Transformers 5 The Last Knight
Paramont's Box Office Stakes High For Transformers Last Knight After Recent Fumbles
BaCon - Monday, May 29, 2017


After the flop of "Baywatch", all eyes will be on Paramount's box office sales when "Transformers The Last Knight" hits theaters Jun 21st. According to the article on TheStreet, Paramount is trailing way behind the other studios, namely Disney, this summer who have been pulling in impressive numbers compared to the shortfall on Baywatch's $25 Million first weekend, that missed expectations of $40 million, on the $125 Million film.

What's putting the heat on, is Transformers will be have to stand up to the already successful sequels "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2" with $788 Million and the gaining "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" with $270 Million hitting screens this summer. Many are betting "Wonder Woman" set to hit theaters June 1st, will add even more more heat for Bay's medieval mash up of knights and robots to bare.
Baywatch represents the third consecutive big-budget disappointment for Paramount, which released Ghost in the Shell in March and Monster Trucks in January. Ghost in the Shell, a manga adaptation starring Scarlett Johansson, has made about $170 million against its $110 million budget. While Paramount had high hopes for a potential new Monster Truck franchise, the film's release date was pushed back several times, and the worldwide gross of $64.5 million was barely half the $125 million budget.

Paramount execs will now have to cross their fingers until June 21, when the fifth live-action Transformers movie, Transformers: The Last Knight, is released. The franchise, based on the Hasbro (HAS) toy line, launched in 2007. The most recent installment, 2014's Transformers: Age of Extinction, which like the forthcoming one starred Mark Wahlberg and Stanley Tucci, grossed over $1 billion worldwide on a budget of about $200 million.

More Transformers 5 The Last Knight News
Paramount Home Media Distribution has officially announced that it will release on 4K Blu-ray 3D Blu-ray and Blu-ray director Michael Bay's blockbuster's Transformers: The Last Knight. The groundbreaking adventure will also be available as part of the Transformers' 5-Movie Blu-ray Collection. All four releases will be available for purchase on September 26.
Coming to us from Kevin Liu, we've got our first look in video at the Deluxe Cogman figure from The Last Knight. This video covers transformation from car to robot, which has a couple of unexpected turns along the way that make the process look interesting to do. And of course we get good overviews of both modes as well as a quick showing of some alternate head choices on Cogman's "transtector". The video is in Chinese, but it's a great look at the toy. You can find it embedded in the full post below!
From chuckdawg1999 on our forums, we have a look at Wave 3's brand new Deluxe Bumblebee. While Chuck highlights the relative smallness of the robot mode (and bad use of packaging space in the Premier Edition boxes) what really seems to stand out is the involved transformation from car to robot as demonstrated in this video. You can check it out yourself, click through now to watch the video embedded below!
Thanks to the Toy People blog, we've got a really nice quick photo shoot of Cogman from the Premier Edition lineup. By all indications, Cogman is likely to be the last new Deluxe in the lineup for The Last Knight, which honestly doesn't make good odds for helpful distribution. But there will be a TakaraTomy option for this figure which while more expensive, may be a more sure way to get this figure. And you can check out the mirrored photos from Toy People below to help you decide if the effort or potential extra cost to obtain Cogman will be worthwhile!
Actor Mark Wahlberg, who played the Mark Wahlberg character in Transformers: The Last Knight, has posted a video to his Facebook page to announce, finally, the home video release dates for the movie! Good news: you'll own Transformers 5 on Blu-Ray in about six more weeks, if you really want to. Keep reading for the video!
