Preview screenings were held for Transformers Rise of the Beasts and the early reactions on Twitter are giving the film some "high praise" as Andy Samberg's Nic Cage would say. The consensus seems to be that Anthony Ramos and Mirage carry the film well and the 90s hip hop soundtrack is a great aspect to the film, adding to the 90s Brooklyn setting. The film is said to be a bit corny, in a Saturday cartoon kind of way, which makes sense for a film based on an 80s kids' cartoon, and there was also mention that the mcguffin aspect is the low point, which is something we could all have predicted. Still none of that seems to detract from the overall positive experience.

Of course, please remember that it is customary for early reactions to be disproportionally positive since the people who saw it are "influencers" who did not pay to watch it and are thus incentivized to be as positive as possible to be given such privilege again.

Here are some early reactions:

PacManNR7: Transformers RiseOfTheBeasts makes good use of the animated movie's storyline and integrates the Maximals and Terrorcons to good effect. Stakes are high and Scourge is a terrifying and powerful villain. Action-packed with a lot of heart (albeit with some cheese on top).

TheEricGoldman: Transformers RiseOfTheBeasts is really fun. It’s actually quite funny and the action is strong. I did find my eyes glazing over when they’d talk about this movie’s special object (this series sure loves those) but way better than Bay’s movies if not quite Bumblebee level.

GermainLussier: Totally dug Transformers RiseOfTheBeasts. It’s got some issues in the middle but it starts strong, has fantastic 90s hip hop, makes great use of the humans & the 3rd act is a blast. Plus I damn near jumped out of my seat at the end. Right up there with the 1st Bay & Bumblebee.

BrandonDavisBD: Transformers RiseOfTheBeasts plays like the ultimate Saturday morning cartoon.

Some dope Transformers action. Anthony Ramos & Pete Davidson are great, even if some of the dialogue is a little clunky. It’s a lean, fun movie and a promising start to something exciting.

VillainousComix: Transformers RiseOfTheBeasts delivers one of the better and more coherent installments in the franchise. They clearly understood what worked so well with 2018’s Bumblebee as ROTB has heart and the human characters are more likable. Mirage will walk away as the fan favorite.


joedeckelmeier: Transformers RiseOfTheBeasts is a lot of fun! Anthony Ramos carries the movie and Pete Davidson steals every scene as Mirage. The ending blew my mind and the music in the film is fire

ErikDavis: The new Transformers movie is pretty solid! LOVE the Brooklyn setting - Maximals & Scourge add a new spin & the action pops, especially the NY scenes. Mirage steals the show, but the true star is the absolute best soundtrack full of early ‘90s hip-hop hits. This ‘90s kid had fun.

MrControversy83: Transformers RiseOfTheBeasts was a blast! The Beast Wars crew finally shows up in what's arguably the BEST Transformers movie in the run. There's a lot of heart, humor, and Brooklyn pride in here; and it all makes for throwback popcorn fun.

Even taking the grain of salt into accounts of these influencers required positivity, I'll take it if it's really 2nd to BBM, as the '07 & BBM is a tie for me for the live-action movies.

With its unique ability, I don't mind this iteration of Mirage is here to stay for a few more movies, better comic relief than Bay's toilet humors.

Looking forwards to seeing this one, I have my tickets to see it on the 7th! Looks like it’ll have much more action than BB and, as much as I love the Bay movies, I am glad to hear there will be more focus on the bots.

Hearing some of Jablonsky’s score again is an awesome bonus!

This looks like promising feedback. Comparisons to TF1 and Bumblebee are also very good, as IMO those are the only movies where the human stuff actually blended with the TF action well.

People from or around Brooklyn tend to be big fans of it (in my experience, at least). New Yorkers in general tend to be pretty proud of anything overtly NY based too (not to same extent as people from Philadelphia, but still...).

I know several people who'll be swayed to see this movie due to the emphasis on the Brooklyn setting.

