Bad Boys, Armageddon, and Pearl Harbor are some of the movies Michael Bay is always remembered for. As well as sagas, his name is linked to one of the most successful films of the last two decades. The answer is none other than Transformers. This American filmmaker directed the five films that make up the saga of these robots.
“There were too many of them”, Bay now admits, fifteen years later. In 2007, the first installment of the series was released. Last year’s film, The Last Knight, did not perform as well at the box office as the previous films. Hence, the producers decided to take a chance on the first spinoff: Bumblebee.
Is there a reason Michael Bay wasn’t assigned to direct this film? There was something Spielberg had to do with it. The producer of Schindler’s List directed his partner to stop after the third installment was completed.
In spite of my promise, the studio begged me to make a fourth, and this one too made over a billion at the box office. Michael Bay said he was going to stop with this one, but they begged him again, and that’s when he decided to stop.
His first reaction when he was asked to direct the Transformers film was: “I have no idea what I’m doing?” “It was a technology that wasn’t sure if it would work, but it did.” He added. Digital effects had never been so reflective before, so they charted a new course. I enjoyed the experience. There were more than 700 million tickets sold and a lot of viewers watching,” he explained.
synopsis of Bumblebee
Trying to escape, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small town on the Californian coast in 1987. When Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld) is about to turn 18 and trying to find her place in the world, she discovers a battle-damaged and decomposing Bumblebee.
After Charlie revives him, she quickly realizes this is not an ordinary yellow VW. It is this way that the story begins in the first installment of the Transformers saga Bumblebee. Travis Knight directed this film starring Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena, Pamela Adlon, and Stephen Schneider.
There is no director in the film, but Michael Bay is one of the producers. Travis Knight appears in this action film alongside Steven Spielberg, which has received very good reviews. She is regarded by many as the best movie of all time. On Saturday, August 7, it will begin at 10:00 p.m. at La 1.
