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.
Never miss a local story.
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.”
