CAN EXPECT MORE TRANSFORMER SEQUELS

Thanks to its bumper opening & fantastic box-office earnings for “Transformers” and its sequel we expect more sequels of Transformers. Even though “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” didn’t live upto the expectations of the critics and audience, it was no surprise to the three-quel,”Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” making box-office history and a ton of money in the initial days of its release.

It is learned that ,”Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” had collections around $97.5 million over the holiday weekend, which makes it the biggest opening-weekend record holder for this year so far, which was previously set by “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.”

Well that’s the reason we’ll be getting more “Transformers” movies, no matter what Bay and star Shia LaBeouf have said or decided about their “retirement” plans. Even Paramount is currently thinking of ways to keep the franchise going,” Boxoffice.com editor Phil Contrino told MTV News. “Unfortunately, making a deal for a property this big won’t be easy,” he added, speaking to moving forward with the franchise without Bay and LaBeouf. “I’m sure a bunch of directors and stars will be kicked around publicly before new hires are made.”

According to senior writer Anthony Breznican from Entertainment Weekly, who said that the robots will live on to rule future box offices. “We will definitely see another movie; how soon is a good question,” he said. “I took Bay seriously when he said he was finished directing [the ‘Transformers’ films], and they can reboot them again with someone else. That’s not something you say if it’s a negotiating tactic. I believed him. I think Shia is serious,” he added. “Three movies in this universe are a lot for an actor. Unless you want to be known only as the ‘Transformers’ guy, you have to move on and do something different.

” Harry Potter’ will be gargantuan,” Breznican said of “Deathly Hallows, Part 2″ being the next big competition for “Dark of the Moon.” “People are going to want to see it again and again, and that’s a real tribute to the filmmakers and J.K. Rowling’s storytelling. It’s a story where you invest a lot in those characters and they invest a lot back. There is a lot of sacrifice and affection; that movie packs an emotional punch,” he said. “It’s going to blow ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’ out of the water.”
