The seventh installment of the Transformers film saga, or what is the same, Transformers: Awakening of the Beasts o Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, delayed its theatrical release for nothing more and nothing less than a year. The same goes for the new movie Star Trek Of which there is hardly any information, both premiered in 2023 instead of 2022. Thus, the new Transformers movie goes from June 24, 2022 to June 9, 2023, while the new installment of Star Trek for June 9, 2023 to December 22, 2023 to make room for the new Transformers. This has been announced by Paramount Pictures without justifying such surprising changes in the schedule for their next releases.
Transformers and the Beast Wars
Thus, after achieving creative control of the Transformers saga after a decade with Michael Bay at the helm in one way or another, Paramount intends to give a breath of fresh air to such a hackneyed giant robot franchise. From this new direction the spin-off was born Bumblebee with Haile Steinfeld (an actress that we will see soon in Marvel Studios’ Hawkeye) and the seventh main installment that concerns us and that will bring to the big screen the Beast Wars.
Now, and as announced The Hollywood Reporter, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is going to 2023 despite having a rather plausible release date of June 2022 after two long-awaited premieres like Jurassic World: Dominion and Lightyear from Pixar. What no longer seems a completely correct decision is the new date for 2023, since it will coincide with Shazam: Fury of the Gods and a new movie of Pixar, still no confirmed title.
Transformers: Awakening of the Beasts (Transformers: Rise of the Beasts) will be starring Anthony Ramos (Godzilla: King of the Monsters, In The Heights) y Dominique Fishback (Project Power) under the direction of Steven Caple Jr. (Creed II).
For its part, the new installment of the saga Star Trek directed by Matt Shakman (Scarlet Witch and Vision) is delayed for half a year despite the fact that practically nothing is yet known about its plot or if it will follow the thread of the previous ones with the celebrated one. reboot from J.J. Abrams from a few years ago with Chris Pine.
Be that as it may, Brian Robbins, Paramount’s new executive director, has spoken out on the matter, assuring that “there is no doubt that great films in theaters are the lighthouse that guides the franchises. We are working on it, and I really have nothing to say because I am waiting for development. I’m looking forward to getting to it; we are not there yet, but we will arrive soon ”.
