Transformers 4: Do You Want More CGI Robots or Real Steel?

Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon


Do you want another Transformers movie?

Michael Bay has confirmed that he is signed on to direct Transformers 4, expected in theaters June 29, 2014.

Shia Labeouf has previously said that he was not coming back for more sequels in this franchise.

They have also confirmed that this movie will not be a reboot of the franchise, but will be a continuation of the series, with a new storyline.

Most trilogies are failures because Hollywood is trying to make a buck, rather than making a great movie. For more on this common recurrance read my article, Trilogies Should Follow These Simple Rules.

Honestly, the Transformer movies sequentially have bigger explosions with each installment, and increase the robot on robot action, but lack in human connectibility. We have a hard time relating to cold, hard steel.

However, the movie, Real Steel (2011), did what the Transformers franchise could not - connect with the audience. In this Hugh Jackman movie, a father and son train a sparring robot to fight in the big leagues with robot boxers. This movie connected with those who had a rocky relationship with their father or son.

I really enjoyed the movie, Real Steel, and would recommend it to anyone over the Transformer movies.

Now, check out the new Chevy Sonic RS that will be in Transformers 4.
