Michael Bay movies always manage to raise eyebrows. This is especially true when it comes to his Transformers Live Action Movies. Almost every one of them got into some sort of controversy. Some say it’s a curse but we’ll leave myths out of it at the moment. The latest “scandal” was using Blenheim Palace; the historic house of Winston Churchill as a Nazi stronghold. Although the director responded to criticism, War Veterans were left with anger and disappointment since Churchill opposed the Nazis in the first place. The scene may involve the Nazi looking for Cybertronian Tech very much like how it was portrayed on Captain America: The First Avenger and the first Hellboy movie. Churchill himself was shown involved with tech not too long on BBC’s Doctor Who episode Victory Of The Daleks, where some really cool Space Spitfires were shown.
Speaking of which, Transformers Fans received their first official featurette for Transformers: The Last Knight featuring Freya, the world’s loneliest dog. Staying true to his word, Director Michael Bay made her the pet of Sir Anthony Hopkin‘s character of the movie. On the featurette, fans caught sight of a moving World War I Tank (Mark V?). Could this be an old Cybertronian?
Meanwhile, actor Mark Wahlberg deiced to let fans in on some secrets. He mentioned that the movie is about “a man on the run” and the fans will love the new Mini-Dinobots. This comes as a confirmation of one of the items on JoBlo’s leak. So far the leak is more than 90% confirmed with only few items remaining to be confirmed.
Michael Bay also shared an official video of Hot Rod (Lamborghini Centenario LP770-4) driving past the Buckingham Palace in London. The director did not forget to thank the Royal Family for allowing him to film at the location.
Finally we have Lorenzo di Bonaventura breaking the silence after a very long time. During an interview for his new movie Deep Water Horizon (also featuring Mark Wahlberg), the producer stated that it was very difficult to find a studio to do the first Transformers movie. It has been 10 years now and Paramount may be thanking their luck for choosing the project. Majority of Paramount movies in recent years were financial and critical flops with the exception being the Transformers Live Action Movies which continues to make money (lots of it) despite being critically panned. Good Luck, Transformers 5.
With it, we end another week. Fall is already here and the holiday season is nearby. We hope that all of you will have a great time and a relaxing Sunday. We thank our members for their valuable contribution for our front page. Keep ’em coming.
