Paramount has cut the planned seventh Transformers installment from their 2019 release slate. Bumblebee is now the only Transformers film in the pipeline.
The Transformers: The Last Knight sequel was set for a June, 28 2019 release date. The Last Knight brought in the lowest of all the Transformers films in box office returns last summer with a total of $605 million worldwide and $130 million domestic under a budget of $217 million. This may be a sign of the franchise headed towards a reboot as the upcoming Bumblebee was supposed the be the start of a Transformers cinematic universe. However, it does seem like the Michael Bay Transformers films may be coming to an end.
Here is the synopsis for the Transformers spin-off, Bumblebee:
“On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld), on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow VW bug.”
Directed by Travis Knight, the film stars Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena, Jorge Lendeborg Jr. Jason Drucker, Abby Quinn, Rachel Crow, Ricardo Hoyos, and Gracie Dzienny.
Bumblebee will be released in theaters on December 21, 2018.

The 10 Movie Trailers With The Most Views In 24 Hours, Ranked
Not all trailers are created equal. Some give away too many plot points while some don’t reveal enough. Some only earn a couple thousand views in their lifetime, while others earn up to 197 million views in just 24 hours. At this point, trailers have become an art form in themselves as they sell the movie to audiences who have thousands of different entertainment projects competing for their attention. To win the public’s attention, studios often spend big money on marketing campaigns designed to draw as many eyes onto a franchise as possible.
Heroic Hollywood has gathered the ten trailers that generated the most views in their 24 hours and ranked them from worst to best. Just because a trailer is on the top ten doesn’t mean that it’s good (the same applies for the movies mentioned in this list), it just means it succeeded in capturing the attention of the world for a moment. In the dog-eat-dog world that is the entertainment industry, if you aren’t able to generate buzz around your product months before it’s even released, then you’re doing something wrong.
