Anthony Hopkins in Thor The Dark World

Give Transformers a bit of credit: after nine years and four installments, they still manage to surprise us every once in a while. In news you probably weren’t expecting to hear today, or ever, Sir Anthony Hopkins has just boarded Transformers: The Last Knight, the upcoming fifth entry in Michael Bay‘s obscenely lucrative alien robot car series. And yes, this means Transformers: The Last Knight now has an actual knight in its ranks.  Read More »

Eventually, they’re going to stop making Transformers movies. They have to quit at some some point. All things must pass. However, Paramount is betting big that their lucrative franchise will outlive the interest of director Michael Bay, who is set to helm his fifth entry in the series. After all, they’ve assembled an entire writers room dedicated to hashing out sequels and spin-offs for the next decade or so. Robots who can turn into cars and then back again so they can punch each other in the face are here to stay.

Now, the official Transformers movie Instagram has released a brief teaser for the upcoming fourth sequel, but don’t get your hopes up for anything too extravagant. This is just thirty seconds of ominous noises, an extreme close-up of Optimus Prime’s face, and a title reveal. That last one is the biggie, of course.

Iron Man vs Optimus Prime

This coming weekend we’ll see Captain America squaring off against Iron Man in Captain America: Civil War, dividing the Avengers into two different teams in a truly epic superhero battle. But before you head to theaters, why not see how Tony Stark and his armored battle suit fares against one of the Transformers? More specifically, how will Iron Man do when he has to face the Optimus Prime, the leader of the Autobots?

The latest episode of Super Power Beat Down, which is the first digitally animated episode of the web series, brings these two different heroes together for the first time ever. Are Iron Man’s repulsors and missiles any match for the arsenal that Optimus Prime has hidden in his body? Find out in the Iron Man vs Optimus Prime episode of Super Power Beat Down below.

I won’t say that the Transformers movie series is cursed. It’s too successful, too huge, and too popular to carry such a label, even if Transformers: Age of Extinction underperformed at the domestic box office. However, the Transformers movie series does have the nasty habit of chewing up actors and spitting them out and ensuring that nobody takes them seriously for a good long while. Look at Shia LeBeouf, whose time in the series saw him transition from a promising young actor into walking, weeping art project. Look at Megan Fox, who was reduced to a sex object and has had to spend the past few five years reminding us that she’s a perfectly fine actress with rock solid chops. Only Mark Wahlberg has weathered this series and that’s because he’s Mark Wahlberg – nothing embarrasses him anymore.

So the news that the young TV star Isabela Moner is joining the cast of Transformers 5 makes me want to grab her parents by shoulders and give them a good shake while demanding for them to explain why they obviously don’t love their child.

The pop-up book commemorates the 30th anniversary of Hasbro’s iconic robots in disguise, and it features paper creations that actually transform from vehicles into their respective robot forms with just the pull of a paper tab. It’s something that your kids, and even some adults, will be pretty impressed by.
