Bumblebee sequel will feature “a little more Bayhem” says Transformers producer

While December’s Bumblebee movie didn’t reach the financial heights of past Transformers films, it certainly managed what no Michael Bay instalment before it had accomplished, fully embracing its source material to please both fans and critics alike.

Those fans with a dislike for Bay’s brand of Transformers received another boost in February when it was confirmed by Hasbro that Bumblebee will serve as a reboot of the movie franchise. However, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura has revealed (or perhaps that should be warned) that the plan is to inject “a little more Bayhem” into the Bumblebee sequel and future Transformers movies.

“I was just in Japan and one of the reporters said to me, ‘I love the movie, I love this, I love this, and I was very tired of Michael Bay,”’ the producer tells Collider. “I said, ‘Uh huh, I’ve heard this before.’ And he goes,

Transformers Producer Says Bumblebee Sequel Will Have "A Little More Bayhem"

We finally get a a great Transformers movie with Bumblebee thanks to director Travis Knight, and now the producers of the Transformers franchise want to digress and, in a way, go back to what Michael Bay was doing.

Over the weekend it was confirmed that Paramount Pictures was developing a sequel to The Last Knight for some reason, and that the Bumblebee sequel would include Optimus Prime in the story.

Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura has now revealed some of their plans for the Bumblebee sequel. He says that they are looking to add “a little more Bayhem”, which are words that I hoped to never hear again regarding a Transformers movie. While talking to Collider, he said:

"I know the next Transformer our attempt anyway, is to sort of do a fusion of Bumblebee and the Bay movies. A little more Bayhem. And a little bit more of the character

‘Bumblebee 2’ and Future ‘Transformers’ Movies Will Feature “A Little More Bayhem”, According to Their Producer

‘Bumblebee 2’ and Future ‘Transformers’ Movies Will Feature “A Little More Bayhem”, According to Their Producer
Last year’s Transformers prequel Bumblebee took a stripped-down approach to its story about an alien robot by eschewing excessive action in favor of an Amblin-style relationship between the eponymous Autobot and Hailee Steinfeld’s human character. But according to the film’s producer, they still haven’t quite landed on the right balance between character moments and action […]

‘Transformers’ Producer Says ‘Bumblebee’ & ‘Last Knight’ Sequels Are In Development And Will Have “A Little More Bayhem”

If you’re a fan of the classic animated “Transformers” series and ‘80s film, you probably aren’t a huge fan of the recent film series from director Michael Bay. And while that series started off as a massive hit, the fifth film, “Transformers: The Last Knight” was the lowest grossing entry to date, and signaled an end to this franchise. Then, last year, “Bumblebee” came along and re-invigorated the franchise for many classic fans (and new ones), leading to hope that those years of Michael Bay monstrosities were behind us.

Transformers: The Last Knight Sequel Is Still Being Planned

Transformers: The Last Knight Sequel Is Still Being Planned
Bigtime producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura is saying that a follow up to Transformers: The Last Knight is being developed right now. In the same breath he also forwards that a Bumblebee sequel is in the works.

Paramount, the home of Di Bonaventura Pictures, had intended for Transformers: The Last Knight to be the jumping off point for a whole universe of sequels, prequels and storylines for The Transformers to be featured starting with Transformers 6. That idea was canned, or put on the back burner after the Michael Bay made movie bombed with critics and underperformed at the box office for the studio. With The Last Knight not doing as well as expected, there was a ton of pressure on the other major release, Bumblebee to perform well.

&#8232&#8232Bumblebee, a Travis Knight helmed film, did indeed do well. It didn't pull in as much as any of the previous five installments of the Transformers series,

Comic Book Review – Transformers #1

Ricky Church reviews Transformers #1…

For the first time in nearly 15 years, Idw has begun a new continuity for its Transformers comic book franchise. Beginning in the pre-war days of Cybertron, Brian Ruckely sets out to examine the start of the conflict between Autobots and Decepticons with fresh eyes in both a literal and figurative sense. Not only does it mark a nice jumping on point for new readers who might know next to nothing about Transformers, much of the issue, as well as the series going forward, comes from the perspective of a new Autobot named Rubble who has recently been forged and is seeing much of Cybertron for the first time. Ruckley makes a pretty intriguing start to the new series that has familiar faces and new character relationships to interest both newcomers and longtime Transformers.

