A sequel into Transformers spin-off Bumblebee is reportedly in development at its studio Paramount Pictures, thanks to the film’s global box office performance of $413.5 million (about Rs. 2,949.33 crores).
That is significantly less than every mainline Transformers entrance, such as the last one from 2017 — The Last Knight — that was considered a’collapse’ at $605.4 million. Of course, this was because the Transformers franchise has twice scaled the 1-billion markers — with chapters four and three, 2011’s Dark of the Moon and 2014’s Age of Extinction, respectively — but moreover, Bumblebee has been cheaper to produce for Paramount than each other Transformers movie.
Deadline brings word of the new development, claiming that Paramount Pictures has a Bumblebeesequel in the works, following a animated Transformers movie and more mainline entrances that”may introduce new characters and bring others together”. Both the Bumblebee manager Travis Knight and writer Christina Hodson have said in interviews that they have ideas to get a Bumblebee sequel, which will explore the time-gap involving Bumblebee’s 1980s setting and Michael Bay’s first Transformers movie, place approximately 2007.
“When I get to the conclusion of one of my movies, I envision what is next for the figures,” Knight told CinemaBlend last month. “And so, in my mind, I’ve got all these situations and adventures that play out, both with Charlie [Watson, performed by Hailee Steinfeld] and with Bee and everyone else. We are going to see whether the world needs more. Maybe we will explore some of those things”
“I do. I know exactly what I wanna do with one,” Hodson told Variety earlier this month, when asked if she’s ideas for a Bumblee sequel. “I really don’t know if we’re gonna take action we’ve got to see if crowds go and see this film. However, I know where I want to decide on the next one.”
Paramount believes moviegoers have completed their job, taking Bumblebee to $413.5 million in the global box office, with $117.1 million (roughly Rs. 835.21 crores) from the united states, $108.8 million (about Rs. 775.44 crores) in China, and $187.6 million (about Rs. 1,337.86 crores) from other markets. In India, Bumblebee had grossed $1.7 million (about Rs. 12.12 crores) until last week. Even better, Bumblebee gets the highest critical acclaim of almost any movie from the Transformers franchise, with a 92 percent rating on testimonials aggregator Rotten Tomatoes.
