The Transformers franchise has been one of the most unique in Hollywood. Beginning in 2007, the franchise has grown and grown. The last two films in the series have both grossed over $1 billion worldwide. For all the franchise’s flaws, you cannot deny the sheer scope and reign the Transformers have over cinemagoers. The next film – The Last Knight – will feature the return of many familiar faces, including: Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson and John Turturro. Director Michael Bay will also helm the upcoming film, and – despite saying this numerous times before – this movie will be his last.*
The Last Knight will feature a wide-range of new Transformers characters including Hot Rod and the rumoured Unicron. Fan-favourites such as Bumblebee, Optimus Prime and Megatron are all-set to return in the new film!

What do you guys think? Are you excited for the next adventure in the Transformers franchise? Bay recently revealed that the series has “fourteen” films in various stages of development; if you do not like this franchise now, it is not going away anytime soon.
The Last Knight is set to hit theatres everywhere on June 23rd, 2017.
* Michael Bay has no interest on ever leaving this franchise.
Saturday Morning Cartoons That Could Make Successful Movies
If the Smurfs or Transformers movies have taught us anything, old Saturday morning cartoons are the new grade-A meat for the movie studios. Cartoons can be turned into animated movies, just look at the success of the Spongebob Squarepants movies, but they can also make successful live-action adaptations. Well, with Power Rangers coming out soon, an idea so silly it might as well have been a Saturday morning cartoon it’s time for studio execs to take a look at some of these hidden classics. There’s clearly a lot of money to be made adapting beloved children franchises.
I want to point out a key word to all of you guys in case you get mad at my list. I don’t necessarily know if all of these cartoons could make good movies, but I’m pretty sure they could turn a profit and be considered successful. Some of these can be enjoyable and they’re ones you might not necessarily expect. If I forgot about your favorite Saturday morning cartoon, head to the comment section and let me know!
