Michael Bay is a simple guy. He likes lots of explosions, frequent cutting, and keeping the audience as close to the action as humanly possible. So when digital camera company RED approached the director about designing his own promotional rig, of course it would be handheld, and of course it would be named “Bayhem”. What’s the point in being one of the world’s leading experts in cinematic destruction if you can’t have a little fun with yourself every now and then?
Transformers: The Last Knight, the latest in the Hasbro franchise, has been in production for a while, but Michael Bay and co. have mostly kept all plot details under wraps. One rumor made its way to the surface a few months ago, but it wasn't until today that it was pretty much confirmed. This could get a little spoiler-y, so proceed at your own risk.
Michael Bay’s next installment in the Transformers franchise doesn’t hit theaters until next June, but the director hasn’t been shy about sharing videos and high quality promo photos from the set of The Last Knight. Although he’s yet to reveal any specific plot details, Bay has kept fans up to date with the growing roster of characters, which now includes a Decepticon you might remember from the original Transformers cartoon series.
It’s a matter of public record that anyone who came of age during the ’90s has a soft spot for The Rock. Not only did the film convince an entire generation that Nicolas Cage was a viable action star — thereby ensuring the existence of movies like Con Air, Face / Off, and yes, even Snake Eyes — but it also cemented director Michael Bay’s reputation as one of the great action filmmakers of his generation, Transformers be damned.
In addition to recent images revealing upgrades for Bumblebee and Barricade, Michael Bay has unveiled another look at a robot character from Transformers: The Last Knight — but this isn’t one you’ve seen before. The latest photo reveals a brand new, original Autobot created specifically for the upcoming sequel, and he’s got a pretty adorable name.
Following last week’s reveal of Bumblebee’s slick new wheels, Michael Bay has shared another one of the vehicle upgrades from Transformers: The Last Knight. It looks like the Autobots won’t be the only ones receiving makeovers, as the latest photo depicts a familiar Decepticon sporting a new look.
It looks like Bumblebee is getting a bit of a makeover for the new Transformers sequel — not that it’s the first time. The friendly Autobot capable of stealthily upgrading his wheels has traded in his 2014 Camaro for a newer model, though he’s still sporting his signature colors, of course. Michael Bay revealed Bumblebee’s new look over the weekend, and if you’re a fan of cars — or of Transformers — then you’ll probably want to take a look.
Transformers: The Last Knight recently (as in, like, two days ago) began filming in Cuba, with a small crew shooting a few scenes before principal production moves to Detroit on June 6. With that in mind, a new viral video for the fifth installment in the franchise is hinting at the arrival of something big on May 31 — which could very well be the first official teaser.
What, you didn’t think Michael Bay would actually give his new Transformers sequel a silly title like Transformers 5, did you? Of course not. As with its predecessors, the next installment in the franchise has been given a lengthier, more regal name, and is now officially titled Transformers: The Last Knight. Arise, Sir Optimus Prime.
I like that this video explains who the Ninja Turtles are, for the benefit of those people who have been living in a cave (or maybe a sewer) since the late 1980s and have somehow avoided one of the six previous movies, five television shows, hundreds of toys, comics, and video games about these characters. “Oh Donatello is the purple one, ohhhhhh. For the last 30 years, I thought that was Raphael! My bad.”
