Steven Caple Jr’s film could bring back the momentum at the box office that the franchise had lost in the recent instalments.
The Transformers return to theaters worldwide in less than a month with the release of Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, the first “live action” film in the saga in five years.
Steven Caple Jr. (Creed II) takes over from Travis Knight, who directed Bumblebee, in the director’s chair to continue such “reboots” of the saga to set it in the eighties and nineties.
These are the best tablets to watch movies and series
If you usually watch series while traveling or in different parts of the house, these tablets can be good companions for entertainment consumption.
The war between the Autobots and the Decepticons always gives us big doses of action on the big screen. Michael Bay has given it his all in all five of his films, capitalizing on his propensity for blowing things up, destroying urban environments, and leaving no stone unturned in any “Bayhem” scene he can get his hands on.
The franchise needs a boost at the box office. Although Bumblebee ended up being a success, its opening in movie theaters was one of the weakest in the saga, with 21 million in the United States and Canada, worse than Transformers: The Last Knight (44 million).
It’s shock time for Transformers
That trend may change with Transformers: Rise of the Beasts. Deadline estimates in its “domestic” forecasts for the film’s release that the United States and Canadian box office will be around $68–70 million in its opening weekend.
If these predictions from Deadline’s analysts hold true, it will be the first Transformers film in over a decade to post an upward resume in its release.
New contenders are about to join the war between the Autobots and the Decepticons. The Maximals, Predacons, and Terrorcons join the party in Transformers: Rise of the Beasts.
How do you think the new franchise film will do at the box office? Transformers: The Awakening of the Beast is coming to theaters on June 9, 2023.
