Trailer for this is up now.

Fortunately, what may likely be the last movie in the current Transformers franchise isn't being helmed by Michael Bay. Kubo and the Two Strings director Travis Knight (who was also lead animator on most, if not all of Laika's movies) is directing this time around, and in addition to being set in the '80's, various interview have suggested that they're going for a bit of an Amblin Entertainment kinda vibe. I've avoided every other Transformers movie, but this one looks fun and charming.

Damn, I always thought this was a joke.

Then I find out it's real.

Well at least the car model is the Bumblebee I grew up with... other than that, no thanks.

Ummmm... ok? I mean, it certainly looks better than any of the shit directed by Bay but I'm not sure we ever needed E.T. redone with Transformers who turn into a superhero in a prequel to a run of shitty movies with a nonsensical timeline.

Be fair ;  Starscream is also the right model and even transforms properly.

Fuck, that's the same reaction I just had right now after watching it.  Thankfully there's no realistic way I can see it in theaters at all right now though.   Ohhhhh, I see.

As a fan of the classics, that looks 100000% better than the summ total of every single previous Transformers movie combined.  Like, someone FINALLY pulled their heads out of their asses and made a movie that has more actual "transformers" to it than just the freaking name.

Indeed.  The friendship looks like it might be handled properly as well.

It might end up being the best LA TF we'll get.

Fuck Bay.

I'm still not entirely sure of the necessity of this movie, but yes, it looks a billion times better than anything Bay did. The combat at the end while the kid is running in the foreground is just great, especially in comparison to the Bay action scenes.

I know its going to be a minuscule part of the movie but the Cybertron stuff totally sold me. Shockwave? Soundwave and Ravage? fuck yes, please.

Also, Triangular Decepticon fliers which is a total call-back to the original cartoon.

I know.  I think that entire combat sequence had more clearly distinguishable robot on robot action than the entirety of the first movie.  You could easily tell what was going on, instead of trying to make sense of two giant piles of scrap metal hatefucking each other.

My kids (5 and 3) have been watching the original cartoons and love the Transformers. I decided to show them the first Bay movie. They loved it for the special effects but I hated how the transformers looked just like every one else did at the time.

This looks much better.