Paramount is ramping up the ad campaign, keeping it tight and concentrated with the bulk of it happening the month leading up to the film's release. Today, they released a featurette highlighting the location of Machu Picchu. Here we see new shots from the film featuring this location and interviews about filming the scenes. We also get a fun tidbit that this is supposedly the first Hollywood production to be filmed there and that the film was blessed by a Shaman.

Enjoy!

It may seen like a small deal, but I really like the fact the movie got a blessing from a local shaman. It suggests that they didn't only use the area as filming location, but they were in good terms with the poplulation and showed respect to people as a whole.

The hype for the film is growing in as me as the release date gets closer.

The Premiere for Rise of the Beasts took place in Singapore earlier today, and it was followed by a news conference where all kinds of questions were asked and answered. You can see the full conference HERE thanks to Reuters on Twitter but here is a breakdown of the more spoiler stuff (do not read beyond this if you want to avoid spoilers):

- There are no Decepticons in the film. The scene of Optimus vs a Decepticon in Brooklyn was removed from the final film. So for all those who doubted how they could fit all those factions in

- The film is officially said to not be a reboot. While it can be said to be a sequel to Bumblebee or a prequel to the Bay films, or even a stand alone film, the panel wanted to make it clear that this is not a reboot.

- Lorenzo di Bonaventura gives a really reductive take on Ironhide. Not a spoiler, but something I wanted to highlight because it really stirred me the wrong way.

- The end credit scene is a hint to a future crossover between Transformers and GI Joe

- There was a planned scene for Charlie, from the Bumblebee movie, to appear but it did not happen. She could be back for a future installment.

I don't consider these to be true "spoilers".
Nothing crucial here.

I remember my Brony days and a key element of a trio of ponies was they were looking for their butt-tattoos to appear, symbols that will decide their future. They were looking for it for at least 2 seasons and that was their main drive.
I could only see the episodes on the Seven Seas, way after they were released.
Of course I go to youtube.
Of course a prominent clipper appear in my recommended.
Of course there was the bold title complete with the obvious in-your-face thumbnail yelling "THEY FOUND THEIR BUTT-TATTOO". #-o

The parallel would be imagine if the internet existed in 1986 with youtube, and there would be a bold title complete with the picture, "OPTIMUS FUKKING DIES!" :-(

Now, THAT'S spoilers.

That actually kind of happened. At least half of that movie's trailers and commercials from back then all alluded to Optimus's death (saying "DOES PRIME DIE?!!"), instead of keeping it secret.

Going by what's been said about the movie both before and after release, this is one I'm definitely passing on. (Which is too bad; I grew up on Beast Wars as a child and was curious to see how they'd work on the big screen despite being Bayformers.)

Yeah, I with you. Regardless of the main plot and other characters, I don't have a good feeling about the Maximals. Maybe towards the end they'll reveal at least 1 or 2 Predacons.

Precisely. As well as the DoTM Megatron/Shockwave treatment.

I have a feeling these Beasties will be of the WFC-K ilk rather than the originals.

I rather the BW characters get their own movie/limited series, even if it's straight to Blu-ray/streaming.

Right. That's why I said maybe a couple of them get revealed somehow at the end, as a setup for the next movie, which *crosses fingers* will be all about Beast Wars. Wishful thinking, I'm sure.

And yet the Director says Reboot. "reboot for sure," is something that can't mean anything else.

So frankly it's conflicting information because Lorenzo so desperately wants it to not be, so ultimately we seem to be in a strange middle ground.

But we'll see what happens with the next film or in future news stories, it depends who's staying on board for future films.

Maybe if they included Transformers from the start, since the 2007 movie was critically and financially successful, the 2013 Joe movie could have been a crossover of sorts, off the heels of DoTM's big success.

And this right here is my main issue: the constant flip-flopping. This guy says it's a reboot, this guy says it's the same universe, this guy says it's a "new storytelling universe" - whatever that is -, the other guy says it's a reboot again; can't everyone involved with these films just pick one answer to the question and stick with it?! :BOOM:

Anyways, on lighter notes, guess Caple Jr. wasn't kidding when he said he wanted to evoke the feelings of Unicron's first appearance; he even borrowed the music! :lol: And good thing he did; that theme always gave me chills.

