And there will be much rejoicing through the streets, the plazas and the back alleys.
Here’s news which will no doubt brighten your day and put a spring in your step. Michael ‘boom goes the dynamite’ Bay has announced plans to keep the completely unnecessary Transformers lumbering on for another 10 years. Yes, that’s right for the next f****g decade Bay will inflict even more Transformers movies on our fizzogs.
Speaking at Cannes recently Hasbro Studios president Stephen J. Davis had this to say:
“Well, you’re gonna see a new Transformers movie coming from Hasbro and Paramount and Michael Bay and our other partners. In fact, we just finished, which some of you may have read, just an incredible experience. We decided that we wanted to plot out the next 10 years of the Transformers franchise and so we got together in a room over a three-month period of time. Nine of some of the most creative writers I have ever worked with, shepherded by Akiva Goldsman, who many of you may know won an Academy Award for A Beautiful Mind and written a bunch of really great movies, and they plotted out the next 10 years of Transformers. Similarly, we’re doing the same in television and in digital. So stay tuned,Transformers 5 is on its way, and 6 and 7 and 8.”
And why wouldn’t Hasbro & Co want to make more of these insipid movies, as the last two managed to rake in over a billion dollars each. Just let that sink in for a moment as we collectively raise our glasses and toast the bright, sunshiny future for those large CGI robots from outer space.
