What better way to beat the heat and stay cool than inside the cozy confines of a movie theater.
Four new movies will debut Wednesday, headlined by the newest Transformers movie – “Transformers: The Last Knight.”
By the end of the weekend, there will be 26 new movies out in theaters.
In the latest Transformers movie, the fifth directed by Michael Bay, iconic superhero Optimus Prime appears to play a villain and is shown fighting fellow Autobot (the good guys) Bumblebee.
Another Transformers movie might seen like overkill and redundant to some.
$400 million How much the movie “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” grossed in 2009
But the previous movie, “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” did gross more than $245 million in 2014.
Eight years ago, Bay’s “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” generated more than $400 million.
How will this Transformers movie do?
Some early reviews haven’t been very kind, like this one from TheVerge.com.
Then again, it seems like any review of a Bay movie criticizes the quick storytelling format that the famous director often uses.
Other movies being released Wednesday are: “Barbie,” “Desolation,” and “Les Pecheurs de Perles Met.”
