Bumblebee: The Movie
Steven DeKnight Unsurprisingly Says Good Things About Transformers: Bumblebee
ExVee - Monday, March 19, 2018


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!
You were part of the Transformers writers’ room. I’m so curious: What’s a Transformers writing room like?

It was a blast.

I imagine.

It was a room full of incredibly talented, interesting, really wonderful people. I’ve got to say, my time spent in there was just, more than anything, was just so much fun. Everyone was so much fun and interesting. And we actually wrote, I think it was, I want to say 12 different movies. Every one of us took a different idea and developed it into like a full 30-page outline, so there were like 12 movies. And also, in complete honesty, my absolute favorite movie of the bunch was the Bumblebee movie that they’re making right now.

I’ve heard good things about it.

The idea was fantastic.


Steven DeKnight is not to our knowledge involved with the actual production of Transformers: Bumblebee and is most likely only speaking in reference to the initial outline or another early form of treatment that he would have seen during the Writers Room event, after which point the Bumblebee movie could have gone through any number of revisions.

In this moment, it's worth remembering one of the best (and possibly most honest) remarks heard about a then-upcoming Transformers movie during an interview, when actor Titus Welliver infamously declared Age of Extinction was "not a kids movie". Welliver was 'encouraged' in short order to 'clarify' that statement as part of a direct release from Paramount. Welliver was probably more right the first time.

More Bumblebee: The Movie News
Press of Atlantic City is reporting that comedic actor, Martin Short. Is doing "voiceovers" for the upcoming Transformers theatrical release, "Bumblebee The Movie". In a promotion for Steve Martain and Short's new musical comedy tour that has already happened, back in December 2017. But somehow, this tiny bit of news is just coming to light - If it is for real. These guys are comedians, so we're waiting till the official announcement, to be sure.
Entertainment Weekly talked to John Cena recently, mainly about his interest in coming on board The Fast And The Furious franchise. However, as you do, the Transformers question came up, and John Cena certainly gave a statement about it. Cena is either very good at doing vague talk comments or isn't very good at it at all, and I really just can't tell. The only somewhat clear remark is about how the character he plays is of a type he hasn't done before, but that he felt confident about. You can find the quoted comment below and a link to the original article.
Coming in fresh off a post on a Baidu forum we have what might be our first look at the Movie Masterpiece for Bumblebee as he'll appear in Transformers: Bumblebee later this year. A VW Beetle is seen as an uncolored testshot among an assortment of other Movie Masterpiece molds which may represent knockoffs of the genuine MPM toys. Some folks who've examined the photo have noted panel lines on the VW being placed differently than the G1 Bumblebee Masterpiece, making it unlikely to be a misleading grouping of items. No robot photos as yet, but we might be expecting that soon. Keep reading to see the picture!
We probably shouldn't disclose this to you, but British company NDA-Toys has posted the first images of the Bumblebee: The Movie Tiny Turbo Changers! Continuing with the numbering of the series established with Transformers: The Last Knight, this set of figures is labeled as wave 3. Photos of the display, packaging, and alternate modes were on the site, so click through to see them mirrored here!
John Cena was recently interviewed about another movie he's starring in, but the interviewer didn't waste a chance to try to dig some Transformers info out of the actor, who's playing lead in Bumblebee opposite Hailee Steinfeld. Cena's references to conversing with a tennis ball on a stick basically guarantee he's got some screen time interacting with one robot or another, and apart from that, he mostly just talks about what a good job Travis Knight did making the movie look like a Transformers movie but also look completely different from a Transformers movie. yeah, we're mildly confused too. But you can check out some excerpts and a link to the original article below.
