Transformers 5, 6 and 7 Dated Through 2019

Paramount Pictures Franchise

Well, God hate us: Paramount Pictures has officially announced release dates for Transformers 5, 6, and 7, taking us all the way into summer 2019.

As you already know, Michael Bay has confirmed he will return yet again to direct Transformers 5 and Mark Wahlberg of Transformers: Age of Extinction is returning as the human lead.

Featuring a script written by Iron Man scribes Art Marcum & Matt Holloway and Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down), the film is now officially set to arrive into theaters on June 23, 2017, followed by Transformers 6 on June 8, 2018 and then Transformers 7 on June 28, 2019.

That’s right, there’s now going to be one Transformers movie every year so they’ll likely being filmed back-to-back. Does it mean that Bay is doing all three? I honestly don’t care.

I’ve always wanted to see a Transformers vs Godzilla and my wish will come true: the sixth installment will compete at the box office with the Godzilla sequel.

What do you guys think?

Update: Speaking on an investor conference call for Toy Fair, Tom Warner, the Transformers franchise leader for Hasbro, revealed that the announced 2018 film is not Transformers 6 but actually a spin-off film focusing on the character Bumblebee, with Transformers 6 actually being the 2019 release (via CS).

“This summer we worked closely with a talented team of A-list screenwriters to map out the future of the Transformers cinematic universe, and as Brian announced earlier, things kick off in a major way in 2017 with the release of Transformers 5 in June. And we’re working on a spin-off movie centered around Bumblebee for 2018 and the next chapter for 2019.”
