Coming hot off the heels of the Red Knight piece reported on earlier today, we now have a gallery's worth of concept art for Transformers The Last Knight, coming from three artists, sent to us by two Seibertronians, Deadput and IAPETUS_PRIME. The first work is of Barricade, from Josh Nizzi's instagram, who does look quite similar to the final version of his character art, but there are some subtle differences, like his head. Here's Josh's caption.
#barricade from #transformersthelastknight. ILM ended up putting a different head on him later on.

ILM of course referencing the famous effects studio, Industrial Light and Magic.

The next set comes from artist Thomas Pringle, mainly, with some collaboration pieces with Furio Tedeschi. They depict scenery, such as a sunken shark-looking robot, as well as various ships and fuori terra backdrops, as well as a detailed look at Megatron's alt mode. Check the staggering amount of images mirrored below.

Ship exterior sure does look a hell of a lot like the entrance of the derelict ship in alien

Am I the only one who thinks that Barricade concept art looks bad*ss? I definitely prefer the concept over the actual.

An exclusive article from Variety tells that Paramount's film financing partner Huahua, a media company based in China, is angry at "losing tens of millions of dollars on a $1 billion slate-financing deal with Paramount Pictures".

The anonymous source, close to Huahua, says the following in the article:

We have incurred losses for the first months of the current year. These are not trivial losses; they are huge losses.


Viacom needs to explain a better plan for how it spends [our] investment money


This has prompted Viacom (the owner of Parmount) executives to visit China in hope to reassure Huahua.

The article specifically highlights Transformers: The Last Knight as a major factor in the current distress, here is another quote from the article:

The company was particularly incensed that the most recent “Transformers” did not perform better in China. The film made nearly $230 million in the Middle Kingdom, but that was a significant drop-off from the $320 million earned by its predecessor, “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” in 2014.

Me as well in fact I thought of a way to use both designs that would of made people happy.

The concept art up there would be the actual Barricade

Image


While the one used in the film would become Barricade's Vehicon squad which would be kind of like a real life police squad and there would be around 6-8 of them in the movie...they would be cannon fodder but they would be awesome while being so. and would probably be a reason to have some of the Decepticons survive the movie or at least last until the final battle unlike what happened to them in the movie.

Image

As you can see by the art alone there is some differences between the two designs besides the heads for example Barricade is black and white while the Vehicons would be blue and white, the arm guns are different as well...also if this was my movie only Barricade would have knuckledusters and Barricade would keep his old "To punish and enslave" motto while the Vehicons would have "Keep calm and hail Megatron" that was on Barricade's car later in the film.

Huh while making this post I just noticed the revamped concept art has the rear view being the same colors and design (gun arm) as the first version Josh did but it has the new head.

Damn, that's surprising. Maybe this'll prompt Paramount into giving the movies a different approach?

I personally think its because Paramount was relying on this Transformers film to balance out the year's losses so far. So not only did its own budget need to be met, but previous losses too. And as of now, it has barely made back its budget in terms of revenue Paramount is actually getting.

Let's certainly hope so. You'd think they would listen to the fans or the declining interest in the movies.

It's franchise fatigue...the movies being mediocre just sped up the process that's finally starting to catch up with marvel films like look how Spiderman is doing.

I don't think the movies becoming "great" is going to help much...the awe factor that was around for 2007 and Rotf for Transformers movies being a new and big thing is gone so if a reboot happens all that's really going to happen is.

"Oh hey look another Transformers movie"

When was the last time people got excited for reboots again?

Furio uploaded another angle of the Knight helmet we have seen before so while nothing exciting it's something and I rather get a whole lot of concept art that might be a little repetitive then barely anything that leaves me wanting more.

I like how the eyes look though.

Yeah the Galvatron and Prime on the poseter are very likely placeholders.

I recognize that Galvatron as a fan made render and the Optimus is from some fan art I think

I honestly think if they took a few years off and did something with a better director they could pull it off.

Maybe Hasbro needs to make some movies of their other properties and once they're established, THEN introduce a rebooted Transformers into their movieverse.

There is one thing that saddens me about all of this. Are the movies good...No they are not. Well I probably give them more credit than most, but I cant deny they are a mess, especially this latest one...

Still there are internet trolls everywhere celebrating the *death* of this franchise. Its not that they want a fresh take on Transformers, they legitimately want it to go away, forever, and sad to say, I can see this happening.

Most fans hope, maybe this will get Paramount to rethink things and start over. But remember, this film franchise is only a decade old. Its more likely to cease completely, which makes me sad.

The Chinese ain't the only ones that are disappointed. The Last Knight did a good deal worse then was expected financially, and it was projected to be one of the lowest of the franchise. Also, they invested 1 BILLION DOLLARS. That's not a little bit of money. I'd say they have the right to be a bit so-called 'whiney'. If I loaned someone a billion dollars, I'd be pissy too if I didn't get it back.

This is unfortunately very true. I've seen it all over the place. People wanting the franchise to go away. However, the movies are all they see. The franchise goes further beyond the movies. The shows and to a much lesser degree, the comics, often have to ride on the success of these movies. If the movie franchise goes away, along with the audience they have and bring, I think it may signal the decline of the entire brand.

I like hearing good news about Transformers, but I make no secret of the fact that I don't think much of the 'Bayverse' films. They're too formulaic for my taste, too predictable. Bay has a number of gimmicks that he's known for in his movies, and for Transformers in particular he seems to be going through a playbook step by step. And in the most recent movie, they put more emphasis on camera movement and rotation than on good writing. Just being in an IMAX theater doesn't mean people will like it.

And what's the deal with having the actors either screaming at the top of their lungs, or mumbling/muttering so low under their breath, that you can't understand a word they're saying? It isn't just Transformers doing that either, it's in lots of films and TV shows. It's like the writers gave up on having the characters actually saying anything and just have them mumble to cover up the fact that what they're saying really isn't very interesting.
