Transformers Rise of the Beasts Paramount

The latest installment in the Transformers franchise, titled Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts, has experienced a decline in its Rotten Tomatoes score since its promising debut. Currently, Rise Of The Beasts holds a disappointing 55% rating on the popular review aggregation website, down from its initial score of 70%.

The highest-rated Transformers film on Rotten Tomatoes is still Michael Bay’s 2007 original, with a modest score of 57%. “Thanks to some genuine human drama between the set pieces and palpable affection for the title characters,” reads the review aggregator’s Critics Consensus, “Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is one of the franchise’s more enjoyable outings.”

What to expect from Rise of the Beasts

The next Transformers movie, which is inspired by the Beast Wars storyline, promises to bring the iconic robots back in an action-packed and explosive way. The first trailer for Rise of the Beasts made its debut this past December, but Paramount is ramping up the marketing campaign of the movie ahead of its release this Summer.

Rise of the Beasts is being planned as the first chapter in a new trilogy of Transformers films from Paramount Pictures. Steven Caple Jr. is directing the movie from a screenplay written by Joby Harold, Darnell Metayer, Josh Peters, Erich Hoeber and Jon Hoeber.

Set during 1994, Rise of the Beasts follows two archeologists as they come into contact with three factions of Transformers — the Maximals, the Predacons and the Terrorcons. Anthony Ramos, Dominique Fishback, Luna Lauren Vélez and Tobe Nwigwe spearhead the human cast while Peter Cullen, Ron Perlman, Michelle Yeoh, Pete Davidson, Peter Dinklage, Liza Koshy, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, Cristo Fernández, Tobe Nwigwe and David Sobolov voice various members of the Transformers.

Rise of the Beasts is the seventh installment in the live-action Transformers series, which kicked off in 2007. The first six movies have grossed a total of $4.8 billion at the worldwide box office.

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is currently scheduled to hit theaters on June 9, 2023. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding the future of the Transformers franchise and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
