Transformers Trilogy Already Approved by Studio Execs

Transformers hype is building more and more, with just a little over a month left until it finally hits theaters on July 4th. This latest bit of news is interestingly not even related to Transformers, at least the first movie. Two sequels, to make a full trilogy, have been mentioned briefly before (including that Megan Fox is already returning), but a short report from the British website Digital Spy states that that both sequels have been given early approval from the execs at DreamWorks.

With the ever building buzz getting even greater as release date nears, I think the execs are as excited as all of the fans and have already made this decision very early on. Only if the film vastly under-performs at the box office would they maybe reconsider giving the full go-ahead. The only other thing to consider is whether it was made early enough (perhaps, last year) for Michael Bay to work it into the script and the movie without making it look too much like an "added after the fact" thing. For now, we'll still call this a rumor until we hear official confirmation from the studio, which probably won't arrive until after opening weekend.

As fans, we'll all discover whether a trilogy will be worth it when Transformers finally hits theaters on July 4th!

    If only it would be a trilogy. I doubt that very much. Spider- Man and Pirates were to be "trilogy" only... And now they are in talks for them each to have more movies.... I only hope they stick to a trilogy or say more movies are on the way.
  • That's unfortunately true Samantha. Who knows, we won't know if they'll want to continue to a Transformers 4 until probably 4 or 5 more years down the line once the 2nd and 3rd are made and about to hit theaters (and make millions more).
  • Here's the funny thing: the studios really don't need to pitch this as a trilogy. I think that if it does well, the studio can just come out and say, "We at Paramount are thrilled that the American moviegoing public enjoyed Transformers, and we are pleased to announce that we will be making at least one more film for you all to enjoy." I know that this is because trilogies are the current trend, but why pigeon-hole yourself into three moives when you leave the door open for a ton more without disappointing people? It's just something I don't understand.

    This movie is a dream come true for movie execs - no big name actors are needed because Transformers is about big CGI robots! They can make enormous amounts of cash without having to pay any actor a huge salary. For the sequels they could focus less on the human characters and more on the transformers themselves. They could make a 100% CGI prequel movie about Cybertron and the war between the Decepticons and Autobots before they came to Earth.
