Transformers News: Director Michael Bay Creates Special Virtual Reality Experience For Fans With ILMxLAB Team

"TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT" DIRECTOR MICHAEL BAY CREATES SPECIAL VIRTUAL REALITY EXPERIENCE FOR FANS WITH ILMxLAB TEAM

Renowned director makes first foray into virtual reality platform, offering battling robot game free to fans through IMAX partnership at select AMC Theatres® locations in NYC and Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES, CA (June 29, 2017) – Fans of the Transformers movie franchise will finally know what it’s like to battle a Decepticon up close and personal, as film director Michael Bay takes VR to the next level with "Transformers: The Last Knight" VR Experience, Friday, June 30 for a limited time, free of charge, only in the IMAX VR centres at AMC Kips Bay 15 in New York City and across from The Grove in Los Angeles and in select AMC Theatres lobbies.

"I wanted to do something special for fans, to let them feel what it’s like to be in the middle of intense Transformers action," commented Mr. Bay. "ILMxLAB was a great partner in delivering this experience, and pushing the envelope of what VR can do."

The five-minute virtual reality game was produced by Mr. Bay in collaboration with the team from San Francisco-based ILMxLAB, in cooperation with Paramount Pictures, and provides the HTC Headset single-player experience of actually joining the hero Autobots and facing off against the Decepticons in a fast-paced shooter game. The result is a VR showdown putting fans right into the intense action of the Transformers movie franchise.

"We are thrilled to deliver ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ VR Experience to AMC guests in New York and Southern California," said Elizabeth Frank, Executive Vice President, Worldwide Programming & Chief Content Officer, AMC Theatres. "The VR experience produced by Michael Bay is a wonderful way for our guests to immerse themselves in the Transformers world, and it is a perfect complement to our IMAX VR at AMC Kips Bay 15 VR Centre."

"Transformers: The Last Knight" VR Experience will be available beginning Friday, June 30, free of charge, ONLY at the IMAX VR Centre across from The Grove in Los Angeles and at the IMAX VR Centre at AMC Kips Bay 15 in New York City, as well as AMC Theatres locations in New York City at the AMC 34th Street and AMC Lincoln Square 13 and at the AMC Orange 30 in Southern California. This is a limited run, only available in these theaters and these two existing IMAX VR centres.

"We’ve been longtime partners with Paramount and Michael Bay on the Transformers franchise, and look forward to delivering this exciting new experience in IMAX VR," said Greg Foster, CEO of IMAX Entertainment and Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp.

The "Transformers: The Last Knight" VR Experience is a single-player, fast-paced VR shooter game that teams you with Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Hound to recover a powerful weapon from the Decepticons. The player must work to protect and securely transport the weapon in order to prevent the destruction of a nearby metropolis. The experience opens with you in immediate peril, pressured by Decepticons attempting to steal back the weapon. Battling and racing through the countryside and then the outskirts of town, you are ultimately pinned down for a final climactic showdown.

With the movie now upon us, Deadline Hollywood has uploaded a new story highlighting what they think will happen money-wise with The Last Knight. While the United States don't appear to be holding a strong torch at the moment, with an estimated 5 day total of $70 million, down from $100 million for Age of Extinction, it is expected that international markets will push this movie to be a hit overall. You can find some of the highlighted text below, and you can read up on the whole story by following the above link.

In what looks to be another case of summer franchise fatigue at the domestic box office, Paramount’s Transformers: The Last Knight opens tonight in the U.S. and it’s projected to be the lowest opening in the Hasbro cinematic series with a five-day take of $70 million at 3,800 theaters.

.....

Age Of Extinction per Deadline’s film finance sources, minted a profit of $250M after all ancillaries with an estimated $30M in revenue coming from merchandising — the real reason why studios continue to keep these dusty franchises in business, particularly with the wane of home entertainment monies. Age Of Extinction and 2011’s Dark Of The Moon cleared $1.1 billion and $1.12B at the global box office, respectively, and the trick for Paramount is getting Last Knight to that same result.

While we have received and seen plenty of information already for the First Strike event - a Hasbro Universe crossover with IDW Publishing's comics - we have also the official launch press release courtesy of IDW directly! Check it out below.

The Plot To Destroy ALL Transformers Has Begun!
IDW Publishing Presents “First Strike” – A Hasbro Comic Book Event


San Diego, CA (June 19, 2017) – This August, General Joe Colton, the original G.I. JOE, will take the fight directly to the TRANSFORMERS home world of Cybertron in the Hasbro Comic Book Event of 2017 – First Strike!

This six-part, bi-weekly series will feature the talents of writers Mairghread Scott (TRANSFORMERS) and David A. Rodriguez (SKYLANDERS), with art by Max Dunbar (DUNGEONS & DRAGONS), and colors by Ander Zarate (MICRONAUTS).

Earth’s heroes have united after the explosive events of last year’s REVOLUTION! Bringing together G.I. JOE, ROM, the MICRONAUTS, M.A.S.K.: MOBILE ARMORED STRIKE KOMMAND, ACTION MAN, and the TRANSFORMERS, Earth has never been more secure now that it has become a member of the Council of Worlds due to Optimus Prime’s leadership.

But oversight and control isn’t what everyone wants; especially when that control is in the hands of alien forces…

The premiere season of post-REVOLUTION titles are heading towards their natural conclusions to make room for First Strike so fans can enjoy the action in one place (and go easy on their wallets during the event)! In addition to the main series, six additional one-shots will set the stage for the second season of the Hasbro comic universe, where fans will witness their favorite characters forming new alliances, paving the way for exciting adventures to come.

Look for Micronauts: First Strike, by Christos Gage and Chris Panda, G.I. Joe: First Strike, by Aubrey Sitterson and Ilias Kyriazis, and Optimus Prime: First Strike by John Barber and Guido Guidi in September.

M.A.S.K.: MOBILE ARMORED STRIKE KOMMAND.: First Strike, by Aubrey Sitterson and Ilias Kyriazis, Rom: First Strike, by by Christos Gage and Chris Panda, and TRANSFORMERS: First Strike by John Barber and Guido Guidi will follow in October.

These one-shots will explore more corners of the event for completest readers who just can’t get enough, while also providing a glimpse into what the future will bring for our heroes when the dust settles on the scorched planet of Cybertron at the conclusion of First Strike.

IDW’s Editor-in-Chief, David Hedgecock says, “This is what REVOLUTION has been building towards over the past year. It’s been an exciting first season of action in the Hasbro shared universe which laid the foundation for all-new stories and adventures, but now with FIRST STRIKE, we’re shaking things up and, once again, disrupting the status quo forever. It’s a perfect time for readers, new and old, to jump on board and join us for one raucously fun ride!”

The event kicks off in First Strike #0, now available as a GIVEAWAY in comic shops (ask your local retailer) and online at idwpublishing.com/first-strike. Inside you’ll discover more of what Joe Colton is plotting against the TRANSFORMERS and what our Earth’s heroes are up against! (Available while supplies last.)

In the back of the #0 issue, you’ll find a handy checklist for the entire event running through October, as well as a couple new #1s scheduled for November and December titled G.I. JOE: UNMASKED and ROM & THE MICRONAUTS, respectively. Keep checking the IDW site, as well as following IDW on social media, as more info about these exciting new titles becomes available!

About TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT
The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth.