Ruckley has a pretty good grasp on the Transformers universe and its characters just in one issue.

Transformers Producer Confirms Sequel For The Last Knight and Bumblebee/Optimus Prime Buddy Film

Transformers Producer Confirms Sequel For The Last Knight and Bumblebee/Optimus Prime Buddy Film
We’ve got a new update on the Transformers film franchise. One of the last things we heard is that Paramount Pictures was developing another “big transformers" movie and that there was a possibility that Optimus Prime would show up in the Bumblebee sequel.

Well, producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura has confirmed that the “big Transformers” movie will be a sequel to The Last Knight, which was such a terrible film on so many levels. But, he also confirmed that Optimus Prime will appear in the Bumblebee sequel, and Bumblebee was an awesome movie!

While talking to the Japanese outlet Cinema, Di Bonaventura said:

“We are already working on two projects and both have scripts under development. One is the latest in the main family series following the events of Transformers: The Last Knight and the other is a sequel to Bumblebee. So, we are thinking of films where Optimus Prime

Transformers: The Last Knight And Bumblebee Are Both Getting Sequels

What the Transformers franchise has lacked in critical acclaim, it’s more than made up for at the box office. 2007’s Transformers was a monster hit, and was followed by sequels of variable quality but that all made a bunch of money. With the release of The Last Knight in 2017 though, it seemed that the brakes might be put on the series.

The film underperformed at the box office, with many concluding that now might be the right time to reboot and retool the franchise. Then Bumblebee came out late last year, and its success proved that there might still be some life in the old dog yet.

Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura recently spoke to Japanese outlet Cinema about where the Autobots and Decepticons are going next and certainly feels that there’s a lot more story to tell, explaining the following:

“We are already working on two projects and both have scripts under development.

Oscar Nominees Beale Street and Vice Lost Annapurna a Ton of Money

If Beale Street Could Talk and Vice were critical sensations for Annapurna. However, neither of them were able to make a profit and ended up losing a lot of money in the process. The studio released the aforementioned movies on Christmas day along with Karyn Kusama's Destroyer, which in hindsight, probably wasn't the best idea since the box office was already crowded with some larger name movies like Aquaman, Bumblebee, and Mary Poppins Returns from bigger studios.

It has been revealed by sources that If Beale Street Could Talk lost anywhere between $8 million and $10 million, despite taking top honors at the Indie Spirit Awards and the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for Regina King. The movie was a critical smash, but it had trouble at the box office, which was more than likely due to poor marketing. Whatever the case may be, Beale Street wasn't the only movie that Annapurna

A Portal to Hell Is Opened in Teaser Trailer for Doom: Annihilation

Well, that was fast! Earlier this morning we shared some first look photos from the upcoming new Doom film, Doom: Annihilation. Now Universal Pictures has released the first teaser trailer for you to watch, and it actually looks like it will be kinda fun.

This film didn’t get the epic big-budget treatment, but there are aspects of the trailer that I like, like that big-ass gun and crazy creatures. It’s also said to be an "intense action-packed" movie. This is only a 30-second teaser, but I’m looking forward to seeing more.

Doom: Annihilation follows a group of space marines as they respond to a distress call from a base on a Martian moon, only to discover it’s been overrun by demonic creatures who threaten to create Hell on Earth.

‘Penny Dreadful’ Moves to California, Set for $24.7 Million Tax Credit

  • Variety
Showtime’s “Penny Dreadful: City of Angels” has become the 16th television series to relocate to California and has been allocated $24.7 million in tax credits.

The California Film Commission made the announcement Monday that the drama-horror series will move production from Dublin to Los Angeles for its fourth season. “Penny Dreadful: City of Angels” will employ more than 350 cast members, 150 crew and 10,000 extras (including stand-ins) and spend an estimated $99 million on below-the-line wages and other qualified expenditures during the upcoming season.

“With its established track record and top of the line production value, a relocating series like ‘Penny Dreadful’ brings long-term jobs and significant in-state spending,” said California Film Commission executive director Amy Lemisch. “Global competition and increasing reliance on VFX make it possible for projects set almost anywhere to film wherever they get the best value. We’re delighted that California crews and service providers will benefit directly from this project,
