Transformers 6 Pulled from Paramount's 2019 Release Schedule

Transformers 6 Pulled from Paramount's 2019 Release Schedule
It appears as though the future of the Transformers franchise is in doubt. Paramount Pictures has officially removed Transformers 6 from its release calendar. The sequel was scheduled for release on June 28, 2019. Paramount didn't simply move the movie to another date as the studio has pulled it from its calendar entirely. That, coupled with comments made earlier this year, suggest that we very well may be heading toward a Transformers reboot.

A new report states that Paramount put Transformers 6, which will be the seventh movie in the franchise overall following this year's Bumblebee, which arrives in theaters on December 21, put the movie on the release calendar years ago as a placeholder. Since Michael Bay has moved on from the franchise and since the first footage from Bumblebee that debuted at Cinemacon was well-received, it's being reported that Paramount will reboot the franchise in the same vein of the upcoming spin-off.

‘Transformers 7’ Pulled From Paramount Schedule

Paramount has pulled the seventh “Transformers” movie from its 2019 schedule.

The film was set for release on June 28, 2019. The studio will still open the spinoff “Bumblebee” on Dec. 21. Michael Bay directed the first five “Transformers” movies and Travis Knight helmed “Bumblebee.”

The studio will instead release Tiffany Haddish’s comedy “Limited Partners” on that date. Paramount set up the project last fall with writers Sam Pitman and Adam Cole-Kelly. Peter Principato, Itay Reiss, and Joel Zadak are producing through Artists First, the re-named Principato Young.

Haddish broke out in last year’s “Girls Trip” and will star in two comedies this fall: Universal’s “Night School” with Kevin Hart on Sept. 28 and Paramount’s untitled Tyler Perry comedy, opening Nov. 2. She’s also joining Hart in the voice cast of Universal’s “Secret Life of Pets 2,” out on June 7, 2019.

Paramount also announced on Wednesday that it’s dated the Elton John

‘Transformers’ Sequel Cut From Paramount’s 2019 Release Slate

‘Transformers’ Sequel Cut From Paramount’s 2019 Release Slate
Paramount announced Wednesday that it has removed next year’s planned “Transformers” installment from its release slate.

The sequel to “Transformers: The Last Knight” had been scheduled for release on June 28, 2019. The sole “Transformers” film now left on Paramount’s slate is the spinoff “Bumblebee,” which will hit theaters this Christmas.

Last year, “The Last Knight” scored the lowest box office returns of any “Transformers” installment with $605 million worldwide against a $217 million production budget, including a franchise-low $130 million domestic cume. The birth and rise of Michael Bay’s series based on the classic Hasbro toy line was one of the signature achievements of Paramount’s late former CEO Brad Grey, who passed away last year.

'G.I. Joe' Spin-off to Focus on Snake Eyes; Here's Everything We Know

While this year will see the first Transformers spin-off, Bumblebee, hit theaters, another Hasbro-based movie series is set for its own offshoot. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount is working on a Snake Eyes movie focused on the popular "Real American Hero" character from the military G.I. Joe brand. Previously, the action figure and cartoon property inspired two feature films, 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and the 2013 sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Hasbro is still interested in creating its own cinematic universe, and this will presumably be a part of that wider franchise, which will also involve Transformers, Rom, M.A.S.K. and more. Here's everything we know about the spin-off movie so far: Who is Snake Eyes? One of the original...

Birds of Prey Is an R-Rated Girl Gang Movie Says Margot Robbie

Birds of Prey Is an R-Rated Girl Gang Movie Says Margot Robbie
The Harley Quinn spin-off movie is finally gaining some steam. Margot Robbie has been working on Birds of Prey ever since Suicide Squad dominated at the box office. Recently, the movie locked down a director in the form of Cathy Yan and now, Robbie has dished the first details on the upcoming DC movie.

Margot Robbie is currently promoting her upcoming thriller Terminal. During a recent interview, she was asked about Birds of Prey, which looks to be on the fast track at Warner Bros. and is likely to shoot before Suicide Squad 2. Robbie revealed that, when she pitched the movie, it was an R-rated, all-female action adventure. Here's what she had to say about it.

"I pitched the idea of an R-rated girl gang film including Harley, because I was like, 'Harley needs friends.' Harley loves interacting with people, so don't ever make her do a standalone film.

April Delivers Record Box Office Grosses, Topping $1 Billion for First Time Ever

April Delivers Record Box Office Grosses, Topping $1 Billion for First Time Ever
April joins February 2018 as another record month at the box office with calendar grosses topping $1 billion for the first time ever, improving on 2017's record grosses by nearly $210 million. The result was due, in large part, to the massive opening success of Avengers: Infinity War which made up 27.7% of the month's overall gross despite being in theaters for only four days in April. As a result, Disney dominated the month with $336.6 million from just five films as the studio continues its record pace, generating over $1.2 billion in box office revenue over the first four months of 2018. Led by $282.4 million from Avengers: Infinity War after just four days in release, Disney delivered $336.6 million in April, pushing the studio's yearly total to $1.2 billion in the first four months of the year. On April 27, Disney became the fastest studio to reach $1 billion domestically, doing so in just 117 days, besting their previous record set in 2016 by 11 days.

Pet Sematary Remake Lands John Lithgow

Pet Sematary Remake Lands John Lithgow
Just weeks after Jason Clarke signed on to play Louis Creed in Paramount's Pet Sematary, the cast is starting to fill out even more. John Lithgow has signed on to play Jud Crandall, the neighbor of Louis and his family in this upcoming remake. Production is scheduled to begin this summer, although there is no word on exactly when filming will begin, or exactly where production will take place. While there are still a number of major roles to be filled, the cast is coming together quite nicely.

Like the 1989 movie, this project will be adapted from the 1983 Stephen King novel of the same name, which celebrates its 35th Anniversary later this year. The story follows Louis Creed, his wife Rachel Creed and their kids Gage and Ellie, who move from Chicago to rural Ludlow, Maine, after Louis accepts a position as a doctor at the University of Maine.

‘Bumblebee’: John Cena and Director Travis Knight on the ‘Transformers’ Spinoff

One of the many films to world premiere footage at CinemaCon last week was director Travis Knight’s Transformers spinoff, Bumblebee. Unlike the Michael Bay Transformers movies which always took place chronologically, Bumblebee is a prequel that takes place in 1987. In addition, unlike the previous films which always had a male protagonist, Bumblebee stars Hailee Steinfeld as the lead human role and is said to be more in line with a coming-of-age/teen movie with Bumblebee featuring as one of the only major Transformers in the film. When we recently spoke to Steinfeld she told us: “It’…
