I'm not really into steelbooks, I just try to get whichever version has the most actual content. Target's TLK BRD was the only version that included Machinima's CW. I'm hoping at least one release of BB will have TR & PotP included. Yeah I know these series are horrible, still I'd like to have them in some format for the sake of completion.

So...no word on bonus content yet I assume, since we dont even have a release date.

I love how this movie has been steadily and nicely bringing in more money, and Japan doesn't get the movie for another month and a half yet!

After finally seeing the movie about a week ago (I loved it, it was everything I hoped it would be), I kinda got the desire to see what this movie's Bumblebee robot mode design would look like with the other movie Bumblebee vehicle modes/parts like how they did with the 76 Camaro; main desire is to see it with the black with yellow accents 67 Camaro from AOE, but any of the modern Camaros would be cool too.

So excited at how well the movie is doing both in the states and abroad! Can't wait to see what it will do in Japan and hopefully they greenlight a sequel soon!

While Bumblebee’s US theatrical run may be winding down, we have word that Bumblebee will journey on on a foreign shore familiar to many Transformer fans: China. Taken directly from the China Box Office Twitter, Bumblebee has been renewed for showings until March 2nd.

For those unfamiliar with Chinese regulations, most foreign films are restricted to about a month in theaters. To have Bumblebee extended required the studio's filing of an official request to Chinese authorities. This is an apparent first in the Transformers franchise, seeing as most records indicate no other Transformers film has ran in China long enough to substantiate a renewal. With the extension, Bumblebee’s run will last 57 days in total, dwarfing The Last Knight and Age of Extinction's runs of 31 and 35 days respectively.

With Bumblebee grossing the least of all Paramount's films, and with overseas revenue tending to be more lucrative than domestic, this extension may be the push Bumblebee needs to catch up with its predecessors.

What are your thoughts? Do you see this as a sign of good faith from Paramount, or does this seem more like a desperate attempt to increase the film's relatively-low profits? Do you care? Let us know what you think in the forums below, and stay tuned to Seibertron for more Transformers News and Reviews.

Well first of all I'm surprised that neither AoE nor TLK got an extension like this, considering Chinese involvement in those films. Or maybe it's like you said, Bumblebee is not doing as well as those movies did financially.

Actually I think aoe and tlk would have got similar extensions if they were released at the same time that bee was. I think paramount will be happy with the money it's made compared to how much it cost so I don't think that's the reason at all

Ultimately it is a shame. If this film had been the first live action Transformers, I think this would have been extremely well received. Sadly the oversaturation of Bayformers may have poisoned the well, so to speak.

Or maybe people didn't like it because it wasn't as great as some fans think it was.

"Greatness" is subjective. As a Decepticon fan, ALL Transformers films, baring '86, have been a series of perpetually huge disappointments. Without mentioning the bizarre fetishising of Prime and Bumblebee.

Nevertheless It is better than Bayformers, although that isn't a particularly high standard to begin with. A friend who is a non-Transformers fan went to see Bumblebee and he enjoyed it. In summation, his final words on the film were "it was a Transformers film not made by a sexual predator" :lol:

Like you said about "greatness," "better" is also subjective. You think it was better than Bayformers. I don't. That's the good thing about opinions. We can have different ones. This movie is the first TF film I don't care to ever see again. And going by the box office, I'm not the only one. I'm not saying it's horrible, but I don't think it was good. The story and character development was on par with Bayverse, but it was missing the big action pieces. I wouldn't have minded that if the story was better.

I saw the first Bayformers twice, the second once and the third likewise, before tapping out. Never gone back to them, never bought them on DVD or the toys etc Because I don't support things I don't like, even within a series that I do. The emphasis on humans, shows the creators behind Bayformers don't get what Transformers is. By the same token, over-humanising Transformers in IDW demonstrated the same thing to me, hence why I turned my back on that too.

Transformers is not rocket science to get right. But when you use the very core of the series as a backdrop, you are being disingenuous in what you are making.

The story for Bumblebee was a simple one, not award winning by any means. An origin story, clearly skirting the line between Hard and Soft Reboot, before they cowardly back-peddled out of the idea completely. But it is less focused on superficial spectacle (and flaunting Bay's Jingoistic nonsense) than tell a story, which is one mark that in particular, that puts it above Bayformers.

Thing is paramount never said it was anything but a prequel, it was us fans that always brought on the speculation about its status. I mean it's not like tf designs didn't radically change from one installment to another already... (amarda -> Energon -> Cybertron, Prime -> Rid 2015, all of IDW practically) Knight thought he could change the looks and still get away with it being a prequel.

Also re: humans in the franchise, it all depends on the story you want to tell, if its just a war story the humans (other then celebrity voices as Studios want star power in the film somewhere... And no, the brand is not that kind of star power) will not be required. Doing a "in disguise" type of story then yeah, you need humans, there's a balance to strike.

I'm not even talking about what other people call it,that's largely irrelevant. To me, watching Bumblebee, it came across in it's execution as a Reboot. A Directorial change was that much of a breath of fresh air, in my view.

When it comes to humans, that balance is rarely struck. If one in five scenes of your film is on humans and not Transformers, in their titular film, it is not a Transformers film. By the same token if Transformers don't transform for the majority of your story, they are not Transformers. They are colourful generic robots ala latter IDWverse.

But that's only by your standards and definitions, not Hasbros or Paramounts. Also I would love it if the movies went more like IDW with characters and concepts, I still have hope that one day Hasbro will do a DC and start putting out direct to disc/stream animated movies based on IDW arcs or other past comic arcs that warrant the work.
