So without doing one of io9’s big breakdowns, let’s just break this down all simple-like. We’ve got:
- Grimlock hanging around with Mark Wahlberg in a city dump
- Grimlock vomiting, continuing the franchise’s theme of Michael Bay’s love of robots having bodily fluids
- A bunch of weird robots that are 100 percent not Transformers apparently determined to murder children
- Another robot which may be a Transformer but looks very humanoid and is freaking me out
- A robot endangering its passenger by forcibly ejecting her onto the pavement, instead of just letting her exit the door, purely to be a dick
- A Transformer probably hanging out with Merlin
- Movie Optimus Prime murdering a Transformer, as is his wont
- Bumblebee hilariously endangering his passenger, Mark Wahlberg, just to do something cool and violent
- Some kind of a giant beanbag cannon breaking through the ceiling of an abandoned apartment building to shoot the comic relief
- A bunch of generic evil military dudes—not to be confused with the generic good military dudes—murdering Bumblebee by shooting all his limbs off
- Bumblebee breaking the wafer-thin Transformers movie continuity byAnd remember, somehow this still somehow involves a bunch of Transformers hanging out in medieval England and fighting with King Arthur, which is something that somehow all of humanity and all of the Transformers seem to have forgotten.all his pieces magically reattaching so he can murder a bunch of generic evil military dudes
Three More Transformers Movies Will Be an Ever-Present Threat in 2017, 2018, and 2019
Hasbro is hoping it’s a possibility: The company just announced that Transformers 5, 6, and 7 will drop in consecutive years.
In a short press release this morning, the toy giant confirmed that there’ll be three new entries in the Transformers franchise—Transformers 5, which director Michael Bay will return to shoot/explode violently through a camera lens in 2017, a Bumblebee-focused movie in 2018, and a more “general” Transformers movie for 2019. Each movie is expected to land in the summer of each year.
