I sincerely doubt most people think of anyone other than the Hollywood actor/comedian when they hear about a "Martin Short" being in film/television.

Depends if you're into GT racing ;)
Acting and films aren't a big deal to everyone. It was only a half remembered interview after all, which is why I had the brain fart over the names in the first place.

Martin Short was great in Innerspace and Small Criminals? The one with Nick Nolte.

He was also great as the elf in the tv movie Merlin featuring Sam Neill in the lead role.

After seeing how Bay managed to make noteable actors such as John Malkovich and Anthony Hopkins cringey, I'm glad Bumblebee has a different director.

You get it? He's a comedic actor.....no disrespect to the actor himself.
Yeah, I know that was a very bad joke.

Sound editors Aadahl and Van Der Ryn Working on Bumblebee: The Movie

Postby Va'al » Sat Apr 21, 2018 2:27 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Thanks again to fellow Seibertronian westjames/notirish, we have a small piece of news concerning the crew of the Paramount live-action Transformers spin-off, Bumblebee: The Movie. In a piece about recently acclaimed A Quiet Place with Shoot Online, sound editors Ethan Van Der Ryn and Erik Aadahl revealed they are also working on the Bumblebee movie with director Travis Knight.

Van der Ryn and Aadahl are currently working on Transformers spinoff Bumblebee, a Christmas season release being directed by Travis Knight who made an auspicious helming debut with Kubo And The Two Strings.


The two have previous experience with the Transformers franchise, along with a pretty hefty resumé:

Van der Ryn and Aadahl carry an audio pedigree that was up to the script’s challenge, having teamed on a couple of Best Achievement in Sound Editing Oscar nominations--for Transformers: Dark of the Moon in 2012, and Argo the following year. Prior to connecting with Aadahl, Van der Ryn teamed with supervising sound editor Mike Hopkins to win a pair of Best Sound Editing Oscars--for The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers in 2003, and King Kong in 2006.

When Van der Ryn was in L.A. for the Academy Awards as a nominee for The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, he first met industry pro Aadahl who was teaching a sound class at USC. The two struck up a rapport with Van der Ryn later offering Aadahl the chance to work with him on Michael Bay’s first Transformers movie. Van der Ryn and Aadahl kept on collaborating after that, eventually making their bond official by co-founding E² Sound which originally operated out of rented sound design suites at Sony. Four years ago, E² moved to the Warner Bros. Studios lot; the sound shop has worked with assorted studios, including Universal, Fox, DreamWorks and Disney.


As we said, a brief update, but sound appreciators out there might be excited about this story!

CinemaCon is currently happening in the US, a mecca and celebration of all new movies coming out in the next year or so. One of those movies happens to be the upcoming Bumblebee film, and for the first time ever fans were shown a quick glimpse of the new installment. Below is not only some critic reactions from Twitter, but actually a synopsis of the footage shown from Comicbook.com! Responses seem to be very positive, with some getting excited as the teaser appeared to show a return of Starscream! Stay tuned later this week, as a teaser trailer has been rumored to drop soon!

An alarm goes off at 8:00 AM. Charlie shuts it off, unhappily waking up. Her room is covered in posters. She rocks out with headphones on while brushing her teeth. In the garage, her car is playing the same song. When she enters, it stops.

A piece of the car hits the floor. She look beneath it. Getting on a board with wheels, she slides under the car. Ultimately, she finds Bee’s face, which lights up in the eyes and stands up above her. She’s shocked. This thing fits in the garage! They have a standoff. Bee stumbles around. She reaches for the door handle but sees he is just stumbling around and scared as he huddles himself into the corner.

She approaches and says, “Hi.” Bee chirps back. He’s still scared and avoiding her in the corner. “Do you speak?: she asks. Bee nods to indicate he does not. He stands up, holding his neck, after seeing the wrench in her hand. He analyzes her hands and comes closer, allowing them to touch his face. He can understand her. “What are you?” she asks. “Where did you come from?” He shies away from answering. He points to her shirt. He is asking who she is. “I’m Charlie,” she tells him. “Charlie Watson, I’m 18 today. Actually, it’s my birthday today. What’s your name?” He shies away, with his ears going down. She rules, “You sound like a little bumblebee.” That’s what she’s going to call him from now on. “Matches your outfit, too,” she says.

