I don’t know if I’ve seen a Transformers film since the second one, but apparently they are still making a ton of money. The fifth entry into the Transformers franchise, Transformers: The Last Knight, is only a couple months away, so it’s fitting that we would be getting one last trailer around this time. It seems the marketers agree with this because on Paramount’s official Youtube channel, a short teaser clip was uploaded that announced a new full trailer will debut Wednesday. Here it is below:
As someone with no knowledge of Transformers lore, I actually think this film sounds more interesting than the previous two or three. If nothing more, it might be cool to see the Autobots and Decepticons fight with swords! Be sure to check back at Heroic Hollywood for the full trailer reveal on Wednesday.
“The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock).
There comes a moment in everyone’s life when we are called upon to make a difference. In Transformers: The Last Knight, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours.”
Transformers: The Last Knight hits theaters June 23, 2017.
10 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!
