Over the weekend, producer Lorenzo DiBonaventura spoke to /Film about the Transformers spin-off Bumblebee. Since DiBonaventura is also the producer of Hasbro’s G.I. Joe franchise, we asked him about the upcoming Snake Eyes spin-off film.
Announced in May, the Snake Eyes movie found its director in Robert Schwentke just last week. Still in question was whether Ray Park, who portrayed Snake Eyes in both live-action G.I. Joe films, would reprise the role.

This is how you remind audiences that a PG-13 cut of Deadpool 2 is coming to theaters this week in the form of Once Upon a Deadpool. We’ve already seen a good amount of the back and forth between Deadpool and Fred Savage, reprising his childhood role from The Princess Bride, but a new promo features the longest scene yet between these two.
For those who don’t know, Ryan Reynolds is fiercely Canadian, and it looks like he’s bringing some of that maple pride to the Deadpool franchise because he puts up one hell of a defense for one of Canada’s most reviled exports: the rock band Nickelback. After Fred Savage makes an off-handed comment about Marvel movies licensed by 20th Century Fox being like The Beatles produced by Nickelback, Deadpool just can’t contain his frustration and he goes on quite the rant.

Not too long ago, a bunch of new details on the upcoming Disney Parks attraction Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge emerged, revealing some new information on the attractions that will populate the meticulously crafted new par of Disneyland and eventually Disney World. Now we have another glimpse at all the hard work that’s been going on behind the scenes thanks to a new photo from inside the park showing the life-size Millennium Falcon that will be on display outside the ride that allows attendees to pilot it.

The opening scene of Bumblebee plays out like a child’s fantasy: Brightly colored Autobots clash with the sinister Decepticons in a battle that feels like the cinematic realization of a little kid smashing his toys together. And it’s awesome.
It’s something that’s been missing from the progressively darker and grittier iterations of the Transformers movies, whose brand of “Bayhem” have prevented the films from being anything close to fun. Michael Bay loaded every frame of his Transformers movies with so much visual chaos that the senses become overwhelmed and, ultimately, dulled. But Bumblebee director Travis Knight peels back the layers of epic, hectic spectacle to find the warm, beating heart that the Transformers franchise has always been missing.
