First, there was the Marvel Cinematic Universe…then, Disney re-invigorated and extended Star Wars…and Warner Bros has been rallying around their Justice League plans. Now paramount wants in on the mega-franchise phenomenon. Could it be Star Trek? Not quite (but more on that in another story…), but it certainly could be more than meets they eye…
Word is that Paramount Pictures has tapped Akiva Goldsman to start planning with director Michael Bay and lay out the groundwork to transform their Transformers franchise, with an epic core and spin-off movies, similar to what Disney is doing for Star Wars.
Despite the almost universal criticism for the most recent installment, it was still one of the top grossing films of 2014, so its no wonder that Paramount is trying this…but hopefully they come up with better stories before the allspark loses power…
Transformers: Age of Extinction opens June 27, 2014.

Here is an updated video of the opening of Transformers: The Ride at Universal Studios Hollywood – with captions in case you didn’t know who some of the people were. 🙂
The latest movie-themed attraction, Transformers: The Ride, opened this week at Universal Studios Hollywood, and it certainly looks like a wild ride! To celebrate the opening, a full red carpet event was put on, including Optimus Prime and Bumblebee walking the carpet and posing for photo ops, and a whole ceremony with the two driving in and saving the All Spark. Check out the pictures and video (provided by Universal and our friends at Inside the Magic, who described the ride as “Spiderman x1000”).
This May an all new ride at Universal Studios Hollywood will open up: Transformers: The Ride 3D, a 3D attraction themed around the Transformers movie franchise and even director Michael Bay collaborated on the original version that opened in Universal Studios Singapore.
For those that watched the Super Bowl, and stayed watching during the commercials, caught an interesting ad, that looked an awful lot like a live broadcast…
