The Autobots and Decepticons arrive on Earth and encounter their animal-based counterparts in the Maximals and Predacons as the final battle for the All Spark and the fate of Cybertron begins with Transformers: War for Cybertron: Kingdom on Netflix.
Paramount shifts around a number of theatrical release dates, a ridiculously expensive Optimus Prime is coming from Hasbro, Sony and Netflix sign a massive exclusivity deal, Ancient Aliens is getting a movie adaptation, rapper DMX dies, and more in this week’s News Shotgun.
Steven Spielberg and The Duffer Brothers are bringing Stephen King’s The Talisman to Netflix, Borderlands adds another cast member, Comic-Con 2021 will be virtual again, The Simpsons and Superman & Lois renewed for new seasons, Silent Night, Deadly Night is getting a reboot, future Lionsgate theatrical movies will be exclusively on Starz and more in this week’s News Shotgun.
Paramount may have finally given Transformers fans what they’ve wanted after 10 years of torture at the hands of Michael Bay as the upcoming 80s set prequel Bumblebee features glorious looking G1 characters and what seems like a genuinely affecting friendship between Bee and 18-year-old Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld).
Either through reprogramming or his own decision, Optimus Prime returns to Earth to ready it for destruction so Cybertron can live again in this summer’s fifth Transformers movie, The Last Knight.
The fifth entry in the Transformers franchise arrives next summer with a plot involving the Middle Ages, World War II and Optimus Prime returning from space ready to kill everyone.