And it's nice to see how careful and respectful they were with a historical site like Machu Pichu. I really hope the same care reflects in the final product.

Watching the part in that video where he says it's a reboot, he's very wishy-washy about it, and continues by saying things like "There's things you could probably connect to it," and emphasizes Bumblebee as "clearly" a "huge connection to all the movies". When spelling out what he means by "reboot", he speaks of the movie's direction and such, never actually specifying it as a completely separate "reality" or "universe".

And there remains the possibility that he may end up not being the director of the next live-action movie to come after ROTB, and that new director could choose to spin things closer to the continuity (soup) of the Bay movies.

It honestly feels to me that he's using the word "reboot" like how Age of Extinction had been described as a "reboot", and we all know how that movie turned out in relation to Dark of the Moon.

I think that is indeed the reason. They have this IP that hasn't worked in the past so maybe attaching it to TF is the way to finally get everyone excited about it.

And yet the Director says Reboot. "reboot for sure," is something that can't mean anything else.


You say that and yet the context when he mentions that leaves a lot to interpretation. It is not cut and dry. At least not as cut and dry as Lorenzo's comments in the film's press conference. He's being very wishy washy. And as others have pointed out, while he did direct the film, he does not have final say, and might not direct the next one (or have final say on the next one, ect). It's Paramount and the producers who are keeping this in limbo, keeping it vague, on purpose. But I said it before and I'll say it again, it doesn't really matter regardless. If you can't be sure when watching the film, then whatever someone tells you won't change that. The film should speak for itself.

For sure but it's just another piece that doesn't confirm it one way or another, can't say it's either a reboot or not with 100 percent certainty so saying "officially confirmed not a reboot" is just as uncertain especially in an interview/livestream where some people in it seemed actually stoned.

Really says something when the directors of both Bumblebee and ROTB approach the film with a reboot like mind despite the producer doing literally anything he can to keep it not as a reboot.

Regardless of it all just can't stand Lorenzo as far as being a producer goes and not just in regards to his involvement in Transformers films, no faith in the Transformers x Gi-Joe idea considering Snake Eyes.

Fingers crossed for a new director and actually finishing the story started in The Last Knight.

The only way this Joe X-over can work is if they give them the Bee Movie treatment. Keep the Joes as much "G1" as possible, including the little bits of nonsensical silliness that comes with the Sunbow classic.

NOT trying to "reinvent the wheel" and making them "full mature edgy" like they did for the previous Joe 3 movies.

The Transformers Rise of the Beasts film has premiered and will be out soon for all to see. In the meantime, we have some fun images for you. These are scans from two books for children based on the film. While they may be based on earlier versions of the script, it is fun to see the ideas that were brought into the film and what may have been dropped. For instance, we see that the Freezer character is called a sweep and we see that Airazor brings up the concept of the Maximals being the Autobots' future (ALA the Kingdom cartoon).

We'll see if that sticks at all. But the best part is that below you will see some great art from TF artist extraordinaire Guido Guidi. Enjoy!

I love that idea that the Freezers are Scourge's "Sweeps."

Yes, I agree with all of that, because that's basically the truth to it all. This franchise is in continuity limbo on purpose to both give creativity to the new people on board but also retain any pre established fanbase. Personally, not a fan. I'd rather have something end and then do something clearly new.

I do want to clarify one thing though, regarding your quote. While we can see what's going on, the question was asked at the global press conference and the answer was that this is not a reboot. That is an official stance from the producer, speaking to the global press, after being asked to confirm how the film should be interpreted. So it's a fact that the production team does not consider this film to be a reboot when compared to the other films in the franchise.

And that piece of info helps us understand what can happen going forward. It means that Paramount can tie things up later if they want and it means that there won't be a clear severance from the other movies in the series.

For kids books, they have better artwork than most comic books today do.

Thanks to Guidi. My favorite TF artist followed by Andrew Wildman.

Good call.
Especially when we're getting so close.

I bought my tickets for June 10th afternoon so I do hope that no smart-asses will spoil me major details on Youtube or here. I'll have to get off the grid for almost 48 hours. 8-}
