A sequel into Transformers spin-off Bumblebee is reportedly in development at its studio Paramount Pictures, Due to This Movie’s International box office performance of 413.5 million (Roughly Rs. 2,949.33 crores).
That’s significantly less than each mainline Transformers entrance, including the last one from 2017 — The Last Knight — which was considered a’collapse’ at $605.4 million. Of course, this was since the Transformers franchise has double scaled the $1-billion markers — with chapters three and four, 2011’s Dark of the Moon and 2014’s Age of Extinction, respectively — but moreover, Bumblebee continues to be cheaper to produce for Paramount than each other Transformers movie.
Deadline brings word of the newest development, claiming that Paramount Pictures has a Bumblebeesequel in the works, after a animated Transformers film and more mainline entrances that”may introduce new characters and bring others together”. Both the Bumblebee manager Travis Knight and writer Christina Hodson have stated in interviews that they have thoughts for a Bumblebee sequel, which will explore the time-gap between Bumblebee’s 1980s setting and Michael Bay’s first Transformers movie, place around 2007.
“When I get to the end of a few of my films, I always envision what is next for the characters,” Knight told CinemaBlend last month. “And so, in my thoughts, I have all these scenarios and adventures that perform, both with Charlie [Watson, performed by Hailee Steinfeld] and with Bee and everybody else. We’ll see if the world wants more. Maybe we will explore some of those things.”
“I really do. I know exactly what I wanna do with one,” Hodson told Variety earlier this month, when asked when she’s thoughts for a Bumblee sequel. “I don’t know if we are gonna take action — we’ve got to see if crowds go and watch this movie. However, I know where I need to go with another 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 US, $108.8 million (about Rs. 775.44 crores) from China, and $187.6 million (roughly Rs. 1,337.86 crores) from different markets. In India, Bumblebee had grossed $1.7 million (about Rs. 12.12 crores) until last week. Even better, Bumblebee has the highest critical acclaim of almost any movie in the Transformers franchise, with a 92 percent rating on testimonials aggregator Rotten Tomatoes.
