The Transformers franchise needs a shakeup. And by most accounts, that’s what’s happening. We’ve covered the Writers Room mentality employed by Paramount to try and inject creativity into the stagnant series, which has in turn led to the announcement of the next three Transformers movies. But they might not be a standalone trilogy, as you’d automatically assume. We hear Transformers 6 might be very different. Following Transformers: Age of Extinction, the Transformers films appeared to be in limbo. The movie made a fortune (as these movies tend to do), but the story laid out in Extinction didn’t really hook anyone. We know that Michael Bay is coming back to direct Transformers 5, but the sixth movie in the franchise, according to Hasbro (via MovieWeb) is going to be a spinoff movie focused on Bumblebee. In a release issued during the annual Hasbro »
Having set up a writers room last year to plot out the future of the franchise, Paramount Pictures and Hasbro have today announced a new slate of three Transformers films, set for release in 2017, 2018 and 2019.
First up comes Transformers 5, which sees Michael Bay returning to direct from a script by Art Marcum & Matt Holloway (Iron Man) and Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down). It is set to hit cinemas on June 23rd 2017, which puts it head-to-head against Warner Bros. Wonder Woman movie.
Next up – and initially reported in error as Transformers 6 – is a Bumblebee spinoff, which will open against Godzilla 2 on June 8th 2018, followed by Transformers 6 on June 28th 2019.
“This summer we worked closely with a talented team of A-list screenwriters to map out the future of the Transformers cinematic universe, and as [Hasbro President] Brian Goldner announced earlier, things kick off in a major way in 2017 with the release of Transformers 5 in June, »

Last summer, Paramount and Hasbro put together a team of writers to come up with ideas for spinoffs and sequels for their lucrative Transformers franchise, starting with director Michael Bay's Transformers 5. Earlier today, we reported that Paramount and Hasbro confirmed the release dates for Transformers 5, 6 and 7, which will hit theaters in 2017, 2018 and 2019, respectively. Now we have a statement from Hasbro which confirms that the 2018 project is actually a Bumblebee spinoff. Take a look at the brief statement below, which was released during Hasbro's Toy Fair presentation this morning.
"At Hasbro's Analyst Presentation this morning during Toy Fair, Hasbro Chairman, President and CEO Brian Goldner announced new details about the next three films in the multi-billion dollar global franchise. In partnership with Paramount, the writers' room assembled by Hasbro's Allspark Pictures has created several exciting new Transformers stories and is beginning development on the next three theatrical films. »
Up until now, the general wait for a new Transformers movie has been about 2-3 years. Given the insane amounts of money they bring in, this may come as no surprise, but Paramount Pictures is immediately stepping up their Transformers game. They have issued a release date, not only for Transformers 5, but for 6 and 7 as well. Michael Bay and Mark Wahlberg will be back for Transformers 5, which is set... Read More »

The 2017 one is certainly set to be the Michael Bay-directed fifth sequel in the series with Mark Wahlberg returning, but there were no details on the other two other than them being labelled "Transformers 6" and "Transformers 7" at the time.
Speaking on a conference call today, Hasbro's Tom Warner has offered some clarification - seems the company is doing the "Star Wars" style approach with a spin-off feature sandwiched between the main sequels. That means it'll be "Transformers 6" rather than a seventh in 2019.
So what will the 2018 film be? It will Not be the animated Cybertron spin-off project as some have suggested, rather the character of Bumblebee is getting his own stand-alone spin-off film which will open June 8th 2018 opposite Gareth Edwards' "Godzilla" sequel.

In Hollywood’s continued efforts to mine every property ever for a movie franchise, kid’s toys (and the 30-minute commercials called cartoons that were created in the 1980’s to sell them) became another source of success following Michael Bay’s Transformers. Since then we’ve seen G.I. Joe see some reasonable success and Jem and the Holograms fail miserably. Now, My Little Pony, which has already seen an amazing level of success back on TV, is working it’s way to the big screen as well. And it seems they just added a major name to the voice cast: Emily Blunt. Emily Blunt joins Kristin Chenoweth, Tara Strong, and others to the cast of the planned animated film. While the movie is coming from much of the same team that created the TV series My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, »
The Transformers are going to be arriving annually, starting in 2017.
Well, we're getting three Transformers films in three years starting in 2017. And, we'd imagine, this is just the beginning.
Michael Bay has already confirmed that he's going to direct one of them - Transformers 5 - and then he plans to hand the series over to someone else. Paramount has an aggressive plan for a movie universe of Transformers features, and the announcement of three release dates suggests that the series is going to move to an annual schedule.
Transformers 5 is now confirmed in the U.S. for June 23, 2017. Then, Transformers 6 will follow on June 8, 2018. Transformers 7, meanwhile, will follow on June 28, 2019. June, it seems, will be Transformers month for the next few years. We'd imagine the UK release dates will mirror their Us counterparts.
We don't know yet who's directing Transformers 6 and Transformers 7, but we'll keep you posted. »

