I have to be honest I have no idea why we need a Transformers 4 or how this is even a concept worth doing. I enjoyed the first and second Tranformers movies and the third one was a relatively polished conclusion but just because the films made $2.5billion doesnt mean we need a remake / retelling / alternate angle on the same story. Do we?
Unlike some I am not a Michael Bay hater I actually happen to love his movies for the action the cheese and the over the top CGI special effects. Michael Bay knows how to blow stuff up and the Transformers was the perfect vehicle for it. Mark Wahlberg will star in the upcoming Transformers 4 movie and it appears to have been a direct result of their work together on Michael Bay’s new movie Pain and Gain which will hit theaters next April.
The film will hit theaters June 27th, 2014.
Bay will direct the next installment in the “TRANSFORMERS” series, which begins shooting next spring. From Paramount Pictures, a division of Viacom, Inc., in association with Hasbro, the film will be produced by Don Murphy & Tom DeSanto, Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Ian Bryce, and executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Bay, Brian Goldner and Mark Vahradian.
Bay’s first “TRANSFORMERS” film was a box office sensation in 2007, opening at #1 and earning more than $700 million worldwide. His second installment “TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN” in 2009 grossed more than $830 million worldwide. In 2011, “TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON” was an even bigger hit worldwide, grossing more than a billion dollars to become the 5th highest grossing film of all time. To date, the franchise has earned more than $2.6 billion worldwide.
