Now The Go-Bots – THE GO-BOTS – Are Getting a Movie?

- 01-27-15Cartoons, Film, TV Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

I know we say this all the time, but Hollywood’s lack of originality has seemed to have reached a new low. How, you may ask. By not just trying to get a new movie project going based on a toy, but by trying to get a new movie going based on a toy ripped off an other toy. You may remember the Go-Bots, and the epic battle between the sainted Guardians lead by the appropriately named Leader-1, and the evil Renegades whose boss, Cy-Kill was a robot that – yes – turned into a motorcycle. Then again, you may be too young to remember the 80s, the last time anyone mentioned the term “Go-Bot” without any sense of irony. But remember them or not, the Go-Bots may be soon back on the pop culture radar. (more…)

‘Transformers 5′: Mark Wahlberg Is Coming Back – No Word On Michael Bay’s Return…

Transformers-Age-of-Extinction-Mark-Wahlberg-Bumblebee

Coming off the back of a cumulative worldwide total of just over a billion dollars, fuelled by the predictable ‘ending-that-screams-out-sequel’ fare, we were all expecting the announcement of a sequel to the critically panned, Transformers: Age of Extinction. It came as no surprise Paramount fast-tracked the follow-up to the Box Office behemoth, adding in a tentative 2016 release date for good measure. The business model is sound: you keep lapping up the goods; we’ll keep producing the material –  in other words, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. However, a few questions still remain… and one of the big ‘uns is whether Michael Bay is returning to direct the follow-up. (more…)

Blah blah die Michael Bay something something hate the movies yadda yadda sucks. There, now that I’ve got that out of the way, let’s rewind back to around May of this year when we heard about a new Transformers cartoon in the works. At the time it was unnamed, or at least they were bouncing around a few names. Today the interwebs are alive with the sounds of robots transforming into stuff and trying to destroy each other, and lo, there was a name attached to the project. It’s called ‘Robots In Disguise,’ and you don’t get a more Transformers title than that. It’s sprinkled with a few new faces, and a familiar one gets a promotion. Steer your optics over to the next page for more info and a full video teaser of the series. (more…)

Michael Bay is almost universally hated, if you believe everything you read online (but choose to ignore the box office receipts).  His movies, such as those in the Transformers franchise, are always released against horrible reviews and there are many a fanboy who has credited Bay for destroying the memories of their childhood.  Thanks to a new quote from USA Today, these fanboys may have a reason to celebrate today.