First off, it confirms that Mark Walhberg will return for Transformers 5, and also reveals that the second movie announced today will be an origin story "which will tell the never before heard story of Bumblebee".
Interesting. The original report follows.]
If you're a fan of Transformers then today's news will either make you really happy, or really disappointed. It really depends on how you feel about the live action movies so far. Paramount Pictures has revealed three new Transformers movies will be hitting Every Year through 2019 (at the moment).
Transformers 5 will hit theaters on June 23, 2017
Transformers 6 on June 8, 2018
Transformers 7 on June 28, 2019
That's a lot of live-action Transformers coming your way in a short period of time. We've known for a while now that Paramount was keen to develop a Marvel styled shared universe around this property, and it seems this is coming as a result of that. While Michael Bay is already signed »

Good news for fans of Michael Bay and the Transformers franchise: you're getting at least three more films, and Paramount just announced the release dates! Transformers 5, which will probably get a wordier title at some point, will come out on June 23, 2017. If that date sounds familiar to you, it might be because Wonder Woman is supposed to open on the same day, until and unless Warner Bros. blinks and reschedules it. Transformers 5 will again be directed by Michael Bay and star Mark Wahlberg. Transformers 6 will come out about a year later, on June 8, 2018. That date had already been set aside for another Warner Bros. film, Godzilla 2. And Transformers 7 is set for release on June 28, 2019. No word yet on who will star or direct those films, but maybe by 2018, Shia Labeouf will be willing to star in big action movies again and big action movies will be willing to cast him. »

There will be at least three more movies in the money-printing "Transformers" series, with studio Paramount announcing on Friday release dates for the fifth, sixth, and seventh installments in the franchise.
Fans of the series should be pleased, since they're guaranteed a new film in the franchise every year for at least three years, beginning in 2017. "Transformers 5" is slated for release on June 23, 2017, followed by "Transformers 6" on June 8, 2018, and then "Transformers 7" on June 28, 2019.
Like Marvel and DC before them, it seems that Paramount is rolling out an ambitious "Transformers" schedule in an effort to establish itself as an anticipated annual presence at the summer box office. The series will face some big competition from the DC camp and Warner Bros. when "Transformers 5" opens against "Wonder Woman" next summer. It will then go head-to-head with "Godzilla 2" (another Warner Bros. property) when "Transformers 6" hits in 2018.

Age of Extinction may have brought another billion dollar boon to Paramount’s lucrative Transformers franchise, but perhaps the more intriguing development to emerge from the series over the past two years is news of the studio hatching a star-studded writer’s room, with everyone from Zak Penn and Christina Hodson to Lindsey Bee and Osacr-winning scribe Akiva Goldsman dabbling with Paramount’s juggernaut.
Fast forward to today and we’re now beginning to see the fruits of that labor, with The Hollywood Reporter bringing word that the studio has nailed down release dates for a new Transformers trilogy over the next three years.

Last October, Paramount confirmed that it was not only moving forward on Transformers 5, but that Transformers 6, Transformers 7 and Transformers 8 were happening as well. These will come amidst a number of live-action and animated spin-offs. Today, Paramount has confirmed release dates for the first three sequels. And it sounds like they'll have some stiff competition at the box office.
Transformers 5 is officially set to hit on June 23, 2017. It will be directed by Michael Bay and stars Mark Wahlberg. The film will pick up where 2014'sTransformers: Age of Extinction left off, with Optimus Prime heading into space to find the The Quintessons, creators of the Transformers race. This is a bold move by Paramount, as they have just positioned this sequel right up against one of DC Comics and Warner Bros.' tentpole blockbusters Wonder Woman, which is one of the few superhero movies to be headlined by a female character. »

Much ado was made over Paramount Pictures putting together a writer's room of A-listers (including Robert Kirkman, Steven DeKnight, Zak Penn among others) to make up the future of the Transformers franchise.

Michael Bay returns to direct Transformers 5 from a script written by Art Marcum & Matt Holloway (Iron Man) and Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down). That film currently has a release date of June 23, 2017.

Bad Boys 3 is happening in a big way, and it promises to take the action over the top. While he hasn't been officially confirmed to direct yet by Sony Pictures, action maestro Joe Carnahan is already in the previsualization stage for the movie, and is now teasing a freeway chase involving a motorcycle on his official Twitter page. This may be all the confirmation we need that the man behind such action favorites as Smokin' Aces, The Grey and the big screen A-Team adaptation is joining forces with returning stars Martin Lawrence and Will Smith. Though, he won't reveal the identity of the man on the motorcycle, only saying this.
