Paramount sets release dates for the next three Transformers films
Up until now, the general wait for a new TRANSFORMERS movie has been about 2-3 years. Given the insane amounts of money they bring in, this may come as no surprise, but Paramount Pictures is immediately stepping up their TRANSFORMERS game. They have issued a release date, not only for TRANSFORMERS 5, but for 6 and 7 as well.
Michael Bay and Mark Wahlberg will be back for TRANSFORMERS 5, which is set to hit theaters on June 23, 2017. Regardless of whether or not they stay on for future installments, it looks like we'll be getting TRANSFORMERS 6 on June 8, 2018, followed by TRANSFORMERS 7 on June 28, 2019. Those dates aren't set in stone by any means given that TRANSFORMERS 5 is currently going up against WONDER WOMAN, and the 6th installment is currently going head to head with GODZILLA 2.
Michael Bay is always saying that each TRANSFORMERS movie is "the last one he'll do," although I have no doubts that Paramount would be looking to sign him for the next trilogy of films. Regardless, I'm sure they're they're either looking to shoot multiple films at once, or sign a different director for each installment (a la STAR WARS). In any case, we're going to see A LOT more of Optimus and his gang in the coming years.
Remember when seeing a Transformer in a live-action movie was actually cool? Yeah, that lasted all of one movie...
