A long piece in Deadline features producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura discussing the current power of the cinema experience, where the Paramount and Huahua partnership can lead, and what is in store for the Transformers universe from this point forward - with a nod at the Bumblebee spin-off - looking at numbers and the experience of watching a movie itself. You can read some relevant snips below, and the full article here.

Transformers News: Lorenzo di Bonaventura on China Market, Future of Transformers Movies, More


With Paramount still waiting on Huahua to financially commit to the studio, there’s also been some concern in the industry that China’s interest in Hollywood is waning. But di Bonaventura isn’t that cynical. In regards to China’s interest in Hollywood, “It’s happening,” says the producer. “I think it’s starting and stopping because there are lessons to be learned. We can only accelerate the pace. The more we do it, the more refined we get at it.”

di Bonaventura has pacted with China on a few Transformers movies, i.e. Huahua Media on Transformers: The Last Knight and China Movie Channel on Transformers: Age of Extinction. In those cases, a Transformers film received a certain amount of product placement from the Middle Kingdom, i.e. China’s automobile industry. In such a case, that type of branding contributes money toward a film’s bottom line. It’s different for each movie, whether it goes toward a film’s production cost or P&A. But in a case such as Last Knight, there was $20M of Chinese media perk.

[...]

Through five movies, the Transformers franchise has grossed $817M alone in China. The Hasbro movies’ explosion at the box office have been in tandem with the boom of the Middle Kingdom’s exhibition infrastructure, including Imax and 3D. The first Transformers movie ten years ago grossed $37.2M in China, repping only 5% of its $709.7M global gross. Chinese tickets sales hit a peak with 2015’s Transformers: Age of Extinction, raking in $320M, or 29% of its $1.1 billion worldwide haul. This summer’s Transformers: The Last Knight continued to yield strong results in China with $228.8M; an even greater share of the pic’s global ticket sales, 38% of $605.4M.
Paramount Pictures

Bumblebee is expected to refresh the franchise after Last Knight, while not losing the spirit that Michael Bay has hammered out. Last Knight slowed in ticket sales, as the movie was a challenge for more sophisticated audience markets to decipher from its previous installments. Bumblebee is different in that it’s a period piece that takes place in 1987 and will only star four Transformers in total, as opposed to previous’ titles massive robot car ensembles. Bumblebee opens on Dec. 21 next year.

It turns out there are two different Crosshairs releases for the Transformers: The Last Knight toyline. One has an issue with a wheel popping off easily and his guns not being able to peg into his cape properly. You can go to the 5 minute mark of the review below to see an example of such issues. He was rereleased soon after with these issues fixed. The problem is that both are being put on shelves at the same time in the same markets but the good news is that they are each coded differently so that you know which one you are getting.

According to Yonoid from Cybertron.ca, the embossed number on the back of the box for the fixed version is 72011. The one with the issues has the number 72081 instead.

Coming to us once again from fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999, we have a video review of the Allspark Tech Megatron figure from the Last Knight toyline! Check out Chuck's review and his accompanying thoughts below, and be sure to let us know your thoughts in the Energon Pub.

One of the things that amazed me about The Last Knight toy line, was how the different versions of Megatron, were able to transform differently into roughly the same jet mode. The Allspark Tech version is no different, simplifying the transformation to the most basic steps, we again get a very good representation of its movie jet mode. While this line isn't for everyone, Megatron is a solid addition that stands on its own.

Thanks to a report from Seibertronian westjames/notirish, we have two interesting pieces of news, both relating to the Transformers The Last Knight Deluxe Hot Rod figure! First up is another chance to grab this elusive figure, as he is now back in stock at Walmart.com!

Second is the strangest story: Hot Rod has been listed on Target.com in the US. This is the second time the (apparently former) Walmart exclusive figure has appeared on a non-Walmart website, further confirming that something behind the scenes has happened to change the exclusitivity of the figure. This might be good news for collectors and fans however, as, while he hasn't been spotted anywhere in the US at physical retail yet, he might crop up in additional big box stores other than Walmart.

Continuing the build-up of its movie side-company, after the Allspark Animation trademark registration, Hasbro has appointed a new head of Allspark Studios according to Variety: Greg Mooradian. The news brings the consequence of a development of Hasbro's current deal with Paramount going forward too, but for now, read more about the appointment here and below!

Hasbro has hired seasoned veteran Greg Mooradian to oversee the company’s film division, Allspark Pictures, as it attempts to create a full-fledged movie studio. As president of Allspark, he will oversee film and television production starting in January. Sources say the company has been making an effort to raise money to start its own studio for some time, and is trying to attract funding in the nine-figure range in order to properly develop its own slate of films. The hope is to transform itself into an industry player to rival Marvel Studios.

[...]

Mooradian is currently a production executive at Fox 2000. It’s a homecoming of sorts for Mooradian, who previously worked at Paramount, helping guide “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” to the big screen, as well as Hasbro hits like “G.I. Joe” and “Transformers.” He left Paramount in 2013.

After this summer's farings for Transformers: The Last Knight, numbers have also been compiled for its home release on DVD and BluRay, along with digital streaming and rental - now that at least North American and Australian markets have received the movie.

According to Variety, the latest Paramount live-action movie debuted at number one over previously released Wonder Woman as far as physical discs are concerned, but number two in terms of digital release and rental. You can check out the whole article here, and the relevant parts below!

“Transformers: The Last Knight,” from Paramount Home Media Distribution, debuted at No. 1 on both national home video sales charts the week ended Sept. 30.

But Warner’s “Wonder Woman” movie, although bumped down to the No. 2 spot, remained in high demand, selling 87% as many units as the latest “Transformers” film in its second week of release.

[..]

On Home Media Magazine’s rental chart for the week ended Oct. 1, “Wonder Woman” shot to No. 1 now that its brief week-long holdback from Redbox is over.

“Transformers: The Last Knight” debuted at No. 2, while “47 Meters Down” bowed at No. 3. (Both Paramount and Lionsgate release their films to Redbox on the same day they become available for sale.)
