Could Transformers work as a live-action tv movie ?
The only way I could see Transformers working as a TV movie/or show would be to focus on smaller-size Transformers, and use practical props/puppets, like they did with Sqweeks. (Which I'd actually love to see...let's bring back that practical filmmaking).
But if we're talking about a more traditional Transformers movie with Prime and Bumblebee and all, I don't think it's quite feasible at the moment. Transformers media isn't a guaranteed hit anymore. It would need to be up there with Marvel and Star Wars in terms of public relevancy. Otherwise it would be given a lower budget, and the effects would really suffer.
I think it depends. It could serve as a start off for a TV series.
If it works as a regular movie, then yeah.
Something in the lines of Gobots ?
OP84 is that you?
I do not think a live-action movie for TV would be very expensive at the same time they should make animated movies directly for TV or even for Netflix.
If you’re willing to watch a Transformer series with only 5% Transformer screen time, then yeah.
Who the hell watches TV anymore? It would be a streaming series or a direct to Netflix movie.
The CGI would look awful, I can tell you that.
Maybe in another 10-20 years, good looking TV CGI Transformers would be affordable enough to keep on screen as main characters without having them only show up for like 10 minutes.
They could just stay in vehicle mode all the time...
Well, now, who could this be? As though I have to guess...