Later, clips of Bee running from a helicopter, trucks exploding, Bee playing on the beach, driving Charlie around, and other Transformers cut into the frame. A red and white winged Transformer is fighting him. He uses his arm cannon. He fights fighter jets. Charlie does her best to help him. He lands in a desert

Lol at parts of the tweets. They seem to not be very aware of other franchises aside from the Movies and G1. Not a bad thing, but it makes me wish people like more experienced TF fans (from this site, TFWiki, and TFW2005) jumped into the fun, and not critics who are more invested in the MCU or Star Wars.

John Cena and Director Travis Knight on Bumblebee: The Movie

Motto: "The complain train is leaving the station."

Thanks to Seibertronian and news staffer William-James88 we are able to share with you an article on the upcoming film. Collider.com did an interview with the one and only John Cena and Director Travis Knight about Bumblebee: The movie. One interesting thing that can be learned from this is that there will supposedly be some Easter eggs relating to the Bay flicks.

In Travis Knight's interview he mentions that he grew up with Transformers and had some figures. He also tells us that there is a more limited cast of characters. John Cena is a little harder to hear but he is familiar with Transformers and claims to have owned some growing up. He sounds excited and wants to keep from spoiling which characters will be in the movie because he thinks it will be more exciting for the fans to be surprised.

I think it's a little early for marketing material considering it comes out in December. The hype will probably start at the end of summer or so I would think. There's been some big movies in the sci-fi action genre lately - Black Panther and Infinity War to name two. If it were me marketing this film I'd wait till at least July/August to advertise.

Composer Dario Marianelli to Score Bumblebee: The Movie

Postby Va'al » Thu May 10, 2018 1:50 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Via specialised site for cinema music Film Music Reporter, and one of their brief updates, we have news about who will be scoring the next - and for now last in this narrative universe - Paramount live action movie featuring the Transformers: Bumblebee The Movie.

According to the source, composer Dario Marianelli - who has worked on Kubo and The Two Strings with director Travis Knight previously - will be taking the helm for the score, though we are also to expect some 80s style rock according to previous coverage and initial images from the movie (if going by Hailee Steinfeld's attire, in any case, and Bumblebee's direction for vocal interaction via radio snippets). Check out more info below!

Dario Marianelli has been tapped to score the upcoming Transformers spinoff Bumblebee. The film is directed by Travis Knight and stars Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Jason Drucker, Kenneth Choi, Rachel Crow, Pamela Adlon, Stephen Schneider, Ricardo Hoyos, Abby Quinn and Grace Dzienny. The movie is set in 1987 and follows a teenage girl trying to find her place in the world as she discovers Bumblebee refuged in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Christina Hodson (Unforgettable, Shut In) wrote the screenplay. Michael Bay who helmed all the previous Transformers movies (scored by Steve Jablonsky) is producing the project with Knight, Lorenzo di Bonaventura (RED, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) and Stephen Davis (Ouija: Origin of Evil). Marianelli has previously collaborated with Knight on LAIKA’s 2016 feature Kubo and the Two Strings. Bumblebee is set to be released on December 21, 2018 by Paramount Pictures.

Marianelli (Atonement, Pride and Prejudice, Darkest Hour, V for Vendetta, Anna Karenina) has also recently scored the Italian drama Nome di donna, which opened in Italian theaters this past March. No word yet on a domestic release.

TBH the Bumblebee Movie looks really promising so far. The composer is decent and the movie doesn't raise any red flags so far. The trailer I've heard was really good. I'm just waiting for a trailer release to make my final say. I'm obviously gonna see it tho

Of all we've heard of it so far sounds like what I originally imagined (and kinda wanted) what the first movie from 2007 would be like.
