Bumblebee: The Movie
Bumblebee Movie Gets 22 Million to Make Transformers Film in California
BaCon - Tuesday, July 11, 2017

According to the LA Times, the next foray into the Transformers Movie Universe will get a record $22 Million tax credit for shooting the movie entirely in California, USA. The money comes from what is being called a "state program aimed at curbing so-called runaway production."

Is it just me, or does it seem odd WE the people should foot the bill for productions that all the profit goes back to the studio? California is not alone, Michigan and other states have provided these incentive before. The idea being, these productions will bring jobs and income to the state.
The production, described only in state records as the “Untitled Paramount Project,” has received preliminary approval to receive a state tax credit of $22 million, according to the California Film Commission.

The amount exceeds the roughly $18 million in credits approved in August 2016 for Walt Disney Studio’s “A Wrinkle in Time,” which also shot in California.

Filmmakers can recoup as much as 25% of their spending (up to the first $100 million) on crew salaries and other qualified costs, such as building sets. Studios can then use such credits to offset state tax liabilities they have in California.

More Bumblebee: The Movie News
While being interviewed regarding Pacific Rim Uprising, Steven DeKnight was briefly asked by Uproxx about his time working with the Transformers Movie Writers Room. There's really no new revelations in this, as he mentions working on what he recalled as a dozen movie pitches, but he did make sure to mention how the upcoming Transformers: Bumblebee was his favorite of what came out of the project. Hopefully that's a genuinely positive sign for the quality of this year's movie, though it's also entirely possible that DeKnight wouldn't even recognize the movie if he saw it today. You can see more on this plus a link to the interview below!
Amazon Canada is providing us with our first details about the third assortment of Tiny Turbo Changers figures, tied in to the upcoming Transformers: Bumblebee movie line.

Thanks to Brazilian hobby blog T-Hunted, we have an image showing off upcoming Jada die-cast car products for 2018. Among a selection of Marvel and other licensed property vehicles, a few Transformers entries can be seen, including G1-inspired vehicles for Bumblebee and Optimus Prime, along with Optimus Prime as he appeared in the earlier part of the live action movie series, and one more silhouetted Volkswagen that's almost certain to be Bumblebee as he will appear in his self-titled movie later this year.
