personality. At point its Transformers INO to me. Why couldn't they have given him the Gobots to screwup?
Yo, anyone seen/post this yet?
if they had Swindle in charge of funds, they wouldn't have such a low budget
I have a weird feeling that that's fake.
Setting it in space sounds interesting. A "Star Trek with TFs" sort of thing could be kind of cool, with the Autobots flying around in space looking for more Cybertronians.
There have been like 5 threads about it. Probably fake.
Space travel sounds fun
Yea, I found that out. Looked cool tho.
It was a financial success, but from a critical perspective it turned a lot of fans of the franchise off.
It seems to be a fairly standard Hollywood deal these days for actors to sign on for three films. That way if the films end up wildly popular the actors can't ask for more money with films 2 and 3.
With the three films done it might have been cheaper to get new actors rather than wrangle with agents about how their client needs more money from a profitable franchise.
Which I find rather ironic, because Pirates 4 is essentially exactly what people - who didn't as much care for Pirates 2 or 3 - wanted . Less "Will and Elizabeth romance"? Check. More Jack Sparrow? Check. Less "giant monsters" and more "traditional pirate-y things"? Check. Shorter runtime? Check.
And it's also funny because I, personally, have heard very few people with the mindset of it turning them off of the franchise. It's either indifference or positivity.
Looks like this time round,the battle maybe be at Cybertron.
I've been saying it's not a reboot all along, so this doesn't shock me
I'm glad it doesn't change the bot cast.
I love the films for what they are. The beauty of Transformers is there are so many canons to follow and enjoy.
Best of luck to Bay.
Has anybody thought about why they got a lower budget? With each movie they earn more money, so they are not exactly expected to start spending much less money on the movies... Could it be because Paramount doesn't believe that the evolution of the franchise would work, so they want to play it safe? Does anybody know if something similar happened to the other movies - they got a realtively low budget for a start, but in the end they got more expensive?
